PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA
It was a huge day in history when Barack Obama became the President of the U.S.A.
There are many different thoughts about President Obama and a lot of conspiracy theories.
I actually enjoy conspiracy theories because theres a real attempt to look -'outside the box' and this is something we have to do, not to create or instigate trouble in our lives but to enlighten and enrich our lives. However, there is always a 'but' because we have to also really ask ourselves what we truly believe rather than just take on another opinion. I use the tarot for such occasions to guide my thinking as much as possible. For me, President Obama has made history.
I dont want to start talking about racial problems or racial prejudice which showed its ugly head when the President was inaugurated but what I do want to say is that it is my belief and always has been, that 'MAN IS EQUAL'. I dont see the rainbow in people should be a problem I think different cultures are WONDERFUL - as each culture brings interesting and new things to us all. President Obama has set history straight by becoming President - it is just a title that he will hold for a while as any other President has - but I am hoping that his reign in office will do something positive for the American people and for the world.
I will put my very brief look at the Presidents tarot below. Im sure I could have written more but here anyway were my findings and when I wrote them and please forgive my rambling style!! The insights will cover Past Present and Future as tarot always seems to do this and also please bear in mind that Tarot cannot be claimed as 100 % accurate though certainly some points are very likely to forge through as positive.
5 NOV TAROT Barrack Obama
Nov 5, 2008, 12:51
I thought I would ask tarot if Barack Obama would be good for Society and the world.
On doing so I received the page of pentacles.
This man is going to help the youth. He believes in bringing youthful qualities to life and generates a new kind of spirit towards determination and working to succeed. He holds a pentacle in his hand and gives messages to the people showing that the world is in your own hands - materialism is in your own hands and you yourselves should use studiousness and be determined and work hard to achieve your goals.
I do not see anything nasty about this card in respect of intentions for the country.
I see this man is dependable and will give a feeling of trust in him. He also will talk about realistic goals, how to really make the most of your life and it may all be down to basic principles.
The promotion of this card is on him, hence his new job as President.
I see him surveying the materialism in the land. He stands there with his staff with the pentacle on top and gives his messages.
He manifests the kingdom . I do not believe this man should be labelled an antichrist - he is no such thing. This man brings something forward about 'senses' - the earth is in his card. He is a man of the earth, a nature man - human in his love of physical joy and embraces the vegetation of the world.
His personality is described as conscientious in studies & financial affairs. Determined, articulate, diligent, patient, serious, and moody.
He is going to change economics - he is going to effect the financial affairs of the americans and address the balance. He is also going to concentrate on health issues and what matters there.
Regarding Health, he has to look after his own. I say this as with this card is an unexpected 'turn of health'.
He is actually very interested in people..he is there to listen - this President has listened and he has a whole idea regarding finance, health, material matters and the physical world and he will have such an impact his name will echo from the hills - he is the Rose in the Palace...a breath of not just fresh air, but intoxicating perfume that acts as a pied piper and works upon the senses delighting people and making them feel in love with the world again.
With this man I get a 'fair child and a letter'.
I feel this man will move patiently and methodically towards the change he has promised. He has the values and the spirit of what should have been, what we should have been what we should have remembered about values and principles and he is going to remind us of them in fresh youthful ways. He is the dark page as in colour that works hard, studiously, studying mentally, bringing messages to those in the land.
Barack Obama... is going to be saying things that have been long forgotten, things we should have remembered....what he says attacks the material consumeristic world...but what he tells us makes sense.
He will make sense of the insensible.
Do not bring war to this man...what you see is not what you get...do not underestimate the power of principle - principle must rule over materialism. He holds materialism in his hand..what is he going to do with it.. will he crush it, throw it away, look at it, behold it?....
He holds the key to materialism, through this man, materialistic principles can change. He holds the pentacle and knows where the money should go. He contemplates it carefully.
He wears a winged rams head with a crest and a sheepskin.
Soft on the outside - determined on the inside. Aries is for War...he walks with his sheepskin and promotes peace. The rams head is on his head..his mental thinking...he has a war in his head to create peace. His war is to promote peace.
The winged Ramshead reminds me of flying war objects..his cloak is peace..he wishes to promote the peace and remove the flying war objects.
I feel innocence - I feel Green nature/lands - love of the land.
I feel that Barack Osama is going to promote growing your own food..I see tilling of the soil that he has surveyed in that page that appeared. He is looking at that land and thinking of the best ways to cultivate it. Vegetation/nature are strong words in his card and i feel he is going to teach the American people and people of the world to be resourceful and to stop wasteful spending. That is what I feel his aim will be.
He will also be looking at distant lands and what is in the ground there..
we had him as an earth person..someone who is an earth person is respectful of the terrain - they live and breath the terrain and like to feel the soil under their feet....I cannot see that Barack Obama is going to allow abuse of the land/soil/ground - he has plans in mind to allow what is natural be natural and that will mean the end of greed and the intelligence/creativity of other things people should be thinking of instead of waste and ignorance...he may feel it is important to put money into land to help it to grow - but for the right reasons...he is studying the pentacle...he knows the value of many things and he intends to use that value wisely.
