With Mercury Retrograde mercifully, nearly over (goes direct on Thursday), I wonder if the Trumpulum, aka the Trump pendulum, will swing back again in the other direction? Will the Neocons get the next maddening swing? I seriously doubt it as President Kushner and first lady Yael now seem to be thoroughly in control in the White House, with Kushner’s TN in Leo feasting off of Trump’s Pluto in Leo, behind the scenes in the 12th House.
What we do know is that Mars is now in Gemini at 7 degrees and it is going to conjunct Trump’s Uranus at 17 degrees in sixteen days and while it may not induce another series of tremor-like reversals, it could produce enough instability inside of Trump’s chart to make people feel even more edgy. Another aspect of Mars in Gemini is the Mars return of one H.R. McMaster, the National Security Advisor. This will happen by Saturday when Mars is at 10 degrees.
The Mars return is potent and instills a sense of confidence, surety and the expression of personal power. In Gemini, Mars is restless and at times unconsciously contrarian. Ironically, McMaster’s TN is at 8 degrees Leo, which also places it on Trump’s Pluto in Leo at 10 degrees in the 12th House. McMaster and the aforementioned Kushner are both jacked into the hidden power. One has to wonder if the two will compete or join forces in an occulted alliance. In addition to the Mars/Uranus conjunction, McMaster’s Uranus in Leo at 28 degrees rests right on Trump’s ASC and is conjunct his Mars. The two share a powerful, albeit erratic connection with power, will, chaos and the energy of disruptive change.
When Mercury moves forward in Aries, the god of war, will the grand magicians use this power to move forward aggressively? Will the green light be replaced by Martian red? In the days to come we’ll see if it’s going be more talk (Gemini) or action (Mars).
May Day has been historically linked with union, usually of the masculine/feminine variety, as the communal phallus is erected and danced around during the fires of Beltane, in pagan rites of fertility and seed. It was also used to display the latest is Soviet armature, their own version of the potent phallic parade. On today’s “Fifteen Minutes of Flame” I break down the historical events of May Day, from the birth of the Illuminati in Ingolstadt, Bavaria, to the sinking of the Lusitania, to the first Polio vaccination. It’s all here on 5/1 and today’s show.
