Bitcoin Price Spike

Today's nearly five percent jump in the price of Bitcoin may come courtesy of Jupiter, which is forming a trine with Bitcoin's Neptune (ruler of Bitcoin's Venus).  Jupiter stations retrograde soon, and will return to the same spot in late February.

Ft Lauderdale Airport Shooting

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas semisquare Pluto.
2.  Venus conjunct South Node.
3.  Venus semisquare Pluto.
4.  Moon mundane-square Pluto.
5.  Sun conjunct Pluto.  

The Moon-Pluto mundane-square is the weak link here, and this weakness is why we don't see multiple concurrent violent events as we do when the aspects are stronger.  As we will tomorrow when the Moon reaches a trine with Pluto and the other aspects remain in place.  I hope I'm wrong, but I think tomorrow could be bloody. 

Against the chart of suspected shooter Esteban Santiago, transiting Pluto is sesquiquadrate the natal Sun (ruler of Pallas) and squine (105 degree) to the solar arc Pallas.  We normally get a clear Pluto to Pallas transit on the charts of shooters -- this somewhat fits the bill but isn't the usual slam-dunk.

Istanbul Nightclub Shooting

An (Islamic) terror attack in Istanbul, Turkey.

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas semisquare Pluto and ruled by Saturn which is parallel Pluto.
2.  Second House ruled by Mars which is conjunct South Node.
3.  Venus novile Pluto.
4.  Moon ruled by Uranus which is square Pluto.
5.  Sun conjunct Pluto.  

This is a weak expression of the formula -- not a lot of concurrent violence elsewhere.  The chart of Turkey is under a lingering Pluto-to-Pallas transit which has been fostering bad behavior in recent years there. 

I plan to analyze an alternate chart for Islam to the one I've been using.  The one I've been using does not quite account for the body count we've been seeing from the "Religion of Peace".

White House Hissy Fit

Earlier this week, Barack Obama's US government enacted two unusual foreign policy moves, abstaining from a UN resolution about Israeli settlements and the extremely provocative move of expelling Russian personnel from the country (in response to "Russian hacking" for which no credible evidence has come to light).  Luckily for world peace, the measured Vladimir Putin has brushed off Obama's tantrum and once again made the lame-duck-in-chief look like a petulant, idiot child.

There have been an awful lot of planets in the 20-degrees-of-a-sign range this week (Jupiter, Saturn, Chiron, and Uranus).  This means that Mars on the charts of the US and Barack Obama (and to a lesser degree Vladimir Putin) is being triggered heavily by transit.   Themes we might expect from the planets involved are action (Mars), public/foreign policy (Jupiter), authority (Saturn), injury (Chiron), and surprise (Uranus).

All of this is very standard modern Western astrology.  On top of this, however, we've seen in numerous other blog posts that potentially catastrophic decisions are generally accompanied by a Pluto-to-Pallas transit on the chart of the "decider".  And while the US chart does show such a transit (same one as here), Barack Obama's does not.  Who, then, is behind our "White House Hissy Fit" if not the presumed "leader of the free world"?  I posit that it may be a man who is undergoing such a Pluto-to-Pallas transit at this moment, one whom many educated observers opine is the real "power behind the throne" for the Democrats: George Soros.

Bitcoin Price Spike

This is an image of today's Uranus direct station, opposite Jupiter, against the horoscope of Bitcoin.  I suspect this event, due to its proximity to Bitcoin's MC/IC axis, may be the epicenter of the recent dramatic price rise of the digital currency. 

I experienced an increase in my own fortunes a number of years ago under a Jupiter-Uranus aspect, and the good luck continued for some time after the aspect had peaked.  So I hope goes Bitcoin.

Stefan Molyneux

The fast talking, emotionally riveting, and oddly hilarious Stefan Molyneux has been a favorite (mostly) libertarian talk-show personality of mine for years now.  It is generally the case that the more libertarian a speaker is, the more "flat" he/she is as a speaker.  Consider the near monotone of Lew Rockwell or the inexpressive intonation of Ron Paul.  Tom Woods' vocal delivery is not quite as wooden, but note that he never loses his temper in many hundreds of hours of speech and debate (and also did not begin as a libertarian).  Once we get to the more dynamic and emotional speakers, we notice pockets of non-libertarian ideology or bursts of non-logical behavior; I put Stefan Molyneux in this category along with Alex Jones, Adam Kokesh, and others.

The degree of one's libertarianism (and coincidentally one's ability and tendency to disengage one's emotions from one's mental processes) is indicated in the natal horoscope, as are one's likely sociopolitical views in general.  You may peruse this blog and associated web site for thousands of examples.  So while the anti-mystical Molyneux may not believe in the validity of astrology, his horoscope nevertheless describes his personality in a way that no other personality-typing system can.

ApollonianPallas opposite Mercury, quindecile Sun, and ruled by Mars which is septile Sun and square the Nodes
DionysianPallas quincunx Pluto, squine Jupiter, and quincunx South Node.  
Apollo is slightly stronger than Dionysos on this one.  On "The Axis of Good and Evil" this puts Molyneux between the "Libertarian" and "Statist" quadrants, but because the Nodes are involved the "wildcard" factor is high. 

CapitalistVenus trine the North Node.
CollectivistVenus sextile Neptune; Second House ruler Neptune conjunct South Node.
Mixed signature here, probably leaning Rightward economically.

ConservativeNorth Node conjunct IC.
Liberal:  Venus rules IC and is sextile Neptune.
Normally these mixed culture signatures lean to the "liberal" side, but the North Node on the IC is an extremely strong indicator for cultural conservatism (think Pat Buchanan and Vladimir Putin). 

libertarian-ish + capitalist economics + cultural conservatism --> principle-driven conservative
Yes, he calls himself a libertarian and proclaims himself an anarcho-capitalist, and has given many wonderful discourses on the topic.  But he also wholeheartedly supports Donald Trump and lambastes Islam where many of his fellow an-caps fall short or silent. (This blogger finds himself falling into a very similar category)

Some other chart features:

Sun opposite Chiron/Saturn:  struggle/injury resulting from absent parent?

Venus conjunct Pluto in the Seventh House:  Venus rules (young) women and the throat, and Pluto rules psychotherapy and cancer.  Molyneux is married to a psychotherapist and recently recovered from throat cancer.  You can't make this stuff up. Uranus is also conjunct these points, suggesting an element of unorthodoxy.  In this case Molyneux is a stay-at-home father whose wife works outside the home. 

Jupiter at 29 Cancer in the Sixth House:  He talks a lot about race and race-oriented public policy.

Grand Trine with Neptune in the Ninth, Saturn in the Second, and Jupiter in the Sixth:  Molynuex combines popular illusions, economic policy, and racial issues in his work. 

Neptune conjunct South Node and trine Saturn:  born to be atheist/anti-mystical (I've done some research on the charts of atheists and found patterns).

Moon in the Twelfth:  alienation/separation from his "family of origin".

Unaspected Mercury (ignoring minor aspects, asteroids, etc.):  strikingly pronounced communication faculty, extremely difficult relationship with a sibling. 

Stefan Molyneux talks about turning 50 (he discloses his full birth data at the start).
