At sunrise of Karl Rove's last official day at the White House, there are some interesting Fixed Stars active for the day and a few midpoint pictures to consider.
And since today is the 10th anniversary of Princess Diana's and Dodi's deaths, these Stars are in effect in relation to their suppposed assassinations.
The Sun and Fixed Star, Thuban, arose together. A while later, Mercury conjunct Fixed Star, Denebola (to go against society) arose with Mercury parallel Menkar (a victim of the Unconscious.)
In constellation Cetus, the Whale, Menkar relates to insights and unconscious forces issuing from the Collective, and may give an ability to achieve something great on behalf of the Collective. But Menkar also relates to disease, disgrace, and ruin.
Denebola has another set of keywords: being on the fringe of the establishment. Sounds perfect for Rove-the-trickster's removal to Texas or Hades (wherever) for he'll be politically involved in some way such as focusing on his tricks for the 2008 election.
Thuban's rising with the Sun takes the day, keywords: guarding or protecting a treasure. Thuban resides within constellation, Draco, the Dragon.
Being miserly with money or ideas is often the expression of Thuban. Resisting the nemesis of hoarding is the lesson of this Star with its connection to giving and sharing. And Pluto is, of course, the dragon guarding the treasure.
With some of the current influences in Rove's progressions, it wouldn't be a surprise if there's a tinge of financial fraud attached to him--and there's rich man Jupiter, symbol of the GOP, at the Foundation of the sunrise chart, still at the "A golden-haired goddess of opportunity" degree of 10Sag. Has he reaped a reward from the GOP for his work? What do you think?
Perhaps there already has been such a fraudulent tinge and I've not heard of it--for I consider a day spent without thinking of Karl Rove to be a pretty decent day ordinarily (so hopefully today will improve after I publish this post.)
Here are a couple of his current midpoint pictures relating to career matters--first the Minors (from the mental-causal plane):
Pluto/NN = Neptune: power of the half-truth; deception as a tool; win at any cost (at which he excels);
Pluto/ASC = Jupiter: receving a bounty; drive to major success; a favorable turn of life circumstances (clearing out of Dodge before the sheriff knocks? and he may be attempting to outrun the upcoming Sep 11 Solar Eclipse when missing emails or other paperwork may surface); a large gain; generosity;
Moon/MC = Mercury: thinking about one's position in life.
His Secondary Progressed chart has:
Saturn/Uranus = Pluto: tremendous fear of loss; upheaval to protect assets; rebellion against one's lot in life; desire to overcome a difficult situation through extraordinary effort; harm through force majeur; an act of violence or brutality.
Mercury/Jupiter = Sun: an orator with expressive gestures (such as a third finger toward Congress and its subpoenas?); talkativeness; successful solutions; an actor.
With his resignation, Rove is making waves to get to shore, trying to save or guard what's left. Hope someone goes over the books with a fine-toothed comb, as they used to say.
Today's Sun Vir/Moon Aries Image for Integration is:
A jolly, rotund monk enjoying his food and wine while excelling in well-worn Latin sayings, witty responses and kindly good humor. (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzy Harvey.)
Rotund, for sure, but kindly?? And this analytical combo is "the practical joker"!
Sunrise midpoint pics influencing the day are:
Saturn/NN = MC: standing alone in life; little joy from accomplishments; separation from colleagues; mourning (for Diana and Dodi for sure--Rove? not so much);
Mars/Neptune: Moon: indecision; sensitivity; nervous weakness; crooks; feeling off-course (aka, America--thanks, turdblossom);
Jupiter/MC = NN: fortunate associations; an engaging manner in contact with others.
Guess that last one refers to the Press. For when it comes to Karl Rove, I am not engaged--unless there's a warrant out for his arrest for what he has perpetrated upon America.
