RNC 2020 Speaker Line-Up: Quirky or Nice?

Sunday August 23, 2020: This is the fairest way I could think of to title this post and describe the upcoming week's line-up of speakers at the RNC 2020: quirky or nice? Naturally the answer depends on which side of the political spectrum you crouch upon and how strong your interest in what Don Jr, Melania, both Pences (adding their two cents' worth?), Ivanka, and Donald Donald Donald have to say. For even more quirkiness and perhaps a chuckle or a yawn, there may be some odd ducks quacking by such as Kid Rock, the My Pillow Guy, oddball Ted Nugent, plus the 'demon sperm doctor' lady personage. Actually, major popcorn popping may be the activity of the week.

Then on Thursday August 27th, Trump plans to accept his party's nomination, politically a foregone conclusion if there ever was a foregone conclusion especially for those who've heard of what is said to be his nibs' fervent longing for a 'coronation' in January. Expansive, big-headed Jupiterian Trump's royal Regulus rising (with sun god Apollo no less!) tends to give him monarchical ideas for himself but with the caution of Regulus still haunting his vengeful, grudge-holding, petty life, he may not receive the crown he covets with all that revenge and retaliation in his cold heart. Crazy isn't it? To have steaming hot Mars rising in fiery, royal Leo along with royal Regulus conjunct Ascendant and yet your Leonine heart is as cold as ice.

So with the 2020 Presidential Election approaching, let's consider the fact that how successfully a person holds and handles a position of authority has much to do with the condition of her or his natal Saturn. And for additional information on such matters we often turn to Saturn Return horoscopes which are sometimes 'three-fers' due to Saturn's retrograde periods when the cosmic lesson bringer may hit natal degree three times. Here's Trump's current Saturn Return #3 of 3 in case you haven't viewed the chart and the crisis pattern therein with apex Pluto @23Sagittarius, the position of the Total December 14, 2020 Solar Eclipse in the difficult 4 South Saros Series. And with both Saturn and Pluto as planets of karma the 4 South eclipse could be a 'wild card' signal from the Universe that for Donald Trump, his comrades, and yes, for America, it's finally time for Fate to Step In.

Trump as Apollo, Hercules, Bacchus? Venus applauds!

By studying his natal horoscope, curious cosmic myths and mysteries turn up concerning Donald Trump who, if one is to believe, was born June 14, 1946 at 10:54 am edt in Queens, New York. Notice the royal reference of his place of birth and, if his hour of entering the earthly flux is accurate, also note that royal star Regulus, the "king maker" or "little king", rises with his natal Ascendant (@29Le55: Self; Physical Body) at the moment of his birth. Also rising is a 'godly' asteroid, Apollo, the ancient 'sun god' along with a certain midpoint associated with goddess (or god) worship, veneration, and idolatry, Venus-Neptune. Perhaps you've noticed that in his own perverted way, Trump worships the female form, craves its beauty. In fact, only young, beautiful women will do! But is his vain self-image detached from reality? In the outer world, yes, but not on an inner level for he sees himself as the handsome Apollo and a royal king, the divine ruler! And we witness his sun worship via the orange face and white circles around his peepers ad nauseum! So whether by spray tan or tanning bed, there slouches our orange-hued 'Apollo' for all to see and marvel upon, red tie pointing ominously downward!

Yet there are deeper mysteries and intrigues under the surface of this superficial Gemini (Uranus-North-Node-Sun) who desperately longs to be taken seriously and to have speaks with world leaders of the strongman variety for Trump considers himself a strongman, too. But as with all human beings he is weak and flawed yet we find clues to his essence by his Regulus rising with lusty Mars in royal Leo (26Leo46) and in the myths associated with the royal star that Roman poet Ovid called Bacchi Sidus, "Star of Bacchus" (the Roman name for Dionysus, who remains well-known for his popular cult following). Of course these days, Regulus-rising Trump enjoys a (dwindling) Twitter following but still reaps benefits from the usual 'cult of personality' made familiar to the American public since the hallowed days of the high-minded George Washington (with whom his nibs can never compare, imho; in fact, they're opposites).

Now everyone knows that the leonine Regulus (now progressed from Leo to 00Virgo) is associated with the Nemean Lion who kidnapped maidens and kept them as hostages in his lair deep within his cave. (This sounds much like the myth of cave-dweller Pluto, god of Hades, and perpetrator of murder, assassination--and rape.) The warriors from surrounding towns would attempt to rescue the damsels in distress but misfortune resulted and so the myth goes that Heracles (the Roman Hercules, the strongman) was given the task of killing the Nemean Lion which he did by breaking its back with his bare hands for the Lion was impervious to all weapons. Does this remind you of the myth of "Teflon Trump"? Apparently it should. And according to the Trumpian mythology of his nibs, he plays the roles of both the Lion and the strongman who conquers!

