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".

Erdogan Consolidates Power

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

Transiting Pluto is conjunct Erdogan's Ascendant -- great power emerging.  Transiting Jupiter is square his Ascendent-Descendant axis and trine his own Jupiter, suggesting expansion and/of prominence.

Islamic Terror in Fresno;-gunman-at-large/1888575/

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

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

Trump Flips

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

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

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

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

US, China, NKorea Mobilizing

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

Trump Bombs Syrian Air Base

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Trump Tricked?

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

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

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

St Petersburg Metro Bombing

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

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

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