re: Trump - I can’t wait for newsscope this week! Do you think Trump will end his presidency early? Resignation or impeachment? Or will he last the next election or worse, get re-elected? My hope is for the Dems to take control midterm, but I imagine the public hates him enough to vote in 2020 this time.

re: Ford – Did you look up Gerald Ford's chart to see what was going on with him the day he took office? His progressed Mars on Aug 9, 1974 was at 28°41' Gemini, so that's pretty close to the eclipse point. His progressed Moon was at 26°16' Aquarius conjunct the U.S. Moon.

re: Trump - I looked at Trump's horoscope for the 2018 November elections. It couldn't be much better. Expect the Republicans to do much better than Democrats are hoping for. I am neither Democrat or Republican and plan to vote for neither.

re: Trump - it now appears that the 12th house aspects you speak of now reflect not only the payoffs on his illicit love affairs but with his own criminal behavior in violating campaign finance laws in in hush money to Stormy Daniels and the other girl, whose name urrently escapes me. Hope more light is shed on Trump' s 12th house criminal Kremlin secrets. Would also like to see you do current interpretations on the natal chart of the Republican Party and it's future and/or hopeful demise.

re: Trump - Your analysis of Trump’s eclipse problems this week was utterly prescient, as usual. Can’t wait for this upcoming Felony Friday for the solar side of this evolving story!

re: Trump - So do you think then the possibility of Trump’s impeachment is becoming more plausible with the eclipse? He seems to be spiraling into self destruct mode, not even his minders can keep up with him. I’m delighted. I’d love to see him impeached and indicted.

A. Impeachment likely won't happen unless the Democrats win big in Nov. Otherwise, the GOP-controlled Senate won't go along with that.... But it's looking more and more like Putin has something over Trump.

re: NewsScope - I have been reading your NewsScope column for several years. I very much enjoy reading about world events and leaders. I am also an astrologer, have done a few professional readings, but it was not for me. I have a blog, which I loved writing, however needed to focus on paying bills.
        I noticed you are migrating to Facebook, and some of your readers prefer a website. I don’t know much about Homestead, but it does not seem to the best solution for your work anymore.   

re: Solar Eclipse - Is there significance to Part of Fortune conjunct Ascendant (exact to the minute) and quincunx the North Node? 

A. The Part of Fortune is always conjunct the Ascendant during the New Moon or Solar Eclipse. And the Lunar Node axis is generally within a few degrees of the Ascendant, but it can be the North or South Node. By definition, the Lunar Nodes are where the Moon’s path crosses the ecliptic, so eclipses happen when the New or Full Moon is close to the Lunar Node axis.

re: Facebook - about "Putting NewsScope on FB might be a good alternative to using this homestead provider, since it takes so long to update pages." I'm not entirely sure what this means, but if it means that your column would no longer appear on Neptune Cafe, I'd beg you to not do this. I enjoy your column every week, ever since I found the site through Richard Nolle's site, but I am not on Facebook and never will be. Please don't make it so those of us that don't participate in a particular forum, however popular it might be, can't access your wonderful analyses.

A. I’ve gotten a lot of feedback on the migration of NewsScope to Facebook. For the time being, it will be both here and there. At this site, the pages take several hours every week to update, while on FB, it’s a straightforward copy and paste. The lead NewsScope piece is going up on FB on Sundays.

re: SA-PL - It's discouraging to think that US politics are going to keep getting worse until at least January 2020 with the exact Saturn-Pluto conjunction. Is there a way to dodge the bullet? Increase compassion? Any remedy?

A. As I’ve been suggesting, the placement of Ceres and Eris within the SA-PL configuration is a major clue, and refers to the empowerment of women. We’ve seen this already with the #MeToo movement, and the increasing number of women getting elected to Congress and other political and corporate offices.

re: Rodman - I have long touted Dennis Rodman as the mediator between the US and Korea, so thank you for your article about him being the unofficial ambassador. Deep down I think he was probably the real reason this summit happened, as he has been planting and sowing the seeds for nearly five years, as you pointed out. 

