War is here… now

Here’s my answer to a reader about Donald Trump and all that he represents:

Besides Donald Trump being a dangerous horrible idiot he’s also a narcissistic egomaniac. I think he really believes he could win the presidency because he’s a dangerously delusion person. Of course he would completely ruin this country if he were elected into office because he is about as diplomatic as a live grenade. Do I think he could win? Well all I have to say is Arnold Schwarzenegger. People seem to be in love with celebrity – we have replaced the pantheon of Gods and Goddesses with morons, narcissists and idiots. Perhaps we need the old religion which had more examples and pathways to the Great Spirit. Perhaps we yearn for connection through those who mirror us. Unfortunately if this is true we are in a very sad state.

We are currently in a class war – one that dates back to the blowing open of the gates – the Watergate era, followed by the first truly corporate president Ronald Reagan. I’m not sure Reagan knew the damage he was doing. I like to believe that he was hoodwinked by the right to be the spokesman of their (internal in terms of doing it inside the government) coo without really knowing he was. His son, whom I greatly respect, is primarily the reason I believe Ronald senior was most likely a descent man used (as so many middle and lower-income people are being used now) by the wealthy to advance a truly amoral agenda.

I always scoffed at the notion of “trickle down economics” firstly because I grew up in a very affluent neighborhood (that we didn’t belong in – we lived in a townhouse on social security checks and life insurance my father had bought years before his passing when I was 10). I knew the hearts and minds of the very wealthy in ways very few are privileged to know. I knew their children who espoused their values without the crust of age and experience to keep their real feelings and philosophies covered. I heard some of the most unimaginably amoral, immoral and hideous things said as common truths – social Darwinism was a given in the most extreme sense of that statement. There was no empathy for the underprivileged, only a social club that went into the ghetto to teach illiterate children as a sort of bait and switch to their true value system which was the belief that the wealthy are better – they deserve more, they are supreme and the poor are lazy, stupid and deserve what they get even if that means suffering and death. Hideous but absolutely true – many probably won’t believe me. In fact I know people won’t believe me because I’ve been telling people, friends, descent human beings this since I was entrenched in this bizarre world where people went to church on Sunday and then sucked the earth dry of every resource in order to hoard it for themselves. Yes, it is easier to fit a camel through the eye of a needle than a wealthy man into heaven. I saw this first hand.

The first stage of the war against the poor and middle class was to dismantle the unions. Sure some were bloated, some were corrupt but lest we forget what life was like before they existed – just pick up a book by Dickens and you’ll see clearly the way the rich like it. The civil war – a rich man’s war to keep their slaves, using the poor southerners via their racism and pride as a tool against their interest (living) to fight a war that only the wealthy truly had a stake in and only the wealthy benefited from – this is a perfect example of the way many of the wealthiest one percent would like to see our country go – if they could have slaves again, they’d do it in a heartbeat, hence the dismantling of the minimum wage, next it will be age restrictions for working if they get momentum on the wage issue.

There are two kinds of rich – old money or the idle rich as I like to call them, who do nothing but live off the achievement of some great, great, great, great, grandparent who actually contributed something to the world during their time and then invested the family money for generations to inherit. These idle rich hate the “Nuevo riche” the people who newly acquire money – meaning the people who actually earned the money they became wealthy from, the Bill Gates and the Steve Jobs of this world. You know the people who actually really produce jobs for regular folks, not the people who live off the fat left over from their (once common low to middle-class) ancestors. Those “old money” people spend their days taking care of themselves and their money, buying influence, protecting their interests and making sure they can make more money in the market. It’s interesting that they are usually the very same people who accuse poor people of being lazy when truly they have no purpose on this planet and are more akin to tics than human beings. They live off all of us who actually work and keep their world moving forward. The biggest way they contribute to the economy is through buying things, fancy furniture, fine art, clothing, etc.

