Okay, having taken a look at the chart of Donald Trump,
it is now time to do the same for Hillary Clinton. Remember, this is an
astrological view of the candidate, not a liberal or conservative viewpoint.
There is some confusion as to the exact time Hillary was born so I decided to
use her Solar chart to see what showed up.
If Donald Trump's chart is
all about being in public, Hillary's chart is all about being private. Hillary
is a Scorpio, THE most private sign of the zodiac. Not only is her Sun in
Scorpio but her Venus and Mercury are here as well. This is someone who is
intensely private almost to the point of paranoia. With three planets all in
private Scorpio what is she doing in public life? Easy. She has Mars, Pluto and
Saturn all at the top of her chart in the public tenth house. What a conflict
this woman was born with! On the one hand all she really yearns for is a secret
place all her own where no one bothers her. But her chart doesn't give her any
peace until she finds a way to publicly shine. For someone who is probably one
of the most famous women in the world I can only imagine how sometimes painful
this conflict is.
TNot only does she have all these planets in
secretive Scorpio but her N. Node is in Taurus putting her S. Node is in
Scorpio as well. There is often some kind of trauma associated with a S. Node
in Scorpio. It is as if the soul is born remembering pain, betrayal and even
violence. They are figuratively born with their dukes up, expecting trouble
from the get go. And very often they find it. I know of no other nodal
placement that is so prone to being born into some sort of stressful or
dangerous situation. Hillary has talked about her parents and what sounds like
a very normal childhood but my guess is she always felt on guard, ready to
defend herself, waiting for the attack. Defending herself does not have to be
physical but rather verbal. Wars of words instead of fists. It is interesting
that she joined the debate club. Here is a way to still fight for what is
important but no one has to physically suffer or die for their beliefs. Part of
her soul mission is to find peace and safety, which is not such a bad thing in
a world leader. But over and over, every time she turns around she is in
situations that remind her of old persecutions and enemies. Gee, have we seen
any of this in her public life?
Talk about irony. All these years she
forced herself to grow a thick skin to cover up a soft heart only to find that
the public now sees her as cold and maybe a bit calculating. I'm not saying
those energies are not present, but do not sell this woman short on the softer
feelings as well. Like Trump, I think she feels safest showing vulnerability
around her family and children in general. She HATES having to show her deepest
emotions and yet without showing her human side as opposed to her capable side,
she is not always connecting with the public. What a conflict. So why is she so
determined to stay in public life and even run for the highest office in the
country? Because her chart demands no less.
She has Pluto, her ruling
planet, at the peak of her chart. It is right next to Mars on one side and
Saturn on the other. Believe me, this is not an astrological walk in the park.
This is a very challenging arrangement of planets. With so much forcefulness in
such a public place, she could have started her own company and made millions.
She wants and needs to be in charge. And I can only imagine the struggles
between her and her husband as to who is the real authority in the family. Her
Leo energy is strong, and pride can keep her from admitting mistakes and
shortcomings. But her lovely sensitive Moon is very idealistic. This Moon truly
wants to make a difference and wants to save the world. With all of the
strength in her Scorpio and Leo planets, I think it is that soft Pisces Moon
that ultimately led her to the public service sector.
and holding things close to her chest is as natural to her as breathing. But
America, with its Sagittarius rising, wants openness and honesty, something
that this chart does not easily do. There can be the appearance of doing
something wrong because of the secrecy factor. She may hold herself accountable
in private, but in public, the motto may be "never let them see you sweat". For
a Scorpio there is no greater fear than looking weak. And she has to find the
answer to the question - when is it pride and when is it arrogance? Because
only she will truly know the answer.
If it is one thing Scorpio's value
it is loyalty. Add in the loyalty needs of her Leo planets as well and she will
keep people around her that honor that trust, because once broken it is not
going to be rebuilt again quickly, if at all. On the other hand, she will keep
faith with those she trusts and does not go back her word. Scorpio can
sometimes be autocratic and dominating. But this sign is capable of great
transformation on the high side of Scorpio.
Hillary's chart is
compelling, forceful and dynamic. Not the chart of a wilting flower for sure.
It is full of mystery and power and intrigue. It is also full of kindness,
compassion and a deep well of emotions that we seldom see. Her chart is in many
ways the opposite of Trump's. His energy is all out in the open, brash and
bold. Hers is not as brash but it is for sure, just as strong. This election is
a clash of the titans.
As our nation moves closer and closer to Election
Day, the campaign on both sides will heat up more and more. Come January one of
these people will be sworn in as president of the United States. And that
person, whoever he or she is, will need our prayers and acceptance. This
election is not only asking a great deal from the candidates, it is asking
something just as strong from the population. No matter who wins, our nation
needs forgiveness and unity. We must let go of our anger and passion over this
election and lift up our nation in love and understanding. Whoever our
president is, it is the only way to heal and move forward.
