Leon Panetta June 28, 1938

Born in Monterey, California to a restaurant family, you don’t need a correct birth time for Leon Panetta to see that he is a double Cancer with Sun and Moon in the sign of family, comfort food, and Security issues.

You may wish to read more of my Astrology notes on Panetta’s natal chart here including his Sun Cancer-Moon Cancer persoanlity blend:


A Washington insider from way back, Mr. Panetta served under Bill Clinton most memorably as Chief of Staff although he was Director of the Office for Civil Rights for a time during the Nixon administration.

Checking 1938 for his Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (PE), we find that he was born into the 12 South Series which last manifested June 30, 1992 (9Can) and next occurs July 11, 2010 (19Can.)

Key issues for the 12S Series are:

successful outcomes to long-term worries or illness; things seem worse but then clear with successful results (paraphrasing Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology.’)

Panetta’s PE occurred May 29, 1938 at 7Gem31 – where Midas has been transiting last year and this. Asteroid Midas retrogrades a lot so ‘he’ tends to hang out in one spot of the zodiac  for quite a while, counting all his hoarded gold and cornering the market.

(See post on the backwardation of gold – it’s all bought up as of Dec 2, 2008…no gold for you. But soup-lines we got with more on the way.)

If you follow the above link you’ll find Panetta’s major midpoint picture (which applies no matter his hour of birth) with Jupiter, Pluto, and Uranus in the mix – and radical reformer Uranus is conjunct his natal Midas (17Tau) – I neglected to note this in the above-linked post.

Now the 12S Eclipse Series is the also the PE of:

Harry Truman, the Statue of Liberty (Aug 8, 1884), Nixon’s resignation (Aug 8, 1974), Miley Cyrus, and the United States of America.

That’s some crew, isn’t it? America does seem to resonate quite closely with Miley – and with Richard Nixon’s resignation. Oh – and we’re fond of the Statue of Liberty, too – once we got accustomed to having her about the place.

  1. Hi Donna, thanks for posting your insights!

    Yes, he has ties to the string-pullers and may be one himself. (Look where he’s about to roam again.)

    One signature of this i relate in my article linked above to Jupiter-Pluto = Uranus, but there are more factors, of course. You know that when i see Jup-Pluto, Sun-Pluto, and Pluto-Chiron, i get the bejeebies for the common man.

    And that’s not counting Jupiter-Neptune which can be so lovely and spiritual — or the speculative-wastrel-spendthrift pairing we suffer from these days. And even worse – it’s taxpayers’ money they’re spending and risking – never their own, the sots.

  2. Hi Jude,
    Leon has quite a biography.
    A bright young man makes good, with wife and three sons in tow.
    Is it me, or has it been said he has ties to the puppets behind the powers that be?
    When I heard of his appointment, I thought well, they had to put someone in the hot spot to promote unannounced goals with the president. It feels like Obama is being encircled in such a way that he’ll only be able to claim, “I was President of the US.”
    His power arms and legs are being propped up by other behind the scenes powers.
    I feel silly repeating all the “behind the curtain” stuff, but I do believe it and I believe the globe is run by a few, while little provinces cheer for their favorite football team, waving their national flag, waiting in line for foodstamps.
    Our government does not help small businesses get off the ground. Quite the opposite. The upper realms are kept free for the “in” crowd. Unless you are Steve Jobs, or am I wrong there, too?
    Meanwhile, even the most wealthy have the same living issues the rest of us have.
    Donna D.