Now here’s the thing. The 1960s was a very scary time for them, coming off the heels of the most financial growth of anytime during American history. The middle class grew to enormous proportions, the rich got richer as did everyone. You’d think that the wealthy would look upon the economy booming and love it because it means more money in their coffers. But with more money, more education came and people started asking questions. Why do we have to fight the communists in Vietnam? Isn’t that a sovereign nation with the right to decide its own fate? Riots took place, the left became extremely radicalized and the wealthy started to become the target of the growing understanding that a capitalist culture is antithetical to democracy as it stood. Money buys influence and effects legislation. The tying together of corporate interests with the government is fascism and as we all know corporate interests are generally not in line with what’s good for the average person, such as toxic dumping, air pollution, and endless problems associated with industry. Not to mention the corporate bottom line is biggest when they have low overhead, cheap labor and don’t have to pay taxes. Break up the unions, you break up people’s collective bargaining power, work on the congress – lobby for tax breaks for corporations and pay less taxes you get the idea.

All of this has been going on – this war began after FDR put in place regulations to control monopolies (the original source of the world financial crisis that plunged us into the Great Depression as well as Europe, especially Germany). It was those regulations or laws, which were based on the same sort of laws we as ordinary citizens would have to follow (in principle) that kept capitalism on a relatively even playing field. The breakdown of which over the past 30 years we are now seeing the results of.

Forget the history lesson above, here’s the point I want to make invention, intellectual leaps, progress and solutions don’t come from the rich, even jobs don’t, only a very small minority of jobs come directly from those newly rich people who actually are contributing members of society. Invention and intellectual leaps come from the middle-class, the class of people educated enough to want to reach upward and grab the golden ring not people sipping Manhattans while tanning themselves in Tahiti. The wealthiest one percent don’t have an incentive to solve anything, for them everything is solved, they are taken care of. Sure there are those rare individuals who want to contribute and who I salute like the young documentary film maker who exposed his world in “The One Percent,” an excellent entrance into the way people are indoctrinated into this bizarre entitled ideology and also a revelation on many other fronts.

If we lose the middle-class we become a third world country. And we also lose any chance we have of solving Global Warming, of advancing civilization or developing space travel. The rich will own us (as they wish to) and we will eventually be pushed into fighting or dying or both. They have successfully used racism/sexism/homophobia and fear to divide us. They have so confused the average person that he/she often votes against their own interest.

It is not a coincidence that the world is literally being flooded, deluged with tornadoes, earthquakes and soon hurricanes at unprecedented levels. It’s a wake up call: we must come together and fix what is broken.

I ask those who have the power and money to actually make a difference in this world these simple questions: What will it be worth when you have everything and there is nothing and no one left to lord it over or give it to? Are you that insecure you need to feel better than other people, is that what blinds you to the suffering and pain surrounding you? Do you love your family? If you answered yes to that, then what the hell are you doing to preserve this world for them?

Many blessings to the good and may the greedy find the world as wicked as they are,

Obama & Flu Be Gone

I didn’t want to be too hard on Obama. But I really don’t think keeping the statis quo as it has been for the past 30 years is the right way to go. We are in this horrible mess because we need to truly change, destroy and rebuild our system. There are too many old bones rattling around slowing down the wheels of progress, too much power that corporations have and too much reliance on corporate self-policing.

Obama just needs to get in there and do some serious butt kicking the way old FDR did it back in the day. Granted Obama has more hurdles and a country ill informed, and the vast majority of Americans who don’t even understand the basics of the economy well enough to know they are being swindled and lied to by FOX news inc. and as someone mentioned the big start of all this happened during the Reagan administration, when double speak and calling the conservative corporate media “the liberal media” started and all kinds of saying the opposite of the truth to cover the truth began.

Obama has a huge (and rather terrifying) job of reforming a dying beast in front of him. He is an amazing and erudite man, gentile and compassionate. These are all great qualities which I respect in him. I just want him to feel free to be a warrior on behalf of our country and do what needs to be done by disassembling the corporatocracy and re-instating the democracy we are supposed to be.

Hey, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’m finally over the flu despite being barfed on twice this weekend by my lovely little daughter.

Many blessings to all you kind and good hearted people,

Denise

Obama & Flu Be Gone

Age Of Aquarius

I find it interesting that the fabric of the right has unraveled to reveal the mummies they are. The current spokesman Rush Limbaugh – a man who has to fake girlfriends because he is so reviled by the opposite sex. A man who claims to be of the people, spewing venom at the supposed “elite,” yet he is perhaps in the highest echelon of the elite. He not only makes a reported 400 million dollars a year, lives in a palace, has a private jet, grew up in a rich family and went to one of those “elite” Ivy League colleges, he hangs out with the most wealthy and powerful people in the Republican party. He doesn’t sound much like Joe the plumber. Yet he has managed with his forked tongue to manipulate the ignorant masses who somehow believe he gets where they are coming from.

