July 24 horoscopes are below this weekly commentary.

THE REPUBLICAN CONVENTION

I wrote at the beginning of the year on the Republican Party Convention, which has just concluded. The original thoughts are in World Predictions 2016 article, along with other articles on Trump etc in the political astrology files of 2015 and 2016. My perception was that the Republican Party would be in meltdown. I briefly want to remind just why.

For the Republican Party I use a horoscope based on the first meeting at a small hall in Ripon Wisconsin on the evening of February 28 1854, commencing around 6.30 pm. There were subsequent gatherings leading into a mass meeting of over 10,000 attendees on July 6 at Jackson, Michigan that same year. There are important connections between the February 28 beginning and July 6 1854.

Both horoscopes stressed the Sun’s connection to Neptune. As the Sun represents central purpose, the Neptune connection can well depict their initial anti-slavery platform. The cycle of Neptune also shows when they need to return to those social reform roots and times whenever the party loses their way in an obfuscating Neptune manner.

For example, in 1974 when Neptune squared the February 28 Republican birth Sun, the US President Richard Nixon resigned in disgrace over clandestine Neptunian activities known as Watergate. In 1933 when Neptune opposed the February 28 Republican Sun, Herbert Hoover was voted out of office, triggering a Democratic domination for the next twenty years.

In Hoover’s case he led an avaricious America blindly into the Great Depression. He had also purged black Republicans from leadership roles in southern states. So when Neptune came to meet the Sun of the Republican chart during 2016 I thought melt down was the appropriate term. The planet had run its full cycle and was time for the Republicans to reinvent themselves or disappear into oblivion.

The analysis of their convention date for 2016 matched with one significant horoscope in my data file, for having the Sun configured in a quadriform aspect and at the Saturn Neptune midpoint. That horoscope was Operation Eagle Claw. It was Jimmy Carter’s aborted attempt to rescue US hostages from Iran. It crashed and burned spectacularly, costing Carter his presidency.

As 2016 began it might have been hard to imagine senior Republican’s, including ex-Presidents, boycotting the GOP convention. Or that the same convention would begin with an attempt to prevent the nomination of their leading candidate. Or have their second most popular nominee booed off stage for refusing to endorse Donald Trump. But that’s exactly the way the Republican convention went down. Spectacularly! Meanwhile the Democrats and Hillary are about to get some Neptunian wikileaks.

THE HOROSCOPE OF TIM KAINE

Hillary Clinton has officially named her veep running mate. It’s Virginian Senator Tim Kaine. Thanks to the sleuthing of that insightful political astrologer Patrick Watson, Kaine’s birth time is revealed as 07.59 on February 26 1958, in St Paul, Minnesota. Sometimes looking at a running mate’s horoscope can be just as revealing as the main candidate.

Timed birth charts are the key to accurate astrology and the Senator from Virginia has a lot happening. His Piscean birth Sun/Mercury combination forms an accommodating, virtually religious aspect, to their classical ruler Jupiter and modern affiliate Neptune. This flowing water trine suggests a natural empathy with people of all levels and background.

Tim Kaine is a Harvard law graduate of Scottish/Irish ancestry who has served as a missionary with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Honduras, prior to his legal and political career. He is a centrist Democrat softening Clinton’s harder image. His selection implies a tactic of appealing to disenfranchised Republicans as well as strengthening the Democrats security platform.

It wouldn’t be without some misgivings from the Sanders supporters. It comes as Wikileaks have launched an assault on Clinton, using emails regarding Sanders. Astrologically, this is portraying Hillary’s progressed Sun and Mercury squaring destabilizing Neptune, across the next two months. Tim Kaine is there to steady the ship.

PLUTO THE CAREER PILOT

For Tim Kaine, a pivotal repositioning was inevitable in 2016. His Aries Ascendant ruler, Mars, is exalted in his tenth house of public acclaim. Throughout 2016, puppet master Pluto has been moving across this Mars, fuelling an intense career focus. As it does, Kaine’s progressed Mars also opposes his progressed Pluto.

