A lot of astrologers are wiping the egg off their face this morning, and that’s not because of what they had for breakfast. As I reported in my last article, the unanimous verdict at this year’s I.S.A.R. conference on prediction was that Hillary Clinton would win the election. That, of course, did not happen.
I added my voice to this general, astrological acclamation, but at least I was open about the fact that my opinion was probably skewed by the fact that I found the idea of a Trump presidency abhorrent. I still do, but now we are all going to have to live with the abhorrent for at least four years.
Last month, at a conference held by the International Society for Astrological Research, every astrologer asked predicted that Hillary Clinton would win the election. The fact that the theme of the conference was prediction added extra weight to this judgment. According to Ray Merriman, the president of the I.S.A.R., this verdict came from astrologers of every type and technique. It was unanimous.
I have a little trouble with predictions like that because, although I know several astrologers who are staunch Republicans, I think that is safe to say that we star-gazers generally lean to the left. So, in any large group of astrologers, liberals are likely to outnumber conservatives. And, of course, Trump is a heavy load even for the conservatives among us. Considering this, even this unanimous judgment from such a group has to be taken with a grain of salt.
The New Moon as sort of shifted the narrative regarding the new Clinton emails. Instead of being all about Hillary Clinton the conversation has become more and more about F.B.I. Director, James Comey. F.B.I. directors don’t often find themselves in the political spotlight. Even J. Edgar Hoover generally did his dirty work behind the scenes. So, Comey is not in a comfortable position.
What is in question is Comey’s motivation and timing for telling Republican members of Congress about his investigation. It has been the policy of the F.B.I. not to release information about ongoing investigations, and not to release information about investigations that could sway an election. Comey broke both of these precedents when he sent his letter to congressional Republicans.
Of course, Comey was criticized last summer when he announced that there was not enough evidence to pursue criminal charges against Clinton because of the email scandal. Donald Trump and Republicans in general were very vocal in their complaints. There was apparently also a lot of grumbling within the F.B.I. among agents who are not fond of Hillary.
When I’m right, unfortunately, I’m all too right. Last week (click here to see the article) I predicted that any last minute change in the flow of the election would favor Donald Trump, and that Clinton’s campaign was in danger of being threatened by unexpected revelations. Now we have the F.B.I. announcing that they’re investigating and new trove of Clinton emails found on the server of Anthony Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin, a Clinton aide.
If I had thought about it in more detail, I probably could have predicted the day of the revelation. The announcement from the F.B.I. came as transiting Mars square transiting Uranus. It was the quincunx between Uranus and Clinton’s natal Mercury that I saw when I made the original prediction.
Meanwhile, that same Uranus is trine Donald Trump’s Sun and sextile his Moon, two positive aspects that describe sudden changes and surprises likely to benefit the person in question. Trump was already gaining on Clinton in the polls, and these revelations could well to increase that trend. For the first time in several months there seems to be a chance the Trump could be elected president.
