Mr. Saturn looks at the 2020 Iowa Caucuses


 Hi kids!!!!! Long time no see.


On Monday February 3, 2020 the Democratic Presidential Primaries will officially commence with the Iowa Caucuses. The day will begin with the ingress of the Moon into Gemini as well as that of Mercury into Pisces, where together these planets will form a mutable square. While Gemini is an air sign associated with communication and intellectual matters, Pisces by contrast is a water sign governing intuition, empathy, and spiritual awareness. The location of an emotional planet like the Moon in an intellectual sign like Gemini and a cerebral,  communicative planet like Mercury in a sensitive water sign like Pisces presents a very interesting paradox. It is my opinion that this aspect is a representative illustration of the choice voters will be grappling with as they try to decide between a moderate or progressive vision for the future of our country. As a result, I believe the Iowa Caucuses will be kicking off the first Presidential election in my lifetime (and Mr. Saturn is no spring chicken) where the American people will actually be concerned with voting for issues that directly affect them like Medicare for All, the future of our Social Security system, Student Loan Forgiveness, and Raising the Minimum Wage, rather than the personalities of the candidates.


The second important aspect that will occur on February 3 will be in the late afternoon when Venus, the Planet of Love, moves into a sextile with Saturn, the Planet of Structure and the Natural Order. Venus will be in the sensitive sign of Pisces, which is about compassion and creativity, while Saturn will be in its home sign of Capricorn where it symbolizes the rules that govern our society. A positive aspect between these two planets usually indicates the establishment of an idealistic and practical association that will mutually benefit the parties involved over the long-term.


With all of this in mind, what can we look forward to in the Iowa primary? I’m sure that you all have your favorite candidate that you would like to see win, however, based on the Astrological aspects I think a quote from Bernie Sanders in his comeback rally in NYC after his heart attack best sums up the situation………


“Are you willing to fight for the person next to you as hard as you’re willing to fight for yourself?”


I believe that’s the sentiment that will win the day in Iowa, and beyond.


Sincerely, Mr. Saturn

Special Democratic Primary Installment


Candidate Profiles

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. I’ve decided to take a departure from the usual fare of weekly horoscopes and instead focus on the natal charts of the various candidates currently running for the Democratic Presidential Nomination.


Why am I doing this? Well, aside from the candidates policies (or lack thereof) and the manufactured images of them the Mainstream Media presents us, aren’t you also curious about what the stars would reveal about who these people are in a spiritual sense? I know I am.


With that said, buckle your seatbelt and let’s investigate exactly who each of these characters are that would dare to want to be the POTUS.



Senator Bernie Sanders

 While Senator Sanders is a Virgo, the natural born critic of the zodiac, he also has an Aries Moon conjunct with Mars, which would serve to make him a relentless fighter for what he believes is right. These Aries planets are in turn opposed and sextiled respectively by a Venus in Libra and Jupiter in Gemini trine, giving him honor, integrity, compassion, and the ability to articulate his ideas in clear, accessible language to the average voter. In addition, he has a Mercury/Uranus trine with Pluto at the midpoint, making him a relentless and progressive seeker of truth and justice. No matter how much the mainstream media tries to either criticize or ignore this man, wherever and whenever people encounter him in person the energy represented in his natal chart projects a genuineness and honesty that is always acknowledged and admired.


Senator Elizabeth Warren

 With both the Sun and Venus in Cancer, Senator Warren doesn’t have to try very hard to project that folksy, Mom vibe, although with a Taurus Moon squaring Pluto in Leo she also has a very definite opportunistic streak as well. This would explain why along with fighting to restructure our country’s problem of vast income inequality she also claims to be an unabashed Capitalist. Her well-known tendency to waffle when confronted by the media is the result of her having a Mercury/Mars conjunction in Gemini squaring Saturn in Virgo and aligning with Neptune in Libra. It’s not so much that her beliefs change, or even that she’s a hypocrite, rather it’s that she wants to succeed and considers flexibility an important tool (at times even a virtue) whenever she is confronted by challenges to what she would hope to achieve. Of course there is also her Cancerian need to want to please everybody and make them happy. Needless to say, she won’t likely go to the mat on a matter if there is a chance that her overall career will be at stake.


