Impeachment inquiry – will Trump be removed from office?
Background – Natal Chart:
Donald Trump, current and 45th President of the United States of America, was born on 14 June 1946 at 10:54am (EDT) in Jamaica, New York (see natal chart below with current transits). He may soon be impeached and removed from office, so an astrological analysis can guide us to a potential conclusion.
Trump’s Sun is in the Air sign of Gemini; a curious, chatty, communicative sign, which enjoys making connections with others and collecting data. He may be restless since Gemini is also a Mutable sign, indicating changeability, versatility and flexibility. Trump’s Sun is also closely aligned with the North Node in Gemini, denoting he was born at the time of an eclipse. Since his Sun opposes his Moon in the adventurous sign of Sagittarius, he was born at the time of a Lunar Eclipse. The eclipse is total given the proximity of the Nodal axis to the Sun and the Moon (within 9 degrees). His parents may have been at odds with each other at the time of his birth because the eclipse falls across the 10th (Sun)/4th (Moon) house axis, associated with parents.
Eclipses are unstable, unpredictable ‘wildcards.’ Adding to this temperamental inconsistency, Trump’s Sun (and the North Node) are also conjoined with the planet Uranus (also in Gemini), planet of individuality, eccentricity, uniqueness and rebellion. Not surprisingly then, Trump can shock people with his words. This configuration plays out in his 10th house or area of life which represents career and public image.
Trump’s Sun is also the ruler of his Leo Ascendant, making it his Chart Ruler. The Ascendant is our persona and how we like to project ourselves into our environment. A Fiery Leo Ascendant implies a person who comes across to others in a grand, confident, proud, creative and dramatic way. Warrior planet Mars in Leo is conjunct his Ascendant, adding drive and assertion in the way he meets the world. There is a lot of Fire and Air energy in this chart, ‘hot air’ and very ‘yang’ or active.
The Moon in Fiery, Mutable Sagittarius tends towards feelings of optimism and inspiration. The ruler of Sagittarius, Jupiter, is in the 2nd house of material resources, including money, thereby expanding this area of life. Neptune too in the 2nd can be making money through your ideals, dreams and fantasies, or even through deceitful means or being deceived, and having a ‘feel’ or using your intuition in relation to money.
Trump has no planets in Earth signs. When there is an imbalance in an element, we can project this element and attract people who are steadfast, practical, grounded and routine-oriented. Otherwise, we can repress, bury and deny this part of our nature, or compensate for this element by making it big in our lives.
Powerful Pluto is in Trump’s 12th house, indicating he may have deep, intense, psychological complexes. Having both Mars and Pluto in the 12th tends toward having unconscious drivers for power and control.
His 11th house of groups, friendships and allies contains Mercury, his Ruling Planet – as ruler of his Gemini Sun, which in Cancer. Therefore Trump’s method of communication is possibly to filter his ideas and words through his feelings and emotions. Venus (relationships, values, worth, money, pleasure) is conjunct Saturn (authority, responsibility, control, rigidity, commitment, tradition) too in his 11th house, where denials and limits on affection and pleasure are common, and relationships are serious, controlled and disciplined. Love and time are also interlinked – if I spend time with you, it means I appreciate you.
The looming Saturn Pluto conjunction which perfects on 12 January 2020 at 22 degrees of Capricorn, will oppose Trump’s natal Venus at 25 degrees of Cancer (ruler of his Taurus Midheaven and 10th house cusp ruling the sector of career and public standing). It will also oppose his natal Saturn at 23 degrees of Cancer. Saturn and Pluto are both planets who have the theme of ‘endings’ in common.
We are collectively witnessing the transformation – the death, rebirth and regeneration of powerful structures in society; be it corporate or government, including church hierarchies. Anything lurking in the shadows by figures in authority, will be excavated or dredged, uncovered to be held up to the light of day, and purged. Secrets will be exposed, or whistleblowers will emerge in this case. Trump’s standing and authority are up for scrutiny.
This transit falls in Trump’s 5th house of children, self-expression, pleasure and romance. The endings associated here could include a change in relation to his children (Ivanka)? and/or a possible extra-marital dalliance may be revealed. Since Venus rules his public career sector, an ending is in store. Saturn is also known as ‘father time’ or the Lord of Karma, so when Saturn makes a connection to our personal planets especially (Sun/Moon/Mercury/Venus or Mars), our chickens come home to roost. The glyph or symbol for Saturn is shaped like a sickle, a tool for harvesting. We reap what we sow. Life moves in cycles so like the saying goes, ‘what goes around comes around.’
The Democrats are currently investigating Trump regarding whether or not he abused his presidential power by holding back approximately $400 million in US military aid to the Ukraine, whilst asking the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to examine with a view to discrediting political opponent and Democrat Joe Biden, former U.S. vice president and a contender in the 2020 U.S. presidential race.
On 25 July 2019, one week and two days after a Lunar Eclipse at 24 degrees of Capricorn fell right on Trumps’s Venus Saturn conjunction – again signifying endings and things coming to light for resolution (please see link https://astrologyworks.com.au/https-astrologyworks-com-au-partial-lunar-ecrenting-the-self/), Trump spoke by telephone to Zelensky. During the call, the men discussed reactivating a Ukrainian government investigation linked to the Ukrainian oil company, Burisma Holdings Ltd, a company that Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, had served on as a board member and director from 2014 until at least 2018, while his father Joe was vice president (2009-2017). The White House then hid the call in a top-secret database. This is according to an apparently credible whistleblower who made a complaint to Michael Atkinson, inspector general for the intelligence community, on 12 August 2019.
Atkinson then spent two weeks reviewing the whistleblower’s complaint. This complaint alleges Trump used the power of his office to obtain foreign help for the upcoming 2020 election, then limited access to any records of the call. On 26 August 2019 Atkinson found that the complaint appeared credible after a preliminary review.
At the time of writing a second intelligence official may also file a whistleblower complaint about Trump’s Ukraine dealings. More may come out.
The current astrological climate suggests the impeachment inquiry initiated on 24 September 2019 by Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives may be taken to the Senate with the trial overseen by the Supreme Court Chief Justice. If two-thirds of the Senate vote in favour of a conviction then Trump’s term will end, he’ll will be removed from office, and could even serve jail time.
