On the most recent Real Time episode, Bill Maher stated that Donald Trump is extremely lucky. He made this observation in reaction to the fact that Donald Trump now has the opportunity to appoint a Supreme Court judge who may well decide that it is unconstitutional to indict a sitting U.S. president. How I love it when people who have no knowledge, interest of respect for astrology validate astrology.
I have been using Trump’s chart as a textbook example a lucky person. It has been widely commented that Trump seems to have had a great deal of luck throughout life. Trump was born into wealth. His dad taught him the ins and outs of real estate investment and gave him his first million for start-up capital. What other entrepreneur could survive multiple large scale bankruptcies by relying on their father to bail them out? Trump clearly has survived what would have finished many others with his ambitions. It has been reported that Trump also inherited as much as $20 million from his father. I have been saying for quite some time, that I expect that Donald Trump will never land in jail, no matter what crimes of his may or may not be revealed. Whatever happens to him, even if he should be impeached, the things he holds most dear will not be taken from him.
It’s his Jupiter/Uranus conjunction on steroids that has bestowed this capacity to always land on his feet. Any one with Jupiter trine Uranus in their birth chart will have many opportunities and apparent good luck that seems to propel them toward their desired life goals. The sextile also can be quite helpful in this regard. If other planets are involved in these aspects the good fortune is enhanced. This is especially the case if the Sun, Venus or the Moon’s Nodes are also in the configuration. The conjunction tends to be lass of a luck-bringer and more of a talent-bestower, but it can be quite helpful in putting the native in the right place at the right time.
Trump’s Uranus is conjunct his Sun and his North Node and both trine Jupiter. The tenth House placement of the Sun/Uranus/N.Node has manifested in Trump’s very public life. Others with this lucky aspect who do not have it in H10 have likely played out their ambitions in less public ways. The Uranus near the top of the chart is a mark of a maverick – one who uses unconventional methods and may display rebelliousness and disrespect for authority and rules.
The Jupiter/Uranus trine very close adding to its’ potency. Also adding to the strength of this aspect is the presence of the fixed stars Rigel, Bellatrix and Capella all within 16-21 Gemini. And Jupiter stationed on the day Trump was born. All of this seems to add fuel to this luck-bringing aspect. The Gemini placement of these planets clearly reflects Trump’s skillful ability to use the spoken word, to use salesman tactics, and to change his mind so frequently.
In my most recent blog I speculated that the Sabian Symbols for eclipse points may point to significant events about to unfold. I commented that the Sabian Symbol for 20 Cancer, which was the point of the next New Moon eclipse on July 13, could be a harbinger of the political events about to unfold. That symbol is :

It does appear that Trump is indeed dialing up his Gemini talents of spin and self-serving rhetoric. At recent rallies he is telling his supporters that the economy will crash and they will all be poor if he is ever impeached – a very extreme use of fear mongering. There was a recent report, albeit without any clear proof, that Trump’s anger has become “volcanic.” Trump has used the word “treason” to describe his view of the betrayals he is experiencing – a very dramatic and extreme choice. Now also a highly respected journalist, Bob Woodward, has used his virtuosity as a reporter to sound a high alarm for what he sees as an extreme threat in the White House. It does indeed feel as if people are shrieking at the top of their lungs, using their best talents, protesting from both sides of the aisle.
