In a presidential candidate debate with Pluto having just turned Direct and given extra oomph by Mercury, the Gemini, Leo Rising Donald Trump did not do well. He’s got Mars in Leo rising and it came off as super-brash, bombastic and not thought out. He got Scorped by the well-prepped and poised Triple Scorpio Clinton. She also has Mars in Leo but hers is conjunct Pluto, the so-called “higher octave” of Mars.
Hillary Clinton has several birth times floating about – depending on which one is correct, she could be Scorpio Rising, Cancer Rising or Gemini Rising. I am going with the latter. It means that the debate yesterday saw her favored by Mercury – her ruler – in league with Pluto – her patron planet as a Triple Scorpio.
And leaving aside the politics of it all, the Gemini Rising chart gives her a prominent Athene. It’s at 29 Aquarius and if the Gemini Rising chart is apt, Clinton has Athene near her midheaven and in trine to her Gemini Ascendant. This fits. Athene (the actual asteroid is called Pallas but i prefer Athene, for resonance) is female power within the system, as opposed to outsider Lilith. Pallas-Athene is urbanity, she is a goddess of cities, civilization, preparation and tactics.
The Gemini Rising chart also gives Hillary Clinton Uranus Rising, which would be stimulated by Uranus in Aries AND Saturn in Sagittarius coming up. Purely off her astral, she would be reigning, more Uranian and potentially restructuring her one on one relationships in an innovative fashion. She could also be – in power – more radical than she is given credit for currently. I was always pro the multiple Virgo Bernie Sanders – Sun, Neptune, Midheaven, North Node in Virgo – a man who could clean up ANY mess. But if Hillary could go the full Uranian, as in totally futuristic and inventive.
Tangents: Imagine if there was not only the first female president of the USA but the first divorcee one? If he does not win, could Trump score a lead role in a reality television show themed around Elon Musk’s ‘life on Mars’ mission?
