An Astro-Peek at Rep. Paul Ryan, Social Darwinist and Rep of the 1%
by Jude Cowell
Born on January 29, 1970 in Janesville, Wisconsin, Mr. Ryan's Sun is in the range of 8AQ55 to 9AQ56. His natal Moon ranges from 22Lib49 to 5Sco36, making him either a Sun AQ-Moon Lib, or a Sun AQ-Moon Sco. Both personality combos are detailed below.
Using a noon chart for reference, there's a compulsive-obsessive quindecile (QD, 165 degrees) between a powerful pair: Pluto and North Node (contacts, the public, destiny). Pluto QD NN indicates his being thrust into renown through his powerful perspectives, that he may be manipulative and controlling with others, and he can always connect with powerful people. The maternal influence may be dominant, and he may play a role in sharing perspectives that either empower or distemper others. (Quindecile, Ricki Reeves.)
A gracious helping of both, I think.
Pluto QD NN is shared natally by two famous figures: Fred Astaire and Heinrich Himmler. Hmm...
Well, let's consider Ryan's two possible Sun-Moon blends for good measure:
The Air-Air combo of Sun AQ-Moon Lib indicates one who is highly idealistic, charming, and romantic; broad-minded and tolerant, this blend gives avant-garde tastes and a good intellect, but can suddenly turn rebellious if its "rights" or its sympathetic nature are taken advantage of. It is long on theory and ideals with an overly abstract approach to life; therefore, it is not very practical.
An emotional naivety invites disillusion and disappointment when others turn out to be merely mortal. (Delay? Hastert? The Ayn Rand whose nasty 'objectivism' he worships? Objectivism, in which no one counts but you and yours, makes it much easier to toss the poor and the ill off the roles of social safety net programs, as Mr. Ryan demonstrates so ably.)
Sun AQ-Moon Lib's Images for Integration (Sun = conscious mind; Moon = the unconscious): "Anarchists form a committee to overthrow the tyranny of committees...Good friends fall in love and get married."
This blend was mentioned in a recent post as being that of Boris Pasternak, who wrote, "As for the men in power, they are so anxious to establish the myth of infallibility that they do their utmost to ignore truth."
The misty Air-Water blend of Sun AQ-Moon Sco is a different story. It gives a powerful intellect, keen observation power, charisma, a strong-will, egotism, and it holds fierce principles. This charisma can have a hypnotic effect on others (those Aquarian blue eyes?) Here is an avid student of human nature that can 'psyche you out' with ease.
A commanding haughtiness and the inner conviction that he is "it" draws people under his spell (which must've gone over my head!); there's a self-important streak which supports a Sun/Venus conjunction...love (Venus) of self (Sun.)
One with Sun AQ-Moon Sco is capable of detached withdrawal and expressions of contempt especially if the ego has been wounded; there's a tendency to carry hidden resentments for years. Here are instincts of the reformer dedicated to principles, and a persevering investigator who can brood with the best of them - an all-or-nothing personality...a zealot for some cause.
(Note: among other things, Social Darwinism is a cruel method of population control--make that, de-population.)
Images for Integration: "A scientist dissects a scorpion with great tenderness and absolute precision...A researcher presents his findings to colleagues at a 'Science for Humanity' Conference....Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." (Sun Sign-Moon Sign, Charles & Suzi Harvey.)
Sun AQ-Moon Sco is the natal blend of Adams family member Henry B. Adams who helpfully explained to us that, "Politics, as a practice, whatever its professions, has always been the systematic organisation of hatreds."
Well, I don't know enough personal info about Rep. Paul Ryan to hazard a guess as to which Sun-Moon blend is his own but I do know which Solar Eclipse Series he was born into (7 South) and it's one infused with Mars/Pluto energies because its initial eclipse had a Mars/Pluto square involved; 7S's initial occurrence was on June 22, 1248 OS @ 8Can03 (conjunct US natal Sun/Jupiter.)
7S = the immense power, force, and anger of the Mars/Pluto square is channeled into this Series by way of a trine to Sun/Moon; huge obstacles will suddenly clear, or a pending potential crisis will manifest suddenly and move through the life very rapidly; things will seem to move at great speed (paraphrasing Brady's Predictive Astrology.)
This hidden clue 'tags' Paul Ryan as a Mars/Pluto personality, perfect for the goose-stepping obedience required by string-pullers of the GOP (complete obedience, until corporate Tea Partisans crashed their party.)
(Note: if you wish to understand your own Pre-Natal Eclipse Series and how it influences your life, study the initial eclipse in 'your' series for more clues, if you haven't!)
The last manifestation of 7S occurred Oct 3, 2005 @ '10Lib'; next occurrence will be Oct 14, 2023 @ '21Lib'. 7S has also occurred in the years 1915, 1933, 1951, 1969, and 1987, with 1933 standing out due to FDR's Inauguration and his subsequent establishment of social safety net programs that Mr. Ryan and his ilk want to dispense with so the monies can be re-purposed and the weak can be weened out of existence = more resources for the 1%.
7S is the PE Series of Leon Trotsky, the Dec 2005 elections in Iraq, and of 'Black Monday' Oct 19, 1987 when the DOW plummeted alarmingly...under Republican Ronald Reagan.
And, to paraphrase Barry Goldwater (R-AZ), "A government big enough to give you all you want is big enough to take it all away."
Warning...or Directive? Turns out it's been the Republican plan all along.
