Mr. Saturn’s Stars #110 Special Democratic Primary Installment

Special Democratic Primary Installment

 

Candidate Profiles

Hi kids!!! Welcome back to Mr. Saturn’s Stars. I’ve decided to take a departure from the usual fare of weekly horoscopes and instead focus on the natal charts of the various candidates currently running for the Democratic Presidential Nomination.

 

Why am I doing this? Well, aside from the candidates policies (or lack thereof) and the manufactured images of them the Mainstream Media presents us, aren’t you also curious about what the stars would reveal about who these people are in a spiritual sense? I know I am.

 

With that said, buckle your seatbelt and let’s investigate exactly who each of these characters are that would dare to want to be the POTUS.

 

 

Senator Bernie Sanders

 While Senator Sanders is a Virgo, the natural born critic of the zodiac, he also has an Aries Moon conjunct with Mars, which would serve to make him a relentless fighter for what he believes is right. These Aries planets are in turn opposed and sextiled respectively by a Venus in Libra and Jupiter in Gemini trine, giving him honor, integrity, compassion, and the ability to articulate his ideas in clear, accessible language to the average voter. In addition, he has a Mercury/Uranus trine with Pluto at the midpoint, making him a relentless and progressive seeker of truth and justice. No matter how much the mainstream media tries to either criticize or ignore this man, wherever and whenever people encounter him in person the energy represented in his natal chart projects a genuineness and honesty that is always acknowledged and admired.

 

Senator Elizabeth Warren

 With both the Sun and Venus in Cancer, Senator Warren doesn’t have to try very hard to project that folksy, Mom vibe, although with a Taurus Moon squaring Pluto in Leo she also has a very definite opportunistic streak as well. This would explain why along with fighting to restructure our country’s problem of vast income inequality she also claims to be an unabashed Capitalist. Her well-known tendency to waffle when confronted by the media is the result of her having a Mercury/Mars conjunction in Gemini squaring Saturn in Virgo and aligning with Neptune in Libra. It’s not so much that her beliefs change, or even that she’s a hypocrite, rather it’s that she wants to succeed and considers flexibility an important tool (at times even a virtue) whenever she is confronted by challenges to what she would hope to achieve. Of course there is also her Cancerian need to want to please everybody and make them happy. Needless to say, she won’t likely go to the mat on a matter if there is a chance that her overall career will be at stake.

 

Former Vice President Joe Biden

 With 4 major planets in Scorpio (Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars) former Vice President Biden is all about power. Add to that the fact that 3 of those Scorpio planets are aligning with Jupiter in Cancer and the fourth, Mars, is squaring Pluto, and what you’ll find with Joe is an arrogant and righteous nature that makes it very easy for him to justify doing basically anything he needs to in order to get ahead and maintain his position. In addition, he has a Saturn/Uranus conjunction in Gemini aligning with Neptune in Libra, making him a very convincing speaker, that is, if you’re not willing to check the facts. From his recent BS about “Corn Pop” to his mistreatment of Anita Hill, from his Obama era nickname of “Working Class Joe” to his infamy as “The Senator from MBNA,” this man is out to get ahead and he doesn’t care how.

 

Mayor Pete Buttigieg

 Mayor Pete’s Mercury in Aquarius lines up nicely with his Mars in Libra, yet it also squares his Moon in Scorpio, meaning he is a smooth talker that will say and do just about anything to get ahead. Add to this a Capricorn Sun squaring both Saturn and Pluto in Libra and one should also understand that this apparently clean cut cherub is, for the most part, more concerned with his own success than with helping others, although he is willing to be of service if he see’s that it will clearly benefit him to do so. With both Jupiter and the asteroid Ceres conjunct in Scorpio as well as an unaspected Uranus in Sagittarius, Mayor Pete also has a dark side (which he spends a great deal of effort trying to hide). If you don’t believe me consult the Young Turks investigative reporting on his firing of the Black Police Chief in South Bend as well as his fraudulent claims of support from the African-American community in South Carolina. In short, this is a young man on the make who intends to get a seat with the power brokers because deep down he is just like them.

