What time of birth do you have for Bernie?Jim Eshelman wrote: ↑Thu Sep 06, 2018 7:47 pmThe ironic truth about Bernie is that he is an elitist. A culminating Sun with a Pisces Moon most closely aspecting Jupiter couldn't be anything else, and the Pisces Moon and Venus-Mars let him bring passion and idealism to it. His schtick has been to find the way to get followers to passionately believe they are better than anyone else. His motivates are a million times better than Hitler's, but his tactics have a great deal of overlap: rousing unreasoning passion to lead people to the promised land through their superiority.I don't feel that these things explain the tremendous popularity of Bernie Sanders, for instance, whose closest aspect is a sextile between Jupiter and the Moon.
Here's my standard interpretation of Moon-Jupiter (I think you've seen it). I can't swear which traits most get them elected historically. (In the SSR it's totally different. SSR Jupiter is a transiting Jupiter, so they're blessed with luck. Quite a different mechanism. But you moved from there to a question about natal Moon-Jupiter.) I don't actually understand what it is that gets people elected, though luck, a sense of superiority and class, representing themselves as something better than the other guy, and a spirit of generosity and caretaking "their kind," their constituents, their countrymen who are like them, seems it would have a great deal to do with it.
Ambitious, noble, desires success, aspires to take the lead. (Natural ‘host,’ likes to play ringmaster in all life areas including social & sexual hospitality.) Desires only the best (things & circumstances) for self & loved ones. Possible social elitism, feigned superiority, aristocratic conceit. Drawn to quality. Usually good-humored, entertaining, kind, generous. Strong beliefs (often religious or patriotic intensity, moralistic, judgmental).
