Barack Obama Is a Great Speaker

Barack Hussein Obama served as the 44th President of the United States and is the first African American to have been elected to this office. His presidency was a difficult one, fraught with two wars he “inherited” and a dire financial situation that was in full swing when he was inaugurated.

Mr. Obama is such a great speaker that much of the American public fell in love with him when he gave the keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, where he spoke about hope and change and said that “We are the change that we seek.” The next morning, everyone was saying, “Did you hear that man’s speech? He was amazing!"

Obama Presidency Upset Certain People

Although Obama is very popular in other countries, there is a contingent of people in the U.S. who dislike him, and have tried to discredit him from the moment he took office. I am casting his Astrological profile to give my readers a picture of Obama the man, not the politician. He was born August 4, 1961, in Honolulu, Hawaii, and I will not respond to anyone who insists he was born in Kenya. There are also those who insist that he is a Socialist, although the U.S. is a Democratic Republic, and remains so. If you have any questions about the Astrology chart, I will be happy to answer them. I also invite other Astrologers to add to my interpretation.

Sun Sign Leo

Mr. Obama has a Sun in Leo, in his 6th house. Leo is a fire sign, and Leos are warm and charming individuals. They are full of vitality, very generous to friends, and have a knack for making everyone they speak to feel important. Like the Lion who represents the sign, and is King of the Jungle, Leos love the spotlight, and know how to shine in it. They want to get lots of attention. Leos are lucky too, they just have a way of being in the right place at the right time. Providence steps in for them just at the time when they need it. Communication is an important skill for a President, and this one uses it well. Leos have noble ideas, and are great at self expression.

As this writer watched Obama during his Presidency, it became obvious that he is a very disciplined and organized person. I expected to find something in Capricorn, and I did. His Saturn is in the 11th house of hopes, wishes, and friends, in Capricorn, and is part of a Mars/Saturn trine. This indicates ability for very hard work, and serious, purposeful action. He has given speeches where he sounds like the Father who says, “You have to take the bad medicine now if you want things to get better.” Mars is exalted in a house ruled by Capricorn, so Obama is capable of producing a maximum amount of positive results with a minimum of wasted energy.

The man has tremendous willpower, and this will be seen again, as important traits show up several ways in a horoscope. This former President attacks problems with almost mathematical precision, and is also highly ambitious, as a result of his Mars (actions, what you like to do) and also wants to be in positions of authority. This is also because of his Leo planets, which we will discuss. He is a shrewd politician, and is very patient, although he is also skillful and daring in his actions when he deems it necessary. He favors those on his staff who shoulder serious responsibilities well. Barack Obama also has the mental and emotional strength to endure hardship and much stress, if he believes it will help to achieve the results he wants. He has endurance and stamina too. He has been called, “No drama Obama” by his staff.

Ambitious and Practical

The Saturn in his 11th house is an indicator of his strong ambition for power, status and authority, and this usually manifests through business, science and politics. Former President Obama feels he needs to make significant achievements in his career and undertakes no endeavors without practical purposes in mind. He wavers between favoring his ambitions and protecting his security, because his Saturn and Jupiter are conjunct. Obama has an aura of dignity and is very serious, and because of his Aquarius ascendant, can sometimes appear austere and cold.

He is actually conservative, since he had to struggle so much in his early life to fit in, and this has helped to form the practical and conservative nature he now has. Mr. Obama feels everyone should earn what they get from their own efforts, and that when others “reach the top,” they should reach out and advise others so they too, can help themselves. Obama is responsible towards his friends and group associations, and may seek to know important and influential people to advance his status and career. He is a loyal friend and appreciates anyone who can help contribute to his knowledge and intellectual growth. Obama likes to establish relationships with older, serious, career minded people, as they have a maturing affect on him.

Obama’s Sun in the 6th house of work reveals that he takes his work very seriously. Leos can be hard workers, and put a lot of energy into their work relationships. They try really hard to get along with anyone who they must interact with on a regular basis. He also has a stellium in Leo in the 6th house, besides his Sun in 12 degrees of Leo, his Mercury is in 2 degrees of Leo, and Uranus is in 25 degrees Leo. Leos think everyone has as much integrity as they do, and can be overly confident if they are not careful. They are also frank and outspoken, as Leo is a fixed sign, meaning they are stubborn and do not easily change. Once Obama sees the point in a discussion, he wants to move on. If others disagree with him, he will listen to their views as long as his dignity is respected. Do not forget, Leos want to be liked, and he puts considerable energy toward that goal.

