Gordon Brown shouted:”You ruined my life” to Tony Blair. That is what the newspapers tell us. Read it here…
Did, by any chance, Tony Blair ruin the life of Gordon Brown? Perhaps. With Mars inconjunct Saturn and Moon opposition Moon there are enough problems to solve between then, in spite of the Venus and Jupiter of Blair. It seems to be a rather complicated relationship.
I have experienced the effect of Mars-Saturn and I am certain that it is a destructive combination in synastry. Mars is teasing; Saturn is putting down (see Cafe Astrology about the synastry of Mars and Saturn for more). Add just a little bit of aggression, a knife or a gun and the theme of death can manifest itself. It is difficult to see who 'done it' when Mars-Saturn hurts. I have two more examples of the Saturn-person being attacked.
1. Amy Bishop's Mars was square the Saturn of two of her victims.
2. Another example of Mars-Saturn synastry is the story about the Detroit hero. The Mars of Jasper is conjunct the Saturn of Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab and the Mars of Umar is inconjunct the Saturn of Jasper. They also share a Mars-Saturn aspect.
Maby it is rather hard to see who is the victim. It depends. But the examples above and my own experience is that Saturn is the one getting hurt and Mars is the one who hits or hurts, the actor. It is (sometimes litteraly) deathly and killing. In the synastry between Gordon and Tony Gordon is Mars and Tony is Saturn, but...there is an inconjunction. And an inconjunction with Saturn shows disproportionate disadvantage and restrictions without balance. Mars inconjunct Saturn is a bad aspect in synastry. A deathly serious matter (Mars-Saturn) migth have caused that the two are at cross-purposes ever since. Of course, that is not all.
Their Moon signs don't match. Brown's Moon is in the royal and sophisticated Leo, while Blair's is in the rather 'indifferent' Aquarius. The Moon in Leo needs to be the boss and take the lead and all the while Tony Blair was the man in charge. Also, their Suns are 75 degrees apart (who is the boss, that is the question, again).
So in general, even though there is a basic sympathy the men have a competition problem and they have such different kind of styles and ways to react, that it will be hard for them to join the same family or party. And that is what they did:).
