May 2018: Trump's New Moon, Manafort's Trial, Uranus into Taurus

Bi-Wheel Horoscopes: inner Donald Trump (June 14, 1946); outer Transit Uranus Enters Taurus May 15, 2018 at 11:17 am est; Washington DC USA. 'Trump's New Moon' perfects on May 15th as well but earlier (7:47 am est) @24Tau36 thereby conjoining Mr. Trump's Career-Public Status-Goal Point, his natal Midheaven (MC). As a pair of lights, astrological Sun and Moon relate to marriage (husband Sun, wife Moon), soul and spirit, conscious and unconscious minds, vitality and feeling, left and right eyes. At MC, the Sun-Moon midpoint most often brings harmony yet perhaps you agree that Mr. Trump can find a way to disrupt any and all harmony by only wiggling his Twitter finger a little (Ebertin). Saucy, offensive, and/or lewd rhetoric as distraction works for him, too, and for those for whom his antics provide 'cover'.

And so this lunation in the image you see before you represents the start of a new cycle of activity especially for those affected by lunar influences (Trump), as naturally suggested by a New Moon in money sign Taurus with, glory be, a major outlet for these Venusian lunar energies spilling out at Mr. Trump's globally visible MC. However, the three days prior to this New Moon of May 15, 2018 are the 'dark of the moon' phase when things go bump in the night and shady behavior can go unnoticed or be inconveniently revealed. (New and Full Moons may act in similar Uranian fashion as Solar and Lunar Eclipses if various factors make conditions ripe; therefore, 'secrets may be uncovered', 'cover-ups may no longer serve', 'something abruptly ends', and/or 'unexpected events cause changes of direction' just as with those 'wild cards of the Universe', eclipses.) Also note that Trump's MC is affected by a certain fated-karmic asteroid/archetype, Phaethon. He's a fated fellow and an 'eclipse baby', too.

Also in his natal chart, the asteroid of retaliation, Tisiphone, conjoins his problematic SN-Moon conjunction in Sagittarius conjunct Ras Alhague, a star which prefers a restoration of balance, or a healing. Apparently on a socio-cultural level, Mr. Trump thinks he's restoring balance but, to the distress of the rest of humanity, only knows how to achieve a balance of sorts through retaliating, by taking revenge.

Yet paradoxically, Trump's Mars rises in Leo with royal star Regulus, with a caution that says, success if revenge is avoided. If not, all that has been gained will be lost. It's a cosmic, heavenly command, a natural law! Even a man such as Trump, born with asteroid/archetype Apollo rising (the 'sun god'), must himself bow to natural law eventually if not sooner and will reap whatever in the world he has sown.

So Will the Month of May 2018 in America Be Merry Merry?

How does any of this cosmic stuff figure in to the legal situation with Special Counsel Robert Mueller asking for a May 14th trial date? I mean the trial of Trump associate Paul Manafort and the other guy, Gates. Well, the timing may seem 'off' by a day but cosmically speaking, May 14th is pretty darn close to the May 15th New Moon, and to tech-savvy Uranus entering Taurus--both events signifying new directions or activities--for Trump, Manafort, Gates, Mueller, and the rest of the players in this particular Political Theater drama, the outcome of which is sure to matter to millions of people whether they pay attention to the proceedings or not.

As for Donald Trump, we know that, based on his intuitive, quirky manner of behavior, Mr. Trump is very much led by his 'guiding planet' (oriental), his 10th house Uranus @17Gem53, which was conjoined by the 2004 Venus Transit' see the horoscope of its mate, the Venus Transit of 2012 which fell earlier in the Zodiac @15Gem44--and it was the last Venus Transit until year 2117! At the time we discussed in various posts on this very blog the Transit's resonance with 'strong-armed paternalism' which is what we now see from Trump'n'Company and cheered on by their bigoted alt-right supporters. You expected different from over-promising deal-maker and bankrupt king Trump who has called himself the King of Debt? Puh! Not you!

Meanwhile, based on the natural lunar cycle, can the Manafort Trial begin under the influence of (and be symbolized by) the Taurus New Moon conjunct Trump's natal Midheaven (Trump is the goal!)? Yes, but can the proceedings end with the next lunation, the Full Moon of May 29, 2018 @8Sag10? Probably not since two weeks will be too brief a time for such a trial to play out (assuming it occurs at all) and yet a Full Moon is the fulfillment-culmination-awareness phase that book-ends a New Moon so, perhaps. But in Washington DC there are players and operatives who must be seen to 'work' for their money even though bribes, favors, and pay-offs rule most transactions with blackmail and intimidation always lurking 'round the corner, trying hard to stay out of sight of the public eye.

And this is one reason yours truly appreciates Astrology as a lens through which to investigate the dark squirmy critters hiding under Washington DC rocks (and beds) for we know that sunlight, via Solar Eclipses and often Lunar Eclipses, is, as they so often say, the best disinfectant.

But Did I Mention Donald Trump?

You know, this was never an auspicious time for Donald Trump to begin such a large project (whether he knew it was large, or not) of playing US POTUS while he labored under a Balsamic phase of the Moon via Secondary Progressions. Balsamic phases (which occur just prior to a Progressed New Moon) are periods of endings and partings and can be a rather difficult few years emotionally and otherwise. And no one can deny that Mr. Trump has experienced quite a few endings and partings since entering the White House as Uranian-in-Chief, chaos creator extraordinaire. But, let's try to be fair to this Libran Jupiter fellow--more or less trying to run the US government and an administration as if the whole shebang is part of a mafia organization cannot be easy no matter how many mob ties you have, foreign and domestic.

Note: besides manifesting near red star Antares (the Heart of the Scorpion; Watcher of the West), the May 29, 2018 Full Moon @8Sag10 shines brightly upon The Fed's New Moon of 1910. Publicity concerning the Fed may be noticed around that time along with other financial concerns and matters of war--not unusual but prominent. (Note in the New Moon of 1910 Horoscope a YOD crisis/crossroads/special task pattern pointing toward Jupiter-ruled Mercury, trader and deal maker (a YOD pattern, if we count ASC and NN sextile Neptune of the masses, the media, and criminality), and powerful gold-lover Pluto Rx in 2nd house of Money and the National Treasury at '28 Gemini', a degree of BANKRUPTCY in the Sabian Symbols). Yes, the banking and corporate elites had cleaned us out under cover of the Panic of 1907. A too familiar scam, no?

Now here's a famous quote concerning the Federal Reserve 'Bank', a scheme which was sneakily created by Act of Congress late afternoon on December 23, 1913 as members left Capitol Hill for Christmas holidays. Hurry! Scurry to get outta Dodge before your claw prints can turn up on the evidence!

"This {Federal Reserve} Act established the most gigantic trust on earth. When the president signs this bill, the invisible government by the Monetary Power will be legalized. The people may not know it immediately but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed..." - Rep. Charles Lindburgh Sr, Dec 23, 1913
