quick notes on Sara Palin’s natal chart

Sara Heath Palin, Feb 11, 1964, Sandpoint Idaho, sunrise: 7:06:26 am PST, Moon in Capricorn and in Aquarius before day ends.

~You’ll also be aware that a birth time of ‘4:40 pm’ is being used by many astrologers which gives Palin a Leo ascendant to go along with her mane of hair and attraction to being onstage.

Gov Palin’s natal Moon, at sunrise 29Cap11, is near the natal Moon of John McCain 27Cap03. although depending on her actual time of birth, natal Moon could be as late in zodiacal degrees as 8AQ08.

There are connections between her planets and those of McCain:

McCain: Sun 6Vir02 and Neptune 16Vir07; Palin: Uranus 8Vir43 and Pluto 13Vir28.

Palin’s natal Sun 21AQ55; Mars 23AQ08 are being visited by slow-moving, inspired if undermining Neptune. This is giving her a rather problematic midpoint picture and I’m not sure how it will affect her VP term if she gets it.

Because the trigger is veiling Neptune, there is some kind of masking going on with her true purpose (Sun) and action principle (Mars) which may relate to the current independent investigation of a firing of an Alaskan government employee, and what may have been personal vindictiveness on Palin’s part.

Sun/Mars = Neptune: undermining of one’s vocational position; dishonest activity; receiving notice; disappointment; feeling ‘off track’; illness; the deceived or deceptive husband.

In the case mentioned, the midpoint energy and transit may be operating in its usual ‘AC-DC’ way – from Palin, toward her, or both.

This is too quick a study for I must mosey elsewhere in a while, but looking at Palin’s Pre-Natal Eclipse Series (1 South), we see that it is the: ‘flooded with many options/ideas and their enthusiastic expression’ Series. (Brady’s ‘Predictive Astrology’) and its meaning may relate to the August 1, 2008 Solar Eclipse season we are now in because that is the Pre-Natal Eclipse Series of Senator McCain:


How relate? Both Series have to do with ‘options’ and McCain’s has a ‘worry clearing and the cosmos showing a solution with many options opening up’ flavor.

Seems Sara Palin as his VP running mate is the option to improve his prez chances!

One thing to note as well, however, is that the two Repulicans have a Nodal Axis sign ‘flip’…his North Node is in early Capricorn, hers in Cancer, which means they will either bring out the best or the worst in one another.

In transits, NN to SN is a time when associations tend to end unless they are very strong – if so, they make adjustments and become closer and more committed. If you saw the photo of them hugging today at the Dayton rally, you may agree that all seems well as of yet!

Or maybe I should say: too soon to tell, too close to call.


Update Sep 3: Oh dear. There’s been a Palin limerick posted…


Note – Sept 10: from henceforth I promise to use ‘Sarah’ rather than ‘Sara’! Thanks, Monica!  ;p


UPDATE 10.11.08: I want to add three natal midpoint pictures only one of which depends upon a birth time in which case I am using the unverified ‘4:40 pm’ chart which gives her Pluto/Mc = NN: desire to gain leadership by force. (This picture would apply if the 4:40 pm time is correct.)

Jupiter/Neptune = Mercury: rasing hopes; inspiration; talking a lot; putting on an act; changing character.

Neptune/NN = Pluto: difficulty blending one’s personal perspectives with others.

And since yesterday’s release of the investigative report on Palin’s “Trooper-Gate” scandal and the finding that she did, in fact, abuse her office in the case, I peeked at her natal asteroids which have to do with power or the abuse of it:

Hidalgo (often prominent in a woman’s chart when in a leadership role) 18Lib52 Rx…Hidalgo ‘expects to be in charge’ and was higlighted by the Sun as the report was released; fiesty and tenacious Toro 22Sag38; and Atlantis, keywords: ‘abuse of power’ at 21Lib35 Rx, also recently highlighted by the Sun.

~Atlantis also relates to America as the idyllic “New Atlantis” of the Utopians whose decendants may be part of society’s current crew of bedeviling and chaos-creating social tinkerers.~

Hidalgo’s North Node is in the 21 – 22 Aries range which is opposing Palin’s natal Hidalgo.

Plus, you’ll be happy to know that there is a personal name asteroid for ‘Sara’ which has its North Node at 00Lib+ conjunct America’s natal Midheaven in the Sibly chart (July 4, 1776; 5:10 pm LMT: Philadelphia, PA) – good for public career matters for the governor of Alaska.

  1. After working with the chart, my 20 years as an astrologer tells me that her rising is in Cancer, with a birth time around 2:40 pm PST. It would give her 27 degrees Capricorn on her 7th house cusp, with her Moon at 3 degrees Aquarius conj Merc at 1 degree Aquarius. Moon in 7th, ruler of her 1st and conj JM’s Moon, plus Merc would literally mean Older Partner, Young Protege, emotional bond based on shared ideas! I predicted on another site today that if the birth time I had rectified was near to being correct, that there would be a new problem hitting the media about her kids (Scorpio 5th, Pluto conjunct Uranus in 3rd, Uranus ruling her Moon, Moon ruling her Asc, activated by New Moon at 6 degrees Scorpio in her natal 4th)…let’s see what happens in the next couple of days. There are layers and layers of accuracy to this chart as probable birth time.

  2. yes, we’re going in so many wrong directions it’s difficult to keep up with them all, isn’t it?

  3. I registered in 1980 at my county library where I lived with my family and kept it there while I was in college. Once out of college, I moved my registration to my current county and have voted generally in every election, although I may have missed a couple of municipal ones in the early years. It is one thing to have someone cancel out my vote by voting the opposite way, but a whole different one to have my vote diluted by non-citizen voters and faux voters (dead, imaginary Mickey Mouses, etc.).

    Of course, if Congress passes the Employee Free Choice Act for unionization purposes, how long before that is extended to general elections. Isn’t that what they did in the Communist Soviet Union?

  4. Good deal, Sasha, thanks for the voter registration info. As to shenanigans in CA, it’s Lalaland, they say.

    But it seems to me the CA DMV shouldn’t include voter registration forms automatically to someone who isn’t here legally…not sure how that goes, but then I’ve always been legal and registered many moons ago age 18…DMVs weren’t in the picture then – you had to stir yourself and make the effort.

    If nothing else it sounds like the usual song and dance by both parties in the last several years meant to undermine US elections and our faith (now in shreds) in the election system!

  5. Jude, what do you think about this story?


    BTW, I checked my local county Board of Elections website. They have one-stop registration/voting. Here is the link which shows what is required to register:

    A non-citizen while here legally but ineligible to vote is likely to have any number of the items required. What is to stop them from registering/voting, even with the threat of being charged with perjury or even deportation? I can’t see the courts trying hundreds of thousands of people on perjury charges in this case.
