A Look at Brett Kavanaugh's Natal Astrology Chart

Seeing how Brett Kavanaugh has been so much in the news lately, I thought it would be interesting to do a google search for Brett Kavanaugh's natal astrology chart online. This search led me to the following page:

https://www.astrotheme.com/astrology/Brett_Kavanaugh

According to the article and the natal data given, Brett Kavanaugh's birth time is unknown. Nevertheless, from the zodiacal positions and placements of the planets on the day of his birth, and from news about Brett Kavanaugh from the hearings, certain things suggested themselves quite strongly to me as to where his Ascendant might be. Judging from the way he held onto his 1982 calendar, and marked everything on it, it seems to me that he probably has a super organized, detail oriented Virgo Ascendant.

Brett has three planets in Virgo, all retrograde: Uranus, Pluto and Mars. Being born in 1965, or the counterculture explosion of the mid 60s, which was marked by the big Uranus / Pluto conjunction, Brett has these two planets conjunct in Virgo within two degrees of exact. I would venture that of these three planets, Brett probably has Mars retrograde nearest to his Ascendant. His Mars is at 26 degrees of Virgo, and I would put his Ascendant at 27 or 28 degrees of Virgo, putting his retrograde Mars on the twelfth house side of his Ascendant. Brett's Mars, with its rage, aggressiveness and anger, seemed to be front and center in the hearings, and generally what is on one's Ascendant is very prominently on display. Donald Trump also has Mars, the planet of libido, conjunct his own Ascendant, and this would make both men highly sexed. But with Mars retrograde (Trump's Mars is direct) Brett could have deep insecurities about his masculinity and a constant need to prove himself. With Mars on the twelfth house side, with the twelfth house dealing with hidden or repressed factors, this can be a real problem area for him.

Uranus retrograde and Pluto retrograde would also be in Brett's twelfth house, right behind Mars and deeper into the twelfth house. The combination of these two particular retrograde planets would denote a lot of repressed demons and a need for power, manipulation and control (Pluto) combined with the volatility of Uranus; with Uranus retrograde in the twelfth, there may be deep seated fears of being different, of being a misfit - thus exacerbating his need to prove himself with the in crowd. Pluto in the twelfth house is also connected with a persecution complex, like he felt like he was receiving the mark of fate. As I said previously, the Uranus / Pluto conjunction of the mid sixties was closely associated with the explosion of the hippie counterculture - and with this conjunction in his twelfth house of hidden or repressed factors, there is the possibility that Brett might actually be a closet liberal, or much more so than he lets on - or that his explosive, radical nature, as embodied in these two planets, has been carefully channeled or sublimated into his dedication to conservative politics to remake the country.

What does astrology have to say about Brett's drinking problem? Plenty! It jumps right out at you with the tight Jupiter / Neptune opposition aligning along the Taurus / Scorpio axis. People who have hard aspects, like a square or an opposition, between these two planets often have problems with drug, alcohol and substance abuse, in whatever house these planets should fall. Brett's Jupiter / Neptune opposition is quite strong, only three degrees away from exact on the day of his birth. And with these two planets aligning along the receptive Fixed signs of Taurus / Scorpio, there can also be a lot of deep seated subconscious issues bringing to bear on his drinking problem as well.

But what about his problems with women? Here again, Brett's planets have a lot to say. Most specifically, his Venus in Aquarius is tightly conjunct his Black Moon Lillith - only two degrees away from exact. In a man's chart, Venus tends to be associated with women found to be sexually "hot" or attractive, and with Brett's Venus in Aquarius, this type of woman would be the brainy intellectual or the libertine free spirit - real or perceived. Black Moon Lillith, especially in a man's chart, represents the dark side of the feminine, and can be that aspect of the feminine that the man most fears or resents. So, suffice it to say that, with this Venus / Lillith conjunction, Brett has a lot of deep seated issues with women. If Brett's Ascendant is in Virgo, then his Venus in Aquarius would probably be in his sixth house, which is a real problem placement for Venus, the house of its fall; chief issues here would be a deep lack of self esteem and feelings of personal unworthiness in love.

