If the army had chosen to, it could have put down the protests in Egypt very easily, and Mubarak would still be in power. I don’t know why it didn’t, but looking at Egypt’s chart, you can see the Moon in the 6th House. The Moon is the people, and the 6th House is the Armed Services. So the people and the army have a close connection in Egypt, which is at odds with the leader: the Moon is in challenging aspect to the Sun (the leader).
Moreover, the Moon and the 6th House Cusp are in the non-violent sign of Virgo. So we saw the will of the people enacted in a relatively peaceful way with the co-operation of the army.
Of course, few leaders go willingly, but it’s as though the fixed grip of Taurus/Scorpio eventually attracts the crude power struggle necessary to evict them.
Cameron also has Venus (popularity) in Libra, so it is going to be interesting to see how this plays out with the inevitably unpopular spending cuts he is enacting. Librans can be tough (the iron fist in the velvet glove), but they also want to be liked.
The NHS was under continuous pressure to reform and to meet targets under Labour, and now the Tories are doing it all over again. You talk to anyone who works in the NHS and they’ve been feeling under a lot of pressure for years, and are not happy about it. With Virgo Rising and Saturn-Chiron in the 6th House, the Health Service is inevitably important to Cameron. In the UK Chart, Uranus has been passing through the 6th House for the last 5 years (and approaching it for a couple of years before that) and will not leave for another 2 years. So the unsettling change is set to continue, and is likely if anything to get harsher and more radical as Uranus moves from Pisces to Aries.
(It is ironic that you find both the NHS and the army in the 6th House of health and service. It is because the army is part of the armed services - it is there to serve the country.)
Gemini, however, is light and dark, and we see the other side of this with Italy’s Sun being in the 8th (Pluto’s) House, and Moon and Ascendant in Scorpio. Underneath the fun and the clowning lies the Mafia. Berlusconi himself has Venus in Scorpio in the 2nd House of money, in square to Pluto. This gives that mixture of wealth, sex, popular appeal and corruption that we see in him.
Berlusconi was briefly PM in 1994, but his real period in power has been on and off since 2001, as Pluto has successively squared his Moon-Saturn, hard-aspected his Angles and is now squaring his Sun. Like Margaret Thatcher, it has been transiting Pluto that has put him in power and kept him in power, and again like Thatcher, as these transits come to an end (which they are currently doing), we will probably see him finally fall from power.
