February 18

DOUGLAS HIGH SCHOOL SHOOTING

On February 14 2018, Mars was moving through Sagittarius. This time it was bound for the Ascendant of the horoscope of the Declaration of Independence. And when combative Mars, the planet of weapons and war, lands on the perceptual filter of the nation, such issues take precedence. A Valentine's Day massacre would unfold – with no mention of Al Capone.

Instead, the familiar profile of an angry young white male, (always a male) with a military assault weapon. Another potential member of the mythical well armed militia. At 14.19 hours on February, he arrives at Douglas High in Parkland, Florida. At 14.21 he begins a killing spree claiming seventeen students lives.

School massacres are a feature of 21st century life in the US, where the gun is a curious object of adoration – and campuses have rapidly become killing grounds. The usual aftermath is hopes and prayers, guns don't kill people and let's not politicise the tragedy. Yet killing is exactly what military assault weapons are designed to do.

Money talks and Congress are proof of corruption. When Eisenhower warned of a military industrial complex infiltrating all levels of government, he was talking more than just the Pentagon. But the tide of public opinion is building to tsunami levels, as the February Solar Eclipse hits the US Moon of public feeling and squares the Sun position of the birth of the National Rifle Association.

This powerful lobby group, that holds American lives in it's rifle scopes, began on November 17 1871 in Fairfax, Virginia. They're now having a Saturn return – where reality hits hard. They were initiated with Mars and Saturn together in Capricorn. Potentially they could exercise gun (Mars) control (Saturn) through government (Capricorn) if they tried.

But the NRA have elected to maximise profit for weapons manufacturers. They want more guns in schools. The NRA's progressing birth Sun is moving through a conjunction with Neptune. That may explain the delay and deceit. And it's this kind of advertising that they quickly eliminated from their social network in the wake of the Valentine's Day massacre.


ECLIPSING SAFETY MEASURES

At 11.02 February 15 2017, the US Senate rescinded restrictions designed to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill. The Sun returned to 27 Aquarius for this February 15 Solar Eclipse. The Solar Eclipse opposed Donald Trump's Mars. It was Trump and the Republicans who killed off that gun control legislation.

When a Solar Eclipse opposes your Mars, it brings aggressive opposition. And this is a Mars issue. It's the planet of weaponry and war. Schools in the USA are rapidly becoming war zones. True to his sponsors, Trump took particular precaution not to mention the word 'gun' in his national address. He immediately brought up mental illness. A year too late.

At 15.33 hours February 15 – right on the Solar Eclipse – an angry mother, her child now a victim of this insanity, screamed to the president for action. Will he act to prevent further school shootings? Or will he propose more armed guards turning US educational institutions into fortresses resembling a Baghdad Green Zone. And generate even more finance for the weapons industry.

The Florida gunman was wearing a 'Let's make America Great Again' cap. Trump is feeling the effects of this eclipse, just as he felt the August one and the events of Charlottesville. The President is again caught in the eye of the storm and this one doesn't have a surname of Daniels. It's how eclipses work.

BARNABY JOYCE ECLIPSED

A fellow student of astrology and FAA member, wrote to me the Australian Deputy Prime Minister's, Barnaby Joyce's, birth details, of 04.20 am April 17 1967 at Tamworth, NSW. The source was claimed to be 'from the horse's mouth', Joyce mentioning the details on regional television when interviewed about the Australian parliamentary citizenship fiasco.

The Deputy PM, has been all over the news over the past six months. First through his intransigence to step aside, while the High Court adjudicated on his eligibility as a member of parliament. Joyce was subsequently found ineligible and forced to re-contest his seat of New England, which he easily retained. But there were details his electorate didn't know.

Joyce is back in the headlines following revelations of an extra marital affair rich led to the breakdown of his marriage following his victory. Now it has become public that he was conducting an affair with an ex-staffer, with the birth of a son expected sometime in April. Barnaby was sworn in as Deputy PM on February 18 2016, close to the recent Solar Eclipse date.

