06: Astrology of Donald Trump and the Future of America
If you have ever question the validity of astrology before, I can tell you that in this episode when I look at Donald Trump's chart and how it connects to the chart of America it's no accident. America was in a huge cycle of change before the election and Donald Trump is the catalyst that brings every flaw of our system to the surface. When we look at Astrological Charts, it's really important to think about how the person is utilizing their gifts. I approach discussing Donald Trump's chart and the chart of America this way, since I don't know Donald Trump and I've never had a session with him. I did a lot of research and I pulled different clips from the media that just illustrate what I'm observing in terms of Donald Trump’s Astrology. Trump was born a Gemini and his Sun is in the 10th house which means he loves being in the public and with his Sun is also conjunct (with) the planet Uranus which is about being a maverick or revolutionary that's unpredictable. The planet Uranus also connects to broadcasting and a wider audience so right away we know this is a guy that enjoys being in the public light. He also has Leo Rising with the planet Mars there which means he loves to be noticed. He wants to be admired, thrives on competition and he also loves to win. Example: Opening Sound Track “the Apprentice” He enjoys not following the rules and his personality likes to rev people up and get a reaction. Megan Kelly & Trump interview clip: “One of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don't use a politician's filter. However that is not without its downsides. In particular when it comes to women You've called women you don't like fat pigs dogs and bees fast and disgusting animals.” Trump replies, “Only Rosie O'Donnell.” Donald Trump's chart is definitely not designed for an inherent sensitivity towards others. He's driven to do things that make him feel good and gets him what he wants. Donald Trump sound bite on Political Correctness: “ I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. I've been. I've been challenged by so many people and I don't frankly have time for total political correctness. And to be honest with you this country doesn't have time either” in his case the planet Mercury is in Cancer which makes him very sensitive and impressionable. He doesn't overthink his answers, he more responds with his feelings and is likely to be unclear with others and is susceptible to deception. I'm not just saying that because he uses the line fake news a lot. He is wired to look at things in a way that supports what he believes to be true. In this interview with Matt Lauer, you can hear Trump take a position on an issue, and change it to suit himself. Matt Lauer says, “But the things you've said about President Obama and that he is not doing so well and yet when referring to a comment that Putin made about you, I think he called you, “a brilliant leader.” You said it's always a great honor to be so nicely complimented by a man so highly respected within his country and beyond.” Trump responded, “Well he does have an 82 percent approval rating according to the different pollsters. “ The reason I'm putting these clips in is so that you can actually hear how Trump is using his chart. And so when he describes something as though it's fact when in actuality it isn't a fact. Nina Bolivia, a political science researcher from Moscow University explains the reality of Putin’s popularity. “Where do these 84 percent really exist? I put up that question and the mystery is a key word, because the regime creates the numbers, which all authoritarian regimes do. They try to show to the world that they are supported by people. I want to prove that there are no 84 percent majority support Putin.” Trump’s chart shows he loves a good fight, and leading up to his presidency, he was sued over thirty six hundred times, over the course of 30 years. (USA today, 2016) That is one lawsuit every other day for 30 years. You have to ask yourself why and how is it, that the only way you can come to some agreement or work something out is to get sued? Remember the planet Mars rules lawsuits in his chart and it's on his ascendant, which is how he presents his personality to the world. Fighting doesn't wear him out at all, it just fuels his energy to fight more and try to get his way. The big irony is that as the elected President, he took an oath to uphold the laws, not ignore them. In order to learn more about how Trump is impacting America, we need to understand America's chart. America's birthdate is July 4th 1776. America is a Cancer country, She’s the motherland blessed with a lot of resources of our own, and a lot that are shared with others. This is indicated with America’s Sun and Mercury in the 8th house. Another key quality described in America’s chart is that we have been tasked with being the pillar of good ideas that stand for something in the world. The planet Saturn is about structure