President Sanders ? Bernie At A Glance

Virgo Bernie Sanders is sure to be favoured by the Pluto/Virgo generation, especially with his Saturn in earthy Taurus. He is running a 'grass-roots' campaign, how Earth signy is that ? Also, with Pluto in Leo, he's one of the Baby Boom crowd, the rock stars.

His ruling planets are Mercury and Mars. Definitely has smarts. Virgo is also co-ruled by Ceres (Demeter), the grain Goddess, so wonder how he'd handle McSanto, if he was elected president. Hilary Clinton was a lawyer for them, at one time.

Interestingly, he has no planets in signs proceeding Libra, so not surprising he wasn't that visible on the public radar until now, he was busy honing himself, first.

Mars and Venus are opposed in their own, cardinal houses of Aries and Libra, so that lone rebel wolf Mars energy has likely been balanced with Venusian charm and social skills. Or, if not, he may have relationship issues around Me vs We. He is good at starting things, a self-starter. Saturn in Taurus helps him stick to a plan (or get stuck), where his Aries Moon/Mars and Gemini Jupiter might otherwise get bored and fidgety. Mars in Aries likes to think and act independently, directly, passionately.

A man of the people, but also a man unto himself.

I have never heard him speak and read only a little about him (I plan to after writing this), except that I see he's kind of come out of the woodwork of Vermont and earned the trust of many people. As a Virgo with Jupiter in Gemini in good aspect to his Aries Moon, he probably has no trouble winning people over with his words when he is able to use gentle persuasion over demands. Jupiter in Gemini works well for the US political scene.

I notice in a lot of pics of him, he is speaking with his index finger pointing up, which is the Jupiter finger. Jupiter in communicative Gemini. Jiminy cricket.

Lilith in Taurus - sexually he is lusty, passionate, likes a woman who is a sensual, earthy Goddess or this is characteristic of his feminine side. A good placement for Lilith, the primal woman. Also said to indicate secrecy around finances.

He's a 5 lifepath, so quite stubborn and rebellious but also has magnetism. This lifepath ('constructive freedom') resonates with his Moon and Mars in Aries as well as Saturn in Taurus (the 'constructive part - possibly dad or grandparent instilled some good, old fashioned morals and/or work ethics, there).

Saturn Taurus/Uranus Gemini conjunction, one wants to constrict, the other wants to blow, so I imagine, along w the Aries Mars/Moon, Bernie has a short fuse or two when the pressure builds. Saturn is the limits of the known universe, of what is possible, and in Taurus can mean blocked energy or excessive caution. Uranus is the land beyond our limitations where anything is possible if you are crazy enough to try. In Gemini, it's air quality is amplified. Either he can make brilliant ideas tangible or will have trouble doing this because of Saturn being a stick in the mud. Virgo, too, is pragmatic, especially where money is concerned, but Aries says, throw caution to the wind. 

In tactical terms, Saturn/Uranus also brings to mind the issue of Israel and nuclear weapons, but also of environment and energy technology. Transits to these planets will will tell how the combined energy expresses itself.

Definitely ecologically and economically minded. Not likely a big spender and doesn't think the average citizen should be, either. He would invest in education, though and be concerned with the welfare of children/families. He reminds me of an old-time, family doctor. Lilith in Taurus as shadow can also be the antithesis of this - Lilith the baby-eating succubus.

North node and Neptune conjunct in Virgo means he is on a path of earthly service, driven by a soul urge to make practical his utopian, Piscean visions. For many lifetimes, he must have fought for his ideals and homeland with weapons, now he will do it with words and by other non-violent means, but fuelled by he same fire.

A few stars of note...

Never quite sure about these old, star interpretations, but with his Moon in Aries conjunct Mars, he would have a soul lineage of battle, and I tend to see stars as lights/signals from the distant past (which they literally are).

Mizar (conjunct Sun): Said to be unfortunate/Mars-like, connected with "fires and mass catastrophe." One of the mourning sisters of 7 stars of Ursa Major, which have war associations. Perhaps if he becomes president he might end up having some kind of unwanted legacy around war or fires (or this is past karma). He might also piss off the war-mongerers and of course bankers, who could make things difficult in retaliation for his wanting to 'break up the banks'.

Pleiades (conjunct Saturn) - also said to be unfortunate, causing accidents, blindness. Ok, again, old interpretations. Bernie wears glasses, not sure if he's had any accidents. The Pleiades also signify 'homosexuality and feminine power', which were not considered 'fortunate', back when. Perhaps he will face some harsh opposition, as a champion of rights for women and gay folk. It's possible his sometimes fixed vision might create 'blind spots'. Likely he would appoint plenty of women to his office.

Acamar (conjunct Mars) - "Success in public office", a fortunate, Jupiter type star.

  1. You think he'll become President?

  2. Well, I'm not into making predictions, just an interpreter ! But the other side looks pretty grim as far as candidates go and the sad truth is, even if Hilary was more on the level, America still isn't ready to welcome a woman president with open arms, so will look everywhere else, first. (She's helping him, actually, like she did Obama). A lot of folks are fed up to here with the BS. The times, they may be a-changin'. Bernie's Mars energy is very strong, and people seem to like that.

  3. I will say this - His Mars and Moon really resonate with the Uranus in Aries, Promethean energy. he might just be that hero that steals the fire and gives it to the people !
