Well finally the Presidential election is over. Obama has won and many people I know are quite happy now. Some were upset when I wrote several weeks ago that I felt, according to an astrological formula I use, that Romney had a slight edge to win.
This formula is based on matching the candidates’ charts with upcoming planetary aspects and the USA natal chart. Important aspects that will also make aspect to the USA chart, like the Uranus/Pluto square from 2012-2015, would require in my view, strong connections with the chart of the president. This is obviously because it is unlikely that someone so prominent in the world would not be connected to aspects that will change the world. And this formula has always worked for me almost perfectly, for over 20 years. I knew Obama and McCain would be candidates and Obama would likely win long before either was a strong candidate.
But this time neither candidate was strongly connected to the Uranus/Pluto square, which is such a powerful symbol of transformation for our country, as it will make close aspect to the USA Sun during the next few years. So I looked for more minor aspects, and believed Romney had a slight advantage.
However, when Mercury went into its “storm period”, which is when it is slowing down before it goes retrograde, the tide turned. Mercury goes into its storm about a week or so before it goes retrograde, and perceptions begin to change already. In this case, Mercury went into its storm around the time the actual storm of Sandy blew into America. And a powerful Full Moon was happening at the same time.
Those aspects, connected to that storm, began to change perceptions. President Obama began to look especially presidential in handling the storm and Governor Christie of New Jersey and and Mayor Bloomberg of New York showed much appreciation of President Obama. When I wrote last week’s forecast I wrote how I felt that the winds had turned in favor of President Obama, who I believe may be a reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln, our president during the Civil War of 1861-1865. And I stated a new civil war is brewing in America now, largely with huge disagreements between values of the North and South , and perhaps we need Lincoln again.
But still I have been wondering why President Obama does not have any natal planets making major aspect to the Uranus/Pluto square. He does have Saturn in Scorpio making a square to his Sun, which is a very difficult aspect, which is close at the time of his inauguration, and exact in the autumn of 2013. And there are two eclipses at that time which are very close to planets in his natal chart, but not much of importance after 2013.
So then I started thinking how Lincoln was assassinated during his presidency. Then I looked at some coincidences. Lincoln began his presidency in 1861. Obama was born 100 years later in 1961. And John Kennedy, who was also assassinated, began his presidency in 1961, the year Obama was born and exactly 100 years from when Lincoln began his presidency. Kennedy and Lincoln were both very involved with civil rights for Black people, during times when that was of urgent importance in America. And of course most people know the other odd coincidences between Kennedy and Lincoln, like both had Vice Presidents named Johnson, one of whom was born in 1808 and the other in 1908; Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy and Kennedy’s secretary named Lincoln. Google it and you will find many more such connections between them.
So now there appears to be a connection between Lincoln, who freed the slaves; Kennedy who helped lead the Civil Rights movement; and Obama who is the product of those breakthroughs as the first African American President. It makes no difference if they are all the same soul, reincarnated, or not. They all indeed are very connected.
And why was President Obama not fully present at that first debate? Was his soul reluctant to meet his future destiny while winning the presidency? And why has this stoic man been crying so much just before and just after this election?
I am very concerned his fate is the same as Lincoln and Kennedy. And if so I believe this would happen next autumn or shortly before or after. Is this a part of the great transformational change for America coming our way? Is another Pisces Age martyrdom necessary to transform our country into an equal member of the Aquarian Age we are moving into? In future installments I will further analyze why I believe Obama may be the reincarnation of Lincoln, a man he admires and often quotes, and look deeper into his possible fate, and into whether we can change that potential fate with our co-creation with the Universe.
So now as I write this we are in a dark Moon phase, awaiting a most strong New Moon, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Scorpio. This will begin a lunar cycle that will include a Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius/Gemini on November 28 and a Mars’ triggering of the Uranus/Pluto square on November 27. Mercury will be retrograde most of that time.
And then the next Lunar cycle will begin with a Sagittarius New Moon on December 13, which happens on the same day as liberating Uranus changes directions. This free spirited beginning to that new lunar cycle will bring us through the Mayan Calendar ending on December 21, 2012.
The Solar Eclipse in Scorpio will be this coming Tuesday November 13 at 5:08 PM EST. It will be about strong new beginnings, and the emphasis will be about emotional releases, renewed intensity and passion, primal expressions, trusting one’s instincts, and revealing previously held emotions or secrets. Pandora’s box will begin to open and we will be dealing with issues that were previously kept under wraps.
It will be a good time to get involved in the mysteries, psychologically, spiritually, and otherwise. You will find your self going deeper inside your mind, heart, feelings, and psyche. You will find it more difficult holding back what you truly feel at the core of your being. It will be a time of powerful release of old emotional fecal matter, so you can embrace a renewed life. Scorpio takes us deep into the bowels of our soul, and brings up old matters that have been blocking our path. We then often have a Phoenix Rising type of rebirth that thrusts us forward in our life journey.
So the Eclipses will take you out of your usual balance and comfort zone, and make it easier to let go of the past and embrace the future. And because Mercury will still be retrograde, it is more likely that people, emotions, and issues from the past will return. This will help you to end phases of your life that are ending, and for some to come full circle before moving forward again.
In the greater world, issues of the economy and its weaknesses will come front and center into our awareness. Before the year is out we will be reminded of how vulnerable our economic system is, and how much in debt our country remains. We may be taken to an edge of economic danger as politicians argue how best to balance the budget and get our system in better shape. We will eventually need a deep transformation of our whole economic system.
Natural disasters are also likely to continue during the Eclipse Season, as Mother Nature is an important part of our Healing and Transformation journey.
The Middle East is quite a tinder box also, as the civil war in Syria continues, as tensions with Iran mount, as Libya remains in the spotlight of concerns about cover-up. Israel is in a much more precarious position since the Arab Spring has broken down previous walls of restraint and brought more power to Muslim organizations, as in Egypt. Israel may feel like a cornered animal and feel it needs to strike. If it ended its oppression of the Palestinian peoples, however, it would likely ease the hatred felt in the Arab world, but this is unlikely to happen.
Secrets revealed, and sexual issues are also very Scorpionic in nature, and the resigning by CIA director Patraeus because of an extramarital affair fits perfectly. Other such events are likely.
Everything will not be about disaster, however. Things are opening up from a very deep level of our collective consciousness. We are learning that we can connect in ways we never imagined. Souls all over the Earth and beyond our Earth are connected by a Unity of Soul and Mind. It is getting easier to remove the restraints and limitations, and to find the frequencies of communication and connection with other souls, alive and dead, worldly and otherworldly.
Secrets about Visitations from beings outside our “normal” world will be coming into the light soon. The connections between our dreams and other worlds will be more evident. We as a human race have made such leaps of progress on the material plane. It is now time to make progress on the other planes, spiritual planes, and consciousness planes of existence.
So this is becoming a wonder-full and challenging time to be alive, all at the same time. You ain’t seen nothin’ yet!
