Something about Senator Ted Cruz
A US Senator since January 2013, Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada on December 22, 1970 as the Sun reached Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business (birth hour unknown.) His ‘reigning need’ (Tyl) is shown by Moon in Libra, ruled by evaluating, attracting, sometimes vengeful Venus, a planet associated with money. Libra’s Airy nature denotes intellectual and legal interests along with creativity shown to best advantage by a use of balance though a certain emotionally detached attitude may be present.
No, the harmony preferred by Libra, Venus, and a Venus-ruled Moon (emotions, feelings, moods, physical body) aren’t always in store for a man born with a gracious helping of powerful planetary aspects relating to his natal Sun (ego; willpower; the Quest) and Mercury (thinking processes; planning; communications) and young Sen. Cruz sports a few such aspects which have provided him with the inherent motivation and drive to reach that pinnacle called Capitol Hill.
You may wish to read a further analysis of his planetary aspects on my Political Astrology site Stars Over Washington where a fuller astro-portrait may be found.
Since the Moon remained in Libra for the 24 hours of Dec 22, 1970, a precise birth hour isn’t required in order to consider Sen. Cruz’s Sun Cap-Moon Libra combination of energies with the Sun signifying the conscious mind (adult) and the Moon denoting the unconscious (child), and of course the unconscious mind tends to be the more powerful motivator of the two. Getting them working together is the height of successful creativity and ‘self-actualization’ and the square (90 degrees) between Capricorn and Libra supplies the dynamism one must have in order to ‘make the effort’ necessary to succeed.
Sen. Cruz’s Sun and Moon signs, one ruled by conservative, austere Saturn, planet of the status quo, the other by Venus, as noted, above, gives a Venus-Saturn signature (loyalty but dissatisfaction) which is further emphasized by a natal opposition between Venus (Sco) and Saturn Rx (Tau) across the intense Taurus-Scorpio axis of Values and Money, in mid-degrees. Plus, Saturn in Taurus is quite determined to be a preserver of values, an attitude helpful in Politics, yet whose values is another question entirely.
Curious fact: the ‘King of Terror’ Solar Eclipse that Nostradamus warned us about–August 11, 1999 @18Leo21–has Mr. Cruz’s position of Saturn (16Tau17 Rx v 16Tau52 Direct) which basically makes the difficult *’Mother of All Eclipses’ Cruz’s Saturn Return, age 29, a time when responsibilities should be accepted and increasing maturity is expected–or else. For as you know, Saturn is a karmic planet bringing along a reaping of what was sown in the past.) Naturally, all who were born around 1970 have planetary links to the 1999 eclipse and the May 2000 Great Conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn may be of great personal significance for them as well.
Sun Cap-Moon Libra denotes our brazen junior senator as a crusader who duels with shadows and who possesses a paradoxical personality that’s conservative yet liberal. And though he seems to be in charge of his well-regulated life, an ‘ideas v action’ motif may be noted. Yet with his purposeful outlook, he can achieve most anything in life though negative thinking may interfere at times. Feeling the weight of his duties acutely, the serious Senator Cruz is inclined to be opportunistic, skeptical to the point of cynicism, and pedantic in any particular area he considers his expertise.
If a cause is deemed to be worthwhile, Sen. Cruz is happy to enjoin the fight with cunning shrewdness and a dry, factual approach. Although he prefers to behave politely (Uranus in Libra), he wants his words to have dramatic punch. Business and financial astuteness may be in evidence with much support from natal Jupiter in Big Business Scorpio, the sign ruled by ruthless, overbearing Mars-Pluto influences.
At age 42, Senator Cruz may be yet to learn that a ‘stiff upper lip’ isn’t always the best solution to other people’s problems, or to his own; a heavy sense of justice which ‘must be done’, plus, a healthy self-opinion refuses to allow his ego to be trod upon which are tendencies aided by the cool, emotionally detached Libra Moon. Thus, any criticism can seem to ‘roll off his back’, as they say–including that of his fellow Republicans.
