Beyond Cambridge Analytica! How Your Private Information is Weaponized

Wed, 21 Mar 2018 16:22:00 +0000

From the March 20, 2018 Thom Hartmann call-in program:

allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="" width="560">


And with another GOP government shutdown looming this Friday night, remember the shutdown of 2011 which caused a first-ever credit rating downgrade of the US government? Here's the fussy post I published then which included the crisis-turning point-special task YOD pattern in Secondary Progressions of the Republican Party with the YOD pointing toward the GOP's SP Ascendant at the degree of Bankruptcy--and their 'special task' is ongoing (with aid from Democratic enablers, financiers, corporatists, and gullible Trump voters) for if a shutdown occurs now it will be the third since Trump crept into the White House.

So under Donald Trump, the collapsing of America continues which is one reason I fret over the August 11, 2018 Solar Eclipse @19Leo with its theme of towers collapsing and subsequent rebuilding after the dust settles (Predictive Astrology, B. Brady). And this is the Prenatal Eclipse of the 2018 Midterm Elections!


Eclipse Horoscope of the 2018 US Midterm Elections

Tue, 20 Mar 2018 17:38:00 +0000

Here you see the DC Horoscope of the Prenatal Solar Eclipse of the 2018 Midterm Elections, aka, 'The Tower Eclipse' which perfects on August 11, 2018 in the 2 New North Saros Series:

The 2018 US Midterm Elections will be held Tuesday November 6, 2018 with 36 states and 3 territories actively balloting, last I heard--and all House seats are up for grabs.

For the curious, this horoscope with details can be found in a previous post.


Bannon's Psychological Warfare: Cambridge Analytica

Mon, 19 Mar 2018 13:54:00 +0000

Monday March 19, 2018: Anyone who wonders at the astounding "win" of Donald Trump in the November 2016 Presidential Election must also wonder, how many ways Trump and his minions used to cheat their way into the White House. That's my personal opinion which you, dear reader, may or may not share but that's okay because this is America where citizens have the right to their own opinions and where dissent is considered patriotic especially if it's based on concern for the common good.

So is it time for yours truly once again to abandon my Facebook account? Well, it's tempting for several reasons but also because alarm bells should have loudly sounded for Facebook staff when data miner Cambridge Analytica spirited away the personal information of 60 million or more FB users for the purposes of skewing the 2016 election (and who knows what else). Trump and company are the sort of people who will do anything to 'win' and we all know how important 'winning' is to Mr. Trump who simply cannot stomach 'losers'. We also know how important his image is to him so apparently looking as if you won an election qualifies him to boast and beat his chest over what appears to be the truth even when it's false. Yes, it's lies and illusions as Trump's natal Mercury-Neptune square just keeps on giving!

A peek at Trump's current progressed aspects reveals a Moon-Pluto conjunction (12Leo+) in SP 10th house and his fear of secrets being uncovered is one thing real about him these days as evidenced by his panicked tweets. Well, it's understandable for Moon-Pluto denotes panic and paranoia--and a potential for illegitimate children which may be one secret he desperately wants to keep hidden (if one or more children exist).

As for Steve Bannon, his steering of Cambridge Analytica reveals one of the primary factors in his relationship with Donald Trump and Bannon;s touted role in the 'election' of Trump. Of interest in this saga is The Guardian's ongoing feature The Cambridge Analytica Files. From March 18, 2018, here's a notable entry: 'I made Steve Bannon's psychological warfare tool': meet the data war whistleblower, Christopher Wylie.

Then on December 15, 2017, the Wall Street Journal informed us that Mueller Sought Emails of Trump Campaign Data Firm...Cambridge Analytica. Excellent.

Yes, some people will do anything to 'win', even if they have to use underhanded tricks. So if you haven't, please check out a previous post concerning Steve Bannon's natal Jupiter, a post in which we discover Bannon's total lack of conscience thanks to an unaspected Saturn.


America's 1776 Aries Ingress Horoscope

Sun, 18 Mar 2018 18:03:00 +0000

March 18, 2018: here is a view of the Aries Ingress (Spring Equinox) horoscope of March 19, 1776 (Sun to Aries Point) which shows a New Moon @1Aries ("A Woman Has Risen from the Ocean, a Seal Is Embracing Her"), and marks the beginning of a new cycle of activity and, as we know, heralds the founding of a new nation in 1776--order out of chaos. As you see, the midpoint of the revolutionary pair, Uranus and Pluto conjoins the Sun-Moon midpoint. Uranus-Pluto denotes the "collapse of the old order, construction of the new" and "revolution" (Ebertin).

The Sun Aries-Moon Aries combo? Mavericks and crusaders! Saturn exalted in Libra and rising? Difficulties at the beginning but ideals will be put into a proper form with laws for guidance.

Of course, 'a woman rising from the ocean' hints at a newly invented America and her founding motto, E pluribus unum, 'out of the many, one' and the 'seal' refers to America's Great Seal with its Illuminati symbols as accepted by the era's enlightened thinkers determined on the betterment of society (Sun sextile Uranus). These were our nation's Founding Fathers whose contrary ideals inspired them to become advocates for the common man (Sun sextile Pluto). To me the fact that Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto were not yet discovered in 1776 is of little if any consequence since a Neptune-Pluto trine was above their heads and denotes those who can respond to the invisible realms and forces whether they are aware of it or not!

So when looking at transits to America's natal horoscope (of which there are many versions set for various hours on July 4, 1776), this cosmically timed Aries Ingress 1776 chart is an alternative and may be a chart to keep in mind.

Here's Part One of The Story of America's Great Seal.

