May 11, 2011: Has Newt Gingrich announced his run for US president yet?
He's supposed to be doing so today and weeks ago the story was that his prez bid announcement would be made from Philadelphia's *Independence Hall. My assumption is that announcing from such a location would be a shout-out to Tea Partisans and a bid for hyper-patriotism.
Well, here's Mr. Gingrich's birth data (hour unknown) with a few notes on his natal chart in case he sticks around the campaign trail long enough, successfully stores his past morality baggage of malfeasance and adultery in a dark enough closet, and finally manages to finagle the presidency of the United States.
Personally, I prefer someone who doesn't want the job so obsessively!
And isn't it interesting to note that today is when the planet of announcements, oration, reporting, negotiations, and communications of all kinds - Mercury - leaves its shadow, the degree of its last retrograde station, and begins to move forward into the light?
That degree is '25 Aries' and its Sabian Symbol is:
"A Double Promise Reveals Its Inner and Outer Meaning" which Marc Edmund Jones gives as: SENSIBILITY.
positive expression: a facility of adjustment by which everything in a given situation may be brought into the fullest co-operation with everything else.
negative/unconscious/shadow side: compromising insincerity and a lean to chicanery in all human relationships.
A two-faced degree! Yet it's almost as if Mr. Gingerich makes use of Astrology for its timing function, isn't it?
Update 11:30 am edt: just found bwo Twitter, The Nation's list of the eleven craziest things Newt ever said...only eleven?
