What Is South Carolina's Affect on the Election?

Obama wins South Carolina primary

Let’s take a closer look… 


I have had several emails and phone calls asking me why I have been giving astrological profiles of  presidential candidates or a caucus outcome, and then sign-off with, ‘only God knows’ who will win the election rather than a stark prediction.

 It is obvious that all the talking heads (to put us under the television trance state they are called “pundits”) give a ‘written in stone and steel’ prognostication about who they just know is way ahead in the race for the White House with both the Democrats and the Republicans, and then when their “shoo-in” choice loses a primary, these screaming memes skedaddle on to the next field of battle—changing sides faster than my Daddy did women (he was married a bunch of times)—but when an astrologer weighs in, the bloodthirsty masses want an absolute prediction about who the winner is going to be, and then hold our feet to the fire until we give one. It always causes my bad knee to act up when those same people lose millions in the Stock Market and never cry for the blood of their brokers who put them in harm’s way. Go figure.

[I think I am going to call Dennis Miller and see if I can work for him. He just says it like it is (he is so on point that I come close to groveling when I watch him on TV), and then sits down with the great unwashed in Hollywood and other left wing watering holes to gather sound bites for his next stand up comedy act, or Bill O’Reilly or Larry King appearances. Yes, Mildred I love Dennis Miller! Just Shoot me!]

The Democratic Primary in South Carolina event chart on January 26, 2008 for 8:00 p.m. in Columbia, South Carolina  has Virgo ascending with Saturn exactly conjunct the rising sign in Virgo, making an incredibly positive aspect to three planets in Capricorn: Pluto, Venus and Jupiter—Saturn rules Capricorn. The significance of this configuration is that this was no fluke win for Obama—it could be the beginning of a groundswell. Saturn to Pluto planted deep seed for the rest of the race for Barack Obama.

What is more significant is that the Sun/Chiron/Neptune/Mercury and the North Node were in Aquarius making a glorious aspect to the powerful tenth house of career, reputation and honor, where the energy planet Mars was in Gemini also in great aspect to the Aquarian planets. Obama’s progressed Moon was conjunct the event chart’s Sun by degree. Not only does the event chart indicate how well Barack Obama would do in South Carolina but this could be more than happenstance. Hillary Clinton was far outdistancing Obama and Edwards everywhere two months ago.

Listen up, O high holy ones, who hang onto predictions like a fat girl does French fries, in looking closer at the charts of Clinton and Obama, Obama’s progressed Moon in Aquarius (remember all those great Presidents born under the Great Communicator sign of Aquarius?) may give him an edge on the Big Day, Super Tuesday.

This chart indicates that there is a brand new horse race and Obama has taken the lead. Self-serving suck-ups like 40-something year old opera-loving, gym rat bachelor, Julian Epstein, the former Chief Counsel for the Bill Clinton presidency, crowed that Hillary Clinton has too many committed super delegates for Obama to overtake her. Don’t put your money on those like Epstein, deeply invested in their particular candidate winning the whole enchilada.

We do not have open-minded commentary during any election season—the screeches are all working from the $$$ pockets of candidates. I remind you that Miss Hillary was ahead in South Carolina by more than 24 percentage points six weeks ago. Did you ever hear that expression, the “tide turned”? Well, sweet peas, turn it has. Barack Obama won South Carolina with 55% of the vote to 27% for Hillary Clinton and 18% for John Edwards. This is a lot bigger margin than she won by in both New Hampshire and Nevada. 

This you can put in your pipe and gag on the exhale if need be that Hillary Clinton will stay in the race no matter how far behind she is because her chart shows that she feels entitled—after all—she lived in the White House for eight years.

Okay, the astrologer says ‘Obama Super Tuesday’ (psst, but only God knows. Hee, hee!)

This week we will take a closer look at the front-running Elephants, eh, Republicans, McCain, Romney and Hucklebuckleby (sic).

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.
