OPEN LETTER TO THE FDA AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

Strange but somehow a piece from my computer that was not supposed to be posted was switched with the letter. How this happened I have no idea I will find the letter and repost it later. Kind of freaks me out.

OPEN LETTER TO THE FDA AND FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

A dream and a recap…

I had the funniest dream last night that Michael Moore had a TV show in which super wealthy investors held a lottery to invest in a company that manufactured time machines. This investment was legal but unethical and bordered on insider information laws (or so the wealthy people thought.) They were all chomping at the bit to give him 100,000 dollars to invest in this company that was sure to be worth at least 10 times that in a matter of months when the company went public. A woman won the lottery and when she found out that it was all a hoax and the money she pledged was going to charity she fell into a hysterical fit of crying. She didn’t want to give money to charity as it turned out, even though she had billions of dollars and it was a write-off, she acted as if she had been a person on the verge of being kicked out of their apartment for non-payment for rent and miraculously told they would be given a new home, completely paid for, only to have it taken away. Michael Moore was like a 21st century Robin Hood with a punked twist. It was pretty funny.

But on a more serious note, I remember telling everyone 2 years ago that a health care bill would be passed and of course since then it really wasn’t looking good for my prediction. I had to keep reminding myself that the astrology pointed to this happening despite the dire chances of it actually happening. It got so bad I had trouble even watching the news and it made me nervous about predicting anything! Well, turns out I was right. I found some references from the fall of 2008 stating Obama would get a health care bill passed, but not all of the stuff I wrote about it. I specifically remember writing that health care reform would come in stages due to lobbying groups and complications but I didn’t have the patience to find that particular post. I did however find this from December 2, 2008:

https://astrologyandpsychicpredictions.wordpress.com/2009/02/25/obamas-speech-health-care-reform/

Here’s the post from December 2, 2008 about the health care system:

In the spring of 2009 we’ll see the first in a series of bills aimed at health-care reform as transiting Uranus in Pisces goes through the first house and opposes the US cons. sign. chart’s Sun. The way we see this issue has been changing over the past seven or so years, our minds began changing then when Uranus opposed Mercury in the 7th. And then as bankruptcy laws changed and increases in health-care costs went up, Uranus opposed Venus in the 7th, again highlighting the financial need for laws to change how we deal with our health-care system, pointing out the lack of human kindness in it. And finally when it hits the Sun in spring of 09, the vitality of this issue, the soul of the problem will be tackled in a bill. This aspect will go back and forth for a while so it will be the first in a series of several major changes to the system we now have in place.

It probably won’t be until May of 2010 until these changes are really put into action. This will be when transiting Uranus in Pisces will be trining the US cons. sign’s Uranus in the 6th house of health and the health-care system. This overhaul will be immediate, and a bit of a shock to the system, but will be a great improvement especially for women and children, and those who don’t have steady employment, but work more piece meal.

And then this (as it seems to be playing out) very accurate interpretation of Barak Obama’s natal chart:
https://astrologyandpsychicpredictions.wordpress.com/2008/09/22/barack-obama-his-chart-who-is-he/

Just thought I’d freak out a little about the very slim and seemingly impossible made possible that astrology predicted 2 years before anyone could have known. Oddly, I was getting so angry about the whole issue because it seemed that the Tea Baggers ( I refuse their new name as Tea Bagger fits so much more) and Insurance Companies and the loads of American doctors who go into health care for the pay check rather than the art of healing appeared to be in control of the train rolling down hill and out of control. All I can say is thank GOD/GODDESS/GREAT SPIRIT/GREAT INTELLIGENCE/DIVINE HOLINESS whatever one wants to call it, this truly was a miracle! It’s not over yet. This is just the beginning in a series of moves toward bringing the Unites States back into Western civilization. It does give one hope that we can reverse the corruption and insurgent group that has been trying to decay democracy from the inside out since Nixon took the white house and Reagan sold our souls with his grandpa, fairy, acting, dust sprinkled in the eyes of all the up and coming yuppies who wanted so desperately to believe reality came in black and white. And the infamous overly used expression during the 80s to sell hyperdrive consumerism, “You (or, I, when convincing the self) deserve the best. You (or I) work really hard.” As if people who work 80s a week in Dickensian England or modern-day Bangladesh or China don’t work hard and don’t deserve the finest things life has to offer because of that. However now, we’ve moved past that excuse and we’re just like a crazed alcoholic in search of our next drink, we don’t even think twice about spending or work in relation to it.

