He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
You may be surprised to see this quote from Isaiah 53:3a. I know I was when I began to hear it every time I woke up in the night. But you need to be able to read ‘between the lines’ to understand why this sentence is appropriate.
A man of Soros…
Honestly, you cannot make this stuff up.
Yesterday, when I was posting the astrological chart for the founding of Rome, I had the urge to look what significance, if any, that the planet Mars had. (My conscious thinking was that Mars was purported to be the twins’ father.) As I was typing out the words, I began to recognize Donald Trump in what was being written. At the back of my mind, I knew there was a connection, but it had slipped from my awareness.
Trump’s Mars is conjunct to his Ascendant!
Here is what I wrote ‘way back when’ I did his birth chart:
Mars in Leo
You have a great deal of pride, and you enjoy doing things on your own initiative. An appeal to your sense of fairness brings out the best in you, and you will do anything to maintain these qualities. If you know that someone is relying on you, you work very hard to live up to that person’s expectations. On the other hand, you are sometimes quite touchy about your sense of dignity. If someone makes fun of you or says something sarcastic, you get very angry and feel that you have to prove your worth to them. At times you may act arrogant and domineering towards others. You can’t always be first, but you have such a need to be a leader that it may be difficult for you to accept anyone else in this role.
Mars in the Twelfth House
You may often be afraid to assert yourself because you feel defeated, and you are sure that any effort is futile. It is quite likely that you will express this by feeling tired all the time. Your attitude may have resulted from being with people who haven’t encouraged you very much, especially when you were very young. You must build up your self-confidence and disregard anyone who makes you feel bad about yourself. You tend to work in secret and to act behind people’s backs, which you should try to avoid. Your lack of self-confidence makes you so afraid of direct action that you do everything indirectly. Even as an adult, you may prefer to be someone who works behind the scenes.
Mars Conjunct Ascendant
You are strong-willed, and people quickly realize that you are not someone to trifle with. You have all the classic qualities of Mars — self-reliance, courage and daring, personal aggressiveness and independence. You need to have complete control over your own life, but there is a danger that you will be too quarrelsome and domineering.
You like to be the center of attention, to appear strong, confident and dominant, even if something is bothering you. Your pride is so important that even when your feelings are hurt badly, you may act as if nothing is wrong.
You like to be the leader, and you can be a good one as long as you remember that leadership is a responsibility as well as power and privilege. If you feel that people are dealing with you fairly, you conduct yourself with dignity and honor. Other people may do cheap or dishonest things, but ordinarily you will not go along.
I know this will be a bit of a stretch for some, but again, it seems spirit led. Hollywood has become a hotbed of nasty behaviour over the years. (#timesup, #metoo) And the Out of Shadows documentary video, mentioned in yesterday’s post about it being Biblical, reminded me of a book I read years ago, called Hollywood Babylon. Those were the days that you sold your soul to the studios to be a megastar. Oh, just like now…
Sodom and Gomorrah. When men could be men with whomever they pleased. Who wants to pass the pillar of salt? (A bit Martian, that.)
Trump has had a long connection with Hollywood and the TV industry. Have you ever consciously thought about that? Check out his IMDb account. Now, it’s becoming clear…
Somebody, somewhere has the goods on him.
If you have nothing to hide, why would you need to keep your tax returns from public scrutiny? What is there that you don’t want anyone to see? (Do you see how theorists come up with their ideas?) Have you been financed by someone that would compromise your apparent independence? Have you been blackmailed? What’s up with that?
The Grand Old Party
This is the one thing that makes me think Donald Trump is a Democratic ‘plant’. He has taken the Republicans in, hook, line and sinker. He wants to make it into his own party.
I cannot remember a time when a President has fought with his ‘nominal’ backers as Trump has done for the past three and a quarter years. He doesn’t take advice easily, for one thing. And he certainly doesn’t toe the party line. Experts on all sides are exasperated by his constant tweeting. It’s impossible to keep on ‘message’ when the top guy says what he likes, what he doesn’t like, and who he hates. Only Kellyanne Conway seems immune, for some reason. I wonder why… Could she be his ‘handler’?
Connecting the Dots
We’ve come a long way from the title of this Op-Ed. (Yes, and please remember that these thoughts are musings, for your amusement.)
So, who is pulling the strings?
