The ascending degree of the first oath-taking, 15 Taurus, does not figure significantly in the US chart or that of Obama, but it produces an interesting image as far as the Sabian Symbols go: An old man is attempting with a degree of success unsuspected by him to reveal the mysteries to a motley group. Perhaps this image reinforces the idea that Obama in the pursuit of restoring 'old truths' and real values will succeed, and that the stated intention of this administration to make government more transparent will turn out to be its hallmark. (And who might that motley group be? Congress?) On the other hand, if we look at the Sabian symbol for the second oath-taking ceremony - 1 Virgo: A man's head is revealed; it is a portrait in which the artist has sought to idealize the best of human character - this provides hope that we do indeed have the best of men in President Obama.

The horoscope of the second swearing-in is far less powerful, however. We lose the brilliant triple conjunction on the Mid-heaven and find it tucked away in the service-oriented sixth house. The sole angular planet becomes Neptune - on the Ascendant-Descendant axis - which does reflect the promotion of ideals and God calling on the American people to shape an uncertain destiny but it also produces an aura of loss and lack of direction. There is a gain in the fact that the moon is no longer void-of-course and placed in optimistic, generous-spirited Sagittarius but at 15 of the sign it forms the apex of a 'T-square' involving Venus and the Uranus-Saturn opposition, thus the winter of hardship becomes ever more icy and the likelihood of crises of one description or another ever more imminent and recurrent.

Nevertheless, Obama is the Great White Hope (no pun intended) for the American people. He has taken office at a time when the country is at its lowest ebb, a time when the US has fallen so low under the gaze of the rest of the world that it needs the equivalent of a crash-cart and a team of first rate physicians to resurrect it.

And I have hope in Obama, even though these charts provide little foundation for it.

Maybe in time to come I will see my reservations reduced to mere dots on a page and Obama will march victoriously through two terms of office. I have to believe in the triumph of hope over horoscopes.
