Mitt Romney's Astrological Profile

Astrology Information Regarding Mitt Romney

Back when the Presidential election was way in the distance, this writer decided to make a comparison of the horoscopes of Governor Mitt Romney (born Willard Mitt Romney) and President Barack Obama. Time has a way of flying past, and the Republican Convention is already next week. So it seems best to begin with taking a look at Governor Romney’s horoscope. In full disclosure and in the spirit of good will, I admit to being a Democrat, and will not be casting my vote for Mitt Romney. But I will be fair in my analysis of his horoscope, and invite questions or commentary on it. What I do not invite are political arguments, or dissertations on either candidate. My objective is to understand both men a little better, and to have a little fun with this!

Romney's Astrological Trinity

The Trinity is my starting point, the person’s Sun, Moon, and Ascendant positions. Mitt Romney is a Sun sign Pisces. Every Astrologer begins a chart expecting to see certain things, so my first surprise came rather quickly. Mitt has three planets, known as a stellium, in Pisces, not too far from his Midheaven. Mitt Romney is a dreamer! Who knew? He knows he can make a difference. His Mercury, representing his thinking processes, and his Mars, the way he acts in a physical manner, or what kind of activities he enjoys, are the other planets in the stellium. He loves being near the water and it is very soothing to him. This grouping of planets is important, and I will address it further along in this work.

Governor Romney's Trinity Continued

Romney’s Moon is in 27 degrees of Scorpio, making him a very emotional man, because Scorpio is a water sign, as are all those Pisces planets. His Jupiter is also in 27 degrees of Scorpio, a very close conjunction. Jupiter is about luck, and the Moon is about women, so Mitt should have terrific relationships with the women in his life, and work well with them, as the conjunction is in his 6th house. And since this conjunction trines his Pisces Sun, in his 11th house, the house of friendships, hopes, and wishes, I am sure he gets along well in his marriage and with his female friends and relatives.

I have watched him when his wife Ann is speaking on the stage, and he looks at her with what many used to call “the Nancy Reagan Gaze,” the one she always gave to Ronald Reagan when he was speaking. It is obvious that Mitt adores Ann, and works well with her. But the campaign seems to have had tough times communicating with women. Why is this? Let us just check on his Ascendant, or Rising sign, and this can be explained.

Mitt’s Ascendant is only 58 seconds into Gemini, an air sign. This is the way a person appears to those who do not know him well, which is most of us. A Gemini Ascendant makes a person seem very changeable, but also very quick witted and able to think about many different things at one time. Romney has planet Uranus in his first house, the Ascendant house, so this causes him to do or say things suddenly, without thinking about them. Uranus rules Aquarius, which makes thoughts move at lightning speed. So he would say or do unexpected things on the fly. He may already have practiced a speech he worked on with his speech writer, and in the middle of giving it, decided to wing it.

Romney's Mercury Retrograde and Stellium in Pisces

Another thing I notice is Mitt’s Retrograde Mercury in Pisces. Retrograde Mercury can be the cause of stuttering, or some other kind of speech impediment. None of this is apparent in Mr. Romney, but I suspect it is the reason he may blurt things out without thinking about them enough. This could be the reason this writer has heard him described as a “flip flopper.” He is not changing his positions to please his audience. Yes, he really changes his mind that much. Since his Venus is sitting right on the Midheaven of his horoscope, this is the spot the public notices the most about a person. And unfortunately, right now the public is watching him try to undo some damage others in his campaign have done to make voters feel that Romney is not a woman friendly candidate. His Saturn, planet of limitations is opposite his Venus, ruler of women, so this is not helping to endear him to the fair sex. The alleged unfair and intrusive measures he wishes to take on women’s issues is front and center, because that Venus is right there sitting in one of the most prominent spots of the chart. Yet I have never heard Governor Romney say anything negative about women. He needs to tell the people in the far right of his party to stop causing these problems for his campaign. But he does not like to tell people what to do.

Because of the three Pisces planets, Mitt Romney dreams big, but it is a mutable sign, so it is harder for him to assert himself than it appears. Then top that off with a Uranus and Mercury that cause a person to blurt things out in a way they do not mean to say them, and this is an issue which needs to be overcome. He is ruled by his emotions, and they are very influenced by the people around him. Water signs just soak up whatever emotions are around them, just as a stream follows the banks. When another person has a different view then Mitt, he can think about it, and if he likes it, well, he may decide that is his latest opinion.