No. He’s a manipulative douche bag who taps into the xenophobia, homophobia and racism of isolated people who are mostly uneducated and frightened by the things they see on TV. It’s not that these people are bad or stupid, it’s just they long for some Mayberry past that never existed, and romanticize/glamorous the wealthy as if they are demigods who have no problems and somehow deserve their special place and privilege.

Does anyone actually believe that Rush Limbaugh works harder than any other person owning their own business? Of course he doesn’t. Even if he did nothing but work eighteen hours a day 7 days a week is his contribution to our world worth $400,000,000 dollars a year? Uhm, let’s see. Big NO. His “contribution” isn’t worth 2 cents. He’s an agent of his own agenda seeking to brainwash the masses into what FDR called a “royalist” mindset or what I call a “feudal” one. I suppose he gets the big bucks because he’s pretty good at confusing the average person into thinking he’s actually doing them a favor. The everyday people who listen to Limbaugh want there to be strict black and white rules about everything and desire easy answers so they might avoid the messy truth and the difficult work of introspection, compassion and wisdom. But the problem with the Universe is it is complex, multi-layered, morally complicated and requires constant introspection for true growth to occur.

Leading and following seem to be built into the primitive part of our brains (the monkey part where Alpha and Omega primate pecking order live) which is why the 60s movement promoting the questioning of authority and individuality wasn’t as much of a success as it should have been. It’s also why Christ, who came along to teach the Jews they had the wrong idea about God, to teach God was loving, compassionate and didn’t want human beings to judging each other, was misconstrued into a strange uncomfortable mix between the old and new testament God which makes so little sense anymore it borders on absurd.

Until we can act like rational evolved beings we will have war, poverty, ignorance, greed and prejudice.

In the new era we are facing, only those who can weigh information and take leaps in their thought processes will be able to survive the changes we are about to encounter. Following won’t do. We are as the old 60s song said, “at the dawning of the age of Aquarius,” and it will be imperative to our personal survival to understand the bigger picture, how we personally fit in and how we can change things for the better. 

Best wishes and many blessings to all you good kind evolved souls,

More questions! I’ll get to as many as I can tonight and the rest over the next couple of days.

Hi Denise,
Thanks for the reply. In regard to further info,
OZ Minerals is a merger between 2 companies – Oxiana and Zinifex.
The name OZ Minerals was approved by share holders on 18 July 2008 and started trading under that name on 23 July 2008. Hope this is sufficient info.

God Bless

Gurdeep

Hi Gurdeep,

Thanks for the info. Here is Oz Mineral’s founding chart:

oz-minerals1Here is their trading chart:

oz-mineral-trading-chartThe first chart I can’t be sure of the time, I used the start trading time of Australian Stock Exchange so I’m going to go on the second chart which will be more accurate and also be more appropriate as it will apply to those people who own stock in this company.

I would say there will be losses as Neptune returns to 23 degrees Aquarius in the 5th house in February of 09 but then as Uranus hits Mercury in the company’s 10th in March of 09 and trines natal Uranus and the Moon in the company’s 6th house there unexpected productivity which will lead to unexpected profits especially seen about a year later in April of 2010 when this aspects completes itself with a trine to the part of fortune in the 8th (investors). That will also be when (more toward the end of April but still, very close) when Mars will hit the company’s Venus (ruler of the 8th) and Neptune will be out of the 5th house of speculation and making an applying sextile to Pluto in the 3rd house from the 6th, which means there could be loss of some jobs as the company relocates or opens up another division somewhere else and lets some people go in the process, but it’s not a huge loss of jobs or anything. If you’re going to sell I’d wait until that period of time, it looks much better at that time. This stock will rebound and you will very likely regain any losses or make money if you wait it out until then.

Next from Barry:

For the people that have taken your advise and sold stocks and went to cash this year, when do you adivse investing again? I have a lot of cash in a money market fund in my 401k waiting to do this. I have a choice of 2 US domestic bond funds, 1 foreign fund and several US domestic stock funds. What would you invest in and when would you start? Thanks for doing this.

