THE RACE TO THE OVAL OFFICE 2016

THE RACE TO THE OVAL OFFICE 2016


Is it curtains for Donald Trump? Has he shot himself in the foot? A self goal ? It is more than
likely, politically and astrologically.

Politically he has positioned himself as an
Independent if denied the nomination. That
would only deny the Republicans the victory
something Ross Perot ensured in 1992, no
matter how well meaning he may have been.



Then there is transit Saturn conjunct Janma Rasi opposite Sun and moving forward. Dasa wise a Dasa Chidra. The Dasa has moved way ahead.

These are superficial negatives but negatives
nonetheless.

A deeper study is necessary.

The electorate is suffering from Democratic
fatigue. Saturn is in a Republican square.
Eisenhower in 1956.

It could be a Republican but whom? When the
race narrows and both President and Vice
Presidential nominees are declared it should
be relatively much simpler to point the
needle decisively.

Scorpio is traditionally Republican territory.
1924 - 1928 - Calvin Coolidge
1956 - 1960 - Eisenhower
1984- 1988 - Reagan


1956 also had Jupiter in Leo - it was a see saw year but Eisenhower won handsomely.

Qq
Coolidge was followed by Hoover in 1928
Reagan was followed by George Bush Sr. in 1988.

Nixon lost to Kennedy in 1960 but Eisenhower had already served two terms so it
could be partly termed as anti-incumbency.

Capricorn is a Democratic square. Roosevelt, Kennedy - Johnson and Clinton


The movement of Jupiter is interesting when Ross Perot cleaved the vote. Jupiter 11
Virgo

In Nov 2016 Jupiter will be in Virgo 17/18. Trump could prove troublesome.
The next year could be a see saw one but Saturn ( Republican ) should win.

More probing is required

What I am placing here are facts and figures. Astrology is in fact rooted in facts , the planetary
movements which are mathematically calculated and planetary natures and proclivities
which are universally accepted and have stood the test of time . There can be a difference in the method of calculation and yawning gaps in theories, but an unbiased mind can see an underlying symmetry and that is what ultimately matters.

What we have to do is to juggle the facts
apply our judgement and come to a conclusion. Of course the result will depend
on our knowledge, experience and above all our own luck at that particular point of time!

I am placing here two horoscopes which have a similar career trajectory and because they have been occupants of the Oval Office the facts placed before you has an important bearing on the future.

In the United States the two parties, the Democratic Party and the Republican Party
have their own strengths and weaknesses. A scientific and time tested electoral process
within each party throws up the best candidate for the each party and then these two
candidates enter the fray and face each other for the top post, with the full might of their party machinery and party loyalists behind them.

The electorate of course decides and their decision is usually
in the best interests of the country as they ultimately decide as to when the trends have
veered too much to the left or the right and a course correction is required. Here the wise men
in each party and the intuitive understanding of the common voter play an important part in the final decision. This is not a foolproof model but is certainly one of the best in the world.


These two horoscope details are of Republicans. No party has a monopoly on integrity and talent and if the Democratic Party has thrown up candidates like Roosevelt, Truman or Kennedy the Republicans have thrown up candidates like Eisenhower, Reagan (who admired
Roosevelt), and George Bush Sr. The best Presidents have been in fact those who have
been able to move closer to the political centre, and the ability to do so is in fact directly
linked to the virtue and wisdom in each candidate.

The facts mentioned below is connected to planetary periods.

Richard Nixon was born on 9th January 1913 at 21.35 at Yorba Linda California. PST
h8W Quoted BC/BR Rodden Rating AA .

Watergate
Mercury/Kethu

Resigns
Mercury/Venus August 8th 1974.

The Republicans Party under Reagan come back to power -
Mercury/Rahu November 1980

Reagan sworn in.
Mercury/Rahu January 1981.
The Administration has problems due
to a global financial crises.

(Mercury Rahu from May 1980 to Nov 1982)


The Republican Party under Reagan
gets a boost after the economy picks
up in the late 1982.
Mercury Jupt is from November 1982

( Mercury/Jupiter is from November 1982 to February 1985.)