Astro-Notes on the Firing of Andrew McCabe

Sat, 17 Mar 2018 18:00:00 +0000

March 17, 2018: by now you've heard of the Friday night firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe a mere 26 hours before his scheduled retirement from the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Attorney General Jeff Sessions did the deed no doubt at the direction of Donald Trump who desperately wants to shut down the Mueller investigation into Trump and Trump Organization finances, funding and, shall we say, other activities. Andrew McCabe was born on March 18, 1968 and was fired 2 days prior to his 50th birthday when he had planned to retire from service. Naturally, astrologers see that Mr.McCabe is due for his Chiron Return which occurs for everyone around the age of 50, give or take a year. Mr. McCabe's Return is aptly significant, as we see, for he was born with Sun and Chiron conjoined in late Pisces (man on a mission). Being fired from his long-held law enforcement position of authority hours before retirement and negating the receipt of a subsequent pension can certainly be considered a Chirotic wounding to his sense of mission in life and to his ego (Sun-Chiron). And if we check for additional planetary activation, we find that transit Uranus in Aries, planet of disruption, separation, shocks, explosive events, and anger, is in process of visiting McCabe's natal Mars (23Aries) suggesting a period when endeavors (and employment) are halted or discontinued, highly charged activities are in force, shocks are felt, missteps may be taken (on his or another's part), and regrettable situations exist. Even danger cannot be ruled out. Related Posts include: Jupiter in Virgo and the Ethics of Robert Mueller and The Prenatal Eclipse of Robert Mueller..Curiously, vibes of the Mars-Uranus pair of premature action, brutality, and radical reform were also active when former FBI Director James Comey testified on Capitol Hill in 2017 as you may see in the horoscope of Comey's Testimony June 8, 2017. The post displays both Trump's and Comey's ('noon') natal charts with June 8, 2017 planets and you can see that Mr. Comey's natal Uranus conjoined and activated Trump's natal Mars (aggression, conflict, motivation, energy, action) and Trump's Ascendant (his nibs himself) just as the transiting Dragon's Head North Node of destined encounters placed them all in a public forum televised from Capitol Hill for Mr. Comey's testimony was delivered in public as you remember. March 18, 1968: Sun in Pisces and Moon in Scorpio the whole day through: Now Andrew McCabe's natal Sun Pisces-Moon Scorpio 'loves a mystery' and is a double-Water blend of complex emotions and subterfuge with both signs tending to become involved with secrecy and hidden activities--perfect for membership in a spy agency like the FBI. Acutely perceptive and intuitive, Mr. McCabe can 'read people' and their deeper motives and shows endurance during times of adversity. Plus, his personality combo has the ability to "come back fighting" as we see in Mr. McCabe's released statement describing some truths the Trump Organization and Jeff Sessions wish the public to ignore. In closing, perhaps the creative work of two natives who share the Sun Pisces-Moon Scorpio combination of conscious-unconscious energies may add to our understanding of Andrew McCabe: "Longfellow's poem The Secret of the Sea" (the sea, Neptune's oceanic province along with veils, masks, leaks, lies and spies!) and "John Steinbeck's novel The Grapes of Wrath." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey). Yes, with Trump's Mars Rising, it does feel as if wrath is all around. Wonder what kingpin Trump is trying so hard to hide? Today in Trump News: Trump Calls McCabe a "choirboy" and suggests corruption at the highest levels of the FBI. And here's the NYT article on McCabe's Firing. Also of interest: This Day in History - FBI Founded July 26, 1908. Above blurry photo of Andrew McCabe; official portrait, wiki public domain [...]

The Natal Planets of Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 18:23:00 +0000

For former KGB agent, now leader of Russia, and idol of Donald Trump Vladimir Putin there are two possible natal horoscopes currently available, one a rectified version done in 2000 by Claude Weiss. Both charts may be speculative due to uncertain birth times. Here are both charts' data: Vladimir Putin: October 7, 1952 9:30 am MSK St. Petersburg, RU with 3Sco10 rising and 21Leo12 at Midheaven, the Goal Point, indicating such ambitions as leadership, approval, ego satisfaction, and shining on the global stage. Plus, Leo at MC places his natal Pluto (22Leo43) there and who could disagree that plutonian power and control (including rigid military control) are a major part of his goals? Of course, astrological Pluto also hints at potentials for manipulation, fear, propaganda, rape, subterfuge (a former spy), sabotage, and assassination (even poisoning), as part of Putin's Career picture observed by the entire world (MC). Additionally, his Pluto conjoins natal South Node, a Saturnian point (large social changes affect others who are disregarded). Scorpio rising denotes Mars and sub-ruler Pluto as chart-ruler/s which makes sense due to the Mars-Pluto combination of cruel, ruthless, forceful, even brutal, energies. The rectified version of Putin's natal chart (same data but a birth time of 4:10 pm MSK) shows 17Cap15 rising--where transit Pluto has now crossed into 1st house--and 5Sag46 at MC suggesting that massive wealth is a goal (which has been attained) along with freedom and expanded territory (ex: from 2014 see Ukraine mobilizes troops amid crisis with Russia). In this version of his chart the angles are ruled by Saturn (ASC--a difficult childhood?) and money-grubber Jupiter (MC), the boundary breaker. If this is the correct natal chart, with tr Pluto in Capricorn at ASC, Mr. Putin is 'feeling his oats' of power and handling things 'his way' as he gains control and a more powerful public image. Excerpt from a previous post: "Mr. Putin's natal Sun Libra-Moon Gemini blend (Air-Air) indicates that he may spread himself too thin to accomplish all his goals but perhaps it somewhat depends upon who aids him in his current take-over endeavors." To this I add that this is a personality blend of charm and clear thinking, but can be superficial and emotionally immature (Harveys). Trump and Putin Sittin' in a Tree... In both versions of Putin's natal chart, his Gemini Moon and Jupiter-ruled Mars (26Sag42) are out-of-bounds and thus cut off or separated in some way from the rest of his planets. This hints at mother troubles or separation, and a warring Mars off on his own and up to who-knows-what. Putin's natal Saturn @27Lib27 precisely conjoins the natal Jupiter (Station Direct @17Lib27) of Donald Trump. This denotes an enduring relationship between them with money, banking, and ideology featured. Rounded up to '18Libra' in the Sabian Symbols for the conjunction of societal planets Jupiter and Saturn, we find "Two men Under Arrest"...and we also find America's Progressed Mars Station Retrograde degree (as of 2006). To Putin's 9:30 am Ascendant (3Sco10), noted above, add US SP Saturn Rx @3Scorpio--retrograde since 1996 during Bill Clinton's legal turmoil when his presidential authority and irresponsible actions were forced into a glaring public spotlight, thus weakening America's authenticity and credibility in the world. Fiesty Fightin' Mars, Planet of Violence and Conflict Now here's a prominent date for Vladimir Putin: March 12, 2018 which timed his latest Mars Return (26Sag42) and denotes the beginning of a new 2-year cycle of activity. And perhaps you remember that Mr. Trump enjoyed his current Mars Return on August 31, 2017 and with Trump's Mars @26Leo, we see that a fiery trine of aid and benefits exists between the warrior planet of Vladie Putin and Donnie Trump.