TAROT Barrack Obama

What I see from this card is that President Obama has no intentions of being defeated in his new position. However, I do see there are certain things that are a problem.
For one thing, you can see by this card that he is fighting a bit of a losing battle with some people. Make no mistake, he does want to change things that is his wish, but, he cannot effect those changes overnight and it is something he has come to see very clearly indeed. He may think things should be different but he wont be able to change the entire system as quickly as he had hoped. But this card tells us that slander and infamy is avoided. What this shows us is that President Obama knows that he has to make sure his behaviour is impeccable at all times. So basically what he thinks will have to be what HE thinks alone.....there are definately people around him, some in particular, that he might actually have some mixed feelings about....
he will have those thoughts and feelings hovering, but somehow he knows that its not a good thing perhaps to voice any of them. So this man has got to be smart. So, I feel this man will pick his battles and be very astute about what is going on around him.
There will be times when he is away from his loved ones, or indeed this card could suggest his wife has to be away from him...not everything will be hunky dory in the Obama household in private affairs - there does appear to be internal and external conflict...I dont know why I think this but Michelle may not be happy about a few things. As a Presidents wife at all times she will have to support her husband though I do feel a little sorry for the situation as I feel that they need to keep it together when times get tough.
The one thing they must both do is ACCEPT REALITY...the reality and responsibility of being a US President particularly in respect to OBAMA is, that a new world opens, with this new world come things that perhaps ordinary citizen is not aware of. I hope they can cope with it alll
We the people are not inside the whitehouse world, their is a certain amount of guilt in the Presidency. Not that Obama has done anything wrong, but the knowledge can create guilt. Im sure the President knows that he has to be a very circumspect person in the future.
I know that this card can give an image of the GREAT PRETENDER....yes, its likely that Obama will have to fullfill this role in some ways, but I ask you not to blame him...he knows what he truly wants to do. Im hoping that it is for the good of all....
I think the one thing President Obama has to be careful of is with the public.
The problem is he has his ideas and they mean a deep thing to him, but sometimes its a mistake to convert everyone to your way of thinking...sometimes the people DONT WANT to be converted...I dont envy him his role, and I think he means well, but he has to understand that some people 'dont go together' no matter how heartfelt any thoughts are....
I see a bit of crisis with Michelle as she may grow bitter about something..They need eventually to make a deal in their partnership ...basically what I would be saying is ....Look, its the job, I dont make all the rules...and its going to be like this...as long as we two know what we really feel, we are just going to have to live with it.
Hopefully, things will work out...but I will have another look in time.
President Obama must not try to step on too many changes too quickly - people dont like to be juggled around to accept new concepts without at least having a good chew over it...hope he remembers this.
Just 36 minutes ago there is a report that Barrack Obama is removing troops from Iraq.
Obama setting date for Iraq troop pullout
By BEN FELLER – 36 minutes ago
and I remember Barracks tarot and the fact that he was going to remove the weapons of war - I also felt he was going to do a lot regarding food and his policies have begun to operate on injecting cash to farmers and getting things GROWING which is something that is very passionate to him and his love of the land.
I feel that grow your own, is also going to be part of Barracks reign but we shall see about this as time goes along. I feel many Americans are going to be going down this route.
Producing food is definately something that will be very important and encouraging people in this way also.
So that's how she tones those arms! Michelle Obama starts digging her White House vegetable garden

THE PRESIDENTS SPEECH.
Obama Inaugural Address
20th January 2009
My fellow citizens:
I stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. I thank President Bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition.
Forty-four Americans have now taken the presidential oath. The words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. Yet, every so often the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. At these moments, America has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because We the People have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents.
So it has been. So it must be with this generation of Americans.
That we are in the midst of crisis is now well understood. Our nation is at war, against a far-reaching network of violence and hatred. Our economy is badly weakened, a consequence of greed and irresponsibility on the part of some, but also our collective failure to make hard choices and prepare the nation for a new age. Homes have been lost; jobs shed; businesses shuttered. Our health care is too costly; our schools fail too many; and each day brings further evidence that the ways we use energy strengthen our adversaries and threaten our planet.
These are the indicators of crisis, subject to data and statistics. Less measurable but no less profound is a sapping of confidence across our land - a nagging fear that America's decline is inevitable, and that the next generation must lower its sights.
Today I say to you that the challenges we face are real. They are serious and they are many. They will not be met easily or in a short span of time. But know this, America - they will be met.
On this day, we gather because we have chosen hope over fear, unity of purpose over conflict and discord.
On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.
We remain a young nation, but in the words of Scripture, the time has come to set aside childish things. The time has come to reaffirm our enduring spirit; to choose our better history; to carry forward that precious gift, that noble idea, passed on from generation to generation: the God-given promise that all are equal, all are free, and all deserve a chance to pursue their full measure of happiness.
In reaffirming the greatness of our nation, we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of short-cuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted - for those who prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things - some celebrated but more often men and women obscure in their labor, who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom.
For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled across oceans in search of a new life.
For us, they toiled in sweatshops and settled the West; endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth.
For us, they fought and died, in places like Concord and Gettysburg; Normandy and Khe Sahn.
