Is government shut down Dec 18th a bad thing?

Perhaps Capitol Hill Democrats shouldn't be too hasty. Maybe full throated instead of reserved Republican bluff-calling is in order as many people have mentioned before now. But really! This evening's Reid-McConnell fireworks on the House floor should be savored not decried! (Link to text below.)

Shut Down Time has rolled around again and politically its 1994-esque vibe lingers over The Swamp like a wayward wisp from a Georgetown condo bong. The natives are in high gear for their performances in Capitol Hill's Political Theater in that Masonic Temple of deliberation and legislation we call the Capitol Building.

I'm looking at a horoscope of December 18, 2010 midnight when the governing money runs out. Looks magical with US Secondary Progressed (Sec) Neptune (the actor or pretender) rising along with tranisitng Juno (abuse; legalities) at '27Vir' = "Elderly Ladies Drink Afternoon Tea in a Luxurious Home." Well, I'm sure they do but one thinks of teabaggers rising in protest or...something.

Mars 8Cap32 conjoins what can only be called a 'nasty' Fixed Star, Facies (ruthlessness; the victim and our hotheaded planetary troublemaker is still out of bounds, and it's an Hour of the Sun; Sun 27Sag10 at IC, of course (midnight), is near Mercury 29Sag12 Rx; Mercury conjoins another difficult Fixed Star Acumen (enduring attacks which weaken) and Sun, as you know, represents the leader in a mundane chart.

You may be interested to know that in 1994, the Republican Party's natal Moon 27Sco50 (I know! conjunct Obama's natal MC) was induced to expand on a large scale the party's reigning need (Moon) for control and big money (Sco) because tr Jupiter and tr Pluto paid natal Moon visits during the year:

Tr Jupiter to n Moon: desires become grand; emotional levels rise; lavish spending and extravagant gestures gain the admiration of others; popularity; higher social status may be attained.

Tr Pluto to n Moon: environments shift; emotions intensify; turmoil but with potential fulfillment; powerful motivations lead to success; emotional manipulations used against others.

Another double transit to the Republican natal chart took place in 1994 providing them with advantages then that they don't have now involving the Illuminati planets (or illumination planets, if you prefer), Uranus and Neptune, then traversing and shaking up Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business:

Tr Uranus to n Jupiter (in n 2nd house of Money and Values): horizons broaden; circumstances bring chances to choose brand new paths; a new or unusual type of training is taken up; freedom and independence are demanded in political and religious endeavors; great potential for intellectual and economic growth.

Tr Neptune to n Jupiter: intellectual, spiritual, and economic growth are focused upon; illusion is combined with exaggeration and extravagance; idealism turns into fanaticism; the legal system and stock markets are affected or clouded in some way; get-rich-quick-schemes should be avoided; more is promised than can be delivered.

Transparency in government is one casualty of the GOP's 1994 'Contract with America'.

At midnight on Dec 18, 2010, the Moon 00Gem44 is in 9th house (chart set for Capitol Bldg) conjoins a difficult Fixed Star of sorrow, Alcyone (something to cry about) in 9th house as the American people (Moon) do without while partisans indulge their dueling ideologies (9th h) and vie for the chance to boss the other party around and strut like kings and queens of the Hill.

Ever since Barack Obama took the Oval Office he's had not just the worst conditions to deal with (and yes, I too blame the Washington political class for creating the conditions of collapse and for enabling others to profit obscenely off our sweat and interest rates), but he's had opponents under his feet at every step, intent on ruining whatever chances the American people have had these last almost-three years for getting back on ours...Rush Limbaugh announced the script from the start, as have other GOPers who'd rather see the US totally fail and our children starve in the streets than see President Barack Obama succeed.

Or, at least that's their globalist script and they're sticking to it.

Well, I'll hush for now. It's late, it's a busy December, and my blogging time just ended (plus, Craig comes on in a mo!) If you like, we might discuss what astrological advantages the Republican Party enjoys now based on the natal and progressed charts of Washington's Party of Oilcan Harrys.

But getting the Pearl Purehearts to complain loudly and often enough is a real challenge for the retaining of our nation.

Continuing Resolution until Feb-Mar

Senate - Continuing Resolution of Federal Budget

Instead of a funding bill that would keep the government running through the end of the current fiscal year, Congress will likely approve a short-term extension into February or March. That was favored by Republicans, because it will allow them to start cutting federal budgets right away, not in the following fiscal year.

Rush . .. .? partisian political pundtry seems to be the coin of the realm of late. Republicans removed words refering to the financial system i.e., magic, alchemy, deregulation, wall street, and shadow banking. Like good Christains do.

Hi Jude,

I don't have any astrology to offer, but I do have a thought about your assertion that Obama has had it rough with his opponents trying to undermine everything he does, his failure being at the top of their agenda.

It was the same for Clinton (I think it was worse), probably the same for Carter, and more than likely the same for every Democrat to hold office the past thirty or forty years. True, it's gotten worse over the decades -- and I only became politically active in my early twenties when Clinton ran against Bush, so have no idea what it was like before then -- but Obama isn't really dealing with anything that other Democratic Presidents haven't had to deal with.

What I'm getting from my friends in DC, though, is an entirely different picture and one that could seriously hurt Obama's chances for re-election or, at the very least, not having a very serious Primary Challenge in 2012.