Comfortable in Positions of Authority and Responsibility

Leos are dramatic, that’s a given. They need approval and will do much to get it from others, but will sacrifice the public approval if it means a sacrifice to their self approval. Obama is very hard on himself, and will not allow himself to be forced into a compromising position. As long as he is in the position of authority and responsibility, no stone will be unturned to justify the confidence placed in him. Leos are natural leaders, creative at making policies, because they are practical, philosophical and stubborn. This former President will not fight unfairly, and is magnanimous in defeat. He is sensitive to the working conditions of others, but likes to do things in his own way, and does not like to work under close supervision.

The Sun in the 6th house of health and diet means he needs good eating habits, but with First Lady Michelle, who made healthy food habits her pet project, I doubt this is a problem. Obama probably experiments with different diets, and seems to be naturally thin. People with 6th house Suns seek distinction through work and service, and take great pride in their achievements. They are also very demanding of their employees.

Having planet Uranus in the 6th house indicates that Obama has unusual and advanced ideas regarding work and service. He approaches problems with originality and inventiveness. This is often a placement found in engineers and technicians, or computer programmers. Obama likes to be around people who make him feel mentally stimulated. Obama’s campaign was the first to utilize the internet to the point that many small donations from many people added up fast. It also allowed Obama to get his message out fast, to squash any rumors or bad news in the same day’s news cycle.

So he was able to address the American people more than any other campaigning President had done prior to his run for office. Mr. Obama worked at the University of Chicago Law School for 12 years, teaching and lecturing as a Professor of Constitutional Law, and was the first Black President of the Harvard Law Review, a huge achievement. When he is described as “a community organizer” these important facts are conveniently left out. He also worked as an associate at two law firms, Sidley Austin and Hopkins and Sutter. He was a consultant and instructor of the Gamaliel Foundation, a community organizing institute. He graduated Harvard Law School magna cum laude, then traveled to Europe, and finally to Kenya, to meet his paternal relatives for the first time. It was during his period working at Sidley Austin that he met Michelle, though she did not want to date him at first!

Resourceful and Ruled By His Head

Mercury (how you think) is also in the 6th house, showing Obama’s strong will and fixed purpose once again. He is capable of focused concentration. He likes to be regarded as an authority in his chosen fields, and he communicates with a dramatic flair and forceful manner, if need be. He has self confidence and a positive attitude when tackling problems. This man deals with things in large and general terms, and likes to leave the little details to others. A stubborn Mercury in Leo makes him slow to form opinions, and reluctant to change them.

Barack Obama’s Moon is in 3 degrees of Gemini. Since it sextiles his Mercury in Leo, he easily empathizes with all people and understands their situations. His ability to express himself in such a way that his listeners are deeply moved is an asset to him. His Moon is in the 4th house, meaning Obama’s home life is very meaningful to him. Since the Moon represents change, we know that he moved many times as a younger person.

He lived in Hawaii with his Mom, but when she remarried a few years later, Obama lived in Indonesia for four years. He can speak Indonesian on a conversational level. He spent most of his life raised by his maternal grandparents, and his father left when he was 2. His emotional nature is vacillating, though he is quick witted and resourceful. In fact, he would talk constantly if people let him, but can get annoying. Obama is inclined to rationalize his emotions, so sometimes even he is not really sure how he feels with that Gemini Moon.

He is a restless person, and his changes of residences growing up did not hurt him. He likes to take short vacations, and is a rather nervous and fidgety person, something the public does not see. Mr. Obama has a tendency to spread himself too thin. But this Moon position is another indication of his resourceful thinking and ideas, though his emotions are subject to rational analysis.

Barack Obama’s Moon in the 4th house means he has a deep, emotional identification with home and family. His Grandparents played an important role in trying to keep his home life stable. He is a person who would never be happy if he was unable to marry and form a strong attachment to someone to have a family life together. His family relationships (or lack of one with his Father, and little attention from his Mother) have affected his outlook on life. Because he has lived in another country, he does have a broader world view than some people do. He wrote the book Dreams of My Father to make an attempt to understand him better.

