Offering to buy Greenland is clear sign that Trump has lost the plot altogether according to the Washington Post. Although evidently wikileaks indicated the USA is highly interested in investing in the resource base of Greenland and in tapping hydrocarbons off the Greenlandic coast.
Greenland is the largest island in the world, an autonomous Danish territory, with a population of 56,000 people living around the coastline. Almost 90% are indigenous Greenlandic Inuit people. It has a limited self-government and its own parliament. More than 80% of the island is covered by an ice cap. Global warming is feared to be causing the ice cover to melt increasingly quickly but has also increased access to its mineral resources. In 1941 the USA occupied Greenland to defend it against invasion by Germany who had already taken over Denmark and handed it back in 1945. Following World War II, the US developed a geopolitical interest in Greenland, and in 1946 offered to buy it from Denmark for $100,000,000. Denmark refused to sell.
Greenland was granted home rule on 1 May 1979 which gives a Taurus Sun trine Saturn in Virgo; with Mars in Aries opposition Pluto. The Greenland Pluto is exactly conjunct Trump’s 2nd house Jupiter – so it clearly sets his cash register bells ringing. The Greenland Neptune opposes his Sun sending him off into an Aladdin’s Cave dreamworld of endless wealth.
His astrocartography put his Sun MC line through the middle of Greenland which will spark off his ambitions – not that he’d want to park himself in an igloo, but perhaps when climate change has done its maximum damage he could build a holiday resort where the ice cap used to be.
His relationship chart with Greenland 1979 has an affectionate composite Sun Venus in an adventurous and expansive square to Jupiter Uranus. Clearly it sets his juices racing. Though it ain’t ever going to happen.
