With his manipulative Gemini Sun, ‘Pollyanna’ foot-in-mouth Sagittarius Moon and self-aggrandizing Leo rising… Trump is… well, always Trump (no astrological offense to others, since Trump seems to embody the worst traits of each influence). I hardly find him funny or entertaining… it repulses me to watch or hear him speak like the slickest, slimiest, snakiest used car salesman, and be so insulting, tacky, blasphemous and inappropriate… everything a decent, caring, authentic, soul-infused human being shouldn’t say, do, or be!
