Who is the real George Clooney and why is he supporting but not endorsing Barack Obama?

George Clooney was born May 6, 1961 at 2:58 am in Lexington, Kentucky


His Character

With Pisces rising or ascending—moody, dreamy, passive-aggressive—possibly addictions—his chart ruler is Neptune which is in Scorpio. He definitely deserves his Best Looking Man in the World Award from People Magazine a few years ago, but with his Venus in fiery Aries—self and self-centered—and his Moon in Capricorn—cold and detached—all business—conjunct Saturn, which rules Capricorn, I would say that there is a good chance this may be the Bachelor for All Lifetimes. George definitely does what he wants to do when he wants to do it.


Sun/Mercury in Taurus—determined and resolute—also sensitive and stubborn as a mule—gives rise to the great need to go his own way and do his thing because Taurus is ruled by Venus—which he has in Aries. His Mars is in Leo—the actor, the playboy, the risk taker and daredevil—make a wide or orb trine to his Venus. But my suspicions tell me that he is as much a man’s man as a lady’s man. Oceans 13 had one woman in it—it was a vintage George “art imitating life” astrologically anyway.


Clooney’s recent emergence as a role model and United Nations spokesperson—actively going into countries to rouse support with more than speeches with applause—is supported by his progressed Sun moving into Cancer five months ago. When the Sun sign in one’s birth chart moves into a new sign this occurrence is life-changing and extremely significant. If I can hedge my bet, Mr. Clooney may decide to settle down. Cancer is about home and nesting. Stay tuned.



His Humanity

George Clooney has just been appointed an Ambassador of Peace by the controversial United Nations and he has been active—gone into the challenging devastated countries like Darfur in the Sudan—in raising the awareness globally about how dire are circumstances in the Sudan and Kenya and other hot spots. Clooney seems to be sincere and I did not get the impression that he was doing this for the photo op and high praise from the great unwashed. 


In an interview with CNN’s Kiran Chetry on February 1, 2008, George Clooney made a lot of sense when he told her that he supports Barack Obama: “his is a voice that reminds me of Robert Kennedy and John F Kennedy and his message inspires me” but he will not endorse him. Clooney, in campaigning for his father in a Congressional race a few years ago saw that the Hollywood connection harmed, not helped, his Dad.

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.
