Horoscope for Impeachment
Equinox Chart: Tendencies for the rest of this year
In the Equinox chart for Washington DC, the first thing we see is that the nation wants to actively debate current issues. The planet Mercury rules the Ascendant and the Midheaven (top of chart) pointing to a highly mental and analytical period. The country is seeking exchange of ideas, balance and compromise (Mercury in Libra). There is a drive to understand, investigate and disseminate information (Mercury trines Mars and Neptune in the air signs). The media, represented by Mercury as the messenger, have been in the forefront of the debate for a long time (it was prominent in the 2006 Spring Equinox and 2007 Summer solstice charts). During the past few years, many worthwhile documentaries such as “Iraq for Sale” and “Why We Fight” have looked under the covers at some of the abusive profits and business interests at work in perpetuating our wars. The debates will continue as long as Mercury keeps reappearing predominantly in current mundane charts. This may explain why impeachment is still very much alive in people’s mind, despite the assurance of the congressional leadership that there isn’t enough support for it.
In keeping with that forecast, I am off to attend the pro-impeachment visibility at the Conyers/Ellison event for H.R. 676 - here are the details: 1-3 p.m. at The Historic Heights Theater in Columbia Heights just north of Minneapolis, Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison is hosting a Forum on "Health Care for All Americans" with special guest Congressman John Conyers, Jr.
