(Astrology Explored Blog) The nail biter of the 2020 United States election leaves everyone, Democrats and Republicans on edge as Trump does Trump, and the rest of us lose sleep. The stakes are no less than the soul of the nation. Will we move forward in the 21st century to carve a more progressive path or slip backward into isolationism, xenophobia, and a ‘us vs. them’ mentality? But it’s not just America, but the rest of the world who holds its collective breath. Our friends and allies in other nations wonder if America will reclaim its status as a trusted world leader.Continue reading
(Astrology Explored Blog) Democrats, after the defeat of 2016, are suffering a bit of PTSD over the electoral map. Though polls in 2016 saw Secretary Clinton leading, and pundits forecasted a win, the electoral map came up much different from than seasoned prognosticators expected. Below is the electoral map at the final total. Continue reading
As a forensic astrology technique, I often put the event chart in the center and the person’s chart in the outer ring. The Sun, according to Rex Bills in The Rulership Book represents the President, along with the 10th house and the zodiac sign Leo. Trump’s Chiron, “the planet of something wrong,” and Trump’s Jupiter (the king) sits on the ascendant of the event chart. The ascendant is dawn, the first rays of the sun shining at the beginning of the day. Trump’s Neptune (the planet of infections) buries itself further into the twelfth house of secrets. It is in opposition to the day’s Chiron in the sixth house of health. Chiron is in Aries, which is ruled by the planet Mars, the planet of trouble. The president is, indeed, “not out of the woods.”Continue reading
The firing of James Comey came as a huge surprise to the American public. But is it a surprise?
What does the astrology say about the situation?
Moon, Mars, Uranus and Pluto Are Key Players
Astrologically Donald Trump has his Sun in opposition to his moon. Full moon people are often drawn into relationships with others, but may have difficulty navigating then. My opinion is that those with a significant Gemini/Sagittarius axis find it difficult to accept existing norms of behavior. Either they forever lock themselves with the confines of solidly defined roles or they chuck societal norms altogether. Trump appears to have cast himself in the later camp. Also, there is a tendency to see others as merely an extension of self or failing that, not at all. With the US Mars, the planet of trouble, sitting on his Sun/Moon axis it’s a given that trouble follows him in his role as president.
Mars, the planet of trouble (in the yellow section) of the Comey event charis within 10 degrees of Trump’s Sun/Moon axis and the US Mars point. This tells me two things. First, Trump did make the decision to fire Comey before Tuesday. I say he made this decision around May 4th or 5 days before the actual firing when transiting Mars hit the US Uranus. It also indicates that since Mars has not yet reached his Sun, his problems are just beginning. Continue reading
An eclipse ignites an area of sensitivity a natal chart for at least six months. For the United States this eclipse moon is opposite the US natal moon in Aquarius. But even more pressing the eclipse moon is part of Yod, called the Finger of God, with transiting Chiron, which I call “the planet of something wrong” and Pluto, who most astrologers calls the planet of transformation.
Chiron and Pluto forces their energy up the lines of their respective inconjuncts to the eclipse moon fixing it in place and forcing the chart native to deal with this issue.
Because the energy of the Yod is explosively intense, the events that arise out of the Yod feels destined or fated.
Moon in Aquarius concerns itself with humanitarian issues and the rights of the public at large. This eclipse moon lands in the ninth house of legal issues. So we are going to see a lot of back and forth about the rights of the people. Continue reading
