Tonight’s Cocktails w John Boehner and the Moon of Sarah Palin

If you’re of the RNC, perhaps your invitation for tonight’s cocktails with John Boehner has been received. If so, you’re expected in the GOP’s Maryland retreat at 7:00 pm est with Sun in Capricorn and an Aries Moon.

The shrewd combination of Sun in Capricorn and Moon in Aries is self-interested, intensely ambitious, and powerful and presents us with interesting ‘Images for Integration’ which you may wish to consider especially in relation to the current controversy over violent political rhetoric and the tragedy in Tucson on January 8, 2011.

“A Roman city-state is attacked by barbarians but its solid walls keep the marauding bandits at bay…An impetuous entrepreneur persuades a conservative banker to back an ambitious project.”

(Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Now I won’t bore you with references to previous posts by myself and many others which relate the American Empire with the fallen Roman Empire for you already know all about it. And let’s avoid talk of the ‘Nazi room’ located in the Skull and Bones building at Yale, or the win-at-any-cost neocon desire to rule the world, okay?

But I will mention that the horoscope for January 12, 2011 at 7:00 pm est shows 00Tau53 at Midheaven, the Goal and WHY? Point of any chart. This shows the reason for tonight’s gathering of the GOP as invited by House Speaker John Boehner with 00/1Taurus being a degree of violence (aka, ‘Hitler’s trigger point’, his natal Sun position.)

So it seems to me that discussion of the Tucson tragedy fall-out and how to manage it (with 2012 firmly in their sights) is on the GOP agenda this evening along with other issues, or I miss my guess. The Moon 28Ari11 is at Midheaven as well which puts the public mood and publicity firmly in the WHY? category – and the Mars-ruled Aries Moon = a woman, Sarah Palin!

Thought Police in Minneapolis, RNC taking no chances

Rounding up people for contemplating a political protest, raiding US citizens with semi-automatic rifles because they dissent from government policies – no, not some convention far far away, but here, in Minneapolis, where the Republican Party apparently feels threatened by a few sign-carriers – and what those signs would say 


‘First they come for your neighbors’ so police your own thoughts so they won’t have to be policed by Bush-Cheney-McCain!

This may be a job for…Guy Noir.

Greek god Apollo: McCain or Obama?

Since I had noticed in chart studies this week that asteroid Apollo was active due to ‘his’ nearness to Sun and transit Saturn (columns, architecture), I was interested in HuffPost blogger Bob Cesca’s photos of Republican photographs with columns as backdrops suggesting Greek gods from on high…


You’ve probably heard by now of the RNC’s ‘DNC Rapid Response Headquarters’ set up about one mile from the Pepsi Center in Denver, and their website which I don’t care about passing on to America.

Well, when the R strategists got a gander at the stadium where Barack Obama will accept the Dem nom Thursday night and the fact that it was staged with Greek COLUMNS, they naturally assumed the Ds meant to reference Greece and Greek gods as being Obama-like (the other way round, but you know what I mean.)

Well, America did, for the most part, swipe their democracy concept, but it’s the ‘god’ part the Rs are hoping to emphasize, not classical political thought orits continuance under a Democratic White House. Must be part of their ‘style no substance/he’s not ready/celebrity status only’ ploy against Senator Obama.

If you follow the link to Cesca’s photo collection, you’ll soon see that Republicans fancy themselves as Greek gods, too, with as much right to pose in front of Greek columns as any popular Dem candidate ever claimed.

Now astrologically, Sun-linked Apollo has been traveling in tandem these last few days with Saturn, significator of the D-Party, and highlighted by the Virgo Sun. Anciently, Apollo was one of the pantheon of sun gods, the major one for the Greeks, and now serves as an indicator of the hero’s journey in a chart.

There’s an interesting mix here with natal planets being triggered by orbiting Apollo this week conjoined with John McCain’s Sun 6Vir02 (his Solar Return is Aug 29, Katrina Day, with Mercury Return Aug 30) and Barack Obama’s natal Pluto 6Vir59 – sorry, McBush, but Pluto’s power and coping ability trump Sun’s ego.

So if either of you fits the Apollo archetype in this modern day and age, it’s Barack Obama, now nominated by acclamation as Democratic candidate for President of the United States.

Guess you’ll want to find another emblem to use in your own staged presentation…maybe some body bag photo-ops would be more suitable for a hawkish neocon such as yourself.

And all this may be described, along with much else, as being part of the soon-to-come Saturn (past) opposition to Uranus (future.) For as honorable and stalwart as McCain’s Vietnam service was (and is), His hero’s journey was Then, and THIS, is Now.

“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…
