Expanding Crazy

Bearing witness to the daily psychodrama emanating from the noxious Trump White House for nine long months has exhausted us. The constant stream of insults and petulance and rage create a never-ending barrage of crazy that wearies the very fabric of the soul.

It feels, however, that we are moving into an even more lethal phase in this war of Trump against the goodness of America. His rantings are now morphing into policies, and the barrage has become a veritable series of assaults against the body politic.  When he fails Puerto Ricans and dismisses and disdains their needs, he attacks all of us. When he sabotages the health care market for those with lower incomes to satisfy his compulsion to destroy all things related to the former successful and beloved president, he sabotages all of us. When he shreds environmental protections and trade agreements because he cannot tolerate any limits on his own actions or anything sanctioned by any president other than his own grandiose self, he shreds the collective future of all of us.

The presidency has become a giant, infantile tantrum. In his rage at the growing pushback and criticism against him, Donald Trump is escalating. He is wantonly destroying anything in his path that is not a testament to his imagined greatness. The only question is how much destruction must we witness before Congress or his administration stands up to stop him, if they ever do.

By mid-November, the long period of restriction and stress indicated in Trump’s chart for 2017 is coming to an end. He gets a bit of a break until some issues emerge in 2018.  The strain on him will again be pronounced during the Saturn station opposite his Mercury (8Cancer52) from March 9 through May 7. This may mark a backlash against some form of heightened aggression by Trump that develops when transiting Uranus trines his natal Mars (26Leo47) from February 26 to March 19, which itself is receiving a conjunction from solar arc Uranus. This period in late February and March will mark a triggering of a very impulsive and aggressive progression in his chart that continues through early July 2018 (solar arc Uranus conjunct natal Mars). Increased aggression, possibly military, also shows up on the US chart when transiting Pluto moves into a quincunx with US Mars from February 22 to April 24.  This will be a time to watch and require much effort to keep things contained as much as possible.

It is also possible we may see the first signs of some economic contraction in 2018, with Saturn going into Capricorn and opposing the US Venus (3Cancer06)/Jupiter (5Cancer55) conjunction. This will first come from January 6 to February 13 and then return during the second half of June and then for a long station opposite Venus from July 22 through October 2. The Saturn station opposite US Venus during the summer and early fall of 2018 is likely to bring economic hardship and possibly some other traumatic events that profoundly impact some segment or segments of the US population. Severe hurricanes or other dramatic, catastrophic events are likely during this period.

Now that this year is nearing a close, the most stressful year remaining for 45 will be 2020. Hopefully, it will be enough to eject him from his presidential perch, but even that is not yet certain.  Much will depend on who is running against him. In the meantime, it is becoming increasingly clear that Trump’s narcissistic addiction to endless praise and attention is expanding into a voracious addiction to power.  He emanates an almost a sadistic enjoyment each time his mere utterance of an unexpected phrase ripples out to shake the planet. This man is extremely dangerous and all the more so as he settles into his reign.

I do not know whether or not I’m glad I checked in. Your rant for history, and for the sake of all of us, scared me more than I already am. For the life of me I cannot figure out how this psychotic figure continues to belittle and berate anyone and anything that doesn’t reflect his narcissism, his grandiose visions of kingdom. To think that the only outspoken republican, Corker, is attempting to fiercely protect the constitution is heinous. Instead, those who might make impeachment possible (on any number of grounds) are preening for re-election. But re-election to what? Are we abrogating the constitution (which every member of service, and every member of congress swears to protect) to something so sinister it may pale in comparison to other dictatorships?

I was hoping for configurations that might indicate a burn and crash. Some health (be it body or mental) that would stop this impetuous bully. Obviously, our congress is far too spoiled on the fat of the people.

Thank you for writing this, for it will open a discussion we all need to be having.

Hi Nancy/Starlight,
It’s bewildering that Trump seems to thrive, no matter what he says or does. Why does anyone believe a word he says? Where’s the outrage from our legislative branch of government? When will Trump be restrained from using nukes at his own discretion? Honestly, I don’t get any of it.

Your astro-prediction that Trump has the potential to make it to 2020 is alarming. By then, everything will be destroyed. That said, I’m grateful you continue to freely share your remarkable insights with us.

I count the days until Trump, his wretched crime family and his goons are behind us. In the meantime, it’s like watching a tsunami. I see it coming. I know it’s going to be bad. There’s not a thing I can do about it.

In horror. KB

I would like to write with more hope but it is hard to do these days. Our much-heralded democracy has way too many holes in it. Perhaps it needs an upgrade given modern technology. We also need an ethical upgrade with clear rules written down. Precedent is no longer enough.

The GOP doesn’t stand for anything anymore but their own political self interest. No wonder their president only cares about himself and the adulation of his own power base. Meanwhile, we have morphed into a society where it is all about image and the manipulation of emotions, and nothing about substance. Eventually things will go too far and it will snap in the other direction. The question is how far and how much damage until it turns.

2020 is a brutal year for Trump. Maybe he will be impeached around then. I just find the November 2020 planets confusing, and it is possible he will be out before then.

In the meantime, the Saturn station next summer is troubling. The recent aftermath of the eclipse has been horrifying enough: Harvey, Irma, Maria, Las Vegas and now northern California.

Thank you, Nancy. God bless you for all that you do. I hope and pray that the autocratic one is restrained by the Higher Power.

So now we’re stuck with this tinhorn dictator? Nancy, I hope for all of our sakes that your predictions are wildly wrong. I don’t see this country surviving three more years of this preening madman.

Karen and Jackson, I echo your sentiments. And, I do believe that we need to focus on what we want our reality to be and not focus on the fear of what it could be.

Donald Trump Proudly Tweets He’s Destroying Health Care Economy That Employs Millions Of Americans

By First Amendment
Saturday Oct 14, 2017 · 6:32 AM PDT

The only thing I can say about Trump is that, from what I’m observing, for every step forward he tries to take, he ends up taking 1, 2, 3 steps back. Even if he survives this presidency, will he really accomplish anything but sound and fury on the world’s stage? I find it hard to imagine him fully executing any of his dastardly deeds.

…”sound and fury indicating nothing…” W. Shakespeare

These are the lies that Trump is telling to sabotage health care for millions

https://thinkprogress.org/the-lies-trump-tells-as-he-sabotages-health-care-for-nearly-22-million-people-12ea4f479c39/

I started a meme on social media posting Trump’s pic with the moniker:

“Fake President.”

Not fake news…just a fake President.
Nancy, maybe his demise will show up in the GOP chart or another key chart?

Hi Nancy,

I’m much more hopeful. There’s a bounty on his head…..

The first date for an anticipated North Korean provocation (Oct 10th) has passed without incident. Let’s see what happens on Oct. 18th which coincides with the Mars-Uranus quincunx – a significant date in N. Korean politics. If a North Korean missile launch were to occur on the 18th it should be interesting to watch Trump’s reaction the following day when the New Moon-Uranus opposition forms an exact sextile-trine to Trump’s natal Mars…….

Nancy,
Thank You for your insights, dark though they may be. I can’t help but hope all of this is for a higher purpose, but fear our republic may be near the end of its constitutional lifespan.

My brother had an interesting insight in the summer of 2016. He intuited that whomever won the election would be the ruination of their party, i.e. that if HRC won, the Dem Party would go out of business, but if DJT won, the Repubs would go out of business like the Whigs of the 19th century.

I certainly can see how if HRC had won, our predominantly Repub House and Senate would likely have played the same game of obstruction they did with Obama, and might well have impeached and convicted her of all sorts of bogus “crimes.” Think of it. We’ve been spared both Clintons having been impeached. I have no doubt our misogynistic, sexist, racist, classist R’s would have been determined to insure she had a failed presidency by any means necessary.

My hope is my brother was correct, that Mr. DJT will indeed bring down the R. Party, but also hopefully without bringing down the nation or bringing our species to extinction.

One of my chief concerns is not Trump, but his followers. Some pundits a couple of days ago opined that as DJT supporters believe what 45 says rather than the “fake” media, they are not psychologically prepared if evidence comes forth which results in his removal from office, either through impeachment or through the 25th amendment. There was concern that his removal might instigate some kind of violent rebellion. There is no doubt Trump HAS certainly encouraged his supporters to be violent. I feel Mr. DJT would not leave office without a fight.

If we survive these next few years, I suspect we will see some major constitutional reforms of the powers of the presidency and of voting rights.

How do you take your country back from a coup? With all the gerrymandering, voter purges, spam targeting, and election booth/ballot hijinks, (not to mention help from a foreign non-friendly) I can’t think of a better term than “coup” for what the GOP has pulled off on us.

Just as scary to me is Trump now turning more and more to the radicalized xtian evangelicals… the Dominionists. We could be witness to more than a few cabals that have been working decades to come to power. The question, to me, is will they (church/business/state) continue to join hands and support each other… or will they end up turning on the other when one thinks one has more power than the others?

I’m not a believer… but if I were, I’d say the rapture has come and gone and the Devil has been loosed upon the world.

The responses helped this morning. Eliseo, I too wonder how reworked the constitution might be, or even if it survives. The constitution is the stickler.

So far Trump has managed to trash the constitutional path beneath of our feet. We cannot pick up his spit and fury. Southern Poverty Law Center has been quick to point out that many groups supporting Trump both rhetorically and financially — primarily the dominionists — are hate groups. https://www.splcenter.org/hatewatch/2017/10/12/fueled-trump-upcoming-values-voter-conference-represents-peak-convergence-anti-lgbt-and

Sharon, I hope you’re right. I believe Barb will also keep us in the loop about long-long range of possibilities.

slightkc, that is one of the key questions. Wonder what the supremes will have to say about the Wisconsin case.

And Will, I smiled this morning, just seeing your post. I had posted earlier, asking if anyone had heard from you, and about the fires in your neck of the “woods”.

To add to the intrigue of the November 18, 2017 New Moon ~ 26 ’19 Scorpio (New Moon in quincunx to tr. Uranus 25 ’28 Aries/ Trump’s progressed descendant 25 ’38 Aries/ progressed Jupiter 24 ’06 Aries and additionally tr. Saturn at 26 ’22 Sag in trine to tr. Uranus) ; Marina of Dark Star Astrology offers some observations. It is striking in more ways than one:

“New Moon quincunx Uranus opens the door to liberate a bunch of crazed lunatics, unconventional rebels and quiet outsiders. At this New Moon there is a pathological need to shock and outrage. However Moon quincunx Uranus is often shy and uncomfortable with the notoriety the outrageous behaviour brings. This New Moon will see some folk being branded as attention seekers, when all they are doing is being themselves. The roots of this seemingly bonkers behaviour very often stems from upbringing.

…..There will be Mars square Pluto at the time of this New Moon which only adds to the tension. There could be some wild prophecy that comes out also. Predicting terrorism seems in bad taste these days since the probability of a violent event happening on a Full or New Moon is sadly quite high.”

If Mueller’s investigation isn’t going anywhere and this regime stays in power for even three more years (which means it will stay in power for as long as it wants), then we’re done as a representative democracy, and probably done as a planet capable of sustaining life.

Big expose in today’s WP and on 60 Minutes tonight about how Congress let the drug industry destroy the DEA’s attempts to control the opiate epidemic. I hope this gets a ton of coverage over the next few days. It is truly shameful.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/investigations/dea-drug-industry-congress/?utm_term=.1ec459e7479c&hpid=hp_rhp-banner-main_deanarrative-hed%3Ahomepage%2Fstory

“The drug industry, the manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and chain drugstores, have an influence over Congress that has never been seen before,” said Joseph T. Rannazzisi, who ran the DEA’s division responsible for regulating the drug industry and led a decade-long campaign of aggressive enforcement until he was forced out of the agency in 2015. “I mean, to get Congress to pass a bill to protect their interests in the height of an opioid epidemic just shows me how much influence they have.”

With a few words, the new law changed four decades of DEA practice. Previously, the DEA could freeze drug shipments that posed an “imminent danger” to the community, giving the agency broad authority. Now, the DEA must demonstrate that a company’s actions represent “a substantial likelihood of an immediate threat,” a much higher bar.

“There’s no way that we could meet that burden, the determination that those drugs are going to be an immediate threat, because immediate, by definition, means right now,” Rannazzisi said.

Psychologists march through New York to call for Trump’s removal …

https://www.rawstory.com/…/psychologists-march-through-new-york-to-call-for-trum…

A group of psychiatrists, psychologists and other mental health professionals marched through New York City on Saturday to call for President …

More than 120 mental health professionals marched along Lower Broadway to publicly advocate for the presidential Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment and end Trump’s presidency. The amendment allows for a cabinet to oust a president from office should they become “unable to discharge the powers and duties” of the presidency.

“We can sense the power of Trump’s underlying fear that he is worthless and weak by how intensely he resists and retaliated against any criticism,” said Cornell University psychologist Harry Segal to the Post. “No matter how minor, he can’t let anything go.”

“We’re actually suffering from his narcissistic personality,” said clinical psychologist Michelle Golland. “He has no empathy. You can feel it, the way he spoke about the San Juan mayor… She has PTSD and our president mistreats her. She is re-victimized. That is a narcissist.”

“If we survive these next few years, I suspect we will see some major constitutional reforms of the powers of the presidency and of voting rights.”

I think you are right. My guess is the Sibly Pluto return will usher in great changes in the laws of the country.

Who here believes that hate group members and their friends outnumber decent, fair minded, peace loving people in this country? If the system goes down Red state citizens will suffer in greater numbers than Blue state citizens. Would they continue to back the Right?

Thanks again Nancy for the space to come together in these trying and troubling times!

Your comment on the opioid problem brings to mind a thought I had some time ago: That I wonder where this excess of opiate sources are coming from? And was there some dark deal made originating with the Afghanistan warlords for profit? Al-la shades of drugs for guns during the Reagan era and those shadowy figures pulling the strings then too. Greed is the common denominator (I knew someone who was a young pilot back then who I later learned had been flying clandestine drug runs for the govt/cia? for big bucks)

As I’ve said before, I think this whole unravelling throughout the globe needs to be looked at through the lens of linked criminal enterprises, rather than traditional national politics. We are outraged primarily because we look at in terms of ‘normal politics’; but as global criminality, often in the guise of vulture capitalism, things are progressing as would be expected.

A long time ago, I heard someone say that the path to becoming spiritual is designed not to make your life easy, but to make your life hard; through hardship and trial your connection to the divine is better maintained, ‘it keeps you praying’.
It seems as though these times truly embody that thought.

Karen F. & Bob,
I’ve long felt we need to pledge allegiance to the Constitution, not to the flag.

I suspect Congress will take back their power to declare war. President’s have had too much leeway on war making since the end of WWII.

Also the qualification issue; I think a number of traditional but unrequired practices which have been practiced by potential presidential candidates will likely become encoded in law, tax returns, medical AND psychiatric check-ups, etc.

Hopefully, we’ll get a modern make-over for our constitution with proportional representation, the ERA amendment, redefinition of corporations as NON-Persons, campaign finance reform, etc.

And here’s a big one…Climate change and demographics will require us to move our capital further north and westward. I believe that in a few decades the Southern and Southwestern states will “go out of business” from Insurance company withdrawal, sea level rise, increased average temperatures, desertification, and consequent de-population.

IMHO, if we are wise we should not wait until the Jefferson memorial is partially under water! Dikes, and seawalls please!

Politically, I foresee a high probability the far Right will somehow self-destruct as such movements usually do, and an eventual reactive sharp lurch to the “Left,” toward Dem. Socialism. Although I’ve self-described as a Democratic Socialist for the past 54 years, I fear Dem. Socialists will go entirely too far with some untested and unworkable ideas requiring a further correction of course by the 2060’s if not earlier.

kiwi,

There was a VERY interesting expose in the New Orleans Times Picayune this weekend about a local pharmacist who, to heal from his teenage son’s killing by a drug dealer (from whom he was purchasing drugs) in the late ’90s, started an investigation of an extremely corrupt and addicted M.D. in town who had a pain management clinic that. For cash payment only, she wrote (largely) Oxycontin prescriptions for anyone and everyone, sick or not, and hired the New Orleans police to guard her offices while people lined up around the block 24/7. No law enforcement agency, nor the DEA, cooperated to stop her until the medical board investigated and, with the pharmacist’s help, revoked her license to practice medicine. She got it back, but only briefly, and eventually was involved in a terrible auto accident that incapacitated her. This is an extreme example, but this type of thing played a big role in the opiod epidemic of today. Heroin is cheaper and more obtainable than pills, I’ve heard. There are now class action law suits against pharmaceutical companies for their role.

The Madness of Donald Trump
The pressures of the presidency have pushed Trump to the edge, but is he crazy enough to be removed from office?

http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/features/taibbi-madness-of-donald-trump-removal-25th-amendment-w504149

Excerpt:
“In someone of his economic background and age, [the decline] is somewhat uncommon,” he says. “Then again, it’s a trend. People of my generation got more information from TV than books, and people of the next generation get more information from the Internet, and that exercises less of your cognitive reserve.”

This is a huge part of the problem of trying to gauge whether or not Trump is mentally unfit for office. It isn’t just that 63 million people specifically endorsed his nuttiest behaviors with a vote. It’s also that maintaining modern American media habits can make most anyone seem like a victim of organic brain damage.

In a kind of awful satire of the current American experience, part of what got Trump elected is the camaraderie he shared with other reality-averse Americans who similarly chose to live in castles of self-aggrandizement, denial and blame shifting, a journalistic product we offer to just about everyone these days.

Trump is almost certainly worse than most of his voters. He’s likely more grandiose, less empathetic and less capable of handling criticism. But his phobias about science or history or inconvenient facts, along with his countless conspiratorial hatreds and prejudices, are things he shares with millions of people. They voted for this, which creates as confounding and ridiculous a conundrum as has ever been observed in an industrial democracy. Can a country be declared unfit?

“Can a country be declared unfit?” I think more people are fit than unfit in the U.S. That’s not based on a scientific survey but observation and the fact that 63 million is still only 20% of the U.S. population of

Meanwhile, the NY Times seems to have published this to dissuade attacking N. Korea…..”more than 6,000 N. Korean hackers are fully capable of unleashing global havoc!”

You are so right about Trump fatigue for all of us; however, some of us are only getting stronger in our soul intentions, coming together as a group to invoke light, love and goodwill for this planet. WE will turn our misguided hatred into a greater service and love for this planet. I do not know what is going to happen to Trump but I do see that he is very weary and worried. He has bags under his eyes and he can barely open them at times. He does have a woman currently who is asking for his federal sexual files. And, I think that Putin is putting a lot of pressure on him to do something that Putin wants. There is Mueller and the continued putting together a case against Trump. The only pleasures he gets is dismantling anything Obama implemented and playing golf. Increasingly the media is exposing his lies and unfitness and many of them wonder how much longer this craziness can go on. There is power in group thought and intentions so many of us can and should join a group who are working to bring about changes for the good of mankind. We cannot allow this dark time to kill our hope and allow us to be to tired to continue to fight on.

Hi Sharon,

Yes. Thank you. I did note the contents.

David Jolly, former Republican Congressman stated he believed the nation would be much safer, much better off were the Democrats to take the House in 2018. He also stated he is not the only Republican who believes that would be better.

https://www.rawstory.com/2017/10/former-gop-rep-stuns-the-republic-might-be-safer-if-democrats-take-over-the-house-in-2018/

Former GOP Rep. David Jolly on Monday made a stunning remark about his own party’s power, suggesting maybe the United States will be “safer if Democrats take over the House in 2018.”

Jolly and MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell were discussing Speaker of the House Paul Ryan’s (R-WI) recent claim that “the United States Senate” is Congress’ “biggest obstacle to getting tax reform passed.”

“Sen. Mitch McConnell can’t be happy with that,” O’Donnell told his guest.

“No and look, there’s always been a divide—at least in recent history—of the chambers,” Jolly explained. “But listen, the Republican party never really recovered and found their footing from the emergence of the Tea Party, from the emergence of the likes of Sarah Palin, that has now manifested in the likes of Steve Bannon and Donald Trump.”

“What is different now is that we have a president who’s known to be unstable,” he continued. “We have a president who’s known to be risky when it comes to matters of national security.”

Jolly noted what started out as an “emerging rebellion within the Republican party” that McConnell and former House Speaker John Boehner couldn’t figure out has transformed into a much greater threat.

“[McConnell and Boehner] still haven’t figured it out, and now it’s real life consequences and potentially dangerous consequences,” Jolly said. “So I’ll be honest with you: Personally, as a Republican, in the past few weeks I’ve wondered, ‘Is the Republic safer if Democrats take over the House in 2018?’”

“I raised that issue with the leading Republican in D.C. last week and the remarkable thing is he had been thinking exactly the same thing,” Jolly added. “This is a president that needs a greater check on his power than Republicans in Congress have offered.”

Yesterday at a news conference Trump stated how difficult and hard it is for him to call the families of fallen soldiers after being asked by a reporter had he contacted the four deceased solderis slain in Niger recently. He said no and went on and on about how it was so difficult for him to speak to the families, very difficult, and made it all about him, yet that is his duty. Next he stated that it is not the military’s job to deliver food and water to Puerto Rico, who are Americans! This man obviously lacks compassion and empathy and is truly unfit to lead America.

You got that right, Angellight!

Just listening to Barach Obama at the Sept. ’17 address to Global Citizen Convention in Canada https://theobamadiary.com is enough to inspire me to keep working for the democracy we want and should have if we all participate according to our unique gifts. These two short videos (about 20 minutes in total) are worth the time. I’m sure there are many more statesmen around the globe doing quiet work to get us back on course if we but search them out. Nancy’s blog is a great forum for spreading the light of knowledge as well as inspiration, and for that I thank you, Nancy, and all the participants who post here.

ASTRAEA
Astraea is an asteroid that represents the eyes. It represents also what we “see” visually and how we are affected by what it is we see.

Astraea is also an asteroid that indicates an inability to let go or resolve.

So if you “see” something with Astraea in mind, it is likely you will not be getting over what it was that you did see.

Those who have Astraea for example conjunct or in aspect to Venus will not get over their relationships. There could also be a tendency to leave a job but later go back to it, even if only for a moment.

There is no burning of bridges when Astraea is involved. There is a lack of closure with this energy.

Astraea is about how we dealing with those endings that are left dangling.

If Astraea falls in the fifth there may be some unresolved ending with relationships or regarding a child. It may be that it is difficult to finish one’s creative projects.

So whatever planet is aspecting Astraea in the chart, will affect the energy of whatever it is that is left hanging.

Here’s a look at the process, which likely would take many months, if not years, to develop:

• First, articles of impeachment are drafted, most likely by the House Judiciary Committee or from the findings of an independent counsel. Notably in the case of Trump, who still faces unanswered questions about his taxes and business dealings, the misdeeds need not have occurred after his election.

• The full House has “the sole Power of Impeachment,” according to the Constitution. Each article of impeachment requires a simple majority vote.

• The Senate has “the sole Power to try all Impeachments,” with the chief justice of the United States presiding. A two-thirds vote is needed to convict.

• Punishment is severe — at least removal from office, and possibly “disqualification to hold and enjoy any Office of honor, Trust or Profit under the United States.”

Congress also can stop short of impeachment and call for a lesser form of censure or sanction. And the 25th Amendment gives it the power to remove a president who is deemed by the vice president and Cabinet officials to be “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office.”

Everything after the third paragraph should be in quotes.

Patty,
Were collusion between Trump, his campaign, and the Russians absolutely proven, I’m not confident the R’s would have sufficient integrity to deal with it appropriately or honestly. Were Trump & Pence removed from office, Speaker Ryan would become president. I think it far fetched to think the little rascal would appoint HRC as vice president, then resign so the rightful winner could assume the office.

I think it highly probable collusion with the Russians occurred and Mr. 45 & company are guilty of treason. I think it highly improbable they will receive their “just desserts.”

We’ve never faced such a peculiar situation in Am. History. Our Constitution is fairly inflexible in this regard. There is no direct way constitutionally for quick redress. It will likely be addressed after the fact only if Dems retake the House in 2018.

Florida College Braces for Protests Over White Nationalist’s Speech

US News & World Report
Oct. 19, 2017

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (Reuters) – Hundreds of police officers wearing bulletproof vests were deployed at the University of Florida on Thursday to guard against unrest over a speech by a white nationalist that was expected to draw thousands in protest.

Richard Spencer’s event at the university in Gainesville, which prompted the governor to declare a state of emergency to prepare for possible violence, comes about two months after rallies by neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia, led to a deadly clash with counter-protesters.

The violence on Aug. 12 sparked a national debate on race, and Republican President Donald Trump came under fire for blaming both sides for the melee.

Spencer, who heads the National Policy Institute, a nationalist think tank, is scheduled to speak at 2:30 p.m. EDT (1830 GMT) at a campus performing arts center. The university said it did not invite him to speak, but was obligated by law to allow the event. It said it will spend more than $500,000 on security.

Daily Kos Joan McCarter 10/19/2017

excerpt

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s Republicans are busy this week ramming through the vehicle they will use to push their tax cut plan, their budget resolution. The entire document expresses the very essence of what it is to be a Republican. It cuts Medicare by $473 billion, Medicaid by $1 trillion, and a tax plan that gives massive breaks to the super wealthy and adds up to $1.5 trillion to the deficit over a decade. Because you know how much they care about the deficit. Republicans are absolutely shamelessly putting their priorities on full display, and will probably pass this thing by the end of the day Thursday.

It’s a proposal that, on the whole, would “cause most Americans’ incomes to fall more than they would gain from the tax cuts themselves.” That because the tax cuts are so concentrated on the rich, and the cuts involved would take so much away from low- and middle-income families. Those cuts would hurt the children of those families particularly.

Here’s what the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities identifies as getting the worst budget hits:

To offset the cost of a $1.5 trillion tax cut, Medicare payments to doctors, hospitals, and insurance plans would be automatically cut 4 percent for each of the next ten years, on top of the 2-percent cuts that those payments are already experiencing under the sequestration triggered by the 2011 Budget Control Act.
In addition, the automatic cuts would bring the complete elimination of more than 150 mandatory payments for farmers, health insurance, the military retirement trust fund, housing, social services, victims of crime, child nutrition, and many others, all lasting a decade.

Amid Distractions, Trump Quietly Appoints Extremist Judges to Lifetime Terms

Richard Spencer, Police and Protesters Descend On Univ. of Florida

http://edition.cnn.com/2017/10/19/us/university-florida-richard-spencer-speech/index.html

“Wow,” tweeted Josh Miller-Lewis, Sanders’ deputy communications director, “Bernie just dunked on this guy from the Peterson Institute.”

By the end of their exchange, Kirkegaard conceded that familiar right-wing talking points about single-payer healthcare—for instance, the oft-repeated claim about extraordinarily long waiting lists—are false.

The Vermont senator was in vintage form Wednesday night.

8 Times Bernie Sanders Made a Total Fool of Ted Cruz During Their Town Hall Debate

Here are eight of the Vermont senator’s best lines from their showdown on CNN.

1. On past tax cut plans.

“In two minutes, Senator Cruz is going to tell you that if we give tax breaks to the billionaires like George W. Bush did, like Ronald Reagan did, we’re going to create zillions of jobs and you’re all going to become very, very rich, that we have a trickle-down economic theory, tax breaks for the wealthiest people, the largest corporations, and, whoa, everything is good. That is a totally fraudulent theory.”

2. On the Kochs’ support for tax cuts.

“Now, the Trump Republican tax proposal that’s before us today, this proposal is being pushed by Senator Cruz’s campaign contributors, some of the wealthiest people in this country, by the Koch brothers, who are worth $90 billion. Why are they pushing this agenda? Because 80 percent of the tax breaks in this proposal will go to the top 1 percent.”

3. On the Bush tax cuts.

“Under President Bush, he did it. He gave tax breaks. And you know what happened? He gave tax breaks to the rich. And you know what happened? We lost 500,000 private sector jobs, and the national debt almost doubled under Bush. ”

4. On the long-term effects of the Reagan tax cuts.

“So this idea—of giving tax breaks to large corporations—is basically a fraud. Listen to what Ronald Reagan’s domestic policy advisor Bruce Bartlett said. He said that virtually every Republican, what every Republican says about taxes today, is a lie. Reagan’s OMB director David Stockman said that the idea that closing loopholes and adding growth will pay for trillions in cuts, quote, ‘is just completely fanciful and irresponsible.'”

5. On his alternative tax plan.

“I happen to believe that if you want to really get the economy moving, you do things like raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, put money into the hands of working people, provide targeted tax breaks to small businesses and working people, rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, creating 15 million jobs.”

Report Advertisement
6. On so-called ‘deficit hawks.’

“Now, Ted, I gather you are a big deficit hawk, yeah? How did you vote on the authorization bill for the Department of Defense which increased military spending by, if I’m not mistaken, $700 billion, so that we are now spending more on the military than the next 12 nations combined? Check—correct me if I’m wrong, Ted—I think you voted for that huge increase in military spending. I think that at a time when we have people working two or three jobs trying to make ends meet, where kids can’t afford to go to college and are leaving school deeply in debt, I happen not to think that spending $70 billion more on the military and giving a huge boondoggle to the military industrial complex that Dwight D. Eisenhower warned us about, I happen to think that was not a good idea.”

7. On Ted Cruz’s ulterior motives.

“Let’s examine what Senator Cruz really wants to do. He wants to see legislation passed that would give $1.9 trillion in tax breaks to the top 1 percent, significantly increase the national debt being passed on to our kids and our grandchildren. And in order to pay for these tax breaks for billionaires, he wants to throw 15 million people off of Medicaid, cut Medicare by over $450 billion, cut Pell Grants, cut programs like the WIC program, women, infant and children program, designed for low-income pregnant women and their little babies.”

8. On tax structures in Scandinavia.

Second point that I want to make, Ted, you said earlier—two points that I want to make here. Number one, we can have a debate about whether you like what’s going on in Denmark or not. Don’t compare Denmark to Cuba. Don’t compare Denmark to communist countries. Denmark has a higher voter turnout rate than we do. They’re a vigorous democracy, as are other Scandinavian countries.”

ProPublica spent weeks examining one distinctive group at the center of the violence in Charlottesville: an organization called the Rise Above Movement, one of whose members was the white man dispensing beatings near Emancipation Park Aug. 12.

The group, based in Southern California, claims more than 50 members and a singular purpose: physically attacking its ideological foes. RAM’s members spend weekends training in boxing and other martial arts, and they have boasted publicly of their violence during protests in Huntington Beach, San Bernardino and Berkeley. Many of the altercations have been captured on video, and its members are not hard to spot.

https://www.propublica.org/article/white-hate-group-campaign-of-menace-rise-above-movement

Just a reminder that Trump’s Jupiter at 17+ Libra is conjunct the US progressed Mars (which is retrograde) so when it leaves that conjunction with U
S Mars, maybe Trump will leave too.

The US progressed chart’s Mars opposes the progressed US Chiron in Aries. Prog. U
S Pandora at 17+ Gemini is trine US prog Mars and sextiles US prog. Chiron. I believe also that the US prog Hades is still conjunction the US prog. Saturn at about 3+ Scorpio, so transiting Jupiter will connect with them in a few days as he also trines the US natal Venus at 3+ Cancer.

Repulsive as he is I’m inclined to think that Trump is the medicine meant to cure ancient ills and it’s not going down easy but if it works perhaps it will be worth the horrible taste.

About Asterea alex, a little more positive view of her is “I will never leave you”. I really like that info re: eyes; that’s good. Thanks too for all the Bernie stuff, so unhappy I didn’t get to see the debate.

NZ politics just got a huge upset yesterday – minor parties agreed to join together in a coalition against the selling out of our country and land to wealthy foreigners and large global corporate interests. voters are split pretty much 50/50, but I voted this year for one of the minor parties for the first time because of their common sense positions – hopefully the coalition will hold for the common good without ego grandstanding – should be very interesting to see what happens next.

More dangerous than RUSSIA…
Further down:Cambridge Analytica, the data mining firm hired by the Trump Campaign to collect and use social media information to identify and *persuade* voters to vote (or not vote), through an activity known as political *microtargeting*. The company is principally owned by Robert Mercer, a hedge fund billionaire who supported Trump and was a leading investor in Breitbart. Stephen Bannon, Trump’s campaign chairman (after Manafort) and now chief strategist at the White House, was the vice president of Cambridge Analytica’s board as well as the executive chairman of Breitbart before joining Trump’s team in August.
I believe The Tea Party was a mind-control project.
The Koch Bro’s & Mercer’s are doing great harm to America now. Hitler did the same along these lines.

These Tea Party Clips shocked me regarding how American’s are so easily influenced to HATE their own fellow American’s.

Bernie to Visit Puerto Rico, Will Miss Women’s Convention

100 year anniversary coming up for the Balfour Declaration
http://star4cast.ca/balfour-declaration-imperial-opportunism/

Senate Republicans narrowly passed a $4 trillion budget plan Thursday, taking their first big step toward a tax reform package promised by President Donald Trump.

Approval of the nonbinding plan allows the Senate to use a special process known as “budget reconciliation” that would forestall a Democratic filibuster.

“Tonight we completed the first step towards replacing our broken tax code by passing a comprehensive, fiscally responsible budget that will help put the federal government on a path to balance,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. “We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity to replace a failing tax code that holds Americans back with one that works for them.”

The Senate plan, approved on a 51-49 vote, calls for $473 billion in cuts from Medicare over 10 years and more than $1 trillion from Medicaid.

If fully implemented, the plan would cut spending by more than $5 trillion over the next 10 years, with an average of approximately $540 billion per year over the life of the plan, according to a Congressional Budget Office estimate.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., was the only Republican to vote against the bill, joining all 46 Democrats and two independents.

“With recent transits of Saturn to )^*^%$&*%^’s Sun and GOP’s progressed Sun on November 4th this time in early November could see the first step in an impeachment process or a burden placed on the Congress by events regarding Puerto Rico or North Korea.”

I still stand by my pointing at January of 2020 as the most likely time for the cowardly scum in the White House to be removed from office.

The first step in the process is a long way from impeachment. As I posted before on March 31st, 2017 at 8:52 pm:

“So it is not likely that charges would be brought before 2019. Even then a Republican held Senate would not likely vote to convict. If party leaders made it clear to trump that the Senate had decided to convict in order to hopefully salvage seats in the general election of 2020 he would possibly decide to resign. Getting to that point could take until January 2020.”

There simply are no stronger negative aspects to his chart before the ones at that time. As can be seen these investigations take very long to progress as the targets are not cooperative, lying and not yielding the truth until forced to do so when their lies have been exposed through investigation, parsing testimony when it is given not under oath, and using every tactic they can think of to stall or hopefully block the investigation.

I pray you are correct in your informed guesstimate as to when 45 may leave office. Your previous posts as to your astrological reasoning appeared sound and logical. I just hope that between now and Jan. 2020 the fool doesn’t stumble us into a major conventional and/or nuclear war.

Good! Thx for the link alex, and thanks to you kiwi for the NZ election news. Very hopeful.

A couple of observations re: yesterday’s New Moon chart: 2 Yod-turned-Boomerang patterns, One complete within itself, the other completed by the US natal Moon, so that 2nd one affects just the US.

Boomerang #1. Sun/Moon in Libra at the apex of Yod (need to adjust) with the sextile between Chiron in Pisces and Sedna in Taurus, and with Uranus opposite the New Libra Moon, this is the primary pattern. Uranus in Aries is the boom in the Boomerang.

Boomerang #2. Uranus in Aries is sextile the US natal Moon in Aquarius that completes a Yod with the Mars in Virgo who opposes Chiron in Pisces. Mars is the apex of the Yod (needs to adjust) then, while Chiron is the boom in this 2nd Boomerang pattern.

There is much shifting (adjusting) going on during the next 2 weeks, especially in the U.S., some of which is due to the U.S. people (US Moon) waking up (US Moon sextile Uranus in this New Moon chart).

A reminder that transiting Chiron and transiting Uranus have been in a running sextile for several years now and will continue to maintain that sextile for some time into the future. This is teamwork beyond parallel in astrology.

That they each take part in both of these Yod-turned-Boomerang patterns reveals some of the big picture transformation happening to us. Each is the Boom in one of the two Boomerang patterns in yesterday’s Libra New Moon chart. The Boom planet/point in a Boomerang pattern determines how the energy (of the 3 planets/points in the attached Yod) will be dispersed.

For example, Mueller’s south node conjuncts the US natal Pluto in Capricorn and in this NM chart, the two of them form a grand trine with Sedna in Taurus and Mars in Virgo, each of which participates in one of the two yod-turned-boomerang patterns – so yet another connection between the two patterns going on (Sedna and Mars) until the next full moon at least.

A south node symbolizes what is ingrained behavior and no longer serves the individual in growth but is just fine for giving away, such as Mueller’s expertise now being given to the US government in service.

Which brings us to a 3rd Yod being provided by this Libra New Moon chart’s Galactic Center in Sagittarius (so close to trans. Saturn) at the apex point of this 3rd yod (where shifting occurs) with the New Moon chart’s Sedna that sextiles Mueller’s NORTH NODE in Cancer. North Nodes are the path forward, where opportunity awaits.

Uranus in Aries in this NM chart also forms a T-square to the Mueller South Node (conjunct US Pluto) and his North Node, and since Uranus in Aries opposes the NM in Libra it all comes together as a grand cross with Mueller’s nodes. This is challenging for the man to say the least.

BUT, as I said before, Mueller’s South Node is in a grand trine with the NM chart’s Sedna and Mars, and because Mueller’s North Node in Cancer – in this case, the Kite position in a Kite pattern ( a 4th planet/point opposite one of the planets or points in a grand trine) – provides opportunities, and since the US Mercury (data) is only 3 degrees from Mueller’s North Node, the trials and tribulations afforded by the grand cross (Mueller’s nodes and NM opposite Uranus) are merely hurtles to be crossed, one at a time.

Hang in there all, the plot thickens and confusion (appears to) reign, but there IS a plan; a method to the madness if you will, and I personally (thanks to astrology and hundreds of charts), have seen a teeny glimpse of what benefits will come (to us) eventually from this apparent madness.

By sharing what insights and information we have access to we should all maintain a semblance of sanity through the process. Thanks especially to Nancy’s remarkable talent and common sense and the Aquarian attribute of group participation we will survive. She will probably write a book about all this.

Forgive my error earlier when I said that transiting Uranus and transiting Chiron were in an ongoing sextile when it is a semi-sextile aspect they form. It is still remarkable teamwork and while we may experience “wounding” in the processes that these two symbols represent, the final result is an increase in consciousness on a wide scale. I feel sure that Uranus energy without the “buffer” of Chiron would be overwhelming, as in mass madness and we’re not there yet.

Oops, getting used to new device and used the wrong sign-in name and now that comment is in moderation. Just wanted to change the earlier info re: the ongoing aspect between trans Uranus and Chiron from sextile to semi-sextile.

… in the words or our new, young, female, prime minister:

Ms Ardern said her Government wouldn’t measure economic success just on things like GDP.
“The measures for us have to change. We need to make sure we are looking at people’s ability to actually have a meaningful life, an enjoyable life, where their work is enough to survive and support their families.”
Asked directly if capitalism had failed low-income Kiwis, Ms Ardern was unequivocal.
“If you have hundreds of thousands of children living in homes without enough to survive, that’s a blatant failure. What else could you describe it as?”

If civilization collapses, New Zealanders will likely be the folks who lead and rebuild the world. I’ve studied cultural geography all my life. Intellectually as well as intuitively I’ve felt for decades that New Zealand has a real future. I’m less sure about the rest of the world. G-d/G-ddess Bless New Zealand!

t’s not news to most people that the US is no longer a true Democracy. Gilens and Page proved it in 2014, using hard data.

More recently, the Economist’s Democracy Index, dropped the US down to a “flawed democracy,” in 2016, and when the firmly neoliberal Economist thinks you have issues with freedom – you’ve got issues.

It’s one thing to lose our freedoms; it’s quite another to lose them to a collection of anti-science whack jobs straight out of the middle ages.

And of course, with Herr Trump doing his best to neutralize the already eviscerated press, scare the hell out of us, keep us distracted from real issues, and govern by tweets, things have only gotten worse.

