We rectified Reality Winner’s birth time which was taken from her Arrest Warrant. She was born December 4, 1991, in Kingsville, Texas, but her moment of relevance occurred just nine days ago in Augusta Georgia.
Reality Leigh Winner (née Sarah, it seems) was arrested for leaking an NSA report to The Intercept . She printed the report, photographed it with her cell phone, and then exchanged emails from her work account with the staff at The Intercept, before emailing the photos of the report to them, also from her work account. The Intercept shared the document with the NSA to confirm it — rather humorous isn’t that bit? When the FBI looked her up, according to the arrest affidavit, she admitted to being the one who sent the document.
She supports Black Lives Matter, is an ardent Bernie Sanders supporter, and of course, hates the Republican Party & Trump. None of that matters for either her job or her NSA clearance. Both are based from her stint in the Air Force because she had been a cryptographic linguist. According to the stories, she’s fluent in Farsi (Persian), Pashto (a national language of Afghanistan of Iranian origin), and Dari (the other national language of Afghanistan of Iranian origin) . These three are the major languages spoken in Afghanistan and probably Iran (formerly known as Persia) as well.
That means she was translating intercepted communications from Afghanistan or Iran, for consumption first by the NSA, which it then passed along to the CIA. (We know this because NSA intercepts and processes communications, while the CIA analyzes communications.)
We also know she had a top-secret clearance originally for some kind of extended background investigation, we are guessing about Afghanistan when she was in the Air Force. Ms. Winner then separated from the Air Force, we do not know why and took a job shortly afterward with government contractor Pluribus International that is a privately owned company headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia; no more information is known. She though was based in Augusta, Georgia.
As a top-secret clearance costs hundreds of thousands of dollars to process, literally, not to mention any months Pluribus probably asked the NSA, to sponsor extending her clearance, so she could get up and running (and billable) as soon as possible. Voilá, it is a done deal.
Her progressed chart is a Wedged framed by the trine from Jupiter to Saturn, which is actually a consolidation of her native Bowl temperament. Her progressed Neptune is opposite her progressed Ascendant with no T-Square for some expressive outlet, so she is bouncing between her duty and her feeling that she is the “odd one out” thanks to 16 Cancer.
There are a lot of reasons for that feeling of not fitting in, her change of name, that the NSA was not as progressively liberal as the Air Force or just being in the Peach Tree State. Any one of those could do it, and without a T-Square, we cannot positively id it other than her new employment and her are a mismatch.
Gimme some Respect
Chiron, that asteroid of Personal Respect, is in the first house at Leo 08.18, tells us that Ms. Winner has a high regard for herself, and it is sextile her Part of Fortune at Gemini 8 which incredibly is exactly conjunct her native Ascendant. That POF is now in the Eleventh House and between the two spheres creates a Yod with its apex at the North Node-Sun conjunction in the house of labor, the Sixth house, which makes the progressed South Node, in the Twelfth House of large institutes and secretive business, her midpoint.
E. C. Chambers writes that that midpoint degree highlights “unconventionality” and a desire for “recognition.” The Hyperion Symbols gives us the image of “Madrigal singers performing, ” that works well as Ms. Winner really did put on some solo performance.
Her Line of Social Significance Jupiter to Saturn is trine, suggesting her receiving plaudits was a slam-dunk. She sang the right tune to the right audience and the showers of praise.
Her Life of Efficiency or Social Adjustment, the aspect from Mars to Venus, is also an easy one, and semi-sextile.Her Life of Social Integration the aspect from Uranus to Neptune, conjunct. And finally, her Line of Vitality, or Personal Assurance, is also semi-sextile.
All of this suggests, that Ms. Winner’s timing was impeccable. As for whether her story holds up? That is a chart I do not have.
