month, in April 2016, the USA chart (4 July 1776 at 2:19 pm in Philadelphia)
shifted: the progressed Ascendant just went into Leo, emphasizing Leo qualities
and Leo people. Within weeks Ted Cruz and John Kasich dropped out, leaving the spotlight
on the Lion.
His good fortune will not last, for Trump's progressed Sun will leave Leo and enter the more humble Virgo in mid-August 2016, after the GOP Convention. Now, what would humble The Donald? Off the top of my head I would say his tax returns and official financial status. Could it be that by September he will not be strutting around so proudly because it will be clear that he is not so successful as he says?

It was a powerful moment, bringing tears to many people's eyes. When I saw that on video, it felt like the most important endorsement Bernie could receive -- the endorsement of Nature! And indeed he is the one who is most in support of Mother Earth as far as issues of fracking, climate change, etc.
I once had a sparrow alight upon my shoulder for a moment, while
I was hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more
distinguished by that circumstance that I should have been by any
