Presumably we now have a birth time for Paul Ryan from his birth certificate. An uncertified copy of Paul Ryan’s birth certificate from the Wisconsin State Vital Records Office states that he was born on January 29, 1970 at 2:37 AM in Janesville, Wisconsin. Here is the chart:
Using the technique of “zodiacal releasing from the Lot of Spirit” described by the 2nd century astrologer Vettius Valens, two gifted astrologers, Patrick Watson and Chris Brennan, concluded that Obama had the edge over Romney in the November 2012 elections.
In another post, astrologer Leisa Schaim in the tradition of the great Grant Lewi’s work on Saturn cycles, concluded that Ryan had a significant Saturn aspect coming up this fall. Schaim noted the following about Ryan’s Saturn cycle:
- 1992 – The Waning Saturn Square in Aquarius – graduated college.
- 1998 – The Saturn Return in Taurus – elected to first term in Congress.
- 2006 – The Waxing Square in Leo – considered quitting Congress because of Pelosi’s successes in opposition to him.
- Oct. 27, 2012 – The Saturn Opposition in Scorpio – shortly before the November election.
I wondered what his primary directions showed this year, so I calculated his converse and direct primaries, with and without latitude, using the method of Placidean semi-arc, and the Naibod timing key. Here are the results for the period 2011-2013 using only hard aspects:
Interestingly, Saturn by primary direction is also active around the time of the November 2012 election, and it is opposing the natal MC. In the natal chart, Saturn is part of a T-square as it opposes Jupiter and squares the Sun/Venus conjunction. The fact that Saturn crosses the meridian axis by primary direction this year correlates with his selection as Romney’s running mate. It is clear astrologically that this is a highly significant year for his career. One has to wonder whether primary directed Saturn opposing the natal MC this fall, together with transiting Saturn opposing his natal Saturn, means that he will not win in the presidential election. Of course, a single factor cannot be used to make such an important prediction and the charts of all the other candidates would have to be taken into account (which I have not yet had the time to do).
