Miguel Díaz-Canel has been sworn in as Cuba’s new president, replacing Raúl Castro who took over from Fidel in 2006 and is the first non-Castro to head the nation since the 1959 revolution. He has worked his way up through the Communist Party and not expected to make radical changes, although he did at one point champion LGBT rights.
Born 20 April 1960, he is a Sun Taurus in an Earth Grand Trine to Pluto in Virgo and Jupiter in Capricorn, formed into a Kite by Sun opposition Neptune – so practical, confident and following a vision. He’s also got a Yod of Mars in Pisces sextile Saturn in Capricorn inconjunct Uranus, which doesn’t quite fit with his party technocrat image since such a focal point Uranus can be rebellious, wilful and a trailblazer – perhaps Cuba’s outsider status soaked it up. He will be a catalyst for change but if mishandled it could prove divisive.
Tr Uranus is about to conjunct his Sun as he steps into a new role and lifestyle. But his Term chart, 19 April 2018 around 9.30am suggests what lies ahead will not be plain sailing. Saturn is conjunct Mars for difficulties, setbacks and harsh conditions; and Mars is also conjunct Pluto drawing to exact in four years’ time which suggests the intervening period will be frustrated, trapped and high risk. Plus a disruptive Sun Uranus. And if the time is right a lacklustre |Neptune in the 10th.
Anyone has an accurate swearing in time gratefully received.