“It’s one thing to lose our freedoms; it’s quite another to lose them to a collection of anti-science whack jobs straight out of the middle ages.”

What’s not as well understood is precisely how a right wing de facto coup caused the US to move from a democracy to an oligarchy, and how the inmates took over the revolt.

Democrats – partners in crime

The fact that a mere 26.1 percent of the eligible voters could put this ignoramus in office is directly a result of Democratic malfeasance. How? Well, if you read Clinton’s latest book, or the misguided ramblings of neoliberals like Doug Schoen the neoliberal mafia that controls the Democratic Party still seems to have no clue that they enabled his victory by refusing to stand for the vast majority of Americans who are – and have been for some time now – getting screwed by decades long allegiance to the uber wealthy and elitist interests in lieu of the people’s interests. Their cynical centrist-one-day, faux-left the next, center-right the next, while pandering to economic elites and corporate America has shrunk the base of the Party from 50 percent of Americans back in the late sixties to less than 30 percent today.

continued – Douglas Schoen

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Schoen

Schoen has identified as a member of the Democratic party, but has frequently criticized the party and taken positions on various political topics at odds with the party’s views. Schoen’s critics have called his identification as a Democrat “phony” and calculated to help his Fox news career.

Steve Benen called Schoen the quintessential “Fox News Democrat” and said he is “actively hostile towards [Democrats] and the party’s agenda.

And I yearn for Female Leadership at the American helm…hopefully some day…soon.
Sadly, our American masculine leadership obviously believe only they are superior and only they possess the Stellar Leadership Qualities.

Not trusting anything Trump does… nor the reasons he he gives… what do you think of his EO on Friday to call up past AF pilots?

Granted, the AF has concentrated in recent years not on human pilots, but on drones… but that this EO could be used by any of the services, and there doesn’t seem to be an age break-off… my gut turned over when I read it.

The longer Mueller goes on with his investigation, the closer I fear we are to all-out war. It may seem to him to be the only way to hold on to power, and the fact we have a Cabinet made up of Generals and neo-cons doesn’t lend me any calm.

Senate Republicans Are Trying to Give the 1 Percent a $1.9 Trillion Tax Break

Senators Bernie Sanders and Tammy Baldwin led the opposition with a pair of amendments that challenged a “horrible bill.”

JOHN NICHOLS

https://www.thenation.com/article/senate-republicans-are-trying-to-give-the-1-percent-a-1-9-trillion-tax-break/

The Senate voted Thursday to massively increase income inequality in the United States by using the power of the federal government to redistribute wealth upward. By a narrow 51-49 vote, the chamber backed a budget measure that clears the way for Republicans to enact epic tax cuts for corporate elites, mega-millionaires and billionaires.

How epic? “At a time of massive income inequality, this budget provides $1.9 trillion in tax breaks for the top 1 percent,” argued Senator Bernie Sanders.

They downplayed the risks of addiction and exploited doctors’ confusion over the drug’s strength.

When progressed Sibly Mars went retrograde on July 20, 2006, the chart’s East Point (an exact 90° square to the MC) at the White House was at 151°09′.The total solar eclipse on August 21st was at 151°01′.

Sibly Mars was at 198°26′ when it stationed. On October 29th transit Pluto at 288°27′ will be exactly square that position of Mars.

The timing of this is noteworthy because of the recent and ongoing discourse by the leaders of the U.S. and DRK.

“The rogue regime said the U.S. should expect an “unimaginable strike at an unimaginable time,” according to a statement released by the state-run Korean Central News Agency.”

Alex, I have studied and agreed the drug makers of Oxycontin did misrepresent their drug. So do a LOT of drug makers… if not ALL of them at some point. We wouldn’t be having all these late night “sue ’em all” commercials, otherwise (IMO). One of the best drugs I ever took for my chronic sinusitis was eventually pulled off the market because it interacted with practically *everything* you could eat. But for me, it only did one thing — stopped my incessant nose from running and gave me freedom from my allergies. (sigh)

That said, there’s a big difference between running noses and drug addiction. BUT… there are three things working here that media sound bytes don’t allow.

1. There is a group of people for whom anything can be addictive. Food, drugs, gambling, running, exercise, etc. Anything done to excess is bad. Period. The fact that this country caters to the lowest common denominator for all it’s people is to our sorrow… both for the addictive personality types, and for the rest of us.

2. Not withstanding some of the hardest hit areas of O’D’s, don’t believe the numbers; they’ve been manipulated. They’ve confounded the numbers of heroin users, and often counted them 2x or more in their solutions of “who started what, and when.”

3. Totally getting lost in ALL of this, are those of us who depend on these medications to live a halfway normal life… including being able to continue to work. Most of us, I daresay, have struggled the say way I have. We worked for years with a single doctor to perfect (as much as possible) a routine that allows us to continue functioning in this world.

I asked my doc many years ago if I was addicted to hydrocodone. She told me “no”… you are dependent upon it. She said I’d probably have a few bad days if I just stopped it one day… but worse, the pain would be overpowering. I was dependent upon the meds to maintain my lifestyle of a normal, working woman.

Let me say this clearly — WE are terrified. We’ve seen our docs limited in the # of pills they can give us per month, regardless of how many years we’ve been on personalized care plans with them.

We’ve gone from being assumed to being “druggies” to being assumed we’re selling our pills. AS IF!!! Anyone who lives with chronic, debilitating pain looks at each pill as a life saver!

If you’re in a “pain clinic,” you are now assumed guilty before being proven innocent — innocence declared at the point of a lab on your urine. How freaking demeaning — when all you want to do is keep on bringing home a salary while not being bent over in agony.

There has been talk of taking these meds off the market. Already, the only drug that ever helped my elderly mother, demerol, is no longer available to her except in the hospital, in rare times they don’t want to overload her with fentynal.

I see this whole damn mess… including the fed refusal to legalize pot… as mean-spirited xtian coercion; their religion tells them suffering is good. Anything to take away from it demeans and tries to outwit God. To which I say… I’m not a xtian!

It’s also a wonderful way to take an entire class of people and put them in a subservient, controlled world. “You want your pills? You’ll do “x,” then.”

When docs are not allowed to treat their patients, and those patients are in agony… what did they THINK was gonna happen? People who’d never done anything more than pot (if even that), go looking for heroin because they’ve heard it’ll stop their pain as well as or better… and OD. Gee. That took a lot of intellectualism to figure out. Or maybe, none of the PTB ever had experience with someone in debilitating pain?

I travel over an hour to my doc, now that she’s moved to another city. I went without pain meds for a year, looking for someone who’d look at my record, MRIs, CTs, etc, and see I wasn’t trying to game any system. I gave up finally. I have to travel to her every 3 months for a prescription. That script can be filled THE DAY BEFORE the meds are expired, and no earlier, regardless of anything. It also took me 6 months to get my Insurance (I’m Fed Insurance, btw), to approve and pay for any of it. My script, for Hysingla (a new class of opiates that are anti-abusable) cost us close to $700 for each of those 6 months, and it doesn’t prevent break-out pain. That doesn’t even count the other meds I need.

Believe me, there are some very dark times when I’m trying to juggle all this while dealing with break-out pain and the other lupus symptoms, while continuing to work and caretake my Mom while supporting my own little family, I think those who OD are the lucky ones.

Trust me… you’re going to see a LOT of suicides if they ever take away our meds. Because there’s nothing “non-addictive” that takes their place.

I’m sorry… I don’t want you to think I’m coming down on you, alex. I’ve fought pain all weekend; first main cold front and rain on top of that. I’m just feeling very vulnerable right now. But that in no way belittles what I said before — we are scared!

We’ve already seen Betsy deVos kill 72 policies for disabled kids. My fed work place has suddenly decided NO ONE telecommutes now. We’re worried what comes next — especially when the “opiate epidemic” gets media play over and over.. as well as the “push” to get Trump to call it a National Emergency.

The solution? For those who are addictive personality types — get them into treatment — NOT jail!

Those of us who are on (or will one day be on) long term pain mgmt plans, give us our meds and get out of our lives. We have docs. We have lives.

More Methadone clinics, more naloxone, and decriminalize the whole situation so people will SEEK help when it’s needed. Fear of jail keeps people from help. Provide assistance and job help for those who are addicted for no good reason and kick it. Recidivism is reduced when a productive life is allowed.

Of course, we’d have to conquer mean spirited Republicanism — not to mention poverty, racism, and misogyny in order to do any of the above. And I, for one, don’t hold out for much hope on that anymore.

Ah, geez…you guys. I apologize! I didn’t mean to write a book!!! Please, forgive me.

Trump’s EPA Refuses To Provide New York Times Information On Its Plans To Poison The American Public

By Dartagnan
Sunday Oct 22, 2017 · 10:11 AM PDT

slightkc — I too have had to participate in the horror that is the “health care” system. Our current experiences are similar. As such I am treated much like an addict. Urine and drug screening is a must, and this by law. Many physicians find it more than onerous. Patients find it ridiculously expensive. Who really is benefiting?

Also be aware that drugs used to “help” — many injections — have in far too many incidents led to death and/or permanent disabilities. (I have experience with this as well.) Pharmaceuticals that have deleterious side effects still saturate the airwaves. (What was Clinton thinking?)

None of us get out of here alive. Having a “purity” judgment or grouping others into a category casting them as sinners or failures somehow (just as color of skin, religion, etc) diminishes us all.

During the month of October 2017 transiting Jupiter reached the cusp of the 11th house of the US chart (Sagittarius rising), crossed into the 11th house and then entered the sign of Scorpio. Jupiter then made a conjunction to the US natal Hades at 0+ Scorpio. The 11th house is described by Dane Rudhyar (The Astrological Houses) this way:

“In the 11th house every individual’s star of destiny, which shines at the Zenith of his living, becomes a vibrant source of power in actual operation. The realizations that fill the 10th house phase of experience are largely conditioned by what occurred during the 7th, 8th and 9th house phases. When the Zenith is reached, however, some new power fecundates the sum total of these last mentioned phases.

“This new power is the power of the greater collectivity, of human society, of the nation, of the universal Whole.” . . . . . . . “This power that descends from above operates in the 11th house as creative vision.”

The creativity of the Whole then would be what the 11th house represents in the US chart, and every other chart, according to Rudhyar.

When Jupiter entered Scorpio on October 10th transiting Mars at 22+ Virgo was on the cusp of the 11th house in a chart set for Washington DC. 22+ Virgo is also the degree of the US natal Neptune. That Mars on the cusp of the 11th house (at the moment Jupiter entered Scorpio) was T-square transiting Saturn at 22+ Sagittarius who was opposite transiting Moon at 21+ Gemini and the US natal Mars.

Trump’s natal Sun at 22+ Gemini opposes his natal Moon at 21+ Sagittarius. Trump symbolizes the US natal chart’s square between Neptune and Mars. A large part of Jupiter’s transit through Scorpio promises to expose much of this malignancy in the US chart through the life and times of Trump.

Trans Jupiter will reach the US natal chart’s (with Sagittarius rising) 12th house in February 2018. This comes after Jupiter makes a sextile to trans. Pluto in Capricorn. It will be the 1st of 3 sextiles between them starting in January and going to September 2018. The 12th house is about secrets, confinement and ending cycles.

In September, 2018 there will be a New Moon in Virgo that will trine transiting Pluto and sextile trans. Jupiter. At the same time trans. Saturn (2+ Cap) will trine trans. Uranus (2+ Taurus) and also be square trans. Chiron (0+ Aries) on the Aries Point, where the political becomes personal. As noted before, trans. Chiron and trans. Uranus are working in concert.

When seen within the context of the Jupiter in Scorpio cycle (and while trans. Jupiter is in the US 12th house of secrets, etc., and is sextile trans. Pluto) this New Moon at 17+ Virgo that sextiles Jupiter and trines Pluto takes on even greater importance. It will also square Trump’s natal Uranus in Gemini and trine Trump’s Jupiter in Libra.

However, trans. Jupiter in Scorpio will quincunx (need to adjust) Trump’s Uranus and trans. Pluto will square Trump’s Jupiter. It might even be fun to watch.

All of this astrology in September 2018 will be part of the Jupiter-ingress-Scorpio Effect where Mars is conjunct US Neptune and squares US Mars. With the Jupiter chart’s Mars in the 11th house of that chart, whatever the results may be, it looks to be a product of the creative vision of the collectivity; the creativity of the Whole.

RE: “Not trusting anything Trump does… nor the reasons he gives… what do you think of his EO on Friday to call up past AF pilots?”
&
“The longer Mueller goes on with his investigation, the closer I fear we are to all-out war.”

I agree with you entirely. It’s like a race between Mueller’s investigation and WWIII.

It’s becoming increasingly obvious Mr. DJT craves war. We already know the man intensely enjoys humiliating his adversaries and enemies. I’m beginning to wonder if he gets a sexual thrill from violence. He certainly encouraged it during his campaign.

I believe he wants to obliterate somebody, anybody, and N. Korea will serve quite nicely. But it could be any nation. I believe he privately feels powerless, and wants to kill for the thrill, i.e. for the “high” many feel in the process of and the aftermath of killing a fellow human being. I strongly suspect he actually hopes to use nuclear weapons.

His Friday EO to call up former strategic air command bomber pilots is really creepy to put it mildly. He’s planning for war.

And here’s an irony. Most all of the mechanics who maintained those bombers have passed on. To my knowledge, no one has been trained to maintain those particular bombers since they were retired from service by GHW Bush in 1991.

You are correct. There is no one alive to maintain WWII era bombers. My ex-husband flew F-16s. His brother was a Top Gun instructor (F-18s – and yes, he was in the movie). These are now considered old jets! They were computerized. trump better be careful or someone will resurrect Ike and elect him President.

Also, my husband just retired from Los Alamos National Laboratory. The nuclear weapon (the ONLY nuclear weapon) we had at in WWII is huge compared to what we have now. trump must be watching old movies late at night.

” It’s like a race between Mueller’s investigation and WWIII.”

“It’s becoming increasingly obvious Mr. DJT craves war.”

There is no way to predict how the astrology will play out but the entire time is ripe for aggression as there are many dates filled with holiday travelers and shoppers and I do not put anything past self serving trump.

trump’s natural inclination is to be aggressive but he goes beyond that as a bully.

His natal Sun-Mars midpoint is at 115°42′. Natal Saturn at 115°43′ is conjunct. His natal MC is at 51°48′. It is squared by his natal Mars-Pluto midpoint at 141°54′ (51°48′ + 90° = 141°48′). He has a natal paran wherein when natal Sun is on the ascendant natal Moon is on the descendant and natal Mars is on the IC. For birth place: Sun rises at 330°27′, Moon sets at 328°48′, Mars is on the IC at 329°26′. All of these points are swept by daily angles every day.

Other trying transits that soon follow that transiting Pluto square to the station of Sibly progressed Mars (exact on October 29 but extended many days before and after because of the slow motion of Pluto), all in right ascension except for Nov 5th and 19th.

Nov 4 transit Saturn conjunct GOP progressed Sun
Conjunct in longitude Nov 5

Nov 9 transit Saturn square inaugural Mars
Nov 9 Sibly progressed Moon conjunct sexual predator’s natal Moon
Nov 13 sexual predator’s progressed Moon conjunct his progressed Saturn/Pluto midpoint
Nov 14 Sibly progressed Moon opposite Sibly Mars
Nov 15 transit Mars conjunct Sibly Saturn

On Nov 19 transit Mars will square transit Pluto in longitude. It will square Pluto in right ascension on Thanksgiving Day.

A speculative thought. Knowing that the country has never changed presidents by election while it was at war, this self-centered sociopath may try to start a war as a way stop the investigation of him and his entourage.

RE: the use of the 25th Amendment
The excerpts below are from March 7, 2017 in Time Magazine

http://time.com/4692507/congress-remove-donald-trump-impeachment/

While theoretically possible, it is highly unlikely that the Vice President and the Cabinet would unite to remove the President absent a clear incapacitation along the lines President Woodrow Wilson experienced after a stroke. Even if there was a bipartisan consensus that he was unfit to serve, the President would have broad authority to remove his Cabinet before it could take any action.

But there is another provision in the Amendment that has received much less popular attention — one that could allow Congress to play a role in removing the President. And no, it isn’t impeachment. Instead, a little-known provision in Section 4 empowers Congress to form its own body to evaluate the President’s fitness for office, eliminating the need for the Cabinet’s involvement in the process (emphasis ours):

Whenever the Vice President and a majority of either the principal officers of the executive departments

or of such other body as Congress may by law provide,

transmit to the President pro tempore of the Senate and the Speaker of the House of Representatives their written declaration that the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office, the Vice President shall immediately assume the powers and duties of the office as Acting President.

There are two ways that Congress could still act on this provision.

The first approach would be to appoint a panel of independent medical practitioners to judge the health of American presidents. Former president Jimmy Carter has been a strong advocate for this approach, noting the advanced age and poor health of many U.S. presidents. Since the 1990s, Carter has expressed particular concern about the conflict of interests faced by the personal physicians to the President, who might otherwise be tasked with making a determination about medical fitness. These physicians often have personal relationships with the presidents they treat. (Carter’s was his tennis partner.) …

A second approach would be for Congress to appoint a body with no medical expertise whatsoever. Because the 25th Amendment does not require a medical diagnosis or consultation with medical professionals, Congress could even appoint members of its own ranks to the panel. This approach could give Congress the ability to enforce its own criteria for presidential fitness. For example, Congress could deem the President “unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office” if he is unable to be trusted with classified information by intelligence agencies. Congress could even use the threat of removal to exercise additional leverage over the President’s actions.

This approach would raise grave constitutional and moral questions about the proper role of Congress in our democracy. Moreover, in addition to sign-off from the Vice President, this path would likely require supermajorities in both houses of Congress to override a presidential veto, further underscoring the improbability of such a move.

IMHO, the first scenario described above is plausible. I believe we need a petition circulating requesting Congress convene that “such other body as Congress may by law provide” as our lives are in danger as long as this man is president.

Bob,
“A speculative thought. Knowing that the country has never changed presidents by election while it was at war, this self-centered sociopath may try to start a war as a way stop the investigation of him and his entourage.”

I believe you nailed it! But I also believe he desires war in any case. As I read the man, He suffers a writhing hurricane of deep, intense anger within, a storm which will drive him to war for the pure pleasure of it.

Remember what he said about the use of nuclear weapons in the summer of 2016? I’m paraphrasing, but I believe he said in an interview with Chris Matthews, “why have nuclear weapons if we don’t intend to use them?”

I haven’t done diagnosis in many years. I’ve moved on from the mental health field to other professions, and I’ve not met the man personally. But I’m dawning a dark feeling that nuclear explosions would be somehow orgasmic for this man.

Trump administration bars government scientists from speaking at climate change conference

By Hunter
Monday Oct 23, 2017 · 2:07 PM PDT

Right now trans. Mercury in Scorpio is trine trans. Neptune in Pisces, a configuration that trans. Jupiter will duplicate in December. Something we hear and/or read about today will be compounded around and after Thanksgiving. The day is young but so far a tweet battle between Corker and Trump is the most promising (in the US), or possibly Niger IMO.

Transiting Mercury at 11+ Scorpio today (and Jupiter at 11+ Scorpio in early December) is also square the degree where all 3 outer planets agreed to share their strategies when they ingressed the signs they now occupy. I’m saying that it is like a mutual agreement, this shared degree of 11+ Aquarius; Neptune offers up Mercury as his contribution, Uranus offers up Venus’ influence and Pluto for his part offers up the North Node + Nessus.

So today look for transiting Mercury to agitate (square) that degree shared by the 3 outer planets followed in December by Jupiter doing the same thing from the same degree, all while trine transiting Neptune.

Earlier this month trans. Mercury and Jupiter started their new cycle just as trans. Sun was about to exact an opposition to trans. Uranus, and trans Mars in Virgo was trine the US natal Pluto. Part of the DNA of the present Mercury-Jupiter cycle then is about outer planet consciousness-raising in one form or another.

Today it is trans. Mercury’s turn to push buttons that activate that process (consciousness raising), with the aid of trans. Neptune (think compassion, deception, illusion, possibly drug related or just plain lying) and then the big followup in December when trans. Jupiter squares the Aquarius degree shared by the outer planets while trine trans. Neptune.

