Mr. Trump was recently nominated as a presidential
candidate by the Republican Party at the Republican National Convention in
Cleveland, Ohio. Based on information
obtained from Astro-data Bank (Astro.Com) with Rodden rating AA, Mr.
Trump's birth details
Date: June 14, 1946
Time: 10:54 AM (EDT)
Place: Jamaica, New York (40N41, 73W48)
This analysis is based on
the sidereal (Constellation based) zodiac system with Placidus house division, and the
method of interpretation is mostly according to Vedic astrology.
His sidereal natal chart is shown below.
was fittingly born under Leo ascendant (rising sign) as a very
independent minded person with heavy chips on shoulder, with lot of fire
and charismatic personality. The ascendant ruler Taurus Sun occupies the tenth
house, the house of profession, business, politics, fame and prestige, and thus,
making him a person whose entire life revolves around the sole goal of
accumulating wealth. The tenth house cusp ruler, Cancer Venus, occupies
the 11th house, potentially assuring him success in any business endeavors he
addition, the most striking planetary configuration in this chart is the
placement of the lunar nodes, Rahu and Ketu. Mr. Trump was born just a few
hours prior to the beginning of a total lunar eclipse. If he were born
during the eclipse period, the story would be entirely different and I wouldn't
be writing about him. And also, he was born during late morning when the
Moon was not visible, minimizing the direct influence of the eclipse.
he was born close to the eclipse. As a result, the first house ruler Sun
conjuncts the north lunar node Rahu in the tenth house and the 12th house ruler
Moon conjuncts Ketu in the fourth house. Since the materialistic Rahu
loves the tenth house, Rahu in the tenth house with a very powerful Sun (being
the ruler of the first house, yogakaraka planet) makes him
extraordinarily egoist and a wealthy professional. Furthermore, the Taurus
Uranus is with in three degrees with Rahu in the tenth house, providing him with
possibility of becoming the leader of the USA since Uranus very closely
represents the characteristics of USA.
interesting note the presence of Rahu-Uranus conjunction in both President
George W Bush and Barack Obama's natal chart. Thus, Rahu-Uranus conjunction may
be used as one of the litmus-tests to confirm a potential of becoming the
president of the USA. Therefore, it's not surprising (although it was
totally unexpected) that he became the presidential nominee of the Republican
Party in July 2016.
my opinion, typically, the axis along which the lunar nodes lie in a natal
chart, defines the axis of the major challenges in life for that person.
Thus, for Mr. Trump that axis lies through the 4th-10th house. It is clearly
evident from his life experiences that most of the ups and downs that he
experienced in his life dealt with the 4th house (real estate, home, house) and
the 10th house (profession, business, politics, etc.,). Also, Sun
(Showmanship) being in Taurus ruled by Venus (celebrity) in the 10th house and
the 10th house ruler Venus in the 11th house (famous celebrity) makes him a
celebrity. However, according to Vedic astrology, if the first house ruler
conjuncts Rahu, then typically person has a character flaw, and invariably this
flaw eventually brings the person down. In Mr. Trump's case the first
house ruler Sun conjuncts Rahu in the 10th house with in three degrees, and
therefore despite Rahu's favorable position in the tenth house and in Taurus
sign, Mr. Trump is likely to do himself in and bring himself down.
important planetary configurations in his chart include, the placement of Virgo
(material wealth) Jupiter (5th, 8th and the 9th house ruler) in the second house
making him a person born in a large, rich and well to do family, and blessed
with wonderful children and lucky! The
4th house ruler, Leo Mars in the 12th house means he is stubborn and loves being
Sidereal Natal Chart of Donald J Trump
Since Mr. Trump was born just before an eclipse,
occurrences of eclipses (though they last few hours at the most) are usually
challenging for him, especially with respect to his 10th house activities
(professional, political and business). A total solar eclipse will be
occurring on September 1 (9:06 GMT). Although it is not going to be
visible in the United States, (and therefore, it's not going to be very
intensive for him) it may leave its mark on him as it occurs along the sidereal
Leo-Aquarius axis with Sun and Rahu in Leo.
As of now, I haven't had a
chance to work on democratic party's presidential nominee, Hillary
Clinton. For Secretary Clinton, there appears to have confusion with
regard to her birth time (8:02 AM versus 8:00 PM), and I need to figure out
which time to choose as the basis for her natal chart and the predictions. If
anybody has her verified birth time, I would certainly appreciate receiving
it. Next month, I will provide you with my detailed analysis of both
nominees' charts and the subsequent presidential election prediction.
sidereal Virgo ingress......
August 10, Jupiter leaves (sidereal) Leo and enters the next zodiac sign, Virgo.
