Tantrum Trump’s lack of inhibition about spraying racist insults around then flat denying he said what he said in the face of corroboration by others, and blaming Barack Obama for a GW Bush decision on moving the London US Embassy (for reasons of security and space), does suggest he’s losing the plot at a rate of knots. And he’s still five months away from the over-reactive Solar Arc Uranus conjunct his Mars which will test his nerves and self-esteem, usually provoking reckless behaviour; and within two weeks his Progressed Moon will conjunct his 12th house Pluto, which won’t improve his joie de vivre either.
He does have an obsessive ‘thing’ about Obama and seems to decide policy priorities in terms of whatever will unpick Obama’s legacy, whether it is right, wrong or indifferent. Wrong colour, scandal-free eight years, jubilant crowd-filled Inaugurations – it grinds deep into the warped Trump soul (if he has one) and triggers his petty jealousies and prejudices.
Admittedly their charts are not well-matched. Obama’s 8th house, hard-working Mars in Virgo squares Trump’s Sun and Moon and Uranus; Obama’s reforming Uranus is conjunct Trump’s bombastic and blingy Mars in Leo; and worst of all Obama’s Leo Sun is conjunct Trump’s broodingly dark (and shame-filled) 12th house Pluto.
Their relationship chart has a suspicion-ridden composite Saturn opposition Neptune square a can’t-exist-in-the-same-space Uranus. Plus an emotionally overheated composite Moon opposition Mars in a jousting square to Jupiter. It’s not going to improve through the next two or three years.
Trump was so looking forward to a full state visit to London – Royals on the tarmac to greet him, golden carriage down the Mall, state banquets, weekend with HM at Windsor or Sandringham. But with Pluto conjunct the MC when his chart is relocated to London it was always going to be an accident-prone region for him. HM Queen would have coped with icy aplomb having seen off a fair few appalling visiting heads of state, but he couldn’t risk the rotten eggs. I doubt he’ll ever make it.
