Politics, that organized system of hatreds

As both readers of this blog know, I’m trading Politics for family wedding this weekend and will return in a few days.

Mercury, planet of agreements, negotiations, and contracts, is Rx at a spot in the zodiac you’d think might help things work out better than the snit of miffdom that Bush and McCain helped cause yesterday. Of course, it does take two to tango, but they seem to have had an abundance of pressure with campaign politics being brought into the financial negotiations. But Mercury conj Spica and Arcturus may help things yet.

Yet if you subscribe to olden Astrology, you may be tempted to wonder if the Via Combusta is behind the matter – ye olde Burning Way. Of course, Spica and Arcturus are the only two bright spots from 15 Libra to 15 Scorpio (the Eagle Point), plus, Mercury may have to go Direct before anything is settled with finality.

Maybe this IS a good time to take a break from the madness, so I’ll leave the Washington-Wall Street shenanigans to my excellent fellow Astrology bloggers while I party on down and try to forget the ‘organized system of hatreds’ for a little while.

We’ll be enjoying a rehearsal dinner this evening so whether Obama debates himself or not tonight will have to wait a while for me – but I’m sure the outcome of McCain’s crankiness will stay in the news for daze and daze. 

Hope to ‘see’ you soon, and mucho thanks to all who send well wishes to the happy couple!

“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…
