Astrological Insights for November 2020
As November 2020, the month of
the US presidential election, begins, Mercury stays retrograde
until November 4, the day after the US presidential election, it's
significant from the uncertainty of the US presidential election outcome
President Trump, presently Rahu is at about 27 deg and 50 min sidereal
Taurus. In his natal chart Rahu is at 27 deg 44 min Taurus, thus making a
perfect conjunction. It will stay with in a degree (very intense) conjunction
for at least until November 19. Thus, the force of the Return of Rahu
for Mr. Trump has
been in a fully active state since October 18 and will stay fully active till
November 19. And this force will certainly likely to be reflected in bringing
that final blow to his karmic connection to this (USA) country's destiny.
In addition, the opposition of the transiting Saturn to his natal Saturn
will likely to be very intensive, devastating and painful for him.
a reflection of what collectively the country (USA) as a whole is going through
at this point in time. Perhaps, it's a part of painful process of
transformation and discovery of the next phase of its evolution. If the
country's destiny is at the crossroad of "CHANGE" at
this point in history, that will certainly be reflected in presidential election
more and more likely that the
Coronavirus outbreak and its ultimate toll on Americans finally may bring
out that "CHANGE".
The details of the influence of Rahu's transit and other
transits for President Trump are provided below. Also, a detailed 2020
presidential election prediction analysis (which was posted on October 4, 2020)
is reiterated below.
About President Donald Trump and
operating Gochar planets (the planets that presently active for
him) for November continue to be Saturn, Venus and Mercury.
November the transiting retrograde Saturn will be in the sidereal Capricorn, in the eighth house of his Gochar (transit)
chart. In his
ninefold Gochar (transit) chart, Saturn will be in the 8th house until November
19 and then in the 9th house for the rest of month. The transiting Venus will be in sidereal Leo (the
4th house of his Gochar
Chart) till Nov 16 and then in the fifth house. The
Mercury will be in the fifth house in his
transit chart till November 28 and then in the 6th house.
From Dasa standpoint, Saturn, being in the eighth house of his
Gochar (transit) and in the eighth house of
his ninefold Gochar (transit) chart, continues to be unfavorable for him at least until November
19. As a result,
President Trump will continue to be self-destructive and face challenges in dealing with his friends and adversaries
alike. In addition to be
frustrated and depressed, he is likely to be in the company of wrong people.
Despite the on going Coronavirus crisis, he will
continue to misbehave by ignoring the CDC guidelines, driving his own agenda with no evidence or proof and have friction with his cabinet members, members of the Coronavirus
task force and political
adversaries. Overall chaos, fear, confusion and disappointment
will likely to dominate to describe his political experiences.
The manifestation of the
4th and the 5th house resident transiting Venus
is likely to be favorable for him from prestige and showmanship standpoint. Mercury
will be unfavorable for him as it becomes responsible for
him causing feud with women in politics.
The most serious
challenge for him continues to be, however, from the lunar node
Rahu's transit. Rahu's closest conjunction with his natal Rahu (the planet of
Karma and ) happens exactly during the first week of November. This may
prove to be disastrous for him for being deeply humiliated and from health
reflected in his natal chart, Rahu-Uranus conjunction in the 10th house is
closely tied with his destiny to the country's destiny. And the return
of Rahu progressively becoming in conjunction with the natal positions of Rahu (27 deg 44 min
Taurus--exact during the first week of November) and Uranus (24 deg
52 min Taurus--during December) will certainly likely to bring
that final blow to his karmic connection to this country's destiny.
In addition, the opposition of the transiting Saturn to his natal Venus will be intensive and painful for
him as it will be reflected in his feud with women in politics.
US Presidential Election Prediction
Based on information
obtained from Astro-data Bank (Astro.Com) with Rodden rating AA,
President Trump's birth details
Date: June 14, 1946
Time: 10:54 AM (EDT)
Place: Jamaica, New York (40N41, 73W48)
Vice President Joe Biden, based on information obtained from Astro-data
Bank (Astro.com) with Rodden rating A (data source from memory), Mr.
