Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, already convicted on 10 felony counts including financial fraud and conspiracy to obstruct justice, was facing a second trial on different counts that might land him in prison for life. He was hoping to gain a lighter sentence by co-operating with Robert Mueller but is now accused of breaching his plea agreement and that he “committed federal crimes by lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Special Counsel’s Office on a variety of subject matters.“ More on Manafort’s unsavoury past in the URL below.
Trump has hinted he may pardon him.
Born 1 April 1949 in Connecticut, Manafort is a go-getting Sun Mars Venus in Aries opposition Neptune and trine Pluto – not short of ambition, the art of smokescreening or determination. His stars are mixed with tr Saturn square his Aries planets and Neptune in December/January 2019; though he also has some relief from tr Uranus square his Jupiter through December to early February 2019. Further ahead and over 2020/21 he looks crushed.
His relationship with Trump is panicked in the middle week of this December and is on a fast downhill slide from April 2019 onwards as tr Neptune opposes the composite Mars, then Mars/Uranus, then Uranus into the early 2020s. Though there are hints Manafort may rise again as his Solar Arc Jupiter is conjunct his Mars and then Sun into the early 2020s.
Trump’s former lawyer, Michael Cohen, 25 August 1966, has pleaded guilty to lying to Congress in relation to the Russia inquiry, misleading lawmakers about talks over a Trump property deal in Moscow during the presidential race. Trump said he was “lying” to seek a reduced sentence. In August, Cohen pleaded guilty to violating finance laws during the 2016 presidential election by handling hush money for Mr Trump’s alleged lovers.
Cohen looks discouraged over the next three months, suffering a shock in March and generally feeling dis-empowered and overwrought through 2019/2020 though he may pick up a head of steam again from 2020. His relationship with Trump looks jangled till February and more disrupted come May 2019.
There’s no indication yet that the new Deutsche Bank investigation for money laundering will involve Trump, but it was the one bank which stuck with him through his troubled times. The bank was fined $600 million last year for laundering $10 billion in Russian currency,
Steve Bannon said in early 2018 that Mueller’s investigation into Trump’s campaign will largely deal with the president’s finances with the bank. The probe, he said “goes through Deutsche Bank and all the Kushner shit. They’re going to go right through that.”
Deutsche Bank has two dates – 22 January 1870 and 10 March 1870. The relationship charts with Trump on both of these highlight upsets through this December to mid February 2019; with major anxiety in the days surrounding this New Year.
Trump’s personal chart is slipping and sliding through till the New Year with his confidence undermined. But where he plunges into a variety of sinkholes will be from mid February 2019 onwards for two years, which he’ll no doubt respond to with his usual bullish bravado but it won’t last.
