what's onnn the men yooo?
This morning at the White House George Bush had a very important breakfast meeting, so...what's on the menu, George?
George had: Baker-Hamilton Souffle, Scrambled Blair, Rummy Hotcakes smothered in Bump-on-a-Log-Cabin Syrup, and Maliki Miffed Muffins, all served with the White House's special blend coffee, Roasted Republican.
Katrina Antacids followed with a steamy FEMA chaser.
With so much going on in Washington this week, there are, as you might expect, many things to say about this sunrise chart which represents the day in the District.
Outside the chart, you see my usual poorly scribbled notations which are primarily the natal planets of Robert Gates. With his Sun/Neptune conjunction at the top o'the chart, Dr Gates seems to be correct in saying yesterday that the position he seeks in the Defense Department represents a large sacrifice for him careerwise (Neptune = sacrifice; loss.)
Sun/Neptune conjunct folk are on the sensitive side, as you know, and only express themselves with confidence sporadically. With Neptune rising just before his Sun, Gates has what some would call, Neptune oriental--a chameleon who can shape-shift as the job requires. Not so perfect in the truth department, we may think, yet his Sun is square Uranus--a driven truthseeker who is difficult to stop once he believes in what he's doing.
A complex character, this Gates fellow with his natal Eclipse Series, 18North...
high stress level; taxing of one's strength; events occur that require extra efforts with a possibility of physical concerns (Bernadette Brady, Predictive Astrology.)
The last Eclipse in this Series: Sept 1, 1997, the next in 2015.
So is Bob Gates the Jupiter sulpa'e of December 16 of which Bernadette Brady speaks in her Babylonian program and newsletter, Visual Astrology??
We'll consider more details on this prior to Dec 16, for the keyword for Jupiter sulpa'e is: blessing. And Jupiter, the military general, may just be Robert Gates although technically he is not a general--as Rumsfled...er, Rumsfeld...liked to remind us when it was convenient for him.
Jupiter is also the Professor, which can relate quite well to Robert Gates, so the date, Dec 16, will be significant concerning someone as Jupiter challenges the king who stands alone(Saturn)--yet it may not be evident until Jan-Feb, 2007.
And I've not completely given up on the idea that this Jupiterian king-challenger could be --gasp!--a politician who becomes a blessing to this nation by challenging the Bush administration's ever-weakening grasp on reality...well it could happen!
And maybe--double gasp!!--he could be a Republican since Jupiter traditionally signifies the Republican Party...will Goldwaterism and thus some common sense for the common good--be revived?
This Jupiter/Saturn stand-off coincides with John Townley's information on the early '07 Saturnian Scythe (Saturn as Handle), which I'm sure you've read about at his Astro-Cocktail.com, haven't you?
(You see warring Mars at the "Grand Army of the Republic campfire" degree, right?)
YOD, the Finger of God formation:
One pattern in today's "menu chart" that stands out like a sore president is the YOD formation, the Finger of God pattern which is here today over the White House with Moon in security-minded Cancer as the apex planet.
From Bil Tierney's book, Dynamics of Aspect Analysis, we find that Moon as YOD apex is too defensive, unadaptable, and vulnerable to deal with security needs in the here-and-now. There is a need for sensitive adjustment (YOD = "adjustment") yet there can still be ensnarement in disorganized, distorted impressions of the past that need to be objectively observed and clarified before feelings are free to move on.
Now we know that the Moon signifies the populace/the public in a national chart, but with this apex Moon sounding just like George Bush's stubborn Cancerian tendencies, and since this Moon is heading toward conjunction with Bush's natal Sun (then n Saturn), it's a duh moment to say the above paragraph sounds just like our learless feader...Saturn--the king who stands alone.
I go on to quote Mr Tierney: Instinctual responses to impressions from the environment can be out-of-tune (tin ear?)with normal expectations...he's highly reactive and does not easily decode the emotional messages being received from others.
Which has been a huge part of his personal deficiencies all along. Someone pass George some of those Antacids, will ya?
The base of the YOD is Jupiter who-may-be-Gates at the "2 men playing chess" degree, sextiling Chiron at "Medina degree"--the position of Neptune (the mystical Middle Eastern planet) when Mohammed entered Medina--the beginning of Islam. This Chiron could signify, of course (since astrology describes untold levels of existence at once) PM Maliki also needing adjustment with apex Moon.
And here are two Sun/Moon personality combos from Charles and Suzi Harvey's Sun Sign-Moon Sign--first for the day, second for Robert Gates...
12.6.06: Sun Sag/Moon Cancer:
Images for Integration> A homing pigeon...An international nanny...An evangelist offers a vision of personal salvation (for Bush?)...Jimi Hendrix's Woodstock rendition of The Star-Bangled Banner...William Blake's watercolour, Teach These Souls to Fly (Tate Gallery, London.)
This combo is shared natally by Blake who wrote:
And did those feet in ancient days
Walk upon England's pastures green?
Sounds like Blair's flying into to Washington is tres important as an attempt to save Bush's bacon, doesn't it? Their official meetings are tomorrow, Thursday...and they share the same slab of that bacon.
And here's the Sun Libra/Moon Leo for Bob Gates (Moon in Leo for the 24-hour period of his birthdate):
A performance of The Importance of Being Earnest (yeah, we saw that yesterday)...A political idealist is crowned leader by adoring fans (not another one--but I'm in an anybody-but-Bush mood, so I'll take a chance on this joker)...The managing director throws a birthday party.
Well, there you have it--all I can manage of these perps this morning...the day is flying with or without William Blake or Oscar Wilde, and I'm outta here, m'peops, with typos to be repaired later...
