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: 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....
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.
re: women in tech - I hope you will deal with the Google engineer being fired for his screed on how women aren't suited for leadership or tech jobs. I noticed that Google fired him on the lunar eclipse day. I had read that one of the things that eclipses do is to bring hidden things to light.
      It's certainly true that tech is a place for men who believe in the supremacy of men. It has not helped that tech has a collection of white men dug into this belief, but also men from other cultures who think it is an insult to report to a female manager or believe women can lead, although they may be okay to be around to do clean up work.
      The Google engineer that got fired went to Harvard, and it also came to light that his professors had to write a public apology for him when he did a skit in class that implied that great male scientist only rely on women to give them sex as they work their way to greatness. A lot of news outlets didn't report that find.     
       Anyhow, eclipses bringing the dark side to light, here we have a woman-hater who has a history of stunts, and a president who supports Nazis and white terrorists who come out into the light as if it's "both sides" in fairness.

A. Another way to look at this is about the current Lilith-Saturn conjunction, as I wrote in August's astro-event #5: "Patriarchal worldviews clash with the rising Goddess energy." 

re: data - Astrodatabank now has a BC time of 8:58 AM for Kellyanne Conway. Her Moon is exactly trine Pluto, Pisces is rising, and Jupiter is exactly on the Placidus 6th house cusp .Astrodatabank also has a BC time of 12:23 PM for Christie.

A. Good to know, thanks!

re: Trump’s Mars return - I've been wondering about Trump's impending Mars Return (on the heels of the eclipse). Hmm...What can you make of this? Anything?

re: opioid crisis - With opioid drug deaths on the rise, how is this reflected in the U.S. progressed natal chart or current transits of our outer planets, etc. Just curious about your take on this.

A. Good story idea....

re: Yellowstone - Just curious: I am aware that eclipses are often coupled with earthquakes - is there a chart for Yellowstone NP, and if so does it 
reflect seismic possibilities? I'm not sure Mexico City is connected, unless it's foretelling of the beginnings of plate movement farther up the road.

A. Yes, Yellowstone has a birth chart, set for March 1, 1872 when it was set aside as the U.S.’s first national park. As far as earthquakes go, note that transiting Uranus is exactly squaring Yellowstone’s natal Uranus. However, it seems there’s something else going on, since it’s simultaneous with other earthquakes, hurricanes, and a simmering volcano. Possibly these are related to the surge in solar flares over the last two weeks.  

re: Jupiter and Saturn - In 2019 I will experience both Jupiter and Saturn returns simultaneously, born in 1960. Any bearing on my generation? thanks for your time.

A. Two Saturn Returns and five Jupiter Returns occur at age 59 for everyone. These overlapping cycles make this age particularly noteworthy for most people. Many begin retirement, while others have found a niche and want to keep going. Many born during the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Capricorn (1960-61) are particularly ambitious, and have become pillars of society. 

re: Louise Hay - In your recent article you state that her Neptune conjunct Part of Fortune in her second house created her self-help book fortune, but Neptune and POF are in her first house. (and Neptune can never progress into the second house because at 26:58 it went retrograde; she was about 40).
       She was a powerful (Leo) psychic (Neptune in the first) and lucky (conjunct the POF), but also challenged by (a square from Saturn and an opposition from Jupiter)-duh the patriarchy!
       Maybe Vesta, the Priestess, which IS in her second house, in Virgo (books and teachers) and conjunct the Black Moon (fierce feminine) accounts for why women love her. She showed women how the patriarchy had infiltrated their minds and how detrimental that could be. Vesta is trine her Mars in the tenth so it's connected to her career and activities.

A. Yes, Vesta is powerfully placed in her 2nd house. Although Neptune is technically in her 1st house, it’s less than three degrees from her 2nd house cusp, and so a predominant influence over this house’s affairs.

The 2020 Saturn-Pluto Conjunction

The important Saturn-Pluto conjunction in 2020* (January 12, 2020; 11:59 am; Washington, DC) acts as a magnetic attractor for the shape of events. Saturn and Pluto are at 22º Capricorn and joined by the Sun and Mercury at 21º and 23º Capricorn respectively, making a four-planet stellium in the sign associated with corporate, political, and socio-economic structures. From this build-up, the transition into a global corporatocracy seems inevitable.
​* The 2020 Saturn-Pluto conjunction was previously profiled here
​* Charles Harvey established the 7:00 am time for the death of Juan II, which marked the beginning of Spain as a political alliance. For additional astrological background and narrative, see Ed Tamplin’s article here
re: Pop Quiz - To me, Mars (in Scorpio) square Pluto would mean that every transiting planet that contacted Mars would be challenged by the lord of Scorpio himself, Pluto, to use that energy to produce or accrue power. Rex did that for Exon; Harvey did this for his co. and himself.
       Harvey's conservative Capricorn Moon opposes Uranus in Cancer, sponsor of the Women's Liberation Movement, and squares both Eris in Aries and Saturn in Libra slightly wide), but at least a T-square that created difficult energy circumstances for him repeatedly, where he clearly failed repeatedly.  
       Rex's sensitive Pisces Moon conjuncts Venus and Pallas. He likes traditional women but with these three trine Uranus in Cancer he's okay with non-trad. women also, plus Uranus is conjunct his ascendant! He must be pretty non-trad. himself or appear to be.

