so he got voted out, finally. it was fun while it lasted. by the way, transiting pluto is conjunct his natal mercury as well. looks like he and rush are having a great run regarding their communication style. blagojevich also has transiting pluto trine natal pluto and square natal mars. the transiting south node is also conjunct his natal uranus. from the chart i’m looking at: http://politicalastrologyblog.com/2009/01/12/rod-blagojevich-a-tale-of-saturn-and-uranus/ the time of birth is unknown but if that pisces moon is near 20ish degrees, he’s got uranus wreaking havoc on it, plus his natal venus in scorpio.
not very good for political popularity but great for media coverage. i personally am not tired of hearing his name in the news. this is the kind of politic that interests me- the real deal. i wanna know all the scandals of the people we put into power. we may need to rethink this democratic process- or at least use the new social media tools for investigation and reporting. it’s getting harder to hide…
ok, ok, ok so wall streeters got $18.4 billion in bonuses. maybe that’s what happens when we give power to a small section of the population and then let them do whatever they want because we have no concept of managing stocks, finances, trade, etc. for ourselves.
pluto in capricorn? redefining responsibility for finances? death of corporate responsibility? other ideas?
yea, so all this tough talk about obama failing made me wonder about mr. limbaugh’s natal chart. it turns out transiting pluto is conjunct his mercury. he also has natal opposition of mercury and uranus so he’s just going all out and saying whatever shocking (uranus), taboo (pluto) thing he can say to get listener and media attention- i actually think it’s kinda cool.
the hell with politically correct, we do need some controversial talk every now and then to keep us on our toes. he is also going through a uranus transit to his natal north node/moon conjunction- he’s not holding back any emotions; what a great way to free yourself from emotional burdens and stress. he’s got a radio show and a following waiting to hear whatever outrageousness he’s willing to deliver. now, i’m not applauding the man, but i gotta give some kudos for his public expression.
i was just watching book tv on c-span and saw a rerun of a g gordon libby radio show tapng with reb bradley, author of his new book “born liberal, raised right.” http://www.pressmediawire.com/article.cfm?articleID=19924
my initial bias towards “conservatism” was quickly replaced by a respect for saturnian values such as hard work, delayed gratification, self-control, and responsibility. then i realized that i may not be “liberal” or “conservative” but instead, “saturnian.” i have saturn occidental, plus it sits conjunct between my moon and sun, squaring neptune. i grew up with saturn and as much as i hated it at times, it taught me valuable lessons that i now recognize and appreciate because so many people i come into contact with do not possess or even comprehend saturnian qualities. very interesting.
oh, and i must mention that my first saturn return just occurred in late-october.

hey, has anyone ever wondered about the phenomenon of getting a random song into your head without hearing it anywhere and wonder if you are tuned in to someone else who is listening to that song and it somehow got transmitted to your mind?
ok, so i can openly admit to being narcissistic- yeah, i think i’m special; sue me. i am very aware that it’s just me being a brat with a huge ego but i know that i’m really not that great…only sometimes
i have an unaspected jupiter in leo conjunct the ic, which gives me an innate sense of self-confidence. i have faith, to put it plainly. i believe in myself and in positive outcomes. i have a tremendous ability to hope for the best and usually, the best is what i experience.
i also have the sun conjunct mercury conjunct venus, and pluto in the 5th house of the ego- i have a gift for self-expression and am positively reinforced when i express myself.
so, what keeps me grounded? well, for one, i am a virgo- no matter what, i will always know that i can’t be perfect no matter how hard i try. i have the sun and moon in virgo conjunct saturn. boo! saturn has always been the one to smack me in he face and say, “you are not special, work harder!” plus, good old neptune forms a square to my moon/saturn conjunction- dreams vs. reality is a rough struggle which keeps me down-to-earth but in the end, jupiter wins out; i always have hope.
more narcissistic confessions to come…anybody else?
at the moment, transiting pluto is squaring my mercury and may as well be squaring venus too, as they are conjunct within 1 degree. all i have to say is that one of my new years resolutions is to finally tell someone, “go fuck yourself!” i’ve never said that to anyone before and it’s about time.
i haven’t been able to sleep through the night because my mind won’t shut off- i keep thinking about work and how i could be doing or learning more. i did enroll in a drawing class, so at least i’ll be channeling some of this energy into an artistic endeavor (natal mercury in the 5th).
pluto is a bastard, of course, ruling my 6th house of service, and currently transiting my 7th. i’ve also been forcing myself to get into the gym- which doesn’t do much to help me sleep (like i had thought) but will hopefully give me the obsessive drive to thrim down my excess body weight. i’m turning 30 near the end of this year and i can’t afford to start another decade of life with excess woman weight. as a matter of fact, i’m going outside to walk/run some of this shit off…
so my monday morning started off with a healthy bit of road rage- there’s nothing like a nice cut-you-off-because-i-can-in-my-big-suv (my dad) followed by a fuck-you-i’m-going-to-fight-a-losing-battle-in-my-poo-poo-car (the cut-off guy). meanwhile, i’m freaking out in the passenger seat at 6:30 in the morning. the good news? i didn’t need a stupid cup of coffee to wake me up today.
this retrograde is traveling through my 9th house and will dip back into the 8th. i’m still trying to finalize a second class for this semester and my dad is waiting to hear back from the bank about his REfinance. plus, a friend of mine is eager to REvisit a psychic we saw last january and i’m happy to go again. funny thing is, when we went last year, it was on the day of a mercury/neptune conjunction. i wonder if he planned our readings for that particular planetary configuration?
i need to REconsider my life priorities: i want a great body, great job, great guy, great computer OR great body, great guy, great job, great computer OR great body, great computer, great internet business…hehe. it looks like great body is on the top and i intend to sweat it into being. REcreation!!!
