John Corzine resigned from MF Global on November 4, 2011 after the company filed for bankruptcy and Democrat Corzine's testimony on Capitol Hill today probably won't clue anyone in on where all the money went, as this Big Player CEO admits to not knowing much about his business.
This will be Mr. Corzine's first public testimony since the MF Global collapse over which he presided.
Astrologically speaking, crisis is shown in his natal horoscope through a YOD pattern (aka, a 'Finger of God' with potential for: a turning point; crossroads; special task; spiritual opportunity) which involves very dynamic planetary energies of power (Pluto) along with the North Node of the Moon (NN) indicating contact with the public and with groups.
Born January 1, 1947 near Taylorville, Illinois, Mr. Corzine's natal Sun conjoins energetic Mars, planet of action and desire. The YOD creates midpoint pictures which you may wish to consider as the turmoil and scandal swirl around him with fallout possibly affecting the White House. His natal Sun and Mars are in Capricorn, Pluto is Rx in Leo (12:53, conjunct Saturn 7:20 Rx) and NN is at 11Gem24, near Uranus 18Gem55 Rx.
Eclipse watchers may be interested to note that Corzine's NN was eclipsed by the June 1, 2011 Solar Eclipse and his Uranus will be eclipsed tomorrow, December 10, by a Lunar Eclipse @ 18Gem11--and eclipses do tend to uncover secrets especially from the past (where many of them lurk.)
Plus, the current 'peculiar turn of events' Solar Eclipse of November 25, 2011 opposes his natal Sun and Mars--ouch! That's a lot of karmic energy from the cosmos hitting Mr. Corzine's natal planets and its reap-what-you-sow vibes seem to have caught up with him.
YOD midpoint pictures:
Pluto/NN = Sun: ruthlessly imposing one's will on others; making use of people; gained respect.
Pluto/NN = Mars: influential people met through groups or contacts; force or invective emphasis during meetings; violence or brutality used in the presence of others; a desire to make others amenable to one's wishes; being placed in somebody else's hand or power.
(Ebertin; Munkasey; all, any, or none may apply and are subject to transits and progressions.)
Now Michael Munkasey in his Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets gives some interesting potentials in Politics and Business for the Pluto/NN combination though not all may apply to Mr. Corzine's situation at the present time--
Thesis: violent or criminal people who secretly enter the country at any given opportunity; sewage or waste compacts; agreements over reciprocal rights for info obtained under clandestine methods.
Antithesis: people who may not have the best interests of the country or business in mind; treaties involving the exchange of secretive or clandestine data; security or treaty breakdowns due to the actions of others.
Group Activities of John Corzine
As you know, only a birth date is needed to look at the Solar Eclipse Series into which John Corzine, former governor of New Jersey, was born--the 2 South--which last manifested @ 4Cap14 on December 25, 2000. By the Sun's degree (4Cap14), his PE (Pre-Natal Eclipse) is being triggered on Christmas Day 2011 and perhaps some of the 'uncovering' will include his involvement with certain 'groups' due to the flavor of the 2S Series:
'involvement in groups and feeling that one will gain a great deal through the association.' (Paraphrasing Predictive Astrology, Bernadette Brady.)
The 2S Series is shared natally by Ronald Reagan and Noam Chomsky (I know!), and is the PE of the Bush-Cheney administration--and of the New Millennium we all held out such grand hopes for until the White House was usurped with the help of the SCOTUS in December 2000, when the eclipse occurred in Saturn-ruled Capricorn opposite US natal Venus in Cancer.
The next Solar Eclipse in the 2S Series will occur on January 6, 2019 @ 15Cap.
(Don't know about you, but the Bush-Cheney coup was the moment I knew for certain that America was in deep poo feathers and Washington DC has done nothing in the meantime to totally relieve such foreboding from my troubled brow. Thus I blog.)
Well, Mr. Corzine obviously gained a great deal as his PE suggests he might. Now what sort of 'deal' will be presented by the US Congress to one of their own?
Newt Watchers! Today's Fresh Air concerns an interview with Washington Post reporter Karen Tumulty about her decades' long coverage of the career of Newt Gingrich. Apparently Newtish secrets may be revealed in this look-back at Newt's years as Speaker of the House, "changing the power structure" on Capitol Hill. And of course, Newt's serious ethics charges cut short his congressional 'brilliance'.
The broadcast is about to air momentarily (est) and audio will be available later this afternoon.
Funny, but I'd forgotten that once Newt Gingrich was TIME's 'Man of the Year'! Here's his natal horoscope if you've managed to miss it so far.
