re: SA-PL - Just curious: How will the coming Global Corporatocracy be different 
from the current state of government? Elected officials are owned by those who fund them: follow the money (corporation/business/despot) to see who bought whom, and know that laws will be enacted for their benefit. Yes, many of those actions have been covert, but W Bush, with the creation of Citizen's United, made our country's corporate ownership overt. And corporations have no conscience. They care not about global warming, unless they can make a dollar from it. As long as 
business-as-usual is generating billions of dollars, climate change 
means nothing. 

re: SA-PL - Love your Newscope blog and interpretations of our political events. I have read on numerous blogs that the upcoming Pluto/Saturn conjunction will mean conservative power, government, etc. due to Saturn and Pluto both being in Capricorn. Some astrologers have interpreted this to mean that the GOP and possibly Trump will win re-election in 2020. However, the past 9 months of the Trump administration has been anything but conservative and seems more like a radical repudiation of our constitution and past governmental norms and institutions.  
        So I was wondering if this 2020 Pluto/Saturn conjunction could mean that we return to our traditional governing norms and shore up our government institutions in response to a failed and chaotic Trump administration? Perhaps a return to constitutional basics and less conspiratorial and ideological based ideas and more practical forms of governing. I seem to recall in my astrological readings that Saturn also represents structure, reality based thinking and justice (because it is exalted in Libra). Therefore, wouldn't Saturn demand a return to evidenced based policy, such as the reality of climate change, or Is this just wishful thinking on my part?

re: NCAA football - Some yr.'s ago, I suggested you do an astrological analysis of the University of Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino. You did, and it was interesting. Coach Bobby Pitrino is now at the University of Louisville, and has been very successful. I have an additional suggestions for you to consider: the University of Alabama football coach, Nick Saban, has the BEST NCAA football program in all of America. They are ranked #1 again this year. From an astrology point-of-view: WHY?

re: Pluto-Mars - I'm having cold chills and looking for metaphysical/esoteric balm. I noticed that the square between transiting Pluto and the U.S. progressed Mars started Mar/Apr '16 during the brutal primary season when Pluto went Rx. Just before the election it went direct at 15 degrees and a racist, sexist plutocrat narrowly won; votes were still being counted as the square became exact and he was sworn in. Pluto went Rx, but it just turned direct at 17 degrees and will again square progressed Mars at (approx.) 18 Libra. My question is, will it be over when Pluto gets to 19 degrees since this is an aspect to a progressed planet?  

A. These are good observations and an excellent question. In my opinion, the re-awakening of the racist, sexist element in U.S. culture is due to progressed Mars being in the U.S. 12th house, which when activated, awakens all kinds of mean-spirited, aggressive, violent behavior. Other outer planets or progressed planets will continue to stir up this progressed Mars long after Pluto has passed this critical contact. But Pluto’s square is the most hostile.
re: Lilith - Your segment on Lilith and patriarchy? SO good. I loved it.

re: sex scandals - Scandalous revelations are not unique to the US. There have been many in France, Switzerland, the UK and here in Quebec. Jupiter and Lilith in Scorpio are having an effect in many countries.

re: Merkel - I was just reading an article about the roles that Macron and Merkel are 
going to need to play in the EU. Are they a compatible duo?

re: progressed Mars - I appreciate your addressing the U.S. progressed Mars. I confess that I'm even more distressed for myself since my p. nodes are conjunct this potentially violent energy at 16 degrees S/Libra and N/Aries.
       Plus there are other contacts good and not so good, but my chart seems also closely linked to the U.S. chart with a long list of aspects starting with <snip>. Thank you for the heads up that it will last two more years. I hope I have enough good energy in my chart to survive!

A. Your natal planetary connections to the U.S. chart can be quite telling in the professional life, but are not likely related to your divorce or other personal affairs.

re: presidential election study - I have been a proponent of your Scorpio Rising natal chart for the USA for many years, since I was introduced into the concept back in the 1970's, through the works of, and conversations with Marc Penfield; and your postings on the internet, and book. I thought it useful to do this study years ago. It sheds some light on US Presidential Party change, or not, in connection with the election cycle. I thought that you might find it of interest. <snip> History informs that a U.S. Presidential Election concurrent with any Saturn-Uranus aspect, hard, soft, or neutral, is very likely (76.9 %) to result in a change of party in the U.S. Presidency.

