January 2017


StarScoop: Michelle Obama (born Jan. 17, 1964) has captured my attention over the past eight years, as I’m sure she has many of you, and I couldn’t let the first lady leave office without showing gratitude for her contribution. Although she is a Capricorn by Sun sign, her chart has plenty of underlying influences that made me take note. Her Venus-Mercury charm shines through with a warmth and sincerity that is wrapped in a practical and determined personality due to the Capricorn-Pisces influence in her natal chart.

Over the years, her great sense of humor and steady hand was extended to families around the world. Her undying fight for children, health care and the things that matter to the average person like you and me was touching.

Whether you are a Republican, Democrat or other, you have to admit that Michelle Obama has been a class act from the moment she stepped on the world stage. She showed strength, dignity and an ability and capacity to extend her nurturing nature out to people and organizations in hopes that others might follow and help out.

You could easily see her supportive contribution to the president and her willingness to be a strong advocate and sounding board for him during difficult times. She rose the bar when it comes to what a first lady should be and do.

The upcoming year shows plenty of opportunities for this intelligent, well-spoken and heartfelt woman.
