Astrology And Politics: Trump's U-Turns

The media - at least MSNBC - has been going on and on about President Trump changing directions on a number of fronts. Most of the changes are in regard to foreign policy issues. He has changed his views and the weigh he behaves with regard to China, Syria, NATO, North Korea, and Russia (debateable). What astrological aspects or transits would explain this?

The Sun (Trump’s ruling planet - rules his Ascendant’s sign) is conjunct transiting Uranus on April 13, 2017 (exact at 10:30 PM PST). The Sun/Uranus combo is transiting his ninth house of foreign affairs. Uranus is the planet of change and the unexpected. The duo (Sun/Uranus) is squaring Trump’s natal Saturn and Venus in his eleventh house. Trump is changing his long-term goals, and his relationships are changing as well (Steve Bannon). It’s unclear as to what the the ramifications to the nation are of these changes, however they are likely serious and many.

Transiting Mars (in Taurus) is conjunct Trump’s MC (the top of his chart - his profession and public reputation). The United States dropped a MOAB bomb in Afghanistan on April 13 in pursuit of ISIS for the first time in history. He has also ordered a navy fleet to head toward North Korea. Trump’s threats could be serious and real.

Update On March 23, 2016 Lunar Eclipse

I got a facebook notification on 3/21/17 that a year earlier I had posted my analysis of the lunar eclipse of March 23, 2016 in early Libra. I posted it as a one year ago today post and then I read it. The Sun is now activating this eclipse. Let's look at a couple of comments I made in that post. A year ago I wrote:

For the US, the motion picture industry, shipping, and healthcare are affected. This eclipse indicates increased pressure on healthcare, workers, hospitals, prisons, and death rates and consequences as a result of the t-square in mutable signs. The eclipse point squares Jupiter and Venus in the US natal chart. This points to trouble within the judiciary as the number of court vacancies continue to rise as a result of the US Senate leadership’s intransigence. It also points to possible problems with financial markets and/or the nation’s budget.

Let’s take a look and break this down. First we have this

For the US, the motion picture industry … are affected.

Carrie Fisher died on December 27, 2017 as the Sun was activating this eclipse by square aspect. Then her mother, Debbie Reynolds, died December 28. Asteroid Ceres and Chiron are conjunct and in the twelfth house of death and loss in the chart for this eclipse. They both are in Neptune ruled Pisces - the sign that rules the motion picture industry.

Healthcare is also mentioned in that paragraph:

The House is scheduled to vote on Trumpcare on March 23, 2017 as the Sun is exactly opposite the eclipse point. If this bill passes, it will certainly “increased pressure on healthcare, workers, hospitals.” Fortunately, it does not look good for passage at this time.

The US judiciary is mentioned:

This points to trouble within the judiciary as the number of court vacancies continue to rise as a result of the US Senate leadership’s intransigence.

The Senate Judiciary Committee is holding hearings for Trump’s nominee for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, this week. Justice Scalia’s seat has been vacant for thirteen months now. President Obama had nominated Merick Garland, however Senate Republicans refused to hold hearings or vote on his nominee.

And then there is this: “It also points to possible problems with financial markets.”

On March 21, 2007, the Dow Jones Industrial Average had its biggest one day loss of the year so far. The NASDAQ and the S & P 500 had fairly large one day losses as well.

February 26, 2017 Solar Eclipse In Pisces

February, 2017 is eclipse season. We’ve already experienced a lunar eclipse in Leo on February 10. Now, we will experience a solar eclipse on February 26, and it occurs at 8 degrees  and 12 minutes Pisces. Eclipses generally affect the masses - events that affect most people in a large area or even worldwide. Since this eclipse occurred in Pisces, this eclipse could affect health issues and organizations that deliver health care and also matters of a spiritual nature and/or the Divine. This eclipse could indicate major events at sea or in and around large bodies of water.

