February 12, 2021: Spotlight on Trump Defense Team

February 11, 2021: Tomorrow, February 12, 2021, the Trump Defense Team of lawyers (such as they are) will present what some call a defense of Trump's indefensible incitement of the January 6, 2021 Mob Attack upon the US Congress with its goal of stopping the vote certification which favored President Joe Biden. As you know the Trump Mob's slogan "stop the steal" featured heavily on that day as our Capitol Building was breached, desicrated, vandalized, and rioters with violent intent searched the halls and chambers for VP Mike Pence and Speaker Nancy Pelosi in order to - and here I'll use the word 'harm' - them. You've seen the disturbing videos this week or previously, or perhaps you watched the violent insurrection in real time as did I.

Today, House managers of the trial, the Democrats, wrapped up their case even as I typed (400 miles South of the Capitol) and personally I'm feeling about as sparky as a limp dish rag as this week draws to a close. So no horoscope of tomorrow in this post but let's share a few cosmic details concerning February 12, 2021 Capitol Building Washington DC.

February 12th: the Bundle shape of planets continues which is the shape of dictatorship (ex: see Benito Mussolini's natal chart, or this).

Obviously, with the planets gathered these days on one side of all horoscopes, the Bundle relates to Trump's plan for a successful coup on January 6th which could have installed a Trump dictatorship by negating America's traditional 'peaceful transfer of power' via certification of the Electoral College Vote. (As Trump had said in an interview, it would be a continuing (of his regime) rather than a transfer of power to Joe Biden.)

So looking at two horoscopes, one set for 12 noon and one for 1:00 pm est tomorrow, in both charts transiting Icarus @24Cap37 (who flew too high; associated with downfall and assassination) conjuncts saboteur Pluto, quite a cosmic picture of instigator Trump's behavior. He called his violent thugs and other supporters to the Capitol Building on January 6th like the Pied Piper he is!

Now as you know, today at 2:06 pm est, a New Moon perfected @23AQ13 so this week of the Senate Trial has occurred undercover of a Dark of the Moon phase, a good time to discuss and review (Mercury Rx) 'things that go bump in the night', only the January 6th insurrection happened primarily in broad daylight.

Therefore, today's cosmic weather for the Democrats is a reasonable, civilized Sun AQ-Moon AQ double Air blend of conscious and unconscious energies while tomorrow the cosmic picture for Trump and the Republicans changes to an Air-Water Sun AQ-Moon Pisces. So let's not bother expecting substance from an Air-Water combo, for it's misty, unsubstantial, and on the ethereal side. Double Air prefers benefits for society and strives for objectivity. Air-Water is known for an impractical approach that uses the intellect to defend against or deny emotions.

Why, the emotions of senators (even senators!) have been stirred this week - visibly on their faces! So for me it will be a sad and predictable drama tomorrow to watch lawyers for Trump attempt to defend his indefensible words and actions which led to violence on January 6th as the Executive Branch attacked the Legislative Branch of government. Then comes the farce of Republican senators contorting themselves as they try to justify their refusals to hold the culprit accountable by voting for the conviction of the violence-promoting Pied Piper who calls himself Donald Trump.

And then? He'll feel and be emboldened.

The Progressed New Moons of Trump and Bolton

Below is a dual image of the Secondary Progressed (SP) New Moons of both Donald Trump (lower left) and John Bolton (upper right). Trump SP New Moon we've discussed here previously and since Trump's natal chart is apparently accurately timed (birth data, below), the date of Trump's SP New Moon is assumed to be accurate.

John Bolton's lack of a correct birth time is more problematic when attempting to assess his progressed planets--the SP New Moon you see here issues from a 'noon' natal horoscope--and the SP New Moon's degree for Mr. Bolton is the same (8AQ52) for all three 'natal' charts I've progressed for this post--setting his natal chart for 12:00 am gives an SP New Moon on October 16, 2018 while 11:59 pm gives October 17, 2017. As noted, a natal chart set for 12:00 noon results in an SP New Moon on April 16, 2018, as you see. And since Mr. Bolton is scheduled to take over the position of National Security Adviser for Donald Trump on April 9, 2018 (last I heard), I'm choosing the 12:00 pm natal chart to calculate Bolton's SP New Moon, symbolically the beginning of a new cycle of life as will be his new White House job (if nothing goes wrong):

As you know, the timing of an SP New Moon denotes that one has been living previously within a darkened Balsamic Lunar Phase of endings, partings, and things going bump in the night, and may time a period when secrets abound. A good example of this phase and its effects is Donald Trump who was 'elected' during the phase and began his White House tenure under it. Balsamic phases are not favored periods during which to begin a new phase of life or a new project or job as we've seen with the many departures and endings of his alliances and relationships since he entered Politics. It's also a period of life when someone cannot carry on and another must take the reins in one's stead. If this can be applied to a previous president's term ending and a new fellow moving in, then there we go--Trump in the White House.

