Astro-Notes: The James Comey Firing, Donald Trump, and the Natal Chart of Benito Mussolini
by Jude Cowell
A quick peek at the natal horoscope of Italian dictator Benito Mussolini (in power from 1922 to 1945) shows his Ascendant-Descendant axis to be 20Scor31/20Tau31. On May 10, 2017 a Full Moon occurred @20Sco24 on the very day that Mr. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey (with the Full Moon phase signifying a culmination of some kind). Since yesterday, calls for an independent prosecutor into the Republican administration's Trump-Russia connections have grown louder as would be expected due to the nontraditional use of such a strong-arm tactic. And since Full Moons (and New Moons) can affect, disrupt, and/or change direction of events in similar fashion to 'wild card' Uranian eclipses, it seems significant that a Full Moon @21Scorpio should trigger the natal chart of El Duce especially since some people have called Mr. Trump a dictator wannabe.
And here's a mildly nauseous stunner involving Mussolini's natal Mars @13Gem08: Mars is the aggressive planet of war and contention, and the combative planet that rises in Donald Trump's natal chart (along with royal Regulus, keywords: success if revenge is avoided--otherwise all that's been gained will be lost--Brady). Mussolini's Mars Return occurred in tandem with the Full Moon of May 10, 2017 at 4:05 pm in his home town in Italy but perfected at 10:05 am edt May 10th when the Return chart is set for Washington DC--and would indicate a new cycle of activity if he were alive. As it is, perhaps he only sat up in his grave and applauded for Donald Trump.

Benito Mussolini July 29, 1883 2:00 pm Predappio, Italy; a Fire-Air Sun Leo-Moon Gemini blend with the conscious-unconscious energies of an ambitious opportunist who tends to rationalize and who can slip into cynicism and/or despondency like a rebellious child. Does this sound similar to Mr. Trump's personality? Well, his Sun Gemini-Moon Sagittarius blend is very similar--it's an Air-Fire combo!
James Comey December 14, 1960 "noon" Yonkers, New York; natal Sun 22Sag+ conjunct the separative Moon-SN conjunction of Donald Trump with its bad timing vibe (suspicion centers on the timing of Trump's Comey firing--why now? see link, below). Mr. Comey's natal Moon is possibly in Scorpio or late Libra (probably in Scorpio, sign of spies, surveillance, detection, and crime). Transit Pluto in Capricorn has been trodding upon Mr. Comey's natal Saturn (karmic planet of authority, control, accountability, directorship) indicating a period when past actions affect the present, structures and traditions may be altered or permanently transformed, and abuse of authority is engaged in--or encountered. Also the current Solar Eclipse of February 26, 2017 @8Pis12 conjoins Comey's natal South Node so that a break or some sort of separation in relationship has a rather loud karmic ring if those relationships are not strong enough to stand the strain. They were not.
Actually, we've already discussed karmic transits to Mr. Comey's natal planets and to the FBI natal chart way back on November 1, 2016 which is around the time of the November 8, 2016 Election when Mr. Trump apparently began to consider the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Why, it's almost as if Trump knew the fix was in.

edit: I almost neglected to add the Sabian Symbol for 21Scorpio: "A Soldier Derelict in His Duty" which must refer to James Comey who wasn't 'doing his job' according to Donald Trump. Or, as Dane Rudhyar puts it, "Obeying His Conscience, a Soldier Resists Orders...Keynote: A readiness to face the results of a refusal to follow the authoritarian patterns of an aggressive society."