Former Vice President Joe Biden

 With 4 major planets in Scorpio (Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) former Vice President Biden is all about power. Add to that the fact that 3 of those Scorpio planets are aligning with Jupiter in Cancer and the fourth, Mars, is squaring Pluto, and what you’ll find with Joe is an arrogant and righteous nature that makes it very easy for him to justify doing basically anything he needs to in order to get ahead and maintain his position. In addition, he has a Saturn/Uranus conjunction in Gemini aligning with Neptune in Libra, making him a very convincing speaker, that is, if you’re not willing to check the facts. From his recent BS about “Corn Pop” to his mistreatment of Anita Hill, from his Obama era nickname of “Working Class Joe” to his infamy as “The Senator from MBNA,” this man is out to get ahead and he doesn’t care how.


Mayor Pete Buttigieg

 Mayor Pete’s Mercury in Aquarius lines up nicely with his Mars in Libra, yet it also squares his Moon in Scorpio, meaning he is a smooth talker that will say and do just about anything to get ahead. Add to this a Capricorn Sun squaring both Saturn and Pluto in Libra and one should also understand that this apparently clean cut cherub is, for the most part, more concerned with his own success than with helping others, although he is willing to be of service if he see’s that it will clearly benefit him to do so. With both Jupiter and the asteroid Ceres conjunct in Scorpio as well as an unaspected Uranus in Sagittarius, Mayor Pete also has a dark side (which he spends a great deal of effort trying to hide). If you don’t believe me consult the Young Turks investigative reporting on his firing of the Black Police Chief in South Bend as well as his fraudulent claims of support from the African-American community in South Carolina. In short, this is a young man on the make who intends to get a seat with the power brokers because deep down he is just like them.


Senator Kamala Harris

 On an obvious level having her Libra Sun in alignment with Saturn in Aquarius would make Kamala Harris a do it by the rules type, although on a subtler level her Mars in Leo squaring Neptune in Scorpio would speak to some deep approval issues and needing to succeed to feel good about herself. Of course her Venus, Uranus, and Pluto conjunction in Virgo would likely cause her to respond to the above observation with, “What’s so bad about wanting to succeed?” Nothing, I guess, yet one should try to be careful about the compromises that are made on the way up when there is such an emotional attachment to “success,” especially since the Senator has an Aries Moon aligning with impetuous Mars in ego driven Leo, whereby covetousness can (and likely will) clash with consistency and, God forbid, integrity.


Senator Corey Booker

 With a Taurus Sun and Virgo Moon in tight alignment, Senator Booker is a born reformer, although with his Venus in Aries and Mars retrograde in Sagittarius he likes to talk more like a revolutionary. In essence this rhetoric is nothing more than a harmless smoke and mirrors game he plays with himself in order to motivate his Mercury in Taurus out of its comfort zone ideology, which, in turn, is driven by a Jupiter/Pluto conjunction in detail oriented Virgo that aligns with dreamy Neptune in control oriented Scorpio. Corey Booker is a curious mix of progressive fighter and corporate negotiator who is willing to start off fighting for what’s right, but then, at a moments notice, can compromise from revolution right down to something less (and sometimes even further than that) when his advancement is at stake.


Andrew Yang

 As a Capricorn Andrew Yang likes to project that he is both logical and practical, although with the Moon and Mars conjunct in the often zany sign of Sagittarius, he can also confuse theory and practice like a naïve traveller will mistake a map for the terrain, sometimes resulting in unforeseen and disappointing outcomes. Essentially he is an idea guy who consistently makes the fundamental mistake of believing that improvising a good idea out of a bad situation will effectively create a new paradigm. Of course this doesn’t take into consideration that his idea might actually just be a rearrangement of circumstances rather than any real change. Nevertheless, with a Mercury/Venus conjunction in Aquarius he remains unflappable and with a Jupiter/Saturn trine in Pisces and Cancer respectively he will always be a maverick because, frankly, he doesn’t like anyone to tell him what to do. He needs to make his own mistakes, but do we need them?


Senator Amy Klobuchar

 A double Gemini with Mercury in the same sign, Senator Klobuchar is convinced that the world is exactly as she believes it to be. With Mars in Aries in turn fueling this manifesto she is therefore all about getting out there and getting things done. If this sounds well intentioned though severely limited, it is. It gets even worse when one realizes that in her natal chart she has both Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn, meaning that she will be experiencing simultaneous Jupiter and Saturn returns as we move into 2020. At the very least these returns will likely represent a major challenge to her philosophical outlook, which given her generally mutable nature as a Gemini and the affects of her Mars could result in her losing touch with what the people really need in favor of imposing an ideology she is convinced of. She might need an Ebenezer Scrooge moment in order to ultimately find out what the truth is, but will that be what the rest of us need if she’s the POTUS?


