I’ve studied trump’s chart so many times since 2016 that it makes me almost physically ill. In 2016, I was on a radio show for an astrology book and the host asked me who would win the election. Even though I knew trump would be approaching a Jupiter return – like Obama when he won, like Bush Jr. when he won his second term – I said Clinton. My own bias blinded me. I just couldn’t understand how anyone could support a racist, mysoganistic, corrupt man like trump.
Now it’s three years later. It’s coming to light that he withheld funding for the Ukraine for “a favor,” to dig up dirt on his front runner’s son, Hunter Biden. He’s surrounded by complicit allies – Bill Barr, Mike Pompeo, Mike Pence. But now there’s a whistleblower – or several – within the State Department and what we’re seeing being played out is a test of the constitution, the rule of law. Do we, as a people, want to live under an autocracy or under a democracy?
I was born in a foreign country to American parents, which meant I was automatically given a choice about citizenship when I turned 18. I could have chosen dual citizenship – Venezuela and the U.S. I chose the U.S. These days, when Venezuela is mentioned, it’s in terms of how socialism – the alleged Democratic Party agenda – destroyed that country. But that’s a Republican talking point and total bullshit. What destroyed Venezuela was the corruption and greed of Chavez, then Maduro, and farther back, every dictator before them.
Trump, like these dictators in Venezuela, like dictators around the world, doesn’t give a damn about you or me. He’s concerned about enriching himself and his family. Take a look at Ivanka’s China trademarks. At how the military stayed at trump’s Scotland resort. At how his hotel properties in D.C. have prospered during his presidency.
In his chart, I desperately want to see an impeachment conviction, where he ends up in solitary confinement tweeting to himself. But honestly, I don’t trust myself to see any of it objectively. And this is where all of us fail, all of us to try to see the future in one form or another. We are human. Fallible. Prejudiced in one way or another. Even if he’s removed from office, then Pence needs to go with him and so do Barr and Pompeo and all the others who have been complicit in this – Lindsey Graham, Mitch McConnell. I think that Pence, in particular, has been complicit since the beginning, perhaps hoping that for a little while, he might become Prez Pence and try to usher us into the world of The Handmaid’s Tale.
I fail to understand how anyone, particularly women, can support trump now. That aside, don’t take my word for any of it. I’m a huge fan of astrologer Alex Miller, who posts I’ve reposted before. Here’s his take on trump and the impeachment inquiry:
The bottom line, though, seems to be that that the man who promised to “drain the swamp,” became the swamp. Now, finally, he may be held accountable. Even if he isn’t convicted in the senate, because the republicans don’t appear to have a conscience, the censure of impeachment remains a permanent stain, something that would scream, This guy invited foreign governments to interfere in the 2020 election. His VP Pence, his attorney general Barr and his secretary of state Pompeo appear to be complicit in all this. Stay tuned. The revelations are practically hourly at this point. I’m hopeful.
And to all for you trump supporters who have gotten angry at us for posting our views on politics and said they won’t ever buy another one of our books, well, as Vonnegut used to say, So it goes.
