As I mentioned last week, with Mercury going retrograde on Election Day - there can be any number of tricks going on - voting machines breaking down, funny "contracts" being made, deceptions galore. Remember the last time and only other time Mercury turned retro on Election Day - 2000? Need I say more?
That said there are several good things in President Obama's chart on that day. On this triwheel of his birth chart, progressed chart and then transit chart of the day, I am first drawn to progressed Venus conjuncting his Black Moon Lilith in the 7th house - the house of close contacts. Venus, of course, is the ultimate woman, Lilith is the ultimate "bad girl." She is the rebel who said I do it my way not his way. Those two combined in the fiery sign of Leo leads me to think alot of peeved women are going to come together and give the President a boost on that day!
However, this is squaring a very strong Mars in the 10th - the house of career and public. Now Mars (conjunct Juno) in the 10th is a good placement for the President - but when it squares his progressed Venus it makes me think that there will be a male -female battle that the women are going to have to win.
