About 2016 US Presidential Election
Based on information
obtained from Astro-data Bank (Astro.Com) with Rodden rating AA, Mr.
Trump's birth details
Date: June 14, 1946
Time: 10:54 AM (EDT)
Place: Jamaica, New York (40N41, 73W48)
Secretary Clinton, no verified birth information is available.
Among the two publicly available birth times (8:02 AM and 8:00 PM) ,
none of them seem to fit her characteristics and life events satisfactorily.
Assuming the actual birth time is closer to one of these times, through the
process of rectification, I have come up with her birth time 8:10 AM
as the basis for this analysis.
October 26, 1947
8:10 AM (CST)
Birth Place: Chicago,
Ill (41N51, 87W39)
The analysis is based on
the sidereal zodiac system with Placidus house division, and the
method of interpretation is mostly according to Vedic astrology.
was fittingly born under Leo ascendant (rising sign) as a very
independent minded person with heavy chips on his shoulders, lot of fire
and a charismatic personality. As shown in his sidereal natal chart below, the ascendant ruler, Taurus Sun, occupies the tenth
house, the house of profession, business, politics, fame and prestige, and thus
making him a person whose entire life revolves around the sole purpose of
accumulating wealth. The tenth house cusp ruler, Cancer Venus, occupies
the 11th house, potentially assuring him success in any business endeavors he
Sidereal Natal Chart of Donald J Trump
addition, the most striking planetary configuration in his birth chart is the
placement of the lunar nodes, Rahu (the north lunar node) and Ketu (the south
lunar node). Mr. Trump was born just a few
hours prior to the beginning of a total lunar eclipse. If he were born
during the eclipse period, the story would be entirely different and I wouldn't
be writing about him. And also, he was born during late morning hours when the
Moon was not visible, minimizing the direct influence of the eclipse.
he was born close to the eclipse. As a result, the first house ruler Sun
conjuncts Rahu in the tenth house and the 12th house ruler
Moon conjuncts Ketu in the fourth house. Since the materialistic Rahu
loves the tenth house, Rahu in the tenth house with a very powerful Sun (being
the ruler of the first house, yogakaraka planet) makes him an extraordinarily egoist and
wealthy professional. Furthermore, the Taurus
Uranus is with in three degrees with Rahu in the tenth house, providing him with
possibility of becoming the leader of the USA since Uranus very closely matches the characteristics of
interesting to note the presence of Rahu-Uranus conjunction in both President
George W Bush and Barack Obama's natal charts. Thus, Rahu-Uranus conjunction may
be used as one of the litmus-tests to confirm a potential of becoming the
president of the USA. Therefore, it's not surprising (despite totally unexpected) that
Mr. Donald Trump became the presidential nominee of the Republican
Party in July 2016.
my opinion, typically, the axis along which the lunar nodes lie in a natal
chart, defines the axis of the major challenges in life for that person.
Thus, for Mr. Trump that axis lies through the 4th-10th house. It is clearly
evident from his life experiences that most of the ups and downs that he
experienced in his life dealt with the 4th house (real estate, home, house,
the 10th house (profession, business, politics, etc.,). Also, Sun
(showmanship) being in Taurus ruled by Venus (celebrity) in the 10th house and
the 10th house ruler Venus in the 11th house (fame) makes him a famous
celebrity. However, according to Vedic astrology, if the first house ruler
conjuncts Rahu, then typically person has a character flaw, and invariably this
flaw eventually brings the person down. In Mr. Trump's case the first
house ruler Sun conjuncts Rahu in the 10th house with in three degrees, and
therefore despite Rahu's favorable position in the tenth house and in Taurus
sign, the possibility exists that Mr. Trump might likely to do himself in and bring himself down.
important planetary configurations in his natal chart include the placement of Virgo
(material wealth) Jupiter (5th, 8th and the 9th house ruler) in the second house
making him a person born in a large, rich and well to do family, and blessed
with wonderful children and lucky! The
4th house ruler, Leo Mars in the 12th house means he is stubborn and loves being
of Rahu and Sun in his ninefold natal chart (below) in the cardinal
fourth house on the 4th-10th axis confirms the dominance of Sun and Rahu
in his natal chart.