Jupiter's transit from one zodiac sign to the next occurs, on average, once a
year. Virgo being an earth and mutable sign ruled by Mercury, Jupiter in Virgo has
a tendency to enhance material prosperity of those who have well placed and
connected Mercury and Jupiter in their birth charts while others may
experience their prosperity increase or diminish based on the planetary
configuration in their natal charts. In general, transit of Jupiter in the earth
sign Virgo is about positive from the wealth accumulation standpoint. For one thing material prosperity around the
world is likely to
be expand. (It must be noted that despite Jupiter's positive influence on world
material prosperity, effects of other planets should also be taken into account to
assess the net result or effect). In addition, the influence of entrepreneurs,
publishers, and people involved in communication industry such as internet will shape the future direction of our social evolution
through the material, philosophical and spiritual debate. In general, the
Virgo Jupiter is known to be responsible for world material and wealth expansion. So from that
perspective expect some positive economic changes during this period and welcome
the Jupiter's entry in Virgo.
individual levels, for those who have dominant Jupiter in their birth charts and
have Capricorn, Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, or Pisces as their natal ninefold
ascendant are likely to experience a very positive twelve months period
beginning August 10.
transit of Mars in Scorpio......
planet Mars entered
the sidereal zodiac sign Scorpio on February 20. While in
Scorpio, it turned
retrograde on April 18. With its
retrograde motion it went back in Libra on June 18. It
became direct in Libra on June 30 and then with it's direct
motion it re-entered Scorpio on July 11. It will remain in Scorpio until September 18.
Thus, except for June 18- July 11, Mars occupies Scorpio from February
20 through September 18. Saturn, being in Scorpio all
through 2016, conjuncts Mars with one degree orb during August
Scorpio being a water and fixed sign
ruled by Mars, it becomes extremely challenging for Scorpio
resident Saturn when Mars is in Scorpio. Because by nature,
Mars and Saturn do not complement each other, when Mars dominates
(being the ruler of Scorpio) Saturn is naturally going to feel
totally out of place in Scorpio. Furthermore, because
Scorpio is a water (emotional) sign, Saturn in Scorpio feels
suffocated, withdrawn and paralyzed. Due
to the presence of Mars, Saturn is very likely to go off track and
potentially become self-destructive.
As a result of this challenging
combination of Saturn and Mars in Scorpio, February 20 through
September 18 will be filled with undesirable activities that will
affect not only the Middle-East but the entire world. Some of the
manifestations of this conjunction are: terrorism, ongoing
barbaric activities, senseless killings, persecutions, pain and
suffering, violence, wars and intolerable and tragic situations
for those who cannot defend themselves. In the United States, the
Republican Party will go through a dramatic and painful experience
since Saturn represents conservative principles. Financial
markets, especially oil and energy-related markets will exhibit
tremendous volatility. Natural calamities, including extreme
weather conditions, abnormal weather patterns, earthquakes of
significant magnitude, wildfires, hurricanes, snow storms etc.,
are likely to occur more frequently. Those who are born with the
Scorpio as ascendant or with Moon in Scorpio are likely to
experience difficult period filled with challenges; but the very
same experience will likely to provide them with the opportunity
to transform their lives in a positive way (self-discovery).
enters sidereal Aries ........
of the important planetary events of 2016 is the transit of the modern planet
Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. Uranus entered sidereal Aries on June 24, and it will stay there till September 4
before it returns to Pisces due to its retrograde motion. It will
station in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then will return to Aries, and
will stay in Aries for the next seven years or so.
Although it's going to be in
a short while (June 24 - Sept 4) before it returns to Aries next year, Uranus being the planet
of change will certainly affect the matters related to Aries in a big way. Aries
being the fire and cardinal sign, which is very suitable for
independent, ambitious, energetic, impulsive and crazy Uranus, the changes in
world political landscape is going to be
tremendously influenced by Uranus's transit in Aries. The people who are most
affected by this transit are military personnel, business
leaders and political leaders. In scientific and
technological areas expect a lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will
find their way into innovations and discoveries. The
scientific and technological growth rate will rise at a very rapid pace. A
new wave of world political and corporation leaders with their new perspectives on
world order will certainly
transform our world in next 6-7 years to a new level to which we must adjust to.
Since the characteristics of Uranus are closely tied with
that of the United States as a country, I wouldn't be
surprised if the both democratic and republican presidential nominees go
through a painful process of conducting their campaign and may
be faced with unwanted surprises at least until September 4.
individual level for those who have Aries ninefold ascendant should get ready
for a brand new cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Uranus is
a dominant planet in their birth charts. The changes that might occur would be
sudden and would deal with pretty much all aspects of life including marriage,
profession, surroundings, common perceptions and beliefs, and the way of living.
