Energy Signatures of Presidents

Feb 17, 2022

Once you can recognize Energy Signatures you will not only understand people better, you will see commonalities within professions. And that includes Presidents!

Here’s a brief description of how to identify energy types based on physical appearance, and the gifts of each type (everybody has 3 types in their Energy Signature.)

Let’s get started!

ROYAL
Physical attributes- symmetrical and fit, well defined facial features
PROS - organized, productive and detail oriented

WARRIOR
Physical attributes- broad shoulders, charismatic eyes
PROS – bold leadership, big picture thinkers, altruistic

GARDENER
Physical attributes - square torso, compact build
PROS - big-hearted, service-oriented and hard-working

PRIEST
Physical attributes - long and lanky, shoulder/hip higher on one side
PROS - creative idea people, quick-witted, spiritual

LOVER
Physical attributes - prominent eyes/lips, soft voice, sloped shoulders
PROS - nurturing, highly sensitive and tuned into others

Can you guess what types are consistently prominent in a “Presidential” Energy Signature?

If you guessed WARRIOR, ROYAL, and GARDENER, you’re right-
Leadership, vision, and the ability to produce results!

Here’s a group of recent former Presidents; notice the broad shoulders (Warrior) and either a symmetrical frame (Royal) or more square torso (Gardener). Presidents are usually Warrior-Royal or Warrior-Gardener.

The differences are all about the third type in their Energy Signature.

Do you notice that Obama and the Bushes have some of that lean to one side left/right imbalance of the Priest? These Warrior-Royal-Priest Presidents all had a spiritual/religious orientation. People believed in them. 

  • The elder Bush felt a strong moral imperative in his governing (the 1st Iraq war, a “thousand points of light”)
  • George W. Bush embodied a right-wing religious mandate
  • Obama had a spiritual aura that inspired idealism and hope

It is interesting to note that in an age where many are defining themselves as “spiritual, not religious” we look increasingly to our nation’s leaders to provide that moral guidance. 

In another time, Abe Lincoln was also an idealistic Warrior-Royal-Priest who led the country to become a more just and humanitarian society.  He’s a good example of a persuasive leader of men, with the wisdom to see into the future…. and the organization and attention to detail to make that vision a reality!

Reagan had the Priest type in his Signature too; his idealism was embodied in the concepts of less government and more freedom (which resulted in deregulation.) His policies are partially credited with the end of the Cold War and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Clinton and Carter both have the more square, compact torso of the Gardener shape. They are beloved; the Warrior-Gardener combo means they are generous and extroverted people pleasers, who sometimes struggle with boundary issues.  Other well-loved Presidents with Gardener in their Energy Signature are John. F. Kennedy and the two Roosevelts.

They were emotionally connected – the difference between a Priest and a Gardener. They initiated aspirational, broad based, empathetic social goals.

  •  “Teddy” Roosevelt was a father of the conservation movement, regulated food and drugs, fought corruption and envisioned a United Nations
  • Roosevelt (FDR) ushered in the New Deal, Social Security and a minimum wage; he was so loved he served four terms
  • Kennedy (JFK) defined a new era of optimism with the Moon landing, Civil Rights legislation and creating the Peace Corps


Let’s talk about an outlier – Jimmy Carter. His larger lips, penetrating eyes and soft voice all indicate Lover, making him a Royal-Gardener-Lover.  Without the Warrior component, he doesn’t fit the classic Presidential mold. That meant although he was astute and capable, he was also more sensitive to the welfare of others –creating the perception of being soft and indecisive. In the Iran hostage controversy, although he got everyone out safe (and without starting a war!) he was criticized for his handing of it and was not nominated for a second term.

History has yet to judge Presidents #45 and #46, although their Energy Signatures are clear! Willing to venture a guess? Email your response to [email protected] and I’ll send you a complete analysis of those two!
