Verrry interesting article in The Huffington Post about some Canadians who were denied access to the U.S. because of their mental illnesses.
This so illustrates the current Mercury in Virgo opposition to Chiron in Pisces. Talk about the details (Mercury) of your wounds (Chiron) being exposed. Virgo can be harsh when confronted with something that makes it uncomfortable. What's more disturbing to the Virgo sense of order then the Piscean unknown? Throw in an enabling trine to Pluto in Capricorn and you have some government (Capricorn) paranoia (Pluto).
Yes, I know a trine is supposed to be positive but here's a quick astrology lesson. If it's hooked into a challenging aspect (like Mercury opposite Chiron) that flowing energy can just increase what's discordant.
It can go the other way too. Virgo rules doctors. Pluto's trine to Mercury has the potential to transform people's thoughts about wounds and vulnerability. Pluto can give Mercury the urge to look beneath the surface and find practical applications (Virgo) for healing (Chiron).
