Tom Brokaw Harassment Scandal

Newsman Tom Brokaw has been accused of sexual harassment.  As always with ethics scandals, we are looking for a Jupiter-to-Pallas transit...  Jupiter for publicity and Pallas for ethics, generally accompanied by a major outer-planet transit which represents a significant change in status.


Transiting Jupiter at 19 Scorpio is trine Brokaw's Pallas at 19 Cancer.    

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 29 Aries conjunct Brokaw's progressed Jupiter at 24 Aries. Progressed Jupiter and natal Mars (at 22 Aries) are also receiving a square from transiting Pluto (21 Cap) and Mars (22 Cap).

North Korea Peace?

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6154655/north-south-korea-agree-denuclearisation-kim-jong-un-moon-jae-in/

North Korea's progressed Pallas is retrograde at 08Gem03, about half a degree of arc from the natal Pallas at 07Gem31 -- returning home after a very long departure.  Regular perusers of this blog know that breakouts of peace are extremely strongly correlated with Pallas-positive transits and progressions.

Avicii Suicide

EDM star Avicii's apparent suicide last week is not an overtly political event, but helps add to the evidence presented in this blog that the asteroid Pallas represents intelligence, logic, and ethics.  We see this in dramatic fashion when transits/progressions involving Pallas are inevitably correlated with when persons or other entities commit acts that demonstrate a lapse or challenge to one's reason and ethics. 

As of his death, Avicii's solar arc Pallas at 10 Taurus was opposite his Pluto at 12 Scorpio.  Transiting Jupiter at 20 Scorpio was sesquiquadrate his progressed Pallas at 5 Aries.  Pluto-Pallas events are indicative of ethical crises, and Jupiter-Pallas events are common during public scandals and suicides.

Toronto Van Attack

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6125470/toronto-pedestrian-crash-truck-injuries-pavement-mounted-latest/

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas trine South Node. 
2.  Venus quintile Neptune.
3.  Pluto  trine Venus.
4.  Pluto quincunx (wide, bridged by Mars/ASC) Moon
5.  Pluto trine Venus, ruler of Sun.




Maybe the Mars/Pluto conjunction relates to the use of a vehicle as a weapon, as in this event

Tennessee Waffle House Shooting

https://www.tennessean.com/story/news/2018/04/22/antioch-tn-waffle-house-shooting-naked-suspect/540033002/

Bloodbath Formula for this event:
1.  Pallas trine South Node. 
2.  Venus squine South Node and quintile Neptune.
3.  Pluto  trine Venus.
4.  Pluto opposite Moon
5.  Pluto trine Venus, ruler of Sun.




This event is unusual in that it does not carry a clear Pallas-Pluto aspect.

Allison Mack Sex Cult Scandal

"Smallville" star Allison Mack has been indicted for sexual trafficking recently.  As always with ethics scandals, we are looking for a Jupiter-to-Pallas transit...  Jupiter for publicity and Pallas for ethics, generally accompanied by a major outer-planet transit which represents a significant change in status.


Transiting Jupiter at 20 Scorpio is conjunct Mack's solar arc Pallas at 19 Scorpio.    

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 28 Aries opposite Mack's Jupiter at 1 Scorpio. 

Mack was born under a wide Pallas-Pluto conjunction.   This aspect is advantageous, and fairly common, for actors and entertainers... but this is in part because it lowers inhibition and restraint.

US Bombs Syria

https://www.infowars.com/breaking-trump-approves-airstrikes-against-syria/

Trump has been better than any recent US President at keeping his campaign promises, but with this recent military escalation, he's breaking his most important promise:  to pursue peace. 

Transiting Jupiter (expansion, public policy) at 21 Scorpio and transiting Pluto (death) at 21 Capricorn are still forming a yod against the US Mars (aggression) at 21 Gemini and Donald Trump's Sun at 22 Gemini. 

Transiting Saturn (struggle) at 9 Capricorn is conjunct Trump's Pallas (ethics/intelligence) at 11 Capricorn, suggesting that he faces ethical challenges but not necessarily a total crisis (as might be suggested by a Pluto transit). 

Syria's solar arc Pluto (death) at 17 Scorpio is now conjunct Syria's Jupiter at 17 Scorpio and Ascendant at 18 Scorpio -- this regime will not go unchanged over the next few years.  But in the short term, transiting retrograde Jupiter will conjoin both the Syria Sun at 20 Scorpio and later the Syria Jupiter and solar arc Pluto.  The former may be a respite from current pressure, but the latter could be either positive and/or disastrous.
