There’s so much being said about Donald Trump, whether rightly or not, terms such as racist, sexist and xenophobic are being flung in his face… but then, Donald Trump’s mouth may be to blame here. Whether Trump is playing a smart political game here or otherwise, he’s been given a whole number of titles by the press internationally but perhaps the most fitting of all is Diva! …well his astrological chart would suggest this anyway.
Born on 14th June 1946, Donald Trump falls under the Chinese Sign of the Dog and the Western sign of the Gemini. When these two signs come together, it creates a controversial personality that is known for its sharpness of mind (and tongue), self-importance and, believe it or not, beauty. In other words, this combination of signs creates the Diva personality. It is the same place in the East meets West cycle where Annette Benning, Naomi Campbell and even Judy Garland were born. Recently deceased, Prince also belonged to this Diva combination.
The following is Donald Trump’s Combined Astrology Chart taken from Zakariya Adeel’s book, Secrets of the Combined Astrology, releasing on 27th May 2016 by Dodona Press.

When the Dog’s tornado merges with Gemini’s hectic hurricane, air meets air, idealism meets humanitarianism and the search for beauty meets the need to make a statement. These two air signs have much in common, which creates a somewhat consistent character, but one that is not easy to manage. The Dog comes with deep convictions, is prepared to take risks to explore them and on some level, sees itself as an example for others to learn from; the Gemini lends its frisky sense of fun, love of social play and desire to inspire.
The Dog-Gemini is not necessarily the most likeable of combinations with their highly opinionated views that often polarize people either for or against them. This is why they are supremely celebrated as well as denigrated. When asked about her looks, Supermodel Naomi Campbell stated, “I don’t think I was born beautiful.
I just think I was born me.” Naturally beautiful, Dog-Geminis seek to preserve and augment their beauty even more so. This never-ending chase of beauty is a very Dog sign trait and it is most powerful at this part of the cycle. Along with this however, is the need for personal authenticity at all costs. They can handle not being liked (or so they claim), but what they cannot handle is not living up to their own expectations, especially regarding their standards of integrity, even if they are unattainable. Judy Garland said, “I’m a woman who wants to reach out and take 40 million people in her arms.”
Dog signs in general are trendsetters, have the most fertile imaginations and also the broadest skill set. They are multi-talented people whose abilities rank almost as highly as their looks. Despite the icy surface, they can be highly insecure creatures even though they claim not to care what other people think about them. Some may say, they protest too much. This might also explain the mask of narcissism so many of them wear. It could also be the reason why addiction is often a problem for this combination. Naomi Campbell, Judy Garland and footballer George Best all had public struggles with addiction; it is what is believed to have taken Garlands and Best’s life. George Best said, ‘I was born with a great gift, and sometimes with that comes a destructive streak…I was ill, and everyone could see it but me’.
The men of this combination can be exceptionally alpha types, endowed with looks, money and power. Who better to illustrate the Dog-Gemini male than Donald Trump? Describing himself, he said, “Love him or hate him, Trump is a man who is certain about what he wants and sets out to get it, no holds barred. Women find his power almost as much of a turn-on as his money.” These men are smart, sharp and instinctive. Their feelings offer them powerful guidance and they listen, but they just don’t talk about it. The last thing that they would want is to be seen as airy-fairy; no, they are top dog; they demand to be taken seriously and perceived as in-control, powerful with a touch of the cool. And what is ‘cool’ to them? Superstar Prince has said, ‘Cool means being able to hang with yourself. All you have to ask yourself is ‘Is there anybody I’m afraid of? Is there anybody who if I walked into a room and saw, I’d get nervous?’ If not, then you’re cool’.
The women of this combination tend to be quiet, intelligent and sharp. Their minds pick up on the details of a situation quickly and that activist part of them is always ready to fight for a cause. They are notorious for putting in complaints because someone did not do their job properly or did not fulfill the terms of their agreement. They get a real sense of validation when they make a difference for their community, even if that very same community shuns them. But even the gentler, softer Dog-Geminis will not be moved if they do not choose to. Even Judy Garland said, “You think you can make me sing? Do you think you can? You can get me there, sure, but can you make me sing? I sing for myself. I sing when I want to, whenever I want to, just for me. I sing for my own pleasure, whenever I want. Do you understand that?” Incidentally, when Hollywood was going to make a biopic of Judy Garland’s life, it was going to star Annette Bening, who is also a Dog-Gemini.
Ultimately, they can be the most respected of people and at other times they are criticized all the way down to hell; but whatever the social weather, one thing that remains is that they will be who they are at all costs. Personal authenticity, loyalty and fairness are the most important priorities to a Dog-Gemini. As Naomi Campbell has said, “I loved watching so many of the great designers I’ve worked with do what they do. That’s why I’m still loyal to the designers that I’ve known since I was 16.” Pleasing people comes a distant second to staying true to what they stand for and they can be verbal ninjas when at their best. Donald Trump has said, “When somebody challenges you, fight back. Be brutal, be tough.” So despite all of their prickliness, sourpuss criticism and egocentric narcissism, why are they still so talked about and actually, so popular? Because they are troupers who have a larger than usual struggle which when they decide to take on, do so admirably. Beyond everything, it is their refusal to give up that wins them everyone’s respect because it is a rare and quality trait. It doesn’t entirely make sense, but as Prince has said, ‘A strong spirit transcends rules’.
