President Barack Obama Second Term Astrology
President Barack Obama scored himself a second term in the White House, nabbing nearly all of the key battleground
states, as predict by me 2 years ago on Nov 26th, 2010. I also predicted during Republican Primaries in March 2012
that Mitt Romney will be the Republican candidate, but cannot win the 2012 Presidential Election as he is in Sun
main period and Mercury sub period. These planets although they are in his 10th house but they are in bad nakshatras
connected with the 8th, 12th, and Badhaka houses in his chart, could not give him victory in the 2012 Presidential
Elections. But rather gave him loss in the elections, frustration and financial loss as well.  Many astrologers, both
Western and Vedic, were saying that Sun and Mercury are very strong in the 10th house and some even predicted
victory for Romney in the 2012 Presidential Elections. It is unbelievable how some astrologers waited until
November 6th, to make predictions hours before the election results came out, while others made election
predictions in the final three months before the election date, when you do not even need astrology to know who is
going to win the Presidential Elections. Predictions were made more or less based on the polling data, and the gut
feeling, rather than any correct astrology analysis. Most astrologers, Psychics were of the opinion that this will be a
close election, Mercury going retrograde on the day of the election, complete mess. The election results may be in
jeopardy, and delayed, some even predicted victory for Mitt Romney. But look what happened, President Obama
won by a big margin and it was an easy victory for him as I predicted 2 years ago with detailed astrology analysis,
when I did not even know who his opponent is going to be in 2012 Presidential Election.

As the excitement of victory starts to fade, questions arise over what type of challenges President Obama will be
dealing with, in the weeks ahead. The first test will come quickly. Before he is sworn in to office for his second term,
Obama has to deal with the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts and the looming fiscal cliff. Shortly thereafter, he will
be asking Congress to increase the debt ceiling once more. The House of Representatives remains in Republican
control. And while Sen. Harry Reid will still be the majority leader, he won't have anywhere close to a filibuster-proof
majority. So Obama will have to build coalitions to get legislation passed. This is where John Boehner, the current
Speaker of the United States House of Representatives comes into picture. In order to make accurate predictions
about the fiscal cliff I need John Boehner’s birth time from his birth certificate, which we don’t know at this time.

Before July 2012 President Obama’s approval ratings were down because Rahu and Ketu were transiting Scorpio and
Taurus signs, afflicting the 7th house lord Moon’s natal position in Taurus sign in President Obama’s astrology chart.
Moon, the 7th house lord represents the people of the United States who voted for him. When Rahu /Ketu were
transiting the moon sign Taurus, the support from people was lukewarm. But as Rahu and Ketu moved away from
the natal Moon, and Jupiter entered moon sign Taurus in May 2012, gradually the approval ratings went up as benefic
planet Jupiter was transiting the natal Moon, the 7th house lord in the President Obama’s astrology chart.

Saturn the current Mahadasha lord in President Obama’s astrology chart, rules the 1st house (self), 2nd house
(money, financial growth), and is closely aspected by 6th house lord Mercury , should help him control the spending,
increase revenue, balance the budget of the United States. In President Obama’s first term he was in 12th house lord
Jupiter (expenditures, money going out) period when the national debt of US rose to 16 Trillion dollars. President
GW Bush was in his 12th house lord Mercury’s period most of his time in his second term. Then President Barack
Obama was in his 12th house lord Jupiter’s period in his first term. Finally we have a President ( President Barack
Obama) who is not in 12th house lord’s mahadasha, but is in 1st and 2nd house lord Saturn’s period in his second
term, should help him take some necessary steps to control the spending, increase the revenue, and balance the
budget of the United States. But it will still not be easy as 2nd house lord Saturn in President Obama’s chart is in
12th house in conjunction with the 12th house lord Jupiter.

Saturn the Mahadasha and the ascendant lord in President Obama’s chart goes retrograde in Libra at 17 degrees 34
minutes on Feb 18th, 2013. Saturn stays retrograde until July 7th, 2013. Then it goes direct at 10 degrees 51 minutes
in Libra. When a planet is retrograde it sometimes keeps you in a limbo state, and loses its power to deliver good
results. President Obama is in Saturn Mahadasha and United States is in Mars Mahadasha during President Obama’s
second term. So whenever Saturn and Mars will aspect each other and will be in conjunction with each other or
afflicted by Rahu or Ketu, it will not be a very good time for President Obama and the United States. President
Obama will be dealing with some challenging situations during such transits. Saturn and Mars will aspect each other
from April 12th, 2013 to May 22nd, 2013 as Mars will transit Aries sign and Saturn will be in Libra sign. Saturn and
Mars will again aspect each other from August 22nd, 2013 to Oct 5th, 2013. Mars will be in its debilitated sign
Cancer, and Saturn will be in its exalted sign Libra. During this time there will be Saturn and Rahu conjunction that
will take place in Libra sign in the month of Sept, 2013 on Sept 21st, 2013 which is not good for President Obama,
but the saving grace during this time is that they both are aspected by transit Jupiter from Gemini. Saturn and Mars
will be in conjunction with each other in Libra sign; the exact conjunction will take place in end of August 2014.

