Post-Election Comment

Date posted:  November 9, 2016

In light of Trump’s presidential election victory, it seems that (as mentioned in election prediction analysis)  the powerful placement of Rahu and Uranus in the tenth house of the Trump’s natal chart overcame all the odds (establishments, Clinton-machine, Obama’s strong support for Mrs. Clinton, prominent celebrities, etc.,) and gave Trump the victory confirming, for better or worse, the powerful and total alignment of his Karmawith the USA’s destiny. 

Predictions for November 2016

Date posted: October 31, 2016

About Neptune-Ketu (the South Lunar Node) conjunction and the presidential election uncertainty! …………..

Neptune, the planet of deception, if while transiting conjuncts either of the transiting lunar nodes and if the lunar nodes happen to be prominent planets in the natal chart of an individual, then the individual faces tremendous amount of uncertainty in navigating through his or her life during that period.  This is exactly what’s happening to both of the presidential nominees (Clinton and Trump) since the conjunction between the Neptune and Ketu (the south lunar node) within a longitudinal degree of each other started forming about 21 days ago, and it will continue through for another 13 days. On October 28, it was the perfect conjunction when the FBI dropped the bombshell about the discovery of Clinton emails on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s electronic devices. And about two week prior to it, the bombshell video of bragging of Mr. Trump about the unwanted sexual advances towards women without their consent appeared.

As outlined in detail about US 2016 Presidential Election prediction  and was posted on September 30, the uncertainty certainly continues.  The interesting thing about it is both of these candidates are vulnerable due to the prominent positions of the lunar nodes in their natal charts. But considering the planetary transits on the election day, between Mr. Trump and Secretary Clinton, the planets slightly favor Mrs. Clinton, and therefore, (as I already noted in my prediction analysis) Secretary Clinton will likely to eek out a narrow victory over Mr. Trump.

However, I must add that, regardless of the election outcome, looking at the destiny of the United States, which, in my opinion, is very much dependent on the transiting Uranus, the picture of future of the USA is very different. 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 this election outcome may not matter at all 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 the person who will be the leading the world’s powerful nation then as a president will be a different one.

About Uranus’s entry in sidereal Aries ……..

One 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 was in Aries for a short while (June 24 – Sept 4) before it returns to Aries again 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 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. 

On 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.

About Brexit..

Personally, 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. 

In 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 centuries.  

Uranus in 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 unsteady) it 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.

About President Obama and his challenges……

President Obama’s operating planets (the planets that presently influence him most) continue to be Mercury and  Sun.  In addition, Moon will remain as an operating planet for him till November 11.  After November 11, Moon will be replaced with Ketu as the operating planet.

During November, Mercury remains in sidereal Libra (the third house of his progressive chart) till November 9, it enters Scorpio (the fourth house of his progressive chart) and remains in Scorpio till the November 28, then it enters Sagittarius  (the fifth house of his progressive chart), and remains there till the end of the month. 

Until November 9, he will continue to have difficult time in dealing with his adversaries people.  After November 9, the favorable fourth house Mercury he will successfully manage his job of governing the country. However, after November 28, he may have to deal with a frustrating period that involves international issues.

Sun is presently transiting through the favorable third house of his progressive chart till November 16.  And then for the remaining part of the month, through an unfavorable fourth house of his progressive chart.  As a result, till November 16, from Sun’s transit standpoint, he is likely to continue his successful dealing with both the domestic and international political challenges, but later (after November 16) he may have to face with disappointment, delays and mental stress in governing the country.

As 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, until November 11, he will successfully manage his presidency and the popularity.

Lastly Ketu, being in the 7th house of both of his progressive and ninefold progressive charts, after November 11, his character or his being will be tested through the unique challenges that deal with morality and general well being of American people.  And he is likely to do very well in that test.

Thus, summing the influence of all the operating planets as explained above, overall, the entire month (except perhaps last week of the month) looks to be positive for him.

Global Predictions……

The important challenging planetary configurations for November include Neptune-Rahu (Oct 7 – Nov 22) opposition, Pluto-Uranus (Oct 25 – Nov 5) ninefold quincunx, Pluto-Jupiter (Nov 18-30) square and Pluto-Saturn (Nov 7-14) ninefold square.

The Neptune-Rahu (Oct 7 – Nov 22) opposition may become responsible for social as well as economic turmoil in Russia and China. Eastern European countries are also likely to be negatively influenced by this planetary configuration.  Covert activities around the world will find a new momentum with regard to terrorism and other international conflicts, such as alleged email hacking by Russia and/or China.

The Pluto-Uranus (Oct 25 – Nov 5) ninefold quincunx has been bringing 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. However, there might be some serious issues that the Obama administration could get tangled with.

The manifestation of the direct square of Jupiter with Pluto (Nov 18-30) maybe reflected in some drastic changes in religious and academic world since this square will create religious challenges as the planet Pluto with its tremendous energy has a power of irreversibly transforming the field of religion and academics to a new level or setting with a new set of norms. Initial reaction to the change might appear to be a bit confusing and perhaps chaotic. 

The Pluto-Saturn (Nov 7-14) ninefold square may become responsible for political or social upheaval in Russia and to some extent in China.

The important auspicious planetary configuration for November include, Pluto-Rahu (Nov 9-16) ninefold sextile and Pluto-Neptune (Nov 17 – Dec 17) ninefold trine.

The Pluto-Rahu (Nov 9-16) ninefold sextile may become responsible for progress in technical fields (new innovations and discoveries) and religious reconciliation. Also, this is a good period for economy.

The manifestation of the Pluto-Neptune (Nov 17 – Dec 17) ninefold trine may be reflected in either bringing terrorism under control or even wiping out major terrorist cells through covert operation. In addition, this ninefold trine is good for Russia and to some extent for China.Also, on technological front, expect some positive breakthroughs in medical, high technology and biotechnology fields. 

The countries that are more likely to be affected during this month are:  Russia, China, USA, Middle East (Syria, Iran, Iraq, Pakistan and Afghanistan and Palestine-Israel regions). 

About USA…..

The Pluto-Uranus ninefold quincunx and Jupiter-Pluto square may become responsible for chaotic political and social environment with the underlying current of deeply divided republic.  There is a possibility of a transformation of the current chaotic situation with creative dialogues between these two factions to a level where understanding the bigger picture of where the republic will be headed if we continue the path we are on.  Although it’s an arduous path that might take several years, the seeding of the process of of transformation may take place during this period.
