Every person is a mystery, but Donald Trump's personality is especially mysterious, mercurial, and hard to pin-down.
Astrology is a tool to help us unravel that mystery, providing a look into exactly who the real Trump is, and considering the number of zodiac charts I've interpreted, this one is especially revealing.
I don't want to waste much time, so I'll get right down to it.
Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946 at 10:54 AM in Queens, New York.
Happy birthday, Donald.
Gemini, with a Leo Rising and a Sagittarius Moon
Being a Gemini makes someone quick-witted, gifted at double-talk, shifty, and changeable.
The rising sign is indicative of someone's outward appearance and the first impression they make on others, and Leo rising people are known for being full of bluster, marked by a distinctive "mane" of hair. They're outspoken and proud, roaring at those who criticize them or who wound their egos.
The moon governs our inner nature and our emotions. Having a moon in a fiery sign like Sagittarius makes someone prone to hotheaded outbursts, and gives someone a strong enterprising motivation for international expansion. Sagittarius rules over international travel and entrepreneurship.
Sagittarius is also known for being blunt and for speaking out dogmatically, whether or not it's appropriate and regardless of the setting.
Steve Bannon and Anne Coulter are both Sagittarius suns, for instance, so having his moon in a sign like Sagittarius gives Donald Trump the same outspoken quality, but his Gemini sun makes it so he could say one thing one day, and change his mind the next.
Where His Ambition Comes From
One major influence over Donald Trump's chart is having Saturn in the First House, causing challenges with his own sense of identity.
Having Saturn, the planet of restriction, challenges, and discipline in the First House of identity and self-expression causes a strong reluctance to release emotional energy.
Emotions of those with Saturn in the First House are extremely complicated and intense, and there may be a great deal of fear about what "personal disasters" could happen if those emotions are released.
A First House Saturn suggests that Donald Trump's career relates to a personal desire to attain prominence in order to overcome these problems of self-expression.
The goals of a person with a First House Saturn include personal happiness, financial security, general well-being, and personal fulfillment in order to overcome feelings of fear and self-doubt, and to face the challenges of the outer world with courage and self-confidence.
How He Responds To Criticism
One of the most challenging aspects in Donald Trump's birth chart is having his Sun (Gemini) squaring his Rising Sign/Ascendent (Sagittarius).
Having the Sun squaring the Ascendent indicates an inability to face facts. When a Sun squares the Ascendant, it means that when the person expresses themselves, they unknowingly cause others to react negatively. They tend to come on a bit too strongly and others resent them for it.
This person might display a tendency to have trouble convincing people that they are sincere and honest. This aspect indicates a person who comes on a bit strong, which doesn't sit quite right with people, and they may be resented for it.
This aspect shows an incredible inability to face facts about oneself that are painfully obvious to everyone else, although improvements can be made by working to attract others' attention and praise rather than by demanding their submission.
This aspect also indicates that there may have been difficulties with superiors in formative years, causing the person to have grown up with a chip on their shoulder about owning up to their own faults.
How He Deals With Relationships
Another challenging aspect to this particular chart is having Venus, the planet of love squaring off to Neptune, the planet of delusion.
This aspect indicates a tendency toward an idealism that borders on -- and often crosses over to -- delusion. With the square, there can be a difficult emotional inhibition in relationships with others.
This person may not understand their own emotional world, and may feel that navigating their own feelings is a lost cause, preferring to keep their focus on the external world -- on what they can see, touch, and hear.
The problem here is that without the self-reflection necessary for a relationship to grow, there can be a dangerous tendency to search outside oneself for a "perfect" though unattainable lover.
The truth is that with this aspect, a person is actually unprepared and unwilling to actually commit themselves to a real flesh-and-blood person instead, they choose partners on whom they can most easily project their own fantasies.