A feature of Joyce's horoscope is a testing T-Square, between his impulsive Aries Sun, unrestrained Jupiter and pugnacious Mars opposing his Sun. It suits his rambunctious approach. He twice worked as a bouncer at a Armidale and then Moree. He enjoys the political bull-pit. But as roller coaster Uranus has joined his Arian birth Sun, his life has gone off the rails.

After an extraordinary criticism from the Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, Joyce is on leave from this Monday as he attends to his personal affairs. Turnbull berated, "Ministers, regardless of whether they are married or single, must not engage in sexual relations with a staff member". Joyce returned fire, fracturing the bonds between the Australian leaders.

WHERE IT IS HEADED

I don't expect that Joyce will return as Deputy Prime Minister. It's not simply unpredictable Uranus that is stirring up his volatile T-Square. It is also Neptune that will transit square to Joyce's Secondary Progressed Sun, impacting early April and into May. Plus there are other current considerations, such as judgemental Saturn squaring both his birth Mercury and Saturn.

In early April the same Saturn will oppose Joyce's progressed Mercury. These kind of transits can produce resignation, detachment, serious reconsiderations and the saying of goodbye. All of which may not be without serious consequences for the Australian Prime Minister. Malcolm Turnbull's swearing in chart, and birth horoscope would both suggest that April-May 2018 presents a critical hurdle to overcome.

On December 31, looking ahead on 2018, I wrote this “Undermining Neptune also enters the mix by late April/May. Turnbull will be under attack and his problem has always been that the predators have usually been members of his own party. Expect either a significant challenge which may unseat him around this period or a present enormous leadership difficulty.” Who would have thought it could be related to his deputy.

SUN JUPITER CYCLE TIMING THE RUSSIA INVESTIGATION

Last week's column covered the turning points in the Mueller Russian investigation, promising a new development coincident with the Sun squaring Jupiter. At 1.30 pm on Friday the 16th, Rod Rosenstein, the Deputy Attorney General for the United States Department of Justice indicted 13 Russians and three Russian entities for their efforts to derail the 2016 US election.

Look to the last week in March for another major development from this investigation. Trump was quick to claim no collusion and Rosenstein looked under pressure to say the same. But he stopped short of fielding further questions and terminated the press appearance.

Aries or Aries Rising weekly horoscope: There can be a clandestine feel regarding new relationships formed during the latter part of February. The union of loving Venus with escapist Neptune manifests in your twelfth house of the hidden, implying secret pleasures or a greater need for privacy during this developmental time. This may also coincide with you taking a well earned break from something after what seems a more people orientated month. To look at your own personal chart, organise a personal and/or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top 

