If you've wondered why We The People seem to be every plutocrat's dupe, guinea pig, and cash cow, try this from Thom Hartmann:
One astrological factor in the US natal horoscope of July 4, 1776 which relates to the exploitation and oppression of the American people is the plutocratic Pluto-Chiron duo with its midpoint conjoining US natal Ceres (grains, food supply, security needs...) @8Pisces, the position of the upcoming Solar Eclipse of February 26, 2017 in the 19 South Saros Series.
And in a fit of cosmic and political synchronicity, 19 South also manifested on February 4, 1981 @16Aquarius - conjunct the natal Sun of Ronald Reagan yet it wasn't a 19 South but a 19 North Solar Eclipse that affected the 1980 Presidential Election and the 1981 Inauguration of Reagan just as 19N does now with Election Day 2016 and Inauguration 2017. These are the sort of astrological factors that support the idea that Reagan's first term and Trump's upcoming first term may share more tendencies in common than many people yet realize. Yes, 1981's favor-the-rich trends are repeating in 2017.
And of course revealed is the ongoing plutocratic Republican agenda to dismantle New Deal and New Society programs that aid the non-wealthy (enabled by corporate Democrats) which will be on steroids under a paternalistic Goldman-Sachs Pence-Trump administration - Trump the tweeting mouthpiece and diverter-in-chief, and Pence the actual administrator.

A link to Reagan's first inaugural address is included in the post. A comparison with Mr. Trump's inaugural address should be interesting although incomplete sentences may prevail over Reagan's eloquence.
Eclipse Note: an eclipse in the 19 South Series repeated once between 1981 and 2017 on February 16, 1999 @27AQ08 and conjoined the July 4, 1776 position of US natal Moon (We the People) and set us up for the delusions, illusions, and distortions of the fabled August 11, 1999 'King of Terror' (or 'Alarm') Solar Eclipse with its Revelation-based Fixed Grand Cross. 1N is often called The Mother of All Eclipses being in the 1 North Saros Series which first manifested on January 4, 1639 @13Cap48 (opposite a future US natal Sun). One historical event of 1639: it was the year of the first Colonial Constitution.
1N repeats on August 21, 2017 @29Leo conjunct Mr. Trump's natal Mars and Ascendant and has a label of its own: The Great American Eclipse.
