The Battle Is in the Stars: Trump v Cuomo

Donald Trump

“I like conflict,” the president said Tuesday. “I like having two people with different points of view, and I certainly have that. Then I make a decision. But I like watching it, I like seeing it, and I think it’s the best way to go.” – Rebecca Ballhaus, “Trump Defends West Wing Turnover: ‘I Like Conflict,” www.wsj.com, March 6, 2018

Sometimes folks do or say things that sing their horoscope fantastic. Donald Trump has the planet Uranus with the Sun, opposing the Moon and trine Jupiter, yes, he likes conflict, but he loves chaos better. This combination also makes him extremely lucky. Some folks think he walks on water and that he is handling this pandemic superbly, while others are gnashing their teeth. He is a Gemini with Moon opposing in Sagittarius with that maverick, rebel rousing Uranus conjunct his Gemini Sun. Erratic and unpredictable are hallmarks of his personality. This combination can be scattered and unfocused. His Twitter posts reflect that strong Uranus, the love of stirring things up.  

Andrew Cuomo

“No American is going to say ‘accelerate the economy at the cost of human life,’” Cuomo argued. March 24, 2020 News Conference 

It is no wonder that Andrew Cuomo is going head to head with Donald Trump during this crisis. Andrew Cuomo is a Sagittarius with Moon in Gemini. (exact opposite of Trump’s placements). His Mercury, how you think and process information, is in Capricorn. During a crisis, a Mercury in Capricorn person is who you want on the job. Practical and just the facts, please. No Drama. His Mars is in Scorpio, very strong, and with this placement, he will take no crap from anyone. His Venus in Aquarius brings skills at networking and connecting. (And take note: Mars in Scorpio/Venus in Aquarius = hot kinky sex). Saturn will be sitting on that Venus for the next couple of months, so I don’t think he will be into fun and games. He will be into hammering out deals and using diplomacy to get things done.  

Trump and Cuomo – The Clash of the Titans 

They are both Full Moon babies, born with Sun opposing Moon. Cuomo’s Sun in Sagittarius opposes Trump’s Sun in Gemini. The Moon in their charts has flip-flopped as well — Gemini Moon for Cuomo and Sagittarius Moon for Trump. The kicker here in this war of words is their Mercurys. Mercury is how you think, speak and process information. Trump has his Mercury in Cancer. Mercury in Cancer says what it feels. Emotions play a big part in the thought process. Cuomo’s Mercury is directly opposite in Capricorn.  Capricorn Mercury says more with less. This opposition is almost exact. So yes, it is a war of words.  

Cuomo has Saturn conjunct his Sun in Sagittarius, and that combination is directly opposite Donald Trump’s Uranus. Uranus wants to run wild and free. Saturn says no, you must take care of business. Cuomo’s Uranus sits on Trump’s Pluto. This placement for Trump speaks to his hidden power, what is going on behind the scenes. Cuomo is going to shake that up, bringing his own monkey wrench into the picture. It will be interesting for sure. 

What it all means in plain English is this: Cuomo is going to call him out (Mercury) and hold his feet to the fire (Saturn).