Now curiously, Bacchus is associated with Regulus, an intriguing connection when it comes to D. Trump. Follow the Dionysus link, above, for more mythological info but I'll include a few details of interest here so you might consider whether or not they apply to his nibs. Such as:

Bacchus is known as the god of fertility, ritual madness (delirium), freedom to do as one wills (as with the satanic Thelema cult "of the Crowned and Conquering Child"), the harvest (grapes in particular), theater (Trump the thespian plays POTUS on TV!), and wine--or in the case of fussy narcissist Donald Trump, whine. In some cultural references Bacchus is a sibling of Apollo, and as the god of epiphany, Bacchus is "the god that comes" and his "foreignness as an arriving outsider" is an essential part of his cult and his reputation.

So if we cast our fatigued minds back to the 2016 Election, we find the Venus Cycle and goddess Venus' 4-and-8-year predictive relationship with the US Presidential Election cycle. In 2016, "Venus in Sagittarius supports a change to someone 'different'", I wrote then--in other words, election Venus in Sagittarius in 2016 supported the coming of a foreigner, a member of the rival party, an "outsider" who would be victorious over the incumbent party. A Bacchus figure, we might say if we wished.

Now let's allow goddess Venus to lure us back to Trump's natal midpoint picture of Ascendant = Venus-Neptune. Ebertin says of the Venus-Neptune pair (in no particular order per Trump and with a few mild edits):

'an erotic imagination, illusion, a person easily influenced, a dreamy nature, high ideals (when it comes to feminine beauty, at least--jc), a mistaken sense of love, indecision, uncertainty, a seducible character, erotic aberrations, inclination to mysticism (ex: idol worship; the occult--jc), romantic reverie, a poorly developed sense of reality, weakened glandular functions, pathological enlargement of the glands, weakness of the sex organs, lover of beauty and art, mystics, dreamers, visionaries, longing for love, peculiar desires and objectives, an unstable existence and changing occupations, difficult realization of ideals and wishes, awakening from emotional infatuation with awareness of disappointment or disillusionment, wrong ways of love.'

Add Trump's Ascendant for more specific potentials: 'A peculiar disposition with regard to love life, impressionable, lack of good taste, a union with persons of a peculiar disposition, and/or disappointment in love'. (The Combination of Stellar Influences, R. Ebertin.)

Now let's consider the combined energies of the Venus-Neptune pair in the realms of Politics and Business a la Munkasey's Midpoints: Unleashing the Power of the Planets through his helpful inclusion of the Hegelian Dialect used by ivory-towered societal meddlers and chess players of the world for whom we are only the pawns:

"Thesis: Appeals to the ideals of the people; an inflated treasury; use of inflation as a means for controlling or manipulating growth; wealth derived from gas, chemicals, or oil; exaggerates or misstates internal resources.

Antithesis: Scandals concerning the misuse of, or deceptive practices within, the treasury or internal resources; subversives who desire to gain access to finances; spies in the financial branches; monetary fraud; art deception." For Trump I would add, artful deception.

And Munkasey's Venus-Neptune potentials conjunct Trump's natal Ascendant?

"An appreciation of how reality can be altered for your own enjoyment; indulging in another's fantasy for personal gratification; perceptions about the illusions of how matter or form combine in the world."

And so it seems obvious to me that Trump's natal Mercury-Neptune square, a major fantasy-prone factor of misconception and falsehood lurking deep within his psyche, aids and supports his Venusian-Neptunian dreams, imaginings, illusions, and deceptions quite perfectly. Yet on this can we ever agree?

As you know, all royal stars in contact with personal horoscopes contain a caution not to be ignored. Here's A Very Closely Related Post: Will Regulus Assure the Destiny of Donald Trump?.

Jan 21 2019: Lunar Eclipse 'eclipses' US POTUS Sun

Could This Be The Cosmic Blink Anti-Trumpers Are Waiting For?


