US Presidential Election
November 6, 2012
Anybody sensible to the
state of affairs on our planet will most likely agree that Barack Obama is the
better choice as President of the United States for these coming four years.
With Mitt Romney coming to power we pretty much can kiss the world goodbye. Not
that I would have the illusion with Obama winning everything will be okay
thereafter. However in my understanding, him being reelected will rekindle a
shimmer of hope in these dark times we find ourselves living in.
Hurricane Sandy, despite
all its destruction and hardship has to be given the laurels of having shaken
the American people back to their senses. New Jersey’s Governor Chris Christie is
a prime example of that radical shift. Sandy has given President Obama one last
chance to be recognized. Once again it became clear that Mr. Obama’s top
priority is the wellbeing of all the American people, and beyond that of all
Knowing astrology all
along I have been convinced that Obama would win the November 6 elections. I
would like to show you how and why I came to this conclusion.
Barack Hussein Obama

Obama’s birth chart speaks
of a caring humanitarian leader (Venus in Cancer conjunct Vulcanus, Aquarius
rising, Sun in Leo). Planet Mercury in Leo and the sixth house is the focal
point of his chart, clearly revealing his intelligence and the ability to channel
leading-edge solutions in complex and difficult environments (Black Moon in the
seventh house, Hades in the third and Mars in Virgo at the cusp of house
eight). With the Moon in early Gemini conjunct Kronos in the fourth house, he will
be recognized as a wise and judicious ruler who cares for his homeland. Neptune
in the ninth house is the highest planet in his chart, speaking of idealism,
however also revealing that at times having to deal with overwhelming issues
far extending his powers. Overall this is the chart of an intelligent, enthusiastic
and charismatic individual who will stand strong and focused in the tempests
life’s path is exposing him to.
Willard Mitt Romney

EST, Detroit, MI
I have rectified Romney’s
time of birth, figuring that the Moon has to be in Sagittarius. Also the rising
sign Leo makes lots of sense to me. However for this short analysis of his
birth chart I will stick to planetary positions in respective signs and the
aspects formed amongst them. The Sun in Pisces, together with retrograde
Mercury in the sign of Pisces already speaks volumes; indicating that he is a
confused soul, not really knowing of what he got himself into here in this
lifetime. The gifts of thinking straight and problem solving are definitely not
his strongest traits. He may be an idealist but he lacks realism. The Moon conjunct
Jupiter indicates him being born into a wealthy family, as well as his often presumptuous
behavior typical of someone not in touch with the common man. There’s no doubt
in my mind that Romney would make a terrible president, probably only surpassed
by George W. Bush’s brightness.
November 6, 2012, 0:00 a.m. EST, Washington, DC
Every day, even every
moment has its own unique – and never to be repeated – signature. Hence, which
of the two candidates will be victorious has to emerge from the structural
patterns of November 6, 2012. And then, this had to find support by what that
day means for either of the two.
So let’s first have a look
at what the general message November 6 will be:
Numerology: Every four
years the first Tuesday of the month of November is traditionally Election Day
in the US. This year it happens that the first 13 days of November are in
sequence with the Mayan Dreamspell Calendar. November 1, is a 1-day (1 Caban –
Red Magnetic Earth). The 13 days of the Caban wave are the beginning of a fresh
52-day cycle (Blue Western Castle), being the 13th of the 20 waves in
the 260-day revolving pattern of the Tzolk’in. Caban is the cycle of dreaming,
of envisioning creation. The 6th day of this cycle will be 6 Ik,
White Rhythmic Wind. Along with the first and the eleventh day of any 13-day
cycle, day 6 is empowered by itself, meaning that Wind, spirit, the unseen
which holds everything together is penetrating the web of existence. Applying
classical numerology, reducing month, day and year to basic numbers, November
6, 2012 reads 11-6-5, which adds up to 22, (or 2-6-5 which adds up to 13),
which further can be reduced to a 4. Note that aside from the digits 1 through
9, the 11 and the 22 are the only double digits seen as archetypal, they’re
called ‘master numbers’, indicating great gifts as well as great challenges. The
13 represents death and rebirth, and the 4 is down-to-earth and realistic, building
foundations for a sustainable development.
Astrology: What stands out
is that planet Mercury is stationary on November 6, turning retrograde shortly
after 6 p.m. Washington, DC time. The good news is that the election begins
while Mercury is still moving direct. A rule of thumb is, the slower a planet
moves the stronger its impact. Mercury is the planet of
communications, information and human intelligence in general. Mercury is also
known as Hermes, the messenger of the gods. In the Tarot, Mercury is
represented by card one of the major Arcana, the Magician. Particularly when
retrograde, Mercury also can act as trickster, throwing sticks into the fabric
of time; delaying, disrupting or even deceiving. However, Mercury comes to a
standstill at 4 deg18' Sagittarius, just two degrees shy of opposing the Black Moon. Mercury reversing
its direction before touching the axis of Moon’s closest approach to Earth is a
good sign. This could be read as having second thoughts before being engulfed by
disintegration and chaos, as the axis of the Moon’s apogee-perigee is
the gravitational center for dark and undigested emotions.
Mercury's station falls into the 5th line of hexagram 34 (Great Strength, often meaning too much strength that is creating opposition, like a goat ramming its head against a fence). Within the context of this event, 'too much force' expressed in an unprecedented bombardment of the public by political ad campaigns. The fifth line reads: "One subdues oneself in order to end all confrontations. No remorse." This hints that now too much force should now be avoided, that difficulties can be dissolved by harmonious means.
Furthermore, within less
than two hours of Mercury’s change of direction, the Moon will reach its third
quarter. The waning half moon will be right at the center of Leo; whereas the Sun will
come to the 15th degree of Scorpio, bringing the Sun/Moon midpoint to zero degree Libra. The four directions of the cardinal cross are the main pillars of our orientation in space. Their activation indicates a realignment of earthly realms with cosmic principals, making this day stand out as a change of tide.
While these important alignments
occur the polls are still open. The
waning half moon marks the turning point towards assimilation and understanding,
representing a crisis of ideas and ideology, old assumptions being meant to be
questioned and transcended.
Now let’s have a look at
the two candidates’ birth charts in the
light of the November 6 election. There’s a number of different methods
astrology applies in order to understand of how a certain day will be
The transiting Moon is in
Obama’s sun sign Leo, bringing his charisma to a glow. Further promising are
transiting planets Venus and Jupiter, sextiling his natal Sun from either side,
their mutual midpoint conjunct his natal Sun. Calculating the Davison time/space
midpoint chart of Obama’s birth and election night reveals Moon/Neptune aligned
with transiting Pluto right in his natal Sun/Moon axis, empowered by the aligning
midpoint of transit Jupiter and natal Mercury. This alignment indicates
overwhelming public sympathy. This is underlined by Davison midpoint Sun in
applying conjunction with Davsion midpoint Jupiter in the early degrees of
Aries, assembling right on his natal midpoint of Ascendant and Moon.
What stands out is the transiting
Black Moon conjunct his natal Lunar Nodes. This alignment was exact on October
31, days after Sandy had hit. The transiting Saturn/Pluto midpoint is lined up
with his Nodal axis too. And then there is the Davison midpoint Black moon
honing in on opposing Romney’s natal Sun.
Based on all this, I am predicting
a land slide victory for President Obama which will be shaking the Republicans
to their marrow. In order to survive they will have to reinvent themselves.
