With the article of Claire Chandler on Astro.com*) in mind (and even before I read that article), I am very careful with predictions and seemingly choosing sides in politics or any other fiery matter. I try to be as objective as can be, though I know that pure objectivity isn't a human thing. It is even more necessary to stick to the facts, when it comes to Donald Trump. He seems to have more enemies than friends. Yes, Donald Trump may not even be the most popular person in the world of astrology as well. Yet, he is the prime Republican candidate in the USA right now and that is interesting What in the chart shows it, I wondered. Picture this: British MP's tried to forbid him to enter the country and called him names! So they probably already know that he won't be the next POTUS. It would be so inconvenient to have to say sorry, after November. Until then, and maybe for a shorter period of time, he will be running and that makes it interesting to see why he is so popular among the Republican voters.
Here you see his progressed chart with transits. Supportive Jupiter is on the Ascendant in his progressed chart. That is why. It is a big help for anyone and so it also helps Donald Trump, also because Jupiter transits his natal 10th house of status and position. Furthermore, the progressed Sun is on his natal horizon (the axis Ascendant-Descendant).
Will this last?
Jupiter-Ascendant (in the progressed chart) is almost overdue and so is Sun-Ascendant. On Election Day, Mars will be opposition MC in his progressed chart. The polls say that running Clinton is still ahead of him (see http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/latest_polls/president/ ). So maybe the British MPs weren’t taking much risk when they called Donald Trump names. I haven’t heard much about what Republicans say about Clinton (in the European press), so perhaps they all know the results of the Presidential Elections alreadyJ. Prognosis is not just for astrologers! It is like when they choose the Chairman (or woman, in this case) of the Dutch parliament. They talked for hours and hours, asked the candidates a lot of questions and before all that someone on Twitter had already calculated the seats and told as that the winner would win as she did. So they all knew. All that talking…Donald Trump won’t mind. He has a natal Mercury Out of Bounds (and Pluto, too). That is an off side Mercury, communicating without restrictions, for those 'speaking their minds'. For the way to answer that, here is Graham's hierarchy of disagreement.
Claire Chandler ‘When an astrologer speaks’
I recommend that you read this article. In short, it is about the impact of words spoken by astrologers and the risk to become the beheaded messengerJ. She advices not to predict negative things if you don’t want to be seen as the partner of doom (well, those are my words, but you know what I mean, I hopeJ).
