I hit on what I think Obama’s void-of-course moon in his announcement chart and in his inauguration chart mean (especially the former). I believe that the void-of-course moon is great for long-shot chances. If you have a cause that you believe is worthy but hasn’t a snowball’s chance in you-know-what, you would do well to make your formal announcement or create a website for it during the void-of-course moon. I have come to this conclusion after watching several sports events over the course of several years, and have come to this realization in the past few weeks. THIS is why it was actually very fortunate for the erstwhile congressman Obama to declare his candidacy for president during the void-of-course moon; he was well aware of the huge obstacles he had to overcome in order to win the White House. (I am not saying that long-shots only win during a void-of-course moon, I am saying that it is more likely to happen during a void-of-course moon.)
The Sun enters Sagittarius at 4:50 pm Wednesday, Nov. 21. As one of the dual signs, Sag natives are of two minds as to how they want others to think of them. One is as an intellectual authority, and the other is as the clown. I find it puzzling that they really expect to have it both ways. Some Sag natives alienate others by demanding that others agree with them, a habit that does them a disservice because they need the input of others to refine their ideas. A higher Sag nature is able to inspire others, which is the real strength of the fire signs. Sag is able to recognize the importance of others’ contributions and give others a moment in the spotlight. Sag generally has a great love of democratic freedoms, with friends in every walk of life. Their weakness is a lack of steady application to a project or course of study, tending to be too sporadic or impulsive in their efforts. Famous people with Sun in Sag include: Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., James Thurber, Winston Churchill, Charles de Gaulle, Patty Duke, Joe DiMaggio, and both Caroline and John Kennedy, Jr.
Venus enters passionate, committed Scorpio at 8:20 pm Wednesday. The lower Scorpio natures can be very controlling, but a mature Scorpio personality uses this Venus energy to uncover the hidden talents of others and bring those talents to the awareness of their possessors. A Scorpio can feel a huge sense of satisfaction when a child or student of theirs achieves something with talents they have helped to develop. Famous people with Venus in Scorpio include: Marie Antoinette, Joan Sutherland, Mary Martin, David McCallum, Andy Williams, Mohandas Gandhi, Billy Graham, Robert Vaughn, Sophia Loren, and Vladimir Horowitz.
Keeping an eye on the asteroids, Pallas Athena goes direct at 8:24 pm Tuesday, at 22 degrees, 26′ of Pisces. Pallas will hurry thru Pisces and enter Aries on Jan. 10, 2013. Pallas in Pisces can be both a warrior for social causes and a dedicated wife.

Another dreamer in North Carolina dreamed that she saw him speak during the summer campaign. “I saw Obama standing in a large crowd. He had a brilliant silver band that goes around the waist that sort of resembles a cummerbund. But larger than a cummerbund, more like armor that covered his chest, too. He was speaking to the crowd, which was very close to him. Then I heard: If this is spared, the whole nation will be spared. If this man is not spared, the whole nation will not be spared…”
The day that has seemed inevitable since summer is finally upon us. President-elect Barack Obama will take the oath of office on January 20 as prescribed in the Constitution. Actually the original document set March 4 as the inauguration day, but us modern hurry-up types moved it forward. Looking back, it would be more favorable to have the date in March, when the Sun would trine the election Sun.
I was not going to write an article on the inauguration, but a fellow astrologer emailed me all aflutter because the chart featured a Mercury retrograde plus a void-of-course Moon. To me, Mercury retrograde signifies trying to undo all the destructive acts and executive orders of the previous occupant of the White House (who shall not be named here). Perhaps we can look forward to this former law professor, Obama, restoring much of the integrity of the original Constitution. As for the Moon being voc, I started one of my better jobs under that aspect, and had to learn to ignore it as one year after aociated with the entrance of the Sun into Aries on thenother rolled by.
