Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: AOC is a Libra Sun with an applying Mars in the 10th house—a go-getter for justice—the scales. She knows how to communicate, see both sides, and debate. In addition, she started a publishing firm, and astrologers know that Libra can be associated with that industry, so no surprise. Her goal was to publish positive images about the Bronx. AOC is an activist as well as former campaign strategist for Bernie Sanders, and we know how well he did in the last election, gathering huge crowds that mainstream media would rarely show. (Jealousy? Fear?) However, young people are tech-savvy, so fans were still able to see what was going on, despite MSM and DNC efforts to shut Bernie out. (More on Bernie later!) AOC knows how to negotiate the new media world, and she loves it. This is evident by her Sagittarius rising, with Venus in 12th. Sag is a sign of the internet and other sharing media. (Think of Trump’s Moon in Sag and how he loves Twitter!) As AOC is ruled by Venus (Libra), her natal Venus shows her strength in social media behind the scenes (12th houses). She also has Mercury in Libra in the 9th house of belief systems, so obviously, her passion for balance and equality for all are topics she will naturally talk about. This Merc squares her focal point of Uranus, Saturn, and Neptune in Capricorn. The Saturn/Neptune connection is famous for being a create-your-own-reality combo. In practical Capricorn, manifesting is a practice well and almost mystically accomplished—except that she’s a realist. People may see her as an idealist because of her Libran egalitarianism, but the Cap trio in her 1st house tells a different story. Uranus in Cap will create a disruption of the traditional, paternalistic society, and things thought to be common structures and organizations. AOC and others of her generation are here to upset old paradigms. This is AOC’s mission, soul-wise. She has paid her dues and knows how to work hard to get results. Her strongest flaw is her Arien Moon, opposing her Libra Merc, so she will have to watch her impulsive tongue. Her pain point is Chiron in Cancer, which are feelings and nurturing. This pain point (Chiron) conjoins Jupiter, so she will find new ways to heal others. Her partners must understand that she is everyone’s mother. Life purpose is given to the group, causes, the people, Aquarian in nature. She is very externally driven.
She currently has Jupiter running across her first house, which is what helped her gained attention, benefits and will keep her in the spotlight. If she had more experience and was of the proper age, she would be fortuitous in running for pres, but it’s just too early right now. However, there is a sudden opportunity that will show at the end of 2019. This opportunity will create a heavy burden but is nevertheless beneficial. She may not know what she’s doing, but she’s a natural, intuitive about what to do. I think she may throw her lot in again with Bernie, who is not destined to win this time, either. There is emotional disappointment for her at the election of 2020, but she has now “found the lane” for her life’s purpose, I hope she won’t give up at that time, despite the hurt. I think, because she has an Aries Moon, she will more than likely be mad, which reflects the Arien warrior spirit, and thus she’ll soldier on. In her early 50’s, she will have a resurgence, which will give her the time, experience, and passion to run for president—or at least be the head of some other endeavor which brings justice and fairness for all. Lady Liberty is coming.
Elizabeth Warren’s life purpose has to do with being a leader and learning how to be independent, something which she seems to have accomplished. An Okie in Massachusetts is a stranger in a strange land, although I’ll admit that Oklahoma, is a water state—Scorpionic, and OKC is a Cancerian city, incorporated on July 15. 1890, but Oklahoma has had its fair share of adventurers, such as Wiley Post, Astronauts Gordon Cooper and Tom Stafford, and writer Will Rogers. Crabs usually don’t like change, but EW is an unusual one: she has Uranus conjoining her Sun, creating constant upset. In Cancer folks, this usually denotes karma prying their crab’s claws off what they’d like to hold onto. This is how she described her home life (with her parents and 3 brothers): “on the ragged edge of the middle class” and “kind of hanging on at the edges by our fingernails”. EW has Venus in Cancer, too, so she is devoted to…not just loved ones, but principles as well, as these Cancerian planets fall in her 9th house of beliefs, institutions, teaching/learning. She originally taught children with disabilities, a very Cancerian career. She’s a Libra rising, which evokes her career in law and teaching. She also has Mars & Mercury in Gemini in her 8th house, so surely it’s probably not a good idea to argue with her, because she probably can argue in, out, and around a single question fifteen ways to Sunday. However, having these qualities in the 8th house, certainly a company or institution should want to have her on their side! Her Moon in Taurus in the same house can make her both emotionally stubborn yet practical. No fooling around with Mother Liz. Saturn in Virgo in the 11th makes her a useful, practical but no-nonsense friend, too. She’s ultimately a team player. She probably thinks work is fun, FYI. She has Neptune in the 12th, making her spiritual but still idealistic, intellectual and probably swept away by the WORD. (I don’t necessarily mean the Bible, FYI.) She’s all for knowledge, books, learning, etc.
