Net Neutrality Halted

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-internet/u-s-regulators-ditch-net-neutrality-rules-as-legal-battles-loom-idUSKBN1E81CX

When "libertarian" events occur such as peace treaties or the repeal of freedom-restricting laws, the relevant horoscopes tend to have Sun/Mercury/North-Node transits/progressions to Pallas in one form or another.  Yesterday's transits against the US Sibley chart have the Sun and Mercury widely sextile the US Pallas and square the US progressed Pallas.  The transiting North Node is/was quincunx the US progressed Pallas.  Here the freedom being un-restricted is the right of internet service providers to sell their services in whatever way they see fit.

Tavis Smiley Allegations

https://www.thewrap.com/tavis-smiley-blasts-pbs-for-so-called-investigation-prompting-show-suspension-this-has-gone-too-far/

We've seen thus far 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 (usually a Uranus-to-Jupiter transit). 

Tavis Smiley's natal Pallas is at 0 Sag, and his progressed Pallas is at 19 Sag.  His natal Jupiter is at 26 Tau and his progressed Jupiter is at 22 Tau.  Transiting Jupiter is at 13 Sco and transiting Uranus is at 24 Aries.  We don't have a birth time for him, so we are missing some potentially key data points... but this is the first potential "miss" for the Jupiter-Pallas scandal theory I've found. 

Smiley completely denies the allegations, and there may be other relevant details which may explain things.  Or perhaps the Jupiter-Pallas thing actually does suggest guilt, and Smiley is actually not guilty. 

Omarosa Manigault Resigns

http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-adviser-omarosa-manigault-resigning-post-white-house/story?id=51766259

When Omarosa Manigault leaves the White House on Jan 20, transiting Ceres (loss/removal) will be at 14 Leo, conjunct Trump's progressed Mercury (communication) which will be at 13 Leo.

Larry King Sexual Misconduct Scandal

Talk show host Larry King has been accused of sexual misconduct 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 13 Scorpio is trine King's progressed Pallas at 14 Pisces.   

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 24 Aries opposite King's 23 Libra progressed Jupiter

The astrology is not necessarily indicative of guilt.

August Ames Suicide

https://www.reddit.com/r/The_Donald/comments/7i6p51/daily_reminder_that_sjws_are_allowed_this_kind_of/

times of birth and death unknown

Transiting Jupiter opposing natal/progressed Pallas is common in high-profile suicides. 

Transiting Pluto in aspect to natal/progressed Pallas is a transit suggesting an ethical crisis or a significant life decision point. 

Both transits are present for the recent suicide, prompted by online harassment by Left-wing "social justice warriors", of porn star August Ames.

Southern California Fires

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-usa-wildfires/unrelenting-california-wildfire-threatens-thousands-of-homes-idUSKBN1E011H

Off-topic/non-political, but relates to Ceres which is a topic we track here.

Against the Sep 9 1850 12pm Washington DC chart for the State of California, transiting Pluto (death) at 17 Capricorn is conjunct the California Part of Fortune (money) in the Second House at 19 Capricorn and the progressed Venus (value) at 18 Capricorn.  Transiting Ceres (loss/removal) at 17 Leo forms a quincunx with all three points.  Also both transiting Ceres and transiting Pluto form aspects with the California Saturn (structure) at 19 Aries, progressed Ceres at 17 Aries, and progressed Pallas at 19 Pisces (Ceres-Pallas appears to be a regular signature for power outages, which tend to occur in fires).

Trump Shrinks National Parks

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5144171/Trump-virtually-abolish-Bears-Ears-National-Monument.html

I've been making the case that Ceres is astrologically involved in virtually all events that involve the loss/surrender of a person or thing.  President Trump's recent move to reduce two national parks adds to the growing pile of supporting evidence for the case. 

The (Sibley) USA chart's Ceres (loss) has progressed to conjoin the IC (land), both points at 1 Aries.

Transiting Ceres at 17 Leo is trine Trump's South-Node/Moon (loss/land) conjunction at 20/21 Sagittarius.

