Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes him on Twitter: "1966 the year I was born!" [1], "Chicago!!! I was born here" [2], "I was born at St. Joseph's hospital on Lake Shore Drive!" [3], "I'm Libra with Leo Rising and moon in Sagittarius" [4], "I'm Libra 10-10" [5], "It's my birthday today" [posted 10 Oct] [6]. NB: He seems to have mixed up his Moon and ascendant signs. A speculative time of noon gives Sagittarius rising and Leo Moon.
