My friend Anton D’Abreu from Cycles of History has very kindly sent this chart analysis of transits to the chart of the United States on the day after the election.
The Sibly chart (Koch) is used. Only the USA chart is analysed. All dates 2016 unless specified otherwise. Transiting houses are marked 1H while natal houses are marked 1st H. Rounded-up transit orbs are for November 9, 4.30 am)
1) Pluto (2H) opposes the US Sun (7th H). This is one of the most dramatic transits in the USA’s 240 year history. It suggests the transformation or destruction of the way American values are perceived by the outside world (2 degrees)
2) Pluto (2H) squares the USA Saturn (10th H) This much tighter transit suggests the blocking of US goals and national mission by a conflict of values (0.36 degrees)
3) Neptune (3H) square the USA Uranus (6th H). This suggests strongly the disillusion felt in many cities concerning employment and the loss of production especially in sectors like heavy manufacturing (0.21 degrees) It also stationed retro exactly square the USA ASC/
4) Uranus (4H) square the USA Mars (7th H) EXACT at 10 minutes during the poll. This captures the rage in the Trump camp at the Washington establishment and the perceived manner in which the concerns of ordinary non-wealthy families and communities are ignored. More importantly it suggests that the elections may lead to America disengaging from its role in world affairs — a role that has been a principle in US foreign policy since 1944.
5) Uranus (4H) square the USA Mercury. Just look at the vitriolic election campaign to see outspoken attacks on both sides against the candidates or their party faithful. The most unusual and outspoken have been from the Trump camp and include its mantras: ‘lock her up’, ‘drain the swamp’ and ‘build the wall’ (2 degrees).
6) Saturn conjunct the Ascendant. This suggests difficulties and restrictions in governing the country – especially evident in the stalemating of many of Obama’s policies resulting from a Republican gridlock in Congress. Saturn’s aspect also implies a need for the country to face up to reality – something both candidates in different ways accuse their opponent of not doing. (3 degrees)
7) Jupiter (10H) conjuncts Saturn (10th H) suggests explosive issues confront the USA’s political institutions. A prime example is Trump’s claim that the election is rigged and that he may not respect the result. These statements are explosive and almost unprecedented in a country that prides itself on being the world’s pre-eminent democracy. (2 degrees)
The inner transits are not so clear but should give a more defined pointer to the election outcome albeit open to many more interpretations.
8) Mars (2H) conjuncts Pluto (2nd H) This is fury and anger about differences in national values. But by the day after election this transit has finished and Mars begins to conjunct the South Node. Read this whichever way you want – it either means Anger must be addressed so it disappears (Clinton wins) or Anger is directed at the new direction the country will take (Trump wins) (2.30 degrees)
9) Mars (2H) trines the MC. This surely implies a drive to change the direction the country is heading (1 degree)
10) Venus (1H) square the Moon (3rd H). American society is getting pulled apart in highly personal and emotional ways. Often the emotions are deeply held though the people concerned may find it difficult to truthfully articulate them (half a degree)
11) Venus square Neptune (9th H). In many quarters popular feeling is at odds with the government’s idealistic or relativist language. There is growing disillusion in the wake of Iraq, Afghanistan. Being the world’s saviour or hero is definitely out of fashion. Trump’s apparent disparagement of Mexicans and Muslims’s is another clear example. But these are not core issues at the voting booth – this transit is over.
12) Mercury (12H) square the Moon (3rd H) Popular feeling is at odds with much of the Media. Highly emotional speeches and hustings crowd reactions. (2 degrees)
13) Mercury (12 H) trine Mercury (8th ) There has probably never been an election which will be so much discussed by US citizens, by the US media and by the world media. (half a degree)
14) Sun (11H) conj 12th H cusp The focus on election fever will give way to reflection and perhaps something hidden will emerge to challenge the result.
15) The Moon conjuncts the USA’s Aquarius Moon as the polls open on November 8. By dawn in New York the Moon will have moved into the sign of Pisces. At 8.36 am on November 9 in New York the Moon will square the USA’s Uranus. There will be an unexpected outburst of emotions. At 10.55 am the Moon will oppose the North Node and at 2.36 pm square the Ascendant then at 6.08 pm square Mars.
Readers should be able to make their own minds about what the above chart transits imply as to the USA election winner. But the following points may be worth noting.
A) Pluto stationed Retro at 17.29 Capricorn within 3 degrees of opposing the USA Sun and squaring its Saturn. A double outer transit as close as that is highly likely to manifest.
B) Saturn hits 3 angle midpoints – it conjuncts the Moon/MC (1 degree) squares Mars/ASC 1 degree) and trines Venus/MC (one and a half degrees) which may suggest a Saturnian outcome.
C) Venus (the USA chart’s MC ruler) closely squares the Neptune/MC midpoint (0.06) square the Sun/ASC and trines Mercury/MC (both one degree)
Most importantly of all, as with the United Kingdom’s Brexit vote, the Trump upheaval (and conceivably win) is evidence of the explosive challenge the Uranus/Pluto cycle square from 2009 to 2020 is presenting the major ideology of our age – Postmodernism. Postmodernism and its sister relativism, along with the establishment literati who are its voice is being violently opposed by ‘ordinary’ people. Postmodernism will have to adapt to survive – and it will survive. Whether Trump wins this election or not the transits suggest a major revolution in American government and its role in the world at large.
