On Predictions and Presidents

There have been plentiful posts written by blogger-astrologers about the entry of Pluto into Capricorn which happened this last Friday, January 25th. Reading all the astrological information about this important sign change, I've pondered the many words of wisdom and predictions about Pluto in Capricorn, but it wasn't until last evening as I was listening to Coast To Coast AM and the guest, John Hogue, that I had my 'aha' moment.
John was speaking of the possible entrance into the presidential race of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Listening to John talk about Bloomberg is when it hit me! Bloomberg is so Pluto in Capricorn! Of course!
Pluto is symbolized by corporations, big business, and powerful men who already have lots of money and power--all of which fits Michael Bloomberg who is considered one of the world's richest people according to Wikipedia.
Even though Bloomberg has repeatedly denied he's entering the race, Pluto in Capricorn suggests he would fit the role. Even if he decides to run as vice-president (apparently he could finance this with his own money), this symbolism still works.
Born on Feb. 14th, 1942, he was born with the Sun and Moon in Aquarius according to Astrodatabank. He has a Mars/Saturn conjunction in his 10th house of Career. Mars and Saturn in conjunction has been described as having one foot on the gas pedal and one foot on the brake all the time. It's a very stressful aspect to have in one's chart, and in my experience observing those who have this aspect, they can surprise one by suddenly shifting to full speed ahead or suddenly putting on the brakes. Add this aspect to his Aquarian stellium in his 7th house, and we may have to wait til the last moment to see what he chooses to do!
Will the upcoming Solar Eclipse at 17 degrees Aquarius on February 6th conjunct his Natal Moon on the same degree bring him to a decision? Time will tell.
"Every act, thought, and choice adds to the permanent mosaic: Our decisions ripple through the universe of consciousness to affect the lives of all. Every act or decision made that supports life, supports all life, including our own."~David R. Hawkins