James Levine Sexual Assault Scandal

Metropolitan Opera conductor James Levine has been suspended for sexual assault 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 11 Scorpio is conjunct Levine's Ascendant at 17 Scorpio, which in turn is quincunx his Pallas at 17 Aries. 

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 24 Aries square Levine's 28 Cancer Jupiter

Brian Ross Fake News Scandal

TV journalist Brian Ross has been suspended for false news reporting 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 11 Scorpio is quincunx Ross's Pallas at 12 Gemini.

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 24 Aries trine Ross's 25 Sagittarius Jupiter

Garrison Keillor Sexual Misconduct Scandal

Radio star Garrison Keillor has been fired for sexual misconduct 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 10 Scorpio is square Keillor's natal and progressed Pallas at 17 and 8 degrees Aquarius   

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 25 Aries square Keillor's 24 Cancer progressed Jupiter

Matt Lauer Sexual Harassment Scandal

TV host Matt Lauer has been fired for sexual misconduct 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 10 Scorpio is opposite Lauer's progressed Pallas at 12 Taurus.   

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 25 Aries opposite Lauer's 28 Libra Jupiter

Richard Branson Sexual Assault Scandal

Billionaire Richard Branson has been publicly accused of sexual assault 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 10 Scorpio is conjunct Branson's Pallas at 3 Scorpio. 

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here, transiting Uranus at 25 Aries is sextile Branson's progressed Jupiter at 29 Aquarius.  Underscoring the seriousness of this situation, transiting Pluto at 17 Capricorn is square his Mars at 16 Libra which rules his Aries MC -- his public image may not recover. 

The astrology is not necessarily indicative of guilt.

John Conyers Sexual Harassment Scandal

Politician John Conyers has been publicly accused of sexual harrassment 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 9 Scorpio is quincunx with Conyers's progressed Pallas at 12 Aries.   

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we don't have that, but transiting Jupiter is quincunx Conyers' Uranus.  Conyers is also undergoing a Pluto half-return, representing a type of death.

Oliver Stone Sexual Harrassment Scandal

Filmmaker Oliver Stone has been publicly accused of sexual harrassment 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 9 Scorpio is septile with Stone's Pallas at 29 Sagittarius and conjunct Stone's progressed Jupiter (sign ruler of his Pallas) at 13 Scorpio.  

The astrology is not necessarily indicative of guilt.

Charlie Rose Harrassment Scandal

Newscaster Charlie Rose has been publicly accused of sexual harrassment 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  8 Scorpio is square with Rose's progressed Pallas at 11 Aquarius.   

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here, transiting Uranus at 25 Aries is semisquare Rose's Jupiter at 12 Gemini. 

Also relevant is that transiting Uranus is conjunct his Mars, ruler of his Aries MC.  His public image has just suddenly shifted a bit. 

Sunday, November 19, 2017

Russell Simmons Sexual Assault Scandal

Hip-hop star-maker Russell Simmons has been publicly accused of sexual assault 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  8 Scorpio is opposite Simmon's Pallas at 8 Taurus.    If we had a birth time for him, we'd probably see some outer-planet transits and/or significant progressions involving angles.

The astrology is not necessarily indicative of guilt.

Sylvester Stallone Sexual Assault Scandal

Hollywood star Sylvester Stallone has been publicly accused of sexual assault 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  8 Scorpio is sextile with Stallone's Pallas at 4 Capricorn, and transiting Saturn in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius at 26 degrees is conjunct his progressed Pallas at 29 Sagittarius.   

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here, transiting Uranus at 25 Aries is opposite Stallone's progressed Jupiter at 28 Libra.  Underscoring the seriousness of this situation, transiting Pluto at 17 Capricorn is square his Jupiter at 18 Libra -- his public image may not recover. 

The astrology, though dramatic, is not necessarily indicative of guilt.

Al Franken Sexual Assault Claim

Comedian/politician Al Franken has been publicly accused of sexual assault 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.

