Political Predictions late 2017 and early 2018
First written 5 June 2017 Updated 18 October 2017
There’s trouble on the way, and the stars will collide for President Trump and his White House cabinet. It’s going to be a roller coaster ride according to my predictions for the remaining 6 months of 2017.
The Total Solar Eclipse which fell on August 21, 2017, in 28 degrees Leo is being called the Great American Eclipse for a good reason. This particular Astrological Eclipse was seen across the United States and fell directly in the Midheaven in Houston, Texas. When we look at how a Solar Eclipse is going to manifest, we usually link it to the geographical area where it will be most visible, so in this case, it is the USA that is going to feel the full force of this fiery celestial occurrence.
We have seen this type of Solar Eclipse (called the Saros Series) before as they come every 18.5 years, so we had one in 1999, 1981, 1963, 1945, 1927, and 1909, etc. Looking back in time helps us to see the patterns that come with the Saros Series, bearing in mind that a Solar Eclipse casts a shadow in both directions.
On February 26, 1998, we saw a Solar Eclipse in the Saros Series which led up to the impeachment of Bill Clinton in December 1998. In the lead up to the Solar Eclipse in 1981 which happened in July, we had the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan in March. In 1963 we had the assassination of JFK in November following the Solar Eclipse in July. In 1945 we saw the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan in August, directly following the Solar Eclipse in July.
So, as we can see by looking at the past, the shadow periods before or after a Solar Eclipse in the Saros Series has brought with them impeachment, assassination attempts, and atomic warfare. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Eclipses also bring rash decisions, false information, and health problems. This one also comes with a side helping of anger and those affected will be argumentative, violent, and seem overly stressed. Sound like anyone we know? Yup…here at Cohen Astrology, I predicted at the beginning of the year that August was a month to watch out for, and now I are back with a closer look at all those in the White House and how this Eclipse will affect them directly.
Starting with the President of the United States himself, Donald Trump:
Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946, which makes him a two-faced Gemini., Those born under the zodiac sign of the Twins are good at talking, as Gemini rules communication, but as an Air sign, this can sometimes be nothing more than empty words. President Trump’s Astrology chart tells me that he has a lot going on under the surface.
President Trump has Mars and Pluto in his 12th House which is all about hidden secrets, and as Mars is the Planet of War, this is all linked to repressed anger just waiting to burst to the surface. August is when the crap hits the fan, so to speak,and he is the one who feels the full force of this Solar Eclipse. Impeachment, maybe. It’s also amazing to see how his Astrology chart is so closely linked to James Comey, like two sides of the same coin.
Vice President, Mike Pence:
Mike Pence was born on June 7, 1959. Another Gemini. Just what we need in the White House. What makes it even worse in Pence’s chart is that he has both the Sun and Mercury in Gemini. Gemini and Mercury rule communication so with this planetary set up we can’t believe a word coming out of his mouth. The Solar Eclipse brings change for Vice-President Pence, but it ‘s hard to see if this means he will be ousted from power.I lean toward a yes,but with chatty Mercury and the Sun in Gemini, he may be one of the few people who can talk his way out of getting fired or removed from office when everything hits the fan in August. Our Astrology-Psychic prediction is Vice-President Pence is secretly hoping that President Trump will resign and he can steer the White House ship to calmer waters.
First Lady, Melania Trump:
Melania was born on April 26, 1970, which makes her a Taurus. She fits the description of Taurus perfectly which is the zodiac sign of beauty and money. Do I need to explain it any more than that? Not only is she a Taurus Sun sign but she also has Venus, Mercury, and Saturn in Taurus, so this is a pretty Bull-heavy chart. It’s about wealth, assets, and financial security for Melania. She’s not going to be particularly heavily affected by the August Solar Eclipse which means she is going to keep her wealth and carry on as usual. My Astrology prediction is Melania will stand by her man President Trump.
Ivanka was born on October 30, 1981, which makes her a Scorpio., This is a little surprising as Scorpio is quite a dark sign. This does, however, fit with her slightly unknowable and polished exterior, as she is challenging to read when she does interviews or speaks in public. It’s all about what is under the surface with Ivanka, and all the things we can’t see which she keeps hidden from view. Of all the people close to Trump she doesn’t seem to be closely affected by the Solar Eclipse so we can assume that she just goes back to her life in New York when things get rough and everyone else takes the major fall. My Astrology prediction for 2017 & 2018 is Ivanka Trump will take the next two years off to focus on being a mom. As she mentioned in a recent interview, she was shocked by the viciousness of politics in Washington. She better buckle up, the ride is going to get more bumpy for her husband and father.
Kushner was born on January 10, 1981, and he has a Capricorn Sun sign. Figures! Capricorn is the driven Mountain Goat, clawing their way to the top of the pyramid and pushed by ambition. Interestingly he has Pluto conjunct the Sun in his chart, and this points to a big transformation coming up in August. Something will trigger around that time, and it will be like a storm rolling through town. Nothing will be the same for him after August, so I predict some kind, of scandal which means he will never get his old life back. Hmm, father like son, will he spend time in prison just like dear old dad? My prediction for Kushner in 2017 & 2018 is he will take a plea deal to avoid jail time.