Ninefold Natal Chart
Uranus occupies the third, Pluto seventh and Venus second house in his ninefold natal chart.
Uranus being the unconventional planet of change occupying the
adventurous and dynamic third house aptly confirms its tenth house
strength in his natal chart. And since Uranus exhibits the
characteristics of the USA, Trump's chart seems to closely tied with the
destiny of the USA. No wonder he could successfully tap into
the psyche of this country and people.
Clinton was born
under Scorpio ascendant (rising sign). Scorpio is a fixed and
water sign ruled by fiery Mars. The
first house ruler, Cancer Mars, resides in the 9th house making her a very
independent person, who is fortunate and blessed in always having ample opportunities. The presence of Scorpio Jupiter (the ruler of the
second and the fifth house) in the first house makes her an optimist, matured, analytical,
lucky and popular. She is amiable, helping and caring in nature and
the same time very emotional (Cancer Mars). One of her unique
challenges in her life is to having to deal with situations where she is
forced to reconcile between the tendency of ambitious Mars to be very
possessive and self-centered and at the same time (due to presence of
Jupiter in the first house and the water (Scorpio) sign nature of being
caring and helping those who desperately need help) to deal with her
emotional nature. As a result, there are times she fails and is
sidereal natal chart
to the conjunction of the political planet Cancer Pluto with the first
house ruler Mars in the ninth house of her natal chart, her destiny
(Pluto) literally forces her towards politics. In addition, the
presence of Cancer Saturn (another political planet), the ruler of the
third (her adventurous spirit) and the fourth (life time achievements)
paves her way to politics in a natural way. Due to the disposition
of Cancer Saturn in the ninth house, she is intelligent, lawyer, enjoys
long journeys, very emotional and fortunate.
the most striking planetary combinations in her natal chart is the
presence of lunar nodes right on the first and the seventh house cusps
making her extremely powerful person. While the lunar node Rahu
(north node) on the 7th house cusp reflects her material (and therefore,
political) ambitions and achievements, the south node Ketu (due to the
presence of Jupiter in the first house) provides her with the
non-materialistic tendencies that she must accommodate in her life.
These nodes reflect her perpetual challenges she faces all through her
life making her feel not totally satisfied despite all her
important political planet, the tenth house ruler Libra Sun in the
eleventh house of her natal chart practically assures her political
prestige, fame, prosperity, popular lead personality and
wealth. The ninth house ruler, Aquarius Moon in the fourth house
makes her intelligent, lucky, loving mother, wealthy, happy in her family
life, attached to her mother and daughter, adorable and blessed.
eighth and the eleventh house ruler, Libra Mercury, in the twelfth house
certainly is responsible for challenges that creates the perception about
her being as "untrustworthy". When Mercury rules the eighth house
and occupies the twelfth house of the natal chart, it has a tendency to get
the person in trouble,
and if not careful and aware, the person can get into situations where he or she may
be perceived by others as untrustworthy.
placement of the trio of the political planets (Mars, Pluto and Rahu) in
the 7th house, as shown in her ninefold natal chart below, conforms that
Secretary Clinton becomes the presidential nominee of the Democratic
Party. Also, note the favorable placement of Saturn in the 9th house
and Uranus in the 4th house in her ninefold natal chart, further
strengthening her natal chart from the standpoint of having potential to
become the leader of the free world.
Secretary Clinton's Ninefold
both the candidates share some important
planetary combinations in their ninefold natal birth charts. Pluto, the
planet of politics and transformation, is the key in determining success
in a political career. Both of them have Pluto in the seventh house of
their ninefold natal charts.
I begin the analyses of their respective progressive and ninefold
progressive charts for the election day, I would like to recognize few
important possibilities between now and the election day.
Mr. Trump, according to his current Dasa
cycle he is running Rahu-Mars Dasa, and it will end by October 7, 2016, and
then a brand new Dasa cycle of Jupiter will begin. Until October 7, he
might go through the experiences which could be perceived as
"self-destructive". If he survives that period, he is then likely to continue his
campaign with lot less mischief.
