Astrologers are the New Birthers!
Here’s Eric’s article on the Clinton birth data flap, and the Wall Street Journal article, from The Mountain Astrologer.
It’s been an interesting week to be an astrologer. It all started when The Wall Street Journal published an article on September 29, Who’s Demanding to See Hillary Clinton’s Birth Certificate? Baffled Astrologers
That would be us. Astrologers are the new birthers.
As if on cue, The Wall Street Journal did its once-per-11-year front-page article on astrology. The last time was their piece on how astrologers were responding to the demotion of Pluto and the naming of Eris (that was in August 2006).
While the rest of the political dialog swirled around Donald Trump’s $900 million write-off, his tax returns, and his comments about an allegedly zaftig Miss Universe, the astrology world was abuzz with a newly revived discussion about Clinton’s missing data, thanks in part to Dow Jones and Company.

If Your Birthday is Oct. 5
(The Day of the Just Cause) | Get Your Birthday Reading
A Moon-Neptune contact on your birthday reminds you not to be deceived, nor to deceive yourself. In order to do that, you must keep your mind planted firmly in the present, which is the only perspective from which you can resolve the past. Don’t be afraid of dark emotions, because they clear the way to the creativity and healing that you seek.
Written in the Planets
The Sun is approaching a square aspect to Pluto. It’s exact Friday, though it will gradually build to a peak until then. Pluto focuses the Sun, and a square represents an inner impulse or drive. This is about independent self-expression. Independent means not dependent on the permission of others. You are the one who must give yourself consent to be who you are, and to express your soul’s intentions. This is your journey.
