How about a little drama? Now that the North Node has gone into LEO, the plot is thickening — with one surprising twist after another! Whether we like it or not, we are constantly bombarded by the news reports which are hard to ignore. And our curiosity is continually piqued by each new installment of this political reality show (which is actually REAL). We are fascinated by what’s going to happen next. OMG! Guess what happened today?!!
Trump will dominate the spotlight even more than usual this month because he’s a GEMINI (and the Sun is now in GEMINI). With his natal Moon in the opposite sign SAGITTARIUS, he was born on a Full Moon & Lunar Eclipse. And his over-the-top antics certainly do eclipse everything else that’s going on!
Now our national political reality show has become an international reality show. Last week, the scenario moved from the local stage to the world stage. SAGITTARIUS is associated with foreign affairs and religion, so Trump is playing out his chart in full color. It seems quite significant that Muslim, Jewish and Catholic leaders were included in his first foray into foreign territory.
Trump may have left them happy in the Mideast, but the Europeans were left cold. His criticism of their financial role in NATO, along with his refusal to commit to standing by our long-time allies, has shaken the European community to its core. (Combative Mars − currently in GEMINI − was exactly on Trump’s natal Sun during his diatribe against NATO). And it is now being reported that he plans to pull the US out of the Paris climate agreement. When will this craziness end??
On the day Trump fired James Comey (May 9), the North Node began its new 18-month transit through dramatic LEO, and the shocking Mercury/Uranus conjunction in ARIES fired up a raging controversy. Most interesting, in Trump’s own horoscope on this same day , his progressed Moon entered his 12th house (a cycle sometimes known as the “sh*t hitting the fan”).
And on May 10 (which was the Full Moon in TAURUS SCORPIO), his White House visit (and sharing of classified information) with the Russians got everybody howling. It reminds me of the MOON card in the tarot deck! To add to the drama, on this day, his progressed Moon began a new 2-year cycle in LEO. Unfortunately for him, he’s going to get more attention than he wants, and light will become shed in areas that he’d much prefer remain dark. Secrets will become uncovered! His obsessive need for public attention and adulation (reflected by his LEO ascendant and Sun in the 10th house) could ultimately lead to his downfall.
As I write this, it turns out that Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, is now under investigation for allegedly attempting to establish a secret channel with Moscow back in December ’16. This has only added to the intrigue surrounding the Trump administration’s relationship with Russia. Next week, James Comey will be testifying in the senate investigation, which is bound to stir up even more fireworks. Keep an eye on the upcoming Full Moon in GEMINI & SAGITTARIUS as it comes to a head on June 9 — it will bring increased clarity to this murky situation. Not surprisingly, this scenario does get loonier all the time!