Representative Tulsi Gabbard


With the Sun, Venus, and Mars all conjunct in Aries and aligning with both Neptune and Pluto, Tulsi Gabbard is essentially an earthly manifestation of the Goddess of War; impetuous, courageous, and not afraid of fighting the good fight. Add to this a regal Leo Moon and the asteroid Ceres in Cancer and she is also quite capable of embodying the protective Mother Archetype as well. Perhaps though the most significant aspect in her chart is a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Libra, which then opposes Mercury in Aries. While on the one hand this line up would make her contemplative and reflective, on the other hand it would also make her outspoken, dynamic, and individualistic. It is quite appropriate that she would serve in the military and no surprise that it would be as a Medical Officer. A telling example of what is essentially a very contradictory chart would be her decision to not run again for her Congressional seat and instead commit to her Presidential campaign where she is only polling at around 2%.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #70 Weekly Horoscopes for 1/28-2/3, 2019

Weekly horoscopes for 1/28-2/3, 2019


 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

At long last the Government has reopened and Rump’s wall turned out to be nothing more than a cave. Thank you Speaker Pelosi for showing us all how a leader should act when issues arise and priorities need to be kept straight. As we move into 2019, I would hope that you and your fellow Democrats will put your focus on an intelligent Immigration Policy, Universal Health Care, and an Infrastructure Plan for our country. In the meantime, leave the Mafia in the White House and their shenanigans to Special Investigator Mueller and his team. “The chickens will come home to roost” on that one, for sure.


Aries- With Uranus and Mars in your sign this week you shouldn’t be lacking for energy, however, with Mars also pulling into an eventual square with transformative Pluto in your House of Career it will be absolutely necessary that you direct all this energy into a constructive channel or else you may just end up like a mouse on a wheel going nowhere. Saturn in your House of Career should provide the guilt necessary to prevent you going too far astray, while at the same time Neptune behind the scenes will provide the insecurity to maintain the torque between a fear of failing and wishing to be a star. In short, if you hope (expect) to arrive on the other side of the ocean of your dreams, then simply shut up and keep rowing……Stroke! Stroke! Stroke!


Taurus- Saturn and Pluto in your House of Career are no doubt putting you through the wringer as they challenge you to both let go of what doesn’t work while also embracing new challenges. Of course this is probably quite exhausting, especially as Jupiter and Venus in your House of Transformation keep dangling delusions of grandeur in front of you like a carrot baiting a donkey. Try not to let your expectations lead you too far astray from the reality of what is actually going on at any given moment, after all, if you’re ever going to succeed you’ll have to learn to prioritize. Let the Sun and Mercury going through your House of Career show you how success begins by dealing with your immediate problems.


Gemini- With Mars in Aries and your House of Dreams this week you’ll probably want to push an inconvenient truth aside, although with Saturn and Pluto in your House of Shared Resources it’s more likely you’ll be forced by those you’ve inconvenienced to take responsibility for the mess you created. Jupiter and Venus in your House of Relationships squaring Neptune in your House of Public Image will probably cause your popularity to slide, especially if you insist on thinking that everything is always about you. Hot flash from the newsroom, even though you may be a legend in your own mind no one else really thinks like you, which means grow the *uck up and try to have a little compassion for those who aren’t as fabulous as you are…….Really!


Cancer- If you can manage to remember the song, “put all your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile,” you may actually be able to get through this week without too much discomfort. Mars in your House of Career will be moving into a square with transformative Pluto in your House of Partnerships, which means you might have to push back if someone on the job oversteps your boundaries. Venus and Jupiter in your House of Work should help to keep things copasetic, but that’s only if you can manage to take the high road and kill’em with kindness rather than an actual weapon. At the same time Neptune in your House of Philosophy will be aligning nicely with Saturn, indicating that if you do keep your cool then your natural leadership skills will no doubt become clearly recognizable to everyone present (and you never know who may be watching).


Leo- This may be one of those weeks where you find yourself frustrated by a supervisor or co-worker who is threatened by your level of productivity and, as a result, tries to passive/aggressively sabotage you. Getting angry about this won’t help, so instead try taking some time off and indulging Venus and Jupiter in your House of Fun. You’ll likely come back all rejuvenated from your little sojourn to find the big boss reaming out your saboteur for letting things fall behind. Saturn in your House of Work aligning with Neptune in your House of Transformation could take this whole business one step further with you actually ending up in charge of the manipulator. As a great American Author once wrote, “In America someone is always rising and falling,” or as Mr. Saturn say’s, “What goes around comes around.”


