Scots Rite: Mary Anne MacLeod Trump
Based on the data from the New Yorker Magazine article, this is our presumptive guess for President Trump’s mother’s horoscope. The reason that she has so many intercepted houses is because she was born in a very northern latitude and Koch seems to do no better with them than Placidus. For those charts, it is best use a house system that can & so we opted for the modern Argentinian Topocentric House System.
In the end, we rectified Mrs. Trump’s chart to 9:12 PM, giving her a 10 Sagittarius ascendant, which E.C. Chambers in his book, Degrees of the Zodiac Analyzed, says is “zeal”. PM Winston Churchill has the same degree for his Sun. Her Temperament Type is a Bucket with a Jupiter Handle. Typically, Jupiter in the Twelfth House, particularly in its own Lord, would make the native a very religious person, but in Mrs. Trump’s case it is afflicted by Moon in the Third house, and so while she probably did attend Sunday services, it was more out of duty than devout belief. Also, Jupiter handles tend to show up in people who are highly conventional and supportive of established societal values, but in an ostentatious manner and so do everything in a big and grand way (her son seems to have inherited that flair).

She’s leaving home
We know little about Mrs. Trump herself, other than tidbits reported like the New Yorker story aforementioned. The Map though does shed a little more light on the lady, confirming that she was born with some amount of wanderlust to leave her native Scotland and go aboard, full of optimistic conviction that things would turn out.
With Pluto in her seventh house, we wonder if the reason was not because as her 28 Pluto in Gemini suggests that she felt that the opportunity in her natives Lewes was “bankrupt” and as the keyword for this symbol suggests, she needed “deliverance” from a bleak and sterile environment. If so, going to New York City and not a much closer, London, was a rather fortuitous choice. Maybe the issue there, was London was not far enough, or as a Scottish patriot, she did not want to become English.
Neptune and Mars in the Seventh house suggest that while she married a dynamic and energetic man, in many ways they were quite different and so his busy business schedule and her busy societal one worked out well after the initial attraction; Neptune suggests that they had little in common other than their children and the ambitious dreams of a New York “power couple.”
Mrs. Trump has no aspects for her Line of Vitality.The orb between the Sun and the Moon is too great to matter. Marc Edmund Jones writes that in that case, that she does not take physical control of her life, but relies much more on fate, rather apropos for a devout Presbyterian.
The only planetary pair that she does have, is the Line of Personality, that aspect between her Saturn and Jupiter. In Mrs. Trump’s case it is trine like the Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. This Dr. Jones writes, that she has a “natural momentum” with great sensitivity to her opportunities. It also agrees with her presidential son, that it belies her “surplus of mental energy” in handling anything thrown at her. It would seem that besides her golden hair, President Trump also inherited a few other attributes from his Mum.
