A riveting full Moon eclipse on the 10th of January, provides an opportunity to resolve issues that erupted over the past week. The stellium of planets in Capricorn opposes the Moon in Cancer. Mercury, the envoy messenger, transits Ceres, Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, bringing hope of the carrot and the whip. Trump seems more likely, like a gambler, to increase threats. The stellium opposes DJT’s natal Mercury and Saturn in Cancer, as he tries to talk his way out of the difficulties. His show of force, building up US presence in the ME, challenges the sovereignty and stability of the of the governing powers and the populations he is sworn to protect. At the full Moon, also an eclipse, there could be an avenue presented for resolution of the conflict. At a critical time for his presidency at home, his intended moves should assume responsibility. As the Moon transits his natal Saturn just hours after the eclipse on the 10th, he could be forced to modify his hard stance.
