Barak Obama’s Moment

By Mary Plumb | January 12, 2009

Most of us are looking ahead to the inauguration with a hope for a better time to come. I found an article on a new blog, The Political Astrology Blog, which captures well the altruistic side of Neptune in Aquarius.

Astrologer Patrick Watson has a fine article called Barak Obama’s Rise to Power, which focuses on his natal Neptune and the eclipse patterns in his recent life.

(One thing I’d like to add is that Barak Obama’s prenatal solar eclipse is at 26°25′ Aquarius, conjunct the US Sibly Moon at 27° Aquarius. I noted Michelle’s prenatal solar eclipse degree and her husband’s chart in my previous blog post, Michelle Obama.)

In case Watson’s charts don’t look familiar to you – he is using Whole Sign houses, with 0 degrees of the sign on the first house cusp and the Ascendant and Midheaven degrees marked in their respective houses.

Thanks Patrick for your fine work.

Take good care one and all.

Mary

Early Thoughts on Obama

By Mary Plumb | November 16, 2008

We’ve enjoyed several weeks of relief and hopefulness about the US election, and articles about the President-elect are beginning to appear on the web. Like many of you, I’m delighted to be looking at some new figures on the national scene and I’ve selected a few of the early blog posts.

Joyce Hopewell is a teacher of the Huber Method of Astrological Psychology and her article Barak Obama Revisted includes assessment of Obama’s “Age Point”, a technique unique to the Huber’s which finds a particular place in the chart for each year of life. Since Obama has just celebrated his 47th birthday, “his Age Point is in Libra in the 8th house.”

Elizabeth Spring writes on the similarities between Jung’s and Obama’s astrological charts. Read Elizabeth’s article for a deeper understanding, but for a start, both gentlemen have 6th house Leo Suns (square Neptune), Aquarius rising, and Venus in Cancer.

Terry Lamb’s writes enthusiastically about the team Obama-Rahma! The Chemistry of Obama and His New Chief of Staff. She uses a solar chart for Emanuel (no known birth time) who is a Sag with several planets in Scorpio.

And for a down-loadable PDF file interpreting Obama’s natal horoscope (written by Liz Greene) go here.

Enjoy – and please do leave your comments and suggestions.

Chiron with the North Node

By Mary Plumb | October 19, 2008

Chiron, the celestial representative of the maverick and the wise and wounded centaur, will station direct on October 25 at 21°09′ Aquarius, conjunct the North Node. The two bodies (along with Neptune) have been close all year and were also conjunct at Chiron’s retrograde station in May. Astrologer Terry Lamb has been writing about this combination for awhile. Her new political blog post McCain Rubs Salt in the Great American Wound brings us up to date with the possibilities of a great healing inherent in this combination. Enjoy!

Financial News for the Brave

By Mary Plumb | October 12, 2008

Most of us are galvanized by the graphs and commentary on financial markets (Look, it’s world-wide now!) that is dominating the collective news. It seems essential to turn off the media long enough to keep our balance and sanity with whatever it is that deeply restores our own eco-system. When ready for another look, here’s a link to great collection gathered by mundane astrologer and blogger David Crook on stellar insights 108. You’ll find Ray Merriman’s take on the week in the markets, as well as classic articles by Bill Meridian on the Federal Reserve and the History of Stock Market Astrology. Thanks, David.

TMA readers, please enjoy (?) the blog, post a comment if you like, and then maybe get out for some fresh air or dinner with a good friend..we’re all in this together!
