The April 3 primary wins and endorsements by the behemoths of the Republican Party clearly indicate that Mitt Romney will be the Republican Presidential candidate in this November’s general election.
Now the fun begins as Romney decides who to take to the prom. Vetting vice presidential candidates is time-consuming and takes precious energy away from attacking Obama’s health care reform. Ohio Astrology would like, as usual, to help where it can by vetting some candidates.
Astrological vetting, of course.
Is there any other way?
Rubio is sun in Gemini and moon in Cancer or Leo.
If the moon is in Cancer, the first image that comes to mind is of an emotional and changeable individual. Rubio is both the silliest and most fun companion you could have and also the most moody one.
Catch him on a good day and he’ll jump in the car and join you for a day of hooky to watch a baseball game. Catch him on a bad day and . . . you probably won’t find him. You called and he said he’d be there, but when you arrived he wasn’t around.
Cancer hides and Gemini avoids entrapment, especially entrapment by boring activity.
My first impression gave me a hint of someone else. Now who is it?
Ah, there’s famous politician who has sun in Cancer and moon in Gemini, also a changeable and moody combination. And who is that person?
Rubio and George Romney are born 64 years apart so do not share many outer planet aspects. For Romney Rubio’s moodiness won’t seem as extreme as George Romney’s moodiness.
If moon is in Leo, we still have a fun-loving and somewhat irresponsible individual, but with a little less changeableness and more desire for life to be pure fun. Moon in Leo does not get hurt feelings like moon in Cancer but must always, and I mean always, be the center of attention.
Sun in Gemini and moon in Leo is one show off.
Now onward to Rubio’s Venus, Mercury and Saturn in Taurus. Mucho Taurus equals mucho concern with dinero (money). Saturn in Taurus represents an individual who grew up feeling a lack of material resources. Venus in Taurus loves finery so there is a great desire for beautiful objects (including of the person sort).
Romney, the person and the political candidate, clearly has mucho, mucho dinero and that might be a great appeal to Rubio. Even if political money is not for personal use, it will feel good to Rubio to roll in piles of cash. With Jupiter transiting Taurus right now, cash is probably coming Rubio’s way without the nomination.
If Rubio does become Veep, he might be advised to be careful with the coffers.
Rubio’s Mars in Aquarius is conjunct Romney’s Venus. Romney is very, very attractive to Rubio. Attractive in the political sense is probably attraction to the power and the money (yes, I mentioned money again).
Rubio is at the tail end of the Pluto in Virgo generation (who has Uranus in Libra). Rubio’s Pluto is opposite Romney’s sun indicating that Rubio will be the critical partner in any relationship with Romney. Rubio will be demanding.
Jupiter and Neptune conjunct in Sagittarius in Rubio’s chart, opposite sun in Gemini, speaks to more changeability of the Newt Gingrich sort. Rubio is one to see something shiny in the distance, drop his corn-on-cob, leave the picnic and run to see what’s shining.
That same chasing-shiny-things quality lends to a sense of excitement and enthusiasm that could clearly help the charisma-challenged Romney.
Rubio’s Uranus in Libra is conjunct Romney’s Neptune in Libra. Romney idealizes relationships and Rubio wants unique, unusual relationships. Rubio, if Veep, will challenge the entire concept of Veep.
Rubio is not your father’s vice presidential candidate.
Ohio Astrology Assessment
OHA gives Rubio 5 stars out of 10.
Rubio may be too much like George Romney and may spark in Mitt Romney uncomfortable feelings from the past. Time of birth is needed to determine moon sign.
While Rubio has charm and charisma that Romney lacks, he may be too challenging of Romney in the personal sphere. While a shiny companion may help Romney, shiny also casts a shadow which could fall in the wrong places.
Rubio is probably too inconsistent with sun in Gemini opposite Jupiter and Neptune in Sagittarius. Yes, I know the Romney campaign is an Etch-a-Sketch, but someone needs to be drawing the picture. Two men being etched and sketched might create a disjointed partnership.
And lastly, OHA worries about the money issues in Rubio’s chart. Just like marriage, Romney should choose a bride that truly loves him and not a bride that is marrying for money and status.
