Susan Miller predicts how the 2020 presidential election will turn out and tells TooFab why November 8, 2016 was astrologically considered a bad day to vote.
Celebrity astrologer Susan Miller believes November 8, 2016 -- the day Donald Trump was elected President of the United States -- was astrologically "considered a bad day to do something important." She also doesn't think he'll be reelected in 2020.
"On the day of the election, I looked at it, and the moon -- which changes every two, two-and-a-half days -- was conjuct Neptune," Miller explained to TooFab during a recent interview. "Neptune is the fog... The problem is, when you're trying to think straight and the fog is all over the moon, I said to myself, 'Wow, people are voting on impressions and not reading the paper, not listening to news stories.'"
"And the same day, the moon was void," Miller added. "It's a lot like Mercury Retrograde, where communication gets garbled... And that's considered a bad day to do something important."
Although the astrology pioneer and founder of AstrologyZone.com told TooFab she tends to "stay away from politics" out of respect for her readers, she did say she would "go in a minute" if Trump ever invited her to the White House.
"No matter what my personal affiliations are, I would go and give him my whole heart," she said. "And if Mrs. [Hillary] Clinton called...I would give her my whole heart. That's what you need to do."
Miller made sure to drive home the point that she does not believe in predestination, particularly when it pertains to elections. "You can see talent, but we're the ones hiring the person," she said.
Last month, The New York Times reported that Miller predicted in early 2016 that Trump would "wobble and won't make it to the election." But Miller explained to TooFab that she actually made that prediction ahead of the Primary Election -- when there were 16 people in the running.
"Doing 16 charts is just so hard," said Miller, who writes for nine international magazines and AstrologyZone.com on top of creating original content for her app.
Miller said that, at the time, Trump had Saturn opposition the sun, a trait all Geminis share.
"With Saturn opposition the sun, you're really held accountable for everything you say," she explained. "So I thought the Access Hollywood [tape scandal] later would be very damaging, and it wasn't."
Regarding Trump winning the reelection in 2020, Miller said she didn't think it would be likely.
"We have a saying in astrology," she explained. "The 95-year-old woman -- no matter how good her chart is -- will not be picked for the lead in 'Swan Lake.' Even if she has a great career as a ballerina, it's not going to happen."
Now 72 years old, Trump was the oldest person ever elected President, and Miller said the "exhausting process" of campaigning would likely deter him from running again.
In the same NYT article, Miller also said in early 2016 that Hillary Clinton's "email scandal isn't resurfacing, and there won't be others."
"Email is ruled by Mercury, and her Mercury was not badly aspected in her chart," Miller explained. "The emails now look like kindergarten compared to everything else that's going on! I don't think that really affected her chances of winning."
One thing Miller said she did not have any inkling or knowledge of was Russia's interference with our 2016 election. She also said she, too, fell victim to Russian hacking.
"I had no idea that a foreign government could come in and do things to confuse us and to make us mad at each other," she said, adding that AstrologyZone.com experienced "the most sophisticated hack" she had ever seen.
"We were attacked by the Russians, along with 300,000 other sites," she said. "What they had done is put ads on top of [my regular ads], and the money -- when you clicked -- would go to them."
Since then, Miller has strengthened her firewall so she can continue to supply her 10.8 million readers with monthly horoscopes that can sometimes clock in at over 40,000 words. Miller's mission continues to be to offer her readers truthfulness, encouragement and advice according to the good or bad omens she sees in the planets.
