This short list of possible Mitt Romney Veep picks (according to this story) includes Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell.
Where to begin?
I’ll start where I always do – sun and moon.
McDonnell has sun in Gemini and moon in Sagittarius. Sound familiar?
Newt Gingrich, current Republican presidential nominee, has this same sun and moon.
Luckily for McDonnell, he has more balance. Mars in Capricorn provides grounded, focused direction and Jupiter/Mercury/Uranus/Venus in Cancer provides a true feeling (and loving) nature.
However, Capricorn and Cancer are opposites and so are Gemini and Sagittarius. McDonnell is a man of polar opposites.
Gemini and Sagittarius are fun signs and, like Gingrich, can rouse the crowd because who doesn’t like some jolly, good-natured fun?
Who doesn’t like in the middle of a long drive to see a road off the side of the highway, wonder where it goes and spontaneously hop on it?
Who doesn’t like ice cream for breakfast sometimes? And who hasn’t neglected a bill and spent the money on something fun and frivolous?
Maybe Mitt Romney.
Mars in Capricorn is a calculating, driven placement. It opposes a great deal of Cancer energy (Jupiter, Mercury, Uranus and Venus) suggesting that McDonnell feels a strong drive to succeed but is often pulled back by family, a loving and generous family.
Back and forth, this is McDonnell.
A fun, loving and spontaneous back and forth, but back and forth.
McDonnell is also a wanderer and bedside philosopher. Essentially he is seeking meaning and belonging. From all that energy in Cancer, he appears to be surrounded by a very loving family and community.
With all that love, I’m imagining a man who is loved and comfortable but has a desire for something he can’t exactly put his finger on. He knows he’s blessed and shows his appreciation, but occasionally can’t resist wandering off to look for that something else . . .
Ohio Astrology Assessment
OHA gives McDonnell 7 stars out of 10.
McDonnell would bring to the ticket energy, fun and a feeling that he’s part of your community so you can be part of his community (Cancer energy).
Romney could use a person who emanates a feeling of inclusion.
On a personal level, Gemini and Sagittarius are mutable signs which would square Romney’s Piscean energy. Romney will feel very uncomfortable with a man who wanders off and can’t be found even if that man is at a donor’s house having Sunday dinner after that church function on the schedule.
McDonnell’s Saturn is in Scorpio, the same sign as Romney’s moon. For Romney, McDonnell will cost money. Romney may have to pay off some debts for McDonnell.
If balance is what is necessary for Romney in the general election, McDonnell will provide that. As long as Romney can let go of moon in Scorpio control and let Bob be Bob, McDonnell could provide the fun, rollicking times that voters seek during a general election.
If an election isn’t any fun, what’s the purpose?
