A ginger step into Donald Trump's 12th house

Trump: A Man Overshadowed by Shadows

by Jude Cowell

The partial horoscope you see below centers on the 12th house of Donald J. Trump born June 14, 1946 in Queens, New York. Assuming that his birth time of 10:54 am edt is accurate, we find a Leo cusp making the Sun ruler of his 12th house with karmic Pluto and warrior Mars posited there in the house of the Unconscious. In a different house system, there may even be a bit of the Moon there as well through the last degree/s of Cancer, so I'll include that just in case and you can see what you think of its potentials. Of course, mundanely speaking, the 12th is also the house (department) of Politics, Self-Undoing, Karma, Behind-the-Scenes, and Large Institutions.

So now, if we all hold hands and tip toe, it may be safe to take a ginger step even deeper into the 12th house of the secretive Donald Trump by considering the 12th house influence of the Sun and Moon along with his Mars and Pluto posited there; and please note that all of these planetary energies are often displaced onto other people via Trump's transparent attempts to deflect accusations away from his nibs himself:

In his book Houses of the Horoscope: An introduction, Alan Oken names the micro-cosmic 12th the "I Am the Universe" house and says that it is "the custodian of the truth" which contains both hidden treasures and weaknesses. Plus, Oken notes that the 12th house is the place of hospitals, prisons, monasteries, dungeons, and insane asylums. One assumes that the US Congress must be included along with zoos. And since primal Pluto is the planet of Psychology, we should also note that Trump's natal Pluto in prideful Leo is unaspected and thus its influence is detached from the rest of his psyche and cannot moderate other components of his nature--neither can Pluto regenerate them. So manipulative wealth-hoarder Pluto, an 'ivory tower' isolationist, stands alone in Trump's Unconscious and suggests that he is a man "overshadowed by shadows" (Tierney), a condition which renders him consciously unaware of his most primal urges, desires, and motivations, and therefore leaves his darker nature intact and in charge.

Distorted by years of repression, Pluto in 12th house denotes intense passions, primal fears, and obsessions that for Donald Trump are unevolved because his Pluto is unaspected and detached from his other planets. He may often feel that his ego will be overpowered by others unless he fights 'tooth and nail' for he must win at any cost just to survive. Compulsively he tries one defense then another in an effort to defend himself from attack even though the gained relief may be only temporary and such 'solutions' usually lead to bigger problems later on. Is Trump a bearer of our Collective Shadow? Pluto in 12th says so, and reveals the presence of demonic forces of the unresolved 'sewage' of mankind. Tragically, this supports the theory now being heard in our public discourse that we Americans have the president we deserve.

That his natal Pluto has no regenerative function with his other planets says that shadowy facets of his personality are never confronted in meaningful ways, therefore, Trump is as he has been and will be. "Let Trump be Trump," say his fans. But unfortunately this gives Underworld Pluto even more power to sabotage and manipulate in dark and hate-filled ways.

As for Pluto (or Scorpio) associated with the 12th house, a famous bard said it best for he 'enjoyed' such a placement himself: "Hell is empty! And all the devils are here." - William Shakespeare.

And this American suggests that many of them have infiltrated Washington DC, led by Donald Trump.

As ruler of his 12th house, a 12th house Sun influence is a placement suggesting unconscious arrogance and egotism. A private sanctuary is needed since a sensitive and vulnerable nature is implied. This placement hints at Trump's private world of his own, a fantasy world where everything goes 'right' for Donald. Feelings of inferiority and poor self esteem were created by narcissistic parents who (one or both) belittled him in childhood. Yet his inner resources are vast and they must have been since he overcame negative conditioning enough to rise to the top position of leadership in the US--with Politics being an interest of a 12th house Sun. And as we've noticed, tolerating failure is not an option for Mr. Trump with a 12th house Sun influence for he only admires 'winners', an attitude his father may have expressed.

Of course, poor self esteem tends to inspire self-defeating behaviors and spark the images of martyrdom playing in his head as he reacts to current criticism as if his (shaming) parents are on his case. For on an unconscious level, they are--and these are life-and-death matters to Mr. Trump whose fight for survival goes on via the difficult situations that he himself creates from a deep-seated sense of guilt for being born. And this solar placement indicates feelings of being 'squashed' by his father who probably treated Donald's existence as insignificant. Note that Trump's natal Saturn (father; authority figures; restriction) in detriment in Moon-ruled, shell-building Cancer (mother; family; self-protection) supports this with tendencies toward difficult family contacts, depressing conditions within the family, emotional hypersensitivity, lack of personal security, neurotic reactions, materialism, and weight gain (Sakoian).

