Based on the
following birth information obtained from Astrodata Bank,
President George W.
Birth Date: July
Birth Time: 7:26
Birth Place: New
Haven, CT (41.3 N; 72.93 W)
Senator John Kerry
December 11, 1943
Birth Time: 8:03
Denver, Colorado (39.74 N; 105 W)
the analysis is as follow:
This analysis is based on
(fixed) zodiac system and the method of interpretation is mostly according
to Vedic astrology.
President Bush is born
under Cancer ascendant (rising sign) with Mercury and Pluto right on the
ascendant cusp. Moon, the ruler of the ascendant (first house) is in Virgo in
the third house thus exchanges house with Mercury. Moon is in conjunction with
auspicious Jupiter. Same time Uranus and Rahu are in conjunction in the
eleventh house, the house of fame, money and representative of
masses. In addition, both Jupiter and Moon are in auspicious trine with
eleventh house Uranus and Rahu. This trine and Uranus-Rahu and Moon-Jupiter
conjunctions virtually assured President Bush that he has a potential to become a
world leader, especially when the planetary cycles that provide the positive
influence of Uranus, Rahu, Moon, and Jupiter are in operation.
In his ninefold birth chart with Scorpio ascendant, there are 6 planets in the tenth
house, the house of profession, action, and achievements. These are: Rahu, Mars,
Uranus (within in 3 degrees of each other), and Moon, Saturn, and Jupiter (Moon and Saturn
are with in 3 degrees of each other). This confirms that politics is the destiny of this
man. Note the planets Uranus, Rahu, Moon, and Jupiter, all coming together
in the tenth house of his ninefold birth chart, virtually assure him that he
would be a very successful politician. And he certainly became the ultimate politician and the world leader, the president of the
According to Vedic
astrology, since all of the planets in his birth chart reside on one
side of the the lunar nodes, this chart may be affected by Kal-Surp-Yog (meaning
a possibility of being a bit unlucky in achieving what the person deserves or
the final victory may be denied). However, in my opinion, this is really
not true since the planet Uranus is at 26 1/4 degrees of Taurus (just before and
not after the ascending lunar node Rahu) while Rahu is at 26 1/2 degrees of
Taurus. However, precisely this conjunction of Rahu and Uranus also makes him
the most unpopular (and perhaps deeply hated) president in the world politics.
On the election
day (November 2) evening the planets that influence president Bush's day are: Saturn,
Pluto, Ketu, Mercury, Sun, and Venus. Note all of these planets make
conjunctions or trines with each other in his ninefold natal chart. In his progressive chart for
that day Saturn is in the ninth house, Pluto and Mercury in the first, Ketu with
Sun in the twelfth, and Venus in the eleventh. In the
corresponding ninefold progressive chart Saturn is in the tenth, Ketu in the
second, Sun and Pluto in the fifth, and Venus in the sixth.
Pluto are favorably placed for president Bush that evening, other planets: Sun,
Mercury, Ketu and Venus are sort of neutral.
Now lets look at
senator John Kerry's birth chart.
Senator is born
with Scorpio ascendant, the Sun (the ruler of the ninth house) on the ascendant
cusp and the exalted Taurus Moon on the descendant (the seventh house) cusp.
Senator was born on the auspicious day of full Moon thus, making the Sun-Moon
opposition as the most important, powerful and favorable aspect. Libra
Venus on the eleventh house (the house of fame, money and representative of
masses) cusp is in her own sign. Rahu-Pluto conjunction
(less than 45' away from each other) in Cancer occurs in the eighth house.
The fiery planets Mars and Uranus in the sixth house (Vietnam war) make trines with Ketu and
sextiles with both Rahu and Pluto. Auspicious Neptune is in the ninth house.
planetary configurations in Senator's chart are: the favorable and auspicious Sun-Moon
opposition, mystic and very powerful Rahu-Pluto conjunction, favorable Ketu-Uranus,
Mars-Ketu, and Uranus-Neptune trines, and desirable Mars-Rahu, Mars-Pluto,
Uranus-Rahu, Uranus-Pluto, and Mercury-Venus sextiles. These
configurations certainly provide the senator the potential for becoming the
President of the USA. However, the most important challenge for the senator
comes from Mercury-Neptune square. Although very auspicious, the ways of Neptune
always appear to be deceptive, and as a result, the senator's speech (mercury)
and logic (mercurial power) behind that speech is strongly influenced by this
challenging square making him sometimes look like indecisive and complex
(hypocrite) on certain political issues. Notice that both Mercury and Neptune are in flexible
(or common) signs with their unique characteristics of adapting to any dynamic
situation. Senator needs to be aware of this challenge all the time, and
especially when Mercury becomes retrograde. However, on a positive note, the Mercury-Neptune challenge is easily overcome by
the Pluto-Rahu conjunction which in his ninefold chart occurs in the eleventh
house and strengthened by Jupiter's direct aspect and Uranus's influence.
