There's an interesting astro-atmosphere on Capitol Hill today, Monday December 13, 2010 with Sun in Sagittarius, sign of The Seeker, and Moon in Pisces, sign of The Mystic.
Luna remains in watery Pisces past midnight so let's consider the traits of the current Sun Sag-Moon Pis blend of energies whether the congressional test vote for the Bush tax cut extension occurs today or not.
First we know that a Fire-Water blend is a steamy concoction capable of cleansing, sterilizing, or scalding. It is ardent, even volatile, with a temperament that can fluctuate wildly; impartiality is not its strong suit and fanaticism may be prominent: theatrics may ensue.
Sun Sag-Moon Pis is fervent, restless, and humanitarian, and indicates a rich imagination, deep convictions, and moralism. It is the blend of the irrational logician who can also be helpful, sympathetic, and generous.
About this blend, Noel Tyl says that, "the higher mind gains tremendous support from intuition' and, "The mind is above it all and quite pleased with itself." (Synthesis & Counseling in Astrology.)
Yes, this is the thinker and dreamer combo describing a sentimental philosopher who wants to understand and broaden horizons yet who may find intellectual principles too cold to bed down with. There's a tendency to be lavish with mundane expenditures for this blend contains within it a mischievous subpersonality of the wastrel.
(Congress has certainly proved to be that - especially if there's a warring misadventure to fund at tax payers' expense so that the power elite can make mega-bucks profiting obscenely off our investments! Perhaps you disagree? The tax cut extension bill on the Hill today will raise taxes only for the poorest Americans which to me seems a craven act of banditry considering that the wealthiest 2% whine to continue their tax windfall with no thought of the deficit when it comes to their pocket lining! One group needs decent food and shelter for their families, the other needs less greed in their hearts, and if 'trickle-down' were going to create jobs, it would have done so these last 10 years.)
Since Sun Sag-Moon Pis sees clearly the folly of other people's ways, giving advice is a favorite past time and usually includes telling one's personal story - it may babble on too long. Does this describe a filibuster? Sen. Bernie Sanders has ended his but we'll see if Friday's performance is picked up by another senator with filibuster on his mind for the Sun-Moon blend on a Monday (or on the first day of the week they gavel into session) colors the entire week of business on Capitol Hill.
All in all, Congress' lame duck session today may need more concentrated efforts, focus, and an awareness of its own tendency toward gullibility. The blend has only one 'Image for Integration: A jolly, shabbily dressed vicar tells raucous jokes to down-and-out children and high society at the Church garden party.' (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey.)
Well! That sounds much like President Obama signing the bill this morning to improve the food program for kids in school! 'No American child should go to school hungry' - total agreement here. Yet one may marvel at the success of forces in recent decades which seek to undermine and destroy the US public school system - wish someone would stop feeding that destructive monster its breakfast! Our failing test results tell the tale of America's lack of preparedness for competition in the power elite's 'new world' of 'free trade'.
Now today's Sun Sag-Moon Pis combo is shared natally by Frank Sinatra, Paul Klee, Bruno Huber, and the three folks whose quotes I leave with you:
"I love mankind - it's people I can't stand." Charles Schultz
"The salvation of mankind lies only in making everything the concern of all." Alexander Solzhenitsyn
"Back in the thirties we were told we must collectivize the nation because the people were so poor. Now we are told we must collectivize the nation because the people are so rich." William F. Buckley
