January 17 is Michelle Obama’s birthday.
I adore Michelle Obama. Unfortunately, as far as her natal chart is concerned, she’s a bit of a mystery to me. When I’m speculating with abandon on this blog, I’m usually doing it with a couple of chart elements set in stone: even without a birth time, there are several things I can ascertain about an individual. But without the ability to establish a rising sign and her moon sign up in the air (it’s either Aquarius or Pisces), I don’t know where to start.
If I had to guess, I’d say that she’s got an Aquarius moon. She definitely has a Capricorn sun and Mercury, and an Aquarius moon would give her a similar configuration to a friend of mine who also has dignity to spare. Both are fit, fabulous and truly generous with their time and talents. When they say that Capricorns get better with age, I think of women like Michelle Obama and the friend I just mentioned.
What’s really amazing is that these women also share this planetary combination with the last Capricorn president: Richard Nixon. Ha! Nixon actually has a crazy chart that astrologers can talk about for days, so perhaps that’s not the best comparison.
Back to the drawing board . . .
