Well, I think it might be time to take a look at Mr. Romney’s chart. After what is being billed as “Romney’s Hell Week” — now turning into “Hell Ten Days” as I write this — it would be most instructive to check the astrological aspects that are in effect in his natal chart (click here for the chart). As usual, I'll bold my conclusions, so those who are not interested in the astrological details can cut to the chase.
There are a number of astrological approaches one can take to understand and predict current and future events in a person’s life. I mostly use secondary progressions, solar arc directions, and transits to the natal chart. I sit up and pay close attention when more than one of those areas are suggesting essentially the same thing.
Let’s look at what’s been going on in Mr. Romney’s chart over the past couple of weeks and what will happen between now and the election.
We’ll begin at the end of August, with the last Full Moon. Recall that the Full Moon generally is influential over the following two weeks — until the next New Moon. This Full Moon conjuncted Romney’s natal Mars, and in the chart of the Full Moon, Mars is squaring Romney’s Midheaven/IC axis. Mars rules, among other things, conflict, arguments, and impulsiveness. The Midheaven is one’s public presentation, as well as the career. Two days before the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, transiting Mars squared Romney’s Pluto, which co-rules his 6th house of public service, and the day before, his progressed Moon opposed his natal Neptune. Neptune is the dispositor* of his natal Mars, Mercury and the Sun.