Capricorn Mike Pompeo named new Secretary of State

Tue, 13 Mar 2018 16:28:00 +0000

March 13, 2018: CIA Director Mike Pompeo Nominated for Secretary of State, Tillerson ousted An accurately timed natal horoscope of newly named Secretary of State Michael Richard Pompeo is available for viewing with a Rodden Rating of AA. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson (March 23, 1952) has been fired by Donald Trump and goodness knows theirs was a rocky relationship all along. Mr. Pompeo may be an easier fit for quirky Uranian Trump but we'll see if Mr. Pompeo's Syzygy Moon @8Can01 conjoining Trump's natal Mercury allows for comfort between them or conflict as they pursue plans for fulfillment (Sun-Moon = Mercury) which may or may not be sympatico. Since Mr. Trump has a stated preference for conflict in all things White House their ability or inability to work together will become apparent as the months (weeks, days, hours) proceed. Michael Richard Pompeo December 30, 1963 1:32 pm pst Orange, California And when we look at the planets of the March 13, 2018 announcement we find multiple connections to Pompeo's natal planets. Examples in no particular order: authority planet Saturn to natal Sun (senior officials demand their due, responsibilities and/or rewards given, lack of ego-satisfaction); powerful Pluto to Pompeo's strongly opinionated Mercury-Mars conjunction in governmental Capricorn (greater personal power and control, karmic relationships especially with men; potential for sexual escapades; karmic conditions); Mercury to natal Jupiter (international concerns and more travel); Neptune opposite natal Pluto (power structures under threat, power is eroded); and Moon spotlights Pompeo's natal Venus @8AQ47 in natal 10th house of Career and Public Status (favorable publicity). Plus, transit Neptune has been within orb of opposing his natal Uranus for some time indicating a period when ideals conflict with freedom of thought and with societal institutions. Well, Pompeo (R-CA) bats for the Republican team after all. Mike Pompeo's Earth-Air Sun Cap-Moon AQ blend identifies him as progressive yet conservative, thoughtful and skeptical, and a dedicated and purposeful idealist with a practical streak. Up front and friendly, yet a private person, Mr. Pompeo wants to reform the world which certainly includes every branch of the US government, and his independent mind and spirit may not be loyal enough to suit Donald Trump whose indiscretions and crimes demand loyalty from his underlings in order to stay covered up and keep the Trump Train chugging onward. Born near a Full Moon, Pompeo's Moon-North Node conjunction and Sun-South Node conjunction across the Cancer-Capricorn axis is the nodal opposite of Trump's Gemini-Sagittarius condition with Sun-NN and Moon-SN. Cosmically this relationship involving the Nodal axis of both men can either aid or separate them as their relationship proceeds with Pompeo's personality blend of professionalism suggesting that he does not suffer fools gladly. So how easy can it be for Pompeo to work with Trump?!? And it's interesting that Mike Pompeo's Prenatal Solar Eclipse manifested on July 20, 1963 @27Cancer (opposing US natal Pluto) in the 1 North Saros Series which repeated as The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 with its themes of 'information is distorted and possibly false' (Brady). Yet perhaps I fret over the Pompeo-Trump relationship for nothing since Pompeo's natal Sun-Jupiter square doesn't mind bending the truth to achieve results and may bite off more than he can chew--both tendencies of Donald Trump. Today transit Venus, planet of diplomacy as in the State Department, squares Pompeo's natal Sun (8Cap28 in corporate 8th house) so modest reactions are advised if/when offered a higher position of authority, plus, some 'agree to disagree' necessities will be in order as Pompeo attempts to serve Donald Trump from within the all-important Department of State.

Carelli's Degrees: the natal Mercury of Donald Trump

Thu, 08 Mar 2018 17:16:00 +0000

If you're familiar with Adriano Carelli's book The 360 Degrees of the Zodiac (AFA, 3rd printing 1982) you know that the rounding-up method used for Sabian Symbols is not used for Carelli's Degrees. Therefore, the natal 11th house Mercury of Donald Trump (8Can51) is read in Carelli's explanation of '8Cancer' for which he gives no word picture (symbol). Not all his degrees have such symbols but each degree has an explanation, empirically collected, and often with historical references. Now as you know, Mr. Trump's natal Mercury, planet of thinking processes, communications, commerce, deals, trades, and trickery has only a square to his natal Neptune (5Libra, 2nd house of Money and Values) to depend on for moderation. As you also know, this square spotlights his pathological lying, incorrect assumptions, lack of discretion, and outright schemes to win the imaginary war he's internally fighting with the entire world. In my experience, Neptune doesn't tend to 'moderate' anything but does tend to dissolve and suggest overblown ideas and plans while undermining thinking processes and judgment, veils motives and actions, confuses issues, and attempts to deflect from the less savory characteristics a person holds. Of course, Neptunian inspiration isn't always negative but it isn't always positive either--motive always counts, such as getting oneself out of a jam via deceit and equivocation. So let's turn to Adriano Carelli for insights into '8Cancer', the degree of Trump's natal Mercury and if any of the following sounds familiar then we're on the same page! I shall hereby quote in its entirety this Mercurial picture of the very Mercurial wheeler-dealer, Donald Trump, Uranian extraordinaire who brings chaos to whatever he touches while his Libran Jupiter shouts, it's not fair!: "A lazy and sensuous being, much too prone to self-indulgence and wantonness. But he has horse sense and a mind cut out for life's rough-and-tumble existence and is not totally destitute of that cunning that often replaces intelligence in fools. A general tendency toward aberration and to illicit ties (in a woman this will mean easy seduction) will expose the native to the danger of adulteries or otherwise guilty intercourse threatening his married happiness and renown. As he knows no measure, not even in speaking or writing, he will be led to more or less serious indiscretions which, according to other pointers in the horoscope, may range from petty, mischievous gossip to veritable libel, from the dutiful might be sued for slander, not for abuse (unless other components give him courage enough to voice his opinions openly) as he is too cowardly to face people directly, and delights in publishing spicy gossip about them. He usually likes to entrench himself behind the responsibility of others and to hide the hand that flings the stone. A gazetteer more than a journalist, he might have success with the chronique scandaleux and, if the horoscope helps, he may lead a paper with success; otherwise he will stoop to publishing infamous defamation and anonymous letters. EXAMPLES: James I, king of England (Sun's degree); Benito Mussolini (degree of the point of *equidistance)." * 'point of equidistance' is the Sun-Moon midpoint. jc Now I have typed here and there since the 'election' of Donald Trump that I wish him to do well in the role because as POTUS goes, so goes our America. However, the above Mercurial explanation of Mr. Trump more than suggests that he is not in possession of the temperament or the higher ethics that the role of US president requires for best success. And since there are those who 'select' world leaders, as a Child of the Revolution I can only surmise that the undermining--no, the collapse--of America and the 'old order' of 1776 is their ultim[...]