Now let’s close our Cap-Libra consideration of Ted Cruz with the most apt of three “Images for Integration” (conscious + unconscious) given for this combo by Charles & Suzi Harvey in their excellent book, Sun Sign-Moon Sign–it has a quaint, knightly flavor to it:
“A visionary statesman fights a duel to see justice done.”
Somehow I can easily imagine the senator challenging an adversary by smacking him with his grey morning gloves, can’t you?
*Since the brutal WTC attacks of 9/11/01 and America’s subsequent brutalities and over-reaches, we see clearly what Nostradamus’ warning involved in preparation for the much-touted New Millennium. One basic reason it’s called ‘The Mother of All Eclipses’ is because it falls into the 1 North Saros Series. The initial 1N eclipse occurred on January 4, 1639 @13Cap48 (opposite US natal Sun of July 4, 1776 thus personalizing the August 1999 eclipse for our nation’s presidents, the White House, and the American people–in Astrology’s past-present-future kind of way.)
Additionally, 1N is the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of the JFK Assassination Nov 22, 1963 and of the First Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 by Freemason President Harry Truman.

Today’s post at Stars Over Washington gives details and a view of the horoscope of February 25, 2013′s Full Moon in Virgo, sign of jobs, work, service, and health, with the chart set for the Capitol Building, Washington DC.
And as you know, various services in the US are due for interruption and more job losses are predicted because of ‘sequestration’ cuts which are likely to be implemented beginning March 1st unless Congress lifts itself up and shows more wisdom in financial matters than they’ve demonstrated so far. Such are the Machiavellian tactics of Washington politicians egged on by their wealthy billionaire backers against We the People as they plan austerity for us, more riches bwo tax breaks for them!
On Monday February 25th, congress members skulk back to the Capitol Building after their week-long vacation under the rays of a Virgo Full Moon which perfects on Monday at 3:26 pm est and colors this congressional session.
Implications of the Full Moon’s Sun Pisces-Moon Virgo Water-Earth blend of energies (mud-stuck yet practical, swamped by duties they should have already met) may be interesting to note: ‘analysis and synthesis, nervous and fretful, large-minded but good with details, devoted servants with refined tastes’. This blend denotes a confrontation (Full Moon = culmination, and awareness of relationship dynamics) between intuition and reason with Pisces unable to stand much reality, and Virgo all for making clear-eyed assessments and finding practical solutions (though what Congress is actually ‘devoted’ to seems suspect.)
A caution for this session of Congress which begins with a Virgo Full Moon, is to avoid perfectionism and an overly critical attitude toward others along with a tendency to allow emotions and rationality to clash–for it’s difficult to distinguish between them.
In Sun Sign-Moon Sign, the Harveys give interesting Images for Integration to describe the Sun Pisces-Moon Virgo pair of energies: “Small events bring enormous consequences…Faith and reason shake hands.”
Perhaps the best advice for everyone–very much including our political miscreants and radicals about to bring our financial matters to a halt–comes from famed psychologist Roberto Assagioli who was born under the influences of the Sun Pisces-Moon Virgo blend and observed that:
“Without forgiveness life is governed by…an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.”
Hmm…wise advice for Washington DC, isn’t it?

Re: President Barack Obama’s second Inauguration, a private Oath of Office to be taken on Sunday January 20, 2013 and the public Oath taken on Monday January 21, 2013 (since January 20th falls on a Sunday.)
On my Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington, you’ll find on display astro-notes with both Inauguration 2013 horoscopes set for the Capitol Building Washington DC (where else?)
For my wonderful WordPress blog, I have a few astro-notes concerning both days because the president’s private Oath will be sworn under the rays of Sun Aquarius-Moon Taurus (Air-Earth = practical idealism) but there’s a different mood on Monday with Sun AQ-Moon Gemini (Air-Air = natural communicator.) Let’s consider both blends if you’re willing!
Now you know that in Mundane Astrology, Sun = the leader, or, the president, and Moon = the people, or, the public. Plus, Sun represents the conscious mind, Moon the unconscious; Sun = male, Moon = female. It’s all about energy and with Sun-Moon blends, it’s the combination of energies that tells more than simply Sun or Moon signs can divulge on their own.
