Marianne Williamson’s Bid to Run for Congress- an astrology POV
The spiritual teacher Marianne Williamson, best known for her interpretations of A Course in Miracles, announced her candidacy for California’s District 33 in the U.S. House of Representatives on 10/20/2013.
Marianne Williamson‘s beautiful voice has encouraged hundreds of thousands of people to look at life differently through her presentations of A Course in Miracles. Historically a cabaret singer, her personal renaissance began in 1983 when with $1000 in her pocket she moved from NY to CA. Through the course of that year, Pluto (symbolizing death and transformation) made a geometric picture to the position of her horoscope‘s Moon (emotional center). This signifies a highly challenging time in her life, usually fraught with lessons of surrender. Her ascension from obscurity to a household name, is testimony to her ability to come out of the ashes victorious.
People who have worked to become famous always have horoscopes that show challenges, and Marianne Williamson is no exception. One standout is that her Capricorn Moon has no connection with any other planet: an unaspected Moon. When this occurs a person may not be aware of how they react emotionally until it hits them over the head. Then she reacts in a disruptive way as the genie pops out of the bottle, so to speak. She also was born with the planet Uranus in line with her Sun and Venus, indicating a tendency to act spontaneously which to others may seem unpredictable.
In spite of her teaching persona, Williamson is reputed to have a backstage abrasive nature. A Course in Miracles has enabled her to harness this erratic streak, because her intention is to work in partnership to create a more loving world. Her horoscope shows that in spite of her passion to do so, she does not inherently understand how to negotiate cooperatively. Like a great therapist, she works hard on herself. She is so good at teaching ACIM because it helps her.
Her decision to run for office was announced on 10/20/13 in Beverly Hills, when Jupiter (symbolizing luck, opportunity) had just touched the position of her Venus (values, love). This coupled with Neptune (spirituality, unconscious connectedness) coming to her Midheaven (career point) indicates that this bid is motivated by a desire to help and heal. Perhaps the strongest picture is Pluto (transformation) triggering Chiron (the healer/teacher). Regardless of the outcome of her announcement, it will propel her message to an audience that has heretofore not received it. Unlike a starry-eyed spiritual teacher, Williamson has a thick skin that comes with the Capricorn Moon, in spite of her caring Cancer Sun and Venus. She has the resilience to deal in the political arena.
Whether she wins or not, creating a visible platform as a candidate with a “Return to Love” mandate helps to change the vibratory energy of a toxic political environment. The seat is presently held by the popular Henry Waxman, so if winning is her ultimate goal, she certainly needs to apply her skills in A Course in Miracles. What do you think of Williamson’s run?
