Barcelona Van Attack

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/4265241/barcelona-truck-crash-las-ramblas-latest/





Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas square Pluto.    
2.  Venus trine Neptune.
3.  Venus opposite Pluto.
4.  Fourth House ruled by Jupiter which is square Pluto.
5.  Sun quincunx Pluto, bridged by Mars.


My suspicion is that the Pallas-Mercury-Mars aspects also relevant, for the weaponization (Pallas) of a vehicle (Mercury and/or Mars). 


Update 5:19PM PST:  The Islamic State has taken credit for this event.  

A Note on Charlottesville

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oob8G5c5r8g

There is a Jupiter-Pluto square in the sky now, which is an aspect under which George Soros tends to stage his public-influence operations.  His operatives and his fingerprints are all over the political violence in Charlottesville this past weekend (the video linked above has some good research in it). 

Don't believe the hype.

North Korea Cancels Apocalypse

When "libertarian" events occur such as peace treaties, the cessation of hostilities, or the repeal of repressive laws -- Pallas is generally involved.  Specifically, configurations of Pallas with the Sun, Mercury, and/or the North Node appear on the charts for such events.  This is pretty much always the case, though there are probably other triggers such as Sun-Venus-Jupiter aspect triangles.

Today North Korea has walked back its threat to attack Guam.

Today's Mercury-Pallas trine forms aspects with the Sun and Pallas on North Korea's horoscope.  We also have transiting Venus and Jupiter forming aspects with the North Korean Sun.

Google Goes Evil

Google and its quasi-subsidiary YouTube have been behaving less like bastions of free speech and more like Communist censorship squads of late.  YouTube has upped its shadow-banning program of conservatives, and Google has fired a decorated engineer for sharing scientifically-backed arguments against "social justice" campaigns. 

When entities "come to the dark side", it's pretty much always going to be a Pluto-to-Pallas transit.  Other factors can also be evident.  Here we have transiting Pluto quincunx Google's Pallas and sextile Google's progressed Pallas.  Progressed Pallas is conjunct progressed Jupiter, which suggests ethics (Pallas) becoming public (Jupiter) -- the Pallas-Jupiter dynamic is generally present in ethics scandalsPallas is also under hard aspects from Chiron and Saturn, a situation that President Trump was in earlier in the year when he began apparently reversing his foreign policy

Netanyahu Ethics Scandal

Ethics scandals are generally linked to Jupiter-to-Pallas transits.  Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is currently undergoing such a scandal.  His progressed chart sports a Pallas-Jupiter square, which is much slower-moving and therefore likely to be much harder to get out of than the usual transit of Jupiter against natal/progressed Pallas

Scaramucci Fired

Trump's very recently hired comms director has just been fired

OK.  Where's Trump's Mercury (representing communication)?  8 Cancer. 

Where's transiting Ceres (representing the taking-away of things and people) right now?  8 Cancer. 

Filter this blog for the Ceres tag to see many more examples for this asteroid.  You'll find Ceres very consistently associated with events in which things or people are removed.

Bits

In the news in recent days:


1.  Obamacare saved by John McCain and turncoat Republicans:  

Transiting Jupiter is square the nodes and quincunx Jupiter of the Obamacare chart and Pluto has just retrograded across the Obamacare North Node.  But Pluto still has one more direct pass against the North Node for Obamacare in December, with Ceres quincunx the same North Node and transiting Neptune going direct while conjunct the Obamacare MC then.  That, and because the law itself is financially unsustainable, it's probably fair to say "it ain't over".


2.  White House personnel changes:

Saturn conjunct Trump's Moon ("struggle/structuring at home") and Uranus trine Trump's ASC (positive unexpected change).
 

3.  German Nightclub Shooting:

Bloodbath Formula for this chart:
1.  Pallas weakly trine Pluto which is contraparallel Pallas ruler Venus.
2.  Venus squine Neptune, North Node in the Second.
3.  Venus contraparallel Pluto.
4.  Moon ruled by Pluto.
5.  Sun quadrinovile Pluto.
Yes, it's weak.  The formula is stronger for higher-casualty events. 


4.  JK Rowling

The "Harry Potter" author's books suggest intelligence and thoughtfulness around ethical issues, as does her horoscope.  So what's with the recent turn into rabid, idiotic, social-justice virtue-signalling?  Transiting Pluto is now sextile her Saturn which rules her Pallas, and her Pallas is at the midpoint.  Sanity may return in a year or so.  Or so hopes this reader.

Chester Bennington Suicide

http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/7873783/linkin-park-chester-bennington-suicide

Suicides generally seem to be tied to hard transits from Jupiter to natal/progressed Pallas, sometimes also with transits from Pluto to Pallas.  Here we have transiting Jupiter opposite Bennington's Pallas, quincunx his progressed Pallas, and sesquiquadrate his solar arc Pallas.  Transiting Pluto is square his Pallas, trine his progressed Pallas, and sesquiquadrate his solar arc Pallas.  For any readers unfamiliar with this blog, Pallas represents intelligence, ethics and one's decision-making process.

