Once casting a chart for the Sun entering Cancer on June 21, 2010 at 7:28:25 in Washington, D.C. we then track the movement of Mars and list the dates Mars makes contact with planetary position in the Solar Ingress.
July 26th Mars is conjunct Saturn which is not good for the president or the government. It indicates a “difficult national life,” says Astrologer H.S. Green and “unpopularity” toward the leaders of the nation. Columnist for the American Spectator, Daniel Oliver is a prime example writing, “Prior to being elected, he [Obama] had done almost nothing. Certainly nothing requiring or teaching, executive ability.”
Oliver described Obama’s leadership today, saying, “He has gotten himself into a “square box,” meaning that he has run into the limits of his experience and his imagination.” As approval ratings for Obama have dropped to 41% nationwide Oliver’s conclusion about Obama reflect much of America’s perception of the president, “Obama’s performance will not get better, because Obama lacks the experience and the imagination to make it better. His crash now seems inevitable.” Mars conjunct Saturn will bring plenty more criticism to Obama.
Astrologer Green also says there is a “turbulent spirit directed at those in high places; riots, crimes, murders… the president may lose support or may act autocratically. Some very eminent person may die or be assassinated.”
On Tuesday June 15th President Obama addressed the nation hoping to appear that he has a handle on the out of control BP oil spill. The speech was not received well by the public 57 days after the oil spill erupted. Everyone seems to be very angry that the president is not leading and is disconnected from real time issues. “That’s why Tuesday’s speech,” writes Charles Krauthammer, “was received with such consternation. It was so untethered from reality. The Gulf is gushing, and the president is talking mystery roads to unknown destinations. That passes for vision, and vision is Obama’s thing. It sure beats cleaning up beaches.”
Our president is floundering in the wake of the BP oil leak but there are many other issues. This president has identified himself as a politician that believes in a one party government. The takeover of healthcare is a voter registration based superstructure that Obama willfully muscled through Congress without a single Republican vote and without public consent. Americans are angry because they know Obama has to resort to a “corrupt process because Americans won’t willingly approve a “reform” that massively increases government power, erodes individual freedom, and redefines citizens’ relationship to our government,” says Newt Gingrich in his book, ‘To Save America.’
Mars-Saturn may bring other problems that will certainly weigh on this administration and Congress such as the recent failure of the Senate to spare doctors from Medicare cuts. Doctors across the nation are already piping hot because, “that means doctors, nurse practitioners, physical therapists and other providers who bill under Medicare’s physician fee schedule,” reports the Associated Press, will be paid less because “Medicare announced it would begin processing claims it has already received for June at the lower rate…doctors will have to resubmit their claims [probably after midterm elections in November] if they want to be made whole, with added paperwork costs both for the providers and for taxpayers.” This is bungling and an example of bureaucratic inept handling of medical issues. This will be the constant result of Obama’s one central authority – delayed process, angry doctors and an irate public.
July 29th Mars square Sun ideally could play out as a positive time for the president but it is not likely. This is not a positive presidency. Obama has made it perfectly clear he harbors deep resentment and contempt for American values. His contempt is turning on him and will be expressed by the people directed at his own incompetence.
This Mars square Sun is a difficult energy because a square indicates conflict and Mars represents anger and the Sun represents the president or other officials. This energy may manifest as violence against the leaders. H.S. Green says Mars-Sun produces “disputes, quarrels, and disagreement here at home or with other countries.” It may manifest as “party differences being widened” and “hostility and opposition” directed at the president and government officials.
As reported by Michelle Ye Hee Lee of The Arizona Republic, “Arizona’s state Capitol has become ground zero for immigration activism.” The Senate Bill 1070 an illegal-immigration enforcement law was signed by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer in late April 2010. President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and National Security Advisor Janet Napolitano in knee-jerk fashion criticized the law before reading it.
President Obama in his usual manner of trivializing those with whom he disagrees joked at a White House Correspondents’ Dinner, “We all know what happens in Arizona when you don’t have ID — adios, amigos,” reports Fox Nation.
Gov. Brewer was not amused as the border security issue is not a laughing matter. “It’s fair to ask whether he intends to be the Commander-in-Chief or the Comic-in-Chief,” Gov. Brewer said. “I could suggest that he should not give up his day job…unfortunately, though, he isn’t doing very well at that one, either,” she added.
The tensions are high between Gov. Brewer and Obama as well as across the nation concerning illegal entry into America. To add fuel to the fire Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated in an interview in Ecuador that Obama was going to sue the state of Arizona.
The Associated Press reported that, “Mrs. Clinton said President Obama thinks the federal government should determine immigration policy and that the Justice Department “will be bringing a lawsuit against the act.”
Governor Jan Brewer, a Republican, said in a statement that “this is no way to treat the people of Arizona…to learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorean interview with the secretary of state is just outrageous,” she said. “If our own government intends to sue our state to prevent illegal-immigration enforcement, the least it can do is inform us before it informs the citizens of another nation.”
The controversial law takes effect July 29th and “hundreds of non-Arizona activists,” writes Michelle Ye Hee Lee, “have arrived to make the state a marketplace of competing views on immigration…via Arizona’s national soapbox.”
July 30th Mars opposite Uranus
This combination of energy shows Obama and the leadership in America will be shocked by “sudden and unexpected trouble,” as described by H.S. Green, because Mars-Uranus often symbolizes “false steps.” Obama has been plagued with false steps since his presidential inauguration. Peggy Noonan recently wrote in the Wall Street Journal that Obama is a “snake bit president” much like Jimmy Carter and is simply “unlucky.”
There may be sudden changes when Mars-Uranus is active – perhaps in the Obama administration or with some of Obama’s czars. Obama is ripe for unpredictable trouble because he does not hold the best interest of the American people at heart. Mars-Uranus indicates impulsiveness and disturbances, the failure of passing a bill, party splits or even as severe as H.S. Green suggests, “a statesman falling ill” or dying.
Astrology is a system of symbols that can be used to investigate past, present and future energies in our daily environment. Let’s watch the headlines as we approach the dates listed above through the month of July 2010. It is wise to pay attention a few days prior to these dates. If the issue is a hot one it will strike like a bolt of lightning. ©Greg Reese 2010
