What Life Themes Will Express via Our Next President?
by Jude Cowell
Although uncertainty has been the case concerning the correct birth time of 2016 candidate Hillary Clinton, and the natal data for Donald Trump is assumed to be accurate, one thing can be considered accurately without a known birth hour: a person's Pre-Natal Eclipse Saros Series (PE) and its themes. That is, if their birth dates are correct! And since we don't know the name of our nation's next selected president--Clinton or Trump--let's assume that their birth dates are accurate and check out the life themes via the Solar Eclipse Saros Series into which each of them were born.
Let's begin with Mr. Trump since he was born before Hillary Clinton; a few pertinent details will be added where applicable:
Donald Trump June 14, 1946: PE = 2 Old North manifested @8Gemini48 on May 30, 1946 and is also his Syzygy Moon (last lunation before birth--a solar eclipse is, of course, a New Moon). This two-for-one chart factor further emphasizes the importance of his PE, its aspects, house placement, and *degree. In 1946 this eclipse conjoined US natal Uranus, our 'totem' planet of revolution, war, radicalism, and disruption.
2 Old North is considered a difficult series with themes of: separations, endings of unions (ex: divorces), unfortunate news regarding relationships or friendships and conditions look glum but taking fast action can bring positive results.
This degree (8Gemini) in 1946 conjoined fixed star Aldebaran (a Tauri, the Bull's Eye, and Watcher of the East; the Wall Street bull and worshiping the Golden Calf may also apply). Aldebaran's opposition by degree to violent Antares in Sagittarius is significant in Mr. Trump's life--if not previously, then certainly now that he's running to be Commander-in-Chief of the US military, the traditional role of the presidency (if indeed it remains so). Naturally we think of 'Trump the bully' and his relentless insults and attacks on his opponents supported astrologically by his natal Mars in Leo rising with the kingmaker star, royal Regulus. And we might even think of Aldebaran and his youngest son Barron Trump!
And let's note that Adriano Carelli gives 8Gemini two possibilities which may co-exist within one person: a 'dualistic, self-contradictory nature, a rough character' that is 'irascible, reckless, and often (breeds) strife and contention' but is 'well-equipped for prompt action and violent activity'. Alternately, this degree suggests 'commercial aptitude' (his deal-making Mercury is in Cancer, sign of the shrewd businessman) and that he 'loves comfort, desk activities, and administrative jobs' and 'leaves others to do the hard work'. And yet, in spite of a potential for 'domestic strife' (especially with the involvement of disruptive, separative Uranus), a 'love of home and family' is indicated.
The initial eclipse of the 2 Old North series manifested on June 24, 792 (OS) @5Cancer49 which conjoins US natal Jupiter (banking, corporatism, The General, the broadcaster and promoter). This gives Mr. Trump's natal Gemini PE a Cancerian flavor through which it may express and ropes his natal Saturn and Venus in Cancer into the picture. His PE and its initial eclipse (8Gem and 6Cancer) fall into his 11th house of Groups and Associations which resonates with the relationship themes of 2 Old North.
Now if Mr. Trump is selected to play CEO from the "bully pulpit" of the Oval Office, 2 Old North and its themes will soon repeat on July 13, 2018 @20Can41, a critical degree. Disturbingly, transit Pluto, a planet of karma (reaping what was sown) @20Cap00 Rx, also a critical or crisis degree, will oppose the 2018 eclipse and provide more transformative and/or destructive qualities (Pluto) than usual to events brought by the eclipse yet with Pluto we cannot rule out nuclear or plutonium involvement or surveillance though regeneration may eventually be the result. And we may expect that the karma of this particular 'cosmic blink' (2 Old North) will also affect our nation and our populace with plutocratic Pluto in the 5th house of Self Will for it will be a critical time of development, full of new perspectives--some positive, some negative.
Hopefully, a President Trump's PE themes will not result in a total falling away from America of other nations and heads of state due to what are certain to be his disdain for tradition and his disruptive policies and proposals which may mean well but have little concern for unintended consequences.
Hillary Rodham Clinton October 26, 1947: PE = 3 North which occurred @28Tau41 (in the Pleiades constellation) on May 20, 1947; her Syzygy Moon perfected @20Lib03, and on her day of birth, the Taurean North Node arose with Alcyone (one of the Weeping Sisters of the Pleiades). Her PE falls into her natal 8th house of Corporatism and therefore links to the 2nd house of the National Treasury.
3 North is also a difficult series with themes of: obsession, news about young people, or, news that transforms a situation; the information received can cause worry so that large plans are deemed necessary and can have positive results as long as one doesn't get 'carried away'. If these themes sound familiar to you it may be because 3 North is the PE of the WTC attacks of 9/11/01 and we continue to experience the violent consequences of hawkish neocons Bush-Cheney getting 'carried away' with 9/11 as pretext for their previously made plan to invade Iraq with 'misdirected energy'.
For Carelli's symbols, let's consider both 28Taurus and 29Taurus for it seems that both may apply to Hillary Clinton. 28Taurus suggests one who is 'steadfast' yet 'is likely to be tormented by ambitions and dreams of power past realization'. 29Taurus has a word picture: "A woman leading a beast of burden by its halter" which denotes a wife bullying her husband and a 'domineering temper' with 'an outer display of bluster'. (And here I thought Mr. Trump was the more blustery of the two! But that's thespian Politics for the cameras, isn't it?)
The initial solar eclipse of 3 North manifested on October 10, 991 (OS) @22Gemini, the degree of US natal Mars, the warrior planet, and joins in with the square to our nation's natal Neptune, planet of deception, fraud, scams, ruses, and fog. Yes, America's natal Mars-Neptune square continues bringing We the People and the rest of the world a lot of grief and turmoil via the square's misdirected energy, misguided aggression, faulty inspiration, and reluctance to face reality. For we know that "the fog of war" is too often the unfortunate outcome of Washington's meddling in other nation's affairs as shadowy characters direct our secret government (Neptune-Saturn) to strive toward world domination.
Hence, the tragic stand-off in Syria whose government refuses to succumb to the 'new world economic order', aka, the global banking syndicate of crooks and thieves. And we must note Hillary Clinton's considerable connection to war in Syria and across the Middle East during her senatorial and State Department days. And soon we're faced with the Election Day prospect of a hawkish Hillary giving orders from the Oval Office. Is she preferable to disruptive Uranian Donald Trump whose campaign promises may sound like great ideas in a nationalist, protectionist way but may only be ruses intended to rile and corral voters into his self-interested salesman's corner?
What a non-choice we've been finagled into on November 8, 2016 yet the worst reaction any of us can have is to stay home from the voting booth, something the shadowy characters would dearly love since large numbers of stay-at-home voters in November would make their expected victory and the undermining of the US government even more complete.
Update Oct 3, 2016: have just visited Facebook where I watched an ISAR video interview with astrologer Marc Penfield who has revealed the birth time of Hillary Rodham Clinton to be 2:18 am which gives her mid-Virgo rising with Mercury Rx as chart-ruler conjoining the Saturnian South Node in the 3rd house of Communications. These conditions support her famous Scorpio reticence to share information. It also resonates with her serious, policy-wonking Mercury-Saturn square. Happily now I will be updating my chart file on Hillary and perhaps writing the post I declined to write previously (because she's never seemed a Scorpio rising to me) with the 2:18 am time in comparison with the Election 2016 and Inauguration 2017 horoscopes. jc
