Speaking to America
The first debate between John McCain and Barack Obama is scheduled to take place in two days. Should the debate be held as scheduled? Should the debate be held, but the format changed to focus on the economy? Or, should the debate be postponed?
Hold as scheduled: 50%
Hold with focus on economy: 36%
This is a great moment for astrology lovers. Mercury goes retrograde in Libra, the sign of debate, and it couldn't get more precise -- is it on or off? Debating the debate. The people want on.
Here's what's happening. Mercury is going backward at 22 Libra conjunct Mars at 23 trine Neptune, god of chaos, at 21 Aquarius. The beautiful thing is the grand air trine it forms with Mars at 21 Gemini in the US chart. Magnificent. The confusion has thrown the solution itself into chaos masking the original financial crisis. Or is it a crisis? No one can decide anything.
So Congress is an uproar and retro Mercury oddly influenced one candidate's request to cancel the big Friday presidential debate. Merc retro is quincunx Uranus at 20 Pisces exactly on his Saturn. The public yells, "No!!" The Saturn-Uranus opposition gains momentum with one revolt after another. It will be interesting to see who wins the debate issue.
The disintegration of John McCain is nearing completion as Uranus on his Saturn finishes next Tuesday. The shift in the halls of power is ratcheting up to gargantuan proportions. Who's in charge?
One thing to keep in mind is Jupiter trine Saturn grounding the madness and highlighting the cool, calm, reasonable, pragmatic, fine and mellow choice of leadership, something getting more desirable by the minute. Just our Jupiterian luck with Pluto in Sagittarius spinning the roulette wheel. 11s for me, my winning number. Got me a set of steak knives once. Is America listening? It appears that way. I can't decide.
