Ed Murray: Embattled Seattle Mayor

 

Murray has been Seattle’s mayor since 2014. In the spring of 2017, ahead of the year end next round of elections, several allegations of sexual misconduct eventually forced him to withdraw from the race-though he continued to serve as mayor. Then, in September news broke that a fifth man – one of his cousins – came forward to accuse him of sexual abuse decades ago. Murray resigned effective immediately. There is no available birth time but notice that transiting Uranus has been challenging the Neptune to Jupiter/Uranus square while transiting Neptune is in square to Mars. Depending on the exact birth time Saturn could be transiting in square to the Moon as well. Three major challenging transits at the same time can prove very difficult to overcome. As to the nature of the problem, Pluto is often a factor when issues of sexual abuse are present. Natal Pluto is square mercury which would be enough to correlate with this kind of thing at some point in his life and chances are his birth time would verify the importance of this square. It is also interesting to note that the travelling lunar nodes are linked to this natal Pluto-Mercury square at the time of his final resignation. An accurate birth time would of course cast further light on all of this.
