Kucinich to force Afghan w/drawal vote
As you’ve heard, The Hill is reporting that Rep Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) plans an attempt to force a vote to remove US troops from Afghanistan now that President Obama has drifted from his July 2011 intention.
Dennis John Kucinich was born in Cleveland, Ohio on October 8, 1946 at 5:53 pm est, the eldest of seven children in a Roman Catholic family, his father of Croatian ancestry. If I remember correctly, Mr. Kucinich has shared his correct birth time for the benefit of astrological study.
The excellent Daykeeper Journal shows Mr. Kucinich’s natal chart
here, if you wish a view – you’ll see his realistic and dedicated Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Leo (6-degree orb) along with 14Aries56 rising. With Mars as chart-ruler, some of the following factors may be mitigated by the activist planet of determination.
Let’s take a brief look at his misty, ethereal Air-Water combination of Sun Libra-Moon Pisces: adaptable and sensitive, this blend of energies provides a perceptive intellect, sociability, and idealism. A genteel diplomacy makes for one of the nicest people around but with a detective’s mind and an air of mystery about him.
Here is a natural worker on the behalf of other people who can both fit in with the larger plans of others and/or initiate plans of his own. This charming guy is endearing to others due to his compassion, sense of fairness, listening ability, and non-judgmental attitude.
Relationships are central to this combination, which is supported by his natal Sun in Libra conjunct natal Descendant (Partnerships) – he may, perhaps, ‘give too much away’ of himself in relationships; plus, Venus in sexy Scorpio is out-of-bounds in his horoscope suggesting a deep insecurity concerning relationships, love, or romance (he’s in his 3rd marriage now.)
Two cautions for the Libra-Pisces blend are a tendency to vacillate at crucial crossroads, and to identify with too many points of view which leads to confusion or to a lack of conviction.

Sounds rather lovely and childlike so I want to add three midpoint pictures which may give us a fuller idea of Rep. Kucinich, for US natal Neptune 22Vir25 is apex planet in three of his natal midpoints…yet we remember that Astrology is an AC-DC affair which describes energies flowing in either or both directions, at once or alternately. These pictures are more personalized for Rep. Kucinich because he serves (Virgo) the masses (Neptune) within the US government…
n Mercury/Pluto = US Neptune: pursuit of peculiar plans; cunning; falsehood; slander, libel, and defamation; overdoing issues drains energy and wears out one’s welcome; mystical insights; using deception and concealing information; an inefficient researcher.
n Mars/Saturn = US Neptune: pretenses or cover-ups about the state of preparedness of self or others; inefficient use of energy; a weakening of well-prepared plans; confusion; feeling threatened; self-torment; insufficient power to tackle obstacles; a grievous loss.
n Jupiter/Pluto = US Neptune: suffering damage or loss through others without being aware of it; cheating, deceiving, or seducing others; a general disappointment; unclear goals in life; being drawn to mystical religions and abstract ideas; adjusting the data; omitting key facts; working a situation into one’s own format (politics! and of course, congressmen work with surveillance issues and secret data all the time – jc.)
Also, Kucinich’s natal Jupiter 2Sco46 is focal planet with his Venus/Neptune midpoint – the Venus/Neptune pair relates to the Vatican, and ‘3Sco’ = “A House Raising.”
As in, House of Representatives? (Imho, 99% of the borry sastards could use some raising – of ethics and integrity.)
n Venus/Neptune = n Jupiter: luxury consciousness; love of comfort; keeping up a good front; a rich imagination; a tendency to revel in illusion; artistic receptivity; religious deceptions as a form of holiness; excessive use of deceptive practices in financial endeavors.
Now you know that any, all, or none of the above factors may apply and that natal midpoints are subject to stimulation by transits and progressions. The above midpoint pictures are a mix of info gleaned from Noel Tyl, Reinhold Ebertin, and Michael Munkasey.
