Apparently I did predict the election outcome
A reader reminded me about what I wrote about Donald Trump back in June:
Astrologers often cast a chart for the moment that the Sun returns to its place at birth in order to get a picture of an individual’s coming year. Trump’s Solar Return chart shows an extremely fortunate conjunction of the Sun and Venus, with Venus bestowing blessings of attraction and success. Uranus, the disrupter, sits at the Midheaven of the Return chart, threatening to create havoc and suggesting that some sort of reversal is still possible [emphasis added].
The upcoming planetary cycles affecting Trump’s chart are overwhelmingly favorable. Jupiter is the planet which open the doors of opportunity and often bestows confidence and good luck, and Trump has a number of Jupiter cycles beginning in August and extending into the election season.
The opportunities presented by Jupiter are sometimes unexpected. If as some say Trump never really wanted to be President, Jupiter could release him from the race and he could lose. And because the confidence bestowed by Jupiter can make us complacent, there is always the danger that like the hare who raced against the tortoise, the hare could become overconfident and lose the race that way [this almost happened!].
Some astrologers such as this one have attempted to predict failure for the Trump candidacy by pointing out the transit of Saturn, the planet of challenge and frustration, to Trump’s Sun and Moon. Unfortunately for Trump haters, Saturn doesn’t get involved in the astrological picture until well after the election.
This post generated some unhappy comments from readers necessitating this disclaimer which I added to the post:
Already I have received many emails begging me for more negative information on Trump’s planetary cycles. Trust me folks, I have looked for it. […]
