Auspicious Electional Dates and Charts
- November 2 2015, around 6:40 a.m., just after sunrise, with 10° Scorpio rising. Mars is the ruler of the Ascendant, and it is located in Virgo in the 11th whole sign house along with Venus and Jupiter. Mars is now exchanging signs with Mercury, which is located in Scorpio in the 1st whole sign house. The Moon is in late Cancer in the 9th, applying to an out of sign square with Mercury, followed by a trine with Saturn.
- Similar charts on November 3, 4, and 5 around the same time just after sunrise, except now Venus and Jupiter are enclosing Mars again by a conjunction on each side, thus fortifying his position even further.
- November 13 2015, around 12:45 p.m., with mid-Aquarius rising. Saturn ruling the Ascendant, located in Sagittarius in the 11th whole sign house, conjunct the degree of the MC. The Moon is in Sagittarius as well, applying to a square with Jupiter in the 8th, with reception.
- November 17 at 12:30 p.m. with mid-Aquarius rising, similar to Nov 13, except now the Moon is in Aquarius in the 1st whole sign house, applying to a trine with Venus in Libra in the 9th.
- November 26 2015, around 1:00 p.m., with mid-Pisces rising. Jupiter is the ruler of the Ascendant, and it is located in Virgo in the 7th house in a day chart, in a mutual reception with Mercury in Sagittarius in the 10th. The Moon is in Gemini in the 4th, applying to a square with Jupiter.
- November 26 2015, around 4:25 p.m., with 2° Gemini rising, just before sunset. Mercury is the ruler of the Ascendant, and it is located in Sagittarius in the 7th house, in a mutual reception with Jupiter in Virgo in the 4th. The Moon is in Gemini in the 1st, applying to a trine with Venus in Libra in the 5th and a square with Jupiter. This would be a favorable chart for matters pertaining to relationships, partnership or even marriage, although the window of opportunity is kind of tight because you have to make sure that the election occurs after the Ascendant has moved into Gemini but before sunset. If the election were to occur after sunset then it would make Saturn more malefic, and you would not want it to be there in the 7th in a partnership chart by night. There is a better version of this chart on December 3, if you can wait a little bit.