Moon and the 12th house: Maybe?

With very early degrees of Leo on the 12th cusp in the Placidus System, a possible Lunar association with the Unconscious 12th house in a different house system suggests a very private person though you'd hardly know this from Trump's long-held desire to be in the public spotlight. Actually, I've wondered of late how he could possibly have expected that gaining the White House with its resulting brighter spotlight would keep hidden certain of his actions and relationships secret. Oh well, that's another of the many paradoxes of Donald Trump and of course, the Moon is associated with publicity, good and bad! As for a possible 12th house Lunar influence, it indicates that feelings are often blocked and he tends to seek refuge in habitual activities performed automatically. One thinks of buckets of fried chicken eaten in bed as he watches TV personalities who support rather than criticize him. "Be strong, don't cry!" may have been heard from mother back in the day and any dependency on others probably frightens him on an emotional level.

And so it seems that little Donald may have been forced to care for himself in various ways due to an unavailable or distant mother and thus has learned substitution behaviors and activities for the nurturing he did not receive (his natal Moon conjunct the Saturnian South Node speaks to early separation from or rejection by mother--or the fear of it, resulting in rejection issues that may include feelings of physical inadequacy).

It has been reported that Mr. Trump spends hours with his mirror every morning tending to his personal toilette which includes a hair routine and Moon influencing 12th house denotes one who is compulsive about maintaining his caring-for-self rituals. To me, he favors someone who cuts their own hair because he doesn't trust anyone else to do it his way!

Now on a more positive note, Moon associated with the 12th house reveals a person with exceptional intuitive ability ('reading people') which is very useful in Politics and in public relations as he uses rhetoric to sway the masses ('the public' - also represented by the Moon). In fact, he used this ability to read public sentiment and got himself elected with it through reading emotional undercurrents. This intuitive ability is the primary reason I include a 12th house Moon here, that and Trump's deep emotional need for constant publicity and his issues with women.

Yet also, Mr. Trump seems to be confused over his relationship to women and has distorted ideas about them and about motherhood. Multiple homes and restlessness are suggested here due to a fear of 'settling down' and a deep distrust of others is also shown by a 12th house Lunar placement--distrust which was probably engendered by early emotional insecurities and strains.

Mars in 12th House: Anger Issues

Besides having Pleiadean stars of rage and passion at his Taurus Midheaven, motivational Mars, planet of action and energy, is in 12th house indicating that secret plots and hidden enemies are involved in his life and much work is carried on behind the scenes (including the hiring of 'private eyes'). Unconscious anger can be misdirected or displaced onto others while secret relationships, compulsive romantic affairs, and/or unacknowledged infatuations and fantasies may be prevalent. Passive-aggressive behavior and acts of revenge are implied as are hidden fears and paranoia--often concerning secrets or scandals which may become public and embarrass or humiliate. This "plumb the depths of the psyche" placement of Mars would be advantageous except for the non-involvement of his detached Pluto mentioned above. Still, Donald Trump is capable of plumbing the depths of other people's psyches although he keeps this handy skill as hidden as possible while using it to avenge himself against those he considers his 'enemies' (real or imagined). Note that the indications of the Moon possibly associated with his 12th house concurs via her intuitive ability.

Mars in 12th house also describes Trump's temper tantrums and enraged overreactions to outside events that don't go his way and to people who get in his way, and yes, again this placement points toward parental complexes instilled in Donald during childhood and adolescence when he probably heard such things as, Be a Man! or, You have no right to be angry! Of course, with his Mars rising in egotistical Leo, plus, the chaotic behavior of his natal Uranus in duplicitous Gemini, we know that angry is exactly what he was and is almost constantly. Yet 12th house Mars prefers to avoid open conflict, thus his squishy way of firing people such as former FBI Director James Comey--because Trump fears being challenged and feels inadequate to successfully defend himself. This placement also indicates one who sends others out to defend and/or speak for him, such as his old pal Rudy Guiliani and press secretary Sarah Sanders (often kept 'out of the loop' so that lies can be told with a more-or-less straight face).

