In the 2008 Elections I looked at the birth charts of the contenders, both Democrat and Republican, against the lens of prominent astrological factors in past President’s charts as charted by Romanian Astrologer Dan Ciubotaru. I wrote about Mitt Romney in 2008:
“Romney shares nine of the eighteen most frequent natal astrological configurations shared by United States presidents, out pacing his nearest rival, McCain by three, and Huckabee by two. “
Mitt Romney has the potential to be a great president of the United States. It’s there in his natal chart. But for whom would Mitt Romney be a great president? And why?
Romney college and formative business years shows the result of an economically and politically privileged upbringing.
Romney had missed much of the tumultuous American anti-Vietnam War movement while away [in France as a Mormon ]. Unlike most middle and lower class young men his age he avoided the military draft with impunity. Romney had initially received two 2-S student deferments, then, like most Mormon missionaries, a 4-D ministerial deferment while in France, and then two more student deferments. When those ran out, his high number in the December 1969 draft lottery (300) ensured that he would not be selected.
At culturally conservative BYU, he remained isolated from much of the upheaval of the era. He became president of, and an innovative fundraiser for, the all-male Cougar Club booster organization and showed a new-found discipline in his studies. In his senior year, he took a leave to work as driver and advance man for his mother Lenore Romney’s eventually unsuccessful 1970 campaign for U.S. Senator from Michigan; together, they visited all 83 Michigan counties. He earned a Bachelor of Arts in English with highest honors in 1971, and gave commencement addresses to both the College of Humanities and to the whole of BYU.[nb 7]
Romney still wanted to pursue a business path, but his father advised him that a law degree would be valuable to his career. Thus he became one of only fifteen students to enroll at the recently created joint Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration four-year program coordinated between Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School.
He was non-ideological and did not involve himself in the political or social issues of the day. He graduated in 1975 cum laude from the law school, in the top third of that class, and named a Baker Scholar for graduating in the top five percent of his business school class.
Romney was recruited by several firms and chose to remain in Massachusetts to work for Boston Consulting Group (BCG), reasoning that working as a management consultant to a variety of companies would better prepare him for a future position as a chief executive.[nb 8] He was part of a 1970s wave of top graduates who chose to go into consulting rather than join a major company directly.
While Romney was living and working the life of the economically privileged, America began devolving from an industrial economy into a service economy. Wave upon wave of layoffs hit American society leaving the economy in tatters. We were a shell-shocked people in the aftermath of an economic war. The upshot was the social contract shattered and people no longer trusted companies to act in the best interest of society. The worst part of it was that we accepted that it was OK for big business to pursue a strategy of profits over people. And somehow during this time it became perfectly OK for the rich to stay rich, while the bulk of population bobbed up and down in the seas of economic upturns and down turns sliding in and out of poverty at as the economy improved then recessed.
This is ethical atmosphere that molded people like Mitt Romney who cut their business eye-teeth during this formative time.
Consider that he is against affirmative action. He wants to extend the Bush tax cuts for the rich, and slash corporate taxes and eliminate estate taxes. He also wants to give tax credits to businesses that offer employees health insurance as a solution to “Obamacare” even though there are no provisions to limit what businesses charge for employees for premiums. Because he believes that current unemployment system discourages people from finding work, he wants to transform the current unemployment system from employer-based contributions to personal savings accounts.
He fully believes that these measures will give “the jobs creators” the incentive to reinvest in America even though the massive bailouts of the previous Republican administration did nothing to inspire such actions. In other words, he wants to help the rich to stay rich because this is best for America.
As for non-rich, he wants to see mothers on welfare get jobs or lose their benefits, but doesn’t want to allow them birth control to limit the size of their families. He wants to overturn a woman’s right to privacy as articulated in Roe V. Wade, while giving the states rights in determining when life begins, guaranteeing a 50 state free for all in women’s rights.
He opposes amnesty for undocumented workers even though this is a situation ignored for decades by our government allowing these “illegals” to build families, homes and contribute to society by paying various taxes (such as sales tax).
Clearly Romney has no idea what it is to live life as most American’s do.
What would have been different if he had made different choices, chosen a life of public service over that of a businessman? Could Romney had been a president that could balance the diverse needs a multifaceted and multicultural nation?
Romney has three personal planets in Pisces, and his planet of personal values, Venus in Aquarius. He has a yod pointing those personal planets, the Sun, Mercury and Mars, with Saturn and Pluto at one leg of the yod while other leg sports the planet of idealism Neptune.
