Mohamed Morsi, the new President of Egypt, has sun conjunct Pluto in Leo, Mars in Leo and Jupiter conjunct moon in Aries.
What does Morsi have in abundance?
Fire and energy.
What does Morsi lack completely?
The good news to me is that no matter what role exists in this world, there is someone to fill it. Some of us shake in fear at the idea of ruling a country that is still highly explosive emotionally and politically. We (water and earth signs) are hiding under the bed during the uprisings.
The air signs join in and send newspaper stories and blogs.
The fire signs say, “How can I lead this?”
The Jupiter / moon conjunction is opposed by Neptune in Libra which says, “Do it for your partner.”
Neptune adds idealism to the Aries aggressive pursuit of the goal.
Delusion is high in this chart.
Delusion, again, can be a good thing when you want to do something extraordinary. I find confidence and delusion to be close cousins.
An ideal or goal drives us forward and if we don’t truly believe in it, we couldn’t take a step. That’s why earth is so slow to move. Earth puts its foot down only as long as it can see where it will step.
Fire, if you’ve watched it lately, doesn’t have boundaries and moves rapidly and unpredictably.
Some astrologers look to the current Pluto (in Capricorn) and Uranus (in Aries) square as the extreme friction that is creating these fiery situations.
Speaking of this nasty square, Uranus (in Aries) will conjunct Morsi’s Jupiter/moon conjunction at the end of 2013. Morsi will be a very lit firecracker. Whatever will be occurring at that time, Morsi is not a man to go down without a fight.
In fact, Aries and Leo look for a fight, enjoy the energy of competition and combat. That’s good if you are attacked but somewhat of a problem if you are seeking peace.
As Saturn enters Scorpio at the beginning of October, it will begin squaring Morsi’s abundant Leo energy. It’s going to be a rough two years.
Morsi wants to keep a flame alive and Scorpio wants to play in the mud. Not good bedfellows.
But who said politics was easy?
If you rule after a revolt, you need to manage the capricious energy. If you have a bunch of Leo and Aries in your chart you probably don’t want that exciting energy to end which can be a problem in itself.
Ohio Astrology has a suggestion to Morsi on the financial sphere. There’s another man in the news who was born just a month before Morsi – former Barclays Chief Executive Robert Diamond.
Diamond is probably looking for work right now. His Leo sun will get along with Leo sun Morsi. Diamond may have moon in Taurus which would probably stability and perseverance.
There’s a Chinese quote I can’t find in the cyber sphere right now but goes something like this. “If you are fated to meet someone, you can find each other from 10,000 miles away. But if you aren’t fated to meet someone, you could be standing back to back and not see each other.”
A man like Morsi with too much fire in the chart should seek stable, earth-sign folks to implement the huge, ostentatious Leoine ideas.
We all need balance in some way. If we don’t achieve balance, the world often provides external controls. Hopefully Morsi will find his own controls.
