Why Trump’s corona is our evolution
There’s a lot of talk about karma at play in the US right now. What happens when we defy reality because we believe we are god? That depends on how we think about god. Let me explain why Trump’s coronavirus is a sign of human evolution, and what it means for our relationship with reality and divinity.
There’s this thing called hubris, where we believe we are better than the gods. I think we can fairly say Trump suffers from hubris. His Hybris asteroid is conjunct his Pluto in Gate 33 and Hybris is transiting on his Moon and South Node in Gate 26, that’s fate at work right there. Remember that Gate 26 is highly significant in everything to do with pandemics!
What Trump’s contraction of coronavirus represents though, is a deep underlying shift in the allegiance of humanity, from those we believed would keep us safe, to a direct relationship with a new kind of reality.
Nature is always more powerful than culture, and we are creating a new kind of culture that nests into nature, whilst also connecting with a sense of universal place. Our natural selves are releasing bonds and becoming more available to a greater emerging reality. As an individual sitting in this flow of universal conscious, you are finding your unique place in this matrix.
Those who continue to hitch their star to the old patriarchal power structures will begin to fall in the face of this new reality.
Too Good for God
In Greek mythology mortals are always getting punished for bothering the gods, for being hubristic. Arachne, Niobe and Prometheus were just way too exceptional and it made the gods uncomfortable.
This might seem like ancient history (okay, it is ancient history!) but it has implications for all of us right now.
This powerful tipping point in human evolution is calling us to outgrow the need for an external and idealised deity. Not in the – I don’t believe in god I’m an atheist – kind of way. This is about connecting directly and individually with the power of divinity and pure consciousness that previously always required an intermediary.
Evolving Beyond God
We are becoming co-creators, in effect making the very idea of god irrelevant. We can see it playing out in politics. Those who rely on the hierarchical nature of ‘headship’ – unquestionable divine rule from the top – are throwing everything at an unruly global populace. They might seem to be winning the contest today, but their world is cracking under the weight of individual ingenuity. The people are breaking free and finding new ways to ‘govern’.
Our culture is based on the mechanical ideas of the Newtonian era. You are an object, rather than a process. Your life is organised from the outside, to meet the needs of your ‘betters’, lived to an external rhythm not your own. In this kind of life your unique creative contribution withers and dies.
But we are not captured objects inside an abusive culture. We are continually evolving self-organising hubs of consciousness within a vast web of life. And we are flowing beyond this moment and into the next era of humanity.
A wrong that cannot be repaired must be transcendedUrsula K. Le Guin
Along the way we have to move through the paradox of exceptionalism. And this is why the USA is the crucible for the evolutionary process we are now in the midst of, being the very birthplace of the myth of exceptionalism.
Are You Really Exceptional?
I’ve been talking a bit about privilege, how I’ve been confronting my own, how we need to break this down so we can begin to see every person and form of life on this planet as part of the ‘one’.
We have to face what keeps us from being ‘at one’ with every other person on this planet. And the most significant block is exceptionalism – where we believe we are somehow entitled due to being somewhat extraordinary. We have to find our own hubris.
Now, you might say this has nothing to do with you, and I completely understand your position here! This is something I’ve been digging more and more deeply into without really being able to grasp it. But then we heard the news that Trump has tested positive to coronavirus and suddenly all the pieces fell into place.
I pulled up Trump’s chart. I was puzzled, nothing jumped out at me. Then I saw so many people talking about karma and I wondered if the asteroids Karma and Nemesis might be playing out here.
Nemesis in particular is interesting, given that she is all about punishing hubris, arrogance towards the gods.
There’s no doubt that Trump has been playing god with coronavirus, having large gatherings, not wearing masks, deliberately contradicting the science.
The entitlement to go about their business even while endangering others was on full display at the first debate on Tuesday when the Trump entourage showed up too late to be tested, and took off their masks in the auditorium. Both actions went against the ‘honour system’ put in place to keep everyone safe.
