The Rectification of a Nativite Study – Donald Trump

As an apprentice astrologer, I desire easy, clear, definite instructions, finally ,I find that Deborah Houlding ‘s two articles are helpful for calculating oblique ascensions (note1), and Benjamin Dykes’s astrology lecture named Primary Directions Without Tears is good for calculating three basic types of primary directions(note 2), the last Henry Coley’s step by step tutorial is useful for rectifying the birth time of nativities (note3).

Step 1: To have a estimated time.

Donald Trump was born on 14 June 1946 at 10:54 AM, Jamaica, New York, 40n41, 73w48 EDT h4w . Rodden Rating AA (note4)

Step 2: To set up a speculum.

(1) A table includes thirty two horizontal columns and thirteen vertical columns.

In the top of horizontal column  ,set the twelves signs in order, and in the first left hand vertical column, place the degrees of the signs beginning with 0,1,2,3…to 30.

(2) Place the planets, the north node , and the south node, as well as the Part of Fortune in their respective columns, that is right against the degrees of their places in the first column,and just under the signs they are in,noted at top.

(3) Antiscions and contra-antiscions table of the planets, also the table of essential dignities and debilities, and Fixed Stars.

(4) Dexter and sinister aspects.

(5) Signs and degrees of Ascendent and Mid-heaven.

Step 3: To collect accidents.

In Donald Trump’s natal chart, his Moon is aspecting to three planets, there are the Sun by opposition ,Mercury by contra-antiscions, and Jupiter by sextile.

Event1 : His first marriage happened on 7th April 1977 with Ivana Zelníčková and his age was 30 years 9months 24days old. We rounded it to 31 years .

Event2: His second marriage happened on 20 December 1993 with Marla Maples , and his age was 47 years 6 months 6days . We rounded it to 47 years.

Event3: His third marriage happened on 22nd January 2005 with Melania Knauss, and his age was 58 years 7 months 8 days. We rounded it to 59 years.

Step 4: To verify the Mid-heaven.

The current Mid-heaven is in Taurus  24 degrees 22 minutes

According to event1, we get Mid-heaven in Gemini  24 degrees 33 minutes.

The difference between natal Sun is backward 1 degree and 38 minutes.

According to event2, we get Mid-heaven in  Cancer 09 degrees 18 minutes.

The difference between natal Mercury is  backward 27 minutes.

According to event3, we get Mid-heaven in Cancer 20 degrees 29 minutes.

The difference between natal Jupiter is backward 3 degrees and 2 minutes.

The average value is 1 degrees 42 minutes. To subtract this value from Taurus 24 degrees 22 minutes, we get 22 degrees 40 minutes.

Setp 5: Result.

There are  the rectified Mid-heaven in Taurus 22 degrees 40 minutes and the rectified ascendent in Leo 28 degrees 35 minutes.

The relative time is 10:47 AM.

So ,Donald Trump remains to have a Leo ascendent if my calculation is right.

Have fun.

Saturn – Jupiter Conjunction in 2020

Dr.Benjamin Dykes in his work, Revolutions & history , Astrology of the World II , illustrates Mean Conjunction of Saturn – Jupiter ,which is different from their true degree conjunction, bases on the average length of each planet’s cycle in the Zodiac , that is the 12-year cycle of Jupiter and 29.4-year of Saturn return.

I think it is reasonable, since it keeps triplicity shift continuously and constantly. That also accepted by Guido Bonatti and William Lilly in their books.

In November 4, 2000, Saturn – Jupiter conjunction shifted to airy triplicity and the first sign was Gemini.

The Sacred Art

About five years ago, in our first talking,  my astrology guru Sue Ward gave me a word ,”divine” . She asked me if understood what it meant, I said No.

After years continued study on it, eventually , I became aware of its meaning .

Many modern astrologers leave it behind, that means no longer trust God,  devote themselves to him, and being humility.

God uses his way to response us.

Please , listen to the voice from more than 300 years before,

My Friend, whoever you are, that with so much ease shall receive the benefit of my hard Studies,

and does intend to proceed in this heavenly knowledge of the Stars, wherein the great and admirable works of the invisible and alglorious God are so manifestly apparent.

In the first place, consider and admire your Creator, and be thankful unto him,

be you humble,

and let no natural knowledge, how profound and transcendent soever it be, elate your minde to neglect that divine Providence,

by whose all-seeing order and appointment, all things heavenly and earthly, have their constant motion;

but the more your knowledge is enlarged, the more do you magnifie the power and wisdom of Almighty God, and strive to preserve your self in his favour; being confident, the more holy you are; and more neer to God, the purer Judgment you shall give.

Beware of pride and self-conceit,

and remember how that long ago, no irrationall Creature dared offend Man, the Microcosm; but did faithfully serve and obey him, so long as he was master of his own Reason and Passions, or until he subjected his Will to the unreasonable part.

But alas! When iniquity abounded, and man gave the reins to his own affection, and deferred reason, then every Beast, Creature and outward harmful thing, became rebellious and unserviceable to his command.

Stand fast, oh man! to your God, and assured principles, then consider your own nobleness, how all things created, both present and to come, were for your sake created; no for your sake God became Man: you are that Creature, who being conversant with Christ, lives and reigns above the heavens, and sits above all power and authority.

How many pre-eminences, advantages has God bestowed on you? you range above the heavens by contemplation, conceive the motion and magnitude of the stars; you talk with Angels, yes with God himself;

you have all creatures under your dominion, and keep the Devils in subjection: Do not then for shame deface your nature, or make yourself unworthy of such gifts, or deprive yourself of that great power, glory and blessedness God has allotted you, by casting from you his fear, for possession of a few imperfect pleasures.

Having considered your God, and what you yourself are, during your being Gods servant;

Sun and Mercury in “Libra” Sign now

Now, the Sun and Mercury is transiting during the Zuben Elgenubi (South Scale) and Zuben Elschemali( North Scale).

If you have planets or significant points in 13  to 21 Scorpio  in your natal chart , do you feel kamia attraction and keen on justice?

This constellation has a Libra sharp, which is Astraea used to weight the deeds of men , representing the justice and balance. It also represents two claws of Scorpio.

Ptolemy said, ” Those stars at the points of the claws of Scorpio operate like Jupiter and Mercury; those in the middle of the claws, like Saturn, and in some degree like Mars.

By the Kabalists, Libra is associated with the Hebrew letter Heth and the 8th Tarot Trump” Justice.”

According to Rosenberg, born under this constellation , who will suffer a strong karmic attraction. “It is important that apparent injustices suffered are understood to be karmic lessons ,rather than excuses for vengeance.” ( Rosenberg).

After suffering, there is possible salvation ,after which they may become powerful transformers, anxious to help and save others.(Rosenberg).

Born under the constellation Libra should be fully aware of balance , but also understand that suffering a loss is a blessing.

Born under the constellation Libra should be fully aware that you always have the choice and free will, when you undergo misfortune , treachery, deceit,  you can choose to revenge, or forgive and find a piece of peace.
