HILLARY CLINTON

Hillary Clinton was born October 26 1947 in Chicago Illinois. A report in the Chicago Sun Times quotes her mother stating she was born in time for breakfast and a time of 08.02 am is widely circulated. The time of around 8 am seems to fit adequately with the principle events of her life.

It makes Hillary a Scorpio with a secretive, but socially twelfth house Sun. Communicative Mercury rising at birth along with appealing Venus. Her Moon is in the fellow water sign of Pisces. The water element supports emotional empathy and the strong Scorpionic feel denotes the determined fighter.

Hillary will not give in easily, something that was evident during the last Democratic presidential nomination process against Barack Obama. Clinton also has a powerful Mars Pluto conjunction. Potentially that can lead to intense competition and also an explosive temper. The Mars Pluto is in Leo (husband Bill’s sun-sign) and in a testing square angle to her Venus.

The Mars in Leo is the standout feature of US President' horoscopes, with ten having this placement. Conversely, Hillary will also have to contend with none of them having Pisces Moons like her. While the bookies consider her the hot favorite for the post, there are certain planetary indications that say it may not be without a controversy or scare.

On Sunday April 12 at 14.33 hours an email correspondence from John Podesta, the Chairman of the 2016 Hillary for President campaign announced the start of her run. This was confirmed by an Internet video released at 15.07 hours in which she officially declared her bid for the presidency. Twenty minutes later as popular Venus reached the Midheaven over Washington her Twitter account relayed 'I am running for President!' It was on.

BATTLE OF DYNASTIES?

The betting markets are showing Clinton a clear favourite with Jeb Bush the likely nominee for the Republicans. Already it is being called the battle of the Clinton and Bush dynasties. The two families have held a grip on US power since George Bush was elected President on November 9 1988. George Senior lasted four years in the position. He was defeated by Bill Clinton who ruled for another eight years.

The 2000 election was controversially awarded to George W. Bush, who subsequently served two terms. This pattern was broken by the election of Barack Obama, although Hillary Clinton became his first Secretary of State, after conceding the Democratic nomination. Clinton then stepped down in 2013 to plan her current bid for the nation's highest position. If everything goes to plan, it will be a Clinton/Bush showdown come November 1 2016.

A MORTGAGE ON THE WHITE HOUSE

The ruling plutocracies and the influence of money on the campaigns is clearly shown in the Clinton launch charts. Here, Venus the planet of popularity, is in hard aspect to both the more individualist Uranus and Pluto, the planet of the plutocracies. With election campaign funds tipped to soar to $6 billion, it's virtually a race to buy the White House. But Venus in hard aspect to Uranus and Pluto also plainly shows that financial reform is a must, in order to safeguard democratic elections.

I will further analyse the launch charts, along with Hillary in future columns. But one thing immediately stands out. The campaign was launched on a day that the Sun formed a challenging semisquare with the king of spin – Neptune. It would also suggest that Hillary will be linked more with social reforms and the political idealism that Neptune exudes.

Neptune can also represent subterfuge, scandals and rumor. This influence is not only contained in the campaign launch date – it also appears in Hillary's secondary progressed horoscope for next year. Hillary's progressed Sun will square her natal Neptune, exact in January of 2016. Further in September, the same progressed Sun will square progressed Neptune. September 2016 will also see the progressed Sun of her campaign launch semisquare Neptune.

Neptune is not easy to define precisely but it may operate via something throwing a cloud of confusion and 'smoke and mirrors' over proceedings. The Sun is traditionally male figures, which immediately brings husband Bill into the picture. Inadvertently controversial statements from Bill dogged her last nomination campaign. There may even be health concerns, or the rumors of the same that play an undermining role. This doesn't rule out a Clinton victory. But it places a definite detour on the path to glory.

ABRAHAM LINCOLN 150

April 15 last week represented the 150th anniversary of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. The American Presidency has a high mortality rate that would deter most life insurance brokers. One if five die in office. And the event seems to occur with some regularity. Enough to give astrologers reason to examine it for planetary significance. Much has been written about this but the research is miniscule in comparison with what is a truly principal event.

