Barack Obama's Birth Chart

Barack Obama's Birth Chart Analysis

The 1st House


The 1st House describes you, your self-expression and vitality. It is your physical appearance and the way others see you and interact with you. The 1st House cusp is, in most cases, the Ascendant or Rising Sign of your chart and indicates your primary motivation in life. The house placement of your 1st House ruler, or almuten, shows the areas of life that are of primary importance to you. Also, planets in your 1st House influence how you present yourself to the world.


 1st House Cusp in Aquarius

Your primary motivation in life is for freedom of action and movement. You have a modern, contemporary and progressive outlook on life with an enthusiasm for the new, the unusual and the innovative. You are an original personality yet, at times, can be unconventional, eccentric or unpredictable. Others are attracted to you because you're friendly and interested in people. You are accustomed to a lot of change and variety in your day-to-day life.


The outcome of this house is determined by the placement of its ruler.



1st House Cusp Ruler, Saturn, in 12th House

You realise your primary motivation in life by working quietly behind-the-scenes. You are a force to be reckoned with in a subtle way; because you keep your own counsel and others never know exactly what you're capable of. This doesn't mean you are threatening, just private and self-contained. You enjoy your own company and seclusion.


 Jupiter in 1st House

You are the eternal optimist who has the ability to light up any room. You are positive, outgoing and enthusiastic. People warm to you, as you ooze self-confidence, an easy manner and a hearty sense of humour. You have leadership capabilities, combined with the ability to be popular and well-liked. You are interested in philosophical subjects, religious questions and education. You can be prone to over-indulgence, wastefulness, extravagance and an exaggerated sense of self-importance. And, you may need to watch your diet, as there can be a tendency to put on weight.




Jupiter in Aquarius

You have an impartial and unprejudiced nature, with a strong social sense. You have humanitarian tendencies and can be tolerant and accepting of the viewpoints of others, even if you don't agree with them. Equally, you can be provocative and revolutionary in your thinking, especially in regard to social or humanitarian issues.




Aspects to Jupiter



Jupiter Trine Moon (2z30' S)

You are naturally generous, open-minded and kind-hearted. Your emotional honesty and good humour make you popular and appreciated by others. You are socially aware and always ready to help other people. You are interested in philosophy and religion, and, if other factors in your chart support it, you will have the opportunity to travel. You know how to enjoy yourself and are fond of sociable and pleasurable activities. Relations with women are usually positive.



Jupiter Opposition Mercury (1z28' S)

You are basically an optimist at heart and usually express a positive and confident outlook on life. In your desire to broaden your knowledge, you will most likely travel, correspond with people in other countries and possibly study or have business arrangements overseas. You may be well read and erudite. Certainly, you appreciate the value and benefits of a sound education. Possibly, you may have a tendency to be absent-minded, or inclined to overlook important details. Poor judgement or sloppy thinking can lead to problems with investments, contracts or legal documents. At times, you may be intellectually arrogant, preachy or prone to exaggeration.



Jupiter Quincunx Venus (0z56' S)

Even the 'difficult' aspects, such as this, between Venus and Jupiter are not as challenging as other planetary combinations. They are, after all, the so-called benefic planets and they tend to work well together. At worst, there can be a tendency towards negligence and laziness, or over-indulgence and wastefulness. To some extent, life's advantages can come too easily to you, resulting in a tendency to take things for granted. Still, this is a very desirable aspect to have in your chart because it brings social and worldly benefits and facilitates successful relationships with others. Romantic encounters are generally positive and happy, and artistic ability is evident. Positively, you have a pleasant and affectionate nature, which warms people to you easily. Gregarious and optimistic, you embrace life wholeheartedly and fully. You have an attractive personality and a kind-hearted manner about you, with the ability to gain popularity or favouritism from others.



Jupiter Conjunct Saturn (5z32' A)

In general, your life alternates between periods of optimism and pessimism and periods of financial abundance and financial hardship. It can sometimes seem that everything good that happens to you comes at a cost. Your challenge is to find the middle path between enjoying life and keeping it real. Occasionally, you experience feelings of dissatisfaction with your lot in life; however this can serve as a motivation to improve your situation. All of your personal successes - academic, financial or emotional - are hard won and gained through industry, perseverance and self-discipline. You have a good head for business because you understand the cycles of expansion and consolidation. Your philosophical outlooks tend to be orthodox and conservative.



