In this reading I use a spread I developed to cover a very common situation. It occurred to me that so many problems fall into the same pattern - a disagreement or conflict between two people or groups. Before continuing, you might want to look at this new spread to understand how it works.
Right now, in the United States, there is a major conflict between President Clinton and the conservative members of Congress led by the Republicans in the House. The Republicans are insisting on a balanced budget to be achieved within 7 years. They have definite ideas on what needs to be done and how to measure success. President Clinton is willing to work toward balancing the budget, but refuses to OK the severe measures recommended by the Republicans. He also objects to the proposed accounting methods. He has vowed to veto any bill that is not acceptable.
To complicate matters, many parts of the government have been shutdown since December 15, 1995 because no resolution has been passed to provide funds for paying federal workers. Even though this is not directly related to the balanced budget conflict, it keeps the pressure on because House Republicans refuse to arrange for funds until they have an acceptable agreement. Nevertheless, Clinton has shown that he will not agree to any measure simply to end the shutdown.
So, early on January 2, 1996, I did a Yin Yang Reading based on the following statement of interest:
I am seeking insight into the conflict between House Republicans and the Clinton Administration. They disagree on how best to balance the budget and reopen the federal government so that furloughed workers can return to work.

The pathology of the poet says that the undevout astronomer is mad the pathology of the very plain man says that the genius is mad and between these extremes, which stand for ten thousand analogous excesses, the sovereign reason takes the part of a moderator and does what it can. I do not think that there is a pathology of the occult dedications, but about their extravagances no one can question, and it is not less difficult than thankless to act as a moderator regarding them.
