2017 Bilderberg "the view from the top of the pyramid of power"
Beginning tomorrow Chantilly, Virginia hosts the 2017 Bilderberg meeting Thursday June 1 until Sunday June 4, 2017. Let's track the Moon and Sun to see what we can see from down here at the bottom of the pyramid of power using June 1st 12 am to June 4th 11:59 pm just to be certain we cover all the secretiveness. For the entire period Sun remains in Gemini, Moon in Virgo floats into Libra:
June 1, 2017 12:00 am edt Chantilly, VA: Sun 10Gem51 conjunct gold-loving asteroid MIDAS (4th house, the Foundation of the Matter). The 7th house Moon 6Vir28; Midheavan (MC; Aspirations) 24Sco45 conjoins the natal IC of Donald Trump. Mr. Trump's attendance doesn't seem to be verified as of yet although a cameo appearance would be his preference, imho, but perhaps he isn't invited! The planet of meetings, negotiations, and communication, Mercury 20Tau04 in one of its favorite houses, the 3rd. This makes Mercury oriental denoting a dot the Is-cross the Ts condition within the work environment. Mercury in Taurus is logical and deliberative but tends toward one-sided views.
The Air-Earth combo of energies of Sun Gemini-Moon Virgo suggests an atmosphere with much mental acuity, intellectual aspirations, and a talent for analysis though nervousness and anxiety may be noted, or even a 'divine discontent'. This is a paradoxical blend of the theorist and the pragmatist who can be honest yet can bend any facts to fit the case, and it is seldom satisfied with the answers given.
'Free reign' is necessary for the best use of these energies and the complete secrecy provided by their shindig location in Chantilly provides them with this. Negatively, a clinical insensitivity to the needs of others is apparent along with excessive fault-finding, criticism, and judgmentalism.
Here are three quotes from two famous folk born under the Sun Gemini-Moon Virgo blend:
"Whence do we Come, what are We, Where are We going?" - Paul Gaugin (my guess: to Hades).
"Ask not what your country can do for you--ask what you can do for your country"; and, "If we cannot end our differences, at least we can help make the world safe for diversity." - JFK.
Once the Moon enters Libra on June 2nd (8:03:35 pm edt) and triggers one of the Cardinal World Points of manifestation and fame (is this thespian Trump's stage cue? *00Libra is the MC of the natal US chart I typically use yet I like the Hazelrigg chart, too), a cultured, civilized double Air blend forms. Sun Gemini-Moon Libra suggests an atmosphere of diplomacy, persuasion, wit, and tact. Someone has a gift for the 'soothing phrase' with charm that may be able to affect a deeper understanding between the bitterest of enemies. That's if a lack of commitment and subsequent boredom doesn't set in.
This combo of energies is that of the natural salesman who loves to explore new ideas. The world is its oyster and smoothing over differences is a talent even though facing and dealing directly with issues would turn out better in the long run for 'skimming the surface' and 'living by one's wits' only works for so long (something Mr. Trump could profit from if he were to listen to good advice).
Let's close with quotes from three famous folk who were born under the rays of Sun Gemini-Moon Libra:
"I wasn't really naked. I simply didn't have any clothes on." - Josephine Baker (who could have been describing 'emperor' Trump).
"Read my lips." - George H. W. Bush.
"Henceforth the adequacy of any military establishment will be judged by its ability to keep the peace." - Henry Kissinger (really?).

* Note that the Moon is a timer in Astrology but so is contentious Mars, here, out-of-bounds, and off on his own, as Mr. Trump seems to be (rattling around the White House). Mr. Trump, born with Mars in Leo rising, is very much a Martian (and a Uranianian and a Jupiterian and is very Mercurial) so when transit Mars hits another Cardinal World Point (00Cancer00) during the meeting on Sunday June 4th at 12:16 pm edt, perhaps this describes the stage cue for his appearance, if he shows at all.
In general: the meetings kick off with a Sun-Moon square which suggests resentment at having to make adjustments in order to reach goals. Someone is disgusted that things aren't working out as planned or expected (to which I say, boo hoo). Defensiveness and quarrels are predictable with this square. However, on Saturday June 3rd, Sun and Moon form a pleasant trine so that solutions are found and harmony is restored. A course of action is developed but it's doubtful that the Common Good is intended to receive whatever 'benefits' may result from this weekend's plans, even as the Moon joins Jupiter Rx on June 3rd at 9:43 pm edt--a fancy festivity, perhaps?
(Transit Jupiter turns Direct on June 9th and is already on its station degree which conjoins US natal Saturn--a partial lifting of responsibilities or restrictions with a Saturnian legal flavor.)
Then there's Mercury in Taurus which crosses the natal MC of Donald Trump where the difficult stars of the Pleiades violently rage and rant. This may indicate discussion of terrorist groups and how to utilize them. And is it curious that during the weekend transit Mars is at '28Gemini' the degree of BANKRUPTCY in the Sabian Symbols? '28Gemini' is also the degree of the void-of-course Moon on the morning of 9/11/01 and you'll remember that bankruptcy was indeed the fate or near-fate of the many people (Moon) whose pensions and other accounts were destroyed on that day, not to mention the emotional bankruptcy the loss of family members and friends brings. And once warring Mars enters Moon-ruled Cancer, he becomes even more emotionally touchy!
And speaking of the Bilderberg 'pyramid of power' and global governance here's a previously posted video for your consideration:
