Guilty and Guilt

In the extreme heat of the summer ... as one thing leads to another ... in Mercury Retrograde ...

Racial tension mount after the verdict in the Travyon Martin case. Do you suppose that there is a method to the madness - like a government group behind this looking to create a riot to once again demonstrate that martial law is the answer. Something about this feels very wrong ... maybe everything.

Martial Law reminds us of the Boston Marathon Bombings in April - accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev currently on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. Really?!

How about Ariel Castro pleading not guilty to 977 counts of murder, rape, and holding three women captive for about a decade in his home?

What constitutes a crime varies in the eyes of the players involved. Where one person sees guilt - another sees justification. This takes us to the Edward Snowden Affair that plays out like a movie lingering in Russia for now.

So there you have it - legal matters and covert affairs. How does one recover? There are so many other intertwined stories whose truth may never be known. Do you have a secret that affects others? If you can live with it - put it out of your mind - great. If guilt is driving you crazy, find someone to talk too. A professional is best. Sooner or later that secret will come back and bite you in the ass.
