I try not to talk politics here, but thought it would be interesting to look at the new administration's chart to see what we see. This post won't be here for long - I don't really want it in my blog feed, but a few people have asked me about it so I'll leave it searchable if you look for it another time.
Trump took the oath of office at exactly 12 noon. An astrology chart set up for precisely that moment in Washington D.C. - we'll call it the inauguration chart - will tell us alot about what he/and we will be dealing with for the next four years. We also have the ingress charts as he moves through his term - the chart for the day the Sun moves into a cardinal sign and ushers in a new season - but today's chart provides a good overview.
Remember this chart would apply to whoever won the election, assuming they were sworn in at this customary time.
Then we'll add Trump's natal chart to this chart and we'll have something personalized to his Presidency (comparing two charts in astrology is called synastry).
First, let's see what the skies looked like at noon in D.C. We know alot about what is happening from this week's forecast and dailies. We know the Sun has just moved into Aquarius and the Moon is in Scorpio today.
Scorpio and Aquarius are both fixed signs that square each other. Since Trump was born with his Sun conjunct Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) he is the Sun in this chart - he would be anyway, but damn it is so, so accurate. The Moon in a mundane chart represents 'the people' or 'the public'. We have Trump squaring the people or the people squaring Trump. And we have the Sun and Moon in fixed signs so everyone's positions are pretty dug in and rigid. This is also the 'mommy and daddy are fighting' aspect that will probably represent the two political parties.
We have all planets moving ahead (no planets retrograde and this is VERY unusual) so he will be off to the races right out of the gate! No looking backward - he will only be looking ahead.
Noon puts the Sun in the 10th house at the top of the chart - the house of career and government. This is why I should have known the inauguration (moment he takes the oath) is precisely at noon - our founding fathers, many Freemasons, knew astrology and knew what they were doing here.
This year the ruler of the 10th house (Uranus) is in the 12th house in Aries. This shows Trump using initiative and energy and yes, anger or impulsive action (Aries) to change and revolutionize (Uranus) government, business, societal structures (10th house). Even though his recent appointments don't look much like he is "draining the swamp" - this configuration gives him the focus and power to create fast and maybe unexpected changes. With Aries in the 12th house, much of this work will be 'behind the scenes', maybe 'clouded in secrets, maybe even deception', somethings might just disappear or drift away or he could drift off purpose. He could have hidden enemies and secret alliances.
Aries is ruled by Mars (war, action) and Mars is in the 11th house of friends. And the 11th house, Pisces in this chart, also houses Mercury, Venus and Chiron. Remember we have alot of Pisces right now - why it's hard to tell what is real from what is not real. This will continue with this administration - hard to tell what is true.
Pisces in the 11th house makes friendships rather unreliable and mutable. If you are born with Pisces here you can't always count on your friends and they can't always count on you. With so many planets in this space our relationships with other countries will be a focus and will be subject to change.
Mars is conjunct Chiron - this could be some wounding to masculinity or the military (maybe the Navy since it's in Pisces, but I might be stretching things) over the next four years. Mars is also making a tense aspect to Jupiter in the 6th house which rules 'health' and work. Maybe something happens militarily that has a negative impact on our nation's health or ability to work. The Moon is also in that 6th house and represents 'the people'. This is probably not good news.
You might remember we talked the other day about Mars squaring Saturn (that was the live to fight another day post). The inauguration chart has Mars (military, action) in that 11th house (friends) squaring Saturn (authority, limits, walls) in the 9th house in Sagittarius (religion, foreigners, legal issues, the media). Squares denote tension and conflict. You can kind of see where this is going.
The U.S. is a Cancer country - born on the 4th of July, after all, and Cancer rules the 4th house of home, family and patriotism. In this chart we have Cancer strong in the 4th house and we have the ruler of Cancer, the Moon, in the 6th house of the nation's health (healthcare?) and our day to day work. This is a good indicator that Trump's focus will be on the health of the nation and getting people working. This is good. Now this is what we usually see in these inauguration charts (since they are always the same day and time). Every President wants to do good for the health of the nation, Trump does, too.
The good news - the Moon is sextile Mercury so Trump will have easy conversations with 'the people' and his words will make people feel listened to and comforted. Venus is sextile Pluto (my post from this morning) - this should be good for women's issues and money. I know that sounds unlikely at this moment, but I think tomorrow's marches for women around the country will make a difference! This is also about the country being passionate about what we love and loving what we are passionate about.
With Capricorn ruling the 10th (government) and answering to Saturn (Saturn rules Capricorn) in the 8th (death, rebirth, other people's assets, karma, transformation) in Sagittarius much of the government's focus will be on foreign policy, immigration, legal issues, religion, maybe the media. And with Pluto - the planet of transformation and karma, in Capricorn in the 9th house squaring Jupiter (in Libra/6th house) and squaring Uranus (in Aries/12th house). Well, that's a whole lot of tension.
Some of these challenges are not so dissimilar to the ones Obama faced.
Jupiter (in Libra/6th house) has multiple aspects. Many astrologers see Jupiter as always beneficial, but I know from my own life that Jupiter's expansion (not to mention being literally full of hot air, well gases anyway) expands both positive and negative things. I am not liking Jupiter all squished up here in the 6th house and squaring the Sun, Pluto and the chart's mid-heaven and opposing Uranus. It feels like whatever expands will not be for the best or what needs to expand will get squashed.
It could be the 'expansions' of his administration run into a lot of roadblocks or are just not good for society.
The biggest challenge with the inauguration chart is a T-Square between Uranus, Jupiter and Pluto - all power players. Uranus opposite Jupiter in Libra - feels to me like unexpected, unbalanced and/or unfair actions that are either overblown (overstated by the media, maybe) or create big tension. Alliances can change quickly. This T-Square is challenging. We'll look at it again.
Well, I'm getting a headache and going to call it a night. There is alot more to look at. Hopefully will polish this off over the weekend by adding his natal chart to the mix!
Going to the Women's March tomorrow in Asbury Park, NJ. Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!
