The Astrology of Hilary Clinton – A Brief Glimpse
Like with many people, we do not have a confirmed birth time for Mrs. Clinton. Astrologers are sticklers about finding accurate birth times because it really does affect our ability to read a chart. We have her birth date, October 26, 1947, and her place of birth, Chicago, Illinois, but without an accurate birth time we do not know her rising sign or any other of her angles, or any houses. We do not even know what sign her moon is in. So looking at her chart we are faced with a lot of unknowns, right off the bat.
Mrs. Clinton has sun in Scorpio, along with Chiron, Venus, Mercury and South Node. This is a lot of Scorpio energy and in some ways it gives her an air of mystery. Scorpio does like to keep secrets, not necessarily because their secrets are bad but rather because they like having privacy. So when pressed too hard about personal issues I suspect Mrs. Clinton will tell someone it is none of their business before trying to explain herself. Scorpio does have the ability to make deep plans, and contingencies, and is usually an excellent manager.
One of the strongest signatures in Mrs. Clinton's chart is a near exact conjunction between Mars and Pluto. This is about power. This is about confrontation. Mrs. Clinton is not one to back down. She would be ferocious. This conjunction is in the sign of Leo which adds to the fire of these two planets. She also has Saturn in Leo in a wide conjunction with Mars and Pluto so she would want to temper her power used with some sort of responsibility. In an unhealthy person this energy signature may indicate a fear of power, or a strong need to control, but in someone who has learned wisdom through a lot of life experience it shows an iron will and incredible courage.
We can speculate that Mrs. Clinton's moon is most likely in the sign of Pisces but that is only true if she was born before 9:30 PM. Most reports of her birth time say 8 AM or 8 PM so it is likely she was born while the moon was still in Pisces, but we just don't know for sure. If she was born after 9:30 PM her moon is in the sign of Aries instead. If her moon is in Pisces it helps bring compassion and empathy into her characteristics. If it is in Aries it brings in more leadership and warrior characteristics.
Having so many planets in fixed signs (sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Saturn, Pluto plus Chiron, and the lunar node) makes Mrs. Clinton very intractable. Fixed signs are known for their tenacity and focus on a goal. Also for their plain old stubbornness! It is very unusual to have so many planets in fixed signs but it tends to show that a person keeps working and working a their goal. For example Mrs. Clinton running for president more than once in order to achieve her goal of becoming president.
I hope you can see by this brief portrait that the birth time is incredibly important. If we knew Mrs. Clinton's rising sign and knew with certainty her moon sign it would make predictions about the outcome of this election easier to make, as well as get a better picture of her persona. If you get an astrology reading it is worth the effort to check your own birth certificate on the time in order to get your moneys worth on the reading! Of course we can tell a lot about Mrs. Clinton without a time, but if we had a time we would be able to establish deeper overall themes and get an even clearer picture of her motivations and characteristics.
