There definitely is a strong connection from Donald Trump’s Natal chart to the Natal chart of Vladimir Putin. They have a Conjunction together that is exact to the minute! Shown circled in red in the chart is Trump’s Jupiter at 17 Libra 27, and Putin’s Saturn at 17 Libra 27′. The Sabian Symbol of this degree is quite astonishing as well, it is 18 degrees Libra, Two men placed under arrest. The original symbol is: Two men are placed under arrest and taken away to give an accounting for their acts before a tribunal of society.
LIBRA 18 Two men placed under arrest This is a symbol of the maximum demand that may be made of any individual for self-consistency, and of the absoluteness of compulsions on human nature to provide a balance between inner and outer capacities. Implicit in the reversed symbolism is the importance of the self’s responsibility to its own essential characteristics, not as a limitation arising from the role it plays in life but as the necessity that the potentials of value in any given situation be brought to some point of immediate and effective function. The keyword is CONSEQUENCE. When positive, the degree is a heightened challenge to every special talent, and when negative, total inappropriateness of impulse and act.
For Trump, Putin’s Saturn on his Jupiter stimulates his personal resources. The planet is in the sign Libra in the 2nd house of personal resources, and it is retrograde. This keeps the details of his financial interactions with others a very subjective matter. He is not inclined to be as forthcoming as Jupiter usually is known for. The planet does make a Trine to his Sun in the 10th and very near the 11th cusp to give testimony to great potentials for being able to personally benefit in his position in life in terms of career, and also benefit tremendously in connection with his own peer group.
Trump is often making the statement that it would be nice to get along with Russia. That seems to go well with his stimulated Jupiter by the leader of a communist country. However, it has raised the question of whether there already is or has been a connection between these two men and the two countries. With Saturn being the planet identifying Putin, it would seem that there are very particular requirements that may be made in the relationship – as Saturn is more withholding than the normally outgoing and often over-enthusiastic nature of Jupiter would have it. But Putin’s Saturn can be stabilizing to Trump’s Jupiter, and may give a definite focus of where the energies are pointing in the Bromance between the two.
On January 28, 2017, there was a phone conversation between Trump and Putin, and Michael Flynn was also on the conference call. The chart #2 shows Transiting Jupiter setting off Trump’s Natal Square between the planetary pair of Motivation and conscience, Jupiter and Saturn. These two planets in Square aspect in a Natal chart create a situation where the native is constantly under scrutiny. In Conjunction, Square and Opposition in a Natal chart, they indicate a Sharp Destiny*, where the native must conscientiously live up to a dignified moral behavior or be called on the carpet continually to draw his or her consciousness to an understanding of higher levels of conduct.
Apparently the rumors of an unlawful exchange of dialogue between Michael Flynn and the Russian Ambassador to the United States over sanctions had Trump concerned enough to contact the Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
That very day, the Transit Sun was exactly Opposite Trump’s Natal Pluto in the 12th house. The conversation was behind the scenes as the 12th house would indicate. The conversation must have been delving quite deeply in the issue of something preoccupying the three participants of the call, as Pluto is the planet with the keyword of Obsession or preoccupation with matters that are beyond one’s personal control. The intrigue and suspicion engendered by the entire election hacking scenario has everyone waiting to see more information surface, most likely that will be in early March when Trump’s Progressed Moon opposes the US Natal Pluto.
Transit Saturn was creeping up in orb of Conjunction with Putin’s Natal Mars around the time of the call, which is in a convenient Trine aspect with the Natal Mars in Trump’s chart. The aspect is exact around February 18th.
This is the beginning of at least a four year run with Trump as President of the United States. Will Putin have something to do with Trump’s reelection in four years when his Progressed Sun comes to rest opposite Trump’s Natal Sun? See chart #3 and the red line pointing to both a Conjunction of Putin’s Progressed Sun coming to Trump’s Natal Moon in three years, and then to the Opposition to Trump’s Sun shortly after. What could this Solar exchange indicate for the future? Perhaps we will be getting a feel for what it means as things develop – we are just getting started. In this chart we also see that Putin’s Progressed Moon will be making a Conjunction with Trump’s Neptune in approximately five months. Then in about a year and a half, Putin’s Progressed Moon will be Conjunct Trump’s Natal Jupiter and it will set off the Bromance Jupiter/Saturn Conjunction between the two leaders.
To bring things to even more interesting focus, Trump’s Progressed Venus, shown in chart #4, comes to Conjunct the same Jupiter/Saturn Two men placed under arrest mutual zodiacal point at approximately the same time as Putin’s Progressed Moon, shown in chart #3, approaches the ominous or auspicious degree.
* “Jupiter and Saturn in square aspect indicate an ordering of life’s fundamental motives through which the native usually suffers very immediate consequences of even the least neglect or abuse of his own potentials. He finds he must fight continuously for the ideals in which he has come to take the most consistent interest, and also learns that his conscious well-being is wholly dependent on the moral struggles in which he becomes involved almost inevitably at every stage of his experience. . . . . Personal existence under this configuration can become either a great opportunity or else a gradual disintegration of the soul in the very core of itself.” (page 124, Essentials of Astrological Analysis)