The proliferation of the volatile Mars Pluto aspects by transit and progression are interesting enough by themselves. They may indicate a determined opposition from the NRA (weaponry is Mars stuff) considering that organization already gives the Senator their worst possible rating. That’s because he has successfully passed gun restrictions in his home state.

Powerbroker Pluto frequently features in Kaine’s career moves. He was born with the planet in beneficial trine to his Midheaven. When it finally reached his Midheaven in 2009, he was elected chairperson of the Democratic National Committee, after being suggested as a potential deputy for Barack Obama. Prior to that, with Pluto on his Midheaven ruler Saturn, Kaine was elected and served as governor of Virginia.

ENERGIZING ECLIPSES

Kaine’s birth Sun fields the February 2017 solar eclipse and will soon be opposed by an upcoming eclipse on September 1 2016. Synching with the eclipses, come key life changes. The last time he experienced eclipses on these same degrees was in 1998, when he began his political career as mayor of Richmond Virginia. This is taking that career to another level again.

The upcoming September eclipse signifies political partnership, most likely decided in early June, when Clinton secured sufficient delegate numbers. It was officially announced via her Twitter account at 20.11 hours Friday July 22 (EST), right as the Pisces Moon moved across Kaine’s Sun and Mercury. Yet Kaine has ideal aspects for further elevation.

His solar arcing Midheaven is now moving into an opportune trine with its current ruler Jupiter. Pluto will reconnect with Mars in his career tenth house by December. On the January 20 2017 swearing in day, Kaine will be at his second Saturn return. Saturn is his birth Midheaven ruler. There are numerous other supportive aspects coming to roost, all suggesting that sometimes the running mate’s chart should be the one to examine, prior to an election.

FROMELLES

On July 19 2016 Australia honoured the memory of the Battle of Fromelles. It was not only the worst day in Australia’s military history, but the most tragic in the entire nation’s history. Sacrificed like lambs to the slaughter 5,533 casualties of war fell in a single twenty-four hour period. They were victims of an ill-conceived British plan to attack a German machine gun stronghold.

Their impossible task was to run a quarter mile through a hail of bullets on an open field. It was military madness from a clueless and callous command. Such was a common by-product of the imperialist war for empire’s sake. Australia commemorated the centenary last week, but Britain was left off the invitation list.

The fateful Fromelles campaign began at 6 pm July 19 1916, with the Cancer Sun wedged at the exact midpoint of somber Saturn and sacrificial Neptune. The Sun was aligned with the eclipsing nodal axis when those soldier’s lives were similarly eclipsed. Last week the Sun came back to the Saturn Neptune midpoint as those two planets aligned square to each other. And the eclipsing nodal axis emphasized the square.

Joe Biden touched down in Australia. American Presidents and VP’s don’t arrive for ceremonial purposes. LBJ came here to sell the Vietnam War. George W Bush came to support the Iraq invasion. Barack Obama to announce the eventual deployment of permanent US troops on Australian soil for an Asian pivot. The PR sell was Australia also announcing an official day to commemorate the Japanese bombing of Darwin.

Biden’s visit comes a mere week after the International Court’s anticipated ruling in the Hague, that China did not have historic rights to the South China Sea. The Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull had barely been sworn in, when he was drawn into defence talks with Biden. Fromelles was but a distant memory…another age…another time. But should it be?

Aries or Aries Rising: Every new dawn brings fresh stories, films, songs and inventions. Ever stopped to think, where does all that creativity come from? It’s not a chicken and egg question. It begins with belief. A blind faith, sometimes defying all evidence, that things can and will happen. The unwavering belief creates the reality. By Tuesday the Moon and quick thinking Mercury inspire inventive Uranus in Aries. It makes this week great for your original ideas, new technology and all things electric.To look at your own personal chart, organise a personal and/or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin.

Taurus or Taurus Rising: You must have heard the line, ‘some are born great, some achieve greatness and others have greatness thrust upon then.’ And the rest…well they just get their shoelace caught in a revolving door. But the people that have greatness thrust upon them, usually do so without trying too hard. They are obviously in the right place at the right time. It’s something that you can be thinking about this week - whether you have found that right place. A time to look at how nurturing your immediate environment really is and how you can make it so.

