The US government is currently closed for business while the two political parties (Republican and Democrat) struggle over an appropriations bill. President Obama and House Speaker John Boehner have come to no agreement and now the Senate Majority Leader (Harry Reid) and Senate Minority Leader (Mitch McConnell) are in the spotlight to resolve the conflict.
An article in The Fix states that Reid and McConnell don’t get along.
What is the purpose of astrology if not to help bridge the gap of dualistic thinking? Astrologers world wide seek to use the ancient discipline of astrology to help those of influence and control resolve their human relationship issues.
OHA is no exception.
Reid and McConnell are carrying the empty wallet of the US on their shoulders. This empty wallet is a heavy burden because once it is filled, the bill collectors will be knocking on the doors of our nation.
Reid and McConnell
Reid has sun in Sagittarius and moon in Leo. McConnell has sun in Pisces and moon in Aries or Taurus.
With three planets and possibly the moon in accumulating earth-sign Taurus, McConnell probably has enough saved from his 71 years of living to personally fund Social Security.
Do 71-year old senators collect Social Security?
Reid is quite the opposite of McConnell with Sagittarius and Leo in the horoscope. Mars in Pisces squares sun in Sagittarius which makes Reid quite generous, quite generous indeed. Whether he actually has money or not does not inhibit his generosity.
Maybe that’s why Reid continues to work?
Do 74-year old senators collect Social Security?
This counseling is going to be tough. But both men are plenty mature enough to work through a tough-love session of Getting Along.
Counseling usually takes a long time as the counseled discovers insights for him/herself. But since the bills are due on Thursday, we’ll just offer some quick advice (for free – don’t want to make the fiscal worries more intense).
These two really should never have gotten married, but since they did they are going to have to join on a few degrees of Pisces energy.
The common ground here is a true caring for others.
Next up, Neptune, which creates fuzzy, hazy but spiritual thinking. Transiting Neptune is conjunct McConnell’s sun and T-square Reid’s sun and conjunct Mars.
Both should delegate this responsibility to others who can think more clearly right now.
The current transit of Saturn in Scorpio opposes Reid’s Uranus in Taurus and McConnell’s Mars/Saturn/Uranus in Taurus. The fear of personal finance loss is almost palpable. McConnell has much more to lose.
Personal involvement can be important, since feeling one’s own financial free fall can help feel the pain of others’ financial woes. But fear of loss does not always create the best long-term decisions.
Saturn in Scorpio squares McConnell’s Venus and Mercury in Aquarius. This square (which is part of a T-square with Taurus) makes McConnell’s impersonal speech patterns more spirited but too rigid.
Reid’s equally cool and distant Venus in Capricorn is being transited by Pluto.
In summary, while both may care, each is unable to express those feelings and instead communicate in managerial, professorial and authoritative tones. You have no inkling that there is true feeling.
This is a tough case and counselors never should say “get divorced,” but I must. These two should take a back seat those who are not currently experiencing a major Neptune transit. Both men are soon up for natal Neptune oppositions as well, adding to the confusion.
Neptune is both a savior and a victim; as victim, often a scapegoat. Scapegoats don’t become mascots for sports teams.
Scapegoats travel solo as the group ostracizes them. The longer the scapegoat lingers, the more time the group has to avoid the problem. Scapegoats, when possible, should leave the situation.
So when do senators retire?
