Manafort Wiretap Scandal


We've seen in previous posts that Jupiter-to-Pallas transits tend to coincide with ethics scandals, particularly when bad behavior (Pallas rules ethics) is revealed to the public (Jupiter). 

Well, transiting Jupiter at 25 Libra is conjunct the US solar arc Pallas at 26 Libra and trine the US Pallas at 26 Aquarius.  It's probably fair to expect more revelations of wrongdoing in America in the next few days.

St Louis Violence


Pallas represents intelligence, logic, ethics, and one's decision-making and truth-determination processes.  We've seen from many previous examples that Pluto-to-Pallas transits tend to mark ethical crises and/or periods of very bad behavior.  We've also seen that hard transits from Saturn to Pallas also mark periods in which one's normal decision-making process is impaired.  So, bearing these in mind, transiting Pluto at 16 Cap is sextile the St Louis (Nov 9 1809) Pallas at 20 Pis (and very tightly sextile the Pallas-Pluto midpoint at just before 16 Pis) , and transiting Saturn at 21 Sag is square the St Louis Pallas

Florida Power Outage


I've been linking power outages with Ceres-Pallas configurations. Pallas for intelligence, Ceres for the taking away of things. Today, transiting Ceres is at 25 Cancer (a water sign, get it?) opposite the (March 3 1845) Florida Pallas at 0 Aquarius (the water bearer, an air sign).

JLaw Blames Hurricane on Trump


President Trump has no shortage of faults, but it's probably safe to say that he does not cause hurricanes. 

When people do (or say) uncharacteristically irrational things, it's usually one or more hard astrological transits against their natal and/or progressed Pallas (representing intelligence).  So here are Jennifer Lawrence's transits for the day (or the day after, I don't know) the actress, who is normally known for being "down to earth", publicly displayed signs of changed mental function.  Jupiter is square her Pallas (normally a transit associated with ethical scandal), Saturn is quincunx her Pallas, and Ceres is conjunct her Pallas (something we see in power outages when cities "go dumb"). 

I'm probably still going to see that new movie of hers.

DACA to Die?

President Trump looks poised to let the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, lapse

Against the US Sibley chart, transiting Saturn (restriction) is currently square the US Neptune (foreign elements) and opposite the US Mars, resident of the Seventh House of "others" and ruler of the Twelfth House (foreigners) and Fourth House (homeland).

Regarding Harvey

As Hurricane Harvey continues to devastate Houston and surrounding areas, the transits against the US Sibley chart are relevant.

Transiting Neptune in Pisces (representing water) is trine the US Sun.  Trines are not necessarily always "good".

Transiting Saturn (struggle) is square the US Neptune (water again) and opposite the US Mars.

Transiting Jupiter in Libra (air) is trine the US Mars in Gemini (also air).

Progressed Ceres (loss/removal) is conjunct the US IC (home/land). 

And of course, last week's eclipse over the US Moon probably threw a wrench into the works over all things ruled by the Moon (including land).

Gorka Out

In the vein of the departure of White House staff Scaramucci and Bannon, national security aide Sebastian Gorka's departure is also connected to Ceres-related transits on President Trump's chart.

Transiting Ceres (removal) is still square Trump's Jupiter (foreign policy) and the transiting Sun in Virgo ("aid") is quincunx Trump's progressed Ceres
