of his progressive chart and the Neptune's opposition to his
natal Rahu and Uranus, President Obama will have

deception. With Uranus in the eighth house of his
progressive chart and in the first house of his ninefold

out to do as a part of American evolution of the 21st century.

Uranus-Saturn opposition is likely to leave its distinct mark by

during the second half of the month.

month will be very negative for the region since terrorism,
violence and social unrest are
