Hi Charlene, Surfer Bob, again
If the info I'm about to provide is correct, apparently the Moon VOC also affects the presidential election and the inauguration ceremony (NOTE: I'm recalling this info from an astrological publication I read more than 10 years ago).
Franklin Roosevelt was inaugurated for his 4th term (1/20/1945)during a Moon VOC. He didn't get to really start his 4th term, because he died from a cerebral hemorrhage (stroke) on 4/12/1945, while vacationing in Warm Springs, GA. John F. Kennedy's 1/20/1961 inauguration occured during a Moon VOC. Unfortunately, his only term in office was cut short, when he was assassinated in Dallas, TX on 11/22/1963.
Then, there's Richard Nixon's 2nd presidential term, and it seems as if Nixon suffered an astrological "Triple Whammy". First, Nixon's nomination/acceptance during the 1972 Republican convention, occured during a Moon VOC (just like 2012, the '72 Republican convention was also in Florida). Second, the 1972 presidential election, also occured during a Moon VOC and of course, Nixon won. Finally, Nixon's 2nd inauguration of 1/20/1973, was during a Moon VOC. Sadly, because of Nixon's involvement in the Watergate scandal, loss of political support, and near certain impeachment due to the scandal, he resigned the presidency in disgrace on 8/9/1974 (aptly enough, on the 29th anniversary of the dropping the atom bomb on Nagasaki, Japan in 1945--Saturn return?).
Barak Obama was a victim of the Moon VOC during his presidential inauguration of 1/20/2009, but it seems that he dodged an astrological bullet. Yes, the Moon was VOC during Obama's inauguraion, however, because Chief Justice John Roberts incorrectly administered the presidential oath of office--and because Obama feared that the blunder could be used as a legal challenge to his presidency--Obama had Chief Justice Roberts re-administer the oath of office the next day (and this time the Moon was not VOC).
It looks like the Moon VOC can affect just about every aspect of a presidential campaign/election, and sometimes, depending on other astrological factors, one can get lucky despite it. Furthermore, I wouldn't be surprised if some of our worst presidents (as well as those who may have suffered life tragedies) may have completely avoided Moon VOC's during their time in office. Bottom line--especially with Mercury going retrograde on Election day this year--this election is going to be quite interesting. So in the words of the immortal actress Bette Davis, "Fasten your seatbelts, it's gonna be a bumpy ride".
