Despite denials from the White House, the news broadcasts are all reporting a rumor that Rex Tillerson will in the near future be replaced as U.S. Secretary of State. I heard such a report at 8:07 AM and wondered whether the rumor was true, so I cast a chart for the time I heard the news and decided to look up Lilly’s rules for its interpretation. Here is the “horary” chart (technically, it is an event chart being interpreted as a horary):
Lilly says to check the following factors to decide whether a rumor is true or not (CA 193-194):
- Is L1 (Lord of the 1st) or the Moon in an angle? NO in this chart, neither Jupiter (L1) nor Moon are angular. (L1 or Moon in an angle imply truth.)
- Is the dispositor of the Moon in an angle and a fixed sign? NO in this chart. (Dispositor of Luna in an angle or fixed sign implies truth.)
- Is L1, Moon or Moon’s dispositor in a succedent house and fixed sign? YES: Jupiter (L1) lies in Scorpio in the 11th, and the Moon lies in Taurus in the 5th. Jupiter also rules the 3rd house of rumors. (L1, Moon or dispositor of Moon in a succedent house or fixed sign implies truth.)
- Is L1, Moon or Moon’s dispositor in sextile or trine with Jupiter, Venus or the Sun? NO in this chart. (L1, Moon or dispositor of Moon sexitle or trine Jupiter, Venus or Sun implies truth.)
- However, if L1 is afflicted by Mars or Saturn, or in a cadent house, then the rumor is false. NO in this chart; L1 (Jupiter) is not afflicted by Mars or Saturn or in a cadent house.
- All four angles of the chart in fixed signs is supporting evidence of the truth of the rumor. NO in this chart, the angles are not fixed.
By criterion #3 it appears that the rumor is true, especially because Jupiter, which rules both the Ascendant and the 3rd house of rumors lies in fixed Scorpio in the succedent 11th house. The Moon, which rejoices in the 3rd house of rumors, lies in fixed Taurus on the cusp of the cadent 5th house. Rex Tillerson will resign in the not too distant future, at least according the the criteria set forth in Lilly’s Christian Astrology. Let’s see what happens in reality.
