A couple years ago politician Anthony Weiner had to resign from public office because of a scandal involving his sending very personal photos to admiring fans on Twitter. This spring rumors abound that he will announce as a candidate for mayor of NYC. The NY Post sarcastically headlined the story:
What has changed in his chart?
Unfortunately, we don’t have a known birth time for Mr. Weiner. In such cases, I use a sunrise chart for the day and location of birth and have found the sunrise forecast to be reasonably accurate. Let’s begin by looking at his secondary progressions and solar arc directions to his sunrise chart for the first half of 2013:
Judging from his secondary progressions and solar arc aspects, except for the semi-squares of Mercury to Uranus on March 16th and Mars to natal Venus on June 14th, everything looks favorable. The Moon represents the voting public and it sextiles his natal Mars, conjoins his natal Jupiter and then sextiles his natal Venus during this period. Solar arc Jupiter sextile natal Pluto at the end of June 2013 is a powerful favorable aspect, which suggests that his campaign for mayor of NYC will be well under way by the time this aspect becomes exact on 29 June 2013.
Based on the sunrise chart, the best time for him to announce for mayor would be between May 18 (sp Moon conjunct Jupiter) and May 24 (sp Moon sextile Venus). These are two highly favorable aspects for any political aspirations. May 21st is in the middle of this favorable period, so I cast a chart with the transits and progressions for May 21st surrounding his natal sunrise chart:
In this combined chart we can see the progressed Moon in the 9th house of publicity favorably aspecting natal Jupiter and Venus. The transiting Sun is also passing through the 9th house. Transiting Mars is approaching natal and progressed Jupiter in the 9th. His progressed MC conjoins his natal Venus in the 11th house of hopes and wishes.
In the natal sunrise 10th house we find transiting Mercury, Venus and Jupiter — all favorable for a political comeback and popularity with the public. Transiting Saturn in Scorpio at the cusp of the 3rd house of news media suggests he will need to do damage control about his sex scandal with continues to drag him down (a Saturnine effect).
In the absence of a known birth time, I would advise Mr. Weiner to announce for mayor between May 18th and May 24th to take advantage of these positive aspects in his sunrise chart.
Addendum (Wednesday, 22 May 2013):
When I woke up this morning (Wed, 22 May), I heard on the news that Anthony Weiner announced his run for Mayor of NYC in an online video around midnight last night. With the events of the devastating tornado in Oklahoma earlier this week, I had completely forgotten about Weiner’s run for mayor. He appears to be acting in resonance with the natal sunrise chart. I was expecting an announcement around mid-day on 21 May. He announced 12 hours later than I expected.
