Can You Trust in What the Candidates Say?

Can You Trust in What the Candidates Say?
Politicians are masters at dodging inconvenient facts in an effort to make voters think the best of them. Can you believe what these candidates say? Where Mercury -- the communication planet -- lives in their birth chart is a good indication of how they relate to the world.

Barack Obama has Mercury in entertaining Leo, so he likes to keep his audience in an upbeat mood. He has a tendency to promise more than he can deliver as he lets his enthusiasm carry him away. Since his Mercury aspects both expansive Jupiter and illusory Neptune, he is a good orator, able to project a dream that catches the imagination. Most often he believes firmly in what he says, but he doesn’t always follow through.

Mitt Romney has Mercury in Pisces, indicating that it’s difficult for him to put exactly what he means into words. He’s better at creating images than logical thinking. His feelings get in the way of his brain, so what comes out of his mouth can often sound conflicted. On the whole, he’s honest in what he says, at times too much so, and his abruptness can be rather startling. He takes his beliefs very seriously and is often unwilling to hear opposing views.

Joe Biden has Mercury in Scorpio, making him secretive, persuasive and stubborn. Like the Scorpion, he does have a sting in his tail, and impatience can prompt him to lash out --perhaps why he has the reputation of saying the wrong things sometimes. He never reveals more than necessary, and can turn on the charm when the situation demands it. With so much Scorpio in his chart, there’s often a hidden agenda to what he says.

Paul Ryan has Mercury in Capricorn, so he can sound unimaginative and a bit too down-to-earth when he talks. That said, he can turn on a dime, go off rather volcanically and say far too much in the heat of the moment, then wishing he hadn’t. He likes to be admired for his intelligence so he often talks up certain facts or situations to show himself in the best light.
