Space Weather News for May 19, 2007
DON'T MISS THIS:
When the sun sets tonight (Saturday, May 19th) go outside and look west. Venus and the crescent Moon will pop out of the twilight barely 1-degree apart. It's a spectacular pairing of the two brightest objects in the night sky.
The display will be visible from brightly lit cities and even through thin
clouds. Visit SpaceWeather.com for a sky map and photos. #
A Crescent Moon always puts me in mind of the Middle East--and of New Orleans.
And since there's just been a New Moon, we're creeping toward the Full Moon of May 31, 9:03 pm edt at the White House, with Moon 10Sag12 (too close to Fixed Star, Antares, for my liking; keywords: obsessed with success), and Sun 10Gem12.
This Full Moon will occur somewhat near the US natal ASC/DESC (Relationship) axis in the Sibly chart.
But for tonight:
Venus and the Crescent Moon "13Cancer"...DETERMINATION...
"One hand slightly flexed with a very prominent thumb" (a la Bill Clinton?)
Amusing how many politiicians have taken up the thumb-at-audience device in recent years--since Bill showed them how--for playing the determination card.
pos: exceptional steadiness and and a high sense of self-responsibility in every issue of moment;
neg/shadow side: unnecessary aggressiveness and a self-defeating shortsightedness.
Hillary was campaigning in New Orleans this weekend--does she affect Bill's determined thumb ploy when playing sincere? Perhaps so, but I've yet to observe it. Ah-h-h, but the campaign is young!
Crescent = crisis, Venus = jealousy (in her shadow side.)
So with Venus' triggering of the King of Alarm Eclipse degree (Aug 11, 1999) on Sep 11, 2001, I'm more wary of vengeful Venus than I used to be...especially when she's been scorned...how about you?
