Tomorrow, 9:30 am, as Ben Bernanke straightens his tie for his first statement as head of the Federal Reserve Bank, the midpoint between the Sun and Midheaven (Sun/Mc = "the goal or objective") has Chiron at their midpoint, at 5AQ41, in 10th house of Career/Public Status/Aspirations.
"6AQ": "A masked figure performs ritualistic acts in a mystery play." (DR)
Keynote: The individual's involvement in long-established patterns of activity aiming at the release of collective power. The individual is seen to have assumed TRANSPERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY.
(This is also the Medina Degree--so-named because spiritual Neptune was upon it when Islam began.)
Or, if you prefer the almost passed, unconscious or shadowed degree of "5AQ" (= US natal SN--business and entanglements from the past; old issues; mastered talents):
"A council of ancestors is seen implementing the efforts of a young leader."
Keynote: The Root foundation of past performances which power and sustain whatever decision is made in a crisis by an individual. This degree suggests that in many situations RELIANCE UPON PRECEDENTS will enable the aspirant to greatness to tap the power of his deepest roots.
And while he's tappin' those roots, Venus, associated with money and with values, is sitting niftily upon the Uranus/Neptune conjunction degree of the NWO Chart...
Ura/Neptune = Venus: peculiar relationships; an extremely high sensitivity; fantasy life.
Uran/Nep>"18Cap": "The Union Jack flag flies from a British warship."
Keynote: The protection afforded to individuals and groups by powerful institutions in charge of maintaining order.
This degree brings us the realization of the ambivalence of POLITICAL POWER, its values, and its dangers. The need for protection may be in evidence--or it may be a warning against using power for selfish advantage.
When used negatively this degree is "smug or strong-armed paternalism."
Well, it'd be great to believe the horse isn't outta the barn on THAT one, but sadly, I don't think so (see my NWO post.)
And in 4th house--the base or foundation of the chart for this Congressional and Senatorial day...is Rx Saturn 6 Leo 23..still within orb of Bush's natal Ascendant.
Well, George did the nominating, but of course he was just following orders.
Have you heard that Dick Cheney is a real wheeler-dealer on Wall St? At 9:30 am tomorrow, Mars 28Tau51 is in 1st house, and will rise as chart-ruler, applying to a square with Pluto, then a trine with the Moon. Mars has Cheney's natal Mc in tow, y'might say. So after some blockage--Mars square Pluto...it's onto a lovely trine with the Moon. So I would expect the publicity to be helpful to Mr Bernanke's chairmanship, at least for now.
Yep, Bernanke's sure to be affable and obliging, and he certainly shares objectives in this 'mystery play', for secret arrangements have been made before they begin.
Yet there's a "ruthless" influence to the day, as well as vocational success for someone--Bernanke well fits this description. Actually there's deception afoot, too, and the "mystery play" sounds like a veiling tactic or perhaps just the usual and secretive who's-really-in-charge pile o'merde by a secret society or two that pull the strings...
...and so some are marionettes, and some are behind the curtain.
And for Ben Bernanke, Feb 15th is Showtime.
