Robert Mueller

Post by Jim Eshelman » Fri Aug 04, 2017 5:50 pm

Former FBI head, and current special investigator on Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. elections, Robert Mueller was born August 7, 1944, hour unknown, in New York, NY. He became FBI director September 4, 2001, and was therefore on the job when the 9/11 attacks hit.

Despite no birth time, his chart is of enormous interest because of his current role as special investigator / special prosecutor. Other than J. Edgar Hoover, he is the longest serving FBI director thus far, and draws enormous respect from both sides of the political spectrum. He was appointed special counsel May 17, 2017.

He has a Libra Sun and probably a Pisces Moon (though it could be in late Aquarius if he was born very early in the day). If born mid-to-late day, Moon is not only in Pisces but also opposite Neptune. He has a 4° Mercury-Mars conjunction with Uranus partile square Mercury (4° from square Mars). Four planets (but no luminaries) are in Leo.

Transiting Neptune is now exactly opposite his Mercury and square his Uranus.

The 9/11 attacks, a week after he assumed his duties as FBI director, surely stands as one of the most significant events of his life. Major transits of the time were quite impactful on his chart, especially with Pluto partile opposite his Uranus and square his Mercury. Saturn, 2° away, was halfway between his Mercury-Uranus and his Mars.

I wouldn't be surprised if his Mercury-Uranus were angular at birth, though we have far too little information to jump to the conclusion that it is.

On 9/11, Uranus was a few minutes from sesqui-square his Saturn. He was a month past his SSR and a week past his SLR.

Ah, one week earlier was when he became FBI director (September 4).There might have been a Moon-Mars square. Sun exactly squared Pluto, which was already on his Mercury-Uranus (and squared Saturn just a little wider). Venus conjoined his Pluto. There was plenty of transit activity in this SLR and, should be get a birth time for him, some very significant alignments surely will be angular.

His progressed Moon for that week is not in range to be contacting anything at all unless he were born in the evening, in which case it would have opposed progressed Venus. This discourages the idea of an evening birth.

On the other hand, the SSR Moon is quite interesting. First, it surely conjoined his natal Moon, no matter what time he was born. this doubling up suggests they both received a common transit. His SQ Moon was about 2° later than his SSR (and, thus, natal) Moon. Another indication that he didn't have an evening birth is that SQ Moon just 4° farther along would square Jupiter, which is highly unlikely for 9/11 (though appropriate for his becoming FBI director if nothing else were involved).

A birth time of 3 PM (sticking to a round hour) gives a natal Moon of 6°50' Pisces and SSR Moon of 6°26' Pisces. Transiting Mars at the time of the 9/11 attacks was 6°41' Sagittarius.

This would give a 2001 SSR with Neptune setting opposite his natal Pluto. That's just weird enough that I'm not going to claim that I have certainty on what it would mean. It produces a lunar return for September 4 (the day he became Director, and a week before 9/11) with Uranus near IC and his Venus (and, to a lesser extent) Jupiter on MC - suitable for his high office, but not for 9/11. It also has natal Sun square Ascendant.

I'm not all that sold on either the SSR or SLR this produces, but the Mars transit to two different Moons for 9/11 was too good not to at least check it out. (Three Moons, actually, since SQ Moon remained in orb of the Mars transit.)

The most compelling aspects in his SLR for 9/11 include:

Moon-Mars square
Sun square Pluto (add Saturn) on his Mercury-Uranus (add Mars)
Venus conjunct his Pluto

(All times mentioned are approximations of a potential birth time, not the SLR time.)
The Moon-Mars square would be on the SLR angles for a noon birth; with a wider orb (and adding Saturn-Pluto across the horizon) for about 5 PM (Moon 7°59' Pisces), and for a time about 7:30 before noon (4:30 AM Moon a little later than 1° Pisces).

Sun-Pluto-Saturn (and natal Mercury-Uranus-Mars) would be angular for a 10:30 birth (Moon about 4.25 Pisces), or about 4:30 (which we saw above, but it has other things I don't like), or about 5 PM (also seem above: Moon 7°59' Pisces), or about 11:30 PM (or whenever Moon reached 10°29' Pisces).

Venus on his Pluto would be angular at weird times when nothing else looks right, so it probably was a background support aspect.


The next one to test is a birth for around 5:00 PM, specifically, 4:45 PM. It gives a Moon 7°54' Pisces, and the SLR for 9/11 that gives us everything we want in spades! (If I stick with this chart, please do this "designer SLR" for a treat.)

Furthermore, his SSR puts Mercury-Uranus across horizon, Sun precisely on EP (for taking the directorship), a < 4° Moon-Jupiter square (also for the directorship, widish and background). etc. For 9/11, Mars partile square SSR Moon, Uranus transit SSR MC. Progressed Moon of the natal, which I thought was doing nothing, is exactly sextile his Saturn.

Not bad...

This chart for 4:45 AM also puts transiting Jupiter on his natal Midheaven on May 17, 2017, when he was appointed special counsel. (Regardless of birth time, he had transiting Mars square his Mars: He seems to have entered this as a warrior.)

He has a heavily dignified SSR this year. I don't know if this is appropriate, though the coverage at the time emphasized how almost universally respected and trusted he is. His SLR for the occasion features double Plutos, among other things, plus more Jupiter. (His Solunars for this time and for this event are concentrations of repeat Jupiter-Pluto activity, the same aspects that, in mundane astrology, are at the center of the challenges to the Trump administration.)

So, again, I say... not bad. It's just a start, but the puzzle pieces fit together pretty well so far. We know his date and place of birth in any case. For those who want to play around with a time, 4:45 AM might be one to watch.
