Is Gordon Sondland Trump’s astrological Nemesis?

'Nemesis' by Alfred Rethel

‘Nemesis’ by Alfred Rethel. Nemesis is the ancient Greek Goddess who enacts retribution against those who succumb to hubris (arrogance before the Gods). Another name for her is Adrasteia, meaning ‘the inescapable’.

After reading few reports on today Gordon Sondland’s deposition at Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry, I became curious about this individual astrological connection to Trump. More than any other witnesses so far his deposition has in fact drawn a direct line between Trump and the unusual request of publicizing an investigation on Trump’s most feared political rival, Joe Biden, to up Trump’s chances to beat Biden at the 2020 presidential elections.

When I juxtaposed the two men Natal Charts I saw at a glance that indeed this guy could prove to be Trump’s nemesis. Below is, first, Gordon Sondland’s Birth Chart and, under it, the same Chart around Trump Birth Chart. Note that Sondland’s Chart, lacking a birth time, has been calculated for the local sunrise of his day of birth.

Apart from the significant hard aspects I’ll describe the two men also share a number of positive ones, in particular those involving Venus and Jupiter, signifying a relationship that could prove advantageous to both parties in the area of business and mentor-ship. Sondland’s Venus is in sextile (positive aspect) to Trump’ Uranus and Jupiter (which are in positive aspect to each other in Trump’s Birth Chart), while his Jupiter is in sextile to Trump’s Venus, so that Venus and Jupiter are connected twice in the two Charts. Sondland’s Sun is also in sextile to Trump’s Mid-Heaven, angle that has to do with career. So far so good, the relationship could have been a fortunate one, benefiting both parties. The rest of the mutual aspects though show another side of the picture, one that could easily sour the relationship.

In this respect the first thing that would jump at any astrologer’s attention is the close alignment of Sondland’s Pluto in late Leo to Trump Ascendant in late Leo. This aspect is very close, only one degree apart, and touches not just Trump’s Ascendant but also Regulus, the alpha star of Leo constellation which was rising at the time of the President’s birth. For an explanation of Regulus possible influence on Trump’s destiny, please navigate to my post on the subject HERE. Furthermore Sondland’s Pluto opposes exactly Trump’s Part of Fortune, a point in the Horoscope which has to do with the individual potential for well-being and happiness.

As students of Astrology must know Pluto’s mutual aspects can have an intensely negative effect on relationships, creating power struggles and enmity, often associated with karmic stuff, addressing of wrong doing and retribution.

Furthermore Sondland’s Mars (in Leo like Trump’s Mars) happens also to be widely aligned to Trump’s Pluto, a difficult combination to say the least, fostering fierce competitiveness and all sorts of extremes. There is even a possibility of danger with aggressive enactment (Mars) of long held but hidden resentments (Pluto) between the individuals involved; a possibly explosive combination. To add to the above Sondland’s Mercury and Uranus (conjunct in Leo in his Birth Chart) are also widely conjunct Trump’s Pluto, making the plutonian connection even stronger and more problematic.

To add to the Pluto’s possible pitfalls Sondland’s Sun degree in Cancer is the same as Trump’s Saturn and not far from his Venus’ degree. When two individuals share a Saturn-Sun-Venus connection (in this instance an extremely strong one) there is a life lesson to be learnt, restrictions and limitations to be endured. It is Sondland here that view and experience Trump as an authority figure, the one who makes the rules. And, apart from any positive or negative connotations, the alignment of Sun, Venus and Saturn makes the relationship more serious and important, one that will have enduring repercussions and hopefully also help to further the psychological maturity of both parties.

What I find of even greater interest here is the fact that the degree of the Sondland-Trump Sun-Saturn-Venus alignment in Cancer is very close to the degree of the long awaited Saturn-Pluto conjunction in the opposite Sign of Capricorn. This will become exact on January 12/13 2020. The same degrees were also highlighted by the Lunar Eclipse on July 16 this year, around the time Trump decided to freeze the military aid to Ukraine and not far from the now notorious Trump’s phone call to the Ukrainian President, starting the whole impeachment conundrum. Knowing the lasting and far-reaching effects of Eclipses, when aligned to important points in the Birth Chart, it is not surprising to see the effects of that cosmic event spilling all over the news at this time.

Before I publish this post I want to remark that, as the juxtaposed Charts clearly show, many of the alignments between Sondland and Trump’s planets happen in the latter Twelfth House, the area that has to do with unavoidable karma, as well as thoughts and actions that can undo the individual conscious will, veering his/her life toward the inevitable rather than one’s desires and wishes.

Trump-Astrology: the far reaching effects of Eclipses, a Progressed Virgo New Moon

Sad Trump

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.
