The N. H. vote will test the limits of hope.
Denver Post

Democrats will be taking a perilous "leap of faith" if they choose the little-known Barack Obama for president.
Hillary Rodham Clinton

It's a leap of hope,
repilies Mr. Obama.

They're right, no matter what you call it. And all leaps into the unknown have their dangers. Like crossing a synapse the planet leaves faith-based Sagittarius for Capricorn in a blaze of emotion. Clinton tells the truth. It is a leap. Obama would love to be president but can only hope. And the people are exceptionally aroused. That's why I'm not generally afraid. It's too exciting.
So hope has suddenly leapt to the forefront at 29 degrees Sagittarius. What an exit. What a world.
As Pluto approached the final degree of Sagittarius and Mars turned retrograde in Cancer, the sign that attaches to the past, the establishment and their media ordered the people of America to elect the candidate they chose to ensure the continuation of the status quo. They said it was inevitable and demanded a return to the past. But in the 29th dimension the people said "No!" in a resounding statement of intent, in complete defiance of authority. They chose to go into the unknown. They chose to take the perilous leap. To this invisible land of jeopardy.

And why should they be afraid? They took the leap of faith when they came here.

It must be true. I'm actually considering voting Republican for once in my life: Ron Paul.

What a world, indeed.

LOL!! A Republican!

I do think our minds are being scrambled by the Uranus-Neptune mutual reception.

Look at this way. A lot of our identities have changed due to the blogosphere with new names and all. Stands to reason everything else is becoming abstract.

Joe, yesterday my sculptor (ex-cop republican) buddy and i went out to an opening for another friend of ours. We pretty much never talk politics as there really is little point. He confided that he is going to vote for Hillary as the only rational mind who can lead us out of this mess.

It is dang interesting. This is a first time break from his habit. He is worried enough to not vote his pocketbook but really pay attention to the issues.

My preference was for Dodd who is no longer running.

My thoughts are and have been for a long time that we need to rebuild the peoples houses (congress and senate) i have been around enough years to see what some very effective leaders can do.

Love 'em or not guys like Everett Dirkson and Tipp O'neal had a lot of influence in structuring our government and social system.

Frankly, while i am the perpetual optimist (that sagittarius) i am also a person who believes hard work accomplishes the task. Hope is great- positive affirmations and all...but for me they only set one's intentions. I guess i have always had to work too hard to make my way through life to believe in something less.

It occurs to me that a lot of people initially voted for Bush for the same reasons i'm hearing for Obama- a lot of hope for a break from the past. They loved his smile and his charm. They identified with him, the guy they could have a beer and BBQ with. Someone who understood the "little guy".

I'm too cynical.

I look at the massive amounts of big pharma money poured into the Obama coffers and shiver, his mentor is Joe Lieberman- i quake.

Uranus-Neptune begone.

Tseka, they're all politicians beholden to money. The only way out is through time, work, as you say, and personal evolution and engagement.

The savior Obama is not going to do it, of course. The best thing is to detach from the names and faces and look at the underlying factors. The Bush-Clinton machine has seen its day and Obama is taking care of that right now. He might not get the nomination. And it really doesn't matter.

It will be a long road to health and it will take place in villages, towns, and cities countrywide. That's cause for hope.

Definitely a wise idea to stay clear of the Obama bandwagon. But it's doing a specific job right now.

We're riding the 29 Pluto Sadge wave right now and no one can stop it. Hope is part of it whether we like it or not.

The fear around hope is that it will be snatched away. And guess what? It will be. Capricorn-Virgo is about to settle in which is not about hope, but about nuts and bolts, wrenches and hammers. But hope needs to carry us to the immediate destination. Across the bridge.

Clinton is threatening a terrorist attack if anyone votes for Obama and I think it's time to let go of this and move on.

The best image I got from the last arousing days was of a room somewhere in the midland with voices chirping, chairs scraping, "energy saving lights" blazing, and people voting in one big room together, revealing their faces without much cover-up, perhaps even wearing some polyester slacks, and thinking about society's future.

