Billionaire Isabel dos Santos, Africa’s richest woman, has been accused of embezzlement and money laundering by prosecutors in Angola. She was controversially appointed head of the state oil firm by her father, then President, who himself was denounced as leading one of the most corrupt regimes in Africa, amassing wealth for his family and silencing his opposition. Angola has vast mineral and petroleum reserves but one of the lowest life expectancy rates in the world, with infant mortality among the highest. Nearly 70% of the population lives on less than $2 a day. She currently lives in the UK and denies everything.
Born 1 April 1973 Baku, Azerbaijan, she has an Air Fire chart with an Aries Sun Venus sitting as the driving planets on a wide-ish Air Grand Trine of an adventurous Mars Jupiter in Aquarius trine Saturn in Gemini with Pluto and Uranus in Libra. Her Sun Venus are also trine Neptune which in turn opposes Saturn and squares onto Moon Mercury in Pisces. An overdose of Air will make her emotionally detached; Fire will make her attention-seeking and entrepreneurial; and her only Water planets are in evasive Pisces. She has no Earth in her chart.
She is facing one major setback ahead from her Progressed Mars square her Neptune around now; with maybe problems from tr Neptune conjunct her Solar Arc Mars Jupiter over the next three year. But that apart is looking upbeat with tr Pluto conjunct two of her Jupiter midpoints till late 2021.
Her Sun Venus fall in Angola’s 8th house of business finances with her controlling Pluto in the Angola’s 2nd house; and her opportunistic Mars Jupiter opposition the Angola Saturn and square its Uranus Mercury.
The tragedy of Africa – first the colonials and then the gangster governments – with immense resources that could feed, educate and produce a decent standard of living for their populations.