EW has a major ending/new beginning taking place in her home area. She is changing her ways of communication—and this chart says, will gain new “brothers and sisters as well.” Here is an interesting note: she is going to change where she lives in December of 2020. So, it’s possible, she could be on a ticket with someone at the top. I really doubt that she is going to be the president, because Jupiter is not on her Ascendant or at her Midheaven, but she is clearly learning about money and partnerships. At that same time, partnerships will be very active. Therefore, there’s a possibility that she could be a candidate for vice president. EW, strong as she is, has buddy energy. She’s super-energetic and strong. Keep an eye on Liz. Imagine her in a Biden role. Can you?
Kamala Harris is a Libra, so as you can see, Libra is a strong influence in Dems, just as Capricorn is a strong influence in Repubs. Like AOC, she has an Aries Moon, so look out! Unlike AOC, Mercury is conjoined to her Sun, but in the differing sign of Scorpio. This woman knows how to hold her tongue when necessary, even if her temper has flared. She has a kite in her chart that is focused on her Aries Moon, so the emotion and idealism are what drive her, but with Mars in Leo in the 3rd house, she won’t take any shi*. She also has Uranus, Pluto, and Venus conjoined in the 4th house in Virgo. Her life purpose is communication in a large sense. Her pain point is a vulnerability that has come from difficult home circumstances. There seems to have been a critical household with a loved one missing from the home in childhood and this is what has informed her care for the vulnerable. Indeed, Kamala’s parents divorced when she was young, and she moved to Montreal with her mother. Even though Kamala was born in California of Jamaican American and Indian (East) American parents. Kamala went to college in the US, however, at Howard and then University of California, where she became a lawyer in 1990. She has been both the attorney general of California and a senator. The Uranus/Pluto energy in her household area speaks to the disruption of her parents and the separation from ”home.” The Uranian influence in her home base could also refer to the fact that she attended both the Baptist church and Hindu temple. There is an energy of straddling many cultures—Jamaican, Indian, American, black, French, Baptist, Hindu, and to make matters more interesting, her mother worked at a Jewish hospital. Kamala is the epitome of a “person of the world.” Her parents were very well educated, and I would guess from the intensity of the Virgoan influences in her chart and the fact that her parents were both professors, there probably was a strong influence on learning, analyzing, and loving education in the household. In addition, her maternal grandfather, with whom she was close, was an Indian diplomat. With Neptune in Scorpio, she is an intuitive leader with a polyglot influence and all over her chart. Despite the Gemini Rising charm and Libra Sun magnetism, she is a tough cookie.