Jan 20, 2013 noon est, when the previous presidential term officially ends and the new administration begins:
Sun AQ-Moon Tau is a level-headed, capable, friendly, ambitious, and entrepreneurial combination that harmoniously unites the emotional nature with intellectual power. Conflicts may result from love of home and comfort vying against future-oriented insights. It’s a good blend for a leader for it inspires confidence in others through reliability and an ability to debate issues rationally.
Two famous folk who share Sun AQ-Moon Tau natally are included with a quote from each:
“A hungry man is not a free man.” –Adlai E. Stevenson
“Only by transcending the everyday, by seeing human life in larger terms, can the individual escape the slow strangulation of permanent errors.” –E.G. Price
The blend’s “Image for Integration” given by Charles & Suzi Harvey in their book Sun Sign-Moon Sign is more than a little revealing of the direction society is being sent and of the president who will continue to man the helm for four more years, much to the dismay of his political opponents:
“The resident caretaker of a ‘New Age’ community sips his Beaujolais as he systematically does the year’s accounts.”
Monday January 21, 2013 Sun AQ-Moon Gem changes to a lighter tone with the public mood turned excitably Geminian. This breezy blend is progressive unlike a Taurean flavored Moon with Taurus being ‘the preserver’; a strong social conscience is indicated along with wit and a philosophical bent though the combo’s flexibility mixes with a stubborn streak provided by the Fixed (rigid) energy of Aquarius.
Emotionally naive, this blend denotes detachment which is shown on one level by a carefree nonchalance. Being drawn to ‘New Age’ thinking tallies with yesterday’s Aquarian-Taurean energies for changing the world seems a distinct possibility; communicating radical ideas goes along with journalistic interests, plus, public relations is a natural field of endeavor along with the high tech devices that seem so necessary in today’s social networking and mobile blogging world.
The innate charm, friendliness, and sociability of Monday’s blend should enhance our nation’s inaugural celebrations, balls, and parties perfectly!
Sun AQ-Moon Gem is shared natally by social activist Saul Alinsky (!), comedian Jack Benny, “wise man”
Elihu Root, and Thomas Paine who helpfully informed us that, “The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related, that it is difficult to class them separately.”
(Especially on Capitol Hill these days though ‘the sublime’ too often goes missing entirely–jc.)
There are two “Images for Integration” for Sun AQ-Moon Gem which apply quite well to Inauguration 2013 and the second one amazes me with its aptness to the president and his Inaugural Address, I think. See if you agree:
“A child in a balloon drifts over the city reporting back by portable phone on all below…A white blackbird charms the garden with its song.” (Harveys.)
Happy Inauguration Day, Everyone!
Astro-Notes of Autumn 2012
by Jude Cowell
Well, the colors of the leaves in Georgia had turned nicely but now most have been swept from the trees by this week’s stormy winds. Prior to Hurricane/Cyclone Sandy’s landfall on the East Coast, I posted a few words about it in relation to the Full Moon in Taurus which perfected Monday afternoon, October 29, 2012, and added its influence to the high tides.
But there may also be ‘Sandy’ significance in the horoscope of the November 13, 2012 Solar Eclipse in water sign Scorpio if one wishes to find it. Here’s an image of the horoscope set for Washington DC–click the ‘Scorpio’ link to read my astro-notes on this Water-Water eclipse:
As you know, “Water-Water” refers to the sign element of the Sun and Moon which are, of course, conjunct during a solar eclipse. This blend of elements is on the feeling-intuitive-imagination level (double Water) and indicates a period when emotions are deep–such as when your home and/or business is flooded away or washed out to sea–and folks become nostalgic about the past. It’s a gut-wrenching time, folks, and my heart goes out to my northern neighbors.
With double Scorpio, clearly reasoned arguments and objectivity may be missing from the collective mood just now which interferes with political choices and confusing (on purpose!) campaign ads but hopefully early voting may have aided with the difficulty. See Storm Boosts Early Voting Turnout in Parts of Ohio.
