The Politics of Dancing (with Astrology)

This post was written by Anna

It’s no secret that the Ronald and Nancy Reagan consulted astrologers during their time in the White House. It’s also no secret that Barack Obama kinda-sorta made fun of them for their White Housework with astrologers and mediums  (I believe the direct quote went something along the lines of Obama not “want[ing] to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about, you know, doing any seances.”

However remiss President Obama was about consulting an astrologer, perhaps he should be changing his mind. According to Susan Miller, a popular astrologer and columnist, this summer will be a favorable time for the Obama administration. Case in point: His health care reform bill has already passed. And according to Ms. Miller, that is just the start of a powerful few months.

What do you think? Should President Obama be consulting the stars? Do politics have any room for astrology? (Or any other job, for that matter?)

Certainly we have seen the Current Saturn/Uranus Opposition play out in the Health Care Debate no? Personally I would be all for it; Mundane Astrology was after all the first use of Astrology. I would not see recommend that use so much in a predictive capacity, more in the terms of a Political Weather Forcast?

Unfortunately … Probably not going to happen in my life time. Blessings, BB.

Yes, President Obama *should* consult the stars!
However, he should do so quietly (which I do hate saying). Reagan got a pass for it because 1) those on the left generally wouldn’t be offended as much as those on the right, and 2) those on the right didn’t want to sacrifice their hero, so they let it slide. Given the poisonous atmosphere in politics today, and the “gotcha!” nature of it, Obama should do it (for the good of his presidency and of the nation), but be quiet about it. I remember there was a mini-storm at his inauguration when he said “we are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and non-believers.” Some religious folk took offense that some groups, especially the non-believers, were included in there.

I would classify this research under the Department of “Depth Interior”. Where research takes place on the inner & outer depths of the universe with an attempt to draw a reasonable correlation. In other words examine our deep connection to “All” things. While probing the collective unconscious.
