Part 2: The Indiscreet, Blustering Mr. Trump
by Jude Cowell
Yesterday we discussed the natal horoscope and planets of 2016 presidential candidate Donald Trump who is refusing to drop out of the race as top Republicans request. He says he will run as an Independent if he doesn't get the Republican nomination and after looking at his natal chart, and progressions including his Solar Arcs for Election Day 2016, I can see how he might have an impression of victory. After all, his huge! Jupiterian personality and links to royal star Regulus make all things seem possible, even taking over the highest office in the land and the Commander-in-Chief status that goes with it. And given his interest in the occult, perhaps Mr. Trump practices Astrology or has astrological insights to guide his decisions.

Today in Part 2, let's consider Mr. Trump's Sun Gemini-Moon Sagittarius personality blend with a word or two concerning his Pre-Natal Eclipse Saros Series themes and timings. But first...
Here is NOT (video was removed) Donald Trump responding to the McCain controversy (that he created) on This Week ABC--what the GOP can finally react to in full-throated condemnation in an attempt to squelch the inconvenient comments, candidacy, and public popularity of Mr. T:
~~~~~~~this is where the ABC video clip was embedded~~~~~~~
With Air-Fire combinations a 'live wire' quality is emphasized along with zealous communications that impress or intimidate all within earshot. Living at a fast pace, Mr. Trump gets carried away with his own rhetoric and is impressed by his own eloquence. Clever, witty, and charismatic, he reveals a contagious joie de vivre while coming across as a hot air balloon (or, a windbag) to many, a result of his communication style as a mentally active visionary under the influence of an irrational Mercury-Neptune square (see yesterday's post, linked above). Mr. Trump is an impatient and restless fellow who tends toward Utopian idealism (as do most US politicians, if truth be told.)
An extrovert who 'knows exactly what is good for' America, Mr. Trump prefers broad horizons yet tends to be emotionally immature and seemingly superficial. Sun Gem-Moon Sag adds certain tendencies as well such as flamboyance, outspokenness, independence, and spontaneity. An inquisitive 'eternal student' and "positive thinking" promoter, Trump insists on being true to himself. Not mentioned in yesterday's post is his natal Moon-Saturn inconjunct (150 degrees) showing that deep insecurity and feelings of inferiority lurk behind his bravado, probably instilled in him is childhood. In adulthood, social service is often used to mitigate this particular inconjunct which also contains feelings of guilt. More positively, its energies allow him to specialize--in his case, in financial deal-making and self-promotion. A desire to 'be where the action is' partially accounts for his presidential aspirations.
Having a talent for inspiring others, the vivid Mr. Trump possesses the nature of a used car salesman which some have called carnival barker, snake oil salesman, huckster, or something similar. Yet, even for Mr. Trump, motive matters and his interest in performing a social service may be more genuine than his inconvenient candidacy and ill-considered remarks will allow. He wants to discuss weighty matters with intellectuals yet his aggressive (Mars in egoistic Leo rising) communication style may be what keeps him within the superficial category in the opinion of most people.
Yet, as pundits say, he has 'tapped into something' that the public wants to hear--ye olde speaking truth to power comes readily to my Flower Power Generation mind. But as potential Trump voters may notice, cooperation and successful teamwork become more difficult to sustain as time goes by when it comes to working with Donald Trump and his extreme judgmental attitude allows no second chances for the hapless 'losers' he dislikes. If Trump fans want an autocratic dictator in the White House, one who likes to fire people but more flamboyantly than a Romney, they have such a choice with Donald Trump.
As for his fact vs fiction issues (underpinned by a Mercury-Neptune square of distortion), the highly sensitive (Moon-Saturn inconjunct) Mr. Trump will not or cannot take responsibility for his effect on others no matter how negative they may be. He's never asked God for forgiveness, he says, and apparently has yet to feel the need to do so. In his expansive private world where Communion involves mere crackers, no one can be surprised at his lack of humility before his Maker. And that's a major negative for evangelical voters!
Yet Donald Trump has not always slept upon a bed of roses. For one thing, there are cyclic issues to deal with via the 18.6-year occurrence of his Pre-Natal (PE) Solar Eclipse which is also his Syzygy Moon (last lunation prior to birth--he's an 'eclipse baby' which is often the case with notable public figures who lead eventful lives.)
His PE degree @8Gem48 conjoins America's natal Uranus (8:55), our totem planet of revolution, rebellion, freedom, independence, war, and sudden or shocking events. This hints at a lack of adaptability on Trump's part to the basic principles that our nation was founded upon and denotes quirkiness and unexpected events pending if he should enter the presidency--and perhaps a disruption of such Uranus-Neptune (*Enlightenment) principles. Falling within the 2 Old North Saros Series, his PE themes include difficult potentials such as unfortunate news concerning relationships and alliances, separations, and broken unions and partnerships. But no matter how glum things seem, taking fast action can bring positive results (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.) This is Prince William's PE for he was born as another 'eclipse baby' at manifestation in 1982.
Update 2.21.16: the following paragraph contains minor edits. jc
The last occurrence of 2 Old North was on July 1, 2000 @10Cancer (among US planets in Cancer on July 4, 1776) and 2OldN's Uranian energies imprint upon the entire New Millennium; the next will be on July 13, 2018 @21Cancer. 2 Old North's initial eclipse occurred on July 24, 792 (OS) @5Can49 which either of you may recognize as the position of America's natal Jupiter on July 4, 1776 if that matters to America's future destiny that some voters and backers see as the presidency of New Yorker Donald Trump, real estate wheeler-dealer.
*Enlightenment planets recently enjoyed their own Uranus-trine-Neptune frequencies with the Solar Eclipse of November 3, 2013 @11Scorpio. Type 'eclipses' in the sidebar Search Box for a list of these 'wild cards' of the Universe.
