President Dwight Eisenhower stood out among American presidents for several reasons. Along with Ulysses Grant, he was a president whose popularity as Supreme Commander of victorious Allied military forces after a major war contributed largely to his successful election to the office of President. Also like Grant, he was President during initiation of legislation of legal rights for disfranchised American ethnic minorities. And, like Grant, he was not interested in Political Party politics, and sought to implement policies independent of influence of the political party which endorsed him for office -- an issue which later led to vindictive criticism of Eisenhower as 'naive'. How could someone with the remarkable courage to lead the Allied Military forces to one of the most challenging victories in the history of humanity, and who served as US President be described as 'naive'? Several birth times have been circulated for Eisenhower. A time of 05h10am CST6hW was indicated by a family member, quoting his mother, in an interview for a biography. This seemed to be the most convincing source of times available, and after testing the various times for correlation of natal MC and AS pictures with his life conditions. And rectification shows that it is correct or perhaps one minute later.

This points to a likely birthtime of 05h11 LMT (05h37 CST), but since the house Eisenhower was born in was located only 3 yards (about 3 meters) from a major railroad intersection, per the state museum at his birthplace, I will stick with the 05h10 LMT (05h36 CST) birth time quoted by his mother, as it leaves AS only 1°01' from Zeus, on the edge of being in orb, indicating the birth may have even been a few seconds earlier. Further study of events with directions and transits might yield an even more precise birth time.
Notice how this gives Eisenhower MC and AS pictures so clearly correlating with his life environment and profession and objectives, via the cluster of MC.AS.ZE.KR. And note that while there is more than 1 degree between these points, they are still unified in a cluster since midpoints between them are still within 1 degree of the other factors: MC=AS/KR, AS=MC/ZE, and thus all four factors are pulled together into a cluster. And these are obliquely tied in turn with Mars and Vulkanus, as MA/KR=VU and KR/VU=MC=AS=ZE. From the Brummund Rulebook MA.ZE.KR capable at decision making. outstanding in accomplishments. takes the lead. likes firing devices. assertive. Leader of military troops. Skilled marksman. To carry something out decisively. To create a precedent. Work of an official. To be compelled to perform a major assignment. Government employment orders. To direct state undertakings. Police action. ZE.KR.VU politically competent. industrious. capable of outstanding accomplishments. capable of working independently. goal-conscious. powerful. interested in marksmanship. Authority relating to outstanding accomplishments. Great influence or power in or due to work. Political work. Government power or force. Active marksman. Major powers in conflict.How much more clearly can that describe the life goal and professional achievements and role of Eisenhower?
And yet, we need to look at his Sun axis to understand his vital nature in reflecting and radiating solar energy to others, The following excerpts are from the speech delivered in 1960 by Eisenhower at the end of his 8 years of US presidency, which appears to reflect the energies and values correlating with his Sun axis. They are interspersed with interpretations of planetary pictures in Eisenhower's chart.
"We now stand ten years past the midpoint of a century that has witnessed four major wars among great nations. Three of these involved our own country. Despite these holocausts America is today the strongest, the most influential and most productive nation in the world. Understandably proud of this pre-eminence, we yet realize that America's leadership and prestige depend, not merely upon our unmatched material progress, riches and military strength, but on how we use our power in the interests of world peace and human betterment."
SU.VE.NE.AP indicates that Eisenhower was essentially an empathic man of peace, and he likely fought war truly for the purpose of implementing peace. MO.MA indicates that nonetheless he was willing to fight if needed to maintain it. His mother was reportedly a pacificist, and pictures on his Moon indicate that she was an active pacifist who fought for peace, rather than a passive one.... so he learned this from her. NO.HA.KR.AD Eisenhower lived a military lifestyle much of his life, which means likely confinement to military bases or other officially restricted sites, and involvement with the common people sometimes themselves seeking to raise their dignity and status. MA.SA.UR.PO Eisenhower was self-disciplined and at the same time resourceful and inventive in an inspired way, and he worked for reforms guided by wisdom. MA.JU.ZE.KR correlates with how he found success in military settings.
Further quotes: "Throughout America's adventure in free government, our basic purposes have been to keep the peace; to foster progress in human achievement, and to enhance liberty, dignity and integrity among people and among nations. To strive for less would be unworthy of a free and religious people. Any failure traceable to arrogance, or our lack of comprehension or readiness to sacrifice would inflict upon us grievous hurt both at home and abroad."
Notice how the Sun pictures correlate with his words above. Adventure MA.UR keeping peace SU.VE.NE.AP. Fostering progress MO.MA.UR. Free and religious people MO.UR.PO. Failure due to arrogance HA.KR.
Eisenhower continued: "But each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs -- balance between the private and the public economy, balance between cost and hoped for advantage -- balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably desirable; balance between our essential requirements as a nation and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual; balance between actions of the moment and the national welfare of the future. Good judgment seeks balance and progress; lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration."
Eisenhower's innate drive for peace (SU=VE) and his wise/inspired perceptions relating to action (MO.MA.PO) speak throughout this passage, and he continues to address a critical potential problem that we still today must face in the United States:
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."
Eisenhower's SU=VE=NE=AP also correlate with his great popularity... he continually sought to harmonize with others, as well as a strong empathic sense. At the same time, a look at Eisenhower's Mandala shows how much courage and determination the man had... 3 emphases on Mars, and two on Zeus, an extraordinarily heavily occupied Mandala sector. Perhaps at a later time we will look at his Mandala in further detail. Certainly he would qualify for the title "Peaceful Warrior", and certainly his wisdom would be valued by many Americans at this point in time, were he still alive today.
A final quote from Eisenhower's exit speech: "Another factor in maintaining balance involves the element of time. As we peer into society's future, we -- you and I, and our government -- must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering, for our own ease and convenience, the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow. "We pray that peoples of all faiths, all races, all nations, may have their great human needs satisfied; that those now denied opportunity shall come to enjoy it to the full; that all who yearn for freedom may experience its spiritual blessings; that those who have freedom will understand, also, its heavy responsibilities; that all who are insensitive to the needs of others will learn charity; that the scourges of poverty, disease and ignorance will be made to disappear from the earth, and that, in the goodness of time, all peoples will come to live together in a peace guaranteed by the binding force of mutual respect and love."
Did Eisenhower, a statesman whose drive to serve his country and its people usually overrode any primal biases toward the interests of his own social class, race, or economic cohorts, already see what we needed for a decent life for all the 21st Century?
