February 2017 Karma: White House natal Saturn Eclipsed

The White House natal horoscope that I typically use is set for the day second President John Adams moved in (November 1, 1800). This was a day of a Full Moon @8Tau55 which perfected at 8:35:31 am LMT and times a horoscope with Saturn, planet of authority, authenticity, accountability, reliability, maturity, and conservatism, at a position of 22Leo59. So as you see, the natal Saturn of the White House has been eclipsed this month by a revealing Lunar Eclipse @22Leo28 as the early weeks and scandals of the Trump White House careen on. In this karmic eclipse season there are more secrets and leaks to come, no doubt, for what has been sown will be reaped.

Plus, the eclipsing is made more sad because the demands of Saturn in Leo are for loyalty, trust, realism, and reliability but these have been betrayed, it seems, by Mike Flynn, now a disgraced casualty of 'Flynngate'. Refusing to learn the lessons of Saturn is a very bad idea in any circumstance yet unaddressed so far by the White House is the fact that Mr. Trump is disappointing the American people in the very same areas that should be uppermost in a president's character which for Trump is distorted by his problematic Mercury-Neptune square of indiscretion and loose lips.

John and Abigail

Soon after he moved in, President Adams wrote wife Abigail a letter in which he opined his wish that, “none but honest and wise men [shall] ever rule under this roof.” Ruh-roh! Do you think that Mr. Adams sleeps soundly at his eternal rest under a worst-foot-forward Trump administration? (Some say that 22 Leo is the "worst foot forward' or "being one's own worst enemy" degree and in my past consulting work I have noticed this bearing out. And many times, so-called political 'gaffes' can fall into the foot-in-mouth category.

So considering how active, leaky, disappointing, and eroding transit Neptune in its own secretive sign of Pisces is proving to be, it seems to me significant that the White House began with the Sun (POTUS, as we call the archetypal role now) @8Sco55 and approaching nebulous scandal-bringer Neptune (16Sco40), planet of fraud, corruption, falsehoods, propaganda, masks, disguises, the media, the masses, flooding--and leaks of all kinds. Somewhere I've read that leaks from the White House (Executive Branch) began under the administration of third President Thomas Jefferson, but no matter when the problem began, it is now on steroids from within and without the Trump White House.

Now as you know, the February 10, 2017 Lunar Eclipse pairs with the February 26th Solar Eclipse in the 19 South Saros Series which, in a flurry of cosmic synchronicity, happens to be the Prenatal Eclipse (@24Libra45) Series of the White House (Nov 1, 1800)! This personalizes and emphasizes the eclipsed Saturn condition. In addition, the eclipse degree is now approached by transit Jupiter, planet of increase and expansion, though the Great Benefic sometimes provides 'too much of a good thing' and/or a slippery slope to calamity. Transit Jupiter will reach 24Lib45 in mid-September 2017 and has been performing a three-fer Jupiter Return for Mr. Trump who was born on June 14, 1946 with a Stationary Direct Jupiter @17Lib27 (in his 2nd hou$e within a Neptune-Chiron-Jupiter trio, a bubbly description of his inflationary financial style). Lunar and Solar eclipse charts are linked for viewing, below.

My basic point today is that the chaos, dishonesty, scandals, and conflicts of interest (transit Jupiter-Uranus opposition = political conflicts--Ebertin) of Donald Trump playing the presidential role is setting us up for Global Government and soon we shall hear how our and the world's problems are simply too big to be handled and solved by a little ole' nation state like us. Whether Trump is incompetent or is playing his role as such doesn't matter yet as I've typed before, I want him to do well as president because it means that America does well (same as I said for Mr. Obama). But so far, Mr. Trump has been masterful at damaging our nation's international reputation and 'doing well' seems more and more like only a Neptunian dream...

Here is a very much recommended video report which reveals part of what the Trumpian chaos is for: WikiLeaks: The US strategy to create a new global legal and economic system: TPP, TTIP, TISA. As it turns out, the new 'trade deal', the TISA, is even worse than the much maligned TPP--a corporate power grab which was set up and expected to fail. And shill-in-chief Trump signed an executive order that 'removed' the US from the TPP as if on cue.

Astro-Note: November 1, 1800 Full Moon: Sun Scorpio-Moon Taurus, a muddy (the trail to the White House was very muddy that day) Water-Earth blend that suggests an all-or-nothing approach, possessiveness, and a tendency to be blind toward the motives of others. And given the dubious and possibly criminal nature of its current denizens, you may find that one of the blend's Images for Integration is again descriptive of the modern-day White House: "Pluto takes Persephone into the Underworld." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles and Suzi Harvey).

