John F Kennedy Jr.

The Correct Chart

JFK jr SBT Chart


This chart was calculated in SolarFire v5 and can readily be duplicated in any astrology program.

First the data:

Date of birth: Nov-25-1960

Physical Birth Time: 00:22AM EST

Spiritual Birth Time: 11:55:57PM EST(Nov-24-1960)

Latitude: 38N54'44"

Longitude: 077W04'27"

In General:

JFKjr is taller than average and slender. He has a long narrow face showing the influence of his Sagittarian Sun. Although the characteristic triangular head shape is not as evident as some, he still has the typical squared off chin and straight nose of the Virgin on the Ascendant. His dark wavy hair is a sure sign that some form of Scorpio is near the angle. Pluto at 8 Virgo is less than 130' away from his Ascendant. Picture

JFK's Virgo rising sign is not at question, only the degree. He was well known for his concern over matters of health and kept himself in very good physical condition.

The lack of an intercepted pair in his chart may be the reason he found it difficult, in his younger days, to find a fulfilling vocational persuit.

Pluto in the first house is a dynamic and magnetic personality, one who can easily commannd the attention of the opposite sex. He was well known as being gracious and self effacing. Also he was well known as being a big heart throb for thousands, if not millions of women. A twevelth house Pluto would not have had nearly as pronounced an effect on others. The Nodal axis in the first, seventh house pair also shows a natural understanding of the ways of people and how to deal with interpersonal relatonships. He was wise to wait until he had a bit of maturity under his belt before marriage, as the south Node in the seventh house can lead to giving up self for the partner.

With three planets in the third house there is once again an emphasis on comunicative skills, although a Neptune, Mercury pairing is always suspect. Just how far is that glib and articulate tounge going to go. It is not at all surprising that he had finally found an outlet for his ability to communicate creativly by starting a magazine of his own.

Jupiter in the fourth house of family and ancestry points to the large and wealthy group that surrounded him all of his life.

A Venus, Saturn conjunction in the fifth shows caution in love. A wise? parent who constantly cautioned him about getting involved with the wrong sort of women. It was well known that his mother disagreed with many of his choices, constantly steering him towards the right women, to be his wife. As we know, even though married in his mid thirties, after three years of marriage he still had no children.

The Moon is in the sixth house. This placement would indicate many different types of work or an inability to find stability in the work place. This was certainly true of Kennedy. He never really got started until July 1988 and was by then 28 years old. That job lasted only four years and he didn't do anything again until the start of his magazine. In the background his family's political envolvement was always lurking. There was a constant but subtle pressure, by many, to become politically active.

The eleventh house Mars makes a strong statement about the nature of his magazine. John would perhaps have prefered for the publication to be more "not as usual" than the way it was. It was often reviewed as being far less controversial than the image originally intended. He did go out on a limb a couple of times when critisizing his own family members.

A twevelth house Uranus. Surely JFK jr. had a desire to leave a legacy to humanity, something that improved or in someway bettered the lives of everyone. Unfortunatly his death was sudden and quite unexpected. Was "George" magazine the niche he finally carved out for himself? Or was it only another stepping stone. Perhaps, if circumstances were different his legacy would have been more than 24 hour a day coverage over an entire weekend about a small plane's unusual dive into the sea.

So is this really John F. Kennedy Jr.'s chart? If you look at the physical birth time chart, you will not see one significantly different than that which is presented here. John's Sagittarius Sun shines strongly through his Virgo Ascendant. The earlier time of a few minutes most noticably brings Pluto closer to first cusp. And of course the later chart could never produce the aspects found below.

Secondary progressions for these events can be found by using the Naibod Arc in Right Ascention to progress the angles and planets. The Naibod Arc in Right Ascention is the only method that can be used successfully for Spiritual Birth Times. I recommend SolarFire v5 or Kepler v6. WinStar in any version does not have the ability to do progressions in the proper form.
