Bush Sr in hospital w today’s Sun conjunct natal IC

Former President George H. W. Bush is in hospital for what is said to be a lingering cough and possibly bronchitis. Can pneumonia be a factor?

At the age of 88 (born *June 12, 1924 11:45 am EDT Milton, MA), pneumonia is always a possibility. While peeking at today’s transits to his natal horoscope, I see his natal IC (4th house cusp, End of Life) @7Sag39 is ruled by Jupiter and today’s Sun position conjoins the IC (7Sag51 as I type) which spotlights it.

Transiting Jupiter @11Gem46 is Rx until January 30, 2013 and now traverses his n 10th H of Public Status while opposing natal Jupiter 14Sag11 in n 4th H. Jupiter oppo natal Jupiter is a time when no one is impressed with you though I’m saddened to say that Mr. Bush’s eventual passing will be certain to make global headlines. Tr Sun also will oppose natal Jupiter is a few days

Lined up today in his natal 3rd house and soon to cross his n IC are planets Mercury 18Sco48, Venus 9Sco26, and most descriptively of endings, Saturn 6Sco28, our Time Keeper and Grim Reaper. Plus, tr Pluto, planet of Death and Transformation, has been transiting Bush Sr’s n 4th H for some time. The current conjunction of irritating Mars to Pluto has been little or no help to his health, I fret, and may indicate heart involvement and/or infection.

Bush’s natal 9th H Mercury @29Tau24 (a critical-crisis degree)–his n chart-ruler (ASC @ 11Vir09)–will soon be opposed by tr Mercury in Scorpio, sign of surgery, regeneration, and death. And the November 13, 2012 Solar Eclipse @21Sco56 occurred in his n 3rd H, a house with links to Health Matters through the mind-body connection.

Saturn: Planet of Old Age

His most recent Saturn Return to natal sign and degree (25Lib50 Rx in n 2nd H) was a three-fer: Dec 2, 2011; Apr 20, 2012; Aug 27, 2012. As you know, Saturn rules the skeletal system of bones and teeth and skin (boundaries.) Saturn rules his 6th hous of Health bwo Aquarius on the cusp; plus, 6th H co-ruler Uranus, today @4Ari42–is about to enter his natal 8th H of you-know-what so his demise may be quite sudden when it comes with his 8th cusp @5Ari03, showing that tr Uranus has been crossing and recrossing the 8th cusp for some time now.

A major weakening effect is tr Neptune @00Pis27 which conjoined his 6th H Mars 25AQ28 some time ago. If you’re going to have Neptune affecting your 6th H of Health, it’s much better if you’re younger rather than older when it happens–and of course, tr Chiron (the Wound and the Wounded Healer) has been travelling in tandem with undermining Neptune and also affecting Mr. Bush’s health (Parkinson’s.)

A Neptune-to-Mars transit indicates a lessening of energy and vitality, a potential for infections, and confusion–more serious during advanced age, of course.

How Mr. Bush’s current hospital stay will turn out I do not care to guess but he does have some difficult planetary influences acting upon his natal planets right now and over the coming months.

  1. Its such as you learn my mind! You appear to grasp a lot approximately this, like you wrote the guide in it or something. I think that you just can do with some % to power the message house a little bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
