Unexpected news on Sunday, (updated below) of Hillary Clinton's health-related problem made possible for the world to see via a video, taken by a casual bystander, subsequently spread around the net like dandelion wisps on the wind, could be the first of several unexpected happenings during the remainder of this long and taxing election season.

On watching the video, I immediately recalled my post of around a month ago when I wrote here:
Expectedly...or not

If something unexpected should cause change, on the Democratic candidate's side - for instance: Hillary Clinton's health issues? If such issues do exist, and were to become more obvious, calls could arise for more detailed medical examination with publication of results. New revelations regarding her e-mail debacle or the Clinton Foundation shenanigans, more damaging to Hillary Clinton than any before (via Wikileaks)? If circumstances in either scenario were serious enough, her chosen VP, Tim Kaine would come into more intense focus, perhaps acting as candidate. Or, the DNC might decide to choose, as replacement, someone for whom public votes have been cast, or someone of proven ability at national level: Bernie Sanders, Joe Biden? I doubt the DNC would ever countenance Senator Bernie Sanders as candidate, no matter how many states he carried in the primaries, Wall Street and the oligarchs who rule the DNC wouldn't allow it. Joe Biden though could, I suspect, improve slightly the Dems' chances in the General. Fewer voters, especially former Bernie Sanders supporters, hate him with the same intensity they hate, or distrust, Hillary Clinton. Tim Kaine, though...not so sure, nobody really knows him. A more likely scenario, should some unexpected event(s) befall Clinton, would be to somehow, if at all possible with the current president's influence, push her through the difficulties and into the presidency, then worry about other issues arising.

Given that Secretary Clinton appeared to recover well after spending some time at her daughter's apartment on Sunday, proving perhaps that what happened was, as reported, due simply to heat exhaustion, was easily remedied by rest in a cool environment. Alternatively, and more seriously, the event could have been a symptom of some known chronic, and possibly progressive, ailment of which her family, aides and the Secret Service are all well aware, and equipped to deal with. If the second of those speculations were to be correct, I'd guess that the (highlighted) outcome mentioned in the last sentence of the clip from my August post would apply.

No sooner had I finished drafting this post than I saw an afternoon report in the New York Times updating the situation - clip:

“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia,” said Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, who examined Mrs. Clinton at her house in Chappaqua on Sunday. “She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”

Whether her problem is exactly as described, or there is more to it than the people are being told, I do wish Secretary Clinton a quick return to better health. I'm no fan of hers politically, will not vote for her in November, but simply as one "old gal" observing another "old gal" - I hope she will get better soon, health-wise at least!

It's Music Monday - staying in tune with the unexpected:

mike said... has changed Hillary's tob to "stroke of midnight" the bio section under her natal chart:

Anecdotal tob, but placing Saturn conjunct her Asc in the first house, with Mars-Pluto conjunct her Asc in the twelfth house, all squaring Mercury-Venus, does seem fitting of her purported personality. With this tob chart, Saturn is the ruler of her sixth house of health. She's receiving a nice grand trine from transiting Mars and Uranus to her natal Saturn, so recuperative ability is there.

The upcoming lunar eclipse at 24* Virgo-Pisces forms a grand square with Donald's Sun-N Node-Moon, between his first, fourth, seventh, and tenth houses. Transiting Mars is upon his Moon, too.

Hillary may have some momentary health concerns, but Donald will be facing something much more serious and longer-lasting.

mike ~ Hey! Never mind Hillary - are you feeling any better yourself ?

Thanks for the information on HRC's time of birth. I read something yesterday where a time of 2.18 was being thrown around (not sure if a/m/ or p/m/ though.
Will go take a look at Astrotheme as you suggest.

Donald Trump's good health will probably last out this presidential race, but beyond that seems to be in doubt. A massive loss could affect him psychologically, and that eventually takes a toll physically (Speculation only!)

I'm even more in awe, now, of Bernie's health and strength during his primary efforts - he's older than both Clinton and Trump!

Thanks for asking. Not significantly improving. Gastroenterologist appointment at 7:45 tomorrow morning. I'm in the Medicare world now, so lots of deductibles and co-pays I'll have to sort through. I'm 95% certain my gall bladder requires surgical removal, so if you don't hear from me, I'm in the hospital. I need to make provisions for GiGi.

mike (again) ~ So sorry to read that! Wish we were nearer to help out with GiGi!
Perhaps with new technological advances major surgery might be avoided - keep hoping!
Please let us have an update whenever you feel up to doing so. ((( Hugs!)))