As for acts of revenge, Donald Trump was apparently born with royal Regulus rising, a star with a caution to avoid taking revenge, otherwise all that has been gained will be taken away. This caution isn't proving to be one the retaliating Mr. Trump seems able to observe and we'll see at some point whether its dire warning comes to pass. After all, it's a natural law that what goes up must come down.

Now without going into too much detail, we should mention that a 12th house Mars also indicates a potential for sexual trauma in childhood leading to sexuality issues aggravated by the Be a Man! damage he may have internalized. In other words, his aggressive desire nature was squelched but has run rampant every chance it got. Now I have previously stated that the recent 'raid' of Dr. Bornstein's office of Trump's medical records came once the doctor publicly mentioned that Trump takes a hair loss drug, Propecia, with its known side effect of causing impotence, a 12th house fear of lusty Mars. His rising 12th house Mars in romantic, proud Leo must have been enraged by this anti-macho disclosure!

Plus, the Martian placement also suggests that Trump may suffer from disturbing nightmares (is this why he's said to sleep very little?) which range from aggression to acts of violence (undoubtedly intensified by his 12th house Pluto, planet of rape and the Underworld). He certainly has suggested that acts of violence be committed by others during Campaign 2016 and has identified with them himself from the bully pulpit of the White House.

Still, Mr. Trump may not consciously know what he wants until his desires are frustrated and he may be disappointed once he achieves them. That this may include his long-held obsession with occupying the Oval Office I shall leave up to you to decide.

Horoscope Feb 15, 2018: 'We The People' Solar Eclipse

Image: 'We The People' Solar Eclipse February 15, 2018 @27AQ07 so labeled because it eclipses US natal Moon in the 'Sibly US foundation horoscope' (July 4, 1776, late afternoon LMT with Moon in third decan of Aquarius. A late afternoon chart is one of many versions although other dates are potentially more foundational; some charts are set for Philadelphia, Pa).

Feb 15, 2018 4:05:08 pm EST Washington DC: Hour of Venus, Venus exalted in Pisces, corporate 8th house with a critical-crisis 29th degree on the cusp; Solar Eclipse Saros Series = 1 South (key themes listed, upper right, paraphrasing Bernadette Brady's Predictive Astrology); eclipse has just barely passed into the 7th house along with Mercury @25AQ49 and health asteroid Hygeia (repeal legislation again? Yes, the GOP promised tax cuts! They promised Charles Koch and other billionaire donors, that is.)

As seen in the horoscope, the opposite sign and degree, 29Leo21, is on the 2nd cusp of the National Treasury which in part stimulates themes of The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017 (info is distorted and possibly false; unexpected events place great pressure on relationships; fatigue or illness possible) and spotlights the natal Ascendant of Donald Trump along with royal Regulus (success if revenge is avoided). Have more waste and fraud of taxpayer money been perpetrated? If so, my suspicion is that some Trumpsters have engaged in additional pilfering, embezzlement, and/or theft via other areas besides private airline travel. Is this eclipse indicative of our National Treasury dangerously at risk? It so often is, you know. And there's quirky maverick Uranus at MC (Goal Point; Aspirations), planet of radical reforms, revolts, disruption, upsets, activism, fanatic zealotry, Utopianism, and those with unusual reputations in the world.

So you can suss out more factors in this chart and the solar eclipse for yourself, right? And you see listed on the chart under the eclipse info that 1 South's last manifestation was on February 5, 2000 @16AQ01...and you know what lay ahead at that point just prior to the much-touted practically magical and numinous 'New Millennium', don't you? The propaganda, paranoia, and glowing promises? Y2K madness? Tech bubble bursting? If you're old enough or can read, that is!

Now as this eclipse perfects at 4:05:08 pm EST, rising in Washington DC is dwarf-planet-archetype Ceres (food supplies, grains, milk, motherhood, sustainment, distribution, symbolic sheafs of wheat of a Virgoan goddess variety, and more) and she's retrograde suggesting a slow down or delay of some sort (FEMA difficulties come to mind). Yet with the fortunate North Node of the Moon in 1st house some development or growth with beneficial results is possible. Then in 7th house South Node @15AQ59 conjoins the degree of the Lunar Eclipse of August 7, 2017 so that similar issues or events of that period may return for further development, or may reoccur in similar fashion. Plus, North Node in Leo suggests festivities, entertainment, and a love of pomp such as an acting POTUS might have to endure. Or demand, depending on his personality--mild or brash.

