The All-American Demagogue
Donald Trump is tough, "cheap steak tough" as Gil Scott Heron said of Ronald Reagan, and The Donald wants to be President in 2016. This is his sixth time, over the course of 3 decades. That's staying power, the persistence of endless self-promotion. His brand has grown from dork to demagogue, and, as blunt-talking billionaires go, he's better then the others at capturing the "great unwashed" demographic of pissed off white men, the only force conservatives have that they can realistically count on to stop Hillary."Donald is a Warlock, a bull in the Republican china shop"
The Aug 6th Republican debate is going to get a full dose of the Donald, as both transiting Venus and Mercury are conjunct his natal Mars on that day. "Decisiveness. Mental assertiveness. Honesty. Practical solutions. Technical skills. Fast work, rapid progress." and "Healthy passions. Physical attraction. Strenuous enjoyment. Joint enthusiasm. Romance. Creating art or decoration." Neptune is trine his natal Mercury: "This a wonderful time for any mental work that requires creativity and intuition. You are open to new ideas and communications seem to flow easily. You may even discover some psychic powers." MORE

Your Sun is in Cancer, the Third Eye (Al Tarf)
Cancer is closely linked with the Moon, and is always liable to be emotionally and physically influenced by the Moon's phases and eclipses. Some Cancers report the shape of their faces actually change with the waxing and waning Moon. The Cancer paradox goes along the same cycle. Sometimes they crave adoration and domination like a rock star, at another time they want to disappear and Netflick-binge in private. Some of the changes are natural, some are caused by other's expectations. In fact, you mirror others' needs and assumptions, based on your appearance or demeanor. Like the Moon, Cancers reflect the light cast upon them. The real Cancer is shrouded in mystery, with a dark dictatorial side that is hidden behind its opposite; Cancer's nurturing maternal nature. Either way, Cancers are protective of those they love or rule; they hang on to them with the tenacity of the crab with its claws.
Cancer's constellation, the Crab nebula, is one of the oldest known systems. The ancients believed it was the mother of the galaxies. That's the bigger picture, since Cancer really represents more than the Moon, it describes the birth and molting of stars, and the growth of the Universe. Cancer's origins are from far, far away. On Earth, Cancer can remake themselves to suit, or shed their old skins to assume a larger, more magnificent suit of armor. Cancer is primarily interested in growth, and, much like the leaves of a vine, Cancer has the mentality of mindless propagation. They want to infiltrate and dominate all they encounter. When sun, water, and seed meet under the right conditions, growth is spectacular. That's why Cancer's temperament is regulated by the same Moon's phases that regulate the oceans, fertility, and agriculture. The Cancer must operate in sync with the natural cycles, which are often at odds with the needs of the rest of the world. This makes the level of working in secrecy in Cancers almost unfathomable to others. Cancer's fear can devolve into paranoid schizophrenia under the stress.
The use of the word Cancer to describe the disease is because it describes the unwanted, uncontrolled growth of dysfunctional cells--much like the problem with Cancers who are locked into cycles that they cannot control. Since they work so well with secret agendas, Cancers are often actors, salespeople, managers, politicians (Barack Obama is a cancer) and behind-the-scenes manipulators. Cancers DO change personalities the same way an actor changes hats, or a change of role. The Cancer starts his/her cycle during the New Moon, when she/he determines her goals for the month—or the greater cycle she is aiming for. By visualizing—sharing, dramatizing, advertising, whatever, the Cancer has until the full Moon to realize the lunar "intentions". Many Cancers write these intentions down and keep them close to their bodies (under the pillow, in the pocket) to activate their powers of concentration.
You have tact and achieving success can be an act of faith. You must believe--and that comes from other's belief in YOU, which you can induce with your appearance and behavior. Cancers run on faith, hope and the belief in eternal cycles and without it they can become lost and deranged. Since balance cannot truly be achieved, the cancer must work within the system, and bide their time until the time is right. They can make headway in life by the exercise of prudence, care and economy; and this position gives some degree of business instinct and forethought, also adaptability for practical matters, whether in the household, in more public affairs, or in applied science. This is favorable for gain through the parents, and it inclines to the acquisition of house or land property and to dealing in these. In the case of elderly people this position is rather good for comfort and prosperity in old age. Your success in life will depend more than with most people upon a favorable environment; because if circumstances oppose you, you are apt to feel keenly a sense of being hampered, thwarted and restricted, and withdraw emotionally.

