Tarot plus Astrology: Williamson, Warren, and Biden

August 1, 2019: today Mary Ann at Revealing Light Tarot posted to YouTube an illuminating reading on this week's Democratic Debates which focuses on candidates Marianne Williamson and her "dark psychic forces" reference to Donald Trump, Senator Elizabeth Warren and her popular appeal, and Joe Biden and how some Republicans may vote for Biden on November 3, 2020 "just to get rid of Trump."

Note: here's a handy list of the Top 40 Best Tarot Decks of All-Time (2019 Votes).

For astrologers, tarot readers, voters, and others who are not under the spell of Trump (Gemini the magician!) his evil, violent intentions have been clear from the start. What was Nazism but a death cult? And the Klan and white supremacists are dark birds of a feather as well. So as we've previously discussed, Trump's unaspected Pluto in Leo in his 12th house of Karma, Self-Undoing, and Politics identifies him as a man "overshadowed by shadows," a description of someone ensnared by the evil forces of Pluto, the 'dark lord', a man haunted by his own misdeeds. Of course,
Pluto (of the plutocrats!) relates to the Underworld of death, criminal syndicates (mobsters), and hidden (and nefariously gained) wealth but also to black magic and the mind control techniques Trump employs in his rhetoric a la Herr Hitler. This is one reason yours truly has taken to referring to his nibs as 'Herr Trump" which may be wrong but it feels so right.

To illustrate, here's an excerpt from an October 4, 2016 post concerning his Unaspected and Out-Of-Bounds Planets (my Bold added):

We must put a double emphasis on the condition of Mr. Trump's natal Pluto in egotistical Leo since Pluto is out-of-bounds as well as unaspected. When OOBs, Pluto embodies the lawless, mold-breaking, zaniness of an OOBs planet along with an outside-the-box style of thinking and speaking that breaks boundaries and cannot be under anyone's control. Pluto grabs power (and publicity) and we don't need Astrology to tell us that this describes Mr. Trump to a T.

However, disturbingly for our country, an OOBs Pluto, archetypal god of the Underworld, may also indicate one who is a sociopath and/or a criminal, particularly in the Leonine realms of gold and finances. {} Certainly his oppressive business dealings are in the news via contractors and others who have worked for him but have not been paid, plus, the tax avoidance made possible by laws that favor the wealthy--legal, yes, but anti-societal and hypocritical of him. And the primal violence of Pluto has been part of his campaign--even to the point of hinting at Second Amendment gun violence as an antidote to certain problems via Pluto, the assassin, aided by aggressor Mars (edit: which rises in his chart, and also in 12th house with saboteur Pluto).

And here's an excerpt from a May 18, 2018 post A Ginger Step into Donald Trump's 12th house which applies to today's plutonian topics:

Distorted by years of repression, Pluto in 12th house denotes intense passions, primal fears, and obsessions that for Donald Trump are unevolved because his Pluto is unaspected and detached from his other planets. He may often feel that his ego will be overpowered by others unless he fights 'tooth and nail' for he must win at any cost just to survive. Compulsively he tries one defense then another in an effort to defend himself from attack even though the gained relief may be only temporary and such 'solutions' usually lead to bigger problems later on. Is Trump a bearer of our Collective Shadow? Pluto in 12th says so, and reveals the presence of demonic forces of the unresolved 'sewage' of mankind. Tragically, this supports the theory now being heard in our public discourse that we Americans have the president we deserve.

Today I will add: deserved--but giving We The People the chance to change America's course from the dark side! Marianne Williamson supports reparation, a very good start, and I would add the withdrawal of the US military from the Middle East, and--of course--holding Trump, his minions, and enablers accountable. His kleptocracy of incompetence and exploitation must end!

And who can forget Trump's former (?) handmaiden Steve Bannon who was quoted in a DailyKos article on November 18, 2016 that, "Darkness is good. Dick Cheney. Darth Vader. Satan. That's power." He went on to say, "It only helps us when they (liberals) get it wrong. When they're blind to who we are and what we're doing." Oh we see you: you're political fanatics and satanists who conjure and use "dark psychic forces" to call upon America's Collective Shadow for support of your vile, violent, anti-American ideas.

So let us remember that although Trump is a TransPluto Figure, Saturn-Pluto Time Nears (Conjunction @22Cap46) which will hit Trump's natal Vertex (22Cap51) of 'fated encounters' and/or 'changing work conditions' on January 12th and thus color the entirety of year 2020! Yet the Saturn-Pluto combination of energies can also engender 'the adept' and 'the magician' (Ebertin) so here we are back to Trump the Gemini and a magician of the black arts.

Now in case you're wondering after all my fussing, my 2020 druthers for president in a fair world is Senator Elizabeth Warren whose Sun-Uranus conjunction would be a good debate match for Trump's Sun-Uranus conjunction--hers in Cardinal Cancer, his in Mutable Gemini with his karmic North Node in between. But I see no way that Big Bankers will approve Senator Warren as the Democratic nominee given her policies, or as president if she's the nominee. And Joe Biden? He recently told the wealthy class that "nothing will change" if he's elected and I believe him. So no repeal of the revenue-dwindling GOP tax cut for the wealthy, Joe? Complicity! Plus, there's his somewhat controversial record in politics. Well, as I've stated many times these last few years, I'll vote for a rag mop for POTUS as long as it isn't a Republican. How about you, dear reader? Under Trump's spell are you? Doubtful if you're reading Stars Over Washington!

