Ohio Astrology on Mitt Romney

leave a comment »

In this months article on Mitt Romney, Ohio Astrology espouses that Gov Romney needs to simply believe in himself.

OHA:

As Neptune transits Pisces, the two Republican Party front-runners for the presidential candidate have sun in Pisces – Mitt Romney and Rick Perry.

I’m sure no one in politics believes is this silly stuff called astrology, especially in the Republican Party. They are way, way too rational for such illogical nonsense.

If they were interested in this astrological nonsense, maybe they would find Neptune transiting the sun to be the needed extra dose of charisma that boosts their finely-coiffed, beautifully-chiseled candidates. Neptune is about spirituality and merging, losing boundaries with others and dissolving into the whole. Its effect is one of otherworldliness and mystique.

Chuck Berry: Libra Sun w Pisces Moon

leave a comment »

Charles Edward Anderson “Chuck” Berry (born October 18, 1926) is an American guitarist, singer, and songwriter, and one of the pioneers of rock and roll music.  Chuck Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, with lyrics focusing on teen life and consumerism and utilizing guitar solos and showmanship that would be a major influence on subsequent rock music.[1]

A pioneer of rock music, Berry was a significant influence on the development of both the music and the attitude associated with the rock music lifestyle. With songs such as “Maybellene” (1955), “Roll Over Beethoven” (1956), “Rock and Roll Music” (1957) and “Johnny B. Goode” (1958), Chuck Berry refined and developed rhythm and blues into the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, with lyrics successfully aimed to appeal to the early teenage market by using graphic and humorous descriptions of teen dances, fast cars, high-school life, and consumer culture,[2] and utilizing guitar solos and showmanship that would be a major influence on subsequent rock music.[1] His records are a rich storehouse of the essential lyrical, showmanship and musical components of rock and roll; and, in addition to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, a large number of significant popular-music performers have recorded Berry’s songs.[2] Though not technically accomplished, his guitar style is distinctive – he incorporated electronic effects to mimic the sound of bottleneck blues guitarists, and drew on the influence of guitar players such as Charlie Christian, and T-Bone Walker,[2] to produce a clear and exciting sound that many later guitar musicians would acknowledge as a major influence in their own style.[51] In the film Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll! Eric Clapton states ‘If you wanna play rock and roll – or any upbeat number – and you wanted to take a guitar ride you would end up playing like Chuck…because there is very little other choice. There’s not a lot of other ways to play rock and roll other than the way Chuck plays it; he’s really laid the law down…” In 1992 Keith Richards told Best of Guitar Player “Chuck was my man. He was the one who made me say ‘I want to play guitar, Jesus Christ!’…Suddenly I knew what I wanted to do.” Berry’s showmanship has been influential on other rock guitar players, [57] particularly his one-legged hop routine,[58] and the “duck walk”,[59] which he first used as a child when he walked “stooping with full-bended knees, but with my back and head vertical” under a table to retrieve a ball and his family found it entertaining; he used it when “performing in New York for the first time and some journalist branded it the duck walk.”[60][61]

The rock critic Robert Christgau considers him “the greatest of the rock and rollers,”[62] while John Lennon said that “if you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry’.”[63] Ted Nugent said “If you don’t know every Chuck Berry lick, you can’t play rock guitar.”[64] Among the honors he has received, have been the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 1984,[65] the Kennedy Center Honors in 2000,[66] and being named seventh on Time Magazine‘s 2009 list of the 10 best electric guitar players of all-time.[67] On May 14, 2002, Chuck Berry was honored as one of the first BMI Icons at the 50th annual BMI Pop Awards. He was presented the award along with BMI affiliates Bo Diddley and Little Richard.[68]

Berry is included in several Rolling Stone “Greatest of All Time” lists. In September 2003, the magazine named him number 6 in their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”.[69] This was followed in November of the same year by his compilation album The Great Twenty-Eight being ranked 21st in the Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.[70] The following year, in March 2004, Berry was ranked fifth out of “The Immortals – The 100 Greatest Artists of All Time”.[6] In December 2004, six of his songs were included in the “Rolling Stone’s 500 Greatest Songs of All Time“, namely “Johnny B. Goode” (# 7), “Maybellene” (# 18), “Roll Over Beethoven” (# 97), “Rock and Roll Music” (#128), “Sweet Little Sixteen” (# 272) and “Brown Eyed Handsome Man” (# 374).[71] In June 2008, his song “Johnny B. Goode” ranked first place in the “100 Greatest Guitar Songs of All Time.”

