It is intriguing that both George W. Bush, Obama’s Oval Office predecessor should he win the November election, and John McCain, his chief competitor for that office, also possess Black Hole Suns, Bush’s in exact square, and McCain’s in exact conjunction. Between them, these three men exemplify the differences in Black Hole Sun interactions by hard aspect.

With the square, Bush thrives on conflict, bringing crisis, strife and negative energy to whatever he touches, but remaining largely unchanged himself, rooted in a reality which does not reflect the world the rest of us inhabit. He is constantly in conflict with objective reality, seeking to remake it to suit his own subjective one. With the conjunction, McCain is susceptible to dramatic and transformative life experience, a captive of his own nature, but able to readily conceal that nature and maintain a false image for others. With the opposition aspect, Obama is both freer to express himself or make his own way, and yet more at the mercies of the vagaries of fate, as represented by those “others” which the opposition describes. Where Bush is a magnet for failure, devastating loss and waste, and McCain tenaciously projects an image totally at variance with his record, Obama is a blank slate which allows others to write their hopes and fears upon him. As such, it is his associations with friends and the assertions of enemies which define him for others, more than any image he himself constructs.

With the Sun also conjoined a Maser, Obama has an electric, charismatic personality, able to excite and enthuse others. His energy is infectious, but he may also be susceptible to eventual overload or breakdown. Masers provide high-level energy, but it is of a nervous, febrile, chaotic kind, and it can also debilitate, causing periods of lassitude and collapse. Obama’s uneven performance on the stump in the last third of the campaign may reflect this energetic imbalance (or it could be a very human reaction to the enormous demands of this campaign without end). There is further a potential for controversy, disruption, and even violence with this placement, originating from or directed toward the native [see my article on “Masers and Assassination,” in the May 2008 Daykeeper].

Obama’s rock-star persona, the avid excitement with which he is greeted by huge crowds, and the enthusiasm he generates are all examples of the positive manifestations of his Sun/Maser conjunction. Controversial associations with former pastor Jeremiah Wright, campaign investor Tony Rezko, and former ‘60s radical William Ayres are illustrative of its more negative, disruptive effects.
