We're doing a series of astrological predictions for the 2008 Presidential candidates. We decided to take a closer look at the winners of the Iowa Caucus, Mike Huckabee and Barack Obama. Yesterday we had several astrologer's "take" on Mike Huckabee's chances for being elected the next President.
Today we're focusing on Democrat Senator Barack Obama.
Obama's birthdate is August 4th which is Leo the Lion. Leo is ruled by the sun.
This prediction was up Jan 1, 2008 on My DD:
Leo (d.o.b. August 4)
Forecast: "A gift or two is in the day's cards for you, and it will likely come from your sweetie, who wants you to know how much brighter you make their world. Express your inner emotions, too - don't be afraid to have sticky sweet words come out of your mouth."
Meaning: Iowa will choose you to be her one and only. Start preparing a memorable victory speech.
He would have a Moon trine Jupiter, being born at 14:02. Moon trine Jupiter is very helpful on the way to the White House. Strategical thinking is a must for American presidents. His Saturn is 157.5 degrees away from the midpoint Mercury/Pluto. There are a number of indications for success:
Sun square Jupiter/Uranus
Mars semi square Sun/Mercury and Sun/Jupiter
Jupiter sesqui square Mars/Pluto
Pluto semi square Sun/Venus
Nodes square Mars/Jupiter
My conclusion (not knowing his HOB!) is that he is first of all a creative (fire and earth dominating) diplomat (Venus most prominent), who could be a (too) idealistic leader.
I think Obama has a good chance to become the next president or vice-president, given these data. But I would not bet on it, if I were you. Last time (Bush-Kerry) most of the astrologers had the wrong idea about the next president. And in this case we don't even know his HOB for sure.
A prediction from Astro Future Trends for Super Tuesday, Feb. 5:
Barack Obama: His Leo planets (Mercury, Sun, Uranus) will also be opposed by the Aquarius lineup on super-primary day, but not as closely as Clinton’s. Saturn will conjunct his Pluto. Pluto will be opposing his Venus, probably not such a good thing for a political candidate in the heat of an election.
From Blessed By The Stars:
Another interesting connection is Obama’s natal Neptune exactly conjunct the U.S. Scorpio ascendant. This bring his vision of equality to the forefront and prominent in the eyes of the American people. In addition, his natal Uranus, opposes the U.S. Moon exactly at 25º Aquarius indicating excitement, charisma, and the sudden skyrocketing to fame. Historically, a candidate must have a strong connection to the U.S. Moon to ensure their popular approval and to get elected. In early 2008, at the height of the Democratic primaries, Obama's progressed chart looks extremely favorable (progressed Jupiter conjunct the U.S. Pluto, as his progressed Sun trines the U.S. Pluto) for advancing his ambitions.
There you have it, several predictions from astrologers on Senator Obama's run for the Oval Office.
We wrote yesterday that astrology is perceived as some "wacky" New Age fad. In reality astrology was around well before astronomy. Both Gallileo and Copernicus were astrologers. That being said, astrology still remains unaccepted as a "science."
This quote from Carl Sagan sums it up, at least for us:
That we can now think of no mechanism for astrology is relevant but unconvincing. No mechanism was known, for example, for continental drift when it was proposed by Wegener. Nevertheless, we see that Wegener was right, and those who objected on the grounds of unavailable mechanism were wrong. Source - Astrology-ca
