Here’s the chart for the second presidential debate, tonight in Monsantoville: St Louis, MO. The Moon will be void of course (v/c, meaning no longer making aspects to major planets while in its current sign). It will also be opposite Vesta, however, which modifies usual thoughts on Moon v/c.
Moon v/c has two main effects: one is that we can’t predict what will happen (it may be bigger or smaller than expected), and the second is that what happens may drop down the memory hole.
These are the two distinct effects that I’ve seen from the void Moon: things go away, or they blow up unexpectedly huge.
If that happens, it will be in the spirit of Vesta: of holding space, of service, and of bringing to the surface some core elements of sexual shame.
Bringing this into human terms, what we are seeing is a catharsis of shame in the events of this weekend; and a man who has been on top of the world, in his “Tower,” has been struck by lightning.
Vesta is the quality of holding space for this whole process. There is a container. This has been the missing thing: containment, which implies context. Vesta is all about the organizing principle; and where she’s present, you can be sure that there is one.
The approaching Mars-Pluto conjunction in this chart is ominous. Along with the approaching Full Moon in Aries — the most potent lunation of the Uranus-Eris era, conjunct that point — describes some other form of total disruption.
There’s likely to be a continuing, mounting wave of public outrage, which feels like enlightenment, and relief that the gaslighting is finally coming to an end, at least from one point of view. That would be Trump’s form of gaslighting (particularly around women and racial minorities). Now, the question is: what of Hillary Clinton’s? Will there be some blow-off of pressure over the next few weeks, particularly as the Aries Full Moon happens?
In any event, from this chart I see Clinton emerging with the image of public advocate and fighter for the just cause (deserved or not). Notice Venus conjunct Juno in Scorpio, with Taurus rising.
Here are three related articles, on Juno and the 2012 phenomenon, which are my “final report” on 12/21/12:
A few years ago I pulled together an e-book including all of my writing leading up to 2012. This includes astrology, social commentary and other diary-like writing. The book is called Light Bridge: The 25-Year Span, and you may access it in this free PDF.
