Actually, Bannon and Steele fit this even better than the lunar ingress.

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Dec 17)
President Trump's Lunar Return... is complex... Most importantly, Sun and Moon are in precise (0°07') mundane conjunction within a degree of SLR Descendant. Aspects this powerful signal that this is one of the most important Lunar Returns of his year. Exact Moon-Sun aspects mark cross-roads, turning points, or phase changes...

On Descendant, it brings focus on close relationships of all types, both cooperative and competitive. He seeks attention and ratification of his importance from others, not from within himself. More than usual (if that's possible) he draws attention and is the center of it.

But the relationships that matter most this month are severe ones (or more precious ones suffer significantly). Saturn also sets, conjunct both luminaries. Incompatibility stands exposed. Competition and separation outpace cooperation. Sun-Saturn and Moon-Saturn bring burdens, a sense of hardship and abandonment, and more to handle and manage than mot people would care to shoulder...

Mercury opposes natal Uranus (foreground, partile). New things are learned! This may mean that Trump himself makes important discoveries, is surprised, and develops insight, or that information about him is brought into the public arena.

These discoveries and disclosures set the predicted new cycle (New Moon) into motion, breaking up old, locked patterns and generally shaking up his status quo;...

Also, Paul Manafort just filed a suit against the Mueller investigation. Which is such a bad idea, it's clearly a Hail Mary move on the part of a person who knows they are already phukked.

Also, I've read unverified reports that Trump's lawyers had been telling him that the Mueller investigation would be wrapped up soon, in the hopes that he wouldn't fire Mueller and trigger (more?) obstruction of justice charges.

Interesting to see how swiftly the situation has changed now that the tax bill is signed.

Have you been watching the monthly mundane forecasts, the Trump Watch section? You can watch the cranking up month by month, almost week by week, since last summer.

Remember, I wrote a year ago that this is all coming to head at the end of January. That's this month! At the very least, serious nails should have penetrated coffin wood.

Yes, and I've been following the story closely. The Republican congress, Trump, Fox news, Russian troll armies, etc., have all been downplaying Mueller so much. And Mueller is so methodical and tight-lipped that you have to really been paying attention to understand what's been happening this whole time.

It really seems more like the spigot of bad news for Trump got cranked wide open the last few days.

Yes. A few days ago, in the presence of very active charts, I wrote here asking if anything was happening I missed, because, even with the holidays, it was hard to believe it was so quiet. It was all just waiting for the new business week to begin.

Canlunar (Jan 2)
So far as it can happen in a single fortnight, everything now changes. We are startled, taken by surprise, our sensibilities stunned, our workaday clickity-clack mental processes halted. Things are torn down, broken, and removed. Once this week is over, there is no going back; there is only going forward.
I am beginning that the Wolff memoir of the Trump administration may be doing exactly this, and exactly in the two-week period specified.

The Trump melt-down hit a new level of flailing liquefaction this morning near sunrise, when he tweeted out a barrage defending his mental faculties, designating himself "a very stable genius," whose "two greatest assets" have been, "mental stability and being, like, really smart."

Regrettably, other nations are watching this, too.

SIDEREAL LUNAR RETURN (Dec 4)
...His prevailing SLR, as our Caplunar month opens, goes all the way back to December 4. It is quite unpleasant, with a partile Mercury-Saturn conjunction closely rising (Saturn closest, 0°36'). Everything written above about Mercury-Saturn for Trump applies here. In general, it's an unpleasant, grumpy, difficult time.

Nor is it a minor time. Pluto is on Eastpoint. Events this month are high-impact and transitional, drawing a line in the sand that one cannot recross. There is also a shock or blow, a serious start (Mars opposes a widely foreground Uranus).
Over the month of December, Pence learned (and plans were finalized) that there would be significant resignations/departures from his staff. In December, or concurrent with the new year, he lost his Chief of Staff (Josh Pitcock), Press Secretary (Marc Lotter, left in the fall), Chief Counsel (Mark Paoletta, who is going to OMB), and chief domestic policy advisor (Daris Meeks) - four incredibly important positions.

I think all of these people worked either on the Trump-Pence campaign or the transition team, and most have been with Pence for years in different roles.

It isn't usual for there to be significant staff shuffles at the end of the first year of office, though these are pretty common at the end of the second year and end of the first full term. Significant departures have been occurring for a couple of months in the Trump administration (mostly connected to the Mueller investigation, it seems), but the VP staff is much smaller, so this is more striking.

MARS and JUPITER swoop together across the west, including straddling Los Angeles, and (below) just off the northwest coast. I expect his means stormy weather conditions. and I know it means we should watch this with interest...
Indeed, very light rain began yesterday and then, with Moon entering Libra it picked up, It's still not a lot of rain (in LA, it's most mild; a little heavier north of here), but it's just enough, after the largest area-burn fire in California history, that flooding has started - I imagine mudslides, but I haven't seen that mentioned - and there have been a few deaths.

So gentle a thing as the rain, in the aftermath of the fire, becomes deadly: Mars + Jupiter.

When that same gentle rain gets here, it'll last all evening tomorrow and into the night... till between 2 and 3 AM Thursday, when it'll hit the cold air coming down from Canada, and by Thursday AM, we'll have had anywhere from 6 to 18" of snow on top of ice, and with the winds, it'll have become a blizzard. Usually just as deadly as the mudslides I understand have taken at least 3 people.

A few hours ago they updated the report to 8 deaths so far.

We wrap up this astrological month today. Feel free to debrief, i.e., to comment on and assess the accuracy of the predictions. (I think the lunar ingress patterns for southern California were quite "on.")
