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.