NYC Transit Power Outages

http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/More-Transit-Problems-Pile-Up-Wednesday-and-They-Have-Nothing-to-Do-with-Penn-Station-435366683.html

In this past post, we saw a potential connection between Ceres-to-Pallas transits and power outages.  This week's power problems in New York City coincide with transiting Ceres quincunx the NYC progressed Pallas and transiting Pallas opposite the NYC progressed Ceres.  I associate Pallas with intelligence (and by extension, electrical power) and Ceres with the taking-away of things.

Jordan B Peterson

Psychology professor Jordan Peterson has risen in less than a year from an unknown if much-loved academic... to a world-class "rock star level" popular philosopher.  Most of his avid following (to which I belong) discovers him through his courageous defense of free speech against SJW language-policing, but then eventually becomes hooked by his deep mind-bending work on archetypes and psychology.  His precise time of birth is not yet in the public domain, but even without it we can glean some relevant aspects from his horoscope.




Pallas square the lunar nodes:  this should be no surprise if there is anyone out there familiar with both Peterson's work and my astrological explorations.  Peterson has spent most of his life exploring the roots and nature of ethics.  In astrology, Pallas rules ethics (an assertion which most of this blog defends with examples) and the lunar nodes rule (in a manner of speaking) karma.  In the whistleblower examples in this blog, we see that persons who become famous for growing to a level of higher ethical sophistication tend to have Pallas configured with the lunar nodes. 

Sun conjunct US-Sibley Mars:  a very literal astrological explanation for why Peterson's audience is largely young American men.  (My own Mars is also here at 21 Gemini.) 

Retrograde Mercury square Jupiter and Chiron:  effective use of his own vulnerability (Chiron) in public (Jupiter) speaking (Mercury) about the past (retrograde).  The Moon is probably also in this aspect pattern, for if he was born early in the day the Moon would be longitudinally in aspect to the pattern.  If he was born around noon, then the Moon is parallel Chiron. 

South Node conjunct Saturn opposite North Node in Leo:  one of Peterson's recurring topics is the self-actualization of the son/child through a process of rescuing his father from death/past. 

Venus squine Neptune:  Slight left-wing economic tendencies and heightened creativity. 

Mars in Taurus opposite Neptune in Scorpio:  defending capitalism against Socialist power/deception.

Mercury/Uranus/Neptune aspect triangle:  speech plus rebellion, plus/versus socialism/deception.  

Mars/Pallas square Saturn/South-Node in Aquarius:  ethical defense against regressive authoritarian social-justice-warriors. 

Neptune square the Nodes and Saturn:  a very typical "atheist" configuration.  Peterson deliberately does not describe himself as such, but interestingly enough defends Christianity using a highly novel and compelling Darwinist line of argument.  This aspect pattern is also consistent with his non-belief in astrology.

Trump Junior Quasi-Scandal

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/11/us/politics/trump-russia-email-clinton.html?smid=tw-share&_r=0&ncid=edlinkushpmg00000313

It's unclear to me whether the meeting between Donald Trump Jr with a Russian lawyer last year, reportedly to trade "dirt" on Hillary Clinton, is actually newsworthy... or is just another baseless attack on the Trumps from the Left.  My guess would be the latter.  Nevertheless, today's astrology against Junior's chart is consistent (somewhat weakly) with that of ethics scandals -- transiting Jupiter is in aspect to both his natal and progressed Pallas

George Clooney Flees Islam

George Clooney (multi-millionaire liberal Hollywood actor) has been one of the most vocal proponents of open immigration from third world countries to the West.  Now he is moving his family from Europe to the US, citing safety concerns due to increased terror attacks... which are now a problem largely due to open immigration from third world countries to the West.  Is Clooney intelligent and honest enough to realize his own hypocrisy?  My guess is "no" -- but the astrological indicator of ethics scandals (transiting Jupiter in aspect to natal/progressed Pallas) is evident enough.

Syria Cease-Fire Deal

In the charts of peace-treaty events, one can generally find transits of the Sun, Mercury, the North Node, and/or Pallas against the natal or progressed Pallas of the relevant nations.  The event chart by itself will also generally have the Sun, Mercury, and/or the North Node in aspect to Pallas. This week's US-Russia cease-fire deal over Syria is a case in point.


time unknown


The event chart has Mercury square Pallas and Sun (and also a Sun-Venus-Jupiter aspect triangle which some astrologers associate with peace treaties).




Transiting Sun is trine the US progressed Pallas and transiting Pallas is novile US progressed Pallas.




Transiting Sun is trine Russia progressed Pallas and transiting Mercury is trine Russia Pallas.

