In the horoscope, we have no considerations before judgment, therefore we can render judgment on this horary figure to determine the winner in this political contest.
The 1st House of the Obama Campaign is ruled by Jupiter. Jupiter is in the sign of his debility – Gemini, retrograde and placed inside the cusp of the 7th House, testimonies that indicate that the foundation of Obama’s Ohio campaign is weakening and unable to recover for its recent debate performance setback. However, the Moon which rules the electorate make a sextile to Jupiter, Obama’s ruler a testimony of a solid voter base that will make the race extremely competitive for his GOP opponent in the final days of the campaign.
The 7th House of the Romney Campaign is ruled by Gemini. Mercury has neutral strength being placed in 11th House and makes as mutual reception to Venus, ruler of the 10th House, both by sextile and rulership and triplicity. A fortuitous set of testimonies for the GOP Underdog.
Conclusion: Although the President will continue to poll strong then his GOP opponent in the final days of the Election, Venus ruler of the 10th House which rules Ohio’s Electoral College delegates squares to Jupiter – Obama’s significator. An inauspicious testimony that does not bold well for the Favorite, and indicates an upset is in the making in Ohio race.
Winner: Mitt Romney