You see, Jude, it's now common knowledge in the Democratic Party that Obama is a backstabbing, more than likely pathological liar who uses people left and right and then drops them without apology when they need him. Leaves them hanging in the wind with barely a thank you.

The Dems are BEYOND angry with this man and want absolutely nothing more to do with him. According to the conversations I've had, there are many in the House and Senate -- well, those not losing their jobs at the end of the month, that is -- who can't even bring themselves to say his name let alone even CONSIDER supporting him in 2012.

I suspect The One assumes he can somehow win them back. Flash his pearly whites, slap a few backs, and it'll all be forgiven. But if the anger I'm hearing is as real and deep and visceral as it sounds, I sincerely, strongly doubt it.

Interestingly, and this is where some astrology does come in, he'll be dealing with the Transiting South Node conjunct his Moon throughout Primary Season in 2012. So it wouldn't surprise me if he found himself feeling betrayed, depleted, depressed, forgotten, and short-tempered during that time because of a strong challenge -- with the Moon involved, it could easily be a woman -- for the Nomination.

But, as my friends in DC would say -- a few are major fundraisers, some Congresspeople, a couple Senators and their aides and spouses, a few reporters -- , he made that bed and now he's gotta lie in it.

I hope everyone will keep in mind that even though it's popular to talk about slashing the federal budget, what that budget does is pay a lot of salaries, my husband's included. Should we cut unnecessary expenditures? Absolutely. Should we put even more families in a position of being unable to pay their mortages? I'm not so quick to think a government shut-down is a way to show anybody anything--instead the little guy suffers. Is everyone aware that, even with a govt shut-down, Congress still gets paid? We need to think about the effects of partisan battles on the everyday and ordinary.

Thanks, Alex! Good articles including the one by Jamie Dupree.

Anonymous, they think they removed those words - like astronomers thought they 'removed' Pluto from planethood and from being used in charts as the global thug and assassin he is.

Duse! i've wondered how you're doing and thank you profusely for the direct info on DC opinions of BHO! i suspect you're correct on the Rs' objections to ANY Dem W-H (an oddity of fanaticism and self-love on the Rs' part) and i think it has something to do w the R Party's natal Sun conj US n Sun (adult), and D Party's natal Moon conj US n Moon (child) - hence the usual Rs' "take responsibility for your own life" stance (always intoned to save money for the 2%ers - they are NOT their brother's keepers) and the Ds being known as the welfare-dependence party - Mama! aka, the Nanny State (so the masses will vote D.)

The stuff you cite on what DCers really think of BHO supports his Lunar Phase portents operative when he took office - from my WPress blog:

"Barack Obama is in his 1st Quarter phase which began appr Oct 2005. This is the ‘crisis in action’ stage of life when willpower is strong. It is a time for forceful managerial activity and the essential drive is to build the framework that serves for objectivation of new social ideals and future relationships.

There is a sense of self-exaltation when faced with old, crumbling structures which may bring a ruthlessness for consolidating the new ideal.

March 2009 will mark his entry into the Gibbous Phase--"

'Ruthlessness' and 'willpower' stood out to me when i wrote that and now w what you cite, it seems oh so true.

One more word about it: Chicago.

Thanks for commenting in your always insightful style, and

Happy Holidays! Jude

And oh, Julie - i did not realize it was so close to home for you and you know i never wish for anyone to suffer no matter what the sold-out fatcats of Washington hand us or scam us with while still lining their own pockets.

Of course a short term extension will have to be passed! And i hope it lasts until March 2011 at the very least. They're shrinking America, Julie :-( in ways too numerous to mention (and the afront to SS is a very bad idea - for us.)

We-the-people are needed as never before! Jan 5th and the Rs and teabaggers cometh w slashing of benefits for the poor in mind. Leaves more $ for them, i guess, but where is Tiny Tim when we need him for mascot? It is to be fretted that a return to a Dickensian society won't be anyone's cuppa Tea (except the 2%ers who own the tea-exporting companies and all the sugar refineries, too.)

But enough. m'dear! It's December 17th, the weekend is here, and I'm...

Wishing Happy Holidays to you & yours! Jude

Update 1.8.13: President Obama pleased the power elite enough to be re-elected after all. Same globalist agenda yet somehow an improvement over Mitt 47% Romney...US SP Mars Retrograde Mars being felt strongly now w Shootings (by males), and Defense cuts conning through ' sequester' or other methods. Also Vietnam vets just nominated by BHO for Defense (Hagel), State (Kerry), and VIA Director (Brennan.)

But will regressive (Rx) Republicans (sore losers...Mars) obstruct the president's choices for His cabinet with arguments (Mars)?

Neocons are desperate to force US into war again...Mars Rx. :(

That's one primary reason for current GOP demands for domestic program cuts--more money for war, more unemployed males (Mars Rx) to send off to foreign battles for the global governance they seek.

That is what they did in 1994 with the Republican coup of the House-- cut Medicare and more (which harmed US children) and expanded the military.

Predictable AND tiresomely psychopathic!

Kindle typos--please pardon--I don't like hunting/pecking! 'conning' should be 'coming'...and Brennan is nominee for CIA. Sheesh!
