Finding a Balance: Mundane and Natal Astrology in

American Presidential Election Contests


Regulus Astrology LLC, all rights reserved.

Intent and Scope
Written more in the form of an extended blog post, this article is designed to capture current
observations I wish to share prior to the 2012 USA Presidential Election. No predictions are made.
Data Sources
With the exception of Sarah Palin for whom I am using a published 6:00 p.m. birth time, all
birth times are rectified by the author. Documentation can be found in articles and books listed on
the authors website. See in particular A Rectification Manual: The American Presidency (2007) and
America is Born: Introducing the Regulus USA National Horoscope (2009).
Introduction
Thesis: The Mundane-Natal Horoscope Connection
Mundane astrology works because planetary configurations in
mundane charts sympathetically trigger actions by individuals with
similar natal configurations. These individuals are lifted up from
the masses to play out events promised by mundane horoscopes.
In my second book, America is Born: Introducing the Regulus USA National Horoscope, I
introduced the above-stated thesis as a solution to what I have observed as a problem in mundane
astrology predictions. Simply stated, there appears a divide between traditional astrologers relying
exclusively on Ingress charts and modern astrologers relying on natal charts of candidates and
national horoscopes as tools to predict the results of political elections. Traditional astrologers are
correct in the overriding importance of mundane horoscopes in the predictive hierarchy of world
affairs. However, failure to link planetary configurations found in mundane horoscopes to specific
individuals or nations has, in my opinion, led to some spectacular failures in astrological prediction.
A similar problem is observed among modern astrologers who focus on natal horoscopes, working
from the ground up within the predictive hierarchy. A favorable natal configuration activated
dynamically means nothing to world affairs if there is no linkage to mundane themes.
In what follows, I focus primarily on the influence of Jupiter-Saturn hard aspects and
eclipses on American Presidential Contests. This paper is by no means comprehensive; as I said at
the outset it is in the form of an extended blogpost. But it should help give those interested in the
2012 USA Presidential Contest some tools to work with which I believe have been overlooked.

The Hamilton-Jefferson Rivalry and the Birth of American Political Parties


Entire careers in the history profession have been devoted to this topic which astrologically
can be solved in several sentences. The Federalist party of Alexander Hamilton, which sought
formation of a strong central government, especially in matters of finance, is signified by Capricorn.
The Democratic-Republican Party of Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, which idealized the
yeoman farmer as the anchor of a decentralized political structure, is signified by Virgo.
Hamiltons horoscope is dominated by a Capricorn stellium with Saturn/Capricorn his
victor.

Jupiter/Virgo-rx in both horoscopes is significant. For Hamilton, Moon applies to


Jupiter/Virgo-rx ruling the 11th of politics placed in the 5th house of elections (my house
assignment). Retrograde planets often manifest as though the planet were placed in the opposite
sign, especially from the time of the first station to opposition (for superior planets) and from the
first station to inferior conjunction (for inferior planets). Accordingly for Hamilton, Moon applying
to Jupiter/Virgo-rx means a REJECTION of the yeoman farmer political ideology of Thomas
Jefferson.
Though Jupiter/Virgo is also retrograde for Jefferson, note Jupiter has past the opposition
to the Sun and will turn direct about two weeks after birth. For Jefferson, Jupiter/Virgo-rx is acting
more like Jupiter/Virgo-direct.
This brief discussion is necessary background for why Jefferson won the USA Presidential
Election of 1800 which was the most significant realignment of political power away from the
Federalists who had dominated American political power since the Revolution of 1776. Why?
Because Jeffersons Jupiter/Virgo was recapitulated by the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction in Virgo. In
fact, Jeffersons Jupiter was within one degree of the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction of 1802.

This is why Jefferson won the election of 1800. Somebody needed to live out the mundane
configuration of the 1802 Jupiter-Saturn horoscope. And that person was Thomas Jefferson.