Biden's birth details are:
November 20, 1942
8:30 AM (Wartime 4 hr W))
Birth Place: Scranton,
PA (41N25, 75W40)
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
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 and making him the leader of the USA since Uranus very closely matches the characteristics of
interesting to note the presence of Rahu-Uranus conjunction in President Bill
Clinton, 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
Donald Trump became the President of the USA in 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 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 President 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 President 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.
vice president Joe Biden was born
under Scorpio ascendant (rising sign). Scorpio is a fixed (passionate,
very steady and laser focused) and
water (emotional, compassionate and fruitful) sign ruled by fiery Mars.
Typically Scorpio is least understood sign because it represents a
combination of two opposite elements (water and fire of fiery
Mars). The most notable Scorpion born leaders, in the beginning of
their career are easily misunderstood, but once understood they become
the role model of the societies. In addition, he was fittingly
born under "Ashwini" Nakshatra. The symbols for this
Nakshatra are: a head of horse, physical power and
first house ruler, Libra Mars, resides in the 11th house making him a
successful person (politician) who is possessive, hardworking, fortunate and blessed
with ample opportunities. The tenth house ruler, Scorpio Sun is in
close conjunction (one degree) with Scorpio Venus (the ruler of the 7th
(masses) and the 12th (public service) houses) occupying the 12th house
confirms that this person's destiny belongs in serving public (an
important 12th house characteristics). Notice that both the Sun
and Venus fall in Scorpio ruled by Mars (a political leader) confirms
the his profession deals with power, leadership and public (12th
addition, the 10th house resident Virgo Neptune inspires him to serve
people with compassion and empathy, a unique serving style.
Furthermore, the political planet Saturn resides in the 7th house (ruled
by Venus) is well connected to the 10th house. And the 6th house
resident Taurus Uranus provides an extraordinary strength and support
for the 10th house activities.
ninth house ruler, Aries Moon occupying the 5th house (creativity,
children, love for art) provides him with intelligence, patience,
stamina to become a well know politician. It also indicates his
artistic interests and love for his children and family.
President Joe Biden's sidereal natal chart
Vice president's natal chart all the required qualities to become a
successful political leader, it doesn't quite confirm that he could
potentially become the leader of the world when his natal chart is compared
against the past presidents of the United States. However, this
analysis is not complete until we look at his ninefold (Navamansa)
natal chart. Let us look at his ninefold natal chart.
President Joe Biden's Ninefold
As shown in his ninefold natal chart, one can not help
but notice three distinct group of planets:
Mars, Uranus and Neptune in the 6th house
The north lunar node, Rahu, Saturn, Moon and Mercury in
the 9th house
Venus and Sun in the 11th house
Note that the 6th house (being in trine with 10th house)
fully supports the 10th house activities. Since the political planets
Mars and Uranus are well connected with the 10th house in his natal chart,
the ninefold chart confirms the full power of Mars and Uranus required to
become a world leader. In addition, Neptune's strength in the 10th
house in his natal chart is enhanced with Neptune occupying the 6th house of
his ninefold natal chart.
In the next group of planets, Moon has the excellent
placement in the 9th house confirming the strength of Moon from luck and
success standpoint, and also the compassionate side of his character.
The power of the political planet Saturn also gets magnified due to its
excellent placement in the 9th house of the ninefold chart. While Rahu
doesn't directly relates to the 10th house, being the planet of karmic force
also gets exemplified by occupying the favorable houses in both the natal
and ninefold charts. Similarly Mercury acquires favorable placements in the
ninefold natal chart.
The last group, which is the most important group is that
of Venus and Sun. Both have the excellent placement in the 11th house
(the house of success) confirming the political success as they directly
deal with the 10th house of his natal chart.
Thus the ninefold natal chart analysis, does confirm the
fact that Vice president has a potential for becoming the world leader.
