I’ve run a progressed composite chart with transits for Democratic Presidential nominee Barack Obama and his running mate Joe Biden for noon on Inauguration Day, and one good progressed composite deserves another.
Here’s the same setup for Republican nominee John McCain and his vice-presidential pick Sarah Palin.
What’s interesting about both these progressed composites (assuming the times are right) is that the progressed Moon changed signs near the time the Presidential candidate announced his running mate. With Obama/Biden, the progressed Moon went into Sagittarius, the same sign as the progressed Sun.
With the McCain and Palin progressed composite chart, the Moon is at 5 degrees of Libra, a good placement for partnership. On the day the Palin was announced (Aug. 29, McCain’s birthday), the progressed Moon was one degree past a conjunction with the North Node at 0 degrees of Libra.
The chart, which uses an unconfirmed 4:40 p.m. birth time for Palin and an 6:25 birth time for McCain, has some pretty positive aspects on Inauguration Day.
Transiting Juno, Sun, and Jupiter are quite close to the McCain/Palin progressed composite Sun and Mercury, for starters. Suffice it to say this chart only works if Palin stays in the race. She’s riding high now, but Neptune is on her Aquarius stellium so anything could happen.
