Sep 3, 2017: Mercury Rx activates 1N August Solar Eclipse

Here you see a horoscope set for the White House of the moment that transit Mercury rx (turns direct Sep 5) hits the precise degree of The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 @28Leo32:56 in the 1 North Saros Series. And with Mars @29Leo12, the warrior planet has just conjoined the precise eclipse degree himself and is, as you know, the quarrel loving Donald Trump's rising planet natally (Mars 26Leo+). Also note that a 1 North Solar Eclipse was the Prenatal Eclipse of the 9/11/01 WTC attacks.

Yes, I've stuffed quite a bit of basic and other chart info onto the horoscope so please enlarge the image if you wish to check it out for not all will be mentioned in the text, below. Shaded green is the area Mercury holds sway in 12th, 1st, 4th, and 5th houses (Jupiter intercepted in 5th h, Uranus intercepted in 11th h--Jupiter-Uranus opposition = political conflicts) which then key their opposite houses: 6th, 7th (Saturn conj Trump's Moon-SN), 10th, and 11th. A neglected listing is the transiting South Node conjunct MC (status and reputation) and transit Moon (public mood) suggesting a lack of popularity and the public's disappointment and separative emotions over Trump's desultory performance.

But why do I display this particular horoscope and what is the significance of communicator Mercury hitting the eclipse degree? My reason is based on the fact that part of the theme of a 1 North Solar Eclipse is: "information is distorted and possibly false" (Predictive Astrology, B. Brady).

And of course, Mercury is intimately associated with information and, in its trickster element, with falsehoods, lies, and delusions. This reminds me of Mr. Trump's natal Mercury-Neptune square ("the sneaky mind" - Oken), a distorted pairing full of off-kilter perceptions and wrong assumptions which doesn't balk at using subterfuge and innuendo to achieve its owner's aims. With this aspect, indiscretion is (Sun-NN-Uranus in chatty Gemini) Mr. Trump's middle name! Many of his 'leaks' are unconscious, of course, but I want to believe that he could do better as he plays the role of US president! Actually, he must be mighty depressed and perhaps pessimistic about now with transit Saturn @21Sag15, stomping his natal Moon (emotions) and South Node, a Saturnian point of separation. (Guess via old man Saturn he's experiencing how most of the world feels about him.)

Be that as it may, you see in the horoscope that Mr. Trump's natal Uranus rises in this chart which suggests his typical unpredictable, eccentric, off-kilter responses to up coming events, opinions, and criticisms; Uranus will bring Trump's North Node (encounters; direction) and Sun (ego; pride) with it.

So not only does transit Mercury activate the implications of the 1 North Solar Eclipse that split America from Oregon to South Carolina in August and which conjoined precisely the natal Ascendant of Donald Trump, but Mercury is the chart-ruler during this, an Hour of Mercury. As chart-ruler we find Mercury making only one applying Ptolemaic aspect--a trine to tech-savvy, rebellious, novelty loving reformer Uranus (a zealous Utopian anarchist when in Mars-ruled Aries - Ebertin). Emphasized, as you see, is a full 4th house of Roots and Foundation of the Matter but also of The Drain. Does this remind you of Hurricane Harvey's destructive effects on the good people of Louisiana and Texas and the continued flooding? Very sorry to say, me too.

Specifically, this Mercury-Uranus trine forming (0A25) indicates that many ideas and communications now concern large societal issues which relate to personal interests (and as you know, there are multiple such issues in discussion). Meetings should be fairly easy to organize and unexpected benefits may be gained via information discovered or through certain people attempting to impress us (or Trump) with their ideas and opinions (2 exs: the media; political partisans). Successful activities may include international finance, scientific and technical areas, air travel, and/or the societal issues cited (- Skalka).

As you notice, success with 'international finance' is on the list yet investigations (Mercury) concerning Mr. Trump's troubles via foreign banks and countries such as Russia (plus, China and Germany, I would add) have a ways to go before Trump's name and reputation are cleared of such a stain if indeed it ever can be.

Sep 2, 2017 Update: have just added to my WordPress blog a few details and quotes concerning September 3rd's Sun Virgo-Moon Aquarius blend if you'd care to have a peek.

Mr. Trump and the Trails of Jupiter and Uranus

The Current Jupiter-Uranus Opposition Imprints Upon the Trump Presidency

by Jude Cowell

Since the Electoral College's selection of Donald J. Trump to play the role of US president has occurred under the auspices of a Jupiter-Uranus opposition--which usually forms a BOWL shape of planets with CEO-financier Jupiter in the lead--let's consider the trails and conditions of Jupiter and Uranus during Mr. Trump's first term with the Jupiter-Uranus opposition as the cosmic imprint upon his entire presidency.

