"The natal chart is like a seed and progressions are the unfolding in time of that into the plant it is to become. Transits, are like a daily weather report. In political astrology, these three factors have to be taken into account!"

re: Trump's ACG map - Note that Trump's Mars descendant on his AstroCartoGraphy chart runs right through Pyongyang, N. Korea. Does this suggest N. Korea's saber rattling might provoke some type of militant destabilization or weakness for Trump? 

A. It does indeed suggest an area where Trump might feel the urge to engage militarily or where military conflict might erupt.

re: Trump's Juno - This bit of research provides fabulous insight - or should I say confirmation of every thinking person's fears. Great work. The news itself, however, is disheartening!

re: the next war - After rereading your Sept 5th and Nov 2st columns, I got the impression that our next war maybe a war within. Perhaps sparked by the S. Dakota pipeline protests? Is there any indication with whom we would be going to war with in 2017? Foreign or Domestic? If foreign, do you foresee another 911 type terrorist attack?

re: Trump - You've hinted at a lot of stuff for some time. Political commentators have as well. Do you see the Trump presidency either coming to fruition or--if it does--lasting four years? If it does not last or does not actually occur at all is some actual Other determined by the other Oath of Office--whenever that might be?

A. In my article about the ceremonial Oath of Office horoscope, I show how Trump's inauguration chart is similar to JFK's and Nixon's because all three have Part of Fortune in hard aspect to Black Moon Lilith. And we know how both JFK's and Nixon's terms ended tragically before four years...

re: Sibley U.S.chart - I use the Sibley with good results. However, that is not to say that the Scorpio Rising chart isn't valid. Different perspectives may manifest in different charts. However, I'd like to point out the perspective of a friend whose spent 50 years in NGO work all over the world. 
     She knows little about astrology other than her own sign. However, she has often criticized the U.S. presence in port after port where she has been. "They always have to have the biggest ships. You always know when they are around. Why can't they make a softer 
  Yes, that's a display of power, although Scorpio says to me CIA, not giant battleships. More importantly to me, given that the Rising sign is the way you are perceived by others - this international display of overwhelming size speaks to me of Jupiter.

A. I wonder how many political enthusiasts can tell the difference between a Sagittarius Ascendant and a Sun-Jupiter conjunction trine the Ascendant? When 8º Scorpio is rising, the U.S. Sun-Jupiter conjunction in Cancer trines the Ascendant, bestowing all the grandiose qualities you see in a Sadge Ascendant. 
  Here's another perspective about a Scorpio Ascendant besides the secrecy thing: it resonates with the 8th house, and thus capitalism. And with four planets in the 8th house, the theme is much emphasized. 
     In addition to the Sun-Jupiter trine the Ascendant, it does so from the 9th house. What's the difference between the Sun in the 9th house and a Sagittarius Ascendant? I asked Jeff Jawer this once, and he couldn't say. 
  And with four planets in the 8th house, the U.S. has become a national umbrella for the powerful corporations that dominate the planet. Yes,they leave a huge "footprint" most everywhere, especially via innovative technology (Uranus), the military (Mars), the cultural celebrities (Venus), and the banking system (Jupiter).

re: KellyAnne Conway - If I understand your blog correctly, according to Trump's progressed moon entering his 12th house, we can expect the potential of his downfall, or at least serious setbacks, beginning in June. Can you speak about the same prospect for KellyAnne Conway, when she'll be out of the news?  

A. Unfortunately, we don't have a birth time for her, making her situation difficult to assess. However, she will likely be a significant and controversial news item for at least two more months as the transiting Uranus-Eris conjunction opposes her Mars.

re: inaugurations - You know how you've cited similarities in JFK's, Nixon's, and Trump's inauguration charts? Are pivotal events apparent in these charts? Can you say "a-ha see right there? THAT is end of Nixon" (or JFK [much more definitively...]) and therefore Trump? Have you looked at the key historical moments and how they impact--specifically--the inauguration charts?

A. That would entail a major research project, but I've given some of the indicators for these presidential transitions in my article on this subject. Go to 2017Inauguration, and scroll down to "Black Moon Lilith and the Part of Fortune".

re: climate change - Although conserves DO want a clean planet, the whole *climate change-global cooling-global warming* hysteria is whipped up BULLS*** by people like Al Gore and a bevy of others to make money. It was further hyped by *oPharoah and the DemonCraps* to push his cap & trade garbage in order to bring the US down so that he could 'level the playing field' with 3rd world countries, and penalize businesses financially, send our dollars to other countries to do more APOLOGIZING from the big bad USA, and ultimately completely destroy the fossil fuel industry. In reality this whole climate change crap is the liberals' RELIGION.

re: Yiannopolous - Just an idea for your column – does the chart for conservative pundit Milo Yiannopoulos show indications of his sudden, shocking implosion – losing his prestige, his CPAC headliner speech, his $250,000 book contract and his Breitbart job – all in just 96 hours? (Struck by Uranian lightning, I’d guess.) At any rate, this one looks like a textbook case of some kind of self-undoing or all-out collapse of, well, everything. 
  Yiannopoulos’ DOB: October 18, 1983, Greece (Wikipedia). I always find your column fascinating – not only for its insights, but for how clearly you explain your methodology.

