Next in the list of profiles for the Road to 2020 series is Mayor Pete. There’s something about Mayor Pete for everyone to relate to. He’s smart (Harvard magna cum laude grad and Rhodes scholar), is conversant in seven languages, he’s a devout Christian, he’s a dedicated family man (married to his male partner so ok, maybe not everyone). He’s being called a Millennial, but astrologically he is technically at the tail end of the Pluto in Libra generation, Gen X. He plays guitar and piano. He is arguably the most well-rounded candidate in recent memory.
We don’t have a birth time for Mayor Pete – his book quotes him as being born at night and astro.com and Astrotheme suggest a time of 9 pm, but I’m rather particular about birth times and if we don’t know it to be true I would prefer not to use it. He was born at the very last degree of Capricorn, and his Moon at night, per his autobiography, would be in Sagittarius, the sign of optimism and faith. This Sagittarius Moon would bestow the confidence that he would need to continue to pursue his goals.
The 29th degree of the Sun is significant – rather than being on the cusp of the next sign, it actually marks the end of a process. It is considered to be the weakest point of the cycle of a particular sign, and in fact there begins to be some bleed-through into the next sign since around age one the individual’s Sun will progress into that next sign for the following 30 years. There is a sense with 29th degree people that they are completing a karmic assignment, for better or worse.