Ah, well, nice to rant. Hope all of you are doing well. I’ll try to be more consistent.

Peace and many blessings,

Denise

An Interesting Question about the Universe from a Reader…

Here’s the question from a fellow reader who e-mailed this to me:

Here goes, if I can express my question lucidly:
Most of physical matter appears to be contained within something else. For example, protons and electrons are contained within atoms, and atoms are a part of all matter. All organisms found on this planet are contained on this planet which itself is contained within the solar system which in turn is contained within a galaxy which is considered a part of the universe which is thought to be INFINITE. So, going with this theme, in what is the UNIVERSE contained? If it is contained in something bigger than itself, then the universe is FINITE. If our UNIVERSE is contained in something else, then is that SOMETHING ELSE contained within something else, and so on and so on?
Is this a different paradigm for analyzing our ‘UNIVERSE’ around us or Am I Just Being Silly?!! 🙂
Here’s my answer:
There are some interesting new theories about this very question and some answers have come from String Theory. I’ll try to do a descent job of explaining what I’ve read on the subject and of course it will be in layman’s language and hopefully I won’t butcher any of the ideas too badly, so here goes. The first thing about string theory is the ideas in it are complicated and require something like at least 11 parallel dimensions in order for the theory to even work. The string part of string theory is derived from the notion that beyond the smallest known particles like quarks (which behave very unusually and in many ways prove some esoteric ideas, but that’s another story) are the tiniest of the tiniest bits that make up all known things. And once clumped together into something they take on certain characteristics. These strings are ubber tiny strings that vibrate and it is through their vibration that they attract other like strings and make stuff. I love this idea as the universe would literally be made up of inaudible music created from the tiny strings. So these strings vibrate at a certain pitch and collect to make different sorts of bigger compounds.
But the most interesting part of String Theory is the question that it set out to answer which was the notion of how did the Big Bang happen? Or what came before the Big Bang? And something to note here is that the Big Bang is a more complicated idea than most of us are taught, here’s a brief synopsis. All of a sudden space-time blasted into being, it started out very hot and very close together and has been pushing out since then. The part that we often misunderstand is the notion of space-time which is a complicated idea. Literally everything that exits in the Universe, all of time and space was created in that one moment which came from nothing. That’s a pretty heavy and strange idea.
Now the beautiful thing about String Theory, and in my opinion where it dovetails with the metaphors of all religions and the notion of “as above so below,” is the idea that what created the Big Bang was a bunch of universes all sort of floating around in what is now called a multiverse and two of these universes happened to collide into one another thus creating our universe (sort of like sex or the idea of the Goddess and the God or in esoteric Judaic and Christian traditions, the notion of God and his female soul Sophia or the feminine side of God co-creating the Universe).  Of course one then asks where did this multiverse come from and so on which is the appeal of the easy answer/creationism/intelligent design.
Here’s the thing from my own personal experience that leads me to believe String Theory is about as close as we’ve in come, in science, to the truth. When I was 12 my back was fractured and I had a herniated disc. I was put on bed rest for about 7 months. My father was dead by this time and my mother worked, so I spent 95% of my days alone. Besides watching Oprah on my little black and white TV there wasn’t much to do so I spent a lot of time, reading, thinking and meditating. A lot of my meditation was spent on God and how the Universe came to be as I was always psychic and very fascinated by this question. I had started my search for answers at about 9 when I began reading astronomy textbooks to learn about what made up the universe and peer into any clue I could find about how it worked. I found a lot of information about dwarf stars, black holes (which were still theoretical at the time) and approximations of how many stars were in our galaxy (about 300,000) but not much about how the universe came to be which I found very frustrating. I then searched through my  occult books, the bible, mythology, etc.
Again nothing satisfied so I thought about it and spent many days and nights meditating on the question until I came to the knowing that the Universe was like a circle within a circle within a circle. There was no end and no beginning, these circles went on for infinity in every direction. There was no end to how many parallel dimensions as that was infinite as well. Perhaps the greatest epiphany was that God was always and forever, meaning God had no beginning and no end. God was also not a “designer” but an energy source present in everything and everyone and there was no true beginning of time or matter, it just transformed as we did when we die. Hence we as human beings are both finite and infinite as our souls are eternal and part of God’s energy and our bodies are part of the earth which has a finite beginning, middle and end as do all physical things. The energy that makes them is infinite and forever but they have a finite period of time to “live” and develop until the next set of lessons and/or individuation process unfolds.
Of course this brings up the notion of why God would want or need to expand Him/Herself. The answer I came up with was to experience Him/Herself and allow each piece of Him/Herself to individuate and ascend infinitely, reuniting with the Self/God after a period of expansion and learning. This theory would of course mean we reincarnate for as long as we want and perhaps in some cases for as long as we need to.
I hope this makes some sense and is not to confusing.
This is why ancient religions stated “All Gods are One,” and the spiritual seeker is to always see the God/Goddess in everyone he or she meets (-Namaste). This is sometimes hard when dealing with people who are asleep spiritually or run their lives as if they are worker drones or zombies. Those who have yet to awaken to the power and truth of our collective Oneness. Or what some call “conservatives.” I’m not going to go on about the health care zombies right now who basically argue that they have theirs so f everyone else. This is a sad state we are in and one I’ve thought a lot about lately. Is it that there are too many of us on the planet and there are the same percentages of selfish people? Or is it that we are so many we are starting to act like too many rats stuck in the same cage? Even simple courtesy seems to have dissolved into the whole “me first” way of our current world. Not only is this sad on a spiritual level and hurtful to our emotional and psychic development, but it also freaks me out because it makes me think we are calling down the worst possible fate by our behavior and sadly we are all going to have to suffer under it whether or not we partake of this intensely rude and mean spirited selfishness. We are all linked and we will all have to answer to the loud mouths who would rather let a stranger starve on the street than help them. I have to admit that my natural inclination toward feeling most human beings were ultimately good has been replaced by the feeling that there is a range of goodness and most people are heavy into the middle section of gray. I know there are many good, great loving people in the world, it’s just that their voices are often softer then those who are rude and mean spirited, this has always been the case. I wish there was some way to change it.
Many blessings,
Denise