Secretary Clinton, I don't see any significant issues
(except perhaps about her personal life and health) for her in carrying out her
Day Analysis for Mr. Trump
election day evening (November 8, 8 PM ET), the planets influencing Mr. Trump as
operating planets (as
highlighted in red in his progressive chart below for that day) are Venus and
Saturn. Note that in his natal chart Saturn and Venus conjunct in
the eleventh house (the house of success). While Venus rules the tenth
of his natal chart (profession, business, politics, showmanship, etc.,),
Saturn rules the sixth (adversaries) and the seventh house (the house of
spouse and professional or business partner) of his natal chart.
evening of election day, Venus will be (as shown below) in the seventh house in
Mr. Trump's progressive chart and in the eleventh house in his ninefold
progressive chart (not shown). While the seventh house Venus in his
progressive chart is not so favorable for achieving success, the
eleventh house Venus in the ninefold progressive chart is favorable. Similarly
on the election day, the sixth house Saturn in his progressive chart is
favorable for him to be victorious, but the eighth house Saturn in his
ninefold progressive chart (not shown) indicates struggle.
Progressive Chart of Donald J Trump for
the Election Day
(November 8, 2016, 8 PM ET)
Besides the operating planet
Venus and Saturn, his auspicious planets
(based on his natal chart) Sun and Mars are respectively placed in the
neutral fifth and the unfavorable eighth house of his progressive chart and
eleventh and ninth house of his ninefold progressive chart (not shown).
Day Analysis for Secretary Clinton
Secretary Clinton, there are two operating planets that will influence
her outcome for the evening of election day (highlighted
in red in the progressive chart below for that day): Rahu in the second
house and Sun in the fourth house. In her corresponding
ninefold progressive chart (not shown) Rahu is in the second and Sun is in the
tenth house. Thus, while Rahu in both the progressive and the
ninefold progressive charts is sort of neutral for her on the election
day, Sun is slightly favorable in the progressive chart and very
favorable in the ninefold progressive. Keep in mind that in her natal
chart both of these planets are strong and favorably placed from the
Chart of Hillary Clinton for the Election Day
8, 2016 (8 PM ET)
Besides the operating planets,
her auspicious planets
(based on her natal chart) are Moon and Sun.
While Sun's influence is already covered above, Moon is placed in the
eighth house of her progressive chart.
The natal charts of
both candidates are similar in strength. Both are dominated by powerful
nodes in the cardinal houses. While for Mr. Trump the tenth house
is most predominant with Rahu in conjunction with the first house ruler Sun and the
powerful Rahu-Uranus conjunction, Secretary Clinton draws her strength
from the ninth house Mars-Pluto conjunction, Mars being the first house
ruler, along with the third and fourth house ruler Saturn. In addition,
while Mr. Trump has wonderfully placed Jupiter (family, prestige and
wealth) in the second house and Venus, Mercury and Saturn in the 11th
house, Secretary Clinton relies on her powerful Sun (the ruler of the
10th house) in the 11th house (success). On the challenging front,
Mr. Trump is clobbered by the 12th house Mars (confrontational, fight
picker, bully, impulsive and irrational) and Secretary Clinton with the
eighth house ruler Mercury in the 12th house (careless and
untrustworthy). As a result of these respective challenges, both of them
have the most unfavorable ratings.
compared their progressive charts for the election night, both of them
have similar strength. Secretary Clinton may have a slight edge
over Mr. Trump due to the favorable placement of her operating planet
Sun. But that slight edge is easily overcome by the fact that his
placement of natal Uranus is far more powerful than her natal Uranus.
Now let us compare each
candidate’s planetary transits with respect to their natal charts for
the election day.
the election day the transiting Uranus sextiles Mr. trump's natal Rahu and trines natal Moon
and Ketu. Although none of these planets are operating ones for him, he
still can be benefited by these aspects. Because in his natal chart,
Rahu conjuncts Uranus, it's like his "Karma" conjuncts
nation's destiny for better or worse. Perhaps this maybe the reason he
has beaten all the odds to get to this point when most of the political
pundits discounted his candidacy. Therefore, should he get
elected as the president of the USA, it will certainly be due to this
powerful placement of Rahu and Uranus in the 10th house of his natal
chart alone reflecting the powerful and total alignment of his karma
with the nation's destiny at that point in time.
