Donald Trump enters the last week of October with an interesting and powerful aspect. Transiting Jupiter is now in a sextile aspect to his natal Pluto. Jupiter is transiting Trump’s second house of money and values, and his natal Pluto resides in his twelfth house. Pluto is the ruler of his fourth house of home and real estate concerns/interests. Interestingly, this aspect is exact on Wednesday this week, and on that day, Trump will be at a celebration to open his new hotel in Washington DC. The grand opening and ribbon cutting is to occur at 11 AM on the 26th. Because of this aspect, this hotel/property might actually result in some decent profits for Trump if he plays his cards right. It should definitely help. On the other hand, the Sun squares his progressed Saturn (in his progressed 10th house) on the 25th. This does not bode well for his public image or reputation.
On the other hand, transiting Chiron (in Trump’s seventh house) is squaring his natal Moon in the fifth house. He is probably feeling emotionally vulnerable now, and he may continue to have additional problems with more women coming forward and accusing him of unwanted sexual aggression toward them. This happens as transiting Pluto continues to square his natal Chiron in the second. He is probably continuing to experience financial woes which could limit his election campaign. Transiting Chiron is also squaring his progressed Uranus. His insistence to have things his way is likely resulting in his not getting much help from his “friends” in the Republican Party.
On the 29th, transiting Mercury trines Trump’s natal Mercury. He may be able to get his message out effectively on that date. However, transiting Mercury squares his natal Pluto the next day, and he may be obsessed with something unimportant or trivial in terms of the overall picture. Or, he may suffer from some behind the scenes power play. He could also receive public or media scorn for the way he uses his own power to hurt or disadvantage other people.
On the 31st, The Sun trines Trump’s natal Mercury in the eleventh house. He may receive words of encouragement from friends, or he might give an effective speech to a large gathering of people (a rally). Transiting Mars (in Trump’s fifth house) opposes his natal Saturn in the eleventh on that date as well. He may be seething in silence as a result of what a friend, lover, or one of his children has done. This might also result in more action with regard to the Trump University lawsuit as Mars had just squared transiting Uranus (in Trump’s ninth house), This is a very troubling aspect for him at a critical time in the campaign.
Hillary will experience her solar return on the 25th. Her birthdate is actually the 26th, but her solar return occurs on the 25th if we assume an 8:02 PM birth time. This is a time of renewed energy and of new beginnings. This is a powerful and positive aspect, and she’ll benefit from it. Mercury also conjoins her natal Sun. She’ll communicate well and positively. She’ll be able to make her points effectively.
On the 27th, Saturn will be in an exact trine to Hillary’s natal Mars. She will act in an effective and relentless manner. She’ll be a formidable opponent to Donald Trump at this time (even more so than usual). This aspect is good for planning, working, and managing a specific project and/or achieving a narrow objective.
Transiting Mars will sextile Hillary’s natal Mercury on the 28th. She will be a passionate speaker on that date, and she’ll be able to speak up for herself and defend herself if need be.
Transiting Venus will trine her natal Mars on the 29th. This aspect symbolizes a balance between the masculine and feminine qualities that we all have. She be able to be assertive when it is called for, and she’ll be pleasant and likable if need be as well. She will know when to hold her ground or when it would be better to compromise.
Transiting Venus will trine Hillary’s Pluto on the 30th. Hillary’s emotional experiences will be intensified by this aspect. She’ll need to be a bit careful as the compulsive quality of this aspect can cause a problem at times. I suspect that she will handle this well because she is a Scorpio. Scorpios like it intense.
