Birthdays are extra special times of year. Astronomically, they mark the time that the Sun returns to approximately the same position it held in the heavens when you entered this world. A lot of cultural rituals have grown out of that day, with the bearing of gifts being the predominant western tradition. It's not only a celebration but a message of goodwill for your next orbit around the Sun.
June 14, last week was Donald Trump's birthday. Researching his chart, some time back, I noted a spike in the planetary placements corresponding with the calendar dates both on and opposite his birthday. That is, the planets seemed to emphasise 22 degrees of Gemini or Sagittarius. No surprise really as his Sun and Moon are positioned closely around the same degrees.
this one step further, I examined the birthdays when he had a New Moon
occurring on the same day, or right beside his birthday. The study yielded
rich results, especially regarding his political trajectory. It was the
New Moon of June 12 1980, falling at 21GEM59 that began the journey. The
same year he met up with backroom political trickster, Roger Stone.
During the same year he appeared on another TV show, where the interviewer, Rona Barrett, strangely asked him whether he would one day like to be the president of the United States. Trump declines and when further pressed to why he wouldn't devote his life to public service answers...
“I see it that somebody with strong views, and somebody with the kind of views that are maybe a little unpopular, even though they may be right..but maybe unpopular...wouldn't necessarily have a chance at getting elected against somebody with no great brain, but a big smile."
WILL YOU RUN FOR PRESIDENT?
The New Moon at 23GEM31, with newsworthy Mercury and popular Venus attached, appeared for his 42nd birthday of 1988. Two months later, he was interviewed by Larry King. This time, it's on the floor of the Republican Convention. Trump is riding high on the success of 'The Art Of The Deal' and has been invited as a guest of Vice President, George Bush.
He is introduced as 'handsome in the Robert Redford mould' by a blonde female announcer. Trump is making a serious effort of appealing to the 'ordinary folk'. He claims, “The wealthy people don't like me, the people that really like me are the taxi drivers and the workers. I like to win.” When questioned as to why he is a Republican, he claims he likes their principles.
Larry King enquires why he is now attached to politics. Trump claims he enjoys the 'system' but doubts that he will ever be involved beyond what he is doing – raising money for the Republican candidate. He then makes an interesting comment in that he finds this 'system a beautiful thing to watch'.
King pushes on regarding rumours of Trump running. Trump denies them. He is further interviewed by another network about 'flirting with running for President'. As he laughs it off, he is reminded of full page adds he has paid for, outlining his polices in major New York tabloids. Trump is now an outspoken critic on political issues.
in '88, on the David Letterman show, he claims that the US is being taken
for a ride by Japan and Saudi Arabia, (re defence costs) and is a country
being ripped off by its own allies. Letterman says, “it seems to
me that you are dying to get to some public platform to superimpose those
feelings upon the American awareness.”
He fields the same presidential queries on Oprah in 1988, espousing the same beliefs. The country is being taken for a ride by Japanese imports and that allies should be paying the costs. The views haven't changed – just substitute China for Japan. The 1988 Gemini New Moon came with a political bug attached and he caught it.
THE ABORTED CAMPAIGN
Trump would revive his presidential ambitions when the next New Moon of June 13 1999 fell at 22GEM19, the day before his 53rd birthday. Roger Stone was managing the affair. The New York Times headlined it as “The Ego Behind the Ego in a Trump Gamble”. Trump announced his candidacy, again via the Larry King Show on October 7. The venture ended abruptly on February 14 2000, when he pulled out of the race, with little chance of victory.
The New Moon at 23GEM40 occurred on his 61st birthday in 2007. The Republicans had lost the House and the Senate on the back of George Dubya and the unpopular Iraq War. A major recession was on the way. Trump had switched sides, now a donor for the Democrats. Hillary Clinton seemed assured of the nomination. They forgot to tell Barack Obama.
battle was now a showbiz one, with wrestling promoter, Vince McMahon.
But 2007, was also the year Trump formed his professional association
with lawyer Michael Cohen. The year that his Solar Return placed the Sun
opposite underworld Pluto.
would take the New Moon of 25GEM07 on June 16 2015 and its association
with motivational Mars at 24GEM35, to make his most serious bid for national
leadership. One which again began with Roger Stone as campaign chief and
would succeed all expectations. The orb here is slightly wider at two
degrees, all of the others being within one degree either way. But it
certainly furthers the pattern.
Now, in June 2018 the New Moon falls the day before Trump's birthday at 22GEM44. It is aspected to both the eclipsing nodal axis and again to battleground Mars. Trump is now aiming for a Nobel Prize. Again events have happened right around his birthday. But it is not only a contentious G7, where his protectionist policies rankled allies. Nor is it the historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Precisely on his birthday, Trump finds himself embroiled in a new legal affair. The New York Attorney General, Barbara Underwood has initiated charges against the Trump Foundation, for misusing funds and operating outside the guidelines of a registered charity. This New Moon is also reviving that of 2007, with a focus on people like Stormy Daniels and Michael Cohen and investigations into Russian oligarchs.
Solar Return of 2018 places the New Moon in the house of relationship.
It's a focus on allies and/or enemies. Endings and new beginnings predominate
in these areas. Already we see some of this playing out with the arrest
of campaign director Paul Manafort and now possibly his lawyer Michael
Moon usually indicates females, which makes it interesting that the New
York Attorney General is a female, and one of the best legal minds in
the country. Her birthday of August 16 1944 means that her Sun falls on
Trump's Mars. The 2018 Solar Return (and new Moon) has again put the spotlight
on Trump's future presidential hopes, even though he is already in the
The priests of ancient Nineveh did not rely solely on celestial phenomena. They also noted unusual events happening on a terrestrial level, along with dream divinations in their quest to understand interconnectedness. They bridged connections between the past and the future. Omens acted as prophecies of things to come.
A modern example of similar prescience may be John Brunner's Hugo Award winning 1969 sci-fi novel 'Stand on Zanzibar'. Set for the future year of 2010, there are seven billion people on the planet, the Soviet Union is no longer a threat, the main rival to the US is China and it features a world leader named President Obomi. Some people seem to slide between the slipstream of the future and the past.
let's slide back to August 18 2015 in New York, the time of a 'Time' magazine
photo shoot. An unusual event occurs. Presidential candidate Donald Trump
is attacked by America's national symbol, a bald eagle. It's name is 'Uncle
Sam' the identity of American patriotism. Trump is genuinely in fear as
the eagle lunges toward at his hand as reaches for something on his desk.
Could this be interpreted as some sort of threat that temporarily rattles the future president? Is it the stuff omens are made of? One method of timing could be to count the days between the eagle attack and when Trump actually became President on January 20 2017. And then add the same amount of days into the future onto that date. It's not the sort of thing I normally indulge in. But...
It takes us to June 2018. The month that Donald Trump is due for a meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles and their fans, having defeated the New England Patriots in the Superbowl final. Trump cancels the meeting after a number of the Eagles players pull out of the event. For some that might indicate an uncanny connection between eagles, patriots and the president. But he certainly wasn't afraid of the consequences and nothing really happened.
All of that transpired on June 06. Counting the days between the attack and adding them to his swearing in date, produces a later date. So perhaps the symbols are just indicating we're in the ballpark, as the actual threat date would be closer to June 25 2018.
That's the day that both the government and Michael Cohen's lawyers have agreed to review the documents seized during the April 9 FBI raid on Trump's lawyer's office. We might have to wait until June 25 to discover whether such omens can be taken seriously, or not.
