The media - at least MSNBC - has been going on and on about President Trump changing directions on a number of fronts. Most of the changes are in regard to foreign policy issues. He has changed his views and the way he behaves with regard to China, Syria, NATO, North Korea, and Russia (debateable). What astrological aspects or transits would explain this?
The Sun (Trump’s ruling planet - rules his Ascendant’s sign) is conjunct transiting Uranus on April 13, 2017 (exact at 10:30 PM PST). The Sun/Uranus combo is transiting his ninth house of foreign affairs. Uranus is the planet of change and the unexpected. The duo (Sun/Uranus) is squaring Trump’s natal Saturn and Venus in his eleventh house. Trump is changing his long-term goals, and his relationships are changing as well (Steve Bannon). It’s unclear as to what the the ramifications to the nation are of these changes, however they are likely serious and many.
Transiting Mars (in Taurus) is conjunct Trump’s MC (the top of his chart - his profession and public reputation). The United States dropped a MOAB bomb in Afghanistan on April 13 in pursuit of ISIS for the first time in history. He has also ordered a navy fleet to head toward North Korea. Trump’s threats could be serious and real.