For the US, this eclipse will affect our friends. Neptune is the lord of this eclipse, and nations which we have considered longtime friends and allies will be unsure of and/or confused about our current policies and our continued support. Mars and Uranus are conjunct in the twelfth house of this chart over Washington DC, and surprise and unexpected sneak attacks are not out of the question because this can be a volatile combination. The Mars/Uranus conjunction squares Pluto in the ninth house of foreign nations and could add to the danger. These aspects could also indicate airline disasters or other difficult issues with regard to the airline industry. Jupiter opposes Mars/Uranus and squares Pluto from the sixth house of health and work in this chart (which sets up a t-square in cardinal signs). There will be continued controversy with regard to health issues and what to do with and about the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare). Venus in the twelfth house in this chart indicates that diplomacy and compromise are missing. This placement also indicates major events with regard to the creative arts, Hollywood, and the motion picture industry.

As always, this eclipse will affect you personally if you have planets and/or points conjunct or opposite the eclipse point (only a two degree orb). Those planets or points between 6 and 10 degrees of Virgo or Pisces are included. Eclipses are Uranian in nature in that what happens is unexpected, and you might not even be certain as to what is happening for six months. For a solar eclipse, it takes about a year for the event to completely mature. Whether the eclipse is experienced as positive or negative depends on the planet that is conjoined, it’s place in your chart, the condition that the planet is in, and whether and how you might have prepared for what is happening (i.e. free will). If you’d like to know if you have planets or points that fall into this range, let me know. For most people, it will be experienced simply as a New Moon type event. Those are generally felt as the start of something new or a new beginning.

A number of previous eclipses are activated in February as well, which means that this could be a very active and eventful period of time. We may need to fasten our seatbelts.

February 10, 2017 Lunar Eclipse In Leo

The month of February is eclipse season in 2017. The first eclipse, a lunar eclipse, occurs on February 10, 2017 at 23 degrees Leo . You will be affected by this eclipse if you have planets or points between 21 and 25 degrees of Leo and/or Aquarius. Most folks will simply experience the eclipse as a full Moon. Full Moons usually indicate a climax or coming to fruition of something, and we are normally more emotional during a full Moon. The emphasis is on creative self-expression through innovation, originality, and/or just being different or unique.

The lunar eclipse in Leo will affect the entertainment industry and children worldwide. Also, Leo brings world leaders into view or prominence. Transiting Uranus, Jupiter, and Saturn all form favorable aspects this eclipse point (and, Saturn, Uranus, and the eclipse point form a grand trine in fire signs). So, I would expect positive results from the eclipse. However, there will still be difficulty because transiting Pluto is inconjunct the eclipse point. And, Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto form a t-square in the eclipse chart. Mercury is the lord of the eclipse, so communications issues, negotiations, and agreements are important.

For the US, the eclipse falls in the twelfth house in the eclipse chart over Washington DC. Health related issues will be prominent. The Affordable Care Act could be repealed (resulting in loss) or it could get new life with some needed changes. Congress will face serious challenges to repealing and replacing the law. Mars and Uranus challenge Pluto by square aspect in the chart, so there will be more protests, rebellion, upheaval, and possibly even violence. Chiron on the Descendant indicates that we will be dealing with painful issues related to others - partners and enemies.

This eclipse occurs fairly close to President Trump’s natal Mars. He already has a fairly fiery personality under the best of circumstances. What occurs from this eclipse as well as the August solar eclipse at 29 Leo could produce some very dramatic results.

After all the weekend fun, you might want to check your finances to make sure that your money has not evaporated on Sunday. You’ll be fine, but you’ll need to be careful. Next week: Work on your budget and then speak your mind. Others will listen.  RRRRR

Pisces -- Lay low on Friday. Perhaps you are emotionally involved with spiritual issues or helping someone less fortunate than yourself. Know that your efforts are important even if no one notices currently. Your time is coming.

Continue to lay low on Saturday. Nevertheless, others are beginning to wonder where you are. We won’t tell if you don’t. Wherever you are, we suspect that you have a twinkle in your eye.

The Moon enters your sign today. You know what that means, right? Yes, it’s time to go for whatever would make you jump with joy. Add a little glamour and/or magic. You know exactly what to do. Next week: Having a ball; pay bills by midweek.   RRR