Taurus or Taurus Rising weekly horoscope: The latter part of February seems more suited to the social scene and catching up with old friends or forging fresh alliances. Overall this month may start more privately but as it gathers momentum you'll find you can make the most of it, by putting yourself out there and taking charge where you can. Your ruling planet, convivial Venus, is in an advantageous angle to your sign adding harmony to relationships and friendships, particularly in a party setting or where arts and entertainment are involved. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and/or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Gemini or Gemini Rising weekly horoscope: From the 19th the Sun will reach the apex of your solar chart. It can put you more in the public spotlight and ask questions of you from a career or status based angle. A time to reflect on your worldly role and how you want to play it. On the 22nd and 25th, firstly Venus and then Mercury link up with sensitive Neptune in the same area of public accountability. It's impossible to deny the spiritual factors involved – ambition is not as important as the empathy here. It suits the artists and healers of the world. To look at your own personal chart, organise a Skype and or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Cancer or Cancer Rising weekly horoscope: Your personal relationships are either enhanced, or challenged, by each of you share similar life values. This includes how you view long term security, are willing to share possessions and pool resources together for the common good. A lot obviously depends upon developing and deepening trust, as well as what a partner brings to the table. Not just on the material but emotional level. A rich experience may have nothing to do with money. The dreamy combination of indulgent Venus with escapist Neptune in your travel house can be your ticket to paradise around the 22nd. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Leo or Leo Rising weekly horoscope: Values planet Venus and hazy Neptune join in your house of shared resources, business partnerships, legacies insurance and trading by the 22nd and transactional Mercury will also join the blue gas giant by the 25th. This can represent a time when you are needing to pull resources back your way, perhaps as a result of an earlier loss or simply the feel that money, or resources are slipping through your fingers. A reminder that you are not a constant charity and the well can use some replenishment. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Virgo or Virgo Rising weekly horoscope: From the 19th onward, how you take the actions, words and ideas of others on board is vitally important. If you've been gradually 'perfecting' something this may be a time of final judgement too, or when you feel more confident enough to go public with it. From the 22nd some alliances may have an illusory feel about them. Communicative Mercury is linking to Neptune around the 25th. This is more notable for Virgos born on, or nearby, September 5. It can even introduce a virtual psychic connection. Remember to initially just observe and experience. The crucial decisions can come another time. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Libra or Libra Rising weekly horoscope: Health-wise hedonistic Venus can be lavishing some epicurean temptations around the 22nd. The pleasure planet's hook up with 'little ole wine drinker me' Neptune, on the above date, will be a warning in itself. Sometimes hard to diagnose maladies, mystery viruses or just general lethargy – all Neptune stuff - can be hint to lifestyle choices. Water is the natural cleanser and rest can work wonders. Overall – this can be one of the fun times of 2018. A time to let your hair down and live in the moment – yes. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or Skype consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details. Top

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising weekly horoscope: You should notice a significant shift from the 19th onward, with the Sun's movement into a fellow water sign, along with Mercury and Venus. This tends to remove impedances and expedite matters for you, allowing an easier and natural progression for your plans. Coupled with visionary Jupiter, now firmly entrenched in Scorpio, the end of month is a time of following opportunity. Venus, your solar partnership ruler, is now in your solar house of romance and recreation. A very creative placement that bodes well for any innovative ideas and works that display your artistic talents and ability.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising weekly horoscope: The earlier part of this month has been the ideal opportunity for you to bring yourself up to date on new skill sets, work related studies or refresher courses. The latter portion of the month is seeing a shift toward family and home, with the 22nd open to domestic improvements and entertaining. For the more commercially orientated the final week (around the 25th), may present contracts or leases involved with property or family business. Double check the fine print and learn to read between the lines as illusory Neptune is also at work during these latter days. To look at your own personal chart, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin. Click here for details.  Top

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising weekly horoscope: If you've been feeling tied to a post on progress, life may tend to speed up or introduce a touch more variety from the 19th. It's taking you away from the prior patient building and/or material focus. The final week is excellent for networking, think tanks, floating new ideas and receiving feedback on your fresh ventures. It is also ideal for exploring and learning new skills or further developing a keen interest. This works especially well around media related studies or subjects. Look at your own future prospects astrologically for the years ahead, organize a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin Click here for details. Top

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising weekly horoscope: One of life's lessons is that dreams of avarice, let run wild, can lead to nightmares of debt. Toward the end of February, notably on the 22nd and 25th, first Venus and then Mercury trigger dreamy Neptune in your the financial sector of your solar chart. Neptune is not the most practical fiscal advisor to have around, so just be a little cautious around any big ticket items around those dates. Your sense of charity is enhanced, and there is more to life than dollars and cents. Just ensure they do go to the right people though. To discuss your own future prospects astrologically for 2018, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed. Click here for details. Top

Pisces or Pisces Rising weekly horoscope: Voluptuous Venus is moving through impressionable Pisces and links up with your modernist ruler, Neptune, from the 22nd. Your sense of romantic escapism is naturally enhanced by this poetic combo. Time for you to indulge your own pleasurable fantasy or escapist's paradise. It may be impossible to resist, especially if your birthday falls on or by March 5. Creative pursuits, music and entertainment empower the more artistically inclined. Let your imagination lead the way during this magical time. To look at your own personal horoscope, organise a phone or personal consultation with Ed Tamplin click here for details. Top