George W Bush was born on 6th July 1946 at 7.26 am at New Haven Connecticut 41N18
72W56 EDT h4w (daylight saving time). Quoted BCBR Rating AA


Second Term expires
Mercury/Kethu November 2008

Mercury/Rahu from Nov 2015 to June 2018.

Mercury/Jupiter from June 2018 to Sept 2020.

The conclusion one can draw is that a Republican candidate will be sworn in on January 2017
and will have problems till roughly June 2018 after which the economy should pick up
dramatically. George W Bush will have a major change
in fortunes for the better after this period.

In mid August 2018 Jupiter will be entering Scorpio which is a Republican Slot or Square.
Scorpio and Sagittarius are Republican slots for Jupiter.

Jupiter in Scorpio and Sagittarius. (Sidereal)
----------------------------------
1924-1925 - Prosperity under Coolidge.
1982 end to 1984 - Prosperity under Reagan.
1971- 1972 - Nixon's Foreign Policy triumphs and re-election by a landslide.

In Nov 1994-1996 - Jupiter was in Scorpio and Sagittarius but Saturn was in a Democratic slot which held sway, yet Clinton got a shock in the mid-term election.


Similarly in 1948. though Jupiter was in a Republican slot, Saturn was in a Democratic slot, which held sway. It was yet a close call for Truman.

Similarly in 2007/8 though George W Bush was in power Jupiter was in Scorpio and Sagittarius, Saturn was in a Democratic slot and he had to suffer on account of loose monetary policies.

-------------------------------------------------------------

Similarly Jupiter will be in Virgo in Nov 2016.
It was in Virgo in Nov 1980 when Reagan was elected.

In 1992 it was in Virgo but Saturn was in Capricorn a very very powerful Democratic slot. So a
third party (Perot) cut into the vote.

---------------------------------------------------------------

The trends favour the Republicans, by a very wide margin.

Now all this is in the realm of speculation.

Jeb Bush who was the favourite is getting mauled in the polls. Donald Trump whom the Republican establishment views with some trepidation
is scoring in the polls. Jeff Greenfield a brilliant political analyst who had put the chances
of a Trump victory as remote a few months ago now talks of a Jesse Ventura type of situation.
Jesse Ventura of course was a professional wrestler (WWE Hall of Fame) and actor
who went on to become the Governor of Minnesota.

Of course what the Republican establishment would like is to prise out Trump (who moves
from being a Democrat to a Republican to an Independent with relative ease) without any collateral damage. Of course that would take something like a bomb disposal squad to take
this Bull out of the China shop.

What works in Trump's favour is that he is speaking home truths which finds resonance
with a section of the electorate who are fed up with platitudes. What works against him is that
it borders on rabble rousing.

British bookmakers still put Bush as the favourite, but Trump is gaining ground.

What is working against Bush is that fact that he will be the third Bush to enter the White House, and probably his marriage to a woman who was a Mexican national by birth.

Bush (11th February 1953 at 20.50 Midland Texas 32N00 102W05 CST h6W) is running Saturn/Venus and both planets are exalted in his chart. Saturn/Venus is known for springing surprises. Jupiter in 2016 will be in Virgo aspecting his natal Venus
exalted in Pisces. It will be in the ninth from his natal Sun and Moon. It will be aspecting his
seventh house (wife). and his AD lord. It will be in the third house of his brother who has
Jupiter and Moon in the third house ( brother). It will be in the position in Nov 1980 when his
father was elected Vice President.

Clinton also had Virgo rising with Venus and Mars in the Lagna aspecting the seventh. He was elected in 1992 when transit Jupiter was in his Virgo Lagna.

The debates in mid September could be crucial. Moon will be in Libra on that day.