Possibilities For Romney with Pisces Planetary Positions

Let us discuss those three planets in Pisces more, because they are important. The Sun is where you shine, and for Romney it is in his house of friends, hopes, and wishes. He’s a great entertainer, and a good story teller. The Mercury in Pisces (how he thinks) gives him a great way to visualize his thoughts and memories, even to a photographic level. He is very telepathic and intuitive on the unconscious level, so must be careful he is not influenced by the thoughts of others around him, if they differ from his. He does not arrive at decisions in a logical manner, but on the basis of his intuitive perceptions that float up from his unconscious mind. This may sound like his thinking is spacey, but he does have good instincts and can trust them. In fact, he would get in less trouble if he did trust them.

Mitt is very sensitive and artistic, and should be able to imagine himself in other people’s shoes pretty easily. Yet he seems to care more about keeping taxes low for the rich, when there are so many needy people who need a break. So what is squashing the normal, humanitarian Pisces tendencies? His planet Uranus in his first house makes a square (a challenging or difficult aspect) to both his Sun and his Mercury. So Romney must beware of being too easily swayed by people he trusts when it comes to expressing his thoughts, and should trust his own self about how he wants to portray his image. He tends to be whimsical and scattered, and has trouble planning long term actions, though if he wins the election he will have a large staff to help with these matters. One would hope they are all Earth signs. His intuition and imagination compensate for any lack of efficiency and discipline.

Romney Must Rely More On His Own Instincts

We do know that his successful healthcare plan while he was Governor of Massachusetts is almost the same thing as the one proposed by President Obama, yet Romney is doing his best to distance himself from this success story, calling it “Obamacare” now, and acting as if it was a failure. This is an example of him acting on bad advice which is not helping him or his image. He loves new ideas, but they are strongly colored by the people around him, and right now it appears his handlers are hurting him more than helping him.

The Uranus in Romney’s 1st house means he is determined to come across as knowing what he wants, without caring much what others think. This seems in contradiction to his Mercury or thoughts being influenced by friends, but it is the norm to see contradictory things like this in Astrology charts. The houses the planets are in tell us what areas the conflicts are in. So he can feel confident about his appearance, a 1st house issue, and he does look Presidential. But he needs to be wary of the 11th house planets, because he is a dreamer, and may be prone to trusting the wrong people or letting them color his ideas too much.

Mitt’s planets in the 11th house of friends and wishes and Moon and Jupiter in the house of work means he has many friends ready to help him as soon as he says the word. He cares a lot about his friendships. This Astrologer believes here is where he best expresses his warmth, and that he has the ability to make lasting friendships, because as a friend he is responsible and probably has many of the same friends for years, with his Scorpio Moon. His Sun in the 11th house means he loves group activities, and this is what draws him to be ambitious and to believe he can lead a large group of people, like the U.S. His Mercury (mind) squares his Uranus (appearance) and so sometimes his ideas seem eccentric and impractical, not helped by the stellium in Pisces. He tends to jump to conclusions without getting all the facts. This can also manifest as innovative methods and techniques for problem solving. Romney does not appreciate advice from others, and often changes his mind several times a day regarding issues (something we see in the media). That retrograde Mercury tends to alienate others because he sometimes makes tactless remarks, and then he acts foolishly opinionated and his views show some intellectual conceit. He really has to depend on his intuition more.

Romney Believes People Live Like Him

Venus in his 10th house in Aquarius means he has strong artistic talents, and that he approaches things in a heart centered way, rather than a logical one. But Aquarius on the Midheaven can make a person original to the point of eccentricity, and also, air signs make people seem distant, probably because they are usually wrapped in their own thoughts. Once again, we find evidence that he has trouble understanding cold, reasoning abilities, but also has that clash where he will do something unexpected because of the Uranus in his 1st house, and not care what others think. Once again, important conflicts or issues show up more than once in a horoscope, in different ways.

Mitt Romney is sympathetic and generous, and he really thinks he can make a difference, to bring good into the lives of the people in our country. He has concerns about social welfare and good health. He just has trouble asserting himself with all those planets in Pisces, and has to fight to get his real views out in the public eye. He is not trying to be mean or to hurt poor people, it is just that he has never been exposed to their kind of lifestyle, and cannot understand how other people’s upbringings and circumstances are so much different from his. He really thinks everyone can borrow money from their parents to start their own businesses, after said parents spent $50,000 a year to put each of their kids through college. They had to take out 2nd mortgages to do it, or hit up their 401k plans though. Didn't everyone grow up like Mitt did?

Scorpio moon people have very strong attachments to their family members, and enjoy their home lives. They actually do not like to travel that much, and would prefer to be home with their loved ones and familiar things. Scorpio is a strong sign, making Mitt an astute and strong person, who can overcome hurdles with ease. But at times he can be his own worst enemy, destructive or intolerant, since Scorpio moon people see everything in terms of black or white, with no in between. He is what he is, and does not want to change. He is a proud man and is not afraid of confrontations. As a Scorpio Moon person, he is secretive at times, and even those closest to him may not really understand him that well. Sometimes he takes on tasks because of pressures from the family, even though he does not want to, but this pertains to family only. He has difficulties with religion and can be rigid in his philosophical, educational and religious values.