Obama’s Speech & Health Care Reform

Obama’s speech last night was amazing. I didn’t get to finish watching all of it but he really is the first president I’ve ever truly been proud of. He exemplifies the best that a leader can be. I’ve been doing some looking back and wanted to share some earlier posts that touch on things that Obama talked about last night.

Here’s a post from December 2, 2008 about the health care system:

In the spring of 2009 we’ll see the first in a series of bills aimed at health-care reform as transiting Uranus in Pisces goes through the first house and opposes the US cons. sign. chart’s Sun. The way we see this issue has been changing over the past seven or so years, our minds began changing then when Uranus opposed Mercury in the 7th. And then as bankruptcy laws changed and increases in health-care costs went up, Uranus opposed Venus in the 7th, again highlighting the financial need for laws to change how we deal with our health-care system, pointing out the lack of human kindness in it. And finally when it hits the Sun in spring of 09, the vitality of this issue, the soul of the problem will be tackled in a bill. This aspect will go back and forth for a while so it will be the first in a series of several major changes to the system we now have in place.

It probably won’t be until May of 2010 until these changes are really put into action. This will be when transiting Uranus in Pisces will be trining the US cons. sign’s Uranus in the 6th house of health and the health-care system. This overhaul will be immediate, and a bit of a shock to the system, but will be a great improvement especially for women and children, and those who don’t have steady employment, but work more piece meal.

