The big news this week in the presidential campaign has been Hillary Clinton’s wobble at the 9-11 ceremony and the revelation of her diagnosis of pneumonia. According to news reports:
“Clinton, who was here and only about 20 feet away from Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump, was listening along with Trump to the reading of the names lost in the terror attacks on this tragic day 15 years ago. Trump appeared at the ceremony around 8:20 a.m. receiving applause when he arrived, while Clinton arrived shortly before the first bell rang at 8:46 a.m. which is a citywide moment of silence in observance of time the first plane struck the North Tower. Shortly before 9:37 a.m.–the time marked for a moment of silence in observance of the flight that struck the Pentagon down just outside Washington, D.C.–Clinton was seen leaving the ceremony with her press corps in tow. Clinton was leaving through a back entrance, quietly.”
Here are Hillary’s transits for the day:
The non-lunar aspects are all favorable, so she should weather this controversy without too much difficulty. The Moon, however, began the day with a square to Neptune in her 12th Whole Sign house and went on to quincunx Mars (ruler of her 6th of illness) and Pluto in the 10th Whole Sign house of career and public reputation. The Moon ended with a sextile to Venus in the afternoon when she was seen leaving her daughter’s Manhattan apartment in good spirits and apparently reasonably healthy. Here is her chart with Whole Sign houses:
Since taking Chris Brennan’s course on Hellenistic astrology, I’ve been experimenting a lot with zodiacal releasing from the Lot of Spirit. Here is the printout from Solar Fire for Hillary’s ZR in this time period:
On Level 3 she is going though a Cancer period (27 July 2016 – 28 September 2016). Cancer is the derived 4th house of her part of Fortune, so it is an important career time. On September 9th she entered a “loosing of the bond” in Capricorn on Level 4, which lasts until September 15, 2016. During these seven days her Level 4 time lord is Saturn (ruler of Capricorn). Saturn occupies her 10th Whole Sign house of career where it conjoins Pluto and Mars, so the emphasis should be on professional matters, public reputation, and the significations of Mars in her chart. Mars is ruler of her 6th of illness and 1st of the body’s vitality, and is also the out-of-sect malefic thus capable of signifying significant difficulties and health issues coming to public view.
