I can’t help but look at Nancy Pelosi’s renegade trip to Syria in light of the recent Full Moon in Libra. Libra is the sign of diplomacy and relationship building, and the Full Moon, of which we are still basking in its shadow, made a trine to Pluto which generates transformation and powerful change.
The foreign policy of George Bush consists of ignoring nations that you don’t agree with and bullying those that you do agree with, and most thinking people agree that this has not been an effective strategy. The contrast between Nancy Pelosi’s trips to the Middle East, where she encouraged a dialogue between nations, and that of Condoleeza Rice which consisted more of bullying and criticism, was striking.
Also under the Full Moon, the British government quietly handed back to Iran a political prisoner in exchange for the release of British Sailors by the government of Iran. In my view, this was a lovely example of how a little give and take can solve an immediate issue and make everyone look like heroes.
