Obama or Romney?


Planets Will Align To Create Election Day Havoc

With only hours left until what may be the closest presidential election in years, you'd be hard-pressed to find a political pundit who is willing to predict a winner. Yet while the Earthly polls say the race between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is too close to call, astrologers say the planets above us may have the answer.

A recent survey by the non-partisan astrology website found that astrologers are reading very different signs in the heavens.

31 top astrologers say President Obama's astrological chart predicts that he will be the winner of the 2012 election, compared to 14 who say that Mitt Romney's chart predicts he will win.

However, a number of them believe the race is far too close to predict yet. Even worse, the planets are set to align in a way they have never done on an election day, possibly causing major chaos at the polls.

At 6 p.m. on election day, Mercury is set to enter its retrograde phase, where it will appear to move backward in the sky. To an astrologer that's big news.

"Mercury is THE planet of politics and elections, given its association with things like communication, calculation, debates, controversies, oratory, etc.," writes astrologer Chris Brennan. "In some instances elections that occur during Mercury retrograde periods have problems surrounding these areas."

The last time an election ocurred during Mercury's retrograde was in 2000, when George W. Bush narrowly beat Al Gore after a controversial court decision.

"If the Mercury retrograde is as bad as it was in 2000, then there's an important target period, about three weeks after Election Day, until we think that things will be resolved," Brennan said.