Hi Barry,

I can’t give you a logical answer like an investment person would only an intuitive one. Personally, I would wait until at least March of 2011 when Uranus moves out of Pisces and into Aries. Things will be more hopeful, and there will be much more market confidence in certain areas by then. But I have a caveat, Pluto will be going through Capricorn (which rules business, major corporations and markets) until 2024 and Neptune through Pisces until about 2025, which means we are going to see the end of business, capitalism and the markets as we have known them.

There is going to be major restructuring throughout the next (nearly) 20 years. And this will be on a global scale. You will have to really educate yourself not just the history of the markets, and any funds you are interested in, but you will also have to be able to follow all the nuisances, and changes that will be perpetually coming.

I know some financial people are saying there won’t be a depression, others are saying it will be the worst depression we’ve ever known. But truly, I don’t think either are correct. This is going to be a period unlike anything we’ve seen. I don’t feel it will resemble the 30s except on the very surface. I have a feeling the world will work together to solve this crisis as I’ve posted long before there was any talks of this or foreign leaders coming together, etc.

There will be a period of adjustment and I don’t think financial people really have a clue just how radically things are going to end up changing. As I’ve said before I feel there will be international laws put into place not just regarding lending, but on trading as well, the markets will somehow be tied together in a new way, and instead of this hodge podge of pieces there will be a uniting off all markets into a truly global economy. But this will take many years, and happen piece by piece.

So to better answer your question, please post or e-mail me (so you can remain anonymous if you wish) specific funds and a time frame so I can do a yes/no spread about them. The trend here I’m seeing is too big, and wide, that I can’t see the trees inside this forest unless you point them out.

Also a shout out to anyone who has some advice on foreign and domestic funds, perhaps a break down of what’s positive and negative to help out Barry and all other readers. I’m a psychic/artsy fartsy type I’m not a hedge fund manager so I can’t logically answer this question it’s too broad for me. Give me something I can do a chart on or a tarot reading about!

I am holding stock from the company AUY. Do you see the price going back up to between 10 to 30?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Ninja,

I’m mental with the stock symbols. Can you please post the name of the company and if you have the date it started trading and where that would be ideal, in case I don’t have it in my database.

Sorry about that for now, but I will answer you when I can run a chart. Or if you have a specific yes/no question I can do that, too.

Hi Denise,
I thought you and everyone would find this article/interview interesting. The financial strategists mention that around Valentines Day as the potential bottom of the market. This coincides with everything you’ve been saying about the first wave of the worst ending late January of next year. Thanks to everyone who shares their thoughts and of course, Denise who shares her insight, gift and wit. I look forward to you all every day.

“Pros Say: No Market Bottom ’til Valentines Day
The Big 3 U.S. automakers may have reached a bailout compromise Thursday – or not. Citigroup shares hover near $5, even after mega-investor Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said he’d boost his Citi stake to 5 percent. Strategists told CNBC to expect more volatility – and no bottom for months yet.

Thanks for the information Hope and a Plan!

Denise: Will there be a bailout for the American public or are lawmakers going to continue down the wrong path of bailing out their business buddies?

These stimulus packages Obama wants aren’t designed well enough. Because my business pays almost nothing in taxes due to our HUGE equipment write-offs, I’m not provided any of the stimulus.

Just curious if this bailout madness is going to either stop or come to who really needs it?

Thanks!!!

 

P.S. LOVE your blog. Don’t stop! Wish I could afford your private readings… )

Hi Chris,

This is an excellent question! It seems like the country has cancer of the eyeball and they are doing radiation on our femur. It’s kind of insane. I’m hopeful that it will get better with the new administration, but lets see what the cards say.

I asked if the new administration would focus on bailing out the people instead of big corporations. 

The answer: No.

But it’s not as bad as it seems. There will be change and much more help to those who need it. But it won’t be as much as many would like or think is necessary. The problem is they will keep trying to bail out companies to “save jobs” but they will also most likely extend unemployment benefits, pass health-care reform and also try to help people keep their homes, stuff like that, but by comparison it really won’t be commensurate with what they are doing for these big businesses that have been mismanaged, and deserve to go the way of the dodo for their idiocy and overpaid moronic CEOs. The money they spend bailing these companies out (which in my opinion those CEOs should have to sell all their assets off first and live like normal human beings if they ran their company into the ground, then they should loose their jobs and have to worry about money like anyone else does) would be better spent on education and on restructuring these companies. 

