At the end of November 2015, transiting Jupiter began to form a square aspect to Donald Trump's natal Moon. Lasting until the beginning of August 2016, this has enhanced his sense of patriotism, bringing with it a concern with social justice. He has been easily outraged, self-righteous and intolerant under this planetary influence. However, when this aspect ends, he will need to adopt a different outlook in order to clear up any conflicts that have occurred during the past few months. Unfortunately, this planetary aspect has made him harshly critical, unfairly judgemental, and driven by his emotions.
During the same period, transiting Jupiter has also been in a square aspect to Mr Trump's natal Sun. This influence tends to bring a lack of self-restraint. We've already seen him going overboard and in the coming months he will have to learn to control himself. He will also have to know when to stop. I get the feeling that by September his confidence may suffer a setback. Will this make him give up his ambition to become president? This planetary influence can sometimes trigger conflicts or legal problems. Over-confidence may lead to loss.
In mid-December 2015 transiting Saturn began to form a positive trine aspect to Donald Trump's natal Pluto. Lasting until the end of September 2016, this influence will have given him the ability to move towards fulfilling his ambitions. He has the capability to work harder than at almost any other time in his life. His level of self-assertion has made others realise that he is a shrewd operator. They know they have to take Donald Trump seriously. This planetary influence brings remarkable powers of endurance - but it ends in September. So, will Mr Trump be able to sustain the momentum until the election in November?
At the beginning of May 2016 transiting Uranus began to form a sextile aspect to Mr Trump's natal Sun. This planetary influence will continue until April 2017 and may bring him a sudden impulse to change course and improve his circumstances - but in what way? He could experience considerable unrest and inner tension, as well as unexpected setbacks. However, this planetary aspect mostly has a positive effect during which he will be seeking change and progress. Ever dramatic, forthright with his opinions, and showing leadership qualities, Mr Trump will promote himself as a supporter of the underdogs of society - or, at least, those he considers to be the underdogs of society.
By the end of May 2016 transiting Uranus will be square Mr Trump's natal Saturn. This aspect will last until the end of January 2018 and it will be a very testing time. Certain events will challenge his sense of order, discipline, duty, and his opinions about the world. He may encounter disruptions that will make it hard for him to understand what is going on. He could be forced to revise some of his ideas, and he might become frustrated by what he sees as unbearable restrictions. It's possible that Mr Trump may suddenly change his mind about something, and his actions will come as a surprise. This planetary influence will bring a lot of tension, and this could have consequences for his health.
Since 2015, the Solar Arc Sun has been in conjunction with Donald Trump's natal Ascendant. This is about to reach its peak, but its effects will continue until 2018. This planetary influence will see Mr T strutting like a rooster and propelling himself even further into the spotlight. The Sun represents power, success, ambition, and the ego, and in this position could bring increased recognition and personal achievement. He will have the opportunity to promote himself - and his agenda - by demonstrating great confidence in his own abilities. The Solar Arc Sun is not only in conjunction with Mr Trump's natal Ascendant, but in 2017, it will also change signs. When this happens, there is likely to be a dramatic change in many areas of his life.
The Solar Arc Moon is in opposition to the natal Ascendant in Mr Trump's chart from now until 2019. This planetary influence could bring adverse publicity, loss of popularity, or dashed hopes. When the Progressed Moon hits the angles of the chart, emotional changes often arise. He may experience uncertainty about how to present himself, finding it hard to be completely honest. He may form a strong contact with a woman - but in what context, I'm not sure, although there could be some sort of emotional attraction.
Solar Arc Jupiter in a quincunx aspect to Donald Trump's natal Midheaven, Venus and Saturn, from now until late 2017, suggests some kind of loss. This planetary influence could indicate too much success and not knowing how to deal with it. It also suggests he may get what he wants but he'll have a huge price to pay. There is always something unbalanced with a quincunx aspect, so if he becomes President, will the level of power be too much for him to handle? It's possible that Mr Trump could overextend himself and take on more than he expected. Overindulgence and exhaustion may result from feeling too optimistic about his own abilities. Learning to fulfil his obligations without having an over-inflated sense of his own importance is the only way to success. However, I feel that he is now trapped into believing that only he can do a certain job, and he might very well end up having to prove it. If he gets to the White House, will 'President Trump' have bitten off more than he can chew?
With his Solar Arc Uranus in a square aspect to the natal Midheaven, from now until Spring 2017, Mr Trump may experience dramatic changes in status or reputation. This planetary influence will bring both excitement and upsets There are likely to be conflicts with authority figures who will view his behaviour as irresponsible or disrespectful. He could rebel against what others think and may even become more flamboyant. A complete career change or relocation is indicated by this planetary aspect. Impatience and a willingness to take bold risks could suddenly alter the entire course of Donald Trump's life...... But in what way?
