Sun’s Libra ingress and 2016 U.S. presidential election

Henry Coley (note1) introduces us two different methods of the Sun’s ingress.

One is the doctrine of Ptolemy . That is erecting  for every year ,figures for the Sun’s ingress into the four cardinal points, Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn as also the new or full Moon preceding and succeeding the sun’s ingress into the same signs.

Henry Coley thought it was most rational .

Another is followed by Haly and Guido Bonatti. The methods is If at the Sun’s ingress into Aries, the ascendant shall be a fixed sign, then that figure shall serve for the judgment of the whole year, but if the ascendant be a common sign, the revolution figure shall continue but half a year and end at the Sun’s entrance into Libra, for which moment another scheme shall be erected for the other half year, but if the ascendant be a moveable sign at the Sun’s ingress into Aries, then that revolution figure shall be of force but till the Sun enters Cancer, and new schemes are to be erected for the otter three quarters of the year.

William Lilly followed this methods in his almanacs.

The United States presidential election of 2016, scheduled for Tuesday, November 8, 2016, and the ascendent of the Sun’s Aries ingress is Sagittarius, a common sign , therefore no matter which methods you accept ,the figure of the Sun’s ingress into Libra is our main reference for this presidential election.




Find the lord of the year.

I’m following Henry’s method which is learnt from Ptolemy. Examine which planet has the most dignities in the ascendant ,mid-heaven, and the signs of the Luminaries in each of the three aforesaid figures.

Here, we get Mars and Mercury and because Mars rules the ascendant in the Sun’s Libra ingress, so he is the first lord of year, and Mercury is the second one.

According to Lilly’s planetary dignities sheet, Mars gets 13 points and Mercury gets 19 points. Mercury is stronger than Mars in slight difference and both of they are relatively strong.

And referring to Henry,

Mars generally signifies all martial and military affairs , wars, contention, firing of houses, bombing, murders, theft,robber, pirate etc.

If he is the lord of the year ,and powerful and free from affliction. It portend much felicity and prosperity to all martial persons in General, soldiers will now be very successful, and perform many notable exploits and overcome their enemies and gain good esteem and honor thereby.

Mercury signifies all manner of study and science, also merchants ,treasurers, office secretaries, clerks, and copyist in general, philosophers, astronomers or astrologers, mathematicians , writers. It also signifies the discovery of all secret devices, and shows the investigation or discovery of all ingenious .

If he is the lord of the year and strong and free from affliction, it denotes much profit and good success to all persons addicted to learning and science, as mathematicians ,philosophers, poets, also to merchants and tradesmen etc. Men should be much addicted to the searching after new and curious inventions this year, and be prosperous therein .

The most significant contention in the next half year (note2) is the United States presidential election.

We have two main nominees, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

Hillary is represented by Mars

Hillary (note 3)served as the 67th United Sates Secretary of State from 2009 to 2013, which is a senior official of the federal government of the United States of America heading the U.S. Department of State, principally concerned with foreign policy and is considered to be the U.S. government’s equivalent of a Minister for Foreign Affairs. Since 2000, US foreign policy has been paying much attention to the fight against terrorism which is symbolized by Mars.

She is born October 26, 1947 under the Scorpio , which is ruled by Mars as well as the ascendent and dispositing the ruler of the ascendent in her nomination chart.

Donald is represented by Mercury.

Donald (note 4) is an an American businessman, television personality, author.

Mercury is the dispositor of the Sun in his natal chart, and the dispositor of the ruler of the ascendent in his nomination chart.

Mars is in conjunction with Saturn in the second house in the ingress chart , signifying financial difficulties in America, Low income, high prices ,high jobless rates, economic depression. Some helps come from overseas but they are inadequate.

In this situation ,most of Americans will be care about their victuals ,food and safe living condition and that is the first consideration of the incumbent political party. Common people are eager for a breath of fresh air and a new face in the government.

It is supported by the Sun in conjunction with Jupiter which is the ruler of the 2nd house , and Mercury is near the cusp of the 11th house and Mercury disposites the Moon and she disposites the part of fortune.

Mercury is exalted than Mars, he will win her and a little difference of their dignifies means the narrow gap of the number of their votes.

