Cheney and Ending Degrees
Liz Cheney is in the news lately, so I thought we should look at her chart. It is a very interesting one. Her Moon on the 9th house cusp is at 29 degrees Sagittarius, so uber Sagittarius. Sagittarius is a pretty truthful placement. In Cheney's chart the Moon is square to Saturn in the 12th house, also at 29 degrees, in Pisces, the last degree in the horoscope, so by its nature a mystical degree. By progression her Sun is 29 degrees 35 minutes Virgo, creating an uncomfortable t-square in her chart with the Moon and Saturn. Liz Cheney is showing us the positive effect of squares. You are forced into action. There is tension, but a resolution is required. And she has been very resolute in adhering to the Constitution, unlike most of the rest of her party, as it relates to the Jan. 6 hearings. Note also that her progressed Midheaven in conjunct natal Lilith in Pisces by degree. Black Moon Lilith in aspect to the Midheaven can show a rise to positions of leadership by being true to yourself. In her natal chart Cheney has an out of bounds moon. Steven Forrest describes this as follows:
The Moon is then, in other words, out of the King’s sight. No longer under Daddy’s thumb. We might say that has moved beyond the Pale. Gone out of control. Or gone wild. It has broken the rules. It has shattered the boundaries, broken the mold, crossed the Rubicon. Bravely, or drunkenly, the Moon has said, “Roll the dice.
The Out of Bounds Moon is spontaneous, emancipated, liberated, released in its own recognizance, and utterly on its own.
Liz Cheney has shown incredible bravery by breaking with her own party to defend her true beliefs. (9th house Sagittarius moon). Assisting her is progressed Jupiter (the greater benefic) trine to her natal Saturn at 29 Pisces. Saturn is the ruler of her career house, and when Jupiter is trine Saturn there is success. On her primary election day, August 16, 2022, transit of lucky Venus is conjunct her Sun in the fourth house in Leo, and transit Uranus is exact in a sextile to Jupiter at 18 Cancer and trine to her career point. In roughly five months here progressed Sun moves out of Virgo (work) into Libra, the sign of partnership. This does indicate some kind of major change, but her progressed Moon stays in Capricorn and the 10th house so it seems her work would continue.
