Astro-logical Forecast for Wednesday 6/11/2014: Eric Cantor’s Sudden Upset

Good Morning!

The Scorpio Moon is void of course until 11:23AM ET, suggesting a slow start or twist to your morning routine. After that, the Moon enters high-flying Sagittarius, lifting spirits and lessening the  heavy intensity some may have noted during the past 24 hours.  Moon in Sagittarius is an excellent time for travel and other activities that broaden your mind, including righteous and fiery discussions on philosophical subjects. It’s good for a gambol or a gamble, too. There are no exact aspects to the Moon until just after midnight on Thursday, when it is challenged by nebulous Neptune. A dreamy evening may be yours, accompanied by spirits or a spiritual escape. Maybe some high art or music, too.

Or you may simply feel bewildered, as soon-to-be former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor may be feeling. He’s a Gemini, born with Moon in Sagittarius, so he can certainly appreciate the Sag need to express opinions and be respected for having them. We do not have an exact birth time, but if he was born within a few hours of noon on June 6, 1963 (in Richmond, VA),  he’s experiencing a bewildering challenge from nebulous Neptune to the Moon in his own horoscope. In case you have not heard, Mr. Cantor “lost his Republican primary bid (Tuesday) in a completely befuddling upset no one saw coming.” Befuddling definitely sounds like Neptune in action.

I’ve looked at the planetary patterns on Mr. Cantor’s birth date in the past, long enough see what planetary patterns might suggest him being so darn mean. Seriously, that’s always been part of my impression of him. Mean — as in, not much empathy for certain people who might be impacted by his sincerely-held beliefs on how things should be. I actually started to type “Why is Eric Cantor so mean?” into  Google, but only got as far as “Why is Eric Cantor…” before Google helpfully suggested “…such a douche”.  Which surprised me, but apparently that word has been used in tandem with Mr. Cantor since 2009-ish, at least on the web. But about his planetary patterns…

There’s a stubborn, idealistic and material security-seeking hook-up between mental Mercury and Venus in Taurus that is exactly squared by stern, controlling Saturn in equally stubborn and potentially fringe Aquarius.  Irony: Saturn in Aquarius suggests a need to help people. I am sure he does. A Saturn-Venus square could be reflected in a reserved or chilly emotional expression — “warm and fuzzy” would not be the first impression, compared to — say — this video of an adorable and heartwarming relationship between an orphaned baby rhino and his human caretaker. The Saturn-Mercury square suggests a potentially controlled or controlling mindset; disciplined and careful, but also perhaps narrow-minded.  This pattern among Mercury, Venus and Saturn was hit hard by transiting Saturn through February, March and April, likely triggering issues concerning his professional ambition. He was elected to the Virginia House in 1992, on his first Saturn return (which also would have activated that Mercury-Venus conjunction).  In 2000, with transiting Saturn squaring Saturn and conjunct his Mercury-Venus, he ran for Congress. In 2002, rebel Uranus made contact with Cantor’s Mercury-Venus-Saturn square, and he was appointed Chief Deputy Republican Whip, the highest appointed position in the Republican Caucus. In 2008, with pixiedust Neptune engaged with that square, he was unanimously elected Republican Whip. So there’s a little picture of how planets making contact to Saturn may be reflected in over time in a horoscope — and now you may understand why becoming aware of them can be helpful.

Anyhoo…

Cantor has an exact hook-up between Mars (action) and Uranus (rebel). Mars-Uranus aspects can be volatile; in Virgo, we’d expect an intensification of Cantor’s need for detailed, perfectionist action by whatever free-spirited/revolutionary/independent means possible.  Also of significance: his Jupiter at 13 Aries, which you should immediately note was supercharged by April’s Cardinal Grand Cross. Jupiter in the horoscope suggests how a person needs to be rewarded, and with Jupiter in Aries it is me-me-me all the way. Me first, me lead, my way or the highway, as suggested in this intriguing page from Cantor’s high school yearbook. You’d think transits to Jupiter, the cosmic sugar daddy, from Uranus, Pluto, Mars and Jupiter would suggest expanding resources, as in a windfall investment. And other measurements in Cantor’s horoscope do support material enjoyment in the near future. His next gig is likely to be quite lucrative.  This sudden upset is likely reflected by transits to his Midheaven and/or his Ascendant, which we’d see if we wanted to take the time to figure out his birthtime.

In the horoscope of the US, April’s Cardinal Grand Cross suggested a disruption of the status quo, which was mentioned in this forecast back in 2011 – and in other posts, should you care to search this site or Google “us horoscope 2014 graceastrology” I’d argue this upset in the balance of power in Congress is part of that disruption, with more to come…