On September 23rd 1952 Richard Nixon gave a speech at 6.30 pm at El Capitan theatre in Los
Angeles which was known as the Fund speech or the Checkers speech which pulled the
Republicans out of a tricky situation on the eve of the elections. Nixon was on a ropes
and his future was bleak. The speech was heard by 60 million Americans and related to
allegations of misappropriation of campaign funds by him. The viewers on hearing his explanation gave him a resounding clean chit and a huge majority of millions of telegrams
and phone calls sent to the RNC were in his favour. The speech not only pulled him out of
a corner but added momentum in his favour. The Moon had just moved out of Libra into Scorpio on that day.

Nixon like Jeb Bush had Moon in Capricorn. He was elected President in November 1968 when Jupiter was in Virgo.

Trump has the Moon in Scorpio (Jyesta) and Sun in Taurus in the tenth house. Saturn is transiting
Scorpio aspecting key areas in his chart.

As for Tropical Astrology Trump has his Moon in Sagittarius and Sun in Gemini and Saturn moves into Sagittarius in mid September.

Is this fusion music playing the same tune?
.

As said all this in the realm of speculation.

To get a clear idea of where Donald Trump is headed, one should study the horoscope of Howard Hughes (though by no stretch of imagination can you compare the two). By his 70th year it was the end of the road.

Jeb Bush shares a birthday with Thomas Alva Edison. (February 11)
Abraham Lincoln and Ronald Reagan were also born in February. February born natives are out of box thinkers, visionary and inventive. FDR also qualifies for this and had his Sun in Capricorn like Ronald Reagan and Jeb.

For Reagan the birth time is conflicting. But he was in his Saturn MD when he was
elected and Sat/Ven comes tantalizingly close.

In fact most of the birth times don't explain Ronald Reagan (Feb 6th 1911 Tampico Ill 41N38 89W47 CST 6W). . If the birth time is pushed to 7.00 am or thereabout, Sun would be rising with Jupt in the tenth, Sat and Moon in in the fourth and Sat/Venus would fall in 1980 Nov.

That would explain his failed attempt to get a nomination in 1976, as well as the dull phase
from the end of his tenure as the Governor of California till he was elected in 1980.

Sat MD and Venus AD is a period which is very unpredictable. It can raise you to the skies
or pull you down from the heights.

A thumb rule of Saturn/Venus is that if the period from the start of Sat/Sat to the start of Sat/Venus was indifferent or bad Sat/Venus is very likely be good and vice versa.

A good case in point is that of the poet John Milton who suffered due to his proximity to Cromwell (who committed regicide by killing Charles I) in his Saturn Dasa (the start of which coincided with the Restoration and the return of Charles II) and went through a lot problems including witnessing the Great Fire and Great Plague in London before writing his magnum opus 'Paradise Lost' in Sat/Venus.

Four of Trump's businesses have declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy of which two took place
with Jupiter in Virgo.

Trump Plaza Hotel November 2nd 1992- Jupiter 10 degrees Virgo
Trump Hotel and Casino Resorts October 21 2004 - Jupiter 11 degrees Virgo.

Therefore Jupiter's 11th house transit will not give succour in his Sade Sati period.

Rahu/Mars Jupt/Jupt, Dasa sandhi period is very bad for this nakshatra. This has been
observed in an overwhelming number of cases.


His cycle fits in more with the Democrats.

In 1987 when the 'Art of Deal' was published the Republicans were having problems
with the economy and the Iran Contra case.

The period from 1988 - 1990 was very bad for Trump. This coincides with Saturn's
transit of Sagittarius. It led to the first of two Chapter 11 bankruptcies in 1991 and 1992.

A financial resurgence took place after this.

The trend is opposite with the Bush family.

Saturn's move into Sagittarius and Jupiters move into Scorpio in 2018 will therefore
prove adverse. It leads to a major mismatch.

.

The overall trends look bleak.

Donald Trump has filed for corporate bankruptcy four times. All these bankruptcies were related to over leveraged casino and hotel properties.



Bankruptcy No. 2 Trump Plaza Hotel - November 1992.

Trump bought Plaza Hotel which overlooks the Central Park in 1988 for approximately $ 390 million. The price tag represented a 1500 per cent increase from what it was when purchased by the Westin Hotel company 13 years earlier for $ 25 million.

