Should Hillary Run?

Okay, I know the frenzy about who should be the new president two seconds after the current one is inaugurated is silly but it did get me thinking about Hillary Clinton’s chart. We don’t know what time she was born and for my purposes today that is not all that important. What is so interesting to me about her chart is her nodal axis. You know that as a karmic astrologer I am a freak about the north and south nodes. The north nodes is where we are going toward in this lifetime – and the south node is where

Inauguration Day!

Okay, Mr. President you have the transiting ascendant in the third house in Taurus – I am expecting one kick-butt inaugural address! You can do it – we know you can so I am looking for a bit more zing than your last one. Frankly, you should deliver the speech you gave on election night when the results came in. That was an “Obama speech.” He will certainly have our heart in it – with Neptune in Pisces transiting his first house his emotions are close to the surface. I have heard that the Newtown massacre of babies has more deeply affected

“End of the World” Chart

Oh come on you knew I was going to have to do it. Apparently the Mayans predicted the end of the world at 4:12 AM MST December 21, 2012. Please don’t ask me how they knew about time zones…but I guess if you can predict the end of the world, time zones are a snap. We don’t have much time to quibble about such details now do we. Anyway, this is a pretty drab chart.  I mean you would think the end of the world would be loaded with 8th house planets – that house being the house of death,

Is Barack the Reincarnation of Lincoln

I saw this picture on Facebook the other day and it really struck me and reminded me of my long held theory that President Obama is the reincarnation of President Lincoln. I wrote this in 2008 – and then updated when we got Pres. Obama’s exact birth time. In honor of the re-election and that picture I am reprinting it. What do you think? Is Barack the Reincarnation of Lincoln Unfinished Business Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) is in danger of facing her political Armageddon in Texas and Ohio on March 4. If Buckeye and Lone Star voters send her on

I am still amazed at this election.

Now that I am somewhat caught up on my sleep I am even more amazed how much we owe Pluto. You can see in my last pre-election post how nervous I was about Mercury going retrograde on Election Day. I knew we wouldn’t have an exact repeat of 2000 but I knew suppression of voters would screw up the election. Now look at Florida – again!  Had Pluto in Capricorn not brought out the women, the African Americans, the Latinos furious at these creepy old white men trying to stop the vote and turn back the clock we would all

A Final Word on Retrograded Mercury on Election Day

OK yes, Mercury is going to go retrograde (it will appear to go backwards in the sky) around 6 P Eastern on election night. AND the last time Mercury went retrograde – in fact the only time it went retrograde on a US election day was in 2000. (The one other time it was already in retrograde was in 1960.) We all have nightmares of a repeat of 2000 but really circumstances don’t repeat exactly.In addition, this year  Mercury will be in “mutual reception” with Jupiter. That means that Jupiter is in Mercury’s ruler Gemini and Mercury is Sagittarius, Jupiter’s

Sandy is NOT the Election Day Mercury Retrograde

OK I have been getting questions this weekend about Sandy being the result of Mercury going retrograde on Election Day. In a word, nope. First, Mercury isn’t “stormy”. Storms from the sea are a Neptune thing – remember his name was Poseidon under the Greeks? Right now Neptune has just slide into Pisces, the sign it rules, and is retrograded, so there is a lot of funky negative power churning there.  Also, Mercury is so small and fast moving that, unlike the bigger guys, his energy is not felt early so it is not the rumblings of him soon to
