Washington DC is about to experience an encounter of the stellar kind as the star Vega slowly makes it's way over the city's exact zenith in the next 100 years or so. It's in fact already influencing the US capital in major way, as it is only 7 minutes of arc away from exactitude(to the south) and closing. Washington is highly "in tune" with the influences of this Behenian star which is why a movie(Contact) was made about it. Whatever communications are going on between Washington and Vega are of course top secret but you can be sure something is going on.
The star Vega is the main star in the constellation Lyra. The star is a bright 0.03 magnitude and bluish-white in color. It is located at RA 18h53m42s and Dec 38°47'27"N(2012). Astrologically, it is at 15°29' of tropical Capricorn.
The name Vega means "falling" or "landing" and is associated with the vulture or eagle. It is one of the 15 Behenian stars and is thought to signify luck in politics, artistic talent, fleeting fame, double dealing and theft, generosity, and practicality. It is considered a mostly fortunate influence related to the planets Venus and Mercury. It's zodiacal position in Capricorn signifies big business or industry.
In the 1997 American movie production entitled "Contact" starring Jodie Foster and Matthew McConaughey, and based on Carl Sagan's novel(all three are Scorpio Suns who love deep research and both Foster and Sagan have Saturn in Aquarius which is associated with science and astronomy), the star Vega or its vicinity is the source of radio transmissions which the lead actors investigate, while a cautious National Council of Security(NCS) based in Washington watches on. The decoded transmissions and Foster's own personal journey to Vega elucidate the message that humanity has taken its first step towards extraterrestial contact.
Whether this is true or not only Washington knows for sure, or it may be another subtle attempt by our government leaders via Hollywood to let us know that some type of contact between Earth and the stars has indeed occurred. Personally, this author believes that we have always been in contact with aliens whether they be extraterrestial, terrestial, or intraterrestial. It's just that most of us haven't been told about it.