Yes, a Solar Eclipse in Mars-Pluto-ruled Scorpio is considered karmic (by which I mean, reaping what was sown) and involves such things as intense desires, lack of compromise on strong convictions, sarcasm, jealousy, astute perceptions, loyalty v betrayal, suspicion, cynicism, and zeal for the truth. And yes, death, which has come to victims of Sandy’s wrath. (See SE horoscope’s 8th house with both Mars and Pluto posited there.)
Even the Oct 29th Full Moon horoscope shows potential for loss of life with Mars and Jupiter Angular in the chart (set for D.C. where President Obama returned to monitor storm operations which he has done exceedingly well, last I heard.)
Well, the month of November is always a Scorpionic season, it’s true, but this year the Full Moon in Taurus–with Sun in Scorpio–and the within-range of Sandy (two weeks time frame) Solar Eclipse–have brought intense Scorpio energies more to the front burner than anyone could possibly like. #
Update 11.1.12: the horoscope with details has just been published concerning the Gemini Lunar Eclipse of November 28, 2012, if you’re interested. jc
The following text is an un-edited re-publish by its author Jude Cowell and orginally appeared on my Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington; this may be the first time in all my blogging years that I’ve republished an entire article of my own:
A Solar Eclipse in intense Scorpio marks November 2012 Elections
by Jude Cowell
As you know, Scorpio is a karmic (reap-what’s-sown) sign and one must act on the up’n'up in order to make any real progress when a Solar Eclipse in Scorpio manifests. Intensity and force are provided by Scorpio’s ruler and sub-ruler, Mars and Pluto, which are most formidable when their energies act in tandem and together, often supply a karmic “something you were always meant to do” feeling. And with Scorpio, an image of political “snake oil” is typically applied.
With all eclipses behaving in Uranian fashion as ‘wild cards of the Universe’ and thus having a reputation for uncovering even the darkest of secrets, we may expect November 2012 to be revelatory for its unmasking of Scorpionic secrets with a distinct potential for betrayals and suspicion that, when used in political propaganda, may have the effect of swaying voters in one direction or another. Some of us may even resort to ‘opting out’ and staying home on November 6 but this would be a a very bad mistake, folks, because that’s what undermining factions want Americans to do. Plus, remember how neocon warmongers simply crowed over the beauty of Afghanistan and Iraq holding “democratic” elections under George Bush? Well then, even though US elections are rigged, let’s not give them up so easily for they same so’n'sos ought to be crowing for our democratic process, don’t you think?
The Solar Eclipse of November 2012
The month of November 2012 is notable not only for America’s hugely important presidential and congressional elections (November 6, with voting planet Mercury Stationary that very day @4Sag18 and turning retrograde at 6:03 pm est–is this the electorate ‘turning back’ to President Obama?), but for its 15 North Solar Eclipse @21Sco56 on November 13. This eclipse occurs close enough to Nov 6 be the Solar Eclipse of Election Day 2012 (within two weeks), with its theme of ‘joy through commitment.’ (Brady.) Well, I don’t like to type this out loud but with Mercury turning Rx on November 6, we may expect that results are disputed and that deciding outcomes may drag on, possibly until mid-December when a forward Mercury reaches and moves beyond its shadow degree of 4Sag18.
Please Pass the Turkey and the Lunar Eclipse
Though Thanksgiving Day is early this year (Nov 22), a busy November brings a second cosmic event–an almost-Thanksgiving Lunar Eclipse on November 28 @6Gem36 with the Sun falling into the happier Sagittarian zone of the Zodiac. The Moon is near transit Jupiter 11Gem54 Rx with US natal Uranus 8Gem55 stimulated. (Moon-Jupiter = US n Uranus: confidence; expectation of reward. –Tyl.) However, you’ll note that the Lunar Eclipse ruler, Mercury, is Direct @18Sco24–approaching the Nov 13 Solar Eclipse degree, but the Sun’s ruler, Jupiter, is Rx, another indicator of delays and hindrances relating to leadership (Sun-Jupiter), and potentially to money, support, bankers, and other corporatists (Jupiter.)
