I've been reading my emails from fellow astrologers on why they were wrong in predicting who would win the election. One astrology organization had a panel of 12 professional astrologers discuss the election and all 12 predicted Hillary would win. I don't accept the excuse that she really won because of the popular vote. We should be able to tell which candidate would be president for 4 years and which would not. I didn't make a prediction because in the Gore/Bush race, I predicted Gore and then we found out that we had the wrong birth time for Bush. We don't have any firm birth time for Hillary. But one of the times suggested, not confirmed, would put transiting Saturn at the bottom of the chart. I call this the "dark night of the soul" aspect. Not conducive to success. In the Hero's Journey, the Hero is in a cave, digging up a treasure which is his true vocation, his gifts. Then he starts to climb up to bring his true gift to the tribe. That takes about 7 years. Trump, on the other hand has his Progressed Sun conjunct his ascendant, people saw him shining forth as a king. I personally think the placement of the progressed Sun is of major importance. I think it "trumps" all other aspects.
There are two major problems in predicting. One is deciding which aspects in the chart is the most important. The other problem is confirmation bias, meaning we interpret the aspects as confirmation of our beliefs. In other words, we see what we want to see. I'm sure all astrologers on that panel were Hillarites. In fact, I haven't yet met or heard of an astrologer who is a Trumpite. If you are please comment below.
