On the eve of the Sun’s opposition to the July 21, 2009 Desire for Reforms Eclipse, the dark side of the Obama Administration was slowly being revealed. In a new book “Game Change” by NY Time’s Mark Halperin and New York Magazine’s John Heilemann, events are reconsructed after the fact by operatives who may have had more interest in settling scores then setting the record straight. While this technique makes the political stories made for TV movie fodder, I wonder about our obsession with identifying a devil in Obama’s camp.
But that’s not the only development. The devils in the Transit Sun’s opposition to the July 21, 2009 Desire for Reforms Eclipse are few but their combined magnitude is great. They include: (1) a very public birthday dinner date between Barack and Michelle (White House sources told a Globe reporter that the two get so angry they often sleep in separate bedrooms, Jan 18 2010), (2) renewed fighting in downtown Kabul with weapons grade bombs, (3) food riots and looting in earthquake torn Haiti requiring a military response, and (4) new earthquakes erupt in Central America.
Let’s take a quick look at the orbiting daytime planets in Central America and the Caribbean one (1) day before the Sun’s opposition by transit. Coursing across the Caribbean are Mars, Chiron and Sedna. Chiron is the asteriod of painful transformations. It was coursing right through the Haitian peninsula where known faults exist. Due west are Guatemala and El Salvador where another earthquake was reported on Monday, January 18th. Then there is Sedna. She is the newbie on the block discovered just a few years ago. Sedna is half fish. She is the mistress of life and death to the Inuit people. While Sedna is not considered strong outside artic waters, when teamed with Chiron and Mars she may be able to wield some damage. For example, if Sedna is not respected she begins to feel her hands sear with pain and, in her misery, sends sickness, storms, and starvation to punish the humans. Lastly, we have Mars. From this week’s news reports a number of Mars like events have erupted in Haiti. News accounts feature men with large knives and machetes fanning out through the center of the city of Port Au Prince creating chaos. Another account notes the build-up of American and UN forces and fire power to keep Haitian unrests under control.
Below I’ve circled the region where the earthquakes struck. Mars‘ path is a red dotted line, Sedna’s path is a white line and Chiron is a green line. To view a larger image click once on the picture below.
By January 19, 2010 at approximately 10:45 am trouble will clear out of the Caribbean. Food will get through and starvation will abate as Mars, Sedna and Chiron widen their arc and move to the coast of Brazil. What remains is Uranus and its path is through Guatemala.

Many mundane astrologers believe Solar Maps are essential in predicting the occurrence of events throughout the world. Today’s findings prove there is a great deal of credence in this belief especially in regard to Earth’s weather patterns and geology. However, eclipses still hold reign over seasonal occurrences and the rise and fall of empires.
Moving forward, below is a look at the Desire for Reforms Eclipse and the current Transits. The Reforms Eclipse is on the inner wheel and the Transits are on the outer wheel. To view a larger image click once on the picture below.
Here’s another view of our empire with the Desire for Reforms Eclipse on the inner wheel, the Transits in the center Wheel and President Barack Obama’s Birth Chart on the outer wheel. One thing of note is how Barack Obama’s Jupiter seems to negate the apparent opposition formed by the Reforms Eclipse Sun and the Transits’ Sun.

So now that we’ve come to a milestone in tracking the effects of the separating aspects to the Desire for Reform Eclipse, let’s take a look at the transits that will now be applying to the Desire for Reform Eclipse Sun and Moon.
- The Quincunx – 150 degrees – (What happened last time? Winter storms coursed the northeast and Europe)
- The Biquintile – 144 degrees – (What happened last time? President made tough decisions about Afghanistan)
- The Sesquisquare – 135 degrees – (What happened last time? Obama accepted the Nobel Peace Prize)
- The Trine – 120 degrees – (What happened last time? Health reform made it through the house)
- The Square – 90 degrees – (What happened last time? Nidal Malik Hassan made plans for the Fort Hood Massacre. Within 10 -12 days Hassan executed his plan.)
- The Quintile – 72 degrees – ?
- The Sextile – 60 degrees-air – ?
So, what’s up with Dennis Hopper?
Transiting Saturn-Vertex may be the culprit for Dennis Hopper’s current physical and financial woes. Right now Hopper who is 73 is in the midst of a physical challenge with prostate cancer, but to everyone’s surprise he announced today that he was seeking a divorce from his wife of 14-years. Is this the way to go when fighting to survive a life threatening illness? What’s up with Dennis Hopper?

1-Minute Delineations – A Mini Course on Decans
Decans were used during the middle ages and renaissance periods up through the decline of astrology during the eighteenth century. H. E Wedeck in his book called the Dictionary of Astrology defines decans as follows “…ten degrees of each zodical sign are dedicated to a plaent which assumes influence when it passes through this ten-degree space. This ten degree space is called a decan. There are thirty-six decans at ten degrees. In these the planets, except the Sun and the Moon alternate.” Remember, the Sun and Moon are not planets.
The banner on this blog page depicts a horoscope with decans. Prior to the decline of astrology decans made it easy for an astrologer to dig deeper into the meaning of a planets’ placement. Much like the Arabic Parts, the proper definition, use and application of decans probably fell into obscurity and misuse shortly after the decline of astrology. As a result, modern day astrologers moved away from using them opting to show a more technical or astronomical definition for the placement and occurrence of astrological phenomena in horoscopic charts. But something went missing — fun!!
In general, decans can make delineations easy, simple, and fun. They are a great tool for teaching the basics of astrology, as an ice-breaker at parties, or in groups. What’s so fun about decans? Let’s take a look at Michelle Obama’s chart and do a 1-minute delineation using astrological key words.
Another example that I did not add to the view above is Michelle’s Mercury in Capricorn, 8th house. Now most astrologers will agree that the key words for Michelle’s Mercury are:
Communications, logic, leadership, in banking, taxes, the law, sex, death, secrets.
Here’s the same interpretation with the decan of Saturn.
Careful responsibility and discipline in communications, logic, leadership, in banking, taxes, the law, sex, death, secrets.
Is she some type of an attorney or CPA? Yes.
Michelle was a corporate attorney. Here, the decan has allowed us to see how seriously Michelle takes her responsibility when she is acting out her Mercury.
So the next time you’re stuck delineating by triplicities, rulers, elements, retrogrades, void of course, aspects, etc., and find yourself totally confused, pull up a chart featuring decans and empower your interpretation. Don’t knock it, or allow anyone to dissuade you because people equate showmanship with intelligence and talent. Who knows, you may pique enough interest to generate several commissions for indepth readings. Also, try tracking your progressed Sun, moon, mercury and venus with the decans to give yourself a daily reading. I’ve met some very good astrologers who exclusively employed the use of decans in tracking the Sun, moon and other fast moving planets for daily readings. I was and remain amazed!
Until the approaching quincunx 30 days from now – Peace,
About the Series: Since the time of the Pharoahs, eclipses have marked our major historical events especially the rise and fall of empires. The Rise of Obama Series (TRO) by The Nude Provocateuse (aka The_Betty) is based on the premise that the Eclipse of August 1, 2008 was the astronomical event opening the road for Barack Obama’s assent to the presidency, and the Desire for Reforms Eclipse of July 21, 2009 is responsible for influencing his 2009-10 political agenda.
