Romney like Reagan: an armer of rebels?

Styling himself as Reaganesque, candidate Mitt Romney is spouting off about wanting to arm Syrian rebels ‘who share our values’ which reminds me of the hot water President Ronald Reagan got himself into for arming Iranian rebels (arms-for-hostages, aka, Irangate) and then repeatedly lying about it from TV screens across America.

Both Romney and Reagan were born with Jupiter (how we relate to others) in Scorpio, a money sign of Big Business, Secrets, and Betrayals, and we know that having expansive Jupiter in the Mars-Pluto-ruled sign makes for a materialistic viewpoint, over-optimism, and a ruthless striving for possessions.

Plus, Jupiter in Scorpio craves pleasure and tends to overrate its abilities but hopefully if Mitt is placed into the Oval Office, he won’t follow Reagan’s example when it comes to shady arms-dealing.

And in case you’re curious about the two personalities debating one another on October 11, 2012 (VP Joseph Biden and Rep. Paul Ryan) you may wish to check out a few astro-notes I posted today using their natal Sun-Moon blends!

Paul and Janna Ryan: Wedding Day Astrology

Republican Rep. Paul Ryan proposed marriage to tax attorney Janna Little in April 2000 and they were wed in Oklahoma City, OK on December 2, 2000 with approximately 400 guests attending. (Click link for more details.)

Now if the Ryans’ wedding ceremony took place at or after 9:23 pm CST, the Moon (feminine principle) had entered Pisces. If before, the Moon was in Aquarius; in both cases, the Sun (male principle) was in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius in the 10Sag21 to 11Sag22 degree range. (Dec 2, 2000 12 am CST to 11:59 pm CST.)

(Astro-Note: as a pair, the luminaries–Sun and Moon–indicate Marriage.)

And as you know, idealistic Jupiter’s natural abode is the 9th house of Philosophy, Religion, and Higher Education. Plus, the Sun (husband) conjoined Pluto on that day (Pluto @12Sag39 noon CST) and neared Chiron 19Sag09. Synchronistically, the Wedding Moon at noon (@25AQ20) conjoined and reflected asteroid Juno, the wife and met Cupido 00Pis25 (family; cupidity or love) soon after Luna entered Pisces.

So which Sun-Moon blend of this the happy couple to detail? First, some basic elements to consider:

Sun Sag-Moon AQ is a ‘live wire’ Fire-Air combo of bluster and bombast and denotes those who tend to become ‘carried away’ with their own ‘eloquent’ rhetoric. Zeal for innovative ideas is notable which are then persuasively expressed to others. This is a visionary combo which must guard against impracticality; in evidence may be a tendency to be out-of-touch with the emotional realm of feelings.

Sun Sag-Moon Pisc is a Fire-Water blend which may be described as a “bulldozer” for its tendency to push ahead in the preferred direction, no matter what. This combo denotes a more practical visionary with feet kept firmly on the ground but with an instinct for the ‘main chance’. There’s a love of the good life and a talent for pulling rabbits out of hats.

Hmmm…guess we’d better look at both Sun-Moon sign combinations!

Sun Sag-Moon AQ (Janna does look to me to have ‘Aquarian blue eyes’!): intellectual and friendly, this visionary blend denotes high ideals, a breezy outspokenness, and a seeker of truth (uh-oh! guess you can always seek it so you can hide it!) All types of viewpoints are accomodated with an easy-going adaptability, and its positive outlook is willing to take risks whenever necessary; a keen social awareness may be noted which identifies with the World View, or which seeks to justify its personal eccentricities.

With this blend, life’s mundane realities present challenges, and a high-minded crusading zeal shows insensitivity to more sentimental souls. There’s a tendency to over-generalize while living in the realm of abstract ideas, and in relationships, Sun Sag-Moon AQ isn’t automatically adept at intimacy. An intelligent, strong-egoed partner is a must to keep things interesting; plus, loyalty is much prized as long as independence is part of the marriage.

Is this a passionate and romantic combination? Yes, but even so there’s usually a brotherly-sisterly quality within the partnership.

Sun Sag-Moon Pisc describes more of an emotional, imaginative blend with deep convictions, generosity, and a moralistic streak. This is The Philosopher yet the logic is irrational, the dreams fantastical. An enormous sensitivity to the human condition is prominent (and not generally found within the objectivist hearts of Ayn-Randers) along with a trusting openness–the need to give to others is an endearing quality of this combo.

