Latin American countries like fiery rulers and Felipe Calderon, President of Mexico, fits the bill.
Sun in Leo and moon in Aries is a volcanic mix. Fire is expressive, enthusiastic, extroverted and courageous. On the negative side fire is self-centered in that it demands all the attention. Usually fire has more energy than the other elements and naturally gets center stage. But if they don’t . . . there’s a fiery hell to pay.
Calderon’s Venus in Libra is opposite a most-likely moon in Aries (some chance of it being in late Pisces). Transiting Uranus in Aries (just left Pisces) is bouncing all over that opposition of love and feeling. There are some sudden relationship changes here.
Calderon is suffering the same relationship issues as the rest of us as the cardinal grand cross (Pluto in Capricorn, Uranus in Aries, Saturn in Libra and Mars in Cancer) applies friction to any natural friction in our charts. His friction is fiery passion versus harmonious pleasure.
Which does he like more? He probably goes back and forth from being a gentle companion to a raging jealous lover.
Many of the politicians I’ve been looking at lately have transits to the moon. Maybe for a politician the moon is more than the women in his/her life. Maybe the moon is the populace and for politicians maintaining a relationship with the populace feels the same as maintaining a relationship with an emotional woman.
Or maybe it’s common for politicians to have a lover tucked away.
Or maybe both.
Calderon’s natal Uranus, Pluto and Mercury are in Virgo and Neptune will be opposing all those planets in the near future. Natal Jupiter in Pisces will be filtering that psychic, spiritual energy.
I worry about this aspect for Calderon. Leo expresses in possibilities and sometimes, how shall we say it, “exaggerates” the truth. Calderon’s natal Mercury in Virgo is a detailed speaker and probably reins in some of that Leo storytelling.
However, I worry that any lies Calderon is telling (we all lie, I’m not judging) will come out in a very unusual way. Neptune suggests leaks of information that have imaginative elements added that create a weird story.
Neptune rules images and FOG, is diffuse and undifferentiated and wants to merge.
The energy reminds me of the movie “The Informant” (spoiler alert) where the supposed-hero keeps changing his story and then you learn that maybe he’s not what he seems. The information keeps changing, the story doesn’t make sense and absolute truths get sputtered at the wrong time. Even at the very end he’s changing the story. The story never ends . . .
The Neptune transit involves Piscean and Virgo energy. Those energies can relate to health, physical and spiritual. Possibly Calderon will have a health issue or he may be aware of one that exists in his country, ala the swine flu.
Calderon, like the rest of us, is living in interesting times. We each have our challenges right now. Calderon’s are going to be rough. He probably knew that when he became President of Mexico.
Maybe that’s why we elect fire signs in the Americas. What other sign would take on this kind of challenge and believe he/she could be successful?