The transits are not necessarily being kind to her, as Neptune transits her natal pain point, making her vulnerable in the career area. Is she not seeing something? We do have the opportunity to have faith instead of fog, but that doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be discerning of what her weaknesses are. As far as I can see, she is already being attacked for the some of the things that happened when she was attorney general, and although I can see Dems might see that as negative, in some ways, that could help her with Republicans. On the positive side, at Election time, Jupiter will be trine her birth Jupiter in the earth signs (Taurus/Cap) , conjoining the Capricorn Pluto, which always intensifies or separates, and for her, this is in a money house. We know that presidents don’t make much money until AFTER they leave the White House usually, and this does show an influence on money and partner’s money, so who are her money partners? The DNC? Her hubby? Her supporters? There is a major ending, major new beginning here, so this is definitely something that changes her fortunes—the question is, will she then OWE money, or will she receive it? The Jupiter will be also trining her Uranus/Pluto/Venus in Virgo, so it’s possible she could have a move coming. She definitely makes an announcement on election day. Keep in mind that the North Node is returning to HER North Node position in Gemini on the Rising during all of 2020, so there could be a fated element to all of this. One of the reasons I think she is a strong candidate possibility is the money partnering going on in her chart. Anyone who watched Trump’s chart surely would have noticed that Jupiter was running through his money houses at his election, and the mission was about accomplishing new partners for money purposes. The difference is, his partnering for his own resources and using some of his own. Kamala’s money will be coming from powerful monied partners and corporations. This could potentially be a deficit for her, since many are against the use of corporate monies for election—one of HIllary’s problems. The populists like Bernie, AOC, and Beto are more people-funded, not corporatized. But Kamala will have the big bucks. Read that, traditional sources. She may NOT get the money out of politics. She has other strengths, but that will probably NOT be one of them.
Tulsi Gabbard is a triple Aries (Mars, Sun, Venus). No surprise that she is a military brat and military person, as Aries Sun & Mars often indicate a warrior. We don’t have a rising sign for her, so we have to go with solar chart information. Tulsi is mostly fire and air. She also has an Aries Mercury, so she may let her fire be known quite easily, and as we can see, many of the female candidates have this issue. They are not taking prisoners. In addition, Tulsi’s Moon is in Leo—and this gives of a past life leader as well—strong personality. Her life purpose is to be a lovable leader. She has Jupiter and Saturn in Libra which is a powerful manifesting indication. Have an entrepreneurial idea, then make it happen. Her Pluto opposes her Sun/Mars/Venus, which usually indicates a separation from someone who she loved deeply—or a parent (usually father) with high expectations. I would guess the latter is probably true, because her dad is a member of the Hawaiian senate. Tulsi is Hindu and Samoan-American, although her dad is Catholic (he is the Samonan), and her mom, from Indiana, is Hindu. Her father (and Tulsi herself) was a Republican who switched to Democrat in the 2000s. She served as a vice chair of the DNC until February 2016 and endorsed Bernie for pres. Tulsi was homeschooled, and there has been argument over whether her parents were part of an anti-gay cult, from which Tulsi has had to distance herself. Her dad was a politician, and Tulsi herself has been a national guardsman as well as a U.S. state Representative from Hawaii.
Many astrologers are giving Tulsi the thumbs-up, and I am assuming that is because transiting Jupiter will be on her solar midheaven by 2020, plus Venus in Aries will make her look attractive to some. She will definitely be very active during the summer of 2020, but I also show that public speaking will become painful for her at that time. I don’t know if that is because she says something that gets her in trouble. Every candidate has some unpleasant history, and there’s a lot to overcome in Tulsi’s case, in addition to the non-religious aspect (despite the cult-like school of her upbringing.) Tulsi claims to be spiritual and is technically Hindu. Notice how we run the gamut of diverse candidates this election season. I’m not sure if she’s just busy or mad at the election season, but there seems to be something she’s whispering about behind the scenes to loved ones. And guess what, guys? We have a Mars retrograde election, meaning that THINGS WON’T WORK RIGHT, so what’s new? Look for hanging chads, recounts, and all kind of bullshit, with tempers flaring in November.
What did Babe Ruth say? It ain’t over till it’s over.
To be truthful, I guessed wrong last election season, because I picked Hillary to win, and Cruz to oppose her because I just couldn’t believe that ANYONE would elect Cheetohead, knowing his history. I guess that’s the key. I knew something felt “off,” but I didn’t listen to my gut. This time I’m listening, and I think it’s Kamala and a guy. No matter what astrologers say, I don’t think it’s Tulsi. She’s a flipper with strange ideas (all that impulsive Aries stuff) and I don’t think it’s AOC—too early for her.