Now as you know, when planets meet by degree in conjunction, it is the beginning of a new cycle and with Jupiter and Uranus, that new cycle started in 2010 and spread into 2011 with three Great Conjunctions: June 8th @00Ari18 (a World Point of Manifestation), September 19th @28Pis43, and on January 4, 2011 @27Pis02. The Jupiter-Uranus pair represent multiple potentials, some of which are: protests, strikes, unrest, revolution, change for the sake of change, reforms inspired by religious ideals, legal methods utilized against breakdowns in order, legal or religious stifling of justice for the common people, growth following periods of reform, exaggerated disruptions, accepted contrariness, peculiarities, the need to give opinions where little skill or expertise exists, freedom and independence issues, zealous representation of one-sided views, group organizing, magnifying or exaggerating everything, philosophical and political conflicts, fortune hunting, speculation, discoveries, inventions, and/or a sudden release of tension or strain.

Prudence, far-sightedness, and lucky breaks can be part of the Jupiter-Uranus picture as well and concerning events of 2010 and 2011, 'Arab Spring' uprisings in the East and, in the West, the 'Tea Party' formation and its congressmen come to mind. Under consideration now on Capitol Hill for Mr. Trump's Cabinet is Tea Partisan Representative Tom Price, a Republican from my home state of Georgia.

Now here is a chronological listing of recent and current Jupiter and Uranus Stations Direct and Rx--four turning points--across the Aries-Libra axis in 2016--2017:

1. Jupiter Direct Station @13Virgo15 May 9, 2016;

2. Uranus Direct Station @20Ari33 December 2016 (conjunct US natal Chiron);

3. Jupiter Rx Station @23Lib08 February 6, 2017;

4. Uranus Rx Station @28Ari31 August 3, 2017.

A Cosmic Impact on Donald Trump?

One reason I believe the current 'dance' of Jupiter and Uranus is pertinent for our nation in these uncertain days is that the newly-presidented Mr. Trump was born with natal Jupiter @17Lib27 Stationary Direct in his 2nd house of Money, Possessions, and Values (with deceptive Neptune and Chiron) and Jupiter is engaged in a 12-year cycle, a Jupiter Return, to natal position in his chart, usually a fortunate period. We may wish to credit his political 'lucky win' to Jupiter's magic wand. Yet his Jupiter Return 2016/2017 is a three-fer becoming exact on: 1. December 4, 2016; 2. April 13, 2017; and August 4, 2017.

But it's not all Jupiterian roses for the grabber-in-chief since the transiting Cardinal square between radical Uranus and wealthy gold-hoarding Pluto is involved off-and-on: tr Uranus opposes natal Jupiter (misplaced optimism, results of professional expansion are unpredictable and possibly unfavorable, circumstances and people are difficult to manipulate to advantage) and tr Pluto squares his natal Jupiter (exaggerated self-importance and taking himself too seriously can be stymied by those with more power and influence). The Million Woman March across America and the globe on January 21st (the day after Trump's inauguration and his bleak inaugural address) displayed People Power and emphasized the fact that Mr. Trump has No Mandate from We the People.

Let's note that at the age of 70, he may be privileged to experience an upcoming Uranus Return to its natal sign and degree. Natal Uranus @17Gem53 (in 10th house with North Node and natal Sun--a radical reformer and tradition-breaker is he) returns on: 1. August 14, 2029; 2. November 2, 2029; and 3. May 27, 2030 when tr SN conjoins natal Uranus, a very separative condition.

As for the current BOWL pattern formed with the Jupiter-Uranus opposition as its 'lip', we've discussed the pattern in prior posts but let's review since it describes a new presidency. According to Marc Edmund Jones, a BOWL 'holds things' and in a horoscope creates a hemispheric emphasis depending on its tilt. Since this is a transiting BOWL, the tilt varies but we can say that the occupied segment shows activity and organization (from Uranus in Aries to Pisces, Aquarius, Capricorn, Sagittarius, and Scorpio) and the unoccupied segment (from Jupiter in Libra to Virgo, Leo, Cancer, Gemini, and Taurus) 'becomes a challenge to existence' and denotes where needs exist and are influenced 'constructively or vindictively' by an orientation that arises from division.

Yet there are available planets in the unoccupied signs which have opportunities to fulfill the mission or promote the advocacy of a cause implied by a BOWL shape for in the empty segments (signs) not contained by the BOWL we find Mr. Trump's Sun-NN-Uranus trio in Gemini (he airs dilemmas but can or will he improve them?), his Venus and Saturn in Cancer, and his natal Pluto in Leo and Mars rising at Ascendant in Leo with royal Regulus.

Also in the empty segments of the BOWL we find US natal planets: Venus-Jupiter-Sun and Mercury-Rx in Cancer and US natal Neptune in Virgo. Other planets may also aid in the mission of the Trump presidency and the Republican objectives that lurk behind the new president's populist curtain of campaign promises.

In closing, here are the dates that the ongoing Jupiter-Uranus opposition has and will become exact: 1. December 26, 2016 @20Ari/Lib33 with Uranus Rx; 2. March 2, 2017 @22Ari/Lib11 with Jupiter Rx; and 3. September 28, 2017 @27Ari/Lib22 with Uranus Rx, and Jupiter Direct and headed for the ruthless corporatist sign of Scorpio which moneybags Jupiter enters in October 2017.
