USA Mundane Forecast
for the four weeks beginning AUGUST 13, 2019

If you are unfamiliar with the methods and interpretations of Sidereal mundane astrology, please see my free book Sidereal Mundane Astrology. (A link to the current edition can be found near the top of the Publications sub-forum.) For standard interpretations, see Chapter 8 of the current (16th) Edition.

LONG-TERM (Solar Ingress) PATTERNS
For the United States, the 12 months beginning January 15, 2019 are dominated by Uranus on IC square Sun on Eastpoint (0°08' wide in RA). Sun-Uranus signals startling events such as surprise attacks, sudden changes in leadership, and technology breakthroughs.

URANUS forecasts explosions (literal or metaphorical), sudden rupture or eruption, shock, surprise, overflowing normal bounds, and revelations. Uranian events often define the character of an era. SUN concentrates attention on the government (especially the head of state) with heightened perception of government’s presence in people’s lives. Sun's aspects to Uranus and Pluto infer rebellion against present leadership and rejection of prevailing political views. Sun-Pluto brings disrespect for the law or those that create or enforce it (which sometimes means removing those in power).

MERCURY CONJOINS SATURN in the foreground. Expect restrictions, delays, failures, or calamity in transportation and communication. Information flow is interrupted or rationed. Data integrity is doubted: cybersecurity remains a higher priority than cyber-expansion. Economic narrowing and backtracking on recovery interrupt commerce. More newspapers and retail close their doors.

Reinforcing the message of economic crisis, MARS square JUPITER exists only mundanely: It is geographically distinctive to Washington. This could be as slight as further government shutdowns or as ravaging as a market crash, but probably will be something between. Resources are squandered, stretched past capacity. Belief-driven aggression accelerates. Bigots have louder voices. In nature, as in human affairs, expect stormy weather.

MERCURY CONJUNCT PLUTO anticipates collisions of information, communication, and ideas. Perhaps opponents in Congress will engage passionately again, unlike the tepid, rigid polarization of recent years. Investigations drill deeply into untapped data to disclose information that reframes how people think. Cyber attacks include remote undermining of critical communication and cyber-control networks.

With Saturn in Sagittarius all year, immigration, aviation, elitism, hierarchical economic separation, and nationalism (anti-internationalism) dominate the public discussion.

Arisolar (Apr 15)
As the July 17 Cansolar is dormant, the Arisolar remains the Quarter chart until mid-October. It shows great severity. Saturn rises within 0°02' in Washington. Pluto is 2°34' below Ascendant, with Saturn conjunct Pluto. Together, Saturn and Pluto PVP square Moon, with Moon-Saturn partile.

With SATURN RISING so closely, expect loss and deprivation, whether of property or human life. The stock market will falter and the economy narrow. Banks are imperiled. Damage from natural disasters increases. Foremost with this Moon-Saturn-Pluto trio, human cruelty rises, hearts harden, and sadness spreads like a dark cloud. Saturn-Pluto brings dramatic hardships with a sense of irrevocable loss or separation. Moon-Saturn means sacrifice, loss, and sadness. Moon-Pluto emphasizes separation, alienation, and departures. The emotional impact of genocide matches these aspects, though of course other physical outcomes are possible.

For the United States, the first consequence of the new Cansolar is that the 2018 Cansolar expires. It concentrated passionate waves of populism with an elevation of thriving unreason fueling herd-mind arousal, disorientation, and deception while undermining trust and confidence. These should abate now. New threats are sharper, more reality based: Cansolar Moon squares Uranus (0°19') for the world and Moon opposes Mars in mundo for Washington.

MEDIUM-TERM PATTERNS (The Bridge)
URANUS squares Cansolar and CanQ Moon (one or both of them at the same time) for the entire month. This signifies winds of change. Conditions rapidly shift. Something new is breaking the horizon. Though Uranus periods can include harsh, threatening disruption, we are slated to get the better side of Uranus this summer. Like other indications, this transit suggests that new technology startles us, changing more or less everything. (It's probably more than just the widespread dissemination of 5G.)