Jupiter Square Neptune (7z45' S)

You are a selfless and compassionate person who is receptive to the needs of others. Spiritual subjects interest you greatly and it is possible that you possess psychic ability. You have a great amount of imagination and inspiration, which you may effectively channel into creative expressions such as music, theatre, dance, film or painting. You are essentially an idealist who sometimes sees the world through rose-tinted glasses. As a result, you can perceive situations to be quite different to what they are in reality. On a mundane level, you may have an enthusiasm for gambling and risk-taking; however it is impossible to tell if your speculations will succeed or fail - so you need to take care, especially if you cannot afford to lose.



 Jupiter Sextile Midheaven (0z53' S)

This aspect can help you to rise to high positions in your career. You have the desire to do well in life and to advance personally and professionally. Others may seek you out for your advice and those in power tend to favour you. You may do well in areas related to spirituality, publishing, travel, law or education.



Ascendant in Aquarius

Your primary motivation in life is to have freedom of action and movement. You have a modern, contemporary and progressive outlook on life, with an enthusiasm for the new, the unusual and the innovative. You have an individual and original personality yet, at times, can be unconventional, eccentric or unpredictable. Others are attracted to you because you are friendly and interested in people. You are accustomed to a lot of change and variety in your day-to-day life.




Aspects to Ascendant


Ascendant Quincunx Mars (0z26' A)

A strong character, you express an assertive and, occasionally, forceful personality towards others in the environment. Your manner is direct and frank. You are ambitious for recognition and achieve successes through your own efforts and self-motivation. You are a good organiser and like being in charge of situations. Giving orders or instructions to others comes naturally to you. You face life's battles head-on and are rarely daunted by much at all. Negatively, you can be pushy, argumentative and prepared to resort to bullying tactics to get your own way. Also, a tendency to rush into things without considering the consequences can place you in awkward situations. Patience isn't one of your strongest traits.



Ascendant Opposition Uranus (3z07' A)

You are an original personality and delight in your uniqueness and individuality. You insist on having the freedom to do as you wish, even if it unsettles others. You are a non-conformist and, in all likelihood, ahead of your time. To some people, you are an exciting person to be around; to others you are just too unconventional for them to understand. You need to take care not to come across as too eccentric or weird, because you may isolate yourself socially. You are intrinsically restless and will tend to have many changes of environment throughout the course of your life. You may be a technological whiz.



Ascendant Opposition Moon's North Node (5z09' A)

You have difficulties getting along well with others in your personal environment caused by disruptive or unsociable behaviour.



Moon's South Node in 1st House

The 2nd House


The 2nd House is associated with personal assets and financial affairs. It governs all moveable possessions and wealth.



2nd House Cusp in Pisces

Managing money is not your strongest attribute. One day it's there the next it seems to have magically disappeared. You are inclined to be somewhat carefree or lackadaisical with your possessions. You need to take care with investments and to be especially careful with whom you entrust your financial affairs, as your trusting nature may expose you to con artists.


The outcome of this house is determined by the placement of its ruler.



2nd House Cusp Ruler, Jupiter, in 1st House

Your income is directly proportional to your self-motivation and the personal effort you put into creating wealth. Your physical condition and general health are determining factors in your ability to earn a living. The more vital and physically fit you are, the more drive you have to acquire possessions and money. You may tend to spend money on yourself.



The 3rd House


The 3rd House is associated with your immediate environment. It rules your neighbours and your relationship with your relatives, especially your siblings and cousins. It also rules all forms of communication. It describes your early education and ability to learn.



 3rd House Cusp in Aries

You are an active communicator equipped with the gift of repartee and the ability to supply a ready answer when challenged. You have debating skills, yet you may also have a biting tongue and an abrupt manner. Lively discussions or arguments with your siblings and neighbours are part of your daily life.


The outcome of this house is determined by the placement of its ruler.



3rd House Cusp Ruler, Mars, in 8th House

Your mind is rarely involved with light and frivolous matters; instead you are more likely to ponder life's deeper issues. You may occasionally reflect upon ideas that others consider taboo.



The 4th House


The 4th House is associated with home and family matters. It describes your parents - especially the father - and your relationship with them. It gives information on your family history or ancestry and the nature of your later life. Real estate and property belong here.

Your home life is full of activity; ranging from constant busyness to family battles. Relations with your parents are lively and occasionally strained.

The outcome of this house is determined by the placement of its ruler.



4th House Cusp Ruler, Mars, in 8th House

You and your family may pool financial resources, or own land or a business together. Difficulties in life may be caused through the deeds or attitudes of the father. You may pursue an interest in occult sciences in later life, if not earlier.

