All's Fair

Mars in Libra: balance or else
I have a Mars in Libra and my drive toward symmetry can be downright aggravating. I can't leave it alone, and when I move something there, I have to move something here to balance it. It makes for great design skill as an artist but sometimes I wish I could just leave something hanging. Even the Chinese health specialists can see equilibrium in my body parts.
Mars went into Libra a couple of weeks ago and will be traveling there until the end of the month. The Great Balancing is happening now creating the ability to move forward decisively. The Sun and Mercury are coming in, too, and Mercury goes retrograde, so an uncommon equalizing is occurring. No wonder the polls are even.
Libra falls exactly opposite the ascendant on the natural wheel, the 7th house, where the reflection of the entity is seen in full and identity is recognized. The same thing happens in oppositions planet-wise. The perfect mirror is created to look at, make decisions, and move forward with intent. That's what's scheduled for the Big Day when the Saturn-Uranus opposition gives citizens the perfect looking glass.
Because of my Mars I've always believed in justice, whether I like the details or not. Obama came out of nowhere and rose like a meteor, attracting huge crowds, winning the nomination, and leading in the polls until now. A superstar, a shining beauty, a symbol of the crowd's aspirations. Promising change.
Then along came Mars in Libra. And in exquisite harmony, the star came down and up rose the carbon copy. Shooting polls, multitudes, a shimmering beauty promising change. Now we're even. In perfect alignment. Two American Idols lighting the heavens.
It's only fair. Love and war. And the equality of polarity life insists upon. Why shouldn't the Republicans have the same experience as the Democrats? And if you think about it - the intelligent and educated are just as much a part of democracy as the not-so-sharp and the uninformed, and everybody's vote counts the same. The mean and the nice. However the scales tip, they always fluctuate to create an ongoing equilibrium.
There's a sense that the conservative revolution started 40 years ago is poised to be adjusted with a realignment of the government. Both parties have had their heroes. After Reagan for the Republicans came Clinton for the Democrats, then Bush for the Republicans, and now? What's fair is fair. An additional factor is the United States Saturn in Libra portraying a destiny dedicated to learning equal and opposite, harmony, peace, civility, fair debate, and political cooperation. Saturn also falls in the 10th house of government. Sounds fair to me.
In October 2009, Saturn goes into Libra headed for a return to its natal position. All the more emphasis on the aisle-crossing and what-not dreamed about these days. The end to the extreme partisan warfare without logical debate. Uranus goes into Aries about that time and forms a T-square with Pluto in Capricorn, an entirely different set of energies than we have now. And then you can add progressed Mars in Libra for years and years and years. Change? Perhaps. Inner warfare? That too. Equal input from the two parties? That would be ideal. Whatever transpires, I know from personal experience that the urge toward equilibrium can be impossible to defy.
In the meantime. All's fair in the polls.

That photo of Torres del Paine. I trekked there about 10 years ago. Those towers...one minute sunny, the next wracked in storms. Unpredictable weather, high winds and extreme beauty characterize that part of the world.

Fits the theme.

Speaking of peaks. I wonder about Mooselini.

I didn't see her first incredible debut interview but from what I heard the foreign policy prep didn't work too well. Basically, "Well, Charlie, we have to kill them". Oh, and something about Israel and guesses.

So this was timed perfectly with the terrorist 9/11 gala, beginning of the famous "Bush Doctrine?"
"In what way, Charlie".

Tell me this is reality. I think they're off their game somewhat. A hockey puck on the Russian front!

I certainly hope this ends up being understood as the vaudeville farce it is. "The Stooges never go away, do they, Charlie?"

With my Moon-Joop in Sadge in the 9th, thank god I'm used to relying on prayer.

Well, you know what they say. You can put lipstick on a moose, but....

Well, one article described it as "a strained and illuminating conversation."

She stuck to general or rote responses. Interestingly, the interviewer this time wasn't as softball as some warned he could be.

I think it must be the "John Wayne McCain" (as they called him around the naval academy) movie reality.

Hmmm...Could be material for one! She seemed to be open to making cross-border attacks into Pakistan, an idea which McCain has disparaged as "naive" and which he has strongly criticized several times. Tsk.

I guess you can put lipstick on just about anything.

Yes, it was surprising to many who were expecting softball.

It looks to me like genuine psychotic territory. Everyone who pays attention knows that she knows nothing of the world, yet they create the illusion and set her up to be the possible leader of the western world. It's sci-fi mixed with gothic horror. And McCain grins his creepy grin and remains tethered to whoever is his captor at the time. Shades of Hades.

Oh where are those romantic comedies I adore?

It doesn't matter what they say since it's all a massive jumble of lies at this point. They aren't even trying to disguise it. She's so robotic and I'm surprised the public doesn't sense it.

Pakistan? Is that anywhere near Juneau?

Politics of the Absurd

"Charlie: Do you agree with the Bush Doctrine?

Miss Mooselini: In what respect, Charlie?

Charlie: What do you interpret it to be?

Miss Mooselini: His worldview?

Charlie: No, No, the Bush Doctrine, you dumb mooseshit!

Miss Mooselini: I believe that what President Bush has attempted to do is to rid this world of Islamic extremism, terrorists who are hellbent on destroying our nation.

Charlie: The Bush Doctrine, as I understand it, is that we have the right of anticipatory defense. We have the right to preemptively strike any other country that we believe is going to attack us.

Miss Mooselini: I'll be doggone."

Ha ha! Map quiz interview! Why, it's (along with everything else) somewhere on the other side of Russia.

"And McCain grins his creepy grin and remains tethered to whoever is his captor at the time."

It's huge disrespect to the nation. The Fourth Estate ought to be sustainingly angry in recognizing how much it has become a propagandist tool. It belies the politician's blather about media bias when there no longer seems to be much consequence for distortion and deceit.

"the right of anticipatory defense"

More like "shoot first, ask questions never."

"I got lost in a blizzard of words there." Translation: "Show me, don't snow me."

Politicians who can only say in general terms what we should be doing actually have no idea what to do.

Actually, with the doctrine, it doesn't have to be the kind of "imminent" danger to which she hypothetically referred. The interviewer didn't pursue that enough.

I agree kadimiros. This is unreal and we are in uncharted territory. The fourth has been just playing their games and I think suddenly the reality is hitting them.

It's Pluto just turned direct. I think the lie factor is going to emerge which includes their damned complicity through all these years.

there no longer seems to be much consequence for distortion and deceit.

This is the consequence. It's here. Naked.

Politicians who can only say in general terms what we should be doing actually have no idea what to do.

She has no idea about anything outside of her little world. There is no reason for the interviewers to be serious. It's beyond her grasp. They'll struggle to get her to cover it up but I have my doubts.

No one knows what's going on other than we HAVE to elect Obama. So everyone should do something, especially donate -- even $5.

For those who have time, canvassing is the best thing to do. Talking reasonably to people. They really don't know having the media we do. We have to do the work ourselves and this could be the logic behind this apparent mental breakdown.

It's a huge test with Pluto leaving Sagittarius. Pluto is life and death, Sagittarius, truth and lies. It ties back into Iraq when lying meant death and here we are.