And this pertinent post dated January 25, 2009 after doing the chart of the 2nd inauguration:

With Mercury ruling the chart due to the Virgo ascendant and it being Mercury retrograde, which is probably why this happened to begin with (if something legal occurs during Mercury retrograde it inevitably has to be redone or if one goes on a trip during Mercury retrograde it means you will return to that place again later so it’s not always a bad thing), but getting back to the point, Mercury is in Capricorn in the 5th. I’d say there will be a lot of criticism and judgement from the other side about how to deal with the stock market and the financial disaster we’re in.

Be prepared to hear a lot of dramatic exaggeration of how his plan will ruin everything if put into place (by the Republicans) with Mercury being in the 5th house.  There will be an unfair amount of expectation for Obama to be perfect, and his critics will be very nitpicking and harsh with Saturn in Virgo in the 1st house. Expect his greatest criticism to come from the fiscally privileged with Moon in Sagittarius. Those corporations who have shipped jobs over seas, taking them off American soil. This could be because of new laws Obama will try to put in place making it difficult, if not impossible, for companies to exploit developing nations in leu of paying a proper wage to the American worker and keeping jobs here.

With Uranus and Venus conjunct in Pisces in the 7th house squaring the Moon in the 4th and opposing Saturn in the 1st, the loss of jobs, money, and passing of new laws pertaining to work, health-care, public service and  the real estate market means richy rich isn’t going to be pleased. There will be some real reform coming from an idealistic compassionate bent with Uranus conjunct Venus in Pisces meaning the Obama administration won’t have the motto, “greed is good,” but rather a motto of, “lifting up your brother, lifts all humanity.” Usually, selfish, greedy people don’t really dig this, too much, and they will be ravenous dogs picking at every tiny little thing they can find to try and show some sort of hole in his ideals.But I don’t think they’ll get far.

The public is going to be overwhelmingly with Obama, all that Aquarius in the 6th house of the regular working person means he will appeal to their issues and needs. He will do a lot to help those people. Also this chart reflects the reform of the health care system coming in his first term of office.

My feeling is Obama will be like Reagan in that any dirt thrown his way will just blow back on those throwing it. He is definitely the man for this big job, and the hope he has inspired alone is worth so much after 8 years of utter storming despair under the Bush administration’s fear and spy tactics. It’s as if we just broke down the Berlin wall again. The last 8 years were as close as we’ve come so far to a Plutocracy.

 

Blessing to all of you,

Denise

Obama’s Speech & Health Care Reform

Happy Inauguration!

Today felt more like New Years then New Years day did to me. It was really very moving. And inspired me to feel that we have again began to walk the right path, the one going forward. We’ve spent the last eight going backwards and imploding. I remember the Bush inauguration, boy was it different! Instead of their being over 2 million people gleefully wanting to see the President sworn in and people openly weeping with joy, the street that Bush traveled down was blocked off because there were so many protesters, many of whom were throwing eggs and various other rotten fruits and vegetables at his limo. When I think about that compared to the joy and hopefulness of this new inclusive administration that actually thought to have an open inauguration ball for the people, a president who was put in office by the good people of this land instead of corporate America, I feel pride in humanity. There are so many truly good hearted people, problem is most of them are not CEO’s or in the halls of power. But I feel with Obama we have one of our own to represent us. 

I wanted to say there were some really interesting posts today and I want to get to them but will do so tomorrow. Today I want to focus on the coming administration and the chart I had for Lincoln which was wrong, and now righted, comparing it again to Obama. And also the real time that inauguration took place and what it means in terms of its resonance with the next 4 years.

barack-obama-abe-linconlLooking at these charts I see even more in common then the wrong chart for Lincoln I had. Of course, Lincoln’s birth time might be off, all I could find was a reference to him being born around sun-up and also a website that had guessed his birth time at 6:54 AM probably based on this old folk lore, but it doesn’t matter because it’s close enough to a solar chart to tell us what we need to know anyway. 

