Homosexual Male Journalist
July 2, 2012: Now Identified as Anderson Cooper

This chart was originally done as an appendix to the paper on a female heterosexual twin and her brother, who was homosexual. At that time, Cooper had not officially come out as a gay man. As of today's date (above), he has. Here is his pertinent partial chart demonstrating his homosexual preference:

Anderson Cooper
Partial Harmonic Chart for the 7th House

Placidus: c1113Pis, c1224Ari, c224Gem, c314Can b111Leo, b121Vir, b222Lib, b324Sco

Set (1) above, his homosexual set, shows SN/Asc/mars/neptune in c 5th house. The distance between the Asc and neptune is 7 degrees, but the node, with an orb of 5, falls in their middle, connecting them. So the mars in the set is "on an Angle" and in a 5th house, fulfilling the second requirement for the astrology of homosexuality.

Set (2) shows an all-charts (it contains no harmonics) golden benefic (see main paper for explanation) which influences 1st, 2nd, 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th houses, idntifying him as wildly successful (10th) and rich (2nd and 8th house). The conjunction of venus to jupiter also falls in c 2nd house.