Mr. Berry’s struggles with chemical addiction are well documented.

The combination of a Libra Sun sign and and a Pisces Moon sign produces a  very sensitive personality
with much breadth and scope. In their quiet, pensive way, they are always
watching, staring, observing, and mulling over in your mind what you have seen.  They
are extremely sensitive, and there is much more to you than ever really
meets the eye. Pisces is highly receptive and deep. They are quite timid for
social Libra, and most will mistake them as aloof or
distant. As suggested, the Libra influence pulls against this tendency because
it is the most sociable of signs. These contradictory pulls in their nature make them
very difficult for others to understand. Reserve and shyness seem your main
strengths. You are not a social hermit only because a core of strength within
you that urges you to become involved in life instead of sitting on the
sidelines. In group situations, unlike many Libra types, they don’t overwhelm
others with your polite charm and outgoing personality. Instead they express a
quiet, reserved manner that seems to take no effort on your part no matter how
much activity is going on around you. They seem to  have a genuine concern for others and
can convey this sypathy as well.  They are a superb listener. They are an idea people, visionries,
but not necessarily an idealist. They get along with moderate effort, relying on their
good sense. Perhaps a sixth sense helps you in many of your endeavors as they
can grasp abstractions and intricacies, both mentally and emotionally and effectively convey these emotional nuances and complexities.  They are good at guesses and always a good detective.

Many critics belive Johnny B Goode to be one of the Greatest Rock n Roll Songs of alltime:

Eugene O’Neil: Libra w Moon in Pisces

leave a comment »

Eugene O’Neill (October 16, 1888 – November 27, 1953) was among the foremost dramatists of the America theater in the first part of the 20thc .  He is a Nobel and Pulitzer Prize -winner whose plays portray tormented families and people torn between wealth and noble ideals. His poetically titled plays were among the first to introduce into American drama techniques of realism earlier associated with Russian playwright Anton Chekhov, Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, and Swedish playwright August Strindberg. His plays were among the first to include speeches in American vernacular and involve characters on the fringes of society, where they struggle to maintain their hopes and aspirations, but ultimately slide into disillusionment and despair. His plays include Beyond the Horizon (1920), Anna Christie (1921), Strange Interlude (1928) and the semi-autobiographical Long Day’s Journey Into Night (1956). His main concern was with the anguish and turmoil that wrack the spirits of hyper sensitive people like himself. Nearly all of his other plays involve some degree of tragedy and personal pessimism.

311 R Murdoch mocks Obama in his Daily

leave a comment »

Rupert Murdoch’s The Daily had some fun with the White House’s unveiling of President Obama’s long-form birth certificate.

On the heels of Obama’s press conference Wednesday, the News Corp iPad app led with a “front page” featuring Mike Scott’s illustration of Obama as Bruce Springsteen alongside the headline, “I WAS BORN IN THE U.S.A.”

 

The illustration is a take-off on Springsteen’s iconic 1984 album of the same name.

 

2011: Year of the Rabbitt According to Suzanne White

leave a comment »

The Chinese New Year begins on February 3rd this year, and runs through January 22nd, 2012. According to Suzane White,

In Rabbit years, life slows down. After the tumultuous and difficult Tiger year we lived through (or didn’t) in 2010,  we all need to decelerate. Nature must have planned it. Give people a horrible Tiger year,  full of war and pestilence, struggle, strife and illness. Then tender them a whole year to recover.

So let’s think of the Metal Rabbit Year as a 12 month long convalescent home for us troubled soldiers and hopeless cases. A recovery sanatorium for the unemployed and the over extended. Enter this Rabbit year on crutches and you will be comforted and cajoled, fed and clothed and perhaps even given a smashing new job.