A. Thank-you. Very interesting!

re: NewsScope - Still waiting to see an article entitled "The Shadow Side of Liberalism"
re: Bitcoin - Great post on Bitcoin. I have seen charts that locate Bitcoin in Dublin, not London. What is the difference? Why London? Why Dublin? The world is being remade. Signs are everywhere. "Bitcoin" is one of them. Thanks for interesting and timely reading. 

re: Al Franken - Franken's sexual indiscretions are not the moral equivalent of full-blown sexual predation ... be it of an adult or a child. And certainly the application of moral equivalency still does not excuse his behavior. The Democratic Party is now promoting zero tolerance and Franken, though he is not the President or Roy Moore, is paying the piper. I notice that Black Moon Lilith, since around October, has been near the Galactic Center. I am curious ... just how much of all this ... since Weinstein to the present ... is Black Moon Lilith? 

A. A lot of it! I've written previously about how progressed Lilith is in the US 12th house and with Mars, both being opposed by the progressed Midheaven, and squared by transiting Pluto. Read the most recent entry on this subject here: http://www.neptunecafe.com/nsc111317.html

re: Lilith - I'm fascinated with your mention of Black Moon Lilith’s influence on the US (guns and sexuality), as well as her influence on Israel. If you ever have time to write about her influence of Europe and Switzerland, I would love to hear about it!

re: war - Have you ever seen, in an inauguration chart, a configuration that suggests war (Mars-Saturn in a challenging aspect) and yet actual warfare with another country did not manifest?

A. I haven’t done that study, sorry. But yes, war does look increasingly possible on the Korean peninsula, and Mars in Pisces does square Saturn in Sagittarius in Trump’s Inauguration chart. Mars square Saturn could also represent Trump’s daily struggle for his political survival, and the bitter partisan politics that his presidency has brought.

re: Ceres - My question has to do with ceres. I recently discovered that when ceres goes retrograde it lasts for 9 months (long enough to gestate and birth an infant!) and since it's in leo it's conjuncting the very planets pluto is inconjuncting. Since many people must have pluto in leo, is this some kind of generational thing? In my life it has manifested partially as distress and death stalking my pets no matter how hard I try to protect them. Hoping for some relief in June when ceres heads into virgo.

A. Ceres is retrograde for only three months, but is in Leo for nine months. Yes, this may influence the Pluto in Leo generation, also known as the “baby-boomers”. Many will have health crises during this time, or have to manage their parents’ well-being and life passages.

re: NewsScope - Appreciated the insight into Rod Rosenstein, and that whole NewsScope edition was a great read, once again.

re: death - I read your article on Louise Hay in Dell Astrology Magazine. It was wonderful and insightful. You mentioned her end came when transiting pluto and her progressed sun opposed her natal pluto. It seems very rarely that people live past t. pluto opposed n. pluto or 124 years approx. You answered one reader that Jupiter indicated death; the ultimate journey but Louise had no really bad jupiter transits except maybe progressed sun on the cusp of the 8th, something that can't happen in all charts. You know; what indicators relieve us of loved ones against our desire, you might say?

A. Major outer planet transits or progressions to the Sun can greatly diminish one’s vital force, but generally speaking, numerous challenging astro-events happening at once can bring death.

re: NYSE - Regarding your pop quiz about what else is going on in the NYSE chart, transiting Uranus is activating the Neptune-Saturn opposition. Also transiting Saturn is opposing natal Lilith.  

A. Yes, transiting Saturn is opposing the NYSE’s Part of Fortune, which in turn is conjunct Black Moon Lilith. Transiting Uranus is nearly conjunct the elevated Saturn, which is certainly a disruptive influence. Looking at the progressed chart, we have a Fixed Grand Cross, which has provided the steady, long-term growth for the last few years. When a Fixed Grand Cross breaks, it’s like an earthquake.

re: Laurence Fink - Did you hear about this yet? <link> A titan in the financial world is threatening to withhold investments from corporations unless they show they ‘contribute to society.’ I thought either he and/or his company might be interesting to look at from an astrological perspective. 

A. Very interesting! Thx for the suggestion…

re: yoga - My name is Jenn and I’m a writer at Jen Reviews. I was doing research on yoga and just finished reading your wonderful blog post: http://neptunecafearchives.homestead.com/nsc031212.html In that article, I noticed that you cited a solid post that I’ve read in the past: https://www.yogajournal.com/lifestyle/281. I just finished writing a guide that is even more detailed, updated and comprehensive on 18 amazing health benefits of yoga. It is over 7,000 words and packed with practical tips and advice. You can find it here: https://www.jenreviews.com/yoga/ If you like the guide we’d be humbled if you cited us in your article. Of course, we will also share your article with our 50k newsletter subscribers and followers across our social platforms. Either way, keep up the great work!

