Today Puzder said in a statement, “After careful consideration and discussions with my family, I am withdrawing my nomination for Secretary of Labor. I am honored to have been considered by President Donald Trump to lead the Department of Labor and put America’s workers and businesses back on a path to sustainable prosperity. I want thank President Trump for his nomination. … While I won’t be serving in the administration, I fully support the President and his highly qualified team.”


Mr. Puzder is the CEO for CKE Restaurants that licenses franchisees. On the West Coast this is mainly Carl, jr.  On the East, they are known as Hardees.  Mr. Puzder was nominated by President Trump for Labour Secretary but his comments that the minimum wage should be state and not federal based caused a lot of trouble with the media and Congress.

Alexander Acosta, who was named Thursday, has already passed muster with senators three times, winning confirmation under President George W. Bush for a position on the National Labor Relations Board, as assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division and as U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Florida. He has been dean at Florida International University’s law school since 2009.  AFL-CIO leader, Richard Trumka has endorsed him.

 The Meat and Potatoes


We rectified Mr. Puzder’s chart for an 18+ Cancer Ascendant based on his biography which has the Hyperion Symbol of “Guitars and Mandolins” rather ironic as Puzder started his career in guitar sales for his alma mater, Ohio State.  McClung writes about this symbol that it suggests duality which is fitting as he does have a law degree but is known more for his Hardee fast-foods than anything doing with legal affairs.

His temperament type is a Bucket.  The turquoise line shows the East-West hemisphere break, with a lone singleton, Jupiter in the ninth house of long journeys & public writings; he has written extensively on labour issues for the WSJ, Forbes and the National Review.  His career previous to becoming CEO of CKE Restaurants took him from his native Cleveland to  St. Louis Missouri, and now with its advent,  he now goes routinely to all fifty states viewing CKE operations from his home in Tennessee.

Opposite that Bucket handle is Saturn at 15.13 Virgo, creating his Line of Personality, see the rose oval.  This suggests he puts his strong personal & religious views in the forefront, whether it was as a Pro-Life lawyer in Missouri sponsoring an abortion law prohibiting the use of state money for abortions or commenting on how federal litmus test for a minimum wage was actually discriminatory because of the various differing standards of living.

That opposition has an outlet forming a T-Square at his Venus, see the light pink oval, at Gemini 16.3 conjunct his Moon both in his eleventh house showing his deep personal commitment to his community, employees, and franchisees.

While Mr. Puzder will not be US Labor Secretary, based on his chart and past performance, we are sure he will continue writing, discussing and vetting public policy.

General Michael Thomas Flynn has been in the news a lot lately.  There is no birth data anywhere for him other than place, Barrington Rhode Island and month December and year, 1958 —  so we chose one and rectified from there.  Read ahead for is our very speculative chart for him.

President D.J. Trump saluting General Flynn, then National Security Advisor

We propose that General Flynn was born December 7, 1958 in Barrington, Rhode Island at 3;46 AM, EST.  This time/date  gives him a bucket temperament type with a Mars Singleton handle in the Seventh House with the practical sign of Taurus ruling.

We feel that this works because with Mars as a Singleton it gives great emphasis to his Martial (i.e. Miliary) career and his strong desire to rise in prominence within the ranks.  The singleton also gives him a special talent, dealing with military relationships, and the ability to focus in that area of his life with strong concentration.  Often this shows up with someone who is so intent on the big picture that they are felled by an acorn, tripping themselves up by looking ahead and forgetting to watch their step.

He does have a Rim opposition (Uranus v. ) but it requires Chiron (the asteroid of Personal Respect) instead of as Dr. Jones would like, one of the major planets.  As such, with this opposition, it suggests that General Flynn is a stable person, does not fly off the handle and treats people fairly; in short he has a logical and equitable disposition.

This setup of Uranus v. Chiron, also works into Fixed T-Cross with Mars v. Jupiter is atypical and suggests that as soon as the General solves one crisis (problem) he works on solving the next and gives him great potential for accomplishment.  Unfortunately as we previously noted, it also gives him a tendency to scatter his resources, be secretive (the Ascendant of 06.07 points to a person who prizes highly his privacy) and in the process undermine his success.

If only that was not so……….maybe you have a better idea?  Let us know.

Flynn’s fall occurred because of the discrepancy he reported to the Oval Office and what was recorded and illegally leaked. The Washington Times thinks that inside rivals may been integral to the general’s quick fall.