CNN Blackmail Scandal

In the wake the waning Jupiter quincunx to the US progressed Pallas, we now have a fifth scandal:  CNN has blackmailed a right-wing meme-producer into an apology, and half of the political internet is frothing in (arguably righteous) frenzy. 

Jupiter-to-Pallas transits are astrological triggers for ethics scandals.  Under these transits, the innocent have nothing to fear but the unethical run the risk of public exposure. 





Transiting Jupiter opposite CNN Pallas:  ethics scandal.

Transiting Saturn conjunct CNN Second House Neptune:  a struggle with CNN's primary asset -- its public image. 

Note that the CNN chart (inner wheel above) has Pallas opposite Pluto and sesquiquadrate Jupiter (very significant ethics problems) and Neptune square the Third House ruler Saturn (a tendency to deception). 


I have mixed feelings about conservatism and Donald Trump, but love to see justice done.

Che Guevara

"The Truth About Che Guevara" (video by Stefan Molyneux)

"I'd like to confess, Papa, at that moment I discovered that I really like killing."  -- Che Guevera in a letter to his father.

Psychopath, mass-murderer and rapist, idol to millions... this description actually fits a number of prominent historical personalities, of which Ernesto "Che" Guevara may be the most idiotic and irritating.  I won't bother to feign impartiality.  I deeply hate Guevara and his followers.  I hate them, because I hate the infliction of violence on innocents and those who inflict, support, and defend such violence.  They have no place in an ethical society. 



ApollonianPallas widely square Sun and widely trine North Node.
DionysianPallas quincunx Pluto and ruled by Saturn which is conjunct South Node. 
Apollo is weak and Dionysos is strong.  On "The Axis of Good and Evil" this puts Guevara in the "Criminal" quadrant, with a mild "Statist" lean.  Like his murder-buddy Fidel

Venus/Second-House/Economics
CapitalistVenus in Taurus in the Second House
CollectivistVenus quincunx South Node and parallel Neptune
Venus quincunx Neptune often indicates the hardest of the hardcore economic Leftists.  The quincunx with the South Node may perhaps indicate the same.  The Neptune parallel seals the deal. 

Moon/Fourth-House/Culture
Conservative:  None. 
LiberalMoon in Pisces in the Twelfth
Liberal. 

Bloodbath Formula for this chart:
1.  Pallas quincunx Pluto and ruled by Saturn which is conjunct South Node.    
2.  Venus quincunx South Node and parallel Neptune.
3.  Venus widely sextile Pluto (lunar Nodes conjunct midpoint).
4.  Moon trine Pluto.
5.  Sun-Venus midpoint sextile PlutoSun conjunct Algol.
OK, this one's a little looser than usual.  But clearly it's enough. 

The Verdict: 
criminal ethics + collectivist economics + cultural liberalism + bloodbath formula 
        --> homicidal Communist "hero of the people"


Some other points:

Pluto parallel North Node:  death-dealing is destiny.  

Uranus in Aries rising:  Revolucion!

Chiron in Taurus on the Second:  a real sore spot regarding wealth.  
Neptune in the Fifth in Leo square Sun:  the image at odds with the man.

Three Scandals - One Transit

Bernie Sanders and his wife are being investigated for banking fraud.
CNN has been caught red-handed admitting that the Trump-Russia narrative is "very fake news".
Obama Attorney General Loretta Lynch is facing jail time for last year's behavior.

Ethics scandals are generally accompanied by Jupiter-to-Pallas transits.  At the moment, we have transiting Jupiter quincunx the US progressed Pallas.



I also think that Jupiter-Pallas transits may also be correlated with large-scale cyber attacks.  There's reportedly one happening now

Bitcoin Update



This is a graph of astrological events against the chart for Bitcoin from this past April, through this coming.  The numbers on the graph correspond to the following past and predicted Bitcoin price events:

1.  Pluto station near the Bitcoin progressed Sun:  this is the start of the recent massive price run-up.  Pluto transits against the Bitcoin Sun have in the past indicated massive price spikes, so this is anomalous in that there has not yet been a crash. 

2.  Retrograde Jupiter square Bitcoin Sun:  new all-time high. 

3.  Direct Jupiter square Bitcoin Sun:  marking the end of Jupiter's inflating influence.  I sold here.  Significant price drop immediately afterwards. 

4.  Retrograde Saturn square Bitcoin Saturn:  I anticipate a price drop, possibly relating to the block scaling debate. 

5.  Direct Saturn square Bitcoin Saturn:  some kind of resolution to the previous event?

6.  Jupiter exactly opposes Uranus, both square Bitcoin Jupiter:  a potentially significant price spike??


I am not a financial advisor nor even a financial astrologer.  I have, however, had decent luck trading Bitcoin using astrological transits as a guide.  Play at your own risk.

