Robert Kennedy: The Year Ahead (2024)

Robert Francis Kennedy Jr., born on January 17, 1954 (time unknown), in Washington DC, embodies the traits of ambition, determination, and responsibility as a Capricorn. He has entered the presidential race as an independent this past year (on October 9, 2023). This article will explore the chart of his announcement to run as an independent and see what it offers in terms of insights into his chances of winning the Presidency this year.


The Limits of Prediction for Robert Kennedy

The absence of Robert Kennedy exact time of birth poses significant limitations on the accuracy of predictive techniques in astrology concerning his chances for winning the presidency. Without this crucial detail, we are unable to construct an accurate birth chart, thus eliminating the possibility of precise calculations for techniques such as a Solar Return or Profections.

These methods rely on the precise positions of celestial bodies at the moment of birth to forecast significant events and themes for an individual’s life. Additionally, without a birth time, determining the Time Lord or ruling planet for a specific period becomes impossible, further hindering astrological predictions regarding Kennedy’s electoral prospects.

For this reason, we will look at the chart of his announcement to run as an independent, which he did on October 9, 2023 at 12:00 pm in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.


Not an Auspicious Chart

Unfortunately, this announcement chart has some problematic aspects that do not indicate a favorable outcome in pursuit of the United States Presidency.

Sun Conjunct the South Node and Mars

The conjunction of the Sun, Mars, and the South Node in Libra in the 11th House suggests challenges for Robert Kennedy in pursuing an independent presidential run. Mars will fuel conflicts and obstacles in achieving objectives. The South Node, symbolizing karmic debts or repeated problems, indicates a tendency to face issues from the past, also hindering progress. This alignment warns of potential setbacks and conflicts stemming from unresolved issues and karmic patterns, complicating efforts for winning. In other words, there is plenty of baggage to keep a successful run from happening.

Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto All Retrograde

The announcement of an independent presidential run coinciding with retrograde Jupiter, Chiron, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto underscores a complex and challenging astrological landscape. Retrograde planets often signify delays and recurring past issues. Jupiter’s retrograde suggests a reassessment of belief systems and expansion of the message, while Saturn’s retrograde may signal obstacles in establishing structure and authority.

The presence of Chiron, the wounded healer, retrograde, indicates a need for healing old wounds before progress can be made (like leaving the Democratic Party to run as an independent). Uranus and Neptune’s retrogrades point to unexpected disruptions and illusions being exposed. Pluto’s retrograde highlights deep transformations and power struggles. Together, these retrograde movements suggest an energy of restrictions, setbacks, and reevaluations, complicating the path forward for a successful independent presidential candidacy.

Retrograde Pluto in Capricorn in 2nd House Square Mars and the South Node in Libra in the 11th House

The square aspect between retrograde Pluto in Capricorn in the 2nd House and Mars and the South Node in Libra in the 11th House poses significant challenges. Retrograde Pluto signifies deeply embedded status issues and power struggles, particularly regarding his impact on both of the front running candidates of the two party systems, which could encompass political institutions and financial mechanisms crucial for a successful campaign. This aspect suggests that issues of control and manipulation within these systems may intensify, potentially hindering RFK Jr.’s ability to navigate them effectively.

Additionally, Mars and the South Node in Libra in the 11th House indicate conflicts arising from alliances and social networks, crucial elements in any political campaign. The square aspect between these planets accentuates the potential for confrontations and clashes within RFK Jr.’s social or political circles. Overall, this aspect pattern underscores the formidable hurdles inherent in challenging the established political order, suggesting that RFK Jr. may face significant obstacles in his bid for the presidency.

Moon in Leo in the 9th House Square Uranus in Taurus in the 6th House

The square aspect between the Moon in Leo in the 9th House and Uranus in Taurus in the 6th House presents more tensions and challenges. The Moon in Leo suggests for Robert Kennedy a strong need for recognition, leadership, and personal expression, particularly in matters related to beliefs, ideals, and political philosophy, all of which are emphasized in the 9th House. However, the square aspect to Uranus in Taurus indicates disruptions and sudden changes, particularly in areas concerning work, health, and daily routines, highlighted in the 6th House.

This aspect pattern suggests that Robert Kennedy may encounter unexpected obstacles and disruptions in his quest for personal and ideological fulfillment, particularly regarding his role in the public sphere and the practicalities of campaigning. The tension between his desire for self-expression and the need to adapt to unforeseen circumstances within his work and daily life could pose challenges to his ability to maintain stability and consistency in his campaign. Overall, this aspect pattern underscores the need for flexibility and adaptability in navigating the unpredictable terrain of a presidential campaign, suggesting that RFK Jr. may need to reconcile his personal ambitions with the practical realities of the political arena.

Chances for Winning the Presidency

Astrologically speaking, not very good. Although unaspected Venus in Virgo in the 10th House implies a practical and independent demeanor, and the “out of sign” trine between retrograde Saturn in Pisces and Mars in Libra provides energy for enduring a lengthy process, the chart as a whole lacks support. Additionally, the general energy of Pluto playing around in Aquarius temporarily, but in Capricorn at the actual time of the election, suggests that this is not the year for a breakthrough with an independent candidate, especially one from either of the traditional parties.

The astrological backdrop of Pluto’s transit through Aquarius this year indeed suggests a stirring of energy favoring independent candidates for the presidency. This alignment hints at a potential shake-up of traditional political structures, fostering an environment ripe for alternative voices and non-conventional approaches to gain traction. However, the crucial factor lies in Pluto’s eventual return to Capricorn (between September 2nd and November 19th) at the time of the election (November 5th), signaling a return to more established power dynamics and structures.

This shift indicates that while the energy for independent candidates may be potent during the year (from January 20th to September 2nd), the astrological alignment favors the likelihood of one of the two major party candidates prevailing in the election. Consequently, it suggests that breaking through the entrenched two-party system may require waiting for a future alignment where the astrological energy is more conducive to challenging established political norms and structures … when Pluto is firmly in Aquarius and Neptune is firmly in Aries, which will be the case for both in 2028.
