Donald Trump’s Pluto=Sat/Mars midpoint


Donald Trump’s natal chart has a Pluto=Sat/Mars midpoint.

This midpoint is especially difficult, as his natal Pluto 10º Leo falls in his 12th house of “self-undoing”.

Ebertin describes this midpoint as, “Brutality, the rage or fury of destruction”. 

A modern interpretation of this midpoint is:

Demonstrating the will and intent to meet specific challenges; to completely master and overcome an arduous situation. Defiance; refusing to back down or give in under pressure. Build ups of stress and aggression which are prone to periodic and powerful release. The activation of survival instincts. An awareness of the destructive forces of ‘man and nature’. Harmful elements. Collective loss and anguish.”

Around mid September 2019, his solar arc Ascendant hits up this midpoint by square, at 10º Scorpio, which will trigger the above reaction.


The 90º dial above shows how his Solar Arc (SA) ascendant has moved to an exact square to his natal Pluto. Also note that solar arc Chiron is forming a semi-square to the SA Ascendant, as it appears “Across the Dial” on the chart.

Below is an image of the same Dial with the pointer placed from the outer wheel, SA chart to natal chart.

Here we can see Asc=Sat/Nept, which according to Ebertin represents “An emotionally depressing environment, oppressive family circumstances, emotional suffering caused by other persons, limitation of freedom”.

Ebertin does not give interpretations for Chiron in the midpoint structures, but we can ascertain from the planetary energies involved, that he will be involved in the suffering (Chiron) caused by his actions (Ascendant) of his 12th house Pluto (behind the scene transformative actions to control).

Asc=Moon/Pluto, is interpreted as “A violent reaction to environmental influences, the tendency to cause upsets in one’s environment through one’s conduct, many upsets”.


As we have already seen, Trump will have an extreme reaction to the Mueller report, and if Congress goes ahead with Impeachment, Trump’s reaction will be very strong indeed.

Secondary Progressions and Solar Arc Directions to Donald Trump’s natal chart from May – Dec 2018.


Many astrologers are talking about how Trump is entering into a very lucky period with his progressed (p) Venus meeting his natal (n) Jupiter Retrograde (R) at 17’27 deg Libra in his 2nd house.

This hit will be in effect before 1 May 2018 – and beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 14 June 2018 (yes his birthday) and denotes, other than love and marriage, becoming popular, film star mannerisms.

Taking a closer look at his chart, his natal Jupiter R, is actually midpoint his natal Sun and Pluto, (pursuit of happiness and fortune).

However, Trump’s n Pluto is mid-point his Saturn and Mars, denoting brutality, rage and fury of destruction.

So during this lucky p Venus, n Jupiter meet up, we also have p Venus midpoint n Sun and Sat/Mar midpoint and n Jupiter midpoint Sun and the Sat/Mars midpoint.

Trump's progressions 2018


The Saturn/Mars midpoint (harmful or destructive energy) will certainly place a dampener on any benefits gained from the lucky Venus/Jupiter conjunction.

As Jupiter has always been midpoint Sun/Pluto and consequently the Saturn/Mars midpoint in his chart, it highlights how his successes have often turned into bankruptcies.

Also note how his solar arc or directed (sa) ascendant is coming to square his natal Pluto. This hit comes into orb on 5 September 2018 – and goes beyond 1 Jan 2019. This hit by square will be the first in his lifetime when his person (ascendant) meets up with the restrictive saturn/mars (advancement difficult, obstacles caused by other people, illness, separation, mourning). He had a sextile by  sa ascendant to his natal Pluto and Sat/Mars midpoint in his early 40’s, but now at age 72 the square has formed


Brief comments on other secondary progressions and solar arc directions.


Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, Progressed Mars is Sextile Natal Pluto

Progressed Mars in Libra, 2nd house, making positive aspect to Natal Pluto in 12th house, which is always midpoint Sat/Mars. He will make a huge effort to cover up his past shady dealings.

