A Revised Look at RNC 2020 and the Moon

Virtual Political Conventions 2020! Trump Accepts the Nomination

by Jude Cowell

A while back (pre-Covid-19) I posted two horoscopes showing the first days that DNC 2020 and RNC 2020 opened their conventions in Milwaukee, WI and Charlotte, NC respectively. Obviously the July DNC chart is now moot since their 2020 convention opens Monday August 17 and runs until Thursday August 20th with a New Moon @26Leo35 on Tuesday (10:42 pm edt) conjunct Trump's natal Mars (rising). Should we expect that Trump's actions (Mars) and tendencies toward retaliation and aggression (his Mars rising opposite US natal Moon, We the People) will be mentioned? Yes, I think so.

Now perhaps the RNC chart I posted for August 24, 2020 is moot as well, however, RNC 2020 is scheduled to open on that date with Trump accepting his party's nomination (if nothing changes) on Thursday August 27, 2020. Note that both conventions occur under the auspices of the Summer Solstice 2020 Eclipse themes of restraint, restrictions, separation (virtual! social distancing! logistics!), and illusions (politics!). See Road Closures and Security Blocks around Charlotte! And Politico reports on Trump's potential choices of venues around DC from which to hold parties and balls and deliver his acceptance speech - such as the White House, an unethical idea to say the least.

Beaming In to RNC 2020: So if we look at Thursday August 27, 2020, we find no lunations perfecting as during the DNC but we do find a few interesting aspects made by the fluctuating Moon which represents the public, the public mood, and publicity in mundane charts. As for the convention's beginning (which shows how it will end!) let's add that RNC 2020 begins August 24th with an excitement-craving Moon-Uranus opposition at 12:00 am edt suggesting potentials for strong anti-social feelings (and not just because of Covid-19 social distancing!), unusual or difficult people turning up, hidden or even occult interests, and/or a tendency to misjudge other people and their relationships. Note that times are Eastern:

Path of the Moon August 27th: RNC 2020

8:00 am edt: Moon in Sag trines Mars in Aries (an echo of Trump's natal Moon-Mars trine) denoting self-confidence, courage, and a talent for easily recognizing and grasping opportunities--traits he's used in the past (SN). Karmically speaking, both Moon and Mars are in Nodal Degree (26). Yet Luna's conjunction with her own transiting South Node indicates such things as bad timing and/or lack of popularity especially among women for it contains a depressive, oppressive Moon-Saturn tinge which, on the positive side, may also denote ambition and strategy. Opposing Moon-SN in Trump's natal chart, of course, is his Sun-North-Node conjunction along with his radical Uranus (his chaotic guiding planet) so that his natal Sun Gemini-Moon Sagittarius personality blend is spotlighted--that of "The Pied Piper" (the Harveys's "Image for Integration"). And that he certainly is. For some percentage of Americans, at least. Such folk may wish to consider how that ancient tale ended because parents lost their children, thanks to the Pied Piper.

Meanwhile, after her trine with Mars, Luna goes Void Of Course (so that nothing can interfere with the proceedings - or, there could be unexpected outcomes) making no more aspects from Sagittarius until she enters Capricorn at 1:37 pm, from whence she will proceed to engage. Mood-wise, a Sag Moon suggests a Jupiterian flavor to RNC 2020, even happiness, while a Saturn-ruled Capricorn Moon, not so much. More like Luna takes on a down-to-business tone as RNC 2020 closes and Trump accepts the nomination which is most likely shown by the fact that at 11:09 pm edt, Moon (the public) and Sun (the leader) form a trine (120 degr) signifying a harmonious blending of energies via mutual purpose - to continue implementing Trump's dystopian "American Carnage" vision of an authoritarian nation. Trump and his wealthy backers demand a shift of government and power which will (I predict) not turn out to be the smooth lifestyles and grand improvements his easily-led supporters have been promised by what amounts to a demagoguing snake oil salesman luring America to her collapse.

Please Note: due to the confusion surrounding RNC dates and locations this year there is at least one source giving the RNC opening date as August 21st. Whether a Friday would be the choice of the Republican Party or of Trump, then running through the weekend, I know not but for now I shall leave this post intact, as is. For if the dates herein turn out to be wrong, I don't wanna be right. jc
