Ode to Columbus Day

You May Cross the Great Water

Columbus Day has rolled around

we celebrate the man

though not quite sure he found the place

we’ll party as we can

America America it doesn’t matter now

who ‘ere was first to find our shore is history and how.

(Americus Vespucci may deserve credit too, y’know, and we shouldn’t forget the Vikings)

skipping ahead: the 2009 Inauguration

Sheesh! It took quite a while to write my post on the 2009 Inauguration (Jan 20, 2009, noon est, DC) so tonight I’ll simply point you to:


where you’ll find an image of the horoscope plus my notes which include info on midpoint pictures, an unaspected Pluto,  the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series in which the Inauguration (and the November election 2008) fall, and more.

This Solar Eclipse is conjunct the R-Party’s and George Bush’s natal Mercury (9 Leo+)–oh! and the natal Mercury of Al Gonzales.

So with Jupiter signifying the Republican Party and Saturn the Democratic Party, guess which planet is nearer the Midheaven in the Inaugural chart?

As usual I didn’t get all the chart factors mentioned in the post but will be referring to this chart in future blog entries as the months and the presidential campaign proceed. It’ll be upon us before we know it, so check it out if you get a chance.

“There are two lasting bequests we can give our children: One is roots, the other is wings.” Teaching children values and giving them the opportunity to excel is essential to good parenting. However, I feel I must also provide my children (and myself) insight into the ones who came before us: our ancestors whose lives and stories have shaped us into who we are. This is my journey; these are their stories…
