Teddy Roosevelt (Oct 27, 1858) and kin showcased on PBS


Though it's never been convenient to post on my blogs concerning the natal chart and life of President Theodore Roosevelt, it isn't for lack of interest by yours truly. So now that Ken Burns has turned his expert lens upon Teddy, Franklin, and Eleanor, I am glad to find a posting of Teddy's natal horoscope with details at the excellent Neptune Cafe (scroll down a ways to view the horoscope.)

Check out the article to read of Teddy's "bellicose" nature with his Sun-Pluto opposition and larger-than-life personality as shown by expansive, adventurous, exploring Jupiter Rx rising in Gemini along with plenty of mystical and secretive Piscean influences suitable for a master Freemason such as Theodore.

Why even his Cancer Moon has a certain psychic quality to it and with an occult-leaning Scorpio Sun, we find a courageous man with a Water-Water personality blend that denotes a natural leader--a hard working, passionate public crusader who can be brooding, darkly intense, dryly witty, ruthless, and self-righteous.

The 'Images for Integration' for his Sun (conscious)--Moon (unconscious) blend are: "A general leads his troops to victory...A film director plans each shot to maximize its emotional impact." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)

Finally, illumination of Teddy's personality may also come from a quote by a writer who shares the Sun Sco-Moon Cancer blend in her natal chart, George Eliot (Mary Ann Evans):

"He was like a cock who thought the sun had risen to hear him crow."

Yes, I'd say that sums up rough-rider Teddy rather well.
