David Duke, former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, is one of more than 20 candidates seeking a Senate seat in Louisiana.

Born 1 July 1950 11.37am in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he’s a Sun Uranus in Cancer square Mars Neptune in Libra and trine Jupiter in Pisces, so a maverick, publicity-hungry and confident.

Mercifully he looks to be sinking in 2017 with tr Neptune opposition his Saturn; with confusion this month and across Oct/Nov as tr Pluto squares his Neptune. With worse in 2018 as his Solar Arc Sun is conjunct his Saturn. Though tr Jupiter crossing his Ascendant from this August will no doubt give him a confidence lift to step out into the spotlight briefly.
