Chief Justice Roberts and Saturn
As Saturn moves through the sign Aquarius, those with planets in this sign have been met with challenges. President Zelensky with the invasion of his country, Elon Musk with his purchase of Twitter, and now the Chief Justice of the United States with someone having leaked the draft opinion which would likely overturn Roe v. Wade.
I don't have a birthtime for the Chief Justice, but we do know he was born Jan. 27, 1955 in Buffalo, New York. This gives him an Aquarius Sun, as well as Mercury in Aquarius. Mercury is at 25 Aquarius. Saturn by transit is almost to his Mercury. His Mercury in Aquarius is very active, in aspect to every outer planet in his chart. The chart below is cast for noon.
Those born with planets in Aquarius often have a very high level of intelligence. The high school the Chief Justice attended had to create a curriculum just for him, as he had surpassed the normal curriculum. I saw him argue a case before the Supreme Court when he was still in private practice. He was flawless. Over his time as Chief Justice, Roberts has striven to give the Court legitimacy and to ensure it is not seen as a political institution. He is well aware of the need for at least a bit of reverence for the Supreme Court. Saturn brings him this challenge. That is why some call Saturn the taskmaster.
