The Barack Obama's Birth Certificate was shown on my.barackobama.com. The certificate shows his birth time was at 7:24 PM on August 4, 1961. The birth place is at Honolulu, Hawaii, which longitude is W157.52 degree. 7:24 PM is the Hawaii Standard Time of west longitude 150 degree time.  After longitude time adjustment (1 degree is 4 minutes), the local birth time becomes 6:55 PM. If we consider about the true solar time, the true local birth time is about 6:49 PM. 1961 is not a daylight saving time year. We assume the birth certificate is real, the correct birth chart is

Barack Obama was born on the Earth Snake Female Metal day in the Wooden Sheep month of the Metal Cow Year. The Day Stem (Day Master) represents the person. Therefore, the Brown Earth Female MetalFemale Earthrepresents Obama himself. Snake is in Fire group, and also contains Earth. Sheep and Cow are in Earth group. Fire is the Supporting element of Earth. Fire and Earth together are stronger than all other elements. That means Earth is very strong in the birth chart. We can say that Obama has a strong personality and good health.

When Cow, Snake and Chicken meet in the birth chart, they have very strong attraction relationship into Metal. This makes Day Master Female Soil Female Earth weak. The only element to support Day Master is the Sheep. But the strong Metal relationship also weakens the Sheep Earth. Plus, Sheep Earth is under controlled by Female Wood on its top. Without strong Fire supporting element in the birth chart, Day Master Female Soil Earth becomes too weak. In Chinese Astrology, this birth chart is called a "Fake Extremely Weak" case. Water, Metal and Wood are the lucky elements. Water is money, Wood is career and Metal is reputation to president Obama. Fire and Earth are unlucky elements. Fire represents bad reputation and Earth represents friends, siblings, coworkers and spending money.

Pig and Rat are in Water group. Monkey and Chicken are in Metal group. Rabbit and Tiger are in Wood group. Snake and Horse are in Fire group. Therefore, Rat and Pig bring him money. Monkey and Female Soil Chicken make him famous. Rabbit and Tiger give him career power. Snake and Horse bring him bad luck.

Cow Earth, Snake Fire and Chicken Metal relationship in the Natal Birth Chart tells us that Obama is good at bringing friends (Earth) and supporter (Fire) together into popularity (Metal). He always has many ideas in his mind, because Metal is something out of Earth (Obama). All elements and animals in his birth chart are female (Yin). That means he trends to keep some secrets from the public. The strong Metal (reputation) makes stronger Water (money). Wood is not strong enough, career doesn't bring him too much pressure. His birth chart is afraid of Fire - especially the Horse. Horse can bring Snake and Sheep together into strong Fire relationship to destroy the Metal relationship from Chicken, Snake and Cow combination. Luckily, he had suffered that miserable time during the first Major Cycle Wooden Horse before 1981 (Age 19).

Obama's Chinese Astrology 10-Year Major Cycles

Obama's birth chart shows earning money is easier to him than stepping up career position. The Wood career appearing his Major 10-year Cycles is from 2001 to 2020. 2008 is Male Earth Rat year, there is no Wood in three. It wasn't easy for him to become the 44th US president. Male Earth and Female Water in the Birth Chart have Attraction relationship into Fire. Obama had to fight for the bad reputation from Fire and spent Water money to win the presidential race, because Water can help Wood grow.

2009 Chinese Astrology for Barack Obama

Female SoilFemale Soil
2009 is Earth Cow Year
Cow is in the Earth Group
Earth is the same element as the Day Master. Cow is Earth too. The Earth is an unlucky element to Obama. Therefore 2009 is a very tough year to him. Earth represents Obama's coworkers - his cabinet or other leaders in the world. That implies his administration and foreign affairs will bring him trouble. Earth is related to land. The crisis in the Real Estate market is still a big issue. The homeland security still needs lots of debate for the solution.

The argument, expansion and competition let Obama become a stronger determination person. When a man has a stronger personality, his marriage life will be impacted. However, Cow still contain a little bit Water. Water represents woman to Obama. Hopefully, he can spend that little time for his family. Another bad news is that his money luck is poor in 2009 comparing year 2008. Or he will have less achievements in 2009 than 2008.

When Cow meets Chicken and Snake in the Birth Chart, they will have a very strong attraction relationship into Metal. This tells us that his administration will deliver many proposal and make him famous.
