On election day, Sun, ruling President Trumpʻs vitality and reputation, along with Venus, ruling his self-initiatives, will both be debilitated — lacking the power to protect and promote their significations.
Additionally, his natal Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Rahu and Ketu will all be under the affliction of transit Rahu. Mars, ruling his 9th house of good fortune, will be weak in the 8th house of setbacks, while his operating planet, Saturn, ruling relationships, will be weak in the 6th house of debts and disputes. These transits do not appear to be favorable for his reelection.
Where the Vedic Astrology Planets are this Week
Sun transits its debilitation sign, Libra, from 05:06 to 12:05°. Presidents, leaders, physicians, and administrators should expect less and get extra rest through mid-Nov.
Moon is waxing and transits Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and into Pisces.
Mars transits Pisces from 24:26 to 22:45°. CDT. Mars remains within 5 degrees of the 5th aspect of Ketu, until Dec. 24th. This is a vulnerable time for sports, surgeons, the military, police, property, (wildfires) construction, engineering, executives, et al.
Mars is in retrograde motion until November 13th. The adverse effects are primarily for Taurus, Virgo, and Scorpio horoscopes – but only when Mars is within 5 degrees of the rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction.
Mercury transits Libra, from 12:58 to 04:38°. Mercury is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This connects business, writing, technology, communications, and intellectual property with women, justice, and the fine, healing and performing arts. * (The Senate likely to confirm Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court as soon as Monday, Oct. 26.)
Mercury is retrograde until November 3rd (national elections). The adverse effects are primarily for Aries, Libra and Aquarius horoscopes – but only when Mercury is within 5 degrees of the rising sign degree (in any house) or another planet by aspect or conjunction.
Jupiter transits its own sign, Sagittarius, from 25:38 to 26:31°. Jupiter is outside the orb of influence of other planets. This should be helpful for law, religion, education, publishing, teaching, and consulting.
Venus transits out of Leo and into its debilitation sign, Virgo, on Oct. 23rd at 12:15 a.m. CDT. Venus is debilitated until November 15th. Take care of the women in your life and be patient with luxuries, medicine, entertainment and the fine, healing or performing arts.
Saturn transits its own sign, Capricorn, from 01:37 to 01:56°. Cancer, Virgo and Pisces rising sign persons, companies, and countries (including USA) should be careful and patient whenever Saturn is close to any of their planets or rising sign degree, by aspect or conjunction.
Rahu and Ketu transit Taurus and Scorpio, respectively, (where they will be until March 16, 2022) from 27:10 to 26:42°. Persons, companies and countries with a rising sign between 27 and 25 degrees — or any planets in even signs (Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn and Pisces) between 27 and 25 degrees, should be careful and patient.
