Well I got that wrong.

One of the fun parts about basing a prediction on a single indicator is that the result is binary, it either works or it does not.

I couldn’t have been more wrong about the way the transit of Venus through Capricorn and Aquarius was going to play out.

The change candidates both took enormous leads, and the establishment candidates have really struggled, which is precisely opposite to what I said would happen!!.

So, the Ascendant ruler (venus) is not the defining factor in primary election results.

What I did notice, is that both McCain and Obama had to emphasize their experience over that period, with McCain billing himself as the “experience” candidate, and Obama mostly answering the charge of inexperience, though the latest result in Ohio and Texas might mark a turning point in his effectiveness on that issue.

I can see how Venus visiting Saturn’s homes (Capricorn and Aquarius) was important in the campaigns, but rather than determine the nature of the vote (which is what I expected it to do) it determined the nature of the debate. If I expected the candidates who represented the establishment positions to do best on their “natural positions” in the debate, I now know better.

That being the case, as Venus enters Pisces, ideology should dominate the debate until March 20.

We live and learn
