Mitt Romney and a History of Saturn: Part I

Posted by on Thursday, June 30 2011

Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is the current frontrunner in the Republican presidential nomination contest. How did he get to where he is, and what might his past say about his future? I propose a key planet to understanding Mitt Romney’s life is through the transits of Saturn. Saturn makes one full return every 29-30 years, a half return every 14-15 years, and a quarter return about every 7 years. In this first part, I will be solely concentrating on the Saturn transits to the position of his natal Saturn from his birth to the present day. In the second part, I will be showing other assorted Saturn transits in Mitt Romney’s life that speak to other aspects of his career, and hopefully will confirm, augment and complement the findings here.

Saturn 2 Leo 1947: “Miracle Baby”

Mitt Romney was born at 9:51 am on March 12th 1947 in Detroit, Michigan to George and Lenore Romney. George Romney was a rising star in the automotive industry at the time who would later go on into politics and even run for President. George Romney sensed something special about the child, as his wife Lenore had been told by doctors a few years before that she would not be able to have any more children, but she had faith. Up until the time of birth the health of the mother was in doubt, but mother and child ended up fine. In his proud announcement to his employees. George and Lenore would refer to their new son as their “miracle baby”. Romney was born with Saturn at 2 Leo, while it was anti-culminating on the IC. Saturn is the planet of ambition, struggle, responsibility and interestingly enough, father figures. The IC is a point of focus for the family and homelife. Saturn also rules the opposite end of the IC, the Midheaven, which is a point of focus for one’s career and reputation. As we will see, Mitt Romney’s career has been inextricably linked to his father and his family, something which Mitt Romney himself has always talked about.

DOB March 12, 1947: Mitt Romney

Willard Mitt Romney (born March 12, 1947) is an American businessman and politician. He was the 70th Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007 and is a candidate for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination.

Romney is the son of George W. Romney (the former Governor of Michigan) and Lenore Romney. He was raised in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and then served as a Mormon missionary in France. He received his undergraduate degree from Brigham Young University, and thereafter earned Juris Doctor/Master of Business Administration joint degrees from Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School. Romney entered the management consulting business which led to a position at Bain & Company, eventually serving as its CEO to lead it out of crisis. He was also co-founder and head of the spin-off company Bain Capital, a private equity investment firm which became highly profitable and one of the largest such firms in the nation, and the wealth Romney accumulated there would help fund all of his future political campaigns. He ran as the Republican candidate in the 1994 U.S. Senate election in Massachusetts but lost to incumbent Ted Kennedy. Romney organized and steered the 2002 Winter Olympics as President and CEO of the Salt Lake Organizing Committee, and helped turn the troubled Games into a financial success.

Romney won the election for Governor of Massachusetts in 2002, but did not seek reelection in 2006. During his term, he presided over a series of spending cuts and increases in fees that eliminated a projected $3 billion deficit. He also signed into law the Massachusetts health care reform legislation, which provided near-universal health insurance access via subsidies and state-level mandates and was the first of its kind in the nation. During the course of his political career, his positions or rhetorical emphasis have shifted more towards American conservatism in several areas.

Romney ran for the Republican nomination in the 2008 U.S. presidential election, winning several caucus and primary contests, though he ultimately lost the nomination to John McCain. In the following years he published No Apology: The Case for American Greatness and gave speeches and raised campaign funds on behalf of fellow Republicans. On June 2, 2011, Romney announced that he would seek the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Political observers and public opinion polls place him as a front-runner in the race.
