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.
