January 27, 2017 Weekend Ricksterscope

5R’s – Incredible to 1R – Awful

The Moon is transiting the sign of friendship oriented and humanitarian Aquarius as the weekend begins on Friday. Our freedom is important to us today, and our more unique qualities surface. Transiting Venus (in Pisces) squares transiting Saturn (in Sagittarius) early in the morning on Friday. Some folks could be a bit down in the dumps and/or experiencing some relationship problems. Late afternoon (on the West Coast), we experience the New Moon in Aquarius and we get a chance at a new beginning in some way. The Moon trines transiting Jupiter (in Libra) during the evening hours on Saturday. There is a sense of joy and relationship bliss in the air. The Moon moves into sensitive and intuitive Pisces early in the morning on Sunday. We tend to intuit information then. However, transiting Mercury (in Capricorn) conjoins transiting Pluto just after Noon on Sunday. At that point, we want the truth and nothing but the truth.

Astrology And Politics: Written Laws And Unwritten Laws

I’ve been thinking a great deal about written laws (Jupiter) vs. unwritten laws (Neptune) as it pertains to our current political situation and our current PEOTUS (now POTUS) Donald Trump. Trump has been an agent of change as is indicated in his natal chart with natal Uranus conjunct natal Sun. One of those changes is that he has pretty much ignored many unwritten laws or rules on his way to the White House. He has ignored the long standing tradition of presidential candidates disclosing their federal income tax returns to the public. The public (for the most part) believes this to be the law, but it’s not (federal or state - that could be changing). Last year during the presidential campaigns, we experienced transiting Jupiter (the law) opposite transiting Neptune (unwritten law), and with transiting Saturn (reality) squaring both from Sagittarius. In Trump’s natal chart, Mercury is in a square aspect to Neptune. Trump’s natal Mercury is conjunct the nation’s natal Jupiter. The nation’s progressed Sun is in Pisces, and transiting Neptune has been conjunct the nation’s progressed Sun (leader) as it transits close to eleven and a half degrees Pisces.

And, now Trump is threatening to break written laws (because the POTUS is not subject to certain conflicts of interests laws, according to Trump). He is pretty much planning to break the Emoluments Clause in the US Constitution. Most presidents-elect divest of their financial investments - ones that could cause conflicts of interest with performing the duties of POTUS unencumbered by personal financial interests. Transiting Pluto is now squaring Trump’s natal Jupiter. This aspect can give one the idea or impression that he or she is above the law. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, because transiting Saturn is also in opposition to Trump’s natal Sun right now. We don’t usually get away with breaking rules or laws under such astrological configurations.

Miscellaneous Astrological Musings - 01/13/17

Ft. Lauderdale International Airport Shooting:

Just before 1:00 PM EST on January 6, 2017, a young man opened fire in the luggage claim area of the Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood International Airport. Five people were killed, and six others were wounded. The following are a few observations that I’ve made after looking at the chart of the event.

The Sun/Pluto (death in the light of day) conjunction on that date is found in the ninth house of the event chart - the house of air travel and airports. It is also the house of foreign or out of state people. All of the victims in this shooting were from out of state; there were no local victims. Most were there on vacation and were about to embark on various cruises. Transiting Uranus is squaring the Sun/Pluto conjunction from the twelfth house of death and loss. The attack occurred suddenly and without warning.

Saturn is found in the eighth house of death. All of the victims were older persons with the youngest person’s age at 57. Transiting Mars in Pisces is in a square aspect to Saturn from the eleventh house of groups of people. The shooting took place in baggage claim where numerous people were present. Mars is conjunct transiting Neptune in the chart, and the shooter is a Pisces (ruled by Neptune). Ft. Lauderdale is a coastal city, and the Atlantic Ocean is nearby.

Asteroid Ceres is conjunct the transiting Moon in the twelfth house of death and loss in this chart. This symbolizes the intense emotional grief caused by the loss of loved ones in the event.

Senator Dianne Feinstein Gets A Pacemaker

Senator Dianne Feinstein had a medical procedure on January 10, 2017 to have a pacemaker inserted into her heart. The procedure went well and she was back at work in the Senate the next day.

Senator Feinstein was born June 22, 1933 at 12:44 AM in San Francisco, California. Her natal Sun (the heart) is just barely in Cancer (0 degrees and 28 minutes). Transiting Mercury was in opposition to her natal Sun on the day of the procedure (making its third pass to that area as Mercury had been retrograding). Virgo (Mercury ruled) is on the Senator’s sixth house of health. The Moon conjoined her natal Sun on the 10th as well. Transiting Chiron (the wounded healer) has been transiting in opposition to her natal Mars in the sixth house for some time. Her progressed Jupiter is in a square aspect to her natal Sun. Hopefully, this resolves any difficulty she is having.
