Presidential Astrology at HuffPo

I’m going to have put Regina at Gastriques on the payroll here at Astrology Mundo. She was the one who tipped me off to the John McCain Mother’s Day commercial with an 11 a.m. birth time for the candidate and to the post at the Daily Kos with an official birth certificate for Barack Obama.

Here’s Regina’s scoop of the day: The Huffington Post has jumped on the Presidential astrology bandwagon with this column. You read that right, folks: a column dedicated to the candidates based on astrology.

Just the other night before our maiden radio show, my astro-pal Pamela Cucinell from Astro Chatter was predicting that astrology was getting ready to go mainstream. Maybe she’s right.

What’s great about the HuffPo column by astrologer Philip Sedgwick is that it’s funny, it’s smart, it’s accurate, and it’s accessible — all of which are musts for a mainstream astrology column. Kudos to you, Philip!

But back to Regina: How can I ever pay her back for all her scoops? The only way I know how — by clicking on the Google Ads on her Web site. Give it a try. You don’t have to buy anything. All you have to do is click and the money goes into her account at the Googleplex.

I am tempted to go the extra step and buy the Campaign Cola on offer today at Gastriques. I’m not going to link to it here. Check it out yourself. It’s pretty funny. I just hope that the soda is made with sugar, not high-fructose corn syrup, or Regina might boot the ad from her site.

Darn, I should have copied the link for Campaign Cola. Gastriques has been overtaken by a mother lode of kosher food ads in response to one of Regina’s posts. Well, I can always Google Campaign Cola. Where would we be without Google?

Daily Kos Publishes Obama Birth Certificate with 7:24 p.m. Time

Thanks to commenter Cynthia and e-mailer Regina at Gastriques for bringing to my attention the publication of Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Both provided links to an image of the certificate that was first published by the Daily Kos. It shows a birth time of 7:24 p.m. on Aug. 4, 1961 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Here’s the link.

Here’s the chart, courtesy of Astrodienst, with the official time, and transits for Jan. 20, 2009, Inauguration Day.

This is slightly different from the 7:11 p.m. time that was announced by astrologer Joni Patry in Denver last month at the United Astrologers Conference, but not by much. Nancy, are you listening? Nancy’s Blog has been all over the new Obama birth time. Until the Denver conference, it was thought the Democratic Presidential hopeful was born around 1 p.m.

Patry has an interesting post over at Galactic Center about the response when she revealed the 7:11 time in Dallas.

The 7:11 p.m. chart produced an Ascendant of 14 degrees Aquarius, as opposed to 18 degrees for this one. This latest chart is being parsed by astrologers over the world as I write this, so I’m a little intimidated to weigh in.

Here’s my two cents, though: Obama’s stellium of Uranus, Pluto, and North Node in Leo falls in the seventh house of partnerships and alliances. Interesting that with the electrical Uranus, intense Pluto, and the public-oriented Node that Obama’s friends and foes alike have mobilized the Internet to an extent never seen before in a Presidential campaign.

Speaking of the Net, Cynthia, you rock! I haven’t been in this blogging game too long, and sometimes I lose faith in myself. What am I doing here? Then you get a comment like this, and it’s all worthwhile. What are we doing here? We’re trying to find and spread the truth!

If the blogosphere can shake loose Obama’s birth certificate and Cindy McCain’s 2006 tax return, how about a verified date of birth for Cindy (see my post, “Will the Real Cindy McCain Stand Up?”) and a military birth certificate for McCain?
