As my cat sat staring out of the window at the birds, I asked her which one she would catch and kill, crunching beneath her feline jaws, if she could go outside. Much to my surprise, she answered off topic.
“I think Donald Trump is going to pick Bob Corker as his vice presidential running mate,” she responded absentmindedly.
While we may think that our pets simply stare of the window seeking any moving object for purposes of stimulation, cats (but maybe not dogs) are often pondering deep political, social and astrological ideas.
What about Newt Gingrich?
My cat choked when I mentioned former Senator Newt Gingrich. She then coughed up a hairball.
“His chart is so similar to Trump’s, they could be twins separated at birth with sun and Uranus in Gemini and moon in Sagittarius.”
But doesn’t like attract I asked?
“Do you imagine a man [Trump] who wants to be the loudest man in the room selecting another man who wants to be the loudest man in the room?”
What about Chris Christie?
When I mentioned New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, my cat looked at me like I was crazy. She gave that look that occurs prior to jumping up the wall and chasing at ghosts.
“Christie’s moon is also in Sagittarius and sun in Virgo. Virgo like Gemini is ruled by Mercury. It’s another Newt Gingrich situation.”
Doesn’t Christie have any redeeming value for Trump?
Christie’s Mars in Cancer conjuncts Trump’s Mercury in Cancer, but that only serves as a trigger to make Trump more emotional.
What about Joni Ernst?
Iowa Senator Joni Ernst earned a whisker twist from the cat. She then sneezed.
“Her sun is in Cancer and moon is in Gemini and while Trump is unpredictable, he probably doesn’t like his women to be this way, especially emotionally unpredictable. Ernst’s Mercury, sun and Mars are all tucked between Trump’s Mercury and Saturn. Her moon is astride his Uranus and sun. If she knows what’s good for her, she’ll run for the hills.”
You don’t think Ernst would put aside these small personality differences of control and manipulation and take the job anyway?
“Her Saturn is in Taurus. Trump won’t pick her; she costs too much.”
What about Mike Pence?
My cat laughed an evil feline laugh when I mentioned Indiana Governor Mike Pence.
“Pence has sun, Mercury and possibly moon in Gemini. You are always saying that Americans rarely vote for Gemini energy.”
It is true that historically Gemini doesn’t fare well in American politics but this election has proved all pundits wrong, political and astrological.
But wouldn’t Pence’s Venus, Mars and Uranus in Leo be a charismatic box office draw?
“Trump’s Pluto in Leo is between Pence’s Mars and Uranus. Trump’s Mars in Leo is closest to Pence’s Uranus in Leo. Leo likes to be center of attention so other attention-seeking individuals tend to get thrown off the podium.”
What’s so great about Bob Corker?
My cat explained the astrological compatibility of Trump and Tennessee Senator Bob Corker.
“Corker’s Saturn, moon and Neptune are in Libra which trines the Gemini energy in Trump’s chart. Moreover, Corker’s Libra energy is in Trump’s second house of money and Trump’s Sagittarius moon is in Corker’s second house. There’s great compatibility of the monetary kind here. The meal ticket serves both sides.”
So it’s about the money?
“I forgot to add,” my cat added, that Corker has Jupiter in Taurus very close to Trump’s midheaven. This is more emphasis on the financial value of the relationship.
Could Corker be Finance Chair instead? Or a big donor? Or maybe Trump could just steal money from under Corker’s mattress while visiting.
“Corker’s sun and Venus in penny-pinching Virgo are in Trump’s first house,” my cat continued. That provides a sense of purity and propriety that Trump lacks. Corker is great for both the image and the pocketbook.
What about Ben Carson?
Neurosurgeon and former Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson also has the pristine Virgo energy and a nice solid moon in Taurus which knows how to collect, acquire and keep money. Doesn’t that equal what Corker can bring?
“That’s the problem,” responded my cat. “Moon in Taurus likes to save money. Moon in Libra [Bob Corker] knows how to spend it.”
What about Ohio?
Lastly, I asked the cat if she thought Trump would consider any Ohioans such as Senator Rob Portman or Governor John Kasich.
She didn’t bother with astrology in her answer. “Ohio didn’t vote for him. You know he’s going to ignore us in revenge.”
