Chiron conjunct Pluto

The astrology of Dr. Anthony Fauci

Dr. Anthony Fauci has become, for many, the most reliable face of the Coronavirus pandemic in the US – the trusted family doctor to whom we look for answers.  Dr. Fauci has a long career as an immunologist, having served on a national level since joining the National Institutes of Health in 1968.  But for many, his most remarkable achievement has been serving a president who has not always been able to sustain long-term relationships with his staff and associates.

Dr. Fauci (born December 24, 1940, time unknown) has the Sun in Capricorn, a signature of a personality dedicated to hard work and achievement.  His Sun is harmonized by a trine to both (expansion) which denotes great confidence, and Saturn (restriction) which encourages the hard work and discipline of the Capricorn Sun.  This in itself is a great cocktail for success.  Jupiter and Saturn are conjunct, however, so the expansive qualities of Jupiter and the self-criticism of Saturn are always in conflict, especially in a young individual.  This is especially true of Dr. Fauci because Jupiter and Saturn oppose his Scorpio Moon, leading to potential isolation and feelings of loss.  In addition, his Moon is squared by both Pluto (destruction and regeneration) and Chiron (wounding and healing), and these two planets of crisis and renewal also form a challenging square to Jupiter and Saturn.  And then Mars (drive and desire) is also strongly placed in its own sign of Scorpio, a position of power and influence, opposed by Uranus the rebel.  Fauci is not and could not be a “Yes Man” – he is wired to forge his own way and speak his own truth, something which likely led to his voluminous research (the Institute for Scientific Research states that he is […]

Bernie Sanders: Attack on the heart

Bernie Sanders was hospitalized this week for a procedure to place stents in the heart.  Originally it was said that this was a procedure to open a blocked artery, but it was later revealed that he did actually have a heart attack.  He apparently has no history of heart disease.

As I wrote earlier this year in a profile of his candidacy, Sanders is undergoing some stressful planetary cycles right nowFor those of you who like the astrological details:

  • Transiting Uranus is exactly square to his natal Pluto which also conjoins Chiron
  • Transiting Pluto is within a degree of a square to his natal Moon and will, next year, also square his Mars.
  • Transiting Neptune is within a degree of an opposition to his natal Sun.

All of these outer planet cycles put a lot of pressure on the body as well as the psyche, and for someone in their late 70s, not to mention someone in the heat of a presidential campaign who has fallen to third place in the polls,  this can be quite stressful.

I wish Mr. Sanders all the best in his healing journey and a smooth recovery.
