The House Intelligence Committee’s Russia hearing

FBI Director James B. Comey and Adm. Mike Rogers, director of the NSA, will appear Monday before the House Intelligence Committee to speak about alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, including potential connections between President Trump’s inner circle and the Kremlin. It is the first time Comey and Rogers have testified publicly since Trump took office two months ago — a period during which Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, resigned and Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from Trump-related investigations.  March 20

The House Intelligence Committee hearing  today takes place just two days after retrograde Venus conjoins Mercury.   A chart for the conjunction at Washington, DC has the now familiar Jupiter-Uranus-Pluto T-square straddling the meridian. 

At the core of the T-square is still the Uranus-Pluto square. The essence of Uranus in Aries square to Pluto in Capricorn is the vexing question: Who decides what is permissible in society? Do individuals have the freedom to choose what they will or won’t do, or do collective agencies — from public opinion to various kinds of dominant social institutions — have the power to determine what actions will and won’t be allowed? Uranus in Aries can mean standing up for individual freedom through the protection (and sometimes the reassertion) of personal rights against the draconian power of a collective — whether governmental, corporate, or social — that no longer considers the needs of individuals.

In Capricorn, Pluto symbolizes the overwhelming power of large institutions, including governments, corporations, and all social organizations , which may be either just (by taking account legally and morally of the greatest good for all in the attempt to serve the society) or unjust (by operating in secrecy to serve only the institution itself or the elites in power).

Finally, we note that the asteroid Atlantis [20 - 21cn] is on the IC opposite Pluto occupying what is technically called the reaction point of the T-square. Among other things, Martha Wescott [1] links Atlantis with spying or invasion of privacy.

ATLANTIS: invasions of privacy; access to inside or confidential information; abuse of information; importance of confidentiality/use of knowledge.
