Gen. David Petraeus affair with Paula Broadwell

This is a brief astrological analysis of the sad affair between General Petraeus and Paula Broadwell.  At the time the affair started, late 2011, General Petraeus had Chiron square Ceres.  Chiron (success) making a negative aspect to Ceres (career) means that anything important natalized (started) at this time could have a negative impact to one's career.  This has certainly proved to be the case.  

The aspects between General Petraeus and Paula Broadwell as follows:
Venus trine Juno - super sex 
Jupiter conjunct Chiron - romance
June trine Uranus (twice) - super sex

Chiron contra-parallel Saturn - heartbreak
Ceres parallel Saturn - make mistakes together
Chiron square Uranus - infidelity

The positive aspects are very compelling and there is a strong physical attraction between them.  However they also have a heartbreak aspect and this does not bode well for the relationship.  This means that this affair was destined to end badly as we have all now seen.  One final note,  they also have the aspect Sun trine Uranus that is known as the super fame aspect.  This relationship has certainly lived up to that aspect.

Finally in his current transits has the following very negative aspects:
Saturn inconjunct Ceres - career heartbreak
Neptune square Ceres - career upheaval


Soulmate - When to look for one and how to determine if you have found the one

If your looking for a loving, lasting relationship there are times that will be very favorable and on the flip side times when you need to be extra careful.  The planets that are most favorable for relationships are Venus, Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto and the astroid Chiron.  Of these, good aspects between Venus or Neptune and Chiron are the most favorable.  Aspects between these planets and Saturn, especially Saturn and Chiron are very unfavorable for relationships.

Here is what you want to look for:
The best time to find a soulmate is when there is a transiting aspect between Chiron and Venus, Jupiter, Neptune and Pluto in your chart.  If you meet someone during this period the chances that that person will be the right one for you are greatly increased.  The other person should also be having these good aspects.  Then you want to compare that person's chart with your own.  You will need to have aspects between Chiron and the planets mentioned above with the other person.

What to avoid:
Saturn is the big nemesis here, especially if it is making a bad aspect to Chiron.  During this time you are highly unlikely to meet a loving, long-term partner.  Also if there are bad aspects between you and the other person involving Chiron and Saturn the chances of a long-term relationship are greatly diminished.  

Chiron is the asteroid that signifies love in a relationship.  Without it you may have attraction on an emotional, mental and/or physical level but will lack the love that holds it all together.

There are other planets that are important in a relationship for instance Mercury (communication) and Mars (working cooperatively).  

Finally there is one asteroid that is directly related to sex and affairs - Juno.  I'll say more about this in a future post.

If you would like to know when you are most likely to meet a potential partner or if you are in an existing relationship and want to know the potential for a long-term relationship you can contact me.  My contact information is on my web page edcastroastrology.com

Elizabeth Warren over Scott Brown

In this race Warren also have very few negative aspects (mostly minor) and many good aspects.  The best of these being Uranus in-conjunct Chiron, Chiron conjunct Chiron, Uranus parallel Sun,  Jupiter conjunct Uranus, Uranus contra-parallel Jupiter and Pluto parallel Jupiter.  

Brown has some good aspects, especially Jupiter parallel Pluto, Uranus in-conjunct Pluto, Jupiter contra-parallel Ceres and Uranus contra-parallel Ceres.  Unfortunately he also has Chiron opposition Pluto (twice), Ceres contra-parallel Saturn (twice) and Ceres contra-parallel Earth/Moon complex.

I believe these negative aspects will be hard to overcome especially as his opponent has very few negative aspects.  Based on the above I'm picking Warren to defeat Brown.

Claire McCaskill over Todd Akin

In this race McCaskill has 2 minor negative aspects while Akin has an overwhelming 11 negative aspects in his progressed and transits charts.  Some of these are the very worst, Chiron square Saturn, Saturn square Jupiter, Chiron square Pluto, Pluto square Ceres.  You get the picture.  I will be very surprised if McCaskill doesn't win this race.

