Monday February 13, 2012: Dreams and the Sun AQ/Moon Scorpio Blend
by Jude Cowell
In Virginia, around 11:00 am this morning under a Scorpio Moon, President Obama releases his 'budget', that dreamy list of numbers that no one in Washington takes seriously. The US does not have an official budget and no laws are ever signed to make it so--by design, no doubt. This budget will hint at what the president 'would do' if he's re-elected. An app is available for the public consideration so check the White House website if you wish.
As you know, in Mundane Astrology the travels of Earth's Moon through the Zodiacal signs tell us something about our public mood and daily lives with the fluctuating Moon changing signs about every 2 1/2 days.
Blending traits of the Moon's sign with the day's Sun sign, we may glean flavors of daily events and the people involved in them--Sun = the leader, Moon = the people. So let's see if there are hints, budgetary or otherwise, within today's Sun AQ/Moon Scorpio combination of Air-Water signs, a misty and ethereal blend to be sure, perfect for the visionary dreams of a president operating under monetary restraints especially since rigid yet watery Scorpio, with its deep passions and emotions, is the sign of Big Business.
A Sun AQ/Moon Scorpio blend describes keen insight, pride, fierce principles, and self-reliance which exerts a powerful and hypnotic magnetism within the environment. This is a combo of an ambitious reformer (though as you know, the US tax code remains un-reformed and clunky.)
Emotionally, it's a blow hot'n'cold blend which tends to get mired within its own dogmatic opinions and prejudices so we may expect lots of push back from Obama opponents concerning what is really just a wisp of a budget proposal, not real at all. Perhaps the ongoing midpoint picture involving the speculation-wastrel-grand schemes pair, Jupiter and Neptune which last hooked up by conjunction all through 2009, Mr. Obama's first year in office, directly upon US natal Moon in Aquarius which more deeply involved the American people in the government's dreamy grand schemes and some legislative deals of dubious merit.
You've seen it before since 2011: Jupiter/Neptune = Uranus: imaginary v real; sudden recognition of a difficult situation; coming down to earth with bump.
Curiously, the Sun AQ/Moon Sco blend is shared natally by a (John) Adams descendant and I shall close this post with his most famous quote which, along with the Sun AQ/Moon Sco combo, begins This Week in Washington with this flavor:
"Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organisation of hatreds." --Henry B. Adams
Well said, Henry B.
US Inaugural Moon 2009 returns to 29Sco45 this evening at 7:30 pm est in 3rd house in DC. The Sabian Symbol of this critical-crisis degreed Moon remains in effect for the duration of President Obama's first term in office: "A Halloween Jester" which Dane Rudhyar describes as 'RELIEF FROM TENSION'--and I'd be quite prepared for that eventuality!