Congressional Baseball Shooting

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Congressional_baseball_shooting

I wasn't going to write on this event, as only one was killed.  My friend the conservative blogger Promethean Antagonist suggested I take a look.  He sees the assault on Republican congressmen by a homicidal Bernie Sanders supporter as "first blood" in a new American civil war.  So I look a look, and found that transiting Uranus was merely hours after an exact square with the US (Sibley) Pluto.  Uranus is very much a "spark" astrologically, and Pluto is very much a "powder-keg".  Let's hope that cool heads prevail. 




There is a very weak Bloodbath Formula on the event chart, and for the concurrent shooting at a UPS facility in San Francisco.

Astrology of Alzheimers

Here is an article using a number of examples to link dementia to the asteroid Hypnos.  In this post I'll use mostly the same charts to make the case that dementia is related to Pallas/Chiron connections.  Maybe it's both.  Or neither, as you'd want a much larger sample to seriously make a case. 

Aaron Copeland:  Chiron conjunct Pallas ruler Saturn
Glen Campbell:  Chiron trine Pallas and sextile Pallas ruler Venus
Charlton Heston:  Pallas parallel Chiron
Ronald Reagan:  Pallas parallel and widely conjunct Chiron
Robin Williams:  Pallas novile Chiron which is square Pallas co-ruler Saturn. 
Charles Bronson:  Pallas exactly quadrinovile Pallas
Barry Goldwater:  Pallas quintile Chiron
Rita Hayworth:  Chiron at midpoint of Pallas and Pallas ruler Jupiter

Alois Alzheimer:  Pallas tightly conjunct Chiron

2.  Neptune semisquare Venus and square Second House ruler Sun.
3.  Pluto widely square Venus and quadrinovile Venus ruler Mars.
4.  Moon ruled by Pluto.
5.  Sun quincunx Pluto.

The Pallas/Pluto square is on the way out:  violence should be decreasing.

2.  Neptune semisquare Venus; South Node in the Second House.
3.  Pluto square Venus.
4.  Moon square Pluto.
5.  Sun contraparallel Pluto.

Some of the orbs are wide here, hence the low body count and lack of concurrent mass-killing events.

Paris Climate Treaty Withdrawal

http://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/trump-pulls-u-s-out-paris-climate-agreement-n767066

President Trump has withdrawn the US from the Paris Climate Treaty, yesterday.  Without a precise time of ratification for the treaty, there was no clear indication that a major negative event would occur to the treaty (i.e. no obvious transits against planets).  It is probably reasonable to assume that yesterday's transits and progressions against the treaty signing chart would have indicated hard transits against the angles, which are dependent on the exact time of the natal chart.

It also may have been possible to predict that Trump would withdraw from the treaty, had we known in advance when he was going to announce his decision on the treaty.  We could have done this by checking for Sun/Mercury/North-Node to Pallas transits and progressions against the charts for the USA and for Trump.  These would have indicated a potential "libertarian" event.  Here they are for yesterday:



Transiting Sun square US progressed Pallas; transiting Mercury square US Pallas.




Transiting Sun quincunx Trump Pallas; transiting Pallas sextile Trump Sun; transiting Sun quindecile Trump progressed Pallas; transiting North Node trine Trump progressed Pallas

1.  Pallas square Pluto.
2.  Neptune novile Venus.
3.  Pluto square Venus.
4.  Moon quincunx Pluto.

We also have the Moon-Pallas-Jupiter aspect configuration that I associate with planned explosions:  Moon trine Pallas, Pallas opposite Jupiter, Jupiter sextile Moon

Ramadan Killings

https://www.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/comments/6dn6bz/ramadan_bombathon_2017_edition_day_1_18_killed_by/

The above link reports three separate mass-killing incidents coinciding with the start of Ramadan.  Precise times for the events do not appear to be published, but we can guess what the charts will look like with a fair degree of confidence.  

Bloodbath Formula for these events:
1.  Pallas square Pluto.
2.  Venus decile Neptune: Venus ruler Mars square Neptune.
3.  Pluto square Venus.
4.  Moon probably sesquiquadrate or quincunx Pluto.
5.  Sun sesquiquadrate Pluto.

1.  Pallas square Pluto.
2.  Venus ruler Mars square Neptune.
3.  Pluto in the Second House.
4.  Moon square Pluto.
5.  Sun sesquiquadrate Pluto.

