It’s certainly an epoch for rank outsiders to sail home as winners. Last July Donald Trump was given a 1% chance of getting the Republican nomination and here we are – the unthinkable has to be thought.
The Daily Beast (admittedly biased) said he acted like a loser after the Indiana win, which cemented him as the GOP nominee, was announced. Even he didn’t expect to win when he set out and the question is – does he actually want it? He liked fighting as the outsider but having to act like a grown-up insider may be less palatable.
May was always the month when it would start to get more edgy and erratic for him. He has tr Uranus square his Mars/Uranus midpoint from May 8th to 28th; and then tr Uranus square his Saturn and Mars/North node from then till June 24th; after which he has tr Uranus square Sun/Mars and Venus/Saturn till early September. Then these influences reverse till late October. All of them are high-tension, irritable, stressful and insecure, prone to outbursts and impulse decisions and comments.
I was wondering on the off chance he won in November whether it would be like JFK who never expected to win and ended up in a panic since he’d been so busy fighting he hadn’t given running a government much thought. But JFK’s Solar Return for that year has Jupiter in the 10th, generally a success marker.
Trumps’ Solar Return from this June is riddled with strained quincunxes and Yods – with Uranus MC sextile Sun Venus inconjunct a 4th house Mars; and a wide Yod of Mars sextile North Node inconjunct Uranus MC. Plus Pluto in the 6th house of health. So the pressure will be getting to him.
On the other hand he does have his Solar Arc Sun crossing his Ascendant boosting his profile enormously from now onwards; with tr Pluto square the conjunction of his Solar Arc Pluto to Jupiter right through till the Inauguration and beyond. Plus his Solar Arc Uranus squaring his Midheaven. So the astrology is clear that his life is changing direction radically no matter what happens.
The fight with Hillary Clinton, presuming she continues to garner votes, will be nasty. Their relationship chart has an eye-boggling composite Mars conjunct Sun on one side and Pluto on the other with Pluto conjunct Saturn – and that is bitter hostility. With a composite Moon (HC on 8am BT) opposition Saturn Pluto square Jupiter which is bleak chill and a fight for the upper hand.
HC’s Uranus is conjunct his Sun; and her determined Mars Pluto in Leo is conjunct his 12th house Pluto – so it’ll get underhand.
He’ll be an inflammatory runner (already has been) given that his Gemini Sun is conjunct the USA 1776 Mars; his Saturn in Cancer is conjunct the USA Mercury and opposition the USA Pluto so causing gloom and resentment. His Neptune squares the USA Venus Jupiter – promising much but slippery. That added to his Jupiter conjunct the USA Saturn square USA Sun – fills out a picture of a candidate who is selling the hope of making America great again.
The Trump/USA relationship chart has a powerful and controlling composite Sun trine Pluto but sextiling onto Saturn hints at a less than rapturous match. The composite Moon (USA 11am) opposes Mars – so angry women which makes sense given his contemptuous and demeaning comments to date which are only likely to worsen when he faces Hillary as his main rival.
Trump’s adviser has suggested that UK PM David Cameron apologise for calling him ‘divisive, stupid and wrong’ last December. That relationship is, if anything, worse than Hillary’s with Trump. A composite Mars Pluto conjunct Sun all square Saturn – is implacable dislike. There would be a sugar-coating of faux-charm from a composite Venus Mercury Jupiter but it wouldn’t extend very far.
