The Year of Four Emperors (69 AD)
It’s no exaggeration to suggest that the United States is going through a similar situation that the Roman Empire did in 69 AD. After Nero committed (assisted) suicide, four men in succession took over his job as Emperor. Since we’re looking ahead to next year’s Pluto Return for the States, the thought occurs to me that a similar sequence could take place, and with people who may have similar astrological links to those men.
The difference, of course, is that the USA is a republic, not an empire, so the position of President is not exactly the same as an Emperor. But Trump overturned the (American) apple cart by acting like one, and the world is watching how the American version of Pax Romana has come apart at the seams. (The withdrawal from Afghanistan is a case in point.)
Have you thought what might happen if Biden is somehow sidelined? Automatically, the next in line is the Vice-President, Kamala Harris. But a female President would antagonize one half of the voters while exciting the other half. Following her is the Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, a person the Republicans revile. Finally, there’s Patrick Leahy, the President pro tempore of the Senate. (And this is assuming that the US government has not been overthrown.)
Aulus Vitellius (September 24, 15 AD – December 20, 69 AD)
What’s weird about all this reincarnational research is how I managed to skip this individual. I know I looked at him in passing, but then jumped forward to Vespasian, the ultimate successor.
I have now got two versions of this chart on my computer, both of them with randomized time. The other version has two inconjuncts, one involving the Moon and Saturn. By the passage of a morning, that inconjunct disappeared here, leaving only the other one.
Uranus Inconjunct Pluto
This aspect indicates changes in the world of the people who were born at these times, changes that were difficult to understand because they were very revolutionary but subtle in many ways.
Perhaps I should have left the Moon/Saturn inconjunct in place, but I’m also aware that no one really cares about this third of four emperors.
So, if the line of succession works in the present, this man would have reincarnated as Nancy Pelosi.
Nancy Pelosi (March 26, 1940)
Does it surprise you that I might have dared to compare this woman to a Roman Emperor? Nothing is written in stone, as you know, so anything is possible.
I did not choose this birth time, so I’m not aware as to its accuracy or provenance. But there is one inconjunct, this one also featuring the Moon, but this time with Jupiter instead of Saturn.
Moon Inconjunct Jupiter
This aspect indicates that you have a positive, optimistic outlook on life, and you enjoy socializing with good friends. However, there are some dangers with this aspect. First, it can be a sign that you are self-indulgent and possibly even selfish, although this is not likely to happen if you have a good, strong relationship with your mother. You have a great need to be cared for and supported, to be accepted for what you are with no strings attached. If this need is fulfilled, the positive side of this aspect will flourish. But if your mother does not support your needs fully, you will feel insecure and will look elsewhere for support and fulfillment. In this case your concern will be totally for yourself with little thought for other people’s needs.
On the other hand, if you feel emotionally secure and accepted, then you will be able to give others the support that you would otherwise have been seeking for yourself. You will help others in their times of need, share what you have with those who have less, and find great satisfaction in taking care of people and animals.
Here is a painting from the late 1800’s, depicting the fall of Vitellius in the streets of Rome.
I only wanted to show you this painting to remind you about how vicious the people can be when they turn against their leaders. (Does it remind you of January 6th?)
You might think, at first glance, that these three charts are not connected in any way: look again. Vitellius’ ‘fatal’ North Node/Neptune conjunction in Aries is conjunct Pelosi’s Jupiter (and therefore part of the inconjunct to her Moon). Her own North Node is conjunct his ‘fatal’ Saturn, and her Pluto is conjunct his ‘fatal’ Jupiter. Looking further back into the past, we see that Pelosi’s Neptune is conjunct Vitellius’ natal Part of Fortune, and his natal North Node is conjunct her Mercury. Pelosi’s Sun is in opposition to Vitellius’ natal Midheaven and her Saturn is opposite to his natal Pluto.
Therefore, if I were you, I wouldn’t write off this connection entirely.
