Jon Huntsman’s Birth Time Discovered

Posted by on Thursday, June 16 20119 Comments

Jon Huntsman, the former Governor of Utah and most recently the US Ambassador to China has not yet announced his presidential run against his former boss, (Barack Obama!), but when he does, we will be lucky enough to work with his actual chart because his birth time has been discovered! He was born at 11:58 am on March 26th, 1960 in Redwood City, California. In my article on the “Status of the 2012 Presidential Candidates’ Birth Times” I noted that out of all the prospective candidates, Huntsman’s would be the easiest to obtain due to California’s open birth records policy, but I did not have the money necessary to purchase the document. “Suzy” alerted me in the comments section to this article from The Salt Lake Tribune in which a reporter tracked down Huntsman’s birth certificate, complete with the time. This would appear to give the time an AA rating. Here is the chart:

There are a couple of things I notice right off the bat that I know will be important for studying Jon Huntsman. His Sun and Moon are within 14 degrees from a Node, figuring in that the Moon moves about 13 degrees every day, I know automatically that he was born about less than half a day before a solar eclipse. After checking eclipse records, this is in fact the case. This is something to take note of because we are currently in eclipse season. What makes his Sun and Moon even more remarkable is that they were both culminating at the MC at the time of his birth. I also know that Uranus is currently transiting in the early degrees of Aries, so he is in the midst of Uranus transiting his Sun, Moon and Midheaven. Since the Midheaven is about career and reputation, and the Sun is about the expressive self and the Moon about the reflective self, it seems quite appropriate that Uranus will be transiting over these points as he strives for the highest office in the land. Huntsman is set to announce his presidential bid on June 21st, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some other significant development with his campaign by the time of the solar eclipse at 9 Cancer on July 1st.

I have to give a huge thanks to Suzy to alerting me to this, as well as to Thomas Burr, the Salt Lake Tribune reporter who unwittingly did us all a huge favor! Check out this article to see how many other candidates we still need birth times for!

    I reviewed Jon Huntsman chart and I think he has a very credible chance of beating Obama in 2012 and becoming President of USA. He is running a fantastic period from 2009 to 2014. In November 2011, Saturn will enter Libra which is Huntsman’s 5th house of Good Luck. Saturn is his 9th Lord of Fortune and Rules his Moon’s asterism. Jon’s Moon is located in his 10th house of Karma/Profession. There is an excellent chance that Jon Huntsman’s name, fame and position in the Republican Primaries will take a noticeable move to front and center and he will most likely win the Republican nomination for President.

    well I can only hope that the Uranus/LEO in 2, opposing Mars/AQ in 8 would bestow new, inventive solutions with the resources of the US.
    He surely has the Aries thrust and presentation…the Venus, Merc in Pisces in 9 should give him an intuitive ability for foreign(9th) matters. especially if it is trine Asc. If he can heed that No Node and slow down the knee-jerk response, and Virgoize/perfect, the communication I think he def has a shot. We need his vigor and youth.
    He is from Utah…is he also LDS?? just wonderin and sayin in Peoria.
    Thx for this excellent site and info…

  • Arizona Sue says:

    Yep he is, I read about the Jon Huntsman’s faith.