My heartiest congratulations to the new president-elect, Barack Obama, and best wishes for the new administration. Maybe you read my article about the princely and royal points activated in his birth chart. You can read that article here — http://milky-way-astrology.blogspot.com/2008/07/mystery-of-barack-obama-horoscope-what.html
Also I wanted to note that there was a Neptune station the Sunday before the election. At first I thought that I was not too keen about this station. But then it was further activated by a sextile to Venus, exact on the Wednesday after the election (7:56 am eastern time).
I interpret a Venus sextile to Neptune as very idealistic and hopeful. So which campaign offered themes more aligned with hope and ideals? Um, would you say that the Obama campaign iterated strong vibrations of hope and idealism? I would say so too.
Hope you enjoyed the fact that we had a Solar Eclipse late last week — at 6:13 am Eastern Daylight Time Aug. 1, 2008, at 9 degrees Leo. I will do another post with something about eclipses in each sign and whether it contacts (conjuncts) a planet in your own chart. For now, it is enough to know that this eclipse is in Leo, and will probably affect both Pres. Bush (ascendant Leo) and Barack Obama (Sun-sign Leo). In addition, the United States’ North Node is at 7 degrees Leo — so we will all feel some effect from this eclipse.
The Sabian symbol for the eclipse degree (from Dane Rudhyar) is: “Early morning dew sparkles as sunlight floods the field; the exalted feeling that rises w/in the soul of the individual who has successfully passed thru the long night which has tested his strength and his faith”. In general, many large companies have incorporation dates near the date of an eclipse. They are hit hard tho by negative transits over those “birth charts”. But in an election year, one should pay particular attention to the statements made by candidates within three to six weeks of an eclipse. The same goes for debates or speeches or other significant campaign events like endorsements.
Eclipses are neither good nor bad by themselves, but they tend to boost those who have been working long and hard toward a goal — and tear down those who have been breaking rules and generally lining their own pockets at the expense of millions of others.
The Solar Eclipse Week by Milky Way Maid
Happy Solar Eclipse to the lucky Leos! A Solar Eclipse is on the docket, you might say, for Friday Aug. 2 at 6:12 am Eastern Time, at 9 degrees Leo. It’s right on the Ascendant in Washington, DC, by the way., so it has a special importance to the presidential race all the way to November. You may wonder whose chart benefits more from this eclipse, John McCain or Barack Obama? Look at the eclipse chart first. In Washington, it has 9 degrees Leo rising and 28 degrees Aries at the Midheaven. Saturn (Democrats) is in the second house at 7 degrees Virgo and Jupiter (Republicans) in the sixth house at 14 degrees Capricorn. The GOP will seize on health care reforms as an issue, but because they are beholden to the insurance companies (Capricorn) they are really for the status quo. The Dems will work the economic issues and emphasize how people are hurting in this recession.
Obama is affected by this eclipse because his Sun is very close to the eclipse degree, at 11 Leo. However, McCain’s Mars is close, too, at 12 degrees Leo, but because the eclipse Mercury is at 12 Leo, I suspect that McCain will go on the offensive and attack Obama and the Dem platform — take note, tho, that McCain has been known for outrageous outbursts and this eclipse is goading him into another such outburst. (BTW it could be Hillary Clinton who goads him into this outburst; she knows how to push a guy’s buttons.) He could really shoot himself in the foot this fall or even in August. Personally I would think twice about putting such a man in charge of the red phone or the ‘football’. See also my recent article on the Obama birth chart.
Agree that a time of upheaval is coming; Saturn, Uranus opposed on Nov. 4
Other astrological events during the summer make the election unpredictable. Democrats will gather in Denver for their national convention in August – the same month as a solar eclipse and a partial lunar eclipse.
The events raise the possibility of President Bush somehow interfering with the election, said Robert Hand of Reston, Va.
In fact, most of the astrologers on the panel weren’t sure if the winner of the election would be the same person taking the oath of office on Inauguration Day. Some of them expressed concern about Obama’s personal safety.
