Gun-control advocate James Brady, who famously was shot during a 1981 assassination attempt on then-president Ronald Reagan while serving as his press secretary, died Monday of undisclosed cause. He was 73.
Born Aug. 29, 1940, at 7:05 pm CST in Centralia, Illinois, Brady’s natal chart is rich with indicators that his would be a life of service. Although he oriented his early career on public service through politics, it was not until a bullet to the head (intended for Reagan) nearly took his life and left him permanently disabled that he found his mission in life — in truly Chirotic form.
Following his recovery, Brady (along with his wife, Sarah, who eventually chaired the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence) lobbied for stricter handgun and assault weapon restrictions. The Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act, also known as “the Brady Bill,” was signed into law by President Clinton in 1993; in 2000, the White House named its press briefing room after him.
As mentioned, Brady’s natal chart is rich. First up is Brady’s Mercury-Sun-Mars conjunction in Virgo in the 6th hours. Note that the Sun and Mars are exact within 6 arc minutes. Brady’s entire self-concept was about service, that service came with a message, and that message was about service — and Mars ensured he would be motivated enough not only to get the message out there, but to take tangible steps in making change happen.
