Here are a couple of birth charts that we looked at as part of our evening exploring the relationship between Venus & Mars, with the two planets conjunct in the evening sky. Where else would you read Mohandas Gandhi and Naomi Campbell in the same sentence ? The Scorpio version of this conjunction is rather different to the Gemini one. The pacifist imprisoned Myanmar opposition leader Aung Sung Suu Kyi also has a Venus-Mars conjunction (in Taurus).
Pakistan and India both formally gained independence from Britain at 00:00 hrs on 15 August 1947. However the most recent incarnation of Pakistan is the Islamic Republic that was formally established at 7:00 AM on 23 March 1956. It’s been suggested that the selection of a time and date may have been influenced by astrological advice. Note that the current T-square (Jupiter/Uranus opposite Saturn squared by Pluto) is transiting this chart’s Sun. Saturn will transit the ascendant late October, Uranus will not complete its transit of the Sun until early 2012, while Pluto will move right onto its Midheaven for the next couple of years, so Pakistan is likely to remain prominent in the news, especially over Pluto-related issues.