and authority and in the sign of Libra in the 10th house, means that justice, fairness, and a certain objectivity is something that we strive for and act as an example. Our relationships with allies are not always smooth, but there is a sense that there is some security and good intentions behind the relationships. America’s role in standing for something, actually has served as an anchor to help guide and be a rudder for our relationships in the world. When we go back to Donald Trump, how does his chart affect America? Well you might have guessed that his abrupt unpredictable reactive personality probably doesn't work well, and it doesn't. Trump’s Sun and Uranus sit in America’s seventh house which describes how we interact in our partnerships, in his case he is unpredictable and more interested in his own position. This is further complicated by the square his planets make with America’s Neptune in the 9th house which represents foreign land, foreign people, and international agreements. Whenever Neptune is involved the potential for idealism, false hopes or deception is high. He might think he knows where he is in these agreements with foreign countries, but he doesn't understand the bigger picture. He might be hopeful that certain things are going to work out a certain way for him, but it is more likely they won’t. In this 60 Minutes interview, Leslie Stahl asks questions, and as you hear Donald Trump talking, there's just something that sits strange. “Do you agree that Vladimir Putin is involved in assassinations. In poisonings?” Donald Trump responds, “Probably.” Leslie Stahl, “Probably?” Trump continues, “I mean probably, but I rely on them, it’s not in our culture.” Leslie Stahl continues, “ Why not? They shouldn't do it. This is a terrible thing. They shouldn’t do it. Do you believe that the Russians interfered in the 2016 campaign election?” Trump answers, “They meddled but I think China meddled, too.” Stahl reacts, “But why don't you tell me, the Russians mettled?” Trump again, “Because I think China mettled also.” This is the way that Donald Trump is processing America. He seems confused or is just more aligned with what he believes to be true, even though the former speaker of the House Paul Ryan said this, “ Vladimir Putin does not share our interests. Vladimir Putin does not share our values. We just conducted a yearlong investigation into Russia's interference in our elections. They did interfere our elections. It's really clear there should be no doubt about that. “ Paul Ryan is part of the GOP so this isn't the Democrats going after Trump. Trump’s astrology chart impacts America’s chart in a few different ways. Trump's Moon connects with the public's emotional identity. His bombastic and reactive way of expressing his feelings confuses our allies because his reactions are based on the energy he feels in the moment. His planets stir up a cloud of chaos in the part of America's chart that describes what we stand for as a country philosophically, and how we uphold the law is the ninth house. This part of America's chart, also has to do with America's search for the truth and foreign relationships. Unfortunately with Trump's big personality and his connection to the 9th house (which also connects to publicity), it opens the door for him to go on an American rebranding campaign. This is particularly mystifying to our allies, and possibly even connects to our enemies. Our intelligence agencies have been sounding all the alarms, on more than election interference. Former CIA Senior Intelligence Officer, Steve Hall expressed his concerns on CNN to Anderson Cooper. “You know before the Helsinki summit, I was not prepared to go to the darkest corner in the room, and say there is compromising information on Donald Trump. But then after I saw him together with Vladimir Putin and I saw Donald Trump treat him in a fashion that is just inexplicable. It made no sense. It's not as though Donald Trump has any problem being tough with people. The question is why. Why not be tough with a guy like Vladimir Putin. The only explanation that I can have is, is that he is concerned that the compromising information that that Putin has on him will get out.” The last thing that I want to talk about as it relates to Trump's chart and America, is that where he's most sensitive, he's actually in the public eye. He's not really in control of how everybody sees him and that's where he feels most vulnerable. This might be why he’s susceptible to flattery from people that are not our allies. If they speak to this wound that he has, that is very dangerous. If he feels threatened, his rebel rouser personality shows up and in America's chart. That part of him starts fights with our allies and it agitates our enemies. He deals with his own pain and insecurity, by stirring up and activating conflicts and other people If people don't know how he's going to respond or what he's going to say or how he's going to react they aren

05: Who is Mark Zuckerberg?
