The celestial events taking place now are amazing. Pluto rules nations, and Capricorn rules governments. The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was from 1763 to 1778.This was the time of the American Revolution which culminated in the signing of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776.The next time that Pluto was to return to Capricorn was this November.
Today, the planet Saturn is in direct opposition to the planet Uranus. Saturn represents the status quo; and Uranus represents revolutionary change at a grassroots level. These two opposing forces meet each other head-on!
When you look at the charts ofMc-Cain and Obama, we see McCain is a Virgo, with moon in Aquarius and Pisces Rising.
Obama is a Leo, with moon in Gemini and Aquarius Rising.
Both these guys are successful go-getters. What will make the difference is which one of their charts has the strongest connection to the chart of the U.S. based on July 4, 1776, 2:24 p. m. I'll cut to the chase and tell you right off--it's the chart of Barack Obama, hands down.
Along with this being a once in a 250 year event Pluto in Capricorn means a major realignment of the world economy as well.
On November 27th Pluto goes back into Capricorn until 2023. If you ever wanted a signal that the world is in major reconstruction follow the path of Capricorn for the next fifteen years. The mantra that I give the transit of Pluto in Scorpio is ‘brick by brick and stone by stone’.
There's plenty of blame to go around for why the nation and the world finds itself in such a financial pickle. Greed. Lack of regulation. Too much easy money.
But some astrologers put much of the blame on that pesky one-time planet Pluto. Rumson astrologer Flo Higgins said Pluto is moving from Sagittarius (laissez-faire attitude, not following rules) to Capricorn (conservative, regulated).
"Things have got to be destroyed and rebuilt and that's what's happening in the world," Higgins said. "We're not doomed to eternity like this. It'll be okay, but we have to go through some life lessons.
Those who pooh-pooh astrological predicitions forget that they are essentially mathematical formula's, and their predictability is over the long term. And given their predicatability, they function well for long term global events. As for being irrational, as my skeptical friends like to dismiss them, nothing can be more irrational than Stock Market Capitalism.
For instance here is an interesting political astrological pre-election predicition.....
Saturn vs. Uranus: The Smackdown
Friday, October 31, 2008
On Tuesday, November 4th, Saturn in Virgo will be exactly opposite Uranus in Pisces. This hasn't happened since 1967, when the two planets were reversed -- Saturn in Pisces and Uranus in Virgo. Again in 2008, the times are indeed changing, as Dylan said. Back then we had the Vietnam war and the summer of love: two distinctly opposing poles in a roiling paradigm shift. Now we have youth, charisma, and hope writ large in the symbol that is Barack Obama. He has inspired millions and gotten us to take to the streets in a living, breathing network of change-making. All the organization and grassroots fundraising he's done is a testament to these beautiful progressive values. It is indeed interesting that Obama has Aquarius rising (the sign connected to the planet Uranus.) On the other hand, we have John Mccain, whose Saturn in Pisces is opposed to the Cosmic Taskmaster's current placement in Virgo. He's also a Virgo sun, so Saturn is sitting right on top of his sign, affecting his health, happiness, and making him angry all the time. Americans have a major choice to make right now, and the world is watching with baited breath. We can choose hope (Uranus/Obama) or we can choose fear (Saturn/Mccain). Just a quick word about the insanity of election day aspects: it doesn't look like it's necessarily going to be over by midnight. The moon and Mercury both change signs that day, Mars squares Neptune, and Saturn dukes it out with Uranus, putting everyone on edge. Be vigilant, and vote early if you can in your state. If not, clear your schedule and wait as long as it takes on that line at the polls. Document your experience there with your cell-phone camera. Don't be cowed by anyone that tells you can't vote -- voting suppression will be out in full-force in swing states, but documentation of irregularities will go far to prevent another stolen election. Even if we have to wait days, weeks, or months for a final result, let's hope that it reflects our democracy's best intentions.
India is awash in astrologers as well as mathmaticians and theoritical physicists, all of whose predictions are based upon the Vedic system; whether mathematical or astrological. And they too predicted Obama's win.

