Notes: On Election Day, in the SAMVA horoscope* for the U.S., transit debilitated Sun, ruling the president, the government, and the status of the country, is under the exact impact of natal Rahu and Ketu, which is likely to cause highs and lows – or an eclipse relative to leadership.
Transit Moon is conjunct transit Rahu, causing emotional disturbances nationwide.
Transit Rahu and Ketu closely impact natal Saturn, ruling the 8th house of delays, setbacks, obstructions, vulnerability, transformations, and deathlike experiences. This may also cause fluctuations for the masses, the elderly and the poor and needy.
Transit 6th house ruler, Jupiter, is moving away from 4th house ruler, Venus. This begins to ease the debts, disputes, mental tension, health and legal issues that have plagued the country since mid-July. Expect more relief after Nov. 14th.
Mars, ruling the 10th house of the national workforce, is under the influence of Ketu — which is likely to cause setbacks through Dec. 23rd.
Taken together, it appears that the country remains in a stressful situation. Take care of your family and exercise a great deal of care and patience.

On election day, Sun, ruling President Trumpʻs vitality and reputation, along with Venus, ruling his self-initiatives, are both debilitated – and lack the power to protect and promote their significations.
Additionally, his natal Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Rahu and Ketu are under the impact of transit Rahu.
Mars, ruling the 9th house of dharma and good fortune, is weak in the 8th house of setbacks, while his operating planet, Saturn, ruling relationships, is weak in the 6th house of debts and disputes.
These transits do not appear to be favorable for his reelection.
