“Sassy! Smart! Sexy! Some men couldn’t handle it.”
Michael Moore, Sicko 2007
This was how Michael Moore characterized Hillary Clinton in his 2007 documentary, Sicko. This groundbreaking documentary detailed the irrevocably, broken healthcare system in the United States of America.
Moore devoted a segment to Hillary Clinton because in a historically unprecedented move, her husband, then president of the United States, Bill Clinton did the unthinkable and appointed his wife to head the Task Force on National Health Care Reform in 1993. The goal for this task force was to come up with a comprehensive plan to provide universal health care for all Americans. The opposition to this task force was vicious and vitriolic. Most of it was aimed at Hillary herself. The bill was eventually defeated by its forceful opposition.
The sad, heartbreaking epilogue to this entire story is that it was reported that Hillary Clinton accepted millions of dollars from her enemies in the pharmaceutical and health insurance industry in campaign donations for her bid to the Senate in 2000 and in her 2008 campaign for the Democratic leadership. She received donations from Pfizer Inc., Johnson & Johnson, Bristol-Myers Squibb Co.; and insurers Aetna Inc., MetLife Inc. and Centene Corp.
Hillary Clinton is a complex woman with a talent to stir all kinds of emotions by both her admirers and detractors. You can love her or hate her but you will never be indifferent towards her. This Sassy, Smart and Sexy lady could be the next president of the United States.
What is even more complex is the relationship she shares with her husband of 40 years, William Jefferson Clinton, the 42nd President of the United States of America. The love bond and relationship of Hillary and Bill Clinton is riddled with intrigue, deception and fierce loyalty. What is the glue that holds this famous pair together? Many have wondered throughout the years.
Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton was born October 26, 1947 in Chicago Illinois. Unfortunately, we have two conflicting times for her birth. Her mother, Dorothy Emma Howell claimed that Hillary was born at 8:02 a.m. Of course the elderly Mrs. Rodham was there and should know but Hillary herself claims she was born at 8 p.m. in the evening.
In my opinion and knowing Hillary’s back story, the morning birth does not make sense. The Ascendant is your outer mask and the image you project to the world. A morning birth would give her a Scorpio Ascendant. An evening birth would give her a Gemini Ascendant at 29˚, a critical degree meaning that the Geminian traits are enhanced. This Ascendant is closely conjuncting Uranus. No one can dispute Hillary Clinton’s brilliance and intelligence. She was considered a gifted over-achiever in school. She has always been thrusted in roles where her writing and oration skills have been put to work. She was on the editorial board of the school newspaper. She delivered the commencement speech for her class at Wellesley College which was met with a standing ovation. She is also known as the artful dodger in political circles. That is not to say she is a professional pick-pocketer like Fagin in Oliver Twist, but she has a talent for being evasive when confronted with tough questions. Her cunning ability and use of language have gotten her out of many tight spots. One of her many talents, courtesy of that mercurial Gemini Ascendant.
Where the uranian energy comes into play is she has always tried to crack the glass ceiling for all women. Hillary Clinton is a pioneer and a champion for women’s rights. She is the first, First Lady to be appointed to a task force to affect change in healthcare policy. She is the first, First Lady that has gone on to become a Senator. She is the first, First Lady to run for the presidency. No, she did not win the primary but as she so eloquently put it,
“There are 18 million cracks on that glass ceiling.”
She is the first, First Lady to become Secretary of State. That to me is Uranus on her Ascendant at work. She is the original maverick. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it, John McCain. Hillary has also been accused for not being overly warm and aloof. I think that is the intellectual airy Ascendant shining through. It would also put her Descendant at 29˚ Sagittarius implying that her spouse is a larger than life figure which, of course, he is.
Another interesting thing about the evening birth time is that it puts Hillary’s watery Piscean Moon at 29˚ in the 10th house of career and public honours. Again, the Moon is at a critical degree amplifying the Piscean traits of compassion, altruism and delusion. I have said this before and I will it say again people with planets and points at critical degrees are destined to make an impact on the collective. Hillary has her Ascendant, Moon and Jupiter at critical degrees.
Hillary is heavily Scorpionic. She has her Sun, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio. This makes Hillary a shrewd, penetrating, intense personality to reckon with. She is a formidable foe and friend. When she makes up her mind to do something, she throws herself into it, all the way. I don’t think anyone can be terribly surprised that she had her own email server while she was Secretary of State. Adding to her her drive and leadership abilities are her Saturn, Mars and Pluto in Leo squaring her Scorpio stellium. She is a born leader, talented manager and control freak.
In true Scorpio fashion, no matter how many times she is kicked down, she gets back up. Her story is reminscent of the legend of the Phoenix rising from the ashes. Unfortunately being a public figure her failures have played out in front of the world stage.
William Jefferson Clinton was born on August 19, 1946 in Hope, Arkansas at 8:51 a.m. Bill Clinton oozes charm from every pore o his body so it should come as no surprise that he has a charming, gracious, affable Libra Ascendant with a stellium of Libra planets sitting in his first house. Venus the ruler of his first house is in its domicile. Alongside Venus, we have Jupiter, Mars, Neptune in the 1st house to keep her company. This man was born to be a politician. Of special interest is the Neptune/Mars conjunction in the 1st house. The native with this aspect usually goes about doing things in an indirect manner and may not always assume responsibility for their actions. In some cases the native will outright lie. So when Clinton was asked if he had had sex with Monica Lewinsky or if he smoked pot his Neptune/Mars were working overtime to deflect these unpleasant questions.
