Is This the Real Time of Donald Trump’s Birth?
I decided to start this post with a joke image, because the subject of it is the biggest joke of all. Remember the hubbub about Barack Obama’s fake birth certificate? Who pointed the finger? Donald Trump! That means three fingers were pointing back at himself. After Trump won the 2016 presidential election, astrologers wondered how they’d got it wrong. And then someone wrote this critique. I’d never read it before, because I hadn’t asked the right research question on Google. Yesterday, my astrologer friend, Steve, asked me to produce a revised birth chart using 9:17 am instead of the usual 10:54 am. I did as he asked but then immediately questioned if Trump could really have Pluto on the Ascendant. After doing my research this morning, I realized that someone is distorting the truth the other way, which is just as dishonest. I have now decided to stay with the middle of the road time of 9:51 am.
This one feels more correct to me. Both Pluto and Mars are widely conjunct his Leo Ascendant, but the extra proof, for me, is the inconjunct between Neptune and the Midheaven.

With this aspect you may have to build up your self-confidence considerably while you are young and learn that you are as worthy as anyone else. Even though these are your learning years, when you must develop a great deal of discipline, you still deserve as much consideration as anyone else. Your natural tendency is to yield to authority, so that those people who are most influential in your life, including your parents, should be careful about how they exercise their authority over you. If they try to control you too much, or if they make you feel that you just aren’t able to manage your own affairs, it will be difficult to correct the effects of this negative influence later in life.
You are very impressionable, in that you pick up the energies around you very quickly. Therefore it is very important that you be surrounded by wholesome influences in your early years, because negative influences will weaken your self-esteem and make it much more difficult to accomplish anything when you are older. On the other hand, your impressionableness may give rise to some psychic ability, or at least a very sharp intuition when you are older.
While you are young, you won’t have a clear idea of what you want to do in life. In fact you may never orient your life around a single idea or purpose. But don’t worry. Your purpose in life may not be one that is readily defined in terms of a career or profession. More important may be your style of living or your experience of life. Simply learn to always be aware and to learn whatever there is to be learned. With your sensitivity and intuition you can understand much more than other people, especially those who have wrapped their lives around their career or profession.