Barack and Michelle Obama on Inauguration Day, 2012.

Former President Obama’s Moon trines his Jupiter, meaning he enjoys the simple, everyday happenings of the present. He is normally a good-natured person, and well liked by his entourage. Obama likes to have an active social life and wants his life and relationships to go smoothly. He is fond of moments when he can relax and unwind, because of the nerve wracking Gemini Moon. He also likes privacy more than one would expect, but is capable of giving it up if work demands it.

This Moon also squares Pluto, and Obama distrusts large groups. Growing up with a Black and White parent, and moving around so much, he felt different all the time, sort of like “the Ugly Duckling.” It's always hard to be "the new kid" and even though we mature and change, that pain is still there, it just gets sublimated into something else. The former President feels his characteristics and past seem alien to others, and as if he always had to try extra hard to fit in. He needs to be accepted, but will not forsake his values to be liked. If you watch his eyes when he is delivering yet another speech about how Congress blocked one of his good ideas, you can see the anger in them, but he is highly disciplined, so this is how he gets by with them doing everything in their power to try to make him fail.

Obama’s Moon also trines Saturn; again showing us how important a stable family life is to him. He is true to himself, but is logical and a perfectionist even in his most intimate behavior. He does not try the easy way out of difficult situations; this just brings out his best traits of stability and perfectionism. He does have deep emotions, but is reserved and does not always like to show them outwardly. If he had his way, he would like more time for reading, studying and contemplation.

Obama has Venus in Cancer, in the 5th house, so is actually much more emotionally vulnerable than one would expect. He is sensitive and tender, deeply romantic behind that dignified exterior. Venus in Cancer people are normally shy in social situations, but all those Leo planets help him become more outgoing. This means he would be more of a homebody if he could. His moods fluctuate often, and his strong desire for a calm and happy home life stem from his unpredictable upbringing. Obama truly cherishes his wife and daughters. He likes to have a good time, and has a sunny outlook on life.

The Venus in the 5th house means his marriage will be happy, and that he has a strong love of the arts, likes the theater and musical performances. Obama has a deep love of children, and with Venus in the 5th house, if he had others, they would likely be girls. Several aspects have shown that the Mr. Obama has artistic abilities. He has been heard to sing on occasion, and actually did sing a few lines of an Al Green song a few months ago, and sounded very good. Record sales for the song went way up! After the shooting at the church in Charleston, he broke out into "Amazing Grace", and as the choir and congregation joined him, there wasn't a dry eye in the church.

Democratic and Spiritual

Obama has Venus in 1 degree of Cancer, which sextiles his Pluto in 6 degrees of Virgo in the 8th house; a clear indication of his strong emotions. He possesses keen and clear perceptions and understands the transforming power of love. The Venus also trines Neptune, and tells us again Obama has a highly romantic nature, which he keeps very private. A person with his Venus placements would not normally be inclined towards practicality, but too many other aspects in Obama’s horoscope point to his practical and perfectionist nature.

He has a special and mystical understanding of other’s deep emotions, and it is soothing to be in his presence. Once again this is an aspect which shows artistic creativity in art or music. He truly understands the laws of balance and harmony as they relate to creative principles. The former President has a Cancer Venus sextile a Virgo Mars, showing his happy and energetic disposition. This aspect assures compatibility in his marriage, and his inclinations to be a social creature. This is probably one reason he has used the media in such a positive way, as his popularity has been a professional asset in his business dealings.

The Mars in 22 degrees of Virgo in his 7th house trines his 11th house Saturn in 25 degrees Capricorn, promising energy and skill whenever work is concerned. Mars rules sharp instruments, and Virgo rules precision, so many surgeons have this aspect. In this case, Obama plans actions very carefully, and executes them systematically. He will not act without good, practical reasons. The former President is a strong perfectionist, and is very critical and organized, expecting his staff and friends to be so in their responsibilities as well.

