Russia Liquidates US Treasury Holdings

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6003457/Mystery-Russia-LIQUIDATES-holdings-Treasury-securities.html

Using this chart for Russia, transiting Neptune (dissolution) at 16 Pisces has just entered the Russian Eighth House (debt/foreign-assets).  Transiting Ceres at 12 Virgo has just conjoined the Russian Jupiter (ruler of the Eighth), at the cusp of the Second House (finances), and is opposite transiting Neptune.

Leslie Moonves Sexual Misconduct Scandal

Media mogul Leslie Moonves has been accused of sexual misconduct.  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 13 Scorpio is semisquare Moonves' Pallas at 29 Libra.

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 2 Taurus square Moonves' progressed Jupiter at 2 Aquarius.

Trump to Revoke Clearances?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2018/07/23/trump-looking-into-revoking-security-clearances-for-brennan-other-top-obama-officials.html

When President Trump loses or fires a staff member, it tends to be during a Ceres transit to his chart.  See here, here, here, here, here, here, here, and here. While revoking the security clearances is not exactly the same as losing/firing staff, it involves a similar theme of loss/removal.  Transiting Ceres at 10 Virgo is in a waxing trine with Trump's Pallas at 11 Capricorn today.

George Michael Suicide?

https://www.thesun.co.uk/tvandshowbiz/6830783/george-michael-killed-himself-fifth-suicide-attempt-lover/

As of his death, Michael's progressed Pallas at 16 Virgo was under trine aspect by transiting Pluto at 16 Capricorn.  Transiting Jupiter at 20 Libra was sextile his natal Pallas at 21 Leo.  Pluto-Pallas events are indicative of ethical crises, and Jupiter-Pallas events are common during public scandals and suicides. 

Whether or not George Michael's 2016 death was suicide, the astrological transits are consistent with the suicide signature proposed on this blog.  

James Gunn Tweet Scandal

(Left-wing) "Guardians of the Galaxy" film-maker James Gunn has been fired for posting (very) offensive Tweets.  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 13 Scorpio is trine Gunn's Pallas at10 Pisces.

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 2 Taurus opposite Gunn's Jupiter at 28 Libra.

Justin Trudeau Groping Scandal

Left-wing Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been accused of sexual misconduct.  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 13 Scorpio is opposite Trudeau's Pallas at17 Taurus.

A Uranus-to-Jupiter transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals.  Here we have transiting Uranus at 2 Taurus trine Trudeau's progressed Jupiter at 0 Capricorn.

Trump EPA Guy Resigns

https://www.infowars.com/scott-pruitt-resigns-as-epa-administrator-trump-says/

When President Trump loses or fires a staff member, it tends to be during a Ceres transit to his chart.  See here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.  In this case Ceres at 3 Virgo is conjunct his Ascendant at 29 Leo and his progressed Sun at 1 Virgo.

1993 Pierre Beregovoy Suicide

In keeping with the line of thought from the last post, here's another suicide example from "Moment of Astrology".  (i.e. there seems to be a recurring pattern of transits involving both Jupiter and Pluto to natal or progressed or solar arc Pallas of the native in suicide events)

Transiting Pluto is square the native's solar arc Pallas, and transiting Jupiter is novile/semisquare the same solar arc Pallas (and approaching a trine to the natal Pallas). 


suicide location is actually Nevers, France


Again, I do not claim to have disproven Mr. Cornelius' assertion that there is (probably) no quantifiable astrological signature for such events.  I merely raise the possibility that such a signature may exist, one which involves heretofore unconsidered variables.

1983 Arthur Koestler Suicide

Geoffrey Cornelius in his fascinating and groundbreaking work "Moment of Astrology" notes a number of times that no consistent astrological signature for suicide had been found as of the writing of his book.  He suggests in the book that such a signature may never be found because astrology itself does not work in a quantifiably consistent manner.  I am undecided on this question. 

That said, I've examined the charts for a number of suicides on this blog, and there seems to be a recurring pattern of transits involving both Jupiter and Pluto to natal or progressed Pallas of the native.  I do not claim to have disproven Mr. Cornelius, but for entertainment value I extract a suicide chart example from his book (Arthur Koestler, 1983) and point out that my proposed Pallas pattern appears in the chart.  


location of death incorrect, time of death unknown
