President Bill Clinton Astrology Chart Analysis
William Jefferson "Bill" Clinton (born at 8:51 AM, in Hope AR on August 19, 1946) was the 42nd President of the United States, serving from 1993 to 2001. President Clinton is a Virgo ascendant with ascendant degree at 12 degrees and 29 minutes.
The ruler of first house and 10th of career is Mercury, well placed in Cancer sign very close to the 11th house cusp. Mercury is strongly placed in the constellation of Saturn, the lord of 5th house of love affairs, creative work, and 6th house of health issues, legal work, and Saturn is strongly placed in 10th house of career. This makes Mercury the Ascendant lord and the 10th house lord of career very strong and indicates a high level of success in life. This is evident from the fact that Clinton became President during Mercury Sub Period in Jupiter Main Period that was operating from Jan 1992 to April 1994 in his life. President Clinton was inaugurated for a second term on Jan 20th, 1997 during Venus sub period in Jupiter main period. Venus the lord of 2nd house and 9th house is in the constellation of 11th lord moon. Transit Jupiter from Capricorn was aspecting natal Venus, and Mars in his ascendant Virgo and the natal position of the ascendant lord and 10th house lord of career Mercury, in Cancer sign at same time, a very auspicious time.
President Clinton's problems started when Sun sub period in Jupiter main period was operating from November 1997 to Sept 1998. Sun is the lord of 12th house of loss and it is in the constellation of Ketu in 3rd house, and Ketu represents Mars as it is in Mars sign Scorpio, which is lord of 3rd change of residence and 8th house of punishment and fine. Whenever the significators of 3rd, 8th and 12th house operate together through Dashas and Bhuktis is considered an evil time, and the native goes through some sort of punishment in life. On 8/17/1998 Clinton testified to the grand jury that he had "misled" his family and the nation when he had emphatically claimed several months prior that he had never had a sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky from mid-1996 to January 1998 On 9/09/98, the Starr report reached Congress, recommending impeachment for lying under oath, obstruction of justice and witness tampering.
President Clinton's problems continued as he entered Moon sub period in Jupiter Main period because Moon is in 8th house and it is in the constellation of 12th house lord Sun which again represents loss. Also transit Saturn entered Aries sign and it aspected the Mahadasha lord natal Jupiter in Libra and Saturn also transited natal Moon in Aries. Saturn influenced both mahadasha lord Jupiter and Bhukti lord Moon in a negative way. On 12/19/1998 at 1:25 PM EST Washington, DC, the motion was passed to adopt impeachment proceedings. The president was acquitted on 2/12/1999 as the Senate did not reach the two-thirds majority vote in spite of ferocious partisan passions.
President Clinton entered Rahu sub period in Jupiter main period from December 2000 to may 2003. Rahu is in 3rd house (change in residence) and 8th house lord (fine, punishment) Mars' constellation. Rahu is in 9th house (change of career) and in 9th lord Venus's sign. On 10/01/2001 the Supreme Court suspended former President Clinton from practicing law before the high court and gave him 40 days to say why he should not be permanently disbarred. The court acted after it was notified by the Arkansas Supreme Court that Clinton's Arkansas law license was suspended for five years.
President Clinton entered Saturn main period on May 2003. Saturn is the lord of 6th house of health issues and is in the 10th house of career in its own constellation. Saturn is a very strong significator of health problems. Transit Saturn, the Mahadasha lord has entered Clinton's ascendant sign Virgo in September 2009, and Saturn's going to stay here until November 2011. This is a very difficult transit for any native. Saturn will transit natal Venus and natal Mars in Virgo. Clinton is in Saturn/Ketu/mercury period from December 2009 to end of February 2010, when he had heart problem again. Transit Mercury the lord of ascendant was in conjunction with ketu from January 28th to Feb 8th, 2010 when he visited the hospital again. October, November, December 2012 will be very sensitive months for Clinton when transit Saturn from Libra will aspect the natal position of ascendant lord Mercury and natal Saturn at same time. Then 2013 will also be sensitive period when Saturn will go retrograde and then move forward again in Libra and aspects the natal Mercury and natal Saturn in Clinton's astrology chart.
