Lifestyle column: the Zodiac and Politics

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond Politics, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

and Politics with Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

Owing to your individualism, you find it hard to comply with the instructions given by your party. Whatever your stand or your preferences may be, your behaviour is always in line with your own convictions and with your personal interest. You are so straightforward that people can take your word for it. Although they may blame your impulsiveness or your intransigence, it remains that you are often there to clear the land, and you always display amazing boldness. Like Helmut Kohl who bet on the French-German driving force with a view to uniting the European Union, you demonstrate creativity, and you probably dream of entering History for this quality. A courageous person, you fulfil your commitments at all costs, and you love to go up to the front lines. You have the gift of the gab; you can throw off your contenders, but you also have weaknesses. Indeed, you do not calculate risks, and you prefer short fights to long struggles.

The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 1st House.

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

and Politics with Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Regardless of the party to which you belong, you approach all subjects with pragmatism. In other words, you are generally inspired by the basic ideology of your camp, but you take contexts and facts more into account. Your opinion is that actions which have proved efficient are the most valuable ones, and that concrete things are essential. Economy and the world of work especially are your priorities. You believe that all efforts ought to be highlighted, and you promote real incentives. In general, you are rather in favour of the preservation of vested rights instead of the idea of sweeping away the past. You are not always the subtlest negotiator, and people easily guess your intention. Nonetheless, your strong character and your commitment are appreciated. Like Elizabeth II, you may even break longevity records once you have achieved your ambitions.

Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

and Politics with Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

Your dual nature gives you at least two assets. The first one is the ability to address crowds. How can one have a successful political career if one has no public speaking skills? You are clever and brilliant most of the time. You are also comfortable with any social class, with rich and poor people, as well as with learned and less educated people. A flash of humour or a cutting remark usually remain memorable, before or after an election. One remarkable quality, among many others, is the way you relate to the youth. You instinctively touch this group, for you are in sync with their preoccupations. Education is one of your main centres of interest. In addition, your views remain delightfully refreshing throughout your life. Like John Fitzgerald Kennedy, your enthusiastic personality is attractive, bubbling, and fiery. This is why people forgive all your flaws, including your fickleness.

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

and Politics with Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

You are concerned by the political family your belong to. You are habitually drawn to a party which has counted for the history of your region, your relatives, or your ancestors. You are able to overcome your natural shyness if you must take up the torch. It is certain that you are not the most resistant one when you must continuously go from one meeting to another, or when you must occupy time-consuming top positions. However, you are very keen to stand up for vulnerable people, a task you accomplish very well because you are emotional and sensitive. You seek contact with crowds, not in order to galvanise them but to get to the core of the citizens’ daily preoccupations. You do not want power for the sake of power. Like Nelson Mandela, who had the Sun in the same sign as you, you find inequality shocking; your destiny may be to fight for Human Rights. You believe that Res Publica – the public good – is not a mere concept.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

and Politics with Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

You possess charisma, and you aspire to wield power. More often than not, your followers urge you to run for the top job because they are captivated by your magnetism. It is true that you make a deep impression on people, and that your self-confidence is reassuring. Who would hesitate to leave their fate in your hands? You can even manage to use your personal success, if any, to show your potential. Imposing your ideas is a matter of self-pride. You are neither a wimp nor a hypocrite. Your vision is clear and noble. However, you must be cautious not to fall into the trap of megalomania, or to believe too rapidly that you can win by crushing your opponents. You must perhaps learn that a defeat is always possible, and that afterwards you may get back more brilliantly. Like Barack Obama, your public speaking skills and your grandeur will remain in people’s minds for a long time. You will be missed.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

and Politics with Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Most of the time, you prefer to be the power behind the throne rather than the leader holding the reins of the country. Moreover, your intellectual capacities and your great erudition prevent you from harbouring strictly selfish ambitions. You are not an opportunist; besides, more than anything else, you enjoy serving a cause greater than yourself. You are convinced that your research work, your analytical skills, your attention to detail, as well as your objective and thought-out vision may constitute a considerable asset to improve things. The principle of service is essential for you, regarding both ideology and people. You may be blamed for being cold or technocratic. Figures being figures, you know how to interpret them. However, do not overlook the human factor. Like Mario Draghi, you can be a tremendously successful financial strategist. Especially during lean years.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