One indication that these are winds of positive change lies in an expiring progression. Last month's Cansolar has Venus opposite Saturn. On August 30 (about the time the Canlunar begins), that aspect leaves its 1° orb for the rest of the year. Great causes of sadness are lifted, matters that have driven families and communities apart end, and the figurative party that was over just might get going again. In brief, we're done with ugliness for a while.

Within all this, transiting Mars squares Cansolar Ascendant for a week, August 31 to September 6. This MARS-URANUS zone has the greatest potential explosive violence or sudden attacks. Drive carefully this Labor Day.

SHORT-TERM (Lunar Ingress) PATTERNS
Caplunar (Aug 13)
The Caplunar covers August 13 to September 9, especially the first two weeks, August 13-27. Mars is 0°17' from IC. Jupiter and an afflicted Neptune are more widely angular. Moon makes her last conjunction with Pluto for a while. The month is heated and harsh with aggressive confrontation, yet with flamboyance, a bit of drama in the delivery, and more theater than seems safe in a time of threat.

Grandstanding aside, Mars foreground signals any number of hurtful events from fires to hurricanes to accidents. Violence can't be ruled out, though it seems harder to believe in the current climate. Congress is on late recess to escape the Washington heat. Next year's presidential race is well underway, so expect aggressive competitive showmanship. Errors come from excess and immoderation that disclose failing leadership.

CapQ MC squares MARS all week (exact 8/19), matching the Caplunar so closely that it takes little else to trigger fires or ignite a fight. On 8/13, CanQ EP conjoins Pluto.

Arilunar (Aug 20)
The Arilunar is dormant. The Caplunar flows through in full force.

MARS' angularity in the CapQ continues all week, softened by VENUS crossing CapQ angles beginning 8/23 and continuing until she exceeds Mars' strength 8/26-27. The Cansolar's MOON-URANUS square crosses CanQ angles 8/23. On the last day, 8/27, Cansolar VENUS-SATURN crosses the CanQ horizon, competing with the seeming contrary message of the CapQ Venus crossing.

Canlunar (Aug 27)
The Canlunar covers August 27 to September 2. Something has changed. There's a new order of things. Uranus alone is angular, 1°19' from Descendant and in 0°25' PVP square with Jupiter. If we don't literally have new leadership in one or another key government positions, we at least have a new leading spirit.

Uranus aspected by Jupiter anticipates ideological rebellion, both peaceful and violent, and remapping the larger social contract. Liberal social and political agendas demand wider horizons, expanded opportunities, civil liberties, and enhanced diversity. Invention, new technology and technological vision, futurism, and, more generally, “good science” engages popular imagination. One might hope this aspect means that political and thought leaders show more insight, resourcefulness, and ability to understand and manage complexity. At best, it expresses collective optimism and anticipation of good change. At its least, ideas along these lines are suddenly flying.

VENUS begins the week on CapQ IC. However, on 8/27, CanQ MC squares MARS with VENUS-SATURN still on the horizon. On 8/31, the Capsolar's exact JUPITER-NEPTUNE square crosses angles just as MARS crosses EP (and Pluto crosses CanQ Ascendant). It's a dramatic week!

Liblunar (Sep 2)
The Liblunar covers September 2-9. For all practical purposes, it is identical with the Canlunar but with slightly closer orbs. Uranus is 0°29' from Descendant in 0°57' PVP square with Jupiter. The interpretation is identical to that for the Canlunar.

JUPITER-NEPTUNE repeats its CapQ angularity 9/2 (this time without Mars). Transiting NEPTUNE crosses on its own 9/4 and 9/6 (each of these has a plus-and-minus two-day orb, so the effect is continuous most of the week).

PROGRESSIONS & TRANSITS
Continuing in orb, as the month begins, are p Mars sextile r Pluto, the contentious p Mars semi-square r Mars, p Venus trine r Uranus, and p Sun aspects to p Venus and r Jupiter.