Romney’s Jupiter/Moon conjunction makes it so that he tries a little too hard to smooth over differences of opinion, he dislikes it when his relationships are not in harmony. Again we see this contradiction, where he has a difficult or unusual opinion, but wants everyone to be happy and getting along. His Neptune (dreams) is in his 5th house of romance, so he does have the ability to be romantic and creative in romance, perhaps this is what we see in his face when he looks at his wife.

Astrological Peek Into Mitt Romney's Life

The stellium in Pisces means he really is a very emotional dreamer, a sensitive person. But he shows a lack of clarity in his opinions and actions at times. He needs to trust his impressions and gut feelings, because they are strong and will not fail him. Mitt has a more dreamy temperament than anyone suspects, is a tad absent-minded, and with Mars in Pisces, has a low energy level.

Saturn is the karmic planet of burdens and limitations, and Romney has it in his 3rd house, which means he does not open up too much emotionally when communicating, even to the people closest to him. This may account for his lack of concrete ideas regarding what steps he would take as President besides replace President Obama. He has some trouble sharing his deeper feelings and affections, though he feels very strongly, with all those water signs. We have explored the fact that he gets some of this emotion out of his system with his friends. The full 11th house of planets makes it important to Romney to be strong willed and to succeed, but sometimes he fails to take advantage of opportunities and does not have enough foresight to plan for long range goals. He must be careful not to initiate activities without sufficient preparation. He also has bad timing—Saturn opposite Venus—and this can make it difficult for him to present his case in the right manner.

My goal in interpreting Governor Mitt Romney’s Astrology chart is to show you a picture of Mitt Romney the man, not the politician. This is only a sampling of what information can be found in this horoscope, and I am going to insert a copy of the horoscope with the article, should any of my readers want to interpret it further. Hopefully this exercise has been a successful one, and Governor Mitt Romney is wished all the best as he moves forward in his life.

You know, I actually forgot that Nancy Reagan was interested in Astrology and consulted them for major decisions. Thank you for reminding me and for reading, and for your kind wishes. This one was fun to do. When I begin someone's horoscope, I have a picture of what the person is like, and this one was a big surprise! I didn't think Romney was so emotional, and it made me look at him differently. So it's always good to keep learning. Take care.

You seem to be very good at what you do. Very good. Of high quality and I wish you success. But I feel I just can not get over your thoughts on Nancy Reagan, a pioneer in the field of astrology. The astrologer who brought the notion of waiting for just the right time to make your bold political moves to the forefront of consideration by every serious politician. The same one who suggests that pot use clouds the galaxy from revealing the truth, the truth that might include the actual dark soul of an incompetent President Obama. Have a great day and keep up your quality of work, and maybe improve upon it, which I foresee as the cause for your future success.

Dear Jean,

I have come late to the party, I know, but now that we are members of the same proud sisterhood-have always loved Mighty Mom- I had to start reading some of your articles.

This is fascinating! I am headed next to your analysis of our President! Can't wait! I have a lot of catching up to do- love it!

You too. I called a hotel down the street from my house, and they are already filled to capacity! I've been watching the Weather Channel, and it didn't seem that serious. We live on a one lane wooded road though, and often trees fall on the power lines. I did find a room in a different hotel for Tues, in case we are out of power Monday. A generator only saves the food in the refrig, and gives you one light or the TV, so it really isn't much. We have electric heat, so it can't help with that, it's not worth it to buy one. Be safe.

Hi there!

After the second debates, the families came on stage. Anne hugged Mitt, and he just stood there with his arms at his sides. I think it's silly for the whole family to get up on the stage and act friendly when they likely can't stand each other, it's so forced. The Obamas seem just like regular people. I began writing about all Metaphysical topics, so the blog is a bit broader. But everyone likes Astrology the best. I make up fictional characters based on their signs there, so it's a new challenge for me. Take care, I know life gets busy!

