re: Uranus cycle - Just read your post for the week. Thank you for your keen insight as always. My question is, taking a cue from your latest… seems we have a potential Obamagate situation highlighting McCarthyism (FISA and Trump Tower) prior to the election. Seems this has potential (legs) to show the deep state’s hand in the leaks and the MSM complacency (various articles written since last year confirming the FISA requests). Do you see the deep state being exposed?

A. The 21 year cycle related to transiting Uranus's hard aspects to the U.S. 9th house Mercury have consistently brought congressional inquiries at the highest level. I speculated that this time, it would be about Trump's Russian connection. Depending on your political filters, you may see this in a different way, such as an Obamagate inquiry.

re: KellyAnne Conway - Thank you for doing the in-depth analysis of KellyAnne Conway in the February 13 NewsScope. "Sensitive and empathetic" are not terms I would gravitate to in describing KellyAnne as she presents herself to the public, but putting my personal feelings about her aside, I admire how you focus on the astrological facts as they present themselves and the article was very illuminating. Your political analyses are very helpful in understanding these strange times. Thank you for the great work!

re Emmanuel Macron - Thank you for your, once again, gifted insights. We, your collective audience, are fortunate you found, no, created a space to share your voice.

re: U.S. Scorpio Rising chart - Long time reader of your work (loved Tomorrow's News).I have long used secondary progressions (SP) as part of analyzing charts. However, I wanted to thank you for pointing out the power of lesser discussed SP transits, such as sky transits to SP positions. The USA Scorpio rising chart time and time again proves its merit, especially with the last election cycle. 
  When I look at the USA Scorpio SP chart, transiting Neptune is going conjunct the SP Sun in the 8th house (upheaval, transformation) on March 17th. With the Leo on the USA Scorpio chart's MC, one can only think of the recent headlines regarding the persistence assertions of mistruths coming from the White House, as well as allegations of back channel influence from foreign powers. Within the week transits Sun & Mercury hit the USA Scorpion SP SUN corresponding with more headlines. Further, as you noted, Neptune is crossing the nadir of Trump's relocated Moscow chart! Thanks again for you insights. 

A. Yes, transits to progressions are a very important forecasting tool. To be clear, the U.S. progressed Sun is now at 12º Pisces (not Scorpio), and transiting Neptune will be conjunct this progressed Sun on March 17, as you indicate. However, the progressions fall into the natal houses, so this configuration takes place in the U.S. 4th house of domestic affairs. By the way, due to Neptune's retrograde cycle, this configuration was in play during much of the 2016 election campaign.

re: SuperMoon and Elon Musk - As always i look forward to read your New article every early Monday morning. I was wondering whether you will have time to look into coming New supermoon and Black lilith combination on April 10th of this year !!!! At my age of 70+ i have very little knowledge of this coming phenomenon but may be you can enlighten us all to what to expect from this astrologically. 
  Also in past you mentioned about doing Elon Musk and his ventures to see how successful will be so if you have time and if you feel like doing to educate us, i will be highly appreciative.
    Search for innumerable politicians or 
celebrities within NewsScope archives
re: Mike Pence - Suggestion: Please take a look at Mike Pence's chart to see if he could become President should Trump exit before his term ends. Perhaps at the August Eclipse.

re: Susan Rice - Just wondered what your thoughts are in regards to the Susan Rice leaks and the Neptune transit - tied to the Scorpio Rising Chart? Does it show any information regarding how many people will be revealed and attached to this crime? 
     I know you are not a fan of Pres. Trump (red herrings comment regarding voter fraud – I live in CA, I beg to differ, Russian connection, nothing has been tied to him – 3 different investigations many months later and the imperial leadership comment – less than (1) year in office). We don’t have to agree politically. I can respect constructive differences of opinion. I look forward to reading your articles and your analysis is always informative. 

re: Trump - When commentators call him the "Mad King", it's so astrologically astute--even though they're oblivious to that. He is so simply manifesting his chart in so many ways. He 's like a beginner's class for aspiring astrology students.

re: Trump - Newscope - well done! Thanks.

re: chart links - My chart has 5 planets conjunct the U.S.'s natal planets and recently I looked at Trump's chart. His progressed Saturn at the MD at 2 degrees Leo is conjunct my natal Mars/Pluto midpoint. Is this an issue?Thank you for a great column!

