Astrological Profiles of Prominence – UK Prime Minister David Cameron
‘It is a complete lack of responsibility in parts of our society, people allowed to feel the world owes them something, that their rights outweigh their responsibilities and their actions do not have consequences.’ – David Cameron
‘… when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.’ – Thomas Jefferson on the People and Revolution
David Cameron’s second house is a prime example of the power of the South Node to powerfully unleash the negative aspects of a planetary energy to the demise of the native. Born as a Sun Sign Libran with Libra Rising, Cameron’s second house is occupied by both Neptune and the South Node, both in the sign of Scorpio.
The Nodes, in astrology, exhibit the interplay of karma. From the area of the chart marked by the South Node, one can clearly understand the karma of the past that the individual is here to work through, if they are Conscious. For one who speaks so sharply of others feeling that they are owed something by the world, Cameron has seemingly experienced a life of entitlement with no personal subjective experience of the hardship of poverty.
The second house, in a chart is symbolic of wealth. Coming from a wealthy family, Cameron does not truly understand the plight of the poor. He would do well to heed the South Node’s karmic lesson that wealth and power should not make one Being more entitled to a life of comfort than another.
In addition to being significant of wealth, an individual’s propensity for words can also be understood from the perspective of the second house. Neptune, when functioning in a negative polarity, is associated with delusion. From a Vedic perspective, the South Node, also called the Dragon’s Tail has the propensity to send the energies of other planets spiralling out of control. The Tail, separated from the head, is devoid of common sense. Cameron’s words come merely from his own perspective with no true relation to the perceptions of others.
With Neptune and the South Node occupying the lunar mansion of Vishakha, two qualities come to the forefront of Cameron’s words. Vishakha is connected to patience and also on a certain level to dualistic energy. His words regarding the plight of others exhibit a high degree of social intolerance and classism. Additionally, it would seem that Mr. Cameron’s words are designed to mask his true intent, to shift responsibility for difficulties in the UK on to others; first with the rioters, then the police.
The Sun and Venus conjunct each other in David’s first house. The Sun and Venus, unless well-tempered, can each feed into the other’s tendency towards vanity, both being highly expressive planets. When a planet nears the Sun, its energy becomes combust and thereby cannot function in quite as positive a polarity as it might otherwise do. Bolstered by the energy of the first house, self-reflection and humility are not high on Cameron’s agenda. With both in the lunar mansion of Hasta, influenced by an eleventh house moon, itself the ruler of Hasta. the prime minister is highly ambitious, his vanity exuding more influence over him as he likely sees himself as more refined, and the rioters as rude and barbaric.
To be fair to Mr. Cameron, he has never had the experience of the lifestyle that ‘others’ lead. Therefore, it is highly difficult for him to be fair to their perception. But, we all have to confront our karma sometime. And, as Saturn is presently transiting his natal Sun and Venus, he will necessarily need to develop humility to survive.
There is presently a triple conjunction of the Sun, Venus and Mercury occurring by transit to David Cameron’s house of ambition and aspiration, the eleventh house, in the prideful sign of Leo. All three are closing in on Cameron’s arrogant Mars, also in Leo. Residing in the lunar mansion of Magha, Cameron’s Mars exhibits the tendency to not know when to stop. Magha can be strongly connected to pride, especially racial. As the summer intensifies, every time Mr. Cameron opens his Neptune conjunct South Node mouth, he is likely to receive not only a karmic foot in the mouth, but also a sharp slap in the face. He would do well to pause for reflection, and humility, before speaking.
