Professional astrologer Mark Lerner discussed the 2008 Presidential Election and broke down the birth charts of the four main players: presidential candidates Barack Obama and John McCain, and vice-presidential candidates Joe Biden and Sarah Palin.
According to Lerner, Obama and Biden have "geometric compatibility." This will help Obama pick up on Biden's astrological energies, though a Sun-Mars square may cause some difficulty between the two men, he explained. Lerner called McCain's choice of Palin as a running mate an astrological "grand slam." Palin brings Jupiterian influence to McCain, he said, noting Jupiter as "a planet of success."
While Lerner thinks that astrology cannot predict the future (because of free will and other factors), he offered his forecast for the November 4th election night. If the news media calls the election early, it will favor Obama. If they do not, McCain will most likely win the election. Lerner also explained how astrology charts work, as well as provided his astrological insight into the Federal Reserve, Iran-Israel relations and the Iraq War.
