Barack Obama releases birth certificate (again)

Barack Obama birth certificateAstrologers are always hunting for birth information, so we were the first ones on the trail of Barack Obama’s birth certificate.  Not that we believed he might be from Kenya, but we wanted to be able to construct an accurate birthchart. You can read the thread of my articles on the subject here along with my astrological profiles of the President.

At the moment Mars and Jupiter are moving into a conjunction that will culminate just after midnight (EDT) on Sunday May 1st, and right now they are within two degrees of each other and of the President’s progressed ascendant.  This may be a little too  geeky for some of my readers, but the simplification here is that the planet of aggression and inspiration (Mars) is aligning with the planet of expansion and opportunity (Jupiter) in Mars’s own sign of Aries, the sign of self-motivation and courageous pursuit of one’s Truth.

It’s hard to conjure up anyone who exemplifies the combination of Marsy aggression and Jupiter’s braggodocio better than Donald Trump, whose relentless pursuit of Obama’s birth certificate over the past few weeks led to the President’s announcement yesterday.  And as it happens, shows Mars sitting right on the ascendant where it becomes a part of his persona.

The progressed chart shows our evolution through time, and the progressed ascendant reveals our changing image as we project it to others, and as we see ourselves.  With Mars and Jupiter, both in Aries, transiting President Obama’s progressed ascendant he is asserting (Mars) more authority and his poll numbers are already up as a result of the announcement yesterday.

Warning: political rant ahead

On a non-astrological note, many of the President’s critics are saying now that he should have released the birth certificate sooner.  has the entire history of this insanity.  But my question is, has any President in the history of the United States been asked to release his birth certificate?  And even after Obama released the “Certification of Live Birth” suspicions continued.  Even now there is talk that the actual birth certificate is a forgery.  Obama is not the first president to have had a foreign parent – Woodrow Wilson’s mother was English and Herbert Hoover’s mother was Canadian.  Perhaps we consider Kenya to be more foreign than England or Canada?

Surely there are more important issues facing Americans than this distraction over whether or not Barack Obama has fulfilled his duty to disclose that he is an American.  The timing of this craziness in the midst of an important budget debate makes this the perfect distraction.  “Look over here folks, just ignore the people in Washington who are stealing your jobs and giving your money to the Wall Street billionaires.”

Rant over.  We will now return to your astrological programming.

    This whole “birthing” thing is so interesting to me~ I get the circulating e-mails from a family member. Trump’s participation suggests a big dose of spin w/big money, but this brouhaha was rolling before he joined. It’s like Obama is “The Other” personified; everything about him seems to violate a certain old-fashioned (xenophobic?) picture of the “true” America. People’s core values are taking a direct hit, which is very painful. Acting out relieves some of the pressure, and he’s the perfect target. It may rise again in a different manner.

    ”Look over here folks, just ignore the people in Washington who are stealing your jobs and giving your money to the Wall Street billionaires.”

    Exactly! How sad is it that American politics has become a 3-ring circus?

    Deceit, illusion and spin – I think we can expect to see a lot of that from Trump, who is delusional (Neptune transit!) if he thinks he could actually be king, er, I mean, president. Methinks he’ll have second thoughts if he gets far enough into the primaries that he has to release his financials.

    Mitt Romney’s father, George Romney, was born in Chihuahua, Mexico in 1907 — and ran for president in 1968. NO ONE questioned his eligibility to run. Back when Arnold Schwarzenegger was the POPULAR governor of California, Republicans like Orrin Hatch and Dana Rohrabacher fought hard to get the “natural born” requirement repealed JUST so Arnold could run. George Romney…Arnold Schwarzenegger…Barack Obama. Three men. Two of them NOT born in the US, but one never had his eligibility questioned, and another had Republicans trying to CHANGE THE CONSTITUTION so he could run. Only one of these three men was actually born to an American mother IN AN AMERICAN HOSPITAL, and he is the only one having his eligibility and citizenship questioned. He’s also the only one who’s not white? Just a coinkydink? I hardly think so.

    “People’s core values are taking a direct hit”. LOL… These kind of “core values” desperately need to take some direct hits.