While Venus in a man's chart represents the woman who turns him on for a romantic fling, the Moon in a man's chart represents the woman he is most likely to marry. And Brett has his Moon in Cancer, which indicates that his marrying type is a very traditional, domestically oriented family loving supermom. The Moon is in her domicile sign in Cancer, and so, Brett has very strong and deep seated feelings, and really, a very sensitive, emotional nature deep down. But if Brett's Ascendant is in Virgo, as I believe it most probably is, then there is a good chance that his Moon might be in the tenth house, which is the house of the Moon's detriment or exile. The tenth house is the house of career, and corresponds naturally with Capricorn, the sign opposing Cancer, the Moon's domicile - and so the Moon is in exile in the tenth house. The situation with this placement of the Moon would be having a lot of deep, tender feelings inside, but having to sweep them all under the rug so he can push ahead with his career and climb to the top. Since the Moon also represents one's family tradition and the expectations of one's family for the individual, chances are that Brett's family and upbringing placed a high premium on career success - even at any cost.

So- there you have it. I am not absolutely positive about the Virgo Ascendant conjunct Mars, but it just so worked out in Brett's case that a lot of other things seem to fit if one works on the chart from this vantage point. This is not exactly standard technique for rectifying the birth time and Ascendant in astrology, but in Brett's case, a lot of things seem to fit and fall into place with this.

3. I Didn't Feel Confident Enough to Predict That

Because I didn't have a birth time for him, and therefore could not be absolutely sure of his Ascendant, as well as the consequent house placements of his other planets. But my speculations as to what his Ascendant may be seem to make a lot of things about him fall into place. Do you want me to predict, as I see it, what his chances are of getting the job, assuming that his Ascendant is where I think it is?

5. You're Welcome!

I was at a gathering of fellow astrologers on Wednesday night, and we were studying the natal chart of Kavanaugh's main accuser, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, in light of the asteroid goddesses, and the Goddess in general. Needless to say, there was a huge amount of respect and adulation for Dr. Ford in the audience. I asked the visiting astrologer from Santa Fe if he thought that Kavanaugh would get confirmed, and he said that he didn't think so. He also said that he believed that Dr. Ford would go on to be a much more important figure in US history, and that Kavanaugh would go on to relative insignificance, and become nothing more than a footnote in history. The host and leader of our NCGR (National Council for Geocosmic Research, the country's largest educational and training organization for astrologers) reminded the presenter, and the audience not to get too political. In our NCGR chapter, almost all of the members are quite liberal and progressive politically - except for one person, and maybe one or two more, who are Trump supporters.

The whole astrological community is, by and large, very liberal and progressive. The "patron planet" of astrology, if you will, is Uranus, whose domicile or rulership sign is Aquarius (think of the 'Age of Aquarius' song from the hippie love rock musical 'Hair', and you will get the basic idea - openness and trust abounding, and generally liberal and progressive). Brett Kavanaugh also has Uranus prominent in his chart, as I said in my first posting, as well as its domicile sign, Aquarius - home to his Sun, Mercury and Venus. So, why isn't he liberal or progressive? Aquarius is the sign of principles and convictions, and although these principles and convictions are usually of a free and liberal bent, sometimes they can go the other way, and swing towards conservatism - but the main thing is that principles and convictions take precedence. Reagan, after all, was an Aquarius.

Anyway, when it came to predicting the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, given the astrological community's huge liberal / progressive bias as a whole, I found it very interesting that all the articles in the Mountain Astrologer, the nation's leading astrology magazine, were giving predictions of the upcoming 2016 presidential election using very arcane and obscure predictive techniques, from medieval or even more offbeat forms of astrology - and they all predicted a Hillary win, of course. This got me curious to know what regular, garden variety modern astrology and its standard predictive techniques had to say about the 2016 election. And so, I ordered from my personal astrologer one of her triwheel predictive charts, the US Sibley chart cast for the date of the 2016 election, and it took me all of one minute looking at the chart to say, "OMG - looks like a totalitarian takeover and a big deception of the electorate" - and that, of course, predicted a Trump win that November. I have put up a previous posting about that for this group, which you can refer to.

The point is that most astrologers - and we here at DU would add truth itself to that equation - have a liberal bias. Being acutely aware of this bias, of course, the Mountain Astrologer only wanted to publish articles before the 2016 election that predicted a Hillary win. Astrologers are, after all, only human beings, with their all too human biases. And the members of the US Senate, especially the conservative Republican majority, are also human beings with their own human biases - even those which may land them ultimately on the wrong side of history. We shall see what happens with Brett Kavanaugh's nomination!

6. And, indeed,

so we have (in regard to the supreme court justice).

Did you have a chance to talk to any of these folks in your gathering after you looked at the totalitarian takeover?