You also need to feel a sense of security regarding your work, as uncertainty surrounding a job can affect your health and general feeling of well-being.

Sun in Leo

You are creative in the broadest sense of the word and motivated by the urge to make your mark on the world and to gain a measure of personal recognition and power. You have a desire to be at the centre of attention or in the limelight. At your best, you are self-assured, self-confident, out-going, sociable and companionable, but also you can be proud, status-conscious, arrogant and susceptible to flattery. You exude authority and are a natural leader and organiser who can make decisions. You are protective of others and generous by nature.




Aspects to Sun



Sun Square Neptune (3z57' S)

You are highly sensitive and impressionable. You have a tendency to be easily swayed by others; are prone to seducing influences and susceptible to intoxicants and stimulants. While you may be inspired with the best of intentions and ideals, you often lack the power and motivation to bring them to realisation. Equally, you may be prone to recycling periods of low vitality and physical weakness. There is a susceptibility to self-deception and seducing influences that can lead to scandals. Your father may be an unknown quantity to you, or even absent. Positively, you may have spiritual inclinations, coupled with a fascination for metaphysical or esoteric subjects.

Aspects to Uranus



Uranus Quincunx Saturn (0z04' A)

You often feel tense and churned up inside, as you struggle between the urge to conform and the urge to assert your individuality. One side of you wants to be like everyone else while the other side cannot bear the thought of it. Also, when you feel the pressure for change building up within you, don't suppress it because you may cause yourself stress and even possible physical injury. For your own peace of mind you need to find a balance between these conflicting urges. You are quite rebellious and will buck against anyone or anything that restricts your freedom.



Uranus Conjunct Moon's North Node (2z02' A)

You either prefer the company of unusual and original people, or you come across to others as unconventional and eccentric yourself. You enjoy change and variety with regard to your associations and can be inclined to make and break contacts suddenly and unexpectedly. When meeting new people, you tend to assess their character intuitively and quickly. You may associate with people who expose you to unsettling or disruptive experiences.



Uranus Square Midheaven (6z29' S)

You march to the beat of your own drum. Others see you as a unique personality who is strongly individualistic. You assert your right to be independent and original. Professionally, you will choose a career that is unusual in some way, or you could be attracted to modern occupations, involving the latest technological or scientific advancements. One word of warning, this aspect can sometimes cause reckless behaviour, which can lead to sudden reversals of fortune or falls from grace. Your domestic circumstances are often changeable or unstable.




Moon's North Node in 7th House

Your karmic lesson in life is to experience and learn about relationships. Partnerships, both personal and professional, can feature strongly in your life.




Moon's North Node in Leo

You demonstrate self-confidence and self-assuredness in the company of other people. You often assume the role of leader and organiser in group activities. Other people will look to you for guidance. You are socially active, fun-loving, entertaining, and like sharing in festive events and social occasions.




Aspects to Moon's North Node



Moon's North Node Quincunx Saturn (1z58' S)

It is very likely that you'll establish unions with others of a wide-age difference to yourself. Older people play an important role in your early life. You are attracted to them for their knowledge, wisdom and experience. You have a sense of responsibility towards others, coupled with strong feelings of loyalty and duty. At times, other people's actions can sadden or depress you. And, in some cases, there are people who can oppress you and make you feel bitter and frustrated.



Moon's North Node Square Midheaven (4z27' S)

The best friends you can make in life are with people who share the same aims and aspirations as you do. You have a strong need to be with people who understand and appreciate you at an inner level. You may be quite status conscious. Family ties are significant. There can be problems with the career.




The 8th House


The 8th House is the house of shared resources, other people's money, including the partner's. It is associated with wills, inheritances, death and loss.




8th House Cusp in Virgo

A partner may be very practical and competent when it comes to handling money. Ever efficient, you are likely to have your taxes well managed. You could have a scientific interest in occult matters, and may study, write or lecture on them.


The outcome of this house is determined by the placement of its ruler.



8th House Cusp Ruler, Mercury, in 7th House

You may have a talent for handling the financial affairs of your partner or other people. Joint finances and resources can be tricky within partnerships and lead to arguments and disputes. You may share an interest in the occult with a partner.




Pluto in 8th House

You have a deep interest in the occult and esoteric mysteries. You may develop a fascination for subjects that investigate the questions of life, such as reincarnation, life after death, karma, yoga and astrology. Under certain conditions, you could experience problems with others' money, taxes or inheritances.




