It’s too bad politicos listen more to their advisers than their astrologers. Ohio Astrology sheds a tear for Governor Kasich’s recent astrological misstep. Any one of Ohio’s distinguished astrologers could have warned him.
Today Kasich as Republican Presidential nominee openly entered a pact with contender Ted Cruz. As described in The New York Times:
The agreement, in which the two candidates agreed to cede forthcoming states to one another — Mr. Kasich would, most crucially, stand down in Indiana’s primary on May 3 to give Mr. Cruz a better chance to defeat Mr. Trump there, while Mr. Cruz would leave Oregon and New Mexico to Mr. Kasich — carried the stench of desperation, but initially it seemed like a breakthrough.
It’s quite interesting that former candidate Marco Rubio suggested this same strategy in March and Kasich was not compliant. In fact, I saw him on a Sunday morning talk show clearly offended at the idea.
One month is an eternity in politics.
Cruz has sun in Capricorn while Kasich has moon in that sign. Capricorn is known for ambition, at worst calculated and at best earned through hard work. With Kasich and Cruz, we might see both poles. Capricorn is also authoritarian so this stop Trump tactic has an air of “we know what’s best” while the voters are saying “you are not what we want.”
Capricorn is the connection between these two men. The other aspects indicate that Kasich may have initiated a self-defeating partnership.
Kasich has both Saturn and Neptune in Libra about 11 degrees apart. Tucked between these two planets is Cruz’ Uranus and moon (although we don’t know the degree of moon).
Kasich’s Saturn in Libra is in its exaltation. The desire for fairness and balance is strong and exemplary. Neptune in Libra idealizes partnership. These are the more pleasant areas of Kasich’s chart. However, Kasich does have a cardinal T-square involving these planets which ultimately points to great learnings about all forms of relationship. I forsee a great learning here.
Cruz’ Uranus within that sphere of Kasich’s chart indicates sudden upheaval to that energy. Cruz’ moon in that sign adds a certain co-dependent pull.
In another crucial area of the chart, Cruz’ Saturn in Taurus is tucked between Kasich’s Venus and sun in that sign. Saturn in Taurus for Cruz suggests a sense of physical want. Taurus is material (in a good sense in that it truly enjoys the earth) but Saturn insists there’s never enough and constantly wants more – more stuff, more money, more position.
Someone’s Saturn on one of your planets puts the damper on the energy. Unfortunately for Kasich, money that may have been funneled to him may find its way to Cruz.
Both Kasich and Cruz have Mars in Scorpio. Cruz also has Jupiter and Venus in that sign which is opposite Kasich’s Taurus energy. Taurus is money earned by self; Scorpio is shared money. Kasich will be the lender; Cruz the borrower.
Overall, this relationship seems to holds more for Cruz than Kasich. Cruz with moon conjunct Uranus is also unpredictable emotionally which will be difficult for the extremely earthy Kasich. What they’ve agreed to today may be in dispute later.
But who knows, this election cycle has been the most unpredictable of my lifetime. The pundits have been wrong. And what are pundits but astrologers without horoscopes?
