Will AOC’s powerhouse birth chart lead to the White House or out of office?

When it comes to one of the most prominent rising voices in American politics, there’s one leader who continues to generate noise: U.S. representative for New York’s 14th congressional district, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

She became the youngest woman ever to serve in Congress when she was elected to the House of Representatives in 2018—no small feat. Since then, she’s been a major activist within the Democratic Party, eager to “tax the rich.”

Whether you agree with her beliefs or not, she is certainly one of the most outspoken politicians on the scene—rubbing elbows with the rich and famous and landing on the cover of a number of high-profile magazines including Time and a controversial anti-Trump shoot for Vanity Fair in designer duds worth more than $14,000. In May 2022, she excitedly announced that she’s become engaged to longtime boyfriend, Riley Roberts.

So what makes her such a firecracker—nature, nurture or the stars? What lies ahead for her political career and personal life? Join me as we dive into her cosmos because I’m a pop culture astrologer and I can see it all.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s birth chart shows she’s a champion for justice

AOC was born on October 13, 1989. This makes her an intellectual LibraSun with a fiery Aries Moon. When it comes to elemental energy for her, she has a strong dose of Fire and Air—which brings her tremendous levels of passion and a high capacity for communication and social interaction.

Her birth time has been listed online, which means that we can calculate her Rising Sign, which is a Sagittarius Ascendant. This means that the way she presents herself is feisty, outspoken and dramatic—she’ll jump headfirst impulsively toward whatever she believes and unapologetically state whatever is on her mind. This is further emphasized by her Aries Moon—revealing that she is bold, confident and unafraid of conflict. She puts her whole heart into her opinions, ideas and beliefs.

Also, Uranus, the planet of rebellion and eccentricity, is within her Ascendant, as is her Saturn, the planet of strength and maturity. Neptune, the planet of visionaries, also stands in her Ascendant, too. With so much power and energy in her identity, no wonder she commands so much respect and is unafraid to champion for herself and others.

Other houses in her chart are also especially revealing. Her Mercury, the planet of communication, is united with her Midheaven—which ties to her career and public recognition. She’s a master speaker and thinker. Mars, which ties to her drive, as well as her Sun, revealing where she shines the brightest, are also in her Midheaven, too, showing that she was meant for power, glory and success.

All of these planets are in Libra, which reveals that she is immensely focused on balance, justice, equality and fairness. Libra also holds ties to negotiators, law and politicians—so yes, she was meant for this. Pluto, the planet of transformation and power, is in her sector of communities, group organizations and “the people,” revealing that she was meant to be a major force for change and she has a hypnotizing power on others. She also wishes to work for the social good.

When looking at key astrological alignments, two major themes are further seen. She’s a mover, shaker and doer. She also is drawn to going against the norm and breaking conventions. With her Sun and Mars united, her confidence and combativeness will take her far—she is tirelessly hardworking and revels in victory beyond all else.

What are predictions for Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?

Going forward, what lies ahead? First off, I want to draw attention to the fact that Jupiter, the planet of miracles, is dancing across the sky from her in her solar chart—and this always brings major growth around relationships. It entered here May 10, 2022 and will remain here throughout most of this year and the first half of 2023. Were engagement and marriage written in her stars? Absolutely, and her fiancé, Riley, is certainly a soulmate. I love this for them.

Also, she is experiencing exciting eclipses in her natal chart that tie to true love and—wait for it—fertility. These are taking place in 2022 and 2023—and with Jupiter dancing through that sphere in 2023 and 2024, there’s a high likelihood she could get pregnant if she wishes for this. As for long-term professional predictions, her career in politics will continue to grow in power and visibility for years to come. With so much energy in her Midheaven, there’s also a possibility that she may be groomed for President later on down the line. You heard it here first.
