I know I have done a riff on her chart before but several people asked me to review Michelle Obama's chart for her fiftieth birthday.
While she is a “late” Capricorn Sun person, you know how boring I find Sun energy astrology so let’s look at her rising sign. Ah! Another it is another earth sign! Mrs. Obama’s rising sign (also called ascendant) is in Taurus. Symbolized by the Bull, Taurus is steady, stubborn with a kiss elegance of Venus. Because Venus rules her ascendant, it is the ruling planet of her chart.
Venus appears up in her 11th house – the house of social and group activities – and is zero degrees Pisces and right on her Pisces Moon. Now, I wonder what artistic ability the first lady might be hiding from us. Venus in Pisces is a classic sign of someone with some kind of musical, artistic, etc. talent. Perhaps hers expresses in her fashion sense and her elegance but who knows – we might be seeing some other kind of artistry coming from her someday. (She has two retrogrades in her 5th house – the house of creativity so it may take a while but it is there!)
Venus on the Moon in the deeply caring sign of Pisces expresses when we see her hugging people and meaning it. She does not give political hugs or handshakes! Her concern and her love of people comes innately. I look for her to continue to work with groups of people long after she is out of the White House.
