2016 U.S. ELECTION ASTROLOGY – HI HILLARY!
The U.S. presidential election of 2016 is scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2016. It’s goodbye to President Barack Obama, because he legally cannot serve another term. The astrology says, it’s a huge hello to Hillary Clinton – if she can overcome two big problems. The first one is Benghazi. The second one is her husband, former President Bill Clinton. We don’t have a birth time for Hillary, but the basics of her horoscope are clear. She’ll be the 2016 U.S. President if she can get over those two difficult B-words. Of course, I’m not the only astrologer predicting a Clinton win, fifteen months before it happens.
A truly incredible prediction about Hillary’s run for the White House was made all the way back on May 7th 2012 by astrologers Patrick Watson, Chris Brennan and Nick Dagan Best, who told ABC News that “after being Madame Secretary the next title of one of the world’s most powerful and popular women may well be Madam President” Remember, this was at a time when Hillary and Bill were both denying her bid.
I am also not the only astrologer to see a third B-word problem for Hillary, though, apart from Benghazi and Bill. And that third B-word is Bernie. Fellow Democrat Bernie Sanders, who is pulling bigger crowds than either Hillary or even Barack Obama ever did, is a real threat. We don’t have a birth time for him, but we know he is a Virgo, born on September 8th, 1941. He is campaigning on health care, as every good Virgo should. He is competing against Hillary for the precious Democrat nomination for President. Will Benghazi, Bill and Bernie stand in her way? At some point astrologers will be given accurate birth data for Bernie, and I will add to this prediction, in August 2015 – but right now, it’s enough to say – Bernie Sanders is a Virgo, pressing Virgo buttons about health. And it’s working. Just look at the people in his audience. So many of them were born with Pluto and Uranus in Virgo! I’ll look at why that counts, in a moment.
WHY IS BENGHAZI SUCH AN ISSUE FOR HILLARY CLINTON?
Why is Benghazi an issue? It’s not just a Republican obsession. It’s a real-deal concern, because an eclipse hit Hillary Clinton’s horoscope in Australia, right when she should have been at home in America, dealing with it. Who knows what compelled her to run to Australia, chasing that eclipse as the Benghazi issue flared up? Fate says, it must be managed, whichever way. Regular readers of this website will know I have been predicting unfinished business with Benghazi for years. As for Bill Clinton, let’s look at that in a minute. Because he will make or break this election! First up, though, consider Aquarian Jeb Bush.
THE JEB BUSH HOROSCOPE AND THE 2016 ELECTION
According to opinion polls in 2015, Clinton is the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, and the general election. Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, will seek to become the third Bush to sit in the Oval Office. As I write this on 13th August 2015, Bush is seen as the Republican establishment’s favoured choice. What are his chances?
THE AMERICAN VOTERS AND JEB BUSH – GEN LIBRA DECIDE
Jeb Bush needs to persuade Gen Virgo and Gen Libra. Born with outer planets in Virgo and Libra, and the principal voters in this election. Let’s look at Gen Libra first, because they are most likely to turn out in huge numbers to vote for a female President. Libra (The Scales of Balance) is about gender equality, as you might suspect. These voters were born in the early days of Women’s Liberation. They are also the voters who are most emotional about equal marriage. Cue Hillary, their heroine! Do they want Jeb Bush? Maybe. Just a little bit. Because he is in a mixed-nationality marriage. But that’s all.

WHAT WORKS FOR JEB BUSH?
What works for Jeb Bush? The fact that he is married to a Mexican-American so he has a strong connection to key Hispanic voters and is selling a mixed-race marriage message to Gen Libra, the generation born with Neptune ,Uranus and Pluto in Libra. Remember, their parents had all the Beatles and John Lennon albums in their homes, either as adults or growing up. Their parents’ hero – and maybe their own – was a white English guy married to a Japanese woman. And he was a stay-at-home husband, too. Gen Libra responds to politicians and celebrities who are living proof that equal-but-different partnerships work.
WHAT DOESN’T WORK FOR JEB BUSH?
The number one thing that does not work for Jeb Bush is that he’s a Republican! Current conservative Republican policy is way out of step with the Libra generation. Gen Libra want to see gay, lesbian and transgender people married. They want to see women as equals. None of this stuff sings with Republican policy in 2016.
As an Aquarian Jeb Bush also has Saturn going through his house of groups. The Republicans have never been such hard work for him. Nor the Democrats. In fact, this campaign is going to be harder than he or anyone else thought.
The Republicans might just appeal to these equality-crazy Libra generation voters with their only female candidate, Carly Fiorina, but in general their anti-abortion, anti-immigrant message is out of step with the Libra generation. And – their anti-Obamacare message is completely out of step with the Virgo generation, now in their fifties. They are also key voters and I’ll look at them in a moment. Obama will be remembered for Obamacare, full stop. It’s happening. It has to be completed. You might say, it was always going to happen for America, the moment those Sixties babies born with Uranus and Pluto in Virgo (the body sign) drew their first breath.
I know that my friend and colleague Susan Miller predicted that Scorpio Scott Walker was going into the election at the right time, but he opposes abortion, even in cases of rape and incest – and that’s just not on, with the Libra generation of voters. Of course, Hillary Clinton is also a Scorpio, though. And as Susan concludes, she definitely began her climb at the right time. If she can just over the Bill/Benghazi issues, she’ll be in the White House by 2017.
AND THE WINNER OF THE ELECTION IS…
Here’s where astrology can really deliver the goods, even if the candidates don’t give us birth times. (We have them provided by Jeb Bush himself and Bill Clinton’s mother – but not the key person we need to know about, Hillary herself).
Despite this lack of confirmed birth data, just by knowing two things about her – a) she is the first likely female President and b) she is the survivor of a broken marriage – we can say, she speaks to Gen Libra. Now, what about the other voter group? The Obamacare voters?
GEN VIRGO – VOTERS BORN WITH URANUS, NEPTUNE OR PLUTO IN VIRGO
This generation are chiefly concerned with their bodies! They are the generation who drink mineral water, wear trainers, have gym membership, obsess over diets and – want Obamacare. The best thing President Barack Obama ever did for Hillary Clinton was give her the policy that Uranus and Pluto in Virgo voters were born to elect. Virgo is the sign that has been associated with the body for over 2000 years and the millions of voters born with Uranus (change) and Pluto (empowerment) in that sign, are going to love whichever President continues the revolution. Now this is where Virgo Bernie Sanders is going to collect votes. I can only repeat, without a birth time for him, or for Hilary, we just can’t call this election. Just about the only Democrat with a confirmed birth horoscope is Al Gore, and in August 2015, he denies he’s running. But we can say – Bernie Sanders is in the game, in a major way.
Even without birth times, one thing is clear. This is not a Republican 2016 victory. It belongs to a Democrat. Why? Because there are a ton of voters out there who want equal marriage and equal rights for women. That’s the Libra generation. And the Virgo generation? For them, the Democrats’ Obamacare – the Affordable Health Care Act – is the big vote-swinger.

