Vedic Astrologer Edith Hathaway's election analysis [View all]

Interesting stuff:

Long article worth the read. Here's a snip:

Rahu and Ketu represent change and the unexpected, and in Vedic mythology they are known by the mystical symbol of the serpent. A full nodal cycle lasts 18 years, in which Rahu and Ketu shift signs backwards in the zodiac every 18 months. Since eclipses usually occur in the signs where they are transiting, the nodes have an enormous impact on certain areas of life while they are in those signs and houses in the astrological chart, both for individuals and the collective.

Leo and Aquarius are fixed signs, and as a fire sign representing the Kshatriya (warrior) class, Leo also includes political leaders. Leo is the most royal of the three fire signs. Ruled by the Sun, Leo expresses leadership on so many levels that when Rahu (the foreigner, or the exotic one) enters the sign for 18 months, there may be sudden changes in royalty of various kinds, including political royalty; also, in how we view leadership, as whatever may have been unacceptable or quixotic in some way in the past is coming into prominence and finding greater acceptance.

Rahu and Ketu signify not only the foreigner but the outcast. By contrast, Jupiter is more traditional and conventional. So when Rahu conjoins Jupiter in an area of the zodiac related to both leadership and royalty, this indicates a changing of the guard that upsets previously held concepts, including by journalists (also Jupiter), especially establishment journalists. We see this in various ways, with the new importance of burgeoning social media in election politics, and with Donald Trumpís defiance of Fox News in the last week of Jan. 2016. Roger Ailes and Rupert Murdoch founded Fox News (i.e. GOP news) in Oct. 1996, and up until now it has ruled over Republican politics with an iron hand, including over the George W. Bush presidency, 2001-2009.

Tr. Jupiter remains in Leo through Aug. 12, 2016, conjoining Rahu in Leo for seven months. This covers the many U.S. presidential primary races from Feb. 1 to June 14, 2016 as well as the Republican and Democratic Party conventions, July 18-21 and July 25-28, 2016, respectively.