Otherwise, the constant hints or threats of VP Mike Pence taking over the POTUS helm could be part of this Dark of the Moon time which will symbolically come to a close on September 16, 2019 with Trump's SP New Moon @3Virgo12. For a view of the SP New Moon chart you see here along with the chart of the beginning of Trump's Balsamic Phase in April 2016, try this previous post. Of course, with SP New Moons, it takes time before the new life phase and its new themes become apparent to the individual as the lunar light symbolically brightens toward the culmination of an SP Full Moon.

Sabian Symbols Are Informative for Lunar Phase Degrees

Rounded up, the Sabian Symbol for Trump's SP New Moon '4Virgo' seems applicable to his concerns: "A Colored Child Playing with White Children." Now this doesn't mean that Trump is a colored child (though he behaves like a pouting little man-baby) but it does reveal a particular issue he must deal with at this time of life, and of course, the suggestion of racism and bigotry tend to be on his menu. The Keyword for '4Virgo' is: INTIMACY...and its negative expression = lack of capacity for psychological adjustment. I think most if not all people have given up hope that Trump can or will choose to change his behavior to any appreciable amount.

As for Mr. Bolton (whenever his SP New Moon perfects), his SP New Moon's rounded-up degree is '9AQ": "A Flag Turned Into an Eagle.". The Keyword for '9AQ" is: DRAMATIZATION...negative expression = vindictive pride. For Mr. Bolton, the Balsamic Lunar Phase holds true since he's stepping into the White House position left open by Trump's recent ouster of General McMaster (though I must confess that 'vindictive pride' sounds very much like Donald Trump's behavior). Plus, that Bolton may also be in a Balsamic Phase bodes ill for his new position lasting.

Planetary Shapes Also Inform

A further comparison may be made via the shapes of the planets in the SP charts: Trump's SP planets form a BUNDLE denoting an opportunist and archetypal dictator with narrow interests, one who can build the small into the great (which includes a tendency to turn mountains into molehills--and to build towers, one supposes). Supporting the Balsamic endings vibe is Trump's SP Saturn conjunct SP Midheaven which can be a potential marker for a fall from grace if conditions are right and other chart factors and transits concur. There certainly are those working against him to facilitate such an outcome to Trump's political career.

(Note that the natal chart of Benito Mussolini contains a BUNDLE shape of the archetypal dictator--at least, that's how Benny chose to use those particular energies.)

John Bolton's SP New Moon is a different tale for his SP planets form a SEESAW shape denoting one who constantly weighs pros vs cons, works mentally within polarities, and sees the world as full of conflicts. Bolton's natal Mars-Uranus opposition supports such a world view but unfortunately it does so on a grand and explosive scale and may be used by Mr. Trump to 'justify' war maneuvers and further power and territory grabs.

March 23, 1919: Mussolini's Fascist Party (an Eclipse Timeline)

March 23, 2018: 99 years ago today, Italian dictator Benito Mussolini founded the ring-wing Fascist Party as 'Fasci di Combattimento' ('Fighting Bands') based on the struggles of 19th century Italian peasants. Advocates of Italian nationalism and wearing black shirts as uniforms, Mussolini began a campaign of terror and intimidation against his leftist opponents.

Here is a list of the applicable Solar Eclipses and their themes which influenced the Fascist timeline of events:

Party Founded March 23, 1919: 11 North December 3, 1918 @11Sag = changing groups and making greater commitments; last manifestation of 11 North: 2009; next: 2027;

Fascists March on Rome October 1922: 15 North September 21, 1922 @27Virgo = joy through commitment; last 15 North: 2012; next: 2030;

Mussolini Proclaimed 'The Leader' (Il Duce) January 1925: 17 South January 24, 1925 @4Aquarius = good news and sudden success in group matters or projects. And oddly enough, 17 South is the Prenatal Solar Eclipse Saros Series of Herr Adolf Hitler. Last 17 South: Spring Equinox 2015 @29Pisces (conjunct Cardinal World Point 00Aries00) and PE of Trump's POTUS bid announcement in June 2015; next 17 South: 2033.

Besides the disruptive actions and nationalist rhetoric of Donald Trump, it's no wonder that a 'history rhymes' time link between Trump, Mussolini, and Hitler has been effortlessly easy for most people to realize whether they wanted to or not.

And to me it seems that the one useful thing Mussolini provided the world is a clear equation which keeps on giving--in our day through the machinations of Donald J. Trump and his wealthy corporate backers and political operatives:

Corporatism + Statism = Fascism.

