What do the astrological signs of the 2012 election candidates reveal about these seasoned politicians- -- and how they might handle (or continue to handle) the role of a lifetime?

Mitt Romney, March 12, 1947
As a Pisces, Mitt Romney is ruled by the energies of the emotional Water element. He tends to react to situations from his feelings first, intellect second. His astrological chart lacks any Earth elements, so staying grounded is an issue for him.

Ron Paul, August 20, 1935
Ron Paul is a Leo, ruled by Fire, which gives him strong confidence and faith. But his astrological chart also contains four planets in Water signs, making it challenging for him to turn his creative ideas into tangible results. To gain proper perspective, it’s crucial that he stands back and observes all situations with a discerning eye.

Rick Santorum, May 10, 1958
Though the sometimes-stoic element of Earth rules his Sun sign, Taurean Rick Santorum has five Fire planets in his chart, making him a confident, entrepreneurial personality -- awash with big ideas and sometimes demanding of attention. The grounded Earth energy helps balance out all the Fire intensity, which usually relies on luck rather than steady preparation.

Newt Gingrich, June 17, 1943
Gemini Newt Gingrich is a mix of Fire and Air elements. People with this combination are often perceived as being full of hot air. On the positive side, Gingrich has great confidence and strong communication skills. He is prone to burnout since the Fre-Air energy doesn’t allow him to stop long enough to recharge his batteries.

Jon Huntsman, March 26, 1960
Jon Huntsman is a get-up-and-go fiery Aries, with three Earth and three Water signs in his chart. Fire and Earth give him endless energy, and Fire and Water inspire intense creativity, which can also translate into a slightly volatile temperament.

Barack Obama, August 4, 1961
Ruled by Fire, Barack Obama is a charismatic Leo. The elements in his chart are well-balanced: Fire brings him enthusiasm, Earth inspires common sense, Air gives him the ability to put things into perspective and Water makes him an empathetic leader.
