Hello again, Obama

Whilst Sarkozy is not popular in France; neither is Obama popular in the USA.  Republicans hate him; never have the States been so divided. But even many Democrats are bitterly disappointed in him, saying he has caved in to Republican demands and watered down Democrat policies, social, environmental and political. This deep disappointment in Obama has always been on the agenda, for, with his Sun square Neptune, he has always embodied impossible hopes.  But it is unlikely that he is weak either, for Saturn, the ruler of his Aquarian ascendant, is strong in Capricorn, and his Sun is strong in Leo. But the Sun in the 6th house shows a man motivated to tone down ego needs to make work go smoothly, and his Saturn trine Mars in Virgo, is very, very pragmatic. He is obviously supremely intelligent, with Moon in Gemini sextile Mercury on the one hand and trine Jupiter on the other. But the fact that Moon is in Gemini in the 4th house of home and country, and square Pluto reflects not only his split childhood, where is grandmother looked after him more than his mother, but also the polarized country that he rules.

Goodbye Sarkozy

In many ways historical periods are defined by the men and women who lead them. In making predictions about which of these leaders will be elected, the trick is to find resonance between the planetary positions of these leaders and the planetary movements of the period.  A prerequisite for leadership is also resonance between the horoscope of the leader and the horoscope of the country or organization. George W Bush had his sun at 13 Cancer right on the USA sun. When the USA celebrated Independence Day, Bush celebrated his birthday.  There will always be some resonance. For example Obama has his Venus at 1.47 Cancer, whilst theUSAhas Venus at 3.06 Cancer… just one of the many contacts between the president and his country.  Economically USA lurched from one crisis to another as Pluto opposed and Uranus squared this Venus from 2010 – 2011, and this has naturally brought Obama’s economic management into the firing line too.

NAUGHTY MEN – Part II : Strauss-Kahn

Whilst we can be sure that Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back despite his love child with the family maid, things look a bit more worrying for Dominique Strauss-Kahn who was arrested under humiliating circumstances for allegedly forcing sex on a hotel maid. He was escorted off a plane to Paris on Saturday 14th May, handcuffed and interrogated by New York police, imprisoned and presented in court on the following money and sent back to the notorious Rikers Island jail immediately afterwards. Two weeks would go by before he was given bail, which means he is confined to a New York apartment and has to wear an electronic bracelet and finance a security company to guard him and re-arrest if necessary.

NAUGHTY MEN – Part I : Schwarzenegger

By now it is well known that women come from Venus and men from Mars. Despite the attempted reversals or homogenization of male and female roles in the 1970’s,
when Uranus and Pluto transited the relationship sign of Libra, experience has
shown that little boys like guns and little girls don’t. Big girls are generally not attracted to men who are soft and dependent, whilst big boys go for beauty rather than muscle. That is the way of Venus and Mars, which are universal gender organizing principles for humanity. And whilst we may lament hat vast sums of money are spent by governments on military hardware, it is interesting to ponder on the fact that equal sums of money are spent on the fashion and beauty industry.

Crisis and transformation – Pluto transiting the angles

In September 2006 Pluto was demoted to dwarf planet status by a scientific conference in the Czech Republic, which put it on a par with Ceres, the largest asteroid discovered in 1800 and considered for many years to be a planet. I don’t know whether Pluto was offended or not, but it certainly made an impact, when it moved into Capricorn in 2008. By September of that year Lehman Brothers crashed along with the whole of the American economy. Three years later the economies of the western world are still in crisis with whole nations – Greece, Portugal, Spain – teetering on the brink of the abyss. Vast unemployment has been the result, and huge bailouts of major industries and banks have exposed the power gap between the rich and privileged and the ordinary citizen. Pluto in Capricorn rules, right? Read More