Kirsten Gillibrand is a Sagittarius, and so this is a good thing. Although we don’t have her birthtime, Kirsten has the Sun and Venus both in Sagittarius, and with Jupiter running through this sign in a prominent spot in her solar chart, she is looking very attractive, despite a difficult name to pronounce. Her Moon is in secretive Scorpio, along with her Neptune and Mercury, so the problem is, she may have some secrets that she may need to share, as she becomes more popular. Like many of the candidates, she has been a lawyer prior to becoming a politician. Her Mars in Libra may be indicative of this, close to her solar MidHeaven. Her parents were attorneys as well, and so far, the biggest secret I’ve found about her is that she used to be called Tina. Her life purpose (North Node) is Taurus, giving a life purpose connected to finance or mother earth, or, yes, government and bureaucracy (slow as an elephant). Truth be told, she is rejecting corporate PACs while taking money from Wall Street bigwigs. She, like Tulsi Gabbard, made a shift from conservative Democrats and an A-rating from the NRA to becoming more Progressive and earning currently an F-rating from them. She has a Uranus/ Pluto conjunction close to the midheaven, too, in compulsive, perfectionist Virgo. Because Virgo is mercurial and a multitasker, she may thrive on Uranian chaos, but Pluto will amplify these persnickety Virgoan behaviors—or completely remove them. Her Jupiter is in sunny Leo which does give a personality growing as a leader, with an entrepreneurial spirit. Kirsten’s pain point is in vulnerable Pisces, in a solar communication house, right next to a Piscean Saturn, which could be good, could be bad. However, Saturn usually gives an ability to control and tamp things down, but again, makes you wonder if she might have an Achilles’ heel somewhere. Mars at the Midheaven will certainly give her lots of energy, but since we know, Libra scales swing back and forth, will this give her staying power (a cardinal sign after all) or flexibility (air)? WE hope, both. I worry that this candidate might not have the grit to survive what we know will be a ruthless candidacy, and I wonder about her vulnerabilities. But she does have Scorpio Moon, Neptune, and Merc in her chart, which might give her a sting when we least expect it, so perhaps a secret skill with a spear may be just what she needs to survive.
Amy Klobuchar is the candidate that everyone has been saying is mean/tough, but let’s face it, she’s a Gemini. In fact, a triple Gemini—Sun, Moon, & Mercury in Gemini. Geminis are sliders; they know how to say what people want to hear, and usually, they like to be positive, so what’s her problem? This is a solar chart, so we don’t have a birth time for her, but let’s see what her purpose is—North Node in Virgo means service. But let’s keep in mind, Virgos are not known for tact, and they ARE known for being pick-pick-picky. Perhaps she knows what she wants and knows what she wants to project but is somehow missing the mark in her delivery. This usually indicates either a spiritual past life, possibly monastic, or perhaps an artistic or lazy past life, and now this lifetime is about nuts and bolts git-‘er-done service. Her pain point Chiron is in vulnerable Pisces, so she knows she’s subject to criticism and other attacks. She has a mutable T-square with an apex at her Sun/Moon, and Chiron and Pluto are on opposite ends of this. Pluto in Virgo will make her persnickety anyway, due to generational issues—after the hippies, before the millennials. (Many feel like they got screwed.) In Amy’s case, the Pluto/Moon/Sun square indicates parent problems. Either one or other of the parents was missing or had super-high expectations, which Amy could never quite attain. The Pluto/Moon configuration is often called in astrology the “Mother-devourer.” This is someone who we love but who is so rough, we know that if she “brought us in, she can take us out.” There are many conflicting emotions in this scenario, as you can imagine. The Sun/Pluto side shows a missing father or a father who made her a “Daddy’s girl,” (read “spoiled”) OR, again, the high expectations scenario. In this case, the person attains a height and then falls from grace, attains a height and then sometimes sabotages oneself in order never to reach Daddy’s lofty wishes. Since the Sun represents what we have to learn how to do: in this case, learn how to communicate, and where we come from, a life of communicating, I’d say Amy still has some “learnin’” to do in this regard, and unfortunately, she gets to do it on the “large stage.” Looking at Amy’s history, what we discover is that Amy’s parents divorced when she was 15, the age of intimacy, due to the fact that her father was an alcoholic who caused much suffering in the family. Although her parents have reconciled and are now friends, the event is known to have harmed the family—and I would assume, Amy. (Amy has one younger sister—I find this common among Geminis, who need “a buddy.”) Amy herself may have felt she had to present two faces—one facing the reality of being a child of an alcoholic and another presenting a happy face to the world (“Nothing’s wrong.”) This may have served her well in her career as a lawyer as well as a politician. She is having a Saturn return, which creates a new era in life, which certainly a presidential bid would do, but I fear this may simply cause her financial burdens and will cause others to want to “divorce” themselves from her. The planets are not in her favor for her success at this time, and she will bail early. I do think she is supported in her bid by oved ones, but she will not have the staying power, monetarily or otherwise, and she’ll be out. She’ll be on to bigger and better –and different things—once she’s out.
