Dick Cheney, former Vice President, needs some lovin’. Neptune will be transiting his Pisces moon, opposing natal Neptune, and Pluto is conjunct his Capricorn Venus. His emotional life will be undergoing some intense changes.
Venus in Capricorn is extremely selective about friends. A little snobbish, if you will. Venus in Capricorn is the fraternity brother or sorority sister. This is about friendships through social conventions and structures rather than friendships borne of bumping into someone at the gas station and lending them a dollar.
Possibly that clique of friends isn’t living up to the agreement to treat Cheney with Capricorn respect. Maybe Cheney’s memoirs which he said according to an Associated Press story, “would cause heads to explode” is a way to get some respect.
With Moon in Pisces and Venus in Capricorn I expect these memoirs contain more than a bit of self-pity for perceived sacrifices Cheney has made. Cheney’s sun in Aquarius is detached and aloof. But Pisces moon is not.
Cheney was known to keep secrets well and demand others do the same. I consulted eHow.com to learn about the psychology of secrets.
According to eHow.com, benign secrets contribute to a healthy sense of self and malignant secrets can cause “deep psychological anguish.” I learned that malignant secrets can “diminish the quality of people’s relationships, alienating them from others and imposing loneliness.”
Cheney may be feeling lonely, not just from keeping secrets, but from having a very emotional moon that he does not express openly.
Jupiter is transiting Taurus now passing Cheney’s natal Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Taurus. Money may have also played a need in publishing these memoirs at this time.
Neptune left the sign of Aquarius this year. If I were a fortune-telling-type of astrologer, I would have guessed these memoirs would have been published in 2008 when Neptune was transiting Cheney’s Mercury in Aquarius.
Cheney has a bunch of planets in the last four signs of the zodiac – Sagittarius (Mars), Capricorn (Venus), Aquarius (sun, Mercury) and Pisces (moon). These signs are about public life, mass conscious and the populace. I hope Cheney explains in his memoirs what drove him to public life and to keep secrets in the public’s behalf.
Natal Neptune opposes natal moon in Pisces suggesting an imaginative, dreamy, psychic but melancholy personality. Cheney might be feeling a little depressed right now.
The current grand cross in cardinal signs (Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Libra and Mars in Cancer) isn’t too hard on Cheney’s chart. I don’t think he’s going through the stressful relationship problems others are.
I suspect Cheney wants “heads to explode” for several reasons: 1) he wants respect; 2) he wants us to know what he sacrificed for us and 3) he just needs some attention.
If Cheney wants heads to explode, then maybe his own head is exploding from his cherished secrets and deep feelings that no one understands simply because he won’t tell anyone about these feelings. Cheney is smart enough to find a creative way to unleash these intense feelings.
That Pluto transit over natal Venus makes me believe that Cheney feels let down by his friends. Friendships based on structure often fall apart when the structure goes away. Maybe Cheney needs to let his Aquarius sun and Pisces moon do the friend picking. His friends will be more loyal and truly loving that way.
