Robert Mueller in 2018MuellerImage

Since I’ve examined what Donald Trump has to look forward to in 2018, I thought it only fair to also look at the aspects that will impacting the horoscope of his chief adversary during this period. That would be special prosecutor, Robert Mueller. Since we don’t have a time of birth for Mueller I’m using a chart done for noon on his date of birth. (Click on Robert Mueller to see the chart.)


What’s going on right now in Mueller’s horoscope is an opposition by transiting Neptune to his natal Mercury. This is an aspect that has been going on for some time but it is currently making its last pass. Mercury has to do with our thinking and ability to reason. It also represents the things we say and how we say them.


Every since Mueller was appointed special prosecutor in charge of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election President Trump has called his efforts a “witch hunt.” More recently Trump and his various surrogates have raised doubts about Mueller’s objectivity and motivation in the investigation. These doubts have spread to the entire F.B.I. and the Dept. of Justice.


When Neptune opposes Mercury it is not unusual for there to be criticism of our reasoning and problem-solving ability. It is often a period in which we have difficulty finding a focal point and seem awash in information and ideas. Expressing ourselves in a clear and direct way is hard and emotional issues, either our own or those of other people, can obscure our real meaning and purpose.


I think it’s safe to say that this is where Robert Mueller’s thinking is right now, with the anti-Trump folks crying for blood on one side and the pro-Trump people yelling for him to “put up or shut up”.  He’s wading through a huge accumulation of information, claims and counter-claims and trying to keep his investigation above the heated emotions and expectations that surrounds it.


The good news for Mueller is this Neptune aspect is in the midst of its final crescendo. By the end of this month Neptune will be speeding away from its opposition to his Mercury and making way for another important transit that’s set to hit his horoscope for the first time in February. That is the opposition of Saturn to his natal Saturn.


This is one of the Saturn Cycle aspects that I talk about so much. Saturn Cycle aspects are not always pleasant. They are sort of the pop quizzes of the universe and if you haven’t done your homework these transits can wreck havoc. However, one thing that Saturn Cycle aspects can be counted on to do is to bring clarity. For better or worse, they let you and everyone around you know exactly where you stand.


It is my personal feeling that Robert Mueller is a person who has done his homework, and I don’t think he has anything to fear from Saturn’s pop quiz. So what this Saturn aspect will represent to him is the necessity to do what he was meant to do. The aspect hits (comes within a degree) first in February, then again in June and finally in November. In other words, it’s going to cover pretty much the entire year. And it will be a year in which Mueller will be called upon to prove his mettle and answer the challenges put before him. How he does all that is not only going to be interesting, it will make history.