A. Such dramatic falls from grace usually involve the Midheaven, either natal or progressed, and we need a birth time to know where his Midheaven is. Still, the rest of the chart tells the story. Transiting Uranus is widely opposite his Sun, but the three-degree orb doesn't account for the timing. Transiting Saturn is exactly conjunct his Neptune, suggesting the scandalous nature of the case. A natal Venus-Mars conjunction squaring over-confident Jupiter describes his zealous sexual activities. This configuration is being activated by progressed Mercury, the natural ruler of youth, and reflects the accusations of pedophilia. 
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.

Pluto and Kushner’s Grand Cross

In a widely circulated story, last Friday The Washington Post reported that Jared Kushner met with Russian officials to discuss setting up a backdoor communication channel using equipment at the Russian Embassy. The secret channel would be designed to elude U.S. surveillance systems and also involved Trump’s first national security adviser Michael Flynn. Kushner has become the FBI’s focus in its Russian investigation. 
Steph Curry was profiled here
and Kevin Durant here 
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.
As indicated last April 10, Kushner (January 10, 1981) came under recent scrutiny as transiting Uranus squared his Mercury. Although we don’t have a birth time for Kushner, a deeper look into his chart offers some projections about where this is heading. The main indicators are his progressed Sun, now at 27º Aquarius, and transiting Pluto, which vaulted him into a top White House role when it neared his Capricorn Sun.

Kushner’s Sun is part of a Cardinal Grand Cross: it squares Pluto in Libra, opposes Ceres in Cancer, and squares Pallas, the political asteroid, in bold Aries. This configuration reflects the political power he’s achieved through his family connections. The Cardinal Grand Cross is filled with internal tension that gets expressed through action. Transiting Pluto is retrograde now, but all next year will be activating this Grand Cross. 
Pluto can empower, but it can also bring tremendous complications, investigations, and destruction. Kushner, as one of the White House’s leading advisers, is entering into a battle for political survival. His progressed Sun is currently favorably activated by transiting Saturn and Uranus, which is highly protective. However, in 2018 his progressed Sun will square natal Uranus, marking an unusually disruptive and potentially career-ending phase.
However, Lebron James is now playing at an exceptionally elevated level. We might attribute this to the conditions around his progressed Mars at 28º Pisces, which conjoins progressed Venus, also at 28º Pisces. Both are currently being activated by transiting Chiron at 28º Pisces. Also his progressed Sun at 12º Aquarius is entering into an octile with progressed Mars, which adds leadership and strength. Game 1 of this superteam showdown begins on June 1 when transiting Mars in Gemini will be squaring James’ progressed Mars – a sign of intense physicality and rivalry.
James was born with his Mars in Pisces where it sextiles his Capricorn Sun and closely trines Pluto. This configuration enables the development of immense physical strength, and an all-or-nothing attitude that has consistently won games. Mars in Pisces is more selfless than other placements, and James often looks to pass before he shoots. His Mercury-Uranus conjunction helps him make split-second decisions about whether to take charge or be the playmaker.

The Warriors’ top players also have natal mars powerfully aspected. Shooting ace Steph Curry (March 14, 1988) has Mars in Capricorn conjoined with three outer planets and sextile Pluto, which makes him a magician on the court. Kevin Durant has Mars in Aries opposite his Libra Sun and square Jupiter, creating a dynamic T-square. Vegas odds-makers figure that either Curry or Durant will take the MVP award.
LeBron James in the NBA Finals (Again)

Michael Jordan has held first place on the NBA’s all-time playoffs scoring list with an incredible 5,987 points. That is, until last week when LeBron James passed him with a three-pointer in the third quarter of Game 5 against the Boston Celtics. James and his Cleveland Cavaliers enter the NBA finals this coming Thursday against the top-seeded superstar team, the Golden State Warriors. 
June’s Top Five Astro-Events

1. The Sun octiles Venus all month, with the aspect becoming exact on the 19th. This highly amorous combination is also favorable for all creative ventures, especially art and writing. Enjoy a widening circle of friends, and expect plenty of flirting beyond committed relationships. Best days for romantic outings and adventures are on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 6th to 10th, 18th, 19th, 23rd and 24th. 

2. Jupiter turns direct on the 9th while sextile Black Moon Lilith. Jupiter in Libra favors relationships, and Lilith adds a subtle, psychic rapport. Librans born on October 6 and after are especially favored to expand their horizons, find new opportunities, and break out of ruts. Wherever Libra falls in your natal horoscope is where you can find good fortune over the next four months. Follow your intuition for big payoffs.
3. The Full Moon in Sagittarius on the 9th is part of a six-planet mutable T-square, creating a fast-paced phase with many comings and goings -- especially in social networks. Travel with friends, family, and/or loved ones is favored, especially if you can avoid major traffic snarls and other busy-ness. Those who must work may space out easily, make mistakes, or get involved in fruitless projects. Take the time to be with people whose company you really enjoy. 
4. Transiting Uranus squares the U.S. Pluto on the 14th while the U.S. progressed Sun octiles natal Pluto on the 16th. This doubled Pluto theme (in effect all month) suggests historical power plays and/or investigations unfolding, most likely centered around Trump’s words and actions. The danger of a military confrontation runs high this month due to a concurrent war cycle. Seemingly minor events near any U.S. military presence could quickly escalate.

5. Black Moon Lilith squares Neptune on the 21st, and is in effect from the 12th through 28th. This mysterious, subtle influence may create a web of confusion for many, while others may suddenly become fascinated by what lies beyond consensus reality. For some, magic is in the air, while for others, delusional ideas and plans can become misleading in personal affairs. Psychological, cultural, and religious filters determine how you shape your aspirations.
