June 2013 Forecast




June 1:  Mercury semisextile Pallas.  Minor good news possible.

June 3-9:  (peak on 7th) Mercury, ruler of Pallas, square Pluto.
                     Coincides with a Venus-Neptune trine.  Bad news, maybe financial legislation?*
                     Minor risk of violent event on the 6th. 

June 10-14:  (peak on 12th) Mercury, ruler of Pallas, trine North Node.
                     (peak on 13th) Mercury, ruler of Pallas, parallel Sun.
                     Probably a mix of good and bad news, mostly good on the 12th and 13th. 

June 15-23:  (peak on 17th) Pallas quincunx Pluto.   
                     Probably a nasty news period. 
                     Around the 20th, Pluto opposes the Sun-Venus midpoint.  
                     Minor risk of violence on the 17th, 20th, 21st, and 23rd

June 24-30:  (peak on 26th) Pallas quincunx North Node
                     Sun in Cancer.  Moon which rules the Sun aspects Pallas almost daily.
                     Probably relatively peaceful, with good political news dribbling in. 

I consider last month's forecast to be more or less successful.  I missed a few aspects, but the theory seems to hold.  I will comments as news comes in during the month.

The methodology for these predictions is the same one I use for determining the political/ethical bent of a natal chart here.  For predicting violent events (here defined as the high-profile murder of non-government innocents) I look for the traits that are present in mass murderers found here

  3. About the Snowden leak of NSA snooping on Americans: clearly, this is awesome. Coincides with the Neptune retrograde station, which is something to keep an eye on in the future.

    Bad financial news (farm bill passes Senate):

    4. This past week has not been as horrible as I expected, but this may change if the immigration bill passes at 5:30pm today. Most libertarians support open immigration -- as do I -- as long as the immigrants work and do not collect government benefits. This bill, however, contains a provision reportedly mandating a national ID for all Americans on top of the usual boondoggles that go into all bills.

  6. http://buchanan.org/blog/the-pentagons-surrender-to-feminism-5630

    I agree with Buchanan here: in terms of building on operational military, the full integration of women is unbelievably stupid. As an anarchist, I oppose all expansion of the military on principle. However, after enough women are raped by their brothers-in-arms and mutilated by combat, the public may view the military in a different light. The result may be a temporary public distaste for war, as occurred with the Vietnam conflict.

    This is clearly very bad from the libertarian perspective. I messed up on the forecast by missing the Mercury (ruling Pallas) contraparallel with Pluto which goes for about a week. I hereby revise the forecast for the rest of the month to "not good".
