A Few Predictions that do not require astrology (2017 et seq, Presidential Politics)

[Originally posted 5:31 AM CST November 8, 2016; minor edits on Feb 10th 2017]

3  Election Predictions

No Astrology Needed

Before we elect a new President here in the United States, facing the choice between Donald Trump (and his family, hereafter “Trump” as is popular) and Hillary Clinton (who is a package with Bill Clinton, the impeached former President, and their daughter), I would like to make a few predictions without astrology (and a bit of one with astrology).

  1.  Whoever is elected will face impeachment, though different reasons apply.If Hillary is elected, the same kind of conduct that has characterized the Clintons in the White House before (email scandals, Bill’s sexual predation, etc.) will continue and impeachment proceedings will be launched.If Donald is elected, his various comments (such as the “locker room talk”) and past actions (such as the Trump Casino boondoggle) will form the basis of investigations and, again, impeachment proceedings will begin.Whether these impeachment proceedings will happen in 2017 or 2019 requires further analysis.
  2. Obama inherited a financial mess from George Bush consequent to the unnecessary war in Iraq (probably to help make the cronies of the Bush family wealthy but excused by the events of 9/11, sort of, as we went hunting for “weapons of mass destruction”), and Obama’s continued incompetence has NOT healed the economy despite all the rhetoric he is pushing.A particularly bad “crash” is facing us after a dishwater tepid “recovery” and whoever comes into office will be facing that financial crisis.  But, to some degree, a bit of a coverup will be done to give Obama a chance to save face.
  3. In order to cure #2, the incumbent will have little choice but to pursue a “hot” war (tanks and soldiers and battlefields, and as opposed to a “cold” war using spies and diplomacy).This will probably be a middle east war, will probably involve ISIS or some similar entity, and will probably have a precipitating event similar to 9/11 (and “intelligence failures” will be covered up again, just like what happened years ago with Pearl Harbor).

I think any sufficiently astute observer of 20th Century history, and early 21st Century history, can easily piece together what I am saying here.

A Wee Bit of Astrology Needed

[If you have not read our August 2015 analysis of the election, you might want to do so.]

Now the part that requires a bit more analysis, and I tend to rely on astrology here:

If Trump is elected, we will move into a “hot war.”  But if the Clintons go back in (and, as of this writing, the indicators are that the Clinton branch of the Bush-Clinton machinery is likely to be back in the White House), then we will go into a “*HOT* war.”  This war might be the first one to involve nukes since World War II.

(Might it be “Armageddon”?  Let’s hope not!)

Mars and Pluto

Why?  What astrology supports a “hot war” regardless of which one is elected?  The answer is that *BOTH* of them have Mars (War) in Leo (Presidents and Kings) AND Pluto (Annihilation, Nukes, Spies, Assassinations) in Leo (Presidents and Kings).

However, Hillary has these CONJUNCT (highly amplified and focused) whereas Donald merely has them in the same sector (bad enough!).  This deserves a separate, detailed article later, but election day is at hand (and the time is not  available to do this kind of detailed analysis).

In either case, the entry of Mars into Aquarius (opposing, ultimately, both the Mars and Pluto of BOTH candidates) marks the coming of the event that precipitates the war.

Strange Bedfellows

One more prediction, part astrology (based on Mars/Pluto) and part not: do not be surprised at all for the one who is NOT the incumbent to become a supporter of the one who IS the incumbent, particularly in this matter of the “hot war.”  Both have Mars/Pluto in Leo, and politics does make strange bedfellows.

Post Script:  (a rant)

Regarding “Armageddon”: I am not a Bible-thumper, but the Christian Bible does have some valid points from a metaphysical perspective, or at least that is my opinion.  As is true for many of us in “The South” (of the United States), I am from a Christian heritage and respect those teachings as much as I can but I cannot ignore certain scientific challenges (example: the idea of a “literal” virgin birth) and historical ideas that have long been concealed but is now coming to light.

Zeitgeist

What might those historical ideas be?  I think that Zeitgeist the Movie has some valid points.   (I am referring to the roughly the first thirty minutes of the movie, specifically but NOT necessarily the later parts of the movie.  (As always, you will have to decide for yourself.))  Let’s face it, astrology is woven all through the original Christian mythos, and 2,000 years of attempting to purge it has simply failed, as censorship inevitably does.

Persecution of Prometheus

What really irritates me the most about the Christian ideology is the conversion of Prometheus, a hero in the Greek mythology who brought the gift of fire (and light and enlightenment and the source of the “Olympic Torch”) to the humans from the Olympian gods into the “fallen angel” named “Lucifer” and an obvious villain in the Christian story.