From a mundane perspective, Roosevelts political tenure is tied to both eclipse and JupiterSaturn cycles. Shortly after his election in November 1932, the North Node made its Aquarius
Ingress on 26-Jul-1933 where it would remain through 11-Feb-1935. A series of eclipses on 21-Aug1933, 14-Feb-1934 and 10-Aug-1934 accentuated FDRs Sun/Aquarius and diminished his secret
enemies with a South Node Leo solar eclipse in the 12th house. Significant features of New Deal
legislation were implemented during this time. By his third election cycle, FDR remained a viable
candidate because his own Jupiter-Saturn conjunction was recapitulated in 1940. Knowing these
mundane connections in advance, one can then turn to natal factors and see that during October
1932 before the November 1932 election, FDR had a primary direction linking Jupiter to the Moon
by conjunction. In my research, the Moon signifies the public when an individual is running for
office. Venus-Moon or Jupiter-Moon dynamic contacts are critical for success in political contests.

Campaign 80 and the Reagan Revolution


Why did Reagan win? Because the 1st Jupiter-Saturn conjunction of 1980 was conjunct his
natal Lot of Fortune placed in the 10th house within one degree.

One can go further and see in Nancy Reagans horoscope (not shown) a recapitulation of the
Sun/Cancer and Saturn/Libra found in the Regulus USA National Horoscope. Sun/Cancer
signifies the USA President and Saturn/Libra is the Suns killing planet; this is one reason why an
assassination attempt was made against Reagan.

The Disputed 2000 Bush/Cheney Gore/Lieberman Presidential Election Contest


The disputed election of 2000 went to the Bush-Cheney ticket not because the election was
stolen, but because the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in Taurus was recapitulated in the horoscope of
Republican VP candidate Dick Cheney. Interestingly, the horoscope of Democratic VP candidate
had a Mars-Saturn conjunction in Taurus but the Jupiter-Saturn in Cheneys horoscope was the
closer recapitulation to mundane cycles.

This is my latest rectification attempt for Cheney which timed his recent heart transplant by

trMars-rx conjunct the ASC degree. [A Geoffrey Cornelius moment for me ;)].

For those mundane astrology students, pay attention to the Egyptian bound placement of
the 1940 and 2000 Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions. The 1940 JSC was placed in the bound of JupiterTaurus; the 2000 JSC, Saturn-Taurus. This is a big deal. FDR natal has Moon separating from
Saturn applying to Jupiter, signifying abundance and deliverance from scarcity recapitulated by the
JSC in the bound of Jupiter/Taurus. Placement of the 2000 JSC in the bound of Saturn-Taurus
suggests Saturn will be the prevalent influence until 2020; e.g., resource scarcity and the destruction
of banks. Big difference. Consider Cheneys function in fulfilling the promise of a Saturn-Taurus
themed 20 years from 2000 to 2020 as an overall framework for mundane predictions. Just sayin
So what about Bush Jr.?

The 2008 Presidential Campaign


If anyone remembers predictions on the 2008 USA Presidential Election made during the
fall of 2007, John McCains campaign was written off and Barrack Obama was not on the map. The
2008 Presidential Election was to be a grudge match between Rudy Giuliani and Hillary Clinton.

Though Giulianis Sun/Gemini recapitulates the Sun/Gemini in the 28-May-2000 JSC,


arguably Giuliani is more of a Leo personality as is Clinton. Here I will switch gears focusing on the
role of eclipses. Critical to the timing of Barack Obamas Presidential victory was placement of the
Nodes along the Leo-Aquarius axis. With the North Node placed in Aquarius, third party idealistic
political movements benefit at the expense of established political machines which were destroyed
by the South Node in Leo.

The 7-Feb-2008 North Node solar eclipse placed in the bound of Jupiter/Aquarius
spotlighted the prospects of Barack Obama after strong showings in Iowa and New Hampshire.
Recall that Hillary Clinton had planned to essentially have the nomination wrapped up by this time
and had no major campaign strategies planned after February.

The 7-Feb-2008 eclipse fell in Obamas 1st house with the bound placement of the eclipse
recapitulated by Jupiter/Aquarius in Obamas 1st which would soon make its return. This eclipse is
why Obama upset Hillary Clinton as the presumptive Democratic Presidential Candidate.

