Many blessings to you 

Thank you very much, Michael. This is exactly the specific information I needed.

I love the way you can put together the asteroids, planets, Eris, BML, etc. So much thorough detail. I am really appreciating this!! I am very grateful for your input on this matter.

You are an exceptional individual and you motivate me to collect myself, and gather the scattered scallops of my Gemini Moon.

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...
Comments, questions, suggestions? Let us know what you think. Email
Unless otherwise stated, all data is rated A or AA from AstroDataBank
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.
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.

Trump’s Twelfth House Pluto

Over the next week, Trump’s progressed Moon enters his 12th house, and he’s showing increasing signs of the isolation and self-defeating behavior generally associated with this passage. As Politico* headlined, “The president can’t stop talking about the Russian probe, and advisers say they’re worried he’s making the situation worse." In short, he’s become obsessed with the investigation, calling it a “witch hunt.”
*Read more about Trump’s obsessive, self-destructive behavior at Politico 
* See "Trump's Deep Ties to Russia" 
in Fortune magazine
This bi-wheel segment shows Trump's natal chart in the inner ring, with the outer ring showing his progressions for June 23, 2017. 
Who is Felix Sater? Google him and find out!
Planets in the 12th house are meant to serve the larger whole in some way and can direct the conscious ego into selfless acts, mysticism, and spiritual practices. However, most people in the modern world are imprinted with the need to accumulate as much wealth and power as possible, which leads the 12th house placements into psychological traps, or what astro-therapists refer to as “lessons”. 

Trump’s 12th house is tenanted by Pluto and, in its most positive expression, is the “saint”, one who feels the suffering of others and is guided by compassion. Trump is obviously playing out the more negative side, as shown by the obsessive, compulsive, and vengeful tweets as well as the comments of his closest aides. Chief strategist Steve Bannon said that Trump believes the FBI is out to get him.
Pluto in the 12th house may also refer to secret deals, hidden alliances, and organized crime -- like the Russian mafia that laundered money by investing in Trump Tower.* So far, no smoking gun has been found, and advisers tell Trump to be patient and eventually he’ll be cleared. His constant tweeting about the subject is indicative of the obsessive Pluto that just can’t let it go. As one presidential historian said, “He may be the first president in history who brings himself down because he just can’t help himself.”
So beginning next year, Bezos’ Sun will be simultaneously energized by a square from progressed Jupiter in pioneering Aries and the transformative conjunction from transiting Pluto. He’s in the process of completely shaking up the way people buy groceries. Ceres is the ruler of the food business, and Saturn-Pluto aspects govern the re-structuring process. The unfolding of this merger should take several years, and may be completed by 2020, when the epochal Saturn-Ceres-Pluto conjunction lands right on Bezos’ Sun.
Pluto, the natural ruler of “deep pockets” and the transformative process, is at the center of this buy-out. AMZN (May 15, 1997; 9:30 am; New York, NY) has 20º Cancer Rising, and later this year transiting Pluto will enter the 7th house of partners. Meanwhile, WFM (January 23, 1992; 9:30 am: New York, NY) has Pisces Rising, with its ruling planet, Neptune, being activated by transiting Pluto over the next several months.

Jeff Bezos (January 12, 1964) has his Sun at 21º Capricorn, which is a natural fit with AMZN’s chart. Bezos owns 17% of AMZN’s stock, and as transiting Pluto conjoins his Sun, he will make billions more. His current wealth stands at $84 billion – making him the second richest man in the world. The expansive nature of Bezos’ strategic vision can be seen in his progressed Jupiter, which is now at 21º Aries.
Amazon Buys Whole Foods

Last Friday Amazon (AMZN) announced plans to buy the organic food grocer Whole Foods (WFM) for $13.7 billion, setting off a huge ripple effect across the supermarket industry. Amazon has deep pockets and can lower costs to increase its customer base, and get a substantial piece of the $800-billion grocery business. The deal will transform Amazon’s e-commerce business into a brick-and-mortar giant.
Robert Mueller, Special Counsel

Following Comey’s dismissal, former FBI chief Robert Mueller was appointed to serve as Special Counsel to the U.S. Department of Justice. He was charged with investigating “any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump.” Last week, The Washington Post broke the story that Mueller was now investigating Trump for “obstruction of justice”.
Robert Mueller was born with his Leo Sun conjunct Vesta and Pluto (August 7, 1944; New York, NY; time unknown), a powerful combination that bestows an intense devotion to his job, as if it were a sacred cause. As the FBI director under Bush (43) and Obama, Mueller achieved a reputation for his fairness, competency, and for doing the right thing. The Sun sextile Uranus in Gemini adds intellectual independence, or in Washington-speak, bi-partisanship. 

Venus is the key player in current events. Mueller was appointed on May 17 when transiting Saturn at 26º Sagittarius and transiting Uranus at 26º Aries were both trine his Venus at 26º Leo. This Fire Grand trine accounts for the widespread acceptance of his appointment. Venus is associated with popularity, and his solid background serving the nation in a variety of capacities earned him near unanimous approval. 
Over the next several months, Mueller’s progressed Sun at 26º Libra remains in a highly favorable sextile to natal Venus. Around June 10* when transiting Uranus was exactly squaring Mueller’s Pallas-North Node, Trump suggested he was considering firing Mueller. The Nixonian threat was meant to force Mueller to issue a favorable report. This investigation is gathering steam, and we may expect some dramatic turn near the August 21 Solar Eclipse: it’s closely aligned with Mueller’s Venus, and on Trump’s Mars and Leo Ascendant.