And I suppose that since the above Solar Eclipses repeated during the tenure of the more popular and more like-able Barack Obama (2009, 2012, 2015) we must toss his presidential actions and rhetoric into the same barrel with Mussolini-Hitler-Trump. For after all, that's what America's much-touted 'pass the baton' really means--the same old empire-building regime and agenda merely with a new hand on the White House helm. And tragically for the entire world, that's how the 'death star' Pentagon's US war machine bombs on and pilfers all our money and resources.

All About Fascism, Oligarchy & Plutocracy in America - Thom Hartmann

Author and broadcaster Thom Hartmann expounds for those who care:

More from Thom: Are There Fascists in America? Yes and They're Not Who You Think They Are.

Corporatism + Statism = Fascism a la Benito Mussolini (born under Sun Leo-Moon Gemini, the personality blend of the 'rebellious child') who lost most of his popularity once he aligned with Hitler.

Comey Fired, Trump Feisty, and Mussolini Mooned

Astro-Notes: The James Comey Firing, Donald Trump, and the Natal Chart of Benito Mussolini

by Jude Cowell

A quick peek at the natal horoscope of Italian dictator Benito Mussolini (in power from 1922 to 1945) shows his Ascendant-Descendant axis to be 20Scor31/20Tau31. On May 10, 2017 a Full Moon occurred @20Sco24 on the very day that Mr. Trump fired FBI Director James Comey (with the Full Moon phase signifying a culmination of some kind). Since yesterday, calls for an independent prosecutor into the Republican administration's Trump-Russia connections have grown louder as would be expected due to the nontraditional use of such a strong-arm tactic. And since Full Moons (and New Moons) can affect, disrupt, and/or change direction of events in similar fashion to 'wild card' Uranian eclipses, it seems significant that a Full Moon @21Scorpio should trigger the natal chart of El Duce especially since some people have called Mr. Trump a dictator wannabe.

And here's a mildly nauseous stunner involving Mussolini's natal Mars @13Gem08: Mars is the aggressive planet of war and contention, and the combative planet that rises in Donald Trump's natal chart (along with royal Regulus, keywords: success if revenge is avoided--otherwise all that's been gained will be lost--Brady). Mussolini's Mars Return occurred in tandem with the Full Moon of May 10, 2017 at 4:05 pm in his home town in Italy but perfected at 10:05 am edt May 10th when the Return chart is set for Washington DC--and would indicate a new cycle of activity if he were alive. As it is, perhaps he only sat up in his grave and applauded for Donald Trump.

Benny and Donny and Jimmy

Benito Mussolini July 29, 1883 2:00 pm Predappio, Italy; a Fire-Air Sun Leo-Moon Gemini blend with the conscious-unconscious energies of an ambitious opportunist who tends to rationalize and who can slip into cynicism and/or despondency like a rebellious child. Does this sound similar to Mr. Trump's personality? Well, his Sun Gemini-Moon Sagittarius blend is very similar--it's an Air-Fire combo!

James Comey December 14, 1960 "noon" Yonkers, New York; natal Sun 22Sag+ conjunct the separative Moon-SN conjunction of Donald Trump with its bad timing vibe (suspicion centers on the timing of Trump's Comey firing--why now? see link, below). Mr. Comey's natal Moon is possibly in Scorpio or late Libra (probably in Scorpio, sign of spies, surveillance, detection, and crime). Transit Pluto in Capricorn has been trodding upon Mr. Comey's natal Saturn (karmic planet of authority, control, accountability, directorship) indicating a period when past actions affect the present, structures and traditions may be altered or permanently transformed, and abuse of authority is engaged in--or encountered. Also the current Solar Eclipse of February 26, 2017 @8Pis12 conjoins Comey's natal South Node so that a break or some sort of separation in relationship has a rather loud karmic ring if those relationships are not strong enough to stand the strain. They were not.

Actually, we've already discussed karmic transits to Mr. Comey's natal planets and to the FBI natal chart way back on November 1, 2016 which is around the time of the November 8, 2016 Election when Mr. Trump apparently began to consider the firing of FBI Director James Comey. Why, it's almost as if Trump knew the fix was in.

Here's an MSNBC-Rachel Maddow segment: Comey Firing Raises Question: Why Now?

edit: I almost neglected to add the Sabian Symbol for 21Scorpio: "A Soldier Derelict in His Duty" which must refer to James Comey who wasn't 'doing his job' according to Donald Trump. Or, as Dane Rudhyar puts it, "Obeying His Conscience, a Soldier Resists Orders...Keynote: A readiness to face the results of a refusal to follow the authoritarian patterns of an aggressive society."
