A quick look to Obama inauguration chart:
Venus is the ruler of the Ascendant and the almuten of the chart – at least according Solar Fire, I’m too lazy to calculate it by hand. It is in a very good position by essential and accidental dignity: in her exaltation and triplicity. It is visible and vespertine – which is the strongest and benefic position for inner planets- in the house of Bonus Daemon and accomplishments.
She rules the Part of Fortune and she is with her in a tight conjunction.
Mercury, ruler of the second house of money and finance is at MC, cazimi – in the heart of the Sun, in Aquarius where it is the ruler of the Air triplicity by night.
Sarapione of Alexandria writes about Cazimi:
“Planets in synod are meaningful because of their presence with the Sun, even if they release their light later in time, if they are in active places, especially the star of Mercury rejoices when it is in synod and so it’s effective.”
Jupiter – the other participating ruler of the triplicity- is with them.
“Nevertheless – Sarapione goes on- even when combust, planets rejoice in their thrones, benefics spread their gifts, malefics turn their nature to the good.”
At MC Altair is culminating , the brilliant of Aquila, Jupiter-Mars nature.
The anonymous author of 379 AD says:
Therefore, if one of these stars rises at the horoscope or it comes up at the moment of delivery or culminates, it makes people who are born with a disposition of this kind become illustrious generals that subdue regions and cities and peoples, it makes them people who govern, who are inclined to action and act quickly, people who are not submissive and do not accept to be subdued, people who speak frankly, who have a taste for struggle and take pleasure in fighting. They also bring their plans to an end, they are efficient, virile, victorious, they harm their enemies, they are opulent and possibly immensely rich, they are brave and high-souled, they are also ambitious and usually they do not die well.
And this gossip around death is not exactly new….
Saturn is the ruler of MC. It is in its hairesis – day planet in a day chart-, retrograde but in its own terms in the fifth house.
And Saturn is the ruler of Obama own Ascendant.
Cardano writes (Aphorism 179.II, from Giuseppe Bezza complete translation, Xenia 1998 ):
“The king has a great power if the ruler of MC or of the place of the Sun is powerful in the chart of the kingdom or of the king.”
And with this, we will arrive to enemies. Mars rules the seventh house. And the infamous void of course Moon is there. This Moon – I should admit is obscure for me- worse, makes me think problems, especially because she is in an angle of sky with several wicked stars, with the same Martian nature too.
Mars is strong in its exaltation, in the ninth house, abroad and religion. We already saw this one month ago without waiting for the inauguration when Israel attacked Palestinians. It’s very difficult for a President to deal with something like that. Some American Presidents invented wars and problems, but there are already enough. In this Obama was unlucky, he should face the problem of the Middle East even before starting his term.
Saturn is trining this Mars (and MC) from Virgo, Mars receives it in Capricorn. In every case, Saturn is trining it with right trine, he is predominating on Mars – moreover Mars is against his hairesis being a night planet, this Mars could be very wicked and nasty.
Obama has the possibility to really change things, still he will have problems and problems.
In every case, hasta la vista Mr.Bush!
Writing a post in Skyscript forum, I noticed that rectifing a little the chart with images of stars rising with the Ascendant, for the 16th degree of Taurus (12:05 PM) we have from Book of Paranatellonta (Vat. Reg. 1283) – the Spanish pattern for Astrolabium Planum : A man sitting on a donkey arises with the 16th degree. Who is born in this degree will be a knight ready to forgive and doing good for people.
It sounds ok, especially because Donkey is the animal signifying Democrats.
And Yuzuru was right – thanks to his note- at least Moon is not Void of Course.
