Bloggers can be tres cool!
From Google's cache, someone had the foresight to snag a screen shot of the disappearing news article from KHQA Chicago concerning a meeting between president-elect Barack Obama and Gov. Rod Blagojevich during the afternoon of Nov 5, 2008 when they met to discuss who would fill Obama's vacated senate seat.
This records the opposite of what the president-elect said about it, doesn't it? So I wanted to get the screen shot's link onto this blog for future reference, if necessary.
Now here's a mini-peek at Blagojevich's natal chart - born Dec 10, 1956, Chicago, IL, birth hour unknown.
Through the 24 hours, Moon was in Pisces (15:29 to 27:38), Sun in Sagittarius (18Sag10 to 19Sag11.) Sun conjunct asteroids Hebe and Hidalgo.
His father's heritage is Serbian, says Wikipedia, and his name is pronounced, near as I can tell: Blog oy' a vich.
There is a revealing midpoint picture which applies no matter his birth time:
Mercury-Pluto = Neptune: overdoing issues drains energy and wears out one's welcome; pursuit of peculiar plans; cunning, falsehood, libel, slander, calumny, and defamation.
Sun Sag-Moon Pis is a steamy Fire/Water combo. Steam can sterilize or scald and has a reputation for being volatile, passionately emotional, and moody.
The shadow side of this blend lacks the ability to take an impersonal view. "What's in it for me?" may often be heard as it clearly was on the tapes of his phone calls (if you listen between the bleeps) demanding big bucks for the senate seat appointment. Or he may have grabbed the seat himself and joined the other big time pocket-liners of Congress.
Instability and impracticality can wreak havoc in the life as this slave to moods expresses an urgent fanaticism. This combo has a proud and independent streak mixed with vulnerability; conforming to convention is not the usual with a Fire-Water blend.
Sun Sag-Moon Pis: irrational logic, deep convictions, and open receptivity describe this blend, yet there can also be gullibility, lack of concentration or discrimination, and vacillation. It's an 'optimism vs pessimism' combination with a lack of the necessary patience to ground ideas in the real world.

So what about the planets on Nov 5, 2008?
One midpoint picture is worth a thousand words...here's the one that has most to do with meetings that day:
Sun-NN = Pluto: being persuasive; ordering and controlling others; exerting influence; public prominence.
Thing is, it's Pluto who's the operative or trigger in this picture of energies, and powerful 'secret hand' Pluto is at '30Sag'...Sabian Symbol?
