Since President Obama’s principal headache is the economy any cheer on his chart should indicate reasonably good news on that front. He has transiting Pluto sextile his Jupiter/North Node midpoint from late Jan 2011 off and on for almost a couple of years which is upbeat and successful. And a positive change of direction tr Uranus trine his Midheaven in Feb 2011. Not that it’ll be all singing and dancing since he’ll have some sinking, directionless moments as well in Feb 2011 and Sept to early Jan 2012 with tr Neptune square his Midheaven (birth time being exactly accurate).
His Administration chart has the Sun Jupiter conjunction moving to close by Solar Arc in effect through the autumn of 2011 which should also lead to a surge of confidence. Though it is also having to contend with a de-stabilising tr Uranus square Pluto thro’ April and Oct/Nov 2011. And a teeth-gritting Solar Arc Mars trine Saturn in late 2011 as well.
So there’s good and bad but not as unremittingly gloomy as it looked at points this year.

The Federal Reserve chart looks moderately upbeat in coming months, at points even overly confident and expansive. Though the first half of April and October/November 2011 look stressed as transiting Uranus squares their ultra-fixed Saturn Pluto conjunction which suggests a few unwelcome surprises and jolts.
The Dow Jones chart has its insecure moments in May and August as tr Uranus is conjunct the Dow Jones Mars but since it also trines Jupiter there could be some real highs. 2012 looks much more problematic, indeed there could be a catastrophic share fall then. The Federal Reserve also looks to be having a much worse 2012 than 2011.
The USA chart has tr Pluto sextile the Solar Arc Sun which is modest progress thro’ 2011/12. Though there is also a build up of rather alarming Solar Arcs which look less economic and more to do with terrorism/war or widescale natural disasters. Though inevitably they will have financial knock on effects. The Solar Arc Mars will reach the exact trine to the USA Saturn come Aug/Sept 2011 which will require courage and grit. And even more taxing the Solar Arc Pluto with square the USA Mars, exact by next autumn with the strongest effects being usually felt before hand. That is fraught, frustrating, scary. Since the USA Mars is in a close square to Neptune it will bring in a feel of Solar Arc Pluto conjunct Neptune as well though that doesn’t come exact till late 2012 – which is panicky, confused and is often around during natural disasters like earthquakes or has a nuclear association.
Those are the most negative meanings and it could just bring feelings of devastation with no clear exit from problems over that phase. Plus the Solar Arc Saturn is in a jolting conjunction to the USA Uranus in early 2012. So it’ll be a fairly rough road ahead for a while. Though with some bright spots as well.
