To paraphrase the great astrologer C.E.O. Carter: Temperament and disposition are determined in quite certain terms in the individual’s nativity, but character is left to the dominion of free will.
One can never know for certain the true motives behind another man or woman’s actions. But because inherent temperament and disposition are so difficult to overcome, what we call ‘destiny’ becomes so due to the likelihood of certain behaviors under certain circumstances. It is my position in this work I call Judicium Astrologica, that politics, and the business of money, brings out the very worst behavior in men and women, thus, in the analysis of stellar influences upon America’s governmental matters, or an individual’s nativity to that of the USA, it is the malefic influences that become dominant.
In this work there is a great need for objectivity, and absolutely no room for Pollyanna. If the message in the stars for America is full of gloom, or maddeningly repetitive, then this is what I must still report. In this work I have had to put aside my personal bias in favor of, or against, one particular political figure or another, and simply allow for the stars to speak for themselves, and then act as nothing more than a translator. Needless to say, I have experienced some disappointments by what I have found in my analysis. Thus, I report my findings to my readers sans my own personal opinions, and in my best ability to judge these stellar influences.
The reader should understand that, in my horoscopic outlook for the mundane (that which effects the whole world) or specifically for the USA, what I am interpreting is what is made possible, or perhaps, potential, by the various stellar influences. Again quoting the great astrologer Charles E.O. Carter, “The stars incline, they do not compel.” Good astrologers live by this. There are, however, certain stellar conditions by which what is ‘possible’ or even ‘potential’ is also made probable. But not all influences are so clear or powerful. So for the record, unless I specifically state that a particular event is ‘probable’, then the influence is to be considered ‘possible’ or ‘potential’.