Re: FB - I respectfully suggest Newscope not appear on Facebook, which is a proven privacy violator, and instead use a good alternative: 8 Best Facebook Alternatives With Focus On Privacy For 2018 - While most of us knew about Facebook's relentless data collection practices, Cambridge Analytica revelation has forced many of us to raise questions and look for Facebook alternatives.

A. I’ve been on Facebook for years and haven’t had any problems with privacy issues. Putting NewsScope on FB might be a good alternative to using this homestead provider, since it takes so long to update pages. There are vibrant astrology groups there, and unlike this page, it's mobile friendly.

Re: Trump – Hey, t pluto square US p mars @ 17:54 Libra for final time. I've mentioned before that I noticed this aspect first in spring of 2016 just as Trump was getting traction in the primaries and then again almost exact when he was sworn in. Again, during the Nov. 2018 election, Pluto is @19:10 Libra, hardly one degree past exact. I want to hope it means that the current gangster element in politics is over. Can you 'make my day'?

A. Good story idea, thanks... 

re: Meghan - Duchess of Sussex .. About her Part of Fortune. Your article uses the Part of Fortune using the day chart formula, hence 17 ish deg Virgo. But her natal chart is nocturnal, Sun is below horizon...My software therefore gives her PoF as 1Ge 23" ? I thought it was standard practice to use the PoF formula based on whether the chart is day/night .

A. Yes, I always use the daytime formula. I've written an extensive article (published in Dell Horoscope magazine) explaining why this is the way to go. It’s an analysis of ten presidents and how the Part of Fortune is a key indicator in their elections and general good or bad fortunes.
     SolarFire used to have the default Part of Fortune set to the daylight formula, but after Rob Hand’s research into ancient astrology (which I don’t agree with), the SF default was switched to day and night time formulas. You have the option of making the default the daytime formula for all birth times. 
     This is further explained in my article on Joan Quigley and the Part of Fortune. It was also published in Dell Horoscope magazine and re-posted on my website here.

re: Trump’s SR - Are you sure that he'll be in Washington when the Solar Return happens? Did you try it out in Singapore??

A. Solar Returns are set for the residence, not the point where one happens to be on the globe at the time. The notion that one can enhance their SR prospects by being at a particularly lucky place during the SR is fake news perpetuated by dishonest astrologers seeking to make a buck. 

re: Kennedy - Since you're so good at analyzing the Kennedy clan, I thought I'd see something about the recently released "Chappaquiddick" film in your column. (Did I miss it?)
  After watching the film, I looked up the charts of Ted Kennedy, his wife Joan, and Mary Jo Kopechne (the passenger who drown -- actually, she suffocated -- in his car on that fateful night of July 18, 1969). What's really interesting is that ALL THREE OF THEM HAD THE PROGRESSED MOON CONJUNCT SATURN!  

A. You're referring to an article I wrote on the Kennedy clan for Dell Horoscope magazine, maybe 10 years ago. I haven't really kept up on their comings and goings. That's fascinating that the three people involved all have progressed Moon-Saturn, tragic event not only for them but for the nation.
  Maybe there's a new bunch of Kennedys on the horizon who can escape the Kennedy curse. 

Re: The Big One - Referring to " the big one" do you mean an earthquake in Hawaii or California? I will be in Los Angeles with my daughter on May 29th, her birthday. Do you think we'll be safe there? 