Time and again these men and women struggled and sacrificed and worked till their hands were raw so that we might live a better life. They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction.
This is the journey we continue today. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no less productive than when this crisis began. Our minds are no less inventive, our goods and services no less needed than they were last week or last month or last year. Our capacity remains undiminished. But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions - that time has surely passed. Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America.
For everywhere we look, there is work to be done. The state of the economy calls for action, bold and swift, and we will act - not only to create new jobs, but to lay a new foundation for growth. We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. We will restore science to its rightful place, and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's quality and lower its cost. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age. All this we can do. And all this we will do.
Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions - who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their memories are short. For they have forgotten what this country has already done; what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose, and necessity to courage.
What the cynics fail to understand is that the ground has shifted beneath them - that the stale political arguments that have consumed us for so long no longer apply. The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works - whether it helps families find jobs at a decent wage, care they can afford, a retirement that is dignified. Where the answer is yes, we intend to move forward. Where the answer is no, programs will end. And those of us who manage the public's dollars will be held to account - to spend wisely, reform bad habits, and do our business in the light of day - because only then can we restore the vital trust between a people and their government.
Nor is the question before us whether the market is a force for good or ill. Its power to generate wealth and expand freedom is unmatched, but this crisis has reminded us that without a watchful eye, the market can spin out of control - and that a nation cannot prosper long when it favors only the prosperous. The success of our economy has always depended not just on the size of our Gross Domestic Product, but on the reach of our prosperity; on the ability to extend opportunity to every willing heart - not out of charity, but because it is the surest route to our common good.
As for our common defense, we reject as false the choice between our safety and our ideals. Our Founding Fathers, faced with perils we can scarcely imagine, drafted a charter to assure the rule of law and the rights of man, a charter expanded by the blood of generations. Those ideals still light the world, and we will not give them up for expedience's sake. And so to all other peoples and governments who are watching today, from the grandest capitals to the small village where my father was born: know that America is a friend of each nation and every man, woman, and child who seeks a future of peace and dignity, and we are ready to lead once more.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with the sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
We are the keepers of this legacy. Guided by these principles once more, we can meet those new threats that demand even greater effort - even greater cooperation and understanding between nations. We will begin to responsibly leave Iraq to its people, and forge a hard-earned peace in Afghanistan. With old friends and former foes, we’ll work tirelessly to lessen the nuclear threat, and roll back the specter of a warming planet. We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defense, and for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.
For we know that our patchwork heritage is a strength, not a weakness. We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus - and non-believers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from every end of this Earth; and because we have tasted the bitter swill of civil war and segregation, and emerged from that dark chapter stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.
To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect. To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the West - know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.
To the people of poor nations, we pledge to work alongside you to make your farms flourish and let clean waters flow; to nourish starved bodies and feed hungry minds. And to those nations like ours that enjoy relative plenty, we say we can no longer afford indifference to the suffering outside our borders; nor can we consume the world's resources without regard to effect. For the world has changed, and we must change with it.
As we consider the road that unfolds before us, we remember with humble gratitude those brave Americans who, at this very hour, patrol far-off deserts and distant mountains. They have something to tell us, just as the fallen heroes who lie in Arlington whisper through the ages. We honor them not only because they are guardians of our liberty, but because they embody the spirit of service; a willingness to find meaning in something greater than themselves. And yet, at this moment - a moment that will define a generation - it is precisely this spirit that must inhabit us all.
For as much as government can do and must do, it is ultimately the faith and determination of the American people upon which this nation relies. It is the kindness to take in a stranger when the levees break, the selflessness of workers who would rather cut their hours than see a friend lose their job which sees us through our darkest hours. It is the firefighter's courage to storm a stairway filled with smoke, but also a parent's willingness to nurture a child, that finally decides our fate.
Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends - honesty and hard work, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism - these things are old. These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history. What is demanded then is a return to these truths. What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility - a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation, and the world, duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task.
This is the price and the promise of citizenship.
This is the source of our confidence - the knowledge that God calls on us to shape an uncertain destiny.
This is the meaning of our liberty and our creed - why men and women and children of every race and every faith can join in celebration across this magnificent mall, and why a man whose father less than sixty years ago might not have been served at a local restaurant can now stand before you to take a most sacred oath.
So let us mark this day with remembrance, of who we are and how far we have traveled. In the year of America's birth, in the coldest of months, a small band of patriots huddled by dying campfires on the shores of an icy river. The capital was abandoned. The enemy was advancing. The snow was stained with blood. At a moment when the outcome of our revolution was most in doubt, the father of our nation ordered these words be read to the people:
"Let it be told to the future world...that in the depth of winter, when nothing but hope and virtue could survive...that the city and the country, alarmed at one common danger, came forth to meet [it]."
America. In the face of our common dangers, in this winter of our hardship, let us remember these timeless words. With hope and virtue, let us brave once more the icy currents, and endure what storms may come. Let it be said by our children's children that when we were tested we refused to let this journey end, that we did not turn back nor did we falter; and with eyes fixed on the horizon and God's grace upon us, we carried forth that great gift of freedom and delivered it safely to future generations.
Thank you. God bless you and God bless the United States of America.
