Part I is HERE
Let's finish up this look at the inauguration chart by comparing it to Trump's natal chart.
The first thing I see is the Aquarius Sun in the inauguration day chart is conjunct Trump's 6th house cusp. The 6th house rules our health and work. This could give him energy and vitality with his daily work and also a focus on jobs, but also shine a light on his health (also our healthcare issues!) or bring to light issues with his health. I don't know if he ever had a complete physical - I remember his doctor was very vague on the papers that were released. Hopefully as he focuses on his day to day activities he will also focus on his health. He will certainly be focused on the 6th house issues of jobs and healthcare.
His natal Sun and natal Uranus (2nd house - values, money, security) oppose the inauguration day Saturn (8th house - death, transformation, karma). Gemini Suns have been dealing with Saturn opposing them since Saturn moved into Sagittarius over a year ago and have another year to go. He has certainly faced many obstacles and succeeded. In this chart the opposition is pretty exact though. Saturn is time, work, restrictions. This shows obstacles, roadblocks from authority - he will need to focus and clarify his purpose.
His Mercury (communication, information) is strong in the 3rd house (which it rules) of the inauguration chart - it will be hard/unlikely for him to stop tweeting! It opposes the inauguration chart's Mercury in the 9th house. Since the 9th house rules the media, legal issues, the courts, higher truth, foreign issues, foreign trade, immigration, higher education - his communications will continue to be at odds with these themes - no big news here.
There is an astrological configuration called a 'mystic rectangle' when we compare Trump's natal chart with the inauguration day chart. This is a connection with four planets. We have two planets in opposition to each other and separated by a sextile - it looks like an envelope. When found in a person's natal chart the envelope contains a gift - from the person to the world. When the person gives their gift to the world, they are rewarded in kind. In this case it involves Trump's 2nd, 6th, 8th and 12th houses. We can make a word sandwich with these house themes - (2nd) money, values, security, personal resources (6th) health, daily activities, day to day work, (8th) death, rebirth, transformation, other people's resources, karma, (12th) imagination, hidden enemies or alliances, stuff put away, secrets, self-sabotage, escape, addiction.
We'll have to see how this plays out.
There is also a T-Square here involving Trump's natal Venus/Saturn conjunction and the inauguration chart's Uranus and Jupiter. This one also involves the 6th and 12th houses and the 4th house of home, family, country. Since Venus is the ruler of Trump's mid-heaven (career, public reputation, life's goal) Taurus and his "home" is now The White House (his place of work) this year's Uranus/Jupiter opposition - one of the big ongoing aspects in 2017 - will be impacting him big time.
(and with his natal Uranus/Sun conjunction I think whenever I say "Uranus" in the weekly forecasts - and you can pronounce this either way, long a or short a, depending on your feelings about the President and these could change, too, as we move along - anyway, when I write Uranus, you can think Trump)
He has many challenging periods over the next year (through October 2017 at least) including the fact our total solar eclipse in August - what astronomers are calling The Great American Eclipse because it will be so visible in the United States - will be conjunct his ascendant (first house cusp, his physical self). Eclipses are giant cosmic resets and eclipse something out. This one will last for two minutes, so it's effects will be felt for two years.
He needs to be cautious, but I don't think he can/will be. Whatever he is here to bring us, he is going to bring us.

If Hillary had been elected I don't think we would have seen this. And not if Bernie had won either.
We are ending centuries of patriarchy and moving into equality. It takes what it takes. It won't be pretty.
And truly Trump's chart, as ugly as it is sometimes, also shows a larger than life energy for change and transformation, a passion to win and a deep caring for family and country. There are always diamonds - hopefully he/we will unearth them. Also as he changes us, we change him, too. The Universe is never static and free will is always present in all situations. We will hope, and work, for the best outcome for all of us.
People keep asking me if it looks like he will finish out his term. I think there are indicators he might not. Maybe if he makes it through October. But when we look ahead to the inauguration of 2020 (2020 is a HUGE year astrologically) his chart still fits right in with where we will likely be then. Of course, we have the whole 'winter is coming' thing next year when Saturn comes home to Capricorn and that feels a little like Pence to me. Maybe Pence won't run in 2020 and we'll have a whole other 2016! Also Trump has that big August eclipse right on his ascendant and his natal Mars.
With Trump's natal Uranus/Sun conjunction his actions and outcomes really can't be predicted and now that his chart is enmeshed with the U.S. chart, the United States can't be predicted either. We also have the North Node moving into Leo in May - people who are not stepping into their own spotlight and responsibility might be looking for a "King". It's hard to say.
I have tried to write these two posts in as unbiased a manner as I could. Here is a post I wrote about both Clinton and Trump before the election. But the astrologer is always present in any astrology forecast (and if you are a regular reader you know I am a bit of a negative thinker). I'm going to leave these posts in the feed for a week and then bury them a bit. They will still be searchable by subject. I want to keep this blog as nonpolitical as I can - although obviously sometimes events factor into the weeklies.
I don't want anyone to feel unwelcome here. We are all in this together and we need to remember whoever won the 2016 election would have been stepping into very similar landmines!
