Following the Moon: June 18, 2022

I had expected that the big news coming out of the June 3 Full Moon chart would be economic (click here to see the article and the chart) but instead we got another Trump indictment. Unlike the last Trump indictment, which dealt with billionaire business stuff that most Americans don’t understand, this one has to do with top secret documents ladened with military secrets. That’s the sort of thing we see in movies and the interest level has risen accordingly.

One reason I thought we would see an important shift in the economy was the placement of Neptune in the Second House in the June 3 chart. However, the economic news during the past two weeks has been basically positive. Neptune seems to have showed its nebulous influence in the Russian hack of various government and business computers that was reported a couple of days ago. Since Neptune was trine Venus in that Full Moon chart, the damage from this hack seems to have been contained, but it is still a worrisome indication of how predatory the online world can be.

Neptune plays a big role in the New Moon chart for June 18 as well. (Click on New Moon to see the horoscope.) It is placed in the First House of that chart and is square the Sun and Moon. In addition, Pisces is on the Ascendant of the chart, making Neptune its ruler. Neptune obscures the facts and clothes the truth in fantasy. Neptune can be beautiful, inspirational and spiritually uplifting, but you can’t always trust what it tells you.

Robert Hanssen: The Aries SpyHanssenR Image

The death of Robert Hanssen, former F.B.I. agent and convicted spy for the Soviet Union, reminded me of the great interest I took in his horoscope back in 2001 when was arrested. Hanssen has to dubious honor of being the double agent who did the most damage to U.S. intelligence interests during his absurdly long career as a spy. He didn’t do this for political reasons. After his arrest Hanssen claimed his motive was entirely financial. However, many feel that there was another reason his 30 year campaign of betrayal. He was really pissed off.

What made Hanssen so angry was the fact that he was not promoted by the F.B.I. at a rate that he felt was commensurate with his intelligence. He was an Aries by Sun sign and, like most Aries people, he was ambitious. The fact that people who wer, in his opinion, far less brilliant than he were getting promoted over him left this Aries feeling frustrated, and there is few things more dangerous to peace and harmony than a frustrated Aries.

The New Moon chart for May 19 gave us all the tension I had expected. (Click here to see the article and the chart.) Fortunately, the positive aspects to the Sun and Moon in that chart outperformed the very negative T-square (with Mars, Pluto and Jupiter) and we got a positive outcome. The disaster of a default on the national debt was averted.

Of course, the deal came at a cost. Both progressives and MAGA conservatives have major issues some of the things that are in the bill, and some things that are not. One collateral casualty was Biden’s plan to cancel student debt, which was voted down by the Senate. This is something I should have seen coming in the May 19 chart. Jupiter was anchoring the big T-square in the Ninth House which rules higher education.

If all goes as planned the debt ceiling bill will be signed by President Biden before the Full Moon comes along tomorrow night. However, that chart makes it pretty clear that, even with the debt limit bill signed, we are not yet out of the woods. (Click on Full Moon to see the chart.)

We saw the disruptive influence of Uranus in the Full Moon chart for May 5 (click here to see the article and the chart) very early in this lunation cycle with the verdict coming down against former president Donald Trump in Jean Carroll law suit. Then, later in the lunation period, we had Congressman George Santos being indicted. I had expected surprising developments involving people in power (Uranus conjunct the MC) and these two incidents certainly fit that bill.

However, there were several other issues that I thought might be blown open by Uranus, such as the allegation against the Biden family and Justice Thomas, Donald Trump’s other court cases and the debt limit controversy, that are continuing to simmer. What those issues may be waiting for is coming up with the New Moon Chart for May 19, which is a chart loaded with ominous potential. (Click on New Moon to see the chart.)
