The US Senate returns to their Masonic Temple (Capitol Building) tomorrow, October 12, 2010 with the Sun in Libra, Moon in Sagittarius, a personality blend which may give us clues concerning the atmosphere of the day.
Libra's mental airiness with Sagittarius' fiery questing and seeking functions give Tuesday a 'live wire' quality that crackles all the way down to Georgia from whence I type. Boredom will not be the order of the day!
Sun Lib-Moon Sag is a blend indicating idealism, foresight, and intelligence with a missionary zeal (uh oh!), persuasive powers, and philanthropic interests. Its adventurous nature and generous spirit combine in an ambitious yet easy-going combination of energies.
One's latest obsession inspires one to 'hold forth' before the next available audience yet this is nothing new on Capitol Hill, is it? ;p This blend gives the Senate a 'doing its own thing' vibe which is also nothing new for this exalted body which was established to see all sides of any issue and to be deliberative about it.
There is a humanitarian 'concerned for all' tone as well but that remains to be demonstrated to the American people as this session goes forward (I never forget that the current condition of this nation has been overseen by the US Senate made up of people who were on duty, therefore, they allowed or enabled these messes to happen.)
Sun Lib-Moon Sag is the 'formulator and mouthpiece for the grand vision that takes society by storm' combo and if you've read this blog once or twice you know how little I value the globalist agenda for world domination...in a word, nada. Storms, we've certainly had with more to come.
Exploring new paths is one of the orders of the day, however, so we'll see where the proffered paths lead. This is a 'team player' combo possessing an optimistic and dedicated commitment to the group agenda. (That's what worries me - unless or until Congress gets serious about protecting America's sovereignty and the well being of we-the-people.)
Good humor is in evidence here along with an ability to see the larger vision yet there is a caution: a tendency to overstretch and over-estimate ones capacities, a huge part of the reason the US is in the lamentable condition she's in, as you may agree. This blend can give a blindness to its own deeper motives and too proud and aloof a bearing. Yes, the US Senate is precisely aloof and, some think, overly proud - and considering the state of our nation in 2010, I agree with them wholeheartedly, for overstretched are we.
"America is too rich to ever go bankrupt" is a sentiment I read often online after 9/11/01 yet it has been proven to be a fallacy (high-frequency trading on Wall Street notwithstanding) with 9/11's Moon (the people) at '28 Gemini' = BANKRUPTCY. (A Moon's sign and condition in a horoscope describes a reigning need.)
The Sun Lib-Moon Sag blend is shared natally by Nobel Peace Prize winner Sir Joseph Chamberlain (1925), Sean Lennon, Christopher Reeve, Dory Previn, and two folks whom I shall quote as follows because their words may just apply to the US Senate:
"I explained to him that I had simple tastes and didn't want anything ostentatious, no matter what it cost me." Art Buchwald
"I see people out there enjoying themselves and I want to join them. I like the camaraderie of the House." Betty Boothroyd, former Speaker of the House of Commons.
