Could Trump win again in 2020? Two things are certain. Firstly, Trump has lost the cornucopia of Jupiters which swept him into the White House in 2016. Secondly it isn’t going to be a joyous Obama-type win which puts the USA on a high for a few months. So neither a jubilant Donald, nor a euphoric Democratic win.
What is for sure is that it will be one of the most fraught, bitterly hostile and high-risk elections for a long time given the state of the USA 1776 chart with tr Pluto opposing the Mercury and tugging on the USA Pluto, giving rise to a mood of fanaticism and no compromise. And the Inauguration 2021 chart which looks explosive and control-freaky, with an upsurge of revolt rocking the boat.
Trump will have been shuddering under the weight of tr Pluto opposition his Saturn and Mars/Node in 2019, labouring on through 2020 as well, so he won’t be as buoyant as usual. In addition in 2020 tr Pluto moves on to oppose his unpopular Venus/Saturn and hugely frustrated Sun/Mars midpoints, repeating till late 2021. Tr Neptune will also be chiselling away at his foundations squaring his Uranus this year and Uranus/Node through early 2020 campaigning; and tr Neptune will square his Sun/Uranus across the 2020 summer and presumably the GOP Convention, which will bring setbacks, emotional crisis, physical weakness. It’s not beyond the bounds of possibility that another Republican candidate is chosen.
Over the election itself he has tr Pluto opposition his Mars/Uranus midpoint which is associated with force, violent interventions, and is generally accident or disaster prone and bad tempered. And nothing very positive from other influences.
On a 10.54 am birth time for him, tr Pluto is aiming to trine his MC over the inauguration which could sound successful and influential and he certainly looks as if he is firing on all cylinders from his Solar and Lunar Returns covering the election and just after. Though they could also point to a change in career direction. So it’s the usual mish mash of contradictory influences and nothing too obvious pointing to success.
The USA doesn’t look remotely happy in the aftermath with tr Neptune square the USA Mars picking up from late March 2021, bringing a panicky sense of failure; plus tr Pluto opposition the USA Mercury through till late 2021, which will continue the intense arguments.
