Infowars Under Attack

This is Alex Jones' chart (birth time unknown) on the day of the announcement linked above.

Transiting Pluto conjunct Jones' Pallas and square Jones' Chiron:  overwhelming force triggering injury (Chiron) and a crisis of decision (Pallas).  This is triggered by transiting Mars conjunct Jones' Chiron and square Jones' Pallas and transiting Pluto

Transiting Saturn conjunct Jones' North Node in Sagittarius:  Jones' destiny as a public firebrand stifled.

Milo in Trouble?

I've avoided analyzing Milo's chart here because I can't find the birth time... but I'd say his libertarianism comes from the Mercury-Pallas square and his status as outrage-magnet comes from his Libra Sun conjunct anoretic Libra Pluto conjunct Saturn in Scorpio.

Today retrograde Jupiter is conjunct his Sun ("backwards" publicity) and transiting Saturn (restriction) is conjunct his Neptune (image). Transiting Jupiter is also square his progressed Pallas -- Jupiter-to-Pallas transits are the rule when questionable ethics come to the public eye.  Personally, I hope he can brush this one off -- Milo has plausible deniability here and is an important voice in today's political culture.

"Very Fake News"

President Trump held an impromptu press conference this week in which he (calmly) excoriated the Mainstream Media.  He downgraded CNN from "fake news" to "very fake news".  Team Trump rallied across the country and liberals became re-enraged.

Transiting MC conjunct transiting South Node:  authority (the corporate mainstream press?) plus loss.

Transiting Sun conjunct Trump Part of Fortune:  a fortunate day for the "God Emperor"?

Transiting Mercury conjunct Trump Ceres in Aquarius:  Mercury is speech/communication, and I find Ceres often active when something is "taken away".  Has Trump taken something away from the (Aquarian) mass-media? 

Transiting Mars opposite Trump Jupiter:  is this the start of a public-communications offensive?

Obamacare Fatally Wounded?

Above is the Obamacare chart on the day of the Trump executive order which gave the IRS the option to stop enforcing the Obamacare individual mandate.  Here transiting Uranus (interruption) is tightly conjunct Obamacare's Venus (funds). 

Above is the Obamacare chart on the day of the IRS policy change that tax filers no longer need specify their health insurance status.  Here transiting Pallas (ethics) is conjunct the Midheaven, representing the triumph of ethics in the context of the healthcare law. 

And above is the Obamacare chart on the day that Reason and Drudge reported the IRS policy change to the public.  Pallas has moved from the Midheaven to Obamacare's Jupiter (publicity) and now the "cat is out of the bag" and Americans who read conservative/libertarian media are now aware that they can plausibly avoid the Obamacare individual mandate penalty. 

For all of these charts, transiting Pluto (death?) is conjunct Obamacare's North Node (receptivity) and the progressed Moon (health of the entity?) is square the nodal axis (karma).  This also means that the progressed Moon is forming a square aspect with transiting Pluto.  I wonder if the perfection of this aspect will be the final death-knell for the healthcare law.

Travel Ban Ruling

President Trump's travel ban has been blocked by a federal appeals court.

Transiting Pallas conjunct US progressed Sun and Pallas:  the ruling reduces government coercion and is therefore "libertarian". 

Progressed Moon in Sagittarius conjunct US Ascendant:  here come the foreigners?

Transiting Jupiter and Uranus in aspect to US Fourth House Chiron:  an unexpected boon to forces injurious to the homeland?  or the healing of such forces?

Transiting Sun in Aquarius conjunct progressed Mercury and solar arc Mars:  combat in the societal arena via speech/language.

Transiting Saturn in Sagittarius square US Neptune and solar arc Pluto:  authority plus foreigners against US power and public image.

Bitcoin Drop

The price of Bitcoin dropped nearly ten percent in the past day on the news that Chinese exchanges have temporarily halted bitcoin withdrawals.  The price is still relatively high. 

The most obvious astrological transit for the day is Mercury return (two degrees Aquarius) on the Bitcoin horoscope (Mercury representing information/news).  Mercury on this chart rules Bitcoin's Second House Saturn (representing financial struggle among other things). 

The price did not respond negatively to the Jupiter retrograde station this week (unless this drop is a delayed reaction).  This suggests to me that we may have a couple of months of stability or even growth based on these factors.

Trump Rattles Saber

President Trump, in the past day or so, has lashed out with varying degrees of severity, at Iran, Israel, Australia, UC Berkeley, and indirectly at Russia.  This is unsettling (except in the case of UC Berkeley, which I applaud).  Perhaps it is meant to be unsettling, and the constant alternation of the "carrot" and the "stick" is how the commander-in-chief advances his agenda.  The question:  will it work without causing a disaster?

Bitcoin Price Jump

The price of Bitcoin has jumped up nearly 10 percent in the past two days.  I'm eyeing two astrological factors. 

1.  Jupiter is about to station retrograde this weekend, and it is currently conjunct Bitcoin's IC and trine Bitcoin's Neptune, ruler of Bitcoin's Venus.  Might this week's price jump be a prologue to another "spike and crash" centered on this event?

2.  The transiting North Node has started a two month stay on Bitcoin's Second House Cusp.  This vector might mean relative highs or even price growth for a couple of months. 

We'll just have to see if anything happens this weekend.
