Roger Stone – in the eye of the storm



Roger Stone, a political strategist and long-time ally of Trump, has been arrested in Florida, charged with seven counts in the Mueller probe – for obstruction of an official proceeding, five counts of false statements, and one count of witness-tampering.

The charges are linked to an alleged Russian-led hack into the emails of Democratic Party officials and their subsequent release by WikiLeaks in the run up to the 2016 US election.  According to BBC’s Anthony Zurcher, ‘The move marks a significant development in this nearly two-year legal drama. For the first time a member of Mr Trump’s inner circle, albeit an informal one, is facing charges directly related to Russian election meddling – the central thrust of the special counsel’s investigation.’

Born 27 August 1952 in Connecticut, Stone is a political lobbyist and consultant having worked for Nixon and Reagan and other Republicans; and is a long-time business associate of Paul Manafort.  He is a self-confessed ‘dirty trickster’ and says his MO is ‘Attack, attack, attack—never defend” and “Admit nothing, deny everything, launch counterattack.”

He has a Virgo Sun but his chart is dominated by a fearsome, controlling and opportunistic Fixed Grand Cross of Mars (Moon) in Scorpio opposition Jupiter in Taurus square Pluto opposition North Node in Aquarius – ultra-controlling, not given to social niceties, will cut corners to get what he wants, stubborn to the nth degree and vengeful.

He’s unlikely to roll over and play nice for the authorities and giving in is hardly his style. But for all that despite a bullish front from tr Pluto trine his Jupiter through 2019, he looks disheartened, untypically panicked and facing a run of disastrous setbacks this July and onwards into 2020.

His relationship chart with Trump isn’t as beneficial as their long connection would suggest with a mutually unsupportive composite Mars Neptune conjunction; though that is balanced by an expansive Sun Jupiter. It looks on high alert at the moment till mid-February with tr Uranus square the composite Sun; and stressed from tr Neptune in hard aspect to the composite Mars/Pluto; with some relief in April, but mounting concern in June and on.

  1. It seems to me, from just watching people with Mars/Jupiter hard aspects that they fit the “soldier of fortune/mercenary” psychological profile. My brother had it and that was no joy to live with. To have a FIXED Grand Cross?!? Ugh. NO morality whatsoever after you take into effect his Moon/Pluto square (inability to bond with others in psychology). The total summation – in psychological language – is that of a sociopath.

  2. A processing crime, remember if in a jam say; “I don’t remember…that’s not something I have prior knowledge of…I don’t know…it’s kind of hazy…terribly sorry to disappoint you but it’s hard to be old and asked so many things all at once

  3. Oh that composite chart is a doozy; Neptune/Mars rising; betrayal, failure, loss, (Ebertin: termination of association, unions) and Uranus midheaven; sudden rise or fall, unusual aims in life, big upsets.

  4. This was quick! He was not only arrested, he was arrested by a SWAT team at 6 am. Most interesting bit of the indictment, of course, is Stone cordinating “Organization 1” leaks with a “high up” operative with Trump Campaign. This happened after Manafort was gone, and the person was, almost certainly Donald Trump Jr. or Jared Kushner. Kusner’s astrological situation is horrible, of course, but I still think this was Junior’s operation.

    • I believe Organization 1 is Wikileaks, according to reports. Stone appears to have been the go-between with Trump campaign and Wikileaks, though he of course denies it.
