Donald Trump is a Gemini Sun with Uranus conjunct. That gives him a bit of an Aquarius element and makes him good at shocking people. It’s his Leo rising sign/Mars in Leo that makes him the showman he is. He was meant for the stage and screen. He’s smart — all Gemini’s are, but they are have a penchant for lying. However in total contradiction to that, his Moon is in Sagittarius — known for telling it like it is. And you can see that in his personality. He can get right to the heart of a matter and still not totally stick to the facts. It’s part of his “charm.” What isn’t part of his charm is the fact that his Mercury (communications) is squared by his Jupiter (relating). To quote “Astrological Insights Into Personality,” This person has difficulty talking openly… he may not listen, he may not hear what others say, he may even destroy relationships by misquoting what he thinks he heard.”
Currently Trump has Mars (changes your life in a negative way) square (bad) Mercury (communication). I think this is self-explanatory. The list of ludicrous quotes is too long, but among them he said that the Russians should hack Hillary Clinton’s email. ‘Nuff said.
Trump’s running mate is Mike Pence who is also a Gemini Sun with his Mercury and Moon there. Another guy with no shortage of intelligence. However, Pluto squares all those planets to some degree corrupting his ability to use them correctly. Pluto always adds an element of control issues.
Currently Pence’s predictive Mercury is sitting on top of his natal Uranus. Given the chance, he’ll join Trump in a staggering verbal misstep. Along with that, his predictive Venus is square his Sun. While Venus is your family and the people you love, it can also to reflect your position in the public. So his is not trending well right now. He will be no help as a his running mate.
Hillary Clinton is a Scorpio Sun with her Mercury and Venus there. Those planets are squared by Saturn which means that she can make most things serious. She isn’t kidding around. And being Scorpio, you wouldn’t want to kid around with her. Her Moon is in the compassionate sign of Pisces. And her Mars, like Donald’s, is in Leo. So she can be a showstopper, too.
Currently Hillary has predictive Sun/Mercury squaring natal Neptune (deception). And, again, you can see this in all the backlash she is experiencing. This is a difficult time for her to be running for president. A negative Mercury, which Trump, Pence and she have, is one of the more difficult aspects to overcome in an election since it’s all about communicating your message. And as you can see, they are struggling to be heard. Are Hillary’s aspects worse than Trumps? Despite the fact she has two squares, he has the harshest square of all — Mars. So while close, I would say she is in a slightly better position. The best thing she could do to shore up her weak chart is to pick a running mate with a Jupiter chart.
Tim Kaine is a Pisces with his Mercury there also. He has five focal planets (the result of two planets in opposition and a third, the focal planet, squaring both). He looks like an easy going guy. He’s not. He’s complicated. But Tim Kaine has the magical chart. He has an unusual event. His natal Jupiter has gone out-of-sign and can now make aspects. And it is aspecting his predictive Saturn. Because this is an outer planet (one that doesn’t usually go out-of-sign) he’s had it for approximately 7 years and will have it for approximately 18 more. Really the question is, will he be the next president?
So based on the above astrological charts with Clinton running ever so slightly ahead of Trump, and her running mate with a chart that’s over-the-top in astrology, I say it will be Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States. And she has Trump to thank for it. Someone with a Jupiter chart on the Republican side could have beaten her. As as you read in Part I, there were three. Ironic when you think of it.
