November 22, 2013, marks the 50th anniversary of the death of beloved Gemini President John F. Kennedy. And as crowds gather at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, Texas, the site of his tragic assassination, most of those on hand to honor the late president are not just thinking about his death -- they are remembering why he was so loved.
It's widely known that President Kennedy was a brilliant, charming and handsome fella born to a wealthy and prominent family in Brookline, Mass., at 3 p.m. on May 29, 1917. And while he spent his younger years as a less-than-stellar student, preferring instead to chase girls and play sports, he went on to serve in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate before becoming the 35th president of the United States in 1961.
Much has been written about President Kennedy's political legacy -- the challenges he faced with foreign crises in Cuba and Berlin, and his coups achieving the Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty and the Alliance for Progress. His dalliances with the ladies have also been widely reported.
Far less has been written about the Astrology of John F. Kennedy, a complicated man with a complicated birth chart that holds many clues to his dapper brand of brilliance.
President Kennedy was a Gemini Sun with a Libra Moon and a Virgo Rising. His communication planet, Mercury, is in practical Taurus. His love planet, Venus, is in flirty Gemini. And his action planet, Mars, is in down-to-earth Taurus.
At a glance this would indicate a bright, communicative person with balanced emotions and a sense of fairness, and also a critical, no-nonsense approach to daily life. His playful Gemini qualities are at odds with his practical Virgo and Taurus energy, creating obvious contradictions that make looking deeper into his birth chart a must!
