How Will Trump Affect America?

Now for the second reading about Donald Trump and the effects of his presidency on America. He was inaugurated on Friday, January 20. At this writing, it appears that there may have been more protesters out and about in the area of the Inaugural Parade than actual attendees, but Trump vehemently protests the data. Here is the reading:

We begin with the eight of pentacles, crossed by the Wheel of Fortune, which is read reversed, here. The eight of pentacles is the card of the apprentice, so to speak, and it is a very apt card for a reading about Donald Trump, and his reality program was called "The Apprentice"! One of the reasons he had support from various segments of the American population was jobs and employment, and here we have a solid reference. Unfortunately, it is crossed by the Wheel of Fortune, reversed, and that shows that there is an unexpected element of either bad luck or bad timing connected to some of Trump's plans. Sometimes, this card falls reversed to remind us that we will reap as we have sown.

As a forerunner, we get the Hanged Man, reversed. When the Hanged Man falls upside right, he speaks of sacrifice for the greater good, and sometimes of a decision in suspense for awhile. Here, we have him reversed, showing us arrogance, lies to the extent of false prophecy, resistance to spirit, and failure to make the necessary sacrifices. Not a good sign. It is followed by the Star, also reversed. This is pessimism and doubt, which has already taken hold within the population. Next, we see the nine of cups, reversed, in the place of possibilities. This is not the end of the world, but betokens overindulgence, greed, and imperfect plans. Finally, in the place of things that WILL happen, we have the ten of wands, reversed. This is treachery and lost lawsuits, with hints of emigration and escapism. Not a good omen for a presidential administration.

In the place of fears, we have Death, reversed. He is here to tell Trump's constituents and voters that there was never an easy way out of their personal and national problems. Stagnation, at best, is all that can be hoped for. In the place of environment, we have the Knight of Wands, who is a man who usually does not mean personal harm to anyone, but who is capable of stirring rivalry and jealousies. Sometimes, this card speaks to change of residence. The man who has just been elected to the office of president should be a king, not a knight, so this is rather troubling. The knight lacks the king's maturity, and all the other cards have told us, thus far, that we have a president who refuses wise counsel. Moving on to the place of hopes, we find Strength. This is spirit over matter, and it is really America's only hope, right now. Trump does not understand it. The last card, here to define the biggest effect of Trump's presidency, is the three of pentacles, reversed. When this card falls upright, it tells of craftsmanship, trade, and material increase. Reversed, however; it means the exact opposite. Mediocrity, at best, is what we can expect for the economy with Donald Trump at the helm. The hope here is that the American people take the hint offered by the ten of wands, reversed, and work to remove Trump from office.

Will Donald Trump Destroy America?

Someone asked me to do a reading, with this question! I will do two readings here, the first one will be a horoscope spread, which will tell us more about Trump's nature and his plans. I will follow it up with a Celtic Cross, which will give us some very possible outcomes of the Trump presidency. Whatever we see in the readings, though; I ask that no one abandon hope. This is a great nation, and I ask that everyone remember that.

In the first house, of appearance and personality, we have the four of swords, reversed. Not only does this card show us social unrest, but it shows that something has been in the plans, or the works, for awhile and is just about to become active. It shows that Trump has planned something for quite some time, and is using social unrest to accomplish it. Next, in the second house, of money and financial prospects, we see the two of cups, reversed. This is the card of broken partnerships and broken promises. Seeing it in the house of financial prospects does not make me hopeful. Sometimes, it refers to violence. Moving along to the third house, of communication, commerce, and business, we have the five of wands, reversed. Any time we see this card in a reading, it speaks of games, rather than sincerity. When this card falls revered, we can expect legal complications and contradictions in the way laws are applied. Not good, in a reading about a United States president. Next, we have the eight of wands, reversed, in the fourth house of home environment, which, in this case, in the nation. The eight of wands, when it falls reversed, clearly means jealousy and domestic disputes. Finding it here, in the fourth house, is very telling.

The fifth house, of creativity and pleasure, yields the five of swords, reversed. Here, we can expect fact, that's what this card is all about when it falls reversed. It also tells its own story of weakness, violence, and failure. Another denizen of the fifth house is children: we can only hope Donald Trump does not take the welfare of the nation's children lightly, or have an agenda against them. Following this, in the sixth house, of mundane, day to day affairs and health, we have the ten of wands, reversed. This does not bode well for employment and jobs, as the ten of wands, when it shows up reversed, means treachery. It is also not a good message for healthcare. It is a clear warning to be vigilant, or much will be lost. In the seventh house, of partnerships, we have the Star, reversed. When we see the Star reversed, the message is about stubbornness, and refusal to listen. The partners of a nation are generally allies, and a card that tells of refusal to listen is discouraging, when found in a house that governs national allies. The eighth house, of joint finances, death, and karma, gives us the ace of wands. This augers that America will have to start a lot of things anew, after Trump is out of office. But at least, it shows us that there will be an opportunity to do so.

In the ninth house, of long journeys, national and international law, and foreign countries, we have the nine of swords, reversed. This is imprisonment, doubt, and shame. This shows that we may have a lot of difficulties in dealings with other countries, and a lot of it may be tied up in legal affairs, and in interpretations of laws. Extra care in relation to travel is recommended for all Americans during the Trump presidency. Especially to our military. The tenth house, of careers and social standing, gives us the Devil. This is a card of bondage. All Americans, to some degree, will be bound in reputation to Donald Trump, and according to the Devil, this is not really a good thing. The Devil is bondage to material, instead of spiritual; sensation divorced from understanding; inability to listen; and often, violence. Next, in the eleventh house, of hopes, exchange of ideas, friends and social life, we have the seven of swords, reversed. This tells us that there will be good counsel and advice available to Trump. The question, of course, is if he will listen. The last house, of secret enemies, restrictions, spying, and self undoing, yields the ace of swords, reversed. This is a very clear message, especially as it pertains to Donald Trump. When this card falls reversed, it tells of tyranny and too much power. Here, we see it in the house of enemies and self undoing. I think that almost speaks for itself. Donald Trump apparently has a lot to learn.
