Astrological Disaster Looms in Obama-McCain Election

Obama-McCain AstrologyCosmic forces are combining in strange and astrologically stressful ways leading up to the 2008 election, Barry Orr writes for Reality Sandwich. On election day, November 4, 2008, Saturn and Uranus will be in direct opposition with each other. Saturn is a force for conservatism, according to Orr, while Uranus is a force for reform. Having these two planets 180 degrees apart from the earth, as they will be on election day, could be cataclysmic. Orr suggests a number of astrologically possible situations:

1. “The election will be postponed or canceled due to some ‘national emergency.’”
2. “One or more candidates will leave the race.”
3. “There will be rampant fraud or data foul-ups on Election Day, and yet another election will be stolen.”

The fates laid out by Orr and other astrologers aren’t deterministic. There were, however, a number of prescient political readings made by astrologers before. Orr gives the example of astrologer Jim Shawvan, who predicted before the 2000 election: 

The election may be so close in some states that it may be several days before the actual electoral college votes can be tallied with accuracy. This could involve the counting of absentee ballots, and possible charges of fraud or irregularities in some places. As of election night, it may look very much like a Bush victory, but uncertainty may develop as the count goes on.

#3. I guess you are too young to remember all the votes for JFK with vacant lot addresses in Chicago. I imagine those vacant lot "voters" have multiplied 10 fold. I lived in Chicago then and it isn't any better now.

for some reason scenario no 2 chimes. Have felt for some time that Obama's star is on the rise, however his aging opponent is mighty. While McC may well have the trump card right up to election day (likely military flimflam), health issues may prove to be his Achilles heel in the grand finale
