THE DAILY IDIOSYNCRACY

Ask any astrologer to put a planet to the words radical, rebellious revolutionary and eccentric and you’ll get one answer – Uranus. So it’s no surprise that Donald Trump – born under a lunar eclipse with his Sun on Uranus with the Moon opposing - should elicit a similar description. Shock and surprise are delivered on a daily basis.

Uranus in a concentrated form is eccentricity personified. Trump’s offbeat style is witnessed via his whimsical and reactionary techno Twitter rants. Political pundits are already predicting he won’t last the distance. As the USA divides under this unconventional governance it pays to examine the July 4 1776 17.10 hours Philadelphia birth chart.

From February 2017, the Secondary Progressed Sun of the Sibly horoscope, representing the leader, is running square to the Ascendant. This Ascending point, where the ecliptic intercepts the horizon, depicts how the nation projects into the international community. It is an angle of image and association. Currently the leadership and the national image are running at cross-purposes.

As March begins, the SP Moon will join the Ascendant and also run square to the progressing Sun. This is putting the public (Moon) further at odds with the administration. The US Ascendant is also fielding a testing square from the transit of Neptune through Pisces, exact around the Aries Equinox in March and prevalent again from September onward.

Neptune’s smoke and mirrors will not dissipate until well into 2018. Casting the 2017 horoscopes of the Aries and Cancer Ingresses for the location of the White House places Neptune directly at the Ascendant for both. Hence the confusion, government leaks and mystery that surrounds Capitol Hill.

DREAM A LITTLE DREAM OF ME

A New York Times article recently referred to Trump’s advisor and publicity aide Kelley Anne Conway as ‘sleepwalking her way…through increasingly embarrassing interviews.” Dreamtime Neptune connects with Conway’s, “alternative reality” or the Donald’s fervent claims of “fake news”. It matters little that both perpetuate the same.

The President’s exaggeration of his inauguration numbers and fallacy that he enjoyed the biggest Electoral College win since Ronald Reagan is typical Neptune grandiose delusions. When challenged that Barack Obama and Bill Clinton posted a higher electoral count, Trump retorted that he was only referring to a Republican presidents. A detail he conveniently omitted.

That ‘get out of jail’ card failed when he was confronted with the fact that George Bush took the 1988 presidency with 426 Electoral College votes compared to his 304. As Trump’s disregard for facts and self-obsession is unprecedented, so is Neptune transiting across the Secondary Progressed USA Sun whilst squaring the US Ascendant. It’s a first.

THE REPEAT PATTERN

Neptune was last in departing square to the US Ascendant on January 4 1854, when Senator Stephen Douglas introduced the bill for the formation of Nebraska. It was the beginning of the Kansas-Nebraska Act that led the US down the path of civil war. It also led to the formation of the Republican Party that same year.

The war did not eventuate until 1861 when Neptune reached the very foundation of the US birth chart and dissolved national cohesion. This current period is equally important when it comes to disunity. The signs of similar political polarity are blindingly obvious.

History does not repeat absolutely, just as the solar system doesn’t fully duplicate its complex multiple patterns. Yet there are thematic similarities that would be foolish to overlook. Neptune will again reach the IC, or base of the USA chart in 2025. This ‘second coming’ will be part of a Saturn Neptune conjunction.

SYSTEMATIC CHANGE

The study of the Saturn/Neptune planetary cycle correlates with developments in the socialistic politics. At the 1846 conjunction – the year that Neptune was discovered - Karl Marx and Freidrich Engels met. That union led to the publication of the Communist Manifesto on February 21 1848, with the Sun conjunct Neptune. It was a year of sweeping revolutions throughout Europe.

At the heart of these uprisings, which abolished the French monarchy, were basic rights such as freedom of assembly, freedom of the press. European unrest was triggered via an oppressed majority living under the authoritarian rule of a privileged minority. These days we call them the ‘one-percenters’.

Since then, the Saturn Neptune conjunction has been at the forefront of two Russian Revolutions in the 20th century. As power became concentrated so their empire imploded. A similar class struggle is resurrected today, courtesy of widening economic inequality.

If the Sibly horoscope runs true to form the USA will experience a ‘fresh start’ SP New Moon in 2024 in empathetic Pisces and later that year the SP Midheaven will join revolutionary Uranus. It will mark a time of social upheaval directly related to the degree of societal imbalance. This is reinforced in 2025 as a political middle ground is cultivated.

HONEST JOHN?

What role does Donald Trump have in this? It may be easier to remove his name for anonymity and just call him Honest John. Now Honest is acutely aware that the big issue is economic inequality. He ran for President on it. But shucks - he’s a billionaire. Somehow he had to continually associate his opponent with the big end of town.

