Here is the chart of someone lacking in compassion. With no water or significant offset by water houses, she is in a word cold. So much emphasis on air and the air houses make her ideas rule her and with it being mostly fixed so are her ideas. She is unbendable, stubborn and fixed.
If you have any hope that she’ll modify her views in the white house then you are sadly mistaken, if anything she will try to convince everyone around her that she’s right. A negative trait of so much Aquarius is the inability to change her viewpoint. Instead she’ll argue her point until she wears down those around her. She won’t shrink from a fight, if anything she thinks she right about everything and will make it her business to change her surroundings to fit her ideas. She may think of them as ideals but without anything to balance her out, she lacks wisdom and combined with the Leo rising has a pomposity and sense of entitlement that rivals the old fashioned feudal lords of the middle ages.
Partnerships are important to her, without them she couldn’t go very far as we have seen publicly. Her Venus in Aries in the 8th also makes her relationships with women contentious and competitive along with her love relationships which ironically would always have a certain sexual flavor which is why her public relationship with John McCain seems more like a high school boyfriend than a meeting of equal minds.
Neptune is going through her public house (the 7th) giving her a certain glamour and adding to the confusion of who she really is. Uranus which rules most of the planets in her chart (Uranus rules Aquarius) is nataly in the conservative Virgo conjunct Pluto, meaning she has a need for power. It makes no good aspects to anything, keeping her ungrounded and leaning toward the past. She is a fundamentally insecure person and because of her lack of insight has narcissistic qualities or to go even further the possibility of personality disorder NPD (narcissistic personality disorder).
Mars conjunting her Sun gives her an aggressive public personality (probably also why she likes to shoot defenseless wolves from helicopters.) This has served her well as Jupiter and Venus are also in Aries, further pushing her into a selfish personality type who has a wanton desire for power.
With Neptune nataly in her fourth in Scorpio, she grew up with a lot of secrets many of them sexual in nature, this is reflected in her own home as evidence by her daughter’s pregnancy which she sought to hide. It also makes a bad aspect to her sun, causing problems for her sense of identity and her public image.
Although she may appear unintelligent she’s more likely a bit of an air head, married to her unbendable ideas, and uniformed in anything she’s not personally interested.
With so much Aquarius she is a rebel, likes to buck the system (evidenced by her involvement in the succession movement of Alaska) but while Aquarians have made some of the best presidents because of their ability to think outside the box, their charts have been balanced by compassion, mutability and the positive qualities of Aquarius — compassion for humanity. In Sarah’s case her rebellion is tied to her sense of personal power, her desire for power, bombasity, a need to be special and a tendency to selfishness. Her inability to respect authority and the law begs the question of whether she should be put in a position to uphold the laws of the land.
She has a difficult time seperating her public persona from who she really is and identifies her outer persona as herself which is one of the reasons I see narcissism heavily in her chart.
Adding to her conservative outlook is Saturn (the Great Malific) conjunct her Sun and Mars. She feels restricted and wants to restrict others as she has trouble differentiating herself from other people, projecting her own needs, ideas and personality dysfunction on her partners and the public at large.
The rumored affair with her husband’s business partner is more than likely not just a rumor. With Pluto going through her 5th in the year 2001 and hitting sensitive points with other things (I won’t get into the astrology) leading up to it. She had opportunity and a need for romance and power in her love relationship. This relationship more than likely went on for awhile, not just a drunken one night type of thing. Pluto going through this house often shakes up a person’s love relationship, ultimately changing it forever — death and rebirth.
As to whether Trig is really hers or not, astrologically speaking there is very strong indication that he is, however because he is hers (in terms of caring for him) these aspects would show the same indication. It doesn’t matter whether a child is adopted or birthed, the aspects would be the same so this isn’t so easy to read. I’d have to examine Trig’s chart to decipher this and since his birth time is not available as far as I know, the matter will remain unresolved for now.
