In this current period, when the USA is being run by a “stable genius”, in the President’s own repeated description of himself, Democratic hopes are being pinned on any candidate that can liberate the United States from the terrifying grip of a man who got elected in 2016 with the votes from the half of the electorate who clearly liked watching The Apprentice, where Trump was the big boss. Trump struck a chord with them with his promise to build a wall, put barriers up to immigration, protect the coal industry, repeal Obamacare (well, repeal Obama, really) and clean up the Washington swamp.
The State of the Union
This appeal to the fears of the (white) American electorate was extraordinarily effective, because the USA is a country with a lot of survival anxiety, and a very poor social safety net – an electorate the Democrats have foolishly abandoned over the years. Though immigrants and overseas production were Trump’s chosen scapegoats, this is not the reason voters in the Rust Belt are suffering. In fact there are twice as many immigrants in coastal states that vote Democrat than in the mid-West. The reason is the automation of low-skill jobs, and it is going to get worse, as even some service jobs will also slowly disappear as artificial intelligence replaces their functions. Whilst USA officially has about 5% unemployment, this is not the true figure because many people have given up looking for work and make do on disability support, welfare hand-outs and part time jobs. Added to this is the fact that for several decades, real incomes have been going down for working-class Americans, and many have jobs giving subsistence wages. People are furious. Donald Trump is their revenge.
The State of the President
Some Trump voters probably were attracted to the fact that he said things without a politically correct filter, women voters obviously didn’t mind him molesting women, and he seemed a refreshing alternative to pretty unattractive characters like Ted Cruz. And Hillary Clinton. But nothing good can come to a country when a narcissist is given the keys to power. In the end the country reconstitutes itself from the top down, as people in the Administration who disagree with the narcissist are weeded out, until the man is surrounded only by sycophants.

A Lesson in Astrology
Trump’s horoscope tells the story. With Leo rising and the Sun in the 10th, he is the classic self-made man with a big ego. The conjunction with the North Node brings a dream-like quality and inflates the ego to supernatural proportions. The Sun in Gemini shows that communication is a key to his success, and the conjunction of the Sun with Uranus, shows his mastery of the media and the tweet. The eclipsed “blood” Moon in Sagittarius in the 4th house, reflects his projections on those immigrants streaming in from foreign lands, and the “carnage” in US cities. It is the Sun-Uranus in Gemini that gives his extraordinarily disjointed speech and repetitions. The Trump Tower is his edifice and the metaphor for his power, with its golden elevators a reflection of the Moon’s nodes that create channels from the heavens to the earth, and from the seat of power to the people.
The dispositor of the Sun, Mercury, is in Cancer in the 11th house, showing his ability to communicate with the populace, and the square to Neptune his congenital lying. Mars conjoining the Leo Ascendant shows his pugilistic attitude, bullying tendencies and need to belittle opponents, but also his charisma. Sun-Uranus trine Jupiter in the 2nd house indicates his amazing good fortune, whilst Neptune (square Mercury) shows his bankruptcies. He is a fighter, and he is lucky. As he says: “I’ve always won, and I’m going to continue to win. And that’s the way it is.”
And, indeed, nobody should underestimate Trump’s capacity to win. His Sun-Uranus trine Jupiter is almost the definition of good luck. He is a man who has repeatedly used litigation to get what he wants, and this is why impeachment is not necessarily going to be successful. Astrological factors in 2020 seem to show that he will be fighting every step of the way, and that the fight is going to be virulent and dirty as retrograde Mars activates the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto stellium in Capricorn three times in the latter part of the year. In 2020 autocrats the world over will be fighting for survival, and new political structures will take form when it is over.

Next year, the mayor’s affordable housing plan, which calls for building or preserving 200,000 units of affordable housing over the next decade, will begin to take shape. It hinges on a policy that requires developers to build affordable housing in exchange for being allowed to construct taller and denser buildings in neighborhoods rezoned by the city. Developers and housing advocates alike are waiting to see what it will look like once the administration adds muscle and flesh to the bones of the proposal.

