Tim Kaine

I don’t have Mike Pence’s birth time so I can’t do an accurate chart for him. I do have one for Tim Kaine, however. Before the debate tonight let’s look at the chart of the man who wants to be our next Vice President. Like Secretary Clinton, Senator Kaine has his Sun in the twelfth house. This is normally not a “normal” placement for a politician because it builds in a natural reserve and even secretiveness. Both Democratic candidates prefer the work instead of the “smoozing” aspect of the work. Senator Kaine benefits from Mercury conjuncting his Sun which gives

Donald Trump – Deeply Embedded in His South Node

As a karmic astrologer the Nodal axis of a person’s chart is fascinating – that is the pattern of the North and South Nodes. The South Node tells me about their karmic past – what traits do they bring with them in this lifetime that are memories of past behaviors.  While there is nothing wrong with our past incarnations, of course, our goal in this life should be to grow beyond them, learn new lessons and move forward. Why reincarnate if you are going to do the same things repeatedly? Donald Trump’s South Node, Sagittarius in the fourth house, indicates

September 26 Debates – Hillary

If you are a student of Astrology or this blog, you know that this a political year like no other. With Pluto, the change agent, in Capricorn the sign which rules authority and government, nothing is impossible. Sadly, we are seeing drastic changes to our political structure and none for the best. On September 26, 2016 will see the debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. This is a very important debate as Trump seems to be climbing in the polls and Hillary literally stumbled. For the most part, Hillary has some good signs in her chart for debate time. The

Ted Williams and his “Living” Head

On August 30, 1918, Ted Williams was born. I admit I didn’t know much about his career as a kid. I was a child of the Mantel-Marris era. In fact, the only thing I knew about him for a long time was that he had that some of this children had his body posthumously frozen and stored at an Arizona cryonics facility. There is much controversy surrounding the procedure which pitted his children against one another. Leaving the emotions behind, I had to look at the astrology of a man whose body would have such a bizarre ending…or should I

To the Young Woman on the Far Right and Far Left

Pluto is in Capricorn – change in government can go either way – up or down – backwards or forwards. It is up to us to keep progress in motion. We now have a major party nominee for President of the United States who is a female but this isn’t about one election. It is about the progress and history that has led to this moment. It is a history that I fear you are forgetting and a progress you are failing to push forward. This is a fight spanning from Mary Wollensteincraft and Abigail Adams to we loud- mouthed

Don’t Underestimate Trump or Pluto.

Last week I examined the chart of Donald Trump illustrating his North Node desire to make an intellectual (and I use that term advisedly) impact on society. (Gemini North Node in the 10th House.) When I place his chart alongside that of the United States I see that his Uranus placement is identical to that of the USA. Both have Uranus in the 10th house. A sign of a desire to stoke revolution and change in the public arena. He is clearly striking a nerve with those who are “tea party revolutionaries” and want to start over. Don’t overlook his

Donald Trump – So Loud

I hate the idea of giving any more energy to the train wreck that is the Donald Trump presidential campaign but look at his chart I must. That he has Leo rising with aggressive Mars, also in fiery Leo, sitting on the first house should be of no surprise. His self-centered, egotistical rants touting his ultimate knowledge of all things governmental are clear evidence of the arrogance given by these placements. What I find most interesting is his South Node placement. His South Node Sagitarrius in the Fourth House – meaning he spent a good deal of time gathering information

Bernie: An Accurate Birth Chart?

I am being “hounded” by friends and clients to weigh in on the 2016 election. While I am a political junkie, it is hard to get a good read on the situation mostly because we don’t always have correct birth charts of the candidates. There is still a debate on Hillary Clinton (isn’t there always) as to her time of birth – is it 802 AM or PM? There is a time for Bernie Sanders of 12:27 PM, however, there seems to be no primary source identification so I remain skeptical. Using this chart, we see someone who wants to

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

This week we will again mark the birthday of civil rights legend Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. There are so many interesting things about this chart – Venus, his ruling planet, (it rules his rising sign of Taurus) in the 11th house. He had a natural proclivity toward group leadership. The 11th house is where we come together for social change. Also in his 11th is his Moon and Ceres in Pisces – both signs imbue compassion in a person. It is clear that, even if not on such a grand scale, Dr. King would have been a person involved

The Astrology of Political Action

Asked recently if there is a way to find someone’s propensity for political action in a chart, I had to admit I didn’t really know the answer. Being a Scorpio Sun, a loving the hunt, I started to research the topic and find some interesting information.   While the basics of someone being a leader appears in the number of Cardinal, leadership signs, and placements to the 10th house of career or sixth house of work. With politics, there is more nuance, however. A recent study of more than 400 charts had some interesting results. People with the asteroid Pallas
