Tonight is debate night, as Barack Obama and Mitt Romney face off for the first time, answering questions America wants to know. Who will have the stars on his side, winning over the most voters with inspiration and intellect?
It’ll be quite a night, as Venus moves into critical Virgo on that day and will bring an element of very detailed arguing, boding well for both candidates. For Mitt, he is a Pisces Sun, Gemini Rising, Mercury in Pisces and Mars in Pisces. Currently, he has Jupiter on his ascendant and the Venus transit complementing his vital planets for this debate, giving him a solid stance and ability to keep cool under pressure.
Meanwhile, President Obama -- a Leo with an Aquarius Rising, Mercury in Leo and Mars in Virgo -- will have the power of Venus behind him in terms of motivation and fanfare. He will know how to rile his audience behind him. So, both candidates have good aspects, but the one deciding planet is Mercury, which will be in airy Libra, trining both Obama and Romney’s ascendants. This aspect will work much better with Obama’s fiery signs rather than Romney’s watery ones. All in all, it will be close, but Obama edges out Romney in cosmic luck and will likely be the winner in tonight’s debate.
