Catch up on the news with Thom Hartmann (his birth data and planets, below):
Thom Hartmann May 7, 1951 Grand Rapids, Michigan; no birth time known; planets at noon (Moon could be in late Taurus but since Gemini is the sign of communications, I'm going with a Gemini Moon):
Sun 16 Taurus; Moon 5 Gemini; Mercury 28 Aries; Venus 26 Gemini; Mars 20 Taurus; Jupiter 3 Aries; Saturn 25 Virgo; Uranus 6 Cancer; Neptune 17 Libra; Pluto 17 Leo.
Thom's Earth-Air Sun Taurus-Moon Gemini personality blend denotes a clear and practical intelligence though it can be on the dogmatic side. This 'mind vs body' combination suggests one who can be a stranger to himself (but his past career in psychotherapy hopefully took care of his inner confusion). Thom is a natural teacher and an impulsive talker (President Obama has an early Gemini Moon) but one who brings common sense to all endeavors as he attempts to talk others around to his point of view.
