US Inauguration astrology and the Donald Trump update

2017 inaugurationDonald J. Trump will be inaugurated as President of the United States on January 20th at 12:00 pm, Washington DC.  The astrological chart for the inauguration is the chart for the presidency, so let’s take a look.

Inauguration Chart astrology

The Sun is in the first degree of Aquarius, the sign of freedom and social justice as well as radical behavior and revolution from the past, and it sits in the 10th house of highest aspiration, so this is a very favorable indication of the success of the presidency.  The chart has no planets in retrograde motion which is extremely rare – this suggests that there will not be a lot of looking back into the past for reflection but instead events will unfold rather quickly.

The Moon is in Scorpio which is all about dominance and who has more power than whom, but it is well aspected with a trine to Pallas (wisdom), Neptune (spirit) and Venus (attraction), all in Pisces to soften the Scorpionic intensity.  The Moon is in the 6th house where it’s all about getting things done, which is a nice place for it.

The 11th house is packed with a stellium of planets in Pisces which is not a great sign for political advantage.  Pisces is dreamy and mystical and often too concerned with lofty matters to be very practical or realistic.  The Venus/Neptune conjunction in Pisces makes it difficult to know who our allies are and whether they can be trusted, especially in the 11th house of shared goals.  Chiron (emotional wounds) is packed in there between Venus (allies) and Mars (aggression) which suggests what we are all suspecting – that Trump’s emotional reactivity will stimulate an aggressive response (Chiron/Mars) to threaten alliances with other nations (Venus, all in the 11th house).

The conjunction of Eris (discord) and Uranus (rebellion) that I wrote about here is still in effect and the unpredictability of the global political landscape continues through this year.  Eris and Uranus are opposite Jupiter (good fortune and luck) which would normally amplify and intensify the potential chaos of Eris/Uranus, but Jupiter is in a rather fortunate placement in Libra and in the 6th house of obligation where it will help to forge new and unexpected alliances.  However, a square from expansive Jupiter to Pluto (power and death) suggests that the exertion of power and power struggles will be a hallmark of this presidency.

Donald Trump astrological update

Donald Trump’s astrological chart (see this earlier article for a detailed profile) shows that he is in the beginning of quite a few major cycles – a few challenging ones involving Saturn (tests and restriction) and lots of Jupiter (good luck and expansion) including his Jupiter return and a harmonious trine from Jupiter to his Sun (Self), both supremely fortunate cycles.  Under the Jupiter influence he has the potential to achieve success and the opening of doors of opportunity.  Under the Saturn influence he will be blocked and challenged which with his personality will be frustrating and potentially depressing.

We like to think about Jupiter as being happy and always wonderful, but in a personality like Trump the expansive influence and added confidence of Jupiter can make an extreme personality even more extreme.  Jupiter cycles are often present in the charts of criminals, bestowing the confidence and sense of well being that unleashes their repressed madness.  I’m certainly not saying that Trump will become a mad criminal under the influence of Jupiter, but it is certain to expand his already narcissistic and bombastic personality rather than temper it.  The repression of Saturn will likely be experienced as coming from outside him rather than inside, because he is not an introspective individual.

There is always a chance that the Presidential office will transform the man, and he will step up to the majesty of his responsibilities and utilize his positive planetary cycles for the good of the nation rather than utilize them for himself, just as he has utilized other resources throughout his business life.

    Thanks Lynn for your measured analysis. President elect Trump’s inauguration already has so many on edge and the media fanning the flames of hysteria certainly doesn’t ease anxiety. I appreciate your calming tone.

      It’s a crazy time, Gina. I appreciate your comment and I do think that understanding the planetary energies helps us to see the bigger picture.

    Thank you for posting this information. I am concerned about what his administration might do. I fear he will tweet us into a trade war or an actual war.

      I can appreciate that Tamara but in my view there is nothing to be gained by fearing the future. You never know what can come about and we are nearly always surprised. In any case, there is nothing we can do other than make the changes in our own lives that will bring us joy and contentment and do what we can in our communities to bring about change.

    Jupoter returns is vary positive cycle for anyone; Is unfortunate that you are using this venue to let your lefties views taint and distord a reality.
    Objectinly, there no better persons to become the leader of the world than the pne who has no political ties and pwes no favors to the corrupted political class. Trump is the best thing to happen to America and to stop the abuse and demise that Obama did.
    Law and order can never be a bad venue but only to criminals and law breakers.
    Being positive, driven, good fathet and successful is never a bad attribute.

      Claude, you have an interesting perspective, and interesting spelling too. But you don’t know much about astrology if you think Jupiter returns are good for everyone. Do some research and you will find that this is not always the case.

      This is primarily an astrological blog and not a political one and I make it a point to try very hard to present a balanced astrological portrait. In any case I am no lefty and my only agenda is to promote greater understanding of our world through astrology.

    “….no planets in retrograde motion…..”, or so you write, above! It’s Sunday, 10/22/2017, and I watched Trump’s inauguration speech online. I clearly recall him stating that his administration will be “only focused on the future”, (something like that – a near quote). And, I find your astrological analysis to align very well with what I see happening with a Trump presidency. I am unlearned as to astrology, and don’t want to get all political here, BUT, I do want to say, that I TRULY BELIEVE things will be much better than many fear! And, there’s NO DOUBT that the main-stream U.S. media has had a VERY strong pro-Hilary, and anti-Trump BIAS. Here in the U.S., the media is *generally* pro-Democrat, pro-“liberal”, and pro-Hollywood. And, the rumors of a “satanic” influence in Hollywood are more than just rumors. So, overall, we must not give in to, or empower our fears. I’m glad I stumbled upon, (or was guided to!) this site, and I remain hopeful and encouraged. Much of Trump’s campaign rhetoric was designed to do 2 things: Appeal to the “Middle America” voters who elected him, and get him free publicity! Don’t listen so closely to what Trump *has said*, but instead watch more closely what he *DOES*, and *SAYS*, *NOW* that he is actually in the Office!
    Look how many counter-protesters have taken to the streets! (I don’t mean the paid anarchists smashing windows!) Far fewer women would have taken to the streets, if Hillary had been elected! (Oh, btw, didn’t I hear that the Clinton Global Initiative (“Clinton Foundation”) has just shut down?) Hillary was much worse in reality, than he image would have you believe, and Trump is much worse in image, than his reality will show. ) THANK-YOU!, and may God Bless! ~Bill./

    The Moon in Scorpio is attracting spiritual wisdom to get things done. This is my hope for President Trump, for love of America, and her people.

    I wish you could figure when the bear (down) cycle started in 2000 and do an astrological reading. I believe at then end of January we move into a bull (up) cycle, and it would be nice if there was a way to do a reading on this also. Although the previous administration didn’t let us know that we are in a global recession right now, that ends this month. The saying: “as oil goes so goes the USA, as China goes, so goes the world”, and China had a hard landing in January 2016.

    Anyway, it would nice if you could figure out when this current world recession ends this month and do a reading.

    Thank you Lynn for all your knowledge and wisdom.

    It’s amazing that even on an astrology website, the trump trolls are busy spreading
    their misinformation.
    How about a chart reading on when trump will be facing impeachment or forced
    to resign after just about destroying the country.

      My hope for every President is for them to do good, for love of America, and her people.

      Janel, that is not the kind of astrology I practice.

        I know you don’t Lynn. My comment was really directed at the two Trump supporters who posted at this site. I was very surprised to see that.
