Sen. John Glenn:
Glenn's chart is much more closely connected to the U.S.A. chart than two previous ones. It is a chart of a steady, conscientious, self-contained man who is powerful. He is calm, deliberate and a good manager of his drives, energies and resources. He should consider running for the presidency but not in 1984, since his chart is quite inactive at that time and does not pack a sufficient punch. In addition, the modest aspects that appear on it do not "peak" at the election time.
Sen. Ernest Hollings:
There are very strong ties between the charts of Hollings and the U.S.A., but his chart is almost unaspected in 1984. This indicates a low energy level that becomes a hindrance during a grueling campaign. It also indicates lukewarm interest. He may campaign but not very strenuously. And he really should not, for when the energy level is low, it is not a propitious time for strenuous physical activity; health could be impaired.
Sen. Alan Cranston:
This chart is also very loosely connected with the U.S.A. chart, and such a peripheral connection puts the presidency quite out of reach. Moreover, in 1984 his chart is almost completely unaspected, and I do not believe that he would even be competing for the nomination. I also would doubt that he will campaign for anyone.
Sen. Gary Hart:
This is a very strong chart of an ambitious man with an excellent and penetrating mind. His chart is strongly tied with the chart of the U.S.A. and one day he may well be a candidate. But the time for it is certainly not in 1984, since his chart is inactive at that time. It indicates that he may one day "inherit" the presidency from the vice-presidential spot.
Former governor Reuben Askew:
This chart is fairly well connected with the U.S.A. chart and, in 1984, it is raring to go. The aspects on it are very strong and indicate a number of changes. He will either be involved with the nomination process or vigorously campaigning or, with his chart, he may have a place on the ticket; 1984 would be a good time for him to run. But again the planets on election night do not illuminate his chart and thus indicate defeat.
Gov. Jerry Brown:
Jerry Brown's chart is rather closely connected with the chart of the U.S.A., but it is even more closely connected with the chart of Ronald Reagan; therefore, if President Reagan runs again in 1984, Jerry Brown may well be running against him. His chart is strongly aspected in 1984, and he may strongly campaign for a place on the ticket. If President Reagan is not running, Brown's aspects lose some of their punch. His natal chart, however, does not seem to support the presidency.
To round up the list of current candidates:
House Majority Leader Jim Wright mentioned Chuck Robb, the current governor of Virginia, as a vice-presidential possibility. "They could do a whole lot worse than . . . look at the man called Chuck Robb" said Jim Wright. From the astrological standpoint, they could not do anything worse than picking Robb. His chart, linked with just a single peripheral connection to the U.S.A. chart, and this link blocked immediately in his own chart, clearly indicates that the closest he will ever come to the presidency is having married a president's daughter. His chart in 1984, without any significant aspects, would be only a hindrance to any other chart.
And so from the astrological point of view, the Democrats had better start looking for other candidates if they want to capture the White House in 1984.
