MUMBAI—Indian astrologers are predicting Barack Obama will win the presidential election by a comfortable margin, but one warned of potentially life-threatening times ahead for the Democratic candidate.
“Obama is 100 percent in Leo and Leos are not only born leaders but they have a special charm all of their own,” well-known Indian astrologer Bejan Daruwalla told Agence France Presse.
“(Republican candidate) John McCain has good points but he’s nowhere in the picture. He’s miles away. He has been outshadowed by the Leo. He might have been very good in his time but this is not the right time.”
Fellow Mumbai astrologer Raj Kumar Sharma also forecast a clear Obama victory in the Nov. 4 vote—mirroring the latest opinion poll data that suggests the 47-year-old Illinois senator is out in front.
“The circumstances and conjunction of stars are very clearly indicating that John McCain is going to lose this election and Barack Obama is going to win, at least by 10 percent,” he said.
‘I see danger’
But Sharma said he was worried about the weak sun moving into Obama’s chart from April 2010 to January 2011.
“The month from April 5, 2010 to May 16, 2010 is very dangerous for him. I really pray that everything should be all right,” he said.
Asked to elaborate, Sharma added: “I see danger for his life from April 5, 2010. I see the chances of 25 percent of survival. So he should be very careful about his security, about the people working for him.”
To counteract the weak sun, Obama should wear a ruby, he said.
