The First Presidential Debate - Mitt

The first presidential debate will soon be upon us. It will be held October 3, 2012 in Denver Colorado at 7:00 PM local time.

Mitt Romney is still facing a few chart hurdles that have been around for a while. His Neptune is still retrograded in the 10th house, the house of career and government. Neptune will go direct right after Election Day, November 10. Retro, Neptune causes all kinds of confusion and illusion, even more than it normally does. There are no boundaries, no limits - no sense of reality. When it is in your 10th house, you actually believe you can do the things you say you can at work. Mitt is believing the stuff he is saying....really! It is too bad for him few others do. So expect a few more whoopers coming from him debate night.

I think the chance of him downright lying during debate night is increased because Jupiter has just crossed into his 3rd house, the house of communication. Jupiter is all about expansion and growth. In the third house it can make for a golden tongue or a big liar. I am going against the golden tongue option here because Mitt also has natal Saturn in his 3rd. Saturn is all about restriction - the exact opposite of expansive Jupiter. He will never be a silver tongued orator. With progressed ascendant conjuncting Saturn now in his chart, I can't imagine him becoming sparkling and bubbly in speech.

By the way, poor Mitt can't help switching his ideas and words at every turn. Look at his natal first house. He has Uranus in the 1st in Gemini. Uranus is the quick change artist, the quirky, changeable planet. He could try to come  with a new improved Mitt. Gemini is the communicator - how can he keep his stories straight? But with his Sun conjunction Saturn in his 5th - the house of creativity and play - he is still going to be old Mitt in a new jacket.

Next time - President Obama on debate night.

For Mitt - It is Those Dang Retrogrades

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!

Bill's Speech

I am laughing because, like with the Republican Convention, I should have looked at other people on the speaker schedule. For the GOP it should have been Clint Eastwood and for the Dems., Bill Clinton.

We, of course, know about his incredible charisma -- look at all of those planets in his natal first house, including Venus and Mars! However, what was "cooking" the night of his incredible speech before the Convention? Look at his progressed chart (the middle chart). A progressed chart is simply showing how the planets have progressed from the natal position in a person's life.

In his third house, the house of communications, he currently has his ascendant, Mars, Neptune, Venus transiting and Jupiter and Juno are closely connected to those planets. His ascendant, how he projects, his energy, Mars, his ability to dream, Neptune and his Venus, the beauty and elegance planet are all there in his house of communication! With Jupiter there - the ability to be expansive - and reach people and Juno his loyalty asteroid there how could he not have been effective in reaching people with his words.

Fortunately, he also has Saturn progressed in his first and transiting his first giving him the ability to concentrate and focus - something he well not always has!

POTUS Speech - Fire....

The President is going to have to make a dynamite speech to keep up with his wife and the stars are in his favor. His third house, the house of communication, is now inhabited by his progressed Pallas and Juno. Pallas was the warrior goddess, the fighter for those who can't fight for themselves, and Juno was the goddess of fierce loyalty. Also in his third house is his transiting ascendant. His speech is going to be one were he will show just how well he connects with and believes in people who need to be -but have a hard time - being heard. It will take one qualities of a preacher more than a politician. Because these are in the sign of Taurus, which is all about stability, expect him to stress ideas of the social safety net.

Expect some fire because transiting Mars is conjunct his progressed Mars in the 9th. The 9th house, remember, is the house of spiritual searching. As I said, expect a fiery preacher-like speech. One that will set the convention hall, and hopefully those  beyond, on fire. Mars is in Scorpio, a very spiritual sign. 

Frankly this is a good time for alot of people to be making speeches, because the Sun is currently conjunct Mercury. That is a traditional placement for charisma and the ability to sway people with your words. For the President, this conjunction is in the 7th house, the house of intimate relations with others. His words will seem personal.

Speaking of the 7th, as I mentioned in a previous election day post, the President will have a lot of feminine energy there with his progressed Venus moving through. When he makes his Convention speech, there will be an extra dab of benefit because his Part of Fortune, that little karmic smile, will be right on his progressed Venus. As I said before, his appeal to women will be key, key, key to his success.

The one thing I hate to see and I even hate to put it out there in some way. However, in his 2nd house, the house of stability, safety and security, he has both retrograded Uranus,the quick change artist and retrograded Pallas transiting through. As I said before, Pallas is the warrior who takes up causes. This is a very dangerous time for the President I am so afraid to say. I have been saying to my friends that I believe he is going to win - and win bigger than the talking heads claim, but that this will trigger the lunatic fringe. 

We all need to be putting positive energy his way to thwart any hateful acts...until these two get out of his 2nd which will be well after election day.
