The more flamboyant side of my nature (Aries, Sagittarius and strong Uranus) wants to see change, and both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton certainly offer that. Donald Trump (Gemini) brings youth and great energy, but is it all just pomp and circumstance? Is there any real substance there? He's the candidate that generates the most enthusiasm though; he's got "it" as they say.
Hillary has a watery Scorpio-Pisces, Sun-Moon blend suggesting tremendous depth and determination, powerful emotions, and intuitive understanding. She controls by knowing. However, she has no planets in earth signs or earth houses in her chart. There is nothing grounding her or enabling her to turn her intuitive understanding, big dreams, and ideals into reality. She needs help in that department. And Saturn squares her Scorpio Ascendant, so even though (in my mind at least) she has a much better grasp on the important issues than Donald Trump, she comes across as cold and hard. This perhaps appears worse than it really is because it is contrasted so dramatically by Donald's presentation and charisma. She also has a Mars-Pluto conjunction in dramatic Leo broadly squaring her Ascendant suggesting a flair for the dramatic herself and re-emphasizing her tenacious (dare we say ruthless?) nature.
There is some debate over Hillary's birth time. I tend to agree with the 8 am (21 Scorpio Rising) chart. This puts transiting Saturn on her Midheaven on March 4th. It's time to reap what has been sown. Again with Saturn you get what you deserve, no more, no less. The goals she set and the foundation she laid 22 years ago when transiting Saturn was at the bottom of her chart (IC), will now bear the greatest fruit or failure. By the way, 22 years ago happens to be 1994: the midterm of Bill Clinton's first term, and exactly the year Hillary failed to get congressional support for the Clinton health care plan, her major initiative at that time. (At the midterm November 8th election of that year, transiting Saturn was conjunct Hillary's IC.)
During the upcoming Democratic National Convention (July 25-28), the transiting Sun will be on Hillary's Midheaven, and this suggests that she will be extremely visible during this time. Then on Election Day (November 8th) transiting Mars will be on her Ascendant-Mercury (10th ruler) conjunction suggesting a fight for sure, however I can't tell who she will be fighting with or what she will be fighting for.
Another interesting thing to note is that the solar arc Moon will be precisely on her Node during the Convention. Suggesting an extremely emotional time for her and also re-emphasizing her visibility (Moon symbolizes the public) during these days.
Another important transit for Hillary during this period is transiting Uranus conjunct her 4th house Moon (9th house ruler), this undoubtly implies fireworks and sudden change for her emotionally and within her family and domestic life. Transiting Uranus makes a retrograde station within minutes of her natal Moon in late June so perhaps there will be some fireworks then.
Perhaps the most disheartening transit of all is the transit of Neptune square her Ascendant-Mercury (MC ruler) and this will be within minutes of exact on November 4th. This transit, more than any other, suggests defeat and ego wipe out. Hard Neptune transits leave us feeling wiped out (even illness can occur), force us to surrender our egos, and can sometimes bring humiliating experiences. That said, Neptune can make us appear more glamorous and add glamour to our lives. But I just don't see how Hillary can win the Presidency with this transit active during the election in November. I really don't.
She's a tough cookie though, I think she'll keep fighting and surprise a lot of people.
