(Astrology Explored) Mitt Romney stated to supporters that Obama won the election because he gave “extraordinary” gifts to portions of the electorate.
Romney: “What the president’s campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote, and that strategy worked.”
Romney’s campaign manager, Matt Rhoades, listed a few specifics: “Whether it was free contraceptives for 18 to 29 year-old women, DREAM Act waivers, student loan interest rate cuts for college students, and other initiatives geared toward energizing their coalition. They succeeded.”
Romney: ” It’s a proven political strategy, which is give a bunch of money to a group and, guess what, they’ll vote for you. … Immigration we can solve, but the giving away free stuff is a hard thing to compete with.
(Astrology Explored) Within two days of their scheduled wedding, Jerramy Steven’s birthday and the Solar Eclipse, the 3 month old relationship between football tight end Jerramy Stevens and soccer goalie Hope Solo blew up. And if Hope is smart, this is a lucky break for her.
Jerramy Stevens has a long list of run ins with other people as well as authority. Charged with assault and substance abuse at various times in his life, he seems to skate by and not effect any changes in his behavior. As usual with Jerramy Steven’s indiscretions, the details on this incident are sketchy. The judge dismissed the charges citing insufficient evidence. How this incident follows his personal script involving violence and substance abuse.
. . . officers contacted several people in the home who appeared intoxicated and didn’t cooperate with police, but determined based on information and observations that there was probable cause to arrest Stevens for investigation of fourth-degree assault . . . The officer noted in his affidavit for probable cause for arrest that he arrested Stevens based on his admission that he argued with Hope Solo, the injury to her elbow, signs of a fight in the bedroom where Stevens was found and blood on Stevens’ shirt.
. . .Stevens said he and Solo had been arguing over whether they would live in Washington or Florida after the marriage.
Steven’s chart reflects his troubles with other people. His Sun, Uranus, Mercury and Venus challenges his Moon, Jupiter and North Node. The only ease in his chart is a trine from Jupiter to Chiron and a sextile from Pluto his Sun. Not only is he at odds with other people he is at odds with himself. The only way he can gain a sense of peace is if he controls his environment. The Moon/Jupiter combination in Virgo is unfortunate as well, because he controls by criticizing other people. The Chiron trine only shows how flawed his emotional responses are. Continue reading →
(Astrology Explored) Tomorrow’s new moon eclipse will be in the zodiac sign of Scorpio. As we’ve seen with General Petraeus, there is a Pandora’s box of secrets and abuses of power waiting to get released. How is this going to affect you? The fly in the ointment is Uranus, the planet of the unexpected making a stress aspect (inconjunct) the Sun/Moon combinations threatening to blow up even the most well managed of situations.
Where the eclipse falls in your chart is the area in your life that will be sensitized for the next six months. Look in your chart to see where this eclipse is going to concentrate its energies.
If you don’t know your chart, then maybe its time to have a chat with your local astrologer.
Scorpio in the first, Uranus in the sixth house—While work is lucky for you right now, overdoing the late nights at the office bring on a round of sudden stress related illnesses. If you must work around the clock, at least eat healthy and get enough sleep. Continue reading →
(Astrology Explored) What’s so unusual about a Washington extra-marital affair? Titillating the American public? Embarrassing an innocent spouse? Highlighting the after-hours antics of America’s men in power? Absolutely nothing. Mostly these things are fodder for the political spin cycle of one party trying to get one up on the other.
So what makes David Petraeus, a highly educated and highly decorated general, just formerly the head of the CIA, the latest sound bite in media reports?
It’s not that his mistress threatened another woman who was communicating with the general bringing in an FBI investigation. (Did she really think that if he cheated on his wife of 38 years, he wasn’t cheating on her too?) Continue reading →
(Astrology Explored) Astrology for the week of November 9 to November 15
This the final week before the next Solar Eclipse, a kind of a wrap up of the previous six months. The moon moves from Virgo, to Libra, to Scorpio through this week, touching on material concerns, relationships and money, and other people’s resources. It is this week where we find ourselves depending on others instead of our individual selves, when we recognize that we are stronger as part of group than as a lone wolf. Venus in the relationship sign of Libra, urges you, if you feel you walk alone, to immerse yourself in activities that involving the sharing of yourself. Helping others will benefit in more ways than you know. Even before the holidays begin this is the time for sharing and caring.
Aries—The planet of individuality, Uranus, has recently moved into your sign. Have you noticed that your life is more erratic of late, that things keep cropping up that place more obstacles in your life? Aries is never afraid of a challenge, but this is a horse of different color. The problem is that you are unable or unwilling to recognize that your sense of independence runs counter to what is expected of you. Continue reading →
(Astrology Explored) Burn Notice, Season 6 premiered on Thursday, June 14, 2012, continuing the story arc Michael in his quest to get reinstated into the good graces of “The Company.” What is in store for the burned spy and his crew? Well to answer that we are going to have to clear up the issue of Michael Westen’s birthday.
In my first piece about the fictional “burned” spy Michael Westen, I fiddled around the pieces of trivia dropped through the show and the astrology to see if the birth date of January 7, 1970 as originally posted in Wikipedia was his birth date. I came to the conclusion, that yes it would be and even “rectified” the ascendant to Libra.
Then in an episode called “Past and Future tense”, Michael is seen showing his Florida’s driver license as proof of identity with a Date of Birth shown as January 7, 1967 a full three years earlier. Since then Wikipedia changed its information to reflect this date. To those that don’t “believe” in astrology this isn’t such a big deal, and even eases up the number years of training he took as Special Forces in the Army. But for those of us that look to the stars this is huge deal, especially since it throws off the transits, the positions of the planets, that shows key events in a person’s life. Continue reading →
(Astrology Explored) The East Coast, savaged by Hurricane Sandy, is groaning under the announcement that another bad storm, a Nor’easter bears down on them. Though not as powerful as the hurricane, this storm, possibly heavy with precipitation, winds and storm surge has the potential to undo the recovery efforts of this area. Continue reading →
Some astrologers are predicting a Romney victory in today’s election by virtue of the fact that he was officially nominated when the moon was not Void of Course (VOC) while Obama’s nomination came during a VOC moon.
A Moon Void of Course refers is a moon that makes no further aspects to any other planet before is changes sign. It signifies that nothing will come of the matterContinue reading →
(Astrology Explored) On Sunday at around 11:48 AM a two year old boy tumbled fatally into the exhibit of African Painted dogs at the Pittsburgh zoo. The wild dogs, eleven in number, described by zoo officials as in “pack mentality” were especially aggressive in their attack, with one dog having to be put down before zoo personal could gain access the child.
The unidentified toddler was pronounced dead at the scene.
The ongoing investigation is trying to determine whether the child died from the eleven foot fall into the pit, or from the attack itself. It is reported that the child’s 34 year old mother had placed the child on the wooden railing surrounding the enclosure and almost immediately he lost his balance and fell. Continue reading →
Iardin du monde aupres de cité neufue,
Dans le chemin des montaignes cauees:
Sera saisi & plongé dans la Cuve,
Beuuant par force eaux soulphre enuenimees.
Garden of the world near the new city,
In the path of the hollow mountains:
It will be seized and plunged into the Tub,
Forced to drink waters poisoned by sulfur.
Sandy happend on the full Moon when the Sun and Moon are in opposition. The next lunation is the Solar eclipse on November 13, 2012 on the New Moon. In the New Moon phase the Moon and Sun are conjunct. Mercury is loosely conjunct the Sun though it has moved into a new sign, Sagittarius, which is a fire sign. The fire element is associate with spirit. Is Nostradamus trying to warn of something on this date? Continue reading →
