The asteroids can help verify her exact birth time. Hillary Rodham first entered the national spotlight when she was the first student in Welleseley College history chosen to deliver the commencement address. Her speech received a standing ovation that lasted for seven minutes, and because it had criticized Republican Senator Edward Brooke (who made his remarks just before her), the speech received national attention, including a photo-essay in Life magazine.
At the time, her progressed Midheaven (using the 8:02 am birth time) was at 26º Virgo, where it formed an exact sextile to her Vesta, the symbol for her scholarly achievements. The progressed Midheaven here is also just past the square to Uranus, reflecting the controversy she sparked. The immense popularity and honor that arrived at that time can be seen in her progressed Venus at 4º30' Cancer, which formed an exact sextile (orb: 0º05') to her Midheaven. This event alone makes 8:02 am look good. One might note that, in addition, transiting Venus, Jupiter, and Neptune were all forming exact hits to her Vesta on that day, while transiting Saturn was trine her Midheaven (orb: 0º40').
Hillary Rodham married Bill Clinton on October 11, 1975 when transiting Venus was exactly conjunct her Midheaven and the transiting North Node was conjunct her Ascendant (orb: 0º37'). Considering the secondary progressions, her progressed Venus was exactly trine her Saturn (orb 0º12'), which is the most elevated planet in her chart. Her progressed Midheaven forms a quincunx to Ceres, as her progressed Ascendant is exactly trine her fifth house Fortuna (or Part of Fortune), and her progressed Fortuna is conjunct natal Fortuna. These connections hint that marriage was the predecessor for having children, or at least one child.
Chelsea Clinton was born on February 27, 1980 when a transiting Mars-Jupiter conjunction was right on Hillary's Midheaven at 4º Virgo. Mars at 4º35' Virgo was exactly, to-the-minute conjunct her Midheaven. By secondary progression, her progressed Midheaven and progressed Jupiter were exactly sextile (orb: 0º28'). The progressed Sun was forming an exact square to her Midheaven, which at the time of Chelsea's birth was only 0º14' past exact.
By the time Bill Clinton was elected President in 1992, Hillary's progressed Mars was nearing her Midheaven and her progressed Mercury was squaring her Midheaven. The inauguration ceremony on January 20, 1993 officially made Hillary Rodham Clinton the nation's First Lady, but with her progressed Mars near the Midheaven, she would naturally be an active, assertive influence in the political arena. Days after the inauguration, on January 25, she was appointed to head the task force for health care reform, which she undertook as her progressed Midheaven formed a sextile to her Saturn.
On November 7, 2000, Hillary defeated Rick Lazio to become the elected Senator from New York, and was sworn in two months later when her progressed Moon was exactly opposite her Midheaven. By this time her progressed Mars had crossed her Midheaven, and was now at 5º04' Virgo. Her tenure as First Lady had been filled with conflict, both personal and political. This state of affairs was readily reflected by her progressed Mars going over her Midheaven. The precise hits to and from Hillary's Midheaven during her life's most important events confirm a birth time of 8:02 am.
