What Makes Mike PensivePenceImage

These are nervous days for Mike Pence. His life could go wrong or right in so many ways. His involvement in the Ukraine affair means that his name is bound to come up in the televised hearings, and not in a good way. At the same time there are rumors that he could be replaced as Trump’s running mate in the 2020 election by someone more charismatic, such as Nikki Haley. On the other hand, if this impeachment thing goes south for Donald Trump, Pence could find himself lifted to the highest office in the land.

We do not have a time of birth for Vice President Pence but a partial horoscope done for noon on his date of birth (click on Mike Pence to see the chart) does reveal some interesting transits. First of all, Pluto is making a quincunx aspect to Pence’s natal Mercury while Saturn is making a similar aspect to his natal Sun. Taken individually, I wouldn’t have much to say about either of these aspects, but together they create an unfortunate trend.

When Saturn aspects Mercury our outlook darkens and we are prone to worry and negative thinking. Pluto aspecting Mercury works in a similar fashion though with Pluto our thoughts typically turn toward the “big” issues like fate, death and the meaning of life. Since it seems that President Trump used Pence to carry his message of extortion and quid pro quo to the Ukrainian president, thus making the Vice President a party to his unconstitutional activities, it is only natural that Mike feels a little down.

The good news for Pence is that the aspect between Saturn and his Mercury will be over by Thanksgiving. The bad news is that Pluto moves a lot slower and will remain within an one degree orb until shortly before Christmas. However, even if holiday cheer does brighten Pence’s outlook, he’ll hardly be out of the woods. He’s got some problems with Neptune that are going to be around for a lot longer.

Neptune is currently square Mike Pence’s natal Sun. Under this kind of aspect our aims are confused. Friends we thought we could count on may prove to be false and our advantages morph into deficits. They describe periods of uncertainty, uncertainty that spreads down to our most basic concept of who we are. Pence, who emphatically identifies himself with his Christian faith, now finds himself making false and misleading statements in order to defend President Trump.

As I said, Mike Pence’s bout with Neptune is going to continue for a while. Neptune will not move past this aspect until early in February 2020. That means that it is likely to cover the entirety of the impeachment process. Even though it currently looks like Republicans are united in their support of the President, Trump catches some rough aspects in January that could change that. The fact that his Vice President is also suffering through some very bad cosmic weather is just more bad news and good reason for Mike to remain pensive.
