A Message From “The Family”: On Surviving the Reign of King Trump

Mister Rand has requested us to speak concerning Donald Trump, the individual who was affirmed as the incoming President of the United States of America. Mister Rand has many fears concerning him: Rand fears that his instability will cause him to employ a nuclear arsenal against countries that annoy him or threaten his self-esteem; that he will take away Mister Rand’s Medicare and Social Security; that he will put Mister Rand into a concentration camp for being a homosexual, spiritualist non-Christian, or Jewish on his father’s side. Mister Rand’s fears are many, and that is the power that Mister Trump wields: the power that chaos has to stimulate fear in individuals dwelling in physical reality.

In the Tarot-based system of personality analysis channeled by Mister Rand and  his now deceased partner, Stuart Lucker, Donald Trump partakes of the aspect of the Divine that standard Tarot decks call The Devil. In Mister Rand’s “Tarot of You” system, The Devil card is named The Pan Essence.

We should like to share with you some facts concerning Pan Essence people, and Mister Trump in particular, for the purpose of both allaying some of Mister Rand’s worse fears, and providing insight into how Mister Trump is likely to behave during his reign as king of America. For that is what he wishes to be seen as: a king on a throne, stern yet benevolent, dealing out largesse to his friends and followers, and death or ruin to his enemies.

How, Mister Rand asks, could the mass consciousness of physical reality have chosen such a person to head up the American government? To this we reply, from our perspective, that the mass consciousness did not in fact choose Donald Trump to be king of America. The mass consciousness chose the Sanders man to be the next President.

But there are many levels to the mass consciousness, including a shadow level in which live all the fears that persons are not willing to examine; and the Greater Self saw that it was time for those fears to come to light, lest they erupt in a Holocaust of force, threat, and blame. And so it was that enough individuals voted for Mister Trump that the electoral college of your America, frightened by the threat of reprisal should they vote according to conscience, chose to acknowledge Mister Trump as the new king. In this the collegians hoped that, whatever befell during Trump’s reign, at least they would be spared the worst of the repercussions.

Understand that the Greater Self cannot make people do what they do not wish to do. It can tweak probability lines in order to make certain outcomes more or less likely to manifest, but most of the time It is dependent upon the willingness of conscious beings to serve as its hands, feet, voice, and eyes in spacetime. And Its power to work through the hearts, brains, and actions of conscious beings is considerable.

We say this as preface to answering Mister Rand’s fears concerning Mister Trump and the chaos he might bring into physical reality during his tenure as President of the United States.

It is important to understand that Pan Essence individuals channel through their bodyminds the principle of unpredictability. “Pan” in ancient Greek means “everything,” and Pan Essence people can move in any number of unpredictable directions from moment to moment, based upon their Ruling Passion: the desire to satisfy their appetites for sex, food, praise, power, vengeance, and freedom from moral restraint.

The number one desire of Mister Trump is to be a more powerful figure than the father he resented and feared. A narcissist, he naturally believes himself to be the center of the universe, entitled to receive anything he desires without effort on his part. Contemptuous of those he deems weaker than himself, envious of those who seem happier than he, and enraged by those who judge him as stupid or laughable, Mister Trump seeks dominance in all areas that interest him.

This is consonant with the Pan Essence, which connects to its emotional body, the Lightning Essence, through the Essence of the Emperor. The Emperor represents the physical, political, and economic structures of spacetime. The Lightning represents the holy madness that characterizes direct experience of the divine. So power,  to Mister Trump, is a drug far more addictive than nicotine or heroin.

In its most extreme manifestations, it causes those addicted to it to wish they were gods. On the other hand, Mister Trump connects to his spiritual aspect, the Death Essence, through the Essence of the Sun. Mister Trump greatly fears death, because in death all consciousnesses return to their state of union with the Greater Self.

And the Pan Essence’s connection with the Sun gives Mister Trump an insatiable craving for attention and approval. He wishes to be lauded as a benevolent dictator, and his fantasy is that, once his enemies are punished and those he wishes to impress are suitably bound to him by his benevolent placings of them into power, the world will come to worship him as the Great Daddy, far surpassing the successes of his physical father, whom he has always felt judged and overshadowed by.

And as the Sun shines its radiance into all areas of the world, so Mister Trump wishes the force of his personality to daw the rich and powerful into orbits around him, so that his appetites for wealth, status, and sensual gratification may continue to be satisfied.

The sad fact, however, is that for the Pan Essence individual, appetite is never satisfied. Always the consumption leads to more and more hunger. And in the end, the chaos at the heart of the Pan person will consume him.

What, then, says Mister Rand, can people do to survive the reign of a self-absorbed, emotionally unstable, addiction-prone narcissist? Will he bring about nuclear war? Will he, as Mussolini did in 1930s and ’40s Italy, make Fascism the new norm for American politics? In the most probable scenarios of the future as we see them, there are several great likelihoods:

(1) Mister Trump does not wish to do much work as President; he wishes to leave that work up to his closest followers, as long as he receives the credit for it. So the persons to watch closely are the Vice President, the members of Mister Trump’s cabinet, and those he places into power over various government agencies. It is these persons in particular who must be watched, their selfishness exposed, and their actions resisted. And they can be resisted to a great extent, if those politicians not aligned with Mister Trump are willing to risk loss of power and status by opposing the worst of Trump’s circle’s exploitation of resources.

(2) Mister Trump sees Vladimir Putin as a template of powerful manhood, and there is a strong likelihood that Mister Trump may attempt to exert controls over media, the Internet, and the economy [similar to those] that Mister Putin has put into effect in Russia. But in this, too, Mister Trump will be forced to think twice about the consequences of his actions when he comes face to face with the resistance of social [and political] activists in Congress, not all of whom will be Democratic Party members.

(3) As the impoverishing effects of Trump economic policies begin to be felt by working class men and women, there is likely to be backlash against him in the press, and against local politicians who supported his policies … As tensions increase, we see a strong likelihood of increased attacks upon populations seen by many as marginalized: specifically, sexual, ethnic, and religious minorities.

These must be countered by locally organized groups of the law-abiding. Many police officers will be among those who resist and decry hate crimes, and you have already seen many cities around your nation who have declared themselves safe havens for the marginalized…In the Congress and Senate, many will vie for Mister Trump’s approval and benisons, and there will be increasing rivalry amongst those who wish to rise in his estimation. Attempts will certainly be made to initiate impeachment proceedings, but these will only succeed when he turns against so many of his sycophants that they are awakened from their trances of power.

The chief strategem we recommend is that of building community on a local level, community devoted to protecting and assisting one another. The fantasy of independence must give way to the reality that interdependence—mutual support and exchange—is the stronger path to balancing the chaos. Spiritual and moral leaders will emerge, especially amongst the younger people, who will be galvanized into action as their consciences are awakened and passion for freedom stimulated.

Likewise must pass away is the fantasy of the Fisher King: of finding an earthly Father or Mother who, in exchange for our worship and resources, will make us safe and happy and protect us from our enemies. Your hands are the hands of Divine Love and Light; your voice, Its voice; and if you are willing to entrust every part of you to Its care, you will experience success and peace beyond your wildest dreams.

And we thank you for sharing.
