Total Solar Eclipse, the USA and War

The day of the Great American Total Solar Eclipse is the day Trump spoke for his administration’s decision to send additional American troops to Afghanistan. The Total Solar Eclipse activated Trump’s natal Mars, because the planet is within a few degrees of where the eclipse fell. Mars is High Focus when Rising and in a Conjunction with the Ascendant. In its normal function, the keyword for Mars is INITIATIVE, but when in High Focus the keyword becomes INDOMITABLE. This non-stoppable drive is something that the public has witnessed in Trump’s character for some time, but now that he is in a position of real power it can cause shock waves across the globe. Leaders of countries worldwide must take the President’s words seriously.

When initiatives are set in motion, counter-actions from resisting individuals or groups can block the direction of energies coming from the original source. This is when confrontations can escalate into full-fledged war between contending entities. Mars means war only when initiatives are frustrated. Otherwise Mars merely means, starting to put energy behind an idea. Setting things in action. 

North Korea poses a threat to its neighbors and to the United States because its nuclear initiatives bode ill in a world that wishes to keep a balance of peace among nations. From September 2nd to the 6th, 2017, transit Mars and Transit Station Mercury joined in Conjunction at 29 degrees Leo where the recently Solar Eclipse took place. In these few days the conflict with North Korea’s missile testings accelerated the rhetoric within the US that is a block to the ambitions of the young North Korean leader. Mars’ signature is written all over this potential catastrophe, in the fact of Trump’s Mars being activated by the Solar Eclipse and the Transits of Mars and “supportive” Mercury. But the likelihood of outright war is also evident in the chart of the United States.

Transit Saturn has been making an Opposition Aspect with the US natal  Mars since late December 2016 and early January 2017 when Trump was inaugurated the 45th President of the United States. At this time, Transit Saturn was making a Conjunction with the President’s natal Moon, which also Opposes his natal Sun, because of its natal Sun/Moon Opposition. This means that Trump’s Sun is in Conjunction with the US natal Mars. This configuration is a powerful stress upon the core dynamic between the two entities of the United States populace and its surrogate leader President Trump. And Transit Saturn has been prodding the promise of war especially at the time of its Station at 21:11 Sagittarius on August 26th. It is another supportive indication of imminent danger shown primarily by the Solar Eclipse that crossed the continental United States. It will be interesting to see what takes place when Transit Venus visits 29 degrees Leo on September 19th and 20th.

The group of planets circled on the left of the chart show Trump’s natal Mars eclipsed on August 21, in Opposition to the US natal Moon. The US Moon, representing the populace, is directly engaged with the indomitable actions of a president who is not shy of touting his erratic, unpredictable urges off-the-cuff, toward enemies national and international.

A solar eclipse is a Super-New Moon. It is a time to “plant seeds” for significant change in the daily pattern of our lives. Light is not the only influence the Sun and Moon have on living things. All heavenly bodies exude an electromagnetic field, which has its influence on other heavenly spheres and life in general. These invisible energies are activated in mysterious ways through interactions of the planets, the Sun and Moon, asteroids and other significant points represented symbolically in astrological charts.

Eclipses are strongest when near or opposite a planet in the horoscope. All other influences are general and are associated with the meaning of the houses where the eclipse falls.
An eclipse can indicate the end and rebirth of behavioral patterns hidden deep within the psyche. When drawing the substance of the unconscious into the sphere of the conscious mind, through meditation or breathwork, a natural catharsis can take place that clears outmoded content. Through courageous observation of personal issues, the need for transformation can be fulfilled. The theme of the crises to be cleared is determined by which houses the solar and lunar eclipses fall in your personal horoscope.

It is not an accident that the Sun and Moon are at the distances where when they are in line with the Earth that the diameter of their disks are the same size. This strategic alignment produces a powerful thrust of energy toward the Earth that motivates a comprehensive evolution of all matter. A solar eclipse occurs twice a year, along with a lunar eclipse either before or after. These are one of the most profound astronomical and astrological events that influence our lives, although there are many other significant celestial occurrences that promote great change.

The shadow of the moon travels the surface of the Earth and marks the countries and the people designated for reorientation. The current eclipse in the astrological sign of Leo represents the heart center and effects the way that we as individuals interact with others and where we express ourselves as unique beings separate from the collective. It is a time to acknowledge the shadows within that await the light of conscious day to be resolved through Love, as one of the features of spiritual enlightenment ruled by the sign Leo.

LEO 29 A mermaid This is a symbol of humanity’s insatiable appetite for experience on the side of psychological self-assurance, and of the nascent eagerness of the soul for a private and personal participation in every possible facet of self-fulfillment. There is an ineradicable purity of man’s make-up at core, and in consequence an ultimate repudiation of all the compromises which seem to be demanded in everyday relationships. The individual forever seeks and responds to the creative needs of life itself. The keyword is IMPORTUNITY. When positive, the degree is a completeness of quickening to inner instincts of the being and a real willingness to trust them, and when negative, a lack of discrimination and an awkward insensitivity.

US Progressed Stationary Direct Mercury Happening Now

Here’s a link to HUFFPOST about Trump’s father being a member of the KKK.…/our-commander-in-chief-and-…

And here’s a little known fact about the astrological aspects now active in the US chart: Many astrologers know about the coming Pluto Return, but no one I have read or heard has mentioned the present Progressed Station of Mercury! Yes, I am talking about the PROGRESSED not the present Transit Mercury that commenced on August 12, 2017. Progressed Stations are a big deal, and multiplies the forces for change that the Total Eclipse on August 21 will usher in.

Just count 241 days from July 4, 1776-1777 in the ephemeris and you will see the D standing for Direct for the Mercury of the US chart. Stations in Progressions are a profound but much overlooked source of planetary influence. And this one effects all Americans and the world. We’re in for big change, as if no one noticed.😉

The Station Direct takes place at 21 degrees Aquarius, Sabian Symbol: A woman disappointed and disillusioned. And there is plenty of that going on now in both political parties.

AQUARIUS 21 A woman disappointed and disillusioned This is a symbol of the inevitable distress of the human soul whenever it seeks any enduring entertainment from elements without anchorage in its own nature, dramatized in the negative symbolism by the futility of its attempted fulfillment through a capitalization on purely physical assets of self. The deeper potentials of the being afford the real possibilities of self-discovery, and personal frustrations are a challenge to a genuine self-realization rather than a denial of opportunity. The keyword is CLEARANCE. When positive, the degree is the self’s inherent gift for pressing on and gaining increased powers with every setback, and when negative, the acceptance of all defeat as final.