 

Senator Kamala Harris

 On an obvious level having her Libra Sun in alignment with Saturn in Aquarius would make Kamala Harris a do it by the rules type, although on a subtler level her Mars in Leo squaring Neptune in Scorpio would speak to some deep approval issues and needing to succeed to feel good about herself. Of course her Venus, Uranus, and Pluto conjunction in Virgo would likely cause her to respond to the above observation with, “What’s so bad about wanting to succeed?” Nothing, I guess, yet one should try to be careful about the compromises that are made on the way up when there is such an emotional attachment to “success,” especially since the Senator has an Aries Moon aligning with impetuous Mars in ego driven Leo, whereby covetousness can (and likely will) clash with consistency and, God forbid, integrity.

 

Senator Corey Booker

 With a Taurus Sun and Virgo Moon in tight alignment, Senator Booker is a born reformer, although with his Venus in Aries and Mars retrograde in Sagittarius he likes to talk more like a revolutionary. In essence this rhetoric is nothing more than a harmless smoke and mirrors game he plays with himself in order to motivate his Mercury in Taurus out of its comfort zone ideology, which, in turn, is driven by a Jupiter/Pluto conjunction in detail oriented Virgo that aligns with dreamy Neptune in control oriented Scorpio. Corey Booker is a curious mix of progressive fighter and corporate negotiator who is willing to start off fighting for what’s right, but then, at a moments notice, can compromise from revolution right down to something less (and sometimes even further than that) when his advancement is at stake.

 

Andrew Yang

 As a Capricorn Andrew Yang likes to project that he is both logical and practical, although with the Moon and Mars conjunct in the often zany sign of Sagittarius, he can also confuse theory and practice like a naïve traveller will mistake a map for the terrain, sometimes resulting in unforeseen and disappointing outcomes. Essentially he is an idea guy who consistently makes the fundamental mistake of believing that improvising a good idea out of a bad situation will effectively create a new paradigm. Of course this doesn’t take into consideration that his idea might actually just be a rearrangement of circumstances rather than any real change. Nevertheless, with a Mercury/Venus conjunction in Aquarius he remains unflappable and with a Jupiter/Saturn trine in Pisces and Cancer respectively he will always be a maverick because, frankly, he doesn’t like anyone to tell him what to do. He needs to make his own mistakes, but do we need them?

 

Senator Amy Klobuchar

 A double Gemini with Mercury in the same sign, Senator Klobuchar is convinced that the world is exactly as she believes it to be. With Mars in Aries in turn fueling this manifesto she is therefore all about getting out there and getting things done. If this sounds well intentioned though severely limited, it is. It gets even worse when one realizes that in her natal chart she has both Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn, meaning that she will be experiencing simultaneous Jupiter and Saturn returns as we move into 2020. At the very least these returns will likely represent a major challenge to her philosophical outlook, which given her generally mutable nature as a Gemini and the affects of her Mars could result in her losing touch with what the people really need in favor of imposing an ideology she is convinced of. She might need an Ebenezer Scrooge moment in order to ultimately find out what the truth is, but will that be what the rest of us need if she’s the POTUS?

 

Representative Tulsi Gabbard

 

With the Sun, Venus, and Mars all conjunct in Aries and aligning with both Neptune and Pluto, Tulsi Gabbard is essentially an earthly manifestation of the Goddess of War; impetuous, courageous, and not afraid of fighting the good fight. Add to this a regal Leo Moon and the asteroid Ceres in Cancer and she is also quite capable of embodying the protective Mother Archetype as well. Perhaps though the most significant aspect in her chart is a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Libra, which then opposes Mercury in Aries. While on the one hand this line up would make her contemplative and reflective, on the other hand it would also make her outspoken, dynamic, and individualistic. It is quite appropriate that she would serve in the military and no surprise that it would be as a Medical Officer. A telling example of what is essentially a very contradictory chart would be her decision to not run again for her Congressional seat and instead commit to her Presidential campaign where she is only polling at around 2%.

Mr. Saturn’s Stars #106 Weekly Horoscopes for 10/21-10/27, 2019

Weekly Horoscopes for 10/21-10/27, 2019

 

Bernie Sanders was in NYC this week at a rally at Queensbridge Park in Long Island City, where he was endorsed by his #1 protégé, the inimitable Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

I was able to sneak into the press gaggle before the event, where I got to be in close proximity to the Great Man and Lady and snap this week’s Mr. Saturn’s Stars pic. I think the title should be, “Two Future Presidents.” What do ya think?

