A Look at Brett Kavanaugh's Natal Astrology Chart

Seeing how Brett Kavanaugh has been so much in the news lately, I thought it would be interesting to do a google search for Brett Kavanaugh's natal astrology chart online. This search led me to the following page:

https://www.astrotheme.com/astrology/Brett_Kavanaugh

According to the article and the natal data given, Brett Kavanaugh's birth time is unknown. Nevertheless, from the zodiacal positions and placements of the planets on the day of his birth, and from news about Brett Kavanaugh from the hearings, certain things suggested themselves quite strongly to me as to where his Ascendant might be. Judging from the way he held onto his 1982 calendar, and marked everything on it, it seems to me that he probably has a super organized, detail oriented Virgo Ascendant.

Brett has three planets in Virgo, all retrograde: Uranus, Pluto and Mars. Being born in 1965, or the counterculture explosion of the mid 60s, which was marked by the big Uranus / Pluto conjunction, Brett has these two planets conjunct in Virgo within two degrees of exact. I would venture that of these three planets, Brett probably has Mars retrograde nearest to his Ascendant. His Mars is at 26 degrees of Virgo, and I would put his Ascendant at 27 or 28 degrees of Virgo, putting his retrograde Mars on the twelfth house side of his Ascendant. Brett's Mars, with its rage, aggressiveness and anger, seemed to be front and center in the hearings, and generally what is on one's Ascendant is very prominently on display. Donald Trump also has Mars, the planet of libido, conjunct his own Ascendant, and this would make both men highly sexed. But with Mars retrograde (Trump's Mars is direct) Brett could have deep insecurities about his masculinity and a constant need to prove himself. With Mars on the twelfth house side, with the twelfth house dealing with hidden or repressed factors, this can be a real problem area for him.

Uranus retrograde and Pluto retrograde would also be in Brett's twelfth house, right behind Mars and deeper into the twelfth house. The combination of these two particular retrograde planets would denote a lot of repressed demons and a need for power, manipulation and control (Pluto) combined with the volatility of Uranus; with Uranus retrograde in the twelfth, there may be deep seated fears of being different, of being a misfit - thus exacerbating his need to prove himself with the in crowd. Pluto in the twelfth house is also connected with a persecution complex, like he felt like he was receiving the mark of fate. As I said previously, the Uranus / Pluto conjunction of the mid sixties was closely associated with the explosion of the hippie counterculture - and with this conjunction in his twelfth house of hidden or repressed factors, there is the possibility that Brett might actually be a closet liberal, or much more so than he lets on - or that his explosive, radical nature, as embodied in these two planets, has been carefully channeled or sublimated into his dedication to conservative politics to remake the country.

What does astrology have to say about Brett's drinking problem? Plenty! It jumps right out at you with the tight Jupiter / Neptune opposition aligning along the Taurus / Scorpio axis. People who have hard aspects, like a square or an opposition, between these two planets often have problems with drug, alcohol and substance abuse, in whatever house these planets should fall. Brett's Jupiter / Neptune opposition is quite strong, only three degrees away from exact on the day of his birth. And with these two planets aligning along the receptive Fixed signs of Taurus / Scorpio, there can also be a lot of deep seated subconscious issues bringing to bear on his drinking problem as well.

But what about his problems with women? Here again, Brett's planets have a lot to say. Most specifically, his Venus in Aquarius is tightly conjunct his Black Moon Lillith - only two degrees away from exact. In a man's chart, Venus tends to be associated with women found to be sexually "hot" or attractive, and with Brett's Venus in Aquarius, this type of woman would be the brainy intellectual or the libertine free spirit - real or perceived. Black Moon Lillith, especially in a man's chart, represents the dark side of the feminine, and can be that aspect of the feminine that the man most fears or resents. So, suffice it to say that, with this Venus / Lillith conjunction, Brett has a lot of deep seated issues with women. If Brett's Ascendant is in Virgo, then his Venus in Aquarius would probably be in his sixth house, which is a real problem placement for Venus, the house of its fall; chief issues here would be a deep lack of self esteem and feelings of personal unworthiness in love.

While Venus in a man's chart represents the woman who turns him on for a romantic fling, the Moon in a man's chart represents the woman he is most likely to marry. And Brett has his Moon in Cancer, which indicates that his marrying type is a very traditional, domestically oriented family loving supermom. The Moon is in her domicile sign in Cancer, and so, Brett has very strong and deep seated feelings, and really, a very sensitive, emotional nature deep down. But if Brett's Ascendant is in Virgo, as I believe it most probably is, then there is a good chance that his Moon might be in the tenth house, which is the house of the Moon's detriment or exile. The tenth house is the house of career, and corresponds naturally with Capricorn, the sign opposing Cancer, the Moon's domicile - and so the Moon is in exile in the tenth house. The situation with this placement of the Moon would be having a lot of deep, tender feelings inside, but having to sweep them all under the rug so he can push ahead with his career and climb to the top. Since the Moon also represents one's family tradition and the expectations of one's family for the individual, chances are that Brett's family and upbringing placed a high premium on career success - even at any cost.

So- there you have it. I am not absolutely positive about the Virgo Ascendant conjunct Mars, but it just so worked out in Brett's case that a lot of other things seem to fit if one works on the chart from this vantage point. This is not exactly standard technique for rectifying the birth time and Ascendant in astrology, but in Brett's case, a lot of things seem to fit and fall into place with this.

Vaccines and Autism - and Politics

I was very disappointed to find that the discussion thread about the anti-vaccination video, The Silent Epidemic, had been locked as being "off topic". This is a political website, and there is no part of the health and medicine field that is more inherently political than that of vaccinations. And the key political issue at stake is the right of the individual and/or his or her legal guardian to have control over what is put into their bodies. It's where the rights of the individual and the political will of the society interface, and where exactly one defines the boundaries over what is ethical and proper in a democracy. And, sad to say, this remains a very controversial, even explosively controversial, topic on this website. Therefore, I would not say that it is off topic; it is inherently very political, and hence very on topic for a political website that is interested in democracy, like this one. The only problem is its explosively controversial nature.

As someone who has an autism spectrum disorder who was finally diagnosed late in life, and also as someone who has had a serum antibody test for biocompatibility to dental materials that revealed an adverse immunoligical reaction to Thimerosal, a key additive / preservative used in vaccines, done on me prior to my autism spectrum diagnosis, I cannot help but believe from personal experience in the link between vaccines and autism. For goodness' sake, why couldn't a simple serum antibody screening test to common suspected ingredients in vaccines, like Thimerosal, be offered as an option for the children of concerned parents with the option to exempt their children from being vaccinated if the results came back positive? In a society that was truly democratic and politically sane and reasonable about this issue, the rights and prerogatives of the individual who tested positive would be honored above the profits of the drug companies that make the vaccines. And Democrats should stand up for democracy, and for individual rights.