David Stockman Warns of Unimaginable Economic Catastrophe - clip

Wed, 07 Mar 2018 17:56:00 +0000

Citing the October 1, 2018 beginning of Fiscal Year 2019, former congressman David Stockman speaks with Thom Hartmann concerning the current financial madness of Donald Trump (steel-aluminum tariffs, GOP tax cut for the wealthy, etc) on March 6, 2018:

allowfullscreen="" frameborder="0" height="315" src="" width="560">


Does Astrology Agree a Collapse Is Due?

Disturbingly, the Solar Eclipse Saros Series under which Fiscal Year 2019 falls is the 2 New North which perfects on August 11, 2018 @19Leo, a sensitized degree. This is what I've previously termed The Tower Eclipse for its themes of 'collapse of an existing structure, plans, lifestyles; after the dust settles, rebuilding begins' (Brady's Predictive Astrology).

The August 11th horoscope, set for Washington DC, shows Mr. Trump's natal Pluto rising (10Leo02) and transit Pluto in Capricorn unaspected which to me represents the foreign bankers (ex: House of Rothschild) who secretly control the US financial system via the complicit Federal Reserve Banking System of America--the central bank we never wanted. Now this is my opinion and is not a topic in the above interview. If you view the eclipse chart you'll find shocking Uranus, planet of disruption and separation, at Midheaven, the Goal Point of any horoscope.

When Dark Shadows Fall

In addition, Trump's natal Pluto in 12th house of Back Room Deals, Politics, Large Institutions, Self-Undoing, and Karma, is unaspected in his chart, a condition Bil Tierney calls "one-pointed" and "overshadowed by shadows". Doing business with domestic and global criminal underworld figures can do such overshadowing. However, Trump's primal Pluto is apex planet of a difficult midpoint picture--here's an interpretation of this picture's potentials written by Michael Munkasey for it is part of Trump's psyche:

'Mars-Saturn = Pluto: extreme measures taken to apply brute force or might directly to those who are no longer able to defend themselves adequately; respected activities are corrupted; intensely applying might or energy toward goals' (to collapse the US economy as directed by the very plutonian Mr. Putin and other foreign leaders determined to establish a 'new' global economic order once the old order is collapsed--and now receiving more support than ever from the GOP and complicit corporate Dems--jc).

And in light of this week's Trump tantrums and meltdowns, here's a related post Mars Transits to Trump Natal Chart.


A Natal Chart for Sam Nunberg June 21, 1981

Wed, 07 Mar 2018 01:00:00 +0000

March 6, 2018: political consultant Sam Nunberg has been all over the news this week related to the Mueller investigation--here's an update on Sam Nunberg, former (twice fired!) employee of Donald Trump and accolyte of political operative Roger Stone who considers politics to be "performance art" (which is what I've been blogging for over 12 years now--political theater, dahlink!). Mr. Nunberg now says he will indeed respond to the Mueller subpoena after asserting yesterday that he would not because it might imperil his mentor, Roger Stone.

Without a birth time or a confirmed location of his birth (I suspect New York City so I'm using it to set the chart), here's a speculative 'noon' horoscope for Sam (Samuel?) Nunberg, member of the New York state bar, and man born with thinking-communicating Mercury Rx melded to his natal Sun (self-absorb much?) which is probably @00Cancer+ but if born prior to 7:54 am edt, may be in the last degree of chatty Gemini; Moon is in Aquarius (10:13--23:04). Either way, Sun and Mercury conjoin one of the Cardinal World Points of Manifestation so it seems that world fame is one of Mr. Nunberg's objectives in life.

Please enlarge the image if you wish to read the few notes penned on:


Blog Note: the idea to post a version of the Nunberg natal chart was inspired by Leo Moon.


March 6, 2018: Mercury to Aries Point w Stars

Mon, 05 Mar 2018 21:15:00 +0000

Horoscope Image: March 6, 2018 2:34:25 am est White House Washington DC; Cardinal Water strong; Hour of Mercury in 'its' 3rd house of Communications; chart-ruler Saturn @7Cap41 and rising with Facies (ruthlessness or the victim); Mercury and Venus conjunct Scheat (misfortune; intellect), Sun conjunct Achernar (risk of rapid endings; crisis) and remains near masking, disguising, deceptive Neptune, North Node @14Leo31 8th house points toward Dubhe (loving but forceful); Mars conjoins the prophetic Hopi 'Blue Star' Ras Alhague and the Moon-SN conjunction of Donald Trump; and the Scorpio Jupiter in 11th house inflates starry Agena (the pain of learning). In 2nd house you see the current Solar Eclipse of February 15, 2018 (27AQ07) in the 1 South Saros Series (flooded with ideas or options--Brady) where karmic progress can be made, and the last lunation, the Syzygy Moon @11Vir22 in the corporate 8th house as is the North Node of future direction. As you see in the horoscope, the planets form a BOWL shape with the fluctuating Moon @9Sco51 in 10th house leading the planetary throng; quirky radical Uranus @26Ari09 and asteroid of grieving mothers, Niobe, conjoin the Ending or Foundation Point of the chart, the IC. Pluto at a critical degree (20Capricorn) and rising behind Saturn, both karmic planets set to meet in Great Conjunction on January 12, 2020 @23Capricorn. Three midpoint pictures are penned on the chart; any, all, or none may apply: Lower left, Mars-Saturn = ASC; upper right, Mars-Pluto = Saturn; mid-right, Mars-MC = Jupiter. Now planet Mars rules the Cardinal Aries Point, as you know, and planet Mars @23Sag23 rises in 12th house of Politics, Karma, and Self-Undoing after conjoining Mr. Trump's Moon and South Node conjunction and describing the anger, quarrels, and separations recently surrounding Mr. Trump. Also of note is Chiron to Aries Point which first becomes exact April 17, 2018, again September 25, 2018, and third/last on February 18, 2019. A Changeable Moon Fighting for Survival in Scorpio The double Water blend of Sun Pisces-Moon Scorpio suggests a period of emotional and psychological insights and intuition, deep and complex feelings, and mental clarity for those who can transcend their personal prejudices; courage in the face of adversity may be in evidence along with the tendency to manipulate others in order to increase one's power and advantage while using scathing criticism and a fighting spirit in the process. Sun Pisces-Moon Scorpio blend is shared natally by author John Steinbeck who perhaps puts the day's energies into context saying, "It is the nature of a man as he grows protest against change, particularly change for the better." '30Pisces' = "The Great Stone Face"..."DISCERNMENT...destiny is character." '1Aries' = "A Woman Rises Out of the Water, a Seal Is Embracing Her"..."REALIZATION...the self cannot separate itself from its own private obsessions."

