Boris Johnson, the conservative Mayor of London, is a Gemini born on June 19, 1964 in New York USA at 14.00 h. He was in the news lately, because he told a protesting cab driver to go away and die. That is maybe a surprising thing to do for a Mayor, but it’s not so surprising when you study his chart. There are a few explanations for the outburst. Mars rising before the Sun is always more aggressive and direct as others are. Eris in a key position doesn’t make it easy not to get mingled in disagreement. Here is the chart:
1 Mars in Gemini is the first outer planet that rises before his Sun, so that he first of all is direct (Mars) in communications (Gemini) and an activist (using words)
2. Mars is inconjunct the Scorpio Moon (when intents emotions get involved he may be too direct)
3. Eris is on the Descendant (there is always disagreement and discord on the horizon)
4. Eris is inconjunct Pluto (there is an overdose of intensity when there IS disagreement, with a price to pay).
5. Last but not least: Mercury is ‘calling’ (not making major aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees). He will communicate somehow, anyhow, and at any possible level… Boris Johnson was severely deaf as a child and quiet. Mercury is exactly trine Pholus, indication of a turning point in communications. He definitely had one!
Boris Johnson was first a journalist (Mercury! Later he went into politics. For politics in the chart we see Mercury/Saturn semi square Pluto (the combination of strategic communications that Is almost always there in the chart of a politician). Pluto is sextile his Midheaven. But somehow, anyhow, Boris Johnson remains a man of direct and fast communications.
Of course there is more to tell about the chart and life. I’d like to mention that puppeteer Bill Barretta (Muppets) was born on the same day and also in the United States. His way to communicate is also specialJ.
