London, Trump, and the Temple of Golden Mithras

The Cosmic Mysteries of Mithras provides readers with details on this ancient super-secretive Roman cult but today Mithraic influences are found all over the world. Know any gold worshipers? How about Donald Trump's golden penthouse atop Trump Tower? Or the Bull of Wall Street, an obvious example?

Yet for all his love of gold, the boasting Donald Trump is really, really proud to be the "King of Debt"!

Then as a gold significator in Western Astrology, we have Midas (#1981) named for the fabled King Midas of the 'golden touch' whose love of gold caused suffering and loss with loss being the dark side of the Mithraic-Midas picture, an ensnaring fate that no one ultimately escapes no matter how much gold and treasure they hide away. See the Washington Posts' The Paradise Papers Expose Trump's Fake Populism.
