Donald Trump’s future, astrologers say, is written in the stars, and they predict Monday’s total solar eclipse will have serious consequences for the 45th president and the country.
The movement of stars and planets have an impact on people, according to astrologers. And that has some worried.
“I am genuinely concerned about the future of our country and beyond with all of that is happening in Trump’s astrological chart. He and our nation are at a tipping point with this eclipse,” said Rebecca Gordon, a New York-based astrologer and author who writes for Harper’s Bazaar .
Trump was born on June 14, 1946, during a lunar eclipse. Though his sun sign is in the astrological sign of Gemini, he has Leo rising at 29 degrees on the star Regulus, and Mars is in fiery Leo, said Gordon.
Regulus (the royal star) on his rising and Mars poses a strict royal code of conduct, that if not adhered, can produce ruinous set-backs, she said.
His chart, Gordon said, is filled with “fire and fury” that is essentially being triggered by the degree of this eclipse – the same words he used to describe how America would respond to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s escalating threats of nuclear attack.
The eclipse presents a steep challenge for Trump to change course.
Eclipses also tend to usher in sweeping change, especially those like the one we’ll see Monday at 29 degrees of Leo, which aligns precisely with the star Regulus on Trump’s ascendant as well as his Mars.
“This is certainly the most crucial time in his life as this eclipse will peel back the curtains and reveal hidden truths as we have seen already in the months leading up to this eclipse,” Gordon said.

“For Trump,” Gordon said, “this eclipse falls on his Mars, the planet which rules expressions of anger and power. Hence, we see the demeanor he has when speaking about North Korea, and overall sense of animosity and rage. Trump and Kim happen to have their planet Mars in direct opposition to each other, therefore, the eclipse falls on Trump’s Mars and opposes Kim’s Mars, and so conflicts can escalate fast in this dangerous duo (as we see they have already.
Shelley Ackerman, a New York-based astrologer, says this eclipse cycle harkens back to the total solar eclipse of February 1979. Shortly before, the Ayatollah Khomeini seized power in Iran. A few weeks later, the Three Mile Island nuclear disaster occurred in Pennsylvania.
“Eclipses have historically coincided with the birth and death of monarchs, the beginnings and ends of particular eras, and of course, it hits Donald Trump’s chart in a big way. And we’re seeing that now. Look at him.
You know, he’s under fire.”

And it’s been 99 years since a total solar eclipse’s path of totality has spanned the entire continental United States as this one will.
“This is the first one since 1918 that has crossed the country in this way,” she said. “If you think about what was going on at this time in 1918, the Spanish Flu was raging, Word War I was at its height.
It wasn’t all bad, though.
“That was when the standardization of time became the norm,” Ackerman said.
“The whole time thing was a very big event. The time zones were put together.”
She pointed to last weekend’s civil unrest in Charlottesville, Va., and said that’s evidence of the power of the coming eclipse already at work.
“We’re seeing the eclipse already,” she said. “Look at this, our country is torn apart.
The ‘alt-right’ saying, ‘Oh the left is OK with people of color outnumbering the rest of us,’ ” she said, referencing the far-right group whose ideology supports racism, populism and white nationalism.
Astrologer Samuel F. Reynolds of New York also sees civil unrest related to race and power playing heavily into this eclipse.
Monday marks the 186th anniversary of the nation’s largest and longest slave rebellion. On Aug. 21, 1831 day, Nathaniel (Nat) Turner led the insurrection in Southampton County, Va. About 50 white people were killed.
Retaliation for the uprising was fierce and long-lasting. Turner was hanged, as were many of the other slaves who rebelled, and a wave of harsh new laws were enacted that prohibited slaves from being taught to read and write. It effectively killed a budding Virginian abolitionist movement, too.
The rebellion came just two weeks after an Aug. 7 total solar eclipse and two days before an Aug. 23 lunar eclipse.
“His revolt forever changed the dynamics of what was happening with enslavement.
It led to more controls, and slave patrols to capture runaways,” he said.
As for Trump, Reynolds said, “I think he’s going to experience a lot more heat, literally, I am not one of the astrologers who believes this all bodes ill for him. But it may bode ill for us.”
Kristy Robinett, a Michigan-based psychic/medium who uses energy readings to inform her astrological predictions, said she’s not convinced war is looming.
“Astrological energy seems to suggest more conflict and more violence, and that things will be shaken up” she said. “But are we going to war? I don’t think so. I think we’re going to see more civil unrest, though.
Because Mercury is in retrograde during this eclipse, Robinett said some of the biggest effects of this astrological event might be more muted.
“If it wasn’t in retrograde, I’d be a little more worried, honestly,” she said. “I think this retrograde kind of takes the edge off the eclipse, and softens it a bit.”
