                                                         Battle of the Budget

Feb. 26, 2009
Starlight News

Still riding high from his superb Not-Quite-State-of-the-Union performance a few nights ago, President Obama today put forth his budget plans. Needless to say, nothing galvanizes the Republicans more than Democrats wanting to spend money. Rumblings of the coming battle have already begun. In addition, Obama is in the process of putting forth his exit strategy from Iraq, an area that may well cause some sniper fire from the Left over the size of the residual force remaining, as well as from the Generals who want to remain for an untold number of years.

The astrological read on today’s political reality is very clear. Jupiter, the planet of optimism, success, and expansiveness is opposed to Obama’s Sun (12Leo33) from February 23 through February 28, accounting for his highly successful speech and the huge, optimistic reach of his plans. At the same time, Uranus is opposing his Mars (22Virgo35) during most of February through mid-March 2009, pushing him to creative, unexpected solutions to problems, putting him into a whirlwind of non-stop activity, and agitating fierce opposition. The battles are likely to intensify through mid-March with some unexpected attacks that may cause sudden changes in direction to the process.

Unfortunately, just as Jupiter’s benevolent influence begins to wane, Saturn moves to quincunx Obama’s Ascendant (18Aquarius03) from February 28 through March 12, followed by Saturn semisquare Obama’s Mercury (2Leo18) from March 10 to March 22. Here we see reality and obstructionism (Saturn) restraining the audacity and magnitude of Obama’s plans. Given that the Uranus transit opposite his natal Mars will be exact in mid-March, it seems likely that he will be increasingly aggressive in pushing his agenda while peeved, frustrated, and impatient with the likely obstructionism.

There is also a concern that these two Saturn transits may negatively impact Obama’s health during the first three weeks of March. This is not likely to be serious so much as an annoyance that slows him down somewhat. Following the Saturn doldrums, expansive Jupiter will briefly cross his Ascendant from March 22 through March 26, suggesting some very upbeat energy and successes towards the end of a difficult month.

It is also quite likely that despite the battles raging over the details of the various proposals winding their way through the halls of Congress, Obama’s popularity will be extremely high with the public from February 27 through March 9, 2009. In the composite chart drawn by using the midpoints between the positions in Obama’s chart and the US chart, there is an exact Moon/Neptune opposition (15Aries/15Libra). This describes the tendency of the people (Moon) to idealize (Neptune) Obama. Venus will make a station exactly on this composite Moon position (15Aries17) during these 11 days (2/27 to 3/9), intensifying the public’s very warm feelings and trust for their new president.

Obama’s extraordinary popularity and continued honeymoon with the public are indicated by the continuing solar arc progressed Venus conjunction to his Ascendant (18Aquarius03) that will be exact in June 2009 and his progressed Venus conjunction to progressed Uranus (28Leo10) exact in August 2009. These will be followed by a Jupiter station on his Ascendant from September 8 through November 5, again indicating a time of success, optimistic outreach, and possibly some significant and promising travel. Thus, President Obama’s exceptional approval ratings are likely to last until about November 5, 2009. As mentioned in previous posts, it is after this date, that a new wave of serious difficulties will begin, and Obama is likely to lose some of his luster, probably until the end of 2010 or the beginning of 2011.
