Trump Chaos, Time Magazine Cover

The Chaos President

Jeb Bush 12/15/15

“So Donald, you know, is great at the one-liners, but he’s a chaos candidate, and he’d be a chaos president.”

Joe Scarborough, former GOP Representative and conservative MSNBC host 3/13/16

“As has been the case throughout the entire 2016 cycle, Trump thrives on the political chaos that he helps create. If it is true that opportunity and chaos are the same word in Mandarin, Trump should stamp that word on a poster and sell it at his next scheduled event. For the Manhattan billionaire, manufactured chaos is just as profitable for his brand as Paris Hilton’s sex tape was for hers.”

Rep Barbara Lee (D, CA) 1/12/17

“We need look no further than the team he is assembling to find signals that the era of Trump will be one of chaos and devastation for our communities.”

Carl Bernstein, WaPo reporter 1/30/17

“The president and his presidency is in chaos.”

Madeleine Albright, former Secretary of State 1/31/17

“In developing and issuing this order, the Trump White House ignored the most basic processes of governing. The result was chaos, and the implications for our country are grave.”

James Peterson, Lehigh University professor & MSNBC contributor 2/5/17

“There is a sort of chaotic distraction process that the administration engages in.”

Katty Kay, BBC Washington Bureau Chief 2/10/17

“There is something about this White House that deliberately wants to foster chaos.”

Above is a VERY small sampling of recent quotations linking Donald Trump to the word “chaos”, beginning with rival candidate for the GOP presidential nomination Jeb Bush, who first christened Trump “the chaos candidate” in December 2015, in the wake of Trump’s call for a Muslim ban after the terrorist attack in San Bernardino.

He had no idea how accurate he was! For there is a minor planetary body in our solar system named Chaos, and it makes a strong impact in Donald Trump’s birth chart.

Chaos is a TNO, or Trans-Neptunian Object, from the Kuiper Belt region of the solar system, out near Pluto. Named for an ancient Greek god and representing anarchy, disorder, confusion, and, well, chaos, TNO Chaos is a force for disruption and turmoil, though it also has a softer, more creative side, as the void from which all else emerges. That potential is not much on display in Trump’s life, with his serial bankruptcies and two failed marriages, nor in his presidency thus far, with his constant Twitter wars, controversial actions, and virtually daily public protest demonstrations.

No, it’s the anarchic side of Chaos which possesses The Donald, as can be seen both by its natal degree and its current transit position. In his birth chart (born 14 June 1946), Trump sports TNO Chaos at 24 Pisces, in close square to his natal Sun at 22 Gemini, which itself conjoins disruptive Uranus at 17 Gemini. This placement makes Trump a natural agent of Chaos, feeding off the turmoil, commotion, havoc and mayhem he leaves in his wake. Uranus delights in upsetting others, often just for the sake of it, reveling in the shock value it creates, ready to flout convention, jettison propriety and shatter social norms of politeness and decorum, while it sits back and gleefully observes the pandemonium it has set in motion.

Making matters worse is TNO Chaos’s current transit position, which is reinforcing Trump’s natural tendency to blow things up. Chaos is a slow-mover, taking almost 310 years to circle the sun, so it scours each section of the zodiac thoroughly as it passes, infusing it with its particular brand of confusion and tumult. Since the spring of 2015, before he announced his intention of running for president, Trump’s Sun has been conjoined by transit Chaos, bringing the full force of that natal potential for mayhem and anarchy into the fore.

Its first exact conjunction with Trump’s Sun began in early August 2016, right after he had accepted the GOP presidential nomination at his Party’s convention, and as the campaign appeared to be imploding, with Trump fighting with a Gold Star family, among other chaotic actions. Chaos came to its retrograde station exact on his Sun in late September, just before the revelations of his crude, brutish sexual assault history, as confirmed by himself in the “Access Hollywood” video where he bragged of his loutish behaviors. And Chaos remained at the Sun’s degree right through the election, and will be within orb through May of 2021, encompassing the entire first term and the re-election campaign.

Additional periods of peak activation, with the transit exact, will occur in June and July 2017, December 2017 through January 2018, and April to May 2018. What further chaos can we expect from these periods? Only time will tell. Stay tuned…