The best period in President Obama’s second term will be from May 30th, 2013 to November 1st, 2014, before
Saturn enters Scorpio sign.  Jupiter will transit through the Gemini sign from May 30th, 2013 to June 18th, 2014.
During this time Jupiter will aspect transit Saturn and transit Rahu in Libra. This will be the best period in President
Obama’s 2nd term when the Mahadasha lord and the ascendant lord Saturn's transit position in Libra will be aspected
by transit Jupiter from Gemini. President Obama’s popularity will be very high during this time, and Obama will
solve many domestic and international problems. This will be the golden period in President Obama’s second term.
The US astrology chart also indicates favorable time during this time as Jupiter in Gemini will be transiting the 7th
house in the US chart. Jupiter will also transit the natal position of four planets Venus, Jupiter, Sun and also Mars the
current Mahadasha lord. The US economy will be doing much better.

Saturn in Scorpio will be transiting the Badhaka planet Mars sign, will be difficult. Saturn from Scorpio will aspect the
7th house lord Moon’s natal position in 2015 / 2016. This will be a challenging time in the second term, winning
public support will be difficult during this time, and the opposition / enemies will be strong. Saturn will aspect the
7th house lord natal moon three times between November 2014 and December 2015, will be a sensitive time. The
time until July 2015 still may be fine as transit Jupiter from Cancer sign will aspect the natal Saturn in Capricorn and
transit Saturn in Scorpio also. But Jupiter leaves Cancer sign and enters Leo sign in July 2015. The Saturn / Mercury
period also starts around this time in July 2015. In Saturn / Mercury period (July 2015 to April 2018) the President
Obama’s health may suffer as the sub period lord Mercury rules the 6th house of health issues, and aspects the
ascendant lord Saturn in the natal chart. Also main period lord and the ascendant lord Saturn will be transiting
Jyestha nakshatra ruled by 6th house lord Mercury in Scorpio sign in 2016 and 2017 is not good for maintaining good
health during this time.

Finally let us hope President Barack Obama will take the country forward in his second term as promised.

UPDATE:
In my last two astrology articles on President Barack Obama, I had indicated that Saturn’s transit through Scorpio,
especially after July 2015, will bring some challenging time for Obama Administration. There are all indications from
President Obama’s astrology chart that US will be heading towards some kind of conflict or war between July 2015
and Jan 2017. The 7th house in President Obama’s astrology chart represents his friends as well as his enemies. The
lord of 7th house Moon in President Obama’s astrology chart is at 10 degrees in Taurus Sign. When transit Saturn
enters Scorpio on November 2nd this year, it will be aspecting the natal position of Moon in Taurus sign until Jan
2017. Jupiter is entering Cancer sign on June 18th this year, and will stay in Cancer Sign until July 2015, and will
aspect transit Saturn in Scorpio. This is a very favorable transit for President Obama. There is some hope for
diplomacy to work until July 2015, because transit Saturn in Scorpio will be aspected by Jupiter. But after July 2015
the chances of US involvement in some kind of war or conflict are very high. I have seen that afflictions to the 7th
house lord in the astrology chart of a CEO of a company brings some kind of labor problems, and afflictions to the
7th house lord of the President of a country can bring some conflict or war. President GW Bush was in his 7th house
lord Saturn’s mahadasha and Rahu Bhukti, when US went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan. Transit Saturn, the 7th
house lord in President Bush’s astrology chart was afflicted by its conjunction with Rahu in Taurus sign most of the
time in 2002

The transits of slow moving planets Saturn, Jupiter, Rahu and Ketu are always very important, because they stay in
each sign and each nakshatra for a long time. Jupiter the planet of diplomacy, will be afflicted by Saturn’s aspect
between July 2015 and August 2016 as Jupiter will be transiting Leo sign and Saturn will be in Scorpio, aspecting
transit Jupiter for long time. Then Rahu will enter Leo in Jan 2016, and Jupiter and Rahu will be together and they
both will be aspected by Saturn from Scorpio. Vice President Biden is in Jupiter mahadasha and Jupiter / Rahu
conjunction is not good for him as well.

Lots of people have requested me to make predictions about 2016 US Presidential elections. I would say a lot
depends on how the Obama Administration will handle the end of President Obama’s second term. The future of
Democratic Party will be in the hands of Obama Administration. If some mistakes are made during this time, then it
can give an opportunity to the Republican Party to win the White House in 2016. A lot depends on the astrology
charts of candidates from both parties. A detailed analysis will be posted when we know the candidate names from
both parties.
