The odds of George Clooney running for president of the United States just doubled, according to Time magazine.
This is presumably off the back of his marriage to the supremely eligible-for-first-lady Amal Alamudding.
So well, okay, why not? In the past, it’s been mostly (only?) Republican actors/celebrities with presidential ambitions – Arnie Schwarzenegger, Ronald Reagan. There is a precedent here. When asked “how could an actor become the president?”, Reagan famously responded “how could the president not be an actor?”
Clooney has been blazingly open about his political leanings in recent years – he’s telegenic and his causes seem real.
Astrologically, he’s got it ALL going on – Neptune is nearing his Pisces Ascendant, Pluto is trining his Taurus Sun and Saturn is heading for his Sagittarius Midheaven. It’s all coming together in 2016. These are idealistic and visionary transits – if you’ve GOT ideals, Neptune can make you nigh messianic about manifesting them BUT Saturn-Midheaven is a moment of uber-pragmatism.
He’s also got the classic leaves-his-mark signature of astrology: Pluto on the North Node. So next July-August would be the logical moment for some sort of announcement re any political ambitions – that’s Jupiter ON that Pluto-Node.
Or am i WAY out of touch with the American presidential system – does he first have to breed and then his children go to Yale/Harvard and join the Skull & Bones club? Would 2016 just be the beginning of a lengthy process to garner $$$ & support? Or does celebrity status of his magnitude bypass a lot of schizz?
He’s got Moon-Saturn in late Capricorn – having Pluto on those two in the early 2020s would seem like super-hyped responsibility and gravitas.
