Now that Mr. Trump will take the Oath of Office on January 20, 2017, I have been studying his natal horoscope even more closely than before. One chart factor that keeps 'popping out' at me is his 10th house Uranus in Gemini which leads the rest of his planets and is the last planet to rise before the Sun. This condition is called the Oriental Planet and as such provides clues to his 'inner guiding voice' and to the skill set he inherited at birth. Mr. Trump can use his 10th house (Career; Public Status) Uranus in communicating, trading, deal-making, negotiating Gemini to maneuver himself out of the scrapes he gets into though I'm tempted to add that the duplicitous nature of the Mercurial sign of Gemini (along with quirky system-busting Uranus) is usually how he gets into trouble in the first place!
Be that as it may be, a search for more information on Oriental Planets has lead to a handy article written by Michael R. Meyer, author of A Handbook for the Humanistic Astrologer among others.
Here I paraphrase Mr. Meyer concerning people born with Uranus Oriental, some of which applies to Politics and Society:
As Guiding Planet, Uranus describes what needs to be shaken up because it's out-moded or 'in the way', particularly in the social and political sphere. Uranus oriental folks are often dissatisfied with themselves, with their social status, and with general societal conditions. Quirky radical Uranus reveals in an unexplained way that conditions and circumstances could be improved but unfortunately, The Awakener (astrological Uranus) doesn’t necessarily provide insight into how to manage things "after the revolution."
Plus, as you know, the Uranian Mr. Trump has called NATO "obsolete" ('outmoded') but as The Guardian reports, Trump warned by Nato chief that 'going it alone' is not an option. Well, I'm not certain his Uranus Oriental is impressed by such a warning as long as member nations don't "pay their fair share" (grouses Mr. Trump's golden Jupiter in fairly balanced Libra!) And Uranus does tend to isolate, separate, and/or break up systems and organizations.

I think all but the most gullible among us already feel that Mr. Trump really doesn't know how this president-thing and 'revolution' should or will proceed in a way that safeguards our nation, if indeed that's what he intends to do. Uranus is, after all, America's 'totem planet' of war, revolt, revolution, crisis, separation, and disruption and his difficult Pre-Natal Solar Eclipse @8Gemini (2 Old North) with its 'bad news' potential conjoins US natal Uranus!
So what are the chances that Donald Trump will gain more realistic historical and philosophical perspectives with the alt-right history-challenged operatives gathering around him in the White House? Yet if president-elect Trump can manage to do this, he may find the balance necessary for fulfilling the *Republican plan to shrink and revolutionize the US government into whatever crabbed form they pretend is an improvement while still protecting the US populace and improving their plights...after the zealous dust of Uranian chaos settles, that is.
And so it seems that America's future depends upon one president's erratic Uranus in changeable Gemini, a familiar condition for We the People considering our nation's revolutionary beginnings, although now as then, outcomes and consequences will be unexpected, to say the least. Will the old order of Saturn give way to the new order of Uranus just as quickly as it would have under a neocon president such as perpetual warmonger and may-as-well-be-a-Republican Hillary Clinton? As I type, 'Democrat' President Barack Obama continues to push the TPP which will do much to set up corporations as everyone's overlords. Thanks, Obama.
All this said, how curious that some journalists intend to garble the notion of a 'Trump revolution' all together. Example: Donald Trump May Have Won--But this Is Not a Right-Wing Revolution.
Isn't it? My suspicion is that both History and Donald Trump's Uranus beg to differ.
*Please note that it isn't only Republicans who wish to collapse America so that a 'new world order' can be established--and if the Democratic Party actually fought against global government, outcomes would be more favorable to the American people and to the rest of the world. jc
