The Mueller Report Lands on AmericaMuellerImage

I had predicted that Robert Mueller would release his report during the period when Neptune opposed his Mars. When the news broke yesterday that the report had been released, both Neptune and Mercury were opposite Mars in Mueller’s chart. With Neptune nothing is ever clear cut or definite and, initially, Mueller’s report seems to present us with more questions than answers.

The fact that Mueller recommended no further indictments surprised a lot of Trump’s foes. Meanwhile, there is the question of how the Justice Dept. and its new boss, will handle the report. Many are calling for the report to be made public which seems to be a good idea. However, that would open the way for people on both sides to place their own interpretations on Mueller’s findings.

My guess is that, with Neptune opposite his Mars, attacks on the substance of the report will quickly become attacks on Robert Mueller and his integrity. Since this aspect will repeat in the fall, those attacks, and the ramification of his report, will continue to be a major factor for the rest of this year.

Following the Moon: March 20, 2019

Let me start off with a couple of things I got wrong with my reading of the New Moon on Mar. 6. (Click here to see that article and the chart.) I had hoped that the dominance of “good” aspects in that chart predicted the end of the extreme weather events that have punctuated this winter but instead we got another major winter storm, tornadoes in Alabama and flooding in the Midwest. Also, I was afraid the near conjunction of Saturn to Pluto in Capricorn might cause problems in our economy. However, it appears that we’re going to have to wait until the aspect completes in Jan. 2020 for that.

The Mar. 6 chart was a quiet chart and, at least in this country, the past two weeks have been relatively quiet. (The terrorist attack in New Zealand is, of course, another matter and another chart.) The major political event was the Senate rejecting Trump’s state of emergency but since they don’t have the votes to override his veto, there wasn’t much substance to that rare act to Republican gumption.

I think the conjunction of the Sun and Moon to Neptune in that New Moon chart has to do with the entry of Beto O’Rourke into the race for the 2020 Democratic nomination. O’Rourke represents a Democratic dream candidate in that he’s a younger, charismatic moderate with a common touch and schoolboy looks. Of course, the thing about Neptunian dreams is that they don’t always survive in the light of day.

The Contenders: John Delaney and Andrew YangDelaneyYangImage

Just when I thought I was through with this series I realized that I had missed a few contenders who announced their candidacy some time ago. Two of them, John Delaney and Andrew Yang, are primarily entrepreneurs who have decided parlay their success in business into a political glory.

John Delaney made his money by arranging loans to small, health care companies and other underserved borrowers. His business was recognized for it’s investment in distressed communities.  He ran for congress in 2012 and won. In July 2017 Delaney announced that he was running for president.

Delaney’s horoscope clearly describes an entrepreneur. (Click on John Delaney to see a partial horoscope done or noon on Delaney’s date of birth.) He’s an Aries by Sun sign with his Sun trine Uranus. He definitely a guy who’s willing to take risks. At the same time, however, he has Mercury in Taurus and the Moon in Capricorn, so his risk-taking is always tied to a firm awareness of profit and loss.

The Contenders: Beto O’Rourke

I wrote about Beto O’Rourke last year. (Click here to see that article and a partial horoscope for O’Rourke.) Since we do not have a time of birth for O’Rourke, I focused on the combination of his Sun sign (Libra) and his Moon sign (Taurus) as it is described in my book “Father Sun, Mother Moon: Astrology’s Dynamic Duo.”

However, now that I have looked at the charts of some of the other contenders, I can draw some comparisons. For example, it is interesting that both Joe Biden and O’Rourke have three planets aspected by Jupiter. Biden has Mercury, the Sun and Venus trine Jupiter and O’Rourke has Mars, Pluto and the Sun square Jupiter.

As I said in the article on Biden, this is a natural aspect for a glad-handing, always-happy-to-meet-you politician. I heard someone describe Biden as a master of “retail”, one-on-one politics. O’Rourke has the same gift. The fact that his aspect to Jupiter is a square provides more tension and a maybe a little bit too much self-confidence. On the other hand, with the Sun in friendly Libra, O’Rourke’s version of retail politics is more about charm and less about shoulder rubs.
