The Dalai Lama

The Dalai Lama


An astrologer examining the birth chart of the 14th Dalai Lama would notice two things. First, while he was born under the sensitive Cancer, the planet of expression, Mercury, is powerfully placed in its own sign, Gemini. And second, the businesslike Saturn is in the visionary Pisces and exactly opposite the idealistic Neptune, a position common to high achievers in business; it indicates an ability to turn adversity into opportunity. Having faced exile from his country, he’s employed that strong Mercury not just highlight his cause – returning to Tibet – but to address general human rights issues. These efforts were recognised by the Nobel peace prize in 1989. Since then, however, he’s sent his message via numerous books, many of which have found their way to the Best Seller list. While his superbly placed Mercury enables him to organises his thoughts well, it’s the planets in the intuitive water signs that have drawn a larger public to read books such as The Meaning of Life. And this suggests that it’s not his words, but the compassion behind them, that hone them into a tool for transformation.

Birthday Stars

The focus in your birthday chart is on details, both in life’s joys and, in certain matters, its challenges. Thinking back, you’ll realise that if you’d spotted certain minor problems or, equally, simple but promising ideas, things would have gone very differently. This is true now. Amazingly, in some matters you can return to the past, and restore an idea or offer. However, those concepts that involve the future will be just as crucial. The challenge isn’t spotting them, but taking action as soon as you can.
