Autumn EQ 2019 Washington DC: Good vs Evil, As Within So Without
by Jude Cowell
In Manly P. Hall's The Secret Teachings of All Ages we find that, the pentagram symbol (5-pointed star) is "the time-honored symbol of the magical arts".."the five senses of man, the five elements of nature, the five extremities of the human body. By means of the pentagram within his own soul, man may not only master and govern all creatures inferior to himself, but may demand consideration at the hands of those superior to himself." (My italics.)
Will Order From Chaos occur and override Uranian Donald Trump who only knows how to 'govern' via chaos and who is overshadowed by lawsuits and investigations everywhere he turns? We can hope. Now as you see in the Autumn Equinox 2019 Horoscope, below, the US Inaugural Ascendant (14Taurus) sits atop the chart at Midheaven ('MC'), the Goal Point, as does the Moon-Neptune midpoint. This forms two pictures suggesting an unstable personality who is "gripped by forebodings." Can this be Trump under pressure and feeling cornered? Well, in mundane charts the Sun represents the leader, or in this case, US POTUS (by which I mean the fellow currently playing the role) and this Sun 00Lib00:00 conjoins the Jupiter-North-Node midpoint in the 2nd house of the National Treasury (with chart-ruler Sun making no Ptolemaic aspects in the chart other than opposing Chiron). Of course, one of Trump's favorite planets, Mars @23Virgo, is in 2nd house as well and conjoins US natal Neptune, a time when unwise decisions are probable and getting to the bottom of things is difficult if not impossible. Keeping a low profile is the best course of action but who would expect such moderation from attention-hound Trump? Especially since America's natal Mars-Neptune square of misguided action is activated by transit Mars to Neptune.
Then with the anti-social Neptune-North-Node midpoint conjunct the Equinox MC we may expect that the help of others is needed in order to reach objectives, while someone is in seclusion (though he may still be tweeting up a storm and calling heads of state on the phone for cozy chats. The way you do).
Above you see the DC Horoscope for Autumn Equinox 2019 which perfects when the Sun enters Libra (00:00:00) on September 23 at 3:50:25 am edt (aka, the Libra Ingress); highlighted in red is a stretched pentagram pattern pointing toward the Midheaven of the chart (MC 14Tau54) which subsequently conjoins America's Presidential Oath of Office, the Ascendant, at noon on January 20th, the swearing in of a new president. In this case, that would be Trump playing the POTUS role. The lower left point of the star conjuncts Trump's Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter trio in his natal 2nd house--closest to his Chiron and therefore the middle of his speculating, inflating, fraudulent Jupiter-Neptune midpoint. So for Herr Spanky a midpoint picture of potentials is formed by transit Mercury (conjunct US natal Saturn 14Lib4) as apex---his natal Jupiter-Neptune = transit Mercury: skills with deceptive practices; misleading or misdirecting the attention of others. With US n Saturn: combining the real with the unreal in activities; curtailed occult practices (Munkasey). Also note that rising in 1st house is transit Nemesis @28Leo26 conjunct the natal Mars and Ascendant of Donald Trump (which brings royal Regulus along as well: success if revenge is avoided--if not, every gain is taken away). Finally, is this a cosmic picture of a foe that's unbeatable for Teflon Trump?
Note: you're welcomed to take exception to my use of the stretched pentagram shown here but let's proceed in case the pattern turns out to have relevance to events and to current crises at least until Winter Solstice 2019 occurs and 'takes over' in December. If the pentagram is irrelevant, we'll find out by the time 2019 careens on into 2020.
Now a pentagram is a 5th Harmonic pattern and with an exact one, all five points (planets, points, etc) would be conjunct in a 5th harmonic chart ('H5'). Yet pentagrams rarely turn up in horoscopes so I'm allowing a stretching for this one. For as you know, its symbolism has been used for centuries by secret societies, other organizations, and in sacred, gnostic, Kabbalistic, and satanic systems and beliefs. In Christianity a pentagram often represents The Star of the Magi (or, Star of Bethlehem) and, as noted by Manly Hall in the quote, above, relates to man--and particularly to Leonardo da Vinci's illustration of the Vitruvian Man (health, fitness, asteroid Hygeia, the practice of medicine). Issues of the 'balance between mind and body' are implied which suggests some of the public discourse prevalent concerning the health of Donald Trump.
So pentagrams also relate to the Mind of Man (and Woman), the Fire element, to creative regeneration, and to those who are on a continual, adventurous quest upon which new, often unexpected events are encountered which may help rectify mistakes or past events--thus bringing order out of chaos. Plus, a definite spiritual component (good vs evil) is involved when a pentagram appears and there's often a 'brilliant bolt from the blue' that hints of erratic Uranus, The Witness, the Rebel, the Disrupter, the Maverick--and changes of direction become necessary. (Note that Uranus @5Tau55 Rx in 9th house is unaspected in this chart suggesting 'spurts of unusual behavior projected onto others'--Tierney.) Also Sun unaspected indicates a self-involved person with no conscience.
So does the Autumn EQ 2019 pentagram symbolize that someone new will appear on the scene, someone to counter Uranian Trump successfully? If so, he or she may be characterized as a 'giant' who has the power to affect and manipulate global events either for good or evil. Is she/he already on the scene (exs: the fellow lurking in the Oval Office, or, a 2020 candidate?) or is she/he someone new as suggested by the pentagram? With Venus in Libra in the 2020 Election Horoscope, the incumbent party is expected to retain control of the presidency although the Venus Cycle didn't manage to block a couple of exceptions to the rule in past presidential elections. So the certainty that this must be Trump in 2020 isn't necessarily the case, I suppose, and certainly much has happened in recent weeks on the Trump-whistleblower-Ukrainian front to suggest more strongly and blatantly than ever how unfit for office Trump is. Plus, Venus Cycle or no, if enough women, minorities, and Millennials vote Democrat, another Blue Wave could sweep his nibs out to sea.
Yet it's also possible that his status as Teflon Trump, a Bacchus figure (see 2nd house Sun @00Libra conjunct transit Bacchus!), will continue to protect him from all accusations and threats which suggests to me that people in very high places want him to remain in the White House as the saboteurs of America tick off items on their devilish to-do list. We know that major shifts are occurring around the world so is US global leadership becoming a thing of the past under agent Trump?
Then with another look at the horoscope, we see that Pluto-MC = Neptune which denotes potential scandals, other-worldliness, peculiarities, and "power run amuck" (Tyl)--a few of the things we already have experienced under the auspices of scofflaw Donald Trump. So if someone 'new' intends to appear, let's hope our difficulties will abate soon even if they can't disappear all together especially since December 26, 2019 brings the world a Capricorn Solar Eclipse in the 3 South Saros Series with its authority-related karmic imperatives and the promise--whether we're ready for it or not--of traumatic transformation, a concept which is well supported by transit Pluto plodding through Saturn-ruled Capricorn, transforming structures and systems as he creeps toward 2022 and his position in our nation's July 4, 1776 chart.
