Oprah? President?

loco_aubrey
No. I don't want any more celebrity presidents. I want a president with the political knowledge and background to help us get out of this mess.

If Oprah wants to run for president, then she should. But I believe she is smart enough to know that being president isn't the best way to help change the direction and consciousness of our nation. In her current position, Oprah can do more good than she would if she got entangled in the tendrils of shady dealings and collective bad karma that is known as the U.S. Federal Government.

No, Oprah should not run for president because she is one of the best communicators and one of the most generous people this country has and I think anybody that gets involved with politics is out for power. I think there is more involved in it than just the good will she tends to show. She does a better job with what she's doing.

Oprah should not run for president. The political arena would restrict her ability to influence the social network in our culture.  Her business involvement in a variety of media and her economic power allows her to lobby for the people. Politics would redirect her energy away from many of her great causes and stifle her candid rhetoric.

Leo Sun; Full Moon, Venus Retro in Leo; Saturn Direct

It’s a complex week of planetary movements, challenges, demands and callings. We’re in the time of the Leo Sun. Leo—fixed fire, gold, the heart, generous, strong, noble, the king/queen—needs appreciation and praise from everyone in order to move forward. During Leo we gain a greater sense of self-identification by recognizing our creativity. It’s therefore a perfect time for Venus retrograding in Leo. In Venus retrograde we review and re-assess values. Venus retro in Leo concerns our self as valuable, acknowledging talents, gifts, abilities and offerings. Friday, Venus re-enters Leo (29 degrees, a critical degree) continuing the retrograde to 14 degrees Leo on Sept. 6. Friday (Full Moon) is also the (8 degrees) Leo solar festival, Festival of the Future. Leo is the heart of the sun, the heart of all that matters. When attuned to this heart, we have understanding and inclusivity. The heart of the Lion is Mitra (think “Maitreya,” the coming World Teacher). Leo prepares humanity to receive divine love from subtle sources and later to radiate that love to the kingdoms. Sirius, Ray 2, where love originates, streams through Regulus (heart of Leo), into the heart of the sun (Ray 2) and into all hearts. The heart of Leo is Regulus. Joining Venus, the love underlying all of creation appears. Saturday is Sun/Neptune (confusion or devotion) with late night Saturn turning stationary direct. Ideas, plans and structures held long in abeyance (since March 14) slowly move forward. (Read more on Leo and the week at nightlightnews.org and Risa D’Angeles’ Facebook page, accessed through my website.)

Bargetto Winery

A much-anticipated annual event at Bargetto Winery is the release of their very special La Vita red wine. June 7 was the day to be heralded this year, and I happily squeezed my car into their overloaded car park in eager anticipation of tasting the new La Vita nectar.
