- Clinton was going through her 2nd Saturn return
- SP Moon square Saturn – “advancing ambition”, SP Moon crossing the 7th cusp (public expression) and exactly opposing Mercury, which rules her midheaven (career opportunity)*.
So she tells you that she plans to run for presidency. Being gifted with unusual foresight, you somehow have the sense that she isn’t going to win because of a certain charismatic opponent in Illinois.
What do you tell her? If you know astrology you say:
“Go for it Hilary, this action is going to firm up the direction you’ll be following for the rest of your career – it looks very positive, and I think your ambition will be rewarded with success.”
And you will be right, too. This is a perfectly clear statement for the Saturn return and SP Moon=Saturn.
You say, “but she failed! She didn’t become the president.”
But if she didn’t run, do you think she would have gotten the position of a US secretary of state – a super high profile international work that she describes as both challenging and exciting? Would you call that failing?
I don’t think so. And astrology doesn’t say that either.
Sometimes the only way to fail is to not try something because of a fear of failure.
