Obama’s Grandmother and the South Node

A reader wrote to me the other day about an article she had read where a Vedic astrologer predicted that Obama would be assassinated because Ketu (the South Node of the Moon) would be conjunct Obama’s Sun.

I dearly want to respect my colleagues, but I feel that when we predict death of any kind we are stepping over the line.  First, I’m not sure how possible it is, and second, I’m not sure how useful it is to have that kind of information.

The conjunction of the South Node to the natal Sun is something that occurs for all of us every 19 years or so.  I looked up my own last transit of the South Node to my Sun, and since my Sun conjuncts Saturn, another “malefic”, a Vedic or traditional astrologer might predict terrible things for that day.  As far as I know, nothing horrible happened although I did post an article on Lindsay Lohan’s “annus horribilis.”  Maybe that was the way the South Node expressed itself.

The South Node represents our past and things we must learn from the past.  The conjunction of the South Node to the Sun, our Essential Self, may put us in touch with something unfinished from an earlier part of our life that needs resolution.  Obama’s grandmother IS his past – she raised him and is credited for helping to shape him into the man he is today.  The timing of the transiting South Node across his Sun at this time appears significant in light of the failing health of his grandmother, and the fact that she may not survive to see him elected which would coincide with the exact hit of the South Node to the Sun.

Obama’s Birthtime – settled by Astrodatabank

Astrodatabank has confirmed that the 1:06 pm birthtime for Obama that is floated around is a myth.

Date and place from media sources including Obama’s IL General Assembly webpage. Various times of birth have been circulated or posted. A time of 1:06 PM was provided by Fran McEvoy who told PT she couldn’t remember who gave it to her. She said that the person reportedly obtained the time from Obama and wished to remain anonymous. McEvoy adamantly denied that she heard it from Obama at a “shout-out” in NH as reported in the Andrew Mangino article in the NY Observer online of July 24, 2007. PT has received e-mails or seen postings listing 9:51 AM, 10:02 AM, 1:15 PM, 2:10 AM, 6:10 AM, “1-3 AM,” and “Virgo rising,” but these times have either been acknowledged to be speculation, rectification or otherwise not traceable to an original or reliable source.

This gives us an opportunity to stop arguing over which house Obama’s Pluto is in and keep an eye on the greater picture.
