The smoke signals continue to float above the US Supreme Court indicating all is not well in the halls of justice with political, financial and religious interference ongoing. Athena, goddess of justice had Medusa’s head on her shield to scare off those who would transgress against the scales of integrity, honesty, righteousness, impartiality, rectitude. Quite where any of those fit in with Clarence Thomas’s shenanigans is mystifying. The latest revelations are of an astute and expensive PR campaign to defend Clarence Thomas when the 25th anniversary of his appointment came round a few years back with reruns of Anita Hill’s story of his alleged sexual harassment of her.
It continues to this day as he is sanctified and she is smeared. And all this when Thomas is also exposed along with his wife as being on the receiving end of generous support from benefactors. There have been other revelations recently about wealthy conservative donors gaining access to justices outside the public eye.
SCOTUS, 2 February 1790, has a controlling (and secretive) Sun Pluto in Aquarius with Pluto in an ambitious trine to Neptune and a ruthless opposition to Mars conjunct Jupiter. It is sailing through stormy seas with tr Uranus last year square the Sun, this year square the Pluto and in 2024 square the Mars. Plus an undermining tr Neptune conjunct the Venus. Quite whether that is enough to put it back onto the paths of righteousness is questionable. But there may be more murk to emerge.
There are two names mentioned most frequently as string pullers. One is Leonard Leo, a staunch Roman Catholic and longtime executive of the Federalist Society, an influential nonprofit organization for conservative lawyers. He has led advocacy campaigns to help confirm every conservative Supreme Court justice over the past two decades.
The other is Harlan Crow, a Texas billionaire and GOP donor who ProPublica revealed this year has taken Thomas on luxury vacations, has made donations to dedicate a library wing to him in Savannah, Ga etc.
Neither have verified birth dates other than net sources so what follows needs to be regarded with caution. Leo, 1 November 1965 Long Island, if accurate, is a slippery Sun and Neptune in Scorpio with Uranus Pluto in Virgo opposition Saturn and in a ruthless square to Mars (Venus) in Sagittarius. Which looks feasible. This chart is very entangled with the SCOTUS chart though the puppet master’s grip may be loosening through this year and next.
Harlan Crow, 10 October 1949, a billionaire in real estate Texas, has a collection of Nazi memorabilia and has been more than generous to Thomas over the years. On this birth date he is a Sun Neptune in Libra square Jupiter in Capricorn with a hard-nosed and ruthless Mars Pluto in Leo which taps into certain elements of Hitler’s chart so is also feasible.
Clarence Thomas is on a slide from 2025 onwards with tr Neptune and Saturn square his Cancer Sun, Mercury, Venus. More on Clarence and Virginia Thomas in previous post 7 April 2023.
But what it says about the state of the US nation is more to the point. This week ‘the Democratic-led Senate judiciary committee voted to advance a supreme court ethics reform bill that would tighten financial disclosures and bolster recusal requirements for justices. The vote was 11-10 along party lines, with Republicans adamantly opposed.’ That really is the rot at the heart of the US -both the justice system and politics.
