Being a cancer survivor means remission not cure. For a man that is 72 years old (the average life expectancy being 77 but lets face it McCain has had more than his fair share of health crisis in the past.
In Feb/March of 2009, not far into his potential presidency, McCain will face some extremely challenging health aspects. In August he had Uranus opposing his Venus which is when he found his soul mate in Sarah Palin out of the blue. Back to the issue, it will start (signs of this have probably already started and perhaps he knows something we don’t) when Uranus conjuncts his Saturn in the 6th (house of health). He naturally has health issues, chronic in nature that flare up from time to time, probably from stress. But this will hit him hard and oppose his Venus in the 12th (Venus rules his chart) making him look visibly ill. Pluto, we all should know about Pluto at this point — death, rebirth, sex, a hard core nasty when it hits you — will be squaring his Mercury, giving signs of speech trouble and an inability to concentrate. This aspect has been coming and going for a while which is probably why he has gotten so inept at reading from a tele-prompter. Mercury rules his Sun, Venus and his 12th house of death. This really isn’t good for a 72 year old cancer survivor.
One can never really predict death via astrology, but we can see health troubles, and it looks like he’s in for some seriously bad health early into his administration, so bad it could be fatal. Saturn (the great malefic) is also reeking havoc as it has hit his Neptune (loss and in his case rules his house of health) and then moves over his Venus, his chart ruler and then his Mercury. All in all it doesn’t look good for John McCain’s health and I wouldn’t be surprised if his body gave out early in his administration.
This is why it is imperative to look at Sarah Palin because she would inherit the throne. In her we would see an administration like Bush’s only much worse. I hate to use what some would think of as hyperbole, but in this case it’s actually not, she’s Hitler in high heels. Her chart is more akin to a dictator than a president. Actually, there has never been a president with the kind of chart she has with so much weight on fixed signs and air. Being an Aquarian is generally a pretty good thing, as most have humanitarian urges, but in her case all this is in the 7th (meaning it’s projected onto her partners) and we see an ego run amok with a weak Sun in the 7th with Leo rising. Seriously, she has no ability for details, shades of gray or anything, but absolutes.
Aquarians also like to buck the system which can be good if they have good intentions. Unfortunately, in Palin’s case it’s not that she has bad intentions, its just that she doesn’t have clear, intelligent, fair, balanced and wise judgement. She’d likely to veto bills just because. She’d shred the constitution if she could get away with it and being that we’re half way there, it’s not that out of the question. She’ll let a witch hunter pray over her if she can win. She’s irrational, self absorbed and a “know it all” — not good. Not good at all. And believe me I want to see a woman in the white house more than you could ever know, but not one that would throw us back into the dark ages.
