Reading that the government is open for business again, I thought I’d take a look at one of the key players in the deal – House Speaker John Boehner.
Boehner is an Ohio boy and, therefore, close to the heart of OHA. Ohioans are known to care deeply for each other, to protect each other when abroad whether in Indiana or Russia.
As a fellow Ohioan, I’d like to offer Boehner the following astrological advice (for free): Take October off. Come back to Ohio, pick apples, hunt for pumpkins, break autumn gourds with your Ohio clansmen.
Here’s why: Today (surprise), Mars changed signs and is now transiting Virgo.
Mars in Virgo is passing over Boehner’s natal Mars/Saturn conjunction in Virgo. The criticism Boehner is receiving will continue for the next month, like a constant wind that is not hurricane force but strong enough in gust to keep messing up his hair, the hair he’s carefully groomed for the photo op.
Mars in Virgo is getting a paper cut on the day you must catch up on the filing.
The last time Mars was in Virgo, Republican nominee Mitt Romney lost the presidency. Boehner may want to heed that period and not make Romney-like comments about people who don’t pay taxes and such.
Mars in Virgo will make sure any snarky comments get posted to YouTube and go viral with Virgo-like organization and efficiency. Mars in Virgo is looking closely for things to find fault with. Mars in Virgo has the camera ready to roll, is taking dictation, is measuring every word against every action.
It’s actually a good time not to talk, for Boehner. If Boehner wanted to have a little fun, he could merge into the transiting Neptune in Pisces aspect (which opposes his Mars and Saturn) and offer a little poetry on the situation. It would probably be more effective than a fact-fueled diatribe about what went wrong. With Neptune in Pisces opposing any Virgo energy, the Virgo in Boehner can’t understand why people don’t get the facts.
If Mars wasn’t enough, for the next year transiting Saturn in Scorpio will begin a conjunction of Boehner’s Mercury and sun. Saturn hits the breaks on the energy it finds. It contracts and restricts. The positive side is greater discipline, wisdom and maturity.
Boehner will be sadder but wiser in the coming year.
My first glance at Boehner’s aspects made me wonder if he’s looking for another job. Probing the Internet, I saw a few articles that suggested Boehner may not run for re-election in 2014. I’m suspecting that’s true, that Boehner may look for something more fulfilling.
In November 2014, Uranus will be transiting his north node in Aries, Pluto will be transiting his Venus and Jupiter will be smack on his natal Pluto. And by January 2015, Saturn will be finished smothering his Scorpio sun moving into early Sagittarius.
What that means to me is that Boehner will find a new, powerful position in different social setting. He will not be retiring to read the classics or put all those family and travel photos into scrapbooks. The conjunction to north node Aries suggests Boehner will be more independent. If I were to guess, I’d say he’s going to run a business or large corporate entity.
Boehner will be at the helm.
But until then, Mr. Speaker, when times get tough and everyone is spitting in your face, remember that the pastoral beauty of Ohio heals the wounds of a thousand political battles. Ohio, home to rare ancient earthworks with mysterious purpose, is more fascinating than Washington DC.
There’s no place like home.
