Inauguration 2013: Sun AQ-Moon Gemini
Re: President Barack Obama’s second Inauguration, a private Oath of Office to be taken on Sunday January 20, 2013 and the public Oath taken on Monday January 21, 2013 (since January 20th falls on a Sunday.)
On my Political Astrology blog, Stars Over Washington, you’ll find on display astro-notes with both Inauguration 2013 horoscopes set for the Capitol Building Washington DC (where else?)
For my wonderful WordPress blog, I have a few astro-notes concerning both days because the president’s private Oath will be sworn under the rays of Sun Aquarius-Moon Taurus (Air-Earth = practical idealism) but there’s a different mood on Monday with Sun AQ-Moon Gemini (Air-Air = natural communicator.) Let’s consider both blends if you’re willing!
Now you know that in Mundane Astrology, Sun = the leader, or, the president, and Moon = the people, or, the public. Plus, Sun represents the conscious mind, Moon the unconscious; Sun = male, Moon = female. It’s all about energy and with Sun-Moon blends, it’s the combination of energies that tells more than simply Sun or Moon signs can divulge on their own.
Jan 20, 2013 noon est, when the previous presidential term officially ends and the new administration begins:
Sun AQ-Moon Tau is a level-headed, capable, friendly, ambitious, and entrepreneurial combination that harmoniously unites the emotional nature with intellectual power. Conflicts may result from love of home and comfort vying against future-oriented insights. It’s a good blend for a leader for it inspires confidence in others through reliability and an ability to debate issues rationally.
Two famous folk who share Sun AQ-Moon Tau natally are included with a quote from each:
“A hungry man is not a free man.” –Adlai E. Stevenson
“Only by transcending the everyday, by seeing human life in larger terms, can the individual escape the slow strangulation of permanent errors.” –E.G. Price
The blend’s “Image for Integration” given by Charles & Suzi Harvey in their book Sun Sign-Moon Sign is more than a little revealing of the direction society is being sent and of the president who will continue to man the helm for four more years, much to the dismay of his political opponents:
“The resident caretaker of a ‘New Age’ community sips his Beaujolais as he systematically does the year’s accounts.”
Monday January 21, 2013 Sun AQ-Moon Gem changes to a lighter tone with the public mood turned excitably Geminian. This breezy blend is progressive unlike a Taurean flavored Moon with Taurus being ‘the preserver’; a strong social conscience is indicated along with wit and a philosophical bent though the combo’s flexibility mixes with a stubborn streak provided by the Fixed (rigid) energy of Aquarius.
Emotionally naive, this blend denotes detachment which is shown on one level by a carefree nonchalance. Being drawn to ‘New Age’ thinking tallies with yesterday’s Aquarian-Taurean energies for changing the world seems a distinct possibility; communicating radical ideas goes along with journalistic interests, plus, public relations is a natural field of endeavor along with the high tech devices that seem so necessary in today’s social networking and mobile blogging world.
The innate charm, friendliness, and sociability of Monday’s blend should enhance our nation’s inaugural celebrations, balls, and parties perfectly!
Sun AQ-Moon Gem is shared natally by social activist Saul Alinsky (!), comedian Jack Benny, “wise man”
Elihu Root, and Thomas Paine who helpfully informed us that, “The sublime and the ridiculous are often so nearly related, that it is difficult to class them separately.”
(Especially on Capitol Hill these days though ‘the sublime’ too often goes missing entirely–jc.)
There are two “Images for Integration” for Sun AQ-Moon Gem which apply quite well to Inauguration 2013 and the second one amazes me with its aptness to the president and his Inaugural Address, I think. See if you agree:
“A child in a balloon drifts over the city reporting back by portable phone on all below…A white blackbird charms the garden with its song.” (Harveys.)
Happy Inauguration Day, Everyone!
