This is Obama’s natal Neptune square his Sun at its worst…. when he tries to be all things to all people, he may serve no one. The Neptune can indicate a tendency to seem weak or ineffectual when he’s trying to come from a position of leadership and strength.
What’s up, Barack??? Choosing Rick Warren (a vocal champion of California’s Propostion 8, but still an advocate for education, the environment and eliminating hunger) for the inaugural invocation in tandem with Joseph Lowrey (known for his civil rights track record) for the benediction seems to be an attempt to court the religious right while honoring his roots.
The bottom line is right now progressives are feeling the smack of this statement on election night: “And to those Americans whose support I have yet to earn – I may not have won your vote, but I hear your voices, I need your help, and I will be your President too.”
My frequent AstroChatter Radio guest, Monica Starr has some fiery thoughts on this at AstrologyMundo. And even though it’s not directly on topic, I want to provide the link for the Jon Stewart/Mike Huckabee discussion on gay marriage.
Thinking about an old post of mine, this choice seems inauspicious considering the Scorpio moon on Inauguration Day.
I totally agree with you! It’s too bad that this man whose often praised for his diplomacy could eventually defeat himself & mission by being too diplomatic. But in addition to the Neptune square I also blame his Aquarius Ascendent. From my interaction with Aqua energy … it’s just too all-pleasing as it tries trying to court & understand every view and maintain harmony. Aqua = the ultimate diplomat.
His Leo energy is sooo doused by all this …
Sorry about the late reply! Believe it or not, I’m just finding time to figure out the comments part of my blogging… since I am an Aquarius and live with an Aquarian Moon, I have to say, Aquarians are not the ultimate diplomats (that would probably go to Libra or strong Venusians).
Ultimately, an Aquarian thinks the world would be a lot better place if everyone thought the way he does. If you think his Leo energy is doused, it’s got more to do with the Neptune square which may soften his delivery at times and make him less transparent.
I think this has to do with Neptune in Aqua – blurring liberties, meddling religidiots. (I respect everyone’s right to believe in whatever, obviously since I’m here, astrology is doing a lot for me. “Spirituality” means withholding your own kin’s liberties ? That is just an excuse for crimes.). Uranus going into Aries & squaring Pluto in Cap might bring fireworks. It will happen around the same time Neptune goes into Pisces. Hopefully, spirituality will free itself from religion, politics and interference with science, education and freedom.

Another Neptune in Aqua thing I find relevant – http://freethinker.co.uk/2008/12/19/islington-council-did-not-discriminate-against-christian-registar/. I’m pointing out the same thing I did in their comments – a black woman blinded by discrimination.
I’ve also accidentally encountered a woman on the internet who is a … “believer in headcovering”. I don’t even dare enter a christian forum. The last peek I took at one of those, I saw someone wrote “you either believe in spermatozoids or in god” to someone who was seeking advice for her infertility. I closed the internet browser the next second.
Also, I saw a video on Youtube, about police brutality against some ppl manifesting (peacefully) for something which wasn’t mentioned – who do they shoot ? The comments below the video ? See for yourself : http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=police+shoot+woman&search_type=&aq=0&oq=police+shoot+w
Well, judging from statistics from so-called democratic countries with political leaders like Obama, who try to “balance” things out … Throwing money at churces while shelters are overcrowded ?? wtf ? Why do they think thy are filled with women ? The last 2000 have nothing to do with it ?
The last time I checked, we have rights in spite of religion and no instructions for new technology or medicine were in religious books. Priests get invited to political events and are presented to the public as those who should be regarded highly ? Not scientists, not teachers ? I can’t wait for Neptune to peek up speed !
