Sally Yates, the former deputy attorney general, is reportedly being labelled by Donald Trump as a ‘Democratic operative’ and a possible leaker of classified info as she steps up to give evidence before a Senate subcommittee on his presidential campaign’s ties to Russia. She will give evidence about alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election and possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin. She was fired as acting attorney general after refusing to defend an executive travel ban order by Trump in January. Part of her testimony will be about Michael T Flynn, who had to resign after just 24 days as national security adviser after he misled Vice President Mike Pence about conversations he had with Russia’s ambassador to the US.
Born 20 August 1960 in Atlanta, Georgia, she comes from a respected legal family, and while in the U.S. Attorney’s office has held leadership positions under both Republican and Democratic administrations.
Sher is a Sun Uranus Mercury (and Moon) in Leo; with Saturn in Capricorn trine Pluto Venus, sextile Neptune – so a mix of flamboyant and tough. Her Sun is conjunct Trump’s Mars Ascendant so they have an inflammatory interface; with her Pluto conjunct his Ascendant as well – so she has the potential to transform/damage his public image.
Their relationship chart couldn’t be worse with a volcanic composite Mars Uranus Sun square a distrustful Saturn Neptune (Moon); with a power-struggling Jupiter square Pluto as well. It’s under acute pressure at the moment with tr Pluto opposition the composite Mars Uranus, and that runs on and off till late 2018. With a disruptive tr Uranus square the composite Sun; and tr Pluto returning to square the composite Saturn soon, which also extends up to late 2018. And in 2018/19 tr Pluto makes a devastating square to the composite Neptune. Their chemistry would be toxic at the best of times and this is the worst.
There is a very tentative birth date for Michael Flynn of 1 Dec 1958 Rhode Island but I can’t confirm it. This would make him a Sun Venus in Sagittarius, with Mercury Saturn also in Sag; and all trine Uranus in Leo; which in turn is on the focal point of a Fixed T Square to Mars in Taurus opposition Jupiter in Scorpio. The Mars Jupiter is an adventurer/opportunist, so it could fit. And that birth date makes for a bitterly hostile relationship chart with Sally Yates, so could be.
Her own personal chart looks highly stressed and trapped at the moment with tr Pluto opposition the Sun/Mars midpoint, on and off till late 2018. That’s been running for a couple of months in the run up to this; but she’s also picked up the lucky break tr Uranus opposition her Sun/Jupiter right now so something is going her way. September/October look exceptionally fraught for her, which is just after the late Leo Solar Eclipse of August is conjunct her Sun – and Trump’s Mars and Ascendant. So she won’t retreat into peace and quiet after this hearing.
