Some astrology for hurricane Dorian

What are Canlunars?

They are charts set by the Moon’s entrance into Sidereal Cancer. I always use the Fagan-Bradley SVP and present them and their progressions, using my technique to progress them, in the Tropical Zodiac for the convenience of readers.

I do not use signs but note all positions as true body or true positions in space using their measurement from zero degrees Aries in the Tropical Zodiac just to have an anchor point used by most astrologers.

The significance is that appropriate points for events are swept by the progressing angles. I generally allow a 2 degree orb for consideration, sometimes a little more.
Plenty of Pluto to coincide with the massive destruction and probable huge loss of lives and/or missing in the Bahamas caused by hurricane Dorian. The progressed Canlunar (shown in the Tropical zodiac) captures appropriate symbolism from the previous year's eclipses for that destruction and loss of life.

The Canlunar covering hurricane Dorian's stall over Grand Bahama Island progressed to the stall there on September 2nd, 1:30 am, EDT, with all eclipses from September 1st 2018 through September 2nd 2019. None of the eclipses located there had Mars or Pluto on an angle and only 1 had Uranus near an angle (The total lunar eclipse of January 21st had Uranus within 1°20' of it's Desc).

The progressed Canlunar had an MC at 214°34' (6°55' Scorpio in longitude).
It had it's Uranus on the IC and it's Pluto on the Asc.

All of the following aspects are from eclipse points to the progressed Canlunar and were measured in right ascension.

It had Pluto from the January 5th solar eclipse on it's Asc.

It had the January 21st total lunar eclipse square the MC (within 1°30' of RA) and eclipse Pluto on the Asc.

Saturn and Pluto from the July 2nd total solar eclipse straddled the progressed Canlunar's Asc (their midpoint was on it), it's Mars square to the progressed Canlunar's MC and and it's Uranus on it's IC.

The July 16th lunar eclipse was square to the progressed Canlunar's MC (within 2°40' of RA), it's Saturn and Pluto straddling the Asc and it's Uranus on the IC.

Do The Math


"Allan Jay Lichtman (born April 4, 1947) is an American political historian who teaches at American University in Washington, D.C. He is well known for predicting the election results for the president of the United States Presidential Election since 1984, including forecasting the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election remarkably early."

The 13 Keys to the White House


"When five or fewer keys are false, the incumbent party wins; when any six or more are false, the challenging party wins."

"Prospectively, the Keys to the White House has correctly forecast the popular vote winner of all seven presidential elections from 1984 to 2012, usually months or even years prior to Election Day."

1 Party Mandate - After the midterm elections, the incumbent party holds more seats in the U.S. House of Representatives than it did after the previous midterm elections.

2 Contest - There is no serious contest for the incumbent-party nomination.

3 Incumbency - The incumbent-party candidate is the sitting president.

4 Third party - There is no significant third party or independent campaign.

5 Short-term economy - The economy is not in recession during the election campaign.

6 Long-term economy - Real per-capita economic growth during the term equals or exceeds mean growth during the previous two terms.

7 Policy change - The incumbent administration effects major changes in national policy.

8 Social unrest - There is no sustained social unrest during the term.

9 Scandal - The incumbent administration is untainted by major scandal.

10 Foreign/military failure - The incumbent administration suffers no major failure in foreign or military affairs.

11 Foreign/military success - The incumbent administration achieves a major success in foreign or military affairs.

12 Incumbent charisma - The incumbent-party candidate is charismatic or a national hero.

13 Challenger charisma - The challenging-party candidate is not charismatic or a national hero.

My Pence Chart

I was never really satisfied with the chart I had for Pence. It was only tied to his wedding and not very solidly. A post on January 22nd caused me to find a better match by tying it to his first loss in running for the U.S. House of Representatives in 1988 and his first victory for a seat in 2000 and then running that chart to his wedding. That produced a chart that yielded convincing results for all 3 events. Using that chart for January 13, 2020 I get a chart that could be appropriate if he wants to see tRump go down and he goes down with him then or 3 days later. Secondary progressed MC in Washington 21°31' (3 degrees [3 days]) from exact square by transiting Saturn and Pluto.

The new time is June 7, 1959, 2:05 pm, CDT, Columbus, IN (Moon = 000°41' Cancer).



I think the strong natal Moon opposite natal Saturn on the MC/IC axis fits with his change from being raised in a Irish Catholic Democrat home all of his life to become an evangelical, born-again Christian, while in college and a Republican around that same time - conservatism and a negative outlook were always a part of his makeup. I think the chart explains his attendance at the December 11th meeting with tRump, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

Moving that birth chart to the White House yields 13°29' Cancer on the MC - that fits with the current Saturn transit across the IC (adding precession advances the IC to 14°22' Capricorn now) and the transiting Saturn/Pluto midpoint over it since the inauguration.

Instant karma got me

Instant example of what I posted about timing connections in astrology last night. I had worked charts that show me a bad day for tRump on January 25th and I thought maybe he would give in on the shutdown then but now I think that day is backlash in response to his interference with Cohen's scheduled testimony. With him every day could reflect a problem in any number of areas. Which one to pick?

Cohen postpones congressional testimony


The 30th is another day that does not look good for the fool. He may be embarrassed with another win over him by Nancy Pelosi in regards to his SOTU speech then.

End of the shutdown may stll take until February 2nd or 3rd.

For the ratfink tRump:

Not enough time

(or energy sometimes). I have to pick and choose which charts I will work on. I certainly do not intentionally intend to look at the charts of anyone who may run for the office of president until that field is whittled down in 2020.

For those who have little or no knowledge of astrology (and for many who do) - there is no way to know what any aspect may coordinate with. Think about the horoscopes of multiple birth siblings - twins, triplets, etc.. They have virtually the same charts (as we say in astrology) but not the same experiences at the same time - getting married, having babies, suffering major injuries or illnesses and on and on. The marriage of one is a happy experience shared by all in some manner but no astrologer, without inside information, could say which one it would be or even name the event looking at the charts perhaps 3 years before. All that could really be seen in them would likely be a positive or easy or happy time in them.

That is why there have been no astrologers, no matter how famous, that can be shown to have a string of exact predictions despite the great number of practitioners through thousands of years. If anybody thinks differently I have a chart covering 78 years (in 3 days) and would like them to prove their case by telling me what exactly occurred when and where I experienced even 1 aspect in my life.

I can determine when tRump may experience difficult times but as to what event it may coordinate with if any is known about (because we experience some things on a psychological level which we may not share with anyone and/or on a cellular level like when a tumor is growing that we ourselves do not know about) the best that might be done is to get in the ballpark or get lucky with our guess based on some knowledge [like the date and time of a court appearance] and get it right.

I chose the January 2020 time for tRump's leaving office because of the transits to his natal chart then coupled with his current and what I presume will be an ongoing situation.

My tRump Astrology and Info Posts

Off the record, on the QT and very hush, hush, dear reader.

My measurements are made in right ascension and expressed in degrees and minutes.

I think the strongest aspects to affect both tRump's natal and inaugural charts will take him from office more than 1 year short of his having completed even 1 term in office.

It is a triumvirate of the transiting Sun, Saturn, and Pluto opposite his natal Saturn, square his progressed natal Jupiter and on his inaugural chart's progressed MC while squaring it's Jupiter at the same time. A heavy blow to all 3 of his most personal charts on the same day. On that same day his secondary progressed IC will be on the total solar eclipse of August 21, 2017, with eclipse Saturn on his progressed Desc.


This paran in tRump's natal chart ties his Moon and Sun to Mars, the 3 of them acting in unison as can be easily seen in his day to day behavior. Mars is also the most angular planet in his chart, making this configuration already involving the lights, the most powerful aspect in the chart. It will come to chart angles once a day in a diurnal chart, at least once a month in a progressed lunar return, and once a year in a progressed solar return.

In the end, the astrology of January 13, 2020, (short of 3 years into his term in office) will play out for tRump. That is some powerful astrology to have transiting Sun, Saturn, and Pluto in opposition to your natal Saturn on the same day.

Donald Trump - *** ** ****

Parans to Mon --092°02' -- 260°25' -- 328°48' -- 080°25'
Parans to Sun -- 330°37' -- 082°18' -- 193°59' -- 262°18'
Parans to Mar --047°16' ---149°26' -- 251°37' -- 329°26'


The Sun (294°42'), Saturn (294°42'), and Pluto (294°45') on January 13, 2020.

Charts with points that will be aspected:

George Washington's inauguration secondary progressed Sun/Pluto midpoint at 294°14' on Jan 13, 2020
trump's natal Saturn 115°43' is opposite
trump’s progressed inauguration MC at 293°28' (add 1 degree the next day- Jan 14)
Nixon’s natal White House IC at 295°51'
Richard M Nixon resigns as President, the MC of that chart is 114°27′ (IC is at 294°27')
Watergate arrest’s Zenith at 294°22'
Watergate arrest’s Mars opposite at 114°48'
JFK secondary progressed Sun at assassination opposite at 114°01'
Noon chart for Mercer has a Sun/Saturn midpoint at 114°48′ opposite 294°48′
Bannon on Jan 13, 2020. His secondary progressed Neptune will be at 204°47′ – squared by 90°
Republican party secondary progressed Mars on Jan 13, 2020 at 294°18'
tRump Jr. has secondary progressed Mars (in longitude) on his papa’s Saturn
My Putin MC in Moscow (chart made in 2012) 294°19'
Ratification of the Constitution (June 21, 1788, 1 pm, LMT, Concord, NH) progressed to same: Moon at 114°26' [opp 294°26'). Conjunct the Constitution natal Mercury at 114°39'.
The IC of my rectification for JFK located in Washington, DC, which I did in 1976 (a centennial year for the U.S.) 294°14'.

Cohen's plea (Flip) took place in Manhattan on November 29, 2018, at 9 am, EST (screen grab of document from Rachel Maddow's show). The chart's MC at 204°24'. The East Point , an exact 90° square to the MC at 294°24' will be transited by the Sun, Saturn, and Pluto on January 13, 2020.

Charts related to the presidency from 1789 - Washington's inauguration, 1946 - tRump's birth, 1972 - several Watergate points, and the 2017 inauguration, coming to or originally involving a common point at 294 degrees on January 13th, 2020, with three transiting bodies held by that same degree on that day. It might mean something related to the presidency term that began on January 20, 2017.

The lunar eclipse on January 21, 2019, located to the White House falls on the MC/IC axis with tRump's natal Saturn on the MC and transit Uranus on the Desc.

The Nadir is at 294°03'. Eclipse Pluto at 293°01' is on it. So is the eclipse Sun/Saturn midpoint at 293°59'. It is also the point where the Sun, Saturn, and Pluto will meet next January 13th (2020).

I think it signals the significant change in the way the loser is going to be treated by first the Congress and media and eventually his "base" this year presaging his removal. Given his body image and lifestyle the year's stress events could bring on health failures strong enough to force that removal.

Add Lindsey Graham to the list of rethugs taken down by the Sun, Saturn, and Pluto wrecking ball of January 2020. The trio will square his natal Neptune (which stationed the day before his birth and only moved 3 SECONDS of arc on it, so timing of aspect is exact) and oppose his Sun/Mars midpoint at the same time (January 13) transit Neptune is trine his Sun.

However he will probably know the ship is going down for sure when transit Neptune begins it's 7 oppositions in 32 months to his progressed Sun on April 27, 2019. That will be a constant through all the rest of 2019 and will last until way past the 2020 elections.

The 2017 Inauguration's 2019 solar return (precession corrected) occurs at 0:12:35 am, EST. It is followed 3 minutes and 22 seconds later by a lunar eclipse. The return and the eclipse charts have the Moon on the MC and the Sun on the IC in the White House. A full moon indicating that the term has expanded as much as it can and will begin diminishing from this time on (thanks to the Democratically controlled House of Representatives). I think the inauguration the return springs from will indeed be finished before another solar return for it next January 20th.

The voting public has awakened to the Rethugs failure to lead effectively. In 2018 after the voting public experienced less than 2 years of Rethug disastrous attempts at governing they turned them out of the House of Representatives in record numbers compared to most Rethug administrations going all the way back to 1914 when the House first had 435 members. Only 4 greater House losses by Rethugs in those 104 years.

In the not too distant future Rethugs will likely see themselves out of power for a period reminiscent of elections after the crash of 1929 from 1932 through 1994 when they had the majority in 2 Congress's out of 30 in the House and 5 out of 30 in the Senate. They were denied leadership for 58 out of 62 years during which time the country recovered from the financial disaster their leadership caused and built the most prosperous middle class in it's history while they were out of power. Make America great again was done by Democratic leadership then and again after the 2008 fiasco.


President Obama had to increase the deficit only because he had to bail out Wall Street after the worst financial crash in modern American history occurred in September of 2008 (George W. Bush's term) after 8 years of Rethuglican leadership in the White House, the Senate, and the House of Representatives

The largest crash before that, the Great Depression, also followed more than 8 years of Rethug leadership in the Presidency and both houses of Congress.

Rethuglican leadership has crashed the world economy twice in less than a century. Maybe they can be kept out of political power for the next one.

In addition to the direct transits the midpoints of transiting Sun/Neptune, Saturn/Neptune, and Neptune/Pluto oppose tRump's natal Mars/Pluto midpoint on January 13.

tRump natal progressed to January 13, 2020, winds up with the USA total solar eclipse of Aug 21, 2017, on it’s IC and eclipse Saturn on the Desc

2017 inaugural progressed to January 13 2020 and transits.

"Charts showing Donald’s and Donald Jr.’s charts engaged by the total solar eclipse in August 2017 and the Saturn and Pluto conjunction in January of 2020. Looks like a family affair."


About Benedict Arnold. Sound familiar?


"Abrupt and impatient with anything he deemed superfluous to the matter at hand, Arnold had a fatal tendency to criticize and even ridicule those with whom he disagreed."

"Without the discovery of his treason in the fall of 1780, the American people might never have been forced to realize that the real threat to their liberties came not from without, but from within."

tRump has a progressed New Moon coming in his natal chart in 2019.

Links to it in right ascension and in longitude.

Saturn in Capricorn will oppose the US Sun January 17, 2019, in longitude and RA when the next Congress takes over, and will station in opposition in September 2019. An event that precipitates September 18th and 19th station occurs on about July 25th. The July date tells us there is less than 1 year for almost everyone to finally believe he will be put out. During that September time he will finally admit that he has lost and will begin looking for a deal which he will probably finalize in the 3 days before Thanksgiving. That deal will see his leaving office in January 2020.

2019 finds the wretch in a constant struggle with Saturn transiting his inauguration's Pluto 3 times, square his natal Moon on November 3rd in longitude and November 9th in RA.

Saturn will transit tRump's inauguration Pluto 3 times in 2019. It will also oppose Sibly Sun once, square Sibly Saturn 3 times and oppose Sibly Jupiter 3 times in that year. While tRump will reap what he has sown we will too.
