Kevin Spacey Sex Scandal

Spacey's progressed Pallas is at 9 Scorpio; transiting Jupiter is conjunct, at 4 Scorpio today.  So while by no means does every single Jupiter-to-Pallas transit trigger an ethics scandal, it's looking possible that all such scandals occur under such transits. 

PS (10/31/2017):  transiting Pluto at 17 Cap is square the (Starkman rectified) MC  at 16 Ari, marking, perhaps, the death of a long career.

Bitcoin Price Dip

When the Bitcoin price moves significantly in a short period of time, it's usually possible to tie the price movement to a current astrological transit.  Dramatic price explosions followed by nearly-as-dramatic crashes have tended to accompany Pluto transits.  The recent Saturn transits both came with temporary but very significant price drops, which came nearly two weeks before the perfection of each transit.  Short-term price jumps or dips of a day or so tend to come with inner-planet transits, often involving Mars (for dips) or Venus (for jumps).

This all makes the nearly 20% price dip which occurred over the past week or so, interesting, because it seems to have been to slow for an inner-planet transit..  and there do not appear to be any outer planet transits which occurred near this time frame.

That is, unless we count the asteroid Ceres (removal/loss) which has just completed a conjunction with the Bitcoin South Node (loss) at 9 Leo.  As we've seen in recent events, Ceres can be be a significant player.

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").