Simon & Garfunkel Revisited

The Sound of Silence was Simon and Garfunkel’s first major hit. Looking at the development of their talents that were fused together through two-part harmony executing extraordinary lyrics brings the early 1960’s into focus. The tri-wheel chart features Paul Simon in the center wheel, Art Garfunkel in the middle, with Simon’s Progressions in the outer ring. Since Simon was the composer of the two, he has the honors of being the center focus with Artie’s (as Paul calls him) planets compared to his.  Continue reading

Trump’s Transits and Progressions August 2017 and Forward . . .

The surrogate horoscope for the people of the United States: Donald Trump’s upcoming Progressions and Transits point the way.

Trump’s Progressed Uranus is inching toward his natal Sun. This creates an uneasiness and continuously unpredictable state of affairs for himself and the nation for which he is the leader. Progressed Uranus is also in an exact Opposition to his natal Moon where Transit Saturn is poised to make a Stationary Direct Conjunction on August 26 2017. Transit Saturn will activate his natal Moon/Sun Opposition from the other end. This tense and intense standoff of planets dominates the present political landscape, and adds to the already ominous signs of change that the Total Solar Eclipse “promises” the nation and world. Progressed Uranus urges Trump to act on his own, independent of all outside influences, while Transit Saturn obligates him to be sensitive to the people’s wishes and be responsible for the welfare of those to whom he is in charge.  Continue reading

Watergate, Bob Woodward and Nixon’s Resignation

Bob Woodward, a reporter for the Washington Post in 1972, was the first to report on the Watergate scandal. Although Carl Bernstein had an equal part in the reporting of Watergate, and in the writing of the book All the President’s Men, his birth chart is not shown here because his time of birth is unknown. A chart can be analyzed without the birth time, however the Ascendant, placement of the planets in the houses, and the exact Moon degree will not be reliable. Continue reading

The United States, Nixon and Trump – Compared

In US news reports the Trump administration has been compared to that of Nixon’s administration and Watergate. It would be interesting to compare the horoscopes of the two presidents to see if they have something in common astrologically. An examination of charts with synastry techniques includes locating planets that are either in the same degree or opposite each other across the wheel within no more than 2 degrees orb of separation. The charts of organizations and nations can also be compared with the charts of individuals.

The tri-wheel chart here shows Trump’s planets in the inner wheel, Nixon’s in the middle wheel and the US chart in the outer wheel. The connecting Aspect that the three charts share in common is an exact Conjunction of Nixon’s Neptune with the US Mercury, and both of these “sandwiched” between Trump’s Venus and Saturn. Nixon’s Neptune and the US Mercury are in the same Sabian Symbol degree that has been discussed elsewhere on this blog, but for convenience sake and because this particular degree is significant in its reference to leadership and power, it is shown here as well.

Comey Testifies Before the Senate – How Trump Fits into the Picture

The world is watching, or at least Americans will be, as James Comey testifies before the Senate Intelligence Committee, June 8, 2017. It is certain he will be quite candid and divulge more than others witnesses have recently, because there are several planetary aspects to his natal horoscope that suggest it will be a dynamic morning. It will be interesting to know what other shoes will drop from the centipede Donald Trump nurtures every day on Twitter and behind the scenes in the Oval Office. Continue reading

August 21st Total Eclipse & US Destiny – a Prognosis

A horoscope set up for the time of the inauguration of a nation will define its underlying potentials and characteristics. The Transits and Progressions to that chart track the ongoing developments of the psyche of the populous identified with that nation.

The chart of the leader of a country is also taken into account, with the Transits, Progressions and Eclipses pointing to the issues of current concern for the people. The leader or president of a country is the surrogate of the people and in that way the citizens of that country experience the benefits and challenges that are marked off in the leader’s horoscope and its dynamic aspects.

August 21st, 26th and 31st are game-changing dates astrologically for the United States because of Aspects coming to fruition in The US chart and that of the chart of its president, Donald Trump. The four to eight years an individual spends as a country’s leader work together with the intricacies of the nation’s chart. Aspects active in both the surrogate and the nation’s charts are powerful indicators of the challenges and developments the country must experience for its ongoing sustainability. There are several upcoming planetary influences to consider as agents of the molding of America.

The shadow of the Total Solar Eclipse of August 11, 1999 darkened a path through Europe and Asia and the effects for Europe was the adoption of the Euro to tie the countries together monetarily. The Euro that now links those previously independent countries has an ease of more than open borders, but with common currency as well. The coming August 21, 2017 Total Solar Eclipse will send a shadow across the United States from the Northern Pacific to the coast of South Carolina. The question is, what will be the effects on mainland USA? Unlike Europe, can we expect that the United States as we know it will break up into separate States, since it is already united? Actually, the country is already divided in political terms, as the two major parties are at extreme odds with each other. Will the Republicans and Democrats join forces and coalesce to support what now appears a shaky administration? Or will we continue down the partisan trail toward ultimate self-destruction? The eclipse of August 21 will force these issues to a point of recognition and resolution, because the eclipse traverses the entire mainland USA.

What does the eclipse have to offer its people through the chart of its surrogate leader Donald Trump?

The congressional and independent council investigations continue to probe into the facts surrounding Russia’s involvement in the 2016 US presidential election. There is the question of the validity of collusion with Russia and campaign associates to effect a favorable outcome for Trump, and although information is dripping steadily out for public consumption, there is still the Total Solar Eclipse waiting in the August wings to take the stage and reveal more truth.

A solar eclipse has its greatest effects on an individual or nation when it conjoins a sensitive point such as a planet, node or meridian of a horoscope. In the surrogate horoscope of Donald Trump, the total eclipse, exact at 28 Leo 50 on August 21, 2017, will be positioned directly on his Ascendant if using his chart time of 10:54 am. If that time is not correct, the eclipse still has a powerful Conjunct with Trump’s natal Mars. An eclipse has a 5 degree allowable orb.

The Ascendant is the indicator of one’s physical stamina, specifically the head and the heart when Mars is in Leo. It also points to one’s personal horizon or perspective on life with a selective view toward all issues in general. Trump is at ease when allowed to express himself without restraint, which is a Leo trait. There are no Squares or Oppositions to natal Mars, so he finds no inner conflict to his own Indomitable approach, and very little direct confrontation from others concerning it. Leo is the sign of Assurance, and that can manifest as self-confidence to a fault. Trump’s dominating attitude overpowers any assault from without, and the controversy he deals with comes from indirect innuendo or statements through intermediaries. A strong Mars on the Ascendant then, protects his personal opinions and solipsistic approach to issues. Buttressed by a Sextile of the Sun and a Trine from natal Moon, it is likely he will fare well under most challenges to any hypocrisy or aggression he may display.

