Moon in Jyeshta: Donald Trump
ADB AA rating
Election update, April 19:
Today is the New York primary, Mr. Trumps home state where he is predicted to win by a landslide on the Republican side. The elections in the USA are brutal and this one is one of the most brutal on both sides.
Love him or hate him, Trump is grabbing the attention of the populous. I too, am riveted. I think one reason is due to the rare phenomenon of the “rise” of the outsiders and in Trump’s case, a non-politician, challenging the status quo and winning (so far). Another reason is the magnetism of Trump whose Moon is in Jyeshta, the Chief Star in gandanta, purnima tithi and eclipsed!
When Trump said this very Indra sounding thing my ears perked up:
“There’s a level of brutality in boxing. It’s hard to take 300 punches in the face and come back for another round. I remember hearing a champ after a fight say to the cameras, ‘I want to thank the Lord, my savior, who gave me the ability to beat the shit out of my opponent.‘” http://www.vanityfair.com/news/1994/03/donald-trump-family-bankruptcy
Donald Trump’s Jyeshta Moon is full and eclipsed just 30 secs from Ketu. In the last karmic knot (gandanta) between the material and spiritual planes; in the abyss where the waters of dissolution meet the fires of creation.
Politics is an intellectual blood sport. To survive one has to be tough and hard. Jyeshta is very suitable to Trump’s mental nature with Shiva Trimurti he can kill without remorse and move on (metaphorically speaking). It is tikshna nature (sharp, dreadful) in rakshasa gana (demon class) giving him the right temperament. In farmer/servant caste, the billionaire has a rapport for the working class stiffs who make up the bulk of his following.
Here is what western astrologer Lisa Hayes says about those born on a Lunar eclipse:
“In a lunar eclipse, the instincts and emotion of the Moon are eclipsed by the Solar conscious energy of the Sun. When emotions and instinctive drives are forced to hide away from the solar light, they can intensify and become more powerful and we often see this with people who are born under a lunar eclipse.”
“People born under a total eclipse carry the intense emotional energy with them, though these lunar instincts may remain hidden for much of their lifetime until they are forced to emerge through some kind of confrontation.”
Vedic astrologer Juliana Swanson wrote this on Feb. 22, 2016:
So far, many astrologers and media pundits have been repeatedly wrong in judging Donald Trump and his US presidential campaign. Every time someone predicts that he will collapse, he only grows stronger….(after winning several primaries in a row)…one has to now acknowledge that he is a “force to be reckoned with.”
she also wrote:
“I have often said that it is difficult for an astrologer to read Mr. Trump’s natal chart because he was born right before a lunar eclipse, within four hours ahead of the eclipse actually, so it is said that his natal Moon is “eclipsed,” which can cloud perception of his public image just as eclipses shadow the luminaries.”
“I have continued to hold that he…. could go far in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination, due to what I see as his empowered natal Moon, which is disposited by a very strong and auspicious Mars, and also due to many other factors including his powerful stationary mahadasa lord Jupiter (using 360-day year length), with Jupiter well placed in Leo navamsa near his main chart’s ascendant degree, and the fact that his secondary progressed Sun (also his chart lord) is conjoined the ascendant now and for some time to come.”

Born from the mouth of the primordial god, Purusha.

He can also be called upon in times of war to give support with his divine weapons and favorable intervention.
Indra is associated with storms & rain. Cardinal point is East.
The formidable thunderbolt-wielding Indra strikes an imposing figure but as king of the gods he is generally benevolent, being generous to his worshipers, guaranteeing peace and prosperity and delivering beneficial rainstorms to end droughts.

Lord Indra, has so much energy that he sleeps very little. Nevertheless here he is getting ready for a good night’s rest in his heavenly loka.