As you see in the above horoscope set for the White House on January 21, 2019, a Total Lunar Eclipse @00Leo51 will 'eclipse' our US POTUS Sun (Inaugural Sun @00AQ49 on January 20, 2017 = Trump playing president) and transit Saturn, legal eagle, time keeper, and karmic lesson-bringer, will oppose US natal Sun (13Cancer 19 on July 4, 1776) bringing restriction and possibly an ending to some if not all of Trump's Oval Office role playing as America's commander-in-chief, a job he was ill-prepared for but that was the point for those who placed him in that particular position. For all those who placed Trump in charge had to know of his unstable, substandard, know-nothing, compromised, corrupt condition beforehand but they socked it to America anyway. That he was highly suggestible and didn't ask any questions made him the malleable choice especially after being 'groomed' for years to play the role he'd always coveted anyway. Gemini the thespian!

Now it's true that the previous Solar Eclipse @18Leo41 occurred on August 11, 2018 as 'The Tower' Eclipse for its theme of collapse of plans and lifestyles, then rebuild once the dust settles. It's also true that The Great American Eclipse @29Leo (August 21, 2017), a Total eclipse that split America into two halves, North and South, landed by degree directly upon the natal Ascendant of Mr. Trump and activated royal star Regulus and his rising Mars--and you'll remember how he famously took off the safety glasses and looked directly into the eclipse while it was happening like a total buffoon--blindness is said to threaten at a future date). Such a golden Apollo! (Well, if 10:54 am really is his birth time he was born with asteroid Apollo rising.)

Now both solar eclipses affected--affect--him, yes, so the Lunar Eclipse shown above could very well be a third-times-the-charm direct hit to Donald Trump via his role-playing as POTUS or it could be simply a blow to the US presidency itself, its power and authority and not the ending of the amoral Mr. Trump as we've come to know and dislike him. Note that the eclipse perfects only hours after Inauguration 2017's Solar Return 2019 occurs (exact on January 20, 2019 at 11:36:15 pm est with ASC 17Lib57 thus bringing up Trump's 2nd house Stationary Jupiter - exact to the degree plus 30m--17Leo27).

The Pentagon's Progressed New Moon 2017

Did you notice recently that a bi-partisan Senate passed a bill for much higher defense pending worth billions of dollars? The New York Times wrote about it. That's where our health care money went along with funds for other needs of the American populace: lining the pockets of the Pentagon's 'conquest-at-all-costs', 'global cop' perpetrators.

Instead of cutting the over-bloated military budget so that Congress can take care of our needs, they came together to provide Trump a 'win' of several more billions of dollars than he'd asked for! This outrage spurred a peek at the Pentagon's natal horoscope and a check-in on the current secondary progressed (SP) phase of America's military 'death star' and wouldn't you know? Recently the Pentagon had an SP New Moon which perfected on March 22, 2017 at the critical degree of 20Cancer27.

Now using fixed stars in progressions is traditionally a no-no so I apologize for considering that the Pentagon's 2017 SP New Moon at 20 Cancer is significant. But it is the degree of fixed star Castor, one of the dark-light twin stars along with Pollux. Castor key words include sudden fame or loss, crippling of limbs, murder, and mental illness (which perhaps can be stretched to include sufferers of PTSD). These keywords are found in Anthony Louis' book, Horary Plain and Simple.

And in his Encyclopedia of Astrology, Nicholas DeVore adds for Castor: "The mortal one of the heavenly twins; associated with Apollo" (the "sun god", an asteroid/archetype that rises @29Leo45 in the natal chart of Donald Trump who thinks he is one). DeVore also gives a few key words for Castor: violence, sudden fame, honors, followed by disgrace or imprisonment. Rising: weakness, sometimes blindness; injuries to face." Also, you note that 29Leo was the position of The Great American Eclipse of August 21, 2017.

Money, Guns, and a Little Butter

Now astrologers use an SP New Moon to time a new cycle of activity that lasts approximately 28 years or so which apparently shows that the Pentagon and US military generals have no intention of tossing out their world domination plan and Global Cop initiatives--no matter what it costs the American people and no matter how many dire needs of We The People remain -un or -under funded. It's money for Guns over Butter for Pentagon generals and their current POTUS puppet Donald Trump!

Therefore, I shall assert that if America really is as "broke" or is "bankrupt" as some politicians love to assert, We The People can look to the Pentagon, private contractors (mercenaries), and to hidden CIA black ops budgets when we decide to 'follow the money' out Washington's back door.

After all, who can forget Mr. Trump's 2016 Campaign during which he was asked about America's "crushing debt" and how he would 'handle' it while playing POTUS and he responded with, Yeah, So I'll Declare America Bankrupt!? As you know, this financial tactic worked for him personally in the past and he's shown since January 2017 that America is little more than a corporate cash cow for him anyway so...
