I Was As Blind As the Pundits

During the deliberations of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, a woman asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation , Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.” Even though I know that Pluto brings up churning turmoil buried deep inside and I have been preaching for five years that it will bring deep change to government. Even though in this blog I wrote about how Pluto brought us President Obama, but we can’t always expect it to work in our favor. Even though, I had my financial advisor move

The First American Presidential Election –

The first election held in America was on January 7. 1789. Only white male property owners voted and there were only 15 electoral votes at stake. There were quite a few candidates hoping to be the first President,  John Adams,  John Jay, Robert Hanson Harrison, John Rutledge, Samuel Huntington, John Milton, James Armstrong, Benjamin Lincoln, Edward Telfair and, of course, George Washington. Moving through the 10th house, which controls government, was Pluto, the change agent and the Sun. Sun energy is always energizing and displays our inner spark so I am sure there was a tremendous felling of excitement that

Election Day

On Election Day 2016, Jupiter will be in conjunction with America’s Saturn which is in the house of government and society, the 10th. Saturn loves the 10th house, it loves tradition and organization. This is one reason our country is still plodding along slowly but surely for the past two hundred plus years. We uphold traditions, the hard to amend Constitution is our supreme law. Jupiter comes in and wants to add a sense of openness, newness to things. Jupiter wants to throw open the doors allow growth. The textbook definition of Jupiter conjunct Saturn is the adding of new

What is in Store for Us in the Third Debate?

The slower moving planets haven’t moved much since the first debate, of course, but we do have some shifts which both candidates should note.  Secretary Clinton has the chance to become more “friendly.” With the Sun conjunct Mercury along with Jupiter in her eleventh house, this is her time build a community. The eleventh house helps us find our tribe – come together with like-minded people and work toward some common goal. Progressed Saturn there will help her layout her plans, show that she can make an America that is opposite what Trump wants. Her mantra should be – 90

Ah, but is Hillary in Her North Node?

I wrote a blog entry about Donald Trump being stuck in his South Node and not moving into his current soul’s desire. Now it is time to look at the Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton. There is some controversy about the time of her birth. (There is no shock there when we are talking about the Clintons.) Some sources say she was born at 802 AM and some people say it was a PM birth. Reports are that Secretary Clinton herself has said that she was born in the evening and some say that she said it was the AM chart.

Tim Kaine

I don’t have Mike Pence’s birth time so I can’t do an accurate chart for him. I do have one for Tim Kaine, however. Before the debate tonight let’s look at the chart of the man who wants to be our next Vice President. Like Secretary Clinton, Senator Kaine has his Sun in the twelfth house. This is normally not a “normal” placement for a politician because it builds in a natural reserve and even secretiveness. Both Democratic candidates prefer the work instead of the “smoozing” aspect of the work. Senator Kaine benefits from Mercury conjuncting his Sun which gives

Donald Trump – Deeply Embedded in His South Node

As a karmic astrologer the Nodal axis of a person’s chart is fascinating – that is the pattern of the North and South Nodes. The South Node tells me about their karmic past – what traits do they bring with them in this lifetime that are memories of past behaviors.  While there is nothing wrong with our past incarnations, of course, our goal in this life should be to grow beyond them, learn new lessons and move forward. Why reincarnate if you are going to do the same things repeatedly? Donald Trump’s South Node, Sagittarius in the fourth house, indicates

September 26 Debates – Hillary

If you are a student of Astrology or this blog, you know that this a political year like no other. With Pluto, the change agent, in Capricorn the sign which rules authority and government, nothing is impossible. Sadly, we are seeing drastic changes to our political structure and none for the best. On September 26, 2016 will see the debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. This is a very important debate as Trump seems to be climbing in the polls and Hillary literally stumbled. For the most part, Hillary has some good signs in her chart for debate time. The

Ted Williams and his “Living” Head

On August 30, 1918, Ted Williams was born. I admit I didn’t know much about his career as a kid. I was a child of the Mantel-Marris era. In fact, the only thing I knew about him for a long time was that he had that some of this children had his body posthumously frozen and stored at an Arizona cryonics facility. There is much controversy surrounding the procedure which pitted his children against one another. Leaving the emotions behind, I had to look at the astrology of a man whose body would have such a bizarre ending…or should I

To the Young Woman on the Far Right and Far Left

Pluto is in Capricorn – change in government can go either way – up or down – backwards or forwards. It is up to us to keep progress in motion. We now have a major party nominee for President of the United States who is a female but this isn’t about one election. It is about the progress and history that has led to this moment. It is a history that I fear you are forgetting and a progress you are failing to push forward. This is a fight spanning from Mary Wollensteincraft and Abigail Adams to we loud- mouthed