 

 Aries- As the Sun enters your House of Transformation and Mercury engages in an unusually slow transit through the same House (covering only 4 degrees this week) you should be prepared for some deep and difficult changes, particularly since both of these planets will be in the dark, cathartic sign of Scorpio. With Uranus opposite in your House of Self Worth expect that you won’t be amenable to most of what will go on, however, with Venus starting out the week in beneficial aspect to Saturn you’ll likely be able to suck it up and make some acceptable lemonade if all you have to work with is lemons.

 

Taurus- Niceties in your interactions with others may very well be over for the time being,  especially as the Sun passes from Libra to Scorpio and enters into your House of Relationships, where it will oppose individualistic Uranus in your sign; not exactly the right frame of mind for people to get along, if you know what I mean? Don’t be disheartened though, Venus will begin the week in alignment with stable Saturn and together those two are about long term commitment and loyalty. With Mercury having a very slow week in your House of Relationships (the Messenger planet will only be moving 4 degrees in the next 7 days) it may be hard for you and someone else to say what you really mean to one another, although your actions (or lack thereof) will say everything that needs to be said. Follow your heart.

 

Gemini- With three major planets as well as a New Moon this week in your House of Health and the deadly sign of Scorpio, you need to be careful how excited you let yourself get now as stress may end up wreaking no small amount of havoc on your physical well being. Mars in your House of Creativity will be moving into alignment with Jupiter in your House of Relationships, so make sure you know where you stand with certain individuals before you assume they will be willing to fall on their sword for you. Your sense of yourself can often be a little too self-congratulatory so before you judge anyone else, first put yourself in their position and then think what you’d do in a pinch. Selfish, erratic Uranus behind the scenes opposing the Sun entering power hungry Scorpio is about as Machiavellian as it gets and that’s something you can understand very well. In other words, don’t blame someone for being just like you if they put their own interests over everyone else’s.

 

Cancer- Saturn and Pluto in your House of Relationships will have you feeling responsible for everyone in your life now, while Mars at your Symbolic Foundation will have you asking yourself the same old question, why does it always have to be me that has to give up something in order for someone else to be happy? Interesting question, but one that can’t be answered unless for once you’re willing to put yourself first and to hell with what anybody else is pressuring you about. The New Moon in your House of Creativity opposing Uranus in your House of Groups will likely result in the apple cart being upset either at work or in a social situation, meaning that if the shit’s going to hit the fan anyway you might as well be ahead of the curve and do what makes you feel good…….And screw whoever doesn’t like it!

 

Leo- If everything isn’t as it should be on the home front, then this may very well be the week when you are forced to deal with it. The Sun, Venus, Mercury, and a New Moon will all be in your digs this week so if there’s a pink elephant in the room with you and a loved one it would be wise to either offer it a drink or get out the blunderbuss and blow it to kingdom come. If you hesitate or try to avoid the situation, expect Saturn and Pluto to turn it into a long, drawn out affair where nobody wins and everyone ends up miserable. The one blessing here (if there is one) will likely be Neptune in your House of Transformation, as the Planet of Compassion will have everyone on the same page emotionally. The trick though is for everyone to admit how they’re feeling and then perhaps this clusterf*ck may just end up getting solved.

 

Virgo- A stellium of planets are finally exiting your House of Self Worth and the balanced sign of Libra, leaving you with that frustrated feeling of having been a nice guy with nothing to show for all your pleasantness. Take heart, for the New Moon this week will be in the tough ass sign of Scorpio and will oppose individualistic, rebellious Uranus in your House of Philosophy. If no more “Mister Nice Guy” is your new motto, you’ll probably end up discovering that approach is a lot more fun. Do what you think is right, call a phony a phony, and make a personal vow not to take shit from anybody and you just might end up having one of the best weeks you’ve had in a long time. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Creativity aligning with inspirational Neptune in your House of Partnerships will be able to help you with either picking up the pieces for something that’s broke, or else flushing down the toilet any crap that’s been lingering in your life. Aaaah……now doesn’t that feel good?

