Megyn Kelly, previously the Kelly File, on the cable network FoxNews, had a major run in with Presidential candidate Donald Trump. When asked if this was “political” attack, she said No, but I did not agree, so I did her chart. I am not sure why I bothered, for while she claims her political slant is “independent“, like most talking heads, it would be better to phrase it as “opportunistic.”
Ms. Kelly has been married twice. The first time to a Daniel Kendall, M.D. The divorce was acrimonious and ended in 2006 with him claiming Megyn did not want a husband but a “role reversal.” Her second marriage to Cybersecurity analyst turned writer, Douglas Brunt, has been far more successful with three children, 2 boys, and a girl. Megyn is a graduate of the Albany Law School and is half Italian and Irish.Read more
Where were you born?
Astro.com says that Megyn was born in Syracuse. Wikipedia OTOH says Champaign Illinois. We did the charts for both and found the Illinois birthplace implausible, so we are going with the Syracuse one. It makes more sense all around as all her schooling is in New York State, and her father, Edward Kelly taught at SUNY.

Ms. Kelly is a bucket temperament type with a Saturn handle in her fifth house of creativity & speculation. Saturn is the protector of the zodiac at nineteen Taurus, & as her handle creates the symbol of a “Newly formed continent, ” suggesting the raw substance of existence and that her experience shapes and develops her character more than her education. He allows her to see opportunities that others miss and gives her the revolutionary potential to recreate her image and her environs.
But this handle is under stress from the very benevolent Jupiter that also constituents the Line of Personality that makes her gravitate towards hubbub of turmoil and upset, and explains why she attacked candidate Donald Trump to such a great deal — she loves the attention.
Jupiter at 18.34 Scorpio is rather accurate for an interviewer, “A parrot listening and then talking.” Dr. Jones writes this gives her the inherent sensitivity to reworking reality in the service of her own “personal aspirations,” and with not T-Cross to allow for a fuller expression, it forces to recreate herself and her career almost chameleon-like.
Her Midheaven at 20.15 Libra is conjunct, within two degrees, to fiercely ambitious Mars at 18.31 Libra. Here found in her ninth house of travels, writing and long distance communications, it suggests that she has had many disruptive moves as she directs her consciousness towards her new visions. Mars has the symbol is a “gang of robbers in hiding” emphasizing her need to express her personal freedom, a vital ingredient in her various transformations and supports her first husband’s comments about her wanting a role reversal marriage. Luckily, her second husband, Douglas Brunt, found a second career as a writer that would tolerate that.
With a stellium of planets in her ninth house, Ms. Kelly has a Rolodex to die for. She is networked, connected to everyone. She swaps business cards immediately upon meeting someone, and then dutifully keeps in touch so that the connection does not go stale.
Her Sun at twenty-six Scorpio is square as her Part of Fortune, the symbol of Indians making Camp, encourages that, as she makes the least promising situations turn around to her benefit. There is no doubt, Ms. Kelly is a hard worker.
That Part of Fortune is found in her intercepted eighth house, so she also spends a lot of time making it look good and effortless. The changes in makeup, hairstyle, clothing, and networks are all part of her desire to run up a significant image and bank account, eventually allowing her to write her own ticket. Ms. Kelly’s Midheaven at twenty-one Libra is probably a run in the political arena as it has the symbol of a “Crowd gathering on a beach” to hear important revelations. Watch her pick up the Hillary Clinton mantle in the next ten years.
What’s your Line?
Ms. Kelly’s Line of Vitality 1 is squared. This aspect is determined by the aspect between the Sun and Moon. Dr. Jones says that this native uses her physical energy to focus her will and the houses where the planets reside are those where she put the most effort into.
For her, this is the eighth house of legacies and the eleventh house of networking and friends. She feels strongly about impressing her personality upon the sphere in which she operates & needs to be a high-profile person on television, as well as traditional & social media. As she is exerting her physical will here, she will work tirelessly for that to happen.
Her Line of Personality, the aspect between Jupiter and Saturn, has an opposition. Her Saturn is also her High Focus planet, and this point agrees with the Line of Vitality about her conscious decision for her personal place in the scheme of things.
Her Line of Culture, sextile Uranus, and Neptune is the third of the four lines that Dr. Jones created. This aspect as these are outer planets happen generationally and tend to define age groups, so the houses are more important than the character itself. For Kelly, Neptune at 1 degree Sagittarius, tells she appreciates her family, both past, and present, in supporting her. Her eldest son named after her late father, Edward Kelly, as well as her on-air mentioning of her children and spouse are examples.
Ms. Kelly has the final Line of Efficiency as well. This is not common, and we have noted in our studies that those who tend to be a bit more self-centered than the general populace. For her, that Line, determined by Mars and Venus, is sextiled. We find the two planets in the ninth and eleventh houses suggesting that moving and being nimble-footed is part of the desire for success. She may be at NBC New York now, but like many other of her moves, she will be elsewhere in the future when opportunity strikes.
