The Horoscope of a Country



by Kosmic Kelly September 21, 2009 02:25 PM EST


Why is it hard to find the charts or birth information on presidents? I know that Obama is a Leo..but he seems to have Libra and or Gemini on the rise--is it true that the USA is a Cancer - Gemini nation?

It's hard to create birth charts for anyone when there is no birth time, an unreliable birth time or a number of different birth times reported. US presidents are as difficult as some clients in this regard - but they may also choose to keep this informaton private, as an accurately timed birth chart can be a powerful tool!

Barack Obama is a Leo and there are a number of birth times floating around for him. I checked in with Astrodatabank, an amazing free online resource of chart data, to find they have Obama listed with an Aquarius rising, though there is some debate even there about his birth time.

Previous US president Bill Clinton also has no confirmed birth time - however the 8.51am time listed on Astrodatabank seems to come from a more reputable source than the variety of times listed for Obama. (At Astrodatabank, birth times are given a rating depending on the reliability of their source.) Clinton is also a Leo.

Previous US president George Bush is commonly accepted to have a Leo ascendant - his Sun sign is Cancer.

Mundane Astrology is the branch of astrology that deals with the horoscopes of countries - and finding the time for countries charts is even harder than finding times for the births of people. The USA is commonly accepted as having been 'born' on the fourth of July 1776, making it a country who has it's star or sun sign in Cancer. One of the most widely quote charts is the 'Sibly' chart, which suggests a time of 5.10pm in Philadelphia.

If you're interested to find out more about the horoscopes of different countries, I'd suggest grabbing a copy of Nicholas Campion's Book of World Horoscopes.