The graph shows how Mars goes on from Capricorn and into Aries, where it performs a pirouette moving retrograde at 28 Aries two months before the election and direct again at 15 Aries 10 days after the election. What is particularly damaging about this Mars transit is that it makes square aspects three times to the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn, exacerbating the attacks on whatever Trump’s Venus-Saturn conjunction in Cancer means. This probably refers to his financial empire from which more secrets spill out – the tax returns for example – and perhaps also his assaults on women will receive renewed attention. But one thing is certain: Trump will be fighting like a cornered tiger and this is a very dangerous period for America. Trump’s casual asides about civil war may become very real at this time, or, alternatively, a foreign policy “adventure” may seem attractive to him to distract voters and awaken patriotic support for the president.
Trump is of course only one side of the equation. On the other side there appear to be three main candidates for the Democratic nomination: Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. These, like Trump are rather old people – they will be in their seventies – and Sanders in particular looks vulnerable because of a recent heart attack.
Crazy Bernie (as Trump has called him) has the Sun at 15 Virgo square Jupiter at 19.50 Gemini, which shows a knowledgeable debater who masters the smallest details. Unfortunately the current Neptune transit activates this square well up to the election, which means his high hopes will most likely dissipate. The Moon in Aries conjoins Mars – a clear indication of his fiery independence and passion. The opposition to Venus (which like Mars is strong in its own sign) shows a purity of intention and desire for justice, which is strengthened by a great trine to Jupiter in Gemini. This is a guy whose mastery of rhetoric is as broad as Trump’s is limited. Finally, the trine of Saturn-Uranus to Neptune-Mercury shows his revolutionary engagement in socialist ideals. (Saturn-Neptune aspects are associated with left-wing political idealism).

Joe Biden has been the front runner for most of 2019, and as a result he has been the focus of a heavily financed smear campaign which is currently exploding in Trump’s face, leading directly to impeachment proceedings. Referred to by Trump as Sleepy Joe, he is by no means a political weakling, which is evidenced by his stellium of four planets in Scorpio, including Mars, which is square Pluto. This last aspect could be one reason that there have been complaints of overfamiliarity towards woman – Mars square Pluto tends to invade other people’s space, and there are sexual overtones to it. Ask Harvey Weinstein, who has exactly the same aspect.

Warren earned herself the nickname of Pocahontas from Trump, because of her claim to American Indian heritage. She does actually have 1/64th indigenous blood as she rather clumsily illustrated through an embarrassingly staged revelation of a DNA test, which only served to irritate leaders of the Cherokee nation. Trump is really going to have fun with this. As he recently said:
“I did the Pocahontas thing. I hit her really hard, and it looked like she was down and out… But don’t worry, we will revive it. It can be revived. It will be revived..”
(Trump likes to say things at least three times… it’s the Gemini in him)
For starters, breaches like that of Bitstamp and the much larger (valued at about $400 million at the time) 2011 hack of the exchange Mt. Gox are often misconstrued as security issues with the currency itself. But they are only signs of flaws in those particular exchanges and not a sign of an issue with the underlying technology. And it is the underlying technology behind bitcoin that most excites. As we wrote in the “Shape the Future” package of our January 2015 issue, most of the vocal enthusiasts so bullish on bitcoin—from big-name entrepreneurs like Marc Andreessen to the developers and miners who spend their days refreshing the bitcoin Reddit page—are more interested in the applications that can be built on bitcoin’s “block chain,” the currency’s foundational backbone, than they are in bitcoin as a monetary system. The block chain allows the secure exchange of any form of value between two entities.

A few years back I wrote an article saying that if Hillary Clinton was elected in 2016, she would be a one-term president. The same arguments applied to any president elected that year, and, as it turned out to everyone’s surprise, this was Donald Trump. The reason for this is that there is a massive buildup of planetary transits in Capricorn prior to 2021, which shows the rise of autocracy. But then suddenly everything changes as planets move into Aquarius just after the 2020 election, and it seems unlikely that the president can survive this transition. These Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions take place every 20 years and coincide with every 5th election, and the elections of 2000, 1980 and 1960 were all elections when new presidents were elected.

The Election Chart
There are a few important comments to be made about election day. The Sun is always in Scorpio in US elections, but for the first time since 1936, the election takes place with the Sun opposing Uranus. Actually in 1936, Roosevelt was re-elected in the midst of the Depression, but it is quite likely that the 2020 opposition shows extreme upsets for the country’s leader. Bearing in mind that the Capricorn stellium very closely opposes Trump’s Saturn-Venus, he is likely to be unpopular, and heavy judgments are likely to fall against him. At the election, there is a Moon Node return for Trump, and the December eclipse falls right in his Moon, which again may eclipse his popularity.

Separate temperature measurements taken from satellites do not show 2014 as a record year, although it is close.
