Some thoughts on Obama's ACG in the USA.

Obama's Astro*Carto*Graphy map can only be fully understood with reference to his natal chart. His Moon line in Washington DC can only be understood when we see how difficult the Moon is in his Natal Chart.

In Chicago Obama is an orator, communicator and writer.

Obama during his acceptance speech. 4 November 2008“If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.”

Obama's greatest speech (to date) was his acceptance in Grant Park, Chicago on 4th November 2008.  On his ACG map, Jupiter in Aquarius is at the MC and Mercury at the IC – ideal for Obama for an historic, articulate and moving presentation watched by millions around the world.

Washington DC is emotionally fraught and not always healthy for Obama

However, in Washington DC, the energy is different.  Here, he has the Moon rising and the Sun slightly off the IC.  He will tend to react to new situations with clever words and quotable sound bites, but he needs time to grasp the fundamentals.  In Washington he is more prone to emotional crises and will have to assert himself to avoid getting swamped or being at the mercy forces beyond his control.  With both the Sun and Moon strong here, he will alternate between highly active periods of strong leadership and then lapse into a surprisingly passive and flexible role.  Relations with women, including Michelle and Hillary Clinton are liked to be fraught and changeable here. see natal chart

The Organic Garden versus Foodstuffs industry

Michelle Obama's organic garden is wonderfully symbolic of the Moon. Here Barack's wife is living out an important nurturing part of his chart. However, the challenge will be following through on this principle when it comes to legislation regulating organic farming and reining in the excesses of food companies like Monsanto. Pluto is about the big bucks and in this city money turns into power which can undermine home-spun ideals like an organic garden. We will see how this pans out!

Wish to treat adversaries as family despite deep division on fiscal policy

Obama AstroCartoGraphy in the USAAnother manifestation of the Moon is Obama's desire to embrace all party followers - almost as if they are all part of one big American family. He offered senior positions to leading Republicans and tried hard to get unity on his stimulus package. However, these overtures were roundly rebuffed. The problem as I see it is that while his rivals can be close to him emotionally and understand where he is coming from, the policies of many Republicans especially over fiscal policy are utterly different. While they want money to go to the few so that it will trickle down through low taxes, Obama wants to spread wealth evenly to the many with public funding in a Keynsian way.

Parallels with another legendary orator JFK

Obama's chart shares some key ingredients with President John F. Kennedy.  Obama's Mercury opposite Jupiter, Sextile Moon and Mercury trine MC echoes JFK's Mercury conjunct Jupiter, trine Moon and sextile MC.  Parallels between JFK and BOHBoth leaders were able to communicate with the public and inspire them into taking the risk of venturing into new ground [Mercury/Jupiter].  These skills resulted in the election of the first Catholic President and the first Black President.  Both Kennedy and Obama's charts are predominantly air (Obama 36%* and Kennedy 42%*) with ‘Air Rising' giving them a friendly and egalitarian approach.  Moreover, Obama's Moon falls on JFK's Sun in Gemini.  Both are recognised as legendary speakers, and charismatic leaders.  Both stood as Democrats from northern states and both were elected President while still in their 40s. 

Does Obama share the dangers inherent in Kennedy's chart?

The great concern has been whether Obama will follow Kennedy's tragic fate.  Certainly Obama's chart does not throw up the potential dangers shown in JFK's chart: Mars square Uranus, Saturn/Neptune at the MC and an unaspected Pluto.  However, if he commissioned me to work for him, (and he would not be the first President to consult an astrologer) I would advise him to avoid his Chiron and Pluto Astro*Carto*Graphy lines at critical transits.  Countries like Egypt and East Europe especially Greece could be difficult as well as San Francisco in the USA.