Sherrod Brown over Josh Mandel

Sherrod Brown has good aspects overall that out number his negative aspects.  Especially Chiron Trine Jupiter (twice) and Chiron trine Ceres in the progressions.  In his transits he has Pluto conjunct Chiron, Ceres contra-parallel Uranus.  While he has some negative aspects they are not nearly as bad as the the ones Josh Mandel is dealing with.  He has Saturn opposition Chiron (twice) and Saturn in-conjunct the Earth/Moon complex.  He has quite a few good aspects but I think it will be hard to overcome the negative influence of the 2 above.

Everyone who has been selected to run for office will have good aspects or they would not have been chosen, the difference maker is the number of negative aspects compared to your opponent.  Based on the above I'm giving the nod to Brown.

Tim Kaine over George Allen

I'm picking Tim Kaine over George Allen because Allen has many more negative aspects than positive ones.  He has 8 negative vs 4 positive aspects in his progressed chart and 4 negative vs 5 positive in the transit chart.  Compare this to Tim Kaine who has 4 negative vs 3 positive in the progressed chart and 2 negative vs a whopping 10 positive aspects in his transit chart.

George Allen
Negative Progressed aspects (main ones only)
Saturn opposition Ceres (twice), Uranus opposition Chiron (twice), Chiron square Saturn.

Positive Progressed aspects (main ones only)
Pluto parallel Uranus, Chiron parallel Venus, Pluto trine Jupiter, Chiron conjunct Venus.

Negative Transits (main ones only)
Pluto square Ceres, Pluto square Saturn, Chiron in-conjunct Saturn, Ceres square Earth/Moon complex

Positive Transits (main ones only)
Chiron parallel Sun, Ceres parallel Uranus, Ceres parallel Pluto, Pluto conjunct Venus, Ceres contra-parallel Uranus

Tim Kaine
Negative Progressed aspects (main ones)
Ceres opposition Chiron, Ceres contra-parallel Saturn

Positive Progressed aspects (main ones)
Venus trine Ceres, Neptune conjunct Jupiter, Neptune parallel Jupiter 
Negative Transits
Saturn square Ceres, Ceres opposition Saturn

Positive Transits
Pluto in-conjunct Uranus, Chiron trine Neptune, Ceres trine Jupiter, Neptune in-conjunct Ceres, Pluto in-conjunct Uranus, Ceres trine Chiron, Jupiter contra-parallel Uranus

Besides the aspects I also look at planetary synchronization, that is, how many planets overall are involved in the aspect picture.  Tim Kaine has the highest number of positive planets that are at or near the same degree.  Based on these very favorable astrological aspects I think Kaine has a distinct advantage over Allen come election day.

Sherrod Brown will defeat Josh Mandel for Ohio senate seat

Incredibly Josh Mandel has only 2 favorable aspects in his progressed chart going up against 4 negative aspects.  He has more positive aspects in his transits 9 versus 4 negative aspects but unfortunately for Mandel 2 of those aspects are very bad, Saturn in-conjunct the Earth/Moon complex and Saturn opposition Chiron.

Josh Mandel
Progressed favorable:
Sun conjunct Uranus, Uranus contra-parallel Jupiter.

Progressed unfavorable:
Mars parallel Saturn, Jupiter square Sun, Pluto square Mars, Saturn parallel Chiron.

Transits favorable:
Jupiter trine Pluto, Chiron in-conjunct Sun, Chiron trine Jupiter, Ceres parallel Jupiter, Jupiter in-conjunct Uranus, Ceres in-conjunct Ceres, Jupiter parallel Chiron, Ceres parallel Jupiter, Ceres parallel Chiron.

Transits unfavorable:
Saturn opposition Chiron,  Uranus opposition Sun, Saturn in-conjunct Earth/Moon complex, Saturn opposition Chiron.

