I kind of hate to say it but the stars don't look too bad for Mitt Romney for his speech before the RNC Convention.
He does have transiting Venus conjunct his progressed Ascendant in the 3rd house, the house of communication. The biggest problem he has is that he was born with retrograded Saturn in the 3rd house. That is just a karmic speech problem if you will and why he appears so tortured in public. So he will do as well as he possibly can.
His big problem is transiting retrograde Chiron and Neptune conjuncting his Moon in the 10th house - the house of our social status and our careers. All of this brings an air of unreality, an inability to connect emotions. He will deliver a nice, automated speech devoid of belief and feeling oh yes and facts. Neptune Moon adds a huge air of deception to what he will be saying.
With Uranus and Mercury being close he might actually slip and say something he believes. I doubt it - it is all too scripted. Well we can only hope.
