Planetary news this week and the Supreme Court

This week’s biggest news of course is the big Aries Full Moon that occurred on the 24th.  Not big as in Supermoon big, but big as in eight planets all linked together in a dance of high energy planetary juju.  The energy of Full Moons take about three days to culminate and then about three days to dissipate so we are still riding the waves of that explosion of energies.

In the US news, the disruption of the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court is a classic manifestation of the energies of this Aries Full Moon.  Mercury in Libra, desiring fairness, was tightly aligned to both the Sun and Moon, as was Chiron which brought up old wounds of the past to be addressed and hopefully resolved.  Uranus did indeed foster a disruption of the status quo which was looking like a seamless nomination and confirmation process.

This week we have a triple conjunction of the South Node (events of the past) to Mars (assertion and need) that includes the Black Moon Lilith, a force of primal feminism and the astrological mascot of the MeToo movement.  Combined with the lingering energies of the Aries Full Moon, this planetary dynamic will remain in effect at least until Friday.  Since allegations of sexual assault (connected with the Black Moon Lilith) are involved, I suspect the Supreme Court nomination process will not be resolved and more Kavanaugh accusers will come forward during this period.

Venus is in Scorpio now too, encouraging intense and passionate interactions which could overpower the tendency of Mercury in Libra towards polite conflict resolution.

It will be an interesting week!

    So looking at Brett K’s data, his Sun square Neptune seems to indicate the alcohol use, and that Uranus conjunct Pluto certainly lends itself to violence, aggression. What do you think Lynn?

      I’ll do a more complete profile in the next few days, but 1965 was a difficult year to be born in. Uranus/Pluto conjunction in the chart doesn’t necessarily lend itself to violence, but in 1965 Saturn and Chiron also opposed Uranus/Pluto which can create emotional problems. Interesting that the Black Moon Lilith conjoins his Venus. Obama has Sun square Neptune too, and that aspect can definitely show a tendency towards alcoholism or escapism of some kind but also a tendency to be misunderstood by others. And he has a very sensitive Cancerian Moon. It’s an interesting chart for sure.

    The strangest thing about this situation is how dog-on-postal worker Trump and Republicans are being about this *particular* Federalist Society pick. There are plenty of retrograde ideologues to be chosen but they want *this* swamp critter and not *those* other swamp critters.

    I hope then 2nd (and all other comers) accuser’s family are able to remain safe during this period.

      I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that Kavanaugh has said that Trump could pardon himself. 🙄

    So very interesting to me since my son was born July 13 that year and has had major struggles with alcohol, depression and extremely emotional relationships with women. He has become an amazing father of 4 young men and overcome many of his issues but knows it is still a struggle.

      I’m glad to hear Frances that he has worked so well to overcome the stress of these placements.

    I do wonder how the planetary influences would be interpreted from the opposition point of view…would the interpretation be the same? If one accepts that individuals are responsible for their own destiny, would that not be a valuable exercise?

      I believe that we ARE responsible for our own destiny, Soo. “The planets impel but do not compel.” We can’t control our natal planets or current planetary trends, but we can and need to make choices that will help us to grow and evolve rather than be stuck in victim hood.

    What happened to “innocent until proven guilty”?

    Women that were sexually assaulted remember the details. I can 100%, confirm this personally…………………

    Even when a person is drunk, fear sobers you up real fast.

      I’m sorry but I respectfully disagree, Deb. I don’t remember the details of my own rape. Trauma has a curious effect on the brain.

    Amazing how high a % of women that were raped in the baby boomer age.Most of us did not report it..go thru hours without bathing off that dirty energy..and then being scrutinized..and prolonging the trauma w police investigations probing and court.
    I remember every detail ..every word and sequence..but I do not remember the exact date or year..sorta before Thanksgiving break on a Weekday on the U C Berkeley campus. I think I was a junior in college..only sexually active 11 months..20 years old..but every other detail..crystal clear.
    IAnyone who passes an FBI lie detector a victim in high profile cases..should be given anonymity..but victims rights don’t seem to matter too much in the USA ANYMORE.

      Unfortunately I don’t think it’s limited to boomer women. It continues today.
