ABCs of Paul Ryan Becoming Speaker of the House
Dateline: Thursday October 29, 2015 Rep. Paul Ryan, a Republican from Wisconsin, who ran as a Vice-Presidential candidate with Mitt Romney three years ago, has been elected to be the next Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
For a more complete background on Paul Ryan, one of the previous articles (The Paul Ryan Vice-Presidential Express: All Aboard!) in our Current News section contains his birth chart as well as the birth chart for former Governor of Massachusetts Mitt Romney.
What is most intriguing about today's chart for his becoming Speaker is that Pallas is rising in Sagittarius while Juno is overhead in Libra. These two key asteroids are part of the stellium of Pallas-Sun-Venus-Juno in Aquarius when Paul Ryan was born. Their potency at his rise today reveals the power of astrology in action and reminds you to always study Ceres, Pallas, Juno, and Vesta when interpreting natal, transiting, and progressed horoscopes.
In addition, when you view Paul Ryan's natal chart, it is very meaningful that the two largest planets, Jupiter and Saturn, which have so much to do with each person's role to play in society and the world, are transiting at his Midheaven (Jupiter in Virgo) and over his Rising Degree (Saturn in Sagittarius). When individuals "rise to power," especially in their fields of expertise, Jupiter and Saturn will always be making significant alignments via their current zodiacal placements to that person's horoscope.
It is also noteworthy that Paul Ryan was born when the Sun and Moon were waning and approaching a Last Quarter Phase. Jupiter and Saturn in the sky in 2015 have just recently made that same type of phase and square pattern of 90-degrees. This can frequently be another cosmic signal that a human soul in incarnation is in the process of rising toward the top of his or her profession and work in the world -- when the transiting cycle of Jupiter and Saturn in the sky mirrors the natal solar-lunar configuration.
Because Saturn is now moving down into the lower half of his birth chart, I don't see Paul Ryan running even as a "dark horse" presidential candidate in 2016 or 2020, and it is doubtful that he would be successful. Becoming Speaker of the U.S. House and being second in line to be president (after the Vice President) is an extraordinary honor and fits into Jupiter and Saturn being placed on his Midheaven and Ascendant now. If he has a higher destiny to become president of the United States, his timing is better around 2028 when Saturn will be on its way back toward the upper hemisphere of his birth chart and Jupiter will once again be in Virgo and Libra in his tenth and eleventh houses.
