US Election 2016, Trump & The Snake

2016 Presidential Election

Could ever-controversial Donald Trump be the next president of the United States? With Regulus rising and a Medusa-slaying Algol on his Midheaven, Trump has an ‘in your face’ horoscope for sure! Regulus could represent Trump falling from the great height, but he has resurrected himself many times. Trump says he wants to make America great and spangly again, but can he resurrect a whole continent?

Regulus rising gives “Great honor and wealth, but violence and trouble, benefits seldom last, favor of the great, victory over enemies and scandal.” The notorious star Algol is said to represent beheadings and assassination, but this is very rare! John F Kennedy did have Jupiter on Algol, but in his house of death and square Uranus (Shock).

With Trump, his Algol MC is squared by Mars in the first house, so he himself holds the sword. Algol then could be Trump removing the ‘heads’ from failing or corrupt companies. After all, Trump was famous for his line ‘Your fired!’ in the reality T.V show the Apprentice.

Trump comes across as fierce, but it is not his core character. The ascendant is the human vehicle designated at birth, so if you are a fighter you will get a tank! Mars with Regulus“Honor, fame, strong character public prominence, high military command.”

Trump’s Mars/Regulus image is the appropriate suit of armour to wear, when you are faced with a deadly enemy. However the ruler of both Trump’s Mars and AC is an airy Gemini Decan 3 Sun. The driver knows how to make the headlines. I called this decan ‘Media Gods & Business Tycoons’. Trump’s Sun is in glitzy Orion’s belt, conjunct Uranus trine Jupiter in Libra. It is a birthchart of innovation, daringness and ambitious vision, but can be shocking too.

Trump himself is quite Uranian, but has been stressing law and order all the way through his campaign, as well as the infamous wall. On election day, the wall of transiting Saturn slides across the gateway of the US Ascendant by less than a degree. This could mean that things stay the same of course, but Hillary Clinton is not the same as Obama. US chart ruler Jupiter square the US Sun, which is again conjunct Jupiter. Trump has natal Sun trine Jupiter. So much Jupiter.. growth, building, making America ‘great again’.. all big Jupiter claims. On election day, the US will want some Jupiter optimism, even if it seems unrealistic in the current climate.

Trump’s Transits & Progressions

Trump has been experiencing slimy Neptune trine Mercury since February 2016. The trine could mean that deceptive reporting and outright lies from the mass media could actually work in Trumps favour, but only if they are exposed. However Trump has a 12th house, watery Mercury himself which means his message can be confused or twisted. In quick-fire debates Trump has trouble getting his message across succinctly and tends to meander.

Billionaire Builder

Trump’s braggadocio temperament and emotional delivery resonates with the US’s Jupiter ruled chart and his style is more like an unrefined labourer than anything elite. Quite an interesting paradox, but then only a billionaire could fund his own campaign and therefore be outside the payroll of the globalists.

Mostly, the educated media’s attitude towards Trump is one of snobbery. In a world of racism and sexism, it’s strange that classism is ignored. Trump’s taste shows his roots, it’s a bit ‘Footballers wives’... Anyone who has spent time with builders knows that Trump’s raw manner of speaking is not that shocking for his generation or class.”

*UPDATE Oct 10th ‘Lewd Tape’. I wrote this whole post before the tape came out and then posted just hours before the story broke. What I term ‘raw manner’ is Trump’s general, public style of speaking I am referring to and NOT this private ‘male only’ conversation. Please watch The Truth About The Trump Controversy for the non-mainstream perspective.

Saturn/Moon & Yod ~ To White House?

On election day, a transiting Uranus Yod throws a quincunx down to Mercury conjunct Trump’s IC. Transits to the IC can show an uprooting or move, so this Yod might be an omen pointing the way to the White House for Trump.

Trump’s progressed Moon is on its way to conjunct natal Saturn (Exact Dec 1 2016). Astrologer Jessica Adams points out there is a transiting Saturn on its way to conjunct Trump’s natal Moon too. This is a double whammy! A Moon/Saturn emphasis is usually read as heavy responsibility and even depression. Adams says;

“There is absolutely no way this man is going to move to the White House in January 2017. Why? According to this ancient technique, Trump was born with the Moon at 21 Sagittarius in the Fourth House, which rules his home and his country. Saturn is approaching a conjunction to that Moon. Nobody is ever that unhappy living in the White House – surely?” ~ Jessica Adams

We differ here. I use whole sign houses, so instead Trump’s natal Moon is in house 5 of children and also rules hidden enemies. Yes, Trump has a lot of powerful enemies, and defending against them is actually Saturn’s job. Does a Saturn transit always point to unhappiness conjunct the Moon? In Trump’s case it could mean defending himself and withdrawal. I don’t think he is going to be starting any wars.

Trump has already said the US shouldn’t police the world for free. Other countries might value the lives of the sons (Children) of America a lot more if they actually had to pay for their ‘cannon fodder’. Even if we consider a 4th house moon, Trump might indeed not feel at home in the president’s palace. I think he’d miss his gold taps, baroque ceilings and marble everything. The White House frankly, is a bit of a downgrade.

2017 Horoscopes


  1. Thanks for sending me this Uber. I’d not heard of Joni before, makes me want to look into Vedic astrology now! I do use some traditional methods that are similar to the cycles she mentions. I’m not sure if zodiacal releasing is the same. Will have to check if the periods match. But what I like about Vedic astrology is that it has a connection with the actual sidereal map of the sky. Can’t ignore those fixed stars and constellations.

  2. Indeed! Ms Patry did a forensic analysis of both charts earlier this year – difficult of course with Hilary since she doesn’t want any to know when she was born but she (Scorpio) loves the fact they try to find out! I too am fascinated by the Vedic ability to predict but when I hear all the lingo my brain hurts!!! Methinks eventually there has to be one system but that’s in the future! Its so interesting what she says about DT being sacrificial in all this – someone had to be! The Liberal Fascists are out of control! I recently washed a brilliant slightly fictionalised Netflix series on Pablo Escobar and it struck me that there is no difference between running a drug cartel and running a benefits system… we already know how this has disempowered people in the UK but whoever drips the money gets the votes! (or says they will drip the money) then its easy to run the show! I just watched the entire last show down of DT and HC and she resolutely WON’T even respond to the EMAILS issue!
    I took a look at Chelsea C’s western chart – it might be worth putting it up here – since it also predicts some nasties for her mother in the way the Vedic chart does! Also worth a look at the chart for the inauguration – I don’t know what time it will be but Mars will still be conjunct Hilary’s stellium and on Chiron. Expect a bruising!
    Slightly aside but relevant is the brewing worry about the US interest rate – they will not raise it until after the election
    “”We are seeing a serious deterioration on a monthly basis,” said Michael Howell from CrossBorder Capital, specialists in global liquidity. The signals lead the economic cycle by six to nine months.
    “We think the US is heading for recession by the Spring of 2017. It is absolutely bonkers for the Fed to even think about raising rates right now,” he said. Hmmm.
    Going back to sidereal – keep a watch on Sirius and the US chart. Sirius s HUGE for the US – and its worth looking at the bigger meanings behind Sirius. IMO Western astrology is more to do with personal development and psychology now but sidereal is the broader world picture. Esoteric astrology will give you the bigger meanings for the entire planet!
