Lisa Nowak's Psychological Profile
NewsScope, February 12, 2007
NASA astronaut Lisa Nowak's bizarre escapade her 900-mile drive from Houston to Orlando to forcefully resolve a romantic triangle landed her on front pages across the nation. For the first time in months, a news story captured more public attention than the quagmire in Iraq, as transiting Juno, the partnership asteroid, headed into an exact square with the U.S. Pluto.
Under stress, Juno-Pluto contacts can have a compulsive or obsessive quality when it comes to relationships. Lisa Nowak (May 10, 1963; Washington DC; time unknown) was born with a Juno-Pluto conjunction, so her chart resonates with the current Juno transit to the U.S. Pluto. Two weeks earlier, she separated from her long-time husband, as transiting Uranus opposed her Juno.
Lisa Nowak's Taurus Sun opposes Neptune, and squares Mars on one side and Saturn on the other, making a dynamic Grand Cross. At its best, this configuration gives her vision, determination, and an incredible competitive edge. However, her Mars forms a trine to Venus, which in turn is sextile Saturn. Whenever the love planets Venus and Mars are entangled with an outer planet, romantic triangles become likely.
The closest aspects in Lisa's chart are the aspects Mars makes to her Sun and Venus, with all three planets located at 19 degrees of their respective signs. Last week, when she began her odyssey, transiting Neptune was at 19 degrees, and was then activated by the transiting Sun's conjunction. NASA officials are questioning their psychological profiling techniques, and wondering what they can learn from this incident. Maybe they should try astrology!.
