The root of all evil

By Cal Garrison a.k.a. Mother of the Skye

This week’s horoscopes are coming out under the light of a Capricorn moon, on the eve of a full moon lunar eclipse at the 24th degree of Capricorn. Following on the heels of the new moon solar eclipse on July 2, Tuesday’s full moon, and the events that surround it, are directly connected to the things that were staging a grand entrance two weeks ago. What transpires on July 16 will be reflected in scenarios that play out between now and early January 2020.

In the column that I wrote for the new moon eclipse, you may recall that I chose to focus on its conjunction with the trans-Neptunian points, Hades and Kronos. Here is a quote from that post:

“Combined in a conjunction, Hades and Kronos have the capacity to generate anything from airplane disasters, to high profile sex scandals, to legally sanctioned investigations into the secrets of the past, to the rich and famous getting caught with their pants down after years of portraying themselves as above reproach. There is so much to this connection, we could find a million ways to interpret it.”

Within a few days of the first eclipse, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was arrested at New York’s Teterboro Airport on charges of sex trafficking of minors. By itself this is no small thing, but Mr. Epstein’s arrest has blown the barn doors off a scandal whose aftershocks go all the way to the top. One of my readers ventured a guess that the Hades/Kronos conjunction would highlight what is known as “The Lolita Express” and he was right on the money.

It’s been mentioned that eclipses, and the events they underscore, are connected in a sequence. If his arrest in the shadow of the first eclipse is noteworthy, it’s no accident that Mr. Epstein is due to show up for his bail hearing on July 15, within 18 hours of the full moon eclipse on July 16. These synchronicities prompted me to want to look into the horoscope of the man whose seat at the center of a web of international intrigue made me wonder if his chart might offer some way to explain his role in all of this corruption.

Right off the bat more than one aspect stuck out like a sore thumb. If I wanted to go deeper I could, but what showed up on the surface was enough. Here is the short list:

1. The sun in Aquarius, conjunct Eros, Apophis, and Sphinx: If we take the sun to be our identity, Mr. Epstein’s sun/Eros conjunction says that he is completely identified with his sexuality. In this case, because the sun and Eros are also conjunct Apophis, and because Apophis is by definition the root of all evil, it would appear as if his sexual nature is beyond twisted. With Sphinx combined in this mix, it means that there are secrets, unsolved mysteries, and things that aren’t meant to see the light of day, associated with his perversions.

2. All of the above opposing Aphrodite: This puts a nubile spin on his sexual preferences with the Lolita archetype being his drug of choice.

3. The sun, Eros, Apophis, and Sphinx, along with Aphrodite, all sextile/training Lucifer and Narcissus and squaring Saturn, Neptune, and Hades: Jeez Louise! Need I say more? The Lord of Hell (Lucifer) is in cahoots with narcissistic tendencies that make it totally OK for Mr. Epstein to wallow in corruption: he feels at home there – evil is his happy place. He has no shame, no conscience. The square to Hades compounds the scumbag mentality, augments his criminality, and adds an extra layer of slime to his nature. I find it interesting that he parades around looking like “Mr. Cool,” the kind of guy who creates an enviable, preppy, richer than God impression; So much for outer appearances. He is in fact, “the Devil in disguise.”

There is much more to say about all of this. Epstein’s chart is a treasure trove of filth and corruption. For now, a quick peek at the tip of the iceberg may be enough. Keep an eye on what happens as the floodgates continue to open and this story progresses. Epstein’s little black book is filled with the names of scads of rich and powerful people. Will he blow the whistle on them? I am betting that he will – and if so, all hell will break loose and as the saying goes, there will be no rest for the wicked.

Let me leave you with that, wish you a happy full moon lunar eclipse, and invite you to take what you can from this week’s ‘scopes.