He has a sunny, friendly Leo Sun in his 11th house. Like his wife, Bill hosts a stellium of Leo planets which only add warmth and ease to his Libra planets which are being sextiled. His stellium in Leo in the 11th house means he is someone with a long list of friends and supporters. Socially, he has success wherever he goes.
Bill Clinton has an earthy tactile moon in Taurus in the 8th house. Even though the moon is exalted, it is his achilles heel. It is that lusty Taurus Moon, in the house of sex that got him in trouble with the Lewinsky scandal. Lets just say Bill Clinton is a man with uncontrollable appetites. The fact that this Moon squares his Sun leaves him with deep feelings of insecurity and lack. There is always tension between his subconscious forces and his emotions.
These two individuals are as different as day and night. He is the warm friendly consummate politician. She is the rational strategist and intellectual. Their love story began at the Yale library. They had both noticed one another before and had been circling and sizing each other up. One day Hillary finally found the courage and strode up to Bill and introduced herself.
“Look, if we’re going to spend all this time staring at each other, we should at least get to know who the other is.”
Bill, for his part, admitted to being tongue-tied and was not able to respond. The first thing that stands out in their charts is that Hillary’s Neptune is conjunct Bill’s stellium of Libra planets, particularly his Venus at 11˚ Libra is sitting in his first house. He was in awe of her. She was this elusive mysterious entity. This is a generational aspect. All women close to Bill’s age have this aspect with him. Maybe this explains why he is a bit of a womanizer. This same Venus sextiles Hillary’s Leo Mars which adds the sexual overtones to their relationship. The real sexual zinger comes from Bill’s Pluto in Leo conjuncting Hillary’s Mars/Pluto conjunction. There certainly was an element of lust at first sight.
They do not have the traditional Moon/Moon or Sun/Moon connections that you hope a long-term committed partnership to have nor do they have 7th house aspects. They do have a grand trine which consists of Hillary’s Moon trining Bill’s Leo Saturn and this same Saturn trining Hillary’s Jupiter. This, I believe is the glue that holds them together. This grand trine is their raison d’être. They believe they can make a difference in the world and change it for the better, as a team, with his charm and her brains.
Their charts are wracked with squares and oppositions. Bill’s Leo Saturn, Mercury, Pluto and Sun square Hillary’s Scorpio planets of Sun, Venus and Mercury. Hillary’s Venus and Mercury oppose Bill’s Taurus Moon. They don’t see eye to eye on a lot of things and butt heads. The most challenging aspect is Hillary’s Saturn conjuncts Bill’s Leo Sun and squares his Moon. She only exacerbates his shaky natal Sun square Moon aspect.
They do have a commitment to each other. Bill’s Moon conjuncts Hillary’s north node. They have a shared dream and a destiny together.
The next question is, does Hillary have a winning hand this time around? Without knowing Hillary’s competition it would be impossible to speculate her odds at this point. I am sure Hillary Clinton thought she was a shoe-in last time she ran. That is until, a young, unassuming, visionary senator from Chicago breezed into Washington and stole her thunder. Barack Obama’s natal chart merges very nicely with the US mundane chart. His Neptune conjuncts the US Ascendant at 8˚ Scorpio and his natal Uranus opposes the US Moon Aquarius Moon at 25˚. His message of hope and change resonated very clearly at this juncture in American history. In 2008 there was also an eclipse series that triggered his natal Ascendant at 18˚ Aquarius and natal Sun at 12˚ Leo.
Hillary does have that Gemini Uranus at 25˚ trining the US Moon to help her along. She will have transiting Jupiter squaring her Uranus and opposing her Moon in the late summer. We are currently going through an eclipse series on the Virgo/Pisces axis. On September 16, 2016 there will be a lunar eclipse at 24˚ Virgo/Pisces. This eclipse will square her natal Gemini Uranus and conjunct her Piscean Moon. Lunar eclipses signify conclusions or endings. This does not bode well. I am wondering if some scandal is unearthed and comes to a conclusion by mid September. Also none of her Scorpio planets closely conjunct that US Ascendant.
The one encouraging thing is that her progress Sun and Mercury will be trining her progress Midheaven on November 8, 2016 and that transiting Pluto will be conjuncting and trining this configuration. The one problem is that Pluto will be separating from both of these aspects by election day. Her progress Saturn also recently moved into her 12th house which is not a great place to host Saturn.
Her solar return for October 2016 has Venus/Saturn conjuncting the Midheaven and Jupiter sextiling it which is positive. So there will be a lot of contradictions in Mrs. Clinton’s life over the next year. Like the woman herself nothing will be clear cut and it is all cloaked in mystery. Until we know who her main competitor will be, it looks undecided.
Hillary Clinton without a doubt has been a trailblazer for women around the globe and has left her mark on the collective. I will continue to keep my eye on this developing story and write about it as I find out more.