and Politics with Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

You gently make your way to the political world. Rather than wielding power as such, you are interested in people. You wish to please and at the same time to do the right thing, willing to iron out the wrinkles whenever necessary. You are regularly seen pacing up and down the corridor of the Parliament, holding long private conversations with your colleagues, with delegates, or even with your opponents. In meetings, you are among the first people who grant support. But someday, you will astonish those who do not realise who you really are. Then, your listening ability, your scale of values, your sense of justice, and your innate diplomacy will have the possibility to blossom. Your programme includes defending peace at all costs, and establishing equal opportunity. Like Mahatma Gandhi, you strive to impose the power of the weak.

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

and Politics with Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Obsessed by power, you? This could be the case, but always because you stand up for your beliefs. They are strong, for you have a passionate, uncompromising, and secret temperament. Therefore, it is driven by an intense inner fire that you step into the political arena. It is certain that you do not fear blows. Clever and far-sighted, you look for your opponents’ weak spots. Once you find them, you do not give up. While other people throw in the towel at the first setback, spurred by your tenacity, you never relinquish. Like General Charles de Gaulle, it is often in difficult or even impossible circumstances that you win by showing that resistance is possible and desirable. Once you reach the summit, everything can happen.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

and Politics with Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Looking far and big. This is in brief how you behave in the political field. You should leave to other people the task to collect signatures or to submit petitions. Your synthesis skills are strong, and you smartly use the groundwork, usually unattractive, of the militants in order to come to the net. You are a dissenter but also an opportunist in the good sense of the word. You succeed in imposing yourself thanks to your self-confidence and your benevolence. While people line up figures and resort to logics, you believe in charisma. And it works, because you fear nothing. You do not hesitate to look for funding, because you are pragmatic. You scum all the regions of your country, and you show that you are a worthy person beyond your frontiers. Very simply, you aim at achieving planetary fame! Like John Kerry, it is in international politics that you shine. Optimistic and inspired by great causes, you excel in diplomacy also.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

and Politics with Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Capricorn being by essence a political sign, you have a natural interest in public affairs. Since you are quite ambitious, it is out of the question to be satisfied with the role of a basic militant, and you definitely covet power. However, it is not for its personal and visible advantages, but because you are convinced that you can contribute to the nation’s social edification. You are driven by the sense of duty. If you must take an oath and swear that you will serve the best interests of your country, there is no doubt that you will devote yourself body and soul to your mission, of course for a long time. You are fundamentally honest, patriotic, and you put your pride at stake with each decision you make. If the economy improves, if the influence of your country increases worldwide, then you breathe better. However, you never relax. Like Anwar Sadat, you are prepared to receive the Nobel prize, despite your slightly austere or serious character.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

and Politics with Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

In politics, you are the troublemaker no one expects. You are an idealist, and you believe that nothing is never too wacky, since you seriously want to change the world. The slogan "Singing tomorrows" has probably been coined by someone like you. Your relation to power may be ambiguous. Indeed, you do not hesitate to overthrow all those in power. The role of the opponent is one of those which fit you best. Let us underline that many revolutionaries are born with the Sun in your sign. On the other hand, once you reach the summit, you promote tolerant and original ideas. You are willing to hold out your hand to your contenders, to listen to the civil society, and you dare to go off the beaten path. To sum up, you always do a lot of good for the establishment, as you treat everyone equally. Long before it became fashionable, you have battled against the elites. Like Abraham Lincoln, you would have abolished slavery.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

and Politics with Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

With your proverbial generosity, you accept to enter the political arena, provided the objective is to promote the public good. Spurred by a vivid impetus, you behave with empathy. The people see you as an inspiring example as well as a sort of messiah who can understand them and help the most destitute ones. This is your credo and your hobby horse, although you do not like blows. As a pacifist, you prefer to put forward your opinions with gentleness instead of with brutality. Since you are slightly superstitious, you may be able to throw up the towel when you get bogged down in your contradictions. You may experience a few, for you often opt for the easy way out, spurred by the exaggerate need to please and to be in agreement with the public. Be cautious, because this may backfire on you. In hindsight, you may choose to be an activist rather than to wield power. Like Mikhail Gorbachev, it is most likely that you are endowed with the subtleness which enables you to change the world if circumstances are favourable.
