For an aide-memoire of Trump’s star-crossed path of the moment, here’s a rerun of an earlier post. The Total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius tomorrow, the day of the Electoral College is conjunct Trump’s Moon and opposition his Sun. It is also opposition the USA Mars in Gemini so will bring a combative mood with arguments flaring and compromise won’t be the mood of the country.
Where Trump is concerned, an Eclipse conjunct his Moon will test the foundations on which his life has been built with his public image coming under scrutiny. If he’s not standing on solid ground and is hanging on to old habit patterns it could all crumble to dust. An Eclipse opposition his Sun indicates a major turning point and crisis, which will force him to face that he is not always right. If he fights the need for change it will leave him kicking and screaming.
Trump’s chart detail: Tr Pluto from November 20th till December 26th will oppose his Mars/Node for trapped and enraging setbacks, with the discouraging uphill-slog of tr Pluto opposing his Saturn at the same time. Then 26 December to 27 January he has more tantrum-inducing aggravations from tr Pluto opposition his Sun/Mars midpoint; his poisonous-rhetoric and lying Mercury/Pluto; and his wounded Venus/Saturn midpoint. He’ll be like a cornered cobra. His Solar Arc Saturn will also within weeks be on the degree of the conjunction to his 2nd house Neptune, a harbinger of the financial meltdown to come later in 2021.
Joe Biden, birth time being accurate, loses one of his two panicked Neptune transits to separate Mars midpoints after November 20th. The other trails on until 26th January. He’ll experience an upheaval from tr Uranus square his Pluto from 18th November to 19 December which can go either way – as with Netanyahu into power – or it will bring a rocky ride. He looks marginally upbeat with tr Pluto trine his Mercury/Jupiter midpoint November 20th to December 26th. And very definitely looking enthusiastic and confident from January 26th to late February with tr Pluto opposition his Jupiter; and that successful phase rolls on through till August with tr Pluto trine his Sun/Jupiter and Venus/Jupiter, plus tr Uranus square his Jupiter/Node across mid year and on. Whatever happens he looks in better spirits in 2021/22 with the exception of an insecure tr Uranus opposition his Mars late May on and off for a year.
This Solar Eclipse is in a Saros Series that Bernadette Brady says has a strong emotional intensity and acute frustration, a sense of fatedness and not being in control. Avoid rash action until it settles down.
December does look extremely fraught and bad-tempered in general for everyone with the final Mars in Aries square Pluto running to the 23rd, which won’t be fun. Mars moves out of its long stint in Aries where it has been causing havoc for some months on January 6th. But just to be un-useful it moves into Taurus and immediately rattles up Mercury in Aquarius, squares Saturn and is conjunct Uranus so January won’t be a peaceful month.
The USA chart and Eclipses: The Lunar Eclipse on 30 November at 8 degrees Gemini Moon/Sagittarius Sun will collide with the USA’s Uranus in Gemini which may spring a few surprises, spark off a few rebellions and wild claims. Mishandled Uranus on an Eclipse can limit freedom, though there is the potential for taking a new road. That Lunar Eclipse in addition to having the see-saw Full Moon also has a Uranus opposition Uranus and a frustrated Mars square Pluto – so the divisiveness of recent times won’t have settled much.
Apart from the Eclipses the USA chart also has a blocked tr Saturn conjunct Pluto November 14th to 26th which will be discouraging. Tr Uranus square the Leo Node 21 December to 8 February 2021, which may be more significant than it sounds since the US ‘leadership’ Leo Node does get rattled easily, viz tr Neptune in opposition for 9/11.
There’s also a return of the toxic-rhetoric and hostile-debate tr Pluto opposition the USA Mercury 26 December to 27 January 2021 (repeating later in the year).
Will Trump refuse to leave the White House? Given his past record anything is possible,
Trump and Failure: Past experience of how Trump faces losing battles are scary and instructive. Chicago Trump Hotel ran into huge debts in 2008, which for most would have meant ruin. But he counter-sued the lender Deutsche Bank for “predatory lending practices” and sought $3 billion in damages. He was then forgiven $270 million worth of debt.
In 1973 he slammed back at the US government over its charges that Trump’s rental properties had racial discriminatory practices and counter-sued them for $100 million. Two years later it was settled in private with an agreement that the Trump properties change their practices.
He follows Roy Cohn, his early mentor’s diktat – Attack, Don’t Settle, Never Apologize.
In the unlikely event of him fleeing abroad or more likely starting up financial/business connections abroad his astro-cartography indicates:
Rio de Janeiro, Brazil has his Sun Midheaven line directly through it – President Bolsonaro might come in handy.
Otherwise the Middle East is reasonably good with Jupiter in his 10th there and much secret goings on from the 8th with Pluto, Venus, Saturn there. More the Gulf States than Saudi Arabia. But his super success Jupiter Midheaven line goes through Kazakhstan (Prince Andrew’s chums) and Uzbekistan.
Trump won’t be too cosy with Mohamed bin Salman of Saudi in 2021 and even Jared is facing a few hiccups there after mid year.
