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.

I find it interesting that people have such a hard time believing that the document Pres. Obama has provided isn't an official document. My son was born 2002, in Hawaii (as are hundreds of other babies each year) and the official document I received from the state has in big bold letters at the top "Certification of Live Birth"; it also has State of Hawaii and Department of Health at the top with the state seal in between them, a raised seal at the bottom where it was signed by the State Registrar, and the date it was signed by the registrar. Anyone born in Hawaii can prove this and probably the state of Hawaii could do the same by showing the nation a blank copy of the certificate they send out to parents for their newborns.

McCain was born in Panama...yet no one had anything to say about that. I can't wait for the day someone who was born to parents in the United States military and was stationed overseas at the time of their birth runs for the office of President--will it be a problem then? What about the ones who were born in a foreign hospital because there wasn't a military facility available (and yes, there are some bases where the families have to use the civilian ones in the host nation)--are they now banned from running for office because of the faciitliy they were born in, even when the parents are United States citizens? I sure hope not!

And in case anyone is wondering, I'm neither a supporter nor hater of our current president, but I do respect the office and the title he holds. I'm neither a Democrat nor Republican--I vote for whoever I believe to be the best candidate for the office.

Suppose he was born in Kenya, raised in Indonesia...as HE SAID AND APPROVED in a transcript written to advertise his book? "Dreams From My Father"??? I BEG TO DISAGREE... He was NEVER VETTED.... as other Presidents have been... as he has George Soros..."Media Matters", who OWNS the LIBERAL MEDIA...IN HIS POCKET! Geo. Soros is a self admitted Communist... the richest man in the world... who has destroyed other countries by doing exactly what they are doing to America, dividing us, ripping us off of all our money by funneling it to Big Labor and false investments, and billions to other countries...read up on him... and I'd suggest you read up on the Roosevelt years, the Peanut farmer, Carter's President years, and the Lyndon Johnson years....see how they just about destroyed the country with their communist, socialist agenda's...just like the O's are doing! Good God, Americans..you really need to get an education besides for falling for someone's charisma, looks and BS!!!

Hatred makes us blind to truth. The truth is, anyone person running for President of the USA life is fully investigated with a fine tooth comb. Proof of President Obama's rights was already established earlier in his political career. Anyone that disputes this is showing their ignorance, jealously and hatred!
