Sara Heath Palin, Feb 11, 1964, Sandpoint Idaho, sunrise: 7:06:26 am PST, Moon in Capricorn and in Aquarius before day ends.
~You’ll also be aware that a birth time of ’4:40 pm’ is being used by many astrologers which gives Palin a Leo ascendant to go along with her mane of hair and attraction to being onstage.
Gov Palin’s natal Moon, at sunrise 29Cap11, is near the natal Moon of John McCain 27Cap03. although depending on her actual time of birth, natal Moon could be as late in zodiacal degrees as 8AQ08.
There are connections between her planets and those of McCain:
McCain: Sun 6Vir02 and Neptune 16Vir07; Palin: Uranus 8Vir43 and Pluto 13Vir28.
Palin’s natal Sun 21AQ55; Mars 23AQ08 are being visited by slow-moving, inspired if undermining Neptune. This is giving her a rather problematic midpoint picture and I’m not sure how it will affect her VP term if she gets it.
Because the trigger is veiling Neptune, there is some kind of masking going on with her true purpose (Sun) and action principle (Mars) which may relate to the current independent investigation of a firing of an Alaskan government employee, and what may have been personal vindictiveness on Palin’s part.
Sun/Mars = Neptune: undermining of one’s vocational position; dishonest activity; receiving notice; disappointment; feeling ‘off track’; illness; the deceived or deceptive husband.
In the case mentioned, the midpoint energy and transit may be operating in its usual ‘AC-DC’ way – from Palin, toward her, or both.
This is too quick a study for I must mosey elsewhere in a while, but looking at Palin’s Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (1 South), we see that it is the: ‘flooded with many options/ideas and their enthusiastic expression’ Series. (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology’) and its meaning may relate to the August 1, 2008 Solar Eclipse season we are now in because that is the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of Senator McCain:
How relate? Both Series have to do with ‘options’ and McCain’s has a ‘worry clearing and the cosmos showing a solution with many options opening up’ flavor.
Seems Sara Palin as his VP running mate is the option to improve his prez chances!
One thing to note as well, however, is that the two Repulicans have a Nodal Axis sign ‘flip’…his North Node is in early Capricorn, hers in Cancer, which means they will either bring out the best or the worst in one another.
In transits, NN to SN is a time when associations tend to end unless they are very strong – if so, they make adjustments and become closer and more committed. If you saw the photo of them hugging today at the Dayton rally, you may agree that all seems well as of yet!
Or maybe I should say: too soon to tell, too close to call.
Update Sep 3: Oh dear. There’s been a Palin limerick posted…
Note – Sept 10: from henceforth I promise to use ‘Sarah’ rather than ‘Sara’! Thanks, Monica! ;p
UPDATE 10.11.08: I want to add three natal midpoint pictures only one of which depends upon a birth time in which case I am using the unverified ’4:40 pm’ chart which gives her Pluto/Mc = NN: desire to gain leadership by force. (This picture would apply if the 4:40 pm time is correct.)
Jupiter/Neptune = Mercury: rasing hopes; inspiration; talking a lot; putting on an act; changing character.
Neptune/NN = Pluto: difficulty blending one’s personal perspectives with others.
And since yesterday’s release of the investigative report on Palin’s “Trooper-Gate” scandal and the finding that she did, in fact, abuse her office in the case, I peeked at her natal asteroids which have to do with power or the abuse of it:
Hidalgo (often prominent in a woman’s chart when in a leadership role) 18Lib52 Rx…Hidalgo ‘expects to be in charge’ and was higlighted by the Sun as the report was released; fiesty and tenacious Toro 22Sag38; and Atlantis, keywords: ‘abuse of power’ at 21Lib35 Rx, also recently highlighted by the Sun.
~Atlantis also relates to America as the idyllic ”New Atlantis” of the Utopians whose decendants may be part of society’s current crew of bedeviling and chaos-creating social tinkerers.~
Hidalgo’s North Node is in the 21 – 22 Aries range which is opposing Palin’s natal Hidalgo.
Plus, you’ll be happy to know that there is a personal name asteroid for ‘Sara’ which has its North Node at 00Lib+ conjunct America’s natal Midheaven in the Sibly chart (July 4, 1776; 5:10 pm LMT: Philadelphia, PA) – good for public career matters for the governor of Alaska.
