Chart of Barack Obama using the 7:24 pm birth time on his certificate of birth. Note the planets just above the eastern horizon (the ascendant) on the left side, which oppose his Sun. Damocles, an unusual solar system object (really, a long-period comet) has the second tightest aspect, at a third of a degree exactitude. (Centaur planet Chariklo is more precisely opposed, to 2/60ths of a degree.) His Moon is in the 4th house conjunct Nessus and Hylonome. The eclipse mark on the right side of the chart indicates where a total solar eclipse precisely aspected his descendent in 1999, opening the way for his political career.
