Donald Trump is a Leo ascendant with Ascendant lord Sun in 10th house of career but in badhaka planet Mars constellation. Sun is aspected by 12th lord Moon, 8th lord Jupiter, and conjunct Rahu. The ascendant lord sun is influenced by all malefics in his chart, this makes him a shrewd and cunning business man who filed for bankruptcy few times, and then by hook or by crook was able to pay off all his debts and make billions of dollars. With real estate values declining in US due to the recession and there is no hope of immediate recovery, Trump is trying his luck in a new field, politics. I am pretty sure he is serious about the Presidentship this time but at wrong time in his life. He could have very easily become President if he was in Mercury sub period or moon sub period. But at the time of next elections he will be in rahu / sun period and sun is the most evil planet in his chart and rules his ascendant as well. Trump is in the final 5 years of rahu cycle. The final years of rahu are always a challenging time.
Saturn is transiting the 2nd house of money, and speech, in Virgo sign and also aspecting the natal position of 2nd house lord Mercury in Gemini at this moment. This clearly indicates that Donald Trump is having serious financial problems at this time, will lose more money this year before Saturn completes its transit through Virgo sign. Donald Trump used F word few times in one of his speeches because the 2nd house lord Mercury is afflicted by Saturn in his chart at this moment. So Trump needs to watch his words because he may say things which other people may find offensive.
At present Donald Trump is in Rahu main period and Venus sub period until Oct 2012. Venus rules 3rd house of change and 10th house of career, and it is in Jupiter's constellation which rules 5th house of celebrity status, entertainment business and is in 2nd house of money. Venus sub period indicates change in career, and Rahu being in Venus sign Taurus can offer these results in Rahu main period and Venus sub period. In my opinion Donald Trump is in good planets period right now but the transits of Saturn, Rahu, Ketu and Jupiter are highly unfavorable for him.
The period from May 10th to mid June is still a good period for Donald Trump as mahadasha lord Rahu by transit will be receiving aspect from the transit Jupiter in Aries. But the planetary energy will shift and become very negative the moment mahadasha lord Rahu enters scorpio, and will start receiving aspect from transit Saturn in Virgo by its 3rd aspect. In june/July 2011 Rahu and Ketu will be going over the natal position ascendant lord Sun, 12th lord Moon and natal rahu and ketu. The eclipses will be falling very close to natal sun and natal moon. A really challenging period will be when Saturn enters Libra and immediately starts aspecting natal Venus the sub period lord and natal Saturn, the 7th house lord from November 2011 to August 2012. This will be the time when Donald Trump may be fired from his position. This will also be the time when public opinion will be against Donald Trump and his polls will be down, and he will not receive any support from Republican Party. Donald Trump will also have problems in his career and marriage during this time. Mars the badhaka planet rules 4th house of real estate and 9th house of politics. So both real estate and politics will become the reason of Trump's downfall.
