November 27 is Steve Bannon’s birthday.
It’s no secret that I loathe the Trump administration and anything to do with the Trump administration. But, as I keep telling myself, I’m not an American and I shouldn’t get worked-up over something that does not have a great deal of consequence in my life. If Americans want to flush themselves down the toilet by handing their power over to monsters like Donald Trump and Steve Bannon, that’s their problem, not mine.
Steve Bannon does have a monstrous natal chart. I don’t mean that his chart predisposes him to monstrous behavior, but his planets are laid out in a troublesome manner. He has Venus in detriment in Scorpio, Mars in detriment in Libra, and Jupiter in detriment in Gemini. I wish that I had a birth time for him to put these things into context, but I don’t.
Long ago, I was taught that difficult charts produce successful individuals, and that easy charts do exactly the opposite.
Last November, I wrote a profile of Sean Young. The actress has a chart that is sort of the opposite of Steve Bannon’s chart: defined by a generous amount of planets in their dignities. Sean Young may have had some major highlights in her career, but her name has become synonymous with unrealized potential — quite the opposite of what her chart might indicate at first glance.
Bannon, on the other hand, has the horoscope of someone who has thrived despite his cosmic shortcomings. It’s a challenging chart, and he deserves kudos for succeeding despite his planetary placements.
That doesn’t mean that I find him any more acceptable than I did before I looked him up. I still believe that he’s a monster, and I thank my lucky stars to know that I don’t share citizenship with him.
