Meet the man behind the man. The picture you see is that of Zbigniew Brzezinski. It’s a hard name to type over and over again, so for the sake of brevity and keeping with The Obama brand, let’s refer to him from here on out as “Z Biggy.”
Z Biggy is the key player, no, not a player, the general, the strategist behind Barack Obama’s overall management, foreign policy and plan. The David’s, Plouffe and Axelrod might be moving the deck chairs around when it comes to the campaign, but it was Z Biggy that whisked Obama away on his European tour. It was Z Biggy that opened doors, made the stadia available, proferred hand to open hand.I
t was a masterful turn by the cagey veteran of The Carter years, almost single-handedly coronating Barack before the election ever began. In the eyes of Europe, where Obama looked quite at ease with the likes of Gordon Brown, Andrea Merkel and Count Sarkozy, he was the man. Then there was that spectacular stop in Berlin, where John F Kennedy once, single-handedly eased the guilt and shame of the German people with one of the great speeches of the modern era and Obama was channeling JFK, morphing the meme and appropriating the aura. He can thank Z Biggy, the director for the star turn.
If elected, this will be the man that will whisper and guide Barack Obama’s every move on the geo-political stage. I could dwell on his terrestrial details, like the fact that he’s Polish and doesn’t like The Russians, nor The Chinese very much, or that he’s a sharp billed Hawk, a war bird amidst the a Democratic party of doves. I could also tell you about how he was the master-mind behind the Afghan-Russia conflict, arming and organizing those Afghani freedom fighters known as The Taliban.
Yes, that’s Z Biggy with a young Osama Bin Laden (aka Tim Osman).
The cold war got very chilly while Carter was President and Z Biggy stalked The Big Bear with a whip-like snarl. The US even boycotted the 1980 Olympics in Moscow due to The Afghan/Russia conflict.
Those are just a few headlines from the Earth version of Z Biggy. But what about the stars? What do they say about the man behind the man? How will the thousand-points-of-light affixed in the sky impact about the days, months and years ahead for the restless cold warrior?Z Biggy is an Aries, born on March 28th, in 1928, 7 degrees. He’s ready for action, but with a conjunction between Mercury and Venus in Pisces, he is guided by intuition as much as instinct. With that type of conjunction, he can read a room with X-Ray vision, to the point of even merging with particular personalities if the moment and need suited him. Add a very psychic moon in Cancer at 0 degrees and this is a man that understands deep cycles, the ebb and flow of events and history itself. Couple that with Pluto in Cancer and Z Biggy is deeply invested in legacy, not just his own, but his personal story against the backdrop of time and history itself.
However, with Pluto about to enter Capricorn, it will oppose his natal Moon in an exact opposition for the next five years. This indicates a titanic split in the psyche where the pull towards nostalgia (Cancer) and the tug towards achievment and power (Capricorn) will cause this man to be in the middle of major internal and external power struggles. Remember, The US is a Cancer country with Venus and Jupiter in Cancer at 3 and 5 degrees respectively, so Z Biggy has fond feelings for this place. For him, this is as home as it gets and he’s obviously developed quite a network as a result. But even though he has an espirit-des-corps with us, Pluto is about to severely test his capacity to take the land and people into account.
He also shares some aspects with our new, old friend, Sarah Palin, with Mars in Aquarius and Jupiter in Aries. I have no doubt that whenver Palin talks tough about Russia, she gets Z Biggy’s blood a movin’ south. These two might even have a closer bond than he and Obama as they share an almost exact conjunction with Mars in Aquarius and Jupiter. If Obama wins (and I think he will, provided we have an election), Z Biggy would LOVE to tap into Palin’s passionate, patriotic fervor when it comes to those rowdy neighbors of hers. He also has Uranus in Aries and this is very important as we’ll soon feel the anarchic impact of the electric warrior’s arrival quite soon. His natal Uranus in Aries will be activated as a result of the return/conjuntion and in the light of this next revelation, it’s a critical transit for all of us, not just him.
You see, this man has no planets in Earth in his chart. None. Which means that even though he might be able to intuit a connection to the planet, he can’t feel it in his cells, this is an alien landscape for him in some ways, a man more at home with the concept of the planet, than the planet itself. For a guy with a grudge against Mother Russia, getting tugged on heavily by Pluto and soon to be lit up like a christmas tree by Uranus, no connection to Earth is a fairly important detail.
Uranus is sudden and explosive, destroys old orders and Aries is relentless in it’s pursuit of it’s goals. This is the energy that will be moving through the bio-circuitry of Z Biggy. Now some might say that with void of Earth, he would be more inclined to want to feel connected and be a part of this plane of existence. My response would be that perhaps his lifelong pursuit of mastery on a global scale is just that. However, it could also be someone with a decidedly detached perspective about life in general.
So that being said, when you are in the most private act of excercising your sacred right to choose, just before Diebold helps you, in case you got it wrong, that you’re not just electing The Man but the man behind the man.