A new initiative will see Alphabet – the parent company of Google – take charge of redeveloping a waterfront district in Toronto. Here’s why that’s troubling

Barb, I’ve been reading about John Kelly and the animosity veterans have against him for defending “Deferment Donnie”, lying, not treating the Niger widow with the proper respect (I believe neither he nor Trump attended her husband’s funeral either).
The hashtag the veterans are using for him is “Blue Falcon,” referencing a label applied in the military to those who are Buddy F*ckers”. This made me wonder if this would tie into what you wrote above about events being compounded after Thanksgiving. Kelley has Saturn at 12 Virgo, Jupiter at 12 Pisces and NN at 12 Aries. Otherwise his personal planets are in later degrees, with a stellum in Taurus.” Here’s his chart:

Then there is this in the news…

I don’t know if any of you have heard, but a shocker for me this morning was reading about John Besh, the New Orleans mega-successful restaurant owner and chef (in TX and MD in addition to NOLA), pulling a Harvey Weinstein and leaving his company, largely due to the culture of sexual harassment tolerated at his restaurants (with no mechanism for dealing with it). It was disclosed by a Times Picayune reporter’s investigation that began in February. Besh was implicated but it is unclear if it involved more than one women in his company. She said coercement was involved and he said it was a consensual relationship that ended 2 yrs. ago.
(I looked up Besh’s chart but only one planet near 11 degrees – Saturn, at 12 Libra.)

Anthony Bourdain said it was “the beginning of the end of the institutionalized Meathead culture in the restaurant business.”

http://www.nola.com/business/index.ssf/2017/10/john_besh_restaurants_fostered.html

THIS APPEARS TO BE A MAJOR MOVEMENT THAT IS GAINING TRACTION and it will expand. There must be many males in positions of power sh*tting in their pants right now. The dark side, as I see it, is that women who go along may bear some responsibility, too, but men in power will pay because of the power they have over the women in several ways, including the ability to fire them. In Besh’s case, the news story in nola.com implies that it began as consensual. I looked at Besh’s chart but only saw

http://www.nola.com/business/index.ssf/2017/10/john_besh_restaurants_fostered.html

…but only saw Saturn in Libra in 12+ degrees.

Fe: These senators speaking out only because they are not seeking re-election.

A few years ago, my husband’s elder Son and Daughter celebrated their Dad’s 80th birthday by renting a beautiful Condo for all of us in Puerto Rico.
The Island was breathtakingly beautiful and now it breaks my heart to see PR being ignored by Trump and the GOP.
We should hold “A Telethon to Save Puerto Rico!”
Yet it seems they’re just going to let it go…to hell.

‘BIG DECISION’: WILL THE US SPEND WHAT IT TAKES TO SAVE PUERTO RICO?https://whowhatwhy.org/2017/10/09/big-decision-will-us-spend-takes-save-puerto-rico/

Ja, but at least they are speaking out and feel free to do so. I believe they will do a lot of good. McCain speaking out b/c he is gravely ill and he also feels freed up to do so.

I heard that Fe; that and the GOP-led House panel launching a probe of the Obama-era uranium deal (involving Russia) qualify as a Mercury-Neptune event. And what about that guy who threw Russian flags (teeny ones) at the President in the Capitol today? That seems pretty Neptune-Mercury like.

Of course this is part of the Mercury-Jupiter (cycle) one-two punch, with Jupiter’s punch coming in December, but there is something in the chart for Jupiter’s ingress into Scorpio that I’d not picked up on until today.

It might not seem significant on it’s own, but that chart’s sextile between Chiron in Pisces and Sedna in Taurus connects to 4 ongoing cycles, each having a planet in the degree area of 25-27 Libra which would create a Yod.
1) the 1891 Neptune-Pluto conjunction had Uranus at 27 Libra;
2) the 1982 Saturn-Pluto conjunction itself took place at 27 Libra;
3) the 1988 Saturn-Uranus conjunction had the Sun at 25 Libra;
4) the 1993 Neptune-Uranus conjunction had Jupiter at 26 Libra and he was opposite Ceres in Aries!

The effect of transiting Jupiter in Scorpio goes beyond what we see in the chart, which is true of all cycle and ingress charts I’m sure, but to activate 4 long-term cycles while going about one’s own business would seem to mean that Jupiter’s brief year-long sojourn in Scorpio will have long-term world-wide effects.

That is in part because Jupiter’s ingress chart also has Uranus at 26+ Aries, the point that completes a Boomerang from the sextile in the same chart between Chiron and Sedna, added to the 4 cycles named who have some planet (or planets in the case of Saturn-Pluto) at 25-27 Libra. It will be the Uranus in the new Jupiter-in-Scorpio cycle that will be the
Boom in the Boomerang.

The emphasis on Uranus (unexpected, shocking, revolutionary, advanced technology) will probably carry us throughout the time Jupiter is in Scorpio every time a transiting planet is in the 25-27 degree of any sign I thinking; setting off the boomerang. It helps me to understand why all this insanity is taking place in the US.

Transiting Uranus squares the US natal Pluto in Capricorn and so do all those planets in the 4 cycles above that are at 25-27 Aries. US natal Pluto is being prepared for its “return” and that means we are all being prepared . . . . Transformation of epic and evolutionary proportions.

“PUERTO RICO’S HARSH REALITY”
https://whowhatwhy.org/2017/10/24/puerto-ricos-harsh-reality/

Don’t miss: “The Man who called Trump a “Moron”
Rex Tillerson has reportedly called Donald Trump a “moron.” But what epithet might apply to Rex Tillerson? For many years, Tillerson headed ExxonMobil, a company that obfuscated what it knew about climate change — to the detriment of the planet.

The November Mars-Pluto square will hit the charts of tRump, John Kelly, and Sarah Huckabee Sanders, others in his administration, and the Sibly chart’s progressed Mars.

Top spokespeople like chief of staff John Kelly and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders are constant reminders of tRump’s proven dishonesty (they could not speak for him without his approval). All but his hardcore base who will not admit to the truth (perhaps because they just can’t accept the truth of their own mistakes) will eventually call for his ouster.

An example of Kelly’s dishonesty and SHS’s logic – his proven lies about congresswoman Frederica Wilson, D-Fla., and SHS’s woowoo attempt to justify it:

Be passionate when you lie.

Citizen John Kelly has transit Saturn opposite his natal Neptune = False Bad. He is now recognized as an international liar. It was intentional as he also had transit Pluto square progressed Mars. And it was a whopper as transit Pluto squared progressed Neptune = BIG lie.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ez0xYJX6ODk

Looking at tRump’s charts for election night in 2020 I find no indication of happiness from a win or disappointment because of a loss. I do not think he will even be involved in the election. Remember – January 2020 comes before November.

Meant ” to justufy them”.

Meant “to justify them”.

Alex,

Thank you for everything you post. I can not tell you how much I appreciate it.

Angellight,

If all that has already happened hasn’t moved anyone to do anything about this mad man, I have given up hope that anything will. I am contemplating putting my hands over my ears and saying, “lalalalala” for next three years.

Patty,

I think that the citizens of Puerto Rico are going to migrate to Florida and forever change the political landscape of that state.

Bob, There seems to be a confluence of powerful aspects hitting at the time of the November 18th New Moon. The Mars-Pluto square aligning perfectly with Trump’s natal Jupiter is just one of them.

I wonder if the Nov 18th New Moon (26 Scorpio) in square to Trump’s natal Mars with a simultaneous Saturn trine (26 Sag) will be sufficient enough to activate Trump’s Mars and the Aug. 21st solar eclipse degree. With Pluto-Mars square conjoining N. Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s natal Sun, tension on the Korean peninsula could come to a boiling point.

With GWB, we set so many precedents which should never have been set — pre-emptive war, mass incarceration based on religion/nationality, torture (just to name a couple)… not to mention an AUMF that never seems to completely die.

No one raised much of a fuss when Trump installed all these Generals/Ret in high Cabinet positions. If one thinks a little about it – one could almost call this a “Coup,” IMO…

But Congress has ignored their Constitutional responsibilities since GWB, and given it, handily, to the Executive Branch. In that, we’ve allowed Congress to set the stage for “Trump at War”…

Can you see the headlines now? (sigh)

Eliseo –
“And here’s an irony. Most all of the mechanics who maintained those bombers have passed on. To my knowledge, no one has been trained to maintain those particular bombers since they were retired from service by GHW Bush in 1991.”

If that doesn’t sound like quintessential Trump, I don’t know what does!!!

I’m keeping my senses tuned in at work, hoping to hear something passed down among the students. But it’s still so early in their term, they’re more concerned about classwork than their next duty assignment.

Personally, I’m finding it harder and harder to avoid my personal cognitive dissonance inre where I work, now that Trump’s in charge. Add that to my physical disabilities, and my headstrong Aquarian nature, and I have to work every day to keep from cutting off my nose to spite my face!! Luckily, both of the Colonels in charge of our department at the moment are political kindred (for a change!).

Bob —

“A speculative thought. Knowing that the country has never changed presidents by election while it was at war, this self-centered sociopath may try to start a war as a way stop the investigation of him and his entourage.”

That’s been my fear, all along, It fits his personality and agrees with the type of actions he’s taken in the past to get out of situations.

But how far we’ve fallen, as a country, when we don’t realize we’ve been at war for 17 years straight! I see on nearly a daily basis the result of this, our longest war, on those who are fighting it. Of course, because that war was begun by Bush the younger and continued by Obama, it likely doesn’t count as war in Trump’s mind — nor to those who’ve bought into his cult.

If I were one of those disgruntled white men in Trump’s corner, I’d be mad as hell. Who do they think is going to fight that war? Trump cares so little for his “soldier toys.”

I think we need (among other things) to romanticize war. This “warrior” mythology that has taken hold secularly (as well as religiously — even in my own religious path!) needs to be countermanded by a strong dose of truth.

I, for one, say don’t thank me for my service. Work for peace and cooperation. Make a world where that “service” of killing humans, nature, and wildlife is never needed again!

Eliseo –

“I’m dawning a dark feeling that nuclear explosions would be somehow orgasmic for this man.”

In my younger days, I quickly figured out that those who boasted of sexual prowess were actually pretty dismal in bed. Nuclear explosions and killing his own citizens with need may be the only way (beyond prostitutes) he can achieve orgasm — if even then, considering his age and general healthiness.

I don’t think I have to be a fly on the wall to believe Melania doesn’t come within 10 feet of a bed close to him!

alex – the only way I can see this new “secret lives of the super rich” show being something good, is if it solidifies in the daily man and woman that these people absolutely do NOT need a 1 trillion dollar tax break, and causes them to truly get up in arms and into the streets about it!

Just my opinion… yours may vary… (smile)

Karen F —

I’ll admit I’m open to other treatments, but I’m really careful, having had bad reactions in the past. I refused the first treatment for my lupus, because of the heavy risk to my eyesight. The only other “treatment” (Lyrica) ballooned me 20 pounds in one month. Obviously, I’m not doing that again! But I only see two possibilities (talk about duality!)… keep on trying or check out of life. As much as I’m tempted in my dark times, I’m not ready to give up the beauty and learning this world offers; not quite yet. So, my activism for people like us sometimes appears in odd places and ways.

I agree with you on the “purity” judgements and groupings with labels. IME, it’s all part of the Repub brain issues of only being able to see in black and white. That’s why so many of us who don’t “fit” their duality life schemes are tossed away like we don’t exist. It’s all they can DO; to admit we exist means their ideology has holes. They can’t do that. What’s scary is there is at least close to 30% of the country who are dead-set like this.

IME, Trump doesn’t have a “constituency” as much as he has a Cult. Everything about him and his voters hits that “Cult Watch” scale of the 1970’s. I don’t think they can do more than agree with whatever he says — even those of them who are like us. I don’t know whether to say I pity them or tell ’em it serves you right!

Anybody —

Does anyone have any information (good or bad) about “Radio Abalation”?

“I, for one, say don’t thank me for my service. Work for peace and cooperation. Make a world where that “service” of killing humans, nature, and wildlife is never needed again!” Amen, sister.

Watching Lawrence O’Donnell’s show about Jeff Flake’s speech tonight in which he announced he isn’t running again. He doesn’t support Trump and AZ did. Such an amazing & powerful speech, a treasure trove of truth, integrity, high moral standards, and great lines! One newspaper said “the ice is beginning to crack.”remark: He’s the one of the few Republicans to call out the Emperor’s lack of clothes and his lack of truthfulness and ability to govern, his childish pettiness. From what I’ve read, Flake is a true fiscal conservative who served 6 House terms before he became a senator and he got rid of earmarks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ghsmNARi3QA

Here’s the written text: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/24/us/politics/jeff-flake-transcript-senate-speech.html?_r=0

And here’s his chart:
https://www.astro.com/cgi/chart.cgi?rs=3;btyp=w2gw;nhor=126

Meanwhile, between Corker, Flake, John McCain, Susan Collins, Rand Paul, Pat Toomey, Orrin Hatch Trump’s tax bill because will not pass because it increases the deficit and that isn’t very fiscally conservative!

Sorry for the editing problems as I made changes but didn’t proofread.

Barb, I guess and hope that Flake and Corker are providing a taste of the truth that will finally come — after Thanksgiving, and keep on coming! I do hope the ice is really beginning to crack.

Trump’s approval ratings are approximately 37% favourable. He’s not done yet. Simply put, there are a lot of people who are still against the establishment (however that word is defined) more than they are against Trump. No sign the establishment is about to do anything radical so far to address this deep dissatisfaction, though the recent speeches and resignations may show a crack in the armour. And no word of what Mr. Mueller has discovered, or if any word will ever come.

you assigned a personal motive to my posting…. lives of the super-rich from the guardian…. no need for that that it’s just information

slightkc — for your lupus — which I looked up and found has to do with inflammation — have you checked out what Dr Mark Hyman is doing via what is called “functional medicine”? It’s all about removing inflammation via life style changes: in nutrition, sleep, stress reduction, exercise, etc. He’s having a series of documentary type films this week on what he calls the Broken Brain… wildly hopeful and fascinating re a number of illnesses — maybe even lupus?

I’m going to add something to the list of things heard or seen yesterday that will be rehashed in early December due to Jupiter’s trine with Neptune; a repeat of some matter that was heard or seen (Mercury) yesterday due to the Mercury trine Neptune aspect. That would be the news that the dossier on Trump was in part financed by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.

“That would be the news that the dossier on Trump was in part financed by the DNC and the Clinton campaign.”

…which is something we all knew before the 2016 election, and that Fusion GPS was first hired by the Republicans — Jeb Bush, in fact, to do oppo research on Trump.

The DNC-Fusion GPS collusion accusation by the Republicans sounds a lot like grasping for straws to keep from drowning in a rushing river.

Been trying to comprehend how/why this is all coming up now. It began with Weinstein…yet, now it’s growing!

Is there some Male/Female Astrological interaction taking place at this time?

It brings up so many shocking memories from my youth, the way bosses would treat us young women.
(There was no protection for us girls then)
But now it’s all coming to a head.
There must be some astrological explanation.

Here’s O’Reilly…NOW he’s mad at GOD!
“You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I’m mad at him,” O’Reilly said on the latest episode of his web series, “No Spin News.” “I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn’t happen. I can’t explain it to you. Yeah, I’m mad at him.”

http://money.cnn.com/2017/10/23/media/bill-oreilly-misconduct-allegations/index.html
And now O’Reilly is saying it’s all a Liberal effort.

Hopefully NYT will allow this for all to hear:

Here is an answer to your question, Patty.

Thanks to kiwi for showing me this site.

“You know, am I mad at God? Yeah, I’m mad at him,” O’Reilly said on the latest episode of his web series, “No Spin News.” “I wish I had more protection. I wish this stuff didn’t happen. I can’t explain it to you. Yeah, I’m mad at him.”

Bill O’Reilly:

I want to see you face-to-face with the people of Puerto Rico to see who truly deserves being mad with God.

Regarding Raye Robertson’s Diary of a Mundane Astrologer blog that Ja posted —

What scares me is that Bannon, fueled by the Mercer’s, engineered a Trump win, some way, some how. Will his candidates with their “half-baked, spurious nationalism” win elections and take over the Republican Party using the meme of America first? — because that also fits into the destruction leading to rebirth image. Bannon has funding and he’s a fanatic when it comes to winning.

And, Jupiter will be in Sag next year, his sun sign, I believe, and a sign that embraces fanaticism.

By next year, I meant the year that begins after it goes through Scorpio, as of late 2018.

Regarding O’Reilly being mad at God: If there were a god she’d be pissed with him. And, that is why she allowed for his complete exposure as a sexual predator.

In the midst of all that’s so depressing, the latest from Jessica Murray, a glimmer of hope: http://mothersky.com/2017/10/side-part-three/

Bob,

This country HAS changed presidents by election during wartime. Richard Nixon in 1968. The country refused to stick with the Democrats as Hubert Humphrey was pledged to continue LBJ’s war policy in Vietnam. Nixon had a Secret Plan to End the War, which oddly enough took more than four years to effect.

We also changed from a Democratic President to a Republican one in the middle of the Korean War. So if Trump is actually under the impression that we won’t change Presidents if he declares war, he doesn’t know his history very well.

And even pointing out that both those times the incumbent wasn’t running again doesn’t matter. It’s the switch of political parties that does.

The Trump era feels like the Cuban Missile Crisis. Only, the CMC lasted two weeks; we have to deal with this emotionally and intellectually every day for the last 10 months + however long this will last. I think it unlikely we’ll connect the dots with a rise in the number of strokes and heart attacks, though I suspect a correlation.

Fees To Enter Popular National Parks Would Skyrocket Under Interior Department Plan

The proposed rates would significantly increase the costs to enter the parks during their busiest months. Entry at these parks currently costs $25 or $30 per vehicle, no matter the season. Under the new rates, entrance would cost $75 per vehicle during a five-month peak season.

Half the world away, Scott Brown makes an ass of himself again

No, alex… and I apologize if it came across that way to you. Most assuredly NOT meant that way!

Eliseo – for the first time in my life I’m on BP medicine. All my doc had to do was say the word “Trump” and she could measure the rise right there on the table with me. One thing I’ve been told my docs is that I’m not the only one…

fierywoman – Yes, I’ve read some of Dr.Hyman’s work. I’d already instituted a lot of his recommendations before even reading him. I also do herbs for inflammation to augment the pharma.

While inflammation is one symptom of Lupus (as well as in other autoimmunes), it’s primarily your autoimmune system turning against your own body. I lost one girlfriend to it many years ago; and, from the look of my coworker today, I’m about ready to lose another to it. Both had the same thing I have – systemic lupus. The immune system attacks your own body organs. I’ve always been overweight… but since coming down with this disease, I’ve lost 80+ pounds (40 in just 2 months), and I’m still losing even tho I’m not “dieting.” Now, yay… I finally got down to a size 8/10, but this ain’t the way I’d planned it!

The astrology says yes or at least a major change in control and platform of the Republican party.

Recently (September 26 through September 30) transit Pluto stationed opposite the GOP chart precessed Sun. GOP Sun was at 108°05′, Pluto stationed at 288°11. Coming up on November 4 transit Saturn will be conjunct Republican party progressed Sun. It will be on November 26 for the progressed precession corrected Sun.

Perhaps the sexual predator’s knowledge of president’s in times of war only covers the 2 declared world wars.

re: immune system attacking self

a) camomile oil (it slows down immune system attacking itself; it is also harsh on kidneys; I put a few drops on my skin for transdermal delivery of dose)

https://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/essential-oils/camomile-essential-oil.html

b) rice bran oil ( it has stabilizing effect which calms down immune system attacking self; I use it on skin as transdermal delivery of dose)

c) sesame oil: use cold pressed organic uncooked sesame oil in a smoothy or something like that ( it’s used for slow growth in babies to increase their weight) for adults it slows down ‘wasting’ and will cause weight gain

Two pieces of exceptionally bad news today:

(A) Senate vote w/Mr. Pence breaking the tie, ending the provision enabling consumers to sue the big banks, i.e. stripping Dodd-Frank of one of its key provisions.

