On November 6th, 2012 Mitt Romney to his surprise lost the Presidential election to Barack Obama. If Utah Senator had a reliable astrologer on his team, he wouldn’t be that surprised about the election results. The reason why is the Directions for the election day.
Barack’s indications weren’t of the strongest nature but had had quite a few of them: 7/7 formed by Sun-7th House trine (public success, I=public, the public wants what I want); 7/9 (the public’s love gives the status of informal leader); 9/10 (informal leadership brings power); 7/10 (the public gives power).
Mitt’s indicators were modest in comparison with the President’s: 7/9 (the public’s love gives the status of informal leader); Sun-9th House conjunction (success as informal leader); 9/10 (informal leadership brings power). The 1st and 3rd indications are composed of the same aspect – Venus-9th House Square; the strongest aspect (Sun-9th House conjunction) features informal leadership, not the formal top position.
Four years earlier Romney withdrew from the Presidential run and endorsed John McCain. Did McCain have more chances to win the Presidency from the astrology point of view?
Let’s look at the Directions for the 2008 election day.
John’s indicators: two formulas 7/11 (public love gives promotion as a party leader – doesn’t really help with the election itself); 7/7 (public success, I=public, the public wants what I want); 7/10 (the public gives power). No conjunctions; one of the formulas is composed of a square, which can play out both in a negative and positive way depending on the candidate’s energy level. I would say that problems with the campaign financing “vote for” not great energy level.
Barack’s indicators: same as McCain’s 7/7 formula, but composed by Venus-7th House conjunction, the strongest aspect; 7/10 (the public gives power).
Mitt’s indicators included 7/7/ formula as well (not the strongest one). Plus he had 10/10 (career success), and two 7/10 formulas (the public gives power), one of which was composed by Saturn-7th House opposition. This aspect is similar to a square, which can play out both in a negative and positive way depending on the candidate’s energy level. The sources say he had fundraised more than 62 million dollars. Wikipedia states “Romney’s liabilities included having run for senator and serving as governor in one of the nation’s most liberal states and having taken positions in opposition to the party’s conservative base during that time”. These two factors speak for Romney’s good level of energy during the campaign.
I think there are chances that if Mitt wouldn’t end his run before the actual Republican nomination happened, he would win the Presidency. But he decided not to go that far.