Virgo- What do you want? Mars in your House of Transformation aligning with Venus and Jupiter at your Foundation would indicate that the Force is with you, but what are you going to do with it? Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity aligning with Neptune in your House of Partnerships is all about giving a tangible form to your visions through finding the right people to partner up with. As a result, don’t hesitate to reach out and reach high, in other words, look to match up with individuals you admire and then let yourself be surprised when you find out the feeling is mutual. The Sun and Mercury in your House of Work would further indicate that any alliances that come about now will likely share the same goals of service and concern for the common good. So what are you waiting for? Let the revolution begin!


Libra- As the Sun and Mercury pass through your House of Creativity something you communicate now either publicly or privately could set off a string of events that you will be able to look back on later this year and acknowledge, “that was when everything changed.” Saturn and Pluto down at the very bottom of your chart have been hinting at a catharsis like this for a while, but now with Mars in your House of Partnerships and both Jupiter and Venus in your House of Communication the seeds are about to be sown for a new you and a new world. With Neptune in your House of Work and Routines you may not initially realize what’s going on, but you will soon enough as the Lunar Arc begins the week in your House of Self Worth and the deep sign of Scorpio and ends up on the cusp of your House of Fun in the enlightened sign of Aquarius. As a Philosopher once said, “Every man and every woman is a star!”  Now it’s your turn.


Scorpio- A Poet once wrote, “We worship “yes” and/ Suffer “no” ignoring the/ Question of balance.” As Venus and Jupiter in your House of Self Worth make you charming and expansive, Mars in your House of Routines will provide the energy to bring joy and humor wherever you go. On the other hand, with Saturn in your House of Communication squaring Mars you may encounter more than a few spoilsports in your travels. The truth of life is that both positive and negative views need to exist, although it is hard for either of them to comprehend this when they irritate each other and someone gets annoyed. Neptune in your House of Creativity represents your enlightenment at this time, as the planet that governs both

illusion and higher consciousness helps you to realize that true balance comes by juggling (and perhaps even dropping) the balls life throws at you.


Sagittarius- Jupiter and Venus are still in your sign so let the good times roll! Particularly as Venus will be moving into a smooth alignment with Uranus in your House of Fun and Jupiter will still be connected happily with Mars, who is also in your House of Fun. Woo! Woo!  Saturn in your House of Self Worth may try to make you feel a little guilty, especially with Neptune in your House of Family dredging up those memories of when too much fun on your part managed to annoy some old fart in your life. Well “Beano” to them! The Sun and Mercury in progressive Aquarius and your House of Ideas should provide a liberating influence, especially around the middle of the week when the Moon enters your sign and feeling good just feels right, no matter what any inhibited, judgmental holy roller may think. At least for the next little while make your God of choice Dionysius and worship wine, women, and song (or whatever else may float your boat).


Capricorn- Your Ego and Id may decide to play a little ping pong in your head this week, just try to chaperone matters as best you can, especially since those two can get a bit cutthroat about winning and losing. Venus and Jupiter in your House of the Subconscious will want to act out like a playful child, while Mars at your Foundation may inadvertently get a little carried away. Of course Saturn in your sign will be buttoned down and proper, but be careful. Neptune in your House of Communication may end up committing a little Freudian slip or two, but don’t be embarrassed, especially if whatever leaks out is the way you really feel and you just need to own up to it. Everything should turn out okay in the end, particularly with the Sun and Mercury transiting your House of Self Worth and the progressive sign of Aquarius. Like the song say’s “It’s your thing, do what you want to do, I can’t tell you who to sock it to.”


Aquarius- No one really knows anything for sure, but we can come to understandings based on what we’re willing to experience and learn. Mercury and the Sun in your sign now represent your natural (and often insatiable) curiosity, which is getting some real incentive from Mars transiting your House of Communications and Venus and Jupiter in your House of Dreams. As the French Poet Rimbaud once wrote, “go everywhere and do everything, no one would hurt you anymore than if you were a corpse.” Wise advice, just don’t go believing you’re bulletproof, no matter what Neptune in your House of Self Worth may try to tell you. Instead listen to Saturn and Pluto and the revolution they’re attempting to put together  behind the scenes. It’s a big world out there and you’re not going to see it all in one day, right?