Who is Mark Zuckerberg CEO Facebook as a person, and what does it mean about Facebook’s future as the largest social media platform in the world? In this episode you will get insights into Zuckerberg’s personality as a creator, leader, and influencer. How does Mark Zuckerberg’s astrological chart connect to the “business chart” of Facebook. How is he helping and where is he going wrong? Find out on this episode of Histrology. Show Highlights: Zuckerberg’s astrological chart provides interesting insights into his personality. He's a Taurus with a lot of Scorpio energy, he doesn't change course without a reason that makes sense to him. His mercury trines neptune and that makes it very easy for him to keep his motivations, ideas, and positions unclear to others. In addition to exploring who he is, as the decision maker at Facebook, the largest social media platform in the world he has an incredible amount of power. How he sees his role, his personal motivations, and his relationship to Facebook as a business entity revealed some interesting things about the company's purpose, potential, and future. One of the big issues that Mark Zuckerberg has been getting alot of pressure about, is whether Facebook is a technology or a publishing company. He has one answer and the Business Chart for Facebook when it went public reveals something else. This issue also sets up more challenges for Zuckerberg because his position on "what Facebook is" sets the wheel of fate in motion for Zuckerberg's accountability as it relates to privacy issues, free speech, ethics and technology, as well as open up newer positive ways that social media could benefit the world. In the future, Zuckerberg's path does not appear to get smoother as it relates to truth and consequences. By looking at Mark Zuckerberg's astrological chart and the Business chart of Facebook, when it went public, it illustrates the value of understanding your own potential as a leader, and how your gifts, when applied consciously can make a positive impact. We each can choose to use our abilities to make a positive impact. Links: Email Wendy: Wendy@histrology.net Twitter: @histrology Website: https://www.wendyhornung.com/book-online

04: Robert Mueller, William Barr and America
Robert Mueller and William Barr were both hired to uphold the law and serve the American people, but do they? Who are they and what motivates them? A look at their Astrological chart uncovers how these two historical figures align with the foundational values of our country. Robert Mueller and William Barr were both hired to uphold the law and serve the American people, but do they? Who are they and what motivates them? A look at their Astrological chart uncovers how these two historical figures align with the foundational values of our country. I begin with William Barr. William Barr is a Gemini. His birthday is May 23rd 1950. He was born in New York City. I don't have a birth time for him but we can get a pretty good idea about how he operates. William Barr's chart emphasizes the theme of power in his own life and as he wields it in the name of justice. He loves wielding power and he is influenced by those who have it. His personal journey and evolution has a very interesting connection to the Astrological Chart of America as a country. The challenge and the big lessons in his chart is actually playing out right now. What does he actually stand for is the question that history will explain in the future? What is Robert Mueller here to do? Robert Muller was born August 7th 1944 in New York City New York. He is a Leo when he was born the Sun and Pluto were together (Conjunct) which gives him an incredible heart for life and an ability to deal with crises. He has the sun, pluto and venus in Leo. He has a couple of planets Mercury, the mind in Virgo, so when he thinks about things he's very analytical. HIs mercury is in Virgo giving him a really bright analytical mind that can handle and organize a lot of information. The planet Uranus in Gemini makes aspects that show he has an open and thorough mind. I know this sounds dramatic but Mueller's Pluto and Saturn are moving towards his South node which has to do with his life purpose connecting to the past and America. Looking at Mueller's chart with America's chart, made me feel and see as a citizen, that I need to read the "Mueller Report" and do my part to serve the country. I could feel myself being led by him. Robert Mueller’s destiny is very connected to America. The thing about Robert Mueller's chart and that sun conjunct Pluto is that, it is in the eighth house of America which is where confrontations happen. It's also the house of resources, taxes, business agreements, shared resources, financing banking. Robert Mueller's chart shines a light on the hidden deals in America's chart. When I look at his chart, part of what he's doing for America is shining the light on what is wrong and on what is possible. We're all responsible, meaning, that we need to hold our public officials that are working for us to be accountable, too. William Barr is the attorney general for the United States, technically he works for you and me. When I look at William Barr's chart with America's, it's not very good. He is definitely focused on what he can get out of this situation. There are some other forces at work that are not above board, and there are many indicators in the chart that he is not interested in upholding the values of America. His chart make things confusing with his Neptune in America's ninth house, which has to do with upholding laws. Barr's chart with America also creates tension in the seventh house which represents America's allies and open enemies. Barr's Uranus sits in the seventh house of America’s chart showing he is unpredictable in terms of how he makes and honors agreements. When I look at Muller and Barr's charts, what I see is that Muller is trustworthy and Barr is not trustworthy. Mueller has a really important role in history and he's provided a lot of information for us. He's modeling for you and me to hold all our public officials accountable. I didn't create this podcast with the intent of advocating that everybody contact their representatives and their Senators but when I looked at these charts, I thought oh my gosh we all should do our part and take action. We at the very least, should read Robert Mueller's report. I just wanted to give you an overview and I could go on for hours.