Pluto in Virgo

You are a member of a generation who experiences extraordinary pressures and upheavals in the areas of employment and health. You are exposed to transformations within the work and health sectors that occur outside of your own control. You witness breakthroughs in medical science, coupled with a rise of interest in alternative therapies.




Aspects to Pluto



Pluto Sextile Neptune (1z38' A)

Neptune and Pluto are the solar system's slowest moving planets; consequently aspects between them last for a great number of years and their effects are less personal than collective. Since 1940 and continuing until about 2040 they are in sextile aspect to each other. The major effect of this is to accentuate spiritual awareness and development en masse. You are part of a generation that is intent on exploring and refining the inner aspect of life and consciousness itself. You will be aware of a universal interest in metaphysical subjects, clairvoyance and psychical research.



Pluto Square Midheaven (5z14' A)

You have the capability to make your mark on the world and become a person of some significance or importance. If other factors in your horoscope support it, you have the potential to gain a measure of fame. At some point in your life, there is a strong possibility you will undergo a radical change in direction that may surprise both yourself and others. You have the capability to be a leader or a public figure; however you need to take care not to abuse your authority, as it is likely to annoy others. If you misuse your power, your past may catch up with you and ruin your reputation. There can be power struggles in the home or domestic upheavals.




Mars in 8th House

You have strong survival instincts and react quickly to threatening or risky situations. You can act recklessly and defiantly, yet you instinctively know how far to take things. Facing perilous situations can give you an adrenalin rush. You are prone to arguments over money and shared resources with personal or professional partners. Problems and disputes may arise over legacies and inheritances. An interest in the occult and metaphysical subjects is likely.




Mars in Virgo

Your goals and actions are usually practical and useful. You are economical in the expenditure of energy. Precise and exacting, you are motivated to do the best you can at any task. You approach projects in a logical and methodical manner. You are intolerant of sloppiness and untidiness in the work environment. You tend to get angry or irritable when routines are upset or things don't go to plan. Conflicts are possible with work colleagues.




Aspects to Mars



Mars Trine Saturn (2z45' A)

You are a hard worker and have the power to realise your objectives through perseverance and determination. You are good at physical and manual work, or activities requiring self-discipline and stamina such as endurance sports. In stressful or dangerous situations, you can be counted on to keep a clear and cool head.



Mars SemiSquare Neptune (1z02' A)

The main challenge of this aspect is to discover how to channel your energies most effectively. This is difficult because Neptune tends to undermine Mars' ability to act by dissipating its power, or causing it to express itself in a chaotic or immoral way. Physically, the body's defences can be weakened causing a susceptibility to infections and viruses. On a more uplifting note, this aspect is often found in the charts of spiritual aspirants who direct their energies towards the higher good. For creative people, this pairing can produce talents in music, visual arts, theatre, film, photography or fashion. Physical exercise such as swimming, water sports, Yoga or Tai Chi may appeal to you.




The 9th House


The 9th House is associated with philosophy, wisdom, spirituality, religion, higher education and travel. It also rules those you seek for advice such as lawyers, priests and astrologers.




9th House Cusp in Libra

You are interested in broadening your horizons through travel or higher education; preferably in the company of others. Naturally sociable, you like to bounce ideas off people and discover new things together. You have a strong sense of justice and, if faced with legal concerns, will only want what is fair. Important teachers and advisers tend to be socially aware and approachable, but can also be vain and conceited.


The outcome of this house is determined by the placement of its ruler.



9th House Cusp Ruler, Venus, in 6th House

The better educated you are, the better your job opportunities. You may work as an educator, theologian, importer-exporter or publisher. Depending on the depth of your religious convictions, you could be of some service in a spiritual capacity. You may have to travel long distances for work, or work in the travel industry.




The 10th House


The 10th House is associated with your status in the world. It describes your reputation and level of public success. It is the house of career and, traditionally, the house of the mother. In most cases, your 10th House cusp is at the Midheaven.




10th House Cusp in Libra

A sociable and obliging nature can assist you in your vocation. You can work well with others and may form professional partnerships. You are suited to careers that bring you into contact with other people. Career fields may involve the arts, fashion, music, theatre, personnel and diplomacy.


The outcome of this house is determined by the placement of its ruler.



10th House Cusp Ruler, Venus, in 6th House

Neptune in 10th House

You can be attracted to careers that enable you to express your creativity and imagination, such as the film industry, advertising, fashion and music. Equally, you are suited to charitable, service and healing work, or occupations connected with the sea, water, or the oil and chemical industries. You desire a profession that feeds your soul. Your reputation is always vulnerable, so care is needed that you don't damage it through dishonesty or scandal.