Video: The Ceres Lights (13+ minutes).

And then with thinking Mercury in Aquarius nearby the eclipse, logic and common sense are needed for best karmic progress to be made for the sake of society, as suggested by a solar eclipse manifesting in cool, detached, rational Aquarius, the sign of We The People's Moon, as some believe, and a Tech, Science, and Futurism indicator.

As the BOWL Tips

Leading a BOWL shape of all the planets is Jupiter @22Sco31, 4th house, with Jupiter the General, CEO, politician, and/or preacher as the basis of it all and watery Scorpio as the sign of Big Business, Stealth, Wealth, control and/or betrayal. Are there more leaks of private information on the way? A BOWL shape emphasizes one hemisphere over the other and here we find signs Taurus through Libra 'missing' along with the related experiences described by those realms. Only the 1st house North Node links the two halves of the chart across the self-other axis.

The orientation of BOWL personalities can be advocacy of a cause, the furtherance of a mission, or perhaps it's based on divisions (and the furtherance of them? Trump!) The strongest point of application is the leading planet if it is in a Grand Cross pattern or in strong opposition which this Jupiter no longer is for the Jupiter-Uranus opposition is weakened with money-bags Jupiter in financial Scorpio and Uranus still in Aries. And yet, BOWL folk have something to give their fellow man and it may be "constructive or vindictive" (Jones) and will probably come by way of Jupiter in Scorpio (which is Reagan's natal Jupiter sign = massive tax cuts for the rich as Democrats in Congress enacted October 22, 1986?)

Now all this eclipse action is on the Leo-AQ self-will axis so Mr. Trump, the most famous Mars Rising in Leo fellow of bravado and quarrels that we know, is suggested on various levels of activity and events brought by the eclipse. However, it's important to note that it's Trump's natal Pluto @10Leo that is his first natal planet to rise in this particular horoscope so make of its power potential and wealth-grabbing-and-hoarding what and as you will or may.

For as you know, all eclipses are 'wild cards of the Universe' and 'cosmic blinks' that indicate times of change, pay attention--and those changes may involve sudden disruption, like astrological Uranus tends to do. Or not. Sooner or later. Or not at all. Because you know what they say about The Sky God: Expect the Unexpected and you'll never be disappointed.

Safe Glasses for watching August 2017's 1 North Solar Eclipse @29Leo

Safe Eclipse Glasses and the August 2017 Eclipse of Donald Trump

by Jude Cowell

Retailer Amazon offers NASA-recommended safety glasses for watching August 21, 2017's The Great American Eclipse, a Total eclipse which cuts a swat across the US beginning in Oregon and leaving landfall in South Carolina.

Also offered is a handy guide (e-book) How to View the Total Solar Eclipse, plus, a view of two horoscopes of the eclipse set for Oregon and South Carolina.

Astro-Notes: Rounding up its degree, this Total eclipse of August perfects upon a critical 29th degree of Leo in the 1 North Saros Series and will conjoin the natal Ascendant of Mr. Donald Trump. A planet or point at a 29th degree of any sign is impatient, unstable, and denotes risky business, or possibly a crisis that must be resolved. Plus, it indicates a 'change of state' (A. Louis) as it struggles toward the next sign (here, Virgo, and royal Regulus, the king or kingmaker: success if revenge is avoided). Fixed stars 'work' through critical or sensitive degrees and eclipses (solar or lunar) and History is affected--but the working is via individuals' charts--such as Donald Trump, in this case. Will his desire to be taken more seriously be satisfied by Mercury-ruled Virgo, a sign more serious, humble, and studious than entertaining Leo, sign of ego and pride? Mr. Trump will be 71 years old in June so I for one remain fairly dubious of much improvement.

Astrological signs point to significant events in August 2017 which must be expected in relation to Mr. Trump and, by extension, affecting the United States of America (assuming the White House doesn't crash down around his ears in June or July). Eclipses are often called 'wild cards of the Universe' due to their Uranian unpredictability so weather and other natural events may be triggered along with other disruptions in society. And as you know, 1 North last manifested on August 11, 1999 @19Leo and is the infamous 'Nostradamus Eclipse', aka, the King of Alarm (or, Terror) Eclipse that imprinted its turmoil upon the New Millennium including the attacks of 9/11.