(B) Collapse of the Senate Judiciary Committee Investigation of DJT, etc. Now there will be no unified report but two reports, one from Dems, one from R’s.

Correction: The Senate Judiciary Committee Investigation is not specifically of DJT, but of Russian interference and possible collusion in the 2016 election.

Also, 76 suspected cases of Leptospirosis in Puerto Rico. The pitiful federal response to the suffering in Puerto Rico rolls on as slowly as ever.

Never in my lifetime have I seen so much bad news every day, day after day, after day, after day.

Fe, its pathetic to watch IQ45 talk hmself up, saying he’s intelligent when the opposite is true. Its embarrassing and the nation continues to suffers from it. Everyday is grueling to watch this clown show.
Now all the news outlets make sure there is a segment discounting his claims. Now the tired Dossier, AGAIN! CLINTON e-mails, AGAIN. They are the recycled, tired needless accusations, but Devin Nunes, and the rest are diminished to laughing stock status. They truly live in a bubble.
Already a million signatures are up for IQ45’s impeachment. The people are taking matters and mobilizing. It is long overdue.

It seems VP Pence is keeping a very low profile. I wonder if someone or somebody told him not to champion Trump so much b/c Impeachment Papers are soon to be drawn up.

Hi,

I recently got back to using my rebounding trampoline, and I love it. Highly recommend it to anyone with an autoimmune disease because it’s great for your lymphatic system, which is what cleans out your body of any sort of debris and toxins. A strong lymphatic system will help your bring your body back into balance, which is what you need to help your body help itself.

It’s also helpful with Trump stress. 🙂

I used cheap trampolines for years, and you can pick one up for $40 or so. That an your iPad for some exercise music, and you should be great. And if you fall in love with it and are ready to upgrade your trampoline, I highly recommend Needak rebounders.

Start very slowly. You’ll find it takes a lot of ankle strength, like skiing or rollerblading, and you need to build that up slowly. You don’t have to jump high at all to get the benefits to your lymphatic system.

And I find it’s just fun. Remember when you were a kid and you loved bouncing? It’s kind of like that. Also great for your balance and our core.

Some of Marjorie Orr’s piece on Trump last week show possible triggers, despite the fact that Saturn is moving off from transiting his Sun and Moon. “2nd November to December 1st tr Uranus is square his Venus in Cancer, which will make him more emotionally impulsive than usual, intolerant of and kicking against restrictions… In December/January 2018 tr Uranus will be whipping up a storm as it crashes into his Sun/Mars, Mercury/Pluto and Venus/Saturn midpoints – 1) impulsive, over-excited, overtaxing strength (military call-up?); 2) fanatical, great mental strain; 3) emotional stress, acute loneliness.”

Ja, It couldn’t happen to a better person than Steve Bannon. Being thwarted in his plans and falling out with Mercer and Trump…..in his own way, Bannon is a narcissistic megalomaniac with his big ideas and goals. He actually thinks he can succeed in shaping the Republican Party and the Republic to his ideas (as he did with “lost” young video gamers online in a former business). He builds on discontent and dissatisfaction.

Les, Thank you for Mothersky. Very thought provoking.

Alex, Do you remember the name of a pain remedy you recommended to us a few years ago? It’s something like a body wrap or a tent that you put around yourself. At the time, I found it on Amazon. I have a friend who has a painful form of arthritis for which her doctor put her on Prednisone for a number of months (maybe 9) telling her that it would control it, and lessen the pain. She was faithful to the course of treatment but all that happened was that she gained weight, she tells me.

Thank you,
Sharon

Angelite,

You’re welcome. Hope you try it.

Hi,

I’ve had sore hands and wrist for decades, from spending too much time at the computer keyboard. I’ve tried a lot of different things that didn’t work for that pain and inflammation. But about two months ago, I tried marijuana extract cream and have found it to be a great pain reliever and excellent for helping with inflammation.

The process of creating it takes out The part of marijuana that makes you high, which I never liked because it just made my head spin, and leaves behind the other part as an oil that you can mix with some other ingredients to make a cream.

I’ve been telling everyone who has pain to try it. And another indication that it works well, is that in states that have legalized marijuana, use of prescription pain medications has dropped dramatically.

Ja, Thank you so much for your reply and link.
It’s amazing seeing Astrology in action with current planetary configurations highlight/activate specific issues.

Albert Einstein’s ‘Theory of Happiness’ Fetches $1.56 Million!

In 1922, Einstein was at the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo, where he was on a lecture tour, and had recently learned that he had won the Nobel Prize. When a bellboy delivered a message to the physicist, he fished in his pocket for some change to tip him and came up empty. Instead, Einstein offered a tip in the form of his theory on how to have a happy life.

“A calm and modest life brings more happiness than the pursuit of success combined with constant restlessness,” he wrote in German on a piece of hotel stationery.

Teresa, What if medical marijuana isn’t legal in my state?

Teressa,

I too have found that marijauna cream/salve works. I also use an oil that I mix: equal parts of castor/olive/peanut oils… the two things together work wonders for joint and any kind of skin pain.

Teresa, I spent my life as a professional violist and took VERY good care of my hands, arms and back. But one day I suddenly had a right wrist pain that was so bad it was beyond crying — I could barely gasp for breath, the pain was so strong. I remembered reading about red pepper … so I mixed up some strong red pepper in whatever oil was handy and put the red pepper oil around my wrist, covered it with a dishcloth (very messy). I swear to God, the pain went away in like 15 minutes and has never come back.
BTW, for charley-horse type night cramps in my feet, I use magnesium oil where the pain is — takes away the pain in about 10 minutes.
I wish you a pain-free life!

Fierywoman,

That’s one thing I’ve never tried, but I will. (Former clarinetist here, but only in middle and high school.)

Henry,

I use essential oils, too, and they’ve helped me of years. But I’m finding better pain relief from the marijuana cream.

Sharon K,

(whispering … it’s not legal in my state, either.)

Sharon

it is infrared sauna (amazon) if diabetic or high blood pressure not recommeended/ok to use…. otherwise it is radiant heat/ penetrating warmth that relaxes the muscles which cramp/tension from body pain or bone pain…. 10 minutes automatic shut off….

Teresa, I live in NYC. Do you know where I could find the marijuana salve/cream, without having to make it myself?

Thanks, Alex!

Well, I googled and you CAN buy hemp seed oil which is also used for pain. I don’t know how it compares.

fierywoman, are you referring to cayenne pepper?

Hi,

I have a family member who used to live in a state where it was legal and got a recipe from someone there. And you can buy an oil extract, but I believe if you buy it in a state where it’s not legal, you’re not getting the same active ingredient you would in states where it is legal.

I think you’re stuck buying it illegally, like from a dealer, if the even handle the creams, if it’s still not legal in your state.

Also, i’ve used far infrared lamps for my hands, too. You can buy them at Amazon or massage therapy supply places. They feel great to me.

Please tell me that the Repubs will not be able to pass this insane tax “reform” plan. Or is this the Saturn in Cap opposite US sun.
Some days….I just can’t look at the news or it will destroy my good heart. And I do believe in the power of good hearts.

(((Ripley))) – Me, too

Whenever I was in a long-term bad mood, my mother used to tell me that I needed to put more goodness into me….and it worked, of course!

Sharon K, great advice from your mother. That advice is particular useful to me now.

Alex, thanks. I’ll try Amazon.

Ripley, I too am hoping for divine intervention in stopping the insane tax reform.

I don’t know if anyone around here has seen this video. Its a card reader from Colombia, she lives in Los Angeles and she is quite famous, she has predicted various events like the death of a famous mexican singer called Juan Gabriel, where she predicted the cause of death and the month when he died, she predicted the Mexico earthquake within a few days of the actual date.

The thing is that she has being predicting for some time now that Donald Trump will be assasinated within the first two years of his presidency, and in his latest interview she said that is within the next 12 months, that he will be shot by an american man, around 34 years of age, that he will die from his wounds during surgery.

She also has been predicting that there will be a world war,that nuclear weapons will be used, and that some cities in the US will be hit, she said that Russia will win the war.

So, first things first,the eclipse of august 21st. fell on Donald Trump’s ascendant and very close to his Mars, does anyone sees a possible assassination attempt when the eclipse is activated,for instance around the November 18th new moon that will be at 26.30 of scorpio, squaring the eclipse by 2 degrees, also transit Pluto will be squaring his natal Jupiter and transit Mars will be conjunct his natal Jupiter activating the Pluto square on that day and Jupiter being the ancient ruler of Pisces that rules his 8th house, could we be looking at something like that, or it’s just my imagination, also transit Pluto will be quincunx his natal Uranus and transit Mars will be making a trine to it, could it be that he survives by chance, and also note that transit Uranus is Squaring his natal Venus.

Here is the video.

Here she is saying that there will be a world war.

The budget resolution adopted by the US Senate last week, and by the House of Representatives on Thursday, is not a law. It cannot be signed or vetoed by the president, and the policies it recommends are just that — recommendations.

But it still matters. The budget resolution changes the rules for passing certain legislation, especially in the Senate, and this resolution in particular will allow Republicans to pass $1.5 trillion in tax cuts (or more, depending on how they choose to do the math) over 10 years with only 51 votes. […]

The agenda the resolution outlines is radical. The federal welfare state would be rolled back in just about every dimension, with health care programs particularly affected. All non-Medicare health programs would see a cut of $1.3 trillion, or nearly 30 percent, by 2027, according to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities.

Medicare would be cut too, to the tune of $473 billion. There is $1 trillion over 10 years in mystery cuts to mandatory programs, cuts that would in practice almost certainly hurt programs for the poor.

Movie Review: The Brainwashing of My Dad

Also note that on that day, on his progressed chart, transit Pluto will be squaring his progressed Venus and transit Mars also will be conjunct progressed Venus that rules his progressed 8th house of death.

Also Mars rules his progressed 6th house of health.

Transit Uranus is opposite his progressed Jupiter and his progressed ascendant possibly indicating something big and unexpected.

I don’t know where I have read this, I have it in my notes, but it said that to find the time of death you need to see the 4th house also, because The 4th house describes the end of a matter and as death is the end of physical life on earth, the 4th house must be activated.

So, when looking at the natal chart of Donald Trump, we find that it’s ruled by Pluto, and being transit Pluto square his Jupiter on that new moon of November 18th, we can presume that is being activated, but looking more carefully, we find that natal Pluto is at 10.03 of Leo in the 12th house which rules hospitals, so we can assume that he will die in a hospital, but also note that transit Neptune, which naturally rules the 12th house is quincunx his natal Pluto, and also that transit Jupiter will be squaring natal Pluto from the 3rd house of short travels in the following days after the new moon of November 18th, we could speculate that he will be taken to a hospital in a short trip after some incident.

Squallo, I have not looked at the video link you posted, but a word on predictions of death, psychically or otherwise. Death is not something that most responsible psychics or astrologers will outright predict. If they do so, I’d bet that they are attention seekers who conveniently disappear or deny when they turn out to be wrong. We should not buy into this kind of scare-mongering (or wish fulfilment re. DJT either!).

If a person is religious, he/she would believe that it is nobody’s business but God’s as to when it is time for a person to die. People with faith would be offended, I believe, as the idea is that every life has value (even DJT).

Setting religion aside, predicting death, even by health professionals who see it all the time at the sickbed, is a dumbfounding and precarious business. Death is not actually very “predictable” unless it happens to be the very moment of it. Bodies and minds do some amazing things to keep alive and what cosmic forces may be involved are not simple either. In many ways, death is a process, not an event.

The astrological signs for death are so numerous, complex and varied that trying to predict an exact time of death is virtually meaningless, as any astrologer who examines charts after the event will verify. Not saying there are not indications, but nothing in a chart makes it an accurate prediction because so many factors are in play. And if it can’t be an accurate, verifiable prediction, then it’s no prediction at all.

Predicting a death is a serious matter and no ethical astrologer should be make such predictions – for one thing, it destroys the astrologer’s (or card reader’s) reputation to turn out wrong. Oops, just happened to pick the wrong date or manner of death? Not professional.

What a situation we are in?!?!
A sociopathic president with narcissistic personality disorder who is probably guilty of treason and may well get us into WWIII
AND
a vice president who is equally crazy but far more competent. One of many examples: Mike Pence maintains smoking does not causes cancer. He believes our “big brother” government puts limitations on the sale of cigarettes and requires the printed warnings in order to throttle free enterprise.

There are so, so many issues in which the man is way out nuts. Were he to become president, (paraphrasing Stan Schatt from his book, Mike Pence: A Clear & Present Danger,) Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale would seem more like a documentary than like a novel.

Minor correction

“when looking at the natal chart of Donald Trump, we find that his 4th house it’s ruled by Pluto”

Beowulfie

I understand your point about the innumerable possibilities in life making it almost impossible for anyone to actually predict death.

As for the ethics involved, I believe that it is more related to our own fear of death that leads us to relegate that subject as taboo, something forbiden or unethical, death is process, but its also an event, one can not only look for pleasant moments in life through astrology wanting to understand the order of things if we do not dare to observe and analyze the difficult situations, it is like wanting to understand the human being only by analyzing their thoughts and emotions without wanting to see the dark side of his instincts, because morally or ethically seems perverse or forbidden.

Beowulfie

Also note that Jupiter is currently traveling through Scorpio leading us to see the obscure and hidden side of life that we don’t want to see, jeje.

Hi Squallo,

Re: Nov. 18th/ Possible Trump assassination

I couldn’t decipher what was being said in those two Deseret Tavares youtube links you submitted since it is entirely in spanish.

Nevertheless, in addition to the astrological aspects you enumerated, it’s interesting to note Trump’s progressed Jupiter/ progressed ascendant conjunction at 24/25 Aries. At the time of the Nov 18th New Moon tr. Uranus is right on that degree in trine to tr. Saturn (26 Sag). That suggests to me a major transition of some sort.

Astrologer Alice Portman in an article entitled “Determining Death from a Horoscope” points to Princess Diana’s natal Jupiter/ Ascendant conjunction. At the time of death tr. Uranus had just made a conjunction to those degrees. See article: http://aliceportman.com/determining-death-from-a-horoscope/

Amazingly, these are the same exact aspects prevalent in Trumps chart at the time of the November 18th new moon (tr. Uranus conjunct the progressed Jupiter/Ascendant degree). In astrological terms, Jupiter sometimes denotes transition. The ascendant as Alice Portman explains symbolizes the physical body. And Uranus – a sudden unexpected event. When all three converge together, it could precipitate an ending.

My post in moderation AGAIN.

You are right, forgot to notice that tr Saturn will be trine tr Uranus at the new moon, but tr Uranus will be opposite his progressed ascendant/Jupiter conjunction, I don’t know if it could be as powerful as a conjunction, but the thing is that something shurley is being marked on that days, we could only speculate as to what it is, although it could also be as simple as a transition in his life.

Jerry

It could be as simple as a transition in his life, but tr mars/pluto square afflicting natal Jupiter and progressed Venus doesn’t sound simple, jaja

Bob, thanks for all your work on the Nov. 19 astrology and the incredible timing of tran. Mars in Libra conjunct the prog. US retrograde Mars and Trump’s natal Jupiter, all at 17+ degrees, and all square transiting Pluto at 17+ Capricorn.

With that extraordinary event the accompanying sextile between trans. Mercury in Sagittarius and trans. Mars (+ Trump natal Jupiter + US prog. Mars) in Libra (exact on Nov. 17) will be forming a Yod with the US natal Vesta (19+ Taurus).

When US Vesta had her “return” (trans. Vesta conjunct US Vesta) in April, 2016, she was also conjunct trans Mercury at 22+ Taurus. That is the degree where the present cycle between Jupiter and Saturn began in 2000. This coming moment in time then, when trans. Mars meets US prog. Mars and the Trump natal Jupiter, all square trans. Pluto . . . . .

. . . Will activate the cycle between Jupiter and Saturn, as well as the present cycle of the US Vesta return.

Unfinished business re: the Saturn-Jupiter cycle then will be a by product of this Mars-square-Pluto event. By osmosis, energies packed within that 20 year cycle, a cycle associated with the patterns of development in societies and their governments, will have world-wide effects. Primary among them would be the square between the Saturn-Jupiter conjunction in Taurus itself and Uranus in Aquarius. It might have to do with technology breaches.

As for the US Vesta at the apex of that Yod she will complete with trans Mercury and Mars, she will also be trine transiting Pluto, meaning she too participates in the transformative process. In financial astrology Vesta symbolizes investments. It sounds like this day, Nov. 19, 2017, might also affect the stock market; a kind of trickle-down effect from the connections between the Saturn-Jupiter cycle, the US Vesta, and the trans. Square between Pluto and Mars (+ Trump’s Jupiter and US prog. Mars).

It should also be noted that the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in 2000, and and the Mercury in the US Vesta Return, both at 22+ Taurus, are exactly trine the US natal Neptune at 22+ Virgo. If we overlook that fact we may never understand the results of the Mars-square-Pluto aspect in November. It is the sleight-of-hand that Neptune is so famous for that makes so many wonder just how some things come to pass when they defy all logic!

Squallo, thanks for your comments & one more from me re. your note that “one can not only look for pleasant moments in life through astrology wanting to understand the order of things if we do not dare to observe and analyze the difficult situations”.

I am not suggesting that one should only look at ‘nice’ stuff and not look at the difficult situations in life. What I am saying is that it is unethical to speculate on a time of death for a living person. It’s ok to look at the overall ‘conditions’ in play at a given time, but predicting death is not ok. I don’t believe many astrologers or psychics are eager to go there for many reasons, some of which I outlined in my post above.

When a prediction is made it casts a shadow on those who hear it as well as the person(s) who are the subject of it. When a prediction turns out wrong, it causes another disruption, especially discrediting the prognosticator, but potentially causing disruption in the life of the subject too. Like a psychiatrist telling somebody incorrectly that they are schizophrenic and then later saying, sorry, I made a mistake.

Which is why oracles in general, Delphic or otherwise, only dare to do it at risk to themselves. (Old sayings say this in many ways: don’t paint devils on the wall, or they may come to stay; or beware of what you wish for, etc.).

In astrology, to get anywhere near an accurate prediction for anything usually takes a huge effort, and if it is done, it should come with a full explanation, such as the link you posted to Alice Portman’s analysis of Princess Diana’s death. Casual analysis doesn’t cut it.

Also, Alice P. didn’t do hers before Diana died, she did it afterwards. Her analysis makes a strong case for a serious event to happen in Diana’s life, but even so, it can’t give that result with certainty without Alice KNOWING the fact of Diana’s death after it happened. Nobody beforehand could have known what moment in Diana’s lifetime they should be looking at to pinpoint her death (in the future).

Prediction is precarious and a lot of work. Only hindsight is 20/20. Astrology works for analyzing conditions at a given time – for precise predictions of specific events, like death, not so much. Predictions of specific events are speculation at one level or other (or worse, fake news).

In any case, I am convinced it is unwise (or illegal?) to speculate publicaly on the death of a living president. Might make for a lot of explaining if it were to happen in these days of constant monitoring by security services. Not my cup of tea – not at all.

Teresa HIll, yes, I plan to buy one soon.

Hemp or Medical Marijuanna can be found at Penn Herb in Philadelphia,Pa. They have top of the line products.

Penetrex Pain Relief Cream at Amazon has excellent reviews “This item: Pain Relief Therapy [2 Oz] :: Breakthrough (Pat. Pend.) for Arthritis, Back Pain, Tennis Elbow, Fibromyalgia, Sciatica, Plantar Fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel, Sore Muscles, Joints & Chronic Pain This item: Pain Relief Therapy [2 Oz] :: Breakthrough (Pat. Pend.) for Arthritis, Back Pain, Tennis Elbow, Fibromyalgia, Sciatica, Plantar Fasciitis, Carpal Tunnel, Sore Muscles, Joints & Chronic Pain”

OK, here come my philosophizing…

I just want to point out that maybe astrologers do not predict death because it is just about impossible to predict anything with complete certainty, let alone death. However, it is interesting to find correlations and aspects (and metaphysical predictions) that are indicative and predictive of certain events, which is why astrology is such a fascinating system.

Therefore, since they might be wrong, predicting something and implying certainty (which is unlike what Nancy and many others here do instead, which is choosing their words carefully) and have it not turn out could definitely be a downer for someone’s professional reputation.

