DENVER, May 22 (UPI) -- Seven astrologers participating in a panel at the United Astrology Conference in Denver predicted Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., will be elected president.
The panelists said a Saturn-Jupiter conjunction spelling change predicts a win for Obama, a Leo, in November, The Denver Post reported Thursday.
"Obama's chart and the United States' chart are very much alike," said panelist Sandra-Leigh Serio. "From an astrological standpoint, he's a man of destiny. (John) McCain also has a strong connection to the U.S. chart."
However, another of the panelists, Shelley Ackerman, told the Post the position of Neptune in January could mean Obama would have trouble taking office even if he wins the election.
Serio warned the panel was "doing this in the shadows of Mercury and Neptune -- this might not have any validity at all in a few months," the newspaper report said.
