The Chinese Mandate of Heaven described how the emperor had earned the right to rule. Ancillary to the mandate, there were signs that a ruler had “lost” the Mandate.
From About.com on Asian History:
“Signs that a particular ruler had lost the Mandate of Heaven included peasant uprisings, invasions by foreign troops, drought, famine, floods and earthquakes.”
At this beginning of the Republican National Convention, a hurricane is blowing past, creating enough threat to convention-locale Tampa to disrupt the process yet moving toward New Orleans and taking all the news stories with it.
I must admit I feel sorry for Mitt Romney, the Republican Presidential nominee. If you want a lesson on the dark or shadow side of Pisces it is this – Pisces is the last sign, the sacrificial goat and the victim. Sometimes stuff like this just seems to happen to Pisces and at other times Pisces seems the stand in the “Victim” line waiting for things to change.
If Romney wanted to convince me that President Obama had the ability to create weather patterns to perfectly disrupt the convention, I would believe him. It’s the perfect storm and confluence of events to ruin Romney’s moment in the spotlight. It’s like having Newt Gingrich back on the podium.
Or maybe it’s a message from the Gods not to vote Republican. I can’t quite decide . . .
Which Gods are Speaking?
The God Pluto passed over the moon yesterday to transform the convention. Pluto is evolution so the convention will evolve from its planned state to a state where it responds to the environment.
Pluto was conjunct moon in Capricorn on August 27, never a fun time. Storms and earthquakes were the news (as well as a little fighting in Syria).
The good news is that today (August 28) the moon moves into Aquarius. Brotherly love will prevail. While I wouldn’t call Aquarius emotional, the one-day delay may release some very sincere demonstrations of sharing and communing.
Yes, communing. That’s what Aquarius does.
The two-day Age of Aquarius will last through Wednesday.
Romney may want to listen to the voice of his own God Neptune (ruler of Pisces) and hold off on any speech until magical Thursday when the moon is conjunct Neptune (although he must watch out for the void of course moon which is described well on this site).
With the God Neptune involved, Romney can share his pain and he might be advised to do just that. Sensitivity is the order of the day, not toughness. I know, I know, act sensitive and they might call you a wimp. Dramatic Leo Bill Clinton cried with the masses (and was believed), so Romney could take some lessons from a pro.
Are the Gods Telling Us Not to Vote Republican?
Hmm. I’d love to say, “Yes,” but I think the gods are telling Republicans to transform ideas of what the convention should be.
Pluto over the moon might be saying, “Dumb rigid rules, I’m getting rid of them.” Neptune will then come around to gather the dust and arrange it into an etheric and emotional whole.
At the end of the convention, I’m imaging there may be talk like “this is the best thing that could have happened to us.” The Aquarius moon will bring the ideas together and Pisces moon will forge emotional connectedness.