A. Thanks for the links and interest in NeptuneCafe. The article where I referred to yoga is six years old now, and hardly anyone reads that. I wrote a more recent piece about how an injured pro wrestler used yoga to heal himself. So I am a fan of yoga and its benefits, and will keep your article on 18 ways yoga benefits health for future reference. I would like to merge astrology with yoga in some way, but it's not so easy. I will keep looking... 

re: Trump - Thanks again for showing the fascinating correlations between Trump’s astrology and his behavior. His upcoming eclipsed super full moon on January 31 ties interestingly to the date of his 2018 State of the Union Address, to be delivered only hours before on January 30. The event looks set to provide plenty of controversy, don’t you think?

A. Thanks for the feedback. That's an excellent insight about the State of the Union!

re: death - Are you good at seeing death in a chart? Are Ceres-Pluto aspects part of the signature?

A. In general, that’s not something I look into. Ceres-Pluto does deal with major life transformations, which may or may not include death, but at least the grieving process is evident, along with the survival mode mind-set, or its opposite, the giving up. I've looked at a few death charts and seen some commonalities. Richard Houck's "The Astrology of Death" is a good source, but half of it is Vedic astrology. Still, he points out the prominence of Jupiter in death charts (the ultimate journey), the lunar nodes activated, and the 4th house conditions (end of the matter).

re: John Bouvier Kennedy - I was reading an article about John Bouvier Kennedy Schlossbert (Caroline Kennedy's son) and how he looks so much like John Kennedy Jr. He's very much interested in climate change and has said he 'aspires to a career in politics". Perhaps you could do a newscope article on this young man and whether his chart has 'presidential potential'.

A. Thanks for the suggestion. Looks like a good idea...

re: Washington - Could you give me/us the Birth Date of the State of Washington...... ??? (Sure wish we still had access to all of your subjects, as they were/are a gold mind of information.... ) Thank YOU.

A. I have Nov 11, 1889 for the state of Washington, set in Olympia, time unknown. Penfield uses 2:27 pm based on his rectification. About “access", all back issues of NewsScope are available, I recently updated the menu where you can find the links. It's difficult to organize them because it makes NeptuneCafe so slow in adding new pages. 

re: NewsScope - I was just reading old Newscopes at the archives and I know I was blessed the day I found your site. Just reading your columns gives me relief, I think because you make sense of complex situations. Occasionally I even laugh! Thank you for all your enlightening columns. 

re: tax bill - I was looking at chart set for Trump signing tax bill. Is there a special significance to the fact that Saturn and Sun conjunct at 0 degree Capricorn. Just how often can that occur?

A. Yes, it's very rare, and is why I said that it's an empowerment of the corporations, especially since it's in the 10th house. The corporate tax rate was lowered from 35% to 21% - a huge subsidy of American corporations paid for by U.S. taxpayers and an expanded federal debt of $1.5 trillion. 

re: Oumuamua - I searched your website as best as I could to see if you have looked into Oumuamua, the first of its astronomical class as an interstellar object, but saw no results. If you have reviewed this item, please direct me to that. If you have otherwise looked into this, my question is what have you found. It was initially described as a comet, then changed to asteroid, but the first ever object from interstellar space. An article said it first appeared from the direction of the star Vega. That would be at 15-Cap-33 I believe, and close to conjunction with Pluto at the time. I thought I would try to see if I could find a date, time of discovery, and location at the observatory in Hawaii for this discovery. It is not easy as most references are to the date only, October 19 2017. 

A. Thanks for the info. I haven’t done anything on Oumuamua…
NewsScope for February 19, 2018
By Michael Wolfstar

Mueller’s Surprise Indictment of Russian Meddlers

Just one day after the much anticipated Solar Eclipse, Special Counsel Robert Mueller issued a 37-page indictment detailing exactly how the Russian government interfered in the U.S.’s 2016 presidential election.* Trump has steadfastly refused to acknowledge Russia’s role in the election, which flies in the face of the entire intelligence community's views and many of Trump’s top appointees, including National Security Adviser, H.R. McMaster. 
Astrologically, the stunning indictment has more effect on Trump than the actual charges, which do not accuse Trump campaign officials of any wrongdoing. The Solar Eclipse at 27º Aquarius was less than 1/2º from opposing Trump’s Mars in Leo, which suggests the surge of activity from his political rivals. Also, as previously described in this blog, transiting Saturn is seriously challenging Trump’s equivocations by activating his Mercury-Neptune square.

