Here is some speculation on Carly Fiorina’s strengths and weaknesses based on her astrological birth chart. We’re discussing strengths and weaknesses as they relate to the US Presidential Election, not simply character traits. Strengths would help her during the Election, while weaknesses would work against her.
Carly Fiorina is a 2016 US Presidential Candidate who is seeking the Republican nomination.
This is an incomplete astrological assessment of her birth chart because we don’t have Carly Fiorina’s time of birth.
We know that Carly Fiorina was born on September 6, 1954.
Strengths in Carly Fiorina’s Birth Chart
The first thing that stands out from Carly Fiorina’s birth chart is the bowl chart pattern with Jupiter as the leading planet. She can be very dedicated to Jupiter ideals, such as growth, justice, self-improvement, education, love of foreign cultures, and tolerance. Jupiter is the planet of good luck, and it’s considered a very beneficial planet. This influence is very good when dealing with foreign policy issues.
Carly Fiorina’s Jupiter is exalted in Cancer, which means that it will pour forth its best qualities. This is definitely a strength for Carly. She will always seem to have a positive attitude, and a touch of good luck.
(If she was born before 5:10 pm that day, then she would have Moon in Sagittarius. This would mean her Moon is in mutual reception with her exalted Jupiter. This would further strengthen her Jupiter, but we’ll disregard this since we can’t be sure of her birth time.)
Carly Fiorina’s Jupiter is in sextile to her Mercury. She has Mercury in Virgo, which means she has a dignified Mercury since Mercury rules Virgo. Mercury is the planet of thinking and communication. Carly’s an extremely smart, logical, and practical thinker, and she can communicate well. In addition, the sextile from Jupiter enhances these qualities. This gives her communication style a balance of sounding smart and logical, as well as agreeable, tolerant, and positive.
Mercury also has a sextile from Uranus, which makes Carly Fiorina a forward thinker and innovator. Uranus adds a touch of genius and gives unexpected flashes in which great ideas come out of nowhere. She’ll be able to communicate ground-breaking ideas without a lot of drama. Since the aspect is a harmonious sextile, this influence will be beneficial rather than unsettling. This makes Carly Fiorina a real problem solver.
Carly Fiorina’s Mars is exalted in Capricorn. This is the best sign for Mars to be in. In Capricorn, Mars gives the “right” kind of energy while reining in all of the ugly qualities of Mars. This bodes very well for success. This influence is multiplied by the fact the Carly also has Mars in mutual reception with Saturn. This influence is then tripled by the fact that she also has Mars and Saturn in an almost exact sextile. It must be repeated, this bodes very well for success.
Carly’s Mars in in a beneficial trine aspect with her Sun. This quadruples the positive potential for success. She has the energy and stamina to accomplish her goals.
Carly’s Sun in in Virgo. Her Sun has no negative aspects, and this is a good thing. Her Sun in is trine to the North Node. This gives her leadership ability. She has a clear sense of what her life’s purpose should be. If she goes after something, it’s because she knows it’s part of her life’s purpose.
Carly’s Venus is dignified in Libra. This means that Venus will pour forth its best qualities. This is good since Venus symbolizes our attraction factor.
Carly’s Venus is in sextile aspect to Pluto. This gives Carly a magnetic and powerful ability to attract what she wants. She appears charming and charismatic to people.
Weaknesses and/or Neutral Things in Carly Fiorina’s Birth
Although Carly’s Mercury is dignified and in good aspect with Jupiter, it’s also square to Mars. This can add some fire to her communication style. She can be quick to voice her opinions, and refuse to admit when she’s wrong. These things are not actually weaknesses for someone like the President. These can be seen as skills for the presidency. Also, this influence is neutralized because Carly’s Mars is dignified in Capricorn and reigned in by Saturn. So, this is really a neutral influence rather than a weakness.
Carly has Venus conjunct Neptune in Libra. Venus is our attraction factor. Neptune conjunct her Venus affects her ability to attract what she wants. She’ll either attract things magically, like in a fairy tale, or else everything she wants will always be just out of reach. She may be firmly grasping something, and then the thing can slip away right through her fingers. Neptune can work either way, and there’s no way to tell if this will be a positive or negative influence. When Neptune is involved, we never know. Neptune is like the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland.
This is influence in Carly Fiorina’s chart can be somewhat neutralized by two factors. First, since Carly’s Venus is dignified in Libra, it will pour forth its best qualities. Secondly, Saturn is only 6 degrees away from the Venus/Neptune conjunction, although Saturn is out of sign. The presence of Saturn near Venus adds stability and a good business sense, among other things.
Other Factors Influencing Carly Fiorina’s Outcome in The Presidential Election
Carly’s progressed Moon is currently in Pisces, which can be about letting go of something. However, without Carly’s birth time, we don’t know exactly what degree her progressed Moon is at, nor when it will move into Aries. Either way, neither Pisces nor Aries have been popular signs among US Presidents of the past.
Carly’s natal North Node in Capricorn is currently undergoing a transit conjunction from Pluto. This transit will remain in effect (within 1 degree orb) until the end of November 2015. This transit, Pluto conjunct North Node, is usually about letting go of something. We’ll see how this plays out.
