SUN TRANSITS LIBRA OCTOBER 16TH, 2020 UNTIL NOVEMBER 15TH, 2020
According to Vedic Astrology and the Sidereal Zodiac (which is 23 degrees earlier than the Tropical Zodiac used by Western astrologers, from October 16th, 2020-November 15th, 2020 Sun will transit the sign of Libra.
Sun is in its debilitation sign of Libra during this transit which is not ideal. It can weaken the areas of your life that the Sun rules in your chart and is not ideal for authority figures, digestion, and the immune system.
Sun, ruling governments, is debilitated in Libra from mid-October to mid-November every year, when the USA holds national elections. This date was originally established as it fell between the time farmers finished harvesting crops and before the beginning of the heavy snows. In 1845 Congress mandated the first Tuesday of November as a uniform national date for choosing Presidential electors.
This debilitation of the Sun, every year, likely contributes to the problems that frequently occur around our elections.
In view of this, the country might be better served to move elections to the first Tuesday in May, when Sun is in its exaltation sign, Aries; or in September when Sun is in its own sign, Leo.

If you subtract 23 degrees from the position of the planets in the Western horoscope (Tropical Zodiac), you arrive at the Vedic astrology horoscope, (Sidereal Zodiac). Typically, the Sun sign moves backwards by one sign.
Astronomically speaking, the Tropical Zodiac used by Western astrologers is based on the position of the planets more than 2,000 years ago, whereas the Sidereal Zodiac used by Vedic astrologers is based on the position of the planets on the DAY OF YOUR BIRTH.
