I almost forgot about Sherrod Brown, Ohio’s Democratic Senator. If Brown cared about this blog (which I’m sure he doesn’t), he would be offended. With a sun in Scorpio and moon in Leo, this is not a person to ignore. Or slight. Or suggest is “only human.” The two fixed signs of Scorpio and Leo are very strong signs, filled with themselves. I have to admit there is probably good reason to think well of yourself with this sun and moon – Brown probably does have the energy of a few people inside one body.
Leo moon needs attention, adoration and respect. Scorpio sun does as well, but would never admit it. My experience of Leo moon is that it is practically insatiable with need for attention. Did I mention that you can’t ignore Brown?
Jupiter is in T-square to the sun and moon, adding to Brown’s strong personality. He is so strong, in fact, that he is excessively stubborn. He will not change ideas quickly, but, if he does, will appear to have held that new view for a lifetime.
Good news for Brown is that American voters love, love, love fixed signs in office. Americans love a politician who holds clear, digestible views and does not waver. If Brown wants to move into national politics, which I’m guessing he does, he will probably find success.
Mars in Capricorn adds yet again to Brown’s strength and ambition, and adds a calculating aspect to his personality. Moon in Leo and sun in Scorpio can be very passionate and loving, but when they’re not, they are as cold as ice floes in the Antarctic. When Brown doesn’t like you, just go away. There is nothing you can do to change the situation.
A relief from this intensity comes from Mercury and Venus in Sagittarius. Brown’s love interests are able to provide him carefree fun and give him a break from his serious mission called “life.” His Venus suggests that his mate is levity where he is gravity.
Brown most likely will get along well with Governor John Kasich who has sun in Taurus and moon in Capricorn. Both have stubborn, dogged persistence although Brown might have more insight into the motivations of others than Kasich does. These two will probably either completely agree or completely disagree with each other – neither will compromise. But they can co-exist well.
Right now transiting Saturn in Capricorn is probably causing Brown some frustration in ideals. It will pass by the end of 2012. As Pluto transits Brown’s natal ambitious Mars in Capricorn 2017-2018, if Brown is thinking national politics, this is when he will strike. The one area of politics in which Brown needs to continually adapt is frustration. It will always be there, others will never agree with you 100 percent, no matter how passionate your beliefs. Brown’s frustration threshold is low and others may not believe the obstacles are as great as Brown believes. Moon in Leo, sun in Scorpio is dramatic. It’s really not that bad.
I look forward to seeing this lion emerge from his den and take on national politics, if that is what he is thinking. Brown’s strength and fortitude will serve him well with the American public.
