A Time of Reckoning – Week of March 22-28 2017

Saturn in Sagittarius symbolizes in a democracy, courts (Sagittarius) and the authority (Saturn) to investigate. With Saturn trine (120 deg aspect) to Donald Trump’s natal Mars at 26 deg Leo, conjunct to his ascendant and in the 12th house, we witness a sort of judicial prying into Trump’s motivations. He is called upon to reveal his moments of doubt and dark thoughts, a true time of reckoning.  Rather than a judgment at this point the questioning has begun. With Saturn moving more slowly now, turning retrograde on April 7th, this will not go away for a while. Saturn will exactly tine  Trump’s natal Mars in May, then retrace its path to turn direct again in late August. The second transit of the trine aspect takes place in mid November. With Saturn in Sag again trine Trump’s natal Mars, Pluto in Capricorn will be exactly be found in a square aspect to natal Jupiter retro in Libra. Certainly there will be continued judgment of his actions and this may implode some of his wealth, and cause much blustering, excuses and diversions on his part (Mercury and Moon oppose his natal SunUranus conj). Pluto in Trump’s natal 12th house indicates secret enemies and a lot of intrigue going on beneath the surface.

Summary of major aspects of the week:

Wednesday March 22nd – The transiting Moon conjuncts Pluto in Capricorn, and thus touches off the JupiterUranus opposition. This is a very upsetting time for many – especially it seems, for the US administration and Congress.  A balance of world power may be contested now, actions that are aggressive and difficult to contain threaten the world order and peace. The Moon’s exact square aspect (90 deg harsh) to Uranus in the chart image display could indicate an attempt by mediating entities to resolve the conflict. An effort to restore stability in the face of a decaying situation is indicated by the strong Capricorn planets, disposed of by Saturn in Sagittarius. This could be a court injunction as well as other actions from a legislative or court branch (Saturn in Sag) of government in order to maintain. A personal conflict may be resolved or stabilized by mediation as well, adhering to standard procedures and tradition.   The conflict is upset further by any radical actions that are outside the traditional roles. Pluto in square aspect to Jupiter could impact social contracts, eroding partnerships or legal contracts of all kinds.

Thursday March 23rd – The Moon in Aquarius today, transits the sextile aspect of the Sun and Venus retrograde in Aries, the two planets, which are doubly approaching a conjunction, as they become fused in effect. We see a relationship that is transformed by the PlutoJupiter square aspect (90 deg, harsh aspect) become infused with a more feminine energy, or other moderating force.  Both the Sun and Venus are disposed of by Mars, now transiting TaurusVenus is the dispositor of Jupiter in Libra. Thus, Venus is more exalted now even in retrograde phase of its orbit and in Aries, opposed to Libra, thus in its detriment. Venus, however, is an important element (actor) although weakened by sign and retrograde motion.  The Moon continues in Aquarius to form a square aspect to Mars in Taurus. Mars in Taurus is strong on stability (Fixed earth sign), although disposed of by Venus. Thus Venus and Mars are in mutual reception.  Venus desires stability.  Dane Rudhyar* refers to Venus as a consummating and concluding energy, the polar opposite of Mars – the initiator and an impulsive power. Here, I think, they are working together in mutual reception, one assists the other; while Mars looks to Venus (the inside influencer) for the instant scoop, thus giving power to Mars’ action.

Friday March 24th – As the Moon in Aquarius moves to a trine aspect with Jupiter retro in Libra, the drama unfolds. Jupiter now has the opposition to Mercury to contend with, as well as Uranus. The Moon in Aquarius is disposed of by Uranus. Both Mercury and Uranus are disposed of by Mars in Taurus. Mercury has obtained the super- power to speak out with the conjunction to Uranus. Words now have a greater impact, and the media (the disseminated electronic media), is a contrary (combats or balances) power against the declining force in Libra (Jupiter retro). It is a contest for the survival of the largest earthly democracy (Uranus and Moon are significators of the US- the January Inaugural and the July Declaration of Independence). Thus the Moon in a sextile aspect (60 deg working trine-easy aspect) to Mercury and Uranus manifests the qualities of the Union in force.

Saturday March 25th – The Moon in Pisces today, disseminates power, as the soli-lunar cycle resolves to a New Moon on the 27th of March (US times).  Disarray predominates at this phase, as the pressure to dissolve the inflated issues, the over-reaching emboldened by Jupiter in Libra, increases (Pluto doubly approaching the square aspect to Jupiter). The preposterous accusations and vague, unsubstantiated charges are slowly extinguished by force, rather than will. This then, is a cycle of unmasking of truth as Venus retro transits the Sun. The Moon transits Neptune, as an emotional release could clear the way for the new cycle to begin.

Sunday March 26th – The Moon in Pisces is sextile aspect to Mars and Ceres in Taurus today, as recognition of the role of media in the preservation of collective (Ceres) and personal (Taurus) values gains recognition. Mercury reaches the exact degree of conjunction with Uranus in Aries, as unusual or unexpected exposure, judgments and resolutions are made. There could be a role reversal here, and even the resignation of a power figure.  UranusMercury are sextile aspect to Trump’s natal Sun, an indication of his involvement in the decisions made today. UranusMercury in Aries are square aspect (90 deg harsh) to Trump’s natal Saturn in Cancer.

Monday March 27th – The New Moon is late in the evening today in US time zones (2:58 am GMT on the 28th).  With the stellium in Aries at the New Moon, Mars (the ruler of Aries) in Taurus consolidates the powerful initiatives that set a new order. Mars in Taurus adds value, charm and stability to the resurgent power order, to thread the legitimate figures in acceptable garb. Mars (forceful action) is now sextile aspect (helpful participation) to Neptune (dissolution), able to assist the dissemination and rearrangement of offices with compassion (Pisces).

Tuesday March 28th – New initiatives are in place to start the progressive actions, and Mercury trine (120 deg easy aspect) to Saturn indicates that roles are standard and traditional.  While faces may be replaced, the established order by law and statute remains set (Saturn in Sag). Applying new circumstances to a narrow interpretation is the role of the courts in the US.  Legal issues are now weighed (Jupiter in Libra) as power and authority are in conflict (Jupiter square to Pluto), legal indictments may be issued.