A. Trump's tenure might feel oppressive at some level, otherwise, it's not an issue unless you actually work for him. Millions of Americans have links to Trump's chart.
re: Trump's Solar Return - Jupiter on his Asc could ensure that he overdoes it--and by "it", I mean "everything". This makes me think about his need for BIG. He exaggerates incessantly. Everything's "HUGE". So his "bigness" is something about which he feels inadequate. Anyway, now this huge bigness exaggeration thing takes center stage. I don't think that it necessarily will be a good thing. He needs a year with Solar Return Saturn on his Asc to small him down some. 

re: Trump's 12th house - I am having trouble locating your post on Trump's troubles with his progressed moon entering his 12th house. I believe it is sometime this month. Will you please help me? As always, I look forward to reading your Monday NewsScope. Your interpretations are brilliant.

A. Here are the most recent pieces on his progressed Moon entering his 12th house:

re: NBA Finals - I wonder if you are aware that we now have birth certificate times for both LeBron James and Stephen Curry. ABC News did a feature about them, according to AstroDatabank.

A. Thanks for that info. 

re: NBA Finals - I always love the astro-events. But I'm not terribly interested in basketball. Your discussion of what's happening and why is interesting, though. 

re: astro-event #1 - You wrote that the "Best days for romantic outings and adventures are on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th to 10th, 18th, 19th, 23rd and 24th." My niece's art show takes place on June 22nd and 23rd. It sounds like this aspect may help her. But when you say "romantic encounters and adventures", do you mean that adventures in general will be romantic (because more people are involved in relationships than in art)? 

A. This is a Venus indicator. I said romantic, but it surely could be about art. Most definitely.

re: Trump supporters -  I enjoy your analysis but I am dumbstruck that you continue to publish "queries" from Trump supporters armed with the alternative fact narrative. Giving them a platform is ridiculous and takes away from your credibility. The latest is the query regarding the "crimes" of Susan Rice. First, incidental collection of Americans during a counter intelligence investigation is the norm. And it is the prerogative of the NSA, the CIA and the FBI to unmask the names of the Americans as they see fit. There is no crime. Has there be a trial? Unless there has, why are you printing spin and misinformation?
  Similar to the "crimes" of Hillary Clinton. Was there a trial that we missed? It is right wing propaganda that you continually to give air time to and it is getting old. How about just be neutral? And do not give a platform to bs.

A. Unfortunately for those with hard and fast political opinions, NewsScope is read by followers of both the left and right. We all assess what's happening through our political, religious, and culture filters. I try and be as objective as possible in the actual articles. Readers' opinions in this feedback section are their own, not mine.
re: Otto Warmbier - Any insights into Otto Warmbier’s horoscope as it relates to the USA and North Korea? His story has got to be one of the most obscure and heartbreaking I’ve heard, it made me weep for him. His death conjured an emotional reaction in me that caught me by surprise. I want his death to be avenged swiftly, severely, and unequivocally. It’s so unlike me to feel that especially in reference to such a wildcard country like North Korea, but it’s incomprehensible what that boy must have gone through.

re: Otto Warmbier - Even I who try to isolate myself from all pain was moved by the coma Otto Warmbier was brought back in. This was very tragic. And it hurt one's heart. That young man returned to his family like that for something so small. Very vicious what was done to him and totally unnecessary. 

re: health care - Can you give insight into whether it will become law? The irony is that his political base are the folks who will be financially & medically devastated by its passage. Are the Republican congressmen & senators aware of the consequences for themselves at the ballot box? I'm mystified.re: health care - Isn't the dark of the moon, and in this case, (specifically the day before the new moon) the worst time to start or unveil a new project? What does this bode for Trumpcare?

A. Yes, that sounds right. Notice how the plan was developed in secret, which is in accord with the Balsamic Moon phase, the Dark Moon. It doesn't bode well...

re: Trump's 12th house - So well done, again. Progressed Moon in 12th, Trump is showing us all what 'self-undoing' is all about. I know, i have Moon in the 12th. His boat won't stay afloat much longer.

re: the Queen - Will the Queen stop being the Queen? If Regulus applies to anyone on the entire planet, wouldn't the Solar Eclipse to it affect an actual queen of all people? You talked about "royals"--actual and otherwise. That's what got me wondering. She is right up there at the top of the list of "royals". 

re: Mexico - I am a novice in astrology but, I really enjoy your analysis. Do you know of any reliable chart for Mexico as a country? As you probably know we are facing difficult times here.

A. Thanks for your interest... Yes, I use the 1917 horoscope, and you can read about it here: neptunecafearchives./Mexico
I haven't looked at Mexico's chart in some time, but perhaps it's time to do so.

re: Trump - Yes, it is good to "take a break from the melodramatic Trump Presidency." I'm tuning him out more and more.

re: Brexit - I love reading Newscope every Monday but I have waited so long for an article on Brexit and I don't remember seeing it. We Europeans living in UK are very worried about the UK deal falling short of meeting the EU deal. Please can you do a detailed article on what's to come from now until official Brexit March 2019?

