So, Sanders, Clinton and Trump have emerged in the forefront of the current primary season, Of course, this political cycle has been filled with sudden, unexpected shifts, and that seems likely to continue. There are many political reasons why both the Dems and Republicans might each move into a brokered convention, and who knows what might happen, then? Of course, we're interested in hearing from you about the astrological tendencies which are playing out here, with these three candidates, and how these tendencies might help us make an educated guess about likely outcomes.
