Merrick Garland (November 13, 1952)
Everybody and their uncle are wondering why Attorney General Merrick Garland hasn’t arrested Donald Trump yet. They think there’s enough evidence to lock Trump up for obstruction of justice, witness tampering and inciting violence. But, what they don’t seem to understand is that a Scorpio Sun individual is not going to tip his hand before he acts.
I have rectified Garland’s chart to reflect an approximate placement of Venus, near age 35, when he married his wife. This will be close enough for jazz.
There are three inconjuncts, with only one of them dependent on an accurate birth time.
Mercury Inconjunct Jupiter (definitely)
You like to think big, and you have great ambitions, but you don’t always make sure that your thinking is clear or careful. When you make any kind of plan, be careful. Don’t try to take on more than you can handle and make sure not to overlook details, for that could hurt what you are trying to do. Careful planning will help you develop disciplined habits in other areas as well.
On the other hand, if you do learn careful mental habits, you can have creative ability with this aspect, because you are able to see and understand all the elements of a situation. You take a broad and far-seeing view of a situation, which is unusual for someone your age. Most of the time you are willing to let other people think what they choose, as long as they leave your ideas alone. However, you may be inclined to preach about morality, because you enjoy being right and letting others know that they do not live up to your “high” standards. But sometimes you fake it; you aren’t as “good” as you pretend to be. Be careful of this, for you could be known as a hypocrite. It’s fine to set high standards and live up to them, but do not pretend to be better than you are. And let others decide on their own moral standards.
Mars Inconjunct Pluto (for sure)
You have a strong will and always want to have your own way. But very often it seems as if tremendous forces are working to prevent you from getting what you want. If you have this problem, it is because of the way you go about trying to achieve your ends. If you put too much force into your desire to get something, you may unknowingly alienate people because your aggressive manner shows that you will let nothing stop you from getting what you want. Even if that isn’t the way you really feel about it, you should recognize that your forcefulness creates this impression.
Uranus Inconjunct Midheaven (perhaps)
You need to express your thoughts and feelings, but you often upset the people around you with your words. You seem to enjoy creating a stir every time you say something, but this can get you into quite a bit of trouble with parents, teachers and other authority figures. The underlying principle of this aspect is the need to balance your individual self-expression and manner of communicating with your need to learn and grow under the guidance of older people.
Is he related to Judy Garland? Maybe he’s “somewhere over the rainbow”, eh?
