Friday June 28, 2013: June 28, 1914 and, Meanwhile, Back in Texas
by Jude Cowell
On this day, June 28th, in 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie were assassinated, an event used to precipitate World War I. Many people know that particular world conflagration as "The War to End All Wars" though their faith in such overblown campaign rhetoric (by Woodrow Wilson who secretly pledged America into the war via international bankers but had campaigned on a 'peace platform')--well, their faith was extinguished decades ago especially when it comes to war, the Pentagon's reason for existence.
Meanwhile, back in Texas circa June 2013, you and everyone else has heard of the filibuster in the State Capitol by Rep. Wendy Davis that lead to the midnight clock running out on the abortion bill the monarchic Republicans were attempting to shove through the legislature. They further post-dated the record to show they'd taken the vote in time--by midnight--but got caught and had to declare their bill-shoving a failure at 3:03 am.
And so the prideful Texas Governor Rick Perry has vowed to call another special session of the state legislature for Monday July 1, 2013 so that the Republicans can shove the bill through in earnest this time without those pesky Democrats (and, gasp! women!) interfering.
Yet with the Republican Party, one may wonder at their weird disconnect between saving babies from abortion, a noble cause but one I believe politicians should have no say in) while passing and proposing laws that take food from the mouths of hungry kids (who already exist) and pregnant women but that's a GOP Schizophrenia for another post.
So on Monday July 1, 2013, we find that until a few minutes before 5:00 pm Texas Time, the Moon (people; the public) is in fiery Aries, then moves into Venus-ruled Taurus, sign of the stubborn bull (and the Golden Calf.) The Sun @9Can+ remains conjoined to Fixed Star Alhena (to have a mission; having strong beliefs as I'm certain that GOP leadership has) all the day and I thought you might be interested in the Sun Can-Moon Aries combination for July 1, 2013, which will imprint on all activities of that date:
This is a steamy Water-Fire blend of energies signifying potentials for moodiness, shrewdness, tenaciously surviving, and having insights. It describes those who are defensive but forthright, feminine but feisty (!), and able to protect those within their care.
Perhaps a familiar verse from the pen of someone who was born with Sun Can-Moon Aries is appropriate here:
We flatter those we scarcely know
We please the fleeting guest
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox, a poet of the 'new age' persuasion and best known for her, "Laugh and the world laughs with you, Weep, and you weep alone" verse.
Meanwhile, back in Texas, I don't believe that what austere Republicans are perpetrating all across the United States of America is thoughtless at all for it's too well-planned not to be purposeful. But its austerity/social-wedge-issues agenda is definitely meting out hard blows against our democracy as it divides, conquers, and beggars the American people.

Now there's a four-pack of villainous sidewinders coiled up together!
