Roger Ailes was born on May 15, 1940 at 11:21 am in Warren, Ohio. He was a hemophiliac (look at the septiles below) and is best known for his Emmy-awarded TV production before moving into the political consulting. He is credited with the orchestra pit theory of news-making .
If you have two guys on a stage and one guy says, “I have a solution to the Middle East problem,” and the other guy falls into the orchestra pit, well who do you think is going to be on the evening news?Roger Ailes
- Roger is a lipped (Jupiter in the 9th) bowl.
- His ascendant is 18 Leo 12. Marc Jones and Alan Leo round this up to 19 Leo, giving him the symbol of “An instructor in a chemistry class conducting an experiment.” The keyword is Service.
- He has a preponderance of Septiles.
- He has a preponderance in Taurus in the 10th house of aspirations.
- As he has no oppositions in his chart, correspondingly he has a high amount of squares (9).
- He has an interesting yod with the head at his Part of Fortune 15 Scorpio 46 and sustained by his Jupiter (in the ninth where it rules) and Mars (in the eleventh) making him an ambitious driven man.
- His ninth house is highly accentuated in his chart ( it is in its rulership, it is his lip, and part of his youd) showing publication and dissemination of information (news) was a major driver in his life.
Roger died on May 18, 2017 in Palm Beach Florida from a heart attack aggravated by his hemophilia. His wife Elizabeth, and son Zachary survive him.
