Barack Obama will turn 49 years old on August 4th. Sorry - I am going to do a little political rant - so if you aren't into politics skip this paragraph. Yes, to all who say he is aloof he does have the lion energy of Leo the King at his core. Deal with it. I am sorry, I like the man and I think he has passed a heck of a lot of legislation while trying to clear 8 years of errors in a very short time period. Is he perfect? Has he done everything 100 percent correctly? No. He does have the problem of being human. However, he is smart and doing his best to get us back on the right track.
My diatribe over let's look at his chart on the eve of his birthday. What I constructed above is a tri wheel. In the middle is his birth chart - his natal chart. The center is his progressed chart. A progressed chart is simply a marking of how the planets have moved in his chart only since his birth. A progressed chart is unique to each person. The largest outer chart marks the transits of the planets on any particular day - these are the same for everyone living in Washington, DC in this case.
Anyone can get a tri-wheel of progression at any time to see what influence the planets are having on your life at that moment.
The first thing that I notice is that his progressed Mercury and Mars are in Libra in the 12th house. Typically the 12th house is one of withdrawal. Planets in the 12th house are often muted and turned inward. Ironically, I was born with Mars and Mercury in the 12th house in Libra - writing is easier than speaking for me and it has taken me years to express my Mars anger and drive overtly and not look for vengeance and to just seethe inwardly.
With his progressed Mercury and Mars in the 12th and in the co-dependent sign of Libra it is no wonder that his orations have been missing the mark of late. It also accounts for his extreme concern with the "other side". Libra is all about caring way too much about helping other - being co-dependent. This progression will remain in place until early next year...so those of like who like his speeches and want a little more fire will be disappointed for a bit longer.
Even Pallas Athena - the asteroid of androgynous female healing power is transiting his 12th house. So he has a lot of power bottled up in 12.
I am glad he is going on "The View" tomorrow - because transiting Mercury (unlike progressed) is in the 10th house - the house of social status and in conjunction with his natal Uranus and natal Lilith. Lilith is the asteroid who shows where we want to defy society. So he should have a good time with some of the wackier members of the panel.
So wait until next year you fire and brimstone Progressives - our Barack will be back.
