Obama’s Grandmother and the South Node

A reader wrote to me the other day about an article she had read where a Vedic astrologer predicted that Obama would be assassinated because Ketu (the South Node of the Moon) would be conjunct Obama’s Sun.

I dearly want to respect my colleagues, but I feel that when we predict death of any kind we are stepping over the line.  First, I’m not sure how possible it is, and second, I’m not sure how useful it is to have that kind of information.

The conjunction of the South Node to the natal Sun is something that occurs for all of us every 19 years or so.  I looked up my own last transit of the South Node to my Sun, and since my Sun conjuncts Saturn, another “malefic”, a Vedic or traditional astrologer might predict terrible things for that day.  As far as I know, nothing horrible happened although I did post an article on Lindsay Lohan’s “annus horribilis.”  Maybe that was the way the South Node expressed itself.

The South Node represents our past and things we must learn from the past.  The conjunction of the South Node to the Sun, our Essential Self, may put us in touch with something unfinished from an earlier part of our life that needs resolution.  Obama’s grandmother IS his past – she raised him and is credited for helping to shape him into the man he is today.  The timing of the transiting South Node across his Sun at this time appears significant in light of the failing health of his grandmother, and the fact that she may not survive to see him elected which would coincide with the exact hit of the South Node to the Sun.

A New Birth Certificate for John McCain

A few weeks ago my daily newspaper (Sagittarius rules publishing and the media in general along with religion) contained a DVD called The Obsession, an “expose” of Islamic Sharia law.  Evidently the film was made in 2005 and was distributed to 28 million homes.

, my new blogging brother here on BeliefNet, reported yesterday that a mosque in Dayton, Ohio was teargassed and suggests that the spread of fear through this DVD was directly responsible. Several bloggers are researching the source of the DVD and have come up with a group called the Clarion Fund. Aziz writes,

Anyone who tries to disclaim any link between this despicable attack and the release of 20 million copies of the Obsession DVD is either a fool or a liar. That DVD was intended to bring about precisely this kind of demonization. What is most shocking about the Obsession DVD is that it is most likely funded by you would think would know all too well the wages of this kind of directed hate, scapegoating, and fear-mongering.

Incidentally, it doesn’t stop here. There’s a new Islamophobic film due to be released in early October, in time for Eid al Fitr: . This is a “” that is clearly aimed at influencing the election in November.

Follow the links, they’re very interesting.  One links to Richard Silverstein’s blog, which supports peace between Israelis and Arabs, suggesting that the Clarion Fund is run by the Republican Jewish Coalition.  I’m old enough to remember when there were no Jewish Republicans, so that whole idea to me is bizarre enough.  But it seemed to me that the release of this DVD right before the election is meant to create fear in the […]

John McCain’s Erratic Behavior: An Astrological View

Henry Paulson

Financial astrologer Ray Merriman said last week in our workshop that Aries Henry Paulson and Sagittarian Ben Bernanke did a fine job during the big expansion of the Pluto in Sagittarius era, but that they don’t have a clue how to deal with the contraction of Pluto in Capricorn.  This is an interesting point, but the chart of Henry Paulson (3/28/1946, Palm Beach Florida, time unknown) is even more interesting in light of the current financial debacle.

Paulson’s Aries Sun is exactly opposed by Neptune, describing someone whose Aries dynamism is obscured by the mists of Neptunian compassion and spirituality.  Paulson, former CEO of Goldman Sachs, is also one of the largest donors to environmental causes and he is a dedicated Christian Scientist.  Mercury in his chart is conjunct his Sun, indicator of extreme intelligence, and therefore also opposed by Neptune.  Moreover, Mercury is retrograde in his chart which suggests that he finds it difficult to feel that he has made his views understood; combined with the opposition to Neptune this is a challenging aspect for communication skills.  Still, Paulson has achieved great success despite these odds, possibly thanks to a Grand Trine in air planets that includes a trine from Neptune to Uranus, facilitating the flow of information (Uranus/air) in a creative and flowing way (Neptune).

However, Paulson has an impetuous side as shown by a square of retrograde Jupiter to Mars in his chart.  Jupiter is expansive and seeks to aggrandize the other planet in a challenging aspect like the square, and Mars, being our impulse and drive, can become reckless and impulsive when squared by Jupiter.  Saturn conjuncts Paulson’s Mars and squares Jupiter, putting somewhat of a damper on this […]
