Election Predictions Using Astrology

Madison asked in the comment stream whether astrology could predict the outcome of the elections.  If you’ve been reading this column for awhile you know that it is my belief that we are not meant to predict the future.  First – we create our own future to a great extent, and therefore the future is in constant flux.  Second – if we knew the future the process that we take to get there would mean very little and it is this process that is the key to our soul’s evolution and growth.

Astrology gives us eerily accurate insight into the cycles and trends of our lives, and if we look backwards we can usually target exactly the astrological cycles that were present when specific events took place.  Looking forwards and predicting events, though, is much less accurate.  Still, astrologers attempt to do so, sometimes with great success as when back in 2000 astrologer Jacob Schwartz predicted that Al Gore would win the popular vote and lose the election.

The opposition between Uranus and Saturn that will be in effect on Election Day reflects the choice between Change (Uranus) and Experience (Saturn) that has driven this whole election cycle so far.  But now that McCain (Experience) has put Sarah Palin (Change) on his ticket, we have two sets of candidates that possess both a Change candidate and an Experience candidate.  Astrologer that several times when Saturn and Uranus were in conjunction or opposition during an election the Republican candidate won, but in all cases it was a change from the previous party.  However, history tells us that when the economy is poor the Democratic candidate wins.

In any case, the astrological signatures suggest that the election once again will not […]

Sarah Palin’s Astrological Chart

Palin ChartMany of you have asked me to post her chart, so here is the Solar chart, using noon as the birthtime since the time is unavailable.  I know that Jude Cowell is using a sunrise chart which is for 7:06 am.  WIth all respect to Jude, I prefer the noon chart because it provides a better idea of the placement of the Moon which travels about a degree every two hours

Update: Sally McDonald at Astrowold has posted a 4:40 pm time that came from astrologer Claudia Dikinis, via Margie Herskovitz from NCGR.  Until there’s some kind of confirmation I’m hesitant to use a birth time. BUT, the buzz around the astrosphere has speculated a Leo ascendant, and the 4:40 pm time does have Leo rising although any afternoon birthtime will have the Moon in Aquarius which makes less sense to me.

Update 2:  Sally’s friend Claudia tells me that an AFAN newsletter reports the birth time of 4:40 pm is AA (reliable).  Still no word on the source, though.

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.

I’ll post more as it comes available.

McCain’s Transits and the Palin Family Values

I know I said I was going to take a short break from politics, but this is just too wild.  Sarah Palin, John McCain’s pick for Vice President, announced today that her 17-year old daughter Bristol is pregnant.  This is a bit ironic in light of Governor Palin’s support for funding only abstinence education in schools.  Bristol Palin is not married.

Barack Obama says, “Back off these stories,” that families are off-limits.  He reminds us that his mother was 18 when he was born.  Still, when family issues become signals of hypocrisy, are they not important to investigate?  The right wing is calling these investigations “misogynstic.”  But as I recall, the same investigations were carried out when John Edwards betrayed his family and his campaign, and the last time I looked he was a man.

And more importantly, could we have seen this in Palin’s chart?  My reader Jay asked this question a few days ago, and said she had a feeling that something might happen to cause her to drop out of the race.

Transiting Saturn is beginning a transit over Palin’s Pluto and opposite Chiron in her chart, and certainly that suggests a stressful couple of weeks.  But it’s a one-hit transit, and not a major life change.  Neptune is exactly conjunct her Sun right now, which can create some confusion, illusion and delusion (the Neptune trio).  Neptune transiting the Sun can cloud the issues and erode one’s confidence.   I have more often seen clients fall victim to delusion than perpetrate it under this transit.  Would I predict her downfall here?  Not necessarily.

We can actually see a greater degree of trouble in McCain’s chart. McCain has Saturn (reality, discipline, structure) opposed by Neptune’s dreamy misty rose colored classes.  This gives him difficulty in seeing the reality of any situation, and because […]

The McCain-Palin Ticket: An Astrological Perspective

John McCain & Sarah Palin

Note: This will be my last political post for a short while – politics is fascinating but too much of anything is not always a good thing. An obsession with politics can too easily take us away from our own internal process and a life that is grounded in a greater reality.

(If you missed Friday’s article about Sarah Palin, catch up here.) One of the most interesting tools that astrology provides is a glimpse into the inner workings of interpersonal relationships.  Evidently McCain only met Sarah Palin once, at a governors meeting, before choosing her as his running mate, so their chemistry is untested.

I’ve updated the original profile of Sarah Palin to reflect my (educated) guess that Palin’s Moon is in Capricorn, and if that is true it harmonizes with McCain’s Moon, also in Capricorn.  The Capricorn moon has a deep-rooted drive for success and achievement of one’s goals – there is a strong sense of responsibility and respect for the establishment.

McCain and Palin share a conflict in their charts between this need for the established structure.  McCain’s Virgo Sun respects rules and requires order, and the Capricorn Moon and Saturn (ruler of Capricorn) retrograde in his chart depict a never-ending struggle to live up to one’s own regulations.  On the other hand, Mars (in volatile Leo) squares Uranus in his chart revealing his notorious temper and rebelliousness.  Palin’s Saturn conjuncts her Mars, suggesting that she must channel her drive and desires (Mars) through the rigidity of Saturn, and this combined with her Capricorn Moon is a strong indicator for someone who adheres to the rules and regulations of the status quo.  On the other hand, her strong Aquarian nature makes her a […]

The Astrology of the Democratic Convention

The two overriding planetary aspects shadowing the Democratic National Convention over the next few days ia a long-term conjunction of Chiron (wounding and healing) to the North Node (the ascending point where the path of the Moon crosses the path of the Sun around the Earth, from our perspective on Planet Earth).  The North Node is not a planet, but in astrology it symbolizes the path of our future evolution. The conjunction of Chiron to the North Node began back in June and will continue through October.

The North Node opposes the South Node (the descending point on the path of the Sun), so an aspect to one point affects the other point as well.  The South Node denotes the past – issues and ideas that hold us back from evolving towards our destiny.  Chiron right now is therefore opposite the South Node, where it is challenging and opening old wounds from the past that are keeping us from moving forwards towards our soul’s true purpose.

This conjunction takes place in Aquarius, the sign of the collective and the urge for change, social justice, and living a life of authenticity and freedom.  One could argue that the Democratic party is ruled by these Aquarian principles of change and equality, so it is not surprising that the Convention, falling under this Chiron/Node conjunction, is opening old wounds of party issues.  The Clinton/Obama rivalry which many hoped was behind us is now heating up to a boiling point, and questions of rivalries between men and women, between those of different races, and between generations are rupturing as old wounds fester and come to the surface.  This is Chiron’s work: to bring the old wounds to the surface of our awareness so that they can be […]
