George Bush has Leo Rising in his birth horoscope which the Karmic Insight report describes as follows – “Everything you do is done with pride, creativity and a sense of your own uniqueness. The desires to be a shining star and to stand out as an individual color all of your interactions with the world. At best, this motivates you to excel, to achieve at the highest level possible for you and to be a bighearted, generous, magnanimous, and honorable person.
Others’ successes and talents inspire you. You applaud and appreciate individuality, creativity and the spirit and joy of life wherever you see it being expressed. Warmth and benevolence flow from you and others are attracted to your heart, your radiance, yourstrength. You carry the qualities of the archetypal ruler. You are King or Queen of your realm. If you express the lower side of this energy, however, the picture is much less lovely. You are terribly narcissistic, self-centered, excessively concerned with being impressive, respected and admired. You cannot share the glory and usurp the credit for others’ contributions. You want to “out-do” everybody else. You do not admit your mistakes, you are domineering and cannot let people get too close to you lest they discover you are not as great as you would like them to believe.
You are either overly self-conscious or you have to put yourself forward and be seen and heard on all occasions. Your very presence dominates the scene in ways that more subtle, quiet individuals find intrusive. However, if other factors in your birth chart give you a sense of proportion, humility, and a genuine awareness of other people, these negative tendencies are much less pronounced.
Your soul-function does involve leadership, or being “out there” on the stage of life in a significant way. You can be even more effective and fulfilled in this if you stay focused on giving from your heart instead of your ego.” Furthermore, with Pluto Conjunct the rising sign it means “Your intensity, penetrating insight, and keen sensitivity to the hidden underside of things color your entire life expression. By your very way of being, you have a profound and transformative influence on your environment and those around you. You may inspire fear and repulsion as well as unusual devotion.
You can be a powerful healer of souls if you confront, transform, and integrate your own darkness, woundedness, and urge for power. In any case, your role is that of bringing what is hidden, buried, and “underground” to the surface.” Saturn could be considered the Achilles Heel in a horoscope. What does George W. Bush’s Saturn say about him’ The Karmic report continues …. “Saturn in Cancer You have great fears of being vulnerable and needy, of being hurt or rejected, of letting others see the dependent, childlike, tender, feeling side of yourself.
You may stifle these feelings and put on an armor of detachment or stoicism, shouldering everyone else’s burdens and responsibilities but never letting on that you would like to be taken care of sometimes. Although you crave acceptance and a feeling of belonging, you may distance yourself from the very people who might genuinely care for you (whenever they get too close) or you may deny altogether your needs for human connection and intimacy. You feel awkward and clumsy expressing tenderness or anything resembling sentimentality, and may feel quite aloof from your family (as well as the softer side of your own nature).
On the other hand, you may cling tenaciously to your home and family as a base of security, and depend on them excessively or need constant reassurance from them. An inordinate emphasis on loyalty and responsibility in personal relationships (on your part) may stem from a basic insecurity and a fear of being deserted. At worst you may be terrified of anything unfamiliar. A karmic tie to your mother, a strong sense of indebtedness and/or guilt, or the deep feeling that something was missing in your relationship to her is also indicated. Lessons regarding parenting, and giving and receiving nurturance, are crucial for you in this lifetime. Saturn in 12th house:
The anxieties and insecurities you struggle with may loom large in your inner life simply because you tend to avoid looking them in the eye. You are like the little child lying in a darkened room imagining hideous monsters under the bed and becoming paralyzed by these imaginary fears. Your sense of powerlessness and fear of being victimized by some “bad thing out there” may prevent you from functioning effectively in the world and living out your full potential. Definitely you are your own worst enemy and severest critic, and you may be plagued by feelings of self-doubt and condemnation, worthlessness, and guilt, much of which is either unfounded or based on ancient, not clearly recognized “sins” from the past. Believing the worst about yourself, you are prone to hide from others, certain that they, too, will reject you.
Unconscious messages you still carry (possibly from a critical father) are probably weighing you down and preventing you from seeing yourself realistically. On the other end of the spectrum, you may repress your own fears, your natural sense of caution and limits, “never allowing yourself the luxury of a negative thought”, and consequently go blithley along until you are hit over the head from behind with an undeniable dose of reality. You may see-saw between believing you are far more limited (and bad) than you actually are, to not seeing limits or boundaries until you run straight into a brick wall. You need to ‘make friends with your shadow’, though this is by no means an easy task. It has been said that ‘there is nothing to fear but fear itself’.”
Mercury is conjunct Pluto and describes President Bush’s intense communication style as – “You may find yourself falling into a habit of mind that is suspicious, paranoid, cynical, or preoccupied with the dark underside
Many, many clients are sh of life, and this may skew your entire outlook. (You may also use your considerable insight, persuasiveness, and mental power to try to manipulate others’ thoughts and actions which would inevitably bring negative karmic results.) Verbally you can be quite cutting and hurtful. Realize that simply speaking “the truth” without mercy or sensitivity to how your words are received, can do more harm than good. At its worst this aspect would be expressed in a Machiavellian type of mind, utilizing your keen perception to manipulate and dominate others.”
