This turbulent time frame is on us again. It is when the Sun reaches late Aries and early Taurus from April 18th -21st. At that time it squares the natal and progressed U.S. Pluto at 28 Capricorn 01 and 00 Aquarius 55 R in the 12th house. In 2018, to further emphasize this aspect, we also had the new Moon at 28 Aries 25 on April 18th.

On April 19, 2013, the Boston Marathon bombing suspect was captured alive but wounded — after holing up in a boat in a suburban backyard following a bloody rampage that left a cop dead and a daylong manhunt that shut down the city. The arrest of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, and the earlier death of his brother during a firefight with cops, ended five days of terror sowed by the double bombing at the marathon finish line, which killed three people, wounded 176 and left the city of Boston on edge.

A few weeks ago, I posted an article about the important transits that were coming up in the U.S. chart I follow: the one for the signing of the ARTICLES OF CONFEDERATION, show above. I felt that Jupiter would represent Judge Brett Kavanaugh. As transiting Jupiter at 21 Scorpio was forming a T-square to the 1st and 7th house cusps, as well as being reinforced by progressed U.S. Venus, he was under tremendous criticism and unpopular. The transiting Moon (women) then in Leo was at the midpoint of the U.S. and progressed Jupiter: explaining the opposition of many groups of protesting women. The transiting Sun was at 12 Libra was squaring the U.S. natal Mars at 12 Capricorn, showing that the much of the public was opposed to group who was in power (Capricorn). However, as I pointed out, as soon as transiting Jupiter passed that and came up to trine the U.S. 6th house cusp and the progressed U.S. Sun at 21 & 22 Cancer, the tide turned in the Judge's favor and he received enough votes on Oct. 5th, and was confirmed today, October 6th: as transiting Jupiter reached 23 degrees of Scorpio to conjunct the U.S. Sun in the 9th house.
