In just a little over two weeks, the most torturous election in modern history will be over, and the toxic stench of Donald Trump will hopefully be removed from our much-sullied political environment forever. If he does manage to create a media empire out of the ashes of his noxious campaign, let us fervently pray that it will recede into the far reaches of the fringe right, and the mainstream media and the remnants of the GOP will have finally learned the dangers of feeding the beast. One can hope.
In the US chart (using 5:13 PM birth time), we find that the progressed Moon is now in opposition to natal Uranus (8Gemini55). This aspect came into one-degree orb a few days before the final debate and will peak around November 18. It brings upsets, surprises, rebellion, and the impetus to go against accepted norms by some sector of the population. As most everyone knows by now, Donald Trump broke with the iron-clad tradition of our democratic republic during the debate by refusing to commit to accepting the outcome of the election. With transiting Jupiter in trine to US Uranus and triggering this progressed Moon/Uranus combination through October21, we saw the contrarian rebellion of this aspect beginning to unfold.
Of great significance is that this aspect will culminate on November 18, slowly receding thereafter, and will be triggered by transiting Mercury (8Sagittarius55) on November 18 and 19, as well as by the transiting Node (8Virgo55) from November 14 through November 25, and the transiting Sun on November 29 and 30 (8Sagittiarus55). This combination of planetary configurations suggests that Trump and his overheated and ramped up supporters may not go quietly into the night and may instead create turmoil, rebellion, and upset when they do not get what they want.
Corroborating these concerns is a very significant progressed aspect in the 2013 Inaugural chart. For the entire month of October, the progressed Inaugural Moon (5Cancer16) will be square to natal Uranus (5Aries16) and semisquare to natal Mars (20Aquarius13). This is a major trigger to the Inaugural Moon/Mars square which has natal Inaugural Uranus semisquare to both and at their midpoint, a very combustible combination when set off. This configuration during the month of October points to rebellion, aggression, and anger that the Obama administration will need to deal with at that time. For now, it seems likely to describe the turmoil following this historically wild and inflammatory election campaign, although other explosive and unexpected events, both foreign and domestic, cannot be ruled out.
It should also be noted that transiting Jupiter will be square to the US Sun from November 6 through November 11, which suggests a mood of increased patriotism, a celebration of American democracy, and general optimism, possibly due to the defeat of the Trumpian threat, as well as the ground-breaking election of the first woman president in the nation’s history. The biggest triggers to the more dangerous, above-mentioned aspects to Uranus in both the US chart and the Inaugural chart begin around November 14.
