Well, I had a few thoughts to utter concerning this article about lack of trust in the GOP but a massive storm system is arriving Now and I must close before my pc is closed disruptively by Uranian lightening bolts.
It’s definitely a rainy day in Georgia, Y’all.
There are three a-chillin’ in this photograph of today’s ‘Beer Summit’, as Joan Walsh calls the casual chic ‘sit down to have a beer’ gala held at the White House Thursday between a president, a cop, and a professor.
Now I wonder what my Astrology friends will call these particular archetypal actors on the planetary level as the trio kicks it on the world stage…?
My guesses are as follows:
A president = Sun
A cop = Mars
A professor = Jupiter
Are we agreed? If so, then it’s harmony all around!
In Astrology this is precisely the trio of energies we must muster toward cooperative mode if we want to get anything done!
And a “Beer Summit”?
Escapist Neptune, naturally, doin’ that groovy urge-to-merge Neptunian thing that Neptune does as boundaries melt away…and even suds belong in bubbly Neptune’s realm.
Update after midnight: I almost forgot that VP Joe Biden was elbow-bending in the Rose Garden photo, too. As an elder statesman, he’d have to be signified by Saturn, with the Rose the flower of Venus, right?
Update 7.31.09: just thought the Sun Leo-Moon Sag blend in force from 5:00 pm est yesterday has an interesting word picture that describes the event…
Sun Leo-Moon Sag: ‘The knight in shining armor wins a game of poker and the drinks are on the house.’ !!
(‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’, Chas & Suzi Harvey.)
Just a brief heads-up that the ‘King of Alarm’ Eclipse page in this blog’s sidebar column has been updated today with a link to a new posting on the Codex Alimentarius regulations which are said to be slated for implementation in the US “by Dec 31, 2009″ – the day a Lunar Eclipse completes the year 2009 and ushers in 2010.
Seems we’ll soon be chowin’ down on some scrumptious genetically-modified foods laced with plenty of chemical toxins, if Congress, the UN, and the WHO have their wishes fulfilled.
And if this plan goes forward, you know that American Corporatism wins again.
Actually I was watching The Late Show with David Letterman the other night when Grey’s Anatomy actress Katherine Heigl made her remarks about the grueling 17-hour day she had to suffer filming the show.
For now that there’s a plethora of her own creations: Katherine Heigl haters, adorning the Web, her ungrateful complaints are now explained to me more fully in context and in the glaring light of We Should All Be So Employed!
Guess what They Say is so: troubles are often self-created.
But They Also Say: any publicity is good publicity.
That’s right after They Say: loose lips sink ships.
Besides: who absconded with the missing ‘e’ in ‘Heigl’?
America’s former consumer-protector-in-chief, Ralph Nader, is speaking out on President Obama’s healthcare reform initiative and its opponents.
As Mr. Nader and others have pointed out, the Washington dogs in this fight all have gold-plated healthcare plans so don’t fret a moment for them – if their legislation messes up rather than improves our ailing healthcare system through their politically based tinkerings, they’ll still come out top of the heap.
Actually I’m not certain how often expert astrologer Jessica Murray ‘looks at’ television but she has some intriguing thoughts on the medium, the industry, and the president’s “stupidly” remark about Professor Gates’ arrest last week on her MotherSky blog.
2009′s Super Conjunction appears as well so you should definitely check out Ms. Murray’s article!
A fresh look has been taken of the Nov 22, 1963 JFK assassination with particular attention paid to the day’s Sun in Scorpio–Moon in Aquarius, and including notes on the 1 North Pre-Natal Eclipse Series during which the heinous event was perpetrated.
Check it out, if you’re interested.
Update Oct 30, 2009: here’s a 1963 Truman quote written in a letter to WaPo soon after the JFK assassination. I’m not certain I believe Truman here since, as many have said before me: nothing that happens in Politics is an accident – if it happens you can be sure it was meant to happen. “Never had any thought”, Harry? Come on!
And ‘nothing is an accident in Politics’ includes the current ‘leak’ from a panel aide’s computer of Ethics Committee documents on who is Congress is being investigated for possible violations!
Well, here’s Harry come back to call:
“For some time I have been disturbed by the way the CIA has been diverted from its original assignment. It has become an operational and at times a policy-making arm of the government….I never had any thought that when I set up the CIA that it would be injected into peacetime cloak and dagger operations.”
-President Harry Truman, in a letter to the Washington Post, one month after the JFK assassination, December 21, 1963
Good news – it finally occurred to me to add in this blog’s sidebar an Archives Search feature by month.
The monthly Archives list is already there – what’s new is a Search box for those who prefer to type before they click. It probably isn’t needed here but I thought I’d try it out, see how it handles.
Scroll down near the end of the sidebar column on your left and test drive it if you like!
Also added just now: my daughter’s Etsy Shop feed ~Spring Tree Road~ which you’ll find directly under the Flickr photo bar.
Maya has become an inspired spinner and dyer of yarns, Merino and otherwise, so check out her shop for gifts for the inspired knitter in your life…which may be You!
One thing I like a bunch about her Etsy Shop listings (besides Maya’s scrumptious photos of the beautifully colored skeins to which she’s given lovely names like: Asian Pear) is that each listing suggests the needle sizes that work best for the weight and style of yarn, plus washing instructions are given for each skein of fibers.
Now how easy is that?
