Senator Bob Corker’s anxiety about Trumpian lack of self-control leading to an accidental third World War over North Korea is all the more relevant given his chairmanship of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and his closeness to Rex Tillerson. Tillerson has already been slapped down by Trump over NK, in a way which William Hague, former UK Foreign Secretary, said would have compelled him to hand in his resignation.
It also does not bode well for the Great Tax Change strategy which is the upcoming attempt to put at least one notch on the Trump Presidential belt. The GOP are increasingly restive about the president and split amongst themselves between the ‘not enough’ and ‘too much’ camps, as was the case over the Obamacare repeal.
Corker, 24 August 1952, SC, is a Sun Virgo with the generational Saturn Neptune in Libra square Uranus; but what marks his chart out is Jupiter in Taurus opposition Mars in Scorpio square Pluto – which is uber-determined, stubborn, confident and quite controlling. That T square sits with Corker’s Jupiter on Trump’s MC, his Mars on T’s IC and his Pluto conjunct T’s Mars in Leo. Jupiter on the other’s MC can indicate a desire to help the MC individual to acquire a sense of cultural and ethical responsibility in their work. His Mars on Trump’s IC will provoke angry and hurt responses about his inconsiderate behaviour. And the Pluto Mars clash will bring hostile and extreme reactions as Trump overreacts to attempts to coerce or manipulate him.
Their relationship chart has most notably an exact composite Mars Neptune conjunction so it’s a one-side-wins and the other-side-feels-crushed scenario.
There are GOP attempts to quieten Corker down at the moment, despite the fact that he’s clearly voicing widely shared feelings – Trump lies, the White House is an adult-day centre with those close trying to contain Trump, and everyone knows it. Where their relationship chart shows a real blow-up is late March 2018. Corker himself is powering ahead from February with tr Pluto trine his Jupiter, so he won’t be holding back.
The Trump relationship charts with both Republican Party charts, is downbeat now, worse from late October through November; with an escalation of conflict from March 2018 onwards and a chance of a complete rupture by mid 2018 onwards.