Hi Jean! I suspect you are right and the handlers have him under their control. That would explain why I keep feeling like he is robotic. He body language has bothered me from the beginning and I often feel like his words are hollow. It would also explain why he is wrong so often. It is hard to keep memorized work straight when it has no significance or relationship to the speaker. I would like to "see" the real Romney but I don't want him as the President. lol I am so excited to find you Jean. I will be reading your hubs and visiting your blog in a day or two. Things are crazy busy this week. :-)

Hello Irc7815,

Thank you for reading and for your kind comments. It was hard to try to be objective, as I also am a confessed Dem. But interpreting his chart was quite a surprise. I never would have suspected he had all those Pisces planets and a Scorpio moon. He's a very emotional person. So how can he have the cold attitudes that he seems to have on so many subjects? Unless his handlers are not letting him show his real self. That was what happened with Al Gore. I trust the Astrology! People who were in MA when Romney was Gov say he was awful, and now he's just lying to pretend he's more moderate. I have lots of Astrology on my blog too, the address is in my profile. I am following you too!

This is quite interesting and a view of Romney that explains a lot of what we have seen. I am a confessed Democrat and do not like Romney but it useful to understand why some things are the way they are. Great job and I for one appreciate the work you have done to write this.

Hi Sylvia, hope all is well with you! There is a big old 28 degrees of Scorpio sitting on Obama's Midheaven, and Romney's moon and Jupiter are conjunct in 27 degrees of Scorpio. This should add more to the fireworks. I agree about Romney, he seems to scattered anyway, but when I saw those Pisces planets and Gemini Ascendant, I don't think we'll ever know who he is, although that's the charge against Obama all the time. It was fun, I'll be taking one of the pieces down after Election day! Take care.

Hello Jaye,

It is very scary. I can't believe the lies the R's told at their convention. They have blocked virtually anything Obama tried to do, and then pretend they had nothing to do with it. We should stop electing people like that to Congress, but people don't care much about their local elections unless there is an issue specific to their own lives.

Very interesting, indeed. Although the very thought of Romney and Ryan in the White House scares me, the additional consideration of an easily-led Romney as president and Ryan as another VP with too much power (remember the Bush/Cheney debacle?) is even more frightening!

I, too, will look forward to reading your analysis of President Obama's horoscope.

Hi Patrice,

I was hoping you would weigh in since you have such good insights, especially about Pluto. It's good to see you. I didn't get into the nodes, because there has to be some stopping point for me, but I am interested and will research that. I love learning so much by interpreting, there's always something new! But I will look into Pres. Obama's sun degree of Leo. Romney's Jupiter/Moon conjunction in Scorpio interested me more. I feel that Romney really doesn't stand on his own two feet much, it's like his way has been paved in gold. You always have insightful comments on Pluto as well. I have the Scorpio ascendant, and sometimes just feel those power struggles and ignore them, I'm so used to it! I don't argue the points unless it's important to me. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi Hollie,

Thanks so much. I tried my best to stay as neutral as I could, since it's really the horoscope and the understanding of the person that it explains. Happy to see you!

The two things that stand out for me in Gov. Romney's chart are the north node in the 1st house and the Saturn/Pluto conjunction in Leo. I'm wondering how close that conjunction is to Pres. Obama's Leo Sun. If it's close, there's a big power struggle going on between the two, one that can teach (Saturn) Romney a lot about the dynamics of power (Pluto - and let's not forget the Moon/Jupiter conjunction in Scorpio, as well as Chiron, the wounded healer), if he's open to learning.

As for the north node, I'm thinking he needs to stand on his own two feet and be more of an individual, having relied on partnerships and relationships in past lives (south node in the 7th). He's comfortable in relationships, but for soul growth, he needs to be his own person. Check out what this site has to say about north node in 1/south node in 7 ( It highlights some of the points you made about trusting his instincts more.

Excellent analysis! Looking forward to one on Pres. Obama.

Hello Carol,

Thank you so much, it was fun, and I hope other Astrologers will feel free to add any comments. As you know if you were interested, a person can always find new things in charts. I was rushed as I forgot the Republican convention is this week, I'm not an R, and it was important to get it written. Thanks for stopping by!

Hi John,

Great to see you, I knew I would on this one. I had the idea to compare the candidates ages ago, but was busy on my blog and writing elsewhere, and had to whip this up fast, as the convention is already next week! Yes, those tensions are really strong. Just a sneak peek for you, Obama has an Aquarius Ascendant! Most people act a little like their opposite sign. Obama's moon is in Gemini, 4th house, so you know about Gemini moons. It's going to get interesting. Romney and Ryan together have the least foreign policy experience since any team running since before the Civil War. It's scary. Take care and I hope your family is doing well too.

Hi Jean, so smart of you to write this excellent hub. ...hope you and your family are doing well....

I've been wondering about Romney...additionally, Ryan is an Aquarius and like Palin -another Aquarius - I can feel the strong tensions against Obama who is their polar opposite - Leo. ...nonetheless, it's like you've said in the past, we must see the positions of all the planets at the time of their birth to truly understand.
