Who will be the Big Winners on Super Tuesday?

Let’s take a closer look…


These elections are so exciting—it’s like roosters and one hen vying for a big piece of stuff in the chicken coop—with all the dust and feathers flying from the plucking and clucking that has turned out to be the presidential primary season. You may be too young to remember when neither the Democratic Party nor the Republican Party knew who the candidate would be until their National Conventions. Don’t you love the electoral system in this supposed greatest democracy in the world? Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, this country is run by egomaniacs in politics, a cabal in Wall Street and the bully pulpit from the Church. Why don’t we have a system that allows candidates dumb enough to run to keep their chugging and a-lugging in gear until Convention time? Because people like the Clintons and the Bushes want a tighter rein on how to influence the outcome in a shorter period of time.

Now back to Super Tuesday. Here are the charts of the four people still viable including Mitt Romney—McCain thinks he has it locked up. Go get him, Mitt! (And Hillary better watch her War Room with those eagle eyes and clip the loose tongue of her husband because Obama is picking up momentum).

For the Democrats

Hillary Clinton has a lot of problems with all the Aquarian planets on Super Tuesday square her four planets plus Chiron in Scorpio—and her Leo planets oppose the Aquarian planets. Obama on the other hand has Jupiter, the planet that blesses (most of the time when it is not making you feel over-optimistic), in Aquarius, picking up the favorable winds of Moon/Chiron/Sun/Mercury (though retrograde—no clear winner here—retrograde Mercury usually throws in a few surprises)/Neptune and the North Node in Aquarius. (This is an astrological civics lesson as well as insights Super Tuesday. Always remember that Aquarius favor statesmen and leaders who seem to have the lightning touch of success from the Guy in the Sky).

My prediction: Obama picks up delegates that Clinton thought were a lock for her, like the Kennedys endorsing Obama. She definitely will not have her neat little nomination assured by the end of the long and hard-fought day.

For the Republicans

There is no question that John McCain and all the pundits have him sailing into a knock down, drag it out interminably with Miss Hillary. Stop the world I want to weigh in with the fact that McCain has no Aquarian planets, but he does have Saturn sitting on his Sun, which oftentimes indicates weeping and gnashing of teeth. Romney on the other hand has Venus in Aquarius and the Moon that day and night will conjunct it. Good aspect, Mitt. But you too have the Clinton curse of those squares to your Jupiter/Moon conjunction in Scorpio. One for McCain. Uranus is in Pisces and it is free floating around Mitt’s Mercury and Sun. Uranus can mean an upset. ½ point for Gov. Romney.

My prediction: McCain will probably pick up more delegates than Romney, but I will remind him and Miss Hillary that there are fifty states and not just those they have won or lost in a few primaries and/or caucuses and I am rooting for an old-fashioned horse race through the National Conventions. I do not want to see a lot of crowing and chest (or breast) beating all Winter, Spring and Summer long for having had a better campaign committee that knows how to browbeat and maximize the belials, laggards and robotoids into “getting out the vote”. Smile.

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.