No, the well-wishing John Adams would not be impressed with the Trumpians at all.


If you wish, view the horoscopes of the Lunar Eclipse and the February 26, 2017 Solar Eclipse in murky, karma-laden Pisces with notes included. As usual, the charts are set for Washington, DC which in Mundane Astrology represents the entirety of the United States of America.

deja-vuing Alberto Gonzales

Here are some of the highlights from SO'W of past Gonzo posts for a look-back upon the already-been-seens:

Bush's mojo haunts Philadelphia mint

mint releases more "godless" dollars so you know he's had a thumb in the pie.

May 17...just after the New Moon of May 16 = double Taurus (money) flavor.

Art is still prevailing, sorry to all my excellent starry friends. Back to SO'W before you know it but for now I'm hangin' out at Cosmic Persona Designs, Secret Moon Art, and my Lulu Storefront with Downloadable Art Goodness just oozin' from layer to layer...

June 25...Saturn opposes Neptune...exactly (partile) so smoosh your hats down around your ears, m'peops...the reality vs illusion game is really in the air now and all summer--with new art in the wings, propaganda flying thick, and more leaders and authority figures being undermined everywhere you turn.

Jerry Falwell 1933--2007

UPDATE May 17: the headlines scream that Wolfowitz may resign this afternoon (another good riddance) so Saturn in Leo ploughs on removing those who must go now go now. Will Gonzo join the throng?

Saturn's current passage through Leo (leadership) has taken another leader, Jerry Falwell, as Saturn brings blockages, restrictions, and loss.

Born Aug 11, 1933, Falwell's n Sun 18Leo32 has again been triggered by tr Saturn 18Leo45 now moving direct.

Having natally an opposition between Sun (vitality; the heart) and Saturn 12AQ36 (protective structures; skeletal system; skin) conj IC (endings), it may describe a clear picture of heart problems unless I miss my guess--and I'm not one to keep up with the man's personal details (since I don't believe that Christians can possibly covet the halls of earthly power and remain true to Scripture.)

Between his n Sun and MC 13Leo05--and with Sun as final dispositor of the chart (AstroDataBank gives his natal chart an A rating) there is a midpoint picture worth noting because tr Saturn visited there in August 2006...Neptune/Pluto relates to religion and supernatural concerns...

Neptune/Pluto = tr Saturn: gradual decline of powers and faculties; pessimism; dark forebodings.

Then tr Saturn moved on to n Sun itself, a period of restriction and loss which isn't as difficult if you're a whippersnapper, but at age 74--and with possible heart problems--is a difficult transit to come out of in one piece with all your faculties intact.

Transit Chiron has recently been conjuncting his n Saturn at IC as well, as did undermining Neptune which tends to disintegrate structures when conjuncting Saturn. With his n Sun/Saturn opposition, this means Neptune also opposed n Sun...another indication of eroded (Nep) vitality (Sun.)

All I've heard before checking his chart is the announcement of his passing, so it will be interesting to see if his heart was involved, and if he'd had any surgeries in the last year or so--also indicated.

With n Mars/Chiron midpoint at n MC, this sacred warrior has gone down for the count and my best wishes go out to his family in this time of loss and sadness.

Here are some Previous Posts concerning Saturn in Leo, loss of leaders, restrictions, and such:

Fidel Castro who hasn't been seen in public in quite a while now;

Tony Blair has now announced he's out the door at the end of June-- good riddance;

Congress' Saturn Return and the last of this Saturn Return, hit #3, occurs July 13, 2007;

US Congress Solar Return 2006 is still in effect;

Bob Ney who's in the slammer for his dirty dealing (Saturn to n Pluto)--Saturn demands accountability when we take his lessons of responsibility lightly;

Cheney's Health plus Fixed Grand Cross the rigid my-way-or-the-highway stalemate we're still seeing in Washington;

midterm elections 2006--this post has Saturnian Scythe info and a link to John Townley's site with more on Saturn's harvesting sickle...

Wonder who'll be next?

McNulty is history, calls for Gonzales are still echoing through the chambers of Washington--how genuinely I know not, but he does have a bunch of Leo planets as does George Bush--so stay tuned for more on Saturn's stomp through Leo which completes in early Sep, 2007.

