The swamp will marinade more happily now that Trump has gone against an earlier decision and fired crusading New York US Attorney Preet Bahara. Over seven years Bahara earned a reputation as one of “the nation’s most aggressive and outspoken prosecutors” of public corruption and Wall Street crime, being even-handed about Republican and Democratic NY dirty politicians. He is the inspiration for the hit TV show Billions. He has also been key to taking down organized crime outfits and trying terrorists. Russia has him on their banned-Americans blacklist after his investigations into their human rights abuses over Sergei Magnitsky’s death. There is, of course, now murmurs that he was removed lest he stick his oar into any of the multiple investigations into Trump finances.
Born 13 October 1968 in Firozpur, India into a Sikh/Hindu family, his family moved to the US when he was two and he is a naturalized American citizen married to a lawyer from a Muslim/Jewish family – so five stars for diversity. He has some chart with a dominating Yod of Jupiter Pluto in Virgo sextile Venus Neptune in Scorpio inconjunct Saturn in Aries; with Saturn opposition a Libra Sun Mercury. He’ll have never felt he fitted in, but once he got on track, he’d be totally focussed and find his outsider status and cast of mind an asset.
Saturn on the focal point of a Yod is a tough master to live up to and requires self-discipline and maturity. But it gives tremendous inner strength and points towards a life direction where the individual ‘can display his special capacity for social responsibility and purposeful action.’ (Bil Tierney: Dynamics of Aspect Analysis.)
Tr Uranus is conjunct his Saturn exactly now throwing his life onto a different track with a sudden jolt. He’s also got an undermining tr Neptune opposition his Mars in Virgo this year; and a challenging tr Pluto square his Libra Sun from this month till late 2018. Tr Pluto moves on to a uphill-struggle opposition to his Saturn in 2019/2020; but at the same time tr Pluto will trine his Jupiter Pluto for success and a confident push. Although he has always forsworn politics as being incompatible with being a US Attorney, it’s not inconceivable he could be a player towards the next election.
Marine Le Pen, the French far-right leader, born 5 Aug 1968 also has that focal point Saturn inconjunct Uranus Pluto sextile Neptune – and tr Uranus is exactly conjunct her Saturn over the upcoming French elections, so it’ll be instructive to see what kind of different track she’s pitched onto.