in the Zodiac
From the Book of Cancer
"The ancient females who devised astrology saw that the Crab Nebula was the largest in the visible heavens—like a mother giving birth to galaxies. Cancer is the Mother of Heaven. The Arab astrologers named your star Al Tarf, which represents the Third Eye—the all-seeing wisdom of mother nature. In our Zodiac, the Leo huntress is looking through this Moon's "eye"—a throwback to and connection with our natural animal origins and instincts, and to a time when ALL humanity was directed and illuminated by the Moon, in the same way we use GPS and internet now. The Moon and Saturn were all-important indicators to the ancients, since they were considered benefactors and symbols of abundance.
Cancers are still existing on a plane of a lunar Zodiac, the Moon's Nodes—their have a private world they inhabit, that soothes them and gives them encouragement. Cancer females—and many sensitive male Cancers—are a mystery but use powerful amulets, garments, and are part of a secret society based on dreams and occurring in natural cycles. This may be the real "politics". This is why we also associate Cancers with political leadership and cultural influence, since they can use their invisible connection with humanity to deliver the message. A Cancer can telegraph a political statement with a hat, a wink, a single gesture—that would take the typical solar-based pedant thousands of words to convey."

After the Bubble, Comes the Bust
The end of the bull market in China
Pluto retrograde is opposed Sun and Mars (see chart), which means stagnation and loss. China and Greece are now experiencing this transit full bore.
Right now, Jupiter, our lucky gas giant, is opposed the natal Sun of the USA's horoscope. July is also the first contact of Pluto square the USA's Uranus, which starts to unravel the bullshit. Pluto is coming back in November to bury any ideas we entertain about a quick, easy way out of the current mess. This is a loss of not only our national identity and unity, but a collapse of our good fortune:
"The current circumstances are not designed to increase your prosperity. The male leadership that has led us to this crisis will be humiliated. Prepare for a period that will deplete your material assets. Your generosity is likely to benefit the wrong people or be wasted in worthless endeavors. Those who would like to help you are apt to be rendered powerless themselves or unwittingly steer you in the wrong direction. Those who come to you with grandiose ideas or the promise of some successful enterprise are not likely to be able to deliver, no matter how well-intentioned they are. It is important to realize that you will probably not be able to remove the forces that oppose you, which only leaves you the option of finding a constructive way to work around them." From Io Astrology
The future is even more dire, when Jupiter squares the USA's Saturn in August and September, when hustlers and liars will dominate and those who continue to cling on to false hope will be shorn like sheep:
"The people or situations you encounter during this period can make it seem worthwhile to forgo your own mature judgment and experience, to try short cuts, or avoid the rules and regulations. Resist the temptation." Ibid
In October those who willingly accept their losses will be the fortunate ones, as Jupiter trines with Pluto. This is a short window of opportunity to divest from stupid investments, and dump stocks and bonds, get out of mutual funds, sell your house and live as simply as you can, accepting the new reality of deflation.
The situation begins to spiral out of control in November, when Saturn squares our national Uranus, and we are compelled to squash hope and replace it with rational decisions:
"Things may become frustrating during this period, especially when dealing with older people. You’ll be in trouble if you are too liberal, and yet stymied by taking a too conservative approach. You may encounter too much emphasis on the future with no consideration for tradition and past experience is apt to be as unsuccessful as being stuck in the past unable to consider the future." Ibid
But the worst comes in November, when Pluto comes back to turn off the lights:
"This long-term influence is likely to bring difficult but not insurmountable circumstances, the nature of which involves overcoming those with more power, revitalizing or renovating something that has been lost, development and conservation of resources. Its target is your generation as a whole and its challenge is focused on the political and economic structures and institutions associated with your generation." Ibid

Pluto and the Generations
By the time Pluto entered Sagittarius, in late 2007, the world was rife with repression, recession, war, poverty and injustice, and was ready to blow. Sagittarius is a fire sign, compressed by Pluto, which can only mean explosion.

And the Molotov. MORE
