Astrology and Herman Cain’s Harassment Woes


Herman Cain has been beset by charges of sexual harassment for the past few weeks.  Does this show up in his horoscope?

Unfortunately, we don’t have a birth time for Mr. Cain, so I made due with a sunrise chart for his date and place of birth.  Using his symbolic sunrise chart, I also considered his solar return for this year.  When the birth time is unknown, I use the moment of sunrise for the date and location of birth as a symbol of a new birth.  Here is the combined figure:

Certain factors stand out.   The Solar Return Ascendant conjoins SR Saturn and falls in his natal 10th house of career, which typically means he will be called into account in the public arena where he will need to accept responsibility for past actions.

There is a Moon/Neptune opposition along his meridian axis of his natal chart, suggesting a proneness to scandal involving women in his public life.  This natal opposition is triggered by a square from a conjunction of three SR planets: Mars, Pluto, and Mercury.  Mars and Pluto are sexual planets and Mercury rules the press and publicity.  In October of 2011 transiting Pluto exactly squared his sunrise natal Moon, setting this configuration into action just at the time the reports of his sexual harassment settlements hit the press.

Saturn in the Solar Return occupies the sunrise chart’s natal 10th house, a position that is linked with publicly reaping the just desserts of one’s past behaviors.  Transiting Saturn squares natal Saturn on November 11, 2011, suggesting that November will be a very stressful month for Mr. Cain as far as his 10th house career goes.
