he’s so weak; he could get lucky and land a punch. Venus is applying to a trine with Uranus in the First House, and Trump may score some points with unexpected personal attacks on Clinton.
Next, let’s see how Clinton views the prize: the Presidency.
The Midheaven of Clinton’s nomination chart is 3°27 Capricorn, so Saturn represents the prize.
Saturn is retrograde in Sagittarius. It’s peregrine, so it’s damaged. And it’s also conjunct the  xed star Antares. Antares is in the heart of the constellation of Scorpio, and it’s associated with destruction
and malevolence, as well as rash, headstrong activity. It’s often linked to stubborn and self-destructive behavior. To Clinton, the Presidency will be very hard work, and  lled
with challenges.
 ere’s no connection between
Saturn (the prize) and Mars (Clinton), at least not yet.  ey are both in the Eighth House of the chart, and with Saturn retrograde and Mars direct, they’re moving towards each other. And they’ll
meet up. Eventually. But it won’t be easy.
Mars and Saturn don’t come together until Mars moves out of Scorpio and into Sagittarius.

uphill climb.
It’s fortunate that Clinton doesn’t have to worry about having enough money to run her campaign.
Donors will line up to fund the campaign ... in exchange for in uence.
Taurus is on the cusp of the Second House, so Venus in Leo represents the  nances of the campaign. We’ve
already seen that Venus is peregrine, so it’s not in great shape. If they stick to a budget, there’s probably enough money.  e real issue is that the campaign money is in the Fifth House of bribery and in uence. Clinton’s donors expect a return on their investment.
 e Part of Fortune in Gemini is in the Second House, which helps Clinton’s  nances because it shows there’s money in her co ers. But
