William Barr Under PressureBarrWmImage

What are we to think of William Barr? One the one hand, he has openly used his office as Attorney General to do the bidding of President Donald Trump. On the other, he bemoans the way Trump tweets out his opinions about what Barr and the Dept. of Justice should be doing. Barr has recently gone so far as to say that the President’s behavior makes it hard for him to do his job.

Of course, Barr is a Gemini by Sun sign (just like his boss) and it’s not unusual for Geminis to vacillate between two or more points of view. However, the real reason for Barr’s sudden display of moral fortitude might have more to do with the fact that he is a Gemini Sun with the Moon in Leo. (Click on William Barr to see a horoscope for him done for noon on his date of birth.)

In my book, “Father Sun, Mother Moon: Astrology’s Dynamic Duo” I say of this combination of the Sun and Moon: “The opinions of your peers are important to you. You need praise and applause.” Though Attorney General Barr has made a show of not caring about what people, or at least Democrats in Congress, think about what he’s doing, it appears that he is sensitive to the way he has been characterized as Trump’s lap dog at the D.O.J. His recent complaints and the rumor that he has offered to resign are his way of countering that criticism, even while his behavior provide further proof that it is true.

Right now in Barr’s horoscope, transiting Pluto is trine his natal Mars. Even though the aspect is considered helpful, this is not an easy transit. Anytime that Pluto and Mars get together there is pressure. You feel locked in and frustrated. This can lead to extreme behaviors and desperate actions. The fact that the aspect is a trine indicates that the pressure Barr is feeling is not existential. It is more-or-less self-imposed. Trump is not going to fire him. But Barr still feels the need to do something dramatic.

Pluto moves slowly and this aspect is going to be with William Barr for the rest of his year. This indicates that we can expect more of this two-sided behavior from him in the coming months. Interestingly, the trine continues continues into 2021. So, even if Donald Trump loses the election in November, Barr is going to still be feeling pressured only, with a different person in the White House, that pressure might be more real.
