Christopher Hitchens wrote a piece for The Atlantic on President Obama entitled “Cool Cat,” where he says that he thinks it is “rather nice to have a feline for president.” Jacob Weisberg from Slate Magazine, while quoting from Hitchens, adds that “The president is catlike also in his lack of evident affection for the people who take care of him.” His jokes at the White House Correspondents' Dinner about Hillary Clinton being bitter loser, Larry Summers' woman issues, and training his dog not to pee on Tim Geithner bordered to many with cruelty. “Obama's jokes about himself were about how great everyone thinks he is” He writes. Now, come on! Catlike? Feline? Of course he is! Obama is a Leo, and anyone who knows anything about zoology will attest that Lions are the epitome of the biological family called Feline also known as Felidae. As for the President being aloof, well, that has nothing to do with him being a cat; actually his emotional detachments is due to the fact that his rising sign is Aquarius, the sign most criticized for being impersonal, detached and aloof. Furthermore, Aquarius, ruled by the Tarot Card “The Star” is also associated with extra terrestrials and aliens, it is not surprising to hear the President acknowledge that he did watch the new Star Trek because, in his own words, “everyone was saying I was Spock…”


I rest my case…lol

That being said, the fact that Obama think he is great and manages to persuade the vast majority of the inhabitants of the planet that its true, is very much associated with his Feline, catlike, Leo qualities.

President Obama’s Moon is in Gemini. Moon is associated with one’s ancestry, home and family and if you take a look at the Tarot Card for Gemini – the Lovers:

You will see depicted in the Thoth deck, a black man and a white woman getting married. (you can even see the feline in the card…) President Obama is the product of an interracial marriage, which by the way, in the time when his parents married was forbidden by law in 22 states of the Union. This means that President Obama was born as a bastard in the following states: Arizona, Florida, Arkansas, Indiana, Maryland, Utah, Nebraska, Wyoming, Georgia, Delaware, Alabama, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Notrh Carolina, South Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia. Maybe if we update the Tarot and have the Lovers card show a man marrying another man or two women exchanging vows, it will make these marriages leagl worldwide…

Considering the President’s chart, I would be less worried about his catwalk or aloofness, with some self-help books he would be able to take care of it, what concerns me most is the fact that this Fall, Saturn, the Lord of Karma, and the Grand Auditor is moving into the President’s Eighth House of Death, Transformation and Sexuality. This cycle happens every 29-30 years and will officially take place from the end of September 2009 until October 2012, one month shy of the next elections and two months prior to the dreaded and misunderstood end of the Mayan Calendar. In the last cycle of Saturn in the President’s house of Death, Obama’s biological father died in a car accident. Without sounding paranoiac (albeit the house of death is also the house of paranoia) I would vamp up Obama’s security and make sure he does not risk himself by being over confident and catwalk his way to a dangerous situation. Cats do have nine lives but it might not help with Saturn in the House of Death. That being said, most of the time, Saturn in the Eighth house constitutes a profound need for transformation. Between 1980-1982, the last time Saturn was in the house of Death and Sexuality and Secrets, Obama was studying at the Occidental School in Los Angeles. In most of his biographies he hardly mention that period of time. In his 1995 autobiography, "Dreams From My Father," Obama writes how he was accepted into "several respectable" instituations but chose Occidental "mainly because I'd met a girl from Brentwood while she was vacationing in Hawaii." I guess that is why the Eights house is also called the house of Sexuality and Intimacy.

In an e-mailed response to questions from The Times regarding his time at Occidental, Obama said he had "fond memories." "It's a wonderful, small liberal arts college. The professors were diverse and inspiring. I ended up making some lifelong friendships there, and those first two years really helped me grow up."

We will have to wait and see what happens to the leader of the free world when Saturn moves into his house of transformation. It is also the house of magic, so who knows, maybe Obama, the wizard, will manifest, or maybe Obama will have to decide once and for all what is his stand in relation to subject that the Eight house rules such as Homosexuality, abortion, torture, taxes, and many many investigations…

Right before Saturn will move into the President’s House of Death, it will conjunct Mars, the God of War. This is happening at the end of August, beginning of September. The drama might unfold as a big fight, attack or public scrutiny on some of his policies, most likely around service, work, and healthcare since his Mars is in Virgo.

Have a great Mercury Retrograde…