March 2018 Deadly Storms: "A Tree Felled and Sawed"

Sat, 03 Mar 2018 19:36:00 +0000

The current Solar Eclipse series perfected on February 15, 2018 at the rounded-up degree of 28Aquarius, the degree of the late afternoon Moon of July 4, 1776, the US public's We The People degree. The Sabian Symbol for '28AQ" is particularly tragic during current storms and it's not only in America that falling trees are killing people but on Portugal's island of Madeira showing that my calling this 1 South eclipse the 'We The People Eclipse' is not a wide enough reference to much deeper meanings. Yet my condolences are wide enough to spread across the globe.

For as secretly feared, and knowing that damage, loss, disruption, and/or sudden events may accompany any eclipse, the February 2018 Solar Eclipse themes of 1 South are all too cryptic - flooded with ideas and options (Brady) with the unfortunate Neptunian keyword being 'flooded'.

Mar 2, 2018: Mars Transits to Trump natal planets

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 18:27:00 +0000

March 2, 2018: The orbit of planet Mars is approximately two years in length so it's a regular occurrence for us all that the planet of anger, quarrels, and testosterone riles up, triggers, or activates the potentials of a person's natal Moon (emotions, feelings, moods) 'like clockwork' and Mr. Trump is no less subject to such a transit. Yet perhaps Mars transits affect him more than many since little Donnie was born with Mars rising in proud Leo and, as we know, he is an aggressive fellow on multiple levels who 'hits back' whenever provoked or criticized--like the street-fighter and thuggish bully that he is. Now I won't burden you in this post by listing the week's events which must certainly have angered Mr. Trump for anyone who checks media at all has heard or read all about them. Separation from positions in the White House has continued to occur, resignations announced, and the tiresome phrase 'rats deserting a sinking ship' comes too easily to mind. The entire Trump episode must give Mr. Putin moments of extreme glee as his plan to undermine the great America is proceeding well under Mr. Trump's unstable steerage. Chinese leaders must be getting a bunch of ha-has out of America's weakening as well. (Round up Trump's natal Moon degree to '22Sag' and we have, as previously noted here many times, "A Chinese Laundry"--and the whiff of money-laundering is difficult to miss!) On June 14, 1946 at 10:54 am est in Queens, NY, Donald Trump entered the earthly flux with the Moon conjoining Luna's own South Node, a separative point with Saturnian implications and suggesting difficulties with Mother and women. 20--22 Sagittarius was the place then and is the spot where transit Mars now ruffles and aggravates so we know that separations (SN) and anger, even rage (Mars), are on Trump's menu this week. Tantrums and 'energetic' displays of emotion are the calling card of Mars to natal Moon along with hurt feelings which are covered up by displays of anger. Release of tension may be a result of his hissy fits--and then there's always ill-advised tweeting for expressing his royal displeasure. In the real world, the chaotic busy-ness of the week's events, as some pundits have noted, demonstrates the pace of life speeding up just as this transit by Mars often brings. Plus, Mars in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius denotes the need to convince others of one's ideas along with the tendency to take rash actions (Ebertin) and Trump's Sag Moon identifies his changing moods, inconstancy, and a tendency for pessimism to alternate with optimism. Mars and South Node contacts suggest, as noted, separations especially from males so perhaps the reputed resignation of General McMaster is closer than the public imagines (by the end of this month?) although another Trump associate of the male persuasion, Josh Raffel, resigned this week around the time of the Hope Hicks resignation. (Edit 8:40 pm: and I almost forgot Jeff Sessions who teeters in his post but who has 'dug in' almost daring Trump to fire him. However, there are people will do Anything to achieve success, and the cost of the struggle is of no concern because it's passed on to others' shoulders, the culprit never made to answer for his acts--or so he thinks. That is Until We The People stand up for our heritage of an American Spirit that is not within Donald Trump or his co-conspirators for theirs is a false patriotism, their mummers of good will ring hollow.# If you actually need to, see a list of White House resignations and firings compiled by USAToday. Now during the last week of February, transit Mars opposed Trump's natal Uranus (his guiding planet of chao[...]