In looking for an initial pattern America's leading astrologer of the 19th century Dr L. Broughton linked presidential death in office to the Jupiter/Saturn alignments in the earth signs. When these two planetary heavyweights come together every twenty years, they usually occupy the same element (fire, earth, air or water) for a whole two hundred and forty years. Therefore when Ronald Reagan survived the assassin's bullet in March of 1981 most astrologers attributed this to the fact that the Jupiter/Saturn conjunction occurred in the air sign of Libra. Reagan's life, and Broughton's theory, were spared.

Allowing for an eerie ring of truth regarding Broughton's hypothesis, determining the volatile time window eludes most astrologers. The Presidents in question had been sworn in at the cycles commencement, but often died well into it - and in Roosevelt's case, nearly five years. A more accurate astrological timing measure will be required for any useful predictive application of danger to the leader.

Two planets stand out. The first is a planet barely used in Broughton's time, the distant gas giant Neptune. Singularly the Neptune factor is the greatest planetary influence concurrent with Presidential demise. In six out of eight cases of a President dying in office, Neptune was forming a hard aspect to the same point.

The odds of this happening exceeded three thousand to one. In fact every time Neptune has been in the middle degrees, 16 to 17, of a fixed sign a President had died in office until George Bush survived a bomb thrown in his direction in May 2005. Not so lucky were.

William Harrison died April 4 1841 Neptune 16Aquarius30

James Garfield died September 19 1881 Neptune 15Taurus58

Warren Harding died August 2 1923 Neptune 16Leo40

John F. Kennedy died November 22 1963 Neptune 15Scorpio55

If we are to use the Sibley chart for the USA (July 4 1776 @ 5.10 p.m.) this whole finding may make some sense. The Midheaven of this chart is the second degree of Libra. Astrologically the Midheaven represents the leader and administration. Each time a planet reached the middle degrees of a fixed sign it would automatically form a hard aspect to this Libran Midheaven.

The widest orb for any of these aspects was for F.D. Roosevelt who suddenly died of a brain hemorrhage when Neptune had moved three degrees past the conjunction to the Midheaven.

While the recurrence of Neptune is interesting, planets do not work in isolation, but rather as an orchestration of energies. The next planet in from Neptune is Uranus. It's the 'jack in the box' of startle and surprise. It could be associated with sudden death, or assassination. Uranus exhibited a definite pattern.

It was mostly in mutable signs of Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius or Pisces, at the ratio of seven out of eight times, during a Presidential death in office. Remarkable enough, even with such a small sample, but more notable was the degree areas occupied. For Presidents Garfield and Kennedy, both gunned down, Uranus returned to within the same degree of the 360 degree zodiac, and was in exact aspect to this degree for the deaths of both McKinley and Roosevelt.

James Garfield shot July 2 1881 Uranus 10Virgo33

William McKinley shot Sep 6 1901 Uranus 12Sagittarius59

F.D. Roosevelt died April 12 1945 Uranus 10Gemini24

John F. Kennedy died November 22 1963 Uranus 9Virgo49

Again the survivor was George W Bush when the planet headed through Pisces in 2005 and 2006. Mysteriously a film entitled 'Death Of A President' was released depicting his assassination in the same time frame. These factors may be merely coincidental and it may be folly to believe that the stars dictate the precise fate of the kings today. But we may be even greater fools to be ignorant to their influence altogether.

Aries or Aries Rising: New Moons invariably signal fresh starts. You have one in your sign, which is having a big impact on the week to come.

Taurus or Taurus Rising: The success coaches say that you can have it all – whatever ‘all’ is? For some that’s why penicillin was invented. You don’t get without giving. This is where relinquishment can actually be beneficial. It creates a void, something that the universe abhors. By letting something go, you invite something in. If life was appearing a little out of control, then looking to repeat the same old ‘same old’, was the problem. By Tuesday you can be back in charge of the show.