Tehama County Shooting

http://www.kcra.com/article/3-dead-shooter-killed-near-tehama-county-school-6/13600667

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

Louis CK Sexual Assault Scandal

Comedian Louis CK was publicly accused of sexual assault 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  6 Scorpio is sextile with CK's progressed Pallas at 2 Virgo, and transiting Uranus is trine his Jupiter.  The Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  The astrology is not necessarily indicative of guilt, though in this case CK has admitted misconduct.

Saturday, November 11, 2017

Roy Moore Sexual Assault Scandal

Judge and US Senate Candidate Roy Moore was publicly accused of sexual assault 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  6 Scorpio is trine Moore's progressed Pallas at 6 Pisces, and transiting Uranus is quincunx his Jupiter.  This is not necessarily indicative of guilt.

We can perhaps attribute the rash of sexual assault scandals to Jupiter's recent ingress into Scorpio.  That these scandals are predominantly American may be an argument for using the Scorpio Rising chart for the USA (which I think is the one favored by mundane astrology guru William Stickevers).  

Friday, November 10, 2017

George Takei Sexual Assault Scandal

Star Trek star and liberal champion George Takei has been publicly accused of sexual assault.  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  6 Scorpio is square Takei's Pallas at 0 Aquarius, and transiting Uranus is conjunct his Venus and square his Jupiter.  This is not necessarily indicative of guilt.

3.  Venus square Pluto.
4.  Fourth House ruler Mercury and Moon both sextile Pluto at their midpoint. 
5.  Sun ruled by Pluto.

Kevin Spacey Sex Scandal

https://www.buzzfeed.com/adambvary/anthony-rapp-kevin-spacey-made-sexual-advance-when-i-was-14

Spacey's progressed Pallas is at 9 Scorpio; transiting Jupiter is conjunct, at 4 Scorpio today.  So while by no means does every single Jupiter-to-Pallas transit trigger an ethics scandal, it's looking possible that all such scandals occur under such transits. 


PS (10/31/2017):  transiting Pluto at 17 Cap is square the (Starkman rectified) MC  at 16 Ari, marking, perhaps, the death of a long career.

Bitcoin Price Dip

When the Bitcoin price moves significantly in a short period of time, it's usually possible to tie the price movement to a current astrological transit.  Dramatic price explosions followed by nearly-as-dramatic crashes have tended to accompany Pluto transits.  The recent Saturn transits both came with temporary but very significant price drops, which came nearly two weeks before the perfection of each transit.  Short-term price jumps or dips of a day or so tend to come with inner-planet transits, often involving Mars (for dips) or Venus (for jumps).

This all makes the nearly 20% price dip which occurred over the past week or so, interesting, because it seems to have been to slow for an inner-planet transit..  and there do not appear to be any outer planet transits which occurred near this time frame.

That is, unless we count the asteroid Ceres (removal/loss) which has just completed a conjunction with the Bitcoin South Node (loss) at 9 Leo.  As we've seen in recent events, Ceres can be be a significant player.

Clinton Russia Scandal

http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/268169/russia-hillary-bribes-extortion-uranium-and-lies-daniel-greenfield

This is old news, but it's been coming up anew in recent days. 

Astrologically, it's our old friend the Jupiter-Pallas transit.  Transiting Jupiter in late Libra and early Scorpio has been trine Hillary Clinton's Pallas at 28 Aquarius. The upcoming square and conjunction in the next few years should be fun to see.

Trump Attacks Obamacare

President Trump has launched a two-pronged executive-branch attack against Obamacare in the aftermath of yet another failed Republican bid to "repeal and replace".  One prong is an executive order to allow Americans to buy insurance across state lines.  The other is a plan to cut federal subsidies to insurers. 

Transiting Pluto (death/change) at 16 Cap is conjunct the Obamacare North Node (receptivity/karma) at 17 Cap.  As Pluto moves slowly, this aspect will probably bring even more changes to Obamacare this year. 

The transiting lunar nodes (change/karma) at 22 Leo and Aqu are square the Obamacare Pallas (intelligence/ethics) at 22 Sco.