Trump's main long-term transit remains Neptune square natal Uranus. Its effects are primarily psychological. Uranus-Neptune aspects always mean a clash of divergent realities. With Neptune transiting Uranus, it commonly means that a compelling personal vision or dream incites one to make abrupt, surprising moves or shifts. Transiting Mars squares SSR Moon or its progression non-stop August 15-22 producing a week of irritation, friction, intolerance, and edgy conflict.

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Aug 10)
Nothing much is happening in the new SLR. No transiting planets are foreground, and the four downstage natal planets are all at least 5° from the angles. Those comprise his natal Moon-Sun opposition and Mercury-Neptune square.

Natal Moon-Sun accentuates his public persona; grants energy, forceful drive, and comfort with power; and magnifies his vanity, self-exaltation, and obstinacy. Natal Mercury-Neptune is the story-teller who can enthuse and enroll others and convince them of almost anything. Together, these portray the reality TV star, huckster, and campaigner.

Transiting Mars squares natal Midheaven (0°14'). This probably fits with the campaigner and salesman, too: He approaches both as a warrior besieging a city, stirring conflict and discontent. Causing trouble comes even easier to him this month than usual.

SIDEREAL DEMI-LUNAR RETURN (Aug 25)
NOTE Aug 25: This Demi-SLR set up in Biarritz, France instead of Washington. The forecast below will only apply as a lesser overlay once he returns to Washington: the primary influence of the fortnight will be from the France chart. An updated interpretation is here: viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2968&p=25896#p25896

Natal Venus, Saturn, and Neptune are closely angular along with transiting Pluto and a little Saturn. Natal Neptune (IC 0°57') and Saturn (Asc 1°49') are most closely angular, followed by transiting Pluto (2°04) and natal Venus (2°40'').

This is Trump's most demoralizing arrangement of his natal planets. Under Venus-Saturn-Neptune, dour darkness grips the psyche. Disillusionment strikes, ideals fall, grief cuts deep, and the enchantment ends. Venus, Saturn, and Neptune reflect hurtful betrayal, heart-sickness, and increasing distrust of pretty much everybody. Saturn-Neptune, the strongest pair, expresses emotional exhaustion, resignation, and defeat.

This time, Pluto bangs reality's gavel, more or less confirming his fears by squaring Neptune and opposing his Saturn and Venus. Pluto and Saturn both square his (not angular) natal Jupiter. Saturn opposes his (not angular) Mercury.

Furthermore, his emotions run strong: The Demi-Lunar has a partile Venus-Mars conjunction and (mundane) Moon-Neptune square. But transiting Sun also conjoins his natal Ascendant: He continues to receive attention. Perhaps that is enough light to lift his spotlight-loving soul out of its worst darkness.

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Sep 6)
This is an unpleasant month with survival instincts having the strongest hold on Mr. Trump's psyche. Natal Saturn is 0°06' from Westpoint. Transiting Saturn rises more widely, exactly opposite natal Mercury (0°13' in mundo).

His mood is dour. Natal Saturn foreground especially exposes our insecurities. We hear the skeletons rattling bones in our own closets and feel the encroachment of our own shortcomings. Typical Saturn behaviors arise in response: we become demanding, controlling, cautious, barricaded, evasive, and territorial. Health can suffer.

With transiting Saturn also foreground, this behavior is a natural response to greater demands on us by the world. Survival is threatened, even if it's only psychological (or ego) survival. Circumstances narrow, restrict, delay, and frustrate. Money is drained, especially with transiting Saturn square natal Jupiter, which does not have the benefit of being foreground. Saturn opposite natal Mercury is quite acute right now: He feels unheard, criticized, and discouraged. He must be methodical, conscientious, and attentive to meet the demands. His business interests suffer.

Additionally, a T-square of seven planets occurs in the deep background, producing three partile aspects that provide background information. Sun conjoins Mars (0°09'), reflective of outright combat and other struggle. Mercury opposes Neptune (0°14'), which deepens his communication and business problems and adds evasiveness, misdirection or misrepresentation, confusion, and disorientation: forthcoming facts are all doubtful. Third, Mercury squares Jupiter (0°57'), which might give him negotiating advantage or may merely mean that all this concerns a legal matter. Finally, Uranus squares Pluto (0°22'), suggesting an "everything changes now" impact that dismantles existing structures.

