When two reality TV stars meet in the Oval Office behind the big desk, you know the world is topsy-turvy. Well, we are where we are… and here at The OA we love a great picture. The official White House photographer(s) just keep on giving…
What’s also interesting is that this week, Donald Trump did exactly what Ms. Kardashian had asked him to do on this occasion, and pardoned Alice Johnson, a 63-year-old black grandma serving a life sentence for a first offence drug crime. So Kardashian’s trip to the Oval Office was a success. Clearly, she read the president right, handled him correctly and got the win.
In fact for both of them, it’s an easy win. He gets to have his picture taken with one of the most famous women in America, and she gets to do a proper good deed. Of course, she looks pretty creeped out, but there she is, appropriately dressed in a figure concealing black get-up that covers her right up to the neck.
Kim Kardashian is a remarkable person — and she has a remarkable natal chart. Just in case you haven’t heard of her, which I doubt, she is the über-reality TV star who has made a gazillion dollars from letting the world follow her every move on twitter, instagram and TV. It’s a family business — her sisters, mother, step-family, children, husband — are all involved. But she is the most visible face of the tribe, the torch bearer.
Just to point out a few simple astrological sparklers in this chart. She has glamorous, spell-caster Neptune Rising — perfect for a star — and expansive Jupiter dead on the midheaven: fame and fortune, high status.
Of course her route to fame was through her family — and look at her powerfully placed Moon in Pisces, exactly on the IC, the angle of family and opposing Jupiter (which of course rules Pisces). It’s a direct channel up from family to fame.
Of course, beauty is Kardashian’s power. Her Sun is in Venus-ruled Libra and her Venus is right near the top of the chart. That Venus in Virgo gives her precise and focused attention to detail. She’s probably very good at putting on her own make-up.
She also has a tremendous stellium in Libra, the sign of fashion and surface decoration — Sun, Lilith-Pluto (power), Juno (famous marriage), Saturn (ambition).
Kardashian appears to be channeling that Lilith-Pluto in this photograph. And remarkably (I only noticed this after I’d written the previous sentence!), Lilith and Pluto were conjunct on May 30, and making an exact square to her own conjunction of the same. (Wow astrology!)
Kardashian used her special Libra power — glamour and beauty to leverage exactly what she wanted from the Plutocrat in Capricorn sitting behind the desk.
Indeed, you could say, looking at that picture again: on the right Pluto and on the left Lilith. Capricorn is, of course, the sign of established power or government.
