The Emperor, or The Star for 2017?

Tarot card #17
I've noticed for the last two years that tarot cards numbered with the last two numbers of the current year really seemed to resonate in thematic ways, an example being this post of mine from the beginning of last year -
2016: The Tower Card #16?
Tarot #16 (2016?)
"The Tower is commonly interpreted as meaning danger, crisis, destruction, and liberation.
This card follows immediately after The Devil in all Tarots that contain it, and is associated with sudden, disruptive, and potentially destructive change."

Well, could that post have been any more prophetic, with the man named Trump from the tower coming down to take up the so called "most powerful position" of any man in the world?-) 
I was kind of relieved to see that the Star card was the number 17 card until Doug from the '42 Minutes' podcast show mentioned about Crowley switching the Star card for the Emperor card in his deck, which kind of makes more sense when you think about it. 
This switch played out in the American presidential election on a symbolic level ... and only a symbolic level , because no matter who won out of those two "choices" was not going to be a win for the people ... in fact I hate to say it, but Trump winning may have been the best result as far as the planet was concerned, but my intuition tells me that maybe the real president when all the smoke (and mirrors) settle will be Pence.
You might want to blow the dust off those JFK DVDs at this point, if Trump really is as good as his word, because I can't see the powers that be, would be too happy if he was to follow through with his promises.
But most politicians aren't as good as their word and for his sake, he better not be;-)
At this stage I can't tell if Trump is a real thorn in their "side", or not.
Only TIME will tell I guess;-)
Anyway, getting back to the tarot cards, here is why Crowley decided to swap the Emperor with the Star in his deck (watch the You Tube below) 
So, that kind of puts a bummer on 2017 if that is the case, because now we have a 'Man in the High Castle' type situation, although hopefully not that extreme.
The Emperor
And were there any Emperor stories in the world news headlines to usher in 2017
Japan emperor: How abdication could usher in a calendar change
"For the first time in two centuries a Japanese emperor may be about to abdicate. The huge change for Japan could also affect one aspect of everyday life - the calendar.
Emperor Akihito
, 83, has hinted he wants to stand down at the end of 2018, allowing Crown Prince Naruhito to take over.
Japanese media have reported the government is considering letting Naruhito assume the crown on 1 January 2019, a date that would finally synchronise the traditional Imperial calendar with the modern Gregorian one.

The Emperor?!
Russia should reinstate the monarchy and appoint PUTIN as royal emperor, says influential Moscow churchman
"Russia should reinstate the monarchy, and appoint Vladimir Putin as royal emperor, says an influential Moscow churchman.
Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin said another option would be to bring back the Romanov dynasty, which was overthrown exactly a century ago in 1917.
'We are a country with monarchic mentality,' he said, at the launch of his new book.
'It doesn't matter that we don't now have formal monarchy, I think we can re-make it with Putin on top.
'Or else with somebody from the Romanov house, or with an elected person as head[?].'
He insisted: 'While we don't have formal monarchy, we have monarchic understanding that Russia cannot be without a tsar.
Should that be Tsar, or Star?-)
Now this FB wants to be Emperor, as well.
He wants to be emperor: How Mark Zuckerberg 'quotes Greek legend' to Facebook staff as friends say he is primed to run for president in 2024
"Facebook insiders have told how Mark Zuckerberg quotes Greek legends to staff and 'wants to be emperor'.
In the latest indicator that he may one day run for president, Vanity Fair quotes several "friends" of the CEO who say he is well suited to politics and has designs for a career beyond Silicon Valley.
They say the 32-year-old is naturally drawn to leadership, with the phrase 'he wants to be emperor' apparently 'common' among his peers.
'He’s been incredibly careful about cultivating a specific type of persona over the past few years,' said one friend, suggesting Zuckerberg's move into politics is in the works.
His fascination with Greek legend also seeps into his management style. Zuckerberg is said to have once recited lines from the movie Troy to a packed room of Facebook staff.
When new employees ask why they should join the company, he apparently urges staff to tell them: 'Because people will remember your name.'
While Zuckerberg has yet to make any statement suggesting he will run for office, friends said he would most likely make a bid in 2024 when he is 40.

One circus leaves town to make way for another one it seems.
Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus to close after 146 years
"The curtain is coming down on "The Greatest Show on Earth", with the owner of the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus to close forever in May after 146 years.
The iconic American spectacle was felled by a variety of factors, including declining attendance combined with high operating costs, along with changing public tastes and prolonged battles with animal rights groups all contributing to its demise, company executives said.
"There isn't any one thing," Feld Entertainment chief executive Kenneth Feld said.
"This has been a very difficult decision for me and for the entire family."
The circus
, with its exotic animals, flashy costumes and death-defying acrobats, has been a staple of entertainment in the United States since the mid-1800s.
Phineas Taylor Barnum
made a traveling spectacle of animals and human oddities popular, while the five Ringling brothers performed juggling acts and skits from their home base in Wisconsin.
Eventually, they merged and
the modern circus was born.
The Felds said their existing animals — lions, tigers, camels, donkeys, alpacas, kangaroos and llamas — would go to suitable homes.
Ms Feld said the company would continue operating the
Centre for Elephant Conservation.
The Feld family bought
the Ringling circus in 1967.
Ringling Bros
has two touring circuses this season and will perform 30 shows between now and May 21.