In Senator's ninefold birth chart with Capricorn ascendant,
the axis of his destiny is reflected along the lunar axis with Pluto and Rahu
together in the eleventh house and planets Uranus, Jupiter and Ketu in the fifth
house. Saturn (the seventh house resident planet in his natal chart), the ruler
of the ninefold ascendant, in the tenth house makes his chart politically very
powerful. And the most important is the position of Venus in his ninefold chart.
Venus (the ruler of the seventh house placed right on the
eleventh house cusp in his natal chart) is in the first house of his ninefold
chart virtually assures him success in politics.
On the election
day (November 2) evening the planets that influence Senator's day are:
Sun and Venus. In his progressive chart for that day Sun is in the tenth
and Venus is in the ninth house. In the corresponding
ninefold progressive chart Sun is in the third, and Venus in the fourth
house. Thus, both planets are favorably placed for him for the election
(President Bush's and Senator Kerry's) natal charts are compared against each
other (with out taking in to account the influence of the respective
progressive charts), despite their similarity in strength, President Bush's chart
seems to have an edge over that of Senator Kerry's chart as he has six important planets gathered in the tenth
house (the house of action, achievement, and fame)of his ninefold natal chart.
When compared their
progressive charts for the election day both are so close to each other (both
have equally favorably placed planets) that it's a virtual tie.
Now let us take
compare their planetary transits for the election day. The respective transits are
summarized as follows:
On election day he has his Saturn transiting it's own natal position, and Pluto transiting his natal
Ketu and opposing natal Rahu and Uranus. What does it mean?
the return of Saturn causes a change; usually the change is painful, and is
considered not positive. However, in my opinion, Saturn being in the ninth house
of his progressive chart and in the tenth house of his ninefold progressive
chart the negative influence of Saturn's transit over it's own natal position is
greatly overcome (or nullified) by the positive influence of his progressive
return brings about a change, the planet Pluto has a tendency to irreversibly
transform the present settings to a new level. Pluto's transit over natal
Ketu and opposite natal Rahu and Uranus has certainly not been positive for Bush
in light of what happened (Iraq war situation) over last 1 1/2 to 2 years. This
is the third and the last leg of Pluto's transit over Ketu and opposing
Rahu and Uranus. Pluto being in the first house of his progressive chart...it
seems to me that this is a very negative transit for President Bush.
Senator Kerry: The
transits that will influence Senator's fate on the election night are:
Pluto transits his
natal Sun. Mercury squares natal Jupiter. Venus squares natal Mercury. Jupiter
trines natal Uranus. Sun squares natal nodes and Pluto, and Venus trines her own
natal position. Since Sun, and Venus are the planets that are likely to
influence the senator on the election night, the important transits are: Pluto
transits his natal Sun, Sun squares natal nodes and Pluto, and Venus
trines her own natal position.
transit is very favorable the Pluto's transit and Sun squaring Pluto and lunar
nodes are very
negative for him.
Thus from planetary
transit standpoint, it seems to me that neither of them has a solid edge over the other.
No wonder this race is going to be so close!. And it's likely to be extremely
tight. However, in the light of the last presidential election and the
fact that president Bush survived the critical months of July and August 2004
(by the way he is not yet out of woods and will not be till September 3) when planets were heavily stacked against him
creating a strong possibility of
an event concerning against his own personal safety, and further, assuming the
election outcome gets finalized on the election night (November 2) and doesn't
get dragged on like it did last time in 2000 (which is also a strong possibility and in
that case day-by-day predictions will be provided), it wouldn't
be surprising if president Bush manages to eek out win (perhaps illegitimate as
his critics might say) this time too. In any event, for
better or worse, America's collective destiny, at this point in time in history, will
certainly influence the outcome of this election.
