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

Few things are more challenging than finding a way to escape a situation or, possibly, an individual you want to avoid, no matter what. Being ruled by the charming Venus, you’ll always seek a gracious way out. While this works with most, dealing with certain individuals requires a tough, no nonsense approach. They count on the fact few are willing to take a tough line so, mostly, do as they please. Be one of the few who stands up for yourself. It will be like magic.
