Please bear in mind that this article is NOT to be construed as a political statement, and I’m choosing to be strictly non-partisan with my comments. If you believe I’m “taking sides”, that will be your conclusion, but it is other than my intent.
I have to agree with and give credit to numerologist and trends analyst Gail Minogue who assesses our current Presidential race as a clash of two cultures: The Piscean age spanned the last two thousand years and was characterized by the dominion of a male patriarchy –in the guise of religious leaders, dictators, tyrants and other rulers who subjugated women as objects who were denied power over their own lives and were commanded to do the bidding of their male overlords.
Now newly emerging in this second millennium we have the Aquarian Age which brings with it the return of women to their natural power as peacekeepers and bringers of harmony and wisdom.
As one culture wanes and another begins its birth, we have this interim time where – for all the world to see – male and female, matriarch and patriarch, Mars and Venue, yin and yang are vying for supremacy. It is with perfect synchronicity that the campaign controversies are taking place during the astrological sign of Libra which rules relationships. If you take the stand that there are no cosmic accidents, Hillary Clinton’s Three Life Purpose Number is symbolic of the Tarot card called “The Empress”, and Donald Trump’s Four Life Purpose Number is symbolic of “The Emperor.” How’s that for wild synchronicity?
I believe that most of us in this country and even in the world want the same things: peace, safety and equality in our homes and communities, loving relationships, fulfilling livelihoods, money in the bank and health and well being for ourselves and our loved ones We differ on our views of how these things should be achieved.
From a numerology standpoint, Donald Trump has the more challenging set of numbers for this year. He’s in an Eleven personal year which, as an advantage for him, puts him in the spotlight. However, Eleven is a number of master tests, especially regarding relationships, which is certainly evident in the current events of his life. Mr. Trump also has major challenge from the many 7’s in his numerology chart. He’s here for a re-do of spiritual tests. In addition, once he began his seventh decade on June 14, he came under the influence of a 16/7 peak power period which pitched him into a situation of having to reinvent himself and his life due to external circumstances over which he has no control. This number can at times be interpreted as “a fall from grace.”
Those who have Seven prominent in their charts often are misunderstood by others and misunderstand others as well. Clear communication can be a major challenge. Seven bestows idealism, but needs to work with practical realists to bring ideas to fruition. On the plus side, those with strong Seven influence excel at mental analysis and intuitive perception. There is a serious contemplative side to Mr. Trump that is not likely to be seen by the public or perhaps not even by those close to him personally. He is also highly psychic and visionary.
Hillary Clinton completes her powerful 44/8 Personal Year cycle upon reaching her birthday on October 26. Thereafter, she is fully engaged in her 45/9 Personal Year. Nine is her Maturity Number and demands that she be on a path that serves the well being of humanity in one way or another. She has been under the influence of her Nine Maturity for a good number of years. Her Nine Personal year raises the bar on her path of serving the public good and brings with it many tests of character.
Secretary Clinton’s natal numerology chart is dominated by the Number Three, the number of creative expression. In fact, she’s here for a re-do of mastering this quality. All the Three’s in her chart make it mandatory that she express herself on a continuing basis.
Those who have Three so prominently in their charts are ”talkers” – and usually very articulate, magnetic and convincing in what they have to say. They can come across as very credible even if their content turns out to be fabricated. They have enormous powers of persuasion which is why many with these numbers end up being actors or media personalities.
It is interesting to me personally that Secretary Clinton is now paired for the second time with a man who is publicly accused of using his position of power to victimize and sexually prey on women. This must be some form of “karmic test” that was scripted for her to deal with. Although previously as First Lady she “stood by her man” as President Clinton’s actions as a sexual predator were brought to light, she now, of course, is openly critical of Donald Trump’s video expose' – which places her in the position of retroactively criticizing her husband as well.
Although both of our candidates take a stand on any number of issues regarding our nation’s economy and citizen safety and welfare, if we look beyond these issues, we have a core issue emerging that will continue regardless of who wins the election and what laws and policies ensure.
During this point in history, men are being challenged to connect with and honor their feminine selves (or their hearts, if you will.) Women are being motivated to stand up for themselves as independent leaders who are decisive and strong in their personal power.
This will be done eventually on a world-wide scale. We’re just in the beginning stages of waking up. When there are big shifts in cultures and consciousness as we are now experiencing, things can and do get messy and chaotic. What the current Presidential candidates are doing which is beneficial in the long run is creating public awareness of issues which need reform, thus reversing a long-standing trend of passivity and non-involvement from many of the citizens of this country.
Those who run for office are a reflection of their culture’s beliefs and habits both individually and collectively. Regardless of how you vote, if you and I take steps to bring balance to our male/female selves (our yin and yang) we will be making a contribution to a world where peace, harmony and justice reign along with respect for all who inhabit this planet.
However you vote, listen to your heart and envision a country and world that reflect your core values. Remember we are in transition – and you can help in getting us to a state of completion through your personal thoughts and deeds even though this is likely to take a good number of years to accomplish.
