Today's news toppers with Mars in Sagittarius themes:
Number 1 story: Yesterday, Pres. Trump issued a stream of 11 pardons and sentence commutations that reek of Mars in Sagittarius, whether you consider them an assault on the court and justice system or simply cronyism (or, more gently, favoritism) - because his friends benefitted and, I think, it sent signals to others of his friends that help may be available for them, too. More Mars in Sagittarius is that these were all white collar criminals. There are so many Sagittarius (especially Mars in Sag) themes here, it is hard to disentangle it (but this should be useful when the transit is done for having a richer summary). Crimes like bribery, tax fraud, lying to officials, junk bond fraud, and trying to sell a U.S. Senate seat appointment. "Crimes by the elite" is not an overstatement.
Bloomberg will be in the Democratic debate tonight, for the first time, in advance of Nevada, with all sort of law enforcement, big money, and general elitism themes swirling in the hall.

(And Barr is privately discussing resigning as AG, while Trump publicly expressed total confidence in Barr - the usual signal that someone is about to be shown the door.) Over the weekend, a bipartisan list of more than 2,000 former DOJ officials called for Barr's resignation.
Then, though not in today's "Top 5" list (it will be on tomorrow's list, I'm sure), the immigration hammer is falling in Britain. The British government announced that, post-Brexit, it will start slamming the gate on many immigrations, especially targeting people who neither speak English nor have significant skills. On the new points system, 70% of EU citizens currently legally in Britain with jobs would not make the "significant skills" cut,
In second-string news, per Queen Elizabeth, Harry and Megan may not use the brand name "Sussex Royal" they developed because it has "royal" in it and they are no longer royal. A man was awarded over $150,000 in court because he was denied a license plate reading "IM GOD." And what reads to me more as a leftover of Mars in Scorpio, someone keeps dropping pillowcases full of snakes outside a British fire station.
