Is there an astrological ‘big bang’ ahead for Trump?

While witnessing the latest #trumpmeltdown I was asking myself if the ‘season finale’ for Trump might be near, astrologically. And in fact there are some major cosmic hints, that all is heading towards a real big bang. I can only hope, that there are enough sensible people left around him, to get him pinned down, before he literally hits the ‘red button’ and decides to take everyone with him, rather than being dragged out of office in shame…

According to the ‘Huber Method’ everyone has two points in his chart called K1 and K2. They are the crossing points between the age progression of the birth chart (described by swiss astrologer Bruno Huber) and the age progression of the nodal chart. Alike the nodal axis K1 and K2 are 180 degrees – respectively 36 years – apart from each other. Now when the individual reaches one of these points during his 72 year journey around his chart, (karmic) past meets present. These are key points for personal development and also often points of crisis. The more so, if planets or house cusps are in close orbit.

In Donald Trump’s chart, K1 is closely conjunct the cusp of his 6th house in Capricorn (K2 accordingly to the cusp of his 12th house in Cancer) which is a very strong placement. This axis is the one of “existence” itself, the ‘to be, or not to be’ axis, if you will. You’ll ask yourself ‘How am I to survive?’ both in a material (6th) and a spiritual (12th) way. So Donald Trump came across K1 in 1976, aged 30. In this year not only his career in real estate started to /really/ take off, but he also met his first wife-to-be Ivana, who later became the mother of his first 3 children.

Ok, now fast forward to 2012, when Trump’s point of age progression met K2, the other end of this existential axis. In 2011 he had considered running against Obama in the 2012 election and had him accused of not being born in the United States to discredit him. Obama ridiculed Trump practically in front of the nation at a White House press dinner hosted by the Washington Post, by presenting his american birth certificate and thus proving Trump wrong. It was widely thought, that this might be the end to Trump’s political ambitions. But this hit home in Trumps most vulnerable spot: he has Chiron in Libra in the 3rd house (the house related to communication), conjunct Jupiter (who is exaggerating everything he touches), which translates in having problems with the media and in general one’s own education, knowledge and communication abilities. A placement like this can also make the individual quite obsessive about gathering information about himself. Combined with the placement of his Mercury – who is the planet related to communication – which is in Cancer, this explains his quite emotional tantrums AND on top of all that his Mercury is square Neptune, which is astrologically one of the most telling signs for a) a very imaginative storyteller or b) a pathological liar.

At this point you might ask ‘Ok, interesting, but what has all of that to to with K2?’ Now in my theory – so close before this 2nd point of ‘to be, or not to be’, Trump was so desperate ‘to be (best)’ that he even told lies about the President. But there are red flags you’d better not ignore: at the time of the press dinner transiting retrograde Saturn was spot on the cusp of Trump’s 3rd house, stopping the liar cold in his tracks.

Interesting about his K2 is, that it is conjunct Trump’s natal Saturn and Venus conjunction in the first degrees of the 12th house. This placement seems to me to work sometimes in a ‘love’s labour’s lost’ way. You can either become a winner or a failure, there is not much in between. Difficulties arise around money and / or love relations. Their placement in the 12th house signales that there is a sort of mental prison around these issues and a deep seated fear of losing money, love and control.

We have seen in the past what power transiting Saturn has. In January 2020 transiting Saturn will team up with transiting Pluto and they will both be in exact opposition to Trumps natal Saturn. This will be already felt some months prior, in fact, it has just begun in my opinion. Saturn is famous for finally ending things, Pluto is the planet of renewal and rebirth. Trumps natal Pluto is in the 12th house – you could interpret this as ‘powerful enemies in disguise’. I won’t make predictions, but this is no easy-peasy transit but of ‘big bang’ quality.

A final interesting find: I had the notion to look up Melania’s chart for clues, as surely she would be most affected, if Trump indeed ‘goes down’. In this very moment (and for quite some time) transiting Uranus is (and will be) conjunct Melania’s Sun. This transit stands for one of the most revolting times of ones life. One of wild instability and chaos, more real than ever and limitations placed upon the individual (by themselves or others) might be blown away. This aspect is also one of the most liberating. We’ll see, what she will make of it.

Never in my wildest dreams I would have thought, that someone like Trump would inspire me to spend quite some time to look into all of this … but his Sun is conjunct my Moon and his Moon is opposite my Moon, while his Leo Mars is opposite my Aquarius Sun – all of this is apparently a real trigger 😉


You and Me and Karma makes Three … part 2

And it’s a wrap. Well at least a temporary one around my right wrist. 😉

This is the follow up to my post from early march “upps … or: You and Me and Karma makes Three


I visited the charming “Rabenschwarz” (meaning raven-black) Tattoo Parlour today and it took only about 10 minutes and that was that. Now Neptune & Saturn will battle infinitely on my arm.

I really like how it turned out 🙂


As the date was given by Calina, the tattoist, I just didn’t wanted to check the event chart beforehand. When I drew it up as I got home today, I couldn’t help laughing, as it is quite befitting this whole Karma-Tattoo-Thing. This whole chart is very very powerful.


The most significant thing about it is probably the mutable T-square between Saturn in adventurous Sagittarius on cusp of the 3rd house (communication), Neptune in dreamy Pisces in the 5th house (romance) and Jupiter in 11th house (hopes & wishes) in communicative Virgo. In short: reality and dreams are very well connected today 🙂
They are connected to the nodal axis as well, with the North Node on cusp of the 12th house. Which is all about Karma. Exploring one’s inner self, connecting the pieces of the puzzle.
My own natal nodal axis is at this moment in time exactly conjunct Jupiter/Neptune btw … reversed however with Neptune on my natal North Node in my 7th house of relationships.

As Mercury’s still retrograde, words don’t come easy, so I’ll leave it with this. Fellow astrologers please feel free to comment, there’s a lot in it. 🙂


upps … or: You and Me and Karma makes Three

Sometimes it seems a whole lotta karma can be set in motion with the slightest of triggers. In my case this was a very short word. Well technically not even a real word. Just ‘upps’ (german for ‘whoops’).

It took me some time to figure out the astrological triggers. Rather unsurprisingly all four of the ‘usual suspects’ were involved – namely Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. Now, this is something that shakes you to the core and turns your world upside down. I had a long talk with N.Y. based astrologer Dawn Bodrogi about this and she said “everything is in motion and changing, it’s funny that you’re sounding completely calm about it”. In a way I really am. In a way I’m not. But I’m trying to make the most of it. The road to enlightenment and / or personal evolution isn’t straight. There is no ‘finish line’ in sight. Maybe it’s behind the next corner. Maybe not. But if I don’t keep moving on, I’ll never know.

While musing about my chart I was doodling planetary symbols and had – out of the blue – the idea to get a very special tattoo befitting this whole situation. I’ve been fascinated with tattoos since my dad got one, when I was about 12. I made it a rule, that every idea that got into my head had to last at least for half a year. With my erratic Gemini moon – so far – none of them did. But since the fascination for astrology is as old as the one for tattoos for me, this seems to be a solid enough basis 😉

The idea I finally came up with consists of the symbols for Neptune, Infinity and Saturn. As it’s an infinite task to successfully combine one’s dreams with reality. One or the other will always get in the way or have the upper hand – at least for a while. And then the dance begins anew.

When I made the final sketch – which I’m about to discuss with a local tattoo artist in mid april – I suddenly realized, that the little, not even real word ‘upps’ somehow made its way in the drawing as well. Karma is some cunning bitch.