Saturn is transiting through Trump’s 5th house of children, giving him problems in this area lately. Renewed claims of secret affairs with a porn star and a Playmate have been met with cries of “fake news”. And in the Mueller indictment, the only hint of Trump involvement concerns officials who interacted with Russian spies “unwittingly”. This term is a likely reference to Donald Jr.’s meeting with Russian agents in June 2016. 
With Sagittarius on the 5th house cusp, Jupiter is this house’s ruling planet. Trump’s Gemini Sun trine Jupiter shows how he benefits from his close association with his children. Over the next few months, his progressed Venus is conjoining natal Jupiter, an unusually protective influence. Trump’s political rivals will have to wait until after the November election to mount a realistic challenge to his tenure. The problem here is that the Russians will continue their meddling in that election, and Trump shows no signs of reining them in. 
In a woman’s chart, Mars often represents the main man in her life. Melania’s Mars in Gemini squares Pallas, the political asteroid, and this combination resonates strongly with her politician husband. Currently, Melania’s progressed Juno is at 19º Aries and nearly octile her natal Mars-Pallas square. Additionally, her progressed Juno is under great stress here by being squared by transiting Pluto. These aspects tighten up over the coming year, and their marriage may very well reach a breaking point.
Although we have no birth time for Melania (April 26, 1970; Sjenica, Yugoslavia; noon), a noon birth looks quite promising and gives regal Leo Rising. Venus dignified in Taurus with a large network of aspects is prominently placed in the 10th house, and fits her career as a world class model. Venus sextiles her Juno in Pisces, allowing her to catch a husband through her exquisite, elegant looks. 

Natal Juno-Jupiter aspects often portend marrying well, above one’s station, or to a wealthy partner. Melania’s Juno is quincunx Jupiter (150º), and when she first met him in September 1998, the aspect between her Juno and progressed Jupiter had become precise (orb: 0º01’). They married on January 22, 2005 when her progressed Juno was at 14º Aries and trine her natal Vesta, which presumably is near her Leo Ascendant.
Melania Trump’s Juno under Stress

Traditionally, astrologers examine the conditions of the 7th house to consider intimate partnerships and marriage. The “love planets” Venus and Mars are also favorite factors, but one of the best ways to understand a marriage is by looking at Juno. Melania Trump’s Juno makes a great case study, especially considering her aloof attitude* as the First Lady amidst numerous claims of Donald’s infidelity.
The November Election

Jupiter is quincunx Uranus on November 7 and enters Sagittarius the next day, on the 8th. This astro-event is in effect for the first ten days of November, and indicates enthusiasm (Jupiter) about change (Uranus). This doubled Jupiter influence makes it a remarkable, trend-setting astro-event, and it just happens to unfold when the U.S. holds its mid-term elections on November 6.
The shift from Jupiter in magnetic, powerful Scorpio to idealistic, noble-minded Sagittarius tends to be subtle, but with this hard aspect to Uranus, the shift becomes readily apparent. Jupiter is said to be dignified in Sagittarius, its own sign, but it does have a downside. Jupiter in Sadge can be dogmatic, pompous, and self-righteous. We can expect candidates to be flouting their moral certitude. 

The Jupiter-Uranus vibe leading up to mid-term elections favors those who express independence of thought, the kind that doesn’t necessarily tout the party line or corporate priorities. Jupiter in Scorpio tends to expand its power base around a magnetic, charismatic figure and, for the Republicans, that’s been Donald Trump. Jupiter transitioning into Sagittarius represents a moral referendum on Trump’s whirlwind presidency.
It’s noteworthy that also on November 7, transiting Uranus retrogrades out of Taurus and back into Aries – another celestial signature for the changing times. If the Democrats regain control of Congress – which seems likely under these planetary shifts – we can expect some immediate legal action against Trump’s hold on the presidency. On January 1, 2019, the last Neptune transit to the U.S. progressed Sun takes place, perhaps signaling the beginning of the end to the cloud that hangs over the presidency.
