Reader comment on item: What's Trump's Policy on Visas for Muslims?

Submitted by Michael S (United States), Aug 17, 2016 at 23:24

I told you I wasn't an astrologer. Here is the actual configuration for 20 Jan. 2021 (Inauguration Day, 4½ years from now):

Sun 0° Aquarius
Jupiter 7° Aquarius
Saturn 3° Aquarius

Mars 6° Taurus
Uranus 6° Taurus

In other words, Sun, JUPITER (not Uranus, as I said before) and Saturn are all conjoined (next to each other, as seen from the earth); Mars is, as I said, squared (90° away from) the three; and Uranus is conjoined Mars and squared the others.

The astrological significance is this: planets CONJOINED to one another are signs of beginnings, as when the sun and moon are conjoined every new moon. That is why new moons are special days in Judaism, and all their new years begin on new moons. Planets SQUARED to one another produce a "working" kind of friction. When a "malefactor" is squared another planed, this is generally called a "bad aspect".

Mars, Saturn and Uranus are all considered malefactors. Mars is associated with aggressive behavior, such as war; Saturn is associated with government restrictions, and Aquarius is associated with (sometimes radical) reforms. The three of them all aspecting one another would be seen as a sign of a coup or revolution, or such behavior.

Jupiter is seen as a benefactor; and its conjuction with the sun is looked upon as "good". I had overlooked Jupiter in my previous posting. It represents wisdom; but since it is associated with the three malefactors, that "wisdom" might be sinister.

As I said, I'm not astrologer; I just dabbled in this stuff because a woman I knew was into it. I stick to looking for rarely occurring aspects, such as those between the outer planets; and the above aspect of Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus is rare; this is the only time it will happen in our lifetimes. The last major triple aspect of outer planets happened during the fall of the Berlin Wall:

Solar eclipses, such as those I mentioned, are fairly frequent; but those two are the only ones in a long, long while that will be seen from North America and Europe-Middle East, respectively. Between them, of course, they encompass NATO and Israel, which some believe have end-times significance.

I appreciate, that many readers are not interested in astrology. As long as I mentioned it, though, I ought to be as precise and clear as I can be. The bottom line, is that if a feared, "fascist"-like dictator is to appear, it won't be in 2017; so this should allay any fears of this nature concerning Donald Trump.

One OUGHT to be concerned, though, about a confused, lying person like Hillary Clinton coming into power. Between her and Obama (and his predecessors, actually), stupid leadership like this resembles the situation before the rise of the likes of Hitler, Napoleon and Nero. In the case of this last one, I take exception, in that Nero's uncle Claudius, while perceived as an idiot, was actually a fairly effective leader. It was not enough, though to undo the madness of his predecessor, Caligula.

As Jack Horkheimer used to say, "Keep looking up" :-)
