The October 16, 2012 debate between Obama and Romney took place as the Moon and Mercury moved through the sign of Scorpio. Pluto in Capricorn squared by Uranus in Aries ruled the debate.
Despite the fact the Pluto/Uranus square began with a hint of things to come in August of 2010. The intensity of the square gained momentum in April 2011 continuing to influence the economic, political and job situation in the United States horoscope. The planetary aspect indicated the democratic party’s socialistic approach to government demands more control of each state’s governing decisions along with greater control of the people as they promise to give more to the people. It is interesting to note that when a country is considered to be a world power, history has a habit of showing us a political party, or a political leader who decides more control, laws and big government is required.
When a strong, subtle square takes place with two slow moving planets the influence affects the very foundation of the country. The change put forth is not in the countries interest when one political party and its leader no longer adheres to the principles which made the country a great nation.
The square has brought the country to its knees, and as the people of the United States get ready to vote November 6 the planetary aspects indicate the anger, fear and frustration of the people. As an astrologer the divide amongst republicans and democrats has separated friends and family, students and parents, the have and the have-nots. The anger and hate projected toward others has taken the great country of the United States of America and divided its people. The country has taken a huge step backwards.
The latest show of hatred showed up on Twitter with death threats to Governor Mitt Romney immediately after the October 16 debate. Are those who want to kill so filled with hatred they cannot educate themselves to work towards a better life. Are they so filled with insecurity and anger they do not see their potential in life. Is it just easier for them to hide behind hatred, fear, and the excuse of racism. Is it easier then learning history and paying attention to real life problems. Or is it just plain easy to act stupid.
The death threats indicate a greater problem in America.
When did Government replace basic life lessons! When did the media sell out and responsible journalism become a three ring circus! What happened to teaching America’s history and everything positive it accomplished! What happened to parenting, discipline and love!
Why has God become a question mark under the democratic leadership!
As Uranus and Pluto continue to square off in the heavens the question of who we are, what we believe in and how we behave in life will not only change the United States of America, but it will change the world we live on over the next five years.
