In the interests of fairness and balance I guess I should post something exclusively about Hillary Clinton, rather than forever mentioning her in comparison to Bernie, during this primary season.
Poking around in my blog archives I found this, it was an ever so slightly off-topic snip found in a post about Evita, the woman, Eva Peron and the musical show based on her life. Extract from the post follows:
I came across something loosely linked to the Eva Peron story at British astrologer Marjorie Orr's website in a forum there. [Note: I'm sorry, but the link I posted in 2008 is now defunct].
Under the heading "USA anti-women", Marjorie Orr discusses women in power. I took the liberty of copying an extract. [Sadly the full context, as part of a discussion, is lost due to link being no longer live.]
The extract is interesting on another level - Clinton-wise! But that's another story, still to be told. I wonder if anyone will write a musical about that story, in years to come?
"What also seems relevant is Saturn Neptune. I was surprised when I did the research for my book the Astrological History of the World to find that Saturn Neptune is significant in women's rise to greater influence - for astrological reasons I still can't quite fathom - but it certainly was around in periods of women coming to power and workers demanding their rights. Perhaps Saturn Neptune's drive in its best aspect for a fairer society - with emotional Neptune eroding the masculine (Saturn) power base. There was a Saturn Neptune conjunction when Elizabeth I was crowned (Taurus) and again when Elizabeth II was crowned (Libra); a Saturn Neptune square when Queen Victoria was crowned and a wide square when Maggie Thatcher was elected PM. Indira Gandhi became the first Indian woman PM on a Saturn Neptune trine and Benazir Bhutto became the first woman to be Pakistan's PM on a Saturn Neptune conjunction (Capricorn).
Looking at the charts of these countries which have produced women rulers they all have strongish Saturn Neptune aspects natally. The UK 1066 has a Saturn Neptune trine; the UK 1801 has a very central Saturn Neptune square. Both the India 1877 and 1947 charts have Saturn Neptune sextiles as does Pakistan. And Argentina which produced Eva Peron has a Saturn Neptune conjunction natally. Israel also has a Saturn Neptune sextile natally and a 10th house Moon. They elected Golda Meir as PM in 1969 though not on a Sat Nep transit.
The 2012 next Presidential Election has a Saturn Neptune trine; 2016 a square; 2020 a sextile and the next Saturn Neptune conjunction is in 2025 just after the 2024 election. But it may just not be in the nature of the USA to have a woman at the helm".
Interesting, but I feel sure there are arguments to the contrary! As mentioned, at present we have a Neptune-Saturn square going on, Saturn is in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces, both signs ruled traditionally by Jupiter, both mutable signs - not sure whether that'd be at all relevant here, but mutable does mean open to change!
Anyway, as far as these observations relate to 2016 - we shall soon see!
