In typical braggadocio fashion Trump has gone for two celebrity lawyers to beef up his Impeachment defence team, though how much they will contribute isn’t clear.
Alan Dershowitz, 1 September 1938 11.28pm New York, over a long career has defended the likes of Claus Bulow and Jeffrey Epstein, cutting the latter a sweetheart deal that allowed him to treat a brief prison term as a home from home.
And Kenneth Starr, 21 July 1946 6.45pm Vernon, Texas, who led the impeachment process against Bill Clinton. A former political counsellor said of him: “Whether it was representing Big Tobacco, obsessing about President Clinton’s sex life or disgracing himself in the Baylor rape scandal, Ken Starr has always been on the wrong side of history, ethics, and common decency.” He resigned as president of Baylor University after an investigation found the university mishandled accusations of sexual assault against members of the football team.
Dershowitz has his opportunistic Jupiter opposition Mars in Leo close allied to Trump’s Mars in Leo and his Neptune square Trump’s Sun and Moon. Not ideal and can get overly intense with a power-struggling composite Sun, Pluto, Mercury in the relationship chart. That is being rattled by tr Saturn opposition the composite Sun late March; and square the composite Mercury Pluto mid March into April – so it could get stormy with vehement outbursts.
Dershowitz’s personal chart indicates a less than rapturous mood first week of February with tr Saturn square his Venus; followed by a ‘violent dispute’ into early March with high tension and unwillingness to bend to anyone else’s will; with a stuck tr Saturn opposition Pluto late March. His real catastrophes pick up from spring 2021 onwards which will see a series of disastrous looses and problems.
Kenneth Starr, born only a few weeks after Trump, is a Sun Saturn in Cancer, with three (nearly four) planets in the 8th so an intense personality, not always rational. He has a panicky-failure set of Neptunian sinkers in opposition to his Mars and square his Uranus from late February through April; and again September to late February 2021.
Of the other lawyers:
Pat Cippolone, 6 May 1966, a formidably tough Sun, Mars in Taurus opposition Neptune and trine Uranus Pluto, hasn’t much showing till late April but then he’s sagging badly on and off into 2021; with some triumphs in June. But out of sorts with Trump late March and April to June.
Pam Bondi, 17 November 1965, a Sun Neptune in Scorpio, is in trouble with Trump earlier from February 20th into March and beyond; and her personal chart is in a slump from late February through a series of disaster-prone influence through till April and worse in July – repeating on and off later.
Robert Ray, 4 April 1960, an Aries Sun trine Uranus and square Saturn in Capricorn, is slipping, sliding and losing concentration from late January right through February with tr Neptune conjunct his Mercury with a panicky dip mid February, some confidence boosts at the same time running into March; but disastrous influences June onwards.
