Watching the Republican presidential candidate run up, I’ve been wondering, “Where are the Capricorns?” You’d think the Grand Old Party would hatch lots of Capricorns, the zodiac’s most reverent advocates of Authority.
While perusing Republican senators and governors for the Ohio Astrology Republican Pick, which, by the way, is John Cornyn, I came across few Capricorns. With Pluto transiting Capricorn, most are probably picking up the pieces of a life transformed.
There is one declared candidate with sun in Capricorn – Gary Johnson. I’ll take a look at his chart and the additional chart I haven’t peeked at, Buddy Roemer.
Johnson has sun in Capricorn and moon in late Cancer or early Leo. That moon placement makes a difference in this chart. Moon in Cancer means Johnson has a T-square of sun (in Capricorn), moon and Uranus (in Cancer) and Saturn and Neptune (in Libra).
Moon in Cancer would mean 50% of Johnson’s planets are in cardinal signs. Cardinal is motivated, pushy and bossy. Too much cardinal can be recognized easily. You and the cardinal sign go to the department bake sale. You say you are going to buy a cookie. The cardinal sign elbows you and says, “No, buy the brownie.”
The cardinal sign will walk into your house and try to change something immediately. Even before the hug, you will hear, “You should put a painting on that bare wall.”
If Johnson has a Leo moon, he might be more composed, picking his battles carefully and not so argumentative. Capricorn and Leo together are a forceful combination. The Leo would make him more regal and the Cancer more nervous.
Ohio Astrology Assessment: Definitely need more information on this one. If you have Johnson’s time of birth, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Johnson is probably too nervous and jittery for the job. Also, Pluto is transiting Capricorn so there are probably relationship issues that need to be resolved before walking in the glare of the spotlight.
Roemer reminds me of Newt Gingrich and Herman Cain – he’s probably jumped in the ring for FUN. Now that I think more about it, some probably run for president not because they think they will succeed, but because the gumption of doing it opens up other possibilities. Maybe Gingrich, Cain and Roemer can create a new Vegas casino complex. Cain can run it, Roemer can promote it and Gingrich can play craps in it.
Roemer has sun and Neptune in Libra and moon in Sagittarius. Uranus, Mars and Saturn are in Gemini. Pluto and Jupiter are in Leo. Mercury and Venus are in Virgo. There are zero (0) planets in water signs.
This is a man who wears Rose Colored Glasses, has an extraordinarily detailed memory and the ability to rationalize away any piece of information at any time. This clever one should be a lawyer.
Libra and Gemini are both signs that indicate choice and duality. That Roemer switched parties shows that he thinks about both sides of an issue. The question is whether he ever lands or is one of those types in constant confusion. To me, chronic confusion is a condition just like those described in prescription drug commercials. If Roemer were to have one of today’s illnesses, it would probably be attention deficit disorder.
Ohio Astrology Assessment: Inconsistent personality. Super intelligent confusion does not bode well in American politics. Alternate career suggestions: 1) pundit, 2) Entertainment Mogul or 3) Proofreader.