The latest penumbral lunar eclipse in Pisces conjunct to the moon in Hillary’s natal chart isn’t a good testimony for her. This eclipse isn’t visible in US. Something may happen secretly or in hidden parts. Pisces signifies phlegmatic, cold diseases, and those in the feet. The moon in Pisces also signifies thighs and feet part of the body.

note1: Henry Coley , the Key to the whole Art of the Astrology.

note2: A half year means from the Sun’s Aries ingress to his Libra ingress or from the Libra ingress to the coming Aries ingress.




French presidential election, 2017

The first round of the 2017 French presidential election is set to be held on 23 April 2017. Should no candidate win a majority, a run-off election between the top two candidates will be held on 7 May 2017.

Mars is the ruler of the year of 2017  in Paris.

Marine Le Pen doesn’t win the first round but she will win the run-off election.
I hope Emmanuel Macron will be elected president of French because he seems being able to bring peace to the French and Europe.

However, Mars is the ruler of the year of 2017 in Paris , which is Le Pen’s Almuten of a Figure.

Le Pen’s Mars is in antiscion with which is in the Fifth Republic of  France chart. And in the run-off chart , Venus has a strong reception with the Sun by exaltation and sign signifying a woman will get the power.

Therefore , it is more likely she will win the election.

because we have their birth date and time and suppose the data is correct,

Marine Le Pen, age 48 years


Ascendent in the Libra (the 1st sign or house).

Emmanuel Macron , age 39 years


Ascendent in the Aries (the 4th sign or house).

The Sun conjunction Mercury is an important indicator for their promotion in my view .

If calculate the directions of this aspect to Mid-heaven, we are able to find:

Data shows me , one peak of the promotion of Le Pen is during 1990 to 1992 year, and another peak of her promotion is during 2013 to 2016 year .

She practiced law beginning in 1992 (the protection of ascendent is in the Libra , which is supposed to happen before August )

And she was the first to announce her candidacy for the 2017 French presidential election on 8 April 2016. She has consistently maintained high popularity in polling figures: she is predicted to gather between 28% and 30% in the first round on 23 April 2017.

Emmanule Macron ,

He was a member of the Socialist Party (PS) from 2006 to 2009.

Around 1999 he worked as an editorial assistant to Paul Ricoeur, the French Protestant philosopher who was then writing his last major work La Mémoire, l’Histoire, l’Oubli. Macron worked mainly on the notes and the bibliography.

From 2012 to 2014, he served as deputy secretary-general of the Élysée, a senior role in President Hollande’s staff.

In August 2015, Macron stated that he was no longer a member of the PS and was now an Independent.


It is quite clear to me, the time turning point of 2017 year is more evident in Le Pen’s natal chart than in Macron’s .

2017 Year of Rooster

2017 year is chinese zodiac sign of  fire (丁)rooster( 酉).

丁 fire is Yin Fire and signifies the Moon, stars , candle light, light in the night.

Therefore, it also symbolizes human rationality,  enlightenment, foresight, spirit, psyche, subconscious, divine.

酉 gold is Yin gold and signifies jewels, small and sharp metal material like needles, fog or vapor.

Therefore, it  symbolized precious things, personal loyalty , honor and justice, but also conflicts, befuddlement, disorientation, dispirited, depression.

酉 also rules lungs, so we should beware of bad air, noxious gas, and all the disease belonging to lungs.

When 丁 meets 酉, signifies a light in fog ,which could help us to find the road or a hope in despair or small fire in snowy.

Saturn – Jupiter Conjunction in 2020

Dr.Benjamin Dykes in his work, Revolutions & history , Astrology of the World II , illustrates Mean Conjunction of Saturn – Jupiter ,which is different from their true degree conjunction, bases on the average length of each planet’s cycle in the Zodiac , that is the 12-year cycle of Jupiter and 29.4-year of Saturn return.

I think it is reasonable, since it keeps triplicity shift continuously and constantly. That also accepted by Guido Bonatti and William Lilly in their books.

In November 4, 2000, Saturn – Jupiter conjunction shifted to airy triplicity and the first sign was Gemini.

Catastrophe: heavy rain, cold and cloudy weather,  hurricane, tornado, landslide, collapse, shipwrecks, aeroplane accidents,mineral mishaps.

The conjunction of Mars and Saturn- Unsettled 2016 year.

The most significant celestial event in this year is the conjunction of Mars and Saturn in Sagittarius.

