Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes her in "Astrology in medicine? The star charts don’t lie" by Bidisha, The Guardian, 28 July 2014: "like my soul twin Barack Obama, who luckily for him has the same sun, rising and moon signs as me."

A speculative time of 9:10pm gives mid Aquarius (15 degrees) rising (which is also Obama's rising sign).
