I thought it might be interesting to look at the horoscopes of some of the people who hold significant positions in the new Trump administration. Last time I looked at a chart for Sean Spicer, Trump’s Director of Communication. Today I want to consider Kellyanne Conway, the woman who managed his successful campaign and is presently serving as a top adviser to the President.
Since we do not have a time of birth on Conway I’m using a horoscope charted for noon on her birthday, and this immediately presents us with a problem. (Click on Kellyanne Conway to see this chart.) Like Spicer, Conway was born on a day when the Sun changed signs. Without a time we can’t say if she is a Capricorn by Sun sign or an Aquarius.
Nonetheless, there are a few definite things about this horoscope. Regardless what sign it occupies, Conway’s Sun is conjunct Mercury and opposite Jupiter. This tells us that Conway possesses an expansive, adventurous personality. Since neither Capricorn nor Aquarius is a risk-taking signs, this adventurous spirit is going to mostly be expressed intellectually. She is drawn to bold, extreme ideas, and no matter what you think about Donald Trump’s ideas, you have to admit that they are bold and extreme.
I thought it might be interesting to look at the horoscopes of some of the people who hold significant positions in the new Trump administration. I’m starting with the man charged with presenting the President’s message to the world, Sean Spicer, Trump’s Director of Communication.
Of course, we don’t have a time of birth for Spicer, so I’ve had to resort to a chart done for noon on his birthday. (Click on Sean Spicer to see that chart.) This is problematic because Spicer was born on a day when the Sun changed signs. If he was born before noon he is a Sun sign Virgo. If he was born very much after noon he is a Sun sign Libra.
But all is not lost. Regardless of what time Spicer was born his Sun is conjunct Pluto. Also, no matter what time he was born his Moon will be in Scorpio. Since Pluto rules Scorpio this tells us that, no matter what, there is going to be a strong Scorpio emphasis in the horoscope.
In my last two articles I have compared the horoscopes of Barack Obama and Donald Trump to the Sibley horoscope for the U.S.A. For astrological reasons that I will save for a later time, I think it very likely that sometime during the next four years we are going to find ourselves enunciating the alliterative phrase, President Pence. So, I’ve decided to do a similar comparison using a horoscope charted for noon on Pence’s birth date. (Click here to see the double chart.)
The most striking connection between these two horoscopes is the conjunction between Pence’s Mercury the Sibley Mars. This is similar to the conjunction we saw between Trump’s Sun and the Sibley Mars, although it is not nearly as strong. Pence can certainly talk about the anger felt by a sector of the U.S. population, and he has an intellectual grasp of its causes, but he will never be a conduit for it in the way that Trump has become.
In my last article I discussed the connections between the Sibley horoscope for the United States and that of Barack Obama. Now it’s time to look at the connections between the Sibley chart and the horoscope of our new president, Donald Trump. (Click here to see a double chart with the U.S. horoscope on the inside and Trump’s on the outside.)
There are several strong connections between Trump’s horoscope and the Sibley chart. The most dramatic is the conjunction of Trump’s Sun with the Sibley Mars, and the opposition of Trump’s Moon to the same Sibley planet. This is a connection that has a lot of astrologers expecting Trump to be a war time president. There is precedence for this reading. George H.W. Bush also had his natal Sun conjunct the Sibley Mars and he led the U.S. into the first Iraq war.
Though I don’t necessarily disagree with this opinion, I think that is a more obvious way of reading this connection. From the very beginning of his campaign commentators have made much of the way in which Donald Trump has tapped into the anger of the American public. In a horoscope, Mars is the place where you find a person’s (or nation’s) anger. These powerful connections between the Sibley Mars and Trump’s Sun and Moon explain how Trump has become the conduit for the rage felt by a large section of our population.