Barack Obama has an Aquarius Ascendant, which is an air sign that can make a person appear detached, and ascendants are about how you appear. He is determined, philosophical and a humanitarian, who comes across as refined. Obama has a reasonable disposition, is thoughtful, with a good memory, and he is discriminative about how he uses his time and who he spends it with. He lives in a very mental world, sometimes lost in his thoughts, but has clear responses and is very capable of dealing with facts. Aquarius influences make one fond of reforms, and they are champions of progressive ideas. They have generous and good hearted natures.

Since Aquarius is a fixed sign, like his Leo Sun, Obama has strong likes and dislikes. But he is very sociable, and has many acquaintances. He is capable of a steady application of concentration and thought, and an inventive genius when it comes to his literary abilities. He appreciates all kinds of knowledge, as he is intelligent and has great reasoning abilities, which we have seen with his Mars in Capricorn. Most important traits in a person’s horoscope will show up in more than one way. Mr. Obama is fond of his friends, and they know he is a humanizing influence, because he truly believes all people should be equal. Obama has Neptune in his 9th house, showing an interest in all forms of religions and that he is a spiritual person.

Barack Obama is a very hard-working, intelligent and disciplined man. In this writer's opinion, the way Congress treated him is a disgrace, wasting much of the his whole term by opposing anything he wanted. It is doubtful they even read or listened to much of what was proposed. But he still managed to accomplish a lot. The country was ready to fall into a Depression when Obama took office. He saved the auto industry. And he worked hard to see as many people as possible have health care. He believes women can be trusted to know their own bodies, even if it causes them to make heartbreaking decisions like abortion. It is never a decision that is taken lightly.

I believe that anyone who has a background even a little bit different than their own scares many American people. The lies and misrepresentations of Barack Obama's life have disgusted and shocked me. I hoped and believed that at this juncture in history, people realized that we are all the same, regardless of the color of our skin, or the differences of our upbringing. It appears that some people in the U.S. truly think Barack Obama has tried to turn our country into a Socialist nation. But we, the American citizens, elect both the President and the Congress. This is why it is so important to VOTE in your local and state elections, not only the Presidential ones.

Obama’s Jupiter is conjunct his Saturn, giving him his serious outlook on life, and involvement in heavy responsibilities. He must overcome severe obstacles (Saturn) to expand his business affairs (Jupiter), and will need infinite patience to realize them (which he seems to have). Jupiter is in a weak conjunction to the President’s Aquarius ascendant, meaning that he does not have class, racial or religious distinctions about people. He insists that social, religious and moral values are universal, and is democratic in every respect. His Jupiter in Aquarius is an indicator that he knows we can learn unique lessons and have valuable contributions from each person in society. He has a strong desire to share spiritually with people from all walks of life, and is wished the very best in what will be a close election. Former President Barack Obama realizes that each person has an important role to play in the spiral of life.

Toward the Future

The face of our country is changing rapidly, and is becoming the melting pot is was meant to be when it was founded. America is still the greatest country in the world, and we can make it greater still. We need each other to do that, and must meet each other halfway.

People come from all over the world to live here and find opportunity, and we are still bound by Lady Liberty's invitation, "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses." We will find our way together.

Firstly, we are a Democratic Republic, read a history book and get your facts correct.

He was indeed born in Hawaii. If you don't like Astrology and only wanted to find fault with me, for an objective piece written before Obama was elected President (twice) why did you even read it? How hateful. I also wrote a piece on Mitt Romney, the corporate raider, as objectively as I could. I do this every POTUS election cycle as people ask for me to do so.

And the US is a Democratic Republic. Go back and read a history book. You don't even know what you are talking about.

I have a worldwide following and make a living from my Astrology skills. I meet all kinds of people.

Robert Sacchi on June 05, 2017:

Thank you.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 04, 2017:

Answered on the Obama hub.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 04, 2017:

Since I write a lot about Astrology and other metaphysical things, the only products they accept are books. And now they expect you to discuss why this book helped you, why you like it, etc.

Each sign has a gemstone, but they didn't like those either.

They seem to be only accepting hubs with one Amazon capsule, maybe you can get away with two if you will explain why it's important. I gave up and took most Amazon capsules off of my hubs. Books pay so little it's not worth it.

Robert Sacchi on June 04, 2017:

Thank you for the advice. The problem I'm running into with their editing is they don't like Amazon capsules. I've heard from other Hubbers they are even worse with Amazon capsules one their niche sites. What has your experience been with niche sites and Amazon capsules?

