I am going to preface this by saying that although I have very strong opinions about him, it is my intention to use Donald Trump's chart as a teaching tool for you. I will attempt to keep my heavy bias out of this so you can learn more about astrology.
So why is Donald Trump such an argumentative individual?
He has Mars in Leo conjunct his Ascendant in Leo. The Asc is your first impression to the world; Mars is a fighter. Leo is all about attention, self-expression and being seen for who they truly are. With Mars there, arguing is how he comes across and it just operates in his subconscious because it is in his 12th house. He really has no awareness about how he appears to others.
The 12th house stores the parts of yourself you don't see until you intentionally reflect on its energies and make them part of your conscious awareness. He has no idea that there would be another way to make an impression; he cannot even see this part of himself. Mars in Leo just wants to get his way at any cost. The 12th house is also where we experience our 'undoing' because we have to let go, clear out, and finish energy that started in previous lifetimes. It is a very karmic house. Donald has Mars and Pluto in Leo in the 12th house, signalling a powerful rulership in a previous lifetime and that he is here this time around to meet up with unfinished business.
Donald has his Sun in Gemini (10th house) and his Moon in Sagittarius (4th house) almost exactly opposite, signalling that he was born during a Full Moon. This often means a life of extremes, requiring balance of both parts of the Self into a full whole. If the personality and emotional needs are not identified and known, an individual can feel like they are two different people and be bi-polar. It requires real conscious effort to integrate yourself and the competing personality parts. The 10th house wants to be seen and is all about business; the 4th house wants privacy in the home. At the end of the day, he needs a quiet place, but the next morning, he has to get out and be in the world.
His Sun in Gemini is conjunct Uranus, which is why he is such a wildcard and cannot be "controlled" (if you will). Uranus energy brings in the rebel and the force of the individual personality. In Gemini, this is a free thinker who will say anything and loves change; Gemini doesn't want there to be any predictablility or he'll get bored. Uranus can be a genius, electrifying, and a visionary, especially conjunct the Sun.
The other thing that stands out in his chart is that his ruling planet, Mercury, is in Cancer and his Midheaven's ruler, Venus, is in Cancer conjunct Saturn. Cancer is a big player in his chart, which is the real estate mogul coming through. Saturn is the businessman side of things. Cancer is also the family man, the Father, and the protector. He really is all about his family, and how he can create a legacy (11th house) for the future.
He is having a Jupiter return this year (Jupiter in Libra in 2nd house), so he will be making a lot of money shortly, regardless of how the election turns out.
Ah, politics. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out!
