A Santorum Surge

I have to admit to underestimating Rick Santorum. (May 10, 1958, Winchester VA time unknown.  I’m using a solar chart for noon)  I still doubt that he’s going much of anywhere in the long run.  Aspects to his chart on Super Tuesday, at the GOP convention, the November election, and Inauguration day are all pretty lackluster.

For the Iowa primaries he got a boost from the moon approaching his Sun, Venus at his 10th house cusp, and Mars trining his Sun.  Mars trine sun is good for building momentum, but Mars turns retrograde on Jan. 23 and that could fall apart quickly.  Of course Mars will be retrograde for everyone, but it seems so prominent in yesterday’s transits to Santorum’s chart that I wouldn’t trust that boost to last for long.    Super Tuesday doesn’t look very strong for him, but with transiting Mercury conjunct his Venus and Jupiter sextile his Mars (in the 10th house – fame and reputation) he should get a decent boost then.  At the end of April Jupiter crosses his Sun into his solar 1st house and that will boost his campaign for the duration.

 Bachmann bows out? 

I was hoping and expecting for Michele Bachmann to stay in the race longer, if only for comic value and to keep the right-wing crazies at each other’s throats, but if she can’t score delegates in Iowa…  It seems she’s more aware of reality than most people had guessed and can see the writing on the wall.   Awww…  Michele, dumbbell, sont deux mots qui vont très bien ensemble, très bien ensemble… Oh, well, every girl needs a gay best friend to console her when the chips are down.  She’s lucky to have Marcus at least.
