“A house divided against itself cannot stand.” – Abraham Lincoln
The recent victory in Kansas brings Rick Santorum front and center once again. It seems that voters are not wholeheartedly behind Mitt Romney.
It is a simple matter to see that Rick Santorum has the charisma necessary to persuade people to give him votes. His natal chart boasts the lovely Jupiter trine Chiron, an aspect that indicates great personal charm.
Others with this natal aspect include Zooey Deschanel and Drew Carey. Ronald Reagan had this aspect in his natal heliocentric chart. Tom Cruise has a natal Chiron and Jupiter conjunction. Ellen DeGeneres has these planets in parallel in her natal chart.
Rick Santorum not only these two planets in a trine, but they are also parallel in the declinations. In Magi Astrology this is called a Bi-Level Enhancement. Rick Santorum has been blessed by a double dose of charisma.
Charisma alone however can’t win an election.
The reason Rick Santorum is still in the race and giving other candidates a run for their money (literally) is found in his progressed chart.
Progressions show the major trends that affect a person’s life.
Although there is no verified birth time it is still possible to progress the birth chart as long as one uses wide orbs.
As you can see on this progressed chart that only has the beneficial angles displayed (such as trines and conjunctions) Rick Santorum STILL has Jupiter trine Chiron in the progressed chart (thanks to retrograde planets) and these create a Grand Trine with progressed Vesta.

Grand Trines are a type of planetary geometry representative of enormous good luck, inspiration and success.
Jupiter and Chiron are also parallel in the declinations by progression. The Bi-level Enhancement that gave him a double dose of charisma at birth is still alive and well in the progressed chart
Additionally, Mars, Ceres and Saturn are also forming a Grand Trine.
Two Grand Trines aligned in this way are called a Star of David.
Rick Santorum’s progressed chart has a Star of David formation in the chart example created for the progressed chart of June 6, 2012.
A Star of David formation is a very rare planetary alignment involving 6 planets and two grand trines. It is a very beneficial example of planetary geometry.
Does this mean Santorum will win the GOP nomination? No, it doesn’t, but it does lead one to predict that Rick Santorum will do something important in the next few years. No one should waste such blessed progressions and talents. He has the energy (Mars) business skills (Ceres) and ambition (Saturn) to make his mark as well as the popularity (Jupiter trine Chiron) with groups (Vesta) to receive help from supporters.
