Hillary Clinton: The Ultimate Scorpio

#HRC Hillary Rodham Clinton s a Scorpio with her Moon in Pisces. Everyone who has described her has emphasized her Scorpionic traits: persistence, intensity, laser-like focus, long memory, loyalty, the passionate pursuit of that which is desired. 

Scorpios are also private, even secretive. When they speak about her compassion, empathy, lifelong advocacy, concern and care for children, they're talking about her tender Moon in Pisces, hidden way down in her 4th House, the most private place in her Natal Chart. Even if she wanted to - even if she used her mighty Mars in Leo ("fight" might be the most used word in her vocabulary: "I fought" / "I'll fight", etc.), she still couldn't succeed in exposing us, the public, to her most private emotions. 


Trump also has Mars in Leo. He's a "fighter" as well - but he fights for himself and his ego (Mars conjunct his Leo Rising). 


Everything people hate about her can be found in her 12th House. Sun, Chiron, Venus and Mercury in Scorpio, in the place of subconscious/unconscious, hidden enemies, secrets, confinements, dissolving of ego boundaries. Her intensity is seen as obsession, her focus as devouring greed, her sacrifice as selfishness. Impossible to NOT be misunderstood with a 12th House like this - also impossible not to be underestimated.


President Obama said of her: "She was doing everything I was doing, but like Ginger Rogers: backwards and in heels!"


The public may never really "know" Hillary, but for 40 years she's been the big screen for our collective projections (Neptune in Libra in her 11th House). We may never "know" her, she may never satisfy our curiosity. If she cries we'll call her weak, if she doesn't weep we'll call her cold-hearted. What's important about her chart and the way she's intrinsically wired is that she will NEVER give up. She just isn't capable of it.


When she addresses the DNC Thursday, July 28th in Philadelphia, the Moon will be in her 7th House by the time she steps onstage to make her acceptance speech. She will try to be all things to all people. Transiting Mars conjunct her natal 1st House Jupiter will expand her toughness. Transiting Jupiter in Virgo in her 10th House will enlarge her public image as rational and analytical, but opposes her tender (yes, tender) Moon in Pisces, "hidden" in her 4th House, where only her most intimate friends and family ever see it. Ironically, it's what America wants to see from her - will she give us a peek, or will her famous Scorpio Rising privacy fetish hold fast? 

Transiting Sun in Leo squares her natal Scorpio Sun, challenging her to rise to peak performance level and embrace the drama, making it her own. Transiting Venus in Leo conjunct her natal Saturn in her 9th House (AND squaring her natal Mercury) would vote for dressing the part - maybe something with a subliminal paramilitary theme, like Cersi's coronation dress in Game of Thrones. :)