Pisces- With Venus and Jupiter in your House of Career and Mars in your House of Self Worth, you are no doubt feeling ambitious now, however, be careful what you commit to. Saturn and Pluto in solid Capricorn are trying to remind you that in dreams begin responsibilities, therefore make sure you understand that after this current fiery period is over there’s still going to be a lot more work to do in order to finish what you started. Neptune in your sign should give you imagination to spare, let’s just hope that includes the ability to problem solve as well. As Venus ends the week aligning nicely with Uranus, you could get a surprise you didn’t count on; lucky you, just make sure you get back to work when it’s over.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #56 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/8-10/14, 2018

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/8-10/14, 2018


 Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars.

Well, Bart O’Kavanaugh has been confirmed and I have a feeling all of his cronies who couldn’t recall anything are probably raising a glass now in their respective country clubs. On the other side, I salute all those who came forward (both men and women) to support the allegations of both Ms. Ford and Ms. Ramirez, too bad the FBI was told not to talk to you.

But most of all, as far as Mr. Saturn is concerned, Christine Blasey Ford is a true heroine who showed more Judicial temperament, more courage, and more leadership than whining Bart did.

So now all of you Ladies out there (as well as the men who love and respect you) know what you need to do in November. We can give ourselves a Holiday Gift of a Blue Congress so we can start to begin to fix this mess we’re in. Let Justice be done on the rebound.




Aries- The week will begin with a New Moon in your House of Relationships squaring Pluto in your House of Career, which could mean the time has come for you to re-evaluate your associations with certain colleagues. Venus retrograde in your House of Transformation squaring Mars in your House of Dreams will also involve your professional associations, particularly in regards to how some of your commitments may actually be holding you back from recognizing your full potential. As Mercury changes sign from Libra to Scorpio it will join Venus in your House of Transformation and subsequently oppose Uranus retrograde in your House of Self Worth, signaling that perhaps it’s time to not only talk the talk, but walk the walk in regards to what you can no longer live with if your dreams are ever going to come true.


Taurus- If you’ve been feeling like there aren’t enough hours in the day to find time for what’s important to you, then maybe it’s time to eliminate some of the stuff you just do without really thinking about it. The New Moon in your House of Routines will be squaring Pluto in your House of Philosophy, meaning that if your time is at a premium, then you should be reorganizing it based on your priorities and not anyone else’s. In support of this, Venus retrograde in your House of Relationships squaring Mars in your House of Career would further speak to all the creative energy you have pent up due to demands being made on you by individuals too lazy to do for themselves. As Mercury enters your House of Relationships and opposes Uranus, don’t be afraid to kick these freeloaders to the curb, you’ll be glad you did.


Gemini- The New Moon in your House of Creativity squaring Pluto in your House of Transformation this week will be about letting go of whatever you feel is weighing you down, whether that be a person, idea, or situation. Venus retrograde squaring Mars could find you wanting to either step away or completely revamp a situation at work, just make sure you’re not cutting off your nose to spite your face. Mercury entering into the secretive sign of Scorpio to oppose Uranus retrograde behind the scenes could see you having to scramble because of something you did in the past that is coming back to haunt you. If you can take the hit for this indiscretion then come clean and tell the truth. Continuing to lie may just make things worse and may even get too out of hand even for your prodigious talents at fabrication.


Cancer- The New Moon in your House of Foundations squaring Pluto in your House of Relationships could find you re-evaluating some friendships that may have run their course. You hate to let go of stuff, but this may just be a time when you have to let someone drift away into the void of their own ego. This may end up being a blessing in disguise as Venus retrograde in your House of Creativity rubs passionately against Mars in your House of Transformation and you suddenly discover that with one less person to worry about in your life you suddenly have more time to pursue something far more interesting, like whatever you damn well please. As Mercury enters into your House of Creativity and opposes Uranus in your House of Dreams, take a chance on trusting an inspiration, you may find you have what it takes to make yourself ecstatically happy!


