Wedding Day of the Obamas: Oct 18, 1992
Since I sassily nosed into the Clinton’s Wedding Day planetary weather, it’s only fair to look at Barack and Michelle Obama’s Wedding Day, Oct 18, 1992, Chicago, Rev Jeremiah Wright presiding.
From the year–1992–you know immediately that their marriage began just prior to the Great Conjunction of Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn in 1993 (171-year-cycle):
Feb 2 (19Cap34); Aug 20 (18Cap48); and Oct 24 (18Cap33.) The last date is the one I use for the natal chart of the New World Order for the degree of Ura/Nep “18Cap” is key to understanding the beast (POLITICAL POWER.)
The pair met in 1989 at the law firm where she was employed when she was made advisor to Barack, a Harvard ‘summer associate’ who was apparently taken more with Michelle than with corporate law.
So what was going on overhead on the day of their nuptials? As above, so below!
Oct 18, 1992: Sun in Libra, Moon in Cancer, square (similar to Billary’s–Sun Lib–Moon Cap) so generally speaking, the difference between their marriages is the Moon’s positions–one in ambitious, politically minded Cap, the other in business and family oriented Cancer.
Both ladies are attorneys at law, with Michelle Obama perhaps the winner in the nurturing sweepstakes.
Again using ‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign,’ Chas & Suzi Harvey, here are some details on the Sun Lib-Moon Cancer pairing which describes, in part, their relationship:
adaptable; entertaining; sociable with a love of intimacy; domestic; musical; intuitive; devoted; nervous; intelligent curiosity; emotional; sensitive; quiet individualism and respect for others’ rights; artistic and communication power; adaptability in the face of obstacles.
Weaknesses: may over-romanticize people and places; sentimentality; emotional vulnerability; carping when others don’t look after you in the “right” way.
Relationships: close relationships bring out the best in you–eventually; tremendous need for love; childhood behavior scripts are deeply embedded and can turn the mate into mum or dad; a desire to comfort, amuse, and encourage the mate is mutual; pitfalls are being too accommodating, overly possessive, or manipulating.

(Well, that seems to well-describe their deal–he comes home from Washington or the campaign trail every weekend, last I heard!)
The Obamas’ I-Dos took place during the 12 South Solar Eclipse Series of June 30, 1992. Keyphrases for this Series are:
longterm worries or illness concerns; an issue will at first seem worse, then clear with sucessful outcomes. (‘Predictive Astrology,’ Bernadette Brady.)
The Eclipse was triggered during their nuptials by asteroid Juno, ‘the wife.’ Perhaps the marriage itself was a solution in some way for them–not unusual, if so.
Next manifestation of this Series: July 11, 2010 ’19Cancer.’
There’s much emotional energy in their Wedding Day chart with Moon (which remained in Cancer for the 24-hour period) dancing about with Mars 18Can04–opposite Uranus and Neptune.
Jupiter 1Lib40 trines Barack’s natal Jupiter, and is conj America’s natal Midheaven (Sibly: 5:10 pm lmt, July 4, 1776) which is a nice aspirational link, yet there are two midpoint pictures formed in the Sunrise chart (7:11:22 am cdt, Chicago, IL) which I shall mention:
Mercury/Venus = Pluto: a sense of mission; the successful “hard sell.”
Venus/Neptune = NN: relationships are unclear in their value system; an unhappy union; disappointment in relationships.
Well, since the path of love is often strewn with disappointments of one kind or another, and since their marriage seems to suit them both, it’s time for me to bow out of their luv business and hope this thumbnail sketch has given you some small insight into the marriage of Barack and Michelle Obama.
Guess John McCain and his current wife are next on my Wedding Day Astrology agenda!
