8.19.06 UPDATE: 'Anonymous' has gotten back to me on Ned Lamont's birthday (thanks, Anonymous!) and funny thing...it's the same as my own, although I've got a couple of years on him! Will post on Lamont asap using Sunrise---hopefully this weekend. jc 1:27 am
UPDATE 8.8.06: "It's a deliberate attempt to disenfranchise the voters," says the Lieberman campaign manager.
SO'W says it's more along the lines of a Blatant Attempt...to think that Lamont campaigners would be so obvious in hacking and crashing the Lieberman website on the day of the primary...ah, give me a break, Joe!
Read the accusations here, if you haven't--it's quite a blatant hoot, I must say, that Lieberman Campaign Says Web Site Hacked...or is it just a sad and blatant attempt to save Joe's face?

Joseph Lieberman born Stamford, CT, Feb 24, 1942.
In answer to my question, it must be pointed out that his birth time is in dispute and ranks only a "DD" for Dirty Data in Rodden Ratings' AstroDataBank, so I'm giving here a few details which are not in dispute.
His natal Moon is in Gemini for the entire 24-hour period of Feb 24, 1942, so let's consider his poetic Sun/Moon natal blend:
*Sun Pisces/Moon Gemini:
Talkative; wordy; nervous; intellectual versatility; alternating sociability and shyness; love of language and symbolic logic; temperamental; thinks with heart and feels with head; acute perceptions; tends to find out true feelings while talking out loud; receptive to others; sympathetic; always tests the waters before jumping in but can't wait to have a good splash; fanciful; eccentric; keeps inward, running commentary on all experiences with people and with situations; the actor.
Greatest Strengths: intellectually imaginative; diplomatic with an appreciation of a wide variety of people; knows no strangers; fluent and original self-expression; forgiving nature; childlike attitude to life.
Greatest Weaknesses: tendency to vacillate and skim the surface; fickle and uncommitted in relationships; can be seduced by the sound of own voice (a politician!); full of hopes, wishes, schemes and plans if horse isn't changed midstream; cagey; defensive; wily; devious if necessary (again--a politician); lack of self-confidence; prone to wallow in daydreams, self-doubt, and self-pity; tendency to live according to an ever-changing morality (a politician.)
Images: A schoolboy dreams of heroic deeds during a class on the romantic poets...A child grips his magic red balloon as it lifts him into the sky and over the sea onto an island of eternal beauty (Gemini's puer eternus.)
All these mentions of "childlike" and "child" have been noticeable to me whenever Lieberman speaks...there is something childlike about him and I suppose a few childish temper tantrums may also be the case.
Natally he shares with George Bush an expansively optimistic Moon/Jupiter conjunction--some would say an overly optimistic pairing--given to them by their mothers (Moon) who think so very highly of their abilities...no matter what.
We know that Laura Bush shares this assessment of her husband--"I'm so proud of my husband"--and it wouldn't surprise me if Mrs. Lieberman constantly puffed up Joe's ego as well. I suspect Mom always told Joe he could be president, don't you? In fact, he may have related that sort of thing about their relationship on The Daily Show a while back, if memory serves. I know he has stated that she thinks very highly of him...and receptive Neptune in 10th house--if it is--can be a significator of Mommy Dear.
Bush and Lieberman have another strong contact between their natal charts--Joe's Pluto/Chiron conjunction (Plutocracy; oppression; class warfare; racism) is sitting royally upon Bush's natal Ascendant--his nibs himself. Makes me wonder who's really the boss!
At 29Vir08 Rx, Lieberman's natal Neptune (idealism; hopes and dreams; deceptions of self and others) is conjunct his Mc 27Vir15 in the 2:30 am EWT chart I'm using from the AstroDataBank file...good for an actor, and for self-sacrifice to career, but also giving an illusionary view of him in his career and public status for the rest of us. (Hence my question: who IS Joe Lieberman?)
The upcoming and difficult Solar Eclipse of Sep 22, 2006, 29Vir20, is in the
**8South Series--"loss; separations; to finish something and be sad at its completion, with a possible physical injury due to over-exertion" influence. When added to Neptune's tendency to bring loss (and even if this birth time is incorrect thereby removing natal Neptune from conjunction with n Mc), I believe this could be Senator Lieberman's Waterloo as far as his Senate campaign is concerned.
Note: my attempts to find Ned Lamont's birthdate have been stymied--all I'm finding is the year--1954--so if the one person reading this post has Lamont's birth data, I'd appreciate a Shout-Out on that!
