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!

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.

Gingrich predicts who’ll run in 2012

Here’s ethics-challenged Newt Gingrich predicting which Republicans will run for president in 2012 and even Ron Paul is listed.

Gingrich’s own name isn’t excluded, of course, and for those of us who are Palin watchers, her name is near the top of the list, according to Newt the Prognosticator.

And now, without furr-ther ado, here’s a political cat limerick from the last campaign concerning Republican candidates…snarly.

Rrrraowwrrr!

Dump Palin from Discovery nature show!

A wildlife-loving friend sent me this and I thought you might be interested in crimping the style of the Alaska-drilling babe they call Sarah:

Discovery Communications announced a new Alaska nature show starring Sarah Palin — the same Sarah Palin who escalated Alaska’s war on wolves and offered a $150 bounty for the severed front-forelegs of dead wolves.

The same Sarah Palin who fought against increased protections for America’s struggling polar bear populations.

And the same Palin who fought against the increased protections for the dwindling Cook Inlet beluga whales.

I’m troubled that Discovery Communications — known for their wildlife-focused productions — would choose to embrace such an anti-wildlife person as Sarah Palin to represent Alaska and the wildlife that lives there.

I just wrote to Discovery Communications urging them to dump Palin, and I am hoping you will too. It’s easy, just take action at ActionDefenders.org and please pass this message on!

Where America now treads

Where American now treads? On you and me.

And if you’ve ever read my grousings online, here or @ Stars Over Washington, you may know that I consider America to be ‘my only nag in the race’ in spite of years of propaganda from our illusory ‘two-party system’ of government with its tiresome demonizing of the opposition at every turn…their win-at-any-costs political ideologies have helped sink us lower than kicked puppies under front porches – and are being perpetrated bwo their following of a long-planned NWO design.

Well, here’s an article that focuses on the financial crisis and then some, while it details more of what’s really issuing out of Washington than the average Democrat, Republican, tea partier, or militia woman cares to face or admit. To do so, one must put the ‘Ds vs Rs’ myth to rest where it belongs, and scoff at political shills like Sarah Palin as she attempts to whip up frantic support for a GOP sworn to undermine President Barack Obama (and America with him, if that’s what it takes. Besides, it’s NWO string-pullers who ultimately decide who will be US president, not Sarah Pallin worshipers, or other voters.)

Yet facing our demons so they can be identified and vanquished is all that will avail us during these difficult times. So if Washington politicians won’t take part in honest discussions about our problems (and from experience we know they won’t), then it’s up to us to uncover for ourselves and deal with the underbelly of greedy power-grabbing and deceit we’ve been scammed by through the decades.

Tea Party Convention Feb 4 – 6, 2010: Astrology

A dual wheel display of the horoscopes of the beginning and ending of the Feb 4 – 6, 2010 Tea Party Convention, Nashville, TN, is now published if you’d care for a peek.

One thing I neglected to add to the post which will fit nicely here: the Sun/Moon combination through the three days. Whenever there’s an event that plays out over more than one day, it can be informative to take note of the various combinations of Sun and Moon.

Beginning at sunrise on Feb 4, 2010, Moon is in the late degrees of Libra (27:41) with Sun 15AQ36. No, it’s not quite Sarah Palin’s birthday – that’s February 11 (1964.)

Just before midnight on Feb 6, Moon reaches 3Sag06 precisely conjunct transiting Hidalgo 3:06! (Click above link to read my notes on Hidalgo and the Moon.)

Therefore, we have 3 Sun/Moon blends to consider for a ‘general atmosphere’ or background picture of Tea Party Convention 2010 by listing their ‘Images for Integration’ which are *word pictures in shorthand of the combined energies:

Sun AQ/Moon Libra (Air-Air = clearheaded, civilized, witty, and elegant) has a highly idealistic side and a humanitarian slant. But even if easy-going, this blend can suddenly get rebellious if its rights or its sympathies are abused or taken advanmtage of.

‘Groups vs Individuality’ is a theme; ideals and theories are plentiful yet practicality may be lacking; social awareness is strong; ideas and systems are presented to promote a brighter outlook.

‘Images for Integration: Anarchists form a committee to end the tyranny of committees…Good friends fall in love and get married.’

The Sun AQ/Moon Lib blend is shared natally by author Boris Pasternak who so famously informed us that:

“As for men in power, they are so anxious to establish the myth of infallibility that they do their utmost to ignore truth.”

Well-said!

Sun AQ/Moon Scorpio (Air-Water = mist, ethereal and seemingly unsubstantial; very creative; thoughts and feelings can jumble together; a seemingly detached viewpoint may be tinged with personal bias; a tendency toward self-dramatization is possible.

Sun AQ/Moon Sco is a charismatic combo full of ambition, pride, and a strong will. A reformer who believes in self-reliance, this blend can be fiercely principled and dogmatic, and may have a hypnotic influence upon others; ruthlessness, manipulation, self-importance, and egotism may be prominent as well.

‘Images for Integration: A scientist dissects a scorpion with great tenderness and absolute precision…A researcher presents his findings to colleagues at a ‘Science for Humanity’ Conference (!)…Jules Verne’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.” ‘

Natally, Sun AQ/Moon Sco belongs to Henry Brook Adams who long ago helpfully informed us that:

“Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organisation of hatreds.”

Tea Party, y’all! Organise those biased hatreds! (I merely jest. Don’t.)

And now for the last of the 3 Sun/Moon blends…perhaps the atmosphere will clear a little?

Sun AQ/Moon Sag (Air-Fire = a ‘live wire’ – remind you of anyone on the speakers’ list? – a potential visionary that needs a more practical focus to succeed; mentally active, gregarious, loves new risks, but can turn moralistic and ‘preachy’ when on a ‘high horse’.)

The AQ/Sag blend indicates an adventurous and independent spirit with social concerns, an urge for expansion, verbosity, and a tactless confidence; this is a blend with natural leadership qualities, a teacher who is admired by timid folk everywhere; there’s a forthrightness here which attracts many admirers, and a genuine love for wide open spaces.

A caution with Sun AQ/Moon Sag is a tendency to rationalize and make sweeping generalizations; overdoing a preaching manner when advancing pet causes; impatience for life’s mundane details can cause an off-putting bluntness or edge to the personality, and this blend may be difficult emotionally to bring down to earth.

‘Images for Integration: “Alice in Wonderland”…Indiana Jones founds a new university in the heart of the jungle…A distinguished sociology professor throws a fancy-dress party for her best friends.”

This blend is shared natally by poet Robert Burns who penned:

“Liberty in every blow!
Let us do or die!”

And yet, I shall not leave you without the next Sun AQ/Moon Cap blend’s ‘Images for Integration’ because I thought you might be curious about the immediate ‘mood’ or influence in the hours just after the Tea Party Convention un-convenes:

‘A revolutionary is elected president…An alien civilization comes to Earth to rescue man from imminent destruction.’

‘President’? Not going there, here. Can’t. Because it’s daft, impractical, and wacky.

So politically speaking, when it comes to man’s ‘imminent destruction’ I hold ALL Washington politicians at fault or collusive at the very least, no matter the patriotic stripe they wear when promoting pet causes of the moment in order to advance an ideology, vault their careers into the stratosphere, line their pockets, and improve their social standing.

*(‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Charles and Suzi Harvey.)

Palin in Hong Kong

With former governor and former VP candidate speaking in Hong Kong on US defense spending, we and the larger world have yet another example of her scintillating orating ability and indepth understanding of military issues.

May the specter of Palin’s finger on The Button be a caution to every US voter tempted to think she should run in 2012 or any other year.
