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.
