The current astrological chart is a talisman of the Moon from the encyclopedic rare book of astrological magic, the Picatrix. The Picatrix says:

Image of the Moon. From the images of the Moon make the form of a man with the head of a bird holding up a [staff or scepter] and in his hand holding a branch in bloom, in the hour of the Moon with the Moon rising in her exaltation [Taurus], and whoever carries this image on a journey will not be tired no matter where they go.

Picatrix Book II, chapter 10, Translation by Christopher Warnock
We are lucky that our talented artist and noted ceremonial magician, Nigel Jackson will be preparing this image for this election. Members of my discussion group Spiritus Mundi will receive information about how to obtain this image to make their own talisman once it is finished! Join now as once the election is past, the image will not be available.
Our election chart, for 7:40 pm EST, on December 12, 2005 at Cleveland Park, a Washington, D.C. neighborhood, follows the election closely, but not exactly. The Moon is exalted in Taurus and it is Moon day (Monday) and the planetary hour of the Moon.
The Moon is in the 10th house, however, rather than rising. This is the second most powerful position after being in the Ascendant.

An additional factor that is necessary for the Moon, though not mentioned in Picatrix, is that the Moon is waxing, as she is here.
The Picatrix emphasizes the importance of the Moon stating that,

And draw your attention to the Moon in all works [of magic] as if it were the chief of all the other planets because it brings about evident manifestations and judgments [?] in all things in the world and it pertains to the power of generation and corruption and she is the mediatrix [female intermediary] in the advance of your work, receiving the influences and impressions of the stars and planets and pouring them out to the inferiors of this world.

Wherefore draw your attention to that which we have said before concerning her [being] fortunate and infortunate, increasing [waxing] and diminishing [waning] in light, because after separating from the Sun she secures his strength then she moves to be in a sextile, square, trine and opposition aspect. And she receives strength from the stars and planets when she is connected by the aspects we have mentioned before.

And if you find the Moon increasing in light then her strength and power is good and useful in all works to bring about increase and if you find the light [of the Moon] diminishing it is suitable and harmonious for all works in which you wish diminution.

Picatrix, Book II, Chapter 3. Translated by Christopher Warnock, Esq.