I also see the ethical questions involved with telling someone something is going to happen before it happens – whether it turns out one is right or wrong. This is why many don’t want to know their genome or have anyone else, like a health insurance company or future employer, know it — because the genetic propensity may not be expressed but it will influence how everyone thinks about it or sees the person, and that in itself could/will influence the outcome.

All that said, I sure hope that Colombian lady is wrong about a world war and Russia winning!!! As far as Donald Trump, his karma is his karma — it is what it is.

I like to think that everything is in the hands of fate, destiny, karma, Spirit, the Creative Power to an extent but we don’t know if that is true or to what extent. Many believe that individual will CAN affect outcomes, and agree that the propensity for a certain outcome can be magnified as greater numbers of individuals focus on it, but — we are back to the point that we just will never know for sure until it has manifested.

This goes around and around in my mind regularly as I guess it does for many of you. I apologize for taking up bandwidth for probably stating the obvious.

Angelight, my friend (the one I was asking about the portable sauna tent for) uses Penetrex and confirms that it works/helps.

Beowulfie, I was formulating my comment and posting it before I read what you wrote. We are on the same page and thanks for stating it so well.

Sharon K, yep, agreed, & not so obvious either. One must take care to avoid one’s own and others’ mind traps. Also, Jerry – thanks for posting the Alice Portman link which I didn’t credit you for. It added a lot to the discussion with Squallo, which is a dynamite topic indeed.

For some time now, I had been interpreting the above aspects mentioned as some form of Trump aggression (North Korea comes to mind). You know, a Wag The Dog kind of scenario. The latest developments in the Mueller investigation could make that a reality……

Mueller Reportedly Files First Charges In Russia Probe. Key Trump Allies Call On Mueller To Resign.
Buckle up.

Think Progress
October

Special prosecutor Robert Mueller, who has been investigating potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia, has filed his first charges, according to CNN. The charges, reportedly approved by a grand jury on Friday, remain under seal.

Who has been charged and the nature of the charges remain unknown. CNN reported that anyone charged could “be taken into custody as soon as Monday.”

The news comes as Republicans ratchet up efforts to undermine and distract from Mueller’s probe. Even as CNN broke the news of Mueller’s charges, Fox News was pushing the idea that the special prosecutor was “under pressure to resign.”

Louise Mensch is reporting that it’s on Trump himself and it can’t be activated until he’s impeached. However, she isn’t generally right although she’s in the ballpark. More likely it’s Manefort, Flynn, Carter Page…one of those.

Monday October 30 – Wednesday November 1

Indictments in the Mueller investigation are expected to be announced during this time frame.

It’s important to note Mueller’s natal Saturn at 5 ’59 Cancer is in square to Trump’s natal Neptune at 5 ’50 Libra in his 2nd house of money.

In quick successive order, Oct. 30th has tr. Mercury at 20 Scorpio in close t square to the tr. nodes (21 ’05 Leo-Aq) forming harsh semi-square angles to those Trump and Mueller natal degrees mentioned. The pressure mounts considerably with Mars getting into the act in the early morning hours of Nov. 1st. Tr. Mars at 5 ’59 Libra exactly semi-squares tr. Nodes at 20 ’59 Leo-Aq in precise square to Mueller’s Saturn and Trump’s Neptune. This suggests to me Mueller might be perceived as drawing too close to Trump’s inner circle and Trump could try to obfuscate. This is already happening with renewed Republican calls to shut down the Mueller investigation…..

Mueller Facing New Republican Pressure To Resign In Russia Probe

Fox News
Oct. 28, 2017

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is facing a fresh round of calls from conservative critics for his resignation from the Russia collusion probe, amid revelations that have called into question the FBI’s own actions and potentially Mueller’s independence.

This week’s bombshell that a controversial anti-Trump dossier was funded by the Democratic National Committee and Clinton campaign has Republicans asking to what extent the FBI – which received some of the findings and briefly agreed to pay the same researcher to gather intelligence on Trump and Russia – used the politically connected material.

Hill investigators also are looking into a Russian firm’s uranium deal that was approved by the Obama administration in 2010 despite reports that the FBI – then led by Mueller – had evidence of bribery involving a subsidiary of that firm.

Hi Sharon,

Re: Louise Mensch’s allegation

Snopes reports that the story is unsubstantiated and inconclusive……

Has a ‘Sealed Indictment’ Been Issued Against President Trump?

The sourcing of a story reporting a sealed indictment has been issued against the president is too vague to corroborate.

alex – thanks the for the info! I knew about the chamomile, but had stayed away due to what I’d read inre kidneys.

Hadn’t heard of the rice bran oil, tho!

Bob, Sqallo, et.al., perhaps a Trump decision to pre-emptively strike North Korea (wag the dog) causes someone close to deployment of same to make sure he can’t? ‘Specially since we arrest(s) early next week due to Mueller’s investigation.

I say this only half jokingly.

BTW… I think one of the first indictments will be against Flynn. Woolsey left the transition team too quickly and quietly, IME.

Angellight – thanks for the info. Will definitely check out this powder. Do you have a particular site that you prefer over others for info? I’m interested for me, of course… but even more so for my coworker; she’s in so much worse shape than I am.

Teresa Hill – I’m intrigued by your rebounding trampoline. I used to love to work on it when I was in high school gymnastics. Aquarians are notorious for bad ankles, and I’m no exception, so I’ll remember your caution. Wonder if it would be too jarring on the back? I have several pieces of titanium in my back; hasn’t stopped the pain, just braced and reinforced some broken areas. Jumping on floor/ground is out of question; do you think I could get away with gentle jumps on this?

I’m for anything that can make you feel like a kid again! LOL

fierywoman, I second your recommendation for red pepper oil/cream! I’ve used it for many years. Just one caveat to anyone trying it – if you’re like me and you eat a LOT of spicy foods (TexMex, Thai, etc), be very careful. I put some capsacin on back once and thought I was going to die from the fire on/in my back! I also found it not so fun when a hot flash you would kick in, as well. Go slow with the amount to see if you have any ensuing heat issues. My experience has been more cream based, thank oil, tho… not sure if the medium would make a difference.

BTW… just in fun… I love this recommendation from you, fireywoman, with reference to your nom de plume. Very appropriate! LOL

The Firing of James Comey And That Powerful Saturn-Uranus-Mars Grand Trine

May 9th, 2017

News of Trump’s firing of FBI director James Comey hit the airwaves around 5:40 pm on this day – May 9th. Interestingly, the aspects had tr. Mercury within 9 minutes orb of waxing conjunction to tr. Uranus (25 ’54 Aries) in trine to tr. Saturn (26 ’53 Sag) and in greater Grand Trine to James Comey’s natal Uranus (25 ’43 Leo) and Trump’s natal Mars (26 ’46 Leo).

We have a very similar situation coming up with the next Saturn-Uranus trine on November 11th.

Here’s the chart set for Nov 11th 4:40 am EST:

https://tinyurl.com/ycfvw948

The exact Saturn-Uranus trine at 25 ’37 Aries-Sag forms a Grand Trine to Robert Mueller’s natal Venus – 26 ’26 Leo and Donald Trump’s natal Mars – 26 ’46 Leo. Tr. Uranus will be in close t square to Mueller’s nodes (26 ’33 Cancer-Capr.) at this juncture.

Here’s one astrologer’s take on the events of May 9th…..

When “Good’ Aspects Happened to “Bad” Planets

May 13, 2017

Right now, in the horoscope of Donald Trump transiting Saturn and Uranus are forming a Grand Trine with his Mars in Leo. A Grand Trine is a linking of three planets with 120 degree aspects so that they form a large triangle across the horoscope. It’s supposed to be one of the most positive indicators in astrology, but there are exceptions.

In Trump’s case we have disruptive Uranus combined with authoritative Saturn and combative Mars. The connotations of these planets is by no means always negative, but all together they can spell trouble. It’s like you threw a party and invited only your three most dysfunctional friends. At some point the onion dip is bound the hit the fan.

…….Just a few days ago, things seemed to be going great for Donald Trump. The House had passed a health care bill that could possible replace Obamacare. The bill still faces a big hurdle in the Senate, but that didn’t stop Trump and his troupe from celebrating. And then he decided to fire Jim Comey.

The firing of Comey seems to have become Trump’s archetypical “tar-baby”. The harder he lashes out at his former F.B.I. chief the more stuck he becomes. Now there are calls for a special prosecutor, and any person Trump appoints to replace Comey is bound to get relentless scrutiny. Many people consider the firing tantamount to a signed confession of wrong doing on Trump’s part. Others call it the actions of a petulant child.

It makes me happy to see the helpful exchanges between posters.

One of my unique charts with the USA August 21 total solar eclipse and the sexual predator’s natal chart around it, for the announcement of sealed indictments, all located to the White House. Timed to CNN announcement.

Not shown: Predator’s natal Mars at 329°26′ on the IC and Sibly Moon at 330°02′ on the MC.

PS Two critical astrological factors I failed to mention in my previous post which could serve as a catalyst….

In the chart set for Nov 11th (the time of the exact Saturn-Uranus trine), tr. Moon is right at 26 Leo, in effect conjoining Trump’s natal Mars and the August 21st solar eclipse degree (26 /28 Leo) forming a perfect trine to Saturn and Uranus. Tr. Mars at 12 Libra is in close semi-square to the 26/28 Leo degree. The synchronization is astonishing.

The Magic of 11/11…..

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ss3B1wsXqyE

Terrific discussions! And provoking. My 2 cents is that prognosticating someone’s death fails to consider how the individual may benefit from an especially difficult time. Each of us experience them, and each of us has the propensity to choose how we will respond to those challenges, how we could grow from them (and often do) into greater awareness, say greater compassion.

Although it’s difficult to say this, I can in glimpses only (right now) have compassion for Trump and those like him whose world ends and begins with extreme narcissism. To me it indicates, what we used to call, a nutcase. I have to admit that it’s difficult to hold this compassion for any length of time. Shows how much work I have to do!

Underneath narcissism is a person trying to measure up. Trump (and maybe it’s the Regulus or Mars rising in Leo in the 1st house) valiantly tries to measure up and act like he knows what he’s doing in whatever role he undertakes. In same cases, his shrewdness has served him. It is so obvious that he’s a fish out of water and like Corker said, he will never really rise to the occasion or make the pivot (as Flake said). The clips of children in the Oval Office for a Halloween thing showed him rambling about the beautiful children, and how the media is against him. I think George W. Bush also had mars in Leo but not sure if it was rising. Both he and Trump had powerful fathers and they were trying to follow the role model. Sad, but also very dangerous in their ignorance. Whether or not one has compassion for him, he must be removed, but Trump being removed, whether through democratic means or death, will not remove our troubles (although it may remove the threat of a war, for now). Pence is an Evangelist and he believes in the end times, and the Republicans have an antiquated philosophy that is also destructive in its rigidity.

Read somewhere this morning that the Puerto Ricans flocking to FL can change the voting mix. Maybe they will not be as blind as some of the Cubans who vote their religion and their hatred of communism.

LG,
RE: “but I’d rather 45 be removed according to our laws. That will be the ultimate strength of democracy.”

AMEN! Hopefully, lawful removal would restore confidence in the United States from the world community.

Also, an assassination would be traumatic for the nation and the world. Considering the level of paranoia in our culture and the penchant for conspiracy theories, it could quite conceivably spark serious civil unrest and possibly civil war.

My hope is for simultaneous or near simultaneous impeachment and conviction of DJT and Mr. P.
Mr. P. as president would be as dangerous as Mr. T, albeit in other ways. He would be especially dangerous for the women and girls in our nation. I seriously doubt he is innocent, or was unaware of the collusion with Russia. Same is true for many other high ranking Republicans in office. Considering how profoundly dangerous our VP is, removing DJT from office would of itself be insufficient.

SlightKC,

You sound perfect for a rebounder. I adored getting to jump on the trampoline in school. Nothing better.

The mini tramp is something you can use to very gently bounce. Actually, more of a swaying up and down on it without your feet leaving the surface. You still get the advantage to your lymphatic system, and you can slowly work your way up to more of a bounce, if you want to.

And usually, exercise is the best thing you can do for a bad back, so I’d definitely try it. Rebounding is great for strengthening your core, so it should help strengthen your back muscles, too.

Don’t be discouraged if you can only do 3-5 minutes the first time you try it. It takes time to get your balance and feel comfortable there, and also, those ankles will likely give out in that amount of time. You’ll find they quickly build up strength for you. And have music playing while you do it. Helps the time go and make it more fun.

“For the right wing nutjobs — and that that what they really are — this is not tax reform. This is craziness,” he continued. “Adding $1.5 trillion to the deficit at minimum, and that’s only if they cut a trillion out of old people’s health care.”

“These people are nuts trying to do this stuff, they believe their own crazy stuff,” He concluded. “It’s not going to work, it’s going to cost a lot of seats and they know it.”

Jerry, you mention the Mars on 11/11 at 12 Libra in semi-square to the August total eclipse degree and I would add that it also is just 2 degrees from the US natal Saturn and 1 degree from an exact square to US Sun in Cancer. While there are so many moving parts in the sky (as there are here on earth) they will eventually fit together in a clear picture. In the meantime we all wonder where it will all end.

I’m thinking of the many transiting aspects by the large and small bodies that circle our sun which have aspected the US Saturn and the US Sun in the last year or so. I believe they are part of a pattern to undo the grip that US Saturn has on US Sun. Further, I think the whole Trump era belies the real reason for this necessary undoing.

Transiting Pluto will begin to transit (for the final time) the degrees where Neptune and Uranus began their present cycle in 1993, 18 and 19 Capricorn. Pluto was in Scorpio at that time making a square to Saturn in Aquarius. This cycle between Neptune and Uranus carries the signature of undoing Saturnian structures all over the world. In December trans. Pluto reaches 18+ Capricorn, retracing the point in his path where he was last February through July and he won’t leave that territory until February, 2018. He stirs the energies of the Neptune-Uranus cycle.

I’ll stick my neck out that – in the overall picture – it is the outer-planet mission to break through the entrenched (and largely corrupt) Saturn structures; not in one fell swoop, but through many shocking events and a dissolving of trust in those structures.

Right now trans. Neptune trines the U.S. Sun while quincunx US Saturn, and trans. Uranus squares US Pluto while sextile US Moon. These outer transiting planets hold us in thrall while the faster moving planets hammer away – like Mars will on and around 11/11 – bit by bit at the structures that have become our prison disguised as our protection.

We are focused on the shock (Uranus) of Trump’s audacity which belies the real work of dismantling the corrupt structure that we- as a society – have not resisted for fear of retaliation and possible loss of security.

Trump has blasted past all those timid feelings like a tsumani until enough of us speak out and take action in order to save our beliefs and ideals and values; those cherished values that were what we grew up believing made the US so special. Trump is the clarion call to face up to our own part in repairing and replacing those corrupt structures, including political parties who have lost sight of their original purposes.

Having only just discovered this site…I’m in shock!
Look at Rebekah Mercer’s Chart. She potentially could do tremendously serious damage, I fear.

Sharon,

What I found noteworthy is that Snopes characterization of Louise Mensch’s report was not considered false, but merely inconclusive.

The Daily Beast weighs in on the potential for a Trump indictment, although unlikely not altogether out of the realm of possibility…..

Five Things To Watch As Robert Mueller Makes His First Big Move

One extreme scenario is that the sealed indictment charges President Trump himself. It is possible that Mueller has had sufficient time to complete his investigation of obstruction of justice against the President. The obstruction case would involve a somewhat isolated series of events that are less complex than the larger interference investigation. Reports indicate that Mueller has been investigating Trump’s request to former FBI Director James Comey to end the investigation into former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn and related acts that could amount to obstruction of justice. While the law is unclear, under DOJ policy, a sitting president cannot be held to answer to criminal charges in court and may only be impeached. One way to handle that scenario is to indict him now, seal the indictment, and unseal it on the day he leaves office by impeachment or otherwise. In light of the complexities and importance of the case, however, it seems unlikely that Mueller has reached this point yet.

THE PLUTO PATTERN

There is a clear astrological theme that runs through Trump’s demeaning remarks of women, the exposure of that conversation with Billy Bush and the Harvey Weinstein revelations.

On September 16 2005 when Trump was recorded saying, “And when you’re a star, they let you do it, you can do anything… grab them by the p***y” the male Sun was in square to Pluto. Think symbolically – Pluto’s rape of Persephone, or as the Romans would have it – Proserpina.

On October 7 2016 as Trump’s remarks were made public, with the video by the Washington Post, the Sun was in exact square to Pluto. And on October 5 2017, as the Harvey Weinstein accusations surfaced the Sun was back in the same degrees and squaring Pluto.

Congresswoman speaks out about alleged sexual harassment in Congress

Women being the largest voting block we have and their significant others, families, friends, and supporters can set this straight. Let the Women’s March from January 21st continue!

Bob,
After the many years I worked in the mental health field, I was a criminal investigator in Seattle. Before and after the Trump victory, I’ve long noticed an amazing number of R’s behaving in a manner investigators normally interpret as guilty.

I’m nevertheless in shock! My mind is reeling from the information provided at the link you listed. Apart from the Am. Civil War, if all alleged is true it would be the biggest journalistic story in Am. history.

Were ten percent of all that is alleged as to coming indictments is true per the Patribotics report, we are in for an extremely wild ride. What was not clear is whether all these alleged indictments are to occur simultaneously, or to fall like dominoes. In either case, I’m sure Mr.T and his party would obstruct, obfuscate, and label it all as “fake,” and immediately fire Mr. M. They might even use the military to shut the investigation down.

Although I’ve long suspected/intuited what is alleged in the document, I wait for confirmation from reputable news orgs. If it is true, it means the end of the R. party, unless they choose to go full bore fascist, and use the military to end any semblance of democracy and establish a very different form of government from what we’ve been used to.

If not handled well, Mr. M’s investigations and indictments could well foment extraordinary chaos and possibly a stock market crash. If I were Mr. M, I’d be sharing the information with military intelligence and the pentagon to prevent a fascist reaction stemming from the White House.

Nigel Farage under investigation for espionage does not surprise me. I’m sure it warmed Mr. Putin’s heart to see the Brits vote for Brexit. I’ve long suspected Russian interference with the Brexit vote, connected to the interference with the US 2016 election.

But My G-D!
“The Republican Party as a body is under investigation for RICO for accepting Russian money. The GOP itself is being considered to be a corrupt organization under the RICO statutes.”

It makes sense, as well as the various allegations of violations of the Logan Act, but I find all of this so astonishing I don’t know what to do with myself!

Anticipation is too mild a word as we wait to see how much of this comes out to be true, how quickly it evolves, and what unforeseen consequences may ensue.

Eliseo,
From my postings it may seem like I am calm, cool, and collected, but my heart is thumping, my pulse is racing and I am all atingle.

If just the charges against the GOP stick we are on a fast track to wresting all power away from that party, possibly for a very long time like after the 1929 crash when they were out of power for almost all of the next 50 years in the Senate, 60 years in the House, and 28 of the next 36 in the White House (Ike being the only exception).

Bob,

RE: “If just the charges against the GOP stick we are on a fast track to wresting all power away from that party, possibly for a very long time like after the 1929 crash…”

I’ve regarded myself as a Democratic Socialist since 1963 and am today a DSA member. And yet…I see modern Dem Socialists and other various stripes of Progressives, as well as Republicans and Democrats all guilty of the same “sin.” They are all too dogmatic and insufficiently pragmatic.

I’d love to see the R’s cease to exist as a party, but I also fear that upon taking power, Dems will go too far, enacting a mixture of untried ideas, some very good, some pretty terrible into law. There are IMHO a number of issues in which Dems are not looking at the evidence, but religiously adhering to an ideological line. The same is true for the R’s, but exponentially so. For every issue the Dems have wrong, the R’s have twenty.

Medea (A Perspective on Priorities) ~ per astroPPM

Medea is a main belt asteroid discovered in the late 1800’s. This asteroid is associated with extreme passion.

In terms of orbit, asteroid Medea’s innermost point (its perihelion) is at 2.762 AU – meaning it’s just under three times as far away from the Sun as the Earth is. Probably the most important thing to understand in that sense is not so how far from Earth or the Sun Medea is, but where Medea fits in as part of the asteroid belt.