Bannon was born on November 27, 1953, and he has a sting in his tail. He has a planetary pile-up in Scorpio as Venus, Mercury, and Saturn is all in the sign of the Scorpion. There are hidden astrological depths here that I don’t know about and he’s holding on to some pretty big secrets. He also has his Moon conjunct Pluto which is more of the same. Pluto is the Lord of the Underworld and when it’s conjunct the Moon there is always trouble brewing beneath the surface. The August Solar Eclipse is going to hit this Moon-Pluto conjunction, and it signals a significant loss. This can manifest in different ways, such as getting ousted from the White House or losing someone close to him like part of his team. Whatever it is it will be emotional and messy. My Astrology prediction for 2017 & 2018 is Bannon will go back to Breitbart and write a tell-all book.
Kellyanne Conway is technically an Aquarius as she was born on January 20, 1967, although she is right on the cusp of Capricorn/Aquarius. Honestly, she seems far more of an ambitious Capricorn than a humanitarian Aquarius. The Eclipse is going to hit Venus in her chart which is about appearances, so this makes it seem like people are going to look at her differently. Perhaps we get some more information on the things she has been hiding? The Eclipse does appear to impact her, but it seems more like she may just lose her job when the Trump administration crumbles and then go off and do something else. My Astrology prediction for 2017 & 2018 is she will leave the White House and get her own show on one of the major TV news networks.
Stephen Miller was born on August 23, 1985. Like Kellyanne he is on the cusp between the zodiac signs of Leo and Virgo. His astrological chart shows he has Pluto and Saturn in Scorpio which points to repressed emotions just waiting to come to the surface. He also has Mars in Leo who is going to be hit by the Solar Eclipse, and this suggests some rapid burn out. Maybe he will resign when the going gets tough or have to take time off due to exhaustion.
Press Secretary, Sean Spicer was born on September 23, 1971. Depending on his birth time his is on the cusp of zodiac signs Virgo and Libra. From his chart, he is not as power hungry as many of the other characters in the President Trump administration although his Nodes are going to get hit by the Eclipse in Leo and Aquarius. Whatever happens to Spicer happens quickly. There is a flash in August, and then it’s gone. Maybe he gets fired or quits, and that will be the last we hear of him.
For others, the Solar Eclipse is just the start of a series of setbacks, but Sean Spicer gets off quite lightly. This makes sense as he has never been implicated in anything major, he’s just there to talk the talk to the press for President Trump. My prediction for 2017 & 2018 is he will leave the White House and go back to working behind the scenes. Sad, we will miss Melissa McCarthy’s hilarious SNL skits.
Attorney General, Jeff Sessions was born on December 24, 1946, so he’s another Capricorn. Not only is his Sun in the sign of the Goat but so are his Moon and Mars. He loves power and will do anything to hold on to it. The Eclipse will target his Saturn which is a stern sign and is all about paying your dues. It is the Taskmaster of all the planets and Sessions is going to feel the full force of the law at this time. By 2018 it looks very doubtful, he will still be in politics. My Astrology prediction is he will retire in late 2017 or early 2018.
I’ve saved the best for last which is former FBI Director, James Comey who was born on December 14, 1960. He’s a Sagittarius, and his Astrology chart shows that Saturn will be stationed in his Sun during the time of the Solar Eclipse in August. This means that he will be in the spotlight right around that time. One of the strangest things about his Astrology chart is that his Sun is opposite Gemini which is where President Trump’s Sun is stationed. It’s like two men standing on opposite sides of the boardroom table and staring each other down. My Astrology prediction for James Comey in 2017 & 2018 is a major book deal announcement and perhaps a run for politics in 2020.
In the end, during the Solar Eclipse in August the focus will be on appointed Special Prosecutor. Robert Mueller was born on August 7, 1944. He’s a Leo, and his Astrology chart will be fueled by the wheels of justice and Saturn in Sagittarius pushing him forward to reveal the truth about whether or not President Trump and his campaign colluded with Russia to interfere in the USA Election. By August, he will have enough ammunition to take a few shots at President Trump’s inner circle, and we can expect a few indictments to be handed out 3 to 6 months after the Solar Eclipse, with the first indictments around 1 November 2017.
The Solar Eclipse is going to shake everything up, and a Solar Eclipse usually means the start of something new. Maybe it’s about impeachment proceedings or a new government forming with different players, but whatever it is there will be no going back from this point. Solar Eclipses can be traumatic periods because they transform everything around us and force a change to happen, but usually, it is for the best in the long run.
Trouble will be coming in August, but it will ultimately lead to a better future for everyone down the road. Watch this space for more Astrology & Psychic predictions for 2017 & 2018.
UPDATE October 18th: Well my Astrology predictions are coming to fruition on a fast and furious scale. Back in June, 2017 as I predicted Spicer, Priebus, and now Bannon have been ousted from the White House. Who else will face the firing squad. The Eclipse was on August 21st and it was a major event..
Kushner’s financier was just arrested in Israel for money laundering and we can expect a few indictments handed down in the next several weeks from today 18 October 2017.Will Trump survive all this chaos and drama? I will be shocked if he makes it to 3 January 2018 Stay tuned.Zayin Cohen.