Leo- If you’ve been working too much and neglecting someone special in your life then you better just stop that shit right now! Venus retrograde squaring Mars in your House of Relationships would indicate that being too tired after work is not going to fly for very much longer, so if you don’t want to end up sleeping alone then you’d better find that lost libido of yours. The New Moon in your House of Communication squaring Pluto would suggest that much of the mojo you invest in work is entirely misplaced, especially if half of it is spent complaining how much you’re suffering there. Why don’t you redirect some of your whining into a bouquet of flowers, a bottle of wine, or at least a willingness to pay attention to someone other than your disgruntled self? Maybe a little Whoopee will help to bust through whatever is damming you up and you’ll turn into the courageous adventurer we all know you are?


Virgo- The week will start with a New Moon in your House of Self Worth and it will be squaring Pluto in your House of Creativity, meaning that if you’ve been looking to break out of a rut then this is the time to do it! Venus retrograde in your House of Communication will be squaring Mars in your House of Routines, so why don’t you try a little experiment? Like stop doing shit you don’t like to do, especially if you’re just using it to distract yourself from what you really want to do (but may be too scared to try)? As Mercury enters the sign of Scorpio it will be aligning with Saturn in your House of Creativity, which will in turn be aligning with Uranus in your House of Philosophy; in other words, if not now, when in regards to your dreams? If not here, where? Think about it…..but not for long before you DO something….anything… long as it’s different than your same old, same old.


Libra- As the New Moon in your sign squares Pluto in your House of Foundations, you can rest assured some big changes are coming, you just won’t know what they are until they happen. Mars in your House of Creativity should mean you’re up for whatever comes along, while Venus retrograde in your House of Self Worth would indicate that what will see you through this time won’t necessarily be based on what you have, but rather who you are and the magickal power of what your essence will attract. Do you believe? As Mercury enters your House of Self Worth to oppose Uranus retrograde in your House of Transformation, stop trying to imagine what the bumps in the road may be and instead “Keep your eyes on the road and your hands upon the wheel……”Let it roll baby, roll….”


Scorpio- With Venus, Jupiter, and Mercury all in your sign now you should have the charm, insight, and eloquence to get whatever you want…..So, what do you want? The New Moon behind the scenes in Libra angling with Pluto in your House of Thinking would suggest that whatever you would hope to accomplish will likely have more to do with what you’re willing to let go of rather than worrying about what you can acquire. I know that sounds more Zen than you’d care to hear, but with the Lunar Arc this week progressing through the depths of your mind, whatever you would hope to find in the future will likely be more about how you can ask questions creatively (which is really voicing your intuitions) rather than remaining in the comfort zone of your current understandings and getting meaningless assurances of what you already know.


Sagittarius- The New Moon in your House of Groups angling against Pluto in your House of Self Worth will be requiring you to move past the judgments of others, especially if you’ve said or done something as of late that was a matter of conscience. Mars in your House of Communications squaring Venus behind the scenes would indicate that your words have had a great deal of power, just realize that telling the truth can make you just as many enemies as friends and there’s no accounting for taste. As Mercury, the planet of communication, moves behind the scenes in your chart, make sure to get back to a familiar routine in which you can relax and feel productive again; leave fixing the world to those who are arrogant enough to believe they can. You did your bit and you should be proud.


Capricorn- The New Moon will be in your House of Career to start the week and it will be squaring Pluto in your sign, meaning that you will likely be challenged to let go of something you might have once thought was important but right now may not be all that and a bag of chips. Mars in your House of Self Worth squaring Venus retrograde in your House of Dreams could either motivate you to try and hold on like a pit bull or else let go like a fist when you open your hand; it’s up to you so make sure you’re seeing the forest for the trees before allowing yourself to worry that all may be lost. As Mercury moves into your House of Dreams to square Uranus retrograde in your House of Creativity, you may just discover that whatever has departed from your life may just turn out to be a blessing in disguise by providing a space for something better.


Aquarius- Mars in your sign squaring Venus retrograde in your House of Career may have you scrambling desperately to try and salvage what is seemingly a lost cause, especially since an unpredictable Uranus retrograde is lingering in your House of Foundations to oppose Mercury as it enters the revealing and often blunt sign of Scorpio. Something you had hoped would remain hidden is now going to be in the open for all to see. The New Moon in your House of Philosophy squaring Pluto behind the scenes will be trying to tell you that ambition has been your undoing in this matter, not some conspiracy on the part of those who have asked sensible questions that you simply felt above having to answer. Only the true king can pull the sword from the stone….Amen.


