Let me first put a major disclaimer of this case as I consider myself apolitical in nature. This means my understanding of political backgrounds and what it means is next to zilch!The first thing I saw when looking at his chart is his obvious political passion that is displayed quite openly. (displayed by the Jia Wood in the heavenly stem hour pillar). Heis a Ji Earth person, is surrounded by plenty of friends (or supporters), both supporting him as well as wanting a little more from the relationship (RobWealth). Even looking at him, you can see his refine and less agressive profile usually corresponding to a Ying Earth type person.Strong Ji earth person sitting on resource plus born is summer, indicates a strong character with strong self belief – a very important criteria to have to be possibly the most powerful man on earth!
My one big concern, is the stem combo of Jia Wood and Ji Earth, producing more earth. Does this mean his political righteousness is just a front? (Direct Officer is combined away). If I interpret this in Malaysia, it means, money politics! (forget the virtues, get more support to win!) Or does it mean, his desires will not be fulfilled? In a few weeks, we will find out, so no point trying to guess. The campaign is already getting nastier, with today’s headlines of McCain (his primary contender) promising to ‘whip’ him in the next debate! (btw I didn’t even bother to watch the debates!) The other thing to note is wood usually represents ‘compassion’. Does this mean, his style would be very ‘uncompassionate’?
There’s a few bullying punishment structures in the chart (indicated by Ox – Goat – Dog). My read in this is his life is more challenging. If you read his bio, he had quite a challenging childhood and early life, with his parents divorcing early, he moving to schools in Indonesia, his father dying in a car wreck in 1982 and mother dying from cancer in 1995.
2009 is a Ji Chou year, indicating even more support (earth) for him – again, signs of victory!
