But on Friday when I watched the memorial I was struck by one thing. I just kept FEELING Jupiter.
Ted's indulgences, yes, but also a largeness in general to his spirit. Many people talked about his unexpected appearances at the funerals of friends' parents, or following through with notes and cards to his constituents, long after a senator would be expected to correspond. His ability to treat all people the same no matter what their station. And of course, the mistakes in his youth that later beget a desperately needed wisdom that would only come with age. And finally his dedication to his Catholic faith. All of this felt Jupiter. And then when his niece Caroline spoke of the big star in the sky, I knew she was describing Jupiter (which she did reveal as being Jupiter) and how that star reminded her of Teddy. No kidding...Jupiter all the way!
Anyway, it is NO surprise to this little astrologer that Ted had Jupiter in Leo in the 7th house.
Jupiter in the house of 'others'---the house of 'relating'.
My own Sun/Saturn in Sag in the 9th could feel that pronounced Jupiter. Also, I have Jupiter in the 7th---It is big...drives my own husband nuts.
Rest in Peace, Teddy.

Last weekend the Sun moved out of dramatic, showboaty Leo into discreet, quiet Virgo.
But please remember ---Quiet does not mean ---less lethal.
On Thursday---under the influence of Wednesday's Mars opposition Pluto, The FDIC released their quarterly report---Grim is the word.
So far, 81 banks have failed this year, including 45 in the second quarter.
That, in turn, has put enormous stress on the government’s deposit insurance
fund, which is supported by fees charged to the banks regulated by the
Its second-quarter reserve of $10.4 billion compares with $45.2
billion a year earlier.
Most of the decline comes from money that the
agency has set aside to cover the cost of bank failures, and Ms. Bair said
the fund had ample resources to cover all insured depositors.
But the levels are so low that
F.D.I.C. officials said Thursday that they would
consider imposing a special assessment on the banks, on top of elevated
insurance fees, toward the end of the third quarter. Through similar
actions, it added about $9.1 billion. It also will begin to recover some
money by selling the assets of banks that it seized.
Ms. Bair said
she did not anticipate having to immediately tap an emergency
credit line run by the Treasury Department, although she did not rule it out. “I never say never,” she said.
I would like you all to remember this posting. I think it could be important as planets begin to gather towards the cardinal grand cross in 2010.

Virgo rules health and hygiene and Pisces rules Medicine . No shit, Sherlock that the health care reform bill has been front and center since the last Opposition in February. Between now and the 15th I expect to see one hideous fear mongering health related story after another as these two energies are pulled and stretched.
Today I came across this story and thought----"Oh, there is the opposition!"
I continue to be bored by these stories as I find them all part and parcel of the hype fear mongering angle of the opposition.
Swine flu could kill up to 90,000 in U.S.
The H1N1 flu virus could cause
up to 90,000 U.S. deaths, mainly among children and young adults, if it resurges
this fall as expected, according to a report released Monday by a presidential
advisory panel. The report says a vaccine, expected in mid-October, would come
too late to help many victims.
ETA: I totally meant to add---and south node is officially in Cancer which I have written about quite a bit here and on Margaret Wendt's website. South node in Cancer brings out childish fears. This is added to this mess brings out even more ridiculous fears. We should all reach for Capricorn. Wise and Reserved is the key to all.
This Wednesday soldier Mars will be in opposition to explosive Pluto. It might be a Kaboom of a day but it is probably more like a day with Cold War salvos. Mars in Cancer is a warrior for his feelings while Pluto in Capricorn expresses NOTHING for Mars' feelings. If someone 'goes off ' on you today your instinct will probably be to do nothing. Stare at them and then walk away. The more emotional they get the colder you get. Or if you are the emotional one don't be surprised if you get all the emotions of Mt Rushmore on the other side of you. Nada.
It is also worth noting that at 12:09 pm Mercury in Libra will be squaring Pluto in Capricorn which just adds more chilliness to relationships.
On the broader picture it will be interesting to see if the square with Mercury and the Mars opposition foretells of our 2010 Summer. As mentioned here many times---Next summer we will have the cardinal climax between Pluto and Uranus and Jupiter and Mars and Saturn all in early degrees of Aries, Libra, Capricorn. The only missing cardinal sign is Cancer. Curiously, having Mercury in Libra square Pluto quickly followed by Mars Oppose Pluto could ring the bell. Take a look at the news on Wednesday and see what energy is out there---and note it may come back and bite us in the ass-pect.
If you are still unclear about the cardinal climax, HERE is a nice little summery by Robert Wilkerson.

So, what is on your calendar this weekend? Make it a good one. We won't have another one of these trines until April 2010.

New Moon begins tomorrow August 20, 6:02 (EDT).
I indicated that I believe it is the most powerful Leo New Moon that I have seen in at least ten years maybe 20. I almost fell over when I saw all the action. I wondered why we had two cancer new moons last month--and now I see why... we needed to purge our emotions to find out inner adults to deal with what is coming down the pick on this moon. It is BIG.
As always, I have generated a New Moon Report which you can find HERE
Here is a tidbit:
HEART OF GOLD
When it comes to New Moons it is sometimes best to
cut to the chase----- I don’t recall writing about or seeing a Leo New Moon as
powerful as this one in at least ten years! Possibly twenty.
It is big.
Leo is strong, courageous, proactive, heroic. It
puts its money where its mouth is---and in times like this that says a
lot. Whether it is loud or shy, Leo attracts attention, primary because of
its own magnetism. There is no escaping the Leo gravity. Of
course Leo rules actors and theaters but it is not necessarily because they are
center stage but also because performers put it all on the line, they put their
talent, craft and emotions for all to see (and judge)—that takes a certain
amount of bravery. As you can imagine, “Brave” is a Leo word.
The planet ruling Leo is the Sun and last time I looked the Sun
was pretty important to us Earthlings. Leo has a strong center even when
it stretches itself and Leo is inexhaustible almost under any circumstance but
perhaps it is most energized by its will to accomplish something that will last
long after he or she is gone. A lot of good in the world has come from Leo
energy even if when it is driven by a desire to provide a notable
Having said that-- when Leo is bad it is
bad. Bragging, lying, out-of-check Ego, exaggerating, personalizing
everything, making a mountain out of any mole hill---this is what Leo looks like
when it is bad. For them there is no such thing as a slight
injustice, everything is HUGE---“Kill the infidels!” If you
know any Leos you are probably nodding your head. One minute they can be
generous and great and the perfect person to take charge and get something done
and then the next moment they are the biggest energy suck in your life demanding
all your attention as they go over some perceived injustice, over and over and
over and over and over…..again.
Be prepared to
see this energy in the news. Some crazy out of check ego stomping all over the
place while at the same time there will be a David heroically taking down a
Goliath. All very Leo. I think it is somewhat funny that these
Town Halls meetings (USA) about health care have been taking place while the Sun
has been in Leo—a lot of lies and Leo theatrics. Although, I do believe
once the New Moon starts we’ll see a different tone to the meetings, perhaps
they will fizzle out or they will turn up a notice into a real
firestorm. Especially since Neptune is opposite Sun/Moon in
Leo. Neptune is Crazy and disillusioned and having it in the mix on
new moon will bring more cuckooness.
On a personal level you
may find yourself passionate about something that previously only inspired tepid
emotions. Or you could be fired up to finally take care of something
because it looks badly upon your character. “Our porch says something
about us---it is time to fix it!” Also if you feel
disillusioned about something, hang in there, it could be for a bigger reason
that something had to melt away. You may not know why, but if you don’t
ask why the answer will eventually come.