A mere 10 days after the eclipse, August 31, 2017, Trump will experience a Mars Return at 26 Leo 47. Natal planets on one’s Ascendant become High Focus and this changes the keyword for Mars from INITIATIVE to INDOMITABLE. What normally would indicate a person intent on just pushing ahead, has escalated their action into an unstoppable force. This is well understood by those who attempt to influence Trump in regards to his sometimes controversial behavior, activities and policies. The Mars Return could set off some sparks in a personal way days before and after.

There are some Achilles heels in the horoscope however, and he cannot escape the often conflicting inner drives set off by the Sun/Moon Opposition which has no planet in Square to the two to create a Point Focus of a T-Cross that would lead to a way out of constant conflict and inner turmoil. And then there is the important Jupiter/Saturn Square creating a Sharp Destiny* which leaves him ever subject to the public’s stark scrutiny over any hint of the least wrongdoing.

Besides the powerful eclipse, there is Transiting Saturn, shown at the bottom of the chart circled in red, in Conjunction with Trump’s natal Moon, and the red line pointing to the Opposition Saturn will be making with his Sun at the same time. These Transit Aspects foretell great emotional stress. Trump and others often refer to there being a cloud over the White House, and indeed Saturn is associated with feelings of overshadowing gloom and doom and dark depression. Saturn will also Station at those planetary positions as well, amplifying the factors associated with the Transit. These are physical and emotional sensitive points that promise to bring a crescendo to the long developing controversies plaguing the Trump administration caused by his own doing.

While Trump, as the US surrogate, is experiencing a very active chart during the month of August, it is important to take note of the extremely powerful US Mercury Progressed Direct Station, and the US natal Pluto Return. These two factors prophesize a transformation in the policies and culture of the United States on an epic proportion. The Progressed Mercury Station is currently active and the natal Pluto Return will be ongoing through 2023.  Taking the US and Trump charts together, shows that this is an extremely important time in the history of the United States. It will be known as a transitional period and one that will teach the nation many lessons on governing.

Venus will be Transiting the US natal Mercury on the day of the eclipse. Venus rules money and Mercury in the US Progressions is in the midst of a Station going Direct.  The “critical regrasp” may be revelatory during the Venus Transit.

If Russia has been financing anyone or anything for any reason, and it pours over into US politics, it can be used against us in terms of blackmail, much like the concern Sally Yates posed about Michael Flynn’s clandestine involvements with Russia. We know that ultimately led to his firing/resignation in April 2017. And it does seems rather benign for Trump to ask that good relations develop with Russia so that we can fight terrorism together, but truth is the Russian government under Putin has proven to promote terrorist tactics itself. And the question is, why doesn’t the Trump administration recognize this fact? He need only look at the degradation in Syria and Russia’s part in it. And the recent protests in Russia by its citizens revolting over its leadership. And then there is the annexation of Crimea and the continuing border disputes over Lithuania.

More about US Transits and Progressions: USA Natal Chart, its Retrograde Planets and Pluto Return

*From the Essentials of Astrological Analysis: “Jupiter and Saturn in a Square Aspect indicate an ordering of the life’s fundamental motives through which the native usually suffers immediate consequences of even the least neglect or abuse of his own potentials. He finds he must fight continually for the ideals in which he has come to take the most consistent interest, and also learns that his conscious well-being is wholly dependent on the moral struggles in which he becomes involved almost inevitably at every stage of his experience.” 

Example: Early 20th century news commentator Walter Winchell (an American newspaper and radio gossip commentator, famous for attempting to destroy the careers of people both private and public whom he disliked.) Marc Edmund Jones statement about Winchell’s Jupiter/Saturn Square:  “. . . . whose career has been marked from the beginning by endless controversy and bitter indictment of his personality.”

Why So Famous? Michael Jackson

Corresponding to the overdose of “medicines” to assist him to sleep, was the Jupiter/Neptune Conjunction from the 12th house of hidden procedures, in Transit Opposite Michael Jackson’s natal Retrograde Mercury, shown by the red lines in the chart. Also blurring his awareness is the natal Sun/Moon Opposition especially when the Moon is Conjunct the Ascendant. Moon on the Ascendant shows that his perspective is caught up in his own and very limited scope of experience. The Moon needs to be further through the houses to show a sense of having been through enough to make decisions based on previous consequences. 

The Opposition of the Lights indicates inner conflict concerning being true to himself as opposed to his need to fulfill the public demands on him. The Sun is the self’s Purpose, which is its keyword and the Moon represents his Feelings towards others in general. The T-Cross to a High Focus Saturn on the midheaven gives testimony to the influence of the father in terms of his connection to the outside world and career, and is virtually why he was catapulted into the public eye. Having a Conjunction of a planet with the Midheaven brings it into High Focus, and that planet being Point Focus of a T-Cross as well is a striking Aspect leaning toward potentials for fame.

The natal Sun Conjunct Pluto, shown circled in orange, is another indicator of profound influence on others. The a Sun/Pluto Conjunction stands for the King Complex and in Michael’s case he was literally the King of Pop. Elvis, the King of Rock n’ Roll has the power of the Sun/Pluto Opposition as another variation of the King Complex and its ability to influence a generation. The power of Pluto is shown in that Mercury and Venus are prodding the planet as well. 

There are multiple Conjunctions of planets around the wheel in Michael’s chart and some in Elvis’ chart also. This emphasizes the ultra strength of combined planetary energies as directed outward to impress upon others the native’s potentials. In both cases, the performers influence penetrated deep into the public’s psyche and on a global scale.

The Stellium of planets in the 6th house in Michael’s chart shows that there is more effort than usual needed to achieve his potentials, with continual adjustments in self required while finding his place in the background scheme of things. Planets in the 6th house require the native to carve out a place in life through plain and simple hard work. For Michael, the 6th also points to misfit idiosyncrasies and unusual illnesses and accidents that followed him throughout his climb to success, and this includes his failure to sustain the rigorous routine that led ultimately to his untimely end through drug addiction.

