Astrology of Sotomayor vote: Moon conjoins Jupiter! 8.6.09

Update 3:21 pm edt; C-SPAN reports: Judge Sonia Sotomayor has just been approved…3:21 pm…vote was 68 to 31.

Original post begins here:

The SCOTUS vote on Sonia Sotomayor is scheduled for 3:00 pm edt this afternoon which is what I discovered after I checked an Astrology chart to see what planets or luminaries might be conjoining on her behalf.

Of course with Jupiter signifying the Republican Party in Mundane Astrology, Jupiter’s Rx condition may indicate the GOP’s inability to stop her nomination from going through, and the fact that few Rs will be voting for her.

Here’s what I found: Moon (a woman) conjoins (conjuncts) Jupiter (the Judge) at 3:46 pm edt in Washington, DC yet Jupiter 23AQ06 is Retrograde, and as chart-ruler, may indicate a problem to be overcome or some delay…still.

Also the pile-up of transiting power-related midpoints is in effect and ongoing upon US natal Pluto 27Cap33 Rx…Moon/Pluto joins them today in time for the SCOTUS vote:

Moon/Pluto, Jupiter/Pluto, Pluto/Chiron, and the Robber Barons’ signature, Neptune/Pluto which is now at 28Cap11.

So I don’t know what this tells you, but it tells me that Judge Sotomayor was a shoo-in (‘shoe-in’?) for Supreme Court Justice having all the right backing of the fat cats and big guys, including the powers-behind-the-throne (Pluto/Chiron.)

“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 are 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…
