Astrology of the 2020 Election

leave a comment »

Having just published a post on Stars Over Washington concerning
2020 Election Day (horoscope/s shown) here are a few astro-notes on Election Day 2020’s Sun Scorpio-Moon Gemini blend of energies with the day’s Moon ranging from 9Gem27 to 21Gem29 and Sun, as usual, in Scorpio. Note that a Gemini Moon suggests a changeable, unstable, or of-two-minds public mood of We The People.

This Water-Air blend is an ethereal mix of restlessness and volatility, and contains a sense of ‘splitness and division’. There’s a ‘quest for understanding’ though given how truth has fared in America of late under the-prevaricator-in-chief, this may indicate that the voting public’s need for facts will be, as is common, a wild goose chase. Emotional security is longed for along with the physical kind but this may be inconvenient for (cheating) leaders who use the ‘success at any cost’ and ‘ends justify means’ models of behavior. They pretend that cheating is winning! Continuing such pretense must take a psychic toll on their emotions though lack of a conscience or its neglect makes everything possible.

Anyway, I think the ‘Images for Integration’ for the Sun Scorpio-Moon Gemini combination on Election Day 2020 are revealing as given by Charles and Suzi Harvey in their book, Sun Sign-Moon Sign–see what you think while noting the Russian reference:

“Trivial Pursuits goes macabre…A virtuoso violenist touches the hearts of her audience…The mystery of life in a strip cartoon…Dostoyevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov…Rodin’s The Kiss, Hands.”

Well, on the ‘fun side’ the Sun-Moon blend of November 3, 2020 includes a ‘glorious sense of the ridiculous’ which may turn out to be a comedic balm for our wounded nation while it installs a clown into the Oval Office.

Full Moon in Capricorn, June 27, 2018

Keeping an eye on Saturn in Capricorn by the light of the June 27th Full Moon!

Libra Seeking Balance

Saturn weighs heavily on us during this Full Moon at 06° 28′ Capricorn on 27 June 2018 09:54 PM PDT because it tightly conjoins the Capricorn Moon. Those who have been playing fast and loose with the rules are likely going to hear about it in no uncertain terms. However if we have been fulfilling our responsibilities in a careful, dedicated manner, we may finally begin to see some return for our efforts.

Adding a nice touch of innovative energy to this lunation is Uranus in Taurus trine the Moon-Saturn conjunction and sextile the Cancer Sun. This is a great combination for coming up with fresh, practical ways to increase productivity in our lives without sacrificing quality of life. It will be interesting to see how the naturally cautious Cancer-Capricorn axis responds to Uranus in Taurus’s need to build something new. One possible result is dramatic improvements in the way…

Donald Trump and Carelli’s 4 Virgo Symbol

On October 25, 2017 on Stars Over Washington I published a post concerning the 2017 and 2019 Secondary Progressed (SP) New Moons of Donald Trump (2019) and Adolf Hitler (2017).

That both SP New Moons fall upon 3Virgo+ seems significant to me due to the degree’s Sabian Symbol and the shared bigotry and eugenic-style views of both politicians. Follow the link for the entire picture but its gist is, “Black and White Children Play Together Happily…”. Also note that the post also contains the natal midpoint pictures of Trump and Hitler (for the sake of comparison).

As you know, Trump was ‘victor’ in 2016 and was inaugurated in 2017 while mired within his Balsamic phase of the Moon, the darkened phase full of endings and separations, a time when sneakiness abounds and things can ‘go bump in the night’. Symbolically, he remains within it now yet light will begin to dawn and a glimmer of a new phase of life will begin with his SP New Moon which perfects on September 19, 2019 in early Virgo- not that an instant difference will be felt or observed.

Here I shall add to the Sabian Symbol a partial quote concerning what *Adriano Carelli has to say about ‘4 Virgo’ to which I have added a few remarks in (italics):

“A steamroller”: A craze for planning and technology; a naive faith in purely mechanical progress; contempt for individual distinctions; love of the extreme and of the absolute. Some features of fatality in the existence, something inexorable in the character. A massive strength, an ability to lay out on broad lines work to be carried out by others and to give it the finishing touches after completion.

This same force, instead of preparing and perfecting usefully the work of others, can stay fruitless and can sponge upon its environment; or, even worse, instead of loveling (leveling? jc) and paving the way for the execution of the work planned, he can be employed to destroy and raze everything aimlessly to the ground.

{}

…where the stars point to fondness for the fruitless, artificial life usually led by the smartest set of society, a rush for pleasure will swallow up wealth laboriously built up by the ancestors. Plenty of well-meaning and helpful friends will be powerless to save the native from bankruptcy; once collapsed, neither his taste nor his artistic gifts (‘The Art of the Deal’? jc) will be of any avail. A third case is possible: an aggressive, destructive, brutal, and despotically leveling nature–in a word, a downright Vandalic or Hunnish character.

Undeniable in all cases is a profound sense of truth (he knows it but won’t tell it! jc), unaccountably coupled with fast living or ruthless destructiveness. (Or  both–jc.)

Example: in this degree is the Third Reich’s Mars as ruler of the Sun (Sun’s degree) and therefore lord of the MC, viz., indicative of the government and the army.”