The Solar Eclipse's Sabian Symbol: '29Leo' = A Mermaid

Keyword: IMPORTUNITY...positive expression: a completeness of quickening to early instincts of the being and a real willingness to trust them; negative (shadow side--jc) expression: a lack of discrimination and an awkward sensitivity (Jones).

(Speaking of awkwardness, cringe along with Trump's Most Awkward Moments on His First Foreign Tour.)

This Is the The Mother of All Eclipses

1 North solar eclipses have occurred in the years 1909 (26Gemini), 1927 (7Cancer), 1945 (17Cancer), 1963 (27Cancer), 1981 (8Leo), and 1999, as noted. Its initial eclipse occurred on January 4, 1639 @13Cap48--opposite US natal Sun @13Can19 (this time links the 1 North to the American presidency and government) so there is a Capricorn lens through which to view the Leo eclipse--not a good fit of energies (Saturn-Sun; 'conceit increases with age'!) which may trigger our US natal Sun-Saturn square, the base of a Fist of God (or Thor's Hammer) pattern that points to US natal Moon (We The People) in our nation's late-afternoon natal charts on July 4, 1776. (See Sun-Saturn info, below)

History and Themes of the 1 North Series

Aside from recent events of the New Millennium, for previous historical events influenced by 1 North eclipses we look first to the years 1945 and 1963. 1N is the Prenatal Eclipse (PE) Series of President Truman's dropping of the first Atomic Bomb, and is PE of the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the swearing-in of LBJ (27Cancer opposes US natal Pluto Rx, planet of plutonium and destruction). 1 North themes include: great pressure on relationships looms large due to unexpected events involving groups or friends (or sons-in-law? jc); it's unwise to make hasty decisions since information is distorted and possibly false (ex: "fake news"? jc); tiredness or health problems are also potentials (paraphrasing Predictive Astrology, Bernadette Brady).

Tiredness and health problems? Is that like in Sicily yesterday when Mr. Trump opted to ride in a golf cart while the other G7 leaders walked a mere 700 hundred yards? One of my guesses is that his 70-year-old knees aren't what they used to be! Or perhaps Mr. Trump chose to putter along in a golf cart because of his Victorian-era view that Exercise Will Kill You?!

Astrology and Astronomy

Now naturally a majority of astronomers discount the astrological implications of The Great American Eclipse lest Science suffer by association. And if all the warnings of astrologers turn out to be fallacious or misdirected, we shall all be very much relieved. But considering how the amateurish Trump administration has been behaving so far and the constant undermining of his reputation by Deep State actors and others, no one needs astrological portents to forecast a very long hot summer for Donald J. Trump and his White house denizens, and what may be a lasting imprint of crisis and change that are due in August 2017, compliments of The Cosmos.

Note that there is also a Lunar Eclipse on August 7, 2017 @15AQ (horoscope set for Washington DC) with the sign's Aquarian Saturn-Uranus vibes. Lunar eclipses give insight into how people instinctively react to the karmic situations and conditions brought by the accompanying solar eclipse and since a lunar eclipse obviously involves the Moon, past behaviors and reactions, plus, inherited traits and other unconscious factors are at play. Notable is that the August 7th Lunar Eclipse is in the sign of US natal Moon (We The People) and Leo-Aquarius is the 5/11 Self-Will polarity of Risky Speculation/Creative Pursuits and Groups/Associations; with 11th house involvement some type of 'social escape' may occur (Rudhyar) for Mr. Trump--perhaps more golfing?

Sun-Saturn in Politics and Business (Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets, Michael Munkasey):

Thesis: the will of the people as defined in the principle founding documents; the checks and balances within enterprises as implemented by various administrations; form and definition in an enterprise.

Antithesis: pessimism and gloom as a center focus of policy; older and more distanced leaders; unreasonable centralization of authority in one location; a leadership preoccupied with the various forms of law enforcement.

Add We The People's Moon to the Sun-Saturn 'Hammer' pattern and we have potentials for: fear, feelings of inferiority, personal needs under wraps (that's in large part the fault of a purposefully dysfunctional Congress whose members are hired to 'do the people's business' jc), hurt feelings, and a sense of loneliness (Ebertin; Tyl).
