of Asia (China, Japan, Pacific-rim-countries), Australia, Hawaii and Pacific

and Moon will be within 4 degrees from Ketu and Rahu respectively, and therefore
will last for a long time (4 hours). The eclipse will occur with the Southern or descending node

President Obama and his administration:
President Obama's operating
planet Neptune has been opposing his natal Rahu since
mid-July and will continue opposing his natal Rahu till January 20,
2012. With Neptune in the seventh house of his
progressive chart, it has been a very challenging and deceptive environment around
him, making it difficult for him to deal with the current
pressing issues: the economy, international dealings, and
deficit. The Neptune in the fourth
house of his ninefold progressive chart will force him to deal
with the domestic issues, such as homeland security and immigration.
Furthermore, the ninefold Saturn will conjunct the ninefold
Neptune in the fourth house making it extremely challenging for
him to deal with domestic political issues during the second
half of December. However,

chart and in the 11th house of his ninefold progressive chart,
