Barack Obama

According to the birth certificate posted online, Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961 at 7:24 PM in Honolulu, HI.  This gives him Aquarius Rising, Mercury, the Sun, and Uranus in Leo, Pluto and Mars in Virgo, the Moon in Gemini, Ceres in Taurus, Venus in Cancer, Saturn in Capricorn, and Jupiter in Aquarius.

 Aquarius Rising gives him the ability to relate to the average person despite his Ivy League background.  This, combined with his Moon in Gemini and his Leo planets, helps him connect with the public.  These planetary placements give him charm. 

His message of hope and change resonates in these difficult times.  Obama has the ability to say the right thing at the right time, yet is not afraid to mince words.  His most quoted statement is probably, "I am not opposed to wars, I am opposed to dumb wars." 

The Moon falling in the 4th house shows the strong impact of his early family life, especially the influence of his mother and maternal grandmother.  The Moon's difficult aspects to Pluto and Chiron show that his early life was not an easy one. 

Born to a Caucasian mother and a Kenyan father, Obama's parents separated when he was two years old and later divorced.  Obama only saw his father, who died in an automobile accident in 1982, once after the divorce.  His mother remarried an Indonesian man and the family moved to Indonesia in 1967.  In 1971 Obama returned to Honolulu to live with his maternal grandparents until he finished high school. 

Obama has Uranus, the North Node, Pluto, and Mars in the 7th house.  The 7th house reflects marital relationships and the type of person one marries.  With these planetary positions there is no doubt that Michelle Obama has a powerful influence on her husband. 

The August solar eclipse at 9 Leo conjoins Obama's Sun. Transiting Chiron will form a conjunction with Obama's Ascendant on September 1.  The South Node will conjunct his Sun in November.   Progressed Venus conjoins his North Node in October.  In November progressed Mercury forms a square to progressed Saturn, and in March, 2009, progressed Mars squares his progressed Saturn.  In March solar arc Mars conjoins Neptune.  The Saturn-Uranus opposition in November falls within 2 degrees from Obama's Mars.

This is a very hard election to predict, as both Obama and McCain have significant planetary placements indicating a possible win as well as danger to their physical well being.