Pisces- Sometimes the journey to make a dream come true is meant to change us rather than our getting what we think we want. The New Moon in your House of Transformation squaring Pluto in your House of Dreams could perhaps be indicating that this is such a time or, on the other hand, any delays that are occurring now could be hinting that the time is not right yet for your ambitions to be fulfilled? Mars behind the scenes is probably making it hard for you to accept this, especially as it squares Venus retrograde in your House of Philosophy, which keeps your desire in front of you like a carrot baiting a donkey. As Mercury enters the secretive sign of Scorpio and your House of Philosophy, an important piece of information could be revealed in the near future that will either indicate you should remain patient, or else move on once and for all.

Looking Back at “An Astrologist Examined the Trump Family’s Star Charts” published in Cosmo Online 2/9/2017

In January of 2017 I was hired by Cosmopolitan Online Magazine to analyze the Astrological Birth Chart of then President Elect Donald Trump along with the charts of his immediate family, specifically Melania Trump, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner. The article was published on February 9, 2017 with the title “An Astrologist Examined the Trump Family’s Star Charts and the Results Are Crazy.”

I thought it would be interesting to republish this piece on the day that marks Mr. Trump’s first full year in office in order to see if what I originally wrote bears any resemblance to  the current situation.

What you are about to read is what I originally submitted to Cosmo before their editorial staff made changes. I was disappointed at what was removed from my original text, so I am happy at this point to be able to present  my original, unadulterated views on what the man many of us refer to as #45 was likely going to do during his first year in office.


Analysis of the Trump Family Birth Charts

 by T.C. Eisele


 Donald Trump born June 14, 1946

A natal or “birth” chart is a basic tool Astrologers use to gain insight into an individual’s personality. In looking at the birth chart of Donald Trump we are presented with a clear example of “what you see is what you get.”

Beginning with an opposition between his Gemini Sun and Sagittarius Moon, the stage is immediately set for a natural conflict between Mr. Trump’s emotions and ego that can often result in his having difficult relations with others. These difficulties are enhanced by a harsh relationship between Mercury, the planet of communication in the emotional sign of Cancer, and Neptune, the planet of illusion, showing a tendency for Mr. Trump to be convinced that the truth is whatever he feels it should be.

His Gemini Sun is also in conjunction with Uranus and works powerfully with Mars in Leo to make Donald Trump proud, individualistic, and highly unpredictable. An addition of Jupiter in Libra to this mix amplifies all of the aforementioned qualities as well as providing a continuous need for Donald Trump to be in control of any situation he is in. A Jupiter-Uranus trine further symbolizes an almost magical ability to manifest whatever he needs, although from an esoteric perspective, Magical Power that is directed by the ego instead of the Higher Self can ultimately result in one’s undoing rather than success.

It is interesting that Mr. Trump began his race for the White House in the year of his Jupiter return, a 12-year cycle traditionally associated with expansion. His Inauguration was approximately a month after the actual return and on that day Jupiter was in square to a conjunction in his birth chart of Venus and Saturn in Cancer. This is an alignment usually indicating someone who is both loyal and family oriented, although when mixed with the egocentric qualities previously cited would also explain the controversial first weeks of the Trump administration that were dominated by an unapologetic cronyism and “alternate facts”.

Jupiter will linger in this square to Mr. Trumps Venus-Saturn conjunction for a while and also include transiting Pluto in Capricorn. As result we could very well see this Presidency turn into a Reality TV Show over the Summer with a plot line more out of Machiavelli or “The House of Borgia” rather than the All-American, well scripted images we usually see coming out of the White House.


Melania Trump born April 26, 1970

Because there is no record for the time of day when Melania was born it is not known whether her Moon is in late Sagittarius or early Capricorn. If it’s in Sag it would be conjunct her husband’s moon, which is a great indicator of emotional compatibility and shared values. However, if her Moon is in early Capricorn (which is my guess) it would square her husband’s Neptune and essentially motivate them to see each other as whatever they wish; he as the powerful provider and her as the beautiful trophy.

This fantasy continues when we look at her Capricorn Moon in aspect to both Jupiter in Scorpio and a Sun-Saturn conjunction in Taurus, a combination indicating the ability to attract whatever Melania desires from her marriage as all three of these planets aspect her husband’s emotional Mercury.

With a powerful Venus-Pluto alignment, Melania fits snuggly with her husbands Venus-Saturn conjunction symbolizing attachments to home and family. In addition, her Venus in Taurus provides a strong tension to The Donald’s Mars in Leo serving to insure plenty of fire works between them (both romantic and otherwise).

