US - North Korea Summit

https://abcnews.go.com/US/exclusive-trust-trump-opens-kim-historic-summit/story?id=55815265

Transiting Sun at 21 Gemini and transiting Mercury at 29 Gemini are trine the US Pallas at 26 Aquarius and the US solar arc Pallas at 26 Libra.  Transiting Pallas at 12 Cancer is trine the US progressed Pallas at 14 Cancer. 

Sun/Mercury/Pallas/NNode transits to Pallas are typical of peace agreements and the repeal of oppressive laws.  Interestingly, I do not spot similar transits against the North Korea horoscope, which suggests that the recent inroads to peace may center on US actions.

Anthony Bourdain Suicide

Celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain's apparent suicide this week is not an overtly political event, but helps add to the evidence presented in this blog that the asteroid Pallas represents intelligence, logic, and ethics.  We see this in dramatic fashion when transits/progressions involving Pallas are inevitably correlated with when persons or other entities commit acts that demonstrate a lapse or challenge to one's reason and ethics. 

As of his death, Bourdain's natal Pallas at 5 Pisces was under semisquare aspect by transiting Pluto at 20 Capricorn.  Transiting Jupiter at 14 Scorpio was widely trine his Pallas at 5 Pisces.  Pluto-Pallas events are indicative of ethical crises, and Jupiter-Pallas events are common during public scandals and suicides.

Kate Spade Suicide

Fashion designer Kate Spade's apparent suicide this week is not an overtly political event, but helps add to the evidence presented in this blog that the asteroid Pallas represents intelligence, logic, and ethics.  We see this in dramatic fashion when transits/progressions involving Pallas are inevitably correlated with when persons or other entities commit acts that demonstrate a lapse or challenge to one's reason and ethics.

As of her death, Spade's natal Pallas at 17 Cancer was under opposition by transiting Pluto at 20 Capricorn .  Transiting Jupiter at 15 Scorpio was trine her Pallas at 17 Cancer.  Pluto-Pallas events are indicative of ethical crises, and Jupiter-Pallas events are common during public scandals and suicides.

Morgan Freeman Harrassment Scandal

A-list actor and outspoken liberal Morgan Freeman has been accused of sexual harrassment of multiple women.  As always with ethics scandals, we are looking for a Jupiter-to-Pallas transit...  Jupiter for publicity and Pallas for ethics, generally accompanied by a major outer-planet transit which represents a significant change in status.

Transiting Jupiter at 16 Scorpio has recently been sextile Freeman's progressed Pallas at18 Capricorn.

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 0 Taurus square Freeman's Jupiter at 26 Capricorn.

Texas School Shooting

The Bloodbath Formula for this event is (oddly) weak or indirect on a number of levels:
1.  Pallas ruler Mercury square Nodes. 
2.  Venus ruler Mercury square NodesSecond House ruler Moon quincunx South Node.
3.  Pluto quincunx Venus (wide, bridged by Mars).
4.  Pluto trine Fourth House ruler Sun. 
5.  Pluto trine Sun.

Planned Parenthood Funding Cut

https://www.weeklystandard.com/john-mccormack/trump-to-cut-planned-parenthood-funding-administration-will-announce-friday

Ceres represents removal or disappearance (I collect evidence for this assertion on this blog).  The Fifth House represents children.  So Ceres in the Fifth House is a fair indicator for abortion.  Bearing these astrological correspondences in mind, then, we can contextualize the Trump administration's cut of federal funds for Planned Parenthood by looking at transits for both Trump and the US horoscopes. 

Transiting Mars at 0 Aquarius is now conjunct Trump's progressed Fifth House Ceres at 0 Aquarius. 

Transiting Chiron at 1 Aries is now conjunct the US progressed Fifth House Ceres at 1 Aries.

Israel-Iran Battles

https://www.timesofisrael.com/after-iranian-barrage-israel-launches-massive-counterattack-in-syria/

Iran (allegedly) attacks Israel.  Israel (confirmedly) attacks Iran. 

We've seen that under Pluto transits to natal or progressed Pallas, people and other entities often behave badly or face ethical challenges.  So in the face of new hostilities of unclear origin between Israel and Iran, it may be interesting to look for such Pluto-Pallas transits against the horoscopes of these nations and their leaders. 

Israel (May 14 1948 4:37pm Tel Aviv)
Transiting Pluto at  21 Capricorn square Israel Pallas at 25 Aries and trine progressed Pallas at 21 Taurus.

Netanyahu (Oct 21 1949 9:30am Jerusalem)
Transiting Pluto at  21 Capricorn squine Netanyahu Pallas at 6 Libra and squile progressed Pallas at 4 Scorpio. 

Iran (April 1 1979 3pm Tehran)
No clear aspect unless you count the semi-sextile. 

Assad (Sep 11 1965 Damascus)
No clear aspect
