Horoscope: Trump Impeachment Trial January 21, 2020 12:00 pm est Capitol Building Washington DC; Hour of Saturn, the lawmaker, task master, lesson bringer, and planet of accountability. As you see, transit Saturn opposes Trump's natal Saturn on January 21st and transit Pluto will precisely oppose his natal Saturn on February 13, 2020. Therefore, abuse of power issues abound, plus, silent activities are suggested by the presence of the Saturn-Pluto duo. As you know, Senators must sit silently and listen, and their historic procession delivering the Articles of Impeachment from House to Senate seemed a very Saturn-Pluto affair (similar to Masonic processions--and there they slowly marched in the symbolic heart of the Masonic temple we call the Capitol Building!).
Then as you see in the chart, the star of the Unconscious, Menkar, rises (14Tau32) which is the same Ascendant sign, degree, and star as the Oath of Office on January 20th every four years. Obviously, Trump's taking of the presidential Oath to preserve, protect, and defend the US Constitution, and charges that he has not kept, does not and will not keep, the Oath, is what the trial (Ascendant, the What Point) is all about, plus, Trump's obstructionism of documents and witness testimonies.
At Midheaven ('MC'), the Goal Point of the chart and trial, is 26Cap30 which hosts US natal Pluto Rx (27:33) just as at noon on our Inauguration Days. We can thank FDR in 1937 for changing our nation's inaugural date from early March to January 20th which placed US natal Pluto atop the chart with Menkar rising. To me this seems like power and control as the goals with 'saying what must be said' as the task (Menkar--like Jonah and the Whale). This the US presidency as mouthpiece, bully pulpit, etc.
Meanwhile, chart-ruler Venus in compassionate (or shady) Pisces makes three applying aspects: 1. sextile Jupiter suggests a favorable time for social and political activities and events; 2. square Mars adds energy to the proceedings and conflicts, and indicates competitive spirits that can become aggressive; 3. conjunct Neptune denotes people within the environment who are mysterious, elusive, disguised (Russian or other foreign agents on the scene?), and/or are difficult to pin down. Lots of photographs are taken and are passed around (Trump posing with __, __, and __? surveillance photos?), and success with abstract thinking is a potential.
Well, that's it for now because I hesitate to spend much time on this horoscope because the trial date can always change. Leave your insights and comments concerning the horoscope or the situation with this post as you wish--on-topic only! And Share if you care--it's encouraging. jc
