Trump’s transits from November 2017 until April 2018

 

Most important is the Uranus transit in square to the Venus-Saturn conjunction.  Venus rules his career sign and Saturn that of his servants. I also mention the role of Eris and Pallas Athena which on their own would not be enough to correlate with the mess he finds himself in but being in close proximity to where Uranus is transiting – they are likely to intensify the problem.

 

 

Full Moon November 3-4, 2017

 

 

The exact moment of this full Moon will happen at 9.53 pm Pacific Daylight time. This means it will be exact at 12.53 am of November 4th. In the chart picture below you see the exact full moon depicted with the Sun at 11.57 Scorpio and the Moon at 11.57 Taurus. If you have planets near this degree of fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Aquarius and Scorpio-) it means today and tomorrow are likely to challenge your emotional balance.

The full moon raises the emotional pitch of situations and there tend to be more ups and downs. Periods of great clarity are possible but also swaths of time when confusion and low energy are prevalent. All of this corresponds to Friday the 3d of November,  and Saturday the 4th.

Vanity fair article on Trump

 

Gabriel Sherman’s November 1, 2017 article about Trump and his administration begins with:

 

Until now, Robert Mueller has haunted Donald Trump’sWhite House as a hovering, mostly unseen menace. But by securing indictments of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates,and a surprise guilty plea from foreign policy adviser George Papadopoulos, Mueller announced loudly that the Russia investigation poses an existential threat to the president. “Here’s what Manafort’s indictment tells me: Mueller is going to go over every financial dealing of Jared Kushner and the Trump Organization,” said former Trump campaign aide Sam Nunberg. “Trump is at 33 percent in Gallup. You can’t go any lower. He’s fucked.”

 

I’m afraid I have to concur with the sentiment expressed at the end of this first paragraph. If the so called logical signs are ominous, the astrological panorama is anything from threatening to disastrous. And so I say in this video…..

Saturn

 

A very important force in the planetary array, this planet is often the most important natal point,  and the cycles of Saturn are extremely important toward understanding how to best align oneself with our life circumstances. Connections to timekeeping, accountability, success or failure, getting things done, wisdom from experience and still much more–associate to this planet,  so understanding how it works and learning to express it well-becomes critical if one hopes to do well in life.

 

Where is it in your chart when you were born?  What relationship(s) to other natal planets does it make?

 

Where has it been in the past? What is it doing now?  Where will it go next?

 

Trump’s Halloween 2017

 

Halloween 2017 is the start of a difficult period that will last until the spring of 2018. The first week or so will be particularly interesting as this video explains:

 

The astrology of posture

 

In astrology, posture, a straight-upright spine is most closely associated to Saturn. The strength and character that results is Sun ruled. This is an example of using the power of Saturn-proactively in a very intelligent and positive way. In fact, one could go further and say that there is no better work than striving to be upright.  This will not only immediately connect one to confidence and  strength but also to purpose. Saturn acting in it’s best and most positive role, as a minister to the Sun.

Saturn transiting through Sagittarius

 

Saturn transits through Sagittarius from December 24, 2014 until June 14, 2015 and from September 17, 2015 until December 19, 2017. This puts pressure on those born in Sagittarius, Pisces, Gemini and Virgo. The earlier you are born in each sign, the greater the pressure would have been during the early part of the transit. The later, the more you are affected in the later stages. So for example someone born in the early days of those four signs would have felt the energy of Saturn in late 2014 and into the summer of 2015 and then again in the fall of 2015. If on the other hand you are born in the last third of these signs, 2017 becomes the pressure period. The good thing about Saturn pressure is that it often leads to growth and maturity. The bad is that it can be quite challenging. From December 19 onward, it will be affecting the cardinal signs, Capricorn, Aries, Cancer and Libra.

 

Trump’s lunar triggers

 

Donald Trump’s chart featured transiting Saturn conjoining his natal Moon and opposite his natal Sun from early July until the end of October 2017. By sign this alignment has been in play since 2015  but here we are referring to a block of time during which the degree correlations are tighter and therefore more intense. In the brief Audio below I explain how the green/yellow graphic displays weekly lunar triggers that correlate with days and times of greatest intensity.
