His charts astrodyne report

His dominant planet-key decanate profile

The Sun is in the second decanate of Leo so the special feature of his I will individuality is his talent for reformation.

He recognizes the shortcomings in the current political system and armed with the courage of his convictions he attacks those who use their intellectual cleverness to suppress truth and foster ignorance. But, as an influential person, he needs to make sure that he presents facts and not erroneous notions.

The Moon – his dominant planet – is in the first decanate of Gemini so his I think mentality is specified by intuition. This is his dominant decanate.

His natural field of endeavor is the mental plane.

His mind assimilates all he contacts and can view the whole problem in every detail – perceiving the proper relation of each part to the whole. And his deductions – as intuition – come straight from his not-conscious soul-mind.  

The ascendant is in the second decanate of Aquarius so his I know personality is defined by inspiration – and he inspires.

He also has ‘unlimited resourcefulness in imaginative creation’ and it’s through this faculty, and his ability to dramatize and present his conceptions in a most convincing manner, that he does good.

Mercury is in the first decanate of Leo so his I will mental activity and style of communication is specified by rulership and a capacity to exercise authority.  But there’s a warning: His powerful love nature needs to avoid extreme expression.

The Moon – his dominant planet – puts him touch with the wants and needs of the ordinary folk and the high-powered Mercury signs for intellectual talent; and with Mercury sextile Moon he had the opportunity to develop his intelligence.

His story

Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States – and the first African American to hold the office.

After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1991 he worked as a community organizer and civil rights attorney in Chicago; and then as a Senior Lecturer in Constitutional Law at University of Chicago Law School.

In 1995 his autobiography Dreams from my Father was a bestseller.

In 1996 he was elected to the Illinois State Senate and on November 2, 2004, he was elected to the U.S. Senate.

As an Illinois state senator, he worked passionately for ethics reforms and criminal justice reform; and as a U.S. Senator, his areas of special legislative interest were in support for working families (Moon), public education, health care, economic growth and jobs creation, and ending the Iraq War (house 7).

Obama first rose to national prominence at the 2004 Democratic National Convention when he delivered an inspiring keynote speech.

In 2004, he also signed a $1.9 million deal to author 3 books.

The first, The Audacity of Hope, discussed his political convictions.

On February 10, 2007, he declared his candidacy for president; and on June 3, 2008, he accumulated enough Democratic convention delegates’ votes to become the presumptive party nominee for the presidential race.

On November 4, 2008 Obama decisively won the presidency.

On December 10, 2009 he was awarded the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize.

On March 21, 2010, his health reform legislation – the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act – was passed into law. It was a major social reformation.

On December 22, 2010, he signed the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010 which fulfilled a 2008 campaign promise.

In March 2011 he authorized a ‘surgical raid’, on a compound where Osama Bin Laden was living in Pakistan; and on May 1, 2011, an operation took place that resulted in the shooting death of the founder of al-Qaeda.

On November 6, 2012 Barack Obama was reelected U.S. President.

During his second term he substantially escalated the use of drone strikes against suspected militants and terrorists associated with al-Qaeda and the Taliban; and in the 2016, the last year of his presidency, the US dropped 26,171 bombs on seven different countries.

At the end of his presidency he left about 8,400 US troops in Afghanistan, 5,262 in Iraq, 503 in Syria, 133 in Pakistan, 106 in Somalia, 7 in Yemen, and 2 in Libya.

(Mars the planet of bombs and war is in house 7 [enemies and war] of his chart.)

In January 2017 Obama left office with a 60% approval rating.

On March 2, 2017, he was awarded the annual Profile in Courage Award by the John F Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum for ‘his enduring commitment to democratic ideals and elevating the standard of political courage’.

Barack Obama is married to Michelle and they have two daughters – Malia Ann and Natasha.