Rabbits, you may remember, are sometimes called Cats. It depends on the culture. Vietnamese and some other small Asian countries use the Cat symbol. China uses Rabbit.

Whichever name you give to this peculiarly refined and prosperous sign, people born in Rabbit years are : discreet, virtuous, sociable, tactful, sensitive, companionable, solicitous, ambitious, prudent, tradition-bound and hospitable.

The bad news is that Rabbit people are also quite old-fashioned, a bit pedantic,  thin-skinned, devious, aloof, secretive, squeamish  and ever so hypochondriacal.

The Rabbit character is an odd mix. Rabbits are cautious, family-oriented stay-at-homes. They love their interiors, adore puttering in their gardens and enjoy inviting small groups of well-brought up people to share tea, cucumber sandwiches and Scrabble. They despise conflict, prefer to do things in their own private space and remain above and outside of the madding crowd. You won’t catch many Rabbits boogying down at the local after hours club. Too  many germs and noise.

So what does this Metal Rabbit year have in store for us Earthlings? Read more @Suzzane White’s column @ Astrology.com:

313: March 13, 1781: Uranus Discovered

leave a comment »

Sir William Herschel announced its discovery on March 13, 1781, expanding the known boundaries of the Solar System for the first time in modern history. Uranus was also the first planet discovered with a telescope.

Uranus is similar in composition to Neptune, and both are of different chemical composition than the larger gas giants Jupiter and Saturn. As such, astronomers sometimes place them in a separate category called “ice giants.” Uranus’s atmosphere, while similar to Jupiter and Saturn’s in its primary composition of hydrogen and helium, contains more “ices” such as water, ammonia and methane, along with traces of hydrocarbons.[12] It is the coldest planetary atmosphere in the Solar System, with a minimum temperature of 49 K (–224 °C). It has a complex, layered cloud structure, with water thought to make up the lowest clouds, and methane thought to make up the uppermost layer of clouds.[12] In contrast, the interior of Uranus is mainly composed of ices and rock.[11]

March 10-18: Indian Sign: Revati (nakshatra)

leave a comment »

Revati or Revathi (Devanagari: रेवती) is the twenty-seventh nakshatra in Hindu astronomy, corresponding to ζ Piscium.[1] It is ruled by Puṣan,one of the 12 Ādityas. According to the beliefs of traditional electional astrology, Revati is a Sweet or Delicate nakshatra, meaning that while Revati has the most influence, it is best to begin working on things of physical beauty like music and jewellery .[2]

Revati is symbolized by fish (often a pair of fish). It is also associated with the sea.[3

Jyotiṣa states that the constellation through which the moon is passing during the time of a person’s birth has an effect on the personality traits later in life.[4] The moon in Revati indicates a person who is sweet, caring, responsible and who cares for other people. People born under Revati are sociable and love humanity and society, and are protective and nourishing of others. They are devoted to loved ones, spiritual, artistic and creative. Disappointments in their early life creates compassion and forgiveness for others, and it is said that they will reap karmic rewards in the next life for their caring actions.

This nakshatra indicates a journey, and may in fact represent our final journey from this life to the next, being the last and final nakshatra. It grants protection for safe travels. They are sweet caring responsible loving friends. They nourish and care for others. They have been known to provide foster care for others, children or animals. They have an affinity or love towards small animals. They love humanity and society. They love to be social because they sincerely love connecting to other people. They don’t have a mean or jealous bone in their body. There is a love of fine arts and they can be creative as well. Their caring for others can lead to co-dependency. There may be disappointment early in life, but this developed their compassion and sincere forgiveness of others. They are a bit weak and may be prone to childhood illnesses. They are mystics with complete faith in their beliefs and in the goodness of humanity. With their love of water, they usually benefit from living by the water. There is a deep devotion and faith to God. They are protected in all their travels especially the journey from this world to the next.

Last Time Uranus Was in Aries Earthquake in VANUATU

leave a comment »

The Vanuatu earthquake of May 27, 2010 occurred on or near the plate boundary  between the Australia and Pacific plates in the Coral Sea region of the southwest Pacific.  In the region of the earthquake, the Australia plate moves to the east-northeast  with respect to the Pacific plate at a velocity of approximately 91 mm/year.  The Australia plate thrusts under the Pacific plate at the New Hebrides trench  and dips to the east-northeast. The May 27 earthquake’s location, depth,  and focal mechanism are consistent with the earthquake having occurred as  thrust faulting associated with subduction along the Australia-Pacific plate boundary.