Trump Watch (alternative birth time)

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Feb 17, 2019 8:25 pm

[Recently a credible documentary case was made that Donald Trump's published birth certificate is fraudulent and that he was really born at 9:51 AM EDT. I propose testing this by making forecasts based on it, then comparing results against forecasts made for the 10:54 AM birth certificate time.]

PROGRESSIONS & TRANSITS
Continuing in orb, as the month begins, are p Mars sextile r Pluto, the contentious p Mars semi-square r Mars, p Venus trine r Uranus, and p Sun aspects to p Venus and r Jupiter. Though he has the burden of the very long-term p Saturn on natal Eastpoint, this is lightened and his popularity enhanced by his similarly long-term p Venus square p MC (which began in 2008 and will last the rest of his life).

Trump's transits this month are dire. Transiting Saturn conjoins SSR Midheaven July 28 to November 7, becoming exact on August 13 just as transiting Mars conjoins natal Mars. A week later, Mars conjoins progressed Moon and Sun August 20-25 when he will come under very pointed attack. All of this falls against the backdrop of transiting Uranus conjunct Washington local MC all month, being exact September 9.

Neptune squares natal Uranus until August 18. Its effects are primarily psychological. Uranus-Neptune aspects always mean a clash of divergent realities. With Neptune transiting Uranus, it commonly means that a compelling personal vision or dream incites one to make abrupt, surprising moves or shifts. With transiting Uranus aspecting natal Moon all month, truth will start to force its way through the cracks.

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Aug 10)
President Trump's August 10 Sidereal Lunar Return is moderately positive for him. His natal Moon-Sun-Uranus are foreground (the normal core elements of his personality, presenting as confidence or even narcissism, audaciousness, and an eagerness to go off script and off the rails). Transiting Jupiter and Neptune are closely foreground. These speak of success with entertainment, illusion, and showmanship.

Strongest of these is transiting Neptune square natal Uranus (0°48'), each within 2° of an angle. This aspect expresses altered realities, e.g., representing things as different than they actually are and drawing others into the picture woven. With Neptune squared by Jupiter, it's pure entertainment and is profitable - it serves him well.

Most of the other aspects support this positive spin. However, transiting Saturn squares natal Jupiter in the middleground (0°34' in mundo). He pays a price (in prestige and even cash) for the audacious show. He just doesn't pay a very big price.

SIDEREAL DEMI-LUNAR RETURN (Aug 25)
NOTE Aug 25: This Demi-SLR set up in Biarritz, France instead of Washington. The forecast below will only apply as a lesser overlay once he returns to Washington: the primary influence of the fortnight will be from the France chart. As revised interpretation, based on the Biarritz location, is here: viewtopic.php?f=46&t=2968&p=25897#p25897

The second half of the month is unfortunate and unpleasant for President Trump. Were the orbs of angularity closer, it could be seriously damaging, for the transiting planets in the foreground are Saturn and Neptune, supported by Pluto; but, as the orbs of their angularity are of moderate strength, so is the morose fortune they promise.

Natal Moon and Sun align with the Eastpoint. With Moon square MC 0°13', he is highly responsive to elements of his environment, reactive toward them, adaptive to them, and prone to distraction. Natal Mercury rising shares some of these traits.

But transiting Saturn is 3°07' from Descendant and transiting Neptune 4°16' from Midheaven. These express dark, worrisome moods. drained physical and psychological vitality, and disenfranchising events.

The rising Mercury squares Neptune in Trump's natal chart and squares the culminating transiting Neptune (1°20' in mundo) in the Demi-Lunar. For this entire two weeks, expect a lot of lies and other deception. Expect betrayal as well (both from Trump and of Trump). Fantasy blurs fact, judgement errs, and logic disappears in the wind. The remaining aspects (Neptune square natal Moon, Saturn opposite natal Mercury) support the message of depression, tedious difficulty, and inscrutable motives, perhaps with an actual failure of cognitive acuity.