Finding a Balance: Mundane and Natal Astrology in American Presidential Election Contests

At the natal level, in addition to having favorable dynamic activity to ones Moon, sometimes
simply the placement of Jupiter and Saturn can make a big difference. For Hillary Clinton, for most
of 2007 when she was the presumptive nominee, she had a Jupiter return with Jupiter/Sagittarius/5th
highlighted. As soon as Jupiter changed signs to Capricorn, Clinton fell off the radar screen and
John McCains fortunes rocketed. Why the McCain revival? Because the Jupiter/Capricorn transit
highlighted McCains natal Moon. But there was more. The sign of McCains Moon is also
occupied by the North Node which was highlighted as major Fidaria ruler. The Node kicked in.

From a natal perspective, the problem for McCain is that the Moon-North Node Capricorn
conjunction is placed in the 4th house which signifies the opposition party (though it didnt seem to
hurt Jefferson in 1800). Luckily for McCain he didnt win. In traditional mundane astrology, South
Node in the 10th signifies The King is Deposed which means McCain wouldnt have made it
through his first term as the North Node Fidaria period lasts only 3 years before handing over to the
South Node as Fidaria major period ruler for the next 2 years..

Without checking this horoscope carefully (my initial rectification was for a later time, Libra
rising), one need only listen to the tenor of Palins intellectual hostility to identify Mars/Aquarius as
the victor of her horoscope. [For the other prominent example of this planet/sign configuration in
US Presidential politics, see William Crawford and the election of 1924 as the epitome of partisan
politics in American is Born: Introducing the Regulus USA National Horoscope, p. 105 and p. 301].

And why did McCain announce Palin on 29-Aug-2008? Because on 16-Aug-2008, a North
Node Lunar eclipse in the bound of Mars/Aquarius promised the rise of a partisan female to wage
war against intellectuals. Significantly, bound ruler Mars/Virgo is the planet/sign combination
associated with natural resource extraction, an industry for which Alaska is known.

Cast for the moment Mercury goes retrograde at 6:04 p.m. on election day, just like 2000,
Mercurys station promises an undecided election, doubly so as Jupiter/Gemini is also retrograde
and with both planets in detriment in each others sign this should be a real shit show. With
Mercury also the significator of astrology, this appears an impossible prediction exercise.
Note the Jupiter-Mercury opposition is placed in the 1st-7th axis of Romneys horoscope.
Though not a Jupiter-Saturn recapitulation, it may well be that placement of this mundane
configuration on election day in Romneys 1st-7th house axis is why Romney is now the presumed
Republican nominee.

Finding a Balance: Mundane and Natal Astrology in American Presidential Election Contests

See also at the time of the November 2012 election, transiting North Node is placed in the
bound of Saturn/Scorpio, recapitulated by Saturn in Scorpio itself. This configuration aligns with
Romneys natal Moon which is placed in the bound of Saturn/Scorpio. As Saturn/Scorpio signifies
paranoia and the need for security, should the public feel the need for Romneys strong man security
persona at the time of the election, the public may choose Romney.
Also keep in mind that Saturn in all water signs is associated with flooding (remember
Saturn/Cancer Katrina?). [Earth to astrologers: flooding is Saturn in water signs NOT Neptune!
Please dont make me puke!]. For the importance of Saturn/Scorpio in USA political history, look
no further than the horoscope of Prescott Bush (the grandfather) whose Saturn/Scorpio was
recapitulated during Hurricane Connie (11-Aug-1955), Hurricane Diane (17-Aug-1955), and the
subsequent Connecticut flood of 1955 nicknamed Black Friday. As a result of these disasters,
Prescott Bush drafted Public Law 71, (a.k.a. Bush Hurricane Survey Act) which enabled the Army
Corps of Engineers to develop community protection against tidal flooding.
Let me just say this: should we get a large hurricane this October before the election, the
response of the Obama administration will be a critical factor for his election prospects. For any
President, disaster response can be a critical factor so the observation here is simply common sense
no astrology needed. From a mundane astrology perspective, placement of Saturn in Scorpio
amplified by the North Node placed in the bound of Saturn/Scorpio simply means a
hurricane/flood/disaster has to be given a higher than random weight in scenario analysis.
