Trump and the 1973 Eclipse of the Saturday Night Massacre

Richard Nixon's firing of Special Prosecutor Archibald Cox Jr (1912--2004) in what came to be called Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre is being too well evoked by the current circumstances surrounding Donald Trump under threat by the Mueller investigation. Since history tends to rhyme, let's consider a potential 'time link' between the Prenatal Solar Eclipse of Nixon's action and the natal planets of Mr. Trump (June 14, 1946 10:54 am Queens, NY) since eclipses provide a handy time frame in which to place and investigate historical events and their effect or influence upon individuals. And with Solar Eclipses, their themes chime in with further details of the cosmic weather of the period.

Nixon's firing of Archibald Cox was finally achieved when Robert Bork (1927--2012) agreed to do the deed. The firing of the Special Prosecutor was announced on the evening of October 20, 1973 at 8:24 pm, White House, according to contemporary news reports. A chart set for this date, hour, and location shows US natal Uranus (8Gem55) rising--our totem planet of war and rebellion and suggesting sudden or erratic actions. Aldebaran also rises (success through integrity), plus, an immediate time link to Trump is apparent for this is the degree of Trump's own Prenatal Solar Eclipse (and his Syzygy Moon) in the 2 Old North Saros Series which repeats July 13, 2018 @20Cancer41 (conjunct starry Castor with its potentials for sudden loss, crippling of limbs, murder). 2 Old North is a difficult series with themes of 'unfortunate news concerning relationships, separation, the ending of unions, and glum looking situations which can turn out quite positively (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology). Or not especially if mishandled (jc).

Richard M. Nixon January 9, 1913 9:35 pm PST Whittier, California; ASC 17Vir14; MC 16Gemo3; Sun 19Cap24, Moon 20AQ07

The October 20, 1973 'firing' chart also shows Nixon's natal Pluto (28Gem39 Rx), planet of power and manipulation, as the first of his n planets to rise along with two difficult midpoints (Saturn-MC and Saturn-Pluto which describe his cumbersome and difficult conditions). But troubles are often self-created--and these disturbing events occurred during the years in which yours truly resided in Washington DC. In the 'firing' chart for Mr. Trump, his natal trio of Uranus-NN-Sun is first to rise with Uranus his oriental or guiding planet of erratic behavior and chaos. He's Mr. Unpredictable!

As for the Prenatal Solar Eclipse of Nixon's Saturday Night Massacre, it was Total and manifested in the 11 South Saros Series on June 30, 1973 @8Can31--conjunct the natal Mercury of Donald Trump who had just turned 27 at the time but had a good two years to go until his first Saturn Return (23Can48). Themes of 11 South are harrowing and have activated multiple negative events through the years: 'old ideas and methods will fail, new systems are required to deal with events brought by the eclipse, reforms are needed, new ideas for handling issues, any blocks could be violently or tragically removed' (Brady). However, 11 South won't repeat until August 2, 2027 @10Leo--conjunct the natal Pluto of Donald Trump.

Now there are massive amounts of information in all these charts, natal and otherwise, but since this is a post not a book, I'll simply mention that the 1973 PE horoscope also shows that it manifested during an Hour of an unaspected Jupiter (10AQ41 Rx). This suggests erroneous judgment, a lack of buoyancy in affairs, and Nixon's detached 'ivory tower' existence. Yes, I remember well the tales going around the city of his drunken wanderings through White House halls, muttering at portraits. But I've yet to hear whether or not the portraits talked back--but if they did, I wonder if Crooked Dick took their advice.

Horoscope: The Vietnam War August 4, 1964

September 17, 2017: In a 10-part, 18-hour documentary, the Vietnam War receives the Ken Burns and Lynn Novick treatment beginning tonight on PBS. Below is the horoscope for the start of the Vietnam War set for the alleged assault (pretext) of the second Gulf of Tonkin incident. The resolution giving President Johnson authority for use of force was voted on in Congress and passed the House by a vote of 416 - 0 and the Senate 88 - 2.

