Contenders: Phase Two – Stacey Abrams

I guess that is was inevitable that with well over twenty contenders for the Democratic nomination for president, we would at some point start a list of multiple contenders for vice president. Any of our presidential contenders will be on that list if they fail to get the stop spot but, just to make things interesting, we have a new person under consideration: Stacey Abrams.

Abrams, of course, captured liberal hearts when she ran for governor of Georgia. Affection for her in these circles only increased when she had the election essentially stolen from her by her opponent, who used his control over who got to vote and the allocating voting machines to gain an advantage. (A perfect example of what happens when you have power without principles.) Now Abrams has stated that she would be open to the second slot on the Democratic ticket.

We don’t have a time of birth for Abrams but even without it, the power of this horoscope is evident (Click on Stacey Abrams to see a chart done for noon on her date of birth.) Mars and Uranus are in an exact (to the minute) opposition. This aspect creates the potential for phenomenal originality and brilliance. It also describes erratic behavior and arrogance. Abrams seems to have those latter qualities under control, and she has certainly taking full advantage of the former.

One reason that Abrams has been able to pull off this trick is because her Mars to Uranus opposition forms a T-square to Venus. Venus is in Aquarius, the sign that Uranus rules. Aquarius is also a Fixed sign. In this chart, Venus seems to act like a calm and benevolent anchor to the wild energy of Mars and Uranus. If we had a time of birth I could, of course, say a lot more about this, but I would guess that Venus is strongly placed in her complete horoscope, possible in the First or Tenth Houses.

Like Donald Trump and some of our Democratic contenders, Abrams is a Full Moon baby. In her case, the Sun is in Sagittarius and the Moon is in Gemini. The combination of the Sun and Moon, particular with the opposition of Mars and Uranus, could indicate a lack of focus and a tendency to start things with great enthusiasm and then fail to follow through. Still, it describes an extremely energetic person.

With this chart even more than most, a lot depends on the time of birth and the placement of the Moon. An early morning birth would put the Moon in Grand Trine with Jupiter and Pluto, Depending on what house the Moon occupied in the chart, this could be very positive indicator. However, a birth time later in the day would strengthen the opposition between the Moon and the Sun. Such oppositions typically convey a lot of energy, but they also indicate a deep, inner conflicts. In Abrams case, it would be a conflict between inspired action and rational analysis.

The transits to this partial horoscope for Abrams are not particularly hopeful. Neptune is currently square her natal Sun, indicating that the idea of her snagging the vice president slot may be not realistic. Making a big deal out this idea is not currently in her best interest. I went ahead and looked at what was happening for Abrams in August 2020, when the Democratic convention would likely be occurring. At that time transiting Saturn will be square Abram’s natal Mars. Again, it’s hard to know without a complete chart, but this is more an aspect for disappointments than advancement.

Of course, as I always say with I’m dealing with a chart without a time of birth, what I can see is limited. No judgement made using a partial horoscope should be taken as definitive. However, from what I can see, the prospect of Stacey Abrams becoming the nation first black vice president are not great.
