Clinton-Obama: Catfight in Cleveland

Rrraowrrwwrrr! The fur may fly tonight as Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama square off in Cleveland, OH, 9:00 pm est. Will the lions' mitts be off?

With two US natal planets angular--Saturn in Libra rising, US n Sun at MC, our natal Sun-Saturn square will have an outlet and platform during tonight's rumble.

Sun-Saturn squares indicate one who (or an entity that) is defensive and fears rejection. Let's say that Obama represents the Sun here and Clinton = Saturn, the establishment actor. Obama brings the new--or at least hints of it--and Clinton is the more traditional whether or not she would be so as president--the fact is, she's the older of the two.

A Sun-Saturn square must be willing to suffer the frustration of not reaching goals so that judgment may be sharpened for making decisive plans "going forward." For success, this is the one-step-at-a-time aspect where feelings of inferiority must be conquered, yet not everyone admires people who 'come on strong' (Planets in Aspect, Robert Pelletier.)

This may be Hillary's result if she criticizes too harshly Obama's lack of experience for she has already delivered her judgment from on-high: his approach to foreign policy is "reckless and naive.'

(One must wonder how much more reckless and naive foreign policy could get than that of pie-in-the-sky-bombs-on-the-ground George Bush.)

So tonight in Cleveland, chart-ruler Venus is in 4th house in close conjunction with Mercury 11AQ26/37, and Chiron is triggering the recent Solar Eclipse at the "Unmasking degree" (she may have hopes of further unmasking Obama--bet she does.)

Moon's applying aspects: square Chiron (1A30), trine Uranus (2A05), but then a crash against a square to veiling Neptune (6A22.)

Sun makes no applying aspects, leading me to believe that Obama's position may stay the same after tonight--in the catbird seat. Rrraowwrrr! Yet if Hillary is correct about Barack's lack of substance, his lion's roar may turn out to be only a pussycat's snarl. Personally I'd rather have an Obama lion than a McCain dragon any day.

NN (contact with the public) is conj US n Moon (27AQ10 in US Sibly chart = people are watching), Sun 7Pis51, "A Girl Blowing a Bugle" (didn't know Hillary could play an instrument), and Mars, now direct but still in his Rx shadow, is in 9th house of Philosophy, Education, and Foreign Enemies...and in orb of his recent conj with Clinton's n Uranus, a very energizing transit when new methods are tried and there's danger in the environment.

Sun has been at Clinton's n Mc this week which is also Obama's n Chiron; and the 2nd cusp of money in the debate chart has Obama's n Neptune upon it. Perhaps instability with money may be a point of attack--squirrelly land deals, or whatever is yet to be revealed about his past financial dealings...friends being indicted, that sort of thing. You know the script for political thespians--we've heard it all before.

Yet perhaps the unmasker will turn into the unmasked!

Asteroid, Apollo, the hero, is conj Mc and US n Sun tonight, which sounds like Obama to me--at least it does to his followers. Golden Apollo, everyone's hero.

Moon 15Sco57 may indicate some betrayal at work relating to the 2nd house of values; money; relationships, and Moon is conj Clinton's n Venus 16Sco51, with her n Chiron nearby (Venus-Chiron = wounded love; love on the sacrificial altar, etc; plus, money issues for her, as well.)

Saturn has been visiting Obama's n Pluto of late, seemingly giving his power potential more structure rather than limiting it, and in 10th house of the 'debate' chart is Obama's n Mercury and Sun in shiny and entertaining Leo.

And with his n Mars 22Vir25 conj US n Neptune, it's doubtful the American public sees his actions very clearly (or ever will.) Of course, this also describes Obama's ability to activate (Mars) America's ideals (Neptune) for work and service (Virgo.)

Hillary's n Sun 2Sco48 is in the debate chart's 1st house, therefore rising a few minutes into the session.

Perhaps tonight with chart-ruler lady Venus applying to a sesquisquare with Mars, and trining the ASC (the debate itself), yet inconjuncting Mc (goals; aspirations) the unmasking will show who they both really are. New vs Old, status quo vs the avant garde--a perfect match for the Saturn-Uranus opposition which the world will be enduring in time for November elections.

But tonight staid Saturn and progressive Uranus are in an obsessive-compulsive quindecile dance (165 degr):

driven toward breaking old and outdated concepts through the use of innovative ideas; may break the rules through defiance of law and order; may disrupt governing systems; benefit comes bwo making societal changes for the betterment of mankind (Reeves, The Quindecile. )

'The betterment of mankind' would be good about now, si?

Well, there is a high-flying Kite formation at 9:00 pm if you're willing to count MC as the 'tail'--which counts US n Sun (and Bush's n Sun) with moneybags Jupiter 15Cap05 at Ic. Moon and progressive Uranus make up the rest of the Kite pattern, so we have these pictures...

Moon-Uranus = Jupiter: large plans to put self forward; sudden success;

Moon-Uranus = Mc: much excitement about ambition; sudden changes of plans; potential gains.

Moon-Uranus = US/Bush n Sun: anxiety about accomplishment; sense of free will; sudden attachments.

