The special sensation I mentioned intrigued me so I took a look at the chart of the time Obama accepted -- 8:14 PM mountain time, to get a cosmic glimpse.
The midheaven was 26 degrees Sagittarius, in the center of our galaxy. Pluto was 2 degrees away in the 10th. Fiery emotional inspirational power out front.
Neptune and the North Node were in the 12th house adding to the spiritual aspect of the gathering, and Pisces was rising at 23, all contributing to the flow, emotional sensations, and easy music, well paced with a wide variety. Throw in Denver's 29 Sag Venus square Neptune at 29 Pisces and you have quite a poetic convergence. Uranus was conjunct the ascendant describing the collective experience, and the moon was in Leo in the 5th, a perfect night for grand theater. The moon was quincunx Jupiter in Capricorn in the 10th. Leo-Capricorn, regal and dignified. Uranus on the ascendant also shows the more rebellious tone of the speech, and Mercury conjunct Venus square the elevated Pluto speaks of the beauty of the words. And then. By another act of destiny, the news cycle was abruptly taken away, freezing the moment forever without the normal second day destruction. Just amazing. The busy cosmology.