Secretary Clinton, the transiting Saturn trines her natal Pluto and
Mars. And the transiting Jupiter conjuncts her natal Neptune. Although
none of these planets are her operating ones on that day, the ninth
house resident Pluto, Mars and Saturn being her most prominent planets
in her natal chart, the trine of the transiting Saturn with natal Pluto
and Mars are beneficial for her. Also, the conjunction of her
transiting Jupiter (the first house resident benefic) with the 11th
house (the house of success) resident natal Neptune (another benefic) is
very auspicious for her.
from the planetary
transit standpoint, Secretary Clinton does have a slight edge over Mr.
trump. But in my opinion the race may turn out to be a very close one.
Despite a close race, I
wouldn’t be surprised if Secretary Clinton ekes out a narrow victory
over Mr. Trump as overall progressive charts and the transits on the election day
slightly favor Secretary Clinton.
I must add that, regardless of the election outcome, look at the
destiny of the United States, which in my opinion is very much dependent on
the transiting Uranus. And because the retrograde Uranus being temporarily
back in the sidereal Pisces and will not return to sidereal Aries (the
cardinal fire sign) until April 2017, there's a strong possibility that the election outcome
may not matter come April 2017. Without being sensationalizing and
dramatizing the future of the United States, I think that when Uranus
returns to sidereal Aries in April 2017 it will
certainly and drastically change the political landscape. As a result, it's very
likely that whoever is leading the nation at the time will face a
tremendous challenge to deal with the Uranus's force of change.
About Uranus's entry
in sidereal Aries ........
of the important planetary events of 2016 is the transit of the modern planet
Uranus from sidereal Pisces to Aries. Uranus entered sidereal Aries on June 24, and it
stayed there till September 4
before it returned to Pisces due to its retrograde motion. It will
station in Pisces until April 6, 2017 and then will return to Aries, and
will stay in Aries for the next seven years or so.
Although it's going to be in
a short while (June 24 - Sept 4) before it returns to Aries next year, Uranus being the planet
of change will certainly affect the matters related to Aries in a big way. Aries
being the fire and cardinal sign, which is very suitable for
independent, ambitious, energetic, impulsive and crazy Uranus, the changes in
world political landscape is going to be
tremendously influenced by Uranus's transit in Aries. The people who are most
affected by this transit are military personnel, business
leaders and political leaders. In scientific and
technological areas expect a lot of drastic changes and emerging new ideas will
find their way into innovations and discoveries. The
scientific and technological growth rate will rise at a very rapid pace. A
new wave of world political and corporation leaders with their new perspectives on
world order will certainly
transform our world in next 6-7 years to a new level to which we must adjust to.
individual level for those who have Aries ninefold ascendant should get ready
for a brand new cycle of change, especially a very pronounced cycle if Uranus is
a dominant planet in their birth charts. The changes that might occur would be
sudden and would deal with pretty much all aspects of life including marriage,
profession, surroundings, common perceptions and beliefs, and the way of living.
I don’t put a lot of stalk in the chart of a country since before the
inception time of the chart the land existed. Instead, I look at the
characteristics of the zodiac signs and planets associated with that land
and the planetary transits.
my opinion, UK is very closely tied with the sign Aries, a cardinal and
fiery sign ruled my mighty Mars, and where Sun gets exalted. This is
clearly reflected in the way Briton dominated the world in last few
Aries could be a spark of brilliance. Uranus being very independent and Aries
(ruled by Mars)
being extremely independent sign…this combination may produce very
positive for UK. (read above about the Uranus's transit in Aries). But
Uranus being whimsical and
as it constantly demands change (therefore
has been interesting to watch events unfolding during June 24 -
September 4 in UK. Because Uranus has returned to sidereal Pisces after
Sept 4 and will stay in Pisces till April 6, 2017 a possibility of reversal of Brexit
(which may very well be short lived) exists! Let
us see how Briton evolves during next few months. It will be a glimpse
or indication of what to come in the following 6-7 years for UK.
President Obama and his challenges......
President Obama's operating planets
(the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be
Sun. In addition, Moon will remain as an operating
planet for him till November 11.
During October, Mercury remains in sidereal Leo (the first house of his progressive
chart) till October 3, then it enters Virgo (the second house of his
progressive chart) and remains in Virgo till the October 21,
then enters Libra (the third house of his progressive chart),
and remains there till the end of the month.
