The Bloodbath Formula for this event is (oddly) weak or indirect on a number of levels:
1.  Pallas ruler Mercury square Nodes. 
2.  Venus ruler Mercury square NodesSecond House ruler Moon quincunx South Node.
3.  Pluto quincunx Venus (wide, bridged by Mars).
4.  Pluto trine Fourth House ruler Sun.

Planned Parenthood Funding Cut

https://www.weeklystandard.com/john-mccormack/trump-to-cut-planned-parenthood-funding-administration-will-announce-friday

Ceres represents removal or disappearance (I collect evidence for this assertion on this blog).  The Fifth House represents children.  So Ceres in the Fifth House is a fair indicator for abortion.  Bearing these astrological correspondences in mind, then, we can contextualize the Trump administration's cut of federal funds for Planned Parenthood by looking at transits for both Trump and the US horoscopes. 

Transiting Mars at 0 Aquarius is now conjunct Trump's progressed Fifth House Ceres at 0 Aquarius. 

Transiting Chiron at 1 Aries is now conjunct the US progressed Fifth House Ceres at 1 Aries.

Israel-Iran Battles

https://www.timesofisrael.com/after-iranian-barrage-israel-launches-massive-counterattack-in-syria/

Iran (allegedly) attacks Israel.  Israel (confirmedly) attacks Iran. 

We've seen that under Pluto transits to natal or progressed Pallas, people and other entities often behave badly or face ethical challenges.  So in the face of new hostilities of unclear origin between Israel and Iran, it may be interesting to look for such Pluto-Pallas transits against the horoscopes of these nations and their leaders. 

Israel (May 14 1948 4:37pm Tel Aviv)
Transiting Pluto at  21 Capricorn square Israel Pallas at 25 Aries and trine progressed Pallas at 21 Taurus.

Netanyahu (Oct 21 1949 9:30am Jerusalem)
Transiting Pluto at  21 Capricorn squine Netanyahu Pallas at 6 Libra and squile progressed Pallas at 4 Scorpio. 

Iran (April 1 1979 3pm Tehran)
No clear aspect unless you count the semi-sextile. 

Assad (Sep 11 1965 Damascus)
No clear aspect

Eric Schneiderman Abuse Scandal

New York Attorney General and anti-Trump champion Eric Schneiderman has been accused of multiple counts of abuse of multiple women.  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 in late Scorpio has recently been conjunct Schneiderman's solar arc Pallas at 0 Sagittarius.    

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 29 Aries square Schneiderman's Jupiter at 26 Cancer.

Al Gore Sexual Assault Scandal

Former US Vice President, and Anthropogenic Global Warming messiah, Al Gore, was accused of two (additional) accounts of sexual assault last fall.  The story was buried in the media -- I only just learned of it.  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 10 Scorpio was quincunx Gore's Pallas at 8 Aries.    

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we had transiting Uranus at 25 Aries trine Gore's Jupiter at 28 Sagittarius and conjunct his 21 Aries MC.