” If Saturn in conjunction with Mars badly ,it signifies the destruction of the standing of the wealthy and great men in the revolution ,who were in the division of Aries, leo and Sagittarius. ” (Bonatti)

” Abu Mashar said if he (Saturn) were oriental , it signifies the nearness of the wealthy from their regions, and if he were occidental ,it signifies battles between men (namely noble and great ones) and discords will fall between them.” (Bonatti)

” And if Mars were in Sagittarius, it signifies a war that is going to be in the western parts, and that there will be little power in those parts, and there will be an impediment and death in the habitations of those regions…” (Bonatti)

” And Abu Mashar said it Mars were in the human signs, like Gemini, Virgo, Libra, the last half of Sagittarius, and Aquarius, it signifies a multitude of wars and battles ,and that men will rise up against their own king.” (Bonatti)

“Sagittarius sign has a magnitude fixed star here, it is Antares, which was one of the four Royal stars of Persia in 3000 B.C, when as the watcher of the West it marked the Autumnal Equinox and signifies malevolence, destructiveness, liberality, fatality, and makes its natives rash, ravenous, headstrong and destructive to themselves by their own obstinacy. ” (Vivian Robson).

In Chinese astrology ,2016 year is fire money year, that is the 51st hexagram named zhen,  (Shao Yong 60 hexagrams) symbolized the thunder ,means shake , dramatic change.

During 2016 year , we have experienced together many unexpected changes and Regional Conflicts,suicide terrorist attacks, bombings ,  great fires.


Junuary 3 -Following the fallout caused by the execution of Nimr al-Nimr, Saudi Arabia ends its diplomatic relations with Iran.


Februnary 7- North Korea lunches a long-range rocket into space, violation multiple UN treaties and prompting condemnation from around the world.

September 9 – The government of North Korea conducts its fifth and reportedly biggest nuclear test. World leaders condemn the act, with the South calling it “maniacal recklessness”.

There are many event as earthquake,bombings , gun shootings, domestic conflicts ,great fires etc I don’t record and leave the job to readers.

From the previous omens and events, we can see the whole world especially in western part, is full of turbulent and unsafe atmosphere. The air is about to change.

Let’s back to 2016 U.S. Presidential Election. It seemed a handsome( he said it ) with soft and blond hair man seizes the chance that is people want to change the old system.

In its Sun’ s Aries ingress ,the conjunction of Mar and Saturn in the 1st house signifies general evil and impediment on the rustics and common people. In its Sun’s Libra ingress chart, the conjunction in the 2nd house signifies destruction of their substances and homes, the wealthy and magnates will be forgotten the people and will be reputed practically as being nothing . This is as the man who have claimed  that only the structural adjustment can revive the sluggish economy in USA.

No matter who will be the next American president and which party gets administration in the coming four years, the voices from the bottom of the pyramid should be heard, and the issue of national strength enhancement can not be avoided otherwise angry ,enmity ,and fear raises as following as the conjunction of Mars and Saturn shows.

When will the next bus be here?

Last Wednesday, I was going to bank for opening an account, which was in other township, that meant I should take a bus.

About 8:44 a.m. I was waiting the bus at the station. This wasn’t a usual one I had taken so that I quite worried about its schedule. Seven minutes passed, the anxieties increased, then I asked a horary question.

” When will the next bus be here? ”

19th October 2016, 8:51a.m. (UT+8) 120e25 23n42

Asc= Sagittarius 3:30


Jupiter hours, and Sagittarius ascendent ,a perfect match and Jupiter in the 11th house signifying my hope, It seemed the short journey will  be going to eventually.

Some timing clues come to me.

Firstly, The Moon has 3 degrees to touch the cusp the 7th and meanwhile opposite to the cusp of ascendent . The bus would be here in 3 minutes. Such a excited news. It was proved nothing happened, even neither come another passenger, only me to fool myself.

How about when the moon touch the cusp the 7th authentically about at 9:03 a.m. Yes ,it was coming a bus but not the one I want to take. Oh…

Secondly, the other timing clue was that Saturn met the ascendent cusp authentically in 9:35 a.m. it didn’t come.  😦

I had a third timing clue ,but I decided not wait this bus anymore so I turned to other bus station and took other bus with different route at 9:44a.m fianlly.

Late of that day, I had known that bus had a special schedule, only four shifts a day and the final vehicle hour was 2:50p.m.  Driving me crazy!



It isn’t that annoying bus stop. 😀
