Aug 9, 2018: Nixon Resigned 44 years ago today Will Trump Follow His Excellent Example?

August 9, 2018: Forty-four years ago today, Richard Nixon resigned from the Office of the Presidency in order to avoid impeachment and the parallels between Nixon's actions in the White House and those of Donald Trump are revealing. Perhaps you've seen today's CNN segment with John Avlon pointing out the similarities between the two men--up to the point where Nixon resigned. Editor-in-chief of The Daily Beast and a CNN political analyst, Mr. Avlon is the author of Washington's Farewell which yours truly is currently reading along with several other books, a habit I can't seem to break because I don't want to.

As we learned 44 years ago, resigning from the presidency is an easy task as evidenced by Nixon's resignation letter sent to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger which may be viewed here. In a SO'W post of August 4, 2007, I included a link to the letter and some natal details on Nixon himself noting that his Sun Cap-Moon AQ personality blend suggests a very descriptive 'Image for Integration' concerning Mr. Nixon's presidential destiny:

"Having struggled unaided to the peak, a mountaineer hitches a ride on a passing helicopter." (Sun-Sign Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey).

Perhaps you agree that the 'struggling' and 'hitching' are exactly what Tricky Dick did thanks to his 'fall from grace' which can be astrologically associated with taskmaster Saturn in 10th house or near Midheaven. That's because law-abiding Saturn, planet of The Establishment and the status quo, demands that human beings abide by laws and rules, honor worthy traditions, wisely administer their responsibilities, and stand up when accountability comes to call. Past mistakes that are never made whole eventually overwhelm when karmic Saturn's imperatives are neglected.

Yet power-mad control freak Nixon was born with Saturn @27Tau29 in his 9th house and power-broker Pluto in late Gemini--also a karmic planet--in his 10th house of Career, Public Status, and Aspirations so that the planetary pair of hardship and severity straddle Nixon's natal MC (Saturn-Pluto = MC). And now, with Mr. Trump under siege and hunkered down in the White House--and many of the 'best people' he hired turning out to be crooks--we shall note that Nixon's natal Saturn conjoins the natal MC of Donald Trump who was born with the nasty star of rage and violence Algol at Midheaven. And this is how Donald 'Algol' Trump is seen by the world (MC). Then significantly enough, the next Great Conjunction of Saturn and Pluto @22Cap46 on January 12, 2020 precisely conjoins Donald Trump's natal Vertex, a point of fated encounters.

Another interesting chart factor is that, assuming Trump's birth data is accurate with a birth time of 10:54 am, royal Regulus rises, a star carrying a serious imperative of its own: 'success if revenge is avoided; if not, all that has been gained will be taken away.' Why, 'revenge' is what exactly Donald Trump loves to take--just like Nixon did! Did I hear you say 'enemies list'?

Plus, there's yet another link between Donald Trump and the Nixon administration and resignation which you can read about in a previous post Trump and the 1973 Eclipse of the 'Saturday Night Massacre', a popularized term for Nixon's firing of the Special Prosecutor investigating him--you know, like Trump longs to do to Mr. Mueller (a vengeful firing which would not stop the investigation).

Now do any of these markers and cosmic links signal in America's future a Trump resignation as he treads the Nixonian path? We must wait and see!

Nixon's resignation: 33rd anniversary

Thursday, Aug 9 is the 33rd anniversary of Richard Nixon's resignation from the Office of the Presidency.

Here's Nixon's resignation letter sent to Sec of State, Henry Kissinger on Aug 9, if you've never seen it. Someone wrote "11.35 AM" upon it (seems to be initials, "HK") so I'm looking at a chart for Aug 9, 1974, 11:35 am edt, White House.

And here's the Home link to WaterGate info if you want to skip the resignation letter. It has a handy Timeline, and more.

Shouldn't Bush be taking a page from Nixon's White House stationnery by now? you ask.

At Nixon's resignation, tr Saturn (13Can22) was conjunct America's n Sun which represents the leader in a nation's chart. Saturn brings along lessons, accountability, and may bring loss based on past actions which are opened to review. (But Saturn rewards long-term effort where it's deserved!)

With Nixon's n Saturn (27Tau29) in 9th house and n Pluto (28Gem39) in 10th house of Public Status/Career, a fall from grace based on irresponsibility (misuse of authority...Saturn does not like that) and abuse of power within Career (Pluto) wasn't written in stone--our charts are not, y'know--we choose how to use what we were born with--but it would've taken a stronger, more self-aware individual to fight against the temptations of power than Mr. Nixon possessed.

His proud Sun Cap/Moon AQ personality blend gave him a need to always be in control to the point of torment, and much emotional insecurity with a deep fear of rejection. He was deeply suspicious of everyone, as we know, and had an ability for ignoring people and matters which didn't interest him.

His AQ Moon indicates a detached mother, Cap Sun shows an authoritative, perhaps cold, father...not a very cozy childhood, and it's debatable how helpful his early religious training was to him emotionally. He never got over his sense of inferiority--and the only other n planet above the horizon in his birth chart is nebulous Neptune (24Can46) in 11th house of Groups and Associations.

I suppose you could say his secretive, 11th house Neptune 'served' him as he colluded with the White House "plumbers" and their Dem spying/burgling plans which resulted in the Watergate scandal. Of course, the full-of-lies Vietnam War was underneath it all, as the Iraq War is underneath Bush-Cheney's impeachment troubles (among other things--there's much to choose from with this crew, the worst we've ever seen.)

Nixon's Sun/Moon blend's Image:

Having struggled unaided to the peak, a mountaineer hitches a ride on a passing helicopter.

Sounds like his final journey from the White House when it wasn't so certain that he would not be prosecuted. My guess is that he was glad to be saying farewell without a stripedy suit upon his back, and I remember that day, seeing him on TV, saying buh-bye, which brought me to tears.

This sad, pathetic excuse of a president had ruined my favorite city--I lived in D.C. during Watergate, and the pall that Nixon cast over the city hung over us like a wet blanket of corruption. My tears were deeply sad for 'my' beautiful city, but were also tears of relief to see him go.

Buh-bye, indeed, but save your 'victory' signs for something more honorable. (Crooked presidents make me mad-as-a-wet-hen, then as now.)

And so, as Bush-Cheney and their chickenhawk pals weather the storm of distrust they have brought upon themselves--and with America's safety valve of the Impeachment process undermined by the charade that was Bill Clinton's impeachment--Saturn's Return to conjunction with the US n Sun (after nearing it beginning in the second half of Oct 2003) was exact June 10, 2004...therefore, Saturn conjuncted Bush's n Sun in June 2004 as well.

My question is: what are we waiting for?