The public image of Melania has so far been that of a subservient and dim spouse, however, with a grounded Mercury-Pluto relationship in her chart I think she may be somewhat different behind the scenes. After all, she did manage to seduce the man who is our President.

While her Taurus Sun craves luxury and comfort and her Capricorn moon will do whatever it takes to keep the situation going, Melania also possesses a pair of very volatile Mars-Uranus and Mars-Jupiter aspects. With an addition of Neptune to these positions, I suspect that the First Lady can be quite rebellious and is extremely sensitive to anyone trying to control her. While Mr. Trump may drive some of us crazy with his antics, we should rest assured that his wife likely does the same to him.

My overall sense is that if the walls of the White House had eyes (and Melania ever ends up living there) perhaps those halls of power will witness behavior by the First Lady during the next four years that could get her “Fired” by the Boss when they eventually vacate the premises.


Ivanka Trump born October 30, 1981

When it comes to dealing with a powerful personality like Donald Trump, you either agree or disagree, you’re either on the team or you get axed. Nobody gets to agree to disagree with a man like Donald Trump, except maybe his daughter, Ivanka Trump.

With a Venus-Neptune conjunction in Sagittarius aligning nicely with a Jupiter-Pluto conjunction in Libra, on the surface Ivanka is glamorous, privileged, sophisticated, accomplished, and seemingly very lucky. However, with Mars in Virgo aspecting both her Scorpio Sun and Sagittarius Moon, the real lady behind the glamorous mask might be better described by Burt Lancaster’s line in the classic film, “Sweet Smell of Success” when he says to a colleague, “I wouldn’t want to take a bite out of you, you’re a cookie full of arsenic.”

With an additional Saturn-Mercury conjunction in Libra, Ivanka is nobody’s fool. She’s as smart as a whip but is also possessed of the same ruthlessness as her father when it comes to getting what she wants. This similarity results from the fact that they both possess an afflicted Sag Moon, a placement that can often facilitate the individual believing whatever they want to.

Ivanka also has an interesting anomaly in her chart in the form of Uranus in Scorpio being un-aspected. Generally when a planet has no aspects to it in the birth chart it is an indication that the energy associated with it will be either repressed or uncontrollable.

While Ivanka’s Scorpio Sun is quite well heeled behind her Sag-Libra glamour, that Uranus in Scorpio represents some very deeply rooted issues having to do with control, independence, and power. If she can maintain her cool and learn some important lessons of compromise and humility from the blowback of her Father’s natural hubris, it is quite possible that Ivanka Trump could end up unexpectedly emerging as a kind of Herkimer Diamond amidst a rough Presidency.


Jared Kushner born January 10, 1981

In comparison to the intoxication of power we have witnessed Donald Trump indulge in so far, his Son-in-law Jared Kushner would no doubt be seen as his designated driver. Somebody has to keep this heap on the road and with a Sun-Mercury conjunction in Capricorn working with both Uranus and Pluto, Mr. Kushner has the chutzpah to do so.

Born into privilege, Jared Kushner has seen both the pros and cons of ruthless ambition as a result of the conviction and imprisonment of his father, successful real estate developer Charles Kushner, for tax evasion and witness tampering. With a Pisces Moon, the above incident no doubt left a lasting impression on the young man and combined with his healing Chiron in Taurus and nurturing Ceres in Cancer, he is perhaps the perfect Dark Knight to stand behind the hard charging Mr. Trump.

Kushner is a natural strategist having Mars in powerful alignment with both Jupiter and Saturn, which no doubt serves as a potent antidote to Mr. Trumps arrogant Mercury-Neptune square, making Kushner the perfect Devil’s advocate to the Devil himself. In addition, Kushner’s nurturing Ceres sits right in the lap of Donald Trump’s Venus-Saturn conjunction with all three in turn closely flanked on both sides by the younger man’s Sun and Pluto, thereby making these two men a deeply loyal and Karmic Cabal.

Jared Kushner also possesses the same identical Neptune-Venus conjunction as his wife, which in turn relates back to his own Pluto and Ivanka’s Jupiter-Pluto, making this pair the real power couple in the Trump Court. Both of them are smart, driven, and loyal, as well as mutually turned on by power, money, and each other.

The real question though regarding Jared Kushner is if he has learned enough from the mistakes of his father to truly be of service to his new mentor before Mr. Trump ends up making the mistake of believing the United States Government is either his personal fiefdom or a Reality TV show.