Lavish expenditures may occur for this blend contains a ‘wastrel’ sub-personality! Giving the ‘shirt off one’s back’ is described here and for that reason and others (and because odds are that the Ryan nuptials took place prior to 9:23 pm), I ‘vote’ for the Sun Sag-Moon AQ blend to more closely describe the relationship and the individual partners in the Paul and Janna Ryan union.

What do you think? If you wish to ‘vote’ for a blend or remark, please leave a comment with this post!

Paul Ryan collected SS benefits until age 18

Oh Ye of Massive Hypocrisy!

Speaking of gooses, ganders, and sauce, perhaps you’ve heard the news that entitlement-hating Paul Ryan collected Social Security benefits until age 18 due to his father’s death and saved them so he could pay for college.

Admirable!

And that seems perfectly fine to me except that now he’s using his education and slavish Ayn-Randiness in an attempt to toss seniors, the disabled, and ill Americans into the streets to fund future tax breaks for the rich class he now works for!

This reminds me of Reagan’s attitude toward the poor and ill yet it was FDR’s New Deal that gave Reagan’s father a job when the family needed help the most.

Well, FDR’s SS program works really well, doesn’t it? (And has nothing to do with the US deficit or debt load.)

So I guess Ryan’s Path to Prosperity can’t be taken but by the very few…just don’t ask too many questions about how they took their first steps because you might find FDR leading the way.

Paul Ryan and why he matters

UPDATE August 11, 2012: a new entry may be found concerning Mitt Romney’s choice of Paul Ryan today as his VP running mate with Astrology details included. Also, a second new post asks if Paul Ryan’s rise to higher visibility and ‘royal’ status within the ruling elite links him to the current Perseid Meteor Shower and to the warrior archetype of Perseus the Prince!

(Perseid link, above, includes a NASA video showing this year’s Moon, Venus, and Jupiter positions in the night sky–it’s cosmic loveliness!)

Original post begins here:

After posting some astro-details concerning Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, deliverer of the Republican rebuttal to President Obama’s SOTU 2011 Address of last evening, I discovered that Who Runs Gov? has a bio on the congressman and Why He Matters.

Mr. Ryan was born Jan 29, 1970 in Janesville, Wisconsin, and if you wish to read a little about Paul Ryan’s natal chart, click here. My post includes a video of Ryan’s rebuttal, a link to NPR’s SOTU 2011 transcript/audio, and an excerpt of and link to Katrina vanden Heuvel’s revealing Washington Post article on Paul Ryan, a former Tom Delay-Dennis Hastert associate.

Which means that the mafia-esque, convicted Jack Abramoff could be lurking in the picture somewhere!

A “lost” Lincoln photo found?

Debates of 1858 are long over yet now there may have turned up a photograph of candidate Abraham Lincoln and other notables in Ottawa, Canada.

Interesting!

Should Sarah Palin drink more?

Actually, I have no idea if the former half-term governor drinks at all. I don’t. Even so, I’m feeling a bit manipulated by the alcoholic beverage industry after reading that a new study shows that drinking makes you smarter.

So I apologize for this post’s title. But given the new study’s conclusion, I was just thinking that if Sarah Palin ever wants to run for public office again, she may want to start her binges NOW.

Will his past haunt Barack Obama?

Some interesting info and inferences have surfaced regarding President Obama’s past dealings and those of his family members, especially his father – and the CIA.

This info is a little too involved to wrap my allergy-stuffed noggin around today, plus, I’m busy writing a certain America-infused article inspired by the excellent Julie Demboski, yet the article link is being passed on to you for delving purposes, if you wish.

Plus, posting its link here makes it easier for me to find later on.

This is almost off-topic but in case you didn’t notice, my sidebar list of Wedding Day Astrology Pages now includes the wedding of President Obama’s parents, if you’re interested.

Update 8.19.10: here’s more stuff from Wayne Madsen on possible Obama family’s CIA employment though it isn’t clear to me why, if true, any of this is a mark against Mr. Obama as president – other than that the marketing of him for president didn’t include his family’s connections to the CIA.

Is not revealing all the facts, in fact, lying?

This makes Mr. Obama’s book Dreams of My Father seem like a ploy to hide deeper truths about the future president. Perhaps ‘Dreams of My Father’s CIA Connections’ would have been closer to it.
