May 2013 AstroLibertarian Forecast

This forecast (and any to follow) is an experiment to see if I can use my political classification theory to forecast political events.  For example, the recent Boston Marathon bombing and subsequent police lockdown of the city coincided with Pallas conjunct the South Node, trine Pluto, and ruled by Venus which on that day was in a hard aspect against Jupiter.  Using my method (including other aspects not listed), I would interpret the chart of that day as astrologically "authoritarian" and potentially violent. 

May 1-9:  Pallas continues to be within an eight degree conjunction with the South Node until May 18.  The Pallas-Pluto trine is subsiding.  The State may attempt to continue to push its recent spurt of expansion attempts in the first two weeks of the month but may not do so well. 

May 9 to May 11: a tight triple conjunction between Pallas, the Sun, and Mercury forms.  Likelihood of good news on the liberty front for these few days, and possibly a couple of days before and after.  Sun remains conjunct Pallas within eight degrees through the 29th, but Mercury is gone by the 16th. 

May 14-15: Mercury and the Sun form sesquiquadrate aspects to Pluto while still in conjunction with Pallas.  Some not-so-great news to follow the good news. 

May 18: Venus, ruler of Pallas, quincunx Pluto.
May 18-26: Pallas sesquiquadrate Pluto, peaking on the 22nd.  Some kind of victory here for the forces of evil, perhaps starting on the 18th and culminating around the 22nd?  On the 18th, Venus (quincunx Pluto) rules Pallas and the Sun, and is widely square Neptune which in turn is square Venus' ruler Mercury.  This fits the astrological profile for a possible mass-murder or other violent event which would then become a tool for those with political agendas (gun control, expanded police powers military action, etc.) -- this type of event has been occurring a few times a year recently.  Luckily the South Node is getting out of range and the Sun is still around, so hopefully it won't be earth-shattering.  Better yet, I'll be completely wrong.  

May 24: Mercury conjunct Venus, ruler of Pallas. Some good news. 

May 28: Pallas crosses into Gemini, transferring rulership to Mercury, which is quindecile Pluto.  Possible bad news, hopefully minor. 

This is my first attempt at an astrological liberty forecast -- we'll just have to see how it works.  I plan to add comments below as my various forecasts succeed or fail.

  1. My current guess for the "good libertarian news" around the 9th to the 11th is the public release of 3d-printable pistol plans by Cody Wilson and Defense Distributed. Non-libertarians might view such an event with suspicion or fear, but the libertarian view would be that it moves the world one step away from the next Nazi Germany or Maoist China, both of which relied on gun confiscation to oppress their peoples.

    1. May 10: I was dead wrong about the 3D pistol plan which was released previous to this date-range and then -removed- by the Feds just now (not before 100,000 downloads and placement on Mega and the Pirate Bay where they probably can't be removed). But:

      Bearing in mind that with all its problems, Iran is a historically non-aggressive nation and, in context, increases in their military capability are likely to decrease the chances of war.

    3. The recent spate of PR troubles for Herr Obama (IRS, press spying, etc.) might well be attributable to the Pallas-Sun-Mercury triple conjunction. Obama's chart is currently under attack by both Pluto and Saturn, as well.

  2. May 5: Israel bombs Syria. Venus, ruler of Pallas in Taurus, is entering a sesquiquadrate with Pluto. Pallas herself is still trine Pluto and conjunct the South Node, though the Sun is approaching Pallas as well (a probable mitigating factor). I missed the Venus trigger for this event but did mention the Pluto and South Node factors in my post.

    1. Internet sales tax has just passed the Senate. Again, I missed the Venus sesquiquadrate to Pluto, but the event is consistent with the theory.

      So far the notable violence accompanying the violent astrological configuration for today is on the far side of the world, and is being under-reported.

      Thankfully, not quite as much bad political news as I expected. Pallas is still within five degrees of the Sun, which I forgot to factor in.

      Venus is opposite Pluto, which is also opposite Mercury ruling the Sun. These on top of the Pluto sesquiquadrate Pallas today fit my proposed profile for violence. The theory seems to be fine, but it's pretty labor-intensive to use it as a forecasting mechanism. One would have to examine the chart for every individual day to avoid missing things like I've been.

    8. I can't entirely account for the recent attack by Maoists on Indian government officials. Certainly we're still within the Pallas-Pluto sesquiquadrate but the other factors I look for in mass-murder events are weak or missing. Perhaps the criteria are different if the victims are government officials perceived to be an enemy, rather than innocents.