So to set the record straight, I don't like any of the candidates but I didn't expect anyone to appear yet, if ever in my lifetime. I would respond to a erudite, philosophical wise man as leader, understanding of human needs, but the human race is very very young and afraid and they are still caught in the search for a king. Still afraid of the enemy.
I like what's happening in my state politically. My mayor is not a politician. He's a scientist.

I would, however love to see the end of the Republican-DLC stranglehold. First things first.

The last thing of importance is the personalities. It's hard not to get caught up in it and get nervous and overexcited, doubting one's self, and wondering what the truth is. None of these human creatures hold the answers. You can rest assured that your sense of their weakness-corruptness is correct.

On the other hand, it's up to us to develop any redeeming characteristics we can find in these temporary leaders.

The Tibetans sit with their dead for 44 days in the hut and pray for a safe journey. They repeat over and over:

Do not be afraid

Of course, 44 days with a dead body probably would give some courage. It's for the poor living to go on alone and that's the rub. We really are isolated in life, but all I can say is, accept the temporary intimacy when you find it and:

Do not be afraid

I believe they may have been written by a wizard on a napkin at our favorite cafe a while back. (11/9/07 11:49 AM)

Ahh the olden days....

Cafes, genius, napkins, artists, thinkers, playwrights, poets, singers, dancers, drinkers, and SMOKERS!

I'm getting frightfully nostalgic.

The beaker smokes and brings the world knowledge.

The chimney smokes and brings the people warmth.

The string beans smoke and bring the humans nourishment.

The human smokes and he's put in jail!

From my paper:

The South carolina Court of Appeals has upheld a judge's contempt order against a Matthews, South Carolina woman who signed a court document instructing the judge to "kiss my ass".
Circuit Judge Judith Goldstein found Judith law in contempt and ordered her to serve 90 extra days.

Uh-oh. Dicey territory, SC. That's where the show is headed next!

Ja tension and ridiculousness.


What is up with Mars retro in Gemini? It's been quite a day here of phone calls by distressed people. How 'bout around you?

Ja tension and ridiculousness.

And how. Thank you, St.B., for breaking it.

No phone calls. I don't talk on the phone anymore. I get enough distress here.

The crossing, as you've talked about so much, is here and it's terrifying as well as joyous. The old dimension of Islam and terrorists almost disappeared although it will return somewhat. People are terrified when what they've been gripping dissolves. Really scary sensation. that's where they are now and it's beyond the personal so they don't know what's up or down.

Do your best to soothe their worries.

I don't have the distress around me anymore. I had many many years of it and when they were gone I decided not to engage personally with it anymore. I decided to get collectively involved, instead, quite a challenge for a Cancer. But I've found that people's troubles never go away, yet things do work themselves out, with or without me. One trouble gets fixed, another one comes. People actually do quite well, I think. We're equipped for life.

I thought that, too. :-)

The players are on stage. The drama unfolds, the audience is entranced, spellbound by weavers of words and images.

A class of people engaged because they've come to love the arena excitement of politics.

And the slogging work of governance? Well.

My aunt said the other day, "We were like that when we were young. We didn't know better. Influenced by advertising." I said, "You were?"

"HAPPY BIRTHDAY and may this year be superb"

Aw...Thanks so much! I always have a big project during my birthday week. (Birthday = work. Astrology?) It's rare that I can get away at that time; apparently, I'm needed in that role for now. I just received today, from a teammate on the project, an open commendation for integrity and professionalism in my work. I don't think he knew it was my birthday.

2008 = 2+0+0+8 = 10 = 1+0 = 1

The number of the year is also my personal year reading. The 1 Year, a new beginning, the solar identity re-emergent. Fateful years, perhaps, when I am liable to change direction in some way, go down a new path. Things shift, and then the next decade becomes different to the last. I guess I'll see!

With the outcome of the NH primaries, I'm reasonably pleased: I preferred that it be a close, challenging race, and it has been.

Integrity and professionalism, nice to be noticed by a teammate. But really it is doubtful that you are not seen just this way plus creative and kind.

Have a good year, new uncle and wobbly kindred.

And don't be a total stranger! You can come and give us the numbers rundown occasionally. We're stuck here with our arithmetic books open. Plus, the solar is always in great demand.:-)