There are all sorts of karmic indicators between the two men born about 150 years apart. It’s quite remarkable and seems to imply that if Obama isn’t the reincarnation of Lincoln then he is meant to finish what Lincoln started in terms of the inclusion of all people into the political process.

Here are just a few bizarre examples of the karma indicated in the charts, Obama’s rising is conjunct Lincoln’s Sun and Rising, Barack’s part of fortune is conjunct Lincoln’s Neptune and Saturn in Sagittarius, Barack’s south node is conjunct Lincoln’s Sun and rising. The south node and Saturn are both the main indicators (and the moon as well) in regards to past lives. Here we see that the south node, where would have left of in a past life is directly conjunct the rising and Sun of Lincoln, add Uranus to this conjunction, further emphasizing the Aquarian (humanitarian, global, broad minded, highly idealistic) direction that Obama not only has had in his previous life (south node) but is going toward in his current lifetime. Uranus rules Aquarius, giving Obama’s north node an Aquarian flavor. Now that’s pretty connected, but then look at Saturn, another big karmic indicator.

Obama’s Saturn is conjunct Lincoln’s part of fortune and his Moon. Again a serious karmic connection. And Lincoln’s Saturn and Neptune are directly conjunct Obama’s part of fortune. So literally, Lincoln set in motion laws and karma that directly benefitted Obama, allowing Obama to continue Lincoln’s mission of bringing idealism, hope and morality to the office of the Presidency.

Let’s not forget, not only was Lincoln coming into office while slavery, a moral outrage, was in force but also about 40 years from the Seminole war/trail of tears — the genocide of the Native American people, especially the Seminole tribes during Jackson’s administration, the Creek being one of the hardest hit. I’m sure there were plenty of Americans who didn’t like the direction the country was going in, morally ambigious (to be generous) and morally reprehensable to be more accurate. Let’s not forget the movement of people like John Brown, Harriet Tubman and a host of others who were not only against slavery, but saw it as evil. And here comes Lincoln, he played it pretty cool during the election, but his moral objection to this atrocity was so great, he was willing to push the country to war in order to correct our course. Ironically, Lincoln became president in 1861 and Obama was born exactly 100 years later in 1961. I could go on with the similarities between these two men, but I already have in a previous post and what I’m seeing now with the correction is only that these two men are more alike then I imagined.

Ok, a couple more things, their Suns are in opposite signs and their Moons make an opposition (despite it being out of sign it is still only 5 degrees apart). Especially when the Sun is involved in an opposition there are a lot of similar qualities between the two signs because when the Sun is in Leo, the Earth is in Aquarius and vice-versa. There are many other things that strike me, such as Lincoln’s Mars in Libra and Obama’s Mars in the 7th house, both fighters for justice and equality.

Obama’s love life is much better though then poor Lincoln’s who was attracted to very self-absorbed women. If Obama was Lincoln in a past life, he seems to have figured that lesson out because he has a much more harmonious love life than Lincoln did. Obama is attracted to women (in terms of long term love relationships) who are strong, dramatic, romantic and nurturing. Can’t say the same for Lincoln, he was stuck with Venus in Aries in the first, a double whammy. I bet Mary Todd was violent both verbally and physically, full of anger and selfish — these qualities may have been considered insane in a woman back then when women were supposed to put aside their own egos and support their husbands. Mary Todd probably tried to do this, but she wanted to be the center of attention and be in control. More than likely she resented her husband and the world for the unfairness women endured, having to sublimate her own needs and ambitions for her family.

Now let’s look at the inauguration chart and see what it says about the tone of the next 4 years:

barack-obama-inauguration 

Wow! Can you see all that Aquarius and Pisces at the top of the chart! Despite the Moon being void of course, which in my opinion can make anything possible and isn’t necessarily a bad thing, there is a real focus on idealism, humanitarianism, the greater good and sacrificing for the good of the whole. The Sun is conjunct Mercury, Jupiter and the north node all in Aquarius in the 10th, meaning there will be a renewed sense of our common humanity, a focus on communication and through communication we will find our greatest fortune and direction.

