Colored Water

Light passes through prisms over a field of macademia nut trees in Hawaii. Billions of driplets.

hi, jm --

Did you see this one on Our Man in Hawaii?

Heartbreaking. Ignore the troll in the comments.

Yeah, it's tough. But she's been sick for some time and the family has had a chance to prepare. She's ready. Oh how proud she must be. Awhile back she told him to smile more and he did what she said! She carefully monitored his rise, even getting a corneal transplant so she could watch CNN like the Scorpio hawk that she is. Her Capricorn made sure he got it right. It will be interesting to see exactly when she decides to travel on.

In the end it will be good so Barack can forge ahead and give his all to his country. He can devote himself fully to his mission without distraction. New relationships are soon to be formed and cemented. His Scorpio MC speaks of pinnacles and great depths and this experience is one of those moments. Such an intense man and life. You'll hear it in his inaugural speech - the heartbreak and the enthusiasm for the future. Saturn and Jupiter both in the 12th are like that. It ends with the fullness of Jupiter.

Saturn is just about to transit his 8th house so great loss and gain are written in his destiny now. It will bring him even more in touch with his power and emotional strength while nourishing his Scorpio 10th house of executive leadership. Then Saturn climbs to his 9th house Neptune and up to his MC, a very powerful moment. The bonds he's released from now will serve him well, clearing the way for the new ones. He probably will feel a lot of sorrow with Saturn in his 8th but his rapidly growing gorgeous daughters are there to remind him that he really has an inescapable thing with women.:-)

The timing of this event was amazing and the ease with which he incorporated it into the whole was interesting to witness. An intense emotional ride is in store with this guy. The love-hate isn't about to abate. Like most Leos, he reveals himself and his feelings. People are always having fits around him due to his heat and volatility.

I was there! I think it was more than 100,000.

Bruce Fein, former Justice Department lawyer did a book salon over at firedoglake today. For those who are not familiar with him, Fein has been an outspoken champion and defender of the Constitution which is and has been under assault in the last eight years. There were a number of memorable quotes, but I particularly like this one from Shakespeare:

"Sweet are the uses of adversity, which like the toad, ugly and venemous, wears yet a precious jewel in its head."

As You Like It

Saturn in the 8th -
profound. Brings awareness of one's mortality, or a journey into the depths.

Fitting too would be sublimating sexual energy.

Personally this transit taught me about my partner's values, that is the culture he was born into and raised under. If I recall, at the time I learned something about tantra from him as well.

So true about adversity. Good way to put it.

Yes. I saw him clearly through a quirk of fate. There were no video screens so I was lucky. Some very strange things happened.
The sea of humanity all the way across the center of town and up the capitol steps was a sight to behold. "good gracious," said the O-man."Do you people in Denver always have huge crowds?" Pluto is back on our 29 Venus in Sadge. And we just had him!

The vibes at Obama events are a hippie's dream come true. The diversity and the love thing. Good music, dancing. Remember the love-ins? Ha ha! Only this is for our prez. Un frikkinbelievable.

And the most unbelievable thing of all. I just got an e-mail from my non-political sister and she volunteered for the campaign!! I'm in shock.

It's so easy to get around here and I have never in my life seen organization like this campaign has. It was Sunday so parking was free, and there was plenty of it since I got there early. There were hundreds of volunteers caring for the crowd and no bottlenecks or aggravating jams of any kind.

I ended up in a rowdy spot though. They yelled at the volunteers blocking their view with some cheesy signs. It got worked out.

The funniest thing was the quartet of guys who climbed a tree to perch and watch. A staffer ordered them down. No response. A policeman came and ordered them down in no uncertain terms. No response. They looked like lost birds. No eye contact with the authorities. Blank stares into space, one on a cell phone. The authorities gave up.

...Un frikkinbelievable.

I saw Obama a few Saturdays ago in St. Louis where they say the crowd was around 100,000. And you're right - it totally felt like a love fest to me, too. Awesome.

I'm happy for you. It sounds like a great time.

I was only a child in the 60's. But I loved the vibe and was sorry to see it dissipate in the 70's and 80's (not that my friends and I didn't experience some of the same feelings, just with fewer people and generally on the sly)...

I'm looking forward to these new cosmic signatures which echo the 60's. I hope we can finally anchor all of those dreams of equality and sustainable living into this earthly plane.

Ebes, I'm so glad you were there. I have a special feeling about St. Louis and I don't know why. Great music was born there so that probably has something to do with it.

The communal vibe never really leaves. It keeps morphing into a new movement. We know deep down it's a good thing to share and the return of, god forbid, "socialism", is just the medicine that's needed.

It's the basis of church work, which is why they are so active in community organizing. This could be the nugget we take with us from Pluto in Sagittarius, leaving the theocracy idea for another era.