Makes you wonder if Bush will finish his term.

testing Bush's will, cont'd

Bush to Democrats: do not 'test my will' on Iraq 27 Apr 2007 Dictator George W. Bush warned Democrats Friday not to "test my will" by passing new legislation on a US troop pullout from Iraq after he vetoes a bill passed by Congress this week. [YOU ought to be in Gitmo with your will being tested on a waterboard. --MDR]

Bush Administration Will Not Assess Surge Results Until September --White House Scales Back Talk of Iraq Progress 28 Apr 2007 The Bush administration will not try to assess whether the troop increase in Iraq is producing signs of political progress or greater security until September, and many of Mr. Bush's top advisers now anticipate that any gains by then will be limited, according to senior administration officials. The timelines they are now discussing suggest that the White House may maintain the increased numbers of American troops in Iraq well into next year.

Iraqi Oil Min Warns Companies Against Deals Bypassing Central Govt 26 Apr 2007 Iraq's Oil Minister Hussein al-Shahristani Thursday warned international oil companies from signing oil contracts that bypass the federal government in Baghdad and the Oil Ministry, in a clear reference to deals signed by the Kurdistan Regional Government with a number of foreign firms. "Foreign companies shouldn't sign any contract that isn't through the federal government (in Baghdad) and the oil ministry," al-Shahristani said in a statement handed to reporters. "Any contract that is signed without the knowledge of the federal government is illegal," the minister said. "The ministry warns companies against violating the Iraqi laws and they would be responsible of such behavior," the minister said.#

Blair sinking in sleaze

Here you see today's transits for noon, London, to Tony Blair's natal chart.

As you know, Mr. Blair is under tremendous pressure of late--as is his twin George Bush--and we see here recent transits to Mr Blair's 12th house planets.

Read The Scotsman's take on Blair's troubles (which are often self-created) Blair sinking amid sleaze allegations for details.

Now 12th house-ers are usually good at secretive occupations dealing with large organizations such as--you guessed it--politics, and Blair's having Venus (relationships; values; money), Mercury (thinking; communications), Sun (ego; true life purpose), Jupiter (one of two Social planets relating to the expansion principle, to optimism and confidence, and negatively to hypocrisy and to over-confidence--a manifestation often seen in charts of politicians along with 12th house back-door-deals for pocket-lining); Mars (energy; action; intitiative) lined up in 12th house (of Self-Undoing) is great for strengthening purposes until a bunch of transiting planets come along to knock them over like bowling pins.

If we see these planets as ACTORS opposing Mr. Blair we may see that for some time--certainly since 2005 when Jupiter opposed natal Venus--he has been under great stress. Most of these recent oppositional transits involve such things as:

plans, ideas, opposed or dismissed out-of-hand; unfavorable time for group endeavors, meetings (Mars oppo Mercury: Oct 17/18, 06);

unfavorable for ego-related situations; bad time for displaying arrogance or aggression or to resist the authority of others; Half-Birthday--time for reassessing one's progress or its lack (Sun oppo Sun, on or about Nov 8);

discontent with personal achievement (or wealth!); a difficult time to find anyone who is the least bit impressed with you;; overblown efforts and discouraging comparisons (Jupiter oppo Jupiter, 3rd week Nov);

others actions/efforts are diametrically opposed to your own; the hitting head against the proverbial brick wall transit; aggression succeeds even less with equally determined force against you by others (Mars oppo Mars, on or about Dec 11.)

These are just some of the effects of the last several weeks to Mr.Blair's natal chart in the opposition realm...and there's the ongoing tr Saturn to natal Pluto, the power planet.

Now many people--self included--are of the Pluto-in-Leo generation and so we all have had, are having, or will have this important transit to our natal Plutos.
But it is made more important for those who are directly connected with societal power structures...such as politicians like Blair and Bush.

So what to expect with the Saturn to Pluto transit?

Saturn...control; restriction, denial, loss, and accountability stomping on Pluto's could even say the power-behind-the-throne and perhaps secret activities:

loss of control in situations which are too large to handle efficiently or readily;
may lack resources to be the one in charge; struggle to understand or control current motivations, behavior, and actions that developed as a result of the past.

Saturn brings the past to catch up with us...and you'll read about it for Mr.Blair and his bribes to the Saudi Arabia royal family to secure their order for 72 Eurofighter Typhoon jets, and his cash-for-honors scandal--and his stopping of the SERIOUS FRAUD OFFICE's inquiry into the arms deal--in the above-linked article.

Now...where can America get one of those Serious Fraud Offices? What a hoot of a name! Propaganda rules, m'peops!