The Progressed Moon just leaving a two month Square to natal Jupiter in the 8th house of ultimate transitions, is the indicator of the inner stress and outer excess the singer endured in the months leading up to his death.

Hillary Reemerges – Code Conference 2017

Hillary Clinton emerged for the 2017 Code Conference in Palos Verdes, California to open up and speak about how she’s feeling six months after losing the US presidential campaign to Donald Trump. The chart shows the planetary Transits of the conference day and her Progressions as they affected her natal horoscope and brought her once again into the public arena.

Transiting Saturn (red arrow in chart) was exactly opposite Hillary’s natal Uranus on the day of the conference. The Sabian Symbol for Uranus at 26 degrees Gemini is, Winter frost in the woods. She made her unexpected (Uranus) appearance precisely when the time-keeper Saturn designated. Finally, her sense of integrity (Saturn) had an outlet for expression when the Opposition gave her the opportunity. It was her chance to express her views in direct contradiction to the radical and damaging accusations cast upon her during the campaign, shown by an unruly Natal Uranus in the 8th house of social acceptance. She has had time to reorient herself as the planet and Sabian Symbol’s positive point suggests (shown in blue). And as a result, she was able to materialize her perspective that is often projected into the world during times of polarizing, Transit Oppositions.

GEMINI 26  Winter frost in the woods  This is a symbol of the cosmic significance in any momentary cancellation of the more immediate interests and private concerns, and the em­phasis is on the supremacy of the needs and powers of nature over the aspirations and conveniences of man. Implicit in the static symbolism is the call for a reorientation in the individual’s point of view, and for some further discovery of the self’s potentials. Normal life is brought to a point of sharp suspension so that the larger magic may be manifest. The keyword is SPLENDOR. When positive, the degree is the creative transformation by which older cycles give way to newer ones, and when negative, a reduction of the useless to a total annihilation.

Also exact in Aspect (green arrow) is Hillary’s Progressed Moon making a supportive Sextile to her 9th house natal Saturn in the Sabian Symbol of A carrier pigeon. Here we see, in the symbol interpretation, the intelligence we know her to possess. But having no Natal Opposition potentials in her chart started her off in life with disabling mental blocks to the challenges she’d face throughout her career. She is doggedly going about following her intuition as the symbol below points out, but lacking an Opposition she’s missing the firm anchor in the outer world to stabilize her, and this weakens her ability to project and sustain her vision. This causes the negative of the symbol, highlighted in green below, to manifest a bit too often for her own good. Examples are the health care debacle of the 90’s, the issue of her vote to go to war in Iraq in 2002, and more recently in 2016, the controversy over sending classified information through her private email server.

LEO 22  A carrier pigeon This is a symbol of the unlimited service of life at large to the special requirements of an individual’s intelligence or understanding. Implicit in the symbolism is the extraordinary extent to which man may Count on learning whatever he may need to know whenever he faces any unfamiliar or critical issue. Here is a universal sensitiveness of mind which in a sense commands all-knowledge, and receives messages of immediate pertinence through sheer intuition whenever its rational capacity has been developed. The keyword is ENLIGHTENMENT. When positive, the degree is a complete mastery of all things through the normal processes of thought, and when negative, a lack of simple good sense.

To comment on Hillary’s Natal chart, we can easily see that her Temperament Type* is a SPLAY. There are the three distinct and required segments, with the Moon set off by itself becoming the High Focus Reins planet in the 4th house of overall inner consolidation. The Moon’s Sabian Symbol is 23 Pisces.

PISCES 23  Spiritist phenomena This is a symbol of the organic integrity of the world at large, evident here in man’s facility for actual and conscious co-operation with the potentials of an immortal reality. Implicit in the symbolism is the fact that the individual will be conditioned increasingly by the caprice of his ideas and the mishaps of his experience unless he gives continual attention to the realms of reality he has thought to make particularly his own. He achieves as he holds a clear picture of the end results he desires. The keyword is SENSITIVITY. When positive, the degree is exceptional ability in shaping every immediate aspect of life to a personal convenience, and when negative, instability and confused perspective.

There is no Grand Trine to create a grove in activity for the momentum needed to easily arrive at the ultimate position she’s longed for over the years. And there are no planets in the 10th house of professional standing, which again leaves her at a disadvantage and stumbling. Also lacking are other chart features that would otherwise help to reach the place in life she covets. Although a courageous public servant, Hillary’s highest points in her career were virtually given to her first by her husband’s powers of administration while president of the US, and second through the appointment as Secretary of State by Barak Obama. By her own efforts she was voted a Senator for New York State, but not until after proving her abilities from previous assisted accomplishments. The Splay can produce a complex and inwardly stable potential, and Hillary’s physical and emotional stamina certainly owes much to this particular Temperament Type. But the negative of the Moon’s symbol shown in blue, is an ever-challenging threat to the Splay’s stabilizing potentials. Another challenge comes from the sometimes self-sabotaging feature of a Sun in the constraining 12th house, which is also the clue to her dependence on the initiative of others for support and direction.

By the end of 2018, we’ll see Transit Uranus make an Opposition to Hillary’s Natal Sun. This will undoubtedly propel her once again into the arena of public service in perhaps a more unique manner than usual.

Trump & Comey, a Failed Bromance

Seems the bromance has ended before the exact Transit aspects can take hold August 2017 that “promise” more intense events. On May 9, 2017, Trump fired FBI Director, James Comey, and thus set the stage for an even broader probe into the interference of Russia in the 2016 US elections. It looks a bit suspicious that the firing of the Director came at a time when subpoenas were being issued for records relating to Michael Flynn, the former national security adviser. Is Trump, in a transparent way, trying to obstruct justice?

Here is a quote from The New York Times, May 9 edition:

“In a sign of the F.B.I.’s intense interest in Mr. Trump’s advisers, a grand jury in Virginia issued subpoenas in recent weeks for records related to the former White House national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn, according to an American official familiar with the case. Mr. Flynn is under investigation for his financial ties to Russia and Turkey. Grand jury subpoenas are a routine part of federal investigations and are not a sign that charges are imminent. It was not clear that the subpoenas, which were first reported by CNN, were related to Mr. Comey’s firing.