This is an evolutionary leap
Remember how I mentioned that we are evolving beyond our gods? Right now, the people who have claimed to represent unquestionable divinity here on earth – the Zeus crowd – are being dethroned.
Those who think they are god are flying about in their personal jets, floating around in their massive yachts while over 600 million people go hungry every day (most of those in so-called- developed countries by the way).
The balance of hubris has shifted. Where once we were punished for not obeying the ‘head’ – god’s annointed on earth (so they told us), it is those ultra-powerful and ultra-rich who are now displaying hubris to the new level of divinity – which is universal consciousness.
This is a clear signal that humanity has shifted their allegiance from this external source of divinity to their own connection with truth, integrity and personal alignment with a greater power. The intermediary has been removed.
The Paradox of Exceptionalism
You are exceptional, extraordinary, unique and magnificent. You don’t have to compete for that. You just are. Trying to control life so you get your share just keeps you stuck in the ordinary. Right now we have to move into a more harmonious relationship with something greater. And that requires disruption to our personal psyche.
You can only find how exceptional you are when you stop trying to be exceptional.
Donald Trump really is the gift that just keeps giving!
Trump has Nemesis in Gate 53, with his Mars and Saturn. Which is intriguing, because Jupiter is transiting in the complementary gate 54 right now, and making a channel with Nemesis in Gate 32.
That’s a lot of Nemesis, the Goddess of Retribution and of rebalancing the world when hubris knocks it out of kilter.
Mars is retrograde in the complementary gate to Trump’s Nemesis. This is a gate that suggests we need to let go of trying to control things, and flow with universal consciousness. If we can’t do that, we will have our lives and plans entirely disrupted.
Today, as I write, we have the Moon, Mars retrograde and dwarf planet Eris ALL in Gate 42 line 4, making a channel with Trump’s Nemesis.
Move freely with the flow of Increase, go to the centre of things, become actively involved in the changes. It’s time for the city to be transplanted to a more auspicious site. Rather than making do with how things are, you must disengage completely from our old, ill-omened situation and move into a more harmonious alignment with heaven. This is a radical shift.I Ching, Hilary Barret. 42.4.

Revealing What’s Hidden
Eris is so important here.
You may remember how Eris carved For The Fairest into a golden apple and chucked it into the celebrations of a wedding she hadn’t been invited to. The three presiding goddess’s – Pallas, Hera and Aphrodite – were supposedly squabbling over it and Zeus stepped in, asking hot-blooded Paris to choose ‘the fairest’. Surprise! Paris chose Aphrodite and that was the trigger for the Trojan War, which was exactly as Zeus had planned. And yet, it’s always Eris who is blamed for starting the war, never Zeus. Don’t get me started on that!
Eris brings out what is hidden in the system, deliberately obscured to prevent us knowing who is pulling the strings. She is the whistleblower. The best example of Eris at work is Julian Assange, who has Eris conjunct his Design Sun and Chiron in Gate 21.
I had flagged this period a while back, when I saw that Zeus and Jupiter are together in Gate 54 (that gate again!). And I expected Zeus-ian events. And, because this is a pile-on, Hera and Aphrodite are in Gate 53 at the moment and Pallas is lining up to move into Gate 54 tomorrow. They are all there! Juno is in Gate 28 with Mercury. She is all about mutually respect, equality and fairness in relationship.
So today, the very Zeus-ian Trump falls ill with a virus when his Nemesis (hubris and arrogance) is being activated by Mars and Eris, and the entire pantheon of goddesses has turned up to make it a party! Hubris and the South Node (fate, the past catching up with you) are also at play in the gate that is central to pandemics.
What does it mean? The machinations of Zeus are unmasked by whistleblower Eris. The dark and hidden ways of manipulating power and money are coming to the light. The previously powerful are hitched to the wrong star.
Just on that, Varda, queen of the elves and creator of the stars, is also in Gate 26. There is even more to support this story than these minor planets I’ve mentioned, but I’ll stop there!
You have probably noticed how much more obvious the machinations of corruption have become, how much more openly people are talking about them. We can all thank Trump for that. He has played his role.
