Obama declared winner with natal Sun rising!
History is made in America!
And if the birth time for Barack Obama is correct at 7:24 pm AHST (Aug 4, 1961, Honolulu, HI) then the midpoint of the fortunate combo of Jupiter-Uranus is pointing to Obama’s natal ASC…
Jupiter-Uranus = ASC: optimism; personal self-confidence; success; knowing the best will happen; fortunate twists in the way things transpire. (Tyl.)
So at 11:00 pm est – an Hour of Mercury – when I heard ABC News announce that Barack Obama is to be 44th president of the United States, I saw that his natal Sun 12Leo33 was rising at that moment, with natal Moon 3Gem21 in 10th house of Career and Public Status.
You’ll find more details, an image of the announcement’s chart with Obama’s natal chart here:
And one more thing which has been ‘going on’ astrologically during the campaign…the transiting Uranus-Neptune midpoint 5Pis13 is conjunct Barack Obama’s natal Chiron 5Pis19. That he is called to act as shaman for the collective seems a given. That absolutely everyone appreciates how he fulfills this role is another – thornier – matter.