I don’t know if anyone saw Michael Moore on Larry King tonight, but he had a great idea; basically bail out the car companies, but take them over, kick out their management, and have them producing hybrids, mass transit vehicles, and cars that run on everything other than gas. I guess FDR took over the automotive industry when he came into office, and had them manufacturing airplanes, tanks, etc. for the war effort. Moore felt the government should take over the companies if they’re going to give them 25 billion, and make them help solve our reliance on oil in the process.

Moore was of the same split mind as most of us. These auto makers have been refusing to make good quality desirable products for the past 30 years, and now they want a hand out! It’s despicable and causes an immediate gag reflex before the repercussions of their failure hit the conscious mind. Moore had a good point. If these jobs go under there will be a huge ripple effect. And we can’t afford millions more jobs lost. So maybe socializing the auto industry not just by giving them money, but by actually making them do something productive would be a way out of the mess.

I doubt, however, this sort of strategy will be enforced. I’m sure this bail out will happen before the Obama administration gets in, and it maybe too late for the Obama administration to implement that idea depending on how the deal goes down. Let’s hope for all our sake congress uses their collective brain cell to figure this one out before signing off on our money like they did last time.

The second bail out package shouldn’t have happened, it did no good! The first one I believe would have made a difference, but so much was compromised, and ruined trying to get the Republicans on board that the bill was castrated. The only good that bill did was restoring a little faith that our government had a desire to solve the mess our country created. I think it bought us a little bit of diplomacy and that’s about it.

These questions will be answered over the next couple of days!

Best wishes and many blessings to all,

Denise

Hi Denise,

thanks so much for your blogs. I really enjoy coming back here. You have predicted a stock market “Tsunami” for December. Things are so extremely bad already… how much worse can it get…? Do you see the Dow Jones Index going below 6000 in December…? Also, do you expect Deflation or Inflation in 2009? Are they going to print so much money that the dollar becomes completely worthless and we will finally need a new currency, or o you see the dollar getting stronger, like right now?

Thanks a lot in advance,
your advice is truly appreciated!

Thank you in advance for answering my question.

If Obama chooses Hillary for the Sec of State job, will she be a team player and represent him to well or will she be a disappointment to Obama?

Will Gov. Richardson be offered a position in the Obama Administration?

Do you think that your dream with Chicago as a target, has any connection to the 2016 bid for Chicago Olympics? Considering that Atlanta was a target, it doesnt seem to unlikely that another Olympics in the US could be a target.

The Stock Market And How it Interacts With Our New President Elect

Hi Everyone, I just want to thank all of you for the kind words and support. And for your genuine compassion and hard work in turning this time stream toward a hopeful and positive future. I’m not saying we won’t have to pay for the trudge through the mud of the last 8 years, but our choice now will greatly help not just the US, people of all races, ethnicity’s, women, and men, but also the world as we are all more interlinked now then we have ever been. 

That being said we are going to have some crazy times ahead. And I will try to help navigate the waters ahead as best I can. As I mentioned before the stock market and the global economy is going to go through a very tough period. And remember Barack Obama is President elect, his energy is not yet attached to the karma of our country until inauguration day when he takes power. So we are going to see the Bush continium until the end of January. And Pluto goes over the Dow’s first house starting late December until late January. We will start to see some very odd stuff. Perhaps the reality of the economy will depress sales at Christmastime and further contribute to the Dow, and the rest of the world’s financial crisis come January. This aspect is exact until about January 22. I think inauguration day is the 24th, so perhaps the new energy of Obama/Biden taking office will bring some hope to the market, and the worst will be over for awhile.

However, in August of 09 Pluto will again go over the Dow’s first house as it retrogrades, and hopefully we will see our government use this energy in a positive way to put in place new regulations in an effort to restructure rather then the other alternative, another plummet. I’m going to be optimistic right now, and say this will be the start of a major restructuring of the global economy, and it will start here at home with the way America does business. Now we could also see the market react negatively to this, as we all know many investors don’t like changes, restructuring or regulation much. But it will be necessary and ultimately to the world economy’s advantage. If we don’t restructure, it will get very bad.

But, I do believe President elect Obama will make this a top priority in his administration. And I’ll let you know what I think will happen to the economy. I was going to answer a bunch of questions tonight, but I have been swamped the last few days, and will do so again tomorrow. So keep asking questions! This makes my job a lot easier. And a lot more interesting.