The astronomical asteroid belt occupies that space between the orbit of Mars and the orbit of Jupiter – which in astrological terms defines it as all that ‘stuff’ which lies between our ‘personal world’ and the ‘worldly world.’ We can either take that as our day-to-day life…in which case the fact that the Jupiter/Saturn ‘grouping’ beyond the asteroid belt becomes the greater growth of our life or our maturation as a person….OR we can take this all more in the sense of the astrological concept of the inner planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars plus Earth’s satellite Moon) being our native mentality and habits and all that…and all that we meet up with on our way to becoming that which we can be or become – or learn how to master.

Ripley,
Transiting Jupiter will oppose Mueller’s natal Nessus at 7+ Taurus in November and square his natal Pluto at 8+ Leo. In December trans Jupiter will square his natal Sun at 14+ Leo. In March, trans. Jupiter will square his natal Ceres at 23+ Leo and station retrograde there as trans. Saturn trines his natal Nessus and is quincunx his natal Pluto.

Mueller’s natal Uranus at 12+ Gemini is on the US natal descendant and opposite the US natal ascendant of 12+ Sagittarius. Mueller’s natal Mercury at 12+ Virgo squares his natal Uranus. Transiting Neptune at 12+ Pisces in January/February will T-square Mueller’s natal Mercury-Uranus square, and the US ascendant will complete a grand cross.

In the meantime, transiting Pluto will, in February, conjunction Mueller’s natal Pholus (small cause, big effect) at 20+ Capricorn, where it will remain through much of March. At that time transiting Uranus will arrive at 27+ Aries (this time in direct motion) and T-square Mueller’s north and south nodes, while also exactly sextile US natal Moon and exactly square US Pluto that conjuncts Mueller’s south node.

A total lunar eclipse in January will conjunction the midpoint between Mueller’s natal Pluto-Sun (11+ Leo) followed in February by a partial solar eclipse conjunct the US natal Moon (27+ Aquarius).

Transiting Pluto has just moved off an exact trine to Mueller’s natal Mars-Chiron conjunction at 16+ Virgo, while retrograde transiting Uranus just moved off its T-square to his natal nodes (and square to US Pluto). Transiting retro Neptune just moved out of the T-square to Mueller’s Mercury-Uranus square where it will return to in January.

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement after news that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort and associate Rick Gates have been ordered to surrender to federal custody today:

“Even with an accelerating Special Counsel investigation inside the Justice Department, and investigations inside the Republican Congress, we still need an outside, fully independent investigation to expose Russia’s meddling in our election and the involvement of Trump officials. Defending the integrity of our democracy demands that Congress look forward to counter Russian aggression and prevent future meddling with our elections.”

I have a bowl popcorn in celebration of ….. “it’s about time!”

here is a good comment from nyt’s opinion piece:

“It is not a good omen for the Trumps and Kushners that charges of money laundering and tax evasion have been filed, because it tells us Mueller is going deep into financial records with experienced investigators, and these are the kinds of offenses the Trumps might well be guilty of beyond Russian collusion and obstruction of justice.”

fierywoman, I think maybe you and I hang out at a few other places together! Made me smile when I saw a comment on DU today. Of course, it could be someone else with the moniker, I realize, but still it felt good for some reason to feel like I “knew” someone else there. I don’t post. I haven’t renewed my reg since the take-down. I don’t seem to fit there, nor at the GOS, and I’m tired of the constant infighting of the old primary wars. Too much more important to focus on right now…

Denise Siegel on today’s events.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FMf3wC5n6Cg

slightkc, Yes, that’s me. I was off DU after the take down for many months but then went back. I know what you mean about not feeling like I fit and I’m TOTALLY with you about the infighting about the primary wars. I’m spending w-a-y too much time there — maybe after today’s events I can feel like I’m actually breathing and can get on with things in life that, as you say, are more important.

slightkc and fierywoman:

You’re both from DU? DU is how I found starlight!

Nice to hear others I may have bumped into there continue to visit and take some positive energy to the site. From what I recall they need it. LOL! Primarily lurk here, and my screen name was different on DU.

I loved when I joined (during GW–day before election, I think). By the time we got to Obama, I was spending far less time there–I’d lost patience with Admin. So I exited during the take-down and never returned.

Though I was sad to read that the site was attacked on election night or the week of, by the far/alt-right (nazis, KKK, white supremacists, etc.).

Oh,that’s so cool, fierywoman! You’re a woman after my own heart! (smile)… We’ve had a small string of possible good luck (for us), and seeing a friendly voice over there was like another pearl on that string! I commend you for your thoughtful opinions expressed; they’re really a nice breath of fresh air at needed times there.

Eliseo – like you I was dumbfounded by that statement from one of Louise’s “informants” inre the Repub party. It’s something I’ve long considered, with the way they’ve acted and policies they’ve implemented since before the Reagan era. But to actually see it in print was still a shock — even if it’s on a “score one/lose one” site. But I, too, worry about ensuing consequences should the hammer fall on the majority of the party.

I’m not so concerned about good/bad policies with the Dems, except where the neo-liberal sect is concerned. I worry we could end up with the same bad Wall Street friendly policies from Dems as we would from Repubs – perhaps not as bad… but…

If one of the parties goes down again, we -have- to get changes on Citizen’s United under all costs, IME, first thing. No one talks anymore about public funding of elections anymore. But the more we see that money corrupts our elections and our democracy, the more I hope we might turn once again to getting private money completely OUT of election politics… and that includes those PACs. They really are, IMO, the devil’s imps.

Starlight… with the restriction and stress being lifted from Trump, as you reference in the current blog (with other astrologers elsewhere concurring), how do you see Mueller’s indictments (current and coming) impacting Trump’s astrological stress reduction? Do you think this could show an early indictment onslaught for everyone BUT Trump, with T’s (hopeful) comeuppance waiting for later on? Or does it seem… goddess forbid… he could, once again, escape the justice that’s due him?

Anyone else wanting to answer, I’m all ears, too! I absolutely admit I’m not an astrologer of any of the caliber I see represented here. I’m very interested in what you guys see in your calculations.

Here is another good comment from this article:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/30/opinion/manafort-indictment-mueller-trump.html?action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=opinion-c-col-left-region&region=opinion-c-col-left-region&WT.nav=opinion-c-col-left-region&_r=0

“Mr. Manafort, in other words, embodies the sort of amoral, self-dealing denizen of the swamp that Mr. Trump pledged to drain when he got to Washington. What the president did not anticipate was that Mr. Mueller would be the one doing the draining.”

It’s CRAZY that FOX and the RightWing is still “ENTIRELY” focusing on HRC and The Dossier!

Completely ignoring the fact that George Papadopoulas has plead guilty! Meaning he is a “cooperating witness”!

It was mentioned on TV tonight hat Papadopoulas had reported Trump was speaking daily with Russia near the very beginning of his Presidential term regarding coordination of the New Trump Hotel Trump was planning to build Russia!

It’s like Conservatives are in Complete Denial!
Check-Out Fox News..It’s like an Alternate Reality.
Where it’s Hillary Clinton’s who is totally at fault.
I’m almost worried for the life of Papadopoulas.

It’s all about a guy’s true friends – and DT likely doesn’t have or can’t buy as many as Louis XIV did in France. Leos, being the lonely guys at the top, are vulnerable to friends who change their minds. Louis’s stuck by him pretty much and he had a long life in body and politics, but then he was the Sun King.

On Aug 3, I commented, “Thus, the dilemma of Regulus – hang on, or failure becomes an option. Allies can help you, or push you off the cliff. Revenge becomes very expensive when you are one step from disaster every minute (….why do presidents go gray?). Even Trump, blockhead that he is, must see that. Can he picture himself as a loser? Ouch. Or can he be sensible to keep himself in power? Bet he can, when he must. A man in peril needs friends who won’t push. Revenge isn’t a part of it because in politics you never know who your friends are. Probably for the first time, DT is getting used to needing anybody!……What will he do if his polls nosedive below 30%? He’ll do ANYTHING to hang on to his crown, is what he’ll do. He might even become a changed man….”

Mueller is not DT’s friend – so no betrayal can happen there (but too bad we don’t have an exact birth time). So, there’s Pence, Ryan and McConnell. Whose friends will they be? That is the question.

“Despite Trump’s hysterical denials and attempts at diversion, the question is no longer whether there was cooperation between Trump’s campaign and Russia, but how extensive it was.”

Eliseo, are you awake and watching John Kelly on FOX now attempting to smooth the Trump/Russian corruption issue all over?
I noticed earlier, something new was being orchastrated at Fox.
A whole new approach: Trump is Great!

Patty,
I don’t watch television. I don’t have one hooked up. I do stream MSNBC on my computer, listen to NPR, and read the news supplied to me by google in German and in English.

I’m not surprised John Kelly and the other Trump operatives are minimizing and denying, and frankly telling outright lies, etc. Nor am I surprised they are switching the focus as much as they can to HRC. She’s no angel, but the level of demonization is so over the top, so beyond absurd there are no words.

In my experience with sociopaths they often accuse someone else of the very crime they themselves have committed. It’s a great way of distracting the focus and deflecting. Stage magicians do it as well. They’ll get you to focus intensely on their left hand while they are doing something they don’t want you to see with their right hand.

Faux News! Nothing but propaganda, made up news, very little genuine journalistic content. They, like the rest of the Republican establishment are so heavily involved in psychological projection, it boggles the mind.

Patty,
The meme the R’s are pushing is that since Hillary Clinton’s campaign helped fund the Trump-Russia dossier, it therefore must be all lies, all made-up. This is an obvious logical fallacy, but it rings true emotionally for Trump supporters, many of whom believe that all Democrats, Liberals, Progressives, etc. are criminals by their very nature.

Never in my lifetime, (and I was active in the Civil Rights Movement when I was a teenager in the 60’s) have I seen such mass neurosis, mass delusion as I see in our Am. R. Party today. The sickness is so overwhelming, a psychic stench I can’t seem to escape.

Manafort arriving to turn himself in is tied to the transits of January 13, 2020 (and all of the historical events also tied to that date) as event Uranus is squared by 2020 January 13 transits of Sun, Saturn, and Pluto .

Patty,
RE: “So True! Tactics are becoming vicious, Eliseo.”

Yes, and I’m afraid they will escalate, become far worse. I’m concerned as to how bad the tactics will become, not just in regard to Trump Treason, but generally as Pluto passes through Capricorn. I see a very dark potential I pray never manifests.

Another thought: The difference between Dems and R’s.
I see Dems as misinformed, dogmatically attached to incomplete data and false ideas ONLY on a handful of specific issues. But the Dem worldview is relatively healthy IMHO. The Dem bubble includes a great deal of reality and often some very noble aspirations.

Conversely, although there are R’s who are also of noble character, generally for TODAY’s R. party I see R’s as hopelessly mired in false assumptions about human nature, mired in a plethora of false “facts” within an extremely flawed, fearful
and perverse worldview. They cling to beliefs proven false long ago for a variety of reasons, i.e. avoidance of cognitive dissonance, self-justification for their privileged racial or economic status and success, theological reasons, and in some cases plain old ordinary greed. Of course, many of them project much of that onto Dems.

Another attack! Truck ploughs into a bicycalist in Manhattan. 6 dead; 15 injured. How many of these have we had of these since Trump has been in office?

Re: truck attack, transiting Mercury (22+ Scorpio) was sextile US natal Neptune (22+ Virgo);

This Truck Attack is Horrible…but my first thought:
Well, That totally wipes Trump off the News!

Eliseo, I just attempted to sign up for MSNBC Online. My Computer is new. I checked how to access it, you need Adobe Flash Player…which I downloaded. But now it says:

Is that normal? $29.99/mo for Adobe Flash Player?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samuel_H._Clovis_Jr.

Sam Clovis

In October 2017, Clovis was referenced as the un-named “campaign supervisor” in the indictment and plea agreement of former Trump campaign staffer George Papadopoulos, who pleaded guilty to lying to federal agents about his contacts with the Russia government after being charged by special counsel Robert Mueller, who is leading an investigation. Clovis’s attorney confirmed that Clovis is the “campaign supervisor” referred to in the court filings.

The court documents show that in an August 2016 email, Clovis encouraged Papadopoulos to travel to Russia and meet Russian official

According to Mayor DeBlasio, the attack was a terrorist incident…the truck attacker, this time (unlike a few before, like in New Orleans about 6 mo. ago), yelled God is Great in Arabic. I wonder how Trump will try to use this.

Alex, you might find it interesting that, in the link you posted at 8:51 a.m. about an astrologer predicting the fate of everyone in the WH back in June….the astrologer questioned was Stefanie (Weiss), someone who used to post here quite a lot at one time.

Eliseo, good article by Michelle Goldberg – “The Plot Against America”. She succinctly puts the collusion pieces together. There is more, of course, and, so far, none of this is extremely dramatic but subtle. The main activities would have to be distanced from Trump and Putin so they could more easily be explained away…

Patty, I think they have a good deal of evidence against Flynn, too, and it is not being highlighted because he is plea bargaining — let’s wait and see…

slight kc…At one time, Louise Mensch (patribotics) spoke of all who are in line of succession to the presidency being charged and taken down, all the way to Orrin Hatch, stopping short just before him. He would be the one to then assume the presidency. It doesn’t sound probable, possibly because it could weaken the U.S. to remove so many in positions of power. Anyway, I just heard that Hatch is not going to run again, for whatever that’s worth.

Sam Clovis is supposed to have his confirmation hearing in a little more than a week to become the head of the EPA (first non-scientist to occupy that position, and a climate-change denier). Hope this gets rid of him!

Joseph Mifsud

http://www.cnn.com/2017/10/31/politics/mifsud-papadopoulos-russia/index.html

An academic suspected of being the link between a Trump campaign adviser and the Russian government told a business contact that Moscow had a trove of information about Hillary Clinton in April 2016, months before the information was public.

For Tiffany Trump, the only one of tRump’s adult children for whom there is a known birth time.

Aspects measured in right ascension:

She is going to law school at Georgetown in DC. Pluto stationed square her DC MC in late September and has been in effective orb of 3 degrees or less square her natal Sun and conjunct her natal and progressed Uranus and Neptune for several years now and will be until Nov of 2019.

Transit Saturn has been in effective orb of squaring her Moon (has passed the exact square and is still effective) and has been in effective conjunction with her DC Asc and is approaching exactness (Dec 5) then diminishing until 2 or 3 degrees or more past exactness.

Her recent birthday party was not attended by all family members nor was it acknowledged in social media by any of them.

Correction, Clovis is up for head of the Dept of Agriculture, a position usually filled by a scientist.

He also did a great job dissing Trump when Clovis was head of Rick Perry’s campaign but had to flip to the dark side now that he’s up for a cabinet position.

So according to wiser astrologers than me, the effects of the Aug eclipses really ramp up between 3-6 mos afterward … which starts in early Nov (heh-heh-heh …)

Beowulfie,
Really good NY TIMES articles. Thank You!
RE: “if there is any justice in the universe….):”
IMHO, we confuse the idea of karma with our subjective notions of fairness and justice. I’ve come to believe the only justice that exists is the justice we make. I’m hope Mueller & Co. finish their process and our criminal justice system disposes of these thugs accordingly. I also hope and pray we can accomplish these tasks without violence. But there is no guarantee. Our system has never been so severely tested. We don’t like to face it, but it all could get pretty nasty. My optimism lies in Pluto as it moves toward Aquarius. I certainly want to live long enough to see Orange Man and his colluders go to jail and see an Am. Restoration and Renaissance.

I’ve been wondering when J. Kushner is going to feel intense scrutiny. It appears he already is, but for another interesting (and heinous) crime.
https://www.propublica.org/article/maryland-investigating-kushner-real-estate-practices

Wherever one looks, there is rot. It’s like strolling through an open landfill. And, yes, Eliseo, I too would like to live long enough to see the cleanup, turning trash into light-producing energy.

Just had to look at Mueller’s chart vs. Trump’s even though Mueller’s birth time is unknown. Using Trump’s more certain time in the centre, I progressed it to Oct 30 and compared his natal/prog. to Mueller’s progressed wheel at the same date.

There is a lot of pressure on Mueller right now – he has 4 progressed planets at 26 degrees (prog. Sun, Moon, Venus & Chiron in Libra, Scorpio & Virgo), and they do connect to Trump’s natal Mars at 26 Leo. Undoubtedly, what Mueller is doing is making Trump mad as a hornet.

Also, Mueller has 2 planets at 10 degrees (prog. Saturn in Cancer & Pluto in Leo) which contact to Trump’s natal Pluto at 10 Leo in the 12th. However, these planets are very slow to progress and will be hanging around in the same areas for years. I’d say that’s more a basic condition or state, rather than a precipitating event.

Looking at Mueller’s progressed cluster at 26 degrees, there is nothing much showing on Trump’s side at this degree (progressed). So maybe the heat is all on Mueller to deliver, but it results in little or no impact on Trump, other than him being royally P’d off (per the natal chart contact).

However, around November 15, Mueller’s prog. Moon, which is now at 26 Scorpio 14′, will exactly square Trump’s natal Moon at 26 Leo 47. After that, Mueller’s Moon will go on to square Trump’s Ascendant at 29 Leo 56. Both are coming up soon and could mean direct challenges to Trump by Mueller.

On the other hand, given that Mueller has so many progressed planets at 26 degrees, while Trump only has a natal one, the impact could go the other way – i.e. Trump puts great pressure on Mueller. All of which makes me think Trump will either make a deal with Mueller or Mueller doesn’t challenge the President head on. Mueller does have the power to say he won’t investigate certain things and undoubtedly he would like to win whatever actions he undertakes legally – he would be safer dealing with the ‘other guys’ like Manafort and trying to get convictions without hitting on Trump.

After the next month or so, there’s not much to talk about on comparing the 2 progressed charts. Mueller might go home or retire after his progressed Moon changes signs, although he could just head to court seeing his Moon will be moving into Sagittarius, the natural sign of the 9th. No way to know what house due to the unknown birth time.

Per the picture above, I’d say it is more likely Mueller is not going to attack Trump directly – his window may be too short. Given the huge amount of world wide attention this is getting, he may go where he knows he can win.

You would think there would be a lot of significant contacts between the 2 progressed charts if there is to be a potential destiny-changing event in the lives of the 2 men. Especially, I would expect to see more contacts via the personal planets if Trump were to be ousted via Mueller’s actions or vice versa. Boo hoo!

It amazes me, the extent to which transiting Neptune has infiltrated the scope of the meanings of the third house (communications) of the US natal chart (Sagittarius rising). Confusion and lies in political circles has become routine and now social media platforms wreak of untruths meant to influence the naive.

From there the untruths spread to all corners of our world and what’s to stop it? Something tells me it might be Pluto. This December transiting Pluto will reach the degree(s) where the present cycle of Neptune and Uranus began – a 171 year long cycle which depicts the trends of cultures all over the world – adding a whole ‘nother level of transformation to their original contract.

While Neptune symbolizes endings through dissolution, Uranus symbolizes breakthroughs and freedom, hence the disappearance of the land-line phone and the typewriter. Transiting Pluto adding his influence to the original mission between Neptune and Uranus will no doubt kick it up a notch. If I find or sense what that might mean for us I will tell you on a later thread.

Beowulfie, Barbk:

Even if Mueller has a short time framework to prove a “case he can win”, has anyone looked at NY State AG Eric Schniederman’s chart to see what that relationship is to 45?

Tax fraud or evasion? RICO Act?

https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/content/rico-act.html

I read a while ago that Mueller’s office is engaging NY State AG’s office and sharing evidence/info they have.

The criminals indicted under those laws cannot be pardoned by a federal office holder such as the President or Vice President.

Schneiderman DOB

New York City, New York – NO BIRTH TIME

Hi,

If nothing else, the financial stuff alone should be totally freaking Trump out. In the supporting documents about Manafort and Gates released last night or the night before, it showed how great the detail of financial records Mueller has on both Manafort and Gates.

On Gates alone, they’d tracked down 55 different bank accounts, going back all the way to 2004 in I can’t remember how many countries.