His Moon and Jupiter is in intense Scorpio, a magnetic combination that should give him the inner resources to stand by his convictions and command positions of authority.
He should be idealistic and compassionate. He should be a voice for the people at large instead of the 1%.
We still argue the nature versus nurture concept of the formation of personality, but the truth does seem to lie in between. We are born with an innate series of personality traits that we either magnify or modify as we mature. This is the true nature of our “free will” to either answer the inner promptings of our souls or answer the call of world at large. Romney was born with the right stuff presidential, but he chose a career in pure capitalism that has tainted the well.

23 Responses to MItt Romney’s Potential Vs. Actualization in His Birth Chart
“Romney answered, “Well, he didn’t have as much as I think some people anticipated. And I did get a check from my dad when he passed away. I shouldn’t say a check, but I did inherit some funds from my dad. But I turned and gave that away to charity. In this case I gave it to a school which Brigham Young University established in his honor. … And that’s where his inheritance ended up.”
According to a short history of the George W. Romney Institute of Public Management at BYU, the family provided an endowment in 1998, within a few years of George Romney’s death.
So, in Romney’s own words, he did “inherit some funds” from his dad. But he gave them away.
“I figured we had enough of our own,” he said.”
He served as a Mormon missionary in France during a time when young men of poorer circumstances had no choice but to be drafted into the army and sent to Vietnam. The charity was a school established by Brigham and Young University in his father’s name. Adding to the endowment of that school would be something expected of the family of the one so honored. At $140,000 the salary of the Massachusetts governor is .0007 or .07 of a percent of his total net worth, hardly worth Romney’s time to add this line item to his tax return. One could go on, but the point is, Mitt Romney has done everything anyone would expect of the someone of his monied and privileged background. Mitt Romney has not a clue what it means to choose between medicine or food, to not be able to pay for health care, to know a day of going hungry. If you can not know what these things feel, how on earth can you be expected to come up with solutions for issues that affect so many Americans?
Money is not bad.
And I tell you what, after 10 years working in a corporation, (and working closely with the accountants) there is no voodoo like the voodoo corporate America does with their books. The ‘manifestation’ that metaphysical teachers preach has nothing on the wealth creation techniques of the 1%.
The problem with Mitt Romney is not his money. The problem is his attitude about people who are not in his income class. It reveals a lack of understanding about the problems of poverty and what it takes to earn what he considers “middle class” which he thinks is a quarter of a million a year.
Understand these two facts. 77% of American jobs will not pay your bills. Only 2% of Americans earn 250k and above. Sociologists call this class “the upper class”. The rest, according to Romney in his own words, are dependent on the government and won’t take responsibility for their own lives (I know he said 45%, but as you can see Romney does not have a grasp on what constitutes economic classes). That’s you and me, kiddo, unless you have secret stash of money in the Caymans. I don’t know about you, but I am insulted by his attitudes. I slogged my way up the corporate ladder to where I was earning $55,000 a year (note: according to Mitt Romney, I’m lower class here and part of the greedy, grasping percentage that won’t take responsibility for their own lives) until my job was outsourced to another country. So much for the American Dream. That my and other’s jobs were outsourced is OK with Mr. Romney, because as we all know the “job creators” need to make more money so they can create the jobs to replace the jobs they outsource to other countries. Do you see the logic in that? Of course not, because it is not happening. Job creation comes in response to supply and demand, and right now the supply is cheaper in other countries and the “job creators” demand the right to buy their labor there.
Go ahead and believe that Mitt Romney is the answer to America’s problems even as we increase the number of homeless families with children on the streets. Go ahead and believe that there is a level playing field and that “anyone” can get rich if they work hard enough. That will comfort the 54% of American’s who work hard, and still struggle with putting food on the table and who make choices between health care and the light bill. Go ahead and vote for Mitt Romney, who thinks that American workers should pay for corporate America to get rid of their jobs. That will show all of us “left thinking” liberals who happen to have a modicum of compassion for the plight of the American worker.
That’s nice. I gave 4 months worth of my wages to the government for taxes. He gave 1.68 months. I think he had a little wriggle room in his finances.
The truth is is that there is no real choice for Americans in this election and we can only vote on the lesser of two evils. (Whoever thinks that I’m “for Obama” never read my previous articles on another blog during my last election.)
Yes, insults so support your position.
That’s a really good question.