Before 1 May 2018 – 11 June 2018, Directed Pluto is Trine Natal Uranus

Directed Pluto in Libra, 2nd house, making positive aspect to natal Uranus in 10th house. This is ending on 11th June, will his impact on the office of President and the changes he has made taper off now…

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 8 May 2018, Directed Moon is in Opposition to Natal Ascendant

His affairs with women and difficulties with women and his wife will generate more conflict, disagreement.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 14 June 2018, Progressed Venus is Conjunct Natal Jupiter

See comments above.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 23 June 2018, Directed Uranus is Conjunct Natal Mars

This one is huge, sudden revelations will continue to pour out regarding his hidden (12th house) dealings. He will continue to shock and create disruption and always be highly agitated. Uranus/Mars combinations are also indicative of car accidents and other accidents in general.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 27 June 2018, Directed Ascendant is Trine Natal Mercury

He will continue to use social media to get his message across…His sa ascendant is now as 8-9 deg Scorpio in his 3rd house of communication…His approach (ascendant) is do or die (Scorpio) or on the war path to achieve his nationalistic aspirations ( n Mercury in Cancer in 11th house). 

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 19 August 2018, Directed Mercury is Square Natal Uranus

He will continue to do his duty (sa Mercury in Virgo) in implementing/communicating  his shocking  (Uranus) ideas  to his base, but he might hit a snag, as the square denotes difficulties.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 6 October 2018, Directed Moon’s North Node is Conjunct Natal Ascendant

The formation of an important personal connection. He will probably meet up with Kim Jong-un. Note: 24th May 2018 – Meeting with Kim Jong-Un cancelled. As his natal Part of Fortune, opposes his ascendant 28 Aq, and his sa Moon also now at 0 deg Pisces opposes his sa North Node and natal Ascendant, this meeting was called off…

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 16 November 2018, Progressed Venus is Trine Natal Uranus

This one is very interesting as it ties in with the p Venus/n Jupiter R conjunction.

Natally his Uranus makes a Saturn/Pluto, Mars/Neptune midpoint aspect which makes fulfilling the promise of this trine difficult. However, his natal Jupiter/Uranus trine, has always got him out of trouble, as it is the “Thank the Lord” aspect.  With the lessening of the p Venus/ n Jupiter R conjunction due to the Saturn/Mars midpoint, combined with the sa Asc to Pluto which also has the Saturn/Mars midpoint aspect, we can only speculate how his “lucky aspects” will turn out. Perhaps this time, not as expected.

Before 1 May 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, strongest around 7 December 2018, Directed Jupiter is Trine Natal Mars

This is a lucky aspect, and his sa Jupiter falls in his 4th house of family, trining his Mars in 12th. If all goes belly up, he could negotiate a good deal for him and his family… In any case he will continue to benefit his family business..

5 September 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, Directed Ascendant is Square your Natal Pluto

See above

15 September 2018 – Beyond 1 Jan 2019, Directed Venus is Conjunct Natal R Neptune

He will continue to cover up his foreign/political business ties…His natal Neptune R in Libra makes many midpoints in his chart, one stands out, Neptune midpoint Sun/Jupiter, which is the signature of “the crook”.  At present we are witnessing how his past ties with the shady world are coming to the fore. More to come here, as the many midpoints his retrograde natal Neptune makes are too numerous to mention at this point. His natal Neptune R only makes 1 aspect in his natal chart, a separating square to Mercury. With sa Venus coming up to conjunct his natal Neptune – disillusionment will reign.


As mentioned before in my posts on Trump’s chart, his Pluto midpoint Saturn/Mars is the most difficult in the chart. Now at age 72 his ascendant will square this midpoint, and create some very challenging times for him, given his natal Pluto is in his 12th house of “self-undoing”, secretive dealings and in mundane astrology, hidden enemies. 

Given he has other “benign” aspects by secondary progression and solar arc, how will these counteract his other “malefic” aspects? To my mind the saying “count your losses and run” would now be the wisest course of action.
