Mitt Romney, former Republican presidential candidate against Obama in 2012 and about to be Utah senator, has written a scathing op-ed about Trump and his inability to rise to the mantle of the office. “A president should demonstrate the essential qualities of honesty and integrity, and elevate the national discourse with comity and mutual respect. … And it is in this province where the incumbent’s shortfall has been most glaring,” he wrote.
Which has given rise to the thought that Romney might pitch himself in again for the Republican 2020 candidacy instead of Trump (or replacing him if he disappears in a puff of smoke).
What is intriguing is how upbeat Romney’s chart looks over the election and inauguration. It doesn’t mean he’ll stand or win but he surely looks in good spirits over the Inauguration.
Born 12 March 1947 9.51am Detroit, Michigan, he’s a Sun Pisces trine Moon Jupiter in Scorpio and square Uranus – confident, intuitive, innovative. Though he’s also cool with three planets including Venus in Aquarius in Air signs, and he has a stubborn Saturn Pluto in Leo.
In January 2021 tr Pluto will conjunct his Sun/Jupiter midpoint as it has been doing on and off since early 2020 which is mega-successful. Tr Jupiter will be conjunct his midheaven at the Inauguration as well as conjunct his 10th house good-for-PR Venus. And between the election and the inauguration he has the in-luck tr Uranus trine his Jupiter/Uranus. Even if it isn’t him for the WH hotseat it looks less likely that it’ll be Trump, given Romney’s good humour.
His relationship with Trump looks rattled till mid February 2019 and is jolting and jangling thereafter. With major upheavals in 2020.
