Hillary Rodham Clinton (October 26, 1947)
The previous post about JFK Jr has brought my attention back to the way the world views Mrs. Clinton: on the left, she s a shining icon of feminist yearnings for the top political job; on the right, she represents everything that’s wrong with American politics.
So, I did a little digging, and the more I read, the less I liked about her. Why is that?
The birth chart was already on my Kepler 7.0 program, so I’m going to go with that. There are other astrologers that think that 8:00 am is more accurate. I have no opinion.
There is but one inconjunct, and because it involves the Ascendant, I am not going to speculate on its meaning, except to suggest that if she works for others she will benefit, but if she works for herself she will fail.
And the grand trine in her chart involving the Sun, the Ascendant and the Midheaven is also dependent on the accuracy of the birth time, so I will not comment on that, either.
What does come across as too obvious to ignore is the Mars/Pluto conjunction @ 14º Leo. This aspect is almost exact, and may account for the fact that people will be ‘nervous’ about this energy.
Mars Conjunct Pluto
You have a very strong will, although you may express it in subtle ways. If you don’t get your way, you may lose your temper, but when you see that that will get you nowhere, you change your tactics. The greatest problem with this aspect is that you may decide that getting your own way is the most important thing in life and that the only way to get it is by controlling others. Unless you are taught to have a high regard for other people’s rights, you may trample upon them. But in that case people are likely to gang up on you and try to stop you at every turn, which will make you feel very frustrated and even further from obtaining your objectives. Instead of manipulating people, you must learn how to handle others creatively, so that they benefit from whatever happens as much as you do.
Regardless of your sex. with this aspect you may have considerable difficulty with men. It is particularly important that your relationship with your father be close and warm, with as little conflict as possible and no physical punishment.
On the plus side, this aspect can signify that you have a great deal of positive drive and ambition. You will want to accomplish a lot in life, and you will enjoy having power over others and using it responsibly. You will want to make changes in the world, which you see as a stage where you can make the greatest possible impression. But while you are young, you must bide your time and learn everything that you will need to know to fulfill your ambitions. Then you should go far in life.
[Just a small note here: I used to live with a woman in the UK whose birth date is one week before Hillary’s; she too had this aspect, but it was modified by her Sun being in Libra. Hillary’s is in Scorpio.]
In case you’ve never come up against someone with Sun in Scorpio, remember the ‘sting in the tail’. And their whole approach is secretive. That’s why they make others suspect all kinds of devious behaviour on the individual’s part. In truth, they are just trying to do their very best, but get very frustrated when blocked. Do we see a theme here?
