By noon on Tuesday, the opening day of the Democratic National Convention, the moon will have moved into Taurus. And there it will stay until the end.
Moon in Taurus will trine sun and Mercury in Virgo and trine Pluto in Capricorn. You know what that means – grand earth trine. The trine is a little wide, yes, but still a lot of earth coming to the party.
Lots of earth, especially Taurus, should bode well for the Democratic Party because earth represents not just practical daily matters, but the “thing” we all seek – money.
Vice President Joe Biden, with sun in Scorpio and moon in Taurus, will probably be passing the hat around while his sun-in-Leo running mate stands on stage attracting the lights.
Biden is also having a Mars return (in Scorpio) so he will be unusually charismatic during this time. Biden will probably be doing the “work” of the convention, whatever that is (I really don’t know).
Mars in Scorpio is also conjunct Obama’s Neptune in Scorpio so I’m guessing these two will come dressed especially well and may even receive notice for how they look physically.
That’s what earth does – it notices the stain on the wall, the pimple on your face and dust bunnies in the corner. The details will be taken care of with sun in detail-oriented Virgo.
Jupiter transiting Gemini will be conjunct Obama’s moon and Biden’s Uranus/Saturn conjunction. Biden may want to speak more rather than passing the hat in dark corners and making sun-in-Scorpio promises for moon-in-Taurus money. Biden wants to speak but may be prevented from doing so.
Obama’s sun in Leo, moon in Gemini loves to talk and with Jupiter above in Gemini, Obama will talk until he drops. Leo loves attention and if you laugh at its jokes, it will continue telling the same joke until it’s not funny anymore. Succinct and concise are words not in the lexicon of a Leo/Gemini.
The other side of earth, besides the ability to earn money and accumulate goods, is stability. While many if not most of us seek stability, stability is, how shall we say it, a little boring?
Conventions, to me, are 100 percent boring, but boring like other adjectives is in the eye of the beholder.
The only “fun” or unexpected events come from Uranus in Aries, exactly square Pluto in Capricorn. Uranus in Aries brings headstrong, impulsive outbursts, of the fiery kind. This aspect has been occurring for a little while now and will create exact squares a few more times, I think.
Let’s see, what weather conditions involve lots of earth and a little fire or spark? Hmm. Maybe a volcano erupting? That’s a Uranus in Aries sudden explosion with lots and lots of earth.
Will a volcano erupt at the Democratic National Convention? Is Clint Eastwood coming?
