David Cameron opened Pandora’s Box with the Brexit referendum and then slunk away after it turned into a can of viperous worms. Looked at one way he was the unwitting agent for what had to happen, a necessary step along the way of dismantling the UK’s sclerotic political system. Not what he intended but he threw the firecracker and chaos followed.
I was always puzzled by Cameron’s chart. 9 October 1966 5.30am London. The easy charm of Sun Venus in Libra and a self-satisfied Moon Jupiter in Leo; plus a flashy Mars in Leo in a showbizzy, loves-publicity square to Neptune – all make sense of what always seemed a lightweight, rather empty personality. But he also has Uranus Pluto in Virgo opposition Saturn in Pisces which is gritty, stubborn, innovative, keen to push back boundaries. And it never seemed to fit the rest of his chart.
What puzzled me at the time was his confidently jovial (Moon) Jupiter had moved by Solar Arc to conjunct his Uranus at Brexit in June 2016, which is usually interpreted as a lucky break and relief of tension. So I surmised he’d win. But in fact the relief appeared to be exiting number 10. Looked at another way it could be argued that finally his Uranus Pluto released its power, having been activated by Solar Arc Jupiter. Uranus Pluto can be a harbinger of chaos, or revolution, certainly an upsetter of the status-quo, bringing about the collapse of the old order.
His chart does fit the UK’s well with his Venus Sun conjunct the UK Ascendant; his Jupiter is the same degree as the UK’s in Leo and therefore conjunct his Moon; his Neptune like the UK is in Scorpio and his Fixed Mars in Leo square Neptune resonates to the UK’s Fixed Grand Cross.
But his wayward Uranus Pluto falls in the UK’s 12th, so his reforming drive is subversive, falling in the hidden 12th in his own as well as the UK’s chart. Out of his control and operating at an unconscious level, he pressed the button and up the balloon went.
His relationship chart with the UK does have an inventive, reforming composite Sun trine Moon, sextile Uranus; and a chained-together for-a-serious-purpose Saturn opposition Pluto.
His Harmonics are surprisingly strong for a personality who seems destined to disappear into the history books as a none-too-interesting PM. His leaving-a-legacy-for-history 17th harmonic has a powerful and destructive Sun, Jupiter, Mars Pluto. His get-it-together and dominating 5H is very strong; as is his wheel-of-fortune rise-and-fall 10H; and can-be-self-defeating 16H.
A mightier agent of the fates than he appeared to be.