A. That's a good story idea. It's great to take a break from the melodramatic Trump presidency.

re: Bugatti - Thanks for the Bugatti info and the video. Now we know at least how the Germans pronounce the name Chiron. Like... sheer'-own' ....I'm starting to save up my $3 million today.
re: Scaramucci's Nodes - You wrote: "Scaramucci’s Mercury is also in Capricorn and conjunct the Moon’s South Node, indicating that his new job is karmic, something that was meant to be." I've always read that the South Node shows you where you've been (and so, you feel very comfortable and familiar there), and the North Node shows you where you need to be going--THAT is your destiny.

A. Mercury is a weight on his past, showing talents as well as problem areas. His North Node is ruled by the Moon, which is in Libra and squares his Mercury. He'll regret losing his wife because equitable partnership is his higher destiny, but the ambitious Mercury in Capricorn is overwhelming.

re: Jane Austin - Thank you so much for such varied and interesting content. Especially the Jane Austen bio. I have always resented her kow-towing attitude towards men, now I know she was a victim of her time. 

re: Eclipses - Does an eclipse really make huge chnges when closely touching someone's chart?

A. Yes the eclipse can make for dramatic developments... generally related to the planet and the house being activated. A well aspected planet can bring windfalls, and otherwise not such favorable tidings. Even mainstream media is talking aobut what astrolgoers are predicting. See Newsweek's article here: http://www.newsweek.com/total-solar-eclipse-trump-astrology-prediction-643776

re: Uranus-Neptune - Will you ever cover the flat earth movement? According to independent research the Earth seems to be flat like the Ancients said. The heliocentric model is just a model and unproven. Try "flat earth" on google and see for yourself. It's disturbing. I believe it's the Uranus Neptune Cycle developing with the added notion that Neptune is in Pisces, so we are sensible to deceptions and frauds. Also something regarding religions and science and the clashing of the two, while accepted science has become a religion and unscientific. 

re: Eclipses - What are your thoughts on solar eclipse? i see Mars triggers it 9/3. I am concerned. I read an article about Hawaii preparing for possible nuclear attack by North Korea. Also saw their latest ballistic missile launch is able to reach west USA and maybe further. Is this simply fear mongering or is this a justifiable concern!?! 

A. I've written many times about the potential military conflict with North Korea - check recent archives. It is a matter of concern... Trump's besieged, and he may use a conflict with North Korea to distract from the FBI investigation into his Russian connections. Or, another way to see it is that Kim Jong Il is insane and needs to be reigned in, and Trump is the one who could do it....
NewsScope for August 7, 2017
By Michael Wolfstar

John F. Kelly, Trump’s New Chief of Staff

Trump’s original Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, was ousted by the new Communications Director, Anthony Scaramucci, who had just replaced Sean Spicer. Then Trump’s new Chief of Staff, General John F. Kelly, advised Trump to get rid of Scaramucci, which happened last week. As Secretary of Homeland Security, Kelly often complained about how dysfunctional the White House was, and now he’s doing something about it. 
re: Trump - Some reporters on CNN say that their inside contacts talk about how Trump is really panicking now about the investigation because it's looking at his personal finances. 
You've said that the last time his Progressed Moon moved through his 12th house, the casino thing happened--essentially, his financial house of cards collapsed. Is it safe to conclude that this is where it appears to be heading? It's disturbing and fascinating all at the same time.

A. Now that Mueller has impaneled a grand Jury, trump's taxes will be inspected. The announcement came as transiting Sun and Mars were right on Trump's 12th house Pluto, which suggests the evidence they are tracking. Pluto here may be associated with illegal racketeering, ie., getting funding from foreign or illegal sources. It should get clearer when Trump's progressed Moon arrives at his natal Pluto in January 2018. 

re: the Mooch - Zingo! You may be psychic as well as being an awesome astrologer!

re: the Mooch - Wow! We both saw the same thing--Scaramucci not lasting that long. I had commented about it to my husband 2 days before he was fired. BUT, I NEVER THOUGHT IT WOULD BE ONLY 11 DAYS!!! I had thought/guessed around 6 months.

