Jacinda Ardern told the United Nations via telecast that free speech online to “weapons of war” . Critics have damned her as an authoritarian dictator. In her defence, Ardern said
“After all, how do you successfully end a war if people are led to believe the reason for its existence is not only legal but noble? How do you tackle climate change if people do not believe it exists? How do you ensure the human rights of others are upheld, when they are subjected to hateful and dangerous rhetoric and ideology?” she asked.

Ardern was born in Hamilton, New Zealand and raised Mormon but has left the Church over gay marriage. She has been in a relationship with Kimi talking head Clarke Gaylord for almost ten years. The chart below is not fully rectified i.e. against any progressions because experience has taught me, living active politicians are good at hiding details. This one seems to work giving her a 06 Virgo 39 Ascendant. The Hyperion symbol for 07 Virgo is “Trees in the distance near a mosque” and suggests her ability to be a forerunner or what will soon be common or established wisdom.
There maybe some truth to that with her Black Moon Lilith trine her Galactic Sun — it’s a powerful combination and possibly a feint on behalf of the United Nations to get that idea across from someone from a small but popular country, New Zealand. Watch if this develops from outrage to something in her favour (Venus conjunct her Midheaven and that a semi-sextile away from Mercury on the eleventh house cusp.).
Her planetary pattern is a Bucket with a Venus Handle laying right next to her Midheaven but in the administrative ninth house. Her whole chart lies on the western side except for Venus meaning that she uses her resources, heavily, to obtain her goals with the Venus making her charming when she needs. That does not belie the cold calculating Moon below, but it seems most do not see it until Jacinta has gotten what she wanted and can move ahead with her plans.
She has a good preponderance in the first house, thanks to Lilith giving her a lot of arrogance in her speech and actions. Jupiter is conjunct her Ascendant in this chart in the twelfth house showing she does have some hidden backing and it is sextile her Mercury again giving her support particularly as it is opposite that very Capricorn Moon found in its detriment but in its rulership in the fourth making her cold and distant from those around her. That make sense as it is the women in her family that are the most political, see the little bio from her Candidate Survey.
Jacinda has cited her nana and Helen Clark as her political role models. Jacinda says Ms Clark’s work made her proud to be part of the Labour party, while her nana Gladys was the “true political beast” of the family and a staunch Labour advocate.
Notes: Originally the chart was based in the South Island. This corrected one is for Hamilton in the North Island. October 7, 2022.
