What happens when a person in a committed relationship has serious issues that he or she cannot resolve? What is left for the partner to do?
This is the situation of Anthony Weiner and Huma Abedin find themselves. They married in 2010 right while they both were on their way to become political activists. Weiner, after earning a B.A. in political science had served on the New York City Counsel and as a congressional aid to US Representative Chuck Schumer. From there he was elected US Representative of New York’s 9th Congressional district. Huma began her political career in 1996 working as a White House intern. She quickly became a personal assistant to Hilary Clinton, then a deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State and finally vice chairwoman for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Weiner’s personal difficulties came out into the open in May 2011 when he accidentally tweeted a sexually explicit photograph of himself. His surprised response was that his email account had been hacked, but two weeks later Weiner he came clean. As more women appeared with similar photos, Weiner was pressured into resigning from the Congress. Hoping that he could be given a second chance, Weiner ran for Mayor of New York City in 2013. His campaign was derailed when a second set of sexting messages sent under the alias “Carlos Danger” came forward.
It was reported that Huma wanted to separate from her husband, but she ended up trying to patch up things up. For some time she rationalized that Weiner had never had an actual affair or physical contact with any of his online contacts. Huma filed for divorce this May on the same day as her husband pleaded guilty to sexting with a 15-year old girl. With this particular offense, Weiner must register as a sex offender as part of his plea deal with the Manhattan US attorney. He is scheduled to be sentenced this September 8th and expects to serve to 27 months behind bars for sexting with the North Carolina teen.
Let’s see what Dayology can reveal about this currently shattered couple. Anthony Weiner was born on a Friday in Virgo. His inner ruler is Venus and his Outer Ruler is Mercury. Inwardly he is a loving person but outwardly he has some issues regarding his personal imperfections. Huma Abedin was born on a Wednesday in Leo. Her Inner Ruler is Mercury and her Outer Ruler is the Sun. Inwardly she is very bright and outward her goodhearted personality is all too aware of social appearances. The fact that Mercury acts as the ruler of Wednesday and Virgo means that these two individuals sense an innate resonance between her Inner Self and his Outer Self.
Whatever may happen in years to come for Anthony and Huma, their child is one of their irrevocable bonds. Jordan is outwardly a Sagittarius who should be able to bounce his way through what is to come. He was also born on a Wednesday as was his mother, and thus shares an intellectual outlook with her. And beautifully the Inner Mercury rulers of Huma and Jordan will have the capacity to understand and support Weiner’s recovery as far as he is able to go. Let’s hope it is all the way!