A. Scaramucci's potty mouth got him in trouble, reflecting the downside of Mercury conjunct his South Node.
Kelly’s steady Taurus Sun trines Mars in disciplined Virgo (May 11, 1950; Boston, Massachusetts; time unknown), readily making him a career military man. His Sun also squares Pluto, indicating a willingness to use absolute force when the need arises; it’s especially useful in military situations. Juno and Saturn accompany Kelly’s Mars in Virgo, giving him an enduring marriage and a military career with numerous medals.

Kelly’s Pallas, the political strategy asteroid, is located at 8º Scorpio, exactly conjunct the U.S. Scorpio Ascendant where it helps him improve the White House’s public image. Kelly’s Pallas forms a tight trine to Trump’s Mercury at 8º Cancer, which in itself is afflicted by a square to Neptune and opposition to Pallas. Kelly’s Pallas trine Trump’s Mercury offers an opportunity to re-shape the White House organization.
Another telling dynamic between Kelly’s and Trump’s charts is that Kelly’s Mars at 22º Virgo is precisely square Trump’s Gemini Sun and within one degree of squaring his Sagittarius Moon. The forceful nature of Mars is pushing Trump along specific lines of action, and Trump is listening. This month, transiting Saturn turns direct at 21º Sagittarius, and the following six weeks will activate this configuration. Saturn, as the natural ruler of order, is being played out by General Kelly, who may yet end the chaos in the White House – if it’s not too little too late.
North Korea and the Solar Eclipse

Tensions continue to mount between North Korea and the United States. Northy Korea’s government now says that its missiles can carry nuclear warheads and reach anywhere in the U.S., claims that put its nuclear program far ahead of previous predictions. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson offered stern rebukes, while national security adviser H.R. McMaster said one option was to launch a “pre-emptive war.”
North Korea’s horoscope is set for September 10, 1948 (8:50 pm; Pyongyang, NK), putting its Sun at 17º Virgo. The Sun, as representative of the hermit kingdom’s leader,* is being empowered by a trine from transiting Pluto, leaving little doubt that the nuclear program is indeed developing rapidly. A Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Sagittarius makes an odd combination for one of the most oppressed populations on the planet, but this conjunction takes place in the 8th house of shared resources. 

North Korea has a financial benefactor (Jupiter in 8th) in China, which supplies some 85% of its trade – the rest is black market deals in weapons and drugs. The 8:50 pm time is rectified, and partially based on the start of the Korean War in 1950. At the time, progressed Mars reached the Descendant as the United States and the USSR divided the Korean peninsula and waged a proxy military conflict.
The Solar Eclipse on August 21 takes place at 28º52’ Leo. Astrologers use a range of effective orbs (generally, 1º to 5º), but agree that the tighter the connection to a natal planet, the more powerful its effect. North Korea’s Saturn is located at 28º56’ Leo, only 0º04’ from a precise hit. This puts its institutional structures on notice of impending danger. It’s no coincidence that Trump’s Mars at 26º Leo is also aligned with this eclipse. His Mars line runs right through North Korea.

Luis Fonsi Wins Big with “Despacito”

Last week the Spanish-speaking pop-reggaeton song “Despacito” (meaning “slowly”) became the most watched Youtube video ever, simultaneously becoming the first video to break 3 billion views. The original idea for the music and lyrics came from Puerto Rican singer Luis Fonsi, and he invited his colleague, rapper Daddy Yankee, to collaborate and bring “that explosion that only he can bring to the table”. 
Luis Fonsi was born with his Aries Sun trine Saturn in creative Leo (April 15, 1978, San Juan, Puerto Rico; time unknown), a terrific success-oriented combination that steadily builds a career over time. The fiery Aries Sun also trines Neptune in Sagittarius, making a Fire Grand Trine. Neptune’s conjunction to strategic Pallas adds musical inspiration and rhythm to his songs, making his performances engaging and intriguing.

Mercury in Aries also participates in this Grand Trine and is strongly accented by close aspects to Uranus and Pluto. These aspects make Fonsi and Outer-Planet-Person (OPP), or one who has a natural drive to make an impact on the collective in some way. The hard aspects to outer planets can bring inner conflict between personal needs and the urge to transcend cultural norms and expectations. For Fonsi, the Grand Trine has assured him of an easier ride.
“Despacito”, the music video, was released on January 12, 2017 when the outer planets were all closely activating Fonsi’s Sun and Mercury. Transiting Saturn and Uranus were trine each other as they both made a neat overlay to Fonsi’s Grand Trine. As transiting Uranus conjoined his Sun in late April, “Despacito” received its one billionth view. That’s also when Justin Bieber released a remix version, which helped improve the song’s performance. Transiting Uranus is now returning to the conjunction with his Sun, promising evermore fame and world renown.
