Clinton Russia Scandal

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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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).

CapitalistVenus widely sesquiquadrate North Node
CollectivistVenus in Pisces
Looks like a Leftward lean, economically. 

ConservativeNorth Node in Cancer
LiberalMoon in Pisces and South Node in the Fourth House

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

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'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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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. 

Conservative:  None. 
LiberalMoon in Pisces in the Twelfth

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

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

Orlando Shooting

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas square Pluto.
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.

Islamic Terror: London Bridge

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas square Pluto.
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

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

Kabul Suicide Bombing

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas square Pluto.
2.  Neptune novile Venus.
3.  Pluto square Venus.
4.  Moon quincunx Pluto.
5.  Sun contraparallel 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

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.

Islamic Terror: Manchester

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
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

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., 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

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".
