Perhaps you’ve heard of what promises to be a lovely cosmic display at dawn on Tuesday November 27, 2012 as Venus and Saturn rendevous in the heavens.
Plus, click for info on the tango of Venus-Saturn-Sun occurring on December 21, 2012 that ties in with the often-touted, much-heralded Winter Solstice 2012 which times a very rare galactic alignment.
Naturally, I had to check a Tropical horoscope to find the degree that Venus and Saturn meet at dawn on November 27th so that we may consider its *Sabian Symbol (word picture) for a few evolutionary details. Setting the chart for the White House (should old habits be forgot?), Venus clocks in at 6 Scorpio 44 at dawn while slower Saturn has reached 6Sco14 in the Zodiac.
Actually their astrological conjunction will be exact on November 26, 2012 at 8:19 pm est @ 6Sco11:07 during the Mercury Station Direct @ 18Sco10:13 which will occur 2 hours 31 minutes prior to the Venus-Saturn conjunction. As you know, ‘voting’ Mercury turned Rx on Election Day 2012 and we’ve seen several states with contested outcomes and recounts which should be completely settled very soon with Mercury moving forward.
Lovely Venus and Old Man Saturn
Now you either know or can easily find details of what a Venus-Saturn pairing means astrologically but since I tend to focus on Political Astrology, I’ll add here what expert astrologer Michael Munkasey says about the duo’s combined energies in Politics and Business according to the Hegelian Dialectic; my feeling is that, as with midpoint pictures, any, all, or none may apply at various times:
“Thesis: Restrictions on wealth or income; law enforcement avoiding difficult or cumbersome issues; changes forced on enterprise by new social, artistic, or musical values; building the value of the enterprise.
Antithesis: Restrictions on the way society is able to function; elderly people in the enterprise who have artistic tendencies; a law enforcement bureau which derives pleasure from restricting the movement of people.”

Hmmm…let’s not get onto the level of the “fiscal cliff” or tax cuts expiring debate in Washington DC in this brief post but the above potential does makes me wonder if the Venus-Saturn rendevous has anything to do with current workers’ strikes in the US and the upper management that will most probably clamp down on them.
Ex: protests continue with Wal-Mart workers intent on striking on Black Friday, the beginning of the Christmas shopping season in the US.
*Venus-Saturn’s ’7 Scorpio’ = “Deep Sea Divers”; keyword: INVOLVEMENT. Themes include “a challenge to self-refinement” and “Self-fulfillment (is) through an ever-increasing interest in day-by-day problems.”
Marc Edmund Jones, in his book The Sabian Symbols in Astrology adds the negative expression of ’7 Scorpio’ as: “fundamentally unsocial instincts and a resort to wholly absurd escapism.”
Seems to me our ‘survival of the fittest’ society already has way too many of those of a Social Darwinian mindset with ‘fundamentally unsocial instincts” toward their fellow man!
So, on that rather grumpious note, I’ll close with a Happy Thanksgiving to any and all in the US! And yes, let’s remember our displaced Hurricane Sandy victims by contributing if and all we can.
Now this is handy:

Thanks to the excellent sleuthing capabilities of astrologer John Townley, a broader picture emerges concerning the ‘buyers’ remorse’ effect so prevalent from this and previously seen midterm election results.
Allow John to explain about our early November elections having Venus retrograde, a clear signature of ‘buyers’ remorse’!
Prevailing wisdom is to Never Buy Anything Important when Venus is Rx – and that apparently goes for politicians. Thing is, Venus was Rx during the 2010 Nov midterms – so which newly-electeds will we wish we could return (Rx) as defective?

Stars Over Washington; Venus will be Direct by then but still moving through Scorpio and nearly at the Eagle Point (15 Sco.)
NPR has just reported that the Reagan Building in Washington DC is infested with bedbugs which are being treated this weekend as I type.
Now that’s what I’ve been grousing about on Stars Over Washington for the last five years with my, “astrological comments on America, on Washington DC, and on the politicians who infest them.”
Have the bedbugs come home to roost for Mr. Reagan and the GOP? Perhaps so, but the itchy critters shouldn’t give the Dems a free pass!
Well, a new post is just published on SO’W which concerns the October 8, 2010 Venus Rx station and Venus Transits 2004/2012 along with an interesting video interview with Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FL) from the Dylan Ratigan Show, if you’re up for it.
The post does involve Political Astrology, yes, but is written in plain English, my first language.
National Georgraphic Magazine attempts to debunk the Dec 21, 2012 end-of-world scenarios many folks are fearing by discussing the 2012 end of the world myths along with some basic Mayan Calendar info you may wish to review.
It all goes back to Venus…