Also, this Lunar Eclipse is significant for being one of 2012′s close-to-Earth Supermoons, as defined by master astrologer Richard Nolle.
Another Factor about November 6′s Mercury Retrograde Station
Though Mercury trines technology inventor Uranus Rx @5Ari09–voting machine glitches made easy? or, easily solved?), its Rx Station strongly opposes President Obama’s natal Moon in Gemini (Moon = ‘reigning need’–Tyl), an indicator that his plans and schedules are in a something of a bind, and that Mr. Obama will be confronted with conflicting opinions regarding his re-election. Someone may have a change (Mercury) of heart (Moon)–whether for the incumbent president or against him remains to be seen but Mercurial young people may be of special note, and obviously reporters and journalists will be in the mix. Personally, I wouldn’t rule out the Chamber of Commerce (Mercury) playing what is perhaps the largest role in opposing the president for they seem determined to do so.
At any rate, his re-election progress is blocked and will be obstructed again once Mercury retraces its path to 1-2-3-4 Sag and opposes natal Moon. Before long, President Obama’s goals will once again be implemented from the White House Oval Office after the dust and deceptions of Election Day 2012 settle.
At least until noon est January 21, 2013 Capitol Building Washington DC
Rising once agin are the mid-degrees of Venus-ruled Taurus, a money sign with an underbelly of greed, intolerance, bigotry, racism, overindulgence, laziness, sloth, and a stubborn will that bashes against all comers. If you know anyone with a large streak of Taurus showing in their personalities, you know the sort of archetypal figure I describe here! jc (last paragraph added as an update 10.11.12)
If you’ve followed news on the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, OK, you may wish to check out a 4-minute video on the topic:
Plus, if you’re curious about the horoscope of the bombing (April 19, 1995 9:02 am cdt OK City) try this:
Click to enlarge the chart to see expansive Jupiter @14Sag53 Rx opposing The Jolly One’s current position in Gemini. So with Jupiter turning Rx in Gemini, his 1995 position will be triggered off and on in the coming months. Perhaps we’ll hear (Gemini) more (Jupiter) about the tragic OK City terrorist attack.
Plus, the bombing horoscope’s rising degree 8Gem24 ‘brought up’ America’s natal Uranus @8Gem55, the planet of revolt, revolution, and radical politics.
There’s even an eclipse degree at Midheaven (The Goal), a Solar Eclipse that didn’t manifest until February 7, 2008 @17AQ45 in the 10 North Saros Series (issues of ‘communications, frustrating events via news, paperwork, or young people; drained energy’–Brady) which may mean nothing, of course, yet in 1995 there were questions about the destruction of papers and records in the Federal Building, if memory serves. (Ex: government malfeasance–or, records concerning the Siege of Waco February 28, 1993? As you know, 1993 is the year of the Great Conjunction/s of Uranus and Neptune, planets of The Enlightenment which now, as then, promotes rationality above all else.
Their conjunctions’ primary degree of the current cycle (which began in 1993): ’18 Capricorn’ = “A Union Jack Flies From a British Warship” which Marc Edmund Jones gives as, “smug or strong-armed paternalism,” Rudhyar as,” POLITICAL POWER” in the Sabian Symbols. It’s all about keeping law and order, you see, and the dangers of abusing or misusing authority.
Anyway, one conspiracy-type tidbit of info I was unaware of when I wrote the above post concerning the tragedy in Oklahoma City is that 10N happens to be the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of the secretive, lap-of-luxury Bilderberg Group which officially organized into a cabal of movers-n-shakers during May 29 — 31, 1954. You remember them–the ones who met in Chantilly, Virginia in June 2012 just as they did in June 2008 when then-candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton left their campaign trails to join the meeting.
And then-Senator Obama emerged as the Bilderberg Choice for US president 2008…and Hillary Rodham Clinton stepped aside.
Now this is handy:

Over at Julie Demboski’s Astrology we are advised to Take Shelter, Be Ready for the weekend of May 18-20, 2012 and as you know, the Cosmos will put on a brilliant display on May 20th with a Solar Eclipse @ 00Gem21.
