A look at the 11/17 natal chart of the TS shows this to be indeed
the case.  As mentioned earlier, Mars/Saturn in the 8th opposing
Uranus in the 2nd is all about authorities or institutions
(collective values generally) stifling or attacking individual
initiative and paradigm-shifting.  First the outside world
treated HPB this way.  Later, the negativity having been
imprinted onto the TS, this opposition manifested mostly
internally.  One example is the theories that were concocted to
avoid listening to Krishnamurti (e.g.  personality got in the
way, BOTS took over.) But all down the line, "no good deed goes
unpunished" with this configuration.

Hmm.  Collective healing is a laudable goal, and I'm eager to
learn what others think are skillful means to attain it.  But
somehow I think that the murky stuff is a bit more integral to
the energy field than just bits and pieces that we can shake off.
I recommend (without a clue as to how to go about it) a Jungian
approach, recognizing that there is an unacknowledged shadow side
that needs to be integrated.