"Buttman" Ben Affleck

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/films/2017/10/12/ben-affleck-dubbed-buttman-groping-allegations-emerge/

Affleck's Pallas is at 1 Virgo, his Jupiter is trine at 28 Sagittarius, and transiting Jupiter is currently at their midpoint at 0 Scorpio.  He scores as a liberal using my astrological methods, and has chart also sports a "bloodbath formula" which makes him a great casting choice for "dangerous guy" roles but also increases the chances of actually being one in real life. 

The Jupiter-to-Pallas transit is not your friend if you've been misbehaving.  That distant roar you may be hearing is the sound of millions of red-state conservatives laughing their butts off.

Mississippi Power Outages

Hurricane Nate has brought power outages to the state of Mississippi.  This year we've been testing the hypothesis that power outages are reflected by Ceres-Pallas transits against the chart of the local government.  In today's transits, transiting Ceres at 4 Leo is opposite the Mississippi Pallas at 29 Capricorn, and transiting Pallas at 11 Taurus is square the Mississippi Ceres at 7 Aquarius. 

We've checked seven consecutive power outages this year, and all fit the pattern.

Rapper Nelly Rape Charge

http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/07/entertainment/nelly-arrested-sexual-assault/index.html?linkId=43243723

Nelly (rapper) has been arrested for sexual assault.  This falls under the ethics (Pallas) scandal (Jupiter for publicity) category that has been coming up quite a bit these days.  It always seems to be a Jupiter transit against natal or progressed Pallas (though I can't say whether or not it attests to guilt).  In this case transiting Jupiter at 29 Libra is square Nelly's Pallas at 27 Capricorn. 

Friday, October 6, 2017

Weinstein Scandal

Movie king Harvey Weinstein today stands publicly accused of decades of sexual harassment.

If you're a regular visitor here, you know what to look for:  transiting Jupiter (publicity) in aspect to natal or progressed Pallas (ethics).

Weinstein's progressed Pallas is at 29 Pisces.  Transiting Jupiter is quincunx, at 29 Libra.

Stephen Paddock (Vegas Shooter)

time unknown


I don't have a time of birth for Stephen Paddock, the (presumed) perpetrator of the weekend's Vegas Concert Shooting, but even without it we can be fairly confident about where he probably fell on the political spectrum.  This is relevant for reasons we will get into shortly.

ApollonianPallas ruler Venus conjunct Sun.
DionysianPallas ruler Venus trine Pluto.
Ambiguous:  Pallas square the nodes.   
On "The Axis of Good and Evil" this puts Paddock in the "Statist" quadrant, but the square with the nodes is a wildcard.

Venus/Second-House/Economics
Capitalist:  probably nothing (depends on birth time). 
CollectivistVenus opposite Neptune.  
Ambiguous:  Venus ruler Mars square the nodes.
So, probably a Leftist economically. 

Moon/Fourth-House/Culture
Conservative:  probably nothing (depends on birth time). 
LiberalMoon trine Neptune
So, very probably a liberal.  
Pluto opposite Moon and trine Venus:  Pluto with both the major feminine planets is a feminist signature.   

Bloodbath Formula for this chart:
1.  Pallas ruler Venus trine Pluto.    
2.  Venus opposite Neptune.
3.  Venus trine Pluto.
4.  Moon opposite Pluto.
5.  Sun trine Pluto.

The Verdict: 
statist ethics + collectivist economics + cultural liberalism + probably feminist + bloodbath formula
        --> hard Leftist (probably)


Why is Paddock's probable political orientation important?  Because his transits for the shooting are not the usual Pluto-to-Pallas configuration for homicidal criminals.  Instead, we see transiting Jupiter opposite his natal Pallas, which is a transit which suggests ideologically motivated action.