After serving over two million meals in Puerto Rico, Chef Andrés’ work ‘may change how aid is given’

By Gabe Ortiz
Wednesday Nov 01, 2017 · 12:31 PM PDT

Fe, took a quick look at Schneiderman, progressed to Oct 30, same as above, but there is nothing nearly as notable as with Mueller. If a noon birth time is anywhere close, S’s progressed Venus is about to change signs from Capricorn to Aquarius, so maybe a different role for him in future, but no inner planets or prog. Moon show anything major relative to Trump. S’s prog. Neptune is sitting on Trump’s progressed Ascendant (27 Libra), but again that would be more of a long, evolving (and mostly hidden b/c it’s Neptune) story. That’s about all for now.

Besides, why would Schneiderman be eager to take flak from Trump & friends along with Mueller while they are sharing investigation info? More likely, they have agreed that one of them will be the public face if the process while the other one carries on in the background – not that they would have to do that, but it makes sense not to light fires in too many places at once.

“More likely, they have agreed that one of them will be the public face if the process while the other one carries on in the background – not that they would have to do that, but it makes sense not to light fires in too many places at once.”

Beowulfie:

Agreed. Its too much white noise in an already noisy investigative environment, legally and media-wise.

Everyone in New York knows DT is a con man and I am sure Schneiderman is one of a long line of NY AGs wanting to get him. Or his family. We shall see.

Beowulfie:

Do you have Schneiderman’s birth time or is this a noon chart? Could it be rectified given info you have currently?

Fe, only a noon chart for the birth date you provided (about which I know nothing). Not possible to rectify as there are no firm dates to check history against, and it would be a massive task.

Beowulfie,

They’re working together because the NY AG was already investigating Trump’s financial dealings, and — more importantly — because a presidential pardon has no power in state prosecutions. So even if Trump pardoned Manafort for his federal crimes, the NY AG could still bring charges in state court.

Yep, thanks Teresa. I recall reading about that some time ago and wouldn’t be surprised if more people are charged, but whether it impacts Trump or not will be the issue.

I believe the NY AG could indict Trump after he leaves office, and there are some constitutional scholars who say he could be indicted while still in office, but it’s something that would likely end up before the Supreme Court for a final decision on whether it’s legal.

Ah, Teresa… and at this time, could we believe in the truth of the “justice” and/or opinions that the Supreme Court would give us? The politicization of the Supreme Court, especially begun under Bush the Younger, is one of our greatest sorrows, IMO.

SlightKC,

I wouldn’t count on the court ruling in favor of allowing hm to be indicted, but I do think it would be the kind of controversy that would mean nothing else really gets done, which may be the best we can hope for.

Cosmic ray imaging records the behavior of subatomic particles called muons that penetrate the rock similar to X-rays, only much deeper.

The muon scan harnesses special plates that are planted inside and around the pyramid to collect data on the particles, which rain down from the earth’s atmosphere. The particles pass through empty spaces but can be absorbed or deflected by harder surfaces, enabling scientists to study their trajectories and discern what is stone and what is not. Several plates were used to triangulate the void discovered in the Great Pyramid.

The technology was also used to analyze the Fukushima nuclear reactor after it was damaged by an earthquake and tsunami in 2011.

Liz Warren and Bernie Sanders respond to GOP Tax Cuts: $2 Trillion go straight to the richest

By Jason V
Thursday Nov 02, 2017 · 8:57 AM PDT

Right now transiting Pluto (17+ Capricorn) is opposite his own discovery degree (17+ Cancer).

Transiting Venus (24+ Libra) is trine the discovery degree of Neptune (25+ Aquarius) and also trine the discovery degree of Uranus (24+ Gemini), all the while in opposition to transiting Uranus (25+ Aries retrograde. Standby for remarkable news, perhaps ahead of its time.

Seen on CNN: It appears that Hillary secretly controlled the DNC finances (Venus) before the nomination as revealed by Donna Brazille.

Alex, the pyramid story is old news, I believe. They (scientists and archeologists) have known about unexplored cavities in the P’s for some time. Maybe Fox is building up to some ‘biblical end’ hype – it would make Pence happy – doesn’t he adhere to the ‘end times’ philosophy?

Solving the Mystery of the Maltese Professor

Excerpt: “No aspect of this week’s news is more mysterious than the saga of “the Professor”—in reality, Joseph Mifsud, a Maltese national—who served as the hush-hush go-between for the Trump campaign and the Kremlin in the spring of 2016. Notably, he acted as Moscow’s cut-out for contacts with George Papadopoulos, a foreign policy advisor hired by the Trump campaign in the late winter of 2016. Papadopoulos met “the Professor” in Italy in mid-March 2016, then again in London later that month; on the latter occasion “the Professor” brought along a Russian female, allegedly Putin’s niece, to help facilitate the engagement. Papadopoulos emailed the campaign about the success of this meeting, which responded enthusiastically about what had transpired and on March 31, he participated in a national security meeting in Washington that included campaign principals, with Trump himself present.”

Diana,

It’s generally accepted, that the tide could dramatically turn if Trump in a fit of uncontrollable frustrated rage decides to fire special counsel Robert Mueller. That would essentially mark the end of his presidency because in following through with that action he would almost certainly lose the majority of support from his Republican base.

As stated earlier, the first compelling date to watch may be November 11th. There is an exact Saturn-Uranus-Moon grand trine that day with the Moon forming a conjunction to both Trump’s natal Mars and Mueller’s natal Venus. It bears a remarkable similarity to that of the previous Saturn-Uranus trine of last May when FBI director James Comey was fired and Robert Mueller subsequently was assigned as special counsel ten days later.

Interestingly enough, Pres Trump will be in Hanoi, Vietnam on the 11th when all those aspects mentioned come into full play. It should be interesting to see how this unfolds. Here are the two related entries that explains the astrological aspects in fuller detail……

Thanks so much Jerry, going to look at those links now!

From November’s Planet Alert

“This full moon looks like it will not be very good for Trump. Saturn and Lilith are conjunct his moon and south node. This means his karma will be coming back to him. Saturn is exactly opposing his Sun and north node. When Saturn is opposing your sun it is a 29 year low period in your life. It brings up all kinds of issues including depression. It looks to me like this full moon will bring a major change into his life.”

If the beginning of prosecution of the small fish or low hanging fruit isn’t scheduled until mid 1918 how long before cases against the big fish are likely to be wrapped up? And then sentencing dates after? January 2020 for the biggest?

There’s more to the Donna Brazile story:

This includes, at the end, a refutation by Brazile – she tells Trump he is misconstruing her comments. DNC nom was not “rigged” in 2016.

Thank you, Angellight, great link!! Gosh, for the first time in a year I feel hopeful.

Angel light, I echo Ja’s feelings exactly. Thank you.

If the beginning of prosecution of the small fish or low hanging fruit isn’t scheduled until mid 1918 …of course the year should read 2018.

“According to Nancy and other astrologers, Trump is going to go through a quiet time, but with these indictements, it seems things are getting heated up? What’s the prognosis?”

summer and early fall.

There is going to be almost constant pressure on his natal Neptune for months to come and after the next 6 months he will lose what astrological protection he has had.

In the chart I use for the GOP transit Saturn is within minutes of arc of a conjunction with it’s secondary progressed Sun but Saturn is retrograde.

After stationing direct it will conjoin that progressed Sun on November 5th when transit Mars is conjunct trump’s secondary progressed Mars and Neptune.

Mitch McConnell’s happiness probably put on hold as his natal Neptune, natal Mars/Pluto midpoint, and natal Saturn/Pluto midpoint are interacting with each other as they are with transiting Sun and Mercury and later with transiting Saturn.

Mars/Pluto 27°46? Gemini (88°08? RA). Transit Saturn opposition 268°08? – Dec 5th, 2017

Saturn/Pluto 28°13? Gemini (89°04? RA). Transit Saturn opposition 269°04? – Dec 12th, 2017

Neptune 29°13? Virgo (179°49? RA). Transit Saturn square 269°49? – Dec 18th, 2017

(Secondary progressed Neptune at 178°07? for all 3 events)

The RNC suffers with him. It’s secondary progressed IC on December 18th will be at 316°12?. Transit Neptune/Pluto midpoint at 316°37? will be on it. Natal Sun/Saturn midpoint 87°19?. Transit Sun at 266°56? will be opposite.

trump’s secondary progressed IC at 124°39? will have progressed Saturn at 125°09? and natal Saturn/Pluto midpoint at 125°02? on it.

August.”

By: Bob on August 17th, 2017 at 5:19 am

Not only does this month see trump’s challenges go into high gear it marks the beginning of the end of his reign.

This month he crosses the line he cannot jump back across as politicians go into campaign mode for re-election and begin to noticeably pull away from backing his lies and attacks on just about anything and everything and others.

His core base also dwindles from now on.

As companies distance themselves from the party of a president who will not denounce Neo-Nazi’s or white supremacists for fear of losing business from being labeled as supporters of those groups, their financial support, first in congressional, then later in presidential campaigns, will dry up and that is when the word will go out in the Republican party to get trump out. That should be in the not too distant future as campaign season is almost upon us. Like always, follow the money.

With the focus on recovery from Harvey things may go relatively quiet for tRump in September but refresh with a vengeance in Oct and Nov.

I would not be surprised if he orchestrates a distraction around Thanksgiving.

***
By: Bob on September 4th, 2017 at 10:37 pm

The days surrounding Nov 13 may involve some of the change the Aug 21 eclipse foreshadowed for tRump and the country.
On Nov 13th tRump’s secondary progressed Moon is conjunct his secondary progressed Saturn/Pluto midpoint as Sibly’s secondary progressed Moon is conjunct his natal Moon, both being opposite the Sibly natal Mars.

Many aspects in longitude and right ascension to Sibly points and planets by transits and angle progressions during those days. Two of the darkest are transit Mars conjunct sibly Saturn and transit Saturn square Sibly natal Neptune in right ascension.

Ja; Bailey – Welcome. I too felt hopeful when I read the link. Still do.

alex: Freidman was excellent on the Rachel Maddow show. Made so much sense. I wish he would give more interviews on the non stop news channels.

Freidman was on The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell; not Rachel

I saw him last night, Angellight. I’ve always been a fan of his. I remember the days when he supported the invasion of Iraq, thinking that it was a good thing to export democracy…but he eventually shifted his position, moved much further left and never looked back, as they say.

Where’s Nancy? This thread is pretty long.

Angellight

had same experience with Friedman didn’t support him during Bush years now he’s really thought through what was happening and his appearance on the Last Word was forthright and freaking good to hear ……

I’ve been having a night like no other my blood sugar was 29 and I didn’t know it …. I had a 911 visit (never done that before) they pushed dextrose and food into me and I’ve been ill for apx week and hadn’t eaten much didn’t realize my brain was in too much fog to assess my condition until I went into down spiral I’ll have to look at the transits to my natal to see what ‘crisis’ looks like for me and never ever go that way again !

Has it already been a year since the election? 7 1/2 months from now, on June 16, 2018, trans. Uranus will semi-square trans. Neptune, a milestone in their cycle that began in 1993 in the degree of Capricorn where trans. Pluto will be in just weeks.

On that day the trans. Sun will conjunct the degree where Uranus was discovered, 24+ Gemini. This follows a New Moon at 22+ Gemini that will conjunct Trump’s natal Sun (22+ Gemini) and the US natal Mars (21+ Gemini) and square US natal Neptune (22+ Virgo).

The emphasis on US Neptune and the Uranus discovery degree in this time frame, when Uranus and Neptune make their 1st of 3 semi-squares, suggests a disruptive period that would surround Trump which would include the elements of shock, surprise, lack of clarity and truth. Duh.

The transiting North node will be conjunct the US natal North node at 6+ Leo! Transiting Mars (8+ Aquarius) will trine the US Uranus (8+ Gemini)! Trans. Mercury in Cancer will oppose trans. Saturn in Capricorn and trans. Pluto will T-square the US natal opposition between Chiron and Juno.

Since trans. Uranus will have arrived in Taurus for an 8-year stay in May, 2018, his 3 semi-squares with trans. Neptune likely will center around finance and values. Trans. Jupiter will be trine the US natal Sun at that time. By and large I see this as a good thing, this semi-square between Uranus and Neptune.

More reason to re-examine the Neptune-Uranus cycle chart.

Take care alex, we need you.

alex — give yourself credit! Luckily you did catch this time! Too, you’ve learned what to look for in the future. All of this happens for reasons we cannot foresee at the time, but you already know this.

Hi,

From Anne Ortelee,

The bright light makes the Donald very angry right now! We can expect many more unhinged Twitter rants featuring racist nicknames, bizarre phone calls to journalists, and whining about Constitutional checks and balances over the next two weeks.

… We must all tread carefully as the ground shifts beneath our feet. Karma’s a witch.

… “Mend fences or burn bridges?” The choice is — still — up to you.

barbk & karen f

thank you both … I don’t know my situation at present is I have a certain upcoming week of side effects from a medicine my doctor wanted me to try…. then I stopped it cause it was terrible.. I researched online and found that even after stopping it it is slow to leave body and doctor online said it was a 12 day time frame to get beyond the side effects….. I have this week to go through before I’m clear of the issue that got me into a crisis wish me luck for this week that I can keep up and get through it

Alex, I’m thinking of you with loving, positive thoughts, too. Is there anything we can do here to help?…like remind you to eat certain foods.

My husband is on a new brain med for a very short seizure he had in May and if he doesn’t eat protein/lunch, etc., drink enough water and get enough sleep, he starts to become irritable and not quite as rational. I have to make sure in gentle way that he remembers to keep to these parameters.

sharon k

thank you for your kind thoughts …. you are a gentle sould I’m sure your husband appreciates you… my duaghter and son in law going to arrange a caregiver for me for the week someone maybe with RN license we’ll see so we’re looking at options…. it’s kind of new to me to have to be looked after it seem a fact that being reminded to do routine health maintanence is necessary … aging issues really make a person humble

I believe the whole sexual predator comeuppance (poster child Weinstein) is reflected in the Neptune discovery chart, Sept. 23, 1846, that has a Yod which the now transiting Chiron at 25+ Pisces completes a Boomerang with, thus activating the Neptune consciousness prophecy in part.

Neptune was conjunct Saturn at the time of his discovery, both at 25+ Aquarius – 1 degree from US natal Pallas (26+ Aquarius) conjunct US Moon (27+ Aquarius). Saturn and Neptune were sextile Pluto at 25+ Aries, where transiting retrograde Uranus is now. Mars at the time of Neptune’s discovery was at 25+ Virgo completing a Yod.

Trans. Chiron, now at 24+ Pisces and retrograde was at 25+ Pisces most of October and would complete a Boomerang pattern with the Yod in the Neptune Discovery chart, being opposite its Mars. It is still active.

For something so related to Neptune it is shockingly clear in its symbolism. Speaking of shocking Uranus in Neptune’s discovery chart was at 12+ Aries and trine the US natal ascendant at 12+ Sagittarius while the Scorpio Moon was T-square the US natal chart’s nodes indicating a path choice decision for the US.

All I can think of to say is best wishes for a complete recovery Alex because I think that with all of the knowledge you display in your posts that you are aware of what you need to do in your situation and I have no knowledge of how to deal with low blood sugar.

It is good that you have family to help you. I have said a prayer for you to have a complete recovery as soon as possible.

Alex,

Take care of yourself, and I echo the sentiment in Bob’s 5:05 pm post to you.

Sending positive and healing thoughts your way.

Alex, our thoughts are with you. Treasure your Daughter, very few Son’s would be there for you!
And Barbk, I’m sure Weinstein is saying: Why Me? When some Men have been doing this for ages.
The Goddess made Weinstein the Big Fat Example!

bob & janet

thank you both for your kind thoughts and prayers and healing thoughts;

my daughter and son-in -law hired a caregiver to be with me everyday this coming week so I can get through the side effects of medicine safely….I think I’ll get thru and probably learn some new things too

Alex, thank you (and I basically am a very gentle person but my husband sometimes merits speaking up loudly and/or directly & assertively as do others on occasion). It doesn’t mean I’m not gentle and loving though 🙂

I’m so glad you are going to have assistance and you are so right about aging issues making one humble. You still have one of the best minds I have encountered.

Peace & Love –

Sharon

Sharon

Peace & love to you too

I think it’s ok now that things have been sorted – – there is some new stuff I’ll have to become use to and that good and some routine stuff I have been reminded very clearly to do correctly….. I’m thinking about the firemen and the 911 EMT now they were all very good boy am I grateful to them….

Alex,
My heart is with you. I’ve had similar experiences. My positive, healing thoughts are with you.

Eliseo

Thank you for your heartfelt good wishes and healing thoughts may we all have some uplifting good moments upcoming and connect to our loved ones with big hugs

Healing thoughts, Alex! With a high level of sugar, 29, I assume it is diabetes, with which I have become all too familiar (and still don’t understand nearly enough!). It runs in both my own and my husband’s families.

Some people do well on the diets and meds right away and others have trouble – it seems an endless process of trying out diets and drugs and then making adjustments until a balance is reached. My husband did well on a combination of Metformin and Diamicron (which is a very old drug, hardly ever used nowadays – it worked well for him for a long time, but not so much in latter years).

Recently, my husband tried a new med called “Jardiance” which backfired big time in his case. His weight dropped 18 pounds in a month and he first thought that was fabulous! But then he went in for tests and found that his blood sugars had gone UP 10 points, not down! Bad move, but who knew? The Dr. sure got him off that drug in a hurry, but it works brilliantly on some people who must have a different type of biochemistry. Diabetes drugs are very complicated and different combinations work well, and others don’t, for each person.

Here in Canada, we have the privilege (and blessing) of low cost medical coverage, but even here we have to work through the system, which is often pathetically slow to find answers. Still, we do get care and can get even more if we are willing to pay for private clinics. Ordinarily, we don’t have to hire private care givers, but there are some things that are not covered here too. It’s a challenge. We are grateful for what we have and want to keep it that way (though many people complain), but the forces of budgets, private profit clinics, old-fashioned greed and politics are always gnawing at the system.

My husband, just last week, was told he finally has to go on insulin, after 8 years of juggling oral meds and trying (I say ‘trying’) to keep his weight under 230 pounds. He did fine for the longest time, but he never stopped entirely on the sweets. As it turns out that would not have made the difference anyway, although it might have helped a few more years.

The illness is genetic and progressive – it can be managed, but in most cases not eliminated. We have a friend who has been on insulin injections for 27 years, so that is very encouraging – and the friend is fit and fine. However, once the pancreas says ‘enough’, diet and exercise won’t do it alone. When the pancreas is ‘burnt out’ and no longer can produce enough insulin on its own, no matter how healthy the life style and sugar free the diet, the blood sugar levels will climb. When the levels are high, the blood goes from the thickness of soda pop to the thickness of light maple syrup (or thereabouts) and that ain’t good, which is about what a 29 means. The sooner the illness is dealt with, the better for everyone involved.

I hope I haven’t annoyed you with this post, but I feel very deeply that the medical profession should EXPLAIN this disease more fully, in terms that ordinary people can understand. The reasons diabetes is on the rise is NOT just because people are too fat, although that is often the perception. Diabetes is not someone’s “fault”! People are living much longer now and genetic factors often don’t manifest until the later years. Mother Nature’s first priority is always that the species should reproduce in its youth and people aren’t usually sick when they are young. But, after the bloom of youth, we’re on our own and time, experience and the genes will tell the tale.

Wishing much deep healing and good care to you, Alex!

Beowulfie

Thank you for your thoughts of healing – I appreciate your understanding.

You’ve described the managed life of diabetic with insight and I truly appreciate it.

I met this evening the service agent who will be in charge this coming week – they know their stuff when it comes to seniors….. they will help and instruct me thru this transition – I look forward to getting to be productive and independent again soon.

Hi Nancy,

Any chance we could create a new post?

Thank you.

Tuesday November 7th

Mercury at 2 Sag is right at the midpoint (semi-square) to both tr. Pluto (17 Capr.) and Trump’s natal Jupiter (17 Libra).

Will there be more indictments or damning Trump- Russian revelations on this day?

Alex, I don’t think Ja meant any shade toward you. For those of us who access Nancy’s blog via smartphone, when these threads get overly long, they become difficult to navigate.
