Talking himself out of a dream job in a rush

Rush Limbaugh makes a living by talking — so why did he screw up a dream job so fast? His dream of being a sportscaster was made real by ESPN.  He turned that dream into a publicity nightmare.  On September 28, 2003 Rush was covering a Sunday game and observed that the Philadelphia Eagles Quarterback McNabb was overrated.  Limbaugh said, “I think what we’ve had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn’t deserve. The defense carried this team.”  These views created a firestorm about a Quarterback that had already made his mark in football.

Rush Limbaugh’s   daily chart for        Sept. 28, 2003

Inner:  Transits   Outer:  Natal

Natal angles:             MC: = 0 Sagitt.           Asc. = 18 Aquar.

Daily angles:            MC: = 11 Aquar.     Asc. = 26 Taurus




Rush Limbaugh has always been out-spoken and quick to say what he feels and believes.  After all, he is king in his world, operating from his Palm Beach, Florida home studio and reaching a large radio audience who hang upon his every statement — accurate or just plain baloney.  His audience, termed “Ditto-heads” go along with everything he says.  It seems that ESPN was part of his Ditto-head fan base.  But, that’s for the next post.

This strong chart defines a most significant period and demonstrates the power of the MC-Solar Cycle as an indicator of life changing events.

Natal MC is at the daily Descendant angle: Goals and status are noted by others. Either praise from others or expectations of others will be at play.  A chance to change a relationship will occur.

Natal Ascendant is at the daily MC angle: One may be in the spotlight today or asked to justify their position.  Speaking or testifying for yourself or another in a public setting, in court, or at work.

These angles have not yet matured but they are closing towards exactitude.  They are close enough to have an impact.  Rush is in character, just as if he were in his home studion addressing the Ditto heads — except that he is on national TV with a different audience.  OOPS.  Shouldn’t have said that in that way.

Daily MC is at the midpoint of natal Ascendant and Venus: This is a direct midpoint — the MC at 11 degrees is between natal Ascendant (18 degrees) and natal Venus (5 degrees).  this suggests a harmonious person, one who is comfortable in himself.

Transiting N.Node near Ascendant:  Group activity or business associates become the focus now and provide a direction to move ahead.
