a tad of arrogance in Bradley’s tone when he wants to be left alone,
evidence of his Mercury in Leo, though his own growling probably
embarrasses his Venus in Virgo side. However, having the planet of
communication in Leo helps him make speeches and presentations, adding
color and drama to what might – if he had Mercury in Virgo too – be
a very drab performance.
He can wax eloquent on occasion, but tends to
sound like someone inviting you to take a look at something interesting
they’ve found. You’d almost expect to find him reading a book
out-loud to a class of school-age children in a small town library.

is considered the most talkative sign of the zodiac and those born with
the Moon in Gemini are usually gregarious – that is unless Saturn was
in the Gemini neighborhood too. The planet Saturn tends to restrict the
expression of whatever it comes in contact with.
Were it not for the
conjunction (union) of Saturn with the Moon when he was born,
Bradley would be a chatty guy. His verbal gymnastics would out-slogan
the best media hustlers and provide a stream of clever sound bites.
However, Saturn won’t allow irresponsible chatter.
and careful, Saturn – like the sign Capricorn it rules – is
concerned with consequences! As a result, Bradley retains much of the
mental curiosity of Gemini, but with the volume turned way down.
Adversely this inhibits Bradley’s free emotional expression, but it
also makes for a more responsible attitude and a sense of duty.
Thoughtful instead of witty, Bradley’s Moon Saturn conjunction in
Gemini added an element of mental discipline helpful for a Princeton
student and Rhodes scholar. Yet the conversational urge of Gemini still
plays out – as evidenced by his habit of conversing with strangers.

to get started, this is not the adrenal urge of someone in a hurry.
However, once underway, this position of Mars is noted for steadiness,
dependability and endurance.
As a rookie with the Knicks his first year
was lackluster and to Bradley a great disappointment. Yet, he didn’t
quit. Instead he went on to become one of the most reliable players on
his team. Dogged and determined, Bradley will undoubtedly go the
distance in his quest for the Democratic nomination. Taurus, like Virgo,
is not a very exciting sign. The style of Mars in Taurus is plodding,
but should not be underestimated in terms of endurance and the stubborn
ability to wear down opponents.
