Another drop-out from the Obama Cabinet happened today. Senator Judd Gregg pulled his name out of the ring for the position of Commerce Secretary saying he couldn't support the new administration 100 percent.
No wonder because he has the Conflict Star on his Wisdom direction. That means that people may not be receptive to his ideas this year or that he's presented with ideas that conflict with his inner wisdom.
Gregg is the 5th person President Obama has had trouble naming to his cabinet this year and probably won't be the last. That's because he has the Robbery Star on Obama's Wisdom direction this year. That means his decisions are going to cost him in some way throughout 2009. So far he's spent it on political capital to get the stimulus bill passed AND on his picks for the new administration...and the year has only just begun.
On top of this the Robbery Star sits on the area of the feng shui bagua (pronounced bah gwah) that represents Government. Not only does that mean that the government stands to lose a lot of money or spend a lot more money this year than it takes in but it can also mean that it loses out in other ways --- like in talented people that could help the country.
All in all it will be a challenging year for President Obama in terms of his decisions and for all levels of the government: national, state and local. This challenging energy will peak in July so watch for even more difficult news about the economy or Obama's ideas about helping the country then.
On the upside we only have 11 more months to go.
