Michael Avenatti, the pugnacious lawyer who represents porn actress Stormy Daniels in her ongoing legal dispute with Donald Trump, says he’ll run against him in 2020 if he thinks there is no other candidate with a real chance of beating him.
Avenatti’s background is as an attorney and entrepreneur, a media regular, who in the past has represented high profile clients who made the international headlines. He is also a professional racing car driver.
He was born 16 February 1971 10.07 pm Sacramento, California, and has an attention-grabbing 5th house Aquarius Sun widely square Saturn in Taurus and inconjunct Pluto in the 12th. His Scorpio Moon opposes his Saturn – so he’s fixed and tough. He also has a crusading Mars in Sagittarius with a high-finance Jupiter Neptune conjunct in Sag as well in his financial 2nd.
His Sun opposes Trump’s Mars in Leo; his Mars opposes Trump’s Uranus and his midheaven is conjunct Trump’s Saturn Venus in Cancer – a competitive, combative, explosive interface with Avenatti’s career hitting Trump in his sensitive spot (unloved) Saturn in Cancer.
Their relationship chart shows an ongoing battle with tr Pluto square the composite Venus in 2018, the composite Mars in 2018/2019, then across midpoints onto square the Sun Mercury in 2021/22 – so a long drawn out and angry tussle.
He’s not in a great place at the moment, Avenatti, with a blocked Solar Arc Pluto opposition Saturn, exact in two months; and an undermining tr Neptune square his Mars on and off till late 2019. He’ll have some reassuring moments this September/October and next April but otherwise not seeing his plans work as he had hoped. He’ll face a disaster or three from May 2020 onwards; but he’s also looking elated over the election itself with tr Uranus opposing his Jupiter/Uranus midpoint. It seems unlikely he’d run with no political experience. But something is going right for him on the night.
