Donald Trump The Egomaniac In Chief

1000x450-trump-solar-system

Since starting his Presidential bid almost a year ago, Donald Trump has been on the top of the news every single day. All along he became the key figure to be reckoned with in the US electoral race. So far, we already wrote 3 articles about Trump narcissistic personality and political revolution. This post is taking a more detailed astro-tarologic approach about his life karma issue and derive what it means for his political future.

Unlike any egomaniac who believes that the earth was only created for them, Trump believes that the entire world revolves around him. He became the center of his personal universe just like the Sun is the solar system center. The karma analysis that follows will show how the Sun is playing a key role is his personality and destiny. Just like his flamboyant yellowed hair and tanned orange face.

Karma Issue: Astro Tarology for Beginners

The following astro-tarologic analysis is easy to understand and does not require any previous technical knowledge. Be prepared to be surprised by the findings depth though.

Step 1 – Natal Chart. Identifying the native’s Ascendant, the Ascendant Ruler in House and Sign is all we need. Those factors will answer the following four questions about the native unconscious inner destiny.
   What: The native karma issue, represented by the Ascendant.
   Who: The karma issue manager, represented by the Ascendant Ruler.
   Where: The manager terrain, represented by the Ascendant Ruler House.
   How: The manager needs, represented by the Ascendant Ruler Sign.
Step 2 – Tarot Cards. Selecting Step 1 corresponding tarot cards is a very simple process. Our favorite tarot cards are from the Symbolon deck.
Step 3 – Interpretation. Narrating the cards stories about the native karma issue then follows.

Step 1 – Trump Natal Chart

Trump Ascendant = Leo (the green curly glyph to the left)
Trump Ruler of Ascendant = Sun (the blue circle with a central dot)
Trump Ruler of Ascendant House = 10 (the Sun segment ring number)
Trump Ruler of Ascendant Sign = Gemini (the yellow Sun sign glyph)

These are all the necessary information needed from Trump natal chart.

Step 2 – Trump Tarot Cards

  • Trump Ascendant = Leo -> Card = “The Ego” = The king on his throne.
  • Trump Ascendant Ruler = The Sun -> Card = also “The Ego” (not showing but replaced by the two Sun cards in terrain and needs on top left).
  • Trump Ascendant Ruler Terrain = 10 -> Card = “The Burden” = A man climbing a long road in the mountain and carrying a rock on his back.
  • Trump Ascendant Ruler Needs = Gemini -> Card = “The Actor” = A man walking on a stage in front of an audience.

Step 3 – Interpretation for Trump life karma.

A. WHAT – Trump Ascendant = Leo sign = “The Ego” card

Symbolon Card "The Ego"
Symbolon Card “The Ego”

Let’s imagine that at the moment of his birth, baby Donald would have been standing in his cradle looking in the Eastern direction as far away as the celestial sphere. His sharp vision would have pierced the zodiac belt in the sign of Leo. As the lion is the animal king by excellence, so is the Leo sign royal symbol.

In our inner movie theater, the Ascendant represents the screenplay high concept issue. The Ascendant Ruler is the story leading character. The Ascendant symbolizes the native life problem and the Ascendant Ruler the life problem manager.

The Ascendant represents the way we appear to others and the Leo Ascendant card shows a king on his throne. So baby Donald was born with the life issue to behave like a king during his entire life. Fighting to gain and keep the royal power has a price to pay, that of the heart sacrifice. Carl Jung once stated that the opposite of love is not hate but power.

The king’s power-love dilemma is the core issue of Trump’s life story. The constant search for power implies a self-centered megalomania personality with no room for love. Only when he will lose his power, willfully or not, will Trump be able to access his heart. Trump can either have power or love, but not both at the same time.

B. WHO – Trump Ascendant Ruler = Sun = “Ego” card

Symbolon Card "The Ego"
Symbolon Card “The Ego”

If it was not enough to have the Ascendant life issue requiring to behave like a king, Trump’s Ascendant Ruler –the leading character of his inner movie theater story– is the Sun itself. So, it is a royal character who is in charge of managing a royal dilemma. We can hear Trump father encouraging young Donald inner royal character to follow and expand the Trumps dynasty. This double inner royal presence (issue and manager) makes it almost impossible for Donald to abdicate voluntarily his power for love. Donald double ego karma makes him a super heartless egomaniac.

