Election Day Stars of Prediction
By Dikki-Jo Mullen
Sylvia DeLong, a well known astrologer in Central Florida who has now retired, has a long time technique for determining the outcome of Presidential elections. It was generally infallible in years past. She just took Jupiter as the ruler for the Republicans and Saturn for the Democrats and in a solar chart would call it correctly merely by looking at the planet closest to the MC, or 10th house cusp. However, I never asked her about reading the results of off year gubernatorial races. On Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014 the outcome of the hotly contested Florida’s governor’s race plus three important amendments will be decided. This past Tuesday, October 28, I was a guest speaker at the North Florida Astrological Association in Jacksonville. We looked at some of the horoscopes apropos to the race. D- Charlie Crist, R- Rick Scott, L- Adrian Wyllie, as well as the Florida Statehood chart and other political figures were studied.I felt that transit Jupiter in Leo over Crist’s Sun and his other natal placements in Leo would indicate a narrow win for him. The lunar transit (rules public opinion) in Aries afflicting Scott’s cardinal placements in Capricorn and Libra would prevent him (Scott, Sun in Sagittarius) from winning the race. Retrograde Uranus (rules a third party, The Libertarians) spells trouble for the Taurus, Wyllie, also Wyllie natal Taurus stellium is oppose Neptune at his birth and transit Saturn in Scorpio currently shows denial and delays for him, it activates the natal Taurus-Scorpio opposition. I do feel the conservatives will prevail in many other races, due to the elevated Jupiter on Nov.4. I just don’t see Amendment #2 getting passed. It deals with legalizing a drug. Neptune, ruler of drugs, is retrograde. Even though so many people in the metaphysical circles are supporting Amendment #2. Amendment #1 deals with ecology and preservation of wild habitat in Florida. Looking at the March 3, 1845 Statehood Chart, I thought the State’s Moon in Capricorn affected by the Capricorn Mars transit plus the Pluto in Capricorn in mutual reception with Saturn in Scorpio transit would get #1 passed. With Amendment #3, which is about the judicial appointments, I thought the eclipse in Aries/Libra might get that one defeated, plus the wide orb cardinal sign T-Square to Mercury in Libra (sign of the Scales- relates to law) looked like it would weaken Amendment 3. We also looked at Scorpio Pam Bondi’s chart and Gemini Marco Rubio’s, an NFAA club member brought Scorpio Hillary Clinton’s chart up too, I don’t see either Rubio or Clinton winning in 2016. But Maybe Aquarian Jeb Bush, Rand Paul or Scorpio Joe Biden? Well in a few days we’ll see how it all plays out. At least there will be no more awful political ads on TV for a while.