I decided tonight it was best to focus on the economy because I’m sure people are getting nervous about the market again now that the election is over. I’ve also gotten a plethora of questions about this issue, all of which I haven’t had time to address, but will over the next few days. I was too busy with the election to help those dealing with the economic crisis first hand.

So here are the charts of the DOW, NASDAQ, President elect Obama and VP elect Biden:

picture-8There is something very remarkable here! As bad as John McCain’s chart’s interaction was with the Dow, the opposite is true of President elect Obama. The Dow’s 8th house is Leo, this represents the investors/speculators. Obama has a stellium in Leo arcing over this house and into the 9th and he actually has Venus (a very beneficial planet that rules money) making an exact aspect to the Dow’s Moon which will be set off by Pluto. This aspect will literally soften the effect of the crisis. With Obama’s Venus being in the Dow’s 6th house there will be work done to the Dow (it will conjunct Uranus and make the opposition to the 1st and Moon which is where the Pluto transit is going to be) but with it being Venus, he will actually help stabilize the economy despite the volatility we will continue to see.

Also with his Sun conjunct the Dow’s 8th house, there will be a lot of people making money in the market. He also has Chiron in the Dow’s 8th which means he will help heal the situation for investors. Obama’s Saturn in the Dow’s 1st house means he will bring strict rules and regulations and order to the market. And his Jupiter (in Aquarius) is also in the 1st, showing he will expand the market in technology and attract more foreign investors in our companies. Perhaps even expanding the way our market is viewed in the world. This same Jupiter conjuncts the Dow’s Part of Fortune in the first, again, he will help bring a renewed prosperity.

OK I need to turn in for the night.  But let me say, that seriously the US really made the right decision here, for so many reasons! Not just because Obama is graceful, insightful, intelligent and compassionate, or because he’s broken barriers, but because he is going to do amazing things. He is going to turn this country around for the better in so many ways. And one of them will be fixing this economic crisis. Obama will show himself to embody qualities of FDR, Lincoln and already we’ve seen the parallel’s to Kennedy.

He will be a great president.

Congratulations to all of us!

Answering Reader’s Questions…

A reader named Roe asks:

Hi!
How much do you charge for a reading? I like your answers and the way you handle the questions. I’m curious as to what kind of a president Obama would be? Other astrologers have predicted a serious occurrence at the time of the election and also around the swearing in ceremony-what’s your take on it?

Thanks for the kind words.

I can do private readings over the phone via paypal. For a 15/20 minute reading it’s $90. I suggest doing this first so you don’t have to spend much to try me out. I can set up a time to call you and we can do the paypal transaction at the beginning of the reading, of course this would not be counted in your reading time. 15/20 minutes is generally enough to cover all of what you really need to know. Of course if you have a bunch of questions and you need a lot of information about specific stocks, etc. It would take longer and you might want to go for a 30-40 minute reading for $180 or a 60-70 minutes for $360. This is at the middle range of how much psychic phone reading costs. Here’s a link if anyone is interested in doing a price comparison research: http://www.keen.com/CommunityServer/UserBlogPosts/Lexy_Moon/Average-Price-Of-A-Psychic-Reading/358939.aspx

For those who are interested you can post and I will contact you via e-mail and we can set it up. In the case of missing children, criminal cases I would be happy to volunteer my time when I can. Or for those of you under extreme duress who really need guidance, I can do a yes/no spread and post it on the blog. Of course I’m always here for anyone wanting to ask a question in the comment section. But I won’t answer it unless it pertains to something bigger than just a personal question unless of course the issue is of dire consequence.

In reference to the later part of the question I don’t have the feeling, as I did in 2000 that the election will be thrown. Firstly, I don’t believe there is strong enough support within the Republican party to put themselves on the line for McCain, and secondly this election will not be close enough to throw. In terms of something happening during the swearing in, I’ll have to look at that. I think it’s only common sense to say that Obama is going to have to double up on the secret service, as I’m sure there will be attempts on his life. All you have to do is read some of the crazy trash people write me! And I’m just a messenger. There are a lot of violent, gun totting racists out there. I do worry about him. But we’ll deal with that when he wins.

