The first thing that springs to an astrologer’s mind when considering Laura Bush’s chart is the remarkable balance it reveals between a huge generosity of spirit and a capacity for uncompromising focus on life’s practicalities. The second is that it’s eerily similar to Hillary Clinton’s chart. Not only are both intense, wilful Scorpios, and with the achievement minded Saturn and uncompromising ruler of Scorpio, Pluto, positioned together, each is superb at behind the scenes manoeuvring. Also, both have the Moon – key to emotions – in idealistic Pisces, indicating that they’re devoted mothers and that children’s welfare is considerably more than a politically expedient cause. But where Hillary’s Mercury and Venus – communication and relationship, respectively – are in Scorpio, indicating a secretive streak, Laura’s are in the forthright Sagittarius. What’s more, with the Sun next to the expansive Jupiter, she’s unselfconsciously confident. Thus, when asked which previous First Lady she’d emulate, her response: “I’ll just be Laura Bush.” Everyone from fashion-watchers to political analysts are waiting to see how life in the White House will change her. Judging by her chart, however, the answer is obvious: not at all.