One other person, not from the political arena, is running as a Democrat, in this group of women, and that is self-help guru Marianne Williamson. Marianne has been known for writing books, not only about The Course in Miracles, a supposedly channeled book of Jesus, but also she is the author of Return to Love, and anyone who has been too long in her environs knows she probably needs to do so. She is not known as a cuddly person, despite her book subjects about loving oneself and love/fear. Her reputation is as somewhat of a b****. Another Amy Klobuchar story? Let’s see. Marianne’s life purpose is not only to detach from the group but to do something for the group and with Pluto/Mercury in Leo in her third house of communication, I can see why she talks about love all the time. Leonine lessons are about self-love and lovability, and with her Pluto/Merc combo, this is exaggerated. Also explains why sometimes she acts like a tyrant and not a lovable leader. Anyway, she’s supposed to detach, so that will do it!!! Sometimes our greatest teachers are the hardest on us. Using Marianne’s own teachings on her, I could also say that she sees herself in us, and she is being tested to love us as she loves herself, which means, that’s difficult! Anyway, she is a triple Cancer (very affixed to things, people, ideas) with a Capricorn Moon (severe) in the 8th house (where money comes from) and Gemini Rising—talk talk talk about it all. These are traditional signs, and her pain point is in relationships in Capricorn as well—what she does for others, she has trouble doing for herself. That explains a lot. She is a conundrum—the loving mother and the bitchy boss—she has an element of the Mother-Devourer in her, for sure. Uranus and Venus conjunct her Cancer Sun can make her moody. I know her purpose in running for president is a spiritual one. She is going by the old methods to lead-running for president is as traditional as we can get around here. Let’s face, it, she already has a following, although sometimes she chases people off. That said, she hasn’t a chance in hell of becoming pres, although I said that about Trump, and after all, we ARE in hell, so who knows? 😉 Her chart is running somewhat like Amy’s—she’ll be depressed and monetarily depleted before it’s all over, and then she’ll have a spiritual awakening, realizing that her run was more ego-driven, and she’ll let it go. That’s the one thing about Marianne; she has a context through which she can see this thing, and this will evolve her ego to cleanse her of the need to get to the top. Sometimes the top isn’t the best place to be, and sometimes it’s not the most influential place to be. Sometimes the bottom, the minute, the seemingly insignificant—is THE most significant place to be. I think she will learn that. At any rate, this is going to be a huge emotional lesson for her.
To be honest, despite what I said above, Liz Warren and Tulsi seems to have the best charts for a presidential run—of the females, with Kamala and Kirsten next. AOC is too young, so that leaves Tulsi. We can’t always get what we want. Next, I’ll look at the males and see how they will fare. The most talked about are Joe Biden and Beto O’Rourke, but there are other promising folks in the mix. I myself would like to see a woman and a person of color in the top pair, so let’s hope a unique pairing can be arranged.
