Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s date of birth is June 25, 1954
Her Five Element composition (excluding her rising sign, as I don’t know her time of birth) is 2 Water, 2 Fire, 1 Wood, 1 Metal. The spine of her astrology is 2 Water Element, so she is actually a very sensitive person inside that professional appearance. People that know her directly like her and find her approachable.
Judge Sotomayor was born in the year of the Horse that, in relation to the current Year of the Ox (from 2/4/09 to 2/3/10) is in a “Destructive Cycle”, therefore, all the ridiculous attacks due to her nomination are inevitable. If she can manage her sensitivity (an attribute of her strong Water Element) and not take things personally, she can ride over any dirty politics that is being thrown her way. In the end, she will endure and be confirmed.
The reason I say this is that her strong Water Element influence in the spine of her Chinese Astrology is two Water Element together, this means she has what it takes to soften the challenge of this Double Earth Element cycle of Ox that is weighing most people down. Soil (Earth Energy) can become fertile because of her intense Water Element. From this auspicious Element relationship, she can improve the Latino relations within the core power structure of the political system.
In this Lunar cycle, she is meant to experience promotion and raise because “Helpful People” is in her chart. By the next half of this Lunar cycle, in August, her network and new expansion may already have taken shape. Her potential will lead her to a new stage with even greater fame and fortune.
If she can stay calm with a humble and modest image as a hard working woman doing her best one day at a time, one step at a time, soon, her critics will lose the momentum of their attacks. My advice to her is to stay graceful, collected and professional; the title of Supreme Court Justice Sotomayor is within reach.
As part of my Feng Shui Five Elements analysis, Judge Sotomayor should wear conservative earth tone colors, like gray and beige when making public appearance along with makeup of an earthy tone. Accent with brown and green of the Wood Element. Avoid sharp colors of the Fire Element, such as red, pink or purple. Dress more people-oriented than commanding. Let the solid, strong, compassionate, tolerance, understanding side of her come through by being modest/humble. The wind would stay on her back.
