The 2016 USA Election will be held on November 8th when there is a controlling T Square onto Pluto in Capricorn from a Jupiter in Libra opposition Uranus; and another T Square onto Saturn in Sagittarius from a North Node opposition Neptune. Saturn and Pluto both suggest a conservative victory. And indeed tr Jupiter will conjunct the USA’s 1776 Saturn in Libra shortly after, which could also be seen as a boost for the traditional party. That’s speculative but thoughts to ponder.
Donald Trump has a plethora of lucky, successful Jupiter this year with tr Pluto square his Jupiter in Libra from March on and off till late 2017. Plus Solar Arc Pluto conjunct Jupiter, exact at the New Year – and tr Jupiter conjunct both, between the election and inauguration. He’s also got helpful Uranus transits to Jupiter midpoints now till mid-April and returning in December/January 2017.
However he also, less helpfully, has tr Uranus square his Saturn in Cancer in late May/June as well as tr Uranus square his Mars/North Node midpoint at the same time – both of which are high-tension, argumentative and can accompany heart scares. And tr Pluto trine his Mars/Neptune June to mid July which is low energy and confused. Plus tr Uranus square his Sun/Mars midpoint from late June to early September which is overtaxing strength, over hasty, having to adjust to new conditions.
His Solar Return from June 2016 for a year has a pressured Pluto in the 6th square a 10th house Uranus – which could either point to health issues forcing a change of direction; or a change of direction landing him with too much work. Four of his Lunar Returns – March, April, May/June and October – have planets in the 6th which could again indicate overwork impacting on health.
Other thought is that tr Pluto square his Jupiter from March can lead to an over reach of confidence, often financial, but also can push the individual into thinking that rules governing ordinary mortals don’t apply to them.
Bernie Sanders does have tr Uranus sextile his Jupiter this year mid March to early April which is mild but good news; and tr Pluto trine his Virgo Sun, on and off all year, which is generally progressive. On the downside he has tr Neptune square Jupiter/Saturn and then Jupiter/Uranus mid Feb to mid April which suggests a bit of a slide. The second week in May till the end of the month has high tension tr Uranus square Sun/Saturn and Sun/Uranus as well as tr Uranus opposition Venus and then conjunct Mars in late May to end of June – all of those are insecure, high tension, jolting and the last one can put strain on heart in older people.
If birth time of 12.27pm is accurate he has tr Uranus conjunct his Moon in the second half of March; and Solar Arc Pluto opposition his Moon, exact across the election. The Moon is emotional but is also associated with the body.
Hillary, as ever, remains an enigma, and has a dodgy birth time. She gets a minor uplift from tr Pluto sextile Sun/Jupiter now till early March and again June to mid July. But has wobbly, insecure transits to other mid points apart from that. Tr Uranus will trine her Saturn over the election which could arguably be a positive change of direction/lifestyle. But on its own it’s hardly strong enough to indicate a victory.
Ted Cruz, without birth time, doesn’t look to be on a winning streak; and neither does Rubio, again without birth time. Both would be hoping to mop up the anyone-but-Trump votes as the other candidates throw in the towel.
