Donald Trump The Egomaniac In Chief
Since starting his Presidential bid almost a year ago, Donald Trump has been on the top of the news every single day. All along he became the key figure to be reckoned with in the US electoral race. So far, we already wrote 3 articles about Trump narcissistic personality and political revolution. This post is taking a more detailed astro-tarologic approach about his life karma issue and derive what it means for his political future.
Unlike any egomaniac who believes that the earth was only created for them, Trump believes that the entire world revolves around him. He became the center of his personal universe just like the Sun is the solar system center. The karma analysis that follows will show how the Sun is playing a key role is his personality and destiny. Just like his flamboyant yellowed hair and tanned orange face.

Donald Trump Karma Issue
Step 1 – Trump Natal Chart
Trump Ascendant = Leo (the green curly glyph to the left)
Trump Ruler of Ascendant = Sun (the blue circle with a central dot)
Trump Ruler of Ascendant House = 10 (the Sun segment ring number)
Trump Ruler of Ascendant Sign = Gemini (the yellow Sun sign glyph)
These are all the necessary information needed from Trump natal chart.
Step 2 – Trump Tarot Cards
- Trump Ascendant = Leo -> Card = “The Ego” = The king on his throne.
- Trump Ascendant Ruler = The Sun -> Card = also “The Ego” (not showing but replaced by the two Sun cards in terrain and needs on top left).
- Trump Ascendant Ruler Terrain = 10 -> Card = “The Burden” = A man climbing a long road in the mountain and carrying a rock on his back.
- Trump Ascendant Ruler Needs = Gemini -> Card = “The Actor” = A man walking on a stage in front of an audience.
Step 3 – Interpretation for Trump life karma.
A. WHAT – Trump Ascendant = Leo sign = “The Ego” card
Let’s imagine that at the moment of his birth, baby Donald would have been standing in his cradle looking in the Eastern direction as far away as the celestial sphere. His sharp vision would have pierced the zodiac belt in the sign of Leo. As the lion is the animal king by excellence, so is the Leo sign royal symbol.
In our inner movie theater, the Ascendant represents the screenplay high concept issue. The Ascendant Ruler is the story leading character. The Ascendant symbolizes the native life problem and the Ascendant Ruler the life problem manager.
The Ascendant represents the way we appear to others and the Leo Ascendant card shows a king on his throne. So baby Donald was born with the life issue to behave like a king during his entire life. Fighting to gain and keep the royal power has a price to pay, that of the heart sacrifice. Carl Jung once stated that the opposite of love is not hate but power.
The king’s power-love dilemma is the core issue of Trump’s life story. The constant search for power implies a self-centered megalomania personality with no room for love. Only when he will lose his power, willfully or not, will Trump be able to access his heart. Trump can either have power or love, but not both at the same time.
B. WHO – Trump Ascendant Ruler = Sun = “Ego” card
If it was not enough to have the Ascendant life issue requiring to behave like a king, Trump’s Ascendant Ruler –the leading character of his inner movie theater story– is the Sun itself. So, it is a royal character who is in charge of managing a royal dilemma. We can hear Trump father encouraging young Donald inner royal character to follow and expand the Trumps dynasty. This double inner royal presence (issue and manager) makes it almost impossible for Donald to abdicate voluntarily his power for love. Donald double ego karma makes him a super heartless egomaniac.
C. WHERE – Trump Ascendant Ruler Terrain = 10 = “The Burden” card
The card shows an old man who not only is climbing a long road in the mountains, but also carries a heavy burden on his back. This very demanding effort requires a powerful stamina and an enduring capacity. Those are vital responsible traits needed in Trump’s real estate developer activities. From concept to conclusion, there is a long road for any major real estate project. Not only does such a project require the developer stamina and endurance to address all endless day-by-day issues but also carry the investors on his back until the finish line. Quite a long and difficult marathon road. Real estate development is definitively not for everybody !!
In politics those qualities were all along underestimated by his “anti-Trump” adversaries expecting wrongly his fall. He eliminated one by one all other 16 Republican candidates and still shows relentless strength to reach his final Presidential objective.
Like the man on the card, Trump has an Atlas complex who feels responsible for everything and everyone in the world. Because of his Atlas complex, no task is too big for him. Carrying the world on his shoulder cannot be delegated and implies that Trump must only rely on himself and be the holder of universal certainties. His right or wrong opinions are the only one that matter for himself and anybody else. His Atlas complex combined with his megalomania is very oppressive for himself and even more so for others.
D. HOW – Trump Ascendant Ruler Needs = Gemini = “The Actor” card
The actor is the key card to understand how Trump functions. Combined with his megalomania, Trump the actor would only accept leading roles such as business and political top leader. Whether he is fully aware of it or not, Trump is always living his life on borrowed identities. Revealing the man behind the masks doesn’t seem to be a Trump option.
Paraphrasing the actor playing a doctor in a TV show, Trump could very well say “I am not a king but I play one on TV.” Trump the political actor raises the four following questions.
(1) Are the required acting qualities to play the role of a political candidate good enough to also play the role of a President?
(2) Would an actor playing the role of a President better than a President himself qualify him to be elected as President?
(3) Is the US ready for an actor playing the role of the actual President?
(4) Can Trump fake it all the way to the Presidency?
For questions (1) and (2), we believe that Trump the actor is capable to play both the candidate and the President roles and be a better actor than anyone else. Question (3) is more nuanced. We surely are living unusual times that are propitious for unusual circumstances. On today’s US political scene, the division between Democrats and Republicans is more and more replaced by the division between the population and the establishment, between the populist outsiders (Sanders and Trump) and the traditional insiders (Clinton and Romney). Similarly to the intense conflicts that are already happening within both parties, the population’s anger and fear are feeding the tension that could escalate to riots, revolts and even revolution. Emotions are taking control over the reason. The population has completely lost their trust in the professional political system and is ready for anybody and anything different. Trump the actor, feeling his audience better than anyone else, is capitalizing on that. Very likely the population would rather have a new actor-President over any traditional politician. That answers question (3).
Now for question (4). Trump is not a statesman but an opportunistic heartless egomaniac actor, who cares only about himself and couldn’t care less about the population needs. The actual man behind the masks is very weak and vulnerable. The attack being the best defense, his huge ego is overly receptive to aggression and will always counter-attack instantly. The ongoing Presidential bid is on its way to become the nastier campaign ever. So far, Trump has been able to deflect most attacks. His opponents from outside and inside his party will keep finding or fabricating any dirty scandal to provoke a fatal blow to his campaign. Will he survive these assaults? His adversaries will be subject to assaults too. Will they survive too? The campaign final weeks may look very differently than what we are anticipating today. A lot will happen between now and November. The campaign has become a very expensive reality show and the coming months will bring a lot of surprises.
Trump has the outside stamina and endurance to win, but he lacks the inner authenticity of a caring king, which is his Achilles heel. He is running the Presidential race all by himself and for himself. His court and close fans will be insufficient to support his heartless egomaniac personality during the vicious fights to come. Bottom line, we are confirming what we already wrote last January when there were 17 candidates for the Republican nomination. Donald Trump will become the Republican nominee but not the next US President !!
