Steve Bannon, Trump’s former strategist and best-buddy until his publicity seeking fell foul of the boss’s ego, has been arrested and charged with fraud over a fundraising campaign to build a wall on the US-Mexico border. Despite claiming “We Build the Wall” was a volunteer organisation and promising all the $25 million raised would be used for construction, some went sideways to the four in charge to fund their personal lifestyle. They issued “sham invoices and accounts to launder donations and cover up their crimes, showing no regard for the law or the truth” according to the SDNY prosecutor. If found guilty Bannon, US veteran Brian Kolfage and two others could face decades in prison. Trump denies all knowledge and recent contact with Bannon though the fund appeal had a stamp saying ‘Trump Approved’ and Don Trump Jr. visited one section in New Mexico in a year ago.
Bannon, born 27 November 1953, no birth time, is a Sun Sagittarius with a publicity-attracting, showbizzy Mars Neptune in Libra sextile a controlling Pluto, in a can-be-fanatical square to Uranus, and a confident trine to Jupiter in Gemini.
He has a sharp-shock from tr Uranus opposition his Sun/Mars midpoint exactly now alongside the radical-upheaval tr Uranus opposition his Pluto/Node midpoint running till late September, repeating on and off till January 2022; and worse a catastrophic tr Neptune opposition his Mars/Pluto midpoint now until late this month and again repeating through next year till January 2022. 2021 from late January has the car-crash tr Pluto square his Mars/Saturn midpoint as the same time as the devastating tr Pluto square his Neptune, both running till late 2022. He will muster up some of his standard bullish bravado with tr Pluto opposition his Jupiter/Pluto midpoint for the next year but it won’t outweigh the others. With a deep gloom Solar Arc Pluto conjunct his Saturn by 2022.
His partner Brian Kolfage, 21 September 1982, is a late Sun Virgo square a slippery Neptune, with an adventurous Mars Uranus in early Sagittarius conjunct Bannon’s Sun. He’s also got Saturn Pluto in Libra which is under stress from tr Pluto in square for the next two years; plus some calamitous transits to two Mars midpoints in 2021.
Audrey Strauss, the Acting US Attorney for SDNY, who replaced Geoffrey Berman bounced by Trump, has been spearheading this investigation as she did the Ghislaine Maxwell one. See previous post: May 7 2019
