The potential candidates for the 2016 Presidential Election when some astrologers began to predict the outcome.
Whatever he may say in public, in private, he’s terri ed. Yes, a loss would be a blow to his ego, but in the long run, subjectively, Trump will pro t the most from not winning the election. An objective loss will be a subjective win for him.
You can’t answer these kinds of objective question by looking at natal charts. To answer objective questions, you need to consider an event chart. But it’s still not that simple.  e election is actually a series of events.
