Harjit Sajjan, an Indian-born Canadian Sikh has been appointed Minister for Defence in Justin Trudeau’s government. For 11 years he was with Vancouver Police latterly as a detective investigating organised crime. He served with distinction in Afghanistan winning medals and praise and was specially requested to join the US Command Team.
Born 6 September 1970 he has a Sun Mars in Virgo with Sun trine Saturn in Taurus. [It’s amazing how often in the same week chart similarities turn up – see Mother Teresa below]. His Saturn opposes Neptune in Scorpio in trine/sextile to Pluto Mercury in Virgo – so exceptionally hard-working, tough and idealistic.
He doesn’t look like having an easy entry into politics with jolts and jangles, frustrations in 2016 and some disappointments in 2017. Though perhaps Trudeau’s withdrawal from any involvement in the Middle East won’t suit him.
Sikhism is a monotheistic religion and the Sikhs were always renowned for their martial skills.
