The birth data for the two main contenders is below.
DOB Dec 11, 1943 07:10 PM MWT
Fitzsimmons Military Hospital
39 N 44' 33"
104 W 50' 12"
DOB July 6, 1946 7:26 AM EDT
Yale, New Haven Medical Center 20 York Road
New Haven, Ct.
41 N 18' 11"
72 W 56' 07"
Precise location data is used in my calculations
This results in the following:
Physical Birth Time ASC = 17 Sagittarius 44' 55" [Chart]
Spiritual Birth Time ASC = 02 Sagittarius 42' 49" [Chart]
Physical Birth Time ASC = 7 Leo 0' [Chart]
Spiritual Birth Time ASC = 26 Cancer 18' 26" [Chart]
Since I deal in accuracy's of 4 minutes of arc or less for secondary progressions it is necessary to have a precise location for the birth. That is why I have included the hospital.
The verifying process has previously been done with both charts. A point of interest is the fact that at the exact time the war in Iraq started Mars by transit was exactly conjunct, to the second of arc, President Bush's natal MC. This is typical of the results found when using Spiritiual Birth Times.
I always use Placidus houses.
Certainly as auspicious an occasion as being elected to the Presidency of the United States will require an activation of the tenth house.
This year the election is on the 2nd of November 2004.
What is happening in Kerry's chart in the time frame of this year's election? Let's see.
1. On Nov 2nd, 2004 progressed Moon sextiles natal Venus and progressed Moon forms a 105° aspect to natal Sun. The interpretation of a Moon-Venus sextile would be a good thing in anyones' life. However this does not involve a planet in or ruling the tenth house. The 105° aspect between the Moon and the Sun indicates a time of developmental crisis after the waning square and on the way to the waning trine.
2. On Oct 8th, 2004 progressed Mercury in the third house makes a waning 195°(165°) aspect to natal Uranus in the seventh house. Could this indicate the release of a surprising piece of information? The aspect will be within 4' orb on election day.
3. On Oct 19th, 2004 progressed Mercury makes a waxing quincunx 150° to natal Jupiter in the ninth house. From the third to the ninth again indicates communication, information and perhaps legal matters. The aspect will be within 4' orb on election day.
4. On Nov 23th, 2004 progressed MC in the 12th house makes a waning 195°(165°) aspect to natal Uranus in the seventh house. While this aspect becomes exact after election day it's influence is in effect before the event.
What can be surmised from the above data? There is a lot of activity in areas concerning the gathering, processing and distribution of ideas and philosophies. This could very well reveal new information about Sen. Kerry late in the race. Mercury, ruler of the tenth and the progressed MC are both being activated near election day. The question is: "Are the influences good?" Certainly the Moon-Venus sextile will bring a harmony to the feelings of the day for Sen. Kerry. However the influence of the remaining aspects do not look encouraging. In the Dec-Jan 97/98 issue of the Mountain Astrologer, Noel Tyl, wrote an interesting article about minor aspects. That is 15°, 75°, 105°, 165°, 195°, 255°, 285° and 345°. The 15°, 75° and 105° aspect were not mentioned yet they are of the 24th harmonic family. The quincunx, 150°, is also part of this harmonic and often no longer considered minor. These aspects deal largely with adjustment and the disruption or upheaval of one's life when working to intigrate the symbols involved.
What is happening in Bush's chart in the time frame of this year's election? Let's see.
1. On Oct 24, 2004 progressed Sun quincunx natal MC. With the progressed Sun just moving into the third house a few days earlier there is as in Kerry's chart an information theme. The aspect will be within 4' orb on election day.
2. On Feb 24, 2005 progressed Mars, angular in the natal fourth house and ruler of the natal tenth house is parallel natal Jupiter in south declination. Normally a south declination parallel would not indicate a move into public life. Since President Bush is the incumbant in this election how will this aspect play out. Being in the fourth house it may well see an increase in time at home, home of course being the White House. The aspect will be within 4' orb on election day.
3. Interestingly enough there is also progressed Jupiter to natal Mars contra-parallel. The natal Mars is in north declination. This aspect is one of long duration and is ever so slowly moving away from being exact. It's influence will be prevalent for many years. The aspect will be within 4' orb on election day.
4. There is also a parallel, in northern declination, between progressed north Node and natal Sun. This is another aspect of long duration and is ever so slowly moving towards being exact. A Node-Sun contact certainly means fulfillment of one's life purpose. The aspect will be within 4' orb on election day.
5. Progressed Uranus is moving toward an exact parallel to progressed Pluto, in the angular first house. And perhaps Pluto being a co-ruler with Mars of Scorpio should also be considered linked to Aries. Once again this is another aspect of long duration and is ever so slowly moving towards being exact. Natal Uranus is closely conjunct the natal north Node in the 11th house. Will this aspect place George Bush in a position to exercise a powerful influence for change at the birth of the Aquarian age?
What do you think? To be in the running as President of the USA requires a very strong person and a very strong chart to go with that person. Interestingly enough neither candidates' chart has an interceptiont. In the 1996 election my teacher predicted that Clinton would win based on one fact. Clinton's progressed MC was in northern declination, while Dole's progressed MC was in southern declination, that was the sole deciding factor between two strong charts. This time only President Bush has his MC in northern declination. Without a doubt the parallel of North Node and Sun in northern declination and at such a high degree is a sure sign that Bush is entering a time of manifesting his destiny or life purpose. This should demonstrate to those of you who do not use declinations and/or do not even know what they are, that you are missing about 50% of the information that can be found in a natal chart. By progression, more aspects form in declination than in longitude and they are very meaningful. While both charts show activation of the MC, Bush's double Jupiter-Mars(ruler natal MC) contacts are more supportive.
