Her chart’s astrodyne report

Her dominant planet–key decanate profile

Feinstein’s dominant planet Mercury is conjunction Pluto in the second decanate of Cancer so the special feature of her I feel mental activity and way of communicating is her capacity to be influenced and guided by revelation information that streams into her mind from out of the blue.  She’s also resourceful, energetic and very emotional.

Feinstein is a top-notch communicator (Mercury) and is at her best when she’s talking and expressing her thoughts, ideas and opinions, but she has a personal struggle with her sensual desires and what she perceives are the limitations imposed by death.

Mercury conjunction Pluto indicates a powerful thought connection with unseen intelligences and the moral/spiritual quality of her thoughts and feelings matches the quality of their revelations.

The Sun in her chart is in the first decanate of Cancer so her I feel individuality is specifically defined by moods, extreme sensitivity to her surroundings and a strong susceptibility to domestic intrigue.  

Moon is in the third decanate of Gemini so her I think mentality is specified by reason and an over reliance on deductive reasoning.  She has a tendency towards self-centeredness that can be overcome by cultivating idealism and religion.

And the ascendant is in the second decanate of Aries so her I am personality is defined by exaltation, a noble affection, a persistent ambition for power and the ability to sway and influence other people’s thinking.
