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

Appealing as life proceeding smoothly may be, it’s unrealistic. What’s more, we learn more from challenges than from periods when events flow from one easily organised arrangement to the next. Bear this in mind when the twists and turns indicted by your birthday chart arise. While by no means will anything be a serious problem, each will call on some side of your nature, from your inventiveness, to creativity to your intuition. And that, in turn, will help you appreciate what you already know, and extend your capacity for kindness and wisdom.
