James Comey Gets Fired

Today, in a move that left just about everyone paying attention to politics aghast, Donald Trump fired the head of the F.B.I., James Comey. Comey has long been a controversial figure. Back in March, when Comey categorically denied that there was any basis for Trump’s accusations that the Obama administration had “tapped” his phones during the election, I proposed the question: “Is James Comey the Anti-Trump?” At the time I felt that this was an over-statement. (Click here to see that article.)

Comey’s Sun (click here to see a chart done for noon on his birthday) is directly opposite Trump’s Sun and conjunct his Moon, so obviously there is an astrological link between them. Also, Comey’s Uranus is conjunct Trump’s Mars, indicating that Comey is seen by Trump as a disruptive factor. The President gave as his reason for firing Comey was his handling of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails. Since Trump crowed about Comey’s remarks in this regard throughout his campaign, this rings false and many people are looking for other motivations.

Chief among these “other” motivations is the F.B.I. investigation into links between the Trump campaign and efforts by Russian hackers to influence the 2016 elections in Trump’s favor. Such links would not just be criminal, they would be treason of the highest order. If Trump’s reason for firing Comey was not a sudden bout of guilt over the way the Director’s statements helped him get elected, then it seems almost a surety it was because this investigation was getting too close to the White House for comfort.

Looking at Comey’s transits for today, the closest aspect was a quincunx between both transiting Mercury and Uranus and Comey’s natal Mercury. This is certainly an aspect for surprising news, so it seems likely that Comey was taken off-guard. (In fact, he was not even in Washington at the time.) However, the quincunx aspect represents inconclusive results. So Comey is probably unsure how he should react. What Comey does in response to this sudden turn of events is going to be interesting.

That brings us back to the conjunction between Comey’s Uranus and Trump’s Mars. What this connection tells us is that Comey will continue to be a disruptive agent in Trump’s life regardless of his job title. Actually, Comey does not have to make any kind of response. Just the fact that he was fired when he was fired speaks volumes. Back in March I was pretty sure that James Comey, F.B.I. Director would not become the Anti-Trump, but now that we have James Comey, former F.B.I. Director I’m beginning to reconsider.
