Ohio Political Fight Club: Beatty and Long

Ohio’s re-configured 3rd Congressional District will have a new representative this fall. Joyce Beatty, Democrat and Chris Long, Republican, will be duking it out for a seat in the House of Representatives.

Trying to find Long’s birthday, I stumbled upon his website. If that’s all one can muster, I thought, I’d definitely vote for his opponent. A man with a 1990s website may have difficulty with 21st century issues. Long’s website reminds me of the old diners you find in some small towns (like Mount Vernon) that have a sign in the window announcing the restaurant has air conditioning.

Beatty’s website, powered by Blue Campaign Solutions, appears much more polished at first. So I began to dig through her site to find – nothing. I either donate or volunteer. I’m guessing with Blue Campaign Solutions behind her, the site will improve.

Here’s where Democrat and Republican can meet for some bi-partisan website development.

Long can steal Beatty’s look and feel while Beatty add information about what she plans to do for the people who may elect her.

Both need to remember that this is OHIO. This is the state where Rick Santorum and Mitt Romney dueled like 18th century dandies for the hand of OHIO. In the fall, politicians will be traversing our state like chipmunks running across back patios hiding nuts.

Develop a good, navigable, relevant website, Beatty and Long, and make OHIO proud.

Joyce Beatty

I found Beatty’s date of birth, but not Long’s. Beatty is a Pisces sun and Capricorn moon.

You heard it, Pisces and Capricorn. I talk about those signs a lot because Neptune has just entered Pisces for its 13-year travel through that sign. Pluto is in Capricorn and will be there for about ten more years.

Beatty’s Saturn is in Virgo and Mars/Neptune in Libra.

You heard it, Virgo and Libra. I talk about these two signs a lot because Saturn is still transiting Libra and Mars is retrograde in Virgo until mid-summer.

This is an interesting time for Beatty.

Sensitive and Hard

Sun in Pisces and moon in Capricorn is an interesting combination. Pisces is the mutable water sign, the last sign of the zodiac, the one that is most sensitive and feeling. Pisces feels so much and so strongly that it often must retreat for protection.

Retreat for Pisces can involve imaginative play, creativity, daydreaming or pure escapism through drugs and alcohol.

Pisces is the most empathetic of the signs – the only sign, I sometimes think, that truly feels others’ pain. Pisces is associated with mediumistic tendencies.

Because of this sensitivity, Pisces is prone to easy manipulation through outside influences. More than any other sign, Pisces takes on the quality of the environment.

Moon in Capricorn, on the other hand, is NOT like Pisces. Rather than feeling, it is about control. This can be good for a boundary-less Piscean soul but also can be difficult because the feelings have difficulty being expressed.

How does this play out in the personality?

Beatty might be a sympathetic soul who listens and understands yet still demands that you do the work to change your life. She will have sympathy for you as long as you DESERVE sympathy.

Go ahead, cry on her shoulder, then get back to work. Try to cry every day on that shoulder and that shoulder will turn very, very cold.

Beatty might be drawn to politics out of a Piscean desire to help humanity. We’re seeing a lot of Pisces energy this election season, with Piscean sun Mitt Romney running for the presidency.

It’s raining Pisces.

Saturn in Virgo

Beatty’s Saturn in Virgo means she’s a perfectionist who never truly feels she’s good or perfect enough. Capricorn moon usually supports this kind of thinking and often punishes itself for every little deed considered bad (which is just about everything).

Beatty tries hard to be good and is more upset with herself that you’ll ever be when she feels she’s failed.

No need to punish Beatty, ever. She can punish herself much better than you can.

Mars and Neptune in Libra

Mars and Neptune in Libra bring charm and a warm, approachable demeanor. This conjunction trines Beatty’s Venus in Aquarius which makes friends with everyone, engages with everyone and is everyone’s best friend.

Beatty is best friend to many and close friend to few.

Moon in Capricorn is the boundary that the rest of her chart lacks. While in some ways this is good, I bet it troubles Beatty that at a certain point, her friendships start to fizzle. She makes friends fast and quick, but at some point the friendships may grow cold and distant.

Current Transits

Pluto in Capricorn will be conjunct that moon in Capricorn. Beatty can expect some female friendships to grow cold, very cold. Beatty, sun in Pisces, may wonder why. There’s a moat between Beatty and her friends that her friends may be explaining to her.

Uranus in Aries will square that moon causing additional, sudden disruptions in female friendships. Also, Beatty’s suppressed resentments will rise like volcano ash.

Beatty’s north node is in Aries so she is meant to assert herself. She may be learning some lessons about being tough versus being mean.

Saturn has passed its conjunction of Mars and Neptune, which must have also been rough. The charm wasn’t working for a while. By fall, the faucet of charm should be fixed as Saturn moves into Scorpio.

Neptune in Pisces will be conjunct Beatty’s Mercury in Pisces. This is story telling at its finest. You can say the water is poisoned or you can say it contains a necessary mineral.

I’m seeing a lot of Pisces in this election and I’m wondering if these Pisces are supposed to tell us about some pollution or water-borne issue (as Pisces is collective water). Hopefully one of these Pisces will spit out the truth if something like this is occurring.

Mars in Virgo until mid-summer will be triggering Beatty’s insecure Saturn in Virgo. She will be incomplete and insecure until sometime in June. As Mars passes from Virgo to Libra, she will feel energized, both charming and charmed and popular.

Late summer will be a pleasant and fun time for Beatty. Going into the fall election, she will feel like a million bucks.

Improve the website

Hopefully Beatty will improve her website to include her Piscean sun and Aquarian Venus vision for her electorate.

I suggest that Beatty add lots of pictures of herself. Pisces sun with Mars/Neptune conjunct in Libra make for a physically beautiful person. Attractiveness is a quality few of us can resist.

I'm just another soul trying to make sense of the world. As I've grown, so has my understanding of astrology. I'd like to communicate that astrology is not occult and not fortune-telling but that it is a fluid, creative description of the life we choose to live.