By 1992 the hotels cash flow were insufficient to cover its interest on some $ 550 million in
debt related to purchase and renovations. Trump filed for bankruptcy in November 1992.
and five weeks later the judge approved a plan that called upon Trump to give up 49 %
of his ownership in exchange for forgiveness of overdue interest payments. and a more
lenient repayment plan. The creditors included Citicorp and Industrial Bank of Japan.
As a part of the restructuring plan Trump stayed on as CEO but was not paid a salary and
was denied a role in the day to day operations of the company. Three years after filing for
bankruptcy Trump sold the Plaza for $ 325 million to a group that included a Singapore
businessman Saudi Prince Alawaheed Bin Talal.

Trump remained a minority partner in the hotel but did not get anything from the sale. The proceeds from the went to reducing the debt from $300 million to $25 million, which was converted to equity.

In 2012 the Indian Sahara Group paid $ 570 million for a 75% stake in the hotel.

This is considered one of the most substantial blemishes in Trumps investment record. He lost control of the company and ultimately received very little for his equity stake.


Bankruptcy No. 3 Trump Hotel and Casino Resorts. October 2004

With an interest rate of 15% on some $ 1.8 billion in debt - equating to $ 270 million in annual interest payments - the company was struggling to stay
afloat. The stock which was trading at $ 2/- in August 2004 had fallen to 50 cents after announcing the bankruptcy filing. Bond holders agreed to forgive $ 500 million in debt
in exchange for 20 percent of the companies equity reducing Trumps ownership stake from
47% to 27% The creditors also agreed to interest rates to 8%. TCHR was also able to tap into
5 $500 million credit line from Morgan Stanley at 4%.

TCHR emerged from bankruptcy as Trump Entertainment Resorts.

Though the Trump Entertainment Resorts emerged from bankruptcy in 2005, the company never became profitable and continued to struggle under the weight of a massive debt
burden.

The company raised
cash by selling its Spotlight 29 Casino and Gary property but continued to be on the brink
of financial collapse.

The company still mired in debt paid interest of $ 440 million between May 2005 and Sept
2008, as it consistently reported net losses. The company's financial health deteriorated further when the crises of 2008. hit, leading to Bankruptcy No,. 4 in 2009 of Trump Entertainment Resorts.

Trumps four bankruptcy filings have involved three different entities (bankruptcy no 3 and 4 involving the same entity) and approximately $ 4.7
billion in debt.

The transit of Jupiter and Republicans.

In November 1956 Jupiter entered Virgo Saturn was in Scorpio. Eisenhower won the election.

Jupiter in late Leo and Virgo coincided with the end of World War II and the its aftermath
when Eisenhower returned as a victorious General.

Virgo (Sidereal) is a good slot for Jupiter for the Republicans, Libra somewhat adverse and Scorpio and Sagittarius very good.

So there should be a repeat of late 1980 and 1981 in late 2016 and 2017
Euphoria blending into reality.

1982 . 2018
Early and middle months -
Challenges and problems.

1982 --------------- 2018

Last quarter (Oct to Dec) major changes for the better, a dramatic shift.

1983/1984 ------- 2019/2020
Buoyancy and optimism.

The 1920 American Presidential election had Warren Harding and his running mate Calvin
Coolidge pitted against James M. Cox and his running mate Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The election was held on November 2nd 1920 with the Republicans getting 26.2 % point lead
(60.3 % for the Republicans and 34.1 % for the Democrats.

Jupiter at time was at 20 degrees Leo and indicating Jupiters exercising a strong influence in the latter degrees of Leo. This was after two terms of Woodrow Wilson and was partly anti-
incumbency. By the time of the swearing in Saturn had moved to Virgo the same place it was
when Reagan was elected. Jupiter was at 25 degrees Leo.

