Looking at sunrise this morning on Capitol Hill and at 9:30 am, it looks like as an interesting day as Kyle Sampson, former chief of staff to Alberto Gonzales, testifies on the prosecutor purge.
It's a fiery day with Sun 8Aries+ and Moon 21Leo+, Moon to 22Leo+ by 9:30 am.
This Sun-Moon blend has a few weaknesses such as a tendency to insist on childishly seeing things its own way, and going for the biggest and best before tidying up the debris from past projects. There's a leaning toward letting ego needs for affirmation and applause blind any true self perception.
The debris of this situation won't be tidied up in one day...not to mention the other issues under consideration on the Hill today.
Here's the Image for Sun Aries-Moon Leo:
After slaying the black dragon of sloth and greed, the young warrior is knighted by the one true king, marries the maiden of purity, and they live happily ever after.
(I'll save my snarky remarks and suppositions for your imagination...besides, you may have the same opinion of these Washington players as I do.)
Today tr Uranus is closing the conjunction with tr North Node, Uran/NN = reformist political associations (Ebertin) and at sunrise we see these pictures as the Ura/NN conj meets these tr midpoints:
Sun/Mars = Uranus: premature action; changes of vocation; militarism; impulsive behavior; doing one's work in a state of excitement; forceful adjustment to new circumstances; sudden events. With NN: confederation and association in fighting for the same objectives.
Mars/Asc = Uranus: testiness; picking a fight; argumentation; intimidation; self-aggrandizement. With NN: excellent teamwork; the guidance of others.
9:30 am, the Sun/Mars pictures remain, add:
Saturn/Uranus = Asc: being placed in difficult circumstances; standing alone in the world; the loner's position is established; suffering difficulties caused by others; indecision; mourning.
Saturn/NN = Asc: appearing alone; pulling back; going away.
Moon/Mercury = Asc: sharing one's opinions.
Sun/Mc ("the goal") = Neptune: pursuit of the wrong objectives; apathy and indifference; the wrong attitude to life; confusion or lack of clarity; disappointments; insecurity.
Asc/Mc = Neptune: feeling ill at ease; the necessity to hide one's true nature by feigning, simulating or pretending (well, they are in Washington!);
Pluto/Asc = Uranus: unusual events fan flames further; success at all costs (Machiavelli just wiggled in his grave--I think Karl Rove poked him with a stick); anxiety.
Pluto/Asc = NN: identification of the ego with the larger group; sharing the same destiny with other people; tendency to enter into unusual associations.
Well, it's quite a day in Washington with the Capitol Hill Theater aggrandizing its egos and someone standing alone to take heat that belongs as much elsewhere as anywhere else.
Wish I could keep my eye on the performance but I'll have to check in on it later--around suppertime, after the dust has settled a bit...if it ever will.