There is also a T-square of sorts, Jupiter-Mc = ASC: pleasant contact with others who support one's personal success.

With testy Mars still wandering out-of-bounds (and not cooperating with the other actors) and the Cleveland debate's Sun-Moon phase being Disseminating, information dispersal will be the order of the evening.

Whether political points are scored between candidates is another matter, but I'm fairly certain the public will be hearing a message or two from on high.

The *Images for Integration of tonight's Sun-Moon blend may be of note--it's an intuitive Water-Water combination: Sun Pis-Moon Sco...

Longfellow's poem, The Secret of the Sea...Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath.

Secrets revealed and wrath exposed? Rrrraowrrr, it should be an interesting squabble.

And now here's an apt quote from John Steinbeck who shares the Sun Pis-Moon Sco combo natally:

It is the nature of a man as he grows protest against change, particularly change for the better.

And from the master futurist:

"Actions are held to be good or bad, not on their own merits, but according to who does them. There is almost no kind of outrage, torture, imprisonment without trial, assassination, and bombing of civilians, which does not change its moral color when it is committed by our side. The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, he has remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them."

The Shock Doctrine by Naomi Klein

Please say you've read Naomi Klein's article, The Shock Doctrine in The Guardian which is an excerpt from her book.

There's a health crisis coming and an economic crisis on the way. President All-the-Way-to-Baghdad still has adolescent problems you may read about here if you wish.

The "shock" in The Shock Doctrine refers to the electromagnetic planet, Uranus, the only planet named after a place...the sky, where the lightening happens.

Neptune in mutual reception with Uranus as they are these days--now Neptune has the veils of illusion and deception to throw over the matter. It's propaganda and undercover work when you get Uranus and Neptune energies blended as best you undersea lightening!

Well, what if Orwell is right?

Orwell and the WTC Attack 9.11.01

There are many things to say about this comparison between George Orwell's natal chart and the attack/s of 9/11/01, NYC. (Here using Orwell's generally-accepted birth time of 11:30 am LMT which has a decent B rating--and which gives Virgo Rising, esp considering his health problems and fairly early death.)

Here are some highlights...or should I say, lowlights?

9/11/01>>With Mercury (air travel) rising 14Lib17 (conj US natal Saturn--authority) on that obscene day, we see it near Orwell's ("GO") North Node (NN), which points to destiny or to the path one is on. (GO's Mars is nearby, also in his 1st house.)

And it's difficult to miss the pile-up in GO's 10th house--top o'the chart, with 9/11 Moon (publicity; the public) near his Mc, and an even closer aspect between 9/11 NN to GO's Neptune, a planet connected with receptivity and impressionability. (His Neptune in Cancer = spiritual perception; sensitivity; a deeply feeling nature.)

Plus, 9/11 NN is very near conjunction with GO's 'Sun conj Moon'--his natal Moon is just before New Moon, the Balsamic phase mentioned earlier today...the prophet.

In 9th house, we see GO's Mercury/Pluto--the combo of these two = the art of persuasion; suggestion; good powers of observation; sharp criticism; wielding influence through speaking or writing. The other George--Bush--has these two planets conjunct in his 1st house, so there ya go. And tr Saturn is about to stomp upon them,
Merc/Plu = Sat: exposure to bitter attacks; irritability; skepticism; quarrels; separation.) And so, with GO's chart and 9/11, and with Bush 2006, we see the same picture!

Before now, you've noticed that 9/11 Venus, triggering the "King of Terror" Eclipse degree of 8/11/99, is conjunct GO's Venus, 1 degree+ orb. Using "18Leo" as the 1999 Eclipse degree:

"18Leo:>>"A chemist conducts an experiment for his students." ALCHEMY.

Keynote: In inquiring into the hidden process of nature, the human mind experiences the thrill of discovery. (DR)

The MEJ* version gives this neg/shadow side interpretation: unintelligent dependence on supposition or on the rules of the book.

Or, if you prefer "19Leo", the neg/shadow side: thoughtless self-indulgence and contempt for the general welfare. (That last sounds more'n'more familiar as the misguided Bush ship careens on, doesn't it?)

Now for one more thing--at the foundation of the chart/s, we see that on 9/11/01, transiting Chiron, the Wound and Blindspot, is sitting upon GO's Uranus at 23Sag, and you know, lone reader, about the Chiron-Uranus combo from a previous post.

Rudhyar's version of "23Sag">> "A group of immigrants as they fulfill the requirements of entrance into a new country."

Keynote: Consciously accepting the ways of a new stage of experience, in readiness for the opportunities it will present. (Yep.)

This describes an inevitable ordeal--a threshold...and everything that will follow depends largely on how it is crossed, and on the spirit in which we meet unfamiliar and perhaps shocking experiences. We find ourselves in a period of TRANSITION. We have to imitate, yet retain our inner integrity.

MEJ's version>>"23Sag"...neg: a surrender of the real in a pursuit of the false.

Given the Chiron-Uranus Types we now have infesting the US government and their lack of respect for borders, this comes as no surprise to me.

How about you? Surprised?