It’s interesting to note that Aquarius rules TV and new technology. The inclusion of the “Neighborhood Ball,” that was both televised and interconnected with parties around the world via the internet and text messaging is not just a fluke with this administration. We will see Obama pushing and using new technology to interconnect humanity and to create a greater sense of community, things he’s already done but this won’t stop now that he’s become president, from this chart it looks like this will be expanded upon. He really will be open to any good idea no matter where it comes from with all that Aquarius — it means he will be thinking outside the box and won’t care about an ideology being condoned by the elite but rather will truly get inspiration, motivation and problem solving from all sorts of people.

So if you have any good ideas, seriously, e-mail him. He will pay attention. One of the things I loved was after the “Neighborhood Ball,” was his interview with a random woman reporter who I’ve never seen before, and I”m sure for her this was a huge break to get to interview the new president. He actually honestly thanked her.

He is an amazing mix of dignity, humility and confidence that is so rare. Can you imagine Bush thanking someone like this unknown entertainment reporter? No, he wouldn’t even talk to her or know her name. If she bothered to shout a question at him coming off a helicopter, Bush would probably have responded to her with something like, “No comment, Leggy.”

Doesn’t it feel like you were finally freed after being at a really crappy job for 8 years chained to a desk with only a naked buzzing florescent light bulb dangling over your head? And now you just took a long hot shower and are drinking a cup of cocoa by a fire in some nice cozy cabin? Bush being gone is such a relief, it’s hard to even believe it’s real. I’m wondering if I’m going to wake up tomorrow only to find its all been one amazing dream. It almost seems like some cheesy Hollywood movie where the good guys win. It kind of restores ones faith in goodness.

I want to mention all the Pisces in the 11th house which reinforces Obama’s message of giving back to the community and encouraging people to serve others for the good of the whole. This will also continue to be a main theme throughout his administration, not just a campaign promise or stump speech anomaly.

There are a couple of troubling things, one is Neptune making a waning square to the moon (which is void of course) involving the 7th and 11th houses, signifying there maybe unrealistic expectations placed on Obama’s administration. The Moon in Scorpio going through the 7th house of the public would indicate that people may expect him to fix the war, financial crisis and make nice-nice with the rest of the world either unrealistically fast or out of just plain old delusion.  With Pluto in Cap transiting the 8th house, the indication is major transformation and shake up related to banking, financial, corporate and halls of power. Obviously this is already showing with our failing economy and electing the first African American President who implicit in his color alone, has shaken up the Washington establishment and re-defined what a candidate not only can look like but what his message can be. Pluto in Capricorn however indicates there is more transformation in corporations, big business, financial institutions and wall street ahead. And with Mars in Capricorn in the 9th Obama will have to contend with some infighting among allies on how to deal with the world’s economic crisis. There will also be resentment toward the US by other countries who will rightfully blame us for causing this problem. However, unfairly Obama will have to deal with some very angry foreign leaders who will see us as the reason their economies are faltering. I don’t see this as being a warlike sort of thing, just heated debate among friends on how to solve this problem. I can see why some astrologers were freaking out over the potential for Obama’s assasination for the obvious reasons but also because Pluto is in the 8th house. But in my opinion and my gut, Pluto there (especially because it’s in Cap) is related to the world economic structure, financial and business worlds not Obama himself. These institutions are going to have serious trouble, many more major corporate institutions, banks, and businesses will become defunct. This will not be a time of greed, over-zealous capitalism and giant profits.

It will be a time of reckoning, spiritual evolution, appreciating what is truly important, each other and helping one another. It will be the best of times and the worst of times for big business, investors and a lot of people who may still potentially loose their jobs. However, with Taurus rising it does look like Obama will focus on creating new jobs for people. Perhaps the creation of re-education programs geared toward not only technology and service, but for working with the elderly and dying, will be encouraged through this administration.

