Virgo/Service and Pisces/Faith Mix as Obama and Mccain Compete with Rev. Rick at The Saddleback Forum
Who is the most compassionate believer? Or Who can show the best face at a staged religious event. Neptune (ruler of Uranus in Pisces) has separated from a hypnotic Mercury Opposition back on August 16th where subversive activities are being used more extensively by the networks and now with a Mercury Oppossing Uranus (Pisces) will occur the following Saturday August 23rd.
The the evening of the Forum: Neptune-Moon in Aquarius Opposing Theatrical Sun in Leo fired up the dramatic cannons as CNN fought NBC who already had the Olympics market share viewers.
From the standpoint of electional astrology, Saturday Aug. 16, 2008 was not only the day of the Lunar Eclipse Full Moon in Aquarius but featured one of the best aspects for social events a Venus (Virgo) trine to Jupiter @ 5:10 PM.
Rev. Warren, brokered the event so to speak by personal invite. Rick the author of the best-selling book “The Purpose-Driven Life,” said he had called each man personally to invite him to his event.
The Media is still feeding off the Megachurch Extravaganza at Saddleback (as Mercury is applying to a conjunction with Venus to help add more sensitivity to the content
last Saturday where McCain seemed to outshine Obama in evangelical core concepts like Pro-Life and Anti Gay Marriage. Even though Sen. Barack Obama said Saturday that his greatest moral failure -- and the country's -- has been selfishness, but his opponent, Sen. John McCain, cited his failed first marriage - Christ true Piscean message of selfless help was not enough to catch the rays of the spotlight.
John McCain unlike Obama, was quick and deliberate in his answers. Mr. straight talking snake tongue, McCain with his Mars in Leo (natally in the public 10th) demanded attention as his conservative Pluto @ 28 Cancer and nationalistic MC @ 16 Cancer. With transiting Neptune @ 22 Aquarius in close Quincunx to Barack's Mars @ 22 Virgo (same as Neptune in US Sibley chart) was restrained-subdued. Obama told the Rev. Rick Warren that "we still don't abide by that basic precept of Matthew: that whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me.
Sun-Leo shined on McCain's 11th house of group acceptance, hero worship with a close conjunction to McCain's natal Juno @ 23 Leo This combination of solar-magnetic principles of identity and purpose with the intimacy of relationships. When asked what faith in Jesus means to him, McCain replied, "Means I'm saved and forgiven. Our faith encompasses not just America but the world." Plus and big plus was transiting Saturn, Mercury, Venus adding an aura of practical, values of service to McCain's "supposedly true selfless identity" Sun-Neptune. What a smoke job even if Rev. Rick means well.
Lest we forget all the outer planets were working to fashion this forum into a Mega Event
to keep the reptile and vulturite lords happy.

This event was all about Rick's focus and Saddleback going live and catching
the Pisces wave including Mutual Reception. "It has taken a man of God, perhaps, to do what nobody else has been able to do since the general election season began: Get Barack Obama and John McCain together on the same stage before their party conventions later this summer."
Richard D. "Rick" Warren (born January 28, 1954) who is the son of Jimmy and Dot Warren. His father was a Baptist minister, his mother a high school librarian. This Aquarian Sun has the planet of communication Mercury (ruler of the current Virgo grouping) @ 18 Aquarius able to reap the current magical transit from N Node of fate @ 18 degrees.
Rick should get his wish of "Saddleback’s goal in staging this event is “to restore the church’s primacy in society and not be off on the sidelines, to be a part of the world and all the issues.”
Rick's Sun-Venus conjunction @ 8 Aquarius - highly social and able to listen amiably and make groups of people feel good, Rev. Rick is both a diplomat and someone who enjoys the finer things in life with perhaps a quirky side. Looking deeper with the Sabian for 9 degrees Aquairus: "An escaped eagle with the remanants of a blindfold hanging over one eye screaming down at his captors" Here we find a bold, agressive even revolutionary side of Rick Warren that despite all the end times garbage will be fighting for independence. All in all this was Rick's Night. especially with transiting Uranus trining his own natal Mars @ 23 Scorpio and a transiting Square adding a certain magnetic intensity from
