A Few Astro-Notes Concerning the Obsessive Mr. Gohmert

by Jude Cowell

If you're curious about the career path of Rep. Louie Buller Gohmert Jr (R-TX) and a few bio details, you may wish to check out his Wikipedia page where you'll see that Baby Louie was born on August 18, 1953 in Pittsburg, Texas but was "raised" in Mount Pleasant, Texas.

Assuming office in the House of Representatives on January 3, 2005, the former JAG attorney seldom ceases to amaze and not often in a good way. A current example is his frivolous lawsuit against VP Pence in an attempt to overturn the 2020 Election on behalf of Donald Trump on January 6, 2021. Glenn Kirschner has the absurd details and his usual measured commentary. Now Mr. Gohmert's lawsuit asserts that gavel-holder Mike Pence should simply 'declare' Trump president on January 6th instead of certifying Joe Biden as victor of the 2020 presidential election. However, VP Pence's position in Congress does not grant him such liberties. Ordinarily. The outcome of their farce remains to be seen and you may want to pop an extra bowl of popcorn on January 6th. (Note: The horoscope is set for 10:00 am est which may be too early for the proceedings but as you can see, the Sun @16Capricorn opposes Gohmert's natal Venus @16Cancer so that relationships, alliances, and legal matters proceed unfavorably for him; however, the Sun conjunct his natal Chiron Rx @16Cap02 so he may feel that he's on the right course to fulfill his life's quest! And his natal Venus-Chiron opposition suggests that a mentor is involved or that he is someone's mentor--R. Nolle.)

So perhaps a very brief look at a few of the quirky Mr. Gohmert's natal planets would be of interest to one or two readers:

On August 18, 1953 the Sun was in the proud, vain, dramatic, 'natural leader' sign of Leo for the 24 hours (24--26) while the fluctuating Moon floated from 29Scor44 (12:00 am CST) to 12Sag28 (11:59 pm CST). So chances are good that Gohmert's natal Moon is in Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius with its 'idealistic thoughts guide action' quality (Ebertin) and this would make him a volatile double Fire personality, so certain of the rightness of his beliefs, rather than a steamy Fire-Water combo that can sterilize or scald.

Louie Gohmert's Solar Eclipse in Leo: For karmic Progress Avoid Egocentricity

His Prenatal Solar Eclipse in the 9 New South Saros Series manifested on August 9, 1953 @17Leo, is also his Syzygy Moon, and contains themes of 'bringing to the surface longterm worries about health or loved ones, or about issues that concern paperwork and/or communications; responsibilities with paperwork could come home to roost, and any news has a sense of fate or destiny attached' (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology #ad). Note that the last 9 New South Eclipse occurred on September 11, 2007 @18Virgo, the next will occur on September 21, 2025 @29Virgo, a critical 29th degree.

Now in his natal chart and psyche Rep. Gohmert 'enjoys' a few planetary pairs - conjunctions, that is - with the concentrated energies and potentials they suggest: Saturn-Neptune in Libra (21-23) indicates that he's a performer (as lawyers and politicians tend to be); Mercury-Mars in Leo (7-13) denotes strong political opinions with Leonine ego involvement; Venus-Uranus in Cancer (16-21) describes a strong insistence on retaining his freedom and independence, especially within relationships and alliances.

Last but not least by any means is Gohmert's power-craving Sun-Pluto conjunction in royal Leo (23-26) which provides him with intense, obsessive qualities that yours truly would call zealotry.

What would you call it, dear reader?

I agree that Gohmert's moon is probably in Sagittarius, because I think a Scorpio moon would have more of, how shall I put it, a brain-to-mouth filter. Someone else we can name (hint: orange) has no fingers-to-Twitter filter, and moon in Sagittarius. (I am a sun sign Sag. I am ALLOWED to say things about my sign, lol)

While I don't see Gohmert as being ambitious or anything but a backbencher...that Sun + Pluto makes me wonder if he's really dumb as he comes across, or just dumb like a fox? Like he somehow enjoys playing the "court jester" type role. What I *have* heard that surprises me is that he's a really good cook - he got some kind of "Best Cook In Congress" mention from Congressional staff. That's got to be the Venus in Cancer. Most of the people I've known with Moon or Venus in that sign LOVE to cook and are good at it.

Sounds plausible Crystal D thank you. A good cook can also be shown by a 4th house Jupiter, a possible clue to his birth time and Ascendant! Jude

The thing I worry about is all this stuff is going to make the race to who gets the Whitehouse in2024 even crazier,and more stressful,Jude I wonder if you can research when the Christian coalition was created in the late 1970 's,and why this group wanted future politicians ,or aka as actor's to create such chaotic stuff for America that has created polarities in how we are governed,if were as old as the UK system of government,and society are maybe we could see a pattern,but since pluto is returning to his home position in seasonal capricorn in our country's foundation chart,we haven't had the luxury great Britain has had in going through multiple phases in seasonal capricorn,so we haven't become accustomed to Pluto's vibes like countries like great Britain,and other's have,it like when Kids reach puberty the first time,it's a adrenalin rush,as well as shock,I'm not saying we won't adjust to more uplifting future,but compared to the rest of the world the USA is still like a teenager in nation time,and how can some of us keep electing guys,or girls to government that act like we've got all the time to just keep rebuilding society after all these shocks,even with indepth astrology as a helpful guide,it seems like this experiment in our society might dissolve at some point then what are we to do for us,and future generations of humans,why can't we all come together whatever our beliefs,and try rebuild us as humans,and this planet,sorry about this depressed rant,but it just seems dark fate has overtaken humanity,instead of positive free will,and I wish positive free will,as well as more moderation would guide us out this dark age we're in,so more positive collaboration could be created,and maybe indepth knowledge system like astrology,science even religion on its positive side could tri guidance knowledge system that all humanity can use to the best of our abilities,instead these 3 indepth knowledge systems astrology,science,and religion play king of the hill while humanity suffers,since isn't there a saying 2heads,or more are better than one,hopefully you are having the best New years eve,and day tonight,and tomorrow the best you can.

Hi Ant, many of your thoughts are shared here and of course it is a darkened time for the US and the world. Yet Pluto's regenerative function can be focused upon which hopefully came through in my post. Major generational cycles are always operating in the background of civilization and most Americans like to forget that we are subject to them too.

One thing that irks me are the social tinkerers who arrogantly assume that they deserve to choose how political, social, and financial events must go, no matter what it costs other people. They profit from wars so they start them and exploit 'the little guy and gal' ad nauseum. We know they're evil from their actions and because the love of money is the root of All evil. The love of it, not money itself.

I accept that it's time for a new order and the transition period is always chaotic and unstable so emphasizing Pluto's regenerative function is best. My personal faith lightens the coming portents for me and my hope for you is to find strength for the coming New Year in a way that no one can take from you.

Warm Regards and Thank You for sharing your concerns,
