Donald Trump was just named the presumptive Republican nominee. Yet there are still enormous obstacles ahead for him to be even be accepted by that party, let alone be elected President.
His improbable rise has been shown by the transit of Jupiter through his first house, since July 2015, when he burst on the Political scene.
His Chart is a fascinating case study in the specifics of astrology, in this case the transit of Jupiter through his first house — and its influence on his persona and Natal Mars in the first house.
For his rise to be possible there needed to be many things in place, they include:
~ A weak field / Competitors unwilling to hold him accountable
~ A complicit media fawning over him / entertained by him
~ The underestimation of his chances by party elders until it was too late
~ Several mid-level / weak candidates splitting the vote once the Primaries began.
All of these things have come together for him since the summer of 2015 when Jupiter entered his first house and went over his natal Mars, the Yoga Karaka in his first house and his SubDasa planet.
Unlike the Past,. in Trump’s Favor
In elections past, a majority candidate emerged to take down a fringe candidate, early in the process, one who earned a similar percentage as Trump. For example, Mitt Romney in 2012 quickly began to earn 50% or more in 2012, with New Gingrich Ron Paul and Rick Santorum eating up about 45% of the rest of the vote. This is normal.
Thus, even though Trump has barely gotten 40% of the vote, he has gotten close to 70% of the Delegates. This UNpopularity (within his own party) will be death of him as a General election candidate, and is showing up now as Speaker Ryan and other prominent Republican party members are still against Trump – former presidents and candidates will not endorse him or even show up to the Republican convention.
Foolhardiness and Overconfidence of Jupiter
One thing to understand about Jupiter, is he also can mask the truth for while, as we ride high, overlooking the underlying factors, as i see the media now doing with Trump – speaking as if he is “so popular” because he is “winning”,.. all the while overlooking these obvious numbers and fortunate circumstances.
His luck is about to change though, as Jupiter will move forward in early May and Trump will be challenged to be a “uniter” and rally this very divided party behind him. This will be no small feat, as Trump has created most of the divisions himself, and he is also riding high – not thinking HE should unify, but rather they should reach out to HIM, the mighty one.
In the middle of August Jupiter will move into his second house and the circumstances will change. He will have a very tough battle on his hands where he will need to be accountable for his words and be facing battles from all directions, including within the Republican party itself.
