Wendy, thanks for posting the chart.
Looking at the past, when Obama was elected, the nn was in Aquarius in the 12th progressively moving to conjunct his natal Saturn Jupiter. The bulk of his term the nn has been moving through his 11th house in Capricorn which is ruled by Sag. Both point to his natal Saturn Jupiter. This spring the nn will enter the 10th house, which will emphasize the Jupiter function in his chart.
So based on that observation, it's easy to understand that this soul has been faced with the social reality of this country and the various groups that exist within them, and the distorted patriarchal ideologies that some of these groups represent. This whole process started during the nn's move through the 12th house. This was of course about inspired the collective about the possibility of change. He symbolizes, in the collective, a symbol of radical change.
As the nn moved into the 11th house, he has been faced with the challenge of maintaining or creating some sort of unity, community, or cooperation amongst various political groups. As the nn is still in the 11th house, we see the absurd efforts of some of these groups to undo the social reform he has already established.
The actual issue here has been in Saturn itself. This soul holding a great degree of social responsibility, and the imperative for this soul to make decisions based on a higher standard of ethics. He’s naturally faced with the Saturn challenge of social judgment and criticism.
Intuitively, it’s clear that as the nn moves into the 10th house, during the duration of it’s stay in Sag, the emphasis for this soul will be about speaking and making manifest it’s truth- based on natural law, what is truly ethical and right. This comes back to the Saturn in Cap conj Jupiter in Aquarius. He has witnessed and faced himself immense trauma based on the division of various groups whereby elitist divisions became the basis for racial persecution and things like that (Jupiter in Aquarius in the 12th conj Saturn, that Jupiter squaring Neptune, which is the ruler of Chiron in Pisces conj his sn). This soul is intensely aware of these dynamics and is truly faced with a big responsibility.
So the purpose is to be clear with him self and do what is right. It’s no coincidence that as the campaign for the 2012 elections begin- moving into the 2012 elections themselves, the transiting nodes will be on his natal mc/ic and then squaring his own natal nodes
And it is those ongoing evolutionary needs of the Soul, it's future, that always interfaces and impacts on the Soul's past where that past is continuously experienced by the transiting S.Node. It is our past, it's actual reality, that conditions how we perceive the present moment, and how that current moment is evolving into the future.
I’m having difficulty getting started with that. It isn’t clicking, do you think you can provide some more guidance for how to approach this in Obama’s chart?
