Virginia Thomas, the vocal right-wing wife of Supreme Court judge Clarence Thomas is coming under increasing scrutiny as the Supreme Court plummets to its lowest level ever approval rating over a perception that it is becoming overly politicized. She is working with many groups directly involved in controversial cases on abortion, affirmative action, and gun rights amongst other before the Court. She is a Trump supporter and has declared that America is in existential danger because of the “deep state” and the “fascist left,” which includes “transsexual fascists.” She was vocal on social media prior to January 6th praising those who were ‘standing up’ but removed the posts immediately after.
Stephen Gillers, a law professor at N.Y.U. and a prominent judicial ethicist said, “I think Ginni Thomas is behaving horribly, and she’s hurt the Supreme Court and the administration of justice.’
She was born 23 February 1957 in Omaha, Nebraska into a family known for its extreme views; and after graduating law she fell in with a cultish self-help group, Lifespring. She and Thomas married in 1987. ‘As a woman clashing with the women’s movement, she had found much in common with Thomas, who opposed causes supported by many Black Americans.’
Jane Mayer has an exhaustively researched piece on her in the New Yorker, January 21 2022.
Virginia is a Sun Pisces trine Neptune which fits well with Clarence’s Cancer Sun, Mercury, Venus square Neptune. What is less obvious is how they survive her bulldozer Mars in Taurus which falls conjunct his IC, making their domestic life a noisy affair, and worse squares his Saturn Pluto in his 7th. Mind you with Saturn Pluto in his 7th he was bound to be attracted to a hard, warrior partner.
Their relationship chart does have an affectionate Sun Venus conjunction with Venus trine Pluto and Sun opposition Jupiter – so there would an attraction. But there is also an explosive composite Uranus Mars square Saturn Neptune which looks highly uncomfortable and prone to blow fuses.
The good feelings between them are looking a touch deflated at the moment perhaps because of the New Yorker piece; there will be major jolts, in his case, relating to his partner, making them emotionally conflicted over the next two years. She’ll be rattled badly from June onwards with tr Uranus conjunct her Mars.
Her relations with Chief Justice John Roberts are difficult at best and running into turbulent times from this month onwards, worsening dramatically in 2023. Her relationship chart with SCOTUS points to the same conclusion with major confusion in 2022/23 and complete disruption come 2023/24.
Clarence Thomas will stay reasonably upbeat in 2022/23 but he’s sliding into a less successful, less visible phase of his life/career which will become increasingly obvious from 2023 onwards.
