I got Tim Kaine’s birth time! ‘Who dat be?’ you ask. Well, he be a US Senator from Virginia, former Virginia governor and former chairman of the DNC. So, y’know, a slouch. He’s the guy who looks like a jolly uncle version of Joe McCarthy if he had gotten the Ted Cruz botoxed out of his face. Or if two caterpillars did battle on Dilbert’s boss’s horn-haired face. My pop culture references are all over the place. Anyway, you may not have heard of him yet, but he may be just about to become pretty big in the news. Like, Clinton-Kaine 2016 big. Luckily for us, Tim Kaine was born in Minnesota, and Minnesota is a cool state for astrologers looking for birth times.
According to an uncertified copy of his birth certificate from the Minnesota Department of Health, Tim Kaine was born at 7:59 AM on February 26th, 1958 in St. Paul, Minnesota.
I know, I know, it’s an Astrodienst chart. I would have put up a Solar Fire chart with whole sign houses but I’m in between moves and I don’t have access to any of my programs and DEAL WITH IT.
The fact that the time was not rounded up to 8 am gives me some reassurance that the time is precise, and luckily the Ascendant and Midheaven are not terribly close to any sign boundaries. I just got this time so I have not yet applied Zodiacal Releasing from the Lot of Spirit to his chart as I have for Clinton and Trump. However, something that immediately impressed me is that Kaine’s Ascendant in Aries is ruled by Mars in Capricorn in the 10th. Powerful role in the chart, powerfully placed by house and sign. Someone like that would be dogged, driven, aggressive, ambitious, wily, scrappy, tenacious.
Even more eyebrow-raising is that Kaine is currently experiencing a once-in-a-lifetime transit to his Mars, a conjunction from Pluto. As the ruler of his Ascendant, one would expect this time to stand out for him, as a public period of unparalleled courage and boldness in his life. If he were selected as Clinton’s VP, one of his main roles would be as an attack dog against Trump, in which case he would likely provide good examples of this transit in action. Especially at the Mars-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn around October 19th 2016, the date of the final presidential debate.
Come to think of it, there is someone else who was born with Mars ruling their Ascendant in the 10th conjunct Pluto… Can you guess who?
Do you think Clinton will pick Kaine as her running mate? Feel free to comment below with a hateful diatribe full of fallacies and outright falsehoods while frothing at the mouth!*
