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).

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 in 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 (Venus).

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