True to type Jupiters move into Libra in the last week of September 1922 resulted in a series of scandals including the Teapot Dome Scandal which involved the Tea Pot Dome an
oil reserve set aside for the Navy for an emergency, a portion of which was allegedly awarded to contractors for private purposes. The investigations covered the latter part
of 1922 and most of 1923 and the hearings began on October 1923 after Hardings demise
in August, passing on the baton to Calvin Coolidge his Vice President.

Calvin Coolidge took office on August 3rd 1923 when Jupiter was at 17 degrees Libra,.

Jupiter entered Scorpio in the last week of October 1923.

Nicknamed 'Silent Cal' Calvin Coolidge and known for his quiet steadfast and frugal nature, a former Governor of Massachusetts cleaned up the rampant corruption and provided a model of stability and respectability for the American people in an era of fast paced modernization. He was known to be honest, industrious, conservative with a deep respect
for business.

Ronald Reagan of course had a great deal of respect for Calvin Coolidge who was a type of role
model for him. The transits of Saturn and Jupiter at the time of the Coolidge and Reagan
administrations are enlightening.

The above analysis leads us to three conclusions.
K
Jupiter's transit past 24 degrees Leo somehow increases the momentum in favour of
the Republicans (it touches this point in mid - November moves ahead to 29 degrees retrogrades in January 2016 assumes direct motion in May 2016 and again crosses this point in the second week of July 2016 and enters Virgo in mid August 2016).

The transit of Jupiter from Virgo to Libra (Sidereal) marks a threshold for the worse. (here mid September 2017).

The transit of Jupiter from Libra to Scorpio (Sidereal) results in dramatic changes for the better. (Here mid - October 2018).

It is going to be downhill for Donald Trump now. It will be surprising to many, but it is very
very likely, that when the elections are held in November 2016, it will coincide with one more
of Trump's major business setbacks.

Donald Trump was born on 14th June 1946 at 10.54 am at Jamaica New York 40N41 73W48.
EDT h4w (daylight saving time). Astro Data Bank AA Rating / Astro Sage gives the same data.

The current international developments emanating from Syria are likely to have an adverse impact on the incumbent President, Barrack Obama and his party the Democratic Party. The ongoing crisis which is likely to escalate, in the run up to the elections, to be held in November next year is likely to favour the Republican Party.

The candidate who emerges as the Presidential nominee in the Republican Party therefore assumes importance.

Donald Trump is currently the frontrunner in the Republican Party on the strength of the polls.
His polls however hover around the 25 to 32% range. A candidate must at least cross the 50% mark in his own party before thinking of crossing the 50% mark at a national level.


Donald Trump appeals to the extreme right wing faction of the party, whose grievances he voices. A penchant for rabble rousing and an ability to take liberties with the truth, have enabled him remain at the top, in the polls. Many political pundits had written him off earlier but he has somehow been able to defy gravity and remain where he is.

In order to maintain his lead he has made statements that have alienated whole voter bases, including the Latino vote, the African American vote and other important segments of the voting population. He has made outrageous statements and ridiculed people from both parties, the Republicans and the Democrats (his hit list includes - Caroline Kennedy, John Kerry, Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama, Bernie Sanders etc etc all Democrats and Jeb Bush, George Bush Jr. George Bush Sr. Marco Rubio, John Mac Cain, Carly Fiorina etc etc all Republicans).

To compound the damage he makes with his wild statements, his forays on the Twitter platform have earned him a whole host of new enemies. Bill O'Reilly a respected anchor of Fox News had this to say :

“The worst thing that ever happened to Donald Trump’s life was he learned how to tweet,”
O’Reilly said. “That was the worst thing.”
“What should happen is, the people who love and cherish Donald Trump should, after 9 at
night, handcuff him so he can’t do that,” he added.

As per the polls he is unelectable on a national basis.
Hillary Clinton leads him by 4.6 % points according to Real Clear Politics a national pollster.
The same pollster has Marco Rubio beating Hillary Clinton by 3%. Even Job Bush fares better than Trump.

The Presidential Race in the United States is a Marathon and the momentum builds up a more than a year before the elections are held and the respective parties choose their nominees around June/July of the election year, the elections being held in November.

