What Is Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Zodiac Sign?

Devoted, dauntless, and always divisive, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, or AOC, is a democratic politician who long ago transcended the typical popularity of a political figure. Though she is constantly in the news for her political endeavors — like being arrested at a protest or criticizing the leadership of senior democrats – the congresswoman has exploded in mainstream pop culture since becoming New York's 14th congressional district representative in 2019.

Per GQ, the congresswoman's liberal platform and grassroots origin have cemented her as a generational voice. It's this generation that, as mentioned by Time, makes up her massive Twitter following and keeps up with her everyday moves through Instagram Lives.

With such notoriety, it's no surprise that the internet effectively obtained AOC's birth time to break down her astrological birth chart. According to Allure, one Twitter user actually emailed the congresswoman's staff with a birth time inquiry. With that information now obtained, the public can analyze not only AOC's zodiac sign but her entire birth chart.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's sun sign is Libra

Born on October 13, 1989, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's zodiac sign is Libra. Libra is the seventh sign of the zodiac and is represented by the scales of justice (per Allure). This iconography is fitting as, according to Astrology Zodiac Signs, Libras are all about diplomacy, peace, and justice.

As an air sign, Libras are known for their intellectuality, which translates into an appreciation for challenging conversations and a desire for mental stimulation. Because they are ruled by Venus, the planet of money, love, and beauty, this sign is also associated with high art and materialism.

With these Libra qualities in mind, it makes sense that AOC has devoted her life to public service. A prime example of the congresswoman's commitment to justice is her continual interest in environmental issues. Her earliest piece of legislation was the proposed Green New Deal resolution, which is a 10-year plan meant to address issues of air and water pollution, climate change, and economic infrastructure among others.

AOC's birth chart reveals a combo of fire and air signs

For those unfamiliar, a birth chart uses an individual's birthplace and time to create a map of celestial bodies at the exact moment of the person's birth (via New York Post). This provides a more in-depth look at an individual's personality beyond their primary star sign, which is known as the sun sign. While a person's sun sign is one of the key elements of their birth chart, their moon sign and rising sign, or ascendant, are also very telling.

Using her birth chart, Allure found that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's moon sign is Aries while her rising sign is Sagittarius. Both of these are fire signs, making her core planets a dynamic combination of fire and air signs. Astroyogi explains that Aries moons are idealistic, dedicated, and fast-moving, while Sagittarius risings are optimistic, goal-oriented, and outspoken.

This combo provides AOC with a passionate, idea-driven nature, something that is often reflected in her political moves. She has been an outspoken supporter and participant of informed political discourse and on-the-ground movements, having remarked to GQ, "I have always felt that the true power, and true power in the United States, relies in mass movements and social movements."