Chart 1 shows Trump’s Natal horoscope in the inner wheel with Comey’s Progressions for May in the outer wheel. Shown with the purple arrow is an aspect that “follows the money.” We can see that Comey’s Progressed Venus is in the 8th house of joint financial dealings, directly opposite Trump’s Natal Neptune in the 2nd house of personal finances. Neptune in Trump’s 2nd house points to the smokescreen he nurtures to obscure his unfulfilled promise to reveal his tax returns, and his unwillingness to discuss the reality of his business connections with Russia. It is important to point out that political officials, including the president of the United States, engaging in personal and financial connections with Russia puts the entire country at a security risk. Their clandestine involvements and investments makes them vulnerable to pressure or blackmail. This is precisely why General Michael Flynn was fired. It’s counterproductive, not to mention that the US and Russia are adversaries.

Astrologically, Comey’s focus on Trump’s 2nd house circumstances is obvious, and his Progressed Venus shows that the inquiry into Trump’s business transactions is/was already well underway. This is clear by noting that Progressed Venus is passed the exact aspect. Oppositions are penetrating and polarizing, and Comey’s Progressed Venus in Trump’s 8th house of other people’s resources corresponds to the dogged probe to uncover the truth, and exacerbates the conflict between the two men. Trump’s Neptunian sense may very well have intuitively alerted him that Comey was hot on his trail, albeit in the smooth manner with which Venus expresses itself even when confronted by a challenge. Venus takes approximately a year to move in and out of a Progressed aspect.

There are also Oppositions between Comey’s Progressed Jupiter and Saturn to Trump’s Natal Saturn and Venus shown by the red arrows. Oppositions with Saturn are highly sensitive, and it looks like the two have been deeply concerned and entangled in a “love”/hate dynamic for awhile. Ending the FBI director’s career on May 9th was Trump’s way of breaking the tie in the hopes that the investigation would go away. But the interaction between the two is not over, as there is more to come in August 2017 when astrological factors increase, for Trump, Comey and the country as a whole. The Aspects include the Total Solar Eclipse across the face of the United States on August 21, and the Station of Saturn Conjunct Trump’s Moon and Opposite his Sun on August 26.

Chart 2 shows very strong Aspects with planets that have an even more powerful effect on the situation then the planets that were active during the time of Comey’s firing.

Not very easy for Comey, is Transit Pluto coming to rest on his natal Saturn in August (shown in the purple circle at the bottom right of the chart). The Squares from these natal and Transit planets put pressure on and activates Trump’s natal Jupiter in the 2nd house. Curiously, Jupiter’s Sabian Symbol degree of 18 Libra is, Two men placed under arrest. It is most likely that Comey’s irritation at being so gruffly handled sets the Squares to work trying to reveal incriminating evidence and bring criminal charges against this president. The Squares act in covert fashion, as opposed to direct confrontation characteristic of Oppositions.

It is also important to remember in regards to the activation of Trump’s Jupiter that it is in Square to its planetary pair Saturn and reveals a SHARP DESTINY.*

The eastern angel of the chart shows Comey’s natal Uranus “rubbing up against” and irritating Trump’s natal Mars – suggesting Trump’s vulnerability to anger through this interaction of planets. An activation of this shared potential is due in late August when there is a Mars Return for the president. Out of the darkness of the hidden 12th house activity, may arise the information that Comey so radically desires to reveal.

At the top of the chart is shown a very stressful Opposition taking place between Trump’s Progressed Uranus and Comey’s Natal Sun at 21 Gemini 18. This brings to the fore and electrifies the head-butting and ultra-challenging Opposition of their Natal Suns. This is a direct conflict and confrontation of Wills, even though the Suns are in compatible elements. This type of Aspect, although magnetically drawing the two individuals together, also gives a keen and sharp awareness of each other’s PURPOSE, which in this case is diametrically opposed in their objectives. As well as being such a profound player in the aspect between the two individuals and their goals, the Progressed Uranus is also directly Conjunct Trump’s own Natal Sun, giving him that bigger-than-life, radical, iconoclastic and sometimes bombastic manner and approach to his presidency. Trump’s Progressed Uranus will be Conjunct his Natal Sun for the duration of his term in office as president of the United States. If he has only one 4 year term or is impeached for any reason, the Progression will follow him into his private life. Freedom is an attribute of Uranus. How long will he be in office?

Now that James Comey is no longer at the helm of the FBI, there is a candidate, Joe Lieberman, waiting in the wings to possibly take that now empty position. And Trump is attracted to Lieberman as a substitute for Comey, because he is aware of the gracious connection between Lieberman and his former national security adviser, Michael Flynn. We know this because Lieberman wrote a thoughtful and supportive testimonial for the first page of Flynn’s book, The Field of Fight, published in 2016. The two men obviously know each other and this acquaintance just might make for a more amiable interaction between the head of the FBI and the former security adviser who is now about to be “called on the carpet” because of recent subpoenas.

UPDATE: Because of controversial issues, Lieberman is no longer a candidate for the directorship of the FBI

It’s possible that the big changes in Comey’s life are related to the Progressed Stations of Neptune and Mercury coming in the near future for the now unemployed civil servant. The blue highlight in the graph shows Comey at age 57 corresponding to year 2017. Neptune is already in the throes of a great turnaround, ultimately due in 2019. Neptune has such a slow orbit that there is no doubt that this is one of the factors carrying out transformation in Comey’s daily life even though 2 years away from absolute standstill before turning Retrograde.

Comey’s Progressed Mercury will go Retrograde in 2021 and will undoubtedly mark the time of a consciousness turning inward with the result of a more comprehensive understanding of life at the time he was so high profile. These important Stations, as well as the Transits in the offing, indicate a still very involved and lively career in store for the honorable, but sometimes dubious and very emotional ex-FBI Director. His Leading and emotionally charged High Focus Mars, in the already emotional sign of Cancer, reveals its intensity through his speech and mannerisms which can easily be witnessed through his testimonies at several Senate hearings shown on YouTube.   

“Jupiter and Saturn in square aspect indicate an ordering of life’s fundamental motives through which the native usually suffers very immediate consequences of even the least neglect or abuse of his own potentials. He finds he must fight continuously for the ideals in which he has come to take the most consistent interest, and also learns that his conscious well-being is wholly dependent on the moral struggles in which he becomes involved almost inevitably at every stage of his experience. . . . . Personal existence under this configuration can become either a great opportunity or else a gradual disintegration of the soul in the very core of itself.” (page 124, Essentials of Astrological Analysis)

The Bromance of Mifune and Kurosawa

Toshiro Mifune and Akira Kurosawa had a collaborative destiny in film par excellence. Both were superb in the expression of their individual talents. But it is with Toshiro Mifune that we will focus our attention. We’ll look to see what it is in the heavenly bodies that reflect what took place during his lifetime.

