Astro-Notes: A New House Minority Leader

by Jude Cowell

Promotion is in the air in Washington DC, for today, House Democrats elected Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) to the position of House Minority Leader beginning in early January 2023, and replacing Nancy Pelosi. Both a 9:00 am est and 12:00 pm Horoscope of the 118th Congress have been published previously if you'd care for a look.

Meanwhile, the following is a brief overview concerning the natal planets of Hakeem Jeffries born August 4, 1970 in Brooklyn, NY (grew up in Crown Heights, a part of Poughkeepsie NY); no birth hour is available so noon is used; his Wikipedia page provides more biographical details.

First here's an unmarked (by my messy study notes) noon horoscope with aspect grid:

And below is the messy version of the very same noon horoscope where we find Rep. Jeffries' Saturn in Taurus leading a BOWL shape of planets and denoting one who advocates for a cause or leads a mission with Neptune Rx in Scorpio in wide opposition (6A20) to Saturn. This suggests becoming responsible in public matters such as social work, yet with a possible hint of secret activities (if nothing else, political work fills that bill all by itself).

In addition, finances are involved (Taurus-Scorpio axis) which must in part refer to the constant task of soliciting donors as congressional politicians must continually do; (other activities in the sphere of finance are unknown to me at this point, but perhaps we'll discover more as his tenure goes on - and we should also note that he's a corporate lawyer, or was one).

Then as you see, his energetic Sun-Mars Conjunction reveals him to be a fighter with Leo the sign of the natural leader. This solar conjunction works well with his authoritative Saturn (planet of law, government, and business) leading all his planets in conservative, stable Taurus, a money sign of growth, investment, and preservation, and his Leo-Virgo combination of conscious-unconscious energies reveals an intellectual, analytical, and dedicated blend devoted to duty, and demanding, exacting Saturn in Fixed Taurus approves!

If necessary, feel free to enlarge and/or print the charts for clearer viewing.

One interesting natal chart factor that the lack of an accurate birth time doesn't affect - and is a cosmic link to soon-occurring events - is that Minority Leader Jeffries was born into an 8 North Solar Eclipse Series (March 7, 1970 @16Pis44) with any eclipse in Pisces identifying individuals gifted with the highest level of spiritual awareness, and also a potential for esoteric interests. However, Pisces also links the new House Minority Leader to issues of secrecy and to karmic relationships. For information on this, I'd look at his intense Venus-Pluto Conjunction in Virgo!

Yet the point is, 8 North repeats on April 8, 2024 @19Aries (conjunct Chiron) as yet another Great American Eclipse (#3 of 3) with themes of 'inventiveness, visions, and flashes of genius' (B. Brady). Well, as you know, eclipses are always karmic in nature so we might wonder if fated conditions will be involved for Hakeem Jeffries in 2024 such as participation in a presidential race. Certainly, 2024 will, at the least, be a significant year for the visionary Mr. Jeffries. Yet it seems notable to me that the rounded-up degree of his natal Chiron is "11 Aries" = "The President of the Country," and his recent Chiron Return was a three-fer with the third return occurring on or about February 21, 2022.

And so if I were you, dear reader, I'd stay tuned to SO'W for more musings on such possibilities!
