Thoughts from a Girl Who Looks Up at the Sky

Politics from an Astrological Point of View

ImageThis is an article I wrote for my school paper. Hope you enjoy!

We all know that politics can be a dirty business. What you see, isn’t always what you get and at the end of the day, we don’t know what is going on behind closed doors. It can be refreshing to know who a person really is before deciding to vote for them. They can share their life story with you and seem like things are a certain way on the outside, but how do we know that is who they really are?

There is a way to gain insight on a person’s true personality and it’s not as taboo as some might think. It is a practice that dates as far back as 5000 BC and it’s known today as Astrology. Some are familiar with this study through things such as a horoscope and the signs of the zodiac, but Astrology is much deeper than the few sentences seen in the Daily News. After all, human beings are very complex, we cannot be described in just a few words. Above all, Astrology is the study of the planets and how they affect us because, believe it or not, they are more than just huge masses floating around in space.

The following two descriptions are of well known politicians and, thanks to Astrology, they can be seen in a much different light than how they are seen in public. Both were analyzed based on their birthdate and time and, with this information, we are able to know how the planets were aligned when they were born. So, today they will be described based solely on their birthday and you can see which personality appeals to you more. Place your vote!

Person A

This is someone who appears very youthful and has an active mind that needs constant stimulation. Usually a dreamer, the best is brought out of him/her when he/she is guided rather than paving the way him/her self. He/she has a very creative and imaginative mind, but it is hard for him/her to put his/her ideas to action. He/she performs at their best when a teacher or mentor can steer him/her in the right direction. Although they deliver to the best of their ability this way, this person is not often self motivated. He/she is extremely sensitive with intense emotions, making them very empathetic towards others.

Person A should be wary of who they let into their circle for they are easily influenced and can be too trusting of others.He/she is also extremely adaptable and somewhat of a nomad, which is good because he/she can blend in around others and in different environments. However, because of this constant drifting, he/she might not be someone you can always depend on to back up what they say. His/her mind tends to roam from one idea to the next, so it is not uncommon for him/her to have a confusing answer or standing on a topic.

This person’s wondrous imagination has the ability to flourish, building useful ideas, but also has the ability to consume and become a distraction, separating him/her from reality. The devotion he/she has is insurmountable for they will stop at nothing to prove his/her love, whether it be for a person or their passion. Unfortunately, stopping at nothing could mean lying as much as it takes to fix things, but deceit only makes matters worse and the consequences could be catastrophic.

One quality he/she does poses that is very admirable is strength and will power to take action. There is a strong force inside him/her that yearns to put forth his/her ideas and make a change, but power can also be abused and this person is very susceptible to addiction of all sorts. Person A believes deeply in morals and truly has faith in the good of people. He/she engages others with their energy and enthusiasm. Because of their ability to absorb everything like a sponge, they are also incredibly wise. With the right guidance, he/she has the ability to convince others of their creative ideals and change the world.

Person B

There is something truly warm and charming about this person. He/she exudes confidence and instantly light up a room. Unfortunately, his/her confidence can come off as arrogance and he/she can be viewed as someone who just simply loves attention. Although open minded, this person must think thoroughly before making a decision and not easily influenced by other opinions. This person often has conflicting ideas in his/her head about what is more important, resulting in a long duration of careful thinking.

However, taking time can easily turn into laziness for Person B and they have no problem with kicking back and enjoying “the good life.” He/she loves all luxuries life has to offer and can spend money excessively. It’s important that this person surround his/her self with responsible individuals who will encourage him/her to be more careful with their savings. Person B is extremely passionate and takes pride in everything they do. Rather than being swayed by others, he/she has to feel in their heart that this is their calling. This person is also capable of being too prideful, which can be damaging because as much as he/she thinks they will always have control, some situations will be out of his/her reach. Person B can be adamant about seeking help from others in order to maintain his/her strong exterior, which can be frustrating, but it only proves the unshakeable loyalty he/she has.

This person absolutely refuses to let people down or have others think he/she is incapable or un-worthy.Person B’s generosity is heartwarming, but can also be taken advantage of. His/her kindness is often mistaken for weakness, but ones that truly know the real them, know the unbelievable inner strength he/she posesses. This person is also very intellectual and open to different ideas, but more than anything, he/she is strong willed and true to, not just people, but to his/her word as well.

If you guessed Mitt Romney for person A and Barrack Obama for person B, you were correct and now have a better idea of who is or could be running this country. Mitt Romney was described as a more passionate person who is abstract in his ideals, whereas Barrack Obama was analyzed as a very prideful person who is loyal.

I found this to be true in that Romney has very strong emotions. He always seems to get flustered when he is arguing a point and although very eloquent, he shifts where he stands on a topic quite often. Romney’s rising sign is Gemini, which is an intellectual sign of communication. This gives off the appearance of being very approachable, bubbly and youthful. However his true character lies in his sun, which is in the watery sign of Pisces. Romney has an enormous imagination, but it might be better suited in another field, for his dreamy Piscean nature might change its mind too much. His moon rests in Scorpio, another water sign. This mix will give you a person with intense emotions to say the least, which explains why Mr. Romney is so good at arguing. An important placement is also Mars, planet of energy and action, which is also in Pisces. Now, Pisces people are more dreamers than they are doers. With his Mars is in Pisces, Romney has the power to evoke emotion in others. His feelings are strongly expressed without holding back.

Obama, on the other hand, seems much more reserved. Perhaps it’s due to his Mars being in Virgo, sign of service and morals. Virgo is an earth sign that is associated with order and tactfulness. With this placement, Obama is able to put his emotions aside for a moment, in order to make a decision, which is an excellent trait for a politician. His real inner character is his sun, which is in Leo. This fixed, fire sign is associated most with creativity and sex. This is where the bulk of Obama’s confidence stems from and why he usually remains laid back even under constant pressure. His pride comes from the proud lion sign as well, for he never wants to make a mistake or have anyone doubt him. His moon and rising sign are both in air signs Gemini and Aquarius, making him very intellectual. Although he is a passionate Leo, he is a thinker overall and will not rush into anything without weighing the pros and cons.

I’ve got to say that analyzing the birthdays for these politicians has shed a lot of light on who they really are. I found myself nodding and laughing at certain points and saying out loud, “Oh my God, no wonder!” Astrologically speaking, I would be more inclined to vote for Obama. While I appreciate the creativity and empathy Romney has to offer, loyalty comes first. Especially when we are talking about politics.

Romney is definitely devoted, but he’s not very rational. I am the type of person that can handle the truth whether it be good or bad. I personally don’t like to be lied to or have a situation sugar-coated. Romney might feel this necessary to “ensure safety” and although a small lie will start off innocent, it might build if they see they can get away with it once. I prefer someone who is up front and straight to the point. I also like people who pay attention to detail and don’t make any rash decisions. Neither of these candidates are too impulsive, but like I said earlier, Romney tends to go with his emotions, Obama, with his head. Going with your gut is important, but it should be a last resort. I want someone who carefully examines every possible outcome, not someone who is too emotionally driven and has vengeful tendencies.

Researching this was loads of fun, as anything that has to do with astrology always is for me, but I must confess that I ‘m not really involved in politics. The subject has never interested me and as much as I try to engage myself, I always give up feeling confused and bored. I understand that it’s our country and we should all get involved, but I find myself constantly asking these politicians, “who are you really?”

It’s quite incredible, the secrets you find when using this ancient science. You look for answers in the stars and suddenly it all makes sense, THAT’S why I like this person.
