President Obama says that the stars are aligned to pass his health care agenda this year. Well, we are in a unique position to see if the President is correct! The House of Representatives pledged today to pass landmark health care legislation by July 31st.
Obama may be on to something. The triple conjunction of Jupiter, Chiron and Neptune will still be a tight formation as the three planets retrograde together within four degrees until early September, putting the pressure on all systems (psychological, social, governmental) to heal and evolve. Saturn (convention) and Uranus (change) will no longer be in alignment, minimizing the partisan opposition that was so powerful from the fall into early in 2009 with the two were tightly in opposition.
Obama has interesting planetary cycles during the month of July that will assist him in passing legislation. First is a square from Mars to Uranus in his chart – this can be a time of irritation and reckless behavior but it can also provide the pressure needed to stimulate change. His progressed Sun makes an exact sextile to the Midheaven in his chart, the point where we express our Self in the public arena. This is an extremely favorable event that signifies not only success, but also that the result will positively reflect on Obama’s public image.
It will be an interesting dance to design and implement a new health care design that serves the majority of Americans while not bleeding the treasuries even more. But Saturn remains in Virgo, the sign of health care, through the end of the year so this is the time to make it happen!
