From the Desk of Leslie Marlar, Feb. ’16
For those of you who are local, S.T.A.R. Guild Astrology study group meets on the 23rd of February. We will look at the charts of some very special people, like Mother Teresa and Gandhi, in contrast to the dictators that we looked at in Nov. If all works, we will be using the fancy AV equipment in the library to present our charts.
At our January meeting we looked at the top 4 candidates for president. Trump was born under a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse, with the Moon sextile and the Sun conjunct Uranus conjunct north node trine Jupiter. He has Mars and Regulus near his Ascendant. He is lucky, successful, energetic, and brash.
Hillary has a group of planets in Leo square a group of planets in Scorpio. Strong signs are in conflict and her Moon in Pisces is square Uranus. We have 2 different times for her. In one, the Moon is trine Jupiter and at the top of the chart bringing wide fame.
Bernie has the Moon with Mars in Aries oppose Venus, Mercury trine Saturn and Uranus, and a Virgo Sun square Jupiter. The Sun square Jupiter is about trying to manage wealth. Energy and intelligence are also displayed in him.
Ted Cruz has the Moon with Uranus in Libra square Mercury in Capricorn, which is trine Saturn in Taurus. Venus, Mars, and Jupiter oppose Saturn and sextile Mercury. His Sun squares Pluto. Mercury in tradition loving Capricorn is central in his chart.
Of the candidates, Trump has the best Sun. The Sun is the manager and executive. But Hilary has the transiting Moon in her Moon sign on election night, and in the 10th house in one of her charts, which is telling. All of these candidates are affected by eclipses, which bring life altering events, but Hilary has them affecting her Moon.
Check my S.T.A.R. Guild Report to see our discussion of this and the charts.
This past month, China’s stock market and ours were down. Mars is in the financial sign, Scorpio.
The Mississippi was flooding, this is troublesome Mars in a water sign. Unfortunately, Mars will be in Scorpio in Jan, Feb, June, and July.
The Uranus Pluto square stimulated by faster moving bodies took David Bowie who has the Sun and Mars in Capricorn square Neptune in Libra.
Sanctions were lifted against Iran and our prisoners were returned. This happened under a First Quarter Aries Moon conjunct surprising Uranus.
We found out that the water in Flint, Mi. is and has been terrible. Troublesome Mars is in water sign, Scorpio and Saturn was there when this first started.
Sarah Palin endorsed Trump when the Moon was in his Sun sign. The woman came to the man.
The big snow storm in the Northeast happened under a full Moon in Leo square Mars.
February may be a bit better with Mercury direct and Planets past the Uranus Pluto square after early month. A New Moon in Aquarius gives us a new start in our social lives and intellectual lives. But its square of Mars bodes badly for weather. Full Moon in Virgo on the 22nd and 23rd contrasts realistic and idealistic approaches.
I will be talking about the Astrology of 2016 at the Yoga Shakti Mission on Sunday, Feb. 7th at 9 am.