Furthermore, while logic wanes, emotions run strong. A 0°20' Venus-Mars conjunction sits in the background, not far from Sun.

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Sep 6)
Benefic and malefic indicators coexist in roughly equal importance, forecasting a month of mixed results for the president - good things coexisting with and roughly balanced with bad things. In fact, the aspects and close angularities are all over the place, making the chart's central thrust difficult to identify.

Transiting Saturn is the most angular planet (square MC 0°57'), emphasizing the demands of the world around him and likely losses; yet transiting Venus is also quite close (square Asc 2°06') and transiting Jupiter is also (more widely) foreground. Presumably, what the world tries to take from him (the costs of his actions) involves something he loves, such as family. Meanwhile, his luminaries and Mercury are most closely angular (Sun and Moon each about a degree from the angles) along with natal Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune more widely foreground. He is clearly self-absorbed, glad-handing and playing the crowd - but that's not unusual for him.

In the face of serious demands on his time and resources, it is as if there is nothing solid - nothing of substance - that he brings in response. The exactly angular Saturn opposes his Mercury and squares his Jupiter, each about 4°: Deal-making doesn't work, negotiations are terminated: whoever he's trying to influence doesn't respect him and isn't listening to him.

And yet the angular transiting Venus squares his Moon and Uranus: He seems to be enjoying himself quite a lot. Transiting Jupiter, farther from the angle, opposes his Sun and Uranus, so he isn't penalized overly much. His important natal Moon-Sun and Mercury-Neptune aspects have free rein.

Three background partile aspects of transiting planets - Sun conjunct Mars, Mercury opposite Neptune, and Mercury square Jupiter - all reinforce the impression of the aggressive huckster trying to make a deal. He probably doesn't succeed but he manages to look good in the process. Since transiting Uranus exactly conjoins his Washington MC this week, there's a gigantic surprise waiting to be sprung. (Uranus crossing his natal DC MC as Saturn crosses his SSR MC is quite threatening to him.)

I don't really know at all what this new month will be like for him, but perhaps this approach of laying out the pieces will make evident whether this Lunar Return arises from his correct birth time, or one based on an unfounded rumor.

Geographic areas centered on map lines have a roughly 150-200 mile leeway (3°) for strong effects. For these mappings of planetary energies, see standard interpretations in Chapter 8 of Sidereal Mundane Astrology. (A link to the free current edition can always be found near the top of the Publications sub-forum.) Readers may wish to consider all planet lines and intersections against the standard interpretations.

Transits to Capsolar Planets

Post by Jim Eshelman » Wed Jul 31, 2019 11:35 am

Transits to Capsolar planets seem valid when interpreted as inherently, these would not be locale-specific. Preliminary conclusions from the first months of watching is that they are indeed important identifiers for locales where the 'natal' planet was angular in the Capsolar, or where it spins to a CapQ angle on a particular day.

t Pluto conj. Capsolar Pluto ALL MONTH (exact 8/19)
t Saturn conj. Capsolar Mercury START to 8/14
t Jupiter sq. Capsolar Neptune START to 9/5
t Jupiter conj. Capsolar Jupiter START to 9/8 (exact 8/23)
t Saturn conj. Capsolar Saturn 9/3 to END

MARS TRANSITS:
t Mars sq. Capsolar Venus 8/29-9/1 (exact 8/31)
t Mars sq. Capsolar Neptune 9/8-END
t Mars sq. Capsolar Jupiter 9/8-END

Where is Trump Sunday?

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri Aug 23, 2019 9:56 am

G7 convenes in France this weekend - not sure when.

Trump's Demi-SLR is Sunday, August 25, at 3:20 AM EDT, 9:20 AM CEDT. I'm guessing he'll be in Paris, but I don't know.

Can y'all help me watch for where he is at that time? (Thanks in advance.)