HOW BILL CLINTON CAN BECOME AN ELECTION ASSET
Remembering that the Libra generation are deeply concerned with marriage, fairness, equality, partnership, feminism and the rest – their favourite fantasy must be a power couple who stuck together, despite everything. This generation grew up in the divorce aftermath of the 1981 wedding of Charles, Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer at St Paul’s Cathedral and the affair-turned-marriage of Charles to Camilla Parker-Bowles. This stuff is not ‘just’ love to Gen Libra. It’s life itself.
Their moms (or they) watched Luke and Laura marry on the U.S. soap opera General Hospital; the highest-rated hour in daytime TV history. They went out in their millions to watch the ultimate Jupiter in Libra film, Mr and Mrs Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. And not only because of the plot.
WHAT WOULD AN ASTROLOGER TELL THE CLINTONS?
Gen Libra voters are fixated on love, romance, adultery, love triangles, sexism, equality, relationship drama, marriage saga and the ultimate issue of justice. Guess who’s going to push their buttons in 2016? Bill Clinton can become an election plus in his wife’s campaign by delivering the speech or interview that proves – he owes her – and he still loves her. Happy ending required.
Is it going to be easy for him? Absolutely not. His personal horoscope tells us that. His private life is tremendously hard work in 2016 and 2017. Yet – Bill Clinton himself was born with a cluster of horoscope factors in Libra, the partnership sign, so if he’s ever going to complete his karma and pull off the Reborn Power Couple message – it’s 2016.
What else might an astrologer tell the Clintons? Remember, Generation Virgo (the fiftysomethings out there) is fixated on the body. If Mrs Clinton can become some kind of fitness or diet heroine to them, they’ll be thoroughly sold. This is the generation which gets more excited about body makeover shows than any other!
ELECTION WEEK HOROSCOPE PATTERNS
It’s all about Hilary for the media, with Mercury the Messenger in Scorpio, her sign, from Monday 7th November. She’s everywhere. On election day itself, Tuesday 8th November, and its aftermath, Wednesday 9th November, we find the Sun in Scorpio lined up perfectly with Hygeia in Scorpio. This is the asteroid of preventative medicine. It rules immunisation, hygiene (as the name suggests) and public health. If Hillary Clinton runs with the Obamacare message, and can persuade the American people on Benghazi, she’s going to win the 2016 Presidential Election. With a landslide? That depends on the ‘sale’ of the Bill partnership.
DOES HILLARY CLINTON USE AN ASTROLOGER?
Does Hillary Clinton use an astrologer? Or was it just an accident she used the Sagittarius logo for her 2016 campaign? The familiar arrow describes the centaur’s bow in the original Sagittarius symbol (see bottom of page). It also happens to sum up the final generation we need to look at, voting in this campaign – those crucial millions of people born with outer planets in Sagittarius. What’s their fixation? College education. They had it. It was their escape from the real world. And also their revolution. Sagittarius has always ruled students. Voters born with Uranus or Neptune in Sagittarius are fixated with education. This, too, is another Bernie Sanders message – he believes it should be free.

February 18th 1981 to March 20th 1981

NEPTUNE IN SAGITTARIUS VOTERS’ BIRTHDATES

November 6th 1970 to January 18th 1984
June 22nd 1984 to November 21st 1984
THE SAGITTARIAN ARROW AND THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN
As the Sagittarius generations (above) partly overlaps with the Libra generation of voters, this is a key demographic for Hillary Clinton to win over. Beyond their concern with college education, this generation has powerful feelings about the United States’ relationship with foreign countries and extremist foreign religion. Sagittarius has also ruled foreigners and beliefs, for centuries. The American horoscope tells us it’s a long, hard, difficult road with all this, September 2015 through 2017 and the Sagittarian generation will need to feel secure in an insecure world. In the end, it may well be this group of voters born with outer planets in both Libra and Sagittarius who swing seats.
Writing on 13th August 2015, I’m predicting that Hillary Clinton will become the U.S. President on November 8th, 2016 if she can turn Bill Clinton into an asset, lay Benghazi to rest and beat Virgo Bernie Sanders on Obamacare.