A. This is the best answer received, and mostly on target. Only one thing I would point out and that is that we don't have an accurate birth time for either of these two, so the charts used are the default noon times. Therefore Rex likely doesn't have Uranus on the Ascendant.

re: Trump’s progressed Moon – In Trump’s top five astro-events, couldn't this progressed Moon event also represent women in the family? This is like punch number one of an astrological one-two punch. Moon-Pluto and Venus-Uranus? Yikes.

A. In general, the progressed Moon doesn’t act like the natal Moon and the key phrases we usually associate with the Moon. The progressed Moon is a timer of emotionally signficant events. Still, transiting Saturn has been around his natal Moon, so the observations still holds.
If you believe the astronomers, Pluto is no longer a planet, but classified as a “dwarf planet”. In this same classification they have put the asteroid Ceres and the recently discovered trans-Neptunian planetoid, Eris. The chart for the Saturn-Pluto conjunction looks much different when we add Ceres and Eris: Ceres joins Saturn and Pluto at 22º Capricorn, while Eris at 23º Aries squares the entire stellium. Do Ceres and Eris change the way we might interpret how this Saturn-Pluto cycle is shaping up? 

Ceres, the largest and first discovered asteroid, is already deployed in many astrologers’ charts, but Eris is the newcomer with an allegedly powerful but relatively unknown influence. The 2020 Saturn-Pluto horoscope features Ceres right in the middle of the Capricorn stellium, and squared by the troublemaker Eris. Ceres in Capricorn is about prudent risk management of global climate, but the overwhelming corporate influence (Saturn-Pluto) gives Ceres the feeling of being besieged.
Consequently, one of the developing issues over the next three years is about our collective exasperation over global warming. How much suffering due to extreme weather conditions will we have to go through before the constructive Ceres vibe takes hold? For astrologers making predictions about the 2020 election cycle, don’t forget to take into account that the Saturn-Pluto conjunction is about conservative empowerment. Eris squaring this stellium tends to stir up chaos and discord around the coalescing corporatocracy and radical nationalism.
The Catalonia Independence Movement

Spain’s national horoscope (January 19, 1479; 7:00 am; Madrid*) represents the best metaphysical lens to analyze Catalonia’s independence movement. In 2006, Catalonian citizens approved the Statute of Autonomy which legally defined their relations with Spain. However, in 2010 the Constitutional Court of Spain re-wrote many provisions, which led to massive demonstrations. The clash between Catalonian independence and Spanish rule has only escalated since then.
It all seemed to come into sharp focus last week on Dancing with the Stars when she and her professional dance partner, Mark Ballas, performed a classic foxtrot to “When You Wish Upon a Star”. Transiting Jupiter’s recent entry in Scorpio is quite favorable for advancing Lindsey to the finals. By the end of this series, Jupiter will be right on her Venus, a sign of a bright future.
Lindsey was born with her Virgo Sun conjunct Pallas (September 21, 1986; Gilbert, AZ; time unknown), a combination that has allowed her to perfect her craft and strategize about how to promote her talents. The Sun also trines Mars in Capricorn, giving her the persistence, physical energy, and discipline to pursue her goals. A magnetic Venus-Pluto conjunction gives her stage presence, making her a joy to watch.

Yet with her Sun squaring a Lilith-Chiron conjunction, she was deeply wounded by her 2010 experience on America’s Got Talent. That was back in 2010, and although she made it to the quarter finals, the judges said that a flying violinist just wasn’t marketable. Her Sun has one more major aspect: an out-of-sign square to Neptune. This aspect reflects her interest in the arts as well as giving her a dream, a vision of what she could do.
Lindsey Stirling, the Dancing Violinist

When she was five, Lindsey Stirling had two big dreams: she wanted to be a violinist and a dancer. Eventually she fused these ambitions to become a YouTube sensation, a Billboard Music Award winner, and a world touring performance artist. Early in her career, professionals told her that showbiz has no place for a dancing violinist, but now she earns $400k/year doing just that.  
The Uranus-Neptune conjunction in the 10th house dominates this horoscope and, in Sagittarius, defines Spain as a new religious social order. Spain’s militant Catholicism is further shown by Mars in Pisces (the spiritual warrior) opposite authoritarian Saturn. Curiously, Spain’s Uranus-Neptune closely squares the Uranus-Neptune conjunction in Virgo that marked the birth of Islam in 622. Spain’s history is rooted in Christian armies overthrowing Muslem rule.

Spain’s powerful Uranus-Neptune conjunction has been under major activation over the last several decades: progressed Mars turned direct at 1º Sagittarius in 2003 – right on natal Uranus. Catalonia’s independence movement suddenly awakened, and when its will was denied, the people became increasingly rebellious. The Spanish police closed down voting stations during the most recent referendum on October 1, as transiting Mars conjoined natal Saturn and opposed natal Mars.
The row over independence will likely become increasingly heated over the next three years. This can be seen by looking at Spain’s progressed chart, which shows that Uranus has progressed to nearly 3º Sagittarius, and that progressed Mars will conjoin that position in 2020. Also, 2020 is when the epic Saturn-Pluto conjunction takes place in Capricorn, a powerful astro-event that fuels intense nationalism. If Catalonia succeeds, it will undoubtedly encourage many more independence movements within Europe.
