Donald Trump, President of USA and Statue of Liberty

Surreal” was the Webster’s Dictionary word of 2016. It is defined as “marked by the intense irrational reality of a dream.” They also give as its synonyms unbelievable and fantastic. [1]

President Trump’s 100th day in office is Saturday, April 30. The Inauguration chart Midheaven was aligned with Trump’s natal Pluto, planet most representing over-arching power and control, as in Dictatorship. In these weeks and months, the political events have continued to be beyond belief in the many ways the new administration represents the theme of ‘power my way’.

The Senate is pretending to save the government from its debt ceiling. Yet, the astrological picture today, April 27, 2017, suggests that we all should be suspicious of what is really going on behind the scenes in this surreal act of political theatrics. Venus, ruler of money and values is very slow of motion, about to return into Aries, but now is at 29 degrees Pisces with the fixed star Sheat, known for association with “ship wrecks, storms and drownings.”[2] Venus’ condition which is threatened, weak, and struggling to stay afloat, suggests financial matters are in a dangerous situation that prompts leadership to “take protective action.”

The Sun is now in Taurus, strongly influenced by Venus’ condition, The Sun is with the fixed star, Hamal, in the Ram’s horn. “It gives a tendency to rush idealistically head long into situations being vain glorious, self-promoting and lacking diplomacy.”[3] This star is related to “violent expressions of hatred, intolerance, attempts to exterminate, annihilate unwanted peoples, massacres, fires, plane crashes.”[4]

The Moon is passing through the territory of the fixed star Algol, known as an evil star associated with beheadings, war, mass murder, violence, assassination, mass disasters, fires, plagues, storms, shipwrecks, mob violence, in short, any event in which many die or are killed brutally.”[5]

This is a time when big events are brewing. There is a provocative energy lurking under the Sun’s beams stirring the potential for war. The news that is tweeted from the President has a design to influence public beliefs. The propaganda is intended to generate fear, anger, and reaction. They call it a Tweet Storm.

Mercury, the messenger is about to complete its retrograde phase and is conjoined with revolutionary Uranus. The message is to stir the revolt. Be aware that the message has dual meanings and may have covert intentions for misleading the public in what to believe. Mercury stations direct on May 3rd. This will be a turning point for the political dialogue. Mercury maintains contact to Uranus through May 13 because, at this point in its cycle it has extremely slow motion. This energy gets people excited and builds tension. It’s the energy of demonstrations, strikes, and civil disobedience, requiring greater public protections, like martial law. Something like the 1970’s when Nixon made war on Cambodia, enacting the Draft. The student protests that followed swept the nation resulting in martial law and increased domestic security. Remember Kent State, May 4, 1970.
