On June 26 this year I wrote a short post about the possible consequences of the Capricorn Lunar Eclipse of July 16/17 for Donald Trump. If interested here it is.
That post came about because of an ominous conjunction/opposition between the degrees of Sun and Moon at the time of the Eclipse and Trump’s Venus-Saturn conjunction in Cancer. This connection appeared to me even more relevant because the 23rd degree of Capricorn happens to be also close to the degree of the long awaited conjunction of Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, on January 13 2020. That alignment in fact, which will include the transiting Sun in Capricorn on the day, will be opposing Trump’s Venus-Saturn conjunction as well. On top of the above the transiting Saturn was just separating in retrogradation from square angle to Trump’s Jupiter. This transit is still active, the last pass occurring on November 25. Transiting Chiron was also in opposition to Trump’s Natal Chiron, transit that will remain active until well into 2020.
Below are the Horoscopes in question.
At the time I did find the Eclipse significant for Trump because Mueller III was to testify to congress on the same day of the Eclipse, fact that seemed to spell trouble for Trump. As we all know now Mueller’s testimony was postponed to July 24 and turned out to be a disappointment for the American president’s detractors. Trump in fact used it afterward to his political advantage in order to discredit the whole two years investigation about his presidential campaign collusion with Russian hackers.
We know now about the damning phone call Trump made to the new president of Ukraine, with a request to dig dirt on Joe Biden, one of Trump’s main democratic opponents in the 2020 Presidential Election. That phone call happened on July 25, a day after the Mueller’s testimony. And previous to this communication, now the subject of the impending impeachment inquiry, on July 18, just two days past the Lunar Eclipse, Trump decided to withdrew the army aid deal with Ukraine ! This knowledge changes things again in a big way, reminding us that the effects of Eclipses are far reaching and unpredictable.
In my reading of astrological facts the above transits, the events that passed in July 2019 as well as the transits coming early in the new year all spell huge trouble for the Trump’s presidency, perhaps the end of this man’s political career. Saturn’s transits are always connected in Astrology with lessons to be learnt, limitations to be endured, periods of strife and misfortune, when things are difficult on many fronts. Pluto’s transits, on the other hand, represent period of endings, power conflict, enmity, trauma, when life presents us with ultimate and often extreme challenges. The two planets together in opposition to Trump’s Saturn and Venus indicate a make or break situation for this individual, a karmic time of reckoning, a growing up, psychologically maturing period that could change his life and career for ever.
Donal Trump’s Progressed Virgo New Moon,
finally eating humble pie ?
Very recently, just on September 16 2019, Trump’s Progressed Moon and Sun united, a once in thirty years pivotal event in Astrology, what is known as a Progressed New Moon. This conjunction occurred on the third degree of humble Virgo and in Trump’s First Natal House.
On August 12 the whistleblower sent the letter to the heads of the senate and house intelligence committee. This document was made public in the last week of September. And an edited report of the phone call was released by the White House on September 25.
A Progressed New Moon, like all New Moon, in real time or progressed time, is a symbol of new beginning, often a watershed in the life of the individual, starting a new progressed evolutionary cycle of thirty years. Happening at this crucial time in Donal Trump’s presidential tenure this event spells a change in the status quo that, compounded with the radical transits discussed earlier, could be indeed of great significance.
