John Hickenlooper’s Birth Time and Natal Chart
Being from Colorado, I’m pretty excited about his speech. I’m also excited because I’m familiar with his birth chart, and it is actually pretty impressive in terms of eminence.
I actually made some statements to this effect about a year and a half ago when I did an interview with the local newspaper here in Denver.
The interview was with Bill Husted of The Denver Post, and he asked me to look at Hickenlooper’s birth chart, because he had just recently been elected as the Governor of Colorado in late 2010.
I told Husted that I needed the birth time, and so he called Hickenlooper, who called him back and told him that he was born at 5:00 AM, according to what he recalls from what his family members told him.
So, unfortunately it isn’t an exact time from the birth certificate, but it is still pretty good. Based on that, here is John Hickenlooper’s birth data and birth chart:
February 7, 1952 at 5:00 AM in Narberth, PA
Comments on the Birth Chart
Just a few brief comments about the chart:
- With Capricorn rising, the ruler of the ascendant is Saturn, which is exalted in Libra in the 10th house, in a mutual reception with Venus in Capricorn, and closely configured to both benefics, while being in aversion to Mars in Scorpio. The 10th house placement would make for someone who is very ambitious, and potentially very well-known and eminent. The only problematic points with Saturn are that it is contrary to the sect, retrograde, and kind of closely square to Uranus (the Neptune conjunction might be relevant as well, although it is kind of wide).
- He has a lot of dignified planets: the Moon is in its own sign, Venus is in a mutual reception with Saturn, Mars is in its own sign, and Saturn is exalted.
- Maybe the most difficult configuration in the chart is Mercury’s applying square to Mars, although it is mitigated somewhat by the fact that this is a night chart, so Mars is not as malefic as it would be otherwise. This probably gives him the ability to be a pretty forceful orator when he wants to be, so I’m looking forward to seeing how that plays out tonight in his speech.
Aside from that, it is worth mentioning that Hickenlooper’s birth chart looks a lot like the chart for the inception of the Democratic National Convention yesterday, and it seems to imply that this convention will be very important for him in particular.
Something I noticed and mentioned last year in the Denver Post interview is that if he was born just before 5:00 AM (since the time is clearly approximate), then it looks like he has some very important periods coming up in the future, and this seems to imply that we can expect to see him becoming even more well-known as a politician in the years to come.