C. WHERE – Trump Ascendant Ruler Terrain = 10 = “The Burden” card

Symbolon Card "The Burden"
Symbolon Card “The Burden”

The card shows an old man who not only is climbing a long road in the mountains, but also carries a heavy burden on his back. This very demanding effort requires a powerful stamina and an enduring capacity. Those are vital responsible traits needed in Trump’s real estate developer activities. From concept to conclusion, there is a long road for any major real estate project. Not only does such a project require the developer stamina and endurance to address all endless day-by-day  issues but also carry the investors on his back until the finish line. Quite a long and difficult marathon road. Real estate development is definitively not for everybody !!

In politics those qualities were all along underestimated by his “anti-Trump” adversaries expecting wrongly his fall. He eliminated one by one all other 16 Republican candidates and still shows relentless strength to reach his final Presidential objective.

Like the man on the card, Trump has an Atlas complex who feels responsible for everything and everyone in the world. Because of his Atlas complex, no task is too big for him. Carrying the world on his shoulder cannot be delegated and implies that Trump must only rely on himself and be the holder of universal certainties. His right or wrong opinions are the only one that matter for himself and anybody else. His Atlas complex combined with his megalomania is very oppressive for himself and even more so for others.

D. HOW – Trump Ascendant Ruler Needs = Gemini = “The Actor” card

Symbolon Card "The Actor"
Symbolon Card “The Actor”

The actor is the key card to understand how Trump functions. Combined with his megalomania, Trump the actor would only accept leading roles such as business and political top leader. Whether he is fully aware of it or not, Trump is always living his life on borrowed identities. Revealing the man behind the masks doesn’t seem to be a Trump option.

Paraphrasing the actor playing a doctor in a TV show, Trump could very well say “I am not a king but I play one on TV.” Trump the political actor raises the four following questions.
(1) Are the required acting qualities to play the role of a political candidate good enough to also play the role of a President?
(2) Would an actor playing the role of a President better than a President himself qualify him to be elected as President?
(3) Is the US ready for an actor playing the role of the actual President?
(4) Can Trump fake it all the way to the Presidency?

For questions (1) and (2), we believe that Trump the actor is capable to play both the candidate and the President roles and be a better actor than anyone else. Question (3) is more nuanced. We surely are living unusual times that are propitious for unusual circumstances. On today’s US political scene, the division between Democrats and Republicans is more and more replaced by the division between the population and the establishment, between the populist outsiders (Sanders and Trump) and the traditional insiders (Clinton and Romney). Similarly to the intense conflicts that are already happening within both parties, the population’s anger and fear are feeding the tension that could escalate to riots, revolts and even revolution. Emotions are taking control over the reason. The population has completely lost their trust in the professional political system and is ready for anybody and anything different. Trump the actor, feeling his audience better than anyone else, is capitalizing on that. Very likely the population would rather have a new actor-President over any traditional politician. That answers question (3).

Now for question (4). Trump is not a statesman but an opportunistic heartless egomaniac actor, who cares only about himself and couldn’t care less about the population needs. The actual man behind the masks is very weak and vulnerable. The attack being the best defense, his huge ego is overly receptive to aggression and will always counter-attack instantly. The ongoing Presidential bid is on its way to become the nastier campaign ever. So far, Trump has been able to deflect most attacks. His opponents from outside and inside his party will keep finding or fabricating any dirty scandal to provoke a fatal blow to his campaign. Will he survive these assaults? His adversaries will be subject to assaults too. Will they survive too? The campaign final weeks may look very differently than what we are anticipating today. A lot will happen between now and November. The campaign has become a very expensive reality show and the coming months will bring a lot of surprises.

Trump has the outside stamina and endurance to win, but he lacks the inner authenticity of a caring king, which is his Achilles heel. He is running the Presidential race all by himself and for himself. His court and close fans will be insufficient to support his heartless egomaniac personality during the vicious fights to come. Bottom line, we are confirming what we already wrote last January when there were 17 candidates for the Republican nomination. Donald Trump will become the Republican nominee but not the next US President !!

 

 

Astro Tarology & Kabbalah

Kabbalah, astrology, tarot and the “Tree of Life”

The following image is a very detailed representation of the classic Kabbalah “Tree Of Life”. Besides showing the 11 sephirot (celestial bodies), it also includes their 22 links in correlation with the 22 tarot major arcana (Thoth Tarot), the 22 Hebrew alphabet letters and 22 astrological symbols.

Astro Tarology and the “Flower Of Life”

1563x2023-awareness

While both representations include similar 11 celestial bodies and their 22 tarot links, there are seven major differences between the modern Astro Tarology “Flower Of Life” and the classic Kabbalah “Tree Of Life”.