In the "He's doing it again!" category, if he's out of Washington Trump again avoids an emotionally devastating return chart that could have been useful in taking him down.

He's supposed to leave from Andrew's AF base at 11:00 PM bound for Bordeaux, France and the G7. The actual conference is in Biarritz, Fr.
He's already complaining he doesn't want to go and may well choose to go home early. Last year he left early, before the climate talks. I would be surprised if he stayed for them this year.

Leave at 11 PM what day?

PS They don't want him here either. After he walked out on the joint agreement event at the end of the last G7, they've decided not to issue any agreement list this time, (That's not exactly progress.)

OK, so unless we hear he isn't going, we should assume he's in France Sunday, either in Paris or at the meeting site.

Dammit, he must have a Sidereal astrologer advising him. He has had many horrid, laying-low lunars and demi-lunars this year and nearly always skipped the country just before they set up -- and he doesn't travel that much overall!

I honestly don't know. I think till he finds a reason to get {nassed} off and leaves, we don't know how long he'll stay. He'll be looking for reasons to come over insulted and take off, and other leaders are getting fed up with his insults and stupidity and plain rudeness.

The president's schedule is never announced in advance. We never know when he's getting on AF1 till less than 24 hours before.

He's at the summit. If he was there at 9:20 this morning (as he almost certainly was since he's attending), he had his Demi-SLR there, in Biarritz, France.

I have very little time today but will try to get a replacement forecast written.

Demi-SLR August 25, 2019 (Chart 1)

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Aug 25, 2019 9:18 am

Based on the birth certificate time, here is the breakdown of Donald Trump's August 25 Demi-SLR, calculated for Biarritz, France.

r Sun sq. Asc -0°25'
t Moon on MC -0°04'
------------------------------
r Moon on MC +0°04'

r Uranus on MC +3°36'
t Neptune on Dsc +5°47'

-- r Moon-Sun op. 1°43'
-- t Neptune sq. r Uranus 1°10'
-- r Moon-Uranus op. 3°19'
-- t Neptune sq. r Moon 4°29'

Other partile:
t Saturn sq. r Jupiter 0°13' in mundo
t Venus-Mars conj. 0°21'
t Sun conj. r Asc 0°50'

Based on this chart, the chief elements of the fortnight will be self-aggrandizement and, at best, stagecraft brought to the business of statesmanship. Transiting Moon exactly at MC plus the extreme elevation of his natal Sun (plus transiting Sun exactly on his natal Ascendant) shows this spotlight effect. Moon-Neptune is not so close (nor Neptune sufficiently angular on its own) to make sensitivities and vulnerability high, but perhaps just enough to empower the showman.

None of this, of course, is unusual for Trump, nor would we need astrology to guess this much. Nonetheless, in my opinion it's the correct interpretation of the chart.

His natal chart is kind to him for that part of the world: Natal Venus squares Ascendant within 0°37.

Post by Jim Eshelman » Sun Aug 25, 2019 9:45 am

Based on the alternative birth time (allegedly from his mother), here is the breakdown of Donald Trump's August 25 Demi-SLR, calculated for Biarritz, France. No transiting planets are foreground.

t Neptune on Dsc -4°21'
t Jupiter sq. Asc -2°01'
t Venus on EP -0°28'
------------------------------

This chart is significantly different than that for Washington. Whereas the Washington chart is dominated by two Saturns, this one leads with Venus and Jupiter - but also with Mars.

The overall tone is positive, rewarding and - adding all the foreground planets - a lot of fun! Passions run high, drama surges and dances, and the net effect uplifts and rewards him.

This chart is atypical Trump, primarily because there is little "him" in it. The circumstances dance almost on their own; yet, with Sun conjunct natal Ascendant, events tend to swarm around him like maypole dancers. Notice that there are a couple of mundane partile transits out of the foreground - Pluto to Saturn, Saturn to Jupiter - which are not kind to him so, behind the scenes, there is thread and a price to pay; but it's unlikely these will overpower the angular benefics.

Moon enters Cancer in an hour or so. We should see a change in the current almost at once.