I have posted before on political astrology....

And I am not the only one to note the signifigance of te political astrological impact of the American election....
Obama, by Jupiter!
If the stars were aligned today for the coronation of the king of Bhutan, what does the president-elect's horoscope foretell?
Jupiter is why former president Ronald Reagan, a keen follower of astrological advice, took office as governor of California in January 1967 at the bizarre time of quarter past midnight. The giant planet was then high in the sky, promising a prosperous term for the king of the B movies. So it proved.
Might Jupiter have been similarly shining down on the victory of Barack Obama two days ago? Actually, no. By the time Obama was greeting the crowd in Chicago's Grant Park, Jupiter and most of the planets were below the horizon.
However, those looking for astrological omens for the Age of Obama (quite a few people, as a glance on the web confirms) have already noted that his inauguration – at noon on January 20 2009 – finds Jupiter perfectly aligned alongside the sun at the peak of the event's horoscope.
Most astrologers would look at the chart of the event and find it promising. By contrast, the inauguration of George W Bush in 2000 came dominated by Mars, planet of war.
So lets look at the new leadership of the U.S.
Barack Obama Astrology Natal Horoscope Report
Michelle Obama's Astrology Chart: The New First Lady - SpiritNow
Joe Biden is a Scorpio and is well suited to be the watery fire sign, not unlike Michele's Capricorn which is a watery earth sign, to balance off Obama.
Like many celebrities, Joe Biden has a stellium (more than three planets in one sign) in his chart. He has four planets in Scorpio, meaning that this is not a man to be messed with. He has the sun, Venus, Mars and Mercury in Scorpio. This line up speaks of pure power, as Scorpios are very good at politics, but they are ruthless when crossed! This many planets in Scorpio would also account for his incredible charisma.
And it is interesting to note that Sarah Pallins chart, she is an Aquarian, reveals her true self, which is that because of her Uranian/Neptunian nature she is a trickster. She is not what she seems.Scorpio is Novembers sign and it was not good for Pallin. She stung herself to political death.
All of these "sudden revelations" about Sarah Palin do smack of Uranus, though, and sure enough using this chart we have transiting Uranus retrograding over her progressed Midheaven. That would fit perfectly with her being picked out of nowhere and then this rapid meltdown.

Her Aquarius planets square Neptune in Scorpio. Transiting Neptune is on her Sun, reinforcing the Neptunian energy. Am I the only person here who is seeing someone who isn't who she professes to be? It's obvious to me that she's a phoney. Unfortunately, with that Neptunian energy she has going, she does have some people hypnotized into believing she's the real thing. And Venus in Aries. Please.She loves herself first.
I have posted here before about how Obama models himself on Lincoln....so lets look at their astrological coorespondence;
Barack Obama vs. Abraham Lincoln
September 22, 2008 ·
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.
Others have gone further in associating Obama with Lincoln and indeed with JFK through their astrological charts, let alone Obama's adoption of their political iconography.
Last March, prominent psychic, Gordon Michael Scallion, speaking to a group at the A.R.E. (Association for Research and Enlightenment, The Edgar Cayce Foundation) in Virginia Beach, channeled the information that Obama is a reincarnated Abe Lincoln-- a compelling if improvable thesis. Lincoln may have freed the slaves and defeated the Confederacy, but he did not live to complete his mission of reuniting the nation. Many of the deep divisions that persist today are the legacy of a reconstruction gone awry. Obama is passionate about uniting the country, as if to complete Lincoln’s unfinished business. His statement I don’t see red and blue states, I see the United States, echoes Lincoln’s sentiment to bind up the nation’s wounds. Pundits are already predicting that the electoral map will morph into the color purple. Obama often cites the motto on the Great Seal epluribus unum, out of many one. Unity is essential if we want to effect real political change and fulfill the founders’ vision.
And while saying Obama is the reincarnation of Lincoln is pushing it the political iconography being used by Obama of continuing the Lincoln legacy is psychically potent as a political metaphor within the American mindset as he well knows.
