|Allen West: "y'all ain't think that I was gonna lay low, right?"|
A statement from Mr. West about his career move, on Pajamas Media's website: "'Those who think losing a congressional race defines me and ends my service to my country fail to realize what drives my patriotism and passion for America,' West said. 'True leaders do not need a title, just a conviction, a cause and the character enabling them to make a stand.'"
Booker Rising response: You can see video of Mr. West's announcement of his next career move here. He states that this gig isn't to set him up for another Congressional run.
I'm not trying to jinx a brotha because I'm glad that he's got a new job, but I see red flags here. I predict that Mr. West will be in this position for no more than a year. I wouldn't be surprised if he only lasts six months at Pajamas Media. Regular readers know that I like to add a dose of mysticism to the blog. Mr. West's astrological natal chart shows a strong Cardinal (leadership) orientation. In numerology, Mr. West is an Aquarius 8 Birth Path. Such individuals have a very strong urge to make great changes in large systems (military, politics, health, business, media, etc.). They are born leaders who must have a large venue for their powerful humanitarian energy. While this Pajamas Media gig certainly plays to his desire to influence a major institution and fulfills his emotional need for his work to serve some higher humanitarian purpose, it bumps up against a key aspect of his life's purpose. An 8 Birth Pather will be emotionally unfilfilled and unhappy in any gig where he or she ain't the boss. One can see these Aquarius 8 Birth Path issues throughout Mr. West's career trajectory. E.g., that short-lived teaching gig (a position where he wasn't in charge). Executive leadership is what will fulfill him in his career.
