Romney Turns Against Trump
"Conservative" politician Mitt Romney has publicly turned against President Trump in the media. This is not precisely an "ethics scandal", but belongs in a similar class of events because it is an event which publicly reveals, in newsworthy fashion, something about the ethics of a public figure. As always with ethics scandals (and similar events), we are looking for a Jupiter-to-Pallas transit... Jupiter for publicity and Pallas for ethics, generally accompanied by a major outer-planet transit which represents a significant change in status.
A Uranus-to-Jupiter or similar transit also seems to be a common feature of ethics scandals. Here we have transiting Uranus at 28 Aries quincunx his Jupiter at 27 Scorpio.
We've been exploring the possibility that transiting Pallas against a natal chart can correspond with events in which "the truth comes out" against a backdrop of obfuscation and/or false information. Today, transiting Pallas at 22 Libra is trine Romney's Pallas at 24 Aquarius. So, perhaps Romney's "true colors" are in display.
