        I have a thought that I thought I'd put out there for consideration

        I was wondering if this time of year MUST be busy because the inner
        planets are transiting Sagitarius/ galactic center, so they are
        aligning with so much steller activity, where as Once you get to
        Aquarius, its pretty darn quiet, January, ???? not as much stellar
        alignment? as opposed to just our own galaxy alignments?

        that portion of the sky is crowded, where as Aqu is less so?

          Vladimir Putin seems to be popular in Russia, though the recent
          parliamentary election has been criticized; in Venezuela, the voters
          wouldn't endorse Hugo Chavez' attempted power grab; here in the US,
          Mike Huckabee has gained dramatically in the polls, Rudy Giuliani not
          being ideologically pure enough for many Republican voters
