Meet the Democratic Candidates

 Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton was born October 26, 1947 Chicago, IL.  There are two times given for her birth 8:00 PM and 8:00 AM.  I attended a fund-raising event for Hillary in October 2005.  I asked her what time she was born and she told me 8 PM.  8 AM has appeared in the news.

Clinton has the Sun, Chiron, Venus, and Mercury in Scorpio, the Moon in Pisces; Mars, Pluto, and Saturn in Leo; Jupiter in Sagittarius, Ceres in Taurus, and Uranus in Gemini.  If she was born at 8:00 PM, (the time she told me she was born) she has late Gemini or possibly early Cancer Rising.  If she was born at 8:00 AM, she has Scorpio Rising.

With a significant Scorpio influence, Clinton is intense and all or nothing about whatever she does.  She has a deep, penetrating mind, and is capable of quickly getting to the bottom line on what may be very complicated issues.  She is intuitive about recognizing other people's motivations.  She's good at ferreting out other people's secrets, while keeping her own.

While she is incredibly intelligent, having a preponderance of planets in water signs, Clinton is far more emotional than she may appear to be.  The Moon in Pisces gives her a great deal of compassion and sensitivity for the underdog.  She cares about those in need.

Her Mars, Pluto, Saturn stellium in Leo heighten her determination.  When she wants something, nothing else will do.  This gives her great perseverance.  This combination, plus her Scorpio planets, also gives her a prickly edge.  It's easy for her to lash out if she feels threatened.  Having a long memory, she is not likely to forget a kind deed or an unkind one.

If the 8:00 PM time is accurate, Clinton's Moon is in the tenth house of career, reputation, and public standing.  The Moon represents women in general.  Clinton is the first female candidate for president to be taken seriously.  Her candidacy represents hope for all women in the political arena. 

If the 8:00 PM birth time is accurate, Clinton will run into trouble in her campaign in late 2007 early 2008 when transiting Pluto opposes her Ascendant and squares her Moon.  In February transiting Saturn will oppose her Midheaven.  There will be stiffer competition in the run for the White House than may be apparent earlier in 2007.  Her position with women will not turn out to be as secure as she believed.

If the 8:00 AM birth time is accurate, the January primaries will run smoother. 

 Barack Obama

According to the birth information I have, Barack Obama was born on August 4, 1961 at 1:15 PM in Honolulu, HI.  If this is correct, he has Scorpio Rising; Mercury, the Sun, and Uranus in Leo, Pluto and Mars in Virgo, the Moon in Gemini, Ceres in Taurus, Venus in Cancer, Saturn in Capricorn, and Jupiter in Aquarius.

If this time is correct, Uranus sits very close to Obama's Midheaven, and the North Node, also in Leo, Pluto, Mars are in the tenth house.  The Midheaven and tenth house represent career, reputation, and public esteem.  The Sun and Mercury are also elevated being in the ninth house.  This combination of planets straddling the Midheaven helps Obama to stand out from the pack. 

Uranus represents, among other things, revolution, and Obama's candidacy has been nothing if not revolutionary.  He represents the first AfroAmerican to be taken seriously as a presidential candidate.

His Moon in Gemini, combined with his Leo planets, helps him connect with the public.  This combination gives him charm.  His message of hope and change resonates with the public.  He has the ability to say the right thing at the right time, yet is not afraid to mince words.  His most quoted statement is probably, "I am not opposed to wars, I am opposed to dumb wars." 

Transiting Chiron will oppose Obama's Sun in December and Neptune will sit on his Nadir during January and February.  If there is any "dirt" his opponents can dig up about him, it will come out then.  He will still be immensely popular, but a smear campaign is possible during this timeframe, no matter what the truth is. 

John Edwards

 John Edwards was born June 10, 1953 at 7:02 AM in Seneca, SC.  Edwards has a stellium in Gemini, including the Moon, Jupiter, Sun, and Mars. Mercury, Ceres, Uranus, and the Ascendant are in Cancer, Venus in Taurus, Pluto in Leo, Saturn and Neptune in Libra, Chiron in Capricorn. 

With four celestial bodies in Gemini and three in the twelfth house, it's no wonder that Edwards amassed his fortune as a trial lawyer standing up for the little guy against corporate interests.  His Gemini – Cancer combination gives him the ability to relate to just about anyone.  And he truly lives by home and family values. 

With Uranus on the Ascendant, Edwards is his own person.  His stellium of twelfth house planets make him truly an idealist – and perhaps naïve as well. 

Favorable aspects from Jupiter help Edwards out in the January and February primaries, but his candidacy is likely to run into trouble in late February, March, April, and July.  Mars, which turned Retrograde in November 2007, went over his Ascendant and back into his twelfth house over the coming months.  This will make him more assertive on the campaign trail.  It also warns that he should be on watch for his physical well being as Mars will Retrograde back over his Mercury in Cancer and Mars in Gemini in the twelfth house of "secret enemies."