311 March 11 DOB Discoverer of Neptune: Urbain Jean Joseph Le Verrier

leave a comment »

Urbain Jean Joseph Le Verrier (French pronunciation: [yʁbɛ̃ ʒɑ̃ ʒɔzɛf lə vɛʁje]) (11 March 1811 – 23 September 1877) was a French mathematician who specialized in celestial mechanics and is best known for his part in the discovery of Neptune.

Urbain Jean Joseph Le Verrier discovered on September 23, 1846 and as it takes 165 years to go around the Sun, it is only recently that it has returned to its discovery position, which was 26 degrees Aquarius. One year after its discovery Neptune entered the sign it was later to have rulership over… Pisces. We have just experienced a Neptune birthday, and on April 4, 2011 this enormous planet will enter Pisces once again. This is going to be quite an event.The discovery of Neptune coincided with worldwide social upheaval, which was mostly peaceful. In 1848 the Communist Manifesto was published, which was a response to the inhuman conditions in expanding cities where new factories were sprouting as a result of steam power and industrialization. This was the period when Charles Dickens wrote his novels of social realism, and social democratic demonstrations shook the capitals of Europe. This was also a time when painters like Renoir, Gauguin, Van Gogh, Cezanne and Monet made their impressionist paintings, expanding the world of fantasy and imagination. On the scientific front Darwin’s theory of evolution completely undermined Christian tradition. The first photographs were taken, ultimately leading to the coming world of the movies. Anesthetics were used for the first time in hospitals. Opium became a socially acceptable drug. The accepted reality of the day was undermined and new spiritual, emotional and political realities took form.

Nepetune is the eighth and farthest planet from the Sun in the Solar System. Named for the Roman god of the sea, it is the fourth-largest planet by diameter and the third largest by mass. Neptune is 17 times the mass of Earth and is slightly more massive than its near-twin Uranus, which is 15 times the mass of Earth but not as dense.[12] On average,
Discovered on September 23, 1846,[1] Neptune was the first planet found by mathematical prediction rather than by empirical observation.

For many astrologers, Neptune (Neptune symbol.svg) is the ruling planet of Pisces. In Roman mythology, Neptune is the god of the sea, and the deep, ocean blue color of the planet Neptune reflects this.[original research?] Its glyph is taken directly from Neptune’s trident, symbolizing the curve of spirit being pierced by the cross of matter. Neptune takes 165 years to orbit the Sun, spending approximately 14 years (13.75) in each sign of the zodiac. Neptune was discovered in 1846.[citation needed]

Astrologically, modern Western astrologers associate the planet Neptune with idealism and compassion, but also with illusion, confusion, and deception. Neptune governs hospitals, prisons, mental institutions, and any other place, such as a monastery, that involves a retreat from society. Its appearance coincided with the discovery of anesthetics and hypnotism. In political terms, Neptune was linked to the rise of nationalist movements throughout Europe in countries like Germany, Italy, Hungary, Ireland, and Serbia, seeking independence for their nations inspired by an idealized past of legend. It was also linked to the rise of socialism and the beginnings of the welfare state. Neptune coincided with the utopian ideals of Communism, when Marx and Engels first published ‘The Communist Manifesto’ in 1848.[citation needed]

The planet Neptune

In art, the impressionist movement began a trend away from literal representation, to one based on the subtle, changing moods of light and color. In medicine, Neptune is seen to be particularly associated with the thalamus, the spinal canal, and severe or mysterious illnesses and neuroses. Neptune is considered by modern astrologers to be co-ruler of the twelfth house with Jupiter.

Nowadays, modern astrologers consider Neptune the ruler of Pisces; traditionally, Jupiter was the one considered as the ruler of Pisces, even though some modern astrologers consider Jupiter a co-ruler of Pisces. Some astrologers do not believe that Neptune rules any particular sign, although they may use the planet in interpretation.
