Unless you’ve been living under a rock (like the slithery creature who gave birth to Matt Gaetz), you already know that the U.S. House of Representatives will begin holding formal impeachment hearings tomorrow against President Donald J. Trump. While this hasn’t happened quickly enough for a lot of people who would be delighted to see the wannabe emperor removed from office, the astrological timing couldn’t be better.
On December 2, Jupiter moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn, leaving the sign of rampant, unbridled idealism over which it rules, and entering the part of the zodiac associated with law, order and institutions. We can all expect a big shift in the tone of the proceedings around that time. Hopefully, that means the tribalism that has defined American politics for a while now will give way to a more pragmatic way of thinking. Anyone who believes that the U.S.A. can continue down its current path without serious repercussions has their head firmly lodged in their own ass. You can’t hand the key to the kingdom to a con man and expect that he won’t screw you over, too. Didn’t “The Music Man” teach us anything?
So, I’m hopeful that America’s long national nightmare will be over soon. There are going to be plenty of dates in the very nearly future where many planets will be forming fateful conjunctions with one another in the sign of Capricorn, so it makes it difficult for me to pick the one that I believe will coincide with Trump’s ultimate demise. Nevertheless, January looks really bad for worst President in the history of the United States, especially January 21, 2020.
Let the games begin!