Also note that a solar eclipse in Mr. Trump’s Prenatal Solar Eclipse (PE) Saros Series (2 Old North) perfects on July 12, 2018 with themes of ‘unfortunate news’ and ‘endings and separations’ yet ‘fast action can bring good results’ (Brady).

edit 13 July 2018: who exactly are the results good for? jc

Rants & Raves by Dyslexia Victoria Online

Only great minds can read this. This is weird, but interesting!…” is an amusing email attachment you will find at the end of this blog that makes the rounds on the internet – but for Dyslexics – this is how they identify words. They recognize the shape and letters of the word; not necessarily the order of the letters except as they say in the blurb below, the first and last letter of the word. Dyslexics tend to rely on this method for reading and this can cause them to read words incorrectly because they are trying to recognize the “look” of the word.

This reading style also creates difficulty for a Dyslexic person’s ability to comprehend and remember what they have read because all their attention is directed to decoding the words they are reading and not automatically recognizing them. This is due to their issue memorizing…

Horoscopes: Putin and Rasputin

Rasputin 1916; see page for author [Public domain or Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

Below is a dual image of the natal horoscopes of Russian dictator Vladimir Putin (October 7, 1952) and ‘holy man’ and con artist Grigori Rasputin (January 22, 1869). As you see the charts are messily penned upon with astro-notes and both men were born during transit Uranus in Moon-ruled Cancer (see chart for the 3 dates of Rasputin’s Uranus Return/s around the time of Putin’s birth–Uranus in Cancer tells of those who fraternize with strange or unusual people). And both were/are visionary maverick who were born under Solar Eclipses in late Leo (astrological degrees!) with different Saros Series–15 North 1868/69 and 8 South 1952, yet conjoined by degree in the 25 to 28-degree range of royal, Sun-ruled Leo.

Rasputin’s 15 North theme: joy through commitment. Putin’s 8 South: separation, loss; possible physical injury (Brady). 8 South last perfected in 2006 @29Virgo; 15 North last manifested @22Scorpio as the Prenatal Solar Eclipse (‘PE’) of Winter Solstice 2012!

 

Putin-Rasputin

And curiously, Rasputin’s and Putin’s Solar Eclipses conjoin the natal Mars and Ascendant–with royal Regulus rising–of Donald Trump (who fancies himself a ‘king’ but you may know him as a con artist and a liar) and all were activated or triggered by The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 in the 1 North series, aka, The Mother of All Eclipses. The caution for Regulus: success if revenge is avoided, otherwise all that’s been gained will be taken away). 1 North themes: ‘unexpected events’ and ‘info is distorted and possibly false’ (Brady’s Predictive Astrology). Well, we’re certainly inundated by false information and so-called ‘fake news’ these days, aren’t we? And propaganda. Especially since deceptive, elusive, Neptune has been floating through its own sign of secretive Pisces and trailing paranoia, fear, flooding, leaks, contagion, fraud, scandal, and dissolving borders in its wake.

Now my intention here is to make these two natal horoscopes available online for future reference, speculative though their data may be, and naturally there are other cosmic links and time links between the two men, plus Mr. Trump. But in an effort to blog briefly, I shall close and leave them to you to sort out if and as you wish!

New Moon December 7, 2018

DC Horoscope: New Moon @15Sag07 December 7, 2018 2:20:15 am est White House Washington DC; Hour of the Moon (fluctuations; changes) with Venus in Scorpio rising in 1st house and leading a BOWL shape of the planets, emphasizing the lower hemisphere, and denoting signs Taurus through Libra as representing “challenges to existence” (The Guide to Horoscope Interpretation, M. E. Jones).

Taurus through Libra includes several of Mr. Trump’s natal planets, plus his natal Midheaven with nasty Algol conjoining @24Taurus. Gemini, of course, includes Trump’s natal Uranus-NN-Sun trio; Cancer includes his nibs’ Venus-Saturn conjunction, Leo includes his natal Mars and Ascendant (conjunct royal Regulus), and Libra brings in his problematic Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter trio of fantasy, schemes, and speculation (see chart, upper right–this trio is rising along with America’s natal Saturn @14Lib48, followed symbolically by US SP Mars Rx @18Libra (SP = Secondary Progressed–our Mars regressed and turned inward against ourselves since 2006).

This difficult, weakening condition for US Mars the warrior lasts until 2086 and tragically describes unlawful shootings by police against citizens, the ongoing crises of students vs students, parents vs children and vice versa, citizens arming up, death cults, and other violent events on US soil. That transit Neptune now floats through its own sign of murky Pisces only confuses issues, masks fraud and deception, and engenders contagions of fear and paranoia in the population.

New Moons Seed and Begin a New Cycle of Activity

As for December 2018’s double Fire Sun Sag-Moon Sag combination of conscious-unconscious energies, it’s the ‘comedian-preacher’ blend suggesting optimism, questing minds, and faith in the future as befits sign ruler Jupiter. Insincerity, cruelty, and corruption are unbearable for Sun Sag-Moon Sag folk who are full of good advice and need ‘fun’ and adventure within their relationships. And if memory serves, comedian Jon Stewart was born under it! Also born with this personality blend: Ludwig van Beethoven and philosopher-physicist Max Born. Here are two quotes, one from each:

“Give happiness and joy to many other people. There is nothing better or greater than that.” – Beethoven.

“Intellect distinguishes between the possible and the impossible.” – Max Born.