Also, the Moon (embodiment) is conjunct Pallas (intelligence/weaponization) and both are opposite Jupiter (expansion, explosion).  This aspect pattern struck me enough that I went back and re-studied the chart of two dozen more bombing events.  All the events I checked also had some kind of Moon-Pallas-Jupiter connection.   So we'll be looking for it in future bombing events by adherents of The Religion of Peace

Chris Cornell Suicide

http://www.cnn.com/2017/05/19/celebrities/chris-cornell-wife-statement-suicide/

When a person makes a life-altering ethical decision such as committing homicide or blowing the whistle on government corruption, the astrological culprit is almost always a Pluto-to-Pallas transit representing pressure or crisis (Pluto) of one's decision-making faculties (Pallas).  Sometimes, particularly in the case of suicides, the trigger is a discordant aspect from Jupiter to natal or progressed Pallas.  In this sad case, we have both. 



exact time unknown


Transiting Pluto is sextile Cornell's Pallas and transiting Jupiter is semisquare his progressed Pallas.  Transiting Mars, Moon, and Pallas all form aspects to Cornell's Pallas as well, suggesting that his decision-making faculties were under severe astrological stress.

Pallas Opposite Jupiter

Transiting Pallas has been opposite Jupiter in the sky as of late, the opposition having peaked in the past week.  Pallas represents intelligence, ethics, and logic (this blog and associated web site provides quite a bit of evidence for this assertion).  Jupiter is generally accepted as the ruler of the areas of philosophy, mass communications, belief systems, and the like.  When these two planets form a discordant aspect such as an opposition, we often get skillful use of Jupiterian facilities (media, law, etc.)... which are based on or which reveal ethical wrongdoing.  These aspects often resonate with the saying "the end justifies the means". 

During this period, three events have transpired on the national stage which may fit the transit.  First, the ransomware attacks which have afflicted computers around the world through a Microsoft XP flaw.  Here, Jupiter in Libra may represent an enemy (Libra) in the public communication system (Jupiter) acting against the ability to process information (Pallas).  Second, the release of new reports that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich provided massive amounts of information to Wikileaks, making him the probable cause of the DNC leaks last year (as opposed to Russian hackers).  Third, the current joint effort by the Democrats and the mainstream corporate media to accuse President Trump of improper collusion with Russia.   Some say the third event is a coverup for the second, as a full investigation into the Seth Rich murder may prove disadvantageous to the DNC.

Frogs and Conservatism


Frogs have been appearing with regularity in the past year as symbols, in mostly humorous contexts, of Donald Trump, the surging "alt-right", and of conservative push-back against the Left-wing gains of recent years.  Pepe the Frog, an apparent avatar of the Egyptian frog-deity Kek, is a regular meme in conservative/Trumpist internet circles.  Kek is sometimes also pronounced "cuck", a word which has reached common usage as an insult by conservatives. Venezuelans, crushed by Communist economic idiocy, are even using "Pepe the Frog" images as a Bitcoin-linked currency.  Psychology professor Jordan Peterson, whose speaking voice is often compared to "Kermit the Frog" from "Sesame Street", is now a YouTube star for speaking out against Left-wing political correctness.  Gab.ai, a Twitter-style social network which prides itself on not censoring political opinions, is now a Right-wing "Mecca" -- Gab uses a frog icon as its logo.  What's going on here?

Rex Bills' "The Rulership Book" lists the Moon and the sign of Cancer as being associated with frogs.  From this blog and associated web site, we can see a clear connection between Moon/Cancer and cultural conservatism. The frog, then, is a fitting symbol on the metaphysical level for a conservative resurgence.

Scarlett Johansson



Scarlett Johansson is, I believe, the currently highest-grossing actress in Hollywood.  With her recent appearance in "Ghost in the Shell", she continues a line of "innocent girl is transformed into a superhuman killing machine" roles.  These include the "Black Widow" character in the Marvel Comics movies and "Lucy".  A variant of this same theme is her role in "Her" in which she plays a warm and personable AI program who transforms into something less accessible.  Here's an attempt to use astrology to explain this recurring pattern as well as other facets of this extremely popular actress. 

South Node conjunct Sun and Moon in the Twelfth opposite North Node conjunct Algol in the Sixth:  this can literally be identity (Sun) and humanity/emotion (Moon) hidden (Twelfth House) in the past (South Node), becoming a practical (Sixth House) agent of destruction (Caput Algol, a fixed star at 25 Taurus).  The Sun conjunct the South Node in the Twelfth helps explain why so many of her character roles are "fantastic" or superhuman. 

Moon conjunct Saturn in Scorpio:  her characters also tend to come from very difficult family/childhood backgrounds.

Pallas widely conjunct IC and in the Fourth whole-sign House:  a "fighter's" placement as explained here.  This helps explain all the "butt-kicker" roles.

Venus out-of-bounds by declination, conjunct Jupiter and the midpoint of Sun and Pallas:  beauty that is exaggerated (Jupiter), atypical, outside the norm (out of bounds).  Venus-Pallas aspects are ubiquitous in female celebrities -- this is an unusual case in that it's a midpoint picture rather than the typical trine or conjunction.

