Magic Carpet Ride


As much is it makes me nauseous to write about, let alone even think about Donald Trump, his magic carpet ride is over. The overwhelmingly powerful and dynamic planetary influences that swept him into power have melted away. I had predicted that he would win the election, although every other indication was saying no way he could win. But win he did, and the planet has nearly wobbled off of it’s axis ever since. The double Jupiter Dasa (planetary cycle) that blew open the doors for him, has shifted into a much more confining Saturn influence that will affect his fate until 2021. Trump’s new Saturn cycle began in January 2019 just as the democrats took over the house of representatives, and basically put a damper on all that he does, or attempts to do. The stage hook is close at hand. As my dear wife just reminded me, Saturn represents falls from high places, literally or figuratively. Although it may seem otherwise, I really don’t have the stomach for politics, but hey, while I’m at it, let’s talk about our illustrious leader, Justin Trudeau. Strangely and somewhat karmically, Trudeau begins a strong Jupiter Cycle one month before the federal elections this Fall. Plus on the day of the election Jupiter returns to the exact degree of longitude that it was in when Trudeau was born, pretty much ensuring his win. Possibly there’s someone out there that is radiating more planetary power, but I doubt it. So it looks like, out with Trump, and in with Trudeau. The hog in trough antics of some of our local BC representatives has been exposed, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we find ourselves heading for another visit to to polls. 2019 is truly just a prelude as to what is to come in 2020 as Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto get real close in Capricorn the sign of all government parties, agencies, offices, etc. My advice is to think hard and long in this 2019 time, and know that if there was ever a year in our history that will be of major consequence it will be 2020. Interestingly, 2020 is supposed to mean perfect vision, and we need to develop our vision and focus on what we truly want. Old regimes are crumbling, and new ground is developing. What will it be people? It’s time for a new birthing. Just a parting thought. If we’re not nurturing our soul by meditation, it won’t matter who’s at the helm, and we will continue to grumble and grind. A change in lifestyle and values is truly needed in order to attain Peace on Earth.
