Barack Obama’s 2008 Solar Return

Barack Obama will celebrate his 47th birthday with a fund-raiser tonight in Boston, but where will he be this morning at 9:50 a.m.? That’s when the Sun returns to the exact place where it was when he was born, allowing astrologers to calculate his “solar return” or chart for this birthday year.

A little background for non-astrologers: The aspects between the planets remain the same, no matter where the chart is set. It’s the house cusps and the placement of the planets within the houses that change according to location.

I did a little digging and reports Obama is giving a speech in Lansing, Mich., this morning at 11 a.m. Of course, he could be in an airplane or a bus at 9:50, but I’m going to assume he’ll get to his destination a little ahead of time.

Thanks to the Daily Kos, we have the official proof that Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Aug. 4, 1961 at 7:24 p.m. Here’s his solar return, cast for Lansing.

I’m sorry to see that this chart has Moon/Mars in Virgo on the Ascendant opposing Uranus in Pisces. What does this mean? That Obama and the women (Moon) in his life are going to be subject to attacks or accidents (Mars/Uranus). This doesn’t mean that they will necessarily be physical attacks, but they will be attacks nonetheless.

Here’s what Reinhold Ebertin has to say about Moon/Mars equals Uranus in The Combination of Stellar Influences: “Quick irritability…a sudden experience in a woman’s life.”

But here’s some good news for Obama supporters: Ebertin says Moon/Mars on the Ascendant is “the taking over of leadership.”

Other highlights of Obama’s 2008 solar return:

Pluto in Sagittarius trine Venus in Leo. Issues about parentage could be coming out. I don’t think Obama has a love child, but we could see some interesting allegations about love and sex. I’ve learned since first writing this that the tabloid The Globe is peddling an Obama love child story this week. Strange days, indeed!

Mars conjunct Moon in Virgo. Possible disagreements with his wife Michelle. Perhaps she’s accusing him of selling out or going too mainstream. Big problems involving health care if he is elected President.

Sun conjunct Mercury in Leo on the Nodes. Obama’s connecting with the public in a big way.

  1. Forewarned is forearmed, I say. I will look at Helen Thomas’ chart shortly. Your wish is my command! Also, I’ve updated post so maybe my rewrite is more positive than the one you read. I started out doing the chart in Boston, but then moved to Lansing when I got more information.
    Moon/Mars equals Uranus could also be Michelle suddenly pregnant. But in terms of attacks on their characters, we ain’t seen nothing yet. And you didn’t need me to tell you that. This is the calm before the storm. Thanks, as always, for taking the time to read and write.

  2. Nina — Thanks for writing. I think that is a good idea and I will check that out. There are a lot of people who believe where you live MOST of the time is the most important thing in the solar return. I tend to believe that where you are when the solar return happens is the best place to cast the chart. However, it’s always good to consider other points of view, especially in astrology! – Monica

  3. Moon/Mars = Uranus also has to do with outlook and consciousness and a rebellious populace. Maybe with Mars/Uranus conjunct the Ascendant it translates into a changing view of the candidate especially since it opposes Uranus in the 7th. Don’t forget, he still hasn’t chosesn a running mate and he’s just beginning to outline his policies. Could it be that Hillary backers really abandon support for Obama? Or that he chooses Hilary as a running mate after all? Or, even more unexpectedly, chooses another woman candidate?
    Or maybe the goomah is revealed and it turns out to be Omarosa.
    I’m exhausted.

  4. Wherever Obama is, its written in the stars that he needs to win. We need a leader who is inspiring and visionary. Obama is one. Please vote for Obama, visit WHYOBAMA08.ORG!!!

  5. Michelle has to be pregnant by election day. This would be one more piece of “evidence” that Obama is the return of the king: JFK. Jackie was also pregnant during the election. It’s in the script.

  6. I think Chris has a good point. To use the parlance of American Idol, Obama may have “peaked too early.” The Moon/Mars could be an about-face on the part of the populace, which has been swooning over him till now. We’ll have to wait and see.

  12. Denise — Wow! You are good. Thousands of people have read this post and you’re the first to catch this mistake. Thanks so much for pointing it out. I’ve corrected it in the text. — Monica