Day Analysis for President Trump
election day evening (November 3, 8 PM ET), the planets influencing Mr. Trump as
operating planets (as
highlighted in bold in his Gochar (transit) chart below for that day) are Venus,
Saturn and Mercury. In president Trumps's 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. And
in his natal chart Gemini Mercury resides in the 11th house too.
evening of election day, Venus will be (as shown below) in the fourth house in
Mr. Trump's Gochar (transit) chart. Please note that the Roman numerals in
the chart correspond to their respective houses. While the fourth house Venus in his
Gochar chart is favorable for him, the twelfth house Venus in the ninefold
Gochar chart (not shown here) is not favorable. Saturn
in the eighth house of his Gochar chart (shown below) and also in the
eighth house of his ninefold Gochar chart (not shown here) is certainly
very challenging for him. Similarly Mercury in the 5th house of his
Gochar chart is unfavorable as it indicates the fear of the election
outcome, and being stationary the outcome of the election may get
prolonged at least until November 11 when Mercury acquires its average
speed of one longitudinal geocentric degree.
(Transit) Chart of President
the Election Day
(November 3, 2020, 8 PM ET)
one considers the relationship between the transiting planets and the
natal planets, the election day also happens to be the time of the
lunar nodes return (which happens once every 18 1/2 years on average),
as the transiting Rahu conjucts natal Rahu (and Ketu conjuncts natal
Ketu). In addition since in his natal chart Rahu-Sun and Rahu-Uranus
all in conjunction with in less than three degrees, it's going to be a
very historic night not only for him but for the country as
well. Because as reflected in his natal chart Rahu-Uranus
conjunction in the 10th house very closely ties his destiny with the
destiny of the USA. Thus, the return of Rahu will certainly likely to
bring the final blow to his karmic connection to this country's
destiny. Should he survive and win the election, it would certainly be
due the Rahu-Uranus conjunction, as it might mean the country has not
yet finished working out its Karma with Trump as president.
Day Analysis for Vice President Joe Biden
vice president Biden, the operating planets for the election night are:
Jupiter, Mercury, Mars and Ketu. In his natal chart, Jupiter being
the ruler of the second and fifth house occupies the 8th house. Since
the first, seventh and tenth houses generally deals with politics as
profession, Jupiter doesn't quite as significant here except for his family
well being. Mars in his natal chart, being the ruler of the first house
is certainly significant for the professional success standpoint.
However, Mars being retrograde the election outcome may get prolonged or
uncertain till Mars becomes direct around November 14. The lunar nodes, Rahu and
Ketu, lie along the favorable 9th-3rd house
axes, and are considered positive from the luck standpoint. Therefore,
Ketu is favorable for him. Mercury being the ruler of 8th and the 11th
houses residing in the 12th house is not very important from the 10th
house (the house of profession) matters.
noticed in his natal chart, among Jupiter, Mercury, Mars and Ketu. Mars
is the most significant planet followed by Ketu and then distant third
is Mercury. They
are shown in bold in the Gochar chart below. On
the election day, Mars looks to be favorably placed in the sixth house
of his Gochar (transit) chart, Ketu with neutral placement. While
Jupiter is favorably and Mercury unfavorably placed in his Gochar
(transit) chart, being insignificant are not considered here.
(Transit) Chart of Joe Biden for
the Election Day
(November 3, 2020, 8 PM ET)
relationship between the transiting planets and the natal planets is
considered, the transiting Mars quincunxes the natal Mars which is not
so favorable. Among the auspicious transiting planets (for
his natal chart his auspicious planets are Sun and Moon) Sun being in
the first house of his Gochar (transit) is not so favorable from health
standpoint but favorable from professional success standpoint. Moon is
always favorable for him being the planet of luck and blessings.
