During any big news event like a natural disaster, other news is often released that takes advantage of the pandemonium knowing it lessens the impact. If there has been a data breach at a large corporation, for example, the news is often released during news of wildfires, hurricanes or earthquakes.
So during this pandemic, I’ve been scanning for the “other” news which is currently political – Putin as ruler for life (with so few sick folks in his country) and starting an oil price war and the US engaging in armed conflict with Iran. Over this year, I would also expect new laws that limit certain rights (Pluto/Saturn/Jupiter/Mars in Capricorn).
One interesting news item that has emerged is Jeffrey Epstein’s cohort Ghislaine Maxwell has emerged from hiding. Who’s Jeffrey Epstein? It has been a long time since 2019.
Epstein is the financier, friend to the rich and famous (including Trump) and, oh, a serial sexual offender targeting teenage girls for much of his adult life. His wealth allowed him to escape punishment until the recent resurgence of the MeToo Movement. Epstein committed suicide last August while in prison.
Maxwell was his friend, maybe girlfriend, who purportedly aided in the acquisition of the young girls. That is what she is being accused of and why her whereabouts have been unknown for a year or so.
This is now, like, ancient history which is why his cohort Maxwell has emerged to sue Epstein’s estate. For a long time Maxwell could not be located. Now she’s emerged in offensive.
Will this strategy work?
According to Wikipedia, Maxwell (like Epstein) is a Capricorn sun. If you’ve read any astrology blogs at all in these last 12 years, you know Pluto is in Capricorn and it’s a rough time to be this cardinal, earth sign.
This year, 2020, Saturn/Jupiter/Mars have also joined the Pluto destructive-transformative energy. Clearly Maxwell did not consult an astrologer prior to her decision to play the victim.
Maxwell’s Mars and Saturn are also in Capricorn; Mars conjunct, Saturn much later in the sign. Capricorn is normally a bit self-centered and Mars makes it more so. Moon in Leo is also about the great ME so there is also a lot of pride in Maxwell’s horoscope.
But I think the current transit of Saturn into Aquarius is going to get her. Transiting Saturn is just about to leave Capricorn for Aquarius this weekend. Had Maxwell paid OHA its small “when to come out of hiding” advisement fee of $10,000, OHA would have suggested sometime next year.
The public may have forgotten about Maxwell but next year they will have really, really forgotten.
Saturn in Aquarius is the social distancing we are being asked to practice as a nation. Saturn in the early degrees of Aquarius will transit Maxwell’s natal Jupiter in Aquarius which loves a large social network. Maxwell’s network will shrink and not because she has to stay home.
Maxwell’s natal moon in Leo opposes Jupiter in Aquarius so while Maxwell may miss her past social life, her social life may not miss her quite the same. Aquarius is friendship and Leo is personal love and the balance is between me and them. With sun in Capricorn and moon in Leo, “me” often wins over “we.”
Maxwell is also experiencing her second Saturn return, which represents cycles of maturity and settling down – acceptance of life’s brevity. It’s a good time to accept responsibility for one’s actions.
It may be too late to return to “whereabouts unknown,” but OHA’s free advice to Maxwell is to use this pandemic opportunity to stay inside and lay low, just like everyone else. If Maxwell tries to fight the law, the law will most likely win.