While it’s not a lie, it’s a tactic deflecting the fact that Honest John is the virtual embodiment of big end of town and always has been. So much so that he refuses to release his tax returns for fear they might torpedo his campaign. He claims the public are not interested. What they are really not interested in is the election. Over 90 million people won’t be voting in 2016.

Honest John wears a cap, similar to the political activists Michael Moore and Bernie Sanders. It’s an effective marketing ploy associating him with the worker. The cap works a treat. Somehow fellow cap wearers fail to hear that he is against raising the minimum wage and considers American workers overpaid. And that he plans further tax cuts for the rich.

He’s running for the most important political post in the world but Honest John hasn’t served a day in public office. He’ll use this inexperience to his advantage. He’ll call the whole system corrupt – including his Republican associates. It’s what most people believe anyway. He will disassociate himself from the politicians that he’s cultivated most of his life, then get the same people to nominate him.

After his victory John will pay his opponent, that one he vowed to jail, effusive praise for her contribution to America society. He will appoint the very people he used to denigrate his opponent – Goldman Sachs execs – to his highest financial positions. He will rail against regulations introduced after the 2008 Wall St scandals, claiming they’re hamstringing fiscal growth.

He will challenge environmental policy in the name of profit. Honest John swears to uphold the constitution and immediately introduces legislation that defies it. When his attorney general defends the law he dismisses her. Reverts to the oldest political line in the book. Says he inherited a mess.

Points to Brexit as evidence of the political tide turning. One problem here. Brexit was decided by majority vote – Honest John lost the majority by three million. And as for change, he only received 10,000 more votes than mainstream Republican Mitt Romney did in 2012. I’m sure you get the picture by now. This is all fantastic Neptune stuff.

THE TRUTH

It'll probably get revolution rolling. But not the one he expects. There is another side to Neptune. It relates to avoidance and complacence. 42% of the American electorate was unaccounted for in 2016. That’s something that changes remarkably when real revolutionary times escalate. Like a sleeping giant waiting to awake from a comatose Neptunian state.

If the election is to be correctly analyzed, via the people who voted for neither Clinton nor Trump, the disassociated would have won 490 Electoral College votes as against 32 for Clinton and 16 for Trump. Disinterest won the 2016 election by an incredible margin. When that changes, via believable candidates, real change will follow.

Next week's column examines the upcoming February 26 Solar Eclipse. It's chart that links in with both the Reichstag Fire and the first World Trade Centre bombing and Islamic State. And that's only for starters. It's a must read. Meantime here's the US election below and the states where the non voters outnumbered the candidate's support. Overwhelmingly so.

Gemini or Gemini Rising: Your plans may be big, but talk is cheap. Even allowing for a Gemini love of conversation. If you're looking at some kind of status change now, it's not without reason.

Leo or Leo Rising: Like your Cancer cousins a certain sacrifice is necessary for progress. That may involve facing a fear and moving through it - for you or a partner.

It differs according to your age and individual situation. But it's decisions around this which are important considerations now for both.

Virgo or Virgo Rising: When the Sun opposes your sign, as it does from Monday, you're reminded how different you are from others. It's a necessary coming together, pulling apart, tug of war feel. Something incites you to step into another's shoes, whether or not they're a comfortable fit. Objectivity is the point of it all and self growth the outcome. Some times other people have the answers and they, or their stories, are due to appear. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin.

Libra or Libra Rising: When equal weights are placed either side of the scales, it only takes a feather to make a change. It's like the adage that every great journey starts with a single step.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: Anything great started with imagination. It's the most powerful creative force. We all have it in abundance - the optimist and the pessimist alike.

Something that a closed door in the past now awaits your abracadabra. Think with your heart on this one. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: This week begins with the Moon in your sign suggesting that if you throw the dice early it's fruitful combination with Venus and Mars can see you coming up trumps.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: There's been a lot of focus on 'fake news' of late and you're kind of getting used to it all. Some things are to be believed and other plans are simply shooting for the stars, without a parachute. Some cool Capricorn objectivity is called for now, even if you're advising others. Look at it as a matter of covering all bases. Plan B is there for a reason. Even Santa puts an escape clause in the chimney. Look at your own future prospects astrologically for the years ahead, organize a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin Click here for details. Top

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: Something special happens this week. It involves Mercury, the messenger, meandering through your sign and productively trining bountiful Jupiter.

Great for studies, media work and/or purchases. To look at your own future prospects astrologically for 2017 -2017 , organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed. Click here for details. Top

So it would be plain avoidance now to be a bit player in somebody else's drama, wouldn't it?
