SOTU Address 2010 horoscope and Sun AQ-Moon Cancer

Yes, an image of the horoscope-with-details of tonight’s State of the Union Address, President Obama’s first-ever, has been published at my other blog if you’re interested in viewing it.

I’ve set the chart for 9:00 pm est, Capitol Building, DC and if Mr. Obama begins speaking a little after 9:00 pm (and he probably will – TV considerations, you know, plus on-camera hand-shakings, applause, etc) the chart’s angular factors – and links to the US natal chart – make ‘9 pm’ my choice as a symbolic representation of the President’s progress report for our nation; plus, it marks the end of his first year in office.

If you’ve seen the 2010 SOTU chart, you know that America’s natal Neptune in Virgo (sign of Work – jobs jobs jobs, Health, Service, and Police/Military, etc) is rising in the chart and bringing up the President’s natal Mars in Virgo. That ‘rock star’ connection/illusion the American public (Neptune) has with Mr. Obama (Mars) makes seeing his motivations and actions in a realistic light quite difficult, for Neptune loves the veils, and idolizes glamorous reflections upon the silver screen.

The most positive facet of our shared Mars/Neptune contact would be on a higher, spiritual level, but I find politicians dependable in that department even less than they are dependable in the political realm. It would take a miracle, and yet miracles do happen. Occasionally.

Well, let’s sniff tonight’s atmosphere to detect a little perfumery of the moment by considering the Sun AQ/Moon Cancer blend of energies in effect this evening. AQ/Can is an Air-Water combo and you know what an ethereal ”mist can waft forth when the two elements synergize. A ‘magic trick out of sleeve’ this may not be, but the mists of Neptune may be all that’s left to offer with so many large forces aligned against us. (I’m thinking here of Pluto’s transit in opposition to America’s natal Cancer line-up which has been within orb for a while now – Venus, Jupiter, Sun, and later on, Mercury. Personally, America’s eventual Pluto Return is one transit I expect to miss and the propagandistic Mercury/Pluto opposition in the US natal chart will be in fine fettle as it’s triggered a few years earlier.)

The ‘Sun AQ/Moon Can’ blend has a vivid imagination, a compassionate social conscience, and is full of idealism. Popularity accompanies lofty emotions, and a democratic spirit is evident – probably sincerely on the public’s side and hopefully with a sincere tinge on the side of good-hearted, beneficent politicians everywhere.

Since most of the ones on Capitol Hill were there as the 2008 collapse formed – and were active in its progress all along – I have much more confidence in the American people meaning well in our dire situation that I can trust a politician who says, “Trust me” – always a telling indictment against anyone’s honesty if they have to say or imply it.

On the unconscious side, we see the AQ/Can blend’s tendency toward rationalizing irrational acts (staying in the Middle East as if to justify invading and occupying an entire region – beyond our breaking point? jc), unrecognized prejudices, getting absorbed in abstract causes (PNAC? Global domination? jc) which helps avoid dealing with a nagging conscience and the haunting emotions that come from shafting one’s fellow man. This sort of high-minded detachment serves to ignore, if not diffuse, the raw emotions of others which are ‘messy’ to confront.

With the Sun/Moon combo tonight, traditional values will inform everything while a visionary quality determines the future. Its friendly veneer describes the urbane Mr. Obama, and the Cancerian Moon (Luna exalted in Cancer, sign of Home, Domestic Scene, Real Estate, Business, the Public, Physical Body, Nurturing and Security Needs, and the Past) showing the deep well of emotional pain and practical concerns which we-the-people are dealing with now, with many of us losing the thread into the grasps of politicians and usury creditors who lurk on all sides.

Yes, these days Oil Can Harry reigns over Pearl Pureheart, but can President Mighty Mouse Obama save the day? Or at the least, talk as if he will? Jobs, jobs, jobs are the answer – but what to do with our naughty multi-national corporations who employ everywhere but here?

Perhaps the Sun AQ/Moon Cancer blend’s ‘Images for Integration’ will provide us with a clue as to what’s going on under the surface of the slick TV performance we’ll be enjoying from Washington tonight.

*’A social worker bypasses bureaucracy to save a mother and child…(sounds good so far with many people now in need of assistance -jc)…A childhood memory becomes the basis of a new world order.’

Arghhh! ‘NWO’ is NOT what I want to hear tonight! But I will be listening closely to the President’s words and code words. Won’t you?

“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…
