Hello from Vermont - up here for Thanksgiving with some family and friends. We are spending the week cooking at an inn here. Should be very "New Englandy". Of course, I had to take a minute to look up the chart of Vermont. You know I love Maine because as a Scorpio Sun/Pisces Moon I need the water but the politics of Vermont is much closer to my heart than lovely Maine!
Made a state on March 4, 1791 Vermont is by Sun Sign a Pisces. Figures - it is full of touchy feely people dedicated to live and let live and go connect with the Universe in the Green Mountains. What is really interesting is the stellium (more than 5 planets) in the 9th house. Remember, the 9th vibrates to Sagittarius - the archer seeking truth - his personal truth. Vermont has Venus, Pallas Athena, Mars the Sun and Moon all there in Pisces. Can you see the desire to balance male and female - Venus and Mars with the androgynous queen Pallas in between them? There is also the union of male Sun energy and female Moon energy. Vermont, the only state to have Socialist Member of Congress is one of our most progressive, most forward thinking States. It was the first to pass a host of anti discrimination laws and is the leader of environmental legislation.
In the 10th house, the house of our social status - how we are perceived by the world. On the cusp of Vermont's tenth is Taurus. Ruled by Venus, Taurus is the Bull who sits calmly in the beautiful pasture. Well guess what the nickname is for Vermont? Right - the Green Mountain State. I love this stuff! Vesta, the burning hearts desire, Ceres, the symbol of Mother Earth and Saturn, the planet that gives form and structure, are all in Aries, the leader, in the 10th. They take their preservation of Vermont's beauty very seriously here.
The influence of the Universe is all around us. To be able to connect to it - in every setting at every season is a wonderful gift. It is one I will be thankful for this Thanksgiving among other things.
Have a wonderful holiday.
