The Mitt-ster on Election Day

I hate to say it but Mitt Romney doesn't have a hideous looking chart on Election Day.  He has Mercury (the communicator) conjuncting his South Node in the 7th house - the house of intimate relationships with people so he could be doing some good reaching out that day. Not a bad thing for a politician on election day.

He does have an interception in the 6th and 12th houses. An interception is when there are two signs on one house cusp and means that there is some karmic balancing that is in need of going on. The signs involved here are Libra and Aries - and now this is the part that cracks me up. Basically what this means is the person  failed to learn the lessons of brotherhood and true sharing in past lives. They failed to be of service, failed to recognize the needs of others. I kid you not! I don't mess with the stars.

So it seems like the thing that will get Mitt is his snooty- corporations are people and I don't need to give you tax returns - attitude.

This election kind of reminds me of 2000 when both Bush and Gore had pretty decent charts on election day but Bush had better karma. Now looks like karma is on the side of the donkey.

Aurora: I am not looking for answers in the Stars, I am looking at the Left. Yes, that is correct - the Left

Saying Goodbye
courtesy of
I am in no mood to look at the planet alignment over Aurora, Colorado to try to find the malefics in place that would explain yet another shooting. Oh, I am sure they are there and I am also sure that if we found out the birth date of the shooter and the victims we would find some links..... Frankly, I am tired of looking for connections for shootings. I am sick and tired of it all.

I am also tired of my fellow progressives who  might be inclined to light some candles, sing some songs and move on. There is nothing wrong with either candles or songs. I am a huge fan of both. What I am not enamored with is a weak Progressive movement that refuses to stand up to the gun lobby.

Yes, I know it is easier for corporations and the NRA to control members of the political right because if you tend to go right you ascribe to the more paternalistic, authoritarian structure and find it easier to follow rules set down from "on high." Yes, I also know that those on the right are more prone to follow a dogmatic religion and tend to believe things no matter how far-fetched if they appear authoritarian. They will follow rules, stick together, not question and buy information without demanding a lot of evidence. I do have a degree in Political Science - I get that.

Now it is time for the Left to say we don't care that the NRA and gun lobby can shout "Communism", "Socialism" - words many of their undereducated followers haven't a clue about their true definition. I don't care that they can make placards saying, "Protect the Second Amendment" and know that thousands will rally around them even without a bit of historical knowledge about how it and why it was written.

Now it is time for the Left to come together, put down their candles and their lattes and say, dammit we want it to be illegal for a person to get 6000 rounds of ammunition off of the Internet. It is time for the Left to demand the reinstatement for the assault weapons ban. It is time for the Left to say if you call yourself a patriot then you should care that police officers are not sitting ducks out there.

We must cover the backs of our politicians by saying if you don't support gun laws you won't have our vote the same way the right says the opposite. We must call offices and write letters and make this an issue in this an every other election.

Lighting candles after another tragedy doesn't do it anymore. We need to be proactive, demanding and mad as hell - and stay that way after the faces of the victims fade from the television screen.

Presidential Election - President Obama - part 2

Last week I spoke about the "girls" Venus and Lilith  in the President's 7th house and the strong influence women will play in this election.

Today we will look at the one of the boys - the strongest boy really Mars and his placement in the President's tenth house conjunct Juno. Mars, the epitome of male unbridled energy, in the 10th house - the house of career and politics, is not a bad placement for election day. Coupled with Juno, the goddess of loyalty it makes my liberal little heart happy.

What makes me a bit nervous is that this Mars Juno conjuction is running in opposition to the Venus Lilith. Oppositions are difficult energies but they are not "bad" in themselves because we can over come these obstacles and reach great heights.  To me this is a classic male/female battle with men going one way and women the other.

However, if the two stop fighting against one another they can deliver a great victory for the President. I think at the last minute the men will get on board and do just that.

I do believe the President will win and win a bit bigger than predicted. There is one more thing to look in the next blog entry and that is the interception of the 2 and 8th houses - money and power.

Election Day 2012 - continued "The Girls Rule"

As I mentioned last week, with Mercury going retrograde on Election Day - there can be any number of tricks going on - voting machines breaking down, funny "contracts" being made, deceptions galore. Remember the last time and only other time Mercury turned retro on Election Day - 2000? Need I say more?

That said there are several good things in President Obama's chart on that day. On this triwheel of his birth chart, progressed chart and then transit chart of the day, I am first drawn to progressed Venus conjuncting his Black Moon Lilith in the 7th house - the house of close contacts. Venus, of course, is the ultimate woman, Lilith is the ultimate "bad girl." She is the rebel who said I do it my way not his way. Those two combined in the fiery sign of Leo leads me to think alot of peeved women are going to come together and give the President a boost on that day!

However, this is squaring a very strong Mars in the 10th - the house of career and public.  Now Mars (conjunct Juno) in the 10th is a good placement for the President - but when it squares his progressed Venus it makes me think that there will be a male -female battle that the women are going to have to win.

More on Mars next time.
