It's Official: Obama is a Leo!

The Astrology of President Barack Obama

Happy Birthday, Mr. President! It's time to celebrate the Astrology of President Barack Obama, who was born on August 4, 1961, at 7:24 p.m. in Honolulu, Hawaii. This makes Obama a level-headed Leo, but let's take a look at the rest of his birth chart for a complete cosmic profile of President Obama. 

Skeptics and conspiracy theorists -- including Donald Trump -- have been making a fuss over the issue of Obama's birth certificate for months, debating whether or not he was born in the United States. Now that we have our official answer, we're happy to dig into the astrological influences that shape Obama as a leader.

Overall, Obama's birth chart suggests that his presidential term or terms will show him to be a transformative leader as the Chief Executive. Uranus, the planet of surprises and breakthroughs, is placed at a highly significant point in his horoscope. It was conjunct the Moon’s North Node in Leo, indicating Obama's karmic path as a change agent. But as his track record has shown, he’s a cautiously bold builder who is likely to be a competent innovator, not a reckless revolutionary.

Obama has the charisma and personal power of his Leo Sun, but the sometimes autocratic nature of this sign is tempered by his Moon, symbol of emotions, in adaptable Gemini. He is not a rigid man with fixed ideas; he is a flexible pragmatist whose plans are carefully measured to include the input of others.

The Moon in airy Gemini is often cool and sometimes appears aloof, yet this position also reflects his dislike for personal drama among his staff. Some individuals with Leo and Gemini are all show and no go, but that’s not the case with Obama. You don't make it through Harvard Law School with sloppy work habits or a superficial mind, and you don't run a country without a strong sense of strategy and an eye for detail.

Barack was born with Mars, the action planet, in efficient Virgo, where results count more than appearances. His Mars is strengthened by a harmonious 120-degree trine to responsible Saturn in well organized Capricorn, reinforcing his image as a highly competent manager.

Aquarius rising indicates that he is, in some ways, a man who may be free of narrow prejudices, dedicated to innovation and individual rights. We’re unlikely to see fear-based repression of speech under Obama's watch.

Still, his earthy efficiency and charismatic cool is nicely balanced with the emotional depth of his Venus in Cancer. The affection this planet of love inspires in his family is not an act. It is an honest expression of a desire to nurture and protect, as demonstrated by his work as a community organizer in Chicago’s poorest neighborhoods.

PS I'm a Pisces alright, but my "rising sign" is Scorpio ! A very fixed sign. My now deceased wife and mother of my children informed me of this. And she brought forth my first of three daughters with her on Father's Day (Gemini June 18th, 1987) as specifically foretold by a ten yr old girl who was born on my own birthday,(March 6th, but she is two yrs younger. her in 1953, me in 1951) . She received a "word of Knowledge", concerning the birth of my Father's Day daughter in 1963 while JFK was our
living president. JFK was elected in 1961, the yr pres. Obama was born!

The number 61 is like a week of days in which six are for labor, and one set aside as the "Sabbath". A Mr Fowler gave one million $ to Gordon College in Boston, Ma. Then, a few yrs later, he gave another $60 million to the same school. That makes 61Million $ ! No wonder my brother took the maiden name of his beautiful wife into his own last name. she's a Fowler! A lot happened in 1961 ! How much influence do numbers have over us? Over politics? The bible forbids astrology, but it also says that the very reason why the stars and planets were created is "for times, and for seasons" . Genesis 1:14 KJV
Also let us remember that the wise men who knew where and when the Christ child was born were "astrologers" (and wise men!) . And they were NOT in conflict with the most high God, nor He with them!

For astrologers, (I'm not yet quite even a "Novis") As for the yr 1961, JFK was elected that yr, and home runs-per-season-record was made that year,which was tied and broken by Mark Maguire. but there's more-. Mark really screwed up things by taking the steroids, because he wold have broken the record anyway. But now he'll never know. But he hit his 61st home run on his fathers 61st birthday. And the record of 61 home runs in one season was made in 1961. "TheTerribleParrible" or "TheSengerFinn" 11/07/12 at 9:56 PM

I'm British & would have no real interest in American politics but for the "when America sneezes, the rest of the world catches a cold" syndrome.However,I find some of the comments from what I believe are rednecks about President Obama incredibly ignorant and biased. God help the rest of the world if these people gain power.

Very interesting...he is one of a kind. I never believed he wasn't born in this country. How would he be president if that were true? I think there are ways to spot fraudulent birth certificates. He sounds like a highly intelligent man.

In my work as a counseling astrologer, I tend to get right to the point.

Within the first 10 minutes of a session I usually uncover at least one deep short circuit that somehow blocks my client from moving forward in his or her personal development. continued »

As the Sun moves into Sagittarius on November 22, we'll enter the final month of fall and begin preparing for winter -- but first comes Thanksgiving.