Trump a TransPluto figure but Saturn-Pluto time nears

Image: Donald Trump's Precessed Progressions January 12, 2020 12:00 pm est showing his SP Pluto-TransPluto-MC-Saturn rendezvous. His non-precessed Progressions for that date show SP MC @1Leo34 conjunct his natal 12th cusp so SP Saturn @3Leo has yet to symbolically cross SP MC, but it will happen soon.

Astro-Notes re: TransPluto

When spoken of or infrequently used in Astrology, TransPluto is most often referred to as a hypothetical planet which may or may not actually exist. Well, it is said to orbit even farther away from Earth than distant Pluto itself yet according to expert astrologer Lynn Koiner, TransPluto Is Real! Now whether you agree with such an assessment or not, Lynn's article contains pertinent information concerning TransPluto and while reading it I recognized the bedeviling Donald Trump as the TransPluto figure who's been keeping the world awake each night with his wacky and deplorable--yes, deplorable--antics, bigotry, insults, propaganda, and criminal activities since his escalator descent of June 16, 2015 to announce his prez bid--expertly timed by a seed-planting New Moon @25Gem07 that very morning.

Now some folks consider TransPluto to be 'more plutonian than Pluto' but there's more...

For four years later we 'know' Trump better and it seems that the archetype of TransPluto described in Lynn's article--"Personality keywords: The Perfectionist/Perfectionism, Self-Sufficiency, The Reformer Complex, and Alienation"--apply directly to Mr. Trump (so determined to reform and rule the world which was Hitler's goal, too) so I hope you'll check out Lynn's assessment if you're unfamiliar with her research for these terms apply to Donald Trump much more deeply than my limited knowledge of TransPluto could ever have guessed. Plus, they support other chart factors and the work of other astrologers on the topic of Trump's childhood and the harsh criticism from Mom and Dad--especially Dad in his case--which made Donald the flawed, fear-driven, greedy individual he is today. Plus, Don Sr now passes on the crazy and treats his own sons in a similar witheringly critical fashion, Don Jr in particular.

(See astro-notes on Trump's unconscious 12th house of Politics, Karma, Self-Undoing, Secret Enemies and Hospitals--he's a man 'overshadowed by shadows'.)

Yes, such childhood issues apply to each of us, of course, for whose parents weren't narcissistic and made mistakes that continue to affect us negatively as adults? However, not everyone behaves as vengefully and achieves on the grand scale that the misshapen Donald Trump has with his bottomless pit of emotional needs for applause, approval, and his compulsive desperation on the material plane for more and better--and no criticism allowed. That's where the alienation comes in--work alone and no one can get close enough to you to criticize the flaws you fear you have. At least, that's his work method...alone for he can 'do it all' better than anyone else (as you may have heard!).

But his work conditions and/or methods may change drastically once the Saturn-Pluto conjunction of January 12, 2020 occurs @22Cap46--precisely opposite Trump's natal 11th house Saturn in watery, Moon-ruled Cancer, a sign of self-protection and nationalism, and simultaneously conjuncts his natal Vertex (which relates to transformation at or in work, and to fated encounters). Plus, old man Saturn, planet of work, brings karmic lessons to us all and when opposing natal Saturn, negative conditions form which relate to past actions (and mistakes--and in his case, illegalities), plus, regret, failure, and a lack of progress often result. That's if the individual hasn't acted with integrity and taken responsibility for his actions as Saturn demands. Yet a lack of conscience can soften the blow and we may soon see whether or not Trump has one or no--if so, it is hidden deep within.

Now this particular fuss actually began unbidden when I had a look at Trump's Secondary Progressions ('SP') set for January 12, 2020 which shows his SP TransPluto at SP Midheaven and snugged right between his SP Saturn (in SP 9th house) and SP Pluto (10th house)--all at 3-5 degrees of ego-based Leo.

(Note that Lynn Koiner's article mentions that TransPluto is in its fall in Leo, with a negative connotation of selfishness and pomposity; that in his childhood Trump's parents cruelly activated such traits and embedded his deep fear of failure ("so much winning!") is no excuse for his adult, childish, unfeeling behavior.) Of course, there are several other chart factors supporting these problems in his psyche but today the focus of this post is his TransPluto.

And so on the mundane political level of so-called Trumpism, I consider the January 12, 2020 blending of harsh Saturn and Pluto energies in governmental, Saturn-ruled Capricorn to be a cosmic echo of, or a timing device related to, Trump's SP trio of Pluto-TransPluto-Saturn. And considering that restrictive Saturn and transformative Pluto are within orb of opposing the fellow's natal Saturn (and natal Venus, too--venal Venus, so vengeful when scorned), a period of alterations, discension, separations, work-related difficulties, and the winds of destiny are suggested and may finally greet Donald Trump at the crossroads in early 2020 or later.

EDIT Jan 1, 2023: now hoping they meet at the crossroads very soon in 2023! jc
