David Cameron, British Prime Minister, is going through some hard times. He’s been interviewed regarding a newspaper phone tapping scandal, has a host of European Union problems to contend with and now must answer questions about Barclays.
What’s up in his chart?
It’s all about the hair
I shouldn’t use astrology negatively, but I can’t help throwing this out there to the evil journalists amongst us. If you want to truly piss off Mr. Cameron, forget about Barclays, forget about the BP oil spill, forget about phone tapping and forget about Greece.
You want to get under Cameron’s skin, just publish a picture of him with his hair in disarray.
Cameron has sun in Libra and moon in Leo. This is a romantic combination with poetry and pride in equal amounts and a total and complete fear of a bad hair day, and I mean that literally.
With Jupiter and Mars also in Leo, Cameron is quite a stuffed-shirt of pride, even more maybe than Mick Jagger and Bugs Bunny.
Libra is air and Leo is fire. The water and earth signs in Cameron’s chart are from the outer planets and are generational – Neptune in Scorpio, Saturn in Pisces and Uranus/Pluto conjunct in Virgo.
Cameron came from a generation that wants to clean up the planet (Uranus/Pluto in Virgo), stop bullying (Saturn in Pisces) and prevent AIDS (Neptune in Scorpio), but Cameron may not be so interested in these things personally.
Saturn in Libra and Scorpio
Saturn is just finishing its transit of Libra. Like all Libras, Cameron has had his share of relationship issues. Saturn has been breaking us apart when our relationships aren’t fair or equitable. Thank you Saturn.
As Saturn moves into Scorpio at the beginning of October, it will conjunct Cameron’s Mercury in Scorpio. I have some news for Cameron – you may have finished all your testimonies, but the questions will only getting deeper and nastier come October. Plan now.
In a year when Saturn moves onto Cameron’s Neptune, he will experience some sadness or depression. Some of those issues that his generation focuses on will become part of his life. The sadness comes through lost emotional connection.
Leo can feel, but is quite dramatic in its expression. Scorpio is also somewhat dramatic and intense, but Scorpio is the entire picture, the inside of the box and not all items are pleasant. Libra and Leo prefer things to be fun.
Scorpio has been called a lot of names, but I’m not sure “fun” is one of those names.
Uranus in Aries
Uranus transiting Aries trines the moon in Leo but opposes Venus and sun in Libra. While Aries energies with a strong sense of self, it also puts up a fight.
Leo likes a fight but Libra doesn’t. Also, good healthy bantering that leads to a beer or sex afterward is 100 percent acceptable to Libra/Leo. It’s a fight that has no end or is ugly for no apparent reason that bothers this romantic combination.
Leo wants to be a hero. Uranus in Aries will promote that energy, but the Libra energy may back away at the wrong time for fear of appearing uncouth.
Pluto in Capricorn
Pluto transiting Capricorn has torn down some of our structures, like the world economy. As a politician, Cameron must deal with this personally even if it doesn’t affect his own chart.
In his own chart, Pluto is squaring Venus in Libra. Once again, the once fun relationships with picnics in the park and wine by the fire are now being replaced with arguments about power and control.
As Cameron has the north node in Taurus, he should develop self-reliance. Pluto will help with that, first by removing the partnerships that prop up his independence.
Neptune in Pisces
Neptune has just begun its 14 year transit of Pisces. It will take about that much time to transit Cameron’s Saturn in Pisces. Epiphanies for Cameron are still a way off.
Neptune is currently trine that Mercury in Scorpio that will take the Saturn hit come October. Cameron will have many stories to tell around that time. I suspect that if Cameron leaves power soon, a book will be issued soon after.
Cameron’s book may involve Piscean self-pity about how people were out to get him. I suspect with the Pisces-Scorpio energy, he will reveal some secrets.
I’ve seen worse
While Cameron is undergoing some unpleasant aspects with Pluto, he’s got it better than a lot of folks out there. Also, Leo moon generally bounces back with good cheer, even in the midst of a Saturn transit of Neptune in Scorpio.
One thing that might help Cameron through this time is to get more in touch with the generational energies he carries. I don’t know enough about him to know how that would affect his political position. But this is a chart that might benefit from truly feeling others’ pain.
It’s good to have fun. But in power, the people’s problems are your problems. Cameron may not understand that and may only realize it when he writes that book in reflection.
