New Moon in Virgo
Everyone was relieved at the end of the recent Merc retrograde Friday, even if the lunar cycle didn't end/begin until tonight's new moon in sexy but stand-offish Virgo. And things could change around here this cycle...
One's a rumor, two's a trend, and three's worth a phone call. I think Councilwoman Jan Perry is likely to ditch her mayoral run in September and take her dollars over to the Controller's race, where hitherto coasting Dennis Zine is likely the stiffest possible competitor. This move makes perfect sense. Perry can't win as mayor, especially if Caruso enters (see below). The Controller's race, however, usually goes to the person with the top name, and Jan Perry trumps Zine in this regard.
People are also getting edgy around the periphery of the Rick Caruso orbit and I also hear he is entering the mayor's race sooner rather than later.
Candidate Rebecca Chambliss in CD15 tweeted that she saw a lot of people with clipboards in San Pedro this weekend, trying to get 500 signatures. Twenty candidates have filed intentions; twenty is also the limit of gate positions available at the Kentucky Derby.
Last but not least: would you believe Ron Kaye in Zine's old district? The Marlboro Man of the west Valley is said to be coveting a run.