Sherrod Brown has 4 favorable and 4 negative aspects in his progressed chart.  The 2 most positive and positive being Chiron trine Jupiter which he has twice.  He also has one of the best aspects you can have for career success, Pluto conjunct Chiron in his transit chart.

Progressed favorable:
Chiron trine Jupiter (twice), Jupiter in-conjunct Neptune.

Progressed unfavorable:
Jupiter square Pluto, Chiron opposition Uranus, Saturn contra-parallel Ceres.

Transits favorable:
Pluto conjunct Chiron, Sun parallel Chiron, Jupiter contra-parallel Uranus, Ceres contra-parallel Uranus.

Transits unfavorable:
Saturn in-conjunct Ceres

Although Mandel has more positive than negative aspects in the transits the negative aspects are among the worst you can have.  Specifically, Saturn opposition Chiron which he has twice.  To overcome this he would have to have more positive Chiron aspects to Pluto, Neptune, Jupiter.  Sherrod Brown meanwhile has very few negative aspects vis-a-vis positive aspects.  This is why I am choosing Sherrod Brown to defeat Josh Mandel for the Senate seat in Ohio.

Why Obama will win on November 6th
This November Obama and Biden will win the election. Romney and Ryan will not win the election because their astrological aspects are very negative. Congressman Ryan had positive aspects until the last week of August and from here on out it all turns very negative.  Based on this I'm predicting an Obama/Biden victory. In addition the aspects for several candidates in the Republican Party are now also very negative and I am predicting they will lose the Senate and also lose ground in the House.  I will post some of these in the next few days.

Obama has 11 favorable aspects in his progressed chart and 12 favorable aspects in his transit chart.  On the negative side he has 3 unfavorable in the progressed and 1 unfavorable in his transit chart.  The 3 unfavorable in his progressed chart all involve the asteroid Ceres which is directly related to career.  The most negative being Saturn square Ceres.  In his transit chart he has Saturn square Jupiter which is also a very powerful negative aspect and directly related to his career.  However the overwhelming number of positive aspects has helped to overcome these negative aspects.  

The most potent of these are:
Progressed favorable:
Jupiter contra-parallel Pluto, Chiron trine Venus, Ceres parallel Venus, Jupiter in-conjunct Pluto and Jupiter contra-parellel Uranus.  
Transits favorable:
Jupiter parallel Pluto, Pluto parallel Jupiter, Chiron trine Neptune, Uranus parallel Jupiter and Ceres parallel Jupiter.  
Progressed unfavorable:
Saturn square Ceres, Ceres opposition Neptune and Ceres square the Earth/Moon complex.
Transits unfavorable:
Saturn square Jupiter

Romney also has good aspects but not as many as Obama, however, he has twice as many negative aspects in his progressed chart and 8 times as many unfavorable aspects in his transit chart.  
The breakdown of the main aspects is as follows:
Progressed favorable:  
Jupiter trine Sun, Uranus parallel Pluto, Pluto parallel Uranus, Chiron parallel Ceres, Ceres in-conjunct Chiron, Chiron parallel Jupiter.
Progressed unfavorable:
Uraus square Sun (both geo & hello) , Chiron square Saturn (both geo & hello).  Chiron square Saturn is the worst negative aspect one can have & he has it twice.
Transits unfavorable: 
Chiron in-conjunct Saturn, Saturn parallel Ceres, Pluto contra-parallel Saturn, Saturn conjunct Chiron, Chiron square Juno, Ceres square Ceres.

The Chiron square Juno aspect is known as the end of the dream aspect or shattered dreams aspect.  He also has other negative aspects with Juno which signifies illusion, lies & deceit.  

When running for office all candidates will have good aspects or they would never have been selected in the first place, however, the difference maker is the negative aspects and Romney has so many of them that they overwhelm his good aspects.  This is why I see Obama winning the election.