Grand total of hit in the last 24 hours. I was hoping it was a technical glitch on HubPages. The single hit proves it's not the case.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 03, 2017:


I believe Google changed the algorithm about 6 weeks ago, that was the month I didn't make the payout, which has been consistent plus more since the hubs were moved to niches. Yes, pick maybe 3 of your best hubs, and think of how to improve them in little ways. There is an edibot going around correcting grammar. The URL will always be the same, but you can give it a new title with more zing to it. Check Google to see what others are calling hubs about the topic, and pick something else. Read the guidelines, they are sticklers for capital letters and little mistakes now. And submit one at a time to a niche. As I said, if they accept it (and they have accepted ones I liked but didn't get much traffic) you will notice a bump up of money in about 2 months. Good luck.

Robert Sacchi on June 03, 2017:

I wouldn't delete a Hub. I've had Hubs that have been quiet for a long time then get a spike. I haven't tried the niche site routine. Thanks for the advice. I got zero hits today. That hasn't happened to me for a long time. It's not the direction I like things to be going.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 03, 2017:

Hmm, it looks like you have an interesting niche. Sometimes when I am not making the payout or more, I change titles to make a hub sound more exciting, or pictures, and reword things a little. When I get really discouraged, I consider deleting hubs. But then I read them, and some of them have good bones. They just need to be freshened up with some new facts. Some of your topics are serious, maybe tell some anecdotes about things that happened making these planes, or add a poll. Are you submitting any to the niche sites? You can do it twice a month. It takes about 2 months, but you will get more traffic. Of course, HP will take time to correct them, it seems they can harp about a comma for at least two weeks!

Robert Sacchi on June 03, 2017:

Yes, spend a lot of my spare time writing. I'm never at a loss for ideas. Unfortunately I get get few hits. I earn about 1-2 cents a day. It's not a good business model:-)

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 03, 2017:

Thanks. It looks like you wrote quite a bit on HP too. It's hard with all the changes now.

Robert Sacchi on May 31, 2017:

Thank you for the response. I'm glad HubPages is working out for you.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 30, 2017:

Hi Ms. Lizzie,

Isn't it awful? Obama was a class act. Can you imagine if he made a friend an important advisor, or brought in family members? And we've known he let Russia play around in our election because Putin hates Hillary. I was doing a tarot reading where a couple was considering moving to Viet Nam, Russia or the US, and actually chose Russia. Other countries are afraid of what Trump might do. And can you imagine if Obama ever cheated on Michele? Not that he would, he loves her so much. I hope he gets impeached fast, I can't take it. I didn't realize his real estate biz was just a family one. He has no CEO or Bd. or Directors. So he doesn't even have the business skills we thought he had. I cried all night when Hillary lost.

Liz Elias from Oakley, CA on May 30, 2017:


We have gone from first class to white trash, IMO.

President Obama was treated horribly, and it sickens me. Why, in this day and age, people cannot realize that color of skin does not a "race" make. We are but ONE race: the HUMAN race.

If the bigots can ever get that through their thick skulls, then maybe we can actually get somewhere!

Great, detailed analysis of his 'scope. I'm still in the learning process, so a lot of it was over my head, but still fascinating. I have a friend who will be interested in this; she's the one trying to teach this old dog new tricks! ;-)

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 30, 2017:

Hi Robert,

No, the rules are the same, but there are more styles now, like Indian Astrology. That was likely always there, but we didn't practice it in the West. A lot of people are adding on all the asteroids, but I think they are only good for world forecasts, and in regular people's charts are BS. Pluto is no longer considered a planet, but in Astrology it is still important. Your question is a good one and would make a great hub. Since we've been moving hubs to niches, I'm getting so many requests for charts and tarot readings I haven't had time to write hubs, but thanks for the thought. I like it!

Robert Sacchi on May 30, 2017:

Planets Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto are relatively recent discoveries. I was under the mistaken impression the "rules" of Astrology were ancient. How did these later discoveries change astrological charts? I can see where this would make an interesting hub.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 17, 2014:

Thanks for visiting Hackslap, always nice to get input from others who know the language! Take care.