(1) Elimination of direct links between horizontal opposites. There are three occurrences in the “Tree Of Life” where a sephira on the left (pillar of severity) is opposed horizontally to a sephira on the right (pillar of mercy). Those sephiroth are linked either directly or via a middle sephira (pillar of balance). It is our belief that the direct link is unnecessary. Carl Jung explains that we need to hold opposites on our path to individuation. This implies to renounce choosing one of the two opposites. This frame of mind will then allow for a third way to appear. As we hold the opposites (left and right sephira), a third way in embryo (middle sephira) will instantly emerge. Let’s illustrate the point. At the same time, we can’t have a sunny side of the mountain without also a shady side. While both sides exist, a mountaineer can only see one side and never the other at the same time. Thus the direct link between sunny and shady is not possible. The only way to see both (left and right sephira) at the same time is from an airplane (middle sephira) above the mountain. The elimination of those three direct links makes the “Flower Of Life” cleaner and more practical.

(2) Both paths down to incarnation have different sequences. Both down paths to incarnation follow the same thunderbolt path. However, as a result of (1) above, their celestial bodies sequences are different.

1200x1200-tree-flower-of-ife-down

(3) The up path for spiritualization proceeds via the tarot. The “Tree Of Life” down path for incarnation (from the cosmos to humans)  and up path for spiritualization (return of human spirit to the cosmos) are the same in reverse sequence. In the “Flower Of Life” round-trip, the paths are different. While the path down from the Cosmos to Earth proceeds via the 11 celestial bodies as in (2) above right, the path up from Earth proceeds via the 22 tarot arcana grid. We are coming down with a fast escalator to our birth (astrology) and climbing up to our spirit day-by-day by the stairs (tarology) !!!

(4) Tarot arcana sequence progresses from the earth to the sky. Unlike the “Tree Of Life” showing the tarot arcana sequence from the sky to the earth, the “Flower Of Life”mandala shows them from earth to sky. This makes more sense as once we are incarnated, we start our journey from planet earth.

(5) Representation of the four life worlds. While the four life words (material, emotional, creative and intellectual) appear in piling layers in the “Tree Of Life”, they are in a circular sequence (green, blue, red and yellow) in the “Flower Of Life” just like the pansy four petals.

(6) The links between circles have different astrological correlations. Most traditions consider that the links between circles and their associated tarot arcana are related to planets and zodiacal signs. In the modern “Flower Of Life” the links between the circles act like planetary aspects between pairs of celestial bodies.

(7) Analytical differences between the “Tree Of Life” and the “Flower Of Life”. As we progress in the arcana study, the “Flower Of Life” will show new interesting celestial bodies and tarot arcana combinations such as vertical pillars, horizontal levels, diagonal directions, clusters, lemniscate paths (infinite shape), arcana pair of opposites, etc…

Astro Tarology & Planets

480x480-carl-jungAstrology is assured of recognition from psychology, without further restrictions, because astrology represents the summation of all the psychological knowledge of antiquity.
– Carl Jung

We are born with a body and a personality

Our birth photo shows our body. It is the first image of our physical life movie. Our natal chart shows our personality. It is the first page of our psychological life book. It all begins with our first breath. When does life start? Reincarnation believers think that our life already existed in another incarnated form before our conception. Traditional Christians believed that life starts at birth and modern “pro-life” Christians believe it starts at conception. Some like to make fun of the issue by stating that life really starts when kids are graduating in college!! Each of us has an opinion about the beginning of life. We believe that before our parents ever knew of each other, there was a spiritual energy that made them meet to be incarnated. Whether that energy was the re-incarnation of a past life or not is left to anyone’s opinion.

When we are born we inherit a body and physical DNA

On one hand we receive a body to which witch is attached a physical DNA and upon which we have zero conscious control. While our DNA will remain the same over our life, our body appearance will change. Pictures of our appearance made for each moment of our entire life are not random. A photo made at our birth is our physical life movie’s first image.

And we also inherit a personality and a psychological DNA

440x661-baby-psychological-dna

On another hand, we believe that with our birth we are also receiving a personality to which is attached a psychological DNA and upon which we also have zero conscious control. Like our body, our personality will be transformed over our life but our psychological DNA will not. We are discarding for now future potential physical and psychological DNA manipulations. Our personality narrative at birth is the first page of our psychological life book. As above so below. This is what the planets are all about.
