They called the election result, what happens now?
I just watched Kamala Harris and Joe Biden speak, as the Mayor of Paris tweeted – Welcome back America! This is about so much more than changing who lives in the White House!
So what can we expect to happen next?
Finding A New Pathway
Uranus is in the Gate of Returning (24) – returning to the source to find a new path, to restore us to a better way. Mercury is in Gate 50, which represents the beginning of a new era. And Jupiter/Saturn conjunct is hovering over us, heralding a new kind of governance.
The Moon was sitting right on the North Node (destiny, future) of the USA chart, in Gate 31 – Influence. This is a steadying, heartfelt influence that inspires us to make room in our lives for change, to be open and allow space to be influenced by events.

View: Transit chart for the time the result was called – 11am 7 Nov 2020 EST (4pm UT).
This feels so big not just because of the division, the toxicity evoked, the pandemic sitting on everything. But also because we are beginning a new 1000 year cycle.
The immediate future holds challenges. We have to find our feet on this new ground. We will make mistakes. There will be chaos as a new kind of humanity emerges. But a watershed is being passed today, and in the next few months.
You can read about the important dates here.
In the USA, between now and 20 January 2021, there is a fraught transition period. On that very day Mars is conjunct Uranus in Gate 27 line 6:
Nourished by ancient virtue, you can find your own pathway again, make new commitments, explore new territory.
But we have a few stages to go through before we get there.
Although Mars usually spends about 10 days in each gate, it will be in the Gate of Shock (51) till 15 December. This is radical change creating shock waves. We can’t stop the process, our best approach is to keep anchoring into harmony.

Mars is instrumental to what’s happening at the moment. He next moves to Gate 42 (Increase), where he joins dwarf planet Eris. This gate activates Pluto and Saturn and potentially brings a huge shift in understanding our personal and collective power. We can’t just put systems on autopilot. There’s no such thing, and someone will take control if we don’t. Voting every 4 years isn’t enough to uphold democracy, decency and fairness. We have to engage with the system every day.
Creating A New More Caring Culture
On 28 November Uranus moves back to the Gate of Nourishment and stays there till 2 March 2021.
This is not only what you eat, but all the processes and structures that sustain nourishment – physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual nourishment. These are the structures that support and shape you.From Hilary Barrett I Ching
Haumea is in the adjoining Gate 50. I can describe this channel as simply – creating a new more caring culture. But it’s more than that, because this time is so much more significant than one simple transit. Haumea is about re-generation. She is about passing on the baton to a new generation, how we generate energy, bio-mimicry and working sustainably with nature at all levels including the cosmic.
Gate 50 brings the stable robust foundations for a new life, a transformation that affects each one of us personally, creating the energy for a re-generation of culture.
What Happens at the Beginning of Things
Which brings us back to where we started – the difficulties we face at the beginning of new things. Gate 50 is complementary to Gate 3. In Genekeys terms they are programming partners, because they are astrologically opposite.
Saturn has just shifted into Gate 60, making a channel with Gate 3. The profoundly important Saturn/Jupiter conjunct will happen in Gate 60.5 on 20 December.
Remember how I said that when the networks announced the result at 11am EST on 7 November 2020, Mercury was in Gate 50?
Both Biden and Harris have Gate 3 – Difficulty at the Beginning. This is a gate of breaking through into an unknown new world, everything is supportive and it’s time to explore possibilities with an awareness of the danger of the times. Everyone has to be involved, playing their part. It is chaotic, profusive, calling you out into a new world.
Because they have Gate 3, these two people know how to navigate dangerous times with prudence.
With his Sun conjunct Venus, Biden is all about relationships and values. His Moon in Gate 3 will see him through the transition period – in line 5: a loyalty to the open innovative spirit of the times, finding the lines of least resistance through intelligent sensitivity to the environment, implementing the ideal, finding the way through.
His Design Sun is in the Gate of the Abyss (29), which is another of the gates that demonstrate an ability to move well through dangerous times, being effective, not ‘alerting the guards’ and bringing a negative response.
When Neptune shifts into Gate 36 in May 2021, Biden will be steady, with his Saturn in the 35.
Harris has her Sun and Mercury in Gate 50, and her Earth and Moon in Gate 3 (a Full Moon baby!) she is all about the transition, innovation and empowering the individual through a more caring community.
Gate 50 line 2 says that the negativity of others can’t affect her. Gate 3 line 2 says she gets things done through partnering with others.
Despite a huge turnout and more than 70 million votes, Trump lost his bid for a second term as President. The first thing I noticed was, there were no real connections with his chart in the last week or so, other than his Moon and South Node (past, karma) in Gate 26. This is the gate underpinning the fundamental shifts we are experiencing – a movement away from material and financial accumulation towards a more virtuous and relationship oriented way of being.
Neptune is activating Trump’s Sun in the Gate of Blockages. People with this gate are skilled at working through blockages and Trump certainly proves that! But Neptune can indicate difficulty connecting with reality and right now Trump needs to accept that he lost the election, a “blockage” he can’t work through in ways he is accustomed to. He will be patient, waiting to see what he can make of the situation, so don’t expect him to go quietly!
His Holographic Moon is in Gate 42 line 6:
You are only interested in what you can receive, and not in giving, so you don’t invest yourself reliably in relationships. You are likely to attract hostility and misfortune, and to let yourself and others down.Hilary Barrett I Ching, 42 line 6
It’s so interesting that his Holographic Moon is about to move into …. wait for it ….. Gate 3! With Uranus activating Haumea in Gate 50 from 28 November till 2 March 2021, Mars and Uranus will be conjunct in this matrix on 20 January, inauguration day, and the Saturn/Jupiter conjunct coming up, this is clearly where the action is!
What About You??
That’s all very well, but what about the most important person – you!
On a personal level, this is a time of great change, requiring persistence and an ability to move with the flow of synchronicity rather than forcing inauthentic outcomes. With Saturn and (from 2 December) Jupiter in the Gate of Limitations we are learning to move with the natural order, to find a sustainable pathway that, paradoxically, leads to a fuller participation in the flow of life.
You will be feeling a strong desire to regenerate, to make your life fit you in according to your own unique requirements.
Neptune continues to keep us quietly at home, contemplating our navels and finding more authentic ways to relate to ourselves and others. It has a huge role to play in the Coronavirus, which will begin to wane around February 2021.
Don’t expect things to change quickly, it’s still a day by day proposition just now, as we pick our way through the old and weave in the new.
