May 29 2009’s Sun Gem-Moon Leo blend

Because news reports today are so heavy with North Korean nuclear threats, presidential announcements about cyber security – and a ‘cyber-czar’ in the offing (how I loathe that sort of title) – plus, other serious intimations, possibilities, and rumors, I had a peek at the Air/Fire Sun Gemini-Moon Leo blend of the day.

May 29’s ‘Image for Integration’ belies the seriousness of day, as perhaps you may agree…

‘A king holds court and surprises his audience by joining the mandolin player in a duet of song and story.’ (‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’, Chas & Suzi Harvey.)

Now it’s true that President Obama was born with Sun and Mercury in the royal sign of Leo (the king), but I doubt his cyber-security announcement this morning led him literally to break into song since singing isn’t one of his many talents.

But ‘story’ if used for ‘tall tales’ may be quite a different matter and doesn’t surprise this audience at all – especially when coming out of Washington.

Of course, Astrology describes the cycle of life, a process, so next up will be Sun Gem-Moon Virgo, an Earthy and more serious-minded, discriminating sign for the Moon…

Sun Gem-Moon Virgo:

‘A specialist in nervous diseases gives a lecture in aid of local charities…An art critic gives a brilliant master class…Gaugin’s ‘Arearea’.

Gaugin? Now we’re talkin’! said the life-long artist and reluctant astrologer who publishes her various artwork at:

MIA: the moral conscience of America

Now that the question of rape has entered the debate on releasing or not releasing more Abu Ghraib photos, perhaps it’s beyond time to ask as Paul Craig Roberts does here: Does America Have a Moral Conscience?

Personally, it’s beyond me how the ACLU or anyone else can think it’s a grand idea to enflame internet channels further with such images of shame (and the shame is on All Sides.)

Releasing more photos seems beyond daft to me, and it’s a waste of time (or a political diversionary tactic perhaps designed to harm a Democratic administration – or vice versa!) to debate it or to wring hands over why the president first said, Yes, now he says No.

Yes, the condition and the ideals of America have certainly devolved in many ways in recent decades, and you may find these brief quotes from Montesquieu, Mencken, and Jefferson worthy of your consideration.

“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…
