I’m sitting in the Houston airport with my back to the TV. I’m not sure what time American Idol comes on in this time zone (what time zone am in, anyway?) so I assumed that the deafening applause I just heard was for the two Davids competing on tonight’s Idol. I was wrong. The noise came from supporters of Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton before she delivered her victory speech in Kentucky.
Throughout the campaign, when friends have asked me who I think will win the Democratic nomination, I’ve consistently said I don’t know. However, I’ve always been sure that the worse things looked for Hillary, the better she would perform. Why? Because she’s a Scorpio, and natives of this sign don’t give up until they’re dead.
Hillary was born Oct. 26, 1947 in Chicago. Her birth time hasn’t been confirmed, but StarIQ’s Michael WolfStar uses an 8 a.m. time. Here’s the chart: http://www.stariq.com/Main/Articles/P0007653.HTM
Pundits such as New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd have commented on Hillary’s shape-shifting on the campaign trail. I think that has been due to transiting Neptune in Aquarius squaring her Mercury in Scorpio and forming the fourth part of a grand fixed cross in her chart. If she had become what Dowd dubbed “the Scranton gal” earlier this year, she might have sewn up the nomination by tapping into the rising frustration of working-class voters as Saturn transits Virgo.
She’s become so much more comfortable in her skin over the past couple of months. I’m glad she ditched the black pantsuits that she wore during her New York senatorial campaign for more flattering jewel colors. (No, I don’t think it’s sexist to comment on what a candidate, male or female, is wearing in a campaign that is so image-driven.) I really wanted to believe her last night when she declared, “As Kentucky goes, so goes the nation.” But I don’t think she really believed it herself. It was a joke she was sharing with us.
Even though we don’t have a time of birth for Hillary, many astrologers are expecting her to drop out of the campaign when transiting Uranus hits her Moon in Aquarius, which could be any day now, depending on what chart you’re using for her. Today, transiting Uranus in Pisces is sextile Jupiter in Capricorn, lighting up Hillary’s natal Moon in Pisces and electrifying her Mercury in Scorpio. Her star has never shined as brightly. But is it a shooting star?