Perhaps some astro-notes on the Sun-Moon blend of the eclipse may interest you since it’s a double Air combination of energies (mental) and you’re obviously intellectually advanced if you follow Astrology!
Plus, with all the social and systemic unrest in financial markets and governments, it seems notable to me that Sun Gemini-Moon Gemini is the natal personality blend of none other than John Maynard Keynes who informed us that, “Ideas shape the course of history.” I’ll add two more quotes from famous people who share the blend at the end of this post, one of which relates to the social ‘wedge issues’ that Republicans are attempting to divert public attention–and votes–toward during Campaign 2012. Well, the tactic worked for them before, right?
Sun Gem-Moon Gem denotes lots of nervous energy in the Collective as Summer 2012 heats up with impatience toward the emotions of others, and there is a multitude of role-playing, game-playing, lateral thinking, and fast talking (some of which may be duplicitous–Gemini) in evidence. Criticism, analysis, cutting remarks, contradiction, and mimicking of others will be used or experienced with some people being desperate for rational control of our minds.
Lively, friendly gatherings are preferred, yet self-absorption is indulged in, and double standards are on the Gem-Gem menu for the next 6 months under the rays of this Solar Eclipse. Other themes include the usual Mercurial ones: trade, commmerce, travel, communications, and modes of thinking along with computer-related matters; teaching and learning are prominent and in the news, with ‘news’ being a province of Mercury as well.
In the realm of Politics (and Political Astrology), a sextile from Neptune in early Pisces affects both Sun and Moon and we find that leaders (Sun) may use their talents to confuse people by giving fragmented information which divides our attention to various ‘pieces’ of the puzzle rather than to the whole picture; a politician–or his staff members–may be successful in providing only the info that throws the best light upon the politician or party. (What else is new, right?)
Simultaneously, nebulous Neptune’s effect on the Moon (the people; the public) indicates that we must guard against these obfuscations, delusions, and illusions if we wish to avoid being ensnared in the fantasy of false reality. One aid for this is to take time to research (Mercury!) deeply and consider other opinions so that we see beyond superficial ideas and attitudes since surface appearances seldom tell the full–or true–tale of any matter or issue. Yes, half-truths are the handiest and most-often believed tools for deception.
Compassion and empathy will be felt (and needed) by many yet religious leaders may be the very culprits who mislead, exploit, and misdirect us–Mercury rules the eclipse and two of Mercury’s archetypes are The Thief and The Trickster.
Beware too much indulgence in negative escapism which weakens the mind and body such as alcohol and other drugs, or whatever suppresses your truest and deepest emotions (movies, TV, sex, etc.) A respite from duties is fine, of course, but 24/7 avoidance of responsibilities will come back to haunt–it’s usually better to deal with reality before it deals with you in a harsher way.
Expect partisan ‘dog whistles’ and ideological code words and catch phrases to continue to be used in abundance through the summer as Campaign 2012 grinds on; also indicated are: refined feelings, instability (Gemini, a Mutable sign), indolence, lying, strange influences, inner visions, and far-reaching wishes which make for a mentally challenging, stimulating Solar Eclipse influence, and with Mercury ruling Young People, the Occupy Movement gains momentum and takes its place in the news again though some ‘eclipsing’ such as police action is to be expected as The Establishment (Saturn) fights back against social change.
All this being said, we must remember that all eclipses, both Solar and Lunar, are considered ‘wild cards of the Universe’ so it’s impossible to say precisely what unexpected events may occur but quirky disruptor Uranus most closely describes eclipse energy. Where 00Gem21 appears in your natal chart and how the degree aspects your planets and points determine how you will be personally affected. (See Julie’s advice linked above!)
Now here are quotes from two Sun Gem-Moon Gem folk that demonstrate some of the Geminian energies and mindsets we’ll experience with the May 20, 2012 Solar Eclipse:
“One of my chief regrets during my years in the theater is that I couldn’t sit in the audience and watch me.”
“As I grow older and older
and totter towards the tomb
I find that I care less and less
Who goes to bed with whom.”
Well put, Dorothy Sayers!