And answering what kind of president Obama will be. I think he’s going to have an up hill battle. It’s going to be very hard for him, but he’s going to turn this economic crisis around after a few years and we’ll start to see things look up again. I think his calm demeanor and humanitarian personality will be a huge benefit to our country in our time of need, and  he will go down as an excellent president. But it will be rocky for him, there are going to be a lot of curve balls, not just with the economy, but with foreign affairs, which I’ll get into in later posts once we get through this horrible crisis.

It’s my feeling there really isn’t a person who would be better for this challenge then Obama right here and now. I think just his positive energy and slogan of hope helps uplift us even now. If we had McCain running against someone equivalent to him there would be a lot more hopelessness than there is right now. Obama represents a lot of archetypal things; he represents the American dream which a lot of people had lost hope in. He represents the idea that anything is still possible in our country, and we can’t discount how important this is to our psychology while we are facing perhaps the worst economic crisis in our history. If anything is possible, then we can get out of this, we can find a way. It is this belief in the human spirit, and American ingenuity that will translate to uplift our country. FDR, Lincoln and Kennedy had these qualities and I see them in Obama.

Comparison chart of FDR and Barack Obama

A friend told me there has been comparison made between Obama and FDR. Let’s see how this stacks up against their astrology. In FDR’s case we don’t have his time of birth, but I’ve done a solar chart which will give us a pretty good comparison to Obama except for the placement of planets in FDR’s houses.

Both have a Sun Mercury conjunction giving them intelligence, diplomacy and understanding of financial matters, close ties to women, and good oratory abilities. Both have a planet at 1 degree Cancer in FDR’s case it’s his moon and in Obama’s case his Venus. In the chart of the US Constitution this is a critical point as it is the mid-point between the US’s Mars and south node in the 5th house of speculation (also ruling the stock market). They understand crisis well and FDR responded emotionally (some would say his wife did, which would make sense as the moon is in the 5th and would indicate her) and Obama understands it fiscally and diplomatically — a more cool approach, but solid. Both had and have great passion when it comes to domestic issues especially in regards to the 5th house — stock market.

Barack’s point of fortune is on the US Constitution’s Moon, giving good luck when we need it most in foreign affairs (Sag rules the foreign) and in the 10th which is the career or industry of the nation. FDR had his North node there and it also gave us luck and a vision of how to solve future problems via government oversight and regulations which the Republicans have widdled away at ever since. As a side, we are now seeing the effects of deregulation and non regulation in the case of China — it doesn’t work, never has. It’s akin to putting the fox in charge of the hen house.

FDR  had a stellium in Taurus trining the US’s stellium in Virgo. Barack has conjunctions to this stellium, both good in this instance. Barack’s rising conjuncts FDR’s Sun and reflects the same humanitarian urges FDR showed during the Great Depression.

They definitely have major differences as well. FDR had a lot of air and earth in his chart making him even cooler than Obama, who would come at this crisis with tremendous passion and dedication to solving it, not unlike FDR, but the style would be different. FDR came at it with the same resolve, but in a more plodding manner.

FDR had Neptune in Taurus close to the same degree Obama’s opposite Neptune in Scorpio, again the see-saw, similar in a way. Obama however is more spiritual, FDR more pragmatic. I wouldn’t be surprised to find that FDR was completely secular. Obama looks for the hidden and has a genuine interest in the spiritual.

Barack has Saturn in Capricorn opposite the US Constitution’s Uranus, helping to stabilize unseen, out of the blue lightning strikes. This also gives him tremendous ability to foresee potential problems before they happen. He may not realize it, but his intuition about the state of the Union is right on. Barack has both his Sun and Mercury trining the US Constitution’s Moon, again helping to stabilize the country and sooth the emotional roller coaster we’re feeling. FDR had his Sun and Venus sextiling the US Constitution’s Moon again creating the opportunity to do the same, but not with as much punch as Obama’s. 

While the two are not the same, having very different personalities, both their charts give luck, stabilization and confidence to the US’s chart. I’m not saying Obama is magic and all our problems will dissolve if (and hopefully for our sake when) he becomes president, but he will significantly ease our upcoming difficulties and be a great president. It may take a while for him to unravel this mess, but he will be able to get us back on track and the longer he stays in office the more he’ll be able to dig us out of the rabbit hole. 

There are definite parallels between these two men. Both great in a crisis with tremendous aspects to the US chart.
