One final (I promise!) look at the Void Moon in Presidential Inaugurations

This is a research project that I have been pondering, and now astrologer  has done the work for me:

The interest in the Void-Of-Course moon (VOC) and the presidential inauguration on this blog has prompted me to do some research. Where a President dies or resigns the office, the Vice-President completes the Presidential term as President. This is called Presidency by succession.

The following figures have been rounded within acceptable error for simplicity’s sake- The basic facts,

• One in six presidential terms have been completed by succession.

• One in six VOC presidential terms have been completed by succession

• One in four presidential terms begin under VOC

• One in four inaugurations occur under VOC

Primary conclusion: VOC has no noticeable effect on whether or not a president finishes his or her term.

The remainder of the post lists every presidential inauguration that has taken place under the Void Moon. Rodney has used only the five classical planets and has not included Uranus, Neptune, Pluto or Chiron. Even so, his conclusions are indisputable.

The Void Moon is a construct which comes from the horary branch of astrology which seeks to answer questions based on the astrological chart for the moment the question is asked. In this context the Moon, being the fastest moving planet, tells much of the story.  All indications are taken into consideration – hence the concept of the Moon being Void as it hurtles unobstructed into the next sign.

Hopefully this comprehensive research will set many minds at ease!!

Chief Justice Roberts gets a Mulligan: A new inaugural chart?

This article originally quoted the 7:30 pm time from the San Francisco Chronicle.  I have updated the link to the two charts with the correct time and amended the post. Chief Justice Roberts flubbed the lines in the Presidential Oath of Office on Tuesday when he put the word “faithfully” in the wrong order.  President Obama, evidently out of respect for Roberts, said the words exactly as Roberts had said them which led conservative commentators to complain that Obama wasn’t really President because he hadn’t said the oath correctly.

has an interesting article about this noting that the language in the Oath is actually incorrect, and that Roberts’ internal copy editor made the change without even thinking about it.

Of course we know that it was all because of Mercury Retrograde and the Void of Course Moon. 🙂  Under the influence of Mercury retrograde we often need a do-over, or an opportunity to get something right the second time.

Last night, in a move that will make astrologers around the world exhale in relief, Chief Justice Roberts re-administered the Oath of Office at the White House at 7:35 pm on January 21st. So which astrological chart is the correct one?

The Constitution says that the Presidency begins at noon on January 20, so I would argue that this chart is correct.  The noon chart is the chart for the Presidency, which is really what we are interesting.  It’s hard to know what importance to place on the chart for the signing of the Oath, which evidently But there is obviously some significance to the oath having been repeated, so let’s see what a difference this new chart makes.

Of course the big Pluto transits reported a few days ago are still in force, but the charts […]

Ted Kennedy collapses yesterday

In the midst of the jubilant rejoicing yesterday at the Congressional Lunch, Senator Ted Kennedy Ted Kennedy collapsed with a seizure and had to be rushed to the hospital.

Senator Kennedy was diagnosed with brain cancer last May, as transiting Chiron made the first swipe of a square to his natal Chiron.  Chiron is the planet(oid, some say) that presides over the body/mind/spirit balance of an individual and is therefore often present when there is illness of some kind.  The first phase of the Chiron square cycle occurred in March, but Kennedy was not hospitalized until May when the Full Moon hit a sensitive Mars/Mercury conjunction in his chart.

It’s interesting that each phase of the square of Chiron to Kennedy’s natal Chiron has coincided with his stepping out in public to support Obama.  The first phase correlated with his announcement that he was supporting Obama; during the second phase while he was undergoing chemotherapy he traveled to the Democratic Convention to give a speech, despite health concerns.  We also saw the presence of Chiron in Caroline Kennedy’s sudden interest in politics.  Chiron is not only the Wounder and Healer – it is also the Mentor.  Chiron teaches that what we learn in our own healing we must pass on to others.

The final square of Chiron to Kennedy’s Chiron just occurred about ten days ago, and at the time of the seizure transiting Mars was exactly opposite Pluto in Kennedy’s chart, squaring the conjunction of his progressed Mercury (mind) and Uranus (electricity/nervous system) that I wrote about back in May:  “The fact that Kennedy’s progressed Mercury is conjunct progressed Uranus right now is also interesting, echoing this Mercury/Uranus connection that electrifies the brain and creates an experience that changes everything.”

Kennedy’s doctors reported yesterday that the seizure […]

Happy Inauguration Day! A look at the chart for the US

inaugurationNo matter what side of the election you were on, there’s no denying that this is the beginning of a new era in American politics.  One of the major planetary cycles occurring for the United States right now is the challenging transit (square) of Pluto (death and rebirth) to the Midheaven of the US chart (I use the Sibley chart), signifying the government and position of the nation in relation to the rest of the world.

The last time Pluto made a challenging transit to the US Midheaven was beginning in December of 1971 when Pluto in Libra was conjunct the US Midheaven (at 1 Libra).  At the time, the US was engaged in a bloody and relentless quagmire of a war in Vietnam, and as Pluto began to move across the US Midheaven the US government began withdrawing troops from Vietnam, and by the time Pluto moved off the US Midheaven the War in Vietnam was over.

The Watergate burglary occurred during this period, and after the burglars were convicted the coverup by the Nixon administration was revealed under the auspices of the second hit of Pluto over the US Midheaven.  Previous to the Watergate burglary, with Pluto hovering within two degrees of the US Midheaven, the Pentagon Papers were released, revealing years of government deception.   Pluto, in its guise as Lord of the Underworld, takes us into the darkness of closely held secrets and reveals them, and the American people have not trusted their government since then.

Here we are today, with the next Pluto transit affecting the US Midheaven, and we are in an eerily similar situation to the previous Pluto cycle – stuck in a quagmire of a war, with the secrets of theBush administration […]

The astrology of Inauguration Day

In the field of astrological study known as “mundane astrology,” events and countries also have birthcharts that can be analyzed. The chart for Inauguration Day is also the chart for the Obama administration, because it is the moment of birth of the new government.  Although many astrologers have called for a change of the time of the Inauguration to permit the Moon to enter Sagittarius and thereby avoid the dreaded “Void of Course” period, the Noon time is mandated by the twentieth Amendment of the Constitution and would require an act of Congress to change.

I am less concerned by the Moon being void of course (making no aspects to another planet) than I am interested in the fact that the Moon on Inauguration Day sits right on the Midheaven of Barack Obama’s chart.  The Moon here represents the heart of the People, and it sits on the point where Obama fulfills his desire to serve the People (the Midheaven shows not only career, but where we fulfill the destiny of our Life Path).  He certainly begins his term with the full support of the American people: his approval rating is somewhere between 75 and 80%.  That is not surprising given the fact that transiting Jupiter is conjunct Jupiter in Obama’s chart, something we call the “Jupiter Return” that is associated with abundance and good things.

The Inauguration Day chart has a triple conjunction of Mercury, the Sun and Jupiter in Aquarius, all sitting right on Jupiter in Obama’s chart.  Jupiter here brings its expansion of opportunities to the realm of ideas (Mercury) and the very essence of the Administration (Sun) which is very auspicious.  These planets also oppose Obama’s Mercury, however, which suggests that there will be […]