Despite the financial sour pickle we are going to eat and the release of information (probably within the next day or so) that will make the market start to free fall some more, we will be a better, stronger, wiser, kinder people. Also with Saturn in the 5th, the stock market will have the squeeze put on it both in terms of new laws and regulations and also its numbers continuing to constrict rather then bloom.

I think we may see the end of capitalism as we have known it. But once new laws (which there will likely be many international as well) are put into place, there stock market will recover. And with Saturn being in Virgo, down the road the next set of stocks to get  hit will be health care related stuff as it seems Obama will restructure that as well. 

OK, enough of my rambling. Please post your comments and questions. You all, always amaze me with your insights. I’m fortunate to have such a brilliant group of people who bother to peer inside my nutty brain.

Best wishes and many blessings to all of you,

Denise 

Oh! I forgot to mention another kind of cool thing. Obama is the 44th president, that’s a karmic master number!

Happy Inauguration!

Barack Obama vs. Abraham Lincoln

Their career paths have been compared, and almost parallel in their meteoric rise from being state legislators to Presidents (in Obama’s case potential president). But what do their charts say. Are they similar? And if so how? Let’s take a look at the man who helped start the Republican party and the current lead Democrat.

 

 Despite the unknown time of Lincoln’s actual birth we can still compare the basics so here goes:

Although Lincoln was an Aquarian he had a lot of water in his chart, specifically Pisces which gave him great compassion for the down trodden. Pisces is opposite of Virgo and the two have a lot in common, as Leo is opposite of Aquarius. Again both signs share similarities, this is because if you have the sun in Leo like Barack Obama your earth is in Aquarius, meaning the earth is actually traveling through the constellation of Aquarius. So in a sense opposites are not really opposites in astrology but rather two sides of a see-saw.

WIth so his sun and moon in Aquarius Lincoln definitely thought outside the box and was ruled by his principles but unlike Sarah Palin who is utterly lacking in compassionate or sensitivity in her chart, Lincoln had oodles of it. He was a visionary, literally and extremely intuitive, eccentric, odd looking as we know and a revolutionary for the greater good. His chart is heavy on trines like Barack’s making it easy to communicate, rise to the head of the class and understand others on a very gut level, very similar to Barack Obama’s abilities. Barack shows great aptitude for communication and shows intellectual brilliance in his chart, Lincoln shows immense genius with Uranus making a trine to his mercury both in water signs he was probably spooky (if you knew him personally) in his ability to read things others couldn’t see and size up situations in a glance. His chart is the stuff of legends. He also had Mars in Libra trining his sun, making fairness a huge issue for him much like Obama. The civil war probably pained Lincoln greatly on a personal level as he wasn’t a hawk but would have preferred to work things out through debate, alas this was not his fate. Saturn and Neptune conjunct in Sagittarius gave him charisma and uncannily good luck in his career. But it also gave him trouble as evidenced by his assassination (square to Mercury with Neptune there — Neptune bringing loss.) This was not helped by his Uranus, ruler of his sun and moon in Scorpio (can mean sudden death) square his moon. His Venus inconjunct Uranus also brought turmoil to his relationships with women and his love life which he probably didn’t see until he was smack in the middle of it and it was too late to bail out.

Obama’s chart is more stable, grounded and service oriented rather than sacrifice oriented like Lincoln’s but there are some real similarities between these two men. Obama however is a more dramatic orator, (supposedly Lincoln had a strange high pitched voice and of course Obama has a deep melidious one) and his passion is more on a gut level than Lincoln’s which was more intellectual in nature. Neither are/or where hawkish in their world view but rather keen to diplomacy first. Obama is more of a fighter with so much Leo in his chart, some would say a bit more bombastic but also much warmer. It’s doubtful that a man like Lincoln could be president during our age of TV and the internet, as his looks and personality would have been very eccentric and off putting at close inspection. Obama on the other hand has the charm and charisma needed to win the office in contemporary culture with good looks and personality playing such a key role in elections. 

