Who is Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran: a Visionary or a Scoundrel?

 Let’s take a closer look…


Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was born on October 28, 1956 in Garmsar, Iran; no birth time.




Although the exact time of birth is unavailable for Ahmadinejad, the President of Iran, his planets in angulations and signs can tell us a lot about his character. He has Sun (his identity) and Neptune (the planet of both vision and deception) conjunct in Scorpio—which is a sign that is known to distrust the motives of others; Scorpios oftentimes live in shrouds of fear. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is no exception. Because his Sun and Neptune are squared by Uranus in Leo, he has more than a touch of megalomania and self-deception. At the root of his personality is a sense of divine appointment to lead the people of Iran, while he is more a puppet of a clandestine cartel than a true statesman.

The most dangerous aspect in his birth chart is Pluto in Virgo square his Saturn in Sagittarius. This aspect portends one who will fight to the death for his ideology or place in history. Since Pluto is trining his natal Pluto don’t look for any coup d’etat to unnerve or unhinge this man who is actually quite intelligent and well educated (Venus and Jupiter conjunct in critical and analytical Virgo), although he likes to play the buffoon—all orchestrated to deceive his detractors. Do not expect him to dismantle his nuclear program. This man means business when it comes to intimidation.  

He has another good luck charm that hovers over his astrological birth chart, and that is mutual reception between Venus and Mercury—mutual reception has the effect of a Guardian Angel looking after him as well as a good luck horseshoe thrown in for good measure.

As we age planets move and form different and oftentimes not so favorable shades of troublesome ley lines throughout the rest of one’s life. Ahmadinejad has lived long enough for a Cardinal Cross to form within his planetary destiny: the Moon in Cancer opposes Mercury in Capricorn and both are being squared by Mars in Aries and Jupiter in Libra. These are red flags and not propitious to his well-being.

Within the next two years he will have alienated enough power brokers on the world stage to make him dispensable to those in the shadows of his presidency. He may be voted out of office or he might be removed by force. Stay tuned.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
