My intuition about the Kavanaugh appointment was the Republicans were going to ram him through no matter what and they did. I was surprised to see during the initial period they were trying to do it, so many difficult aspects going on in Kavanaugh’s solar chart. A solar chart is pretty accurate, not as accurate as the right time of birth would be, but it told me a lot about what was going to happen for the next few weeks. Transiting Jupiter was in Scorpio exactly conjunct Kavanaugh’s natal Neptune in Scorpio – expansion of loss, Neptune in Scorpio loss of power, loss through sexuality – (side note this is my generation and while we were at the peak of sexual activity the AIDS epidemic was taking young lives. In my generation sleeping with the wrong person could be a death sentence. How much more Neptune in Scorpio could that be?) Anyway back to Kavanaugh while he had a transiting Grand Earth Trine at the time with Pluto at 18 Capricorn trining his Uranus/Pluto in Virgo and Taurus in Jupiter. Saturn was making an opposition to his Moon (Maybe since we don’t have his exact time of birth). Jupiter was starting to conjunct his natal Neptune and transiting Neptune was making an opposition to his natal Uranus/Pluto. So as the week progressed Jupiter was conjunct the natal Neptune and things got much worse for him. Because everything is so mixed in terms of positive and negative transits – the timing of the vote was extremely important. If a vote had been taken then, he would have lost. But this it the thing about transits – the timing is everything. The question now remains – how can a man with this sort of questionable morality and swirling allegations of lying, sexual misconduct and gambling sail through a long term career on the Supreme Court. Although there haven’t ever been any Supreme Court justices who have been impeached, the remedy does exist. Let’s not forget the level of crazy he exhibited at the hearing or the fact that 2400 law professors spoke out against his confirmation. The partisanship he exhibited during the hearing was reiterated the other night when he only thanked the Republican Senators who voted yes instead of the normal graciousness of thanking the entire body.
Here’s the date he was voted in and sworn in as well. We can see that Jupiter was exactly conjunct his solar 10th house cusp. This is what we would expect to see for such a major honor. It does however exactly square his Sun – so the internal pressure he’s under will be a theme to his “service.” Jupiter which had been conjunct his natal Neptune earlier and opposing his natal Jupiter is now significantly waning – this is an important point – waning aspects should be read with caution as they indicate energy that is exiting the stage. The biggie here is transiting Neptune (1st house) at 14 degrees in Pisces directly opposed his natal Uranus/Pluto mid-point in the 7th. This is the thing that makes me think, built into his confirmation are the seeds of the loss of this job and even potential legal trouble.
So here are some future periods, just to show how the transits move over Kavanaugh’s solar chart coming up.
By December the Grand earth trine by transiting Pluto is waning and Jupiter has moved into Sagittarius. Transiting Neptune in Pisces is exactly opposite natal Uranus in Virgo – something new breaking open regarding Kavanaugh – something unexpected. Jupiter is still in the 10th sextiling natal Venus and Mercury so he will likely still be protected and OK but another fracture in his credibility will likely come out.
By January we see Jupiter/Venus applying pressure to that transiting Neptune in Pisces opposing his Uranus/Pluto in the 7th. They form a T-Square so things heat up but at the same time he is building power transiting Pluto is joined by Mercury to trine his natal Mars in Virgo in the 8th – so he is protected by the powerful despite pressure building and surprising information coming out.
I don’t think we’ve heard the last of Kavanaugh and trouble with him that could lead to his loss of position on the high court. As things evolve I will come back to this.