Obama is about as close to the likes of Lincoln as we could concievably see in contemporary America. There are some real parallels not just in their careers but in their personalities. Obama’s main focus is the working person however, and of course Lincoln’s was a bigger more pervasive assumption that he tackled. Lincoln’s chart reflects his ability to truly shake up the statis quo, Obama’s is not really set up like that, it is focused primarily on serving the everyday American trying to get by and the economy which if Obama wins we’ll be able to dig ourselves out of the rabbit hole. If not, if McCain wins look for a major global Depression where the rich get richer and less and less fit into that one percent. Our nation will look like a bad day in Tijuana. We will see the end of the middle class if McCain wins at least until someone else takes the reigns but by then it maybe too late. 

MAKE SURE TO VOTE NOVEMBER 2.

Barack Obama vs. Abraham Lincoln

Barack Obama – his chart, who is he?

It’s interesting to see how prevalent the 7th house is in the charts of politicians. As law makers it makes sense being that the 7th house rules courts and justice as well as partnerships, the public and open enemies.

In Barack’s case we see a lot of 7th house action, his mind is defintely occupied with issues of fairness, equality and service. His Leo sun is reigned in by the 6th house of service so any bombast is tempered with his desire to serve coupled with his opposition to Uranus in the 7th and his Aquarius rising he has strong desire to serve humanity.

With his Pluto in the 7th his partner is strong, as we know. And has great influence, as well as Joe Biden will. He takes into consideration other points of view and weighs them heavily in his decision making process.

Moon in Gemini trine his Jupiter gives him a cool emotional demeanor and an understanding of both foreign and domestic people. His childhood would involve a lot of emotional ups and downs and moving quite a bit, this is also public knowledge but is indicated in his chart. His mother was an intellectual and teacher, (Moon in Gemini in the 4th) this created great opportunity for him to grow intellectually as moon trines his Mercury in the 6th. Again he puts his knowledge into serving the greater good. Not surprising he would become a community organizer as his need to serve is strong and taught him a lot about the world and himself.

Mars in Virgo in the 6th again reinforces his desire to play fair and serve others in the process which is probably why he was attracted to law. but the kind of law he was interested in and is interested in is focused on workers and their plight, those that serve others, he identifies with them which is part of his passion to serve.

He has the ability to think outside the box (Aquarius rising) but this is balanced by many factors in his chart which enable him to think in gradations of color as opposed to the black and white world of someone like Sarah Palin who has a proponderance of fixed signs and too much Aquarius in her chart leading her into the realm of magical thinking and the inability to listen to others, this quality often referred derogatorily as “a know it all,” is not present in Barack Obama. His chart is balanced with all the elements and enough mutable signs to offset his fixed sun and rising. He is strong in his convictions without being married to his ideas, able to amend his position to changes that come along when necessary and capable of listening to a good case and changing his mind to fit the facts and circumstances.

His emotional center is his home life, his wife and children, and his mother. Jupiter in Aquarius in the 12th making a trine to his moon will ultimately be a great benefit, just as the chips look down for him luck strikes and fate helps him along. 

All in all he is compassionate, service orientated, humanitarian and extremely intelligent, if this makes him an elitist then we should all be so lucky as to be called this. His excellent aspects make him capable in many ways, not just his general intelligence, ability to understand the working person, his service oriented personality but also he understands finances not just the big picture but the details of the economy. Notice the trine between Saturn in Capricorn in the 12th and Mars in Virgo. He understands what is going on behind the scenes, things we the public do not see and knows how to fix this via legislation, Mars in the 7th in Virgo. It’s no surprise that the top wealthiest among us those in the top one percent fear him because he is not going to be a giant help to them but rather to us, the everyday people who work for a living. He has many enemies in that elite group and it will be no surprise that they will pull out all the stops to make sure he’s not elected including resulting to fear tactics (geared to the naive) which will more than likely be their main focus in trying to take him down. But alas, he does have Jupiter there to save him. So he does have hidden forces who support him and luck on his side.

He will restore our good name in the world and put our economy back on track and with all the Virgo in his chart he will reform health care for the betterment of us in the middle class.

So make sure to vote!