A. I was referring to Kiluaea in Hawaii. I think you'll be fine in Los Angeles. In my research, major earthquakes happen during outer planet alignments, and we don't have any now. The outer planets have some kind of gravitational or electro-magnetic influence that the smaller and faster moving planets dont. It may relate to sunspot activity, solar flares... 

re: Giuliani Some amazing connections between the charts of Trump and Giuliani might be profitably explored in Newscope. Thanks for your continuing Newscope service. 

re: Trump - Thank you for your positive posting about Trump. For all the same reasons as everyone else, I can’t stand the guy. But I do also acknowledge that he alone has gotten the Korea situation where it is today and I appreciate your willingness to acknowledge that and also get an insight into the astrology behind it. Thanks also for the posting on Avenatti. I love the guy! 

re: Russia - yes, this week's column was very interesting starting with the Russian chart. It seems they had an astrologer's advice since the Sun is at the MC, Jupiter is in the 10th, and Pluto is strong in Scorpio in the 2nd house of values.
       Since the Russian Sun is conjunct trump's Sun, they certainty have a friend in him. It's disconcerting that Russia's natal Mars inconjuncts the U.S. ascendant, exactly, and Russia's natal Eris is conjunct the U.S. progressed MC this year.   

re: Kim Jong Un - I'm baffled by Kim's sudden attitude and policy reversals. After years of posturing, bullying, and threatening the world with nuclear annihilation, now he's transformed himself into a rational human being? It seems unlikely. Can we trust the transformation? Is it a ruse? If not, how and why did it occur? Is it permanent? So many questions... Can you give us some insight?

A. As I suggest in 4/30 blog, it may be due in large part to the fear that Trump will actually start a nuclear exchange with North Korea. Trump is just crazy enough to do that, or so it seems. 

re: Uranius Just curious: is there a degree of orb associated with the upcoming Uranus into Taurus. My husband’s Asc is 3 deg. Wasn't sure how to read that, or if I need to. My Sag Asc at 0 is quincunx; is that going to be troublesome?

A. There’s an old astro-proverb that says Mars arrives ahead of time, Uranus on time, and Saturn is late. This refers to when the influence manifests, and Uranus is unusual in that it’s most evident when the aspect is exact. So your husband may feel it coming, but nothing happens yet. You may be more in line for some changes with this transit.

This tri-wheel section of Trump's chart shows how the July 27 Lunar Eclipse at 4º44' Leo aligned with Trump's progressed Midheaven, and also activated his progressed saturn octile his 10th house Uranus.
NewsScope for August 27, 2018
By Michael Wolfstar

Trump Eclipsed

A regular reader writes: “I can’t wait for newsscope this week! Do you think Trump will end his presidency early?” Looking at previous presidents who have left office before their term was up, eclipses play a decisive role. The key markers are the Midheaven, any planet close to the Midheaven, and the progressed Midheaven. Many astrologers predicted that the August 21, 2017 Solar Eclipse would bring Trump’s downfall since it conjoined his Leo Ascendant and Mars. 
But that eclipse just illuminated his melodramatic personality on the global stage. However, the recent Lunar Eclipse is a different story, as I described in the July 23 NewsScope: “Trump’s progressed Midheaven, representing his evolving professional status, is at 3º Leo – right in line with this very challenging Lunar Eclipse. The prospects for a national leader’s progressed Midheaven being eclipsed are not good.”

Looking back, the Solar Eclipse on June 19, 1974 took place at 28º Gemini, and only 0º09’ from Nixon’s 10th house Pluto. He resigned on August 9, 1974 – only a few weeks later – when transiting Saturn was conjunct the U.S. Sun. JFK’s Saturn near his Midheaven was hit by the July 20, 1963 Solar Eclipse with an orb of only 0º15’, and he was assassinated four months later. This eclipse also hit the U.S. Pluto, the nation’s ruling planet.
The July 27 Lunar Eclipse was 1º28’ from Trump’s progressed Midheaven, so a bit wide to expect immediate departure or impeachment. The exact date when he leaves will likely be when the U.S. horoscope is simultaneously activated in a major way. A Serbian astrologer, who uses the 2:21 pm Scorpio Rising chart for the U.S., makes the case that the evil fixed star Algol is connected to all the U.S. presidents who have faced impeachment. Trump has Algol at his Midheaven. 
Mike Pence, Waiting in the Wings

