Things are really heating up in the New York battle.
It’s a scramble for hearts and minds.
It’s a no-holds-barred street fight.
And it’s definitely superb theater.
Voters Picking Sides In The New York Battle
Yes, it’s hard to ignore the political dynamics right now.
The primary elections in New York are scheduled for April 19, and that’s the most obvious arena in the current New York battle.
On the Republican side, Ted Cruz looks like he may have a hard time gaining much affection, especially after his repeated criticisms of “New York values”.
Donald Trump, meanwhile, has been a big player on the New York scene for quite some time.
But in many cases his own unique personal version of New York Values has created enemies as well as friends and admirers.
On the Democratic side, New York native Bernie Sanders is going toe-to-toe with New York transplant Hillary Clinton, and their rhetoric has been getting surprisingly nasty.
The New York Battle Is More Than Just Politics
In many respects, the current New York battle is just another over-the-top expression of New York exuberance at its finest and most extravagant.
After all, in New York who needs an election to have an excuse for opinionated bluster?
There are always battle lines to be drawn.
There are always heroes and villains to designated.
There’s always a home team to root for, no matter who you might think the home team is.
The Planetary Difference
But this time, however, there’s an interesting distinction in the current New York battle.
The New York primaries come on April 19.
That’s the date the Sun moves into Taurus.
It also comes on the heels of a surprisingly rare planetary event – nearly simultaneous retrograde stations by Mars and Pluto.
Mars goes retrograde on April 17, and Pluto goes retrograde on April 18.
It’s the kind of one-two punch that could have a major impact, not just on the New York battle on election day, but in other realms as well.
You’ll find a quick recap on the double retrograde, along with some intriguing historical connections, in this 4-minute video:
