Astrology and History

For Jake Tapper of CNN May 4, 2017

I like you, your network and artwork, which tells me that you are open to other’s ideas of interests, which could explain a lot about the history of politics; it’s unfounded, but it is a science and an art, which as been around for over 4,000 years. I was looking at my chart, and being born in the 50’s, there is history connected to different eras, even in astrology. Don’t go away. Don’t have an interest in astrology, but the dates and world events coincided. I sense you have a very open mind and could find this an interesting piece to share on the air, or to use for your own use. I’ve been given permission to use this information any way I wish, as this hard computer programmer has been working to help me find great in interpretations to help people understand their lives a little better, gain insight, and perhaps all of us will have a better future. Here it is. I’m taking a chance of being laughed at or deleted. I owe this allowance to share to John Halloran, who creates software for astrologers. Here’s some history timelines I found in my chart. You can omit the what I call “astrobabble,” because uneducated people don’t understand that those planets, etc, just coincides with these world activities. Use all or part if you wish, just even for a finishing touch. My interest in astrology began in 1978. I’m now 62 and still find the mysteries of the universe quite compelling, and at the very least entertaining:

Neptune sextile Pluto (Strength: 6.19)

Dates between 1942 and 1956: this is the only aspect Neptune has made to Pluto during this century, and the planets will remain in sextile (astro lingo) to each other for another hundred years, although the signs the planets occupy will continue to change as time passes.

For those born between 1942 and 1956, Neptune was in Libra and Pluto in Leo. These people were born at a time of global war. Governments rose and fell; kings were ousted from their castles. There were breakthroughs in air power (Neptune in Libra) which helped establish the balance of power between the U.S. and the Soviet Union. This time was filled with meetings and peace conferences between global leaders. Those born during this time know that compromise is not enough to achieve peace; you are naturally suspicious of your leaders, and this will help to promote greater honesty and accountability on the part of political figures.

If you were born between 1957 and 1970, Neptune was in Scorpio and Pluto in Virgo. There were new advances in health and medicine, as well as rapid spread of illegal drugs. Our long- held conservative attitude about sex began to dissolve, and we began to realize that marriage was not essential to maintain a committed relationship. Those born during this time seek to serve and improve society. You are also angry about the current state of our environment and natural resources.

If you were born between 1971 and 1983, Neptune was in Sagittarius and Pluto in Libra. Your attitudes about religion, education and human interactions are most likely different from those of your parents. Your religious beliefs, or spiritual practices, are important to you, and you are deeply concerned for the fate of your planet and the race of man. You will insist that your leaders be straight with you and will not accept excuses or manipulation. You are also interested in occult sciences, and many advances in this area will be made by members of your generation.

If you were born between 1984 and 1998, Neptune was in Capricorn and Pluto in Scorpio. You are part of a generation which will make great progress in dealing with power responsibly, both in terms of interpersonal relationships and as protectors of our Mother Earth. You will seek to transform society and replace rampant injustice with compassionate guidance.

1995-2010: Your generation will revolutionize higher education, travel, religion and politics. The world will truly be a melting pot, as widely different cultures combine and religions and philosophies blend. You have prophetic abilities and are optimistic about the future of humanity.

This is current. As a researcher (part of the many interests to get at the root of the problem, you may find this interesting:

Uranus square Pluto (Strength: 4.62)

This aspect is a “generational” one and appears in the birth charts of those born in the early to mid-1930s. This time in history was characterized by a global apathy toward the injustices taking place in the world. The Depression was underway in America, while Hitler was making his move in Europe. Although there was evidence that Hitler was committing atrocities against others, the world preferred to look the other way.

Similarly, persons born at this time tend to shirk responsibility for protecting their own freedom. Instead, they expect that there will always be someone else to fight the battles for them. However, if problems develop in your immediate environment, you will react immediately. This is because such problems affect you directly rather than being “somewhere out there.” For instance, you may neglect to vote on election day and then complain bitterly about the choice of the majority. Try to be more direct in dealing with situations that are not yet causing you problems. Don’t assume that someone else is taking care of it.

Keep your finger on the pulse of the political and social conditions around you. Be wary of those who attempt to claim a position of power while others are looking away in apathy. Do what you can to call attention to injustice and wrongdoing. You’ll feel much better about yourself if you do. It is possible that you will fight against those who would abuse power through legal methods. Or you may inspire others to resist them or even see that they are removed from office.

Trump was born in 1946 and is considered a “Full Moon Baby” being born on a full moon. Perhaps his father was part of the 30’s…

So, as the world evolves or dissolves. I pray we evolve.
