Everyone knows that I like to blame Geminis and Capricorns for everything that is horrible about America right now. That’s because most of the horrible people in Donald’s Trump orbit are either Geminis or Capricorns. What I didn’t realize until just a moment ago is how many delightful, Trump-hating Librans there are in American politics.
A quick search on “Famous Birthdays” let me know that Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Gavin Newsome and Beto O’Rourke all share the same zodiac sign.
I hadn’t noticed a trend like this for a while — probably since I realized how many horrible Geminis there are in politics in general, including Trump, BoJo, Xi, Orban, and my home province of Alberta’s own wannabe despot, Jason Kenney.
The most fascinating thing about the Libra politicians that came up in my search is that the ratio between horrible Conservatives and everyone else seems to be much lower than it is with other signs.
So, maybe it’s going to be up to the Libra natives of the world to do the one thing that has been missing in politics for as long as anyone can remember: to find some middle ground. I know that people on the right want to portray Ocasio-Cortez and Omar as radical leftists, but when your own politics are so far to the right that even John McCain seems like a commie, you’re probably not the best judge of where the “middle ground” resides.
Anyway, I’m going to keep my eye on these Libra individuals and see how they fare in 2021 with an Aquarius stellium shining a spotlight on their fifth house of public performance. This should be interesting!
