Weird Science: Saturn-Uranus And Morgellon's Disease



One feature of the ongoing Saturn-Uranus opposition is that one can expect weird things to come hatching out... and in one case that's in the news: literally hatching out. Of your skin.

The Centers For Disease Control (CDC) are finally investigating a weird phenomenon I've kept an eye on for some time: Morgellon's Disease, a medical condition which a lot of doctors don't even believe exists.

Morgellon's comes with an interesting collection of symptoms. Often sufferers report confusion, joint pain, and memory problems. But that's not the weird part. The primary symptom is a sense of crawling under the skin, like bugs are burrowing through you. And then the rash breaks out.

And then tiny, mysterious coloured fibres hatch out of you. Sometimes white, black, red or blue.

Another mysterious thing about Morgellon's: most doctors treat it as "hysterical parasitosis:" in other words... "you're crazy because you think you've got bugs inside you." This, despite the very weird but very obvious fibers involved.

There is another Saturn-Uranus possibility that has been mentioned: that Morgellon's is caused by Agrobacterium, a common bacterium used in various genetic-engineering projects. One of the reasons Agrobacterium is used for this is that it was believed, at first, that it did not infect humans or animals.

Oops.

So it's possible... just possible... that we are now, for the first time, seeing one of the stranger unintended consequences of modern genetic engineering technology.

Mainstream science... though I have a great love and admiration for it... doesn't really want to admit that things it doesn't believe in are real. Like, you know... astrology, for example. Scientists are human, and part of being human is the ability to deny the obvious. But science... True Science... is the practice of accepting observations as they are, and attempting to make sense of them. The Saturn-Uranus opposition is giving us all the opportunity to be scientists with our own lives. It's just a matter of reading the data.

Saturn rules skin, among other things. This opposition may not manifest itself in your life by you getting some strange new skin disorder. But Saturn also rules your sense of order: how life is, or how it's supposed to be. And Uranus rules the strange and unexpected. Odds are good you are feeling the changes brought by the Saturn-Uranus opposition in some department of your life.

So: what's come hatching out of your life lately?

I've read of these odd fibers and their perplexing nature. Never heard of the genetic engineering connection. Yikes.

Interesting. I first heard of this disease which most doctors seem to diagnose as "delusional parasitosis" when Saturn in Leo opposed Neptune (delusions, illusions and betrayal) in Aquarius and connected it to that aspect as it fits the symbolism of this opposition as well. Delusions (neptune) about skin (saturn), sufferers (neptune) betrayed (neptune) by conventional scinence (saturn).

Interesting post Mathew. We don't know what we are messing with.
Skin is Saturn? I thought it was bone.

its caused by a microscopic worm,it has a feeding tube in its center(its shaped like a "T" )this worm goes inside its victim.

EAT A LARGE AMOUNT OF RAW GARLIC IT WILL KILL IT. THE BLACK THING THAT LOOKS LIKE THREAD UNDER A MICROSCOPE IS A SECONDARY PARSITE CAUSED BY THIS WORM AND I FIND THAT IT IS ALSO BEING KILLED BY RUBBING RAW GARLIC ON THE SKIN.