Harry from Sydney, Australia on July 17, 2014:

As a strong believer in numerology and Astrology I found this hub very accurate and interesting ..voted up! (From a Gemini with an Aquarius rising and Scorpio moon)

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 16, 2014:

Thanks for reading DzyMsLizzy,

I haven't been adding much content to HP, but am considering a return. I really like Elizabeth Warren too. I like your suggestion, and would enjoy doing charts on Hillary and Elizabeth. Thanks for the idea.

Best Regards, Jean

Liz Elias from Oakley, CA on July 16, 2014:

Well, this was a most fascinating and enlightening read.

I, too, have been thoroughly disgusted with this do-nothing congress who, instead of doing their jobs have sought only to penalize the President and the country at large for voting a black man into the 'white' house. I have NO doubt that is their sole motive, even though they will not admit it.

I'd be interested to see your take and forecast on both Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren, as to whether either of them are astrologically suited as presidential material, and indeed, if either will decide to run.

Voted up, useful, awesome and interesting.

Audrey Selig from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on July 16, 2014:

Thank you Jean for this article about President Obama. I love your interest in Astrology and all the interpreting you do. It must have taken a long time to learn this information. Your writing is excellent and detailed, and I wish you would come back and stay. I know you must do what is best, and I do love to run into you once in a while. Sharing. Blessings, Audrey

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 28, 2013:

Hello Aqua,

I'm not going to keep defending this. The Ascendant is in 18 degrees of Aquarius. I did not cast this horoscope for time saving purposes, it took hours to interpret it. This style of chart is hard to read, but the Saturn/Jupiter conjunction is in the 11th house. It's hard to see the houses, but if you look closer, they are between the 11 and 12, the houses are labeled outside the circle. Most astrologers would put them inside the sidereal, so it would be easier to read.

Aqua on December 27, 2013:

It was me-I was just pointing out that Obamas ascendant is 18 degrees Aquarius, his Saturn/Jupiter conjunction is in the 12th house and his Uranus/North node is in the 7th house-its important to be accurate when writing and practising astrology.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 24, 2013:

Oops! Someone left me a comment and I accidentally deleted it. And it was someone with a good grasp of Astrology. I hope you return. You had an observation about the conjunction before Obama's Ascendant. The Saturn/Jupiter conjunction is in the 11th house. His Mars is exalted in Scorpio's 8th house. I can't recall what else you said--something about nodes. I usually don't read them for hub purposes, it took me 3 years to convince my readers a horoscope was more than the sign your Sun was when you were born! If you come back I'd be happy to discuss. Take care.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 04, 2013:

Well, you didn't come to this hub because of an interest in astrology, you came to rant against President Obama. I spent about 5 hours interpreting this horoscope to the best of my ability, and stand by what I said, especially in regard to his love of his marriage and family. As far as Nancy Reagan, I mean no disrespect to her, but for her age and time she was very naïve about the drug culture, how it grows, and how it affects whole communites. "Just Say No" doesn't cut it when you live in a ghetto run by gun toting drug pushers. A young person has little chance of overcoming drug use or getting educated in such an environment. Ronald Reagan's tougher gun laws made a difference. That's something the R's in our time should study and learn from. Did you read my profile of Mitt Romney? I tried to be equally fair about him, though I admitted I was not voting for him.

Dubesor on June 03, 2013:

Your astrology chart, and I believe Nancy Reagan would agree, has been miscalculated by Obama drug use, drug use always being dear to Nancy of creating deceitfulness. Look at all your pictures and it seems that they are all fake, just acting. Look at the economic results during his terms in office, and that is my proof I am right. I predict it will be eight years of bad results with the first five years of bad results proof you did not compensate correctly your astrogoly chart for drug use, something Nancy would say is understandable and maybe impossible. I say you need at least a four star adjustment to realize Obama is just an empty suit.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on November 19, 2012:

Leos can sneak up on you, they are so charming. I live in NJ, and during our weeklong power outage, was invited to various friend's houses to eat and take showers. My son is a substitute teacher, looking for a F/T position. We met this really assertive woman, lovely, but pushy, but also with political connections to some local schools. She asked me to guess her sign, and I guess my mind was foggy from a week of being cold. I knew she was assertive and talkative, but decided on Aquarius. She was Leo, duh. Bill Clinton is Leo too! I tried to be fair with Obama and Romney, lol.