02: Have We Been Here Before? Women's Rights & Black Lives Matter
What does Neptune mean? And what does it mean when Neptune enters Pisces again? An overview of the history as it relates to current times. The Women’s Suffrage and Abolitionist movements that lead into the American Civil War correspond to the planetary cycle of Neptune in Pisces from 1848-1863. When Neptune enters Pisces 163 years later in 2011-2026, the Black Lives Matter and the Me Too movements rise up to be heard across social media and in demonstrations around the country. The political polarization across America is palpable once again. The conditions that lead to the American Civil War seem strangely familiar when we go back to when the Women’s movement began. What was the Declaration of Sentiments about? Women took the ideas in the Declaration of Independence and made it known they were entitled to the same rights as men. The movement began as a joint effort with the Abolitionists who wanted to free slaves. They also were seeking equal rights. However, they did not stay working together as the challenges grew. Staying focused on the benefits of all gave way to the needs of individuals. Neptune and Pisces are connected to water, emotions, and no boundaries. The lesson is one of empathy and compassion. As the cycle repeats, it is our chance as a collective group to review how far we have come in treating each other as equals. We have had over 163 years to grow. Are women treated as equals? Are they paid the same for equal work? Are they protected from exploitation, harm, and abuse by our system? Does the legal system provide a fair and just process? The same exact questions can be asked as it relates to the challenges the black community face today, as well. Further, the diversity challenges of our world with gender and immigration take the Neptune in Pisces cycle to a whole new level. What did we get right? What has not worked so far, and what will we do about it? No one escapes the issue, whether you are political or not. We all impact each other and the answer is “empowerment through empathy.” This planetary cycle symbolizes water, creation, and idealism. On the other hand it can be avoidance and tribalism. Ironically, we all desire to belong, and when the feeling is so strong and the fear is so vivid, our emotions can drive us to exclude others for irrational reasons. This is dangerous. History has shown us this as the pains of the Civil War still exist today. We have the opportunity in this cycle to be flexible and fluid. Be open to what we do not fully understand and try to comprehend the suffering of others. It is no accident, that these themes are in full play in our world today with Neptune in Pisces, almost 163 years later. How will you contribute compassion? What is Neptune in Pisces teaching you in your own chart? Links: Contact Wendy: What's Happening in Your Chart? Schedule a Session. Wendy@histrology.net Twitter: @Histrology

01: Pluto in Capricorn: The Revolution of Power
It's a fascinating time right now because we are in a cycle that correlates with the American Revolution. I'm not kidding. It's true. In 1776, when our forefathers broke away from England, they wrote the Declaration of Independence. It was because they were tired of the abuse of power. They did not like how they were being governed. There was no accountability towards the King. Of course it's much more complicated than that but that is the theme. The story astrologically, that is the subtext of that, whether you believe it's true or not, is that the planet Pluto, which is the planet of power. The use of power money was in the sign of Capricorn, which is the sign of government institutions, banking and systems. So those two together Pluto in Capricorn indicate that the government is supposed to be serving the people in a constructive way. And when things are not working the way they're supposed to be working. Pluto slowly erodes at them, hence a revolution. So let's fast forward to the present times the planet Pluto is again in the sign of Capricorn. So as we look at the current circumstances of government in power, there are definitely a lot of struggles going on. The actual system itself is being tested right now. So one of the things about looking at history and personal processes is that when cycles come back around, they don't look exactly the same. But it's taking the themes that existed earlier and allowing all of us to work at them in a different way, hopefully in a more positive way where we are evolving as a group. Now, how does this relate to people individually? Well, when we think about how the millennials are the most anxious group. What makes people feel anxious? When people don't feel like they're in control. The planet Pluto is about power which is about so in our current world. There are so many, many things going on that have to do with power, control, their safety in their own environments, guns, the accessibility how the judicial system works, how it doesn't work, the way we are taxed, the accountability for those things.
