Every citizen of America is ready to cast his or her vote and select the leader. Both McCain and Obama are well qualified to become the President of the United States of America
Whom does Vastu predict as the next President of USA ' McCain or Obama ?
Before we analyze the map of USA from the Vastu perspective, let us briefly review the background of the two men who are ready to occupy the most powerful position in the world, The President of USA.
John Sidney McCain
McCain graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1958 and was a naval aviator. During the Vietnam War, he nearly lost his life in the 1967 USS Forrestal fire and was captured by the North Vietnamese and was a prisoner of war until 1973, experiencing torture and wounds that left him with physical restrictions. McCain retired from the Navy in 1981 and moved to Arizona entering politics. Elected to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1982, he served two terms, and was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1986, winning re-election in 1992, 1998, and 2004.
Obama, the first African American to be nominated by a major political party for president is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, where he served as President of the Harvard Law Review. Obama was a community organizer and practiced as a civil rights attorney before serving three terms in the Illinois Senate from 1997 to 2004. He has taught constitutional law at the University of Chicago Law School from 1992 to 2004. He announced his campaign for the U.S. Senate in January 2003. After a primary victory in March 2004, Obama delivered the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in July 2004 and was elected to the Senate in November 2004. Obama announced his presidential campaign in February 2007.
Our analysis is based on the creation of the Peeta Mandala or nine module plan of Vastu. This plan of Vastu is laid over the geographical map of USA. It divides the country into nine parts or modules that identify the four cardinal and four angular directions apart from the central area.
Vastu shastra identifies South, West and Southwest as the strength and stability areas; North and Northeast are the comfort and contentment areas; East is the royalty and political power area; while Southeast and Northwest are the dynamic or movement areas. The central area is the important place of total awareness or Brahmasthana.
The Republican Party nominee John Sidney McCain is the senator from Arizona, which is the strength and stability area of USA. He is vying for the Presidential seat in Washington DC, the comfort and contentment area. His movement is from southwest to northeast. When the module of Arizona is further split into another nine modules, we find that it falls in the south of the inner module denoting Mars or aggressiveness.
The Democratic Party nominee, Obama is the senator from Illinois, which is the total awareness area His movement to the seat of power, the comfort and contentment area is to the east, the royalty and political power area, but it is also dynamic, because of the slight southeast location. When the module of Illinois is further split into another nine modules, we find it falls into the northeast and east of that inner module denoting Jupiter and the Sun denoting wisdom and royalty.
Based on the above Vastu evaluation that integrates locations, directions and related planets with various aspects of power and fame, both the candidates have good Vastu related energies. That is, McCain moves from the area of strength and stability (through sector of aggressiveness) to the area of comfort and contentment, while Obama moves from the area of total awareness (through the sectors of wisdom and royalty) to the area of royalty. This indicates that the well contested political fight will be close. The powerful seat of the President of USA is not a seat of comfort and contentment. Obama moving into the area of royalty and political power coupled with the slight leaning to dynamism seems to give him the Vastu edge over McCain. Therefore, Obama is very likely to be the next President of USA.
However, it will be not a bed of roses for the next President of USA, as his attention will be primarily directed towards the unfriendly nations of USA. The beauty of Vastu is that it not only indicates the likely outcome but also suggests remedial measures which can be used to one's advantage by rectifying imbalances. In the case of McCain, since aggressive Mars is involved in the Arizona module, the support of the younger generation voters can tilt the balance in his favor.
We wish the Senators McCain and Obama all the best. In God We Trust.
