You Knew It Was Coming — The Rush-ster

OK my progressive friends hold onto your hats. But this chart makes me sad. If I didn’t know this belonged to Rush Limbaugh, I would actually have some sympathy for the person who had to carry this chart around for a lifetime.

With his retrograded Mercury (in the 11th house – the house of group contacts) squaring a retrograded Saturn that is in the 8th house, the house of personal power,it is clear that all of his bluster and bravado is covering up some deep seeded power and education issues. Mercury retrogrades often produce people with learning disabilities, problems expressing their true thoughts and in general being heard and understood. His Mercury is also next to the sign of the sacred wound, Chiron. We know Rush wasn’t a stellar student.

I can see a little Rush, overweight, not very smart, not popular – not being in his power and having big problems with authority figures (all that retrograded Saturn.). Brings a tear to your eye doesn’t it?

The fact that he was able to parlay his Venus on the ascendant ( a sign of creativity and appeal) into quite a career is actually a testament to the old boy. Even if he does spread lies and hatred – hey we can’t be perfect. That Venus is in Aquarius the sign of the rebel and his rising sign is Aquarius so there is a big call to be different and shocking.

Venus in Aquarius also indicates the ability to have an unusual romantic life. I will say no more!
