The Lion of the Senate

by Sherene Schostak August 28, 2009 09:35 PM EST
RIP dear Edward Kennedy, your presence is already greatly missed! The Senate will never be the same! It is truly the end of an era.
Edward Kennedy was a true embodiment of a Pisces: compassionate, lover of the sea, and die-hard romantic. Forever committed to service (Virgo moon) and to helping the underprivileged throughout his life, you can't help but feel what a great heart this saint of a man possessed. But where did he get his reputation as the "Lion of the Senate"? His Mercury (communication/voice) was in close conjunction with Mars (force, power and aggression) in the humanitarian and eccentric side of Aquarius. Add to this, his Jupiter in Leo and you see the lovable yet ferocious side of his nature. His sturdy Capricorn Ascendant and Saturn in Capricorn reveal a man of great integrity and backbone. 
Some of his famous quotes:
"It's better to bring in the Peace Corps than the Marine Corps."
"I seek the Presidency with no illusions." (interesting coming from a Pisces).
"Take the issues seriously but don't take yourself too seriously."-Edward Kennedy
