Still reeling I am (as are many) from the travesty of justice that took place on November 8, 2016.
Most astrologers (not all) at ISAR2016, our conference in Costa Mesa, CA did not call the election accurately, myself included. Some of the Vedic astrologers (Joni Patry) did get it right, and several of us Westerners (Ema Kurent, Christeen Skinner) felt that Hillary would win but would not take the oath.
When interviewed (multiple times) for an article which ran in the Wall Street Journal on Sept 29/30 2016, I told the reporter that Election Day 2016 had similar qualities to Election Day 2000, in that two planets change signs and that things will start out looking one way and end up differently.
Little did I know how precise that would be.
As stated many times, Hillary’s birth time remains in question. So it was very difficult to nail this down. However, almost all tried and true indicators proved to not work this time.
With astrology, interpretation is everything, and calling the ‘winner” here was tough especially since Hillary is, as of this writing, ahead by over 2.8 million votes, and the CIA has now confirmed that Russian hackers were involved in this process.
Since Y2K, I’ve been speaking out the Pluto-return of the US 2020-2024 and how that spoke of another American Revolution. Clearly, what is being put in motion now with Trump, Pence, Ryan, McConnell, and those being appointed to the cabinet who would destroy the very departments they are there to serve, is hastening this event.
More, much more on that in days, weeks months and years to come.
The December 13 Full Moon is almost precisely on Donald Trump’s Sun and Moon (in reverse- he has the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Sagittarius) and with Saturn close by, the pressure on him will be relentless. And as a reminder, the horoscope for the inauguration on January 20, 2017 is very very difficult, if in fact Trump does take the oath without a hitch. The frustration, gridlock and war-like energy is there no matter how you slice it. Mind you, it would have been the same for Hillary, Bernie, or whomever is sworn in at noon on that day.
Keep in mind too, that we are now (December 12) in the pre-retrograde “shadow” period of Mercury. Things are slowing down, and even MORE information about what actually transpired to throw the election is and will continue coming to light.
Mercury actually stations (stands still) and goes retrograde on December 19. (Might that impact the Electoral Vote?) I’d be surprised if that went off without a hitch.
Looking ahead to Dec 31-
New Year’s Eve is especially wonky what with Mars and Neptune merging in Pisces. It’s a foggy, escapist yet highly charged combo.
Susceptibility to infection is high,
Guard against over-doing it- and if you drive, do so with extreme caution.
