When Pres. Obama holds a ‘first 100 days’ press conference tomorrow evening, 4.29.09, I’ll be watching and listening with SolarFire’s animated chart feature turned on so I can monitor as planets rise, set, and culminate at important points in the chart, and aspects (relationships) between planets form or separate.
If there’s anything interesting to report astrologically, I will, either here or on Stars Over Washington – but here’s a small note: at 8:00 pm edt in Washington, DC, 4.29.09, rising is ’11Scorpio’…”A Drowning Man Rescued.’
Meanwhile I’ve discovered a most enlightening explanation of the presidential ’100 days’ phenomenon and it’s from Robert Ellman writing from his excellent Intrepid Liberal Journal and including the archetype: FDR’s first 100 days.
Mr. Ellman’s article also gives his analysis of what’s going on currently in our nation so please don’t miss it!
Update Wed 11:30 pm edt: presser ended at 8:59 pm edt with 22Sco38 rising, and MC 3Vir56 as focal point of a YOD (‘Finger of God’ pattern = a special task; where the story picks up again; crisis) so with Mars in Aries and NN in AQ it gives…
Mars/NN = MC: excellent teamwork; partnership values important; integrating one’s individuality into the community.
And with US Secondary Progressed Moon conjunct that MC, we have…
Mars/NN = Sec Moon: emotional attitude toward others shows and leads activity; unions based on soul affinity.
(I see Sec Moon in a national chart as representing where ‘the people’ are in an evolutionary sense. You may disagree. And remember that the US Sibly chart had a Sec Full Moon in Dec 2008 – see sidebar column of Pages for chart and a few details.)
Reinhold Ebertin gives the Mars/NN combination as ‘people working together toward a common end or purpose; a social conscience.’
The presser began at 8:01 pm edt with a Fist of God pattern which also pointed to (8:01 pm’s) MC 18Leo51, the degree position of two disturbing influences: the August 11, 1999 Solar Eclipse that Nostradamus warned us about, and Venus’ position on the morning of 9.11.01. (Solar Eclipse chart in sidebar column of Pages.)
This is also the degree of Mr. Obama’s natal Descendant of Partnerships (his 7:24 pm chart) so natal ASC was at IC, the Foundation of the matter…what he was selling, I think, himself, so we may infer…
Mars/Pluto = natal ASC: showing the hero image; the fighter who dares the impossible.
Sounds like tonight’s presser, his first 100 days, and his entire presidency to me.
Plus, with the MC (‘the Goal’ of the chart) the pattern gives a picture with the base of the configuration (a square between Mars an Pluto), as:
Mars/Pluto = MC: self-confidence; unusual capabilities for life advancement; facing overwhelming danger without power; ambition; dealing with might on either side of any issue; major job maneuver.
As usual, midpoint pictures work in an ‘any, all, or none’ fashion but based on Pres. Obama’s performance so far, I’ll take the ‘dealing with might’ possibility, plus, the ‘major job maneuver’ if tonight’s presentation short circuits tiresome talking points designed to keep anything useful from getting done on behalf of the American people who most politicians seem to think aren’t worth the expenditure.
Good old America: my only nag in the race!
