Poor Mitt - he can't seem to keep his foot from staying permanently adhered to his tongue and lips. Blame it on Saturn. Well, actually it is Saturn in the 3rd House retrograde to be exact. A retrograde in your natal chart is a pause for karma. Someone born with a Saturn retrograde has had authority issues in the past. With Saturn in the 3rd we have a pretty good idea that his speech patterns were gloomy, negative and harsh and he was tough on friends and siblings.
He is coming from a Sagittarius South Node which carries the karmic imprint of "I know" - I know all there is to know about most things - I just know. Combine that with Saturn being bossy and negative - you can see there was a bit of unpleasantness about his mannerisms. Let's just say some karmic lessons take longer to learn and Mitt is a bit behind the learning curve on this one. He knows what he knows and he says it consequences be damned.
Conjuncting his retro. Saturn is his retrograde Pluto. Pluto is all about power. With retro. Pluto in the 4th house - Mitt was all about exerting his power in the house and his neighborhood. Can you see the picture emerging? I know what is right for all of you in my sphere - I know how you should live and I am going to make sure you know in spades. In this life he somehow convinced his sickly wife to go through another Presidential campaign. I know what is right for us!
The problem isn't the campaign it is Mitt sure as ever that he knows how to run his little family of campaigners! Until November 11, Neptune, the planet of illusion and delusion, is retrograded. For Mitt this retrograde is in his 10th house - the house of government. No one is going to be able tell him he is screwing up.....
And thank goodness for it!
