When Barack Obama walks into any room its occupants will sit up straight, adjust their ties, smooth down their lapels, and sigh with relief, because this is not only a man who talks business, he is the first Black American President to sit in the White House. Yes, this awesome gentleman is far more than a myth in his own time; he is a standard bearer for change, carrying the legacy of “I had a dream” Martin Luther King, to the top of the proverbial mountain. His qualifications are stellar. Barack Obama is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School. He worked as a community organiser in the city of Chicago, and a civil rights attorney in that same city. He did three terms in the Illinois Senate and ran for the United States Senate in 2004 being elected in November of that same year and running for presidency against Hilary Clinton. His Mars in Virgo would have gifted him with an almost inhuman capacity to reach for the highest goal, his eye consistently on the big picture. Something deep within Barack Obama’s psyche pushes him on; perhaps his need to help humanity, to give of himself is always in the forefront of his mind.
Barack Obama was a community organiser in Chicago before earning his law degree, and taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School. But above all, his presentation and persona were consistently charismatic, and he has now become an historic leader during one of the most transformational eras this planet has ever seen. Few of us will forget Barack Obama’s victory over the Republican candidate John McCain, and the night he stood in front of the jubilant citizens of Chicago to tell them that “Change” had come to America. There was something magical in the air that night. Obama’s grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, had died on November 2, 2008 just days before his election as the President of the United States, and that news had caused great grief to him. Yet, as he stood in front of the people of Chicago that night, Destiny had touched his life forever. Indeed, there was something so inspirational about Barack Obama’s persona, his speech, and the occasion, that street celebrations “happened” from Brighton to Botswana; we were all aware the world was about to shift to a new level.
Barack Obama was born on the 4th of August 1961 in Honolulu Hawaii. A Leo child of mixed race parentage, few would have realised he would become the magnanimous leader of the most powerful country in the world. Yet throughout his life he has retained the better qualities of the Leo sun sign, the open hearted attitudes, the inspirational perceptions and the generous demeanour.
As an adult Barack Obama stands erect, his strength honed in, his Taurus moon obstinacy encouraging him to push until he reaches all his goals, gifting him with inborn emotional strength and resilience, plus a capacity to make the right decisions. Mercury in Leo would have kept him upbeat and positive when confronted with challenges. Barack Obama would never have looked to others to fight his battles for him. In fact, as a kid, he would have kept a well stocked piggy bank and a strong sense of the harsher realities of life.
Barack Obama had an unusual upbringing. He said “That my father looked nothing like the people around me and that he was black as pitch, my mother white as milk barely registered in my mind.” And “I’ve got relatives who look like Bernie Mac and I’ve got relatives who look like Margaret Thatcher” His mother was Stanley Ann Dunham, her origins not only American-Kansas, but English. His father Barack Obama, Sr. was a Leo, from Nyanza Province, Kenya. His parents met in a Russian language class at the University of Hawaii and tied the knot in 1961; Barack was born later that same year. It would be a challenge for any mixed raced child to integrate, and the situation was no different for Obama, but he was lucky, as he said, “The opportunity that Hawaii offered to experience a variety of cultures in a climate of mutual respect became an integral part of my world view and a basis for the values that I hold most dear”.
Like most college kids Barack Obama experimented with drugs, but he judges himself harshly for this, all the same, positive lessons were learnt, and resulted in his humane perception of the challenges youth faces today. In June 1989, Obama met his soul mate Michelle Robinson at a Chicago law firm. His attraction was immediate, she was organised, well turned out, obviously a woman who dotted her I’s and crossed her T’s, and Obama’s Mars in Virgo likes things to be lined up perfectly. She turned him down when he asked her out on the first date. But she noted there was something about the man, his fervent ideas, his obvious decency, his inspirational perceptions, not only was she fascinated but she soon fell deeply in love. They married in October 1992, and their first daughter Malian Ann was born in 1998, and little Natasha later in 2001. With that Venus in Cancer Obama would be a sensitive husband and doting father. Barack Obama needs a hard headed woman to be the power behind his throne, and Michelle is all of that and more. In any event domestic stability is his inspiration, and Venus in Cancer would gift him with the loving strength of a united family to light his way.
Michelle and Barack Obama respect each other, and notice the little things that mean a lot. In fact, Michelle not only supports, but has become part of Obama’s vision. She might not be aware his Jupiter is in Aquarius and that it will make him one of the most inspiring leaders many generations have seen, but she senses it. In fact that bountiful planet will encourage Barack Obama to stretch across barricades with motivational oratory, sustaining humanity’s higher purpose and encouraging those who have lost hope, even in their dreams.
Obama’s mother died of ovarian cancer, and could not be there to see her son touch the stars. She taught him compassion when she died without the money to pay for health care. Perhaps it was then Obama decided to do everything he could to help the disadvantaged. From a spiritual perspective, his Sun Sign is guiding him to fulfil his mission on planet earth. This means great personal sacrifice; he cannot but listen to his calling though.
We will see Barack Obama opening out channels of communication with international leaders. His intention is to find ways of guiding this planet into a new era.Whether he fails or succeeds will depend not only on him, but the citizens of the world. If we agree to his “Yes We Can!” we will, indeed, and discover a new and better way of living our lives in the process!Speak to one of my hand-chosen psychics, instantly and confidentially!
