Trump and Gingrich: Which One's Which?
by Jude Cowell
Apparently Mr. Trump will be the Republican nominee for the 2016 race for the White House and, politician being needed to bolster his lack of knowledge, many pundits are speculating that his choice of VP running mate could turn out to be former Capitol Hill-er, Newt Gingrich, the old shut-down artist and Bohemian Grove attendee himself. As you may remember, Gingrich led a shut down of the US government in 1995/1996 and was pivotal in taking out a Saturnian Contract On America (which is what I've always called it.) What will the Pied Piper lead Donald to?
Trump and Gingrich working together as POTUS and VP would be two big-headed megalomaniacs bashing their noggins together! Mr. Trump is a street smart wheeler dealer while Mr. Gingrich actually is intelligent in a scholarly way so could the skim-the-surface circus barker put aside his ego long enough to take advice from The Professor who knows Politics? Well, Mr. Gingrich has been promoting Mr. Trump for quite a while now and it seems that both men are determined to 'make America great'...again. Of course, in this noble sounding endeavor they must manage to ignore the part Republicans such as Gingrich played in undermining America in the first place. (And no, they weren't the only ones.)
So is this why they seem so similar to one another? Well, they do have a lot in common, don't they?
Astrology Says: Newt and Donald Share Sun Gemini-Moon Sagittarius Personalities!
Of course, there are plenty of differences to be found in their charts and psyches as well. Mr. Trump was born in Queens, NY on June 14, 1946 after the older Mr. Gingrich had entered the earthly flux on June 17, 1943 in Harrisburg, PA. Obviously their solar degrees are close in Gemini but to have such close Moons 3 years apart (two Full Mooners)--well, I won't say it's a 'match made in Heaven' because I refuse to believe that our beneficent Creator would do that to us. However, Trump's chart is basically a Lunar Return for Mr. Gingrich and almost a Solar Return for him, too.
Now previously in a post about Mr. Trump I wrote that Sun Gem-Moon Sag adds certain tendencies...such as flamboyance, outspokenness, independence, and spontaneity. An inquisitive 'eternal student' and "positive thinking" promoter is described by the zealous Air-Fire Sun Gem-Moon Sag. Add lots of mental ingenuity, intuition, and an ability to talk people into most anything and we have the pair of them. Education makes the diff in how each one turns out though the image of a used car salesman seems quite appropriate for both, imho.
And 'perpetrator of multiple marriages' applies to both men, too, which may be attributed in part to their shared Sun-Moon personalities which can wriggle out of tight corners but with clouds of indiscretions and misdemeanors following behind. This relates to an emotionally immature 'Peter Pan nature' where greener pastures are sought if and when the going gets tough--and it always does, doesn't it? Taking responsibility for actions is not a strong suit either which is not to say they don't have good ideas at times. How such personalities could fit within the White House and lead the country into anything other than a ditch is anyone's guess but please don't say that either one of these big talkers is what the American people deserve because they seem to me more like the President and VP that no one was waiting for!
Never a fan of "Pied Piper" Gingrich (nee, Newton Leroy McPherson), I have stated here and there that No, Newt is not from Georgia. I am from Georgia, he is from Pennsylvania. It's a small point but pundits used to remind the public quite regularly of whence came Newton--and it was not from my home state.
So have a look at the natal horoscope of Newt Gingrich if you wish while I confess that years ago it was a relief to think that I would never again have to mention him on Stars Over Washington or anywhere else but with Newt's name back in the news a la 2016, the charm has apparently worn off so here he appears.
Astrologically noting that transiting Saturn in Sagittarius, planet of restriction, authenticity, authority, and responsibility, will reach the natal Moons of both of men from December 2016 into 2017 bodes a fair amount of ill for their deepest desires (Moon) for expansion, plus, Saturn will simultaneously oppose their natal Suns possibly denoting health issues. But we'll see how effective conservative Saturn turns out to be at denying or limiting them in what their strong egos (Suns) demand. Or, this applies to Mr. Trump if Newt is out of the official picture and for the purposes of this post. Naturally the women (Moons) in their lives could be affected as well especially with their natal Gem-Sag Full Moons indicating partnerships. Anyway, old man Saturn and 'Peter Pan personalities' seldom team up very well being opposites and all.