Polls are polls and the votes are yet to be cast in the caucus and primaries and he must receive endorsements to get the nomination. All this must be done before July when the Republican Convention will be held between the 18th and 21st of July 2016 at Cleveland Ohio. In the past candidates with extreme or eccentric views, who have had early leads, have been jettisoned by the mainstream, when the actual votes are cast. What do the stars indicate?


Donald Trump has Leo rising with Mars in the Lagna and Moon and Kethu in the fourth house in Scorpio in Jyesta nakshatra. The Sun and Rahu are in Taurus in the tenth house. (Moon/Kethu and Sun/Rahu are conjoined in close orbs. ).

Donald Trump has been running Rahu/Mars since end October this year and it will last to November next year (the month of the elections) . This is the last Antar Dasa and goes by the name of Dasa Sandhi/ Dasa Chidra. It marks a major transition either up or down.For his Jyesta nakshatra the junction between Rahu/Mars and Jupt/Jupt has been known to mark the final phase, a transition like death, retirement or fall from grace.

Saturn is currently transiting Anuradha nakshatra the one previous to his Janma nakshatra which is the known as the Param Mita Tara (9th 18th and 27th from the birth nakshatra). It is considered a auspicious nakshatra for transit purposes. Saturn enters his Janma nakshatra Jyeshta at the end of December, it will be in aspect to Moon and Kethu (conjunction) Sun and Rahu (opposition) (Rahu being the MD lord) and Mars (by aspect) (Mars being the AD lord). Jupiter will be entering Virgo on 11th August 2016 a transit which has in the past proved inauspicious as he has suffered two bankruptcies during its earlier two transits(1992 and 2004). The combined influences should see his power and lead declining dramatically in the coming months.

Jupiter which in various houses in a natal chart acts as a conscience keeper, a prayer room, and a moral barometer, can certainly wreck havoc, and at times when in transit, it reminds one of the 11th Chapter of the Bhagvad Gita when Arjuna sees the multifarious and awesome manifestations of God.

Jupiter in Leo has presided over skirmishes, civil wars, world wars, market collapses and even banks going belly up.

The current crises in Syria has a precedent going back about 36 years ago (Three cycles of Jupiter.)

The crises in Iran began way back in 1979 during the latter portion of Jimmy Carter's first term, on the heels of the successful rapprochement between Israel and Egypt, made possible by his active intervention and the historic Camp David accord brilliantly mediated by him.

Iran however proved to be his Waterloo.


The crises began on November 4, 1979 when Iranian students and revolutionaries took over the American Embassy in Teheran and ultimately taking 52 American diplomats and citizens as hostages. (one hostage was released because of illness on July 11, 1980).

The crises lasted for 444 days or 1 year, 2 months, 2 weeks and 2 days, was highly publicised and cost Jimmy Carter his presidency.

Jupiter was at 12 degrees Leo.

The President belonged to the Democratic Party.

During the crises 8 American servicemen were killed in an abortive rescue attempt.

Jupiter entered Virgo on 26th Sept 1980.

On 4th November 1980, the Republicans with Ronald Reagan (as the Presidential candidate) and George Bush Sr.( as the Vice Presidential candidate) won the elections. ----- Jupiter was at degrees Virgo.

The crises ended on January 20, 1981 the day the Republicans were sworn in and the hostages released. Jupiter was at 16 degrees Virgo.

----------- --------------------
Jupiter is at 26 degrees Leo today.

The President belongs to the Democratic Party.

On 11th August 2016 Jupiter will enter Virgo.

On the 8th of November 2016 when the United States, Presidential Elections will be held Jupiter will be at 17 degrees Virgo.

On 20th Jan 2017 the next President of the United States will be sworn in. Jupiter will be at 28 degrees Virgo.

The current crises could be somewhat long drawn and prove costly for the Democrats. Jupiter in Virgo, in the past at the time of the elections, has by a very large margin, favoured the Republicans

The recent developments in the run up to the American Presidential Elections, have thrown the spotlight on Donald Trump. He and Hillary Clinton are frontrunners but Jeff Greenfield a brilliant political analyst distinguishes between an actual frontrunner and a FRINO (front frontrunner in name only).

