Barack Obama Horoscope

Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961 at 7:24 pm in Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S.A. His Sun positioned at 12 degrees Leo places him in Leo Decan 2. His Moon is Gemini Decan 1, and Ascendant is Aquarius Decan 2.

Sun and the Moon are the two equally most influntial bodies in astrology. So aspects to the luminaries are the best place to start when interpreting a chart. The strongest Moon aspect in Moon sextile Mercury, as the orb is only one degree, and Mercury is a personal planet, affecting how we think and communicate. The strongest Sun aspect in Sun square Neptune, with an orb of four degrees. Even though a square aspect is more powerful than a sextile aspect, the Moon in Baracks chart is the power player. His Moon receives many more aspects than the Sun. The Moon is the focal point of a T-Square aspect pattern to Pluto opposite Chiron. The Moon is also pnly five degrees from the Nadir, thus affecting his public profile with Moon opposite Midheaven.

According to Robert Pelletier (Planets in Aspect), Moon sextile Mercury is ‘The Charming Speaker’:

Both memory and comprehension are likely to be above average, thus creating a well-stocked intellect. What can emerge as a motivation is a need to be socially useful by contributing to your community…You can be an effective communicator, conveying ideas and presenting them in a clear and persuasive manner, being articulate and literate, entertaining and interesting.

  1. Molly – I meant no offense to Jamie – I just think this bill is not quite as grand as it’s made out to be, which is why I said the bill does very little to help the underprivileged.

    To be fair, this bill does expand Medicaid, likewise it provides more funding for community clinics, so in this respect (at least) it would be benefit a segment of the underprivileged population. I believe the bill also includes passage of the “Elder Justice Act” (a cause very close to my heart), which increases funding for senior advocacy and protection.

    And while I won’t dispute the fact that there are several other good things about this bill — under this plan, those with the most resources (money) will still have access to the best (most comprehensive) private health care plans, while those with the least resources (the poor and/or unemployed) will have access to the least comprehensive private health care plans (higher co-pays and deductibles with less coverage) – this could easily result in a greater financial burden being placed on those less fortunate and will likely deter many of them from seeking appropriate medical treatment.

    There are no guarantees of equal treatment under this bill, and insurance companies can continue to sell a fundamentally defective product at exorbitant rates. I’m very familiar with how the insurance industry operates, and I speak from experience when I say that trying to get the benefits one is entitled to can sometimes be a daunting task, especially for those less informed or able to articulate their concerns Many people are unaware that the insurance industry routinely pays hundreds of millions of dollars in fines each year for some of their more egregious practices – considering the opportunistic nature of the insurance industry, the underprivileged would seem likely targets of such practices. getclaimhelp.com/public-adjuster/10-worst-insurance-companies-deny-claims-raise-premiums.html#unitedhealth

    Thanks Jamie, for giving us the opportunity to discuss a non-astrological subject. This blog has the ability to inform a great number of people, and while some of us may disagree regarding the merits of this bill, hopefully we can agree that knowledge is always a good thing.

    If you’re interested in an alternative viewpoint, this link will take you to Healthcare Now, where those more informed than I am explore the bill in greater detail. healthcare-now.org/category/news/

  2. i think it’s not so bad that rich people can pay for better care. what is important to me is that a basic level of care is available to everyone. in Australia, you can pay for health insurance and get top quality care in private hospitals, and high income earners are penalized if they don’t take out this insurance.

    everyone here has access to free health care though. i am on a single parents pension. we pay nothing to see my private doctor, all prescription medications are subsidised ($5 per script), we pay nothing to get treated at the public hospital. the waiting lists are long for elective surgery in the public system, and that is the advantage of having private cover.

    we have our own health summit coming up soon here, with plans to nationalize the entire health care system. the federal government wants to take control of the public hospital system, currently run by the state governments.

  3. Jamie – I’m not at all familiar with Australia’s health care system, but based on your description, it sounds pretty good.

    Maybe someday we Americans will have something similar in place – there are certainly plenty of hard-working people trying to accomplish this by supporting single-payer, improved Medicare for all, which seems to be our best shot at achieving universal health care.

  4. WOW! SOCIALISM IS GREAT!! UNTIL YOU FINALLY RUN OUT OF OTHER PEOPLE’S MONEY!!

  5. this is an interesting topic Karen. i just checked out the public debt of the USA: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_public_debt and it seems the problem really got out of hand during the last Republican term, funding the war on terror using other people’s money (mainly from China).

  6. There was a Sun, Saturn, Pluto t-square through from the crucial vote to the signing. Obama’s Venus, his ability to appeal to people, completed this very difficult configuration and made it more manageable and able to manifest. (4 in Cabbala number symbolism is a number of manifestation.)

  7. thanks for pointing this out Dharmaruci. these difficult configurations do make things happen, and Obama’s venus filled in the empty leg of the t-square. i think the same sort of thing can happen between two natal charts too, when a planet in one persons chart completes a configuration, like filling the empty leg of a t-square.

    I attended an extensive educational forum with a Rhodes scholar from Australia (health care system). It is not so hot. Lots of rationing. Long lines. Their technology is behind the times. Wait and learn.

  9. Hi, Jamie. Thanks for this very interesting analysis.

    One thing I noticed about the date of the signing is that Uranus was exacting crossing the point it will return to in retrograde motion, its stationary direct point, next December. I wonder whether this “progressive breakthrough” will hold?

    I think the time was right given Uranus in Pisces, but there may be a backlash when Uranus moves into Aries. We’ll see.

    I’d hardly say that public health care in Australia is behind the times. there are no lines for urgent cases, i’ve taken the kids to hospital a number of times and they have been treated straight away when it was urgent. if you go to a public hospital with a sore throat then you can wait hours, but then you can always go to the doctor for free. it is a fair system with excellent care and one of the best in the world.

    that is very interesting, it will be interesting to look at all the transits as this story develops. I’m sure Obama has more plans for changes. I get the feeling we has just happy to get this bill passed and work on the other issues one by one now the framework is set up.
