Go to fullsize imageLet’s take a close look…


The Pennsylvania Democratic Primary is April 22, 2008.

Events and cities and countries have charts just like us human beings do. You can even erect a chart for an idea; we astrologers do it all the time. All of this insinuates correctly that where the planets are in aspect to one another at any give time of day or night determines how good or how bad an idea or project from the moment of thought is, or what will be the outcome of an event.

Since polls usually close at eight o’clock in the evening, I have erected an event chart for that time of day, which gives Scorpio rising—definitely favorable to Hillary. The rising sign indicates how the public sees or judges, in this case, an event, and how that person (the candidate) sees the world at large. Scorpio is, among other jarring adjectives, secretive and deadly but also powerful and transformative. (Scorpio also has the tendency to go to any lengths, legal and underhanded, to win when she locks and loads).

The ruler of the chart, Pluto will be in favorable aspect to Clinton’s Scorpio Sun sign. Ms. Hillary will be clicking on all cylinders. Obama, on the other hand, has Pluto oppose his Natal Venus at 1 degree of Cancer—which is not good at all. Momma looks like she is gonna be fast at the close.

But wait a minute. Neptune in the Democratic Primary Chart has Neptune squaring Clinton’s Mercury in Scorpio—this means ‘somebody’s lying and not getting away with it’—again. Actually, Obama has Jupiter, the blessed planet, in Aquarius at birth. Never forget that the United State has an Aquarian Moon. Remember all those articles I have written about how statesmen like Lincoln and Franklin Roosevelt were Great Communicators? It was the Aquarian Affect! Put a couple of points on the Barack Obama side of the ledger! And while we are at it, Jupiter transiting in Capricorn, will conjunct Obama’s Saturn almost by degree. Give that spellbinding speaker another point or two.

But the tell-tale planet that will seal it for Clinton is the transiting Moon will be at 1 degree of Sagittarius conjunct her Jupiter at 00 degrees of Sagittarius. Jupiter will always (with some reservations that would take the eagle eye and moxie of a seasoned astrologer to unravel—sorry folks!) shower a person or event with four leaf clovers and oftentimes a lot of dough (you know—the bankable kind!) This powerful aspect will be hard for Obama to overcome.

Because the Sun will be at 03 degrees of Taurus—which speaks volumes because the Bull is known to be stubborn, loyal and more than a bit thin-skinned—both Clinton and Obama will be scrapping and fighting it out in the dirt and mud all day and all night for the spoils as Taurus opposes her Sun in Scorpio exactly and squares his Mercury. However Venus will be transiting at 20 degrees of Aries which is much more favorable to Barack Obama. We sky map conjurers must always weight and balance all planets in all configurations to determine the outcome.

When all votes are counted just as most of the polls indicate, Hillary Rodham Clinton will win the Pennsylvania Democratic Primary but not by the margins that she expected. And never forget that both candidates pick up delegates, so the race for the Democratic Nomination will still be open, albeit not as wide-open as the Clintons would like—can we say ‘ajar’?—but perhaps closing unfavorably on Ms. Clinton’s, nee Rodham, over-sized Jimmy Choo shoes. Ouch!

He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

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.