The two senators who voted against the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution were Wayne Morse and Alaska's Ernest Groenig. "When the resolution passed, Morse declared that Congress had surrendered its authority, and therefore the authority of the people it was elected to serve. Morse also deplored the open-ended nature of the approval and condemned Congress for giving the President and the military a “blank check” which would be cashed with taxpayer’s money and citizens’ lives."

And as my generation has known for decades, Senator Morse was all too correct, wasn't he? For more info, see The Wayne Morse Center. And here's another source of information on the Vietnam War.

So here is the Vietnam War horoscope set for August 4, 1964 at 21:30 -7:00 (9:30 pm USZ6 -7:00) at Vinh, Vietnam, the naval base from which the alleged assault on a US ship was launched. Please enlarge to read chart notes which include an unaspected Jupiter (Jupiter The General, large amounts of money, financiers, politicians, etc). The Great Benefic's unaspected condition denotes those who are disconnected from moral or religious standards, live an 'Ivory tower' existence, but are zealous toward the matters of Jupiter's house--here, the 2nd house of Money and, in the US, our National Treasury, from which the funds for weapons and war issued, thanks to US taxpayers (see Senator Morse's statement, above).

When North Vietnamese troops entered Saigon, capital of South Vietnam, on April 30, 1975, the Vietnam War came to an end. On that date, Venus @19Gemini27 was unaspected, a 'wallflower' condition for the usually sociable Venus. This condition of Venus suggests unusual perspectives, sporadic or unrestrained expressions, and an obsessive single-mindedness. Another April 30, 1975 cosmic condition of interest is karmic Saturn @13Can54 conjunct US natal Sun (POTUS = Nixon). This repressive transit indicates a time of disappointment, discouragement, and resentment toward limitations, rules, and regulations. It marks a period when past mistakes must be corrected so that moving forward is possible, aka, making karmic progress.

Tragically, through subsequent wars and their flimsy pretexts, Congress' continued negligence of its war-declaration duties and shady money management, Pentagon and CIA shadow activities, fear-mongering propaganda against We The People, and Washington's obvious plundering and global conquest obsessions, we see that 'the powers that think they be' (Max Igan's phrase) continue their Ivory Tower existences while perverting the course of our nation as 'global cop' and lining their pockets via several means including the racket that is war.

War Profiteering

Besides the Vietnam War's Jupiter in a Money house (and fraudulent Neptune in the 8th house of Corporations and Big Business), note that the IC (Foundation, Basis, the HOW? point, The Drain) of the war chart reveals, as you see, America's natal Jupiter @6Cancer: "Game Birds Feathering Their Nests" (Jones).

2 New North: Collapse of 'The Tower'

One more prominent chart factor to note is the Prenatal Solar Eclipse (PE) series under which this particular hell of war was unleashed, the 2 New North, which manifested @17Cancer27 (4th house) on July 9, 1964. Themes of 2 New North, also called 'The Tower' (see Tarot card #16) are: changes of direction, sudden collapse of plans, lifestyles, and/or an existing structure; confusion reigns but after the dust settles, reshaping and rebuilding have far-reaching effects (Predictive Astrology, B.Brady).

Also note that unaspected Jupiter is apex planet of a midpoint picture--the karmic Sun-Saturn pair = Jupiter: break-up of a value system (Tyl), plus, Jupiter @23Tau28 conjoins the difficult cluster in Perseus, Capulus ('the sword hand of Perseus'- Devore), star of intense male energy, blindness, turbulence, ruthlessness, penetrating action (Brady's Fixed Stars). Capulus is partner to the intense feminine star, Algol.

The last occurrence of 2 New North was @8Leo on July 31, 2000 (not quite 9/11's PE, but obviously still of influence). The next occurrence is @19Leo on August 11, 2018; 19Leo is a sensitized degree from the King of Alarm Solar Eclipse of August 11, 1999, aka, the 'Nostradamus Eclipse' with its mid-degreed Fixed Grand Cross as described in the Scriptures' Book of Revelation. And on 9/11/01, transiting Venus activated the 19Leo degree and thus 1999's King of Alarm Eclipse.
