Political Astrology Blog Authors Featured on ABC, Fox News for Hillary 2016 Prediction

Posted by on Thursday, May 10 201210 Comments

Political Astrology Blog author Chris Brennan on the May 8th taping of Fox & Friends on the Fox News Channel Late last month we were contacted by ABC News reporter Dana Hughes, who wanted to get our opinion on whether Hillary Clinton would run for President again in 2016. There had been a new round of speculation on the matter that week from a number of news sources and political websites, and Dana was looking for a new angle on the story.

At the time we were still in the process of completing our prediction for the 2012 presidential election, and we hadn’t given much thought to 2016 yet, although we had done quite a bit of work with Hillary’s chart in the past.  At first we were slightly hesitant because her birth time has not yet been confirmed, but ultimately we agreed to do the interview because we felt that the birth time that we had was very compelling in the way that the chart associated with it matched up with the events in her life.

We use the 8:00 AM time with Scorpio rising.  The chart is not only very eminent, but when you apply timing techniques to it they seem to match what we know about the major events in her chronology rather well.

In preparing for the interview we paid particular attention to a technique called Zodiacal Releasing, which we also used for our presidential prediction, as well as other predictions in the past.  We noted that in 2015 she moves into a 30 month period that activates the sign Aquarius and the planet Saturn.  In order to understand what this means for Hillary we looked back into her past at previous times in which she entered into similar 30 month Aquarius periods, which has only happened a handful of times in her life, and we were surprised to see that they often correlated with pivotal periods in her career.  Some of these periods included:

  • Her run for Senate in 2000.
  • Her exploration of the possibility of running for governor of Arkansas in 1989.
  • Bill’s 1980 governor loss, and then 82 comeback victory.
  • Being elected President of her school’s student government in college in 1968, as well as receiving national attention due to her commencement speech in 69.
  • Being elected co-captain of the safety patrol in the fall of 1958, when she was in the 6th grade.

Ultimately, based on these repetitions, as well as some other considerations that involved different techniques, we came to the conclusion that it looked like she would actually run again in 2016.   And that is what we told Dana Huges, who subsequently published an article based on our interview on the ABC News website titled Hillary Clinton’s Political Future? It’s In the Stars.

The ABC News article was posted on the morning of Monday, May 7, and then later that morning we were contacted by a producer from Fox News who invited us to appear on Fox & Friends the following morning in order to discuss our prediction.  After some careful deliberation, I nominated Chris Brennan to represent us, should he accept their invitation, which Chris did.  The interview aired live on Fox News on Tuesday, May 8 at 8:45 AM EDT.  For some reason Fox News didn’t post the clip on their website afterwards, although Mediaite posted the exchange on their site about an hour later, which you can watch below:


I might be biased, but I think Chris did a really great job!

    I totally agree. Chris is a polished speaker. Too bad Gretchen didn’t allow him to speak more. We need more intelligent discussion like this, and more frequently.

    Again, great job Chris!

    It’s great to see someone on TV as an astrologer using, and thereby promoting, some ancient and sound methods, rather than a bunch of transit-of-the-week stuff or new age jargon. Chris also did an amazing job of staying level-headed, down-to-earth, and informative, even when he was obviously being set to be the butt of some joke. Impressive stuff, Patrick and Chris.

  • sheila says:

    Loved the reversal of pragmatic, no nonsence Chris as the astrologer playing against the dippy cheerful clueless news anchor.
    Reality in the minority!

  • John Yale says:

    Well done Chris. Fox news was probably expecting some hippy cartoon character, not a professional. Nice to see a serious-minded astrologer in the press, it’s needed!

  • Fran Perry says:

    Since I am an astrologer, myself…I think that, Patrick Watson, is an excellent astrologer…I agree with him one hundred percent…that even if mercury is going retrograde on November 6th it favors Obama’s sun sign in the 7th house of employment…and it is in a trine aspect to Obama’s sun sign…awesome…it should be interesting to see what “Mitt” with the stellium of planets in Pisces which is in a bad aspect to Mercury either going forward or backward…retrograde..isn’t going to be good for him at all..all I have to say…it is too bad..too sad…to a narcissistic person as “Mitt”…who thinks he is a god…and isn’t concerned about the middle class or the poor people..and his choice of VP Is as bad as hisself..believing in Bush did..a second to Bush..oh well..Obama is going to win…and that is it..with that Jupiter in the first house good to the moon in Gemini..the house of speculation…so I am so read everything that Patrick Watson writes on.

    Just put a link to this post from my post
    as the 21 deg Scorpio Total Eclipse falls exactly on her Asc for 8.00 time, just as she flies to help broker peace in Gaza/Israel.

    Very convincing chart.

    Thanks Chris.

  • Pippa Ponton says:

    Patrick I think I posted a thank you to Chris on your post! It relates to Hillary Clintons birth time! Sorry about mix-up.

    Although I do express my thanks for your work as well!!
