David Cameron (for readers who aren't British) has been the leader of the Tory Party since the end of last year, and may win the next general election. He was born 9th Oct 1966, at 5.55am, London.
I have had some debate over his birth time. My original source was Annabel Herriott, who buttonholed him at the last Tory conference, and he said 6am. Which, of course, is probably one of those rounded-up times. Recently a friend of hers who knew Cameron's secretary got her to ring his mother and ask! Back came 5.55am. I find birthtimes often work better a few mins before the given time, my theory being that the time would be recorded once the baby is done and dusted, rather then the moment it emerges.
The reason it matters so much with DC is that his ASC could be either Virgo or Libra. 5.51am is Virgo, 5.52am is Libra. I favour Virgo for a number of reasons.
We can all see the Libran smoothness and tactical fence-sitting, but I think that is adequately explained by his Sun conjunct Venus in Libra. He is not, however, just a fence sitter. He is also being incredibly careful and thorough about policy. Zac Goldsmith, the environmental campaigner, recently said that the Tories currently have 150 people working on their environmental policy. This is Virgo.
DC is the first leader of either of the 2 major parties to come from the mid-to-late sixties generation, when Uranus was conjunct Pluto in Virgo, opposite Saturn conjunct Chiron in Pisces. He therefore represents a whole new spirit in British politics. If his ASC is in late Virgo, then this new Zeitgeist just about conjoins his ASC/DESC axis, which it doesn't if his ASC is early Libra. The seriousness with which he is taking environmental issues suggests that he does indeed embody this new Zeitgeist, he is a true child of the sixties, and Uranus-like it is coming not from Labour, where we would expect it, but from the Tories. Labour does not have a monopoly on idealism.
Another factor in favour of DC having Virgo Rising is his Transits. We should expect a major transit in his chart at the moment, due to his becoming leader of the Tories last year. With 1 Libra Rising, there is no transit - only the very early stages of a square from Pluto to the ASC. With late Virgo Rising, tr Pluto is still in the early stages of squaring the ASC, but it is in sign, and more importantly, the current Pluto square to his Uranus-Pluto opp Saturn-Chiron feeds through to his ASC in late Virgo, and becomes a powerful personal, rather than just generational, transit. Pluto, which addresses issues of power, is describing the emergence of the 1960s revolutionary idealism in to British politics. Interesting times.
Like Tony Blair 12 years ago, DC's leadership of the Tories has so far been charmed. As Pluto moves to exactly square his ASC over the next couple of years, we can expect to see his authority within the party, and his chances of winning the next election, strengthening. His Progressed Sun-Moon cycle is moving towards an opening square over the next couple of years, which suggests him really getting into his stride.
DC is smooth, he is charming, he has a grasp of the future, and he could well generate some sound, well-worked out policies. And he also has Mercury in Scorpio square to a Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Leo. I don't want to criticise someone that I don't know very well, but he is a politician, and politicians will say one thing and mean another, they have hidden agendas, and they get inflated by power. Mercury in Scorpio square Moon-Jupiter in Leo. Be warned.
Interestingly, Margaret Thatcher also has Sun in Libra and Moon in Leo. What this means, if anything, is hard to say. He is currently distancing himself from her, e.g. his criticism the other day of the poll tax in Scotland. But, like Tony Blair, he may turn out more like her than we would think. Mercury in Scorpio square Moon-Jupiter in Leo. At the same time, though Thatcher can seem a bogeywoman, her policies have become the centre ground, and Labour has not reversed them - with e.g. its privatisation within the NHS, it has been extending her policies.
