If you’re not a Leo, you have a chance if you’re one of the other two fire signs – Aries or Sagittarius.
In other words, you’d better have an extroverted, confident, ebullient, gregarious personality if you want to rule a Latin/South American country. Ostentatiousness is accepted and some fluffing of the feathers encouraged.
Earth signs need not apply.
Here’s the current lineup:
Like the United States, Latin/South America likes fixed signs (Leo, Aquarius, Taurus and Scorpio). Almost half of the current Latin/South American rulers are fixed.
Fixed signs have intensity, forbearance and determination. It seems appropriate that anyone wanting to rule any country in this world have determination and force of personality. The challenges are many so that mutable signs will be off onto something more fun and cardinal signs just get too frustrated.
The two greatest Latin/South American adversaries to the United States are Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Fidel Castro of Cuba. Both are Leos, the great centers-of-attention. Chavez even goes on TV every Sunday and talks for hours (or used to). Both bring the pride of Leo to the fore to thumb their noses at the US.
Hopefully Fidel and Hugo are thumbing their noses at being dominated by the US for the good of their people. I know Fidel said goodbye to the US only to say hello to the former Soviet Union. From the bed of one abusive lover to the arms of another abusive lover . . .
I fully support national self-determination and don’t like that wealthy countries are forcing less-developed countries to sell their natural resources in order to stay solvent. It does take strength to say “no” to the pressures of the developed countries who sometimes even invade your country if you don’t sell them what they want at the price they want to pay.
So, if you want to rule a Latin or South American country you need to be:
Leos also love their hair so nice hair should help.
If you’re not a Leo, be sure to act like one.
