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. From studying charts over the weekend, Michael, i am reluctant to say it, but it does look weighted toward Rs in the White House – you meant Inaugurated Jan ‘2009’, not ’08! ;p

    Difficult to believe after the last miserable, America-undermining 8 years, but there it is…they’ve stolen before, they’ll do it again, with tricks galore.

    One “upside” for the rest of the world is that surely America won’t be sending out election ‘monitors’ to other countries any longer when we can’t have honest ones here.

    Yet i am constantly surprised by the amount of hubris in Washington – they may continue the practice with no observable sense of irony or hyposcrisy at all. jude

  2. Dear Dianna

    hi, i am a Uranian astrologer, time travel is the ability to see the now from the future – and this has been given to us be the Nordic ETs. For this see my book LIGHT-SEEDS, out as of April 2008.

    Yes Mrs Palin fits the meme of “the mother of the realm”, and despite her obvious lack of knowing at her age, she is the in fact based on what she has so far done the most “experienced” among all the contenders in creating a “Radiant Zone” in earth change scenarios.

    The meme Radiant Zones is in my book Light-Seeds. Astrologically speaking she is inaugurated in January 2008 alonside the older man.

    – You are looking at a Kali archetype, which can go many ways.

  3. Hi Dianna, yes from what I gather he’s predicting a Palin reign.

    As a *Saturnian astrologer I’m no expert on time travel technology so Michael is your best source!
    I have always been a Jules Verne fan though…jude

  4. is michael saying that he sees Sarah Palin as President on day? Also, what is time travel technology?



    October 11, 2008 at 4:28 pm

  5. Thanks, Michael, for your insights!

  6. At this point I have eye witnesses (one client) who know the person and her family for many years, and it is best one speaks to these matters in a kind manner. Or in a neutral voice.

    From what I hear the person we are discussing is not at all in any way related to the “image” the media are projecting, either way, “good” or “bad” – there is room here for improvement.

    In other words she is not as “Aquarian” as some make her out to be.

    Her natal Jupiter, which might be the planet that matters most in 2010/11, is in its own VEDIC sign. Pisces. I am merely looking at this neutrally, as I would look at a client chart to give the best advice in terms of choices.

    You are dealing here with an Archetypal phenomenon and I am feeling comfortable to write this in retorgrade Mercury, looking again at everything everyone has stated, and at what I have researched with sources…. while staying neutral, seeing the possibility that she will be the President seen by time travel technology.

  7. […] unable to write about Sarah Palin as a choice, but I direct you to Monica Starr’s posts or Judes Threshold for some good […]


  8. Thanks, Sasha, I need all the tech help I can get!

    Actually, I returned and navigated fairly well even though it says that IE cannot display the page…yet it does.

    And since I took WordPress’ advice a couple of days ago and switched to https/Turbo, it’s been nothing but trouble with my pc’s security settings, so this could be part of the trouble, I suppose… ;p