Mifune was born in China to Japanese parents, and he followed in the footsteps of his father’s career, albeit in film as opposed to still photography. His first encounter with film was when he was a very young child when his father used him as a model. As he grew, he was catapulted into starring roles because of his larger than life prowess on screen.

His emotional power is easily seen in his natal wheel by the Grand Water Trine shown by connected orange lines. Pluto and Mars play an essential role in this triangular configuration that develops in pyramiding fashion over time. Grand Trines create momentum for good or for bad, depending on the grooves of experience with which the native concentrates their efforts. If a negative habit-pattern of activity is set from childhood, there is the possibility to break away from that downward spiral through an activation of any Squares the native has to the Grand Trine. That stops the momentum and Mifune has that capability to break negative cycles with the Grand Trine Mars participant also applying in Square to natal Jupiter/Neptune. Pyramiding High Focus Mars in Scorpio is in its rulership, and that endowed Mifune with ultra sex appeal, although his roles were played out in restraint, and that made him all the more desirable. Off a bit by itself, Mars becomes Excitation in keyword, as opposed to its normal keyword Initiative.

The Jupiter/Neptune exact Conjunction shows the potentials as a screen personality. The exact Conjunction is also the give-away indicator for the heavy drinking for which he was notorious. Neptune rules the screen of the mind and imagination, and a projection of that is imagery played out on the silver screen of the film industry. Jupiter expands that potential and makes it “bigger than life.”

Five planets are retrograde including Mercury, and that is likely the reason for his quiet internalized intensity for which he was known. The sympathy and compassion for his fellow actors, and the tender side he revealed to some, is shown by the three planets in Pisces. Uranus is the Leading Planet of his powerful Locomotive Temperament Type, and the pattern is fairly ideal with its Grand Trine and Core Opposition stemming from that High Focus Leader. The keyword for Uranus in High Focus becomes Experimentative, instead of the keyword Independence it would have been if remaining in a normal and less prominent role.

If Mifuni was born in the wee early hours of April 1, 1920, his Sun’s Sabian Symbol would be The president of the country.* The fascinating thing about the description of the symbol is the several references to playing a role among his fellows and of the impact that position would have in bringing the native notoriety. Powerful effects of one’s personality on others are shown in the chart through multiple Conjunctions. Planets that join forces amplify their potentials to the outside world.

The astrological connection between the two creatives is in the very tight Opposition of Kurosawa’s Jupiter, shown at the top of the outer wheel, to Mifune’s Sun at the bottom of the inner wheel. This is great good fortune for both of them, with Kurosawa being a Paternal (Jupiter keyword) figure to Mifune, and one that releases controls over what the other would express through his own Will; the Aries Sun Mifune was born to be. With a Natal Moon Conjunct Saturn, there more calculated rather than spontaneous method in his acting, and it is known he would prepare far in advance of performance. And the Trine to the Sun from the Jupiter/Neptune Conjunction is all he needs for a smooth expression of his Aspiring talents; Aries keyword is Aspiration.

Major collaborative films were Rashomon, Seven Samurai, The Hidden Fortress, Throne of Blood, and Yojimbo.

*ARIES 11 The president of the country This is a symbol of high ego on the impersonal side, evident in the complete and naïve dedication of the individual to some part he chooses to play among his fellows. Implicit here is the selection of such a role as will have a maximum breadth of recognition, so that the player may be established in a reality which he would be quite unable to sustain by himself. There is a subordination of all other considerations to one primary act of individual assurance. The keyword is IDEALIZATION. When positive, the degree is the self-sacrifice required of anybody who would be­come the creative representative of eternal value, and when negative, an often well-meaning but usually destructive assertiveness or vain pretense.

Planetary Aspects, the Electrical Connections of Intelligence

Ancient civilizations observed the night skies with awe and wonder on a nightly basis. They had no distractions from the starry vault by televisions, cell phones, computers and other digital devises, and so they dedicated their time to a comprehensive understanding of the movements of the stars, planets and other heavenly phenomena. Observatories were common in their cultural centers, and remnants of them remain as a source of their highly sophisticated celestial calculations.

El Caracol, the crumbling observatory tower at Chichen’ Itza’ in Mexico, reaches far above the Yucatan jungle and was the means by which ancient Maya astronomers viewed the 360 degrees of the sky to track solstices, equinoxes and eclipses, and specifically the orbit of Venus. They recorded their findings in books, although most were destroyed during the European conquest in the first millennia. One of the remaining three Maya texts, called codices, tells of the 26,000 year cycle using the long-count calendar. There is no doubt that sky observation dominated the minds of the Maya during their classical period.

The priests and noble classes of past cultures used astronomical activity as a means of dominance over the lives of the masses they ruled. The predictable synchronicity between activities on Earth as they correspond to celestial conditions and planetary cycles, gave the astronomer/astrologer priests knowledge of coming events. This information was used to prove to their subjects the powers they held in the scheme of daily life. They assigned the planets godlike attributes based on their longtime observations of its effects on nature and humanity. Since astrology developed over a vast period of time, it became known as an empirical science.

The astrological tool used to determine the connection between celestial bodies in the solar system and their potential to effect human experience is called an ASPECT. Astrological aspects are defined by the mathematical separations of the positions of the 10 planets (Sun and Moon included) as they interrelate with each other in their cyclical orbits. The planets are viewed from a geodesic perspective because our experience is earth-centered. The 5 primary geometric aspect relationships are called MAJOR ASPECTS. They are a division of their orbits in terms of the Conjunction at 0 degrees separation, the Sextile at 60 degrees, the Square at 90, the Trine at 120 and the Opposition at 180 degrees apart in the “circle of the signs of the year” (also known as the zodiacal signs defined by the backdrop of the constellations in the belt of the ecliptic).

There is a 10 degree allowance of orb with the planets, 12.5 with the Moon and a 17 degree allowance for the Sun. A Sextile for example, can also be active when planets are up to 70 degrees of separation. There are also a myriad of MINOR ASPECTS that become pertinent when a chart reading suggests an examination of the more subtle personal capacities.

The chart shown here is that of physicist Wal Thornhill, one of the founders of the Thunderbolts Project, a popular movement represented on their YouTube channel. Lines are drawn in the chart to show connections between planets in major aspect. Defined by the division of the circle by numbers, they signify the dynamic connections of charged energy-fields latent between the masses of individual planets. These geometric relationships describe the unique characteristics of the individual or group entity that the chart represents. It is not numbers or math that endow the planets with power to influence our lives, it is the electrical activity between the planets that empowers them. And in turn, they guide our experiences through their connection with our horoscopic profile potentials. The planetary forces exert their objectives through temporary Transits and developmental Progressions calculated from an astronomical ephemeris.

