A dual wheel display of the horoscopes of the beginning and ending of the Feb 4 – 6, 2010 Tea Party Convention, Nashville, TN, is now published if you’d care for a peek.
One thing I neglected to add to the post which will fit nicely here: the Sun/Moon combination through the three days. Whenever there’s an event that plays out over more than one day, it can be informative to take note of the various combinations of Sun and Moon.
Beginning at sunrise on Feb 4, 2010, Moon is in the late degrees of Libra (27:41) with Sun 15AQ36. No, it’s not quite Sarah Palin’s birthday – that’s February 11 (1964.)
Just before midnight on Feb 6, Moon reaches 3Sag06 precisely conjunct transiting Hidalgo 3:06! (Click above link to read my notes on Hidalgo and the Moon.)
Therefore, we have 3 Sun/Moon blends to consider for a ‘general atmosphere’ or background picture of Tea Party Convention 2010 by listing their ‘Images for Integration’ which are *word pictures in shorthand of the combined energies:
Sun AQ/Moon Libra (Air-Air = clearheaded, civilized, witty, and elegant) has a highly idealistic side and a humanitarian slant. But even if easy-going, this blend can suddenly get rebellious if its rights or its sympathies are abused or taken advanmtage of.
‘Groups vs Individuality’ is a theme; ideals and theories are plentiful yet practicality may be lacking; social awareness is strong; ideas and systems are presented to promote a brighter outlook.
‘Images for Integration: Anarchists form a committee to end the tyranny of committees…Good friends fall in love and get married.’
The Sun AQ/Moon Lib blend is shared natally by author Boris Pasternak who so famously informed us that:
“As for men in power, they are so anxious to establish the myth of infallibility that they do their utmost to ignore truth.”
Sun AQ/Moon Scorpio (Air-Water = mist, ethereal and seemingly unsubstantial; very creative; thoughts and feelings can jumble together; a seemingly detached viewpoint may be tinged with personal bias; a tendency toward self-dramatization is possible.
Sun AQ/Moon Sco is a charismatic combo full of ambition, pride, and a strong will. A reformer who believes in self-reliance, this blend can be fiercely principled and dogmatic, and may have a hypnotic influence upon others; ruthlessness, manipulation, self-importance, and egotism may be prominent as well.
‘Images for Integration: A scientist dissects a scorpion with great tenderness and absolute precision…A researcher presents his findings to colleagues at a ‘Science for Humanity’ Conference (!)…Jules Verne’s “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.” ‘
Natally, Sun AQ/Moon Sco belongs to Henry Brook Adams who long ago helpfully informed us that:
“Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organisation of hatreds.”
Tea Party, y’all! Organise those biased hatreds! (I merely jest. Don’t.)
And now for the last of the 3 Sun/Moon blends…perhaps the atmosphere will clear a little?
Sun AQ/Moon Sag (Air-Fire = a ‘live wire’ – remind you of anyone on the speakers’ list? – a potential visionary that needs a more practical focus to succeed; mentally active, gregarious, loves new risks, but can turn moralistic and ‘preachy’ when on a ‘high horse’.)
The AQ/Sag blend indicates an adventurous and independent spirit with social concerns, an urge for expansion, verbosity, and a tactless confidence; this is a blend with natural leadership qualities, a teacher who is admired by timid folk everywhere; there’s a forthrightness here which attracts many admirers, and a genuine love for wide open spaces.
A caution with Sun AQ/Moon Sag is a tendency to rationalize and make sweeping generalizations; overdoing a preaching manner when advancing pet causes; impatience for life’s mundane details can cause an off-putting bluntness or edge to the personality, and this blend may be difficult emotionally to bring down to earth.
‘Images for Integration: “Alice in Wonderland”…Indiana Jones founds a new university in the heart of the jungle…A distinguished sociology professor throws a fancy-dress party for her best friends.”
This blend is shared natally by poet Robert Burns who penned:
“Liberty in every blow!
Let us do or die!”
And yet, I shall not leave you without the next Sun AQ/Moon Cap blend’s ‘Images for Integration’ because I thought you might be curious about the immediate ‘mood’ or influence in the hours just after the Tea Party Convention un-convenes:
‘A revolutionary is elected president…An alien civilization comes to Earth to rescue man from imminent destruction.’
‘President’? Not going there, here. Can’t. Because it’s daft, impractical, and wacky.
So politically speaking, when it comes to man’s ‘imminent destruction’ I hold ALL Washington politicians at fault or collusive at the very least, no matter the patriotic stripe they wear when promoting pet causes of the moment in order to advance an ideology, vault their careers into the stratosphere, line their pockets, and improve their social standing.
