Mr. Huntsman has begun speaking (10:06 am, there he is on my TV), with the Sun lingering on the 29th degree of Gemini (an eager and/or critical announcement?) and Moon in Pisces; Mercury, planet of announcements, is at '11 Cancer' today, Sabian Symbol: "A Clown Making Grimaces." (Jones.) He said the 'I'm a candidate' words at 10:07 am edt (for Astrology buffs who wish to set up the horoscope and follow his candidacy.)
Sun Gem-Moon Pis is an Air-Water combo (misty, ethereal) which indicates sentimentality, versatility, and adaptability. It's a talkative blend of a chameleon who can be submissive but cunning, vacillating, and poetic with much literary ability.
The blend's weaknesses include a lack of boundaries, a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none approach, and a tendency to withdraw when feeling misunderstood.
"Images for Integration: A weather vane on a church spire sparkles in the sunshine as the wind twirls it around, turning it into a mysterious sky gem...Peter Pan marries Tinkerbell and they live happily ever after in Never Never Land." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)
Uh-oh! Well, 'Never Never Land' may turn out to be a description of where Mr. Huntsman lives while dreaming of gaining the US presidency! ('Clap your hands if you believe'?) Yet he did manage the state of Utah rather well while governor, he asserts. His will be a 'high road' campaign, says he.
The Sun Gemini-Moon Pisces combo is shared natally by a journalist of the past, Arnold Bennett, so let's close with a quote he is known for which may put a cherry on top of today's ice cream sundae of presidential-bid announcements:
"Journalists say a thing that they know isn't true, in the hope that if they keep on saying it long enough it will be true."
And so do politicians.
