America’s Pluto transit and a growing love of Putin

US Sibley chart astrologyI just watched an interesting piece by Vox on the growing rise of admiration of Vladmir Putin by Republicans in the US.  (Youtube video below).  In 2014 70% of Republicans disapproved of Vladmir Putin.  By July 2016, Putin’s favorability ratings had spiked so that only 10% of Republicans disapproved of him.

Putin is known as a strongman – he has allegedly ordered the murders of journalists and forcibly invaded other countries just because he could.  Republicans, being from Mars where Democrats are from Venus, respect this kind of power in a way that Democrat-leaning types fear it.

Nations have astrological charts just as individuals do, and in 2014 transiting Pluto began a pass over the US Sun (geeky astrological detail: and the US progressed Jupiter which is beginning to align with the Sun in the natal chart).  Pluto is concerned with issues of power and empowerment, so it’s not surprising that this became more of an issue and something that Americans were grappling with.

This Pluto cycle has now subsided so it will be interesting to see how Americans view the new President’s love of this kind of display of power and whether they will continue to  admire it.

Apparently I did predict the election outcome

election predictionA reader reminded me about what I wrote about Donald Trump back in June:

Astrologers often cast a chart for the moment that the Sun returns to its place at birth in order to get a picture of an individual’s coming year.  Trump’s Solar Return chart shows an extremely fortunate conjunction of the Sun and Venus, with Venus bestowing blessings of attraction and success.  Uranus, the disrupter, sits at the Midheaven of the Return chart, threatening to create havoc and suggesting that some sort of reversal is still possible [emphasis added].

The upcoming planetary cycles affecting Trump’s chart are overwhelmingly favorable. Jupiter is the planet which open the doors of opportunity and often bestows confidence and good luck, and Trump has a number of Jupiter cycles beginning in August and extending into the election season.

The opportunities presented by Jupiter are sometimes unexpected.  If as some say Trump never really wanted to be President, Jupiter could release him from the race and he could lose.  And because the confidence bestowed by Jupiter can make us complacent, there is always the danger that like the hare who raced against the tortoise, the hare could become overconfident and lose the race that way [this almost happened!].

Some astrologers have attempted to predict failure for the Trump candidacy by pointing out the transit of Saturn, the planet of challenge and frustration, to Trump’s Sun and Moon.  Unfortunately for Trump haters, Saturn doesn’t get involved in the astrological picture until well after the election.

This post generated some unhappy comments from readers necessitating this disclaimer which I added to the post:

Already I have received many emails begging me for more negative information on Trump’s planetary cycles.  Trust me folks, I have looked for it. […]

Hillary Clinton birth time controversy

astrology chart 50513939 – zodiac wheel with red mark for divination

Many astrologers are hard at work trying to predict the outcome of the election.  Over the past year astrologers have come out in favor of both candidates for a variety of reasons.  My personal feeling is that when astrologers attempt to predict the future and fail it gives the noble field of astrology a bad rap, when the fault is not in the astrology but in the fact that the future cannot be accurately predicted.

Anyway.

An accurate astrological reading is dependent upon accurate data.  We can glean a great deal of information just from a birthdate, as I typically do with my profiles on this blog where a time of birth is not available.  But an accurate time of birth sets up the structure of the chart – it shows the rising sign (persona) and the Midheaven (career) and describes the houses in which each planet lives and plots a general plan for our lives.

We have an accurate birth time for Donald Trump because was posted online.  But Hillary Clinton has not produced a birth certificate, not surprising given her four planets in Scorpio and her Scorpionic penchant for secrecy and to keep her cards hidden in the game of politics.

Numerous birth times have been provided for Clinton.  The most commonly used time until recently was 8 pm which would put her ascendant in the late degrees of Gemini, almost in Cancer.  A rounded off birth time such as 8 pm is nearly always somewhat incorrect, usually early, and I always felt that a birth time even 10 minutes later with Cancer on the ascendant was a  better fit.  Cancer rising […]

The US has an illness, and this election is the symptom

An explicit recording of Donald Trump’s misogynistic sexual harassment was just released last night, threatening to torpedo the halfhearted support of Trump’s Republican colleagues while creating very little stir among his passionate supporters.

Portions of this article appeared in earlier posts. The Sagittarius ascendant in the US chart reflects the expansive tendency of the American empire which is probably the single thing that will be its undoing.  Like other empires before it, the expansion of the national identity (Sagittarius ascendant) through ideas like “Manifest Destiny” which inspired pioneers to trek across the undeveloped terrain and do battle with the native peoples and Mexicans and Canadians who were already living on the land. . . .

Since Pluto entered the contracting sign of Capricorn, however, the cracks in the foundation have become more evident. Pluto deals with issues of compulsion and use and misuse of power, and in the US chart Pluto lives in the second house of money.  You can read more about that here, but the hunger for money and resources combined with the relentless urge to continually expand the national identity (Sagittarius rising) is not a good combination for a sound economic policy.

Since 2014 Pluto has been no more than two degrees from an exact opposition (stressful aspect) to the Sun in the US chart.  (Geeky astrological detail: because Saturn squares the US Sun, Pluto is also transiting in square to US Saturn which applies even more pressure.) The candidacy of Donald Trump with his openly expressed xenophobia has opened the door to the dark Plutonic realms of the US citizenry.  His campaign […]

The astrology of the US Presidential election nomination charts

election prediction 2016

Astrologer has kindly been posting the data for the nomination of the two major presidential candidates in the US election on Facebook.  Donald Trump’s nomination took place July 21, 2016 at 10:19 pm in Cleveland Ohio, and Hillary Clinton’s nomination took place July 28, 2016 at 10:47 pm in Philadelphia Pennsylvania.

The use of an astrological chart for an event is called “mundane astrology” and it is not my particular specialty.  Still, it can provide some helpful insight into the energies behind events and help to increase our understanding.  The chart for the nomination and acceptance of the candidacy IS the chart for the candidacy itself.

Trump-nomination

The nomination chart for Donald Trump has the first degree Pisces rising which is not a very strong factor in an election chart.  Pisces is about letting go and surrender, it can be magical in the appropriate setting but can also denote confusion and obuscation.  The Sun, at the last degree of Cancer forms not a trine but an awkward quincunx to the Moon which is another message that the machinery behind the candidacy is not working well, with unresolved conflicts and lack of harmony.  The Aquarius Moon has just made a challenging square to Mars which in Scorpio which it rules is at its most powerful, harnessing the aggressive force to be utilized except that the Moon is “void of course” which is a very weak factor in an event chart and suggests that the candidacy will not gain traction and is likely to flounder.

As we have seen, Trump’s personality is driven by the presence of Mars, the god […]