Known for her excellent timing ability, the Moon this morning is traversing Leo, and she has met up with an asteroid whose keywords include:
*corporatism and corporations; the family; marriage; close relationships; organizations; sociability; harmony.
As noted a few minutes ago, Gov Palin’s husband works for British Petroleum.
Asteroid’s name is Cupido, which has obvious links to love-struck Cupid, so it’s harmony on the GOP ticket!
This morning Moon and Cupido met up in the 21 – 22 Leo degree range tropically speaking. ’22 Leo’ is the ‘own worst enemy’ degree (Anthony Louis, citing tradition) and indicates one who is not free to act in their own best interests.
I’ve also seen ’22Leo’ referred to as the ‘foot in mouth’ degree which may not affect the McCain-Palin campaign in the altogether, but it will be interesting to hear how the speechifying goes today at the McCain rally.
Could Freudian slips be in the wings for McCain or Palin? The Dems gaffed them this week at the DNC (and consciously, imo!)
Let’s see if I can do some early math:
McCain promotes war for oil + VP’s husband profits from oil = another team of oil folk in the White House!

Peek some more at:
Yes, first woman governor of Alaska, Sara Palin is McCain’s VP pick.
So..a lady prez if McCain can’t go the distance…
Described as a ‘staunch conservative’ this lady is ‘anti’ lots of social issues such as gay marriage and abortion.
And her husband works for oil giant BP.
I’m thinking that once again the abortion issue is a major weakness in the Dem platform, but the oil industry connection with the GOP’s VP choice should be made a large issue, too.
Wonder if Huckabee is somewhere crying into his Near Beer?
At a noon rally in Dayton, OH, candidate John McCain is scheduled to steal Obama’s godlike thunder today by announcing his choice for his Vice Presidential running mate.
Funny story on NPR this morning about a certain reformist lady governor of Alaska whose name had shown up on Wikipedia this morning as a ’presumptive’ nominee, but minutes later someone (such as a Rove operative? a McCain staffer?) took down the teasing entry.
Shades of red herring! Or…is it?
Was it a small attempt on a partison’s part to create mystery and excitement where little exist? McSame has to be the droopiest GOP candidate since Bob Dole and Dole didn’t have an elitist, torturing, civil liberties-ignoring George Bush to follow.
Well, it’s all okay by me because my dollars-to-moldy-donut is on Mike Huckabee. Any thoughts pre-noon on McCain’s pick?
Comcast, already reserving the right to pull the plug on users as it suits them, will take a goose-step closer toward undemocratic internet service when its new rules go into effect on Oct 1, 2008.
Limiting its customers to 250 GB of downloady goodness, this marks a new low in the world’s tilt toward totalitarianism and a two-tiered internet of limits and censorship.
Not being a Comcast user has never made me this happy before!
And did I mention mainstream media reach-arounds advancing totalitarian rule?
The Financial Times and the “Self-Confessed Mastermind of 9/11″
By James Petras
In recent days there is mounting evidence of the advance of totalitarianism
in the political and media mainstream. The entire Western world, led by the
United States, has embraced a Georgian regime, which invaded South Ossetia
totally demolishing its capital city of 50,000 residents, assassinated 1500
men, women and children and dozens of Russian peace keepers.
Foreign Spigot off for US Consumers
By Max Fraad Wolff
Alongside falling prices, rising mortgage rates, stricter credit conditions
and general malaise, the structure that supports American home ownership is
being condemned by market valuation. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have nose
dived and been downgraded toward a smaller future – and these are more
important names for your future than Joe, Sam, Kathy, Mitt, Meg …

It’s Time for Real Change: How the Democrats Helped Bush Hijack the Country
By Cynthia McKinney
Our country has been hijacked and the Democrats have proven themselves to
have been in on the plan. When it came to the Constitution, the Democratic
leadership showed us that aiding and abetting illegal spying on us was more
important to them than protecting our civil liberties.
# An article smorgasbord for you from 9/11 to loss of civil liberites and the complicit Democrats – as I’ve been fussin’ about for ages! Now I know Cynthia McKinney has been under the character destruction microscope for years, but if you can, please give her article a try.
