Austria Election

On the same day as the Italy referendum, Austria's election appears to have gone to the Left.  My explanation for this is that by solar arc, Austria's Pallas is very far on the "Dionysian" side at this time.  Austria's solar arc Pallas is opposite Austria's Pluto, tipping the nation's scales towards authoritarianism. Transiting Pallas conjunct solar arc Pallas would normally signify a "libertarian" event, but here under the influence of Pluto she merely underscores the current "authoritarian" ethic.

Oakland Rave Fire

This post is off-topic from the normal astro-politics.  The Oakland party fire which has made national news is in my "backyard", so to speak.  One of the DJ's, missing and presumed dead, worked in my department in my music-industry job.  Here are some transits and progressions against the horoscope for the city of Oakland at the start of the fire.

Transiting Mars (fire), transiting Saturn (structure), transiting Jupiter (community?), progressed Saturn and Vesta (fire again?) all in aspect to Oakland Jupiter.

Transiting North Node conjunct Oakland progressed Venus -- karma meets value?  A renewal of what is precious?  Or is this a bizarre cosmic joke?  (Oakland is one of America's most Left-wing cities, and North-Node/Venus is an indicator of conservatism)

Turkey vs Syria

Recep Tayyip Erdogan has declared war on Syria, potentially triggering NATO to ally with Turkey.  If the US honors its agreements with NATO, this means war against Syrian ally Russia.  The coronation of Trump, who is open to working with Putin, cannot come soon enough if our civilization is to avoid nuclear war and survive. 

The Pluto-to-Pallas transit is the indicator of "ethical crisis".  It is the transit under which life-altering ethical decisions (including the decision to initiate violence) are made.  Here it is on Erdogan's chart.

Italexit "Quitaly" Vote

Doug Casey says this will be a big deal.  On December 4, 2016, an Italian referendum will occur, and voters in Italy will decide the fate of the sitting prime minister, Matteo Renzi.  Should "NO" be the result, it will be the first step in Italy leaving the EU, dropping the euro as a currency, and possibly regaining economic and political independence.  So, while American media have not mentioned this much as yet, a moment's thought suggests that Doug Casey might be right about its importance.

Transiting Jupiter return, trine Italy Uranus and Sun: renewed vigor and energized rebellion.  The Jupiter return is square Italy's Pallas, however, giving us one "authoritarian" vector.  The Pluto square to the Italy Jupiter return position does suggest some kind of massive disruption, one in which populist will (Jupiter in Libra) opposes entrenched power (Pluto in Capricorn). 

Transiting Sun semisextile Italy Pallas and quintile transiting Pallas; transiting Mercury conjunct Italy Pallas and progressed Pallas; transiting Pallas novile Italy Pallas:   lots of "libertarian" vectors.  It looks, in fact, very similar astrologically to the US election of Donald Trump

The polls suggest that executive power-grabbing referendum will fail, potentially triggering "Italeave".  The astrology appears to confirm this, but only time will tell us for certain.

Fidel Castro

Stefan Molyneux gives us his (great, as usual) summation of the life of Communist Cuban dictator Fidel Castro here.  As with other public historical figures, the horoscope of the man reflects not the PR but the man himself.  Here we parse the horoscope. 

ApollonianPallas ruled by Mercury which is widely parallel/conjunct Sun.
DionysianPallas trine South Node, quindecile Jupiter, septile Pluto and ruled by Mercury which is contraparallel Jupiter.  
Apollo is weak and Dionysos is strong.  On "The Axis of Good and Evil" this puts Castro in the "Criminal" quadrant, with a mild "Statist" lean.

CapitalistVenus widely conjunct North NodeVenus and Second House ruled by Moon which is square the Nodes
CollectivistVenus semisextile Neptune, Ascendant ruler Mercury at their midpoint.
Mixed signatures, particularly in men, tend to veer Rightward.  More on this later.

ConservativeNorth Node in Cancer
LiberalMoon square the Nodes (?) and semisquare Neptune
Normally, mixed culture signatures lean to the "liberal" side -- but squares to the nodal axis are a big wildcard.  Castro's regime was notably racist and (very) anti-gay, which we can account for by the North Node in Cancer plus the "Dionysian" Pallas signature.  Strong Moon plus weak Pallas generally signals racism, and perhaps homophobia as well.  If you are gay and love Castro and Che, you are a fucking idiot. 
Bloodbath Formula for this chart:
1.  Pallas trine South Node, quindecile Jupiter, septile Pluto and ruled by Mercury which is contraparallel Jupiter.  
2.  Venus semisextile Neptune, Ascendant ruler Mercury at their midpoint.
3.  Venus conjunct Pluto and ruled by Moon which is square Pluto.
4.  Moon square Pluto.
5.  Scorpio intercepted in Fifth House

The Verdict: 
criminal ethics + capitalist economics + cultural conservatism + bloodbath formula 
        --> homicidal racist criminal opportunist

This not the chart of a Left-wing true-believer.  It is one of a murderous gangster motivated not by ideology but by greed.  In fact, as revealed by Molyneux (in the linked video) and others, it was brother Raul Castro who was in fact the Soviet agent, not Fidel.  Raul's chart sports a Venus quincunx to the South Node, suggesting that he was the true Communist in the family. 

Pluto conjunct North Node:  power plus destiny.

Uranus in the Tenth in Pisces trine Venus in the Second:  personal enrichment through a revolution that is not what it seems.

Mercury in Leo in the Second square Mars and Chiron in Taurus in the Eleventh:  heroic language about wealth at odds with injurious public economic policy.

T-square with Sun in Leo in Third, Saturn in Scorpio in Fifth, and Jupiter in Aquarius in Ninth:  a sandwich with heroic, lofty, egalitarian rhetoric on the outside, concealing power and megalomania.

Moon in Libra in the Fourth square Pluto:  Castro imprisoned/murdered not only his opposition, but their wives as well.  If there is justice in the afterlife, this murdering racist homophobic criminal is sucking black cocks in Hell for eternity

US Media War

An image with annotations (click to view) outlining some of astrology behind the current MSM war against "fake" alt-news.

Not marked on the image but easy to find is transiting Chiron in Pisces square US Mars in Gemini, another reflection that the nation's communicative processes (Mars in Gemini) are undergoing challenges involving deception (Chiron in Pisces).

Thanksgiving / Black Friday Violence

Many news reports of fires and violent events yesterday; many headlines of Black Friday deaths this morning.  Earlier this week on Gab, another astrologer and I were warning this could happen.  "EyeAm" (the other astrologer) uses different reasoning than I do.  Here's mine: 

Bloodbath Formula for these events:
1.  Pallas ruled by Saturn which is parallel Pluto.
2.  see below 
3.  Venus conjunct Pluto.
4.  Moon square Pluto.
5.  Sun semisquare Pluto and ruled by Jupiter which is square Pluto.  

The second point, the Venus-Neptune connection, is fulfilled at any moment in the past day or so that Neptune and the South Node land in the Second House, or any angle triggers the midpoint of Neptune and Venus.  The other points of the Formula have been so strong that the weakness of the Venus-Neptune connection is compensated for. 

The epicenter of this storm of violence, in my opinion, is the Venus-Pluto conjunction which peaked a few hours ago and is now waning.
