Birth Chart Challenges & Abilities for Barack Obama
Challenges and Abilities
These are areas of life where we show intense focus and activity. For better or worse, these qualities stand out and are obvious to all those who come to know us. They are very clear parts of our character.
Your are very "bearish" when it comes to security and seldom make a move that does not strengthen your position. You pursue responsibilities the way others pursue pleasure, and you even invite obligations. Career moves are always solid, based on sound principles, and may be tied in with the law or authorities -- all that is solid and well-reasoned. You don't invest in anything that is not tried and tested. Truth, religion, and philosophy are subjects of great interest.

Challenges and Abilities
Life can be challenging, and things are not always easy. The major challenges in a natal chart are where we can expect increased activity and personal involvement -- ready or not. These critical areas of life can be difficult, and the resulting confusion and possible obscuration often makes it hard for us to see and act with normal clarity. Therefore, when it comes to the following factors you may wish to exercise caution and extra patience.
You may have to learn to think with more care when it comes to making career moves -- decisions that affect your life's direction. The fact is that you spend a lot of time on thoughts that have nothing to do with the real world. Many of these thoughts and ideas tend to be impractical and prove more trouble than they are worth. You are better off seeking advice than giving it, at least when it comes to matters of vocation.
Mercury Opposition Jupiter 01°28'
You keep your feelings and emotions to yourself and resent any attempt to analyze or probe them. Your home and surroundings are tidy and air-tight, as well. However, you don't mind probing and dissecting the lives of others. This can't help but produce a strain in your relations with others, and you probably get very little support for your detective work. These two parts of you which seldom meet cause constant tension, resulting in periodic explosions.
Moon Square Pluto 03°37'
You find yourself fighting to realize your ambitions amidst a sea of fuzzy dreams. A fear of letting go (and trusting the more mystical side of yourself) keeps you hard at it. You can't seem to let yourself dream a little, don't trust your own idealizations, and struggle between your sense of ideals and your more realistic ambitions. Your practical concerns with getting ahead and fulfilling your ambitions tend to ignore your more deep-rooted ideals and dreams. You may not trust those in authority.
Sun Square Neptune 03°57'
You flee from crowds and are most happy when surrounded by home, family, and all that is private. Your home life is most important. It matters not to you that you are not a public person and not at your best when in a crowd.
Moon Opposition Midheaven 04°28'
Your interest in relationships, romantic and otherwise, is strong and may sometimes work against your personal needs. You could lose yourself in the social world and neglect your ability to present yourself as a separate, unique individual.
Sun Opposition Ascendant 05°30'
You find talk of the other world, and mysticism in general, to be a real hassle. You struggle to keep this and any spiritual material at bay and, like your mind, down-to-earth and quite conventional. It may be hard for you to think about spiritual matters, much less express them in words or thoughts. You like your dreams neat and are troubled when thoughts of other lives and what-not intrude. You would rather not talk about it.
Mercury Square Neptune 06°16'
Your thinking is probably anything but organized, and you could find it hard to study or exercise any real mental discipline. You run on and on in the word department, finding it difficult to limit yourself to the message at hand. Others may end up setting limits for you. Your free-form approach to conversations lacks responsibility and could result in confrontations with authorities. In other words, what you say could get you in trouble. At the very least, others find much of what you say and think impractical.
Mercury Opposition Saturn 07°00'
You have unusual relationships, perhaps a number of them, and not always of long duration. You are creative when it comes to partnerships or lovers and seem to establish unusual and different relationships.
Uranus Opposition Ascendant 07°13'
Your tendency to compromise and settle for less than you dreamed can be a problem. Given the opportunity, you may choose the path of least resistance, willing to bypass some of the things you always wanted in favor of expediency. Career moves must be given special attention. Tension results when you ignore your own desires (the things you need and want) and take a course of action, job, career, or whatever that can never satisfy. Or worse, you may find yourself in a job that is compromising.
Jupiter Square Neptune 07°45'
Your insistence on being different and the general nonconformity you display often result in your being cut off from those who would otherwise support you. You indulge your cravings for independence, which often creates a lot of emotional tension. Autonomy at the expense of your home and surroundings is nothing new for you. Your attempts to be different often end up in hurt feelings, yours and those of someone who would care for you.