The Presidential Inauguration will be held on January 20, 2009. A week of festivities will include the Presidential Swearing in Ceremony, Inaugural Address, Inaugural Parade and a night of Inaugural Balls and galas honoring the new President of the United States. The theme for the 2009 presidential inauguration will be "A New Birth of Freedom," commemorating the 200th anniversary of Abraham Lincoln's birth. The words come from the Gettysburg address, and express Lincoln's hope that the sacrifice of those who died to preserve the nation shall lead to "a new birth of freedom" for our nation. The theme is particularly appropriate in light of the historic election of Senator Barack Obama.
Words of Lincoln Will Be Woven Into Obama Inaugural Activities
And lets not forget that when Obama won his first primary we were still in the Chinese Year of the Pig...we are now in the last phase of the Year of the Rat...... by the time he takse power we will be in the year of the Ox.
A Rat Year is a time of hard work, activity, and renewal. This is a good year to begin a new job, get married, launch a product or make a fresh start. Ventures begun now may not yield fast returns, but opportunities will come for people who are well prepared and resourceful. The best way for you to succeed is to be patient, let things develop slowly, and make the most of every opening you can find.
the year of the Rat is still ruled by the cold of winter and the darkness of night. Those who speculate indiscriminately and overextend themselves will come to a sad reckoning.
In the Chinese zodiac, McCain is a rat and Obama is an ox. "2008 is a rat year, but next year is Year of the Ox and that favors Obama," says Weber. According to Weber the rat is a sign ruled by water and that makes McCain's personality one that conflicts with the energy of the coming year and explains much of his actions. "Looking at McCain during the debates, you could tell his emotions fluctuated and, like water, were more fluid."
Rats are considered positive, charismatic, hardworking and industrious and their negative qualities are over-ambition, ruthlessness, intolerant and scheming. If McCain came into office, it's possible that his emotions would get the better of him, as he's often known for a hot temper and quick reactions.
"Watching Obama in the debates showed his Ox qualities of being unflappable and steady," Weber explains. An ox is associated with the earth element and is known for being dependable, calm, methodical, and resolute and their negative qualities make them stubborn, materialistic, rigid and demanding.
According to Weber, McCain's rat energy would keep him from being effective in the Oval Office because the 2009 energy is earth and earth dams water. "It would be a "dammed" presidency from the start," she quips. Even so, rats are industrious and opportunity-driven and have great qualities for business, but with next year's energy, the rat energy isn't harmonious because water added to earth makes mud.
Obama, on the other hand, has earth qualities that will create a harmonious start with the earth energy of next year, and Weber explains, that next year has a double earth energy making the steady approach of the next president important in order to settle down the "rollercoaster we've been on" and take care of important things like America's standing in the world and investing in American infrastructure. "You could look at it as McCain's Year of the Rat is almost over, but Obama's Year of the Ox is the future. Speaking purely to the feng shui of time and energy, feng shui supports Obama over McCain."
A rat's life
For those who believe that the world is shaped by historical coincidence (a small minority populated entirely by sports commentators), a more worrying US election trend is also visible - 2008 is the Chinese Year of the Rat. In five of the last six Year of the Rat American elections - 1996, 1984, 1972, 1948 and 1936 - the incumbent president has been re-elected.
George W. Bush's greatest political asset has been his ability to win elections in which he seemingly had little or no hope either before or after the votes had been cast.
Let us hope that this Rat Year election proves a bridge too far even for him.
The Year of the Rat has been a rough one for China's richest, with fortunes being dragged down amid a 60% plunge in mainland stocks and a 50% drop in Hong Kong shares in 2008. The combined net worth of the 400 richest dropped to $173 billion from $288 billion. The top 40 lost $68 billion, or 57%. The minimum net worth slipped $20 million to $180 million.
On the Western calendar, the start of the New Year falls on Monday, January 26, 2009 — The Year of the Ox.
The OX year is a conservative year, one of traditions and values. This is not a year to be outrageous. A slow but steady year.This OX year will bring stability and growth where patience and diligence pays off.
This is a year of Harvest - when we reap what we have sown. Take care of business this year, do not let things slide.
