It can be fun to try a little predictive work from time to time for a public figure who is often causing news and conjecture. Donald Trump has never been quite for a whole day. With the Sunday TV talk-shows airing tomorrow, this is a great time to come out with another plan, more outrageous remarks — all designed to dominate the news cycle and diminish the presence of the other candidates in the Republican Party of the United States. Let us look at Trump’s latest Moon-Sun Return and tomorrows (Sept. 13th, 2015) chart to see what we might expect.
This is a 12th house t/Moon-n/Sun themed chart. My new book, Personal Moon To Sun Returns, states, “Shaping the future or helping others in their needs. Advocating for public service, policies. Volunteering or visiting those in solitude. Being in a recovery or treatment phase for one’s health. Being isolated or working alone behind the scenes.” There is clearly — for political campaign purposes — an emphasis on proposals, those in need, public policies, the provision of support. From this “theme” we might expect something along the lines of ‘Obama Care’, Social Security, etc. to be part of his messaging for the weekend.
How can we add to, or refine, this idea? Note n/Saturn-n/Venus-Asc.; this is a ‘tough love’ pattern. Add to this the IC grouping which has t/N.Node-t/Mercury (talking to others) along with n/Neptune (his vision, his dreams for the crowd. Interesting is that t/PoF is not angular and makes no hard aspects to the other planets in the chart — perhaps not much change will result from this cycle’s efforts!?
The Sunday, Sept. 13th chart, Advanced using diurnal methods from the Sept. 6th chart, brings the t/PoF to the Ascendant — this is an impact statement pattern!
t/Mercury-n/Chiron-n/Jupiter at the IC angle points to something new being said about the social responsibility of health care and fixing what is broken. Over the next three days, as the MC angle passes over t/Uranus, these views of Trumps may cause much alarm and upset.
Note t/Moon in the 3rd, conjoining t/Sun while opposing t/Chiron; Much talk of ideas affecting health, services, broken policies will re-frame the political debates over the coming days. I feel that Trump is just warming up — note the upcoming Mars Return in the 2nd house of self-esteem, personal values, monetary resources.
All of this comes as we start to sense other candidates and political pundents beginning to mount pressures against Trump for more details, a broader sense of just what each of his proposals consists of. This may not detract Trump in the short term but in coming weeks he may have to adjust his campaign approach from the “Great I who can do great things for you” approach. If and when this happens, the nature of the campaign will change.
So, let us watch the news together and see just what happens. Dave
