Trump is about to back away from his policy of separating children from immigrant parents, not out of sentiment but because the backlash from lawmakers, activists, religious leaders and former first ladies was too great.
His Term chart does have an 8th house emotionally-damped-down Saturn in an unkind and can-be-downright-cruel square to Mars. The Term Scorpio Moon is exactly square the Mars/Saturn midpoint so women and children will come into the Mars Saturn line of fire. There’s also a focal point Pluto squaring onto Uranus and Jupiter, which is control-freaky, contemptuous of those deemed weaker or inferior (amongst other things).
Trump’s Solar Arc Uranus is now exact exact on the conjunction to his Mars for another explosive scandal – in an endless line so long it’s tricky to keep up. His Saturn on his birth chart is conjunct his Sun/Mars midpoint and his Pluto conjunct his Mars/Saturn – so it’s a repeating pattern of a) love of the military/shock and awe as long as he’s not actually involved personally; and b) a harsh streak of cruelty in his character as well as a tendency to attract disasters.
What the furore made me think of, and it’s not a good augury for 2019, is the repressive Saturn Pluto conjunction up and coming. It tramps all over weakness and causes hardship and deprivation. A survival of the fittest obstacle course.
Stephen Miller, a senior policy advisor, is deemed to have been the driving force behind the immigration debacle. Born 23 August 1985 4.53pm Santa Monica, CA, he’s a serious control-freak and driven by frankly unbalanced views. He has an 8th house Mars and Sun with his Sun trine a 12th house Neptune trine IC, formed into a Kite by IC opposition Pluto MC. His Sun is square his Neptune/Pluto midpoint which may be helpful for psychics and visionaries but not for politicians.
He looks confident enough for a while ahead but tr Uranus opposing his Pluto from July onwards may rock his boat and he’s in some turmoil through 2019 and heading into a lower profile phase from late 2019.
His relationship chart with Trump is being undermined by tr Neptune right through the rest of this year and some of next. Trump hates backing off and since he’s never to blame and will at some point down the road be looking for a scapegoat.
