The President and the Porn Star

The report by the Wall Street Journal that Donald Trump’s lawyer wrote a six-figure check to Stephanie Clifford (aka Stormy Daniels) in order to prevent the porn star from talking about an affair she had had with his client surfaced a while ago. For any other American politician this would have been a death blow, but for Donald Trump it was barely a headline. Still, the story has persisted and even grown, so I thought it might be time to look at Ms. Clifford’s horoscope. (Click on Stephanie Clifford to see a chart done for noon on her birthday.)


Clifford is a Pisces by Sun sign with the Moon in Scorpio. This is highly emotional combination. It is also a powerful combination. In my book, Father Sun, Mother Moon: Astrology’s Dynamic Duo I write of this combination: “Whatever it is that you are convinced that you need, you go after it with a ruthless sense of purpose.”Another interesting thing about Clifford’s Scorpio Moon is that in Clifford’s account of her sexual encounter with Trump (published by “In Touch” magazine) Trump compared her to his daughter, Ivanka. Ivanka is a Scorpio by Sun sign.


Of course, given Clifford’s profession, it behooves us to also look at her Mars-Venus combination. She has Mars in sexy Pisces, but her Venus is in brainy Aquarius. In the Mars-Venus Handbook I write of this combination: “You are a very sensitive, vulnerable person, but you also have the ability to view your feelings with a cool, intellectual distance.” I would think that this combination would be helpful for a person working in the porn industry. Mars in Pisces can be quite seductive (particularly teamed with a Pisces Sun) but Venus in Aquarius would allow the individual to intellectual separate the sex he or she was having at work with the sex he or she was having at home.


Comparing Clifford’s chart to that of Donald Trump we see that her Sun squares his natal Sun and trines his natal Venus. This would indicate an attraction but the square between the two Suns would make any long term relationship difficult. Also, Venus in Clifford’s chart is trine Jupiter in Trump’s. This indicates that she would benefit from the relationship. In a more conventional relationship we might say that this benefit would be emotional, but Venus can also represent money, which seems the deciding factor in this case.


At the time that the Wall Street Journal article appeared Jupiter was moving quickly toward Clifford’s natal Uranus. Now it is a full on conjunction. I think most astrologers would see Jupiter conjunct Uranus as an aspect for unexpected breaks and golden opportunities. Clifford seems to see it that way. She recently announced that she is going to take her strip show on a nationwide tour. No doubt there will be plenty of Trump voters in the audience cheering for her.


By late February transiting Neptune will be moving into a conjunction with Clifford’s natal Mars. There are different ways of looking at this aspect, but considering the context it reeks of scandal. The aspect also indicates vagueness, confusion and deception. It is a fine expression of a situation in which you were using money paid to you for saying you didn’t sleep with the president to fund a tour made possible because you’re famous for sleeping with the president.
