No — not that kind of charity!
Just the other day, I was looking at Donald Trump’s birth chart and wondering if any particular planetary placements or aspects indicated a greedy nature. That got me thinking about my own chart and whether or not anything there indicated a charitable nature.
I am a charitable guy. I’m consistently broke because I spend money like it’s going out of style, but I also spend a lot of time volunteering for community organizations. I’ve been a volunteer fitness instructor for more than twenty-seven years with the local YMCA. I’ve taught more than 4,000 fitness classes as a volunteer in that time, as well as lending my expertise and support to the organization in other ways. I’ve also been a board member of the Edmonton Horticultural Society and the Chairman of the Garden Competition. For six years I ran the competition with the help of several other volunteers. It was a tremendous logistical challenge that took months of diligent work to put everything together.
So, even though I don’t have a lot of money to give to charity, I make a concerted effort to make my own little world a better place by donating my time. I figure that someone needs to do it, and it might as well be me.
I don’t know what I should look for in my chart to explain this facet of my character. I know that I have a huge ego and giving my time charitably feeds my ego: it makes me feel good about myself. I’m a Capricorn, too, and we typically value time more than money. But not every one of my fellow goats behaves the way that I do.
Conversely, is there something in Donald Trump’s natal chart that makes him and his sleazy Capricorn sons shift donations to a Cancer charity back into their personal businesses?
I’d like to know. If any of my astrologer friends have any idea of where to look for a charitable nature in a birth chart, please let me know. You can leave a comment here, or continue the discussion on Facebook or Twitter.
I’d appreciate your help! Think of it as a charitable donation . . .
