Whenever people start talking about astrology and the history of our country, one question is bound to be brought up. What one zodiac sign have the most presidents been born under?
The answer is a tie. There have been five Scorpio presidents; John Adams, James Garfield, Warren G. Harding, James K. Polk and Theodore Roosevelt. There also has been five Aquarian presidents; William Henry Harrison, Abraham Lincoln, William McKinley, Franklin Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan.
Second place is also a tie with four presidents born under each of the following signs; Taurus, Cancer, Leo, Libra, Capricorn and Pisces.
Scorpions can certainly be effective politicians. Not only is the sign noted for its strength and determination, it is also a very intuitive sign. This can give a Scorpio the ability to pick up on subtle energies that others may miss. Having said that, there has not been a Scorpio president since Warren Harding who was president from 1921 to 1923. It is interesting to note that Hillary Clinton is a Scorpio.
People that are Aquarians are very ultruistic in their outlook. It is the sign of the humanitarian. Out of all of the signs I believe that Aquarius fits the office of the presidency the best.
The great Emancipator, Abraham Lincoln was an Aquarius. He freed the slaves and helped the Union to victory during the Civil War. Franklin Roosevelt who brought the country out of the Great Depression, also helped guide the country through the Second World War.
Some of our presidents have had an avid interest in metaphysics. George Washington, a Pisces, was one of them. Our first president supposedly had a vision at Valley Forge where an angel showed him the future of America. Though there are many historians who believe that the event never occurred.
It is widely known that Nancy and Ronald Reagan were both followers of astrology. When the president was governor of California he enacted a law making it legal to practice astrology in the state.
The signs with the least amount of presidents are Aries, Gemini and Virgo. It’s interesting to note that very few Aries people have made it to the White House. For example, the last Aries president was John Tyler who was in office from 1841 to 1845. If you really want to succeed in politics you have to be able to compromise and that is very hard for any Aries to do.
Were any of the presidents born on the 4th of July? One president was born on the patriotic holiday. Calvin Coolidge was born on July 4th 1872. It is very interesting to note that three of our presidents died on the 4th of July. John Adams, Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe all died on July 4th. Two of those, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died with hours of each other on July 4, 1826.
At least one president has been born under every sign, but our country went without a Gemini president for more than 180 years before John F. Kennedy was elected in 1960. Since then we have had an additional Gemini president, George W. Bush.