In Symbols of an Alien Sky, at 52:10 of the YouTube video, Wal Thornsill states:

“In an electric solar system, if two planets or moons approach each other from regions of different potential, an electric discharge will occur, producing plasma formations stretching between the approaching bodies.” 

At 34:32 in the YouTube Video, An Electric Cosmology for the 21st Century, Wal Thornhill states:

“The Solar System has currents flowing through it, and there’s currents flowing between planets at certain times. In this case Venus . . . ” See diagram below showing Venus in an inferior Conjunction alignment with the Sun and Earth. There is a visual energy trail from Venus, caused by the Sun. This effect was photographed by the SOHO spacecraft.

Innate within these plasma formations is the intelligence that is the spark of life and consciousness. Circled in green are two planets in Thornhill’s horoscope that were in extremely close contact at the hour of his birth. Although Thornhill’s exact time of birth is not known to this astrologer, there is no doubt that the relatively slow orbiting planets, Saturn and Uranus, were making this very tight Conjunction aspect on May 2, 1942. This is an extraordinary connection between these two planets as they are within 3 minutes of exact Conjunction. It is also in a special zodiacal position in the heavens known as the Pleiades*; a group of stars also known as the Weeping Sisters or the Seven Sisters. This group of stars is known to be in one of the nearest constellations to Earth, and many cults from ancient times to the present, have developed a belief in its profound and sometimes ominous effects on humankind.

On the other hand, the star group is believed to bring great wisdom and knowledge to anyone born under its influence, and is also believed to be the source of knowledge channeled from several “non-corporal” entities. Regardless of myths and cults associated with 29 degrees Taurus, the Conjunction aspect in Thornhill’s chart endows him with a potential for deep wisdom as a Saturnian effect, coupled with Uranian higher conscious brilliance.

Often these two planets are seen to be diametrically opposed in their characteristic effects. Saturn’s act on conscience has been observed to promote sensitivity to conservative moral compliance and respect for authority; be it to parent, teacher, boss i.e. cultural pressures. The planet’s Transits and Progressions give opportunities for the native to conform to accepted social mores. If guilt is felt for wrong doing, a subsequent period of regret and repentance is in order to assuage conscience. It is the opposite in regards to the trailblazer Uranus. Known as the Promethean impulse, it has the capacity to break free of the common restraints and boundaries Saturn puts forth. It lays new grounds and feels justified and responsible for charting new concepts and paradigms.

In Thornill’s chart, these two energies, the one more concrete and the other etheric, seem to work well together in maturity, once the preliminary choice of life-path had been made.  What might have been continuing internal ambivalence if not disciplined, now has become Saturn’s steadying focus on the iconoclastic counter-approach Thornhill has developed. His challenge to generations of scientists bogged down in outdated cosmologies helps promote his hypothesis of the more realistic Electric Universe.

The birthright and potentials of the Saturn/Uranus Conjunction includes a generation of individuals born during the same year as Thornhill. The slow moving duo lasted throughout the entire year of 1942 and beyond. But what makes this Conjunction so significant for Thornhill is its exactitude and relationship with several other supporting planets at the time.

It is beyond the scope of this post to give an in-depth analysis of the chart shown here, but Keywords offer a keyhole view into meaning and interpretation:

The Saturn/Uranus Conjunction potential is further understood through an examination of their keyword definitions. Saturn’s keyword is Sensitiveness and Uranus has the keyword Independence. Thornhill broke away from established academia because of an overriding Sensitiveness and dedication to the facts he was able to uncover for his pioneering self. Uranus’ keyword when it is prominent in a horoscope takes on a different and more fascinating keyword definition; Experimentative. Thornhill relies on laboratory experimentation to explain and validate imagery and observations of outer space.

Mercury Conjunct Saturn and Uranus adds its meaning through the keyword Inquisitive  indicative of Thornhill’s probing Mentality (another of Mercury’s keywords). The Sun as well is Conjunct the others in Taurus and creates a Stellium in Sign. The four together amplify the meaning of Taurus, which being an earth sign/element, is representative of the physical properties of the cosmos. The Sun’s keyword is Purpose, and its position is exactly 17 degrees apart from Saturn/Uranus, making a Conjunction with the two at its widest point allowable. A Stellium is a Focal Determinator; a planetary configuration pointing to an important feature of the natal chart. It would be interesting to know the exact placement of the Moon and how it might enter into the chart dynamics, but that is only possible when the exact time of birth is known.

The Green lines pointing from Venus to the triple Conjunction of Mercury, Saturn and Uranus show multiple Sextiles at birth. The Sextile is a derivation of the Triangle which denotes in astrology an ease in connecting with people and receiving their support and assistance. Venus’ benefic effects then add Appreciation to the already stacked potentials for rewarding experience via the multiple Sextiles. The chart’s challenging stresses come from the Opposition of Venus to Neptune shown with a red line between them. However this polarization gives rise to another Focal Determinator of importance. It is Jupiter in a symmetrical Square to both Neptune and Venus. This 90 degree angle to the 180 degree Opposition is shown with the red and purple configuration is called a T-Cross, as it forms the letter T, whether it is on its side or even upside down. The planet that creates the stem of the T is considered a Focal Determinator called Point Focus. This planet becomes the dynamic outlet for the more static Opposition. It stems from and is the point through which the energy/intelligence flows and has its potential release. It becomes a powerful force by being sparked and energized by the electrical charges it receives the planets in the polarizing Opposition. Jupiter, the Point Focus of the T-Cross takes on the keyword Paternal, revealing the protective and nurturing nature of the native. Thornhill wishes to spread the truth of the Electrical Universe, and with the help of Point Focus Jupiter, he does so by “adopting” those underlings he deems worthy of his enlightened message.

Shown by the yellow line is Neptune applying in a 120 wide Trine (triangle) aspect to High Focus Jupiter in the Sabian degree of A barn dance.**  The original symbol of Jupiter being, An old-fashioned harvest home festival is at its height with flashing dancing couples crowding the barn floor. 


From the American Federation of Astrologers:
The Babylonians are generally credited with the birth of astrology. Their astrological charts enabled them to predict the recurrence of seasons and certain celestial events. So in the beginning and for more than 2,000 years, astrology and astronomy were the same science.

