Dateline: December 19, 2019 Last night – Wednesday December 18 at 8:34pm EST and 8:52pm EST, respectively in Washington, D.C. – the U.S. House of Representatives passed Impeachments of President Donald J. Trump for Abuse of Power (the first time given) and Obstruction of Congress (the second time given). Note: Times above are for the moments when House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced the passage of the votes. A few minutes earlier – for each Impeachment – the required number of votes were achieved. Whether you use charts for a few minutes before or the times indicated above, the fundamental keynotes I present below will be the same.
The following is simply a preliminary list or guide for astrologers and astrological students of what I see as important. I have not made a thorough and exhaustive search of the two horoscopes, but what is presented should provide much food for thought. (The order in which I am making the list does not indicate rating one keynote or theme higher than another.)
The Sun is at the Galactic Center in late Sagittarius. Many astrologers consider the area around 27 degrees of Sagittarius as a very potent place in the zodiac – representing a much larger illuminating essence than our Sun, but also potentially focusing our attention on whatever “Black Holes” may be as there is an enormous one at this place which is the center of our galactic home in the universe – a home composed of billions of stars and planets.
The Moon is at 25 degrees of Virgo which has a symbol from Dane Rudhyar’s An Astrological Mandala reading as follows: “A flag at half-mast in front of a public building.” The original symbol – from Dr. Marc Edmund Jones’ book The Sabian Symbols – is simply “A flag at half-mist.” Most interesting, if not extraordinary, here is (a) this degree is at the Midheaven of the USA chart (July 4, 1776 at 4:47pm EST, Philadelphia, PA) we have used for decades in my pioneering astrology magazine Welcome to Planet Earth (1981-2000) and (b) with this historic passage of Impeachment of President Trump the transiting Moon, in Mundane Astrology, rules the public or mass consciousness.
Of course, a flag at half-mist symbolizes the death of someone or some kind of important physical/material reality. Astrologer and psychic Jeanne Dixon had a vision of a flag at half-mast flying over The White House in the summer of 1963 and tried to warn JFK of an impending disaster. On July 20, 1963 there was a Total Solar Eclipse exactly on President Kennedy’s natal Saturn in his tenth house of executive authority and leadership. (Saturn above occurred in the birth charts of Napoleon and Adolf Hitler, and then both JFK and Richard Nixon were born with those Saturn-type placements. It is considered by previous generations of astrologers as an indicator of a rise to power and then a subsequent fall.) On November 22, 1963, JFK was assassinated in Dallas, TX.
The transiting Mean North Node of the Moon – a strong celestial indictor of fate-destiny – is located at 8 degrees and 55 minutes of Cancer at both Impeachments. The Mean Nodes of the Moon always move retrograde and do so at an approximate rate of 3 minutes of arc per day. President Trump’s natal Mercury – ruling his Sun-North Node-Uranus triple conjunction in Gemini – is located at 8 degrees and 52 minutes of Cancer. Therefore, a very strong universal fate-destiny area in the zodiac was pointing directly at the president’s Mercury (communications; words; language; phone calls to foreign leaders). And today, December 19, as I am writing about last night’s events, the nation’s newspapers have headlines announcing Impeachment in bold letters as the transiting Mean North Node is exactly, to the minute of arc, on the president’s Mercury.
The Last Quarter Sun-Moon Phase was approaching and only 3 hours away when the votes were taken. I have explained dozens of times in my Daily Cosmic Kalendar (now in its 38th year and available by subscription on my www.greatbearenterprises.com website) that quarter moon cycles are vastly underrated in their potency in comparison to their more notable “cousins” – the New and Full Moon. However, at quarter moons – when the solar and lunar orbs are clashing with one another via a sharp, 90-degree angle – there are likely to be crises (whether minor or major) and there is a need to cut through obstacles in order to resolve difficult problems. Note: In my Podcast 23 (in relation to President Trump giving the president of Turkey a green light to go into NE Syria against our Kurdish allies), I spoke about the fact that President Trump – if he had a professional astrologer advising him – should avoid making major agreements or decisions during a quarter moon phase because he is born at a Full Moon/Total Lunar Eclipse and when the solar and lunar orbs are square one another, he is likely to make significant mistakes of judgment.
