October 13 is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s birthday.
I like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, not because of her politics, but because she triggers conservatives the way that Donald Trump triggers liberals. People on the far right of the political spectrum spend far too much time scrutinizing everything she does. Frankly, they give her far more power than she deserves, considering her rank and influence in her own party.
Anyway, the thing that interests me the most about the Congresswoman is that she shares her sun/moon combination with Kamala Harris, another American politician with a flair for getting under the skin of Republicans. Just the other day, Donald Trump Jr. asked his Twitter followers why Kamala Harris is “the only person who laughs at her jokes”? Harris responded to the President’s dimwitted son by telling him “You wouldn’t know a joke if one raised you.”
AOC and Kamala aren’t the only famous women with the Libra sun/Aries moon combo who loathe Trump. Using the search tool on astrotheme.com, I found a few notorious, vocal Trump haters on the first page of results alone, including Cardi B, Amber Rose, Martina Navratilova and Anne Rice.
I often use the phrase “wishy washy” to describe Libra natives in general. I have Libra rising, and I believe I have a pretty good grip on the characteristics that define the sign. Nevertheless, I also have my sun and moon in opposing signs, and I appreciate how the dynamics between the two luminaries change when they reside in opposite signs. In the case of these women, the Aries moon imparts the directness that someone with strong Libra influences in their horoscope often lacks. An Aries moon is like a gift from the heavens for a Libra individual. It makes them into someone who can get things done.
For that reason, I’ve got high hopes for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Still, I’ve got my eyes on Kamala Harris at the moment. Her politics are a little closer to my politics. Perhaps I’ll give AOC the credit she deserves when she’s got a few more credits on her resume.
