Successful business people and politicians seem to never want to retire. If I had the money of some of these folks, the only place you’d find me is on the beach.
It makes sense, really, that the successful don’t rest – if they did, they wouldn’t be successful. (I’m also not surprised at the rumor that investor Warren Buffett is a penny-pincher).
But it is an election season and I have to ask: Where’s George?
That’s George W. Bush.
We’ve heard from Jeb Bush, George H. W. Bush but not our 43rd president, George W. Bush.
We didn’t hear from him much before he was president so I shouldn’t be surprised that we don’t hear much from him post-presidency. He very well may be enjoying a political-free life.
But it’s still odd that he’s not on my TV screen cheering loudly for Mitt Romney.
Makes me wonder.
What’s Up with George?
According to this Astrotheme chart, Bush has sun and Saturn in Cancer in the 12th house, Neptune, moon and Jupiter in Libra in the 3rd.
Let’s start there. For the past two and a half years, Saturn has been transiting Libra. Saturn passed over Bush’s planets in Libra making a square to the 12th house Cancer planets.
This Saturn transit suggests family and relationship problems. A 12th house sun, especially in the sensitive Cancer, is never one to air dirty laundry in public (thank you).
Cancer and Libra are both relationship oriented; that means they need to feel secure in partnership and family life before launching on any adventure for the self.
Libra is often one to marry young to the consternation of parents. But I think we all have to be what we are and Libra likes to connect with a partner first and then is able to focus on the world.
We all seek partners, but it’s not always a prerequisite to initiate other areas of life.
Pluto transiting Capricorn is not yet opposing Bush’s sun in Cancer. It will begin opposition at the beginning of 2014 from the 6th house of health and work. Pluto has just entered Bush’s 6th house of health.
It’s possible there is illness in his family; Capricorn rules skin, teeth and bones so it may possibly be something affecting those areas.
Jupiter is currently transiting Gemini conjunct Bush’s Uranus in Gemini in the 11th and square Mars in Virgo in the 2nd.
Combined with the 6th house Pluto transit, there could be some money problems relating to factory or worker-related issues.
Bush’s chart is self-oriented, with planets all sectioned in the left hemisphere, which is called a Bowl Type horoscope.
The three outer planets – Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all on the right hemisphere of the chart suggesting that external events will intrude upon the private, family-oriented Bush.
Pluto, I’ve already mentioned. Neptune is in the 8th house of money (shared with others), taxes, sexual relationships, and inheritance. Uranus is in the 9th house of long-distance travel, philosophy and world view.
Saturn leaves Libra in a couple weeks and enters Scorpio. When it does, it will be at the very bottom of Bush’s horoscope, an anchor into 4th house of family, personal emotions and parenting. In the sign of Scorpio, which rules the 8th house, there may be problems with family assets.
Bush appears to be busy with issues that consume most of us – family, work and money. I get the sense that the issue is with those around him as transiting Uranus (in Aries) is opposing natal Neptune (in Libra).
Aries is not quiet about its needs. As Uranus gets near the Bush’s midheaven in the next few years, we may hear more from him.
