Show & the California Recall
In late July, this astrologer was invited to do a weekly call-in spot on KZSC, the 10,000 watts FM station at 88.1 for the University of California at Santa Cruz. David Anton Savage is the radio host for this 3 to 6 PM Tuesday afternoon "silk road music for the soul" program. David is a Vedic Astrology aficionado who created "Stars of India," which interviewed top-rated Vedic Astrologers from around the world.. David had been receiving my Forecasts since last January, and his interest in this use of Vedic Astrology eventually prompted an invitation for my weekly radio spot.
The call-in time is now fixed at 5:45 pm PDT each Tuesday, and during this 15 minute live conversation, we discuss mundane (world) astrology topics.. These provide a wonderful opportunity to informally explore current events, which sometimes end up being the subjects of my formal Forecasts. Last week, I was hooked by the lure of this political circus and took the bait to predict the outcome of the October 7 California governor recall election, the topic of this Forecast.
Those of you in the San Francisco Bay Area are invited to tune into KZSC 88.1 FM on Tuesdays at 5:45 PM. Pacific Time. If you're outside the radio station range, you can hear the show on webstreaming through your Windows Media Player. Go to http://kzsc.ucsc.edu/index.htm for audio access and instruct- ions. It's easy and actually works!
The California Recall Election
This ultimate political weirdness was not predicted, but it appears to be an extreme local reaction to the failed neo-conservative policies of the Bush Administration. California has been hit hardest by the national economic stagnation and the neo-conservative's pervasive anti tax philosophy that hobbles all state and local governments. The linchpin for California may be energy concerns, which began in 2002 with power short- ages and price gauging and has been exacerbated by higher gas prices associated with the Iraq war, which is understood to be about controlling the oil supply anyway. That Californian's are also environmentalists and have often lead the nation in using and advocating alternative energy sources, is the spark that set off this conflagration. The recall election is really more about rebellion against Bush's failed policies than Governor Davis' inability to correct them.
Arnold Schwarzenegger's birth data is well documented, but with Cruz Bustamante's birth time not known (only the date and place are published), an election prediction for October 7 seemed impossible. However, news reports about California's Lieutenant Governor stressed how consistently lucky the man has been throughout a laborious career, which inspired a birth time rectification of his chart to place Jupiter where it would bring such great jupiterian beneficence.
Arnold's chart is persuasive for his great business, bodybuilding acting
successes. Jupiter in his 5th house of speculations brings
investment success. However, this Jupiter also makes him want to be a
king, not a servant of the people. The Sun (body) rules the 3rd house of
the performing arts and is strongly placed with Venus (the arts) and
Saturn (violence and death) in his 2nd house of income. Thus,
during his 7 year Sun Dasa (planetary period) from 1969 to 1974, Arnold Schwarzenegger
won the Mr. Olympia title 5 times. With his Moon (the public) in
his 7th house of relationships, he gained acting fame for incredibly
violent roles during its 10 year Dasa. from
1975 to 1985. Since then, however, his movies have flopped or been
the exception of the 1991 Terminator 2, which was released during a Moon Bhukti - subperiod
Now quietly comes
Cruz Bustamante, unimpressive as Arnold is glamorous and wide at the
waist as Arnold remains Mr. Olympia. Bustamante is the tortoise,
Schwarzenegger is the hare.
The final piece of the karmic puzzle for Bustamante's victory is his incredibly powerful Jupiter transiting the 1st house of the self and recognition - completely opposite Schwarzenegger's restrictive Saturn transiting his 1st house of the self.
One unanswered question is whether Governor Gray Davis might survive the
recall. He will not, and there are two solid reasons for
this. First, as discussed in the first part of this analysis,
California is the spark setting off a political conflagration in America
- the rebellion against Bush. To defeat Gray's recall during this time of increasing
dissatisfaction with neo-conservative policies would deny the peoples'
voice in this largest population state in the Union. Californian's
won't wait for the 2004 election to throw Davis out for Bush's policies; they want to
vote their feelings now against Davis as an anti Bush effort. The summer season transits bringing discord and
dissatisfaction insure this public resistance. Second,
Bustamante's Jupiter is an irresistible force that will make him
Governor, and this alone insures Davis will be thrown out so that Cruz
may luckily be on the ballet.
