Let’s look into Chris Christie’s chart since he is getting so much attention lately. Born on September 6, 1962 he is a Virgo who doesn’t exactly come across as one. He is loud, arrogant, ambitious and known as a bully, rather than gracious, gentle or soft spoken, at least not at first glance. We don’t have a birth time for him so we don’t know his ascendant.
Chris Christie’s Sun is conjunct Pluto in Virgo and opposite Jupiter in Pisces. Uranus is not in conjunction with the Sun but nearby in Virgo. These aspects certainly color his personality differently. He has the Moon in Sagittarius in a T-square with Jupiter, the Sun, Uranus and Pluto. (Chart information provided by Pinterest.com.) He has a Grand Water Trine involving Mars, Venus, Neptune and Jupiter which gives him good luck, protection and many supporters.
He appears to be ruled by Jupiter. He is charming, egotistical and obviously enjoys the spotlight. People with a strong Jupiter influence love to show off and push people around. They can be full of themselves. They are extremely generous when it suits their purpose. They also enjoy food and drink and gain a lot of weight. Remember Jupiter expands. Enough said.
It should be noted that Christie does have strong leadership qualities or he wouldn’t have gotten this far. He might actually make a good President. He has Saturn trine Mercury. He is intelligent and shrewd. He chooses his aides carefully although the ones I’ve heard about lately are as arrogant as he is. They are merely following his example. Birds of a feather flock together.
Most people don‘t look or act like their sign. Some Virgo traits to look for are good manners, hospitality and an interest in health and diet. One Virgo man I know is outspoken, gregarious and proud. He reminds me more of a Leo or a Sag. It’s because he has Jupiter rising in Scorpio and some stuff in Leo. But he is a gentleman, a gracious host and enjoys serving people. He’s a really nice person and Virgos are usually nice when you get to know them. He is a hard worker. He likes to cook. He acts more like a Virgo than first appearances suggest.
I know two men in Bergen County about the same age as Christie who also have the Sun conjunct Pluto in Virgo. They are not in politics. One is a photographer and the other is a construction foreman by day and a musician by night. Both are very talented in their creative fields. What do they have in common? They have huge egos and a strong belief that they can get away with anything. And both have long-standing drug addictions. They have struggled with the law and rehab. They both have a secret life especially the musician in particular. These situations often develop when Pluto is strong in the chart. I do hope Christie doesn’t have any substance abuse problems or other skeletons in his closet. They could be his un-doing.
Generally speaking I can’t nail down any specific transits that spell trouble or downfall for him. I don’t know his ascendant. Jupiter is squaring his Mercury and that means communications problems. The GWB scandal may not be that important and will go away in plenty of time before the 2016 campaign heats up. Next year however Saturn will contact his Moon over several months, activating his T-square and that may bring problems with his health, family or popularity with the masses. Delays or obstacles are indicated. Stay tuned.
