Bernie Sanders

Many liberals are smart enough to see that Hillary Clinton is bad news, but haven't done quite enough homework into comparative socio-political systems to see that Socialism leads to disaster.  The members of this faction, to which I belonged only a decade ago, are currently salivating over the presidential candidacy of openly-Socialist Bernie Sanders.

time unknown

LibertarianPallas sextile Mercury, ruled by Jupiter (square the Nodes and Sun).
AuthoritarianPallas trine Pluto which is semisquare Pallas ruler Jupiter.
This is strong on authoritarianism (you'd have to be, to be Socialist) but the Nodal square to Pallas' ruler is a wildcard which can strongly mitigate the Pluto effect.  This is a "whistleblower" pattern a la Edward Snowden, and there's a chance that Sanders actually has a conscience.

Collectivist/LeftistVenus tightly quincunx South Node.
Capitalist: nothing visible here.
No surprise here.

ConservativeNorth Node quincunx Moon ruler Mars, and possibly Moon.
LiberalNeptune quincunx Moon ruler Mars, and possibly Moon. 
Strongly mixed signatures tend to veer to the liberal side of things, and may be an "environmentalist" signature. 

Mixed Pallas + Strongly Collectivist + Culturally Liberal --> "Principled" Socialist
The chart reflects the man. 

There probably isn't a Bloodbath Formula here, which in my book helps put him ahead of everyone but Rand Paul in the race for the throne.  Sanders as President might get suckered into enabling the military-industrial complex, but I suspect he's not an active supporter. 

Sanders' political Achilles' Heel might be the fact that he has, like an idiot, publicly written about rape fantasies.  If Sanders gains any true traction, this is probably what Hillary and the Establishment will use to grind him into a fine red paste.  As for the psychology that drives such politically-inconvenient impulses, I would say it's the clear Rapist Formula on his chart:

1.  Pallas trine Pluto which is semisquare Pallas ruler Jupiter.
2.  Venus tightly quincunx South Node.
3.  Mars rules and conjoins Moon.
4.  Sun square Jupiter; Jupiter sextile Mars; Mars parallel Sun
5.  Jupiter square Neptune and the Nodes.

We usually get killers in the White House.  "Rape Fantasy Guy" would probably be an improvement.

North Node conjunct/parallel Neptune, both conjunct Sun, all in Virgo:  a man whose destiny is to represent a dream of how things should work.

Mercury trine Saturn/Uranus conjunction:  giving voice to rebellion.

You know things are fucked when an openly-Socialist, semi-closeted misogynist is one the better candidates in the presidential race.  But, as our Islamic brethren say, "the enemy of my enemy is my friend".  Give 'em hell, Bernie. 

Addendum November 2015Sanders is a hypocritical, pro-war piece of shitI was wrong


  1. Hi,

    Quick question regarding parallels/contra-parallels, how do you interpret these aspects? I have Mars in Virgo contra-parallel Pluto in Scorpio, is this similar to Mars opposite Pluto?

  2. 1. Parallels are like conjunctions; contraparallels are like oppositions.
    2. So, yes.

  3. "There's a good chance Sanders might have a conscience" -- you just won the internet for a ridiculously stupid remark. Sanders, if anything, is the most principled politician in the country. Do you suppose most of the Republicans have a conscience not bought off by corporations?

  4. "There is a good chance Sanders actually has a conscience" -- this you say about one of the most principled politicians in the country. Do you really think most of the Republican candidates have a conscience not bought and paid for by one of your beloved corporations? And by the way, the rape remark was satire done 30 years ago -- is that the very best you can dig up about this man?

    1. As I said, Sanders is one the better candidates in the presidential race. Despite being a Socialist misogynist.

    2. Here's a video of an interview with Cindy Sheehan (a Socialist) eviscerating Sanders for warmongering, authoritarianism, and corporatism.