Sun square Pallas:  all Sun-Pallas aspects increase the chances of a "crusader personality" or a persona centered around an ethic, cause, or skill.  The square may reflect an uneasy relationship with ethics (as seen in many of her roles).

Mars square Pluto:  a bringer of transformation and/or destruction; also one whose own active principle is subject to extreme change.

Pallas trine Pluto:  sexual magnetism as well as the possibility of being tempted away from ethical behavior by the "dark side".  This, combined with Neptune in the Second House and the Moon conjunct the South Node in the Twelfth explains why in real life, the actress is an unabashed authoritarian Leftist (like most of Hollywood). 


We sometimes look at the charts of celebrities here, for the sake of variety and to demonstrate some non-political interpretations of the asteroid Pallas.

Alex Jones Loses Children

Reddit reports that libertarian-ish media maven Alex Jones has lost a custody battle for his children.  His progressed Ceres is conjunct his Sun.  The Sun represents many things including children.  Ceres tends to be present when things or persons go mising, and tends to be in aspect to the Sun and/or Moon (generally both) when children go missing.

France Turning Right?

I don't claim to have a reliable methodology for predicting the outcome of political elections -- for those I defer to William Stickevers.  Using the findings from my independent research linking political ideology to astrology, however, there seem to be a number of factors suggesting that the nation of France will veer conservative over the next decade.  These factors appear to be stronger than similar factors which have suggested a libertarian/conservative turn for the US




These are transits/progressions for France for today. 

Transiting Pluto opposite France Moon (ruler of France IC):  extreme changes to culture may be afoot.  Note that France has had massive Islamic immigration for decades.  "Multiculturalism" is the status quo and therefore is now subject to change?

Progressed Pallas approaching France Sun/Mercury:  this is a waxing libertarian vector, similar to but stronger than the one the US has been under.

Simultaneous Power Outages

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-21/total-chaos-cyber-attack-feared-multiple-cities-hit-simultaneous-power-grid-failures

http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/A-day-without-power-Bad-traffic-big-losses-11090796.php

Yesterday saw three concurrent power outages in three major US cities.  The astrology for all three cities as well as for the US yesterday has at least one common factor:  a transiting Ceres-Pallas aspect against the natal chart.


 Transiting Ceres square US Pallas and quintile progressed Pallas.



 Transiting Ceres sextile NYC Pallas and opposite progressed Pallas.



 Transiting Ceres square SF Pallas; transiting Pallas semisextile SF Ceres.



Transiting Ceres binovile LA Pallas and decile progressed Pallas; transiting Pallas conjunct LA Ceres.


Pallas represents intelligence; Ceres tends to be present when things/people go missing.  Ceres/Pallas may thus represent temporarily "going stupid".

Erdogan Consolidates Power

In a constitutional referendum earlier this week, Turkey granted its president Erdogan increased (some say dictatorial) power.

Islamic Terror in Fresno

http://www.fresnobee.com/news/local/crime/article145234709.html
http://abc7.com/news/fresno-triple-shooting-leaves-2-dead;-gunman-at-large/1888575/




Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas ruler Mars trine Pluto (bridged by the Moon).
2.  Venus ruled by Neptune.
3.  Pluto in the Second House.
4.  Moon conjunct Pluto.
5.  Sun square Pluto (bridged by the Moon).

This is overall pretty weak, hence low body count and few reports of concurrent violence.  Interesting that it's a crescent Moon that's activating the formula on this chart, because the crescent Moon is the primary symbol for Islam.

Trump Flips

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-04-12/trump-flips-five-core-key-campaign-promises-under-24-hours

Most of President Trump's first days in office have been a dazzling (if contentious) string of fulfilled campaign promises including the cutting of regulations, efforts toward limiting immigration, and the successful appointment of a new Supreme Court justice who is considered to be a "strict constructionist".  Recent days have given us cause to wonder if the honeymoon is over.  Last week's missile strike on Syria angered and saddened those of us who supported Trump for his non-interventionist talk.  Now in the past day, he has reversed on a number of economic as well as foreign policy issues.




Economic and foreign policy issues?  Sudden reversals?  If you immediately thought of Venus and Uranus, then you'd have been right:  transiting Uranus is square Trump's Venus.

Of course, we might also expect some transit against his Pallas (representing intelligence and decision-making capacity).  Transiting Mars is sesquiquadrate his Pallas and quincunx his progressed Pallas.  Transiting Mars is also conjoining his MC, suggesting public action. 

Trump has Mercury square Neptune, and I have to say that as much as I like some of the things he's done, his (deliberately?) confusing messaging is getting annoying.

