It’s unusual that I post such a controversial video on this particular blog but I’m feeling unusual on this Monday. The following 109-minute presentation contains opinions and information from its creators and does not necessarily conform to the views of this blogger:

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?

Two more Moons for Pluto, god of Hades
Votes for the names of Pluto’s newly discovered moons–P4 in 2011 and P5 in 2012–is open until noon on February 25th (link below) and Star Trek’s William Shatner is favoring and tweeting about “Vulcan” for one of the moons in honor of Dr. Spock’s reputed home planet.
Actually, the name “Vulcan” already appears in Astrology and is related in meaning to a hypothetical Uranian planet, Vulcanus (power; force; fated happenings.)
In Greek Mythology, Hephaistos [Latin: Vulcan) was told by Zeus to create the first woman, Pandora, as a punishment to mankind. Being of a Pandoric persuasion myself, I consider this to be perverted misogynistic hogwash! We women are an evolutionary improvement over man, imho.
Anyway, back to the forge, where Vulcan’s fire molds metals into weapons for primal violence. Here’s what my 1948 copy of DeVore’s Encyclopedia says about Vulcan:
“An hypothetical planet, much conjectured among ancient astrologers, the orbit of which is supposed to lie inside that of Mercury. Astronomers have so far found no justification for any assumption of its existence.”
And of course, Mercury orbits close to the Sun where the temperature is just what a blacksmith prefers.
Here’s a link to an article with video of SETI Institute’s Mark Showalter discussing Pluto and his discovery of its two additional moons.
Vote at Pluto Rocks!
Born with a Pisces Moon myself, I was interested to read expert astrologer Mary Plumb’s take on the abundance of Pisces energy all around us this February into March. Even Pope Benedict’s resignation is denoted with Pisces the Fish an ancient symbol of Christianity.
The horoscope for his official resignation (February 28, 2013 at 8:00 pm Rome Time) shows Venus and Neptune (sub-ruler of Pisces and god of the Seas) joined together upon Royal Star Fomalhaut @4Pisces. As a pair, Venus-Neptune describes the Catholic Church with its worship of Mary (Venus) and its mystical (Neptune) rituals and masses, and Fomalhaut’s themes include mysticism, magic, and the occult, but also inherited illness and congenital effects. As you know, the Pope cites ill health as the reason for his step-down.
Another Mary, Mary Plumb’s article Pisces Takes Over details the oceanic line-up of planets with the Moon on March 9th and the implications of this Jupiter-Neptune energy along with info on when planets are viewable in the night or early morning sky.
Plus, we’re hearing an increase in news events related to Pisces such as oceans, ships, water, fishing, oil and gas, dancing, footwear, negative escapism like alcohol and other drugs…well, here’s a good example–the cruise ship stuck in the Gulf of Mexico which is being tugged to shore–landfall sometime this evening.
And naturally a mention of the Piscean habits of secrecy, deception, and confusion is in order, right?
Surprise! Turns out it’s a spiral sort of deal as the Earth follows or is dragged through space by the Sun. Gulp!

Wedding Day Astrology of the Obamas: Oct 18, 1992
Update 1/22/13: the gist of the following post (originally published as a Page in this blog’s sidebar) went mysteriously missing, I found today, so I’m publishing it here as a post.
Original text begins here:
Since I sassily nosed into the Clinton’s Wedding Day planetary weather, it’s only fair to look at Barack and Michelle Obama’s Wedding Day, Oct 18, 1992, Chicago, Rev Jeremiah Wright presiding. (See this blog’s sidebar of Pages for more ‘Wedding Day Astrology’ reports including that of President Obama’s parents.)
From the year, 1992, you know immediately that their marriage began just prior to the Great Conjunction of Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn in 1993 (171-year-cycle):
Feb 2 (19Cap34); Aug 20 (18Cap48); and Oct 24 (18Cap33.) The last date is the one I use for the natal chart of the New World Order for the degree of Ura/Nep “18Cap” is key to understanding the beast (POLITICAL POWER.)
The pair met in 1989 at the law firm where she was employed when she was made advisor to Barack, a Harvard ‘summer associate’ who was apparently taken more with Michelle than with corporate law.
So what was going on overhead on the day of their nuptials? As above, so below!
Oct 18, 1992: Sun in Libra, Moon in Cancer, square (similar to Billary’s–Sun Lib–Moon Cap) so generally speaking, the difference between their marriages is the Moon’s positions–one in ambitious, politically minded Cap, the other in business and family oriented Cancer.
Both ladies are attorneys at law, with Michelle Obama perhaps the winner in the nurturing sweepstakes.
Again using ‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign,’ Chas & Suzi Harvey, here are some details on the Sun Lib-Moon Cancer pairing which describes, in part, their relationship:
adaptable; entertaining; sociable with a love of intimacy; domestic; musical; intuitive; devoted; nervous; intelligent curiosity; emotional; sensitive; quiet individualism and respect for others’ rights; artistic and communication power; adaptability in the face of obstacles.
Weaknesses: may over-romanticize people and places; sentimentality; emotional vulnerability; carping when others don’t look after you in the “right” way.
Relationships: close relationships bring out the best in you–eventually; tremendous need for love; childhood behavior scripts are deeply embedded and can turn the mate into mum or dad; a desire to comfort, amuse, and encourage the mate is mutual; pitfalls are being too accommodating, overly possessive, or manipulating.
~:~Image: A patriot rouses the masses to seek education, and then goes home to cook dinner for his friends.
(Well, that seems to well-describe their deal–he comes home from Washington or the campaign trail every weekend, last I heard!)
The Obamas’ I-Dos took place during the 12 South Solar Eclipse Series of June 30, 1992. Keyphrases for this Series are:
longterm worries or illness concerns; an issue will at first seem worse, then clear with sucessful outcomes. (‘Predictive Astrology,’ Bernadette Brady.)
The Eclipse was triggered during their nuptials by asteroid Juno, ‘the wife.’ Perhaps the marriage itself was a solution in some way for them–not unusual, if so.
Next manifestation of this Series: July 11, 2010 ’19Cancer.’
There’s much emotional energy in their Wedding Day chart with Moon (which remained in Cancer for the 24-hour period) dancing about with Mars 18Can04–opposite Uranus and Neptune.
Jupiter 1Lib40 trines Barack’s natal Jupiter, and is conj America’s natal Midheaven (Sibly: 5:10 pm lmt, July 4, 1776) which is a nice aspirational link, yet there are two midpoint pictures formed in the Sunrise chart (7:11:22 am cdt, Chicago, IL) which I shall mention, and which may or may not apply:
Mercury/Venus = Pluto: a sense of mission; the successful “hard sell.”
Venus/Neptune = NN: relationships are unclear in their value system; an unhappy union; disappointment in relationships.
Well, since the path of love is often strewn with disappointments of one kind or another, and since their marriage seems to suit them both, it’s time for me to bow out of their luv business and hope this thumbnail sketch has given you some small insight into the marriage of Barack and Michelle Obama.
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!
