Just a quick heads-up that a post concerning the natal chart of South Yemen and the Oct 12, 2000 bombing of the USS Cole is now published and includes some details on President Obama's address today which began at 4:35 pm est and ended at 4:47 pm with the Pentagon's natal ASC rising (15Can37; the *Pentagon is currently experiencing a Uranus-to-natal-Venus transit when unusual alliances are formed and interactions with others are unpredictable and/or erratic.)
The President spoke today during an Hour of Mercury, good for announcements and orations, yet with Mercury Rx 10Cap17 one has to wonder especially since Mercury was setting at 4:35 pm, with tr Uranus conjunct tr Mc '24Pisces' and Mr. Obama's natal Mars at Ic, the Foundation of the Matter. (He did sound more than a little peeved, didn't he? His agency directors are to be 'held responsible' in future, he said.)
Having his natal Mars at Ic means that US natal Neptune was there as well, so we might infer a midpoint picture or two (any, all, or none may apply):
Mars/Neptune = tr Mc: success in pushing your ideas; integrating the message of your dreams to help overcome your anger; a state of weakness.
Mars/Neptune = tr Uranus: unusual stamina to speed up the outcome of activities; an unconventional approach to forcing idealism or socialism on others; a noisy rebellion against aggravating visions forced by others; a crisis; sudden weaknesses suddenly emerge; an accident. (Munkasey; Ebertin.)
Well, Mr. Obama ended his address with the speculator duo, Jupiter and Neptune, in 8th house of Shared Resources and Debt so his remark that more money would now be spent on explosive detectors makes sense...and another bottomless money pit opens underneath US taxpayers.
NPR has the text of the President's address in case you missed it.