 

Libra- The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon will all be in your House of Self Worth this week, with Mercury going unusually slow (moving only 4 degrees) meaning that you’ll probably be very serious about where you want to be headed and especially impatient that it seems to be taking forever to get there. Have faith, Saturn and Pluto at your Symbolic Foundation are making sure they cross every “t” and dot every “i” so that whatever you’re trying to set in motion will have a firm base for you to build on. Jupiter in your House of Communication should find you waxing poetic and/or philosophical this week, especially with Neptune in your House of Routines pumping up your sense of angst, particularly if you’ve been feeling stuck in a situation with no way out. Some of the best art has come from suffering, so face what you’re feeling and it just might show you who you really are and what you’re truly capable of.

 

Scorpio- This is your time of the year as the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon are in your sign and they all oppose individualistic, iconoclastic Uranus in your House of Relationships. This could mean that you will likely be a very hard person to pin down if anyone is pressuring you, or else you’ll be the undeniable Dom in any B and D situations you might find yourself in. Saturn and Pluto in your House of Communication will make you a person of very few words, although Neptune in your House of Creativity will make you undeniably expressive and poignant in all your interactions. Despite a sparkling charisma with Jupiter in your House of Self Worth, Neptune at a harsh angle to the King of the Planets will also give you a very intriguing and smoldering vulnerability…….In other words, get ready to be the center of attention, whether you want it or not.

 

Sagittarius- Jupiter in your sign is currently serving as a midpoint between Mercury behind the scenes and Pluto in your House of Self Worth, meaning that you could happen upon a secret now that will unlock the mystery of why you haven’t been all you can be, either at work or in any other circumstance that has been frustrating for you. Sound like a who dunnit? With 3 major planets and a New Moon all happening behind scenes in your chart, this is a time when conundrums and paradoxes will abound as unexpected situations reveal just how much you are being driven by some very deep and dark programming. It will be hard to know what the answer to any of this will be, so best to go with the flow and let your inner voice be heard…..And not just by you, there are some people in your life who need to hear this shit too!

 

Capricorn- There is a lot of activity now in your House of Groups, which in your case is governed by the dark and passionate sign of Scorpio. Uranus in your House of Creativity is looking across the zodiac at all these current Scorpio planets and trying to explain that a one size fits all philosophy doesn’t really fit anyone (much less you) so why are you dressing down? Get your Halston on and strut out into that world around you as the one and only star in your life, that’s the show everyone came to see, not whatever else you may be pretending to be as you brood yourself a tragedy. The old cliché states, “all dressed up with nowhere to go,” however, in your case it’s more like, “underdressed with everywhere to go.” Get that shit straight and get going!

 

Aquarius- As the Sun, Mercury, Venus, and a New Moon this week in your House of Career and the intense sign of Scorpio opposes individualistic Uranus at your Symbolic Foundation, you may have an epiphany about your professional goals now that will have nothing to do with what you don’t have, but will instead be about what you do have that you’re failing to see. Have you forgotten what a maverick you are just because you’ve been less successful as of late? Life has it’s cycles or, as the song say’s, “There is a time to every purpose under heaven,” so why are you thinking about conforming to the herd when it was the frustration of being in a herd that drove you to find your own way to begin with? Like the Mountain Men of the Old West who turned their backs on the encroaching civilization and its lemming-like stampede to materialism, go to the mountain top and seek your dream, you will survive, after all, it’s who you are.

 

Pisces- You are standing at a crossroads now, like Kevin Costner in “Field of Dreams” when his brother in law tells him, “sell, or you will go bankrupt,” yet at the same time the voices in the cornfield are whispering, “build it and they will come.” A stellium of planets in your House of Philosophy along with a New Moon are all opposing Uranus in your House of Logic, recreating pretty much the same scene as the movie in your own little life……So, what do you do? Jupiter in your House of Career will soon be getting a significant push from Mars in your House of Transformation, meaning that you should hope for the best, but plan for the worst and try not to fear being surprised either way……. Admittedly, this is not very logical advice, but to hell with logic, especially with Neptune in your sign apsecting both Saturn and Pluto. You need to be developing your Spidey-sense now, so use it!…….And learn to trust yourself.