Gemini or Gemini Rising: Your ruler Mercury is forming an accommodating trine to Uranus, the planet of the unexpected. It gives you the chance to incorporate the element of surprise. It favours doing something out of the ordinary and living in the impulsiveness of the moment. You might have a delightful surprise for that special someone – or vice-a-versa. It suits sudden and short trips or exploring new groups and interests. Welcome the unique and the unusual.

Cancer or Cancer Rising: It’s time to take an inventory of useless possessions. Time to determine what is functional and what is just taking up necessary space. It’s hard to move in a crowded place. Possessions can own you. The more you have the less you move and the more complicated life becomes. Prioritize! The universe can be offering up new benefits, assets or by creating new space. Old security blankets shouldn’t be suffocating fresh opportunities. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Leo or Leo Rising: Your look, demeanor and general projection is central to how you play the role. How others see you can be the deciding factor in the outcome. Use that to your advantage and dress for success, while chic, stylish Venus moves through in Leo. Think of life like as you would a costume ball. Connective Mercury is also strong in your sign all week. Communication, correspondence and conversations deliver the inside information. A boon for students, writers and/or business transactions.

Virgo or Virgo Rising: A good poker player knows how to cover his/her hand. They’re not tipping the mitt and giving out valuable information that can be used against them. Just like a successful general in battle, the winning moves are made behind the scenes. It’s something you need to be mastering for now. Take your time. Prepare the way. Know that if you do this part well, the outcome will be almost a forgone conclusion. Keep your confidence on what needs to be private at this point.

Libra or Libra Rising: Congratulate yourself if you’ve navigated July successfully so far. There should have been some testing moments along the way. Getting full co-operation when others are determined to do it their way has been a tough ask. Diplomacy will pay big dividends. When it comes to cutting the deal, you’re better than most. It’s a case of showing someone what’s in it for them. The Sun, Mercury and Venus in your house of hopes and wishes can be delivering this week on the social and friendship levels.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: There’s no excuse for crying ‘what about me?’ at the moment. Instead you just have to go on there, boots and all, and demand your rights or stake your claim. No-one can do it better than you right now. If you’re not doing it for yourself, you’re doing it for others. This week it’s a matter of taking the initiative and then taking charge. When you do that - recognition and achievement follows. Your career planets are working overtime – like an opening night on Broadway.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: When Dorothy uttered, ‘Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore’, she knew that her life would never be the same again. You should be able to relate to that. You can hardly have a new experience unless you’re willing to leave something behind. Life can hardly change unless you move with it. If you’re not living the dream – perhaps you really need to find one. The planets are encouraging you to do that from Monday. Be open to some new opportunities.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: Debt is not only a four-letter word. Sometimes it is necessary to ask a favor or to get a proverbial leg up the mountain. It’s how business works and society is built. There’s nothing wrong with borrowing a cup of sugar providing you’re not paying with a pound of flesh. And it’s always wise to honour the truth of shaking hands with the people you meet on the way up lest you encounter them again on the way down. Keep it all in mind this week. Look at your own future prospects astrologically for the years ahead, organize a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin Click here for details. Top

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: When the resourceful Sun opposes your sign, you can often see your life reflected in others. It’s why partnerships grow in importance, or the need to take another’s ideas or opinions on board becomes critical. So whether you’re celebrating a new partnership or re-evaluating an old one, objectivity is essential. You recognize the need to see both sides of an issue and to recognize difference, without necessarily being divided by it. To look at your own future prospects astrologically for 2016 -2016, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed. Click here for details. Top

Pisces or Pisces Rising: What’s the use of going to sleep? You’re only going to wake up again. Why bother eating? It’s not going to stop you getting hungry again. If we all thought like that nothing would ever get accomplished. Life is naturally cyclic. It’s a matter of putting one foot in front of the other, and moving forward to maintain your balance. The value of getting things into order or establishing a workable routine should be obvious this week. Keep a good work ethic. You can accomplish a lot through your constancy.