So:  he's probably a hardcore liberal, if he's political at all.  He targeted a county music concert which is going to be peopled by conservatives.  The liberal-leaning media has been legitimizing violence against conservatives this year, and they refuse to release the contents of what looks like a suicide note in his hotel room.  Until we learn more, my leading theory is that he's a victim of "antifa syndrome", in which mentally unbalanced liberals are radicalized into violence against conservatives by CNN and other Soros-controlled media.  This theory has already been put forth by non-astrologers such as Colonel Tony Shaffer

Then again, the hard transit from Jupiter to Pallas is common for suicides.   Maybe the bastard just wanted to "go out with a bang". 

Thanks to (anonymous) for supplying the birth data.

Las Vegas Concert Shooting

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4939872/Active-shooter-reported-Las-Vegas-Mandalay-Bay-Resort.html




Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas trine Pluto.    
2.  Venus opposite Neptune.
3.  Venus trine Pluto.
4.  Fourth House ruled by Sun which is square Pluto.
5.  Sun square Pluto, conjunct Vindemiatrix ("the widow star").

Price Out

https://apnews.com/8c77dc02b5fa44128647dc4a6780d66c/Trump%27s-health-secretary-resigns-in-travel-flap

We've seen here, here, and here that when Trump loses or fires a staff member, a Ceres transit is the astrological correspondent.  For this particular event, transiting Ceres (removal/loss) at 1 Leo is opposite Trump's progressed Ceres at 1 Aquarius on the cusp of his Sixth House (health and service). 

I suggested there would be one or more scandals in this time frame here.

Hugh Hefner

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has died.  We all know him as the man who brought sexuality into mass-media, but in the 1960's and thereabouts he was also an ardent supporter of racial equality in a time when it was not always fashionable to be one.  He thus represents a "free speech" and "equal opportunity" champion of the likes of which we have not seen on the Left in recent years.  This libertarian streak as well as other facets of his character are visible in his horoscope.




ApollonianPallas square Mercury.
DionysianPallas widely conjunct Pluto.
Apollo is strong and Dionysos is perhaps somewhat less strong.  On "The Axis of Good and Evil" this puts Hefner on the "Statist" side of the "Libertarian" quadrant.  Pallas-Pluto aspects are  common in those who can strategically exploit Plutonian urges (such as sex).

Venus/Second-House/Economics
CapitalistVenus widely sesquiquadrate North Node
CollectivistVenus in Pisces
Looks like a Leftward lean, economically. 

Moon/Fourth-House/Culture
ConservativeNorth Node in Cancer
LiberalMoon in Pisces and South Node in the Fourth House
Liberal.  

The Verdict: 
libertarian-ish ethics + collectivist economics + cultural liberalism
        --> libertarian-leaning leftist or "Left Libertarian"
 
 
There is a Bloodbath Formula on the chart, but Hefner has not publicly displayed violent tendencies as his "Apollonian" Pallas aspect is enough to keep it in check.  It may, however, be an argument for a personality that is highly controlling of others.  
 
 
Some other points:
 
T-Square with Mars-Jupiter in Aquarius in the Fifth (entertainment through publishing of "communitized" sex) opposite Neptune in Leo in the Eleventh (imagery plus self-expression plus mass culture) square Saturn in Scorpio in the Third (tangible product plus sex plus communication).  

Moon and Venus in Pisces in the Sixth (daily work environment consisting of images of the feminine).

Uranus on the Seventh House cusp: disrupting (the traditions of) relationships/marriage.  

Mercury in the Seventh rules the MC: a career based on communications in the area of relationships.

Chiron in the Eighth: wounds/healing/adjustment in the arena of sex.  

 
If you look at transits for Hefner's death, you will see a preponderance of Chiron-related transits.  Chiron can kill.

Manafort Wiretap Scandal

http://dailycaller.com/2017/09/18/bombshell-feds-wiretapped-paul-manafort-before-and-after-the-election/

We've seen in previous posts that Jupiter-to-Pallas transits tend to coincide with ethics scandals, particularly when bad behavior (Pallas rules ethics) is revealed to the public (Jupiter). 

Well, transiting Jupiter at 25 Libra is conjunct the US solar arc Pallas at 26 Libra and trine the US Pallas at 26 Aquarius.  It's probably fair to expect more revelations of wrongdoing in America in the next few days.

