Two persons in the news these days and the item is freedom or not: Aung San Suu Kyi and Radovan Karadžić. They were born on the same day and I don't have the hours of birth. Karadzic has been arrested yesterday. He was one of the most wanted war criminals. Like Aung San Suu Kyi he lived with limited freedom. As he was wanted since the 90's, he could not move freely and had to be vigilant. In 1990 Aung San Suu Kyi won the elections and that was the start of her detention. That is what Aung San Suu Kyi and Kardzic 'share': the restrictions. Here you see the chart of Aung.
My post about Aung yesterday:
"She has an oriental Uranus - planet of freedom and rebellion - (for an orientation on changing the world). Her Sun is conjunct Saturn/Uranus, in the middle of Saturn and Uranus. This points at the importance of the theme of limited freedom in her life...
Mercury is also prominent because of the position square Aries Point. The combination of Sun, Mercury and Uranus is the combination of the will (Sun) to have an independent (Uranus) opinion (Mercury)."
I also like to point at the Sun in their charts. The Sun does not make Ptolemaic aspects in sign or orb 5 degrees. The 'calling' Sun in their charts is telling us that they want to be noticed and that they might be a leader.
Aung San Suu Kyi, a non violent activist, was in the newspapers yesterday. Karadzic was arrested. The sun was semi square their oriental Uranus and highlighted issues of freedom. Within a year Uranus - prominent in their charts - will be square the natal and inconjunct the progressive Sun.
The birth hours of the two politicians are unknown. So we do not know the crucial placements, the degree of the Moon, the Ascendant or the Midheaven. That information is crucial. Birth charts, transits, progressions and solar return chart or solar arcs...they do not judge. Circumstances, culture, gender and genes have an important effect on what a person does with the characteristic that are given in the chart. Karadzic's father spent most of his life in jail, for example. And Aung's father is an honoured general.
WHAT THEY (DON'T) SHARE...
The difference in their lives is clear. Karadzic is responsible for the death of thousands of people. Aung is non violent. But there are also many things that they have in common. She is a writer. Karadzic is a poet (notice Mercury square Neptune). And both spent many years in house arrest. Aung in her house. Karadzic in his region, hiding from the authorities.
Update: 30th July 2008
I heard the helicopters during the move mr. Karadzic from Rotterdam Airport to his prison in Scheveningen (The Hague, Netherlands) and it crossed my mind that one can be an involuntary international with Jupiter calling, like Karadzic has...
