Donald Trump’s 2020 events explainer

Donald Trump’s presidency (and life story) is the outcome of his character doing its thing in an environmental setting that’s specified by his birth chart and timed by his major progressed aspects.

Donald Trump’s chart progressed to November 3, 2020

October 2: Trump is moved to Walter Reed medical facility (house 12) with reports saying he is suffering low grade fever (Mars), a cough and lung congestion (Gemini). Progressed Mars was semisquare birth chart Mars in house 12; and progressed Moon was square birth chart Uranus in Gemini.

The Moon rules the immune system and with progressed Uranus opposition and progressed Midheaven sesquisquare birth chart Moon his immune system and resistance – due to a poor diet lacking in essential nutrients – are currently impaired. Uranus – the co-ruler of house 6 (his diet) – inclines to weird eating habits.

Uranus – the planet of high nervous tension – is in Gemini and with progressed Uranus opposition Moon (a long-time high-discord progression) and other Uranus progressions his lungs are currently vulnerable to health problems. 

Early AM: Trump tweets that he has tested positive for coronavirus. Progressed ascendant was sextile birth chart ascendant > events involving his body and physical health; progressed Mercury was sextile birth chart Uranus – co-ruler of house 6 (sickness and employees); progressed Moon was square birth chart Uranus stimulating all the Uranus progressions; and progressed Mars (the virus) was semisquare birth chart Mars.

Uranus events involve human change agents and reports say he contracted the virus from Hope Hicks, an employee ruled by house 6.

With Mars in house 12 conjunction the ascendant Trump is predisposed to be reckless with his physical health (ascendant and house 1). 

In Covid 19: America and Donald Trump we wrote: Mars is the planet of infections and Trump needs to adopt and apply strict personal precautionary measures when it comes to the coronavirus.

Mars rules the adrenal glands and their hormone – adrenalin – is a frontline fighter attacking enemy invaders like the coronavirus. So the onus is on his adrenal glands producing a copious amount of adrenalin. But with progressed Mars currently semisquare birth chart Mars and his non-stop emergency lifestyle the functionality of his adrenal glands is impaired. 

September 

September 27: The New York Times (Mercury) citing tax-return data (house 8) reports that Trump has paid very little income tax (house 8) in recent years as heavy losses (Saturn) from his business enterprises offset hundreds of millions of dollars in income. Trump paid just $750 in federal income taxes in both 2016 and 2017, and paid no income taxes in 10 of the last 15 years. Progressed Mercury (newspapers) was sextile birth chart Jupiter (co-ruler of house 8) and sextile birth chart Uranus (planet of unexpected surprise events); progressed Midheaven (business) was semisquare Uranus and sextile birth chart Neptune (co-ruler of house 8); and progressed Moon was square birth chart Uranus. Progressed Jupiter square birth chart Saturn in his chart started in December, 2009 > reached peak power in October 2016 > and ends January 2022.

September 24: Trump’s niece Mary Trump (house 3), sues her uncle (Jupiter-house 9) accusing him of defrauding her (Neptune) out of an inheritance (house 8) worth tens of millions of dollars. Progressed Venus (cusp ruler of house 3) was parallel progressed Sun; progressed Mercury was sextile birth chart Jupiter (legal matters); progressed Midheaven was sextile birth chart Neptune (planet of fraud and cusp ruler of house 8); and progressed Mars was semisquare birth chart Mars (cusp ruler of house 9).

August 

August 20: A federal judge (Jupiter-house 9) rules that Trump cannot block a prosecutor’s subpoena for eight years of his tax returns (house 8).

June 

June 15-20: With the number of coronavirus cases and deaths continuing to rise Donald Trump has a very bad week. On June 15 the US Supreme Court (house 9) ruled that employers who fire workers for being gay or transgender are breaking the country’s civil rights laws. On June 18 the Supreme Court (Jupiter-house 9) ruled against Trump and blocked his bid to end the DACA program that protects hundreds of thousands of immigrants who entered the US illegally as children from deportation; and Facebook removed Trump re-election adverts (Jupiter-house 9) that feature a symbol used in Nazi (Mars) Germany. And on June 20 a campaign rally (house 9) he held in Tulsa didn’t go well; and a judge (Jupiter-house 9) rejects his request to have the publication of John Bolton’s memoir stopped.

Progressed Mars – the cusp ruler of house 4 – was sextile birth chart Pluto.

May 26: Twitter gives a post (house 9) by Donald Trump a fact-check warning label (Pluto) for the first time. Progressed Mars – the cusp ruler of house 9 – was sextile progressed Pluto.  

In Trump’s chart progressed Mercury is sextile birth chart Jupiter but he’s so tuned in on progressed Mars sextile progressed Pluto that this fortunate Jupiter aspect is unable to demonstrate beneficial events.
