She was selected to became a personal assistant to Hilary Clinton, then deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State and finally  vice chairwoman for Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Jordan Weiner

Anthony Weiner was born on a Friday in Virgo. His INNER ruler is Venus and his OUTER Ruler is Mercury. With the #66 VEN VIR Dayology signature he has the INWARD potential of being a loving individual but OUTWARDLY he may focus on personal imperfections and maintaining standards.  Often males with this signature have personal issues about loving or being loved.

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 OUTWARDLY she is all too aware of social appearances. Huma’s Wednesday Day Ray expresses itself through Mercury and Anthony’s Virgo Sun Sign is ruled by the same planet. Mercury may not express itself as love, but it does create awareness. A sensible working situation is possible if certain Mercury guidelines are followed.

Whatever may happen to Abedin and Weiner, they must care for their child. 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, like his mother, thus he INWARDLY shares a certain mental outlook with her. He is also connected OUTWARDLY to his father through Mercury. This particular energy could work out a set of rules and rituals which have the capacity to heal this uncomfortable rift.

UPDATE – After serving 18 months Anthony Weiner was released from prison early in 2018. That same year he and Abedin withdrew their divorce case from court. After spending several months in a halfway house, it was reported that Weiner moved into a separate unit in Abedin’s apartment building. The news is that Weiner no longer lives at this address and that after writing a very revealing book entitled Both/And: A Memoir:  Huma Abedin has decided to “move on.”
