John McCain: Is the Presidency Written in His Stars?



We've been looking at what the planet and stars predict for the 2008 Presidential candidates. Today we're going to look at what several astrologers predict for Senator McCain's chances of getting elected our next President.






In a report written on April 23, 2006, by Astro Future Trends, astrologer Phillip Brown, M.A., notes that the last Virgo to occupy the Whitehouse was Lyndon Baines Johnson.
The last Virgo to occupy the White House was Lyndon Johnson, a former senator who made his reputation as a very down-to-earth and real-world politician. LBJ knew how to pull the levers of power but became lost in micro-managing the Vietnam War.
Brown takes note of McCain's 11th House, which he refers to as a "political house", and at Mercury, the planet of communication.
McCain's Virgo Sun is in the 11th house, a political house associated with the air sign Aquarius. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, a communication planet. McCain's rising sign is Libra, an air sign. However, both his Sun and Moon are in earth signs (his Moon's in Capricorn), so in a lot of ways McCain is more into what works than what's open. He's very grounded and smart about political strategy. Mercury is his only planet in an air sign (Libra). Mercury being a singleton in an air sign would ordinarily indicate difficulty in getting perspective with communication, but McCain has a Libra rising sign to support his Mercury. He does seem to enjoy communicating in an open give-and-take forum much more than Bush (Bush's Mercury is in Leo) and this came out in his speech to union members, despite the natural antagonism of his audience.
Brown's prediction for November 4th, the 2008 Election Day:
On election day 2008, McCain will experience an interesting confluence of astrological factors. His Saturn-Neptune opposition will be conjuncted by the Saturn-Uranus election opposition. His natal Moon is at the same position (27° Capricorn) as the U.S. horoscope Pluto. The next President will lead the nation as Pluto enters Capricorn, a perilous time. McCain’s lunar north node—karmic destiny—is at 1°of Capricorn, and Pluto will also be at exactly 1°of Capricorn when the new president is sworn in to office in January, 2009.
Brown's prediction, made in 2006, refers to a Saturn-Neptune opposition "conjuncted by the Saturn-Uranus election opposition". We're not astrologers so we're not sure what this means other than it sounds ominous.

John McCain's 2008 Election Day Forecast from The Strange House:


Saturn Opposite Saturn applying (effort confronts effort)
Your life now reaches one of its built-in check points. You are "graded" by reality. Past efforts and plans culminate. Prior diligence rewards you with recognition and responsibility; past negligence brings restriction or disgrace.

Uranus Opposite Neptune applying (freedom confronts impression)
Delusions and eccentricity may make you your own worst enemy. Travel may offer unexpected trouble. Using drugs and alcohol may create problems.

McCain’s birth chart (8/29/36; Balboa Heights, Panama; 9 AM) suggests that his immense popularity of recent years may soon be on the wane. In 2005, transiting Pluto was square to his Venus, giving him an intense emotional appeal and charisma. In 2006, converse Mars was conjunct converse Venus, another aspect likely to confer a strong appeal and attractiveness. As of late January 2007, however, the Mars/Venus aspect begins to wane, while progressed Venus begins to move into a square with natal Saturn through October 2007. In his natal chart, McCain has a rather close Venus/Saturn opposition, and any progressed aspect between them will be felt quite strongly. It seems quite likely that this 2007 Venus/Saturn square will greatly diminish McCain’s popularity, as well as limit his political options significantly.

By late October 2007, transiting Saturn will move into the first of three conjunctions to McCain’s natal Sun (6Virgo02). The second will be in February 2008, and the third will be in July 2008. The addition of progressed Moon opposite natal Saturn from January 7 through February 7, 2008, suggests quite strongly that McCain will be unlikely to win his party’s nomination for president. Moreover, the transits of Uranus on his natal 6th house Saturn and Saturn opposite his natal Saturn (20Pisces09) at the end of 2008 and in early 2009 suggest he will not be happy with the results of the 2008 election and that he may be dealing with health problems (6th house) around that time as well.

Astro Future Trends doesn’t come out with a prediction on whether McCain will or will not succeed but warns about the placement of McCain’s planets on Nov. 4th.

On Election Day 2008, McCain will experience an interesting confluence of astrological factors. His Saturn-Neptune opposition will be conjuncted by the Saturn-Uranus election opposition. His natal Moon is at the same position (27° Capricorn) as the U.S. horoscope Pluto.
The Strange House’s prediction for John McCain on Nov. 4th refers to “ominous” planet shenanigans:

Saturn Opposite Saturn applying (effort confronts effort)
Your life now reaches one of its built-in check points. You are "graded" by reality. Past efforts and plans culminate. Prior diligence rewards you with recognition and responsibility; past negligence brings restriction or disgrace.

Uranus Opposite Neptune applying (freedom confronts impression). Delusions and eccentricity may make you your own worst enemy. Travel may offer unexpected trouble. Using drugs and alcohol may create problems.
Nancy’s Blog writes that Saturn, the bummer planet, (our definition of Saturn), will move into conjunction with Virgo, McCain’s natal Sun. This will occur in Feb. and also in July. Nancy’s Blog writes that a “progressed Moon opposite natal Saturn” from January 7th through February 7th suggests McCain will be “unlikely to win his party’s nomination”.

McCain’s New Hampshire Primary win came on January 8th. Nancy’s Blog predicts a waning of support for McCain beginning January 7th through February 7th. We’ll see if this prediction holds true on Super Tuesday, February 5th, where 24 states hold caucuses or primaries.

As always, these are predictions based on astrology.

Time will tell if the stars and planets hold John McCain’s dream of becoming our next President.
