If you'll just read my last several posts, you'll know why I've been silent over the past several weeks. I said it back in the winter and early spring: The whole Democratic thing would be decided the first week in May. And it was. The direct motion of Saturn moved that planet away from Hillary Clinton's Midheaven and approached culmination for Barack Obama. All that means is that Hillary's trip now is service not power, and Barack is about to experience public nudity in the heaviest political sense.
If you're a Barack Obama supporter, then you should be rejoicing over the fact that long-delayed justice has at last been served. Not only is this a victory over a dangerous, almost totalitarian regime which, over the past eight years, has encroached on the human liberties upon which this great nation was founded, but a tremendous battle has also been won for the entire African-American population. More than two hundred years of enslavement and oppression may have finally come to an end. And the biggest perk for Obama fans is the fact that we have been delivered from the Machiavellian malignancy that is the earmark of Hillary Clinton, her Lothario hubby and all her mischievous henchman, more amoral than the noblemen who screwed Rigoletto.
If, on the other hand, you believe that the most capable and competent individual (Hillary) equipped to deal with a national and global crisis that may lie right around the next curve has just been unceremoniously and unjustly defeated, then you feel crushed to have witnessed a public assassination more heinous than any DVD we could see of Islamic extremist punishment of women in the Middle East, perpetrated by media-crazed fanatics like Keith Olbermann and an entire misogynistic Cabal of Dirty Ole Boys who have fed the American people a big dose of Kool-Aid in the name of an empty snake oil salesman named Barack Obama -- who is sure to lead all us lemmings right into the drink.
Astrologically speaking, HRC's Mars Saturn Pluto is directly overhead in her solar chart, and that means she can never escape from dominant, controlling narcissistic men. Try though she will, she still ends up to be a Scorpio bottom to a Leo top. As for BHO, he won't turn out at all to be the solo heroic fireman posing for the photo op in front of a burning building holding a little baby he just saved single-handed. Not with Chiron and Neptune on his South Node in the solar seventh house. He's a little boy himself who can't make a major move without some woman standing behind him whispering directions. Wherever you sit in this campaign, the whole thing makes me believe in what we could call the astrological karma of relationships.
So who's gonna win?
What a joke that is. The national election of 2008 will take place with Pluto at the end of Sagittarius. A couple of weeks later Pluto will move back into Capricorn for the next fifteen years. If you happen to be a hillaphobic Barackite, don't get stars in your eyes and start hyper-ventilating because your Liberator has come at last. And even if you're an Obamannoyed Hillarino, don't think that women have made history-yet.
Pluto in Sagittarius represents hope and dreams. And that's great. Where would this country be without the dreams of the early explorers? (Forget for a moment what happened to the Native Americans.) It's just that Pluto in Capricorn represents waking reality after the snooze button fails to work. Change is coming, yes, but not tomorrow or next week. Pluto in Capricorn represents the squeeze of power exercised by a tight-fisted and towering conservative aristocracy that may indeed eventually be toppled, but one that is not going down without a fight.
Forgive me if I sound like the witch at the christening, but the next fifteen years in America will indeed bring a transformation in the political climate and structure that hasn't been seen since Paul Revere decided to mount his horse instead of Betsy Ross.
Prediction: Between the fall of 2010 and the spring of 2011, this revolutionary confrontation between individual liberty and strict control will let itself be seen everywhere.
More to come.
