Yesterday President Trump’s press secretary Sean Spicer banned CNN and the New York Times from the daily press briefings. Trump has long had a contentious relationship with the mainstream media that he calls “fake news,” and his communications staff coined the term “alternative facts” to describe claims that do not fit the traditional definition of “true.”
Jupiter presides over the communication of shared ideas and is associated with journalism and the press as well as religion, theology and philosophy. Pluto is the planet of power, as well as destruction and regeneration. Capricorn’s realm is the material world, and with Pluto in the sign of Capricorn since 2008, it has been systematically destroying and regenerating the structures of society (Capricorn) including governments, corporations, schools, and even social institutions such as marriage and family. The consolidation of power in certain strata of individuals and certain corporations has also been evident.
Jupiter is now in a challenging aspect to Pluto, which is still in conflict with the rebellious force of Uranus and as I wrote the other day Mars is involved now too. Mars, a faster moving planet, tends to trigger larger cycles and the conflict between the current administration, which unabashedly seeks a consolidation of power in the Presidency (Pluto in Capricorn), and the press (Jupiter) has become inflamed (Mars). This government seeks autonomy and independence (Uranus in Aries) and shows a pronounced disdain for traditional government/press relations anyway, so the astrological climate is pushing everything to a fevered peak.
Mars will soon move away so I expect there to be a temporary resolution, but the larger planetary cycle will continue until the fall as Jupiter retrogrades away from the square to Pluto in the early summer but comes back for one more climax in late summer.
Do you think all h-e-double hockey sticks will break loose around the Solar eclipse of August 21? Even though the Jupiter/Pluto square will have moved off being exact, it’s still a powerful eclipse, and it’s right on Trump’s Ascendant. I also see that in late July-mid August, Saturn will be at 21 Sagittarius, right on Trump’s Moon and opposing his Sun. I don’t like the guy, but I kind of feel sorry for him. Saturn aspecting your luminaries is no fun, especially if you are an unevolved soul.
Still hoping for assassination I see.
Can’t tell you how many Marxist astrologers are sifting through trying to find it.
Trump has Pluto Leo 12th, that’s the dark angel that watches out for you.
Sorry, you won’t get your kill.
This is a bit of an extreme reaction Rebecca, I don’t hear anyone on this page saying anything about assassination. And believe me, if anyone did post a comment like that I would delete it. This page is for thoughtful astrological discussion, not people bashing.
For 15 – 20 years, I’ve been hearing our government tells the media what they report. Even Australians say, they get more information about American than Americans do. Maybe Area 51 is true.
Anyway, I continue to pray for world peace.
PS. I’ve started my annual decluttering too.
There is plenty of love for everyone.
