New DNI Clapper announced 6-5-10

Wonder how long this DNI will last? Mr. Clapper seems to be a keeper and perfect for the job of overseeing all our spook agencies.

Since he’s been named during the titanic Jupiter-and-Uranus-to-Aries-Point transit, his tenure may be quite successful (if you think spying on regular Americans and their Aunt Granny Fannies can be described as ‘success.’) But hopefully, his global terrorist efforts will be something to admire since 00Ari00 (AP) puts his appointment out there on the World Stage for all to see.

Here’s a link to the video of President Obama announcing Clapper’s appointment this morning in case you missed it.

You know, if you use the natal horoscope for America with ‘9 Scorpio’ rising (I think of it as the Franklin chart), you get Mr. Obama’s natal Neptune conjunct US natal ASC – not the most stable link between BHO and the nation, of course, but perfect for issues of surveillance, fraud, loss, dissolution…and perhaps spirituality.

Currently in the President’s Secondary Progressions is a midpoint picture which has formed in recent years and points to his Sec Neptune (and to his natal Neptune since the planet of fraud and deception has ‘moved’ only about 1 degree in his Progressions) – ‘any, all, or none’ may apply, as usual, and the energy may be coming his way from others in his environment, be outgoing, or, both:

Saturn/NN = Neptune: fraud; lies; falshoods; having to pay a price for help which is more than you expected; deceit with friendship given.

(Midpoint picuture: Tyl; Munkasey.)

Friendships can be problematic when you play Politics in DC, agreed. Good thing President Obama got a dog to tell his troubles to.

“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…