Frankly, that stinks!  SHAME on whoever did that!  Prometheus is the ancient emblem of our ability to innovate and create art and technology.  But I suppose it is precedent for our collective tendency to sometimes villify people (or ideals) who are truly heroes!

Whoever did that nasty deed was the enemy of independent people who choose to think for themselves, outside the guidelines of the thought police.

Temptation is the Philosopher’s Stone

Do you like Lucifer the Television Show?  I do!  He makes great points: his power stems, almost completely, from his ability to tempt.  Were it not for temptation, he would have no power.  But, then again, neither would any of the advertising on lamestream media.

But, let us be clear: temptation is the Philosopher’s Stone.  In the crucible of the misery that results from our own bad choices, temptation leads us down a road that transforms us either by our death (literally! as in from alcohol or drug overdoses) or that metaphorically “kills” the old self leaving someone new, as was true with Saul / Paul.

Being a “message bearer” is a dangerous job.  The Titans rejected Prometheus after he liberated Zeus (Jupiter, and higher order thought) from Kronos (Saturn, and the bonds and the exoskeleton of “how we have always done things”).  He was welcomed by Zeus into Olympus and did well there until he gave fire (light, reasoning, insight) to the humans.  Then he was kicked out of Olympus.

But, we humans had to commit the same error as the Gods.  As part of the price of learning to reason and have insight, Prometheus exposed the power of Temptation to humans, so we showed our collective gratitude by renaming Prometheus into Lucifer and sending him to Hell (also known as “casting him into the darkness”).

If Prometheus could speak directly to the typical “Christians” and the Christian Power Structure, he would probably say this: “O why dost though persecute me so?”

I bet they might answer thus: because it is just too tempting.

2012 Revisited: A Messy and Close Election

Edit: [late on 2016 November 08, near 6 PM CST]  “We also recommend that you read this analysis by Katie Turner over at Know Your Vibes Astrology.  It is a good analysis.  However, I would offer that I think, long term, that Hillary is by far the more dangerous of the two.  (It has to do with this issue of a “hot war” I wrote about earlier.  Only time will tell.  At an intuitive level, without any deep analysis, I tend to agree also with the others that, whoever goes in, we are almost certainly looking at a one term president, similar to the Jimmy Carter situation of the late 1970’s.)

Here is our analysis of the 2012 election.  It was also extremely close and extremely messy and difficult to predict.  But, we wrote these words:  “But, Obama has the Moon conjunct Mercury, a bit more favorable as far as aspects go.  We think he will win.”  This time we think Hillary will win.  But, again, it will be both close and messy.  And, we expect impeachment proceedings to be at least attempted if not completed.”

Neptune Conjunct South Node: Will They Live Long Enough to be Impeached?

Edit #2 November 8th [about 6:35 CST]:  Tara Greene has posted “You’ve never seen this, Neptune conjunct Pisces South Node.” So, what was going on in 1849?  This was.  More specifically, United States President Zachary Taylor took office on March 4, 1849.  “Taylor’s status as a national hero as a result of his victories in the Mexican-American War won him election to the White House despite his vague political beliefs.”  (Almost sounds like Donald Trump a bit, doesn’t it?)

But, more disturbing, is his death not even two years into the term: “Taylor died suddenly of a stomach-related illness in July 1850, so had little impact on the sectional divide that led to civil war a decade later.”  Sworn in in March of 1849 (Pisces) and dead by July of 1850 (Cancer).

Therefore, we modify our #1 impeachment prediction based on the astrological consideration of Neptune conjunct South Node: the impeachment proceedings will be attempted (or completed) given that the incumbent lives long enough for this to occur.  (And, based on what happened to the POTUS the LAST time we had the Neptune / South Node aspect, we are concerned regarding some kind of “repeat” could occur.  Maybe the big question is actually who will be Vice President?)

Bill Clinton Solar Return 2015

Here is the SR Chart for former President Bill Clinton, filtered for Thor’s Hammer patterns (which seem prevalent in his chart).  We suspect that this will be a year of conflict for him, and, if not conflict, then he will be very “busy.”  (Not surprising given that his wife has announced a Presidential bid.)

Here is the chart:

Bill Clinton 2015 SR (Thor's Hammers)

This chart incorporates an existing T-Square that was part of a Grand Cross on the previous day.  In addition to a powerful Sun/Saturn square, we note that Vesta issues (traditions, and sometimes kinky sex) are particularly important in this set of patterns in this particular Solar Return.  We note, also, a powerful Focused Yod occurs on this date. and others have noted the Venus/Uranus Trine on this day.