Donna Lichtenfels from California, USA on November 18, 2012:

Awesome! It is amazing that an astrological chart so accurately reflects personality traits. Have long believed in the merits of astrology. Both this article and the one on Romney are very accurate as far as the personality traits that they each exhibit, at least in my opinion. It didn't even hit me that Obama is a Leo. I should have recognized it. My mother was a Leo and exhibited many of the same traits, especially the natural charisma.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on November 05, 2012:

Hi Aubrey,

I'm happy you enjoyed it! I'm hoping he wins the election tomorrow. I like your screen name. Thank you for reading and commenting.

Very interesting and detailed piece about our President. I'm sure you're spot on about this one! He seems to show those characteristics when speaking to the public or when in the public eye. Interesting read, jean. :) I look forward to seeing you are the hubs!

I am not going to argue with you that Astrology is propaganda. As far as what I said about the President, I have just interpreted his horoscope here. I do intend to vote for him though. I also interpreted Mitt Romney's horoscope, and did my best to be fair. I often get comments or requests from people who are not members of HP, and they are usually negative or unfit for approval. Best Wishes.

Again, pure propaganda. Funny how you deleted my previous comment.

Pure Propaganda!

Thank you for your comments and for catching that typo for me! I usually write late at night, and no matter how many times I proofread, I always find something in the days to come. I think once your mind "saw" it one way, you can read it 100 times and still not see the error. Take care!

Hello and great writing as always. I just think this was an error when you wrote "Jupiter is opposite the President’s Aquarius ascendant" Jupiter in Aquarius and an Aquarius Ascendant means Jupiter cannot be in opposition to it. Again thank you for your insightful look into the President.

Hi 2besure,

I am glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for reading it.

Very thorough and interested hub!

Hi Patrice,

Thank you, coming from a terrific Astrologer like you that means a lot to me! I was a little surprised by the 2 Virgo planets, I had Capricorn in mind, because he is so ambitious. That Venus in Cancer means it must have hurt a lot to feel that he couldn't fit in, and it's a shame how he's been treated by Congress. I know we take our childhood lessons into our adulthoods, but that doesn't mean they hurt any less. But as you say, the Indonesia experiences and living in multicultural Hawaii probably made it easy for him to relate to everyone. Leos are so warm anyway, but the 6th house does mean he is very committed to this country. And the perfectionism does come through loud and clear. I hope he wins, my husband and I usually help our local Democrats on Election Day, making phone calls to remind people to vote, or giving anyone a ride to the polls, if they are handicapped or elderly. We are the Treasurer (me) and Sargeant at Arms (he) in our very small town Dem club (you would think we were communists in this town)! But I worked my self hard to get this up before the convention, lol, and typed like mad last night from the notes I had taken from the chart. I swear, aren't the conventions early this year? I knew I'd do this piece long ago, but it snuck up on me! Take care, and hope all is well in beautiful Hawaii.

Great analysis, Jean! I think the fact that Pres. Obama's Leo sun is in the 6th house softens it with a focus on service. I didn't realize he had so many Virgo placements, but I do see the perfectionism in him.

I read an excellent article about his childhood (wish I had the link), including the time he spent in Indonesia. He was teased because he was different, and his mother taught him not to let it bother him. That lesson has served him well as President.

Hawaii is so multicultural, in the truest sense of the word where cultures intermingle instead of separating themselves into distinct neighborhoods (although that does happen here); so it's a great place to learn how to get along successfully with people who are different from you. And then there's the "aloha spirit" which transcends all differences. It's a great training ground for someone whose job it is to serve ALL people.

Thanks for sharing this astro portrait of Pres. Obama. Voted up, useful, interesting, and shared.

I think your interpretation was 'spot on.'

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 04, 2012:

Hi Minnetonka Twin,

Long time, no see! Thanks for reading and commenting! It is hard to change the mind of a Leo! It's gratifying for me when people read my interpretation and feel it is accurate. Take care.

Linda Rogers from Minnesota on September 04, 2012:

Thanks for the astrological profile of President Obama. I found it very interesting to read this and compare it to what I see in him. I can see how a Leo would be a great president. I know many Leo's and they know what they want and don't want.
