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

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.