St Louis Violence

https://apnews.com/82041d6fe9694ff8bec382499d149a7c/St.-Louis-braces-for-more-protests-over-cop's-acquittal

Pallas represents intelligence, logic, ethics, and one's decision-making and truth-determination processes.  We've seen from many previous examples that Pluto-to-Pallas transits tend to mark ethical crises and/or periods of very bad behavior.  We've also seen that hard transits from Saturn to Pallas also mark periods in which one's normal decision-making process is impaired.  So, bearing these in mind, transiting Pluto at 16 Cap is sextile the St Louis (Nov 9 1809) Pallas at 20 Pis (and very tightly sextile the Pallas-Pluto midpoint at just before 16 Pis) , and transiting Saturn at 21 Sag is square the St Louis Pallas

Florida Power Outage

http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/09/11/hurricane-irma-nearly-half-florida-in-dark-tampa-takes-pounding.html

I've been linking power outages with Ceres-Pallas configurations. Pallas for intelligence, Ceres for the taking away of things. Today, transiting Ceres is at 25 Cancer (a water sign, get it?) opposite the (March 3 1845) Florida Pallas at 0 Aquarius (the water bearer, an air sign).

JLaw Blames Hurricane on Trump

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=af-j1W9PWR0

President Trump has no shortage of faults, but it's probably safe to say that he does not cause hurricanes. 

When people do (or say) uncharacteristically irrational things, it's usually one or more hard astrological transits against their natal and/or progressed Pallas (representing intelligence).  So here are Jennifer Lawrence's transits for the day (or the day after, I don't know) the actress, who is normally known for being "down to earth", publicly displayed signs of changed mental function.  Jupiter is square her Pallas (normally a transit associated with ethical scandal), Saturn is quincunx her Pallas, and Ceres is conjunct her Pallas (something we see in power outages when cities "go dumb"). 




I'm probably still going to see that new movie of hers.

DACA to Die?

President Trump looks poised to let the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, lapse

Against the US Sibley chart, transiting Saturn (restriction) is currently square the US Neptune (foreign elements) and opposite the US Mars, resident of the Seventh House of "others" and ruler of the Twelfth House (foreigners) and Fourth House (homeland). 

Monday, August 28, 2017

Regarding Harvey


As Hurricane Harvey continues to devastate Houston and surrounding areas, the transits against the US Sibley chart are relevant.

Transiting Neptune in Pisces (representing water) is trine the US Sun.  Trines are not necessarily always "good".

Transiting Saturn (struggle) is square the US Neptune (water again) and opposite the US Mars.

Transiting Jupiter in Libra (air) is trine the US Mars in Gemini (also air).

Progressed Ceres (loss/removal) is conjunct the US IC (home/land). 

And of course, last week's eclipse over the US Moon probably threw a wrench into the works over all things ruled by the Moon (including land).  

Saturday, August 26, 2017

Gorka Out


In the vein of the departure of White House staff Scaramucci and Bannon, national security aide Sebastian Gorka's departure is also connected to Ceres-related transits on President Trump's chart.

Transiting Ceres (removal) is still square Trump's Jupiter (foreign policy) and the transiting Sun in Virgo ("aid") is quincunx Trump's progressed Ceres

Trump Escalates Afghan War

President Trump has announced a troop increase in Afghanistan.  This is contrary to his stated preference to reduce US involvement there both last fall and in recent weeks.

The full solar eclipse across his Ascendant today probably has something to do with this development.  Trump was born under an eclipse -- according to 20th century astrologers Charles Jayne and Lorne Johndro, natives born during eclipses tend to thrive under eclipse transits (unlike the rest of us).  So reports by liberal astrologers that the eclipse will kill Trump are probably the opposite of the truth if Jayne and Johndro (whose research is quite extensive) are correct.