Until October 3, he will continue to have difficult time in staying focused and
avoiding the wrong company of people. After October 3, the favorable second house Mercury will
provide him with the
opportunity to be successful in effectively governing the
country. However, after October 21, his
adversaries may have upper hand, and as a result, he will have
frustrating period dealing with them.
Sun is presently transiting through the
unfavorable second house of his progressive chart till October
17. And then
for the remaining
part of the month, through a favorable house (the
second house) of his progressive chart. As a result, till
October 17, from Sun's transit standpoint, he
is likely to face with disappointment, delays, deceit, mental stress
and defeat in governing the country, but later he will succeed
in dealing with his both domestic and international political
far as Moon is concerned, because it's very favorably (exalted
Moon) placed in his natal chart, despite the negative influence
of Mercury and Sun he will somehow successfully manage his
presidency and the popularity.
summing the influence of all the operating planets as explained above,
overall, the third week of October (Oct 17-21) looks to be
positive for him, and other days are likely to be difficult and
The important challenging planetary
for October include Neptune-Rahu (Oct 7 - Nov 22) opposition, Neptune-Jupiter
(Oct 18-26) quincunx, Pluto-Uranus (Oct 25 - Nov 5) ninefold quincunx, Rahu/Ketu-Saturn (Sept 17 - Oct 3)
and Uranus-Mars (Oct 27-28) squares, Uranus-Saturn ninefold square, and
Pluto-Mars (Oct 17-18) conjunction.
(Oct 7 - Nov 22) opposition may become responsible for social as well as economic
turmoil in Russia and China. Eastern European
also likely to be negatively influenced by this planetary configuration. Covert activities around the world may find a new momentum with regard to terrorism and
other international conflicts.
The Manifestation of the Neptune-Jupiter
(Oct 18-26) quincunx maybe reflected in new challenges that
the world religious leaders are likely to face. New controversial
issues will take the central stage in the religious world. Religious leaders
will be challenged as they are going to be put on the test by these issues. Those who are willing to be open minded and ready to listen and act on new
and fresh ideas without losing morality, are the ones that going to be responsible to
Pluto-Uranus (Oct 25 - Nov 5) ninefold quincunx may
bring a unique change in the way the current US administration deals with other
nations with respect to its war against terrorism agenda, and also with its domestic matters.
There might be some serious issues that the Obama administration could get
The direct squares of Saturn with the
lunar nodes (Sept 17 - Oct 3) and Uranus-Mars (Oct 27-28) square
mean barbaric activities all around
the world are likely to increase. Terrorists are likely to be successful in
creating confusion and chaos. Social turmoil in USA, Europe and Middle East is likely.
The manifestation of the Pluto-Mars
(Oct 17-18) conjunction may be reflected in escalation of terrorism and
violence in places like India-Pakistan and Israel-Palestine
area. Strong possibilities of both natural and man-made
calamities are also likely.
The important auspicious planetary configuration for this month
include, Saturn-Rahu (Oct 19-23) ninefold trine, Pluto-Saturn (Sept 26 - Oct 4)
and Neptune-Saturn (Oct 14-19) ninefold sextiles.
(Sept 26 - Oct 4) ninefold sextile may become responsible for
a better European and Russian economy. This period is also good for progress in technical
fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation.
The manifestation of the Neptune-Saturn
(Oct 14-19) ninefold sextile may be reflected in having a
positive period for China and Russia in handling their domestic
issues as well as improving the foreign relations through better
policies. The republicans in the United States will have upper hand over
The countries that are
more likely to be affected during
month are: Russia, China, the republican leaders
in the USA, Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel
regions) and India.

earthquake(s) of magnitude 7 or higher, if occur, are
likely to occur on October 1, 3, 25. Please note that these dates refer to the Universal time (GMT).

Neptune-Rahu opposition and Neptune-Ketu conjunction (October 7 - November 22)
For those, who have poor placing of Neptune-Rahu (or
Neptune Ketu) by being especially in the sixth, eighth, and the twelfth house of
their birth chart and current operating cycles are influenced by at least one of these
planets are likely to experience instability in their daily routine caused due to sudden change in
their activities and surroundings. Such experiences might turn out to be
very unfortunate and frustrating. It would certainly be wise not to commit
to anything new during this period and stay low key. (More)