US, China, NKorea Mobilizing

The US, China, and North Korea all seem to be ramping up for potential conflict.  Is there an astrological indicator for this?  I say it's the Pallas-Moon connection, which suggests fighting capability.  Look at current progressions for all three nations below:

Trump Bombs Syrian Air Base

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4388834/America-launches-airstrikes-Syria.html



Above is a proposed chart for the bombing.  Some comments:

Sun-Pluto-Jupiter T-square:  Action (Sun in Aries) leading to big (Jupiter) explosions (Pluto).
Mars/Ceres-Pluto-Jupiter aspect triangle:  big explosions in which weapons capability (Mars) is taken away (Ceres).

Chiron and Venus in the First quincunx Moon in Leo in the Sixth:  the Moon here may represent national infrastructure;  Chiron is injury;  Venus is perhaps the hidden blessing that this bombing may lessen the pressure on Trump for a full-scale invasion?

Nine have been reported killed.  The Bloodbath Formula for this event is the same as for the St Petersburg Metro Bombing earlier this week except that the Moon is now in Leo (whose ruler the Sun is square Pluto).

Neptune Rising with no Ptolemaic aspects; Neptune contraparallel Sun:  things not as they seem?


There are voices on the Right explaining this action by Trump as a brilliant triangulation ploy to simultaneously massage the neocons, impress the Chinese, and distract public attention from other things he is doing.  These voices argue that the action is more "messaging" than a true escalation of the troubles in Syria:

https://akinokure.blogspot.com/2017/04/trump-is-not-cucking-on-regime-change.html

And to be fair, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have initiated far greater violence in similar circumstances -- President Hillary would almost certainly have started mobilizing for a full-scale invasion at this point.  This said, I do not approve of any initiation of violence, especially in what very much appears to be false pretenses.

Trump Tricked?

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/apr/06/donald-trump-conscience-syria-terrifying

Last week, the Trump administration signals that it will allow Assad to remain in power in Syria
This week, a poison gas attack on civilians occurs in Syria (I warned of a mass-casualty attack this week, here).  The usual establishment talking heads immediately blame the attack on Assad.  This is terribly convenient for the neocons and various other warmongers who are pressuring Trump to expand the wars in the Middle East.  It is terribly inconvenient for Assad, who by many reports was within weeks of containing the ISIS-affiliated rebels in his country.  Therefore, it appears that, based on motive, it seems likely that the gas attack was a "false flag attack" by the enemies of Assad and supporters of ISIS. 

Is Trump sharp enough to see what is (most likely) happening?  His recent about-face on Syria suggests, worryingly, that he may not be. 




Pallas in the horoscope represents intelligence and decision-making processes.  Here we can see that Trump's progressed Pallas is under very strong pressure by hard aspects from Saturn and Chiron

St Petersburg Metro Bombing

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4375518/Explosion-metro-St-Petersburg.html





Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas quintile Pluto.
2.  Venus ruled by Neptune.
3.  Venus quintile Pluto.
4.  Moon opposite Pluto (bridged by square from the Sun).
5.  Sun square Pluto.  

This is moderately strong, and all points of the formula other than the Moon aspect will remain in effect for a number of days.  I posit a very high likelihood of more mass-murder events this week.  

The Mars-Jupiter-Pluto aspect triangle is highly descriptive of a destructive explosion.  Mars is conjunct Ceres (Ceres is prominent when things or people are "taken away").

Assad Can Stay

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-03-31/mccain-furious-rex-tillerson-saying-assad-can-stay

The Trump administration has just quietly but more-or-less-officially dropped the Obama policy of regime change in Syria.  Movement towards peace is always, in my experience, accompanied by "Apollonian" Pallas aspects, involving the Sun, Mercury, and/or the North Node. 




The USA Sibley chart for the day of Tillerson's comments has transiting Mercury sextile US Pallas and semisquare progressed Pallas, transiting Sun semisquare US Pallas, and transiting Pallas "undecile" US Pallas with progressed Sun/Pallas conjunct the midpoint. 





President Trump's chart for the same day has transiting Mercury trine his progressed Pallas, transiting Sun square his natal Pallas, and transiting Pallas septile his Sun and quincunx his progressed Sun


This is what significant "peace events" look like astrologically -- a jumble of aspects involving Pallas/Sun/Mercury for the parties ending their aggression.  The chart for Syria has some nice Jupiter/Venus transits against it, of the type that any decent Western astrologer should easily be able to parse.  These all bode well. 

April 15 2017 Protests

By reader request, here's a look at transits for this coming April 15, when Black Lives Matter has protest events planned.  These events in the past have nearly always devolved into property destruction and violence.  Billionaire financier George Soros, seen by insiders as the puppeteer of the US Democratic Party, has been a major funder of Black Lives Matter.




Will we see massive deadly violence?  Let's look for a Bloodbath Formula:

1.  Is Pallas weakened by "Dionysian" aspects?  Yes, but they're very weak:  Pallas is decile the South Node, and Pallas ruler Mars is widely trine Pluto.  These are quite weak, and somewhat mitigated by the semisquare from Mercury to Pallas.