The natal charts of
both candidates are similar in strength. Both are dominated by powerful
nodes, for Trump in the cardinal houses and for Biden along the 3rd-9th
house axis. 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, Vice president Biden draws his strength
from well placed Mars in the 11th house, Uranus in the sixth house, Sun
and Venus in the 12th house and Saturn in the 7th house. Especially in his
corresponding ninefold (Navamansa) natal chart the placement of these
planets is striking.
compared their Gochar charts for the election night, Vice president
appears to have a slight edge
over Mr. Trump due to the favorable placement of his operating planet
Now let us compare each
candidate’s planetary transits with respect to their natal charts for
the election day.
the election day, as mentioned earlier, the transiting Rahu
conjuncts his natal Rahu (Rahu return), and the natal Sun and Uranus
with in three degrees. Although Rahu is not an operating planet for him,
because in his natal chart,
Rahu conjuncts Uranus, it's like his "Karma" conjuncts
nation's destiny for better or worse. In addition, the transiting Saturn
exactly opposes his natal Venus indicating his issues with females in
politics; Rahu opposes his natal Moon (mind) causing him to be in a
disturbing mood and therefore, may behave irrationally.
vice president Joe Biden, the transiting retrograde Mars quincunxes his
natal Mars. It's not favorable for him, and therefore, if the election
outcome is going to be decided on the election night, it's not a
promising night for him. However, if the final outcome is delayed,
it certainly becomes promising for him for winning the election
my opinion, the race is going to be close and most likely (based on the
planetary configuration of the transiting planets on the election night)
the outcome will not be realized on that night but will be postponed for
at least a week or more till the Mercury acquires its average speed (Nov
11) and Mars become direct (Nov 14).
Despite a close race, I
wouldn’t be surprised if Joe Biden ekes out a narrow victory if
not a convincing one over Mr. Trump as overall Gochar (transit) charts and the transits on the election day
slightly favor Joe
Biden. However, should president Trump survive and win the election,
a very remote possibility, it would certainly
due the Rahu-Uranus conjunction, as it might mean the country has not
yet finished working out its Karma with Trump as president.

the planetary influence standpoint, one of the major events of 2020 is the
retrograde Mars which on average occurs once every two years. On
September 10, Mars became retrograde in the sidereal zodiac sign Aries. With
its retrograde motion it returned to the sidereal Pisces on October 4.
While in Pisces Mars becomes direct on November 14, and then with its direct
motion reenters Aries on December 24, 2020.
Astrologically speaking, what does the retrograde Mars mean? And what can we
expect from the retrograde Mars?
general, when a planet turns retrograde, the positive energy offered by that
planet is expected to slowly diminish. In case of Mars, being a planet
of total independence, amazing energy, high ego, and less maturity usually
make things worse with incredible speed.

challenging period out may be way to go. If you must take a risk, be on
guard. In particular, politicians, fire fighters, surgeons, metallurgical,

who work in military, leaders, managers are likely to be more affected than

nations. Destruction of wealth due to natural calamities (fires,
flooding, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc.) or man made accidents (social and/or
political unrest) are also very likely. Other possibilities include a sudden
rise in terrorist activities, escalation in a warlike climate between
Israelis and Palestinians, and of course increased covert activities among
nations. Since the US presidential election is during the first week of

Energies for Individuals
Pluto-Rahu quincunx (Nov 1-6)
Unless these planets are favorably placed in your birth chart, such
between Pluto and any one of the lunar nodes, in general, means drastic unwanted changes
(transformations) pertaining to aspects of your life described by the houses
they belong to. Usually such transformations are very painful
if lunar node Rahu (or Ketu), and/or Pluto is affecting your life via your
Gochar (transit) chart. In my opinion, best way to deal with this situation is
to (which is not easy to do) accept the inevitable change, and move on with
your life. There's no point in brooding over it, and not letting your past go.
Pluto-Jupiter conjunction (Nov
In your birth chart if Jupiter and Pluto are either in
conjunction or opposition, and if either of these planets is currently influencing your
life via your Gochar (transit) chart, then you are perhaps standing on the thresh-hold of a new era

occupy in your birth chart, you are going to have a totally new and a very
different experience in that particular field. Be ready to accept this new