Astro-Notes: White House Chief of Staff John Kelly

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 04:31:00 +0000

By Department of Homeland Security ( [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons Now acting as Donald Trump's White House Chief of Staff, former Marine commander and Homeland Security Director John Kelly was born on May 11, 1950 in Boston, Massachusetts. Brief astro-notes follow but first you may wish to check out 10 Things You Didn't Know about General John Kelly. Also recommended is TwilightStarSong's insightful post on John Kelly where you can view a speculative noon version of his natal horoscope which shows his Moon @21Pisces and Sun and Mercury Rx in Venus-ruled Taurus. As you know, Pisces is sometimes a 'military general' sign but of course even then there may be something of a soft underbelly (see his limpid blue Pisces eyes). Plus, note that Kelly's natal Jupiter, The General, is in Pisces as well. And if you're familiar with the natal horoscope of Donald Trump you can see that Kelly's Sun-Mercury Rx conjunction in Taurus sits upon Trump's natal Midheaven (24Taurus), Kelly's natal Chiron conjoins Trump's problematic SN-Moon conjunction in Sagittarius--and if Kelly's natal Moon really is around 21 degrees of Pisces, it conjoins his natal asteroid of corporatism, Cupido. That's one of the main objectives of the US military, you know--to protect corporate interests. Racketeering! The Personality of General John Kelly 'Easy-going yet determined' is a good way to describe his personality which can be seen by his practical Earth-Water Sun Taurus-Moon Pisces blend since the Moon remained in Pisces (15:43--27:50) for the entire 24-hour period. This blend mixes the realism of earthy Taurus with the creative imagination of Pisces as Bull and Fish combine to form a 'nature mystic'. Resourceful and poetic, Kelly is a practical dreamer who is responsive yet reserved, a capitalist and socialist in one. A private person, he tends to withdraw for dreaming, brooding, and recharging emotionally. At heart he is an idealist who may seem to have taken a vow of silence! Yet he's a hands-on person with many practical skills, solid, dependable, and a hard worker (which is good since Trump isn't). John Kelly is a quiet man with a capacity for understanding others though naivety may be a problem at times along with moodiness and a dash of self-pity. He can also be resistant to logic when it doesn't suit him! The Sun Taurus-Moon Pisces personality blend is shared by some illustrious folk such as Leonardo da Vinci, Ann Boleyn, Audrey Hepburn, Samuel Morse of Morse Code fame, naturalist-conservationist John Muir, and (more to the point) soldier-politician the Duke of Wellington. As for his Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse Saros Series, that would be the 6 North which manifested prior to his birth on March 18, 1950 @27Pis27. Its themes have to do with one's relationship to authority figures and the need to take responsibility and control and accept commitments that occur due to another person's unreliability. Sound about right? Last 6 North: 2004 @30Aries; next 6N: 2022 @10Taurus which conjoins the speculative noon Midheaven of his natal horoscope. Also note that the noon Ascendant will be conjoined by the upcoming August 11, 2018 Solar Eclipse ('The Tower') @19Leo which may have no influence upon him in particular unless we count his noon chart as significant for career matters. Or, unless John Kelly was born at or very near noon. For more details see: Sun Sign-Moon Sign, by Charles and Suzi Harvey, and Predictive Astrology by Bernadette Brady. [...]

Manafort Trial Reset for September 17, 2018

Thu, 01 Mar 2018 18:45:00 +0000

By DonkeyHotey (Paul Manafort - Caricature) [CC BY 2.0 (], via Wikimedia Commons Of Kingpins and Squealers by Jude Cowell March 1, 2018: since yesterday, word is that the Paul Manafort trial has been reset for Monday September 17, 2018. It had been scheduled for March 15, 2018, a date of cosmic occurrences such as a seed-planting New Moon @24Taurus36--conjunct the natal Midheaven of Donald Trump, and the day transit Uranus enters Taurus, sign of The Bull, though the disruptive planet of chaos will back into Aries once again in November 2018 and re-enter Venus-ruled Taurus for good in March 2019. A glance at the general transits of September 17, 2018 show an excitable if not explosive and dangerous Mars-Uranus square, tr Mercury (planet of testimonies, deals, and such) @21Virgo and conjoining fixed star Denebola (to go against society; out of the mainstream), and a sobering or depressive Moon-Saturn conjunction in very early Capricorn, sign of government, law, and business. And since world events tend to occur when Cardinal World Points of Manifestation (00Ari/Lib and 00Can/Cap) are triggered, we find wounded-wounding Chiron at Aries Point on that day and conjunct difficult fixed star Scheat with its potentials for malevolence of sublime scope, imprisonment, extreme misfortune, murder, suicide (A. Louis, N. DeVore, Ebertin-Hoffmann). Additionally, transit Jupiter, planet of expansion and increase, sits upon the disturbing degree of 19Scorpio (traditionally an 'evil degree'--Devore, who also says it's a crucial point of Ego vs Supreme Will) so Jupiter may not show the protection usually afforded especially since two malevolent stars inhabit the degree: North Scale with potentials for hasty words that cause problems, tragedy, and violence, and Serpentis (aka, Unukalhai) with vibes of tragedy, misfortune, immorality, accidents, and/or danger of poison. Wonder of Mr. Manafort should use the services of a royal taste tester?! Also of interest is the fact that moving Mr. Manafort's trial to September places the proceedings into the more difficult August 11, 2018 Solar Eclipse Saros Series, the 2 New North, with themes of The Tower that collapses (Brady). This includes plans and lifestyles collapsing and of course, Trump Tower comes easily to mind and although a complete financial and political collapse may be indicated for America (2 New North is the PE of Midterm Elections 2018--and as a POTUS goes, so goes America). However, it's Donald Trump who is closely linked to towers, even imprinting his name on them. Now this cosmic condition may very possibly bode ill for the Trump White House and for all he has gained so far in life because he regularly tends to ignore the karmic caution of his rising star, royal Regulus: success if revenge is avoided. And if it isn't avoided, at some point all that has been gained will be taken away. Yet if total collapse is on the kingpin-in-chief's karmic agenda, would his Libran Jupiter's motto of "it's not fair!" agree that even a self-exalted, ego-based Mr. Trump must eventually reap what he's sown? Related Posts include: A Noon Horoscope for Robert Mueller; Paul Manafort: the Ram and the Bull; and Chiron to Aries Point (3x--and please note that on the tri-wheel horoscopes I mislabeled the first conjunction as '2019' though the horoscope shown (April 2018) is correct.

On the Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse and Aspects of Roger Stone

Wed, 28 Feb 2018 22:14:00 +0000

Roger Stone, political consultant, opposition researcher, long time lobbyist, and old pal of Donald Trump, was born on August 27, 1952 in Norwalk, Connecticut. No birth hour is known so below we'll briefly consider a noon chart for this WikiLeaks-Putin-Trump-Manafort associate. And on what isn't really a side note of current events, in 2008 I posted this: Spitzer's Nemesis + Blackmailing for War. Not a side note because the 'nemesis' of Eliott Spitzer is identified as Roger Stone. And from September 2017 comes Method to the "Madness": Dissecting Roger Stone's Statement to Congress, by a former Fed prosecutor which includes Stone's statement to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence given on September 25, 2017. And perhaps you remember that Stone was involved in stopping the Florida recount in 2008 which allowed the Bush-Cheney regime's backdoor entry into the White House (with the help of a bogus SCOTUS decision). In June 2008, The New Yorker published an article on Mr. Stone The Dirty Trickster. Roger Stone had also worked with the infamous political operative Lee Atwater and with Richard "I am Not a Crook" Nixon, a president who was called in his day Tricky Dick and for good reason. Such a gaggle of cheaters and knaves! There's even a Trump-esque documentary released in May 2017 titled Get Me Roger Stone for Stone pretty much invented the political career of Donald Trump and perhaps animated the Frankenstein monster itself. So for a view of Roger Stone's noon horoscope and an analysis of its BOWL shape and other planetary factors you'll want to check out some good [...]

