Allison Mack Sex Cult Scandal

"Smallville" star Allison Mack has been indicted for sexual trafficking recently.  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 20 Scorpio is conjunct Mack's solar arc Pallas at 19 Scorpio.    

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 28 Aries opposite Mack's Jupiter at 1 Scorpio. 

Mack was born under a wide Pallas-Pluto conjunction.   This aspect is advantageous, and fairly common, for actors and entertainers... but this is in part because it lowers inhibition and restraint.

Munster Car Killings

From earlier in the month:

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas sesquiquadrate Pluto. 
2.  Venus square Nodes.
3.  Pluto (indirectly/widely) trine Venus.
4.  Pluto conjunct Moon
5.  Pluto square Sun.

US Bombs Syria

Trump has been better than any recent US President at keeping his campaign promises, but with this recent military escalation, he's breaking his most important promise:  to pursue peace. 

Transiting Jupiter (expansion, public policy) at 21 Scorpio and transiting Pluto (death) at 21 Capricorn are still forming a yod against the US Mars (aggression) at 21 Gemini and Donald Trump's Sun at 22 Gemini. 

Transiting Saturn (struggle) at 9 Capricorn is conjunct Trump's Pallas (ethics/intelligence) at 11 Capricorn, suggesting that he faces ethical challenges but not necessarily a total crisis (as might be suggested by a Pluto transit). 

Syria's solar arc Pluto (death) at 17 Scorpio is now conjunct Syria's Jupiter at 17 Scorpio and Ascendant at 18 Scorpio -- this regime will not go unchanged over the next few years.  But in the short term, transiting retrograde Jupiter will conjoin both the Syria Sun at 20 Scorpio and later the Syria Jupiter and solar arc Pluto.  The former may be a respite from current pressure, but the latter could be either positive and/or disastrous.

US Pulling Back From Syria?

Events such as this, which center on the reduction of the use of force, are "Pallas-positive".  They reliably tend to occur when Pallas is reinforced by transit and/or progression, by the Sun, Mercury, North Node, and/or Pallas herself. 

The configuration of the day is Pallas at 0 Gemini septile Sun at 10 Aries and Mercury at 12 Aries, and quintile the North Node at 13 Leo.  The recent Pallas ingress into Gemini is likely also significant, as Gemini is ruled by Mercury

Today's configuration similarly activates the charts of the US and of President Trump.  Transiting Pallas (0 Gemini) is square the US Pallas (26 Aquarius), semisquare the US Sun (13 Cancer), and square Trump's progressed Sun (1 Virgo).  Transiting Sun (10 Aries) and Mercury (12 Aries) are semisquare the US Pallas (26 Aquarius) and square Trump's Pallas (11 Capricorn).

US-Russia Tensions

Against the midpoint-composite for the USA (2p Jul 4 1776) and Russia (5:19:40p Dec 25 1991), transiting Chiron (28Pis48) has just entered the Seventh House (27Pis46) and conjoined the Vertex (28Pis55).

Tavis Smiley Allegations (2)

In this earlier post in the Tavis Smiley sexual misconduct saga, we failed to find a clear Jupiter-to-Pallas transit (unless we use a giant 17-degree orb for conjunctions).  Well, these days as the story progresses, Jupiter has recently stationed retrograde near its current 22 Scorpio position, which is within eight degrees of Smiley's 0 Sagittarius Pallas.

We're back to batting 1000 on this theory (that Jupiter-to-Pallas transits correspond with ethics revelations/scandals).

Islamic Terror: Trebes

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas trine Pluto. 
2.  Venus contraparallel Neptune.
3.  Pluto square Venus.
4.  Pluto quincunx Moon
5.  Pluto quintile Sun.

This is moderately strong, with the Moon not yet at the perfection of the aspect.  We might see more violence today.
