The Return of Al Gore

Go to fullsize image  al-gore-natal-chart.jpegAl Gore was born on March 31, 1948 at 12:53 p.m. in Washington, D.C.


You may not believe my opening salvos about Al Gore, former U.S. Senator, former Vice-President, former Democratic Candidate for President of the United States, Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Oscar Winner, distant cousin to Gore Vidal, son of former U.S. Senator, Albert Gore, Sr., and husband of Tipper Gore and father of a brood of four from Tennessee, but this tiny terror from Tennessee is a dynamo and a go-getter! He’s so mean he could wrestle Alabama football coach legend Bear Bryant’s bear for supremacy and whip the competition with one hand tied behind his back.  

If he is so tough and indomitable, how did he lose the Presidency of the United States in 2000? Remember those hanging chads in Florida and the outrage that many of us felt that Al Gore was “robbed”? He might be tougher than he looks or acts, but the mean-spirited, ‘win at any cost’ mentality of the Karl Rove Republican Party steamroller would prove too much for even the fair and balanced Almighty. Karl Rove is evil to the core, but can you believe that television wants to hear from him when his dirty handiwork of the recent past screams from the battlefields of Iraq and malfeasance in the Oval Office? I can. I know a lot about television and how it mind controls. 

Al Gore has his Sun Sign in Aries, Pluto, Saturn and Mars in Leo and Jupiter in Sagittarius—five planets, half of his chart in FIRE. Fire means that he is passionate and enthusiastic; that he has the mojo to do anything and everything as long as he is the long distance runner. But when his son was hit by a car while going to a baseball game with Al in April, 1989, there was an intensive shift to ‘family matters’ through a lot of counseling as his son had long and arduous physical therapy to be able to recover. During his son’s rehabilitation, Gore wrote his best-seller, Earth in the Balance. Bill Clinton chose him as his running mate in 1992 and Gore served as Vice-President to Clinton’s Presidency for eight years. And then defeat snatched from the jaws of victory sent him into his cave of self-reflection.  

What verifies or disputes the reputation that Al Gore has for being stiff and slow to respond to questions? I have said a million times that you have to look at the whole chart to analyze and make determinations about who someone really is. In some sectors of the birth chart there could be invincibility and blessings from on high; in other parts, struggle and disappointment. 

Al Gore has the Moon at 3 degrees of Capricorn—which makes him slow and deliberate and oftentimes when he speaks, he misspeaks. Capricorn is the tortoise in the race of life; slow, but often finishes what others start. Speaking of not finishing things, he is an Aries, famous for the loud and resounding “ta da” and then fizzles or runs to the next thrill in the big top.  

But Gore has those three Leo planets in a close trine to his 10 degree Sun. He has proved in the last four years that he is not finished yet—he may be getting his second wind (or win). He has Venus in Taurus—loyal to a fault—we saw that in his allegiance to the Clintons. Remember how poorly they supported him in 2000? Their collective charts show that they are incapable of supporting anyone but themselves. It’s all about the Clintons 

Mercury in Pisces—Mercury is in its detriment here—he can dream but more often we can not live in his air castles. He has Mars in Leo square his Venus—at deep levels he compares himself to that powerful father and was always in the shadow of the “bigger than life” personality and show dog persona of Bill Clinton. Al Gore is definitely insecure about how people perceive him. When he became the father of global warming and show cased the threat to existence itself through environmental suicide, he found his calling, because the klieg light shifted from him as a person onto all of us as caretakers or abusers of the Planet Earth. 

His Jupiter in Sagittarius (that sign’s ruling planet by the way) makes him optimistic and hopeful no matter how late in the game is out world and no matter how much turnaround we all have to make, Al Gore is a rousing cheerleader for change. 

Don’t be surprised if Barack Obama chooses Al Gore to be his running mate. Yesterday Obama chose the former head of the Hillary Clinton campaign to be one of the three who vets his short list of possible contenders for Vice-President of the United States. Al Gore is not done. Now that the Clintons are done—over and out—Al Gore is still standing. Three cheers for Al Gore. Rah! Rah! Rah!

Listen to Margaret Wendt and Albert Gaulden discuss this and other controversial subjects on Spiritual Truths and call (800) 647-0732 if you would like a personal consultation with Albert.

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.
