horoscope that most contemporary astrologers are using for
President George W. Bushsee
1is wrong. No wonder most of those same astrologers
could not predict that he would win the election. It shows
Leo rising. Leo rising people are big, have barrel chests,
and large bones. They have rectangular faces and
personalities that focus on being the center of attention.
Picture Winston Churchill and Pavarotti, the opera star.
They represent Leo rising. George W. Bush does not. He has
the more ovate, tapered head of a Cancer rising individual,
with greatest breadth between his temples. Cancer is the
cardinal water sign that is at ease with power, but not
confrontations. Moreover, he is much shorter than the
average Leo male and has a milder demeanor.
As clearly pointed out in The Perfect Horoscope, no
horoscope based upon a physical (birth certificate) time has
ever been verified. This is the broad-scale mistake most
astrologers are makingto assume that a horoscope and a
babys first breath are synonymous. They are not. The only
horoscopes that can be verified must be based upon the
calculation of an earlier spiritual birth moment. That
horoscope must then be tested for functionality. Verified
horoscopes become a revelation, because all elements are
exactly as the soul intended for this period on earth. All
day-for-a-year progressions pinpoint the peak days of urges
that set off events.
President George W. Bushs verified horoscope is shown in
2. Moon, the ruler of his Cancer Ascendant is
in Libra and the fourth house, conjunct Jupiter. No wonder
his road to the presidency has been like father, like
son. However, the real strength of this verified
horoscope is in the so called out of bounds planets.
Those are the planets whose declinations exceed the angle of
the obliquity of the ecliptic. Hence, they are slowing down
and becoming much more powerful. George W. Bush has his Sun,
Uranus and Pluto in this category. In addition, these three
planets were making contacts with no less than five planets
and angles in the July 4, 1776, Declaration of Independence
horoscope. This is aside from the fact that the two Suns are
conjunct each other. The contacts in Al Gores verified
horoscope were simply not as strong.
George W. Bush won the presidential election when his
progressed Midheaven was parallel first house Saturn within
00° 00.8, progressed Uranus was conjunct Venus
within 00° 00.9, and progressed Uranus and Pluto
were parallel each other within 00° 02.7.
Furthermore, all of the progressed parallels on Election Day
were of the Northern type, and those are outgoing.
I challenge any astrologer to show meaningful progressions,
transits, or any other true astrological phenomena, for the
Leo rising horoscope that can match the meaningfulness and
precision of those just given. Since the 26° Cancer
18.8 rising horoscope has been verified, it will continue
to pinpoint all other major events in George W. Bushs
For example, he was inaugurated President of the United
States when progressed Mercury was conjunct natal Venus and
sextile progressed Uranus. Mercury indicated the important
words spoken, Venus changed his income, and eleventh house
Uranus initiated action to put his tax reduction plans into
effect. These two aspects peaked within two days of each
other. Incidentally, Venus is also co-ruler of his eleventh
house, and that places emphasis on plans, especially those
incorporating a female element.
It should be noted that the May defection of Senator James
M. Jefford from the Republican Party had an impact on the
legislature of the United States, but not on the president
as a person. Therefore, there were no major progressed
aspects in President George W. Bushs horoscope at that
time. Only a lunar trine to Uranus arrived on May 11.
The most important steppingstones coming up in 2001 are
progressed Uranus sextile natal Venus on July 6 (accompanied
by a progressed semisquare of Mercury to progressed
Neptune), progressed Mercury sextile natal Venus on November
1, and progressed Sun contraparallel natal Mars on December
23. Slow moving progressed Uranus will still be sextile
natal Venus within 00° 00.7 on the same day.
Remember that these progressed aspects signify urges or
influences. The actual events will manifest from decisions
made at those times.
