The horoscope of the United States’ thirty-fifth president is unique.  With all the planets above the horizon, except Uranus in Aquarius (which is a singleton retrograde planet) in his fourth house of family of origins, and family of creation his ultimate leadership in his family, “The Winner”. The Kennedy family remains the most politically influential family in the US, but JFK’s Uranus shows him to be the focus and living symbol of his eccentric, innovative, exclusive, paradoxical, and tragic pioneering family.  Uranus in its own sign is in a square to the Taurus planets in his eighth house, and with that came both opportunity and danger - Wu Chi in the Chinese symbol.  The family created a paradox in his nature, in that he was both an iconoclast AND a conservative.  The fact that he was the first President to be a non-Mason and Catholic was revolutionary, but some of his politics were old school.

Though the radicalization of consciousness was most immediately apparent in North American universities and youth culture,through their music, style and consciousness, within two years following the conjunction this historical phenomenon became global. The active participants in that cultural revolution of the mid nineteen-sixties, were the post-war babies, now called the Baby Boomers, the majority of whom were born immediate after the Second World War and had the Saturn Pluto conjunction - many with Mars therein - in their horoscopes.

Donald Trump: Peter Pan in Midlife

Donald Trump AstrologyEvery fourteen years, Donald Trump considers settling down. In 1987 he made a pass at the Oval Office and by Election Day 2001, he will have flirted with it again.
