These days at Stars Over Washington my schedule is limited so I prefer writing about wider issues and broader cosmic influences such as Solstices, major planetary conjunctions, inaugurations, and other political and astrological concerns and events. But considering recent world events involving the US (unpredictable leader drops the MOAB on Afghanistan tunnels), North Korea (unpredictable leader threatens another missile launch), China, Russia, plus, other concerns, here's a bit about the cosmic flavors of this weekend, Saturday April 15th through Sunday the 16th.
This weekend the (Tropical) Sun is in Mars-ruled Aries and the Moon floats through Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius into Saturn-ruled Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business--plus, Luna triggers the Cardinal World Point of 00Cap00 as she floats so a consideration of the weekend's Sun-Moon blend just could be illuminating, don't you think?
In Today's News: The US Military Defends Its Use of 'The Mother of All Bombs" (MOAB).
April 15 (and April 14, today): Sun Aries-Moon Sagittarius is a double Fire blend of volatility, brash aggression, passion, and 'grandiose philosophizing' with a self-centered mentality that is little concerned with the feelings of others. What double Fire is sensitive to are the hidden opportunities in every situation. And to Sun Aries-Moon Sag add impatience with limitations, outspokenness, and adventurism. High energy and vitality also characterize this combination but leaning only on intuition and hunches can lead to instability, even chaos. A need to drop everything and go away for the weekend is typical of Sun Aries-Moon Sagittarius (Sag, the sign of travel). Hopefully this does not mean more bombs dropping. In addition, this blend's tendency toward committing daredevil acts can sabotage material security while its capacity for relating to others remains childlike and stunted.
Sun Aries-Moon Sagittarius is the blend of the American Revolution (April 19, 1775 5:00 am LMT Lexington, MA), philosopher Thomas Hobbes, artist Vincent Van Gogh, and sitarist Ravi Shankar.
Sun Aries-Moon Sag is revealed by one Image for Integration: "A child shoots an arrow toward the enchanted castle in the distance as he follows the road less traveled." (Arrow, missile, MOAB?)
April 16 Sun Aries-Moon Capricorn is a Fire-Earth blend of scorched earth, aka, the bulldozer. Specifically it is a blend of ambition, force, and tough-mindedness and denotes a domineering maverick at home in the realm of Politics where its headstrong aggression can be demonstrated and its tendency to be "a thorn in the side of the status quo" is evident. A good organizer, Sun Aries-Moon Cap can be sensible and pragmatic as it "wages war against oppressive laws and traditions." This blend denotes a natural leader with a mix of risk-taking and caution when problem solving is approached.
Hinting of Mr. Trump, Sun Aries-Moon Cap is shared by both entertainment and political figures such as: former US VP Al Gore, German statesman Otto von Bismarck, former British PM John Major, actor-comedian Eric Idle, film director David Lean, composer Steven Sondheim, and actor Rod Steiger. Its Images for Integration are revealing: "A young soldier is rewarded by the King for exceptional bravery in the cause of freedom and individual human rights...Columbus discovers America and a new world order is born." (my italics).
And in 2017 that would be the 'new world order' that global power elites are working so hard to repeal and replace via bombs, missiles, and a refreshed 'war on terror' which will be made more obvious as The Great American Eclipse approaches manifestation on August 21, 2017 in vain, arrogant Leo at a critical 29th degree and eclipses the natal Ascendant (Self; Physical Body) of Donald J. Trump.