I don’t put a lot of stalk in the chart of a country since before the
inception time of the chart the land existed. Instead, I look at the
characteristics of the zodiac signs and planets associated with that land
and the planetary transits.
my opinion, UK is very closely tied with the sign Aries, a cardinal and
fiery sign ruled my mighty Mars, and where Sun gets exalted. This is
clearly reflected in the way Briton dominated the world in last few
Mars in sidereal Scorpio with Saturn…(read below about transit of Mars in
Scorpio) not a very desirable combination for UK. However, Uranus in
Aries could be a spark of brilliance. Uranus being very independent and Aries
(ruled by Mars)
being extremely independent sign…this combination may produce very
positive for UK. (read below about the Uranus transit in Aries). But
Uranus being whimsical and
as it constantly demands change (therefore
would be very interesting to watch events unfolding during June 24 -
September 4 in UK. Because Uranus returns to sidereal Pisces after
Sept 4 and stays in Pisces till April 6, a possibility of reversal of Brexit
(which may very well be short lived) exists! Let
us see how Briton evolves during next few months. It will be a glimpse
or indication of what to come in the following 6-7 years for UK.
President Obama and his challenges......
President Obama's operating planets
(the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be
Sun. In addition, until August 20, 2016, Mars,
Jupiter and Saturn remain to be operating planets for
him. After August 20, Moon joins Mercury and Sun as an operating
planet for him.
During August, Mercury stays in sidereal Leo (the first house of his progressive
chart) till August 18, then it enters Virgo (the second house of his
progressive chart) and remains in Virgo till the end of the month.
Mercury becomes retrograde on the last of the month.
Until Aug 18, the unfavorable first house Mercury
means, he will continue to have difficult time in staying focused and
avoiding the wrong company of people. As a result it will
be a very stressful period for him. After August 18, however,
the second house Mercury will provide him the
opportunity to be successful in effectively governing the
Sun is presently transiting through the
unfavorable twelfth house of his progressive chart till August
15. And then
for the remaining
part of the month, through yet another unfavorable house (the
first house) of his progressive chart. As a result, for
the entire month, from Sun's transit standpoint, he
is likely to face with disappointment, delays, mental stress
and defeat in governing the country.
transits through Scorpio (the unfavorable fourth house of his progressive chart)
until August 20. Therefore, he will continue to find himself in a swirl of
domestic challenges with a diminishing degree of success in
dealing with them till Aug 20.
is favorable for him till August 10. This period will be a bright
spot for him to be successful until August 10. Afterwards till
Aug 20, he will still be successful but to a lesser degree.
retrograde Saturn being in the fourth of house of his progressive chart, one
of the prominent activities of his presidency will be the Homeland
Security. He will be occupied fulltime in dealing with homeland
security issues till August 20.
August 20, due to the Moon's influence as an operating planet
and Moon being wonderfully placed in his natal chart, he will
finally return to his normal rhythm of success and fame.
summing the influence of all the operating planets as explained above,
overall, August looks to be an
extremely challenging month for him until August 20, and afterwards he can
finally breath a sigh of relief as his success rate starts
The important challenging planetary
for August include Uranus-Rahu (July 23 - Aug 3) ninefold opposition,
Uranus-Jupiter (Aug 7-16) quincunx, Neptune-Mars (Aug 23-26), Neptune-Saturn
(Aug 24 - Sept 21), and Rahu/Ketu-Mars (Aug 27-30) squares, and Saturn-Mars
(Aug 21-24) conjunction.
Uranus-Rahu (July 23 - Aug 3) ninefold
may mean a very difficult period for the Republican Party and republicans,
and also for the United States, in general. In addition, USA and
China will likely go through a crisis situation during this period.
(Aug 7-16) quincunx may
become responsible for a challenging period for world
religions as they would be confronted with the earthshaking
ideas that can not be ignored. Those religious
leaders, who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new
and fresh ideas, are the ones that going to be responsible to transform our
religious world to a new level. Others are going to fade away with time.
The manifestation of the
Neptune-Mars (Aug 23-26)
square may be reflected
in a sudden outbreak in an undesirable happening and increased possibility
of both natural and man-made calamities. The countries that are most likely to be affected during
these three days would be Pakistan and Russia.
(Aug 24 - Sept 21) square may become responsible for a difficult time for
China and Russia from political and social stability standpoint. Both Neptune and Saturn
are very secretive and deceptive planets. As a result, covert activities
will be on rise during this period. Also, upheaval and revolutionary
atmosphere in Russia and China can not be ruled out.
The direct square of Mars with the lunar nodes (Aug 27-30)
means the occurrence of both natural and
man-made calamities causing destruction and loss of lives during these
The manifestation of the
Saturn-Mars (Aug 21-24) conjunction may
be reflected in a short term but very intensive
friction between India and Pakistan. Terrorism and violence,
especially in Israel-Palestine area will be on rise. Outbreak of an
undesirable happening, and strong occurrences of both natural and man-made
calamities are real possibilities.
The countries that are
more likely to be affected during
month are: USA, Russia, China, Europe, Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel
regions) and India. (More)
