The only person more quiet than Barack Obama in the aftermath of The Palin nomination has been Joe Biden. Well, let me clarify that. Biden did share that he thought that, “Hilary is more qualified to be vice president than he is.”
What are we to conclude from this?
Earlier in this series, we looked at the aspects of Joe Biden and Sarah Palin, especially as it relates to the upcoming debate. What stood out about Biden’s chart is that two of his key planets, Venus and The Sun, are both conjunct in Scorpio, in his twelfth house. I stated that the Joe Biden that the world sees is not the Joe Biden that he stares back at in the mirror each day. There’s a lot about Joe Biden that we are not privvy to. Venus just over his Sun at 28 degrees in the 12th house indicates that Biden traffics in secret relationships and clandestine affairs. If someone wanted the consumate backroom deal maker, this aspect would obviously strengthen those skills. However, if they wanted full disclosure and transparency, Biden would prove to less than forthcoming in any circle other than his most intimate. So the question is, what is this man doing right now? Is he making moves and brokering deals at this point to slide out of the VP position? Is this “The October Surprise” that many people are talking about? Are the dems getting ready to replace Biden with Hilary to apply counterforce to the Palin nomination and re-claim some of the lost female voters that they are obviuosly seeing moving to the right now?
It’s no wonder that Biden has high praise for Hilary. In Hilary’s chart, Mercury in Scorpio is at 21 degrees, in an exact conjunction with Biden’s own Mercury at the same degree! These two communicate. . . a lot. They also see the world from very similar perspectives. It could even be said that with this conjunction, they are of one mind. Scorpio is all about power, it’s acquistion and application. Mercury in Scorpio conveys a penetrating mind that is always seeking to understand the motivation of others, using that info towards it’s own advantage. It’s the sign/alingment of secrets. Could these two already be in discussion about Biden stepping down? With such a dramatic swing taking place, if it’s not out in the open in the Obama camp with these two, we can almost be assured that Biden and Hilary have already gone down this path. They are already, more than likely in agreement base on their conjunction, they simply have to come to an accord on the conditions–the term has been set.
Looking ahead in October, Mercury goes retrograde on the 24th of September. With a Scorpio ascendant, Clinton has Libra on her twelfth house cusp, the house of . . . you guessed it . . . secrets.
Mark this day on your calendar; October 9th.
On October 9th, Mercury will move backwards onto an exact conjunction with Hilary’s natal Neptune in Libra in her 11th house. Even though this would be post Biden/Palin debate, it could very well signal Hilary’s replacing Biden on the ticket. What would it mean for Obama, because if this takes place, it will not be is decision. He and his handlers, David’s Plouffe and Axelrod, along with Howard Dean wll have made the call. It would be a monumental risk, and certainly viewed as a last ditch attempt to re-energize and reclaim the alpha status in the upcoming election. Obama would not easily do this, with his Leo Sun, he’s proud and wants to be center stage–this would not sit well with his royal, Leo, temperment. However, as we have seen in The Hopewell chart, Obama has Neptune in Scorpio on his ascendant and all is not what it seems either with him as well. But whether it’s a Scorpio Biden or Scorpio Hilary, Obama seems destined to share this ticket with consumate deal makers, leathery survivors of the beltway jungle. October may hold a surprise for the rest of us, but for Barack, Hilary and Joe, the surprise might already be a Scorpionic secret that they are just putting the final touches to.