Horoscope and Astro-Notes on Hope Hicks

Tue, 27 Feb 2018 18:16:00 +0000

Update Feb 27, 2018 6:00 pm est: As expected, Miss Hicks refused to spill the beans on Trump today, thank you very much. News Update Feb 28, 2018 5:30 pm est: Hope Hicks is resigning as WH Director of Communications after admitting yesterday on Capitol Hill that she tells "white lies" for the White House (Trump). Original post begins here: A Brief Astrological Overview of Hope Hicks by Jude Cowell Tuesday February 27, 2018: This morning White House Director of Communications and longest serving political aide to Donald Trump Hope Hicks is to appear before the House Intelligence Committee concerning alleged Trump campaign involvement in Russian meddling in the November 2016 election. Her appearance was postponed from last month due to the kerfuffle over Steve Bannon's testimony and Mr. Trump should note that the 'attorney-client privilege' hedge is not applicable in the case of Hope Hicks though whether or not she'll actually answer any questions remains to be seen. The Wikipedia page for Hope Charlotte Hicks provides a few basic details of her life of 29 years but let's take a brief peek at her natal planets and PE. Sans an accurate birth time we'll look at 'noon' on October 21, 1988 Greenwich, Connecticut but with consideration for the 24-hour range of degrees for her Moon and Sun. Naturally her age implies that a Saturn Return may be in play as she or others are held accountable for past actions but we'll see how close the timing is to today's Capitol Hill appearance. Horoscope: Hope Charlotte Hicks October 21, 1988 'noon' edt Greenwich, CT: As you see, 1988's weighty trio of planets Uranus-Saturn-Neptune figure strongly in the psyche of Hope Hicks where transit Saturn, the authority and The Establishment, now plods (Saturn today = 7Cap12). On the chart (lower left) are penned the dates that tr Saturn hits natal Neptune: March 6, 2018, May 31, 2018, and November 29, 2018. As you know, this is the 'dream come true' OR 'the grim face of reality' transit and considering her involvement with the Trump Organization and today's Capitol Hill visit, I'd say it's more the latter than the former for Miss Hicks. And note that monetary matters are suggested by this transit. So I would say that 2018 is a Saturn-to-Neptune year for Hope Hicks. However, the amount of Saturnian honesty, realism, and authenticity may negligible from today's House Intell Committee testimony, because for one thing, Miss Hicks was born with a fantasy-prone Mercury-Neptune square as was the truth-challenged Donald Trump! Another of her tendencies toward fact-distortion is revealed by a Neptune-Chiron opposition (0S33) which suggests one for whom the only reality is subjective for she believes that objectivity is an illusion--'there are no facts' (r. Nolle). Moon-NN, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter Rx, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto The Moon-North Node connection relates to her role in public relations and communications, and her unaspected Venus (impaired perspectives, lack of evaluation before taking action; a social 'wallflower'??) is in friendly mutual reception with communicating Mercury in the Venus-ruled sign of lovely Libra. As you see, her Syzygy Moon (last lunation prior to birth) @17Lib48 conjoins Mr. Trump's natal Jupiter Station Direct. Financial security is a driving force for Hicks (as for Trump) but hopefully, today's House committee members won't be blinded by the obvious beauty of this lovely Libra! Yet trouble in love matters is also shown in her chart (which won't be discussed here except to note that her[...]

DC Horoscopes: Jupiter and Saturn Stations 2018

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 21:17:00 +0000

March and April 2018 bring two major changes of direction for the societal pair of planets, Jupiter and Saturn. Here you see both horoscopes set for the White House and the exact moments of both shifts. Sextile by sign (Scorpio/Capricorn), the two transiting planets of expansion vs restriction act as the Flywheel of the Universe keeping our solar system's planets from veering off-course and wandering away. The Great Mathematician set it up for us! And I think of this every time I pray, Thy rod (Saturn) and Thy staff (Jupiter) they comfort me. And so our Creator does, as the children's song says, have the whole world in His hands. Who Plays Santa This Time? Heavenly principles are preferred by yours truly yet here on SO'W we have Washington DC Politics to consider, ugly and hate-filled as the practice may be. However, let's not think about which political party is represented by generous Jupiter and which by austere Saturn these days for the parties do like to change sides whenever it behooves them, morphing one into the other depending on the issue at the time--and on which party controls the White House, House, Senate, etc--the balance of power, a Jupiter-Saturn concept. Checks and balances, a favored stance in America as long as it lasts, also falls under the auspices of the Jupiter-Saturn combination of energies thanks to the increasing/limiting tension between them. So the two horoscopes you see here are set for Jupiter's Rx Station on March 8, 2018 11:45:18 pm est (lower left) with stationary Jupiter rising as he leads the rest of the planets in a BOWL shape. Note that Jupiter is in the same leadership position in the April 17th chart with BOWLs denoting the empty houses as realms of experience shut off from him, self-serving as he may be. Here Jupiter's achievements cannot be realized from Gemini through Libra concerns which of course include Mr. Trump's Uranus-NN-Sun in Gemini and Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter in Libra; his Venus-Saturn conjunction in Cancer chimes in when needed and loyalty is the thing. However, transit Jupiter, planet of protection, conjoins Mr. Trump's natal IC but will not cross his IC into 4th house just yet. Transit Jupiter turns Direct @13Sco20 on or about July 10th and will enter Trump's natal 4th house in October 2018. Meanwhile, transit Saturn has a few plans of his own and, as you see, Stations Rx on April 17, 2018 9:46:33 pm edt @9Cap08:55 and does not turn Direct until September 6th or so, depending on your location; this Direct Station occurs @2Cap32 and restrictively opposes America's Cancer Trio of Venus, Jupiter, and Sun. Anyone who keeps up with old man Saturn knows the karmic difficulties of these three transits in opposition to US leadership. Of course, once tr Saturn enters the 24-29-degree range of Capricorn, the surveillance-mad US natal Mercury-Pluto opposition is due for karmic accountability as well and may suffer significant retribution of some kind for Saturn will oppose our national Mercury (of July 4, 1776) and conjoin US natal Pluto (27Cap33). Using an orb of 5 degrees applying, Saturn's opposition to little Mercury begins in late March 2019 with the conjunction to natal Pluto a major issue as early as January 2020--which is also the period of the Great Conjunction of Saturn and Pluto. Obviously, trouble lies ahead! And one more note: the MC of the April 17, 2018 horoscope shows a Midheaven (Goal Point) of 3Vir50 and the rounded-up Sabian Symbol for '4Virgo' is penned there..."A Colored Child Playing with Whi[...]