To quote him
" If Leo Tolstoy had covered American politics, he might say that “all front-runners become
unhappy; but each becomes unhappy in his or her own way.” Or perhaps we could borrow from
George Orwell, who didn’t quite say: “Not all front-runners are equal, but some are way, way
more unequal than others.”

Donald Trump has not only become unelectable at the national level, but has done more damage to the Republican Party than perhaps Ross Perot ( by running as an Independent) did in 1992.

This is a typical Dasa Sandhi / Sade Sati influence with the Sun, Moon, MD (Rahu) and AD (Mars) lords being aspected by transit Saturn. This has impacted not only his political aspirations but also his business interests.

This is a typical negative spiral because his business interests in Turkey, the Gulf and across the world are in jeopardy.

Saturn enters his Janma Nakshatra on the 28th of this month.

Rahu/ Mars/Rahu/Venus operates at that time.

It is at this point that more clarity will emerge and developments gather more pace and urgency. There could be more twists and turns.


Mainstream Republicans have distanced themselves and he has received no endorsements.(Jeb Bush leads in endorsements but his poll figures at this stage are in single digits).

Astrologically the Republicans have a very strong edge. The candidates to look out for at this stage are Marco Rubio, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie.

With the shock defeat of Donald Trump in the Iowa Caucus his options are being narrowed. What is disturbing is not only the margin of defeat from the winner Ted Cruz, but the narrowing of the gap between him and Marco Rubio by only 1% point. (Ted Cruz 28 % Donald Trump 24% and Marco Rubio 23%). Trump and Rubio are tied with 7 delegates each.


Saturn remains in his Janma Rasi and Nakshatra. The directional influences and transits are are not encouraging. They are in fact adverse.

Saturn becomes retrograde on 26th March and resumes direct motion on 14th August 2016. Not only is Saturn's transit adverse but with the actual votes cast he is no longer the reality star getting the oxygen of poll figures.

This is the time when the party base vote seriously.

Trump is still ahead in the polls in New Hampshire, but polls could fizzle overnight.

On one hand there are very negative transits and ominous directional influences, but Trump has proven to be resilient with a base support. But along with a solid base he has a solid ceiling and his votes don't translate beyond a certain percentage margin.

Ted Cruz is leading but those who win the initial caucus in Iowa tend to be ideologically far right. Moreover Ted Cruz is not liked by the establishment nor his peers. The attention comes to Marco Rubio as the 'centre' candidate favoured by the establishment who has the poll figures and the background to take the fight to the Democrats in November.

Rubio is now become the hot favourite to become the candidate of the establishment, like Mitt Romney, John Mac Cain and George W Bush were in earlier cycles.

Marco Rubio was born on 28th May 1971 at Miami 80W12 25N46 h4W (DST). He has the Sun and Sat in Taurus, the Moon in Cancer and Jupiter in Scorpio. Mercury and Venus are conjoined in the tenth from Moon in Aries. Natal Jupiters aspect over both the luminaries Sun and Moon is a positive placement and is usually associated with faith integrity and good fortune. Obama has this combination. Mars is exalted. Jupiter, the Moon (own house) and Saturn are placed in friendly houses.

Transit Saturn is however opposing his natal Sun and Saturn. Jupiter will move into the adverse third from his Moon in August. Transit Saturn from the fifth into the sixth from natal Moon has been known to spring surprises usually of the negative kind. Here the birth time is important. Prima facie these are headwinds. The exact birth time will determine if this is a close of one chapter in his life or a summit to be scaled shortly. There could still be twists and turns in the Republican camp.


The Democrats are tied with Clinton and Sanders garnering 49% each with Clinton nosing ahead. With O'Malley bowing out it is a two horse race.

Trump did very well in NH.
Cruz cheated in Iowa. Now he is polling low.
Rubio is done as of now. Robot Rubio.

Trump is polling very good in SC. Looks like he will win.