Mike Pence immediately assumes the presidency if Trump either resigns or is forced out of office. In evaluating a horoscope, I generally rely on outer planet transits and the conditions of the progressed angles and inner planets. Unfortunately, all we have is Pence’s date and place: June 7, 1959 in Columbus, Indiana. A speculative birth time of 6:20 pm puts his Jupiter near a Scorpio Ascendant. 
Pence was born with his Gemini Sun sextile Uranus (June 7, 1959; Columbus, IN), indicating a rather progressive, quick thinking, talkative and highly individualized personality. However, with Jupiter conjunct his Scorpio Ascendant, religion has become a dominant part of his personality, which in turn shapes his political views. Also, Saturn in Capricorn trine his Virgo Midheaven is quite traditional and conservative.

Pence is currently going through his second Saturn return. If the 6:20 pm birth time is close, then his natal Saturn trines a Virgo Midheaven. Over the past month and continuing into October, transiting Saturn is opposing his Cancer Moon, perhaps making it emotionally difficult to defend his support of Trump. After this phase, Saturn goes on to trine his Midheaven and conjoin his natal Saturn, likely marking a consolidation of his position as a national leader.
Pence is currently touting the U.S. space program, and advocating the creation of a Space Force. His natal Uranus in Leo corresponds to the proud projection of technological know-how. Since his progressed Uranus is right on the U.S. Midheaven, he has made a militarily-strengthened Space Force his calling card. Regarding the sudden assumption of power, Pence’s progressed Sun is now only three months from conjoining natal Uranus. Uranus, “the Awakener”, is dovetailing with transiting Saturn in putting him front and center on the national stage.
* Pence’s chart was previously reviewed here.
September’s Top Five Astro-Events

1. Saturn turns direct on the 6th while trine Uranus in the Earth signs of Capricorn and Taurus. The harmonious link-up between these two outer planets has brought us a robust economy, and the dominance of corporate agendas over all social, political, and environmental concerns. Saturn goes on to conjoin Pluto in January 2020, further strengthening the power and influence of the Corporatocracy. 

2. Mars enters Aquarius on the 10th and then squares Uranus on the 18th, marking an unusually volatile and dangerous nine-day phase. With the involvement of Venus and Lilith, many tenuous romances will be tested, love triangles can bring sudden splits. Most relationships will go through a difficult patch. Social networks may interfere with more intimate match-ups. Mars hits Trump’s chart particularly hard from the 18th through 22nd. Stay alert, drive defensively.

3. Jupiter sextiles Pluto from the 6th through 14th when major financial news moves to the headlines. In Scorpio and Capricorn, Jupiter and Pluto in this combination mark the movement of huge sums of institutional money involving the largest corporations, hedge funds, and banks. In personal finance, look to redistribute fixed and liquid assets. Take profits, consider the Big Picture. Those with planets activated by the August 11 Solar Eclipse are due for some major developments.
4. The U.S. progressed Moon enters Capricorn on the 8th while in the 2nd house of money, encouraging investors to be more practical and conservative. This dovetails with transiting Saturn opposite the U.S. Venus, which is in effect all month, becoming exact on the 29th. We can expect that the stock market will be making a pullback from its recent record-breaking highs. In Mueller’s investigation, “follow the money” becomes the chief operational tactic.

5. The Autumn Equinox on the 22nd (9:55 pm EDT) features the Sun entering Libra with Mercury as both oppose Chiron and square Saturn. This highly stressful configuration set in the nation’s capital points to troubled, wounded leadership over the coming three months. At the same time, the Sun trines Mars and the Gemini Ascendant, suggesting that the president remains socially insulated with a rock-solid base of support. Venus in Scorpio squaring the elevated Mars and Lilith further describes sexual scandals in the highest office.
