Donald Trump: The Lion King
Donald Trump's horoscope started appearing off an on on the jyotish (Vedic
astrology) fraternity radar when he became a very strong contender for the
2016 Republican presidential nomination. He was then being written off by the
popular media and polling trends. But the jyotish community was not ready to
undermine his Rahu-Mars dasa. The election results were to be announced
before his Rahu-Mars dasa was ending around 15th Nov. 2016.
The strong raj-yoga (combination for power) caused by the
placement of Rahu-Mars in his horoscope was too loud and obvious to be
ignored. Victory in the elections seemed very likely. At least a humiliating
defeat, as predicted by popular polls, was not in the stars.
Now that he is the president of USA and the most powerful person on
planet earth, let us take a look at him-astrologically.

The rising sign (ascendant) in a horoscope is predominantly responsible
for defining and shaping personality traits. The rising sign is subject to further influences from
supplementary factors. Together, these factors then shape the mental,
philosophical, intellectual and mundane outlook on things small and
big. Most of the time these influences are contradictory in nature and thus tend to refrain
from making someone a zodiac stereotype. Thus, an Aries is never 100% Aries
and so on.
But once in a while these factors do join hands to enhance, punctuate and
sharpen the core
personality traits. Persons born under such planetary influences are
destined to stand apart in a positive or negative manner.
Trump is one such example.
His rising sign or the ascendant (lagna) is Leo. This sign is said to
be hot, dry, masculine, positive, bestial , barren and fixed. Leo is
symbolized by the lion- king of a jungle. Leo is ruled by Sun - king of the
Leo Traits: Regality, short tempered, arrogant in appearance and
character, self-pride, generous, straightforward, dominating, energetic,
Supplementary factors reinforcing his Leo traits:
Ascendant star Magha ruled by Ketu : Outspoken, assertive,
combative, forceful, audacious, sensual, impulsive, proud, short-tempered,
undertakes lofty plan, will be worthy and have many servants.
Mars on ascendant: Ambitious, aspiring, assertive, bold, rash, commands
Scorpio-Moon sign (janma rasi or the birth-sign) : Controlling, persistent,
determined, ambitious, intelligent, practical, vindictive, logical,
Birth star Jyestha: Quick in action, bold, blunt, never hesitate to
fight at least by words, resourceful, learned, indefatigable, practical,
exaggeration, great marital heroes, those that are endowed with noble
family, wealth and fame, will not have many friends, will be virtuous and
Leo as 5th sign of Zodiac: Magnetic and influential, inventive and
inspiring, fond of company and pleasurable pursuits, entertainment,
prefers to be always in limelight, popular.
Therefore his personality, style of functioning , social, political,
economic and other decisions would be largely impacted by the above mentioned
Tenth house of a horoscope is called the Karma Bhava. This house is
singularly responsible for karma one is destined to render in his/her
lifetime. Karmic success and failure of great magnitude depends on this
house. In the horoscope of Trump, his rising sign ruler ie Sun occupies the
10th house of Karma. Sun is in rapt conjunction with Rahu (North
Node). The Sun+Rahu combination in 10th is forming a brilliant raj-yoga.
Sun in 10th is excellent - but eclipsed by shadowy Rahu is capable of
casting ominous and dark shadows.
In Vedic astrology the potential of good and bad yogas in a horoscope are manifested on
the timeline of mahadasa.
He took the oath and entered White House moment his Jupiter dasa (2017-2033)
started. Jupiter by being in Chitra star ruled by Mars,and being in
Rahu sub connects his ascendant and 10th house forming a first rate
raj-yoga. Most of planets, except Saturn, in his chart carry a
lot of fireworks. Therefore I do not foresee any dramatic shift in his style
of functioning. Jupiter also aspects his 10th house making him fortunate and
lucky. But his Jupter in Chitra makes it a strong badhaka (one that causes
impediments) planet as well.
But of all, it is the Saturn in his horoscope that is
worst placed. It indicates impediments, litigations, obstructions,
secret and hidden enemies, inimical activities, humiliation, litigation and
health issues. Saturn sub periods or sub sub periods need to be noted.
Therefore I am going to watch the following periods keenly:
21-Feb-2017 to 25-June-2017 Jupiter dasa-Jupiter bhukti-Saturn antara.
29-Dec-2018 to 24-May-2019
Jupiter dasa-Saturn bhukti-Saturn antara