Babylonian astrology was introduced to the Greeks early in the 4th century B.C. and, through the studies of Plato, Aristotle, and others, astrology came to be highly regarded as a science. It was soon embraced by the Romans (the Roman names for the zodiacal signs are still used today) and the Arabs and later spread throughout the entire world.

While earliest astrology was used to bring a sense of order out of apparent chaos, it was soon utilized to predict weather patterns, primarily for agricultural purposes. It was eventually broadened to include forecasts of natural disasters and war and other events in the course of human affairs. Amassing successes in these fields, it was a natural progression for astrology to be used as counsel for kings and emperors and, in time, for all of us.
*From A Treatise on Cosmic Fire by Alice Bailey

The Pleiades are to the solar system the source of electrical energy and, just as our sun is the embodiment of the heart or love aspect of the Logos . . . . , so the Pleiades are the feminine opposite of Brahma.” (The third aspect. Page 156.)

The repetition of the symbolic harvest time theme in the chart is notable. There is the reference to a harvest dance in Jupiter’s original symbol of 22 degrees Gemini, as well as with Venus’ 27 degree symbol, A harvest Moon.

**GEMINI 22 A barn dance This is a symbol of complete self-fulfillment through the established or normal activities of the community at large, and of a consummation of self by the broadest possible participation in the divisions of labor which constitute a human society. Richness of living comes from an uninhibited sharing of everyday potentialities, together with a maximum of happy give-and-take between any one indivi­dual and any other. The keyword is GREGARIOUSNESS. When positive, the degree is an ability to plunge into major and re­warding experiences without the least self-reservation, and when negative, a dependence on superficialities for self-satis­faction and on petty indulgences for self-assurance.

***PISCES 27 A harvest moon This is a symbol of life’s mo­ments of culmination as the threshold of new achievement rather than as any canceling out of experience in the given aspect, and it emphasizes the fact that nature in her immeas­urable prodigality is forever showering man with the products of her untiring creativeness. She is saying to him that his productivity is as rich as hers, and that the highly concentrated resources of the world are at the immediate service of anyone who will put them to use and so facilitate their replacement. The keyword is BENEDICTION. When positive, the degree is self-consummation which is successful beyond any possibility of measure, and when negative, loss of self in a welter of op­portunity.

Bill O’Reilly On Fire and Deposed

The recent self-induced calamity in the life of Bill O’Reilly is a fall of catastrophic proportions and an extremely embarrassing one in terms of his lost footing as a television host on Fox News Channel. He is also an author, journalist, syndicated columnist, and political commentator with leanings to the far Right. Throughout his career there has been controversy over his racist remarks on the air as well as allegations of sexual harassment behind the scenes. His untoward behavior with woman has risen from rumor to public exposure. The result is satisfaction given to self-respecting women and supporters of fairness and respect in the workplace. There are at least five women who have received in total 13 million dollars to be appeased and to keep quiet about their uncomfortable ordeals and lost opportunities because of his misuse of power.

In today’s media transparency it is almost impossible to shield oneself from reaping the justified backlash coming from unorthodox acts even if you throw big money at people. And why is this one not getting away with his backstage antics? Here in a brief analysis of O’Reilly’s Natal chart with Transits and Progressions, we’ll track the development of a conscience now needing to repent at best, and at worst continue his uninhibited, disrespectful advances toward random women, albeit now in the shadows of life outside Fox News.

Being born with Saturn Conjunct the Sun can be challenging and sometimes painful, but it also can indicate a very focused and purposeful life. The higher road takes you to prominence and personal responsibility, which is true in O’Reilly’s case. But one can fall from the heights if the higher way is not chosen because of vulnerability to the id. It is Saturn’s task to create awareness through self-reflection or by social pressures. The planet’s Transits and Progressions open the door for acknowledging and correcting failures brought to light, and the process is accomplished through the function of good conscience. Saturn is in fact the Solar System’s counterpart and indicator of personal growth. Bill O’Reilly is in the middle of some very serious Transits and Progressions, and the planetary pair of Saturn and Jupiter are major players, as well as aspects with the Significant planets Uranus, Neptune and Pluto foretelling of big change.

At this time, Progressed Saturn is only a slight 13 minutes passed exact Conjunction of O’Reilly’s Natal Sun. This is conscience or Karma coming home to roost, and the aspect can be seen by the short red line at the top of the chart leading from Progressed Saturn in the middle ring to the Natal Sun in 17Virgo36.

There are no Squares or Oppositions to the Sun in this chart to suggest that the soul will take the hint and transform its unacceptable behavior. Most likely the discomfort of the Saturn Transit will last the length of the aspect and if not curbed in other ways and by outside forces, the tendency will be to take the charges lightly.  leading to a continuation of the career as a writer.

Transit Jupiter in the outer ring shows a temporary Conjunction with O’Reilly’s Neptune in the sign of balance in relationships. A Neptunian desire to cloud the reason with alcohol and/or drugs may be considered at this time. But the policeman characteristics of Jupiter may very well arrest Neptune’s tendency to deviate from normal boundaries of respect when in the company of women and people of color. In other words, this may be the perfect time and opportunity to curb his perpetual problems and extreme points of view by getting professional advice.

Transit Uranus Opposes Natal Venus which signals the sudden and unexpected downfall at the hands of a few good woman. And if the time of birth is close to noon, the moon Opposite Venus may be the Natal “tell” of potentially disruptive interactions with the opposite sex.

Finally, a look at the powerful Station of Transit Pluto Conjunct Natal Jupiter in the degree of Two awards for bravery in war.  This Retrograde Station of Pluto, shown at the bottom left of the chart, is exact on April 21 – a mere one day after the announcement of O’Reilly’s dismissal from Fox News Channel. Apparently, The awards in this case are going to the women who have stood up to this traumatizing and demeaning episode in their lives.

Pluto brings out the truth in circumstances, and a transformation of consciousness is often part of the opportunity. And it is not only for the perpetrator in this instance, but it is a call to transformation of other victimizers worldwide, thanks to the public nature of this scandal that brought justice in the end. The fact that O’Reilly walked away with an additional $25 million is his reward, not so much for a brave and righteous attitude in the situation however. Indeed the negative of the Sabian Symbol is: strutting self-exploitation. There is a record of this type of behavior recorded in his news broadcast through the years, as well as through testimony of those who recently came forward to receive their well-deserved awards for bravery.
