In November, 2004, the nation will once again make an important decision regarding it's own future. The people will stand up and have their vote counted, and the leadership of the country will be decided for the next four years. What will that vote be, and how will it turn out? Inquiring minds want to know.
The Web has earned the successful nod of Athena for every presidential election since the Reagan years when we started examining this topic. We have been fortunate enough to correctly interpret heaven's will and make a judgement as to who will be the next president of the United States. At the end of this column we will make our pick.
Shortly after 9/11, we looked at the progressed map of the US and made some statements about the future. From the Oct. 12, 2001 Web column:
"In the US chart, the progressed Sun entered Aquarius in the spring of 1975, and a new spirit of inventive enterprise began to emerge. Technological futures rose together with pocket calculators. This trend would come to command international markets, but with the conjunction of this Sun to the national Moon at 27 degrees of Aquarius on October 25th, 2001, we stand at the end of this cycle, with no real impetus to new growth for the next three years. Like the Bismarck, we have taken a torpedo to our rudder, and no longer have responsive control of our own marketing direction. Our trade policies will begin to flounder. Huge amounts of our national resources are being channelled into protecting airports and borders, and we are developing new technologies for weaponry and information gathering. None of these expenses give back to the community, save through defense industry related jobs. Still more money is being spent to reenergize our economy; but these objectives will not realize their intended goal."
"After the Sun conjuncts the Moon (initiating a New Moon cycle), it's finished making all the aspects it will make while passing through Aquarius. It has no more work to do until it enters Pisces in late 2004. This is what is known as a Void of Course period. Characteristically, it is a time when one lets one's guard down, and our focus tends to lapse."
"Under V/C energy, things don't go as planned. What you think will happen, organize or engage goes off track, and new, unexpected directions emerge. As we listen to proposed governmental invectives, know that they won't turn out like that... Under afflicted Aquarian alignments, we fight for peace or use inhumanitarian means to bring about a new humanity, and other oxymorons. It's an exciting time, partly because people are nuts."
While these comments paint a fairly decent picture of Void of Course activity, there is one component which we neglected to mention at the time of the writing, and that is that as the Sun leaves Aquarius and enters Pisces, the leadership of this country will undergo a change. The Sun rules the king or boss, and in the month of the elections, it is entering a new sign, signalling a new start or beginning, different from what has gone before. What this translates to is simple. The stars suggest that the incumbent will not be reelected. It has been obvious to the author for a long time that this would be the case, but we thought you might want to know.
