Today is primary voting day for Nevada. A look at Nevada’s horoscope, by admittance to the Union, shows it to be a Scorpio sun and Scorpio moon state. Scorpio is ruled by Pluto. Pluto is Nevada’s chart is opposite the sun, in Taurus.
Scorpio is a fixed water sign known for its intensity and it rules the 8th house of sex, relationships, death and taxes.
Sun and moon in Scorpio with Pluto opposite says this is one intense state. While it’s known for its glamour city Las Vegas, Nevada clearly wants more than gambling proceeds. I’m guessing that Nevada is also a tax haven of some sort.
Housing nuclear waste might be represented by the Pluto in Taurus opposition to Scorpio. I’ve never truly understood if prostitution is legal anywhere in this state. If so, Nevada is saying, I’ll make money in those ways others say is bad.
That’s Scorpio. I’ll go into the murky waters others avoid.
Pluto in Taurus also suggests upheavals in property or physical state. I don’t know if Nevada is prone to earthquakes but from this aspect I’m guessing that it is.
Pluto opposite sun and moon is, frankly, bad news. While Pluto can be called transformation, Pluto opposite sun and moon is invasion, an invasion like rape.
For all that intensity, there is quite a bit of air and fire to offset this fixed sign opposition. Mars and Uranus are in Gemini, Saturn in Libra, Jupiter and Venus are in Sagittarius and Neptune is in Aries.
Currently Uranus is transiting that Neptune in Aries. I’m guessing that due to Nevada’s strong Scorpionic traits, it’s been a behind-the-scenes manipulator. With Uranus transiting Neptune, some of the mechanics of what is going on will emerge. The emergence will be sudden and with much fire and emotional eruption.
This is the state that hosts “Burning Man” once a year. This event can accurately represent the state as a whole.
Mitt Romney is expected to take this state as easily as a highway gunman takes a virginal damsel. The reason, I hear, is that Nevada is a Mormon state.
This is a good indication of what Scorpio can bring – politics, religion, gang, the mob. All are involved in power.
Romney has moon in Scorpio so fits right in. I suspect that in Nevada there is much more going on behind the scenes than simple Mormon brotherhood. With Scorpio and Taurus energy, there are probably money and property exchanges involved.
Newt Gingrich with his Gemini-Sagittarius personality does appeal to the air in Nevada’s chart. You might say he’s the Las Vegas in Nevada’s chart, but Gingrich must remember that Las Vegas brings more than fun to Nevada – it brings bucket loads of money.
Fun is fun, money is money. Nevada is about the money and the power it brings. Gingrich is really not about money.
Rick Santorum will find that Nevada’s an intense water sign. You are an intense earth-air fixed combination. Scorpio makes a T-square in your horoscope.
Santorum likes intensity, but must have a plan, a blueprint. Scorpio intensity is about politic maneuvering; Aquarius intensity is about the idea itself.
For Santorum, Nevada is too emotional, focusing its passion on personal revenge rather than idealistic heights. It’s like going on a date with someone and then having them stalk you.
Ron Paul, like Santorum, has a fixed sun (in Leo) and fixed moon (in Taurus). Nevada’s Scorpio energy also creates a T-square in his chart.
As with Santorum, Scorpio is too intense for Paul.
Leo is open hearted; Scorpio is hurt easily.
Taurus enjoys simple physical pleasures; Scorpio likes intense, emotionally threatening invasion.
Leo is romance; Scorpio is S&M.
Viva Las Vegas
I’m not a fan of Las Vegas since I’m a stingy Capricorn who doesn’t like to give my money away for nothing but the sensation of manic highs and lows. All I see in the lights of the strip are vacuums sucking at my wallet.
I know, I know, I’m no fun. But deep down, Nevada is no fun either. Be careful.