Also, transiting retrograde Chiron at 27 Pisces is square Trump's progressed Pallas at 27 Sagittarius.  Similar past transits (such as this one) have caused Trump to act against his normal bent.  Perhaps he will rethink this strategy when Chiron makes the next direct pass against his progressed Pallas next spring, if not before. 

The eclipse was also opposite the US Sibley Pallas, suggesting an ethical "blackout" for the nation.  This is reflected both in the foreign policy change and in recent political violence.

Jordan Peterson Quasi-Rectified

I have not been trained chart rectification, the art of producing educated guesses about the birth time of a person or entity based on biographical details.  Nevertheless, in the course of astrologically "poking around", a potential birth time for Jordan B Peterson has come to my attention.

Peterson has no significant planets in the 16-19 degree range of the cardinal signs.  I'm fairly convinced that he would, then, have to be born with one or more angles (or the Moon), based on precise birth time, in that same degree range.  He has clearly experienced the effects of a Pluto/Uranus hard transit with his recent catapult into fame and notoriety.  This, in my experience, is most consistent with a Pluto-to-angle transit.  So this one consideration allows us to focus on potential birth times with 16-19 cardinal on one or both of the axes.

There are probably other times that would work for different reasons, but a birth time of 3pm or thereabouts would cause a great number of variables to line up.  Using a 3pm birth time:

The Moon in Libra is on his Ascendant, suggesting a person whose primary activity may be nurturing/fortifying others.  18 Libra rises, fulfilling the condition of an angle at 16-19 cardinal. 

Uranus-Pluto in the 11th House:  a disruptor of societal norms.

North Node in Leo in the 10th House:  increasing prominence with age.

Venus in Cancer is conjunct the MC, again with the nurturing theme, but also suggesting a representative of culture (Cancer).

Sun/Mercury in the Ninth House:  consistent with being a college professor and philosopher.

Pallas in the Eighth at the midpoint of the MC and Jupiter, quincunx the Ascendant.  This helps explain both his his prowess in psychology (Pallas/Eighth) and his very high recorded IQ (Pallas with Jupiter and the angles). 

Seventh House ruler in the Seventh square the nodes and Saturn:  consistent with how Peterson speaks of marriage as a deep, yet necessary, challenge.

Jupiter rules the Sixth House of workplace and is close to the cusp in the creative sign Pisces, sesquiquadrate Venus (representing aesthetics):   Peterson tends to cover his offices wall-to-wall in art. 

Jupiter and Chiron in the Fifth:  he has one aggressive/assertive child and another with significant health issues.  This astrologer has a client with the same conjunction in the Fifth, who also has two children with similar traits. 

The progressed Moon will have recently crossed over into the First House, suggesting increased action/prominence.

Chiron will have recently crossed into his Sixth House, reflecting recent shifts in his health.

Uranus will have recently moved into his Seventh House, reflecting his sudden fame and much-increased social interactions.

The South Node is in the Fourth House (culturally liberal tendencies) and Neptune is near the Second House cusp (an economically liberal vector):  Peterson self-identifies as more Left than Right. 

Progressed Ceres is conjunct his MC:  Peterson has just started a sabbatical.  This, for me, is a big one as Ceres is a consistent indicator of when things or people are "taken away". 

On Sep 27 2016, when Peterson launched the first video attacking Canada Bill C16 and began his ascent into fame, transiting Mercury was conjunct his progressed MC, Sun/Jupiter was square his solar arc Mars in his Ninth House, and the transiting Moon was conjunct his 11th House Uranus.


It's still entirely possible he was born at a different time, but for the time being I'm going with 3pm or thereabouts for Jordan Peterson's birth time.  Feel free to chime in with a better idea -- I am, as always, open to constructive comments.

Bannon Out

We saw White House communications director Scaramucci fired when transiting Ceres (removal/loss) conjoined President Trump's Mercury (communication).  Now that Ceres at 16 Cancer is square Trump's Jupiter (ideology) at 17 Libra, White House Chief Strategist and ideologue Steve Bannon is out

And, yes, transiting retrograde Pluto is at 17 Capricorn, also square Trump's Jupiter

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.
