Who is Hillary Clinton? A solar Scorpion (10/26/47) with Gemini rising which would account for the duality of her voting history? Or a Scorpio with three planets, Chiron and her Ascendant in that powerful sign? Was she born around 8 p.m. like she said or in the morning like her mother said? We do know that, either way, her moon is in late Pisces and that she has the three malevolent planets, Mars, Pluto and Saturn in born to rule Leo. Barack Obama (8/4/61) is a solar Leo with Scorpio rising and a moon in early Gemini. His natal Pluto and Mars, the co-rulers of Scorpio, are in Virgo, the sign that Saturn, the planet that governs the government, is currently transiting. The Hillary with Scorpio rising has the same degree of Virgo on her midheaven as Obamas Pluto, plus her progressed Mars is also there. Could it be that when push comes to shove they are basically the same creature?
Aries: Mar. 20 - Apr. 19
Make nice with the neighbors, the siblings, too. If youre feeling defensive - a distinct possibility while your usually ballsy Mars ruler is retrograde in domesticated Cancer-you might think theyre ganging up on you. Perhaps they are simply bombarding you with too much attention and holiday cheer? Since Mercury, the sun and Jupiter in Capricorn are opposing the rarely vulnerable Warrior god, the issues that cropped up between you might come to a head, especially around the Cancer-Capricorn full moon Sunday.
Taurus: Apr. 20 - May 20
Its possible for the Bull to bypass the tension generated by a long-standing financial matter that is testing some of the values you hold dear, or used to. Focus instead on a significant other and the heights you imagine can be reached when your romantic Venus ruler in your Scorpio marriage house opens up to Neptunes exquisite aesthetic this weekend. Better to make divine art and love then to quibble about whom owes what to whom. But if youve been champing at the bit for a fight this would be a good time.
Gemini: May 21 - Jun. 20
As we approach the winter solstice and the Cancer full moon, remember that, thanks to your Mercury ruler, you are currently the leader of the pack of Capricorn planets. What actually happens to you and what you sense is in the wind is what the rest of us will experience before the New Year. Whether you broadcast the news or keep it between you and a partner is one of those choices Gemini Twins are constantly asked to make. Just know that any friction you encounter Saturday can be resolved on Christmas Day when Mercury and Saturn align in pragmatic earth signs.
Cancer: Jun. 21 - Jul. 22
The sensitive Moon Child is liable to overreact to other peoples vibrations this week. Try to have an emotional cushion, e.g., a clear-headed co-workers advice, to fall back on if the forces gathering in your Capricorn complement zero in on cocky Mars, currently retrograde in your sign. However, because the Warrior isnt looking ahead, launching any sort of offense might not be your best defense. Add the annual Cancer full moon so close to the solstice points on Sunday and June Crabs may feel that they are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Not so much for July birth dates.
Leo: Jul. 23 - Aug. 22
A legitimate power trip is yours for the taking. Just be sure that you direct the enormous infusion of planetary energy bestowed on you for the good. On one hand, the merger of your sun ruler and manipulative Pluto can bring about a resurrection of sorts or it could drag you down to the Hell Pluto presides over. On the other hand, the suns conjunction with magnanimous Jupiter the day after the winter solstice may blow the best of intentions way out of proportion. By Christmas Eve, macho Mars and the Cancer full moon insist that a decision be made.
Virgo: Aug. 23 - Sep. 22
Since your Mercury ruler is leading the herd of Capricorn goats, you might get news of whats coming up for Christmas week. Check out the possible impact these events could have on your cultural heritage and your career success. Like a two-boxed set, this time of year those areas of your life are inexorably tied together. In your thank you speech, be sure to acknowledge Mercury for sensing which way the Winds of War are blowing. The Messenger confronts militant Mars in family-oriented Cancer on Christmas Eve. A peaceful overture follows.
Libra: Sep. 23 - Oct. 22
Play the peace card. There are enough conflicting viewpoints currently on the table, especially among the Goats, Rams and Crabs. The cardinal energy of Libra neednt contribute to the holiday tension. Better to identify with your affectionate Venus ruler and the pleasures you can bring to the other Libras in your life, the Aquarians and Pisces, too. Although romantic Venus is in your Scorpio money house, the gifts that resonate will reflect the ephemeral values you treasure. Still, a gemstone couldnt hurt.1