2.  Is Venus liquefied by Neptune and/or the South NodeYesVenus is is Pisces, ruled by Neptune which is also very widely conjunct Venus.

3.  Is there a Venus-Pluto contact?  Yes, weakly.  Venus co-ruler Jupiter is square Pluto.

4.  Is there a Moon-Pluto contact?  Yes.  There will be a sextile that evening.

5.  Is there a Sun-Pluto contact?  Yes, but very weak.  The Sun is ruled by Mars which is widely trine Pluto.

I am not completely ruling out a fatality or two, but I think chances are good that the day will pass without murder related to the protests.


Will we see significant property damage?  I haven't researched this as much as I have mass-murder events, and don't have a formula for it.  So we'll look at aspects for that day and guess:

Sun conjunct Uranus:  rebelliousness.

Mars conjunct Ceres and Algol, quincunx Saturn:  destructive action against structure, possibly involving theft or things going missing?  Then again, the Pallas aspects are not terribly destructive.

My guess is that we'll see some misbehavior, but perhaps not on the "front page news" level.  So I hope. 


Jupiter square Pluto:  associated generally with social movements/protests and very specifically with such events when they are funded by George Soros, who has these two planets conjunct in his horoscope.

RyanCare Fail


 
The transits for last Friday (when Obamacare replacement "RyanCare" failed, time of failure unknown) against Paul Ryan's chart are interesting. 

Transiting Sun conjunct Ryan Mars/Chiron: contention and injury.

Transiting Mars square Ryan Sun/Venus: more contention/conflict.

Transiting Ceres trine Ryan Mercury:  language taken away. 

Transiting Saturn square Ryan Pluto:  power, restricted. 




Transits that day against Trump's chart are also dramatic:

Transiting Mars square Trump Pluto:  a challenge to his power.

Transiting Uranus square Trump Saturn:  disruption of structure/authority.

Cernovitch explains why the RyanCare failure last week was actually a Trump victory.  Pat Buchanan somewhat agrees.  So perhaps this was less damaging to Trump than to his de facto enemy Ryan. 





Transiting Mercury conjunct Obamacare Venus:  good news.

Transiting Jupiter opposite Obamacare Venus:  possibly very good news.

The Republicans chose the wrong week to try to push this bill.   Or did they?  RyanCare is said to be not much different from Obamacare -- which suggests that it, too, would have been financially unviable.  If there's going to be an non-viable health care system, better it be under the banner of the other guy?

Bitcoin Update

A couple of notes on the price of Bitcoin

The now-recovering drop of the last few days (distinct from this one) appears to be connected with transiting Mars squaring the ASC/DSC and lunar nodes of the Bitcoin nativity. 

Depending on which house system we use, the transiting North Node will be leaving the vicinity of the Second House cusp in the next few weeks.  Simultaneously, the South Node will be conjoining Bitcoin's Venus.  Also happening next month:  transiting Pluto stationing within two degrees of Bitcoin's progressed Sun.  One might expect volatility next month.

London Terror Attack

As horrific as the London terror attack yesterday was, the body count was mercifully small.  Accordingly, the astrological Bloodbath Formula for the start of the event is quite weak.




Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas ruled by Jupiter which is square Pluto.
2.  Venus ruler Mars sextile Neptune.
3.  Venus widely septile Pluto.
4.  Moon conjunct Pluto.
5.  Sun widely septile Pluto.  

The shocking tenor of this event is no so much in the weak Bloodbath Formula as it is in the Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square, retriggered by the Moon and Mercury.

Bitcoin Price Dip

The price of Bitcoin dropped around ten percent in the past week, recovering a bit in the past couple of days.  Transiting Saturn has been conjunct the Bitcoin "Vertex" at 27 Sagittarius, peaking a few days ago.  This transit returns in early May and late November of this year, so perhaps we can expect similar price activity at those times.

Netherlands Vote

Yesterday, the anti-immigration candidate Geert Wilders lost the election in the Netherlands.  While Wilders' message of reducing violence by cutting Islamic immigration was a "libertarian" end, the "means" was authoritarian in nature.  So despite the fact that most libertarians lean Right, yesterday's strongly libertarian astrological signature did not necessarily point to a Right-wing win. 




Transiting Sun/Pallas/Chiron trine Netherlands South Node in Cancer and (probably) square Netherlands Moon:  an ethical adjustment (Sun/Pallas/Chiron) contributing to the loss of homeland (South Node in Cancer) and in conflict with native interests (Moon).  This Sun/Pallas/Chiron conjunction also opposes the US Sibley Neptune in the Ninth, suggesting ethical struggle versus laws regarding foreigners and corresponding to yesterday's court decision against the Trump travel ban in the US. 

Transiting Sun/Pallas/Chiron square transiting Saturn in Sagittarius:  ethical adjustment versus restriction of travel.
