Astrology is based on the notion that the stars, planets, and celestial bodies overhead influence life on Earth. When it comes to personality and predictions, astrologers use an individual’s date, time, and location of birth to render a snapshot of the sky at their exact moment of birth. Since the sky is always moving, accurate birth info is extremely important when calculating a birth chart.

Fortunately, presidential candidate Cory Booker satiated our astrological curiosities by publicly sharing his birth info. In response to a happy birthday tweet from a supporter, Senator Cory Booker posted his exact time of birth (1:10 a.m.) in this monumental response. Combining this firsthand information with his date and location of birth, we have enough data to render his full and complete birth chart—and what a beauty it is!

Did Senator Booker know that, by sharing his birth info, we would be analyzing his birth chart as a ~presidential candidate~? Honestly, probably: His chart is very mystical! So without further ado, here’s what the planets have to say about everyone’s favorite vegan senator.

TAURUS SUN

Your Sun sign reveals your external energy, the ways in which you radiate your personality. Cory was born under a Taurus Sun, and since Taurus is symbolized by a bull, others often perceive him to have this tough animal's hard-headed essence. The first earth sign of the zodiac, Taurus is connected to pragmatism, rationality, and resources. Taurus is known to be obstinate, but this rigidity is merely a byproduct of their incredible loyalty. It should come as no surprise that Cory is extremely committed to his personal morals, including his veganism.

Since Taurus is associated with the Earth, Booker is deeply connected to ecology, agriculture, and animals. He takes climate change seriously and doesn’t just advocate progress but is also willing to lead by example. This relentless commitment is also reinforced by another, equally important astrological placement in Senator Booker’s chart....

But First, Cory’s Most Taurus Sun Quote:

On how he will enact his $3 trillion plan to combat climate change: “Climate change is a challenge to the moral imagination of this nation. We have all the power to transform our environment. What’s lacking is will. It’s not a matter of can we, it’s do we have the collective will.”

AQUARIUS RISING

Your Rising sign (also known as the Ascendant) reflects how you perceive reality. As an Aquarius Rising, Senator Booker is deeply connected to progress and innovation. This placement makes him a humanitarian with a revolutionary spirit. Aquarius Risings aren’t afraid to do things differently, which gives them a reputation for being a bit unconventional or eccentric. In Mr. Booker’s chart, there’s a constant battle between structure (Taurus Sun) and invention (Aquarius Rising) and thanks to another pivotal celestial body in his birth chart, Cory is hyperaware of this internal tension.

Cory’s Most Aquarius Rising Quote:

On his biggest pet peeve: “I can’t stand stickers on fruit. The sticker’s hard to peel off, then once you peel it off, the [sticky] stuff’s there. I’ve got to rewash again. Something about that bothers me.”

VIRGO MOON

Your Moon sign symbolizes your emotional inner world, or how process your “feels.” As a Virgo Moon, Cory is sharp, focused, and extremely detail-oriented. Virgos find the cracks in any system, so when it shows up in a lunar placement, such meticulous tendencies are turned inward. It’s likely that Cory is extremely hard on himself, which is why he works hard to achieve greatness in both his personal and professional life. Cory will stop at nothing to be the best, which is why he’s willing to do whatever it takes to secure his spot in the 2020 election.

Cory’s Most Virgo Moon Quote:

On fighting for women’s rights: And men should not be taking a back seat on this. They should be leading on this along with women. That’s something I’m going to, no matter what position I hold, that I’m going to fight for. To live in a country where someone who is a survivor of rape and incest as a teenager, and they’re going to be told by the government what they have to do with their body.

And now, an astrological prediction for Cory:

On April 13, 2020, Saturn—the taskmaster of the zodiac—will move into Senator Booker’s First House, the area of the chart connected to identity and self. This is a major transit: The last time it occurred was in 1991, when the senator was 21 years old. Cory graduated from Stanford University in 1991 (with a B.A. in political science). Based on this cycle, we can safely assume that Cory will be “graduating” into the next phase of his life next year….So does that mean Cory will move into the White House?

This transit could also mean that his romantic relationship with actress Rosario Dawson, who is also a Taurus Sun, will be getting more serious. As an astrologer, I wouldn’t be surprised if Cory is ~graduating~ to his next role as a husband because the most frequent same-sign relationship I encounter is Taurus-Taurus. (He also did mention wedding plans in his interview with Cosmopolitan editor-in-chief Jessica Pels, soooooo...🤔.)
