President Obama is in Jupiter Main Period and Rahu sub period from Feb 2010 to July 2012. Jupiter and Rahu are two prominent planets that are influencing President Obama at this moment. Transit Jupiter was in a very strong position in Feb/Mar this year in Obama's second house and aspected the natal position of Rahu and 10th house lord Mars in Leo sign, when Obama got the Health Care Reform bill passed.
Transit Jupiter is weak and afflicted by transit Saturn during the months of May, June, July, August 2010 when Jupiter entered Pisces on May 18th, 2010, and came directly opposite transit Saturn in Virgo. President Obama is in Jupiter's Mahadasha. During these months Obama was dealing with the BP Oil Spill, and then issues related to his remarks supporting the right to build a mosque near Ground Zero. Now the congressional elections in November are coming up which will define the Obama Presidency for next two years. At present Republicans look likely to pick up seats and put their stamp on issues ranging from the huge budget deficit to economic recovery and immigration. President Obama is facing all these challenges when the Mahadasha lord Jupiter in his Vedic Astrology chart is afflicted and weakened by transit Saturn at this moment, and things look depressing for Democrats.
But President Obama's time is going to improve in Nov 2010 because Jupiter will be Stationary direct in its own Nakshatra in first few degrees in Pisces and then the end of Aquarius sign, very powerful. Also Jupiter will not be aspected by transit Saturn. Jupiter will be very strong and powerful for President Obama during the months of Nov, Dec 2010 and then Jan, Feb 2011. Last time when Jupiter was in such a position was during Feb/Mar 2010 when President Obama got the Health Care Reform Bill passed. President Obama's Astrology Chart looks very strong in November, 2010 at the time of congressional elections. Of course one needs to analyze the astrology charts of individual candidates to determine who will win or loose the election.
President Obama will again go through a difficult time during Mar, April, May 2011, and will face new challenges when transit Jupiter will again come back to Pisces directly opposite transit Saturn. During this time Mercury, Venus, Sun, and Mars will also be in Pisces along with Jupiter directly in the fire power of transit Saturn from Virgo. During this time the sub period lord Rahu in President obama's astrology chart will also become unfavorable as Rahu will be transiting Ketu's nakshatra and Ketu will be transiting Mars nakshatra, the badhaka planet for President Obama, from Feb 2011 to Oct 2011. These are very Sensitive months for President Obama and the United States.