Gemini or Gemini Rising: The Zen ‘art of non-doing’ isn’t just the perfect life theory for the lazy layabout. Action has to be well directed to be effective. The wrong moves can generate a boomerang effect and come back to bite you. Currently you may not have the right information, or be unaware of something. The only way you find out is by ‘playing dumb’ or unleashing your private eye. If you really want to find out what somebody is thinking – just be agreeable. The week of playing it cool on all levels.

This is the perfect time to review what you are doing, and how you are doing it. Weigh up the costs and the benefits. If you want to keep going at something, it really has to be worth your while. Certainly can’t be all work and no play. Otherwise you risk becoming the crabby Cancer and we can’t have that. Your mates are waiting.

Leo or Leo Rising: There are some challenges to rise to this week. They are not to be underestimated and may try your patience. What’s new? But you’re more than capable. If you’ve felt that you’ve been traveling with a hand brake on, it’s now slowly releasing. Now is the time to be out there and at it. Get involved. A combination of conversational Mercury and assertive Mars can be firing up the mid sign born midweek. Good for putting ideas into action, but not for running the red light around Wednesday or Thursday.

Virgo or Virgo Rising: Some people envision their future years ahead – others get lost in day-to-day immediacy. Why is this important to Virgo? Initially, to avoid wasting time on the mundane trivialities that won’t really change the bigger picture. As the Sun, your ruler Mercury and pro-active Mars align supportively to your sign, it’s time to concentrate on the long-term plans. You will be rewarded by placing extra faith in yourself now, sticking to your higher purpose or believing in the greater possibilities. To get the fuller picture click here your monthly horoscope.

Libra or Libra Rising: Economic rationalization not only drives political ideology in the 21st century, it can be having its effect on the way you think. Who owns what – and why – that’s something worth considering. Other people’s financial situations can be having an overflow effect on yours. Either way the universe has a message for you about being more financially savvy. If you’re born right at the beginning of the sign, a sudden break from a stuck situation may not be such a bad outcome, even if unexpected. Click here and the monthly explains it fuller.

Scorpio or Scorpio Rising: Some friends will tell you mostly what you want to hear, others tell it like it is. As communicative Mercury joins with hands on Mars, and both oppose your sign - you’re probably going to encounter more of the second variety now. This can also help you act quickly to remedy a situation. There are lessons to be learnt now around self-assertion and also putting ideas into action, rather than just talking about them. Motivation now can come from those around you as your spirit of competition is aroused.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: With love struck Venus in your partnership zone there have been some important, and sometimes obvious, epiphanies regarding relationships. The obvious, that being alone is better than being around people who make you feel that way. With self-sufficient Saturn in your sign you can cope with soloing, as the November born Scorpio cuspers will readily testify. But Venus is opening your heart from the beginning of the week as it squares off with compassionate Neptune. Suits escapist pleasures, art galleries and watching sunsets. A change is in the air.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: Around the Internet you’ll read about Pluto moving retro in Capricorn. But seriously! Pluto changing course is like putting a steamroller in reverse. For a while you might hardly notice any difference at all. If there’s anything to be gained it’s the wisdom to take something slowly and surely. Don’t rush it, especially if it is a major change you’re making. The planet of deep regeneration is not in a hurry and neither should you be. You'll get the full bottlle here in the monthlies.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: The expressive Sun, information planet Mercury and hands on Mars are lining up nicely for work on, or from, the home. Your living conditions can become a positive focal point now. You’re capable of putting much more energy into issues of personal security and the more foundational elements of life. There can also be tests of patience, especially if you’re born around February 4. Trying to do things hastily may prove counter-productive and it may pay to let some things pass, or reflect rather than react.

Pisces or Pisces Rising: Communication is the key to your week. Relationships thrive when you put it all into words. Think ‘wavelength’. Now is also the time for getting your CV out there or advertising your skills. Computing and commuting can play key roles. The week’s squaring off of romantic Venus and imaginative Neptune delivers some divine inspiration for birthdays late February or early March. But living in an escapist paradise also suggests leaving important financial decisions to a later, and more pragmatic period. Click here for the monthlies.
