The Republican National Convention starts on Monday, August 27 and it seems an uninvited guest might attend – Isaac, as in Tropical Storm Isaac.
When I told my tuxedo cat Lacy that the Republican National Convention may be hit by a tropical storm or even possibly a hurricane all she had to say was, “Mitt’s finally stirring some dust.”
She means Mitt Romney, the nominee. I’m not surprised that she’s unimpressed with Romney as she has a “Pick Rick” poster over her litter box, a relic of the Republican debates when Rick Santorum was stirring some real dust, not money-fueled dust.
August 27 Horoscope
On August 27, Pluto will be conjunct the moon in Capricorn. If that were to indicate a natural disaster, I would guess an earthquake as Capricorn is an earth sign ruling structure. I’d also expect other government bad news of contraction.
A hurricane is air and water energy, not earth energy.
Funny thing, Romney has sun/moon in water signs (Pisces/Scorpio) and his running mate, Paul Ryan, has sun/moon in air signs (Aquarius/Libra). I suppose, combined, they do make a hurricane.
Mars will be in Scorpio, at two degrees, triggering Ryan’s Saturn (in Taurus) and Jupiter (in Scorpio) opposition. Being among the wealthy will make Ryan feel poor and insecure. Money issues will arise in his life, mostly his trying to get more money and hiding his own under the mattress.
Saturn in Libra is still hanging about Ryan’s moon causing relationship issues. That will pass in a month when the issues move into the bedroom (Scorpio).
The sun will be in Virgo opposite Neptune in Pisces. Remember, Mars was in Virgo (and retrograde) during most of Romney’s campaigning against other contenders. With natal Mars in Pisces, Romney will feel nervous and anxious. Expect more Freudian slips from a man who has them frequently (to me, having watched most of the Republican debates).
Jupiter transiting Gemini is better for Ryan than Romney. For Ryan, it provides more “talk” energy, something well within an air sign’s comfort zone. Keep it light, keep it at the idea level and let’s all be friends.
Romney has Uranus in Gemini so Jupiter is energizing. But at the same time it squares his sun and Mercury in Pisces. I expect Romney’s convoluted speech to continue with more speed. Gemini is fact oriented and Pisces imagination oriented and both dislike being backed in a corner. The “just say anything” gene is important in politics but can trip one up if there is a square to Mercury.
But why would Romney feel backed in a corner at his own convention?
Romney will probably be in an over-stimulated zone out state and may simply say unusual things.
Neptune in Pisces squares Ryan’s Neptune in Sagittarius so, like Romney, he will be present at the convention, but not entirely “there.”
Back to the Pluto/moon conjunction in Capricorn – it will be near Ryan’s Mercury in Capricorn. Ryan will rise as the voice of authority, which makes sense if Romney can’t speak clearly or coherently for some reason. Capricorn is authority and speaks as an expert, regardless of experience.
Tropical Storm Paul
Paul Ryan may be the one creating wind and waves, but that’s no surprise from watching the news. Romney wasn’t granting TV interviews until choosing Ryan. The coming out party was the usual 60 Minutes which seems to be the place to be if one wants to be taken seriously (showing up on 60 Minutes seems to be the equivalent of showing up at church).
What will be interesting is how Romney reacts during the convention. I still wonder how much this guy really wants the job.
So what happens if there is a hurricane?