The Powerful Midpoint Pictures of Donald Trump

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 06:19:00 +0000

The following midpoint picture interpretations are gleaned from the natal chart of Donald John Trump born June 14, 1946 10:54 am edt Queens, New York USA and are quoted here from The Combination of Stellar Influences by Reinhold Ebertin (lest someone fuss that I made them up!) Well yes, I'm a messy artist but perhaps you can somehow read my scribbles of Mr. Trump's natal planetary pictures and their potential expressions (any, all, or none may apply and all are subject to activation by various cosmic means, a lifelong condition here on Planet Earth): If possible, read them all together (unless you know them already) for they paint quite a picture of this flawed individual whose personal flaws and foibles are now our own to some extent--even for those who 'resist' his White House tenure. Uncomfortably, we are all under the sway of Trump's 10th house Uranus @17Gemini, his oriental or 'guiding planet', which inspires in him a wide variety of shocking behaviors and erratic ideas and intensifies his odd or unusual communications style (Gemini), wouldn't you say? And though people get excited when seeing him in person (Sun-Uranus = NN of public contact), chaos attends sky god Uranus, planet of lightening, electricity, novelty, disruption, separation, and--perhaps more to the political point--radical reforms. As you know, the totally skeptical Mr. Trump (Mercury-Pluto = Saturn) is a quixotic, quirky reformer (Uranus in Gemini) who becomes overwhelmed with extreme emotions (Moon-Pluto = Chiron, the wound and/or blind spot) and has a tendency to be easily seduced and to speculate wildly (Jupiter-Neptune = Chiron--in his 2nd house of Money and Values). Plus, hypocrisy is often a part of any bubbly, frothy Jupiter-Neptune action and with Chiron in the midst of it he may be completely unaware of his hypocrisy although it's excessively obvious to most observers (and victims!) And since I have often here and there complained of Mr. Trump's indiscreet, fantasy-prone, dishonest Mercury-Neptune square of the sneaky mind (A. Oken), I give it small mention since we're talking mostly midpoint pictures yet it is a major feature of his public persona and habitual behavior in which he prevaricates without having to think about it. And so we see in current events and in these pictures that Gemini messenger Mr. Trump, who rules spontaneously by whimsy and notion, has a mission to fulfill and announcements to make (Mercury conjunct Mirzam, The Announcer who precedes Sirius, the Dog Star). His oppressive family conditions early in life (and probably even now with the Mueller investigation) gives a tendency toward emotional depression (Saturn-Neptune = ASC) which he endeavors to hide from himself in the many ways we've observed. A primary way is to go overboard in one's love life and to talk of such private matters too often and too familiarly. Then Venus-Neptune = ASC provides him with potentials for holding peculiar attitudes about love and women, impressionability, a lack of good taste (a gilded penthouse? ridiculous!), and....surprise--disappointment in love. This potential may sometimes aggravate the discontent seen in his Venus-Saturn conjunction in 11th house of Associations. As we've noticed, loyalty (Saturn) in relationships (Venus) is a must for Mr. Trump no matter how wrong or offensive he is on any topic or issue, or how disloyal he himself is. And with such an attitude toward others he's bound to face disappointment in relationships, including [...]

We Don't Work for the Government - the Government Works for Us

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 18:49:00 +0000

Today SO'W is pleased to present another post written by Kevin Estes who provides us with a millennial perspective on the current condition of the US government. We Don't Work For The Government, The Government Works For Us by Kevin Estes Years ago, the US Government actually performed its duty and worked for the people. Franklin D. Roosevelt is the reason for programs like Social Security. Dwight Eisenhower is the reason for our highway system, allowing us to travel longer distances in a shorter amount of time. Lyndon Johnson is the reason for Medicare, Medicaid, and the Food Stamp Program. Even Richard Nixon, who is most known for the Watergate Scandal, is the reason for Supplemental Security Income, better known as SSI, and for the EPA. Yes, upon a time Government actually worked for the people (the Democrats were becoming the left wing party, while the Republican party was more moderate). When did it go wrong? In 1981, Ronald Reagan signed the Economic Recovery Tax Act of 1981, lowering the top income tax rate from 70% to 50%, and then in 1986 signed the Tax Reform Act Of 1986, which lowered the top rate from 50% to 38.5%. After these tax cuts, the economy entered a recession in the late 80s and didn't recover until the time Clinton entered office. Reagan is also known for the Iran Contra Scandal, which involved the sale of weapons to Iran. Bill Clinton, despite presiding over a strong economy throughout this two terms in office, signed the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act in 1996, which significantly reduced welfare benefits. He also repealed the Glass Steagall Act in 1999, which lifted strong regulations on the banks that were implemented by Franklin D. Roosevelt. The repeal played a big role in the Great Recession that took place in 2008-2011. George W. Bush is well known for his two sets of tax cuts in 2001 and 2003, both of which heavily benefited the wealthy, and also played a major role in the 2008 recession, as he refused to raise taxes while two wars were going on. He also signed the Patriot Act into law, suspiciously shortly after 9/11, rightly making people wonder if it was a planned attack for the purpose of suppressing freedom of speech by labeling violators as "terrorists". Barack Obama is well known for Obamacare, which is a federal mandate to purchase health care, and likely a ponzi scheme to make health care providers richer, as premiums increased under this law. And Donald Trump recently signed a huge tax cut for the wealthy into law, while taxes will go up for everybody else in 2025. All of this, in the name of making their donors richer at the expense of the "little people". How To Fix This Simple. Get the money out of politics! If it was made illegal for corporations to bribe politicians, politicians wouldn't feel the need to make the rich richer, and have more freedom to govern according to the political indicators in their astrology charts. In Obama and Clinton's charts, the left wing economic and cultural indicators are very strong, so it's very likely that if they didn't have to be owned by multi million dollar corporations in order to get elected, they would have run the country in a much more progressive manner, similar to the likes of Roosevelt and Lyndon Johnson. As long as big money is involved in politics, the rich will continue to get richer at the expense of the poor. Pluto in Capricorn Pluto has been in the sign of Capricorn since 2008, and will[...]
