Expect some fire because transiting Mars is conjunct his progressed Mars in the 9th. The 9th house, remember, is the house of spiritual searching. As I said, expect a fiery preacher-like speech. One that will set the convention hall, and hopefully those beyond, on fire. Mars is in Scorpio, a very spiritual sign.
Frankly this is a good time for alot of people to be making speeches, because the Sun is currently conjunct Mercury. That is a traditional placement for charisma and the ability to sway people with your words. For the President, this conjunction is in the 7th house, the house of intimate relations with others. His words will seem personal.
Speaking of the 7th, as I mentioned in a previous election day post, the President will have a lot of feminine energy there with his progressed Venus moving through. When he makes his Convention speech, there will be an extra dab of benefit because his Part of Fortune, that little karmic smile, will be right on his progressed Venus. As I said before, his appeal to women will be key, key, key to his success.
The one thing I hate to see and I even hate to put it out there in some way. However, in his 2nd house, the house of stability, safety and security, he has both retrograded Uranus,the quick change artist and retrograded Pallas transiting through. As I said before, Pallas is the warrior who takes up causes. This is a very dangerous time for the President I am so afraid to say. I have been saying to my friends that I believe he is going to win - and win bigger than the talking heads claim, but that this will trigger the lunatic fringe.
We all need to be putting positive energy his way to thwart any hateful acts...until these two get out of his 2nd which will be well after election day.
