Will Regulus Assure the Destiny of Donald Trump?


Starry Regulus: the Heart of the Lion and the Destiny of a Roaring Mr. Trump

by Jude Cowell

In the natal horoscope of Donald Trump it has often been observed here and elsewhere that at the time Baby Donny was born, royal 'kingmaker' star Regulus arose on the Ascendant just after his natal Mars in the royal sign of Leo. The Mars Rising signature we see each day through Trump's belligerence, brashness, impulsiveness, boastfulness, competitiveness, and street-fighting nature which punches back at every slight, whether real or imagined. But these days, due to his own actions, the slights and criticisms are real and have no better example than the John Brennan-Donald Trump feud currently in the news.

How predictable that vengeful Trump would take action against the outspoken former CIA director by revoking his security clearance and planning to do so for others on his 'enemies list' (those who stand in his way). Of course, as some pundits have pointed out, security clearances for former officials are left in place after their service for the sake of a current administration in case such expertise is called upon. But the current denizen of the White House never listens to anyone else so what's the point of pretending? For even in a national crisis such as a terrorist attack, Mr. Trump might only depend upon his own opinions and gut feelings to guide him in his chaotic, quirky Uranian manner--or else call upon one of the dictatorial mentors he prefers to mimic as he misguides the American Blimp of State.

So today Trump's battle to silence his critics remains in the news cycle as CNN reports that Trump blasts former CIA director John Brennan as 'loudmouth, partisan, political hack' which continues the drama of this particular Political Theater performance. And it would be amusing how the insults, labels, and nicknames Trump throws at people actually describe his nibs to a T if only his tenure in the White House weren't proving so tragic for our nation. Of course, Republicans, who are compromised themselves, cannot be depended on to stop the monster from crashing our blimp into the ground yet navigator Trump's own inherent nature and grand hubris may be what it takes to eventually crash him as the failure he fears he is.

Now it's often asserted that revenge is sweet, a handy reference to Trump's rising Regulus for all the Royal Stars of Persia, when linked to an individual's chart via planets or angles, contain great promise, but they also come with particular cautions when and if their energies are mishandled, their commands ignored. Of course along with Regulus rising at Trump's 29Leo Ascendant, we also see 'sun god' Apollo rising and expanding his ego, plus combative Mars which adds hyper-sensitivity to his touchy emotions and an annoying me-first attitude.

So what do we know about Regulus? As noted, this major historical star promises great success if revenge is avoided--and what if it isn't avoided but is a regular part of a personality such as we see in the actions and reactions of Donald Trump? Then all that has been gained will be taken way, a difficult destiny certainly but one that in Trump's case is self-inflicted. Yes, Leo (the lion) is the proud sign of ruler-ship and 'the natural leader' yet there are many ways of acting as leader and the natural law of karma--reaping what's been sown--still applies to even the loftiest among us! Plus, as we so often like to say in America, no one is above the law. Well, in the form of Donald Trump as 'leader' We The People with the aid of the US justice system now have a great opportunity to prove it. We're waiting to see how earthly justice plays out for Mr. Trump and his comrades-in-arms.

And if we consult ancient texts and mythologies concerning the stars of the Leo constellation and their early implications we find that Regulus, the Watcher of the North, was linked to king Feridun who once ruled the entire world. Similar to Zeus, Feridun was known as a good and great king much as Mr. Trump wishes to appear to us now--and ruling the world appears to be on top of his personal agenda.

For as Brady's Book of Fixed Stars informs us, "Regulus indicates power and success and so is active in the charts of successful people. But the higher this star takes a person, the more they must guard against revenge." {} "Always strong and hot in nature, this star will make its presence felt in a chart. Much depends on how it connects to the chart, but its meaning will have to do with the striving for success and the potential for ambitions to be fulfilled. However, at the same time it will suggest issues of revenge, always tempting and testing a person. If, out of anger or hurt, the person takes revenge, then as promised with all Royal Stars, there is a falling from grace. If revenge is taken then there is a loss of what has been gained. This loss may be public or private."

Strong and hot? So is Mars rising in Leo with his red ties and red face yelling a colorful tale!

As for other astrological references to Regulus, Ptolemy gives the star in the heart of the Lion a martial and expansive nature 'like Mars and Jupiter' while Robson links it to 'destructiveness and violence' and to 'honor that is short-lived'. Ebertin is generous and gives Regulus 'royal properties' and 'a noble mind, frankness, and courage', elusive qualities Mr. Trump seems to assume for himself. Rigor basically agrees with Robson and adds that the star 'gives the ability to command and to be successful but that any greatness suffers an "eclipse".' Might we agree that this refers to The Great American Eclipse @29Leo which in August 2017 precisely 'eclipsed' the natal Ascendant and rising Regulus of the very vengeful Mr. Trump? Add to that the disruptive 'cosmic blink' or 'wild card' energies of his very own Prenatal Solar Eclipse with themes of 'separations, endings, and unfortunate news' for it repeated on July 12, 2018 @20Cancer, conjoined starry Castor, and perfected quite near his natal Saturn, planet of law, government, business, karmic loss, and accountability.

Excerpt from a previous post: A Solar Eclipse in proud Leo, ruled by the Sun (ego, hero's journey, natural leadership, royalty, creativity, vitality) denotes that karmic progress depends upon use of the positive Leonine qualities rather than pride, arrogance, egocentricity, vanity, pomposity, and other negative traits of Leo which retard or block karmic progress.

Actually, we currently remain under the auspices of a Leo solar eclipse and it's a perfect time for all kinds of towers, lifestyles, and plans to collapse, even those of the self-exalting Donald Trump whose empire is under sustained fire via the Mueller investigation. For as you know, the current eclipse manifested on August 11, 2018 as The Tower Eclipse...so clutch your pearls and corral the horses because something is falling down!

And so for these and other reasons, when it comes to the karmic destiny of the retaliating Mr. Trump, whose troubles are so often self-created, my money's on the great and powerful Regulus. How about yours?
