Brief Bill Clinton's Birth Chart Overview

I plan to do posts on other presidents. I choose Bill Clinton’s chart to do first because I happen to have it printed out. The chart I’m using is Tropical Whole Signs.

Clinton’s Sun sign is Leo. His Moon is in Taurus, and his ascendant is Libra. He is a strong Leo. The Sun rules Leo, and in his chart, Leo is governed by the Sun. He is confident, adventurous, loves to have fun and creative.

The first thing I notice while looking at Clinton’s chart is that he has no water in his chart! None. Water is associated with emotions and intuition. Does that mean he has no feelings? Nah. He is mostly air which is not shocking since he loves to communicate and take action.

As far as the modes go, he is mostly fixed. That indicates he isn’t fond of change. He likes stability. According to his chart, he is not very mutable which means he doesn’t adapt or transform well.

His Mercury is in Leo. That leads me to believe he would be a great teacher because he loves to acquire knowledge and he has excellent communication skills.  Looking at this overall chart, and if this were not Bill Clinton’s chart, I would recommend this person teach for a living. A lot of this chart is about learning and spreading that knowledge.

Clinton’s first house is ruled by Venus. I’m sure it shocks no one that that shows he is flirtatious and affectionate. It also shows he is possessive which I don’t think we see in his public life.

The sixth house is about career and money. His sixth house is ruled by Jupiter. I would warn him of not working too hard. It doesn’t always mean the person is a hard worker. It also can show someone committed to their work.

Astrology Birth Chart Lesson# 1

This is our first mini birth chart lesson. All you need is about 10-15 minutes and a birth chart (preferably yours). To get a free birth chart for yourself, you can go to Astrograph.com or just search free birth chart. You’ll need to know your date of birth, the location of birth and what time you were born. By the way, if you aren’t sure what time you were born, some astrologers can figure it out for you.

Top Five Astrology Books for Beginners

top astrology books for beginners.png
  1. The Only Astrology Book You’ll Ever Need by Joanna Martine. Excellent book, but I hate to tell you it is definitely NOT the only astrology book you’ll ever need. It is a great first book to read. It is easy to understand with no prior knowledge of astrology. It spends quite a bit of time on sun signs which probably makes astrologers want to throw this book across the room.

    It’s nice to have a copy of a birth chart when using this book. This book made me comfortable looking at a chart. However, don’t be like me and try to do a 10-page birth chart analysis from just using this book. It will not go well. It won’t be accurate because you need to know more than what is in this book.

    The book covers moon and ascendant signs, cusps, and houses. It also goes into detail on each planet. I do recommend this book. Obviously. But know this is only the beginning.

  2. Astrology for Yourself: How to Understand And Interpret Your Own Birth Chart by Demetra George and Douglas Bloch. This book was recommended to me by my astrology teacher. It’s great to read if you still have an interest in astrology of reading the first book on this list.

    It’s not just a book: it is a workbook. Have your birth chart ready. You can get yours free here. By the end of the book, you will have an interpretation of your chart. This book is easy to understand and great if you want to know more about yourself and learn astrology at the same time. I think it is best to learn astrology by studying yourself first.

  3. Psychological Astrology And The Twelve Houses by Noel Eastwood As a psychology major, I appreciate that Eastwood created this book. This book starts at the beginning. It begins with the twelve houses. It also covers the Ascendant and the very important Midheaven. It breaks down the four elemental houses (AKA trinities). Eastwood also offers meditations!

  4. Modern Astrology: Harness the Stars to Discover Your Soul's True Purpose by Louise Edington This is a self-help type of astrology book, but don’t be fooled, there is a lot of astrology covered here. She includes the houses, aspects, transits and more. You will learn a ton about reading a natal chart. The book has activities and meditations which I always find helpful. I wasn’t going to put this book on the beginner’s list because it is more intermediate. However, it’s nice to know what else there is to learn. I put this at #4 for a reason. I wouldn’t recommend a beginner start with this book. This would be an okay second or third book.

  5. The Secret Language of Astrology: The Illustrated Key to Unlocking the Secrets of the Stars by Roy Gillett This book covers everything a beginner needs to know. It also happens to be nicely illustrated. It covers each sign, the planets, the houses, aspects and how to put it all together.

Working With The Moon

My free “How to Work With the Moon” eBook is going out to email subscribers on January 17. Why work with the Moon? Each Moon has a different energy. The moon stays in each sign for about two to three days each month.

Fire signs are trailblazers, assertive, and confident. What is something you would want to do during a Fire Moon? Launch a new product.

Earth Signs are grounded, loyal, and responsible. Have a repetitive task, you’ve been avoiding? Do it during an Earth Moon.

Air signs are talkative, smart and objective. An Air Moon is a great time to generate new ideas. Brainstorm!

Water signs are intuitive, emotional and intense. Take a long bath and just stay home if you can during a Water Moon.

A New Moon is a time to set intentions.

A Full Moon is a good time to reflect and accept what is.

Astrological Signs and Careers

Here is an excerpt from my astrological signs and careers PDF. Coming out in mid-December to people on my mailing list.

Most people know their Sun Sign AKA horoscope sign because all the person needs to know is their birthdate. However, to gain more profound knowledge of yourself, I feel it is helpful to know your Moon and Ascendant (Rising Sign). To identify the latter two signs, you need to know not only where you were born, but also your time of birth.

For example, My Sun Sign is Taurus, but I find that I often relate more to my Ascendant which is Pisces. So I encourage you to read about your Sun Sign, Moon Sign and your Ascendant.
