I LIKE IKE
The wings of the Owl alighted briefly in Hartford this past week to give a presentation on US history as seen through stellar eyes. During the presentation, I was reminded of a lesson right out of Astro 101 on Libra, our sign of the month. Even a beginner can take this one out for a spin.
Libra is the sign of the scales, and it’s implication is balance and justice. Legal issues on the news often begin with this image over the newscaster’s shoulder. Those that have planets or angles in their chart in this sign will be more inclined to see the world through the eyes of equilibrium, as being a sought after goal to be a model for society to fall into.
One Libran philosophy, comin’ right up!
This is a portion of a speech given by a president who not only was a Libra, but had (in longitudinal order) Mercury, Vesta, the Sun, Moon and Uranus ALL in Libra.
This means he thought a lot like a Libra.
Add to the mix a Grand AIR Trine (Mercury 2 Libra, Jupiter at 2 Aquarius and the Midheaven at 3 Gemini) and you should have a clear, balanced thinker.
Here is a segment of his speech to the American public just a few days before he left office. As you will quickly gather, it’s all about striving for balance…
“…each proposal must be weighed
in the light of a broader consideration;
the need to maintain
balance in and among the national programs,
balance between the private and the public economy,
balance between the costs and the hoped for advantages,
balance between the clearly necessary
and the comfortably desirable,
balance between our essential requirements as a nation
and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual,
balance between the actions of the moment
and the national welfare for the future.”
“Good judgment seeks balance and progress.
Lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration.”
Now you know.
