With China's counterpart officials to US Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner visiting Washington DC this week for meetings, I've had a peek at the natal horoscope of China and the nation's current progressions.
Click to view China's 1949 national horoscope which I published in 2010 on the occasion of Mr. Geithner's visit there. Plus, here's a creaky old post from way back in April 2006 when China came to visit the Bush-Cheney White House and international property rights were in the news. But what they actually discussed in 2006 is anyone's guess. My guess: their topic was more on finances than not.
And of course, President Hu Jintao of China was just here in January 2011 to mull over financial 'frictions' under the rays of a 'revolutionary' crisis-degreed Full Moon.
Now you know of the planetary line-up in action-oriented, Mars-ruled Aries these last few weeks with Mars @ '29 Aries' (a crisis or critical degree) today which conjoins China's Secondary Progressed Moon now in the same degree which times China's visit across the seas (Moon) to the US for it takes a lot of martian energy for such a journey. Of course, we may expect frustration, anger, and possibly quarrels to be part of any Moon/Mars contact along with a need for protection from danger (of a US default?)
In the Sabian Symbols, Marc Edmund Jones gives '29Ari' as "A Celestial Choir Singing"...VENERATION.
positive expression: a gift for the effective articulation or manifestation of those eternal realities through which all people find themselves at one.
negative/unconscious/shadow side: self-deception and an acceptance of every fantasy which will flatter the ego. (Wonder who's trying to flatter whom? jc)
Isn't veneration of ancestors an important part of Chinese culture? I'm envisioning lighted lanterns floating across water.
In The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac, Adriano Carelli gives the word picture for '29Ari' as: "A Heavy War Tank."
Today's Sun degree and China's Secondary Progressed ASC degree '19 Taurus' = "A Newly Formed Continent" (usually thought to represent America, of course)...ORIGINALITY.
pos: a revolutionary potentiality by which each individual is enabled to remodel the entire face of the universe. (Or to establish a one-world-government? jc)
neg/unconscious/shadow side: a genius for futile turmoil and persistent upset.
Carelli gives '19Tau' as: "A Maid of Dazzling Beauty Pouring Water from a Jug into a Pitcher" which echoes the sign of Aquarius, yes, but in this instance, it reminds me of mankind's old habit of robbing Peter to pay Paul, or, of transferring funds or making a payment. My guess is that the 'pitcher' belongs to China.
However, since Carelli recommends not rounding up in degrees, let's consider the word picture of today's Sun and China's Sec ASC for '18Tau' which may seem more apt considering the financial relationship between China and America these days and the links between Taurus the Bull and worldly greed for gold and wealth:
'18Tau' = "Two Furious Bulls Goring Each Other."
So we see described a dazzling beauty or two goring bulls going at one another: I'll let you be the decider on this one!
Also this week, the US Congress returns to the scene of their crimes: Capitol Hill. And here we go again.
