The Knock-Out Punch

For the last five days, I have been commuting back and forth to Costa Mesa, CA, as I was attending the International Society of Astrological Research (ISAR) Conference. Not only did this take up a lot of my usual writing time; I also found myself in the thick of a huge controversy. The reported "AA-rated" birth-time for Hillary Clinton that ISAR brass used to boost attendance at the closing night Presidential Panel, was uncovered to be a fraud.

As reported in The Washington Post, LA-area astrologer Marc Penfield was slated to appear at ISAR with his "proof" but, pressed on his story, decided to walk back his claims. Even more disappointing, he skipped the conference altogether, his friends saying he was "sick" (When I think of all the time I spent working on that chart for last week's article, I AM SICK!) Instead of obtaining a birth certificate, Penfield's initial story was that he asked some clerk in the Cook Co. Registrar's office to "react" to different birth times he read to her over the phone. Like in All The President's Men, she was supposed to say nothing if he said the right time. After feeding her 8:02 a.m. and 8 p.m., she was reportedly quiet for 2:18 a.m., ergo he assumed he had the pot of gold, that this time was the real deal.

Only problem was, he admitted to the Post he didn't even do that! But no matter, as Penfield had harvested that time from Astrodienst's Hillary Clinton page, and that time was itself problematic. The source for "2:18 a.m." fell through spectacularly when probed, according to Denver astrologer Chris Brennan, host of the Astrology Podcast (hear him discuss that time's issues in his Sept. 29, 2016, program).

Needless to say, this whole ordeal rattled me, since I spent last week's piece defending the blasted new time. I must admit I had been unsettled thinking that if 2:18 a.m. were authentic, Saturn was passing Clinton's IC and square her Ascendant. There were other good indicators, to be sure, but this is the problem we have with depending so much on time of birth. Stick with the bones of the chart, I say! Look at how the Luminaries and hefty Planets are affecting the native's birth planetary positions, in good ole Transits and Progressions.

So this week, we shall do just that.

The Ultimate Indicator

In a way, there's really only one person whose condition we need to examine on Election Day, and that is Barack Obama. Everyone else, you're gambling that what you see as "good" and "bad" is their reaction to the vote. With Chris Christie, is the bad day we see for him on Nov. 8, due to him betting on the wrong candidate, or will he coincidentally get supoenaed on that day to testify in the latest Bridge-gate inquiry? We can't really tell, and that's why I presented the charts of a lot of people in close cahoots with Trump in these last few months to make my case.

But Obama is different. On Election Day he has one consuming focus — Will my legacy survive? Now the answer to this can't be wishy-washy. Can we really just say something like, "Oh yes, Moon will sextile his Sun. Hillary will win!"

Well, the answer to that is no, not just The Moon, but if you say The Progressed Moon, now you might have something!

A progressed Moon sextile or trine the natal Sun is a feel-good month. This looks promising for the incumbent president. The Moon (the people) support his core self (Sun) — in other words, all that he has been doing these last eight years. It also could indicate a Woman being of great service to President Obama.

Hey Lady, is Progressed Moon All You Got?

OK, OK, would you believe an extremely supportive, transiting Jupiter?

That's right, on Election Day, transiting Jupiter completes a sextile to Barack Obama's natal Sun.

There's nothing that can beat that Jupiter, nothing sufficiently countering it from challenging aspect, either. Mid-sized dwarf 2002 TC302 (12 Taurus 37) is transiting square his n. Sun, but that's a long-term influence with its 411-year orbit. TC's Neptunian flavor is more likely the dissolution of his life as President, as he looks beyond this climactic period of his life. For example, how does he top this? What are his new goals? All his familiar routines will be swept away. The resulting emotions explain what TC is doing there, but Jupiter represents a sharp, full-throated exhulation, a clear victory.

Consequently for me, those fortunate figures in transit and progression are the equivalent of two 3-pointers both somehow arcing into the basket to break a tie score in the last 10 seconds of Game 7 of the Championships. Say No More!

Do we need any more positive indicators than this?
Wikileaks is still releasing hacked e-mails from Hillary staffers, so perhaps there will be more dips and weaves in the polls.
Still I hope you are at least resolved, no matter what, to
