Update July 6, 2010: Harry Reid and Sharron Angle are having themselves quite a heated tussle.
Original post begins here:
Born in Klamath Falls, Oregon on July 26, 1949, November 2010 Republican nominee for Nevada’s US Senate seat, Sharron Angle, has quite a controversial political record.
But that’s not the purpose of this post. Its purpose is to take a brief astro-peek at an up-and-coming Republican lady of note and see what can be seen – and in Angle’s case, it’s Leo, Leo, Leo, and more Leo.
Proud, entertaining, and possessed of a deep need for approval, applause, and affection, Sharron Angle was born with Sun 3Leo+, Moon 9 – 24 Leo (birth hour unknown), Mercury 2 – 5 Leo, Pluto in mid-degrees of Leo.
Her Mars and Uranus are closely conjoined around 2Can+ which places two of her midpoints conjunct natal Sun and Mercury (which are
‘cazimi’ with Mercury so near the Sun, a condition said in olden days to strengthen the planet, here, Mercury, her thinking and communicating planet.)
The two midpoints are hard working Mars/Saturn and brittle Saturn/Uranus so we may wish to consider the midpoint pictures influencing Angle’s adult personality, essence, and life purpose (Sun) and her thinking processes, communicating abilities, and other mercurial associations:
Mars/Saturn = Sun: eking it out; a sense of loss; the inability to meet all demands or to master all situations; possible health threat.
Mars/Saturn = Mercury: indecision; separating from the issues; thoughts don’t know where to go, any alternative seems inappropriate; thoughts of separation; bad news.
Saturn/Uranus = Sun: rebelliousness; egocentric drive against controls; separations in order to find one’s way; physical exposure to severe tests of strength; an inflexible character.
Saturn/Uranus = Mercury: making great demands on one’s nervous energy; an ability to hit back hard under provocation; organizing resistance; separating oneself from others; necessary changes; necessary stages of re-thinking; decisions to be made about doing things in new ways.
(Midpoints: Tyl; Ebertin; any, all, or none may apply on various levels and are subject to stimulation by transits or progressions.)
That last interests me since Angle’s website has recently been updated morphing some of her more radical positions on certain issues into more moderate stances. Her state record is chocked full of No votes, as you may remember, since she’s well known for it.
(Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. However, voting No on every issue can seem….well, truculent rather than constructive. Perhaps this pile-up of planetary energies concentrated around 2 – 5 Leo explains some of Angle’s one-sidedness since Leo is the sign of ego, stubborness, with its first 5 degrees marking the most Leonine area of the zodiac.)
Both Mars and Uranus are out-of-bounds so they may not ‘play nice’ with the other kids and their very close conjunction makes for an unrestrained, forceful, and energetic pursuer of goals and a risk-taker; hopefully her Saturn provides enough stability to make playing by the rules more of a possibility. Mars/Uranus conjoined indicates one who challenges powerful governmental officials, and threats may be used against them when public support backs her up (which helps to dramatize her point.)
Also conjunct Sun and Mercury is asteroid Atlantis, which has associations with America, the Atlantic Ocean, and well…the myth of Atlantis; the asteroid has these keyphrases: a sense of doom and/or abuse of power.
Now you know that natal Moon in Leo often has a bossy streak with its ‘reigning need’ (Tyl) for applause and such, as noted above. And with Jupiter 26Cap26 Rx, she’s got that mavericky thing goin’ on, supported by a quirky, unpredictable Mars/Uranus conjunction which can also have a ‘maverick’ vibe.
Plus, 26 – 27Cap puts natal Jupiter at the Midheaven of our nation’s inaugural charts each year (Jan 20, noon, DC) so perhaps dreams of a White House run taunt Sharron Angle as they’ve done Sarah Palin.
After all, Angle was born into the creative 5 North Solar Eclipse Series with its key concepts of: prophetic dreams, visions, hunches, and flashes of ideas which can be acted upon (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology’) so she fits in with Washington’s illuminated ideology of world domination if not its mainstream script of GOP talking points for November 2010.
Now here are a few details on Sharron Angle’s volatile, dramatic double-Fire combo of Sun Leo/Moon Leo personality blend with its typically self-centered perspective:
Leo-Leo is a magnetic, authoritative presence that can be warm and enthusiastic, playful, proud, and vain. Able to inspire others with a powerful intellect, this combo is larger than life and loves playing on the ‘Big Time’ stages of the world. But with a tendency to forget details, others are expected to take care of life’s smaller tasks since Leo-Leo has much more important things to do, things where it can shine.
Yes, this blend can be either tyrannical and despotic or a beneficent ruler, and the magnitude of her regal bearing dazzles few people more than herself. This is not an easy ego to satisfy and it commands the absolute attention of everyone within her environment. Her sense of self is mythological in its proportions and a childlike naivety may attach itself to what might be best described as a radiant personality.
Angle can be fiercely loyal, generous, and trusting on one hand, yet jealous, demanding, difficult to please, and imperiously cold on the other if the sort of attention and gratitude she feels is deserved is not forthcoming.
A caution is gullibility with a tendency to let flattery impair judgment, and please stand a safe distance away when things don’t go her way for titanic temper tantrums are legendary with a Leo-Leo blend.
There are two ‘Images for Integration’ for Sun Leo-Moon Leo:
“A child in an Edenic paradise builds a beautiful sandcastle in the sunshine with all the creatures of nature in joyous attendance…In full pageantry, the new king is crowned before his kingdom.”
(‘Sun Sign-Moon Sign’ by Charles & Suzy Harvey.)
Well, if there was ever a poster child for my description of ‘political thespians’ it would have to be a Leo-Leo-Leo! And as Noel Tyl adds, “Ambition is forceful, dramatic, and usually successful. A glamorous front can hide a stern, hard, commanding nature. Pride and vanity are strong. Retaliation is the weapon of choice when things do not go one’s way.”

And btw: Sharron Angle shares a natal Sun Leo-Moon Leo personality blend with President Herbert Hoover. Hmm. Thought you might want to know. You have been warned.
