Rwanda – an infinite presidency

Rwandans appear to have voted overwhelmingly to allow President Paul Kagame to extend his term in office, which could see him in situ till 2034. He has held power since 1994, when his rebel force entered the capital Kigali to end the country’s genocide. The US and other Western donors are unhappy at the prospect, saying younger leaders must be encouraged; and rights groups accuse the government of stifling the media and political opposition.

His Presidential chart from 24 March 2000 has a controlling Sun trine Pluto, sextile Neptune – so inclining towards megalomania. With a determined, at times, ruthless, Fixed T Square of Neptune opposition a Leo North Node square Mars in Taurus. With an aiming-for-the-sun Jupiter Saturn conjunction in Taurus.
That chart is having a tough struggle, setbacks and uncertainty through 2016 with tr Pluto trine Saturn and tr Neptune square and tr Saturn conjunct Pluto. Though when it hits real problems are in 2018 with explosive tr Uranus conjunct the Mars.

Paul Kagame, 23 Oct 1957, is a Sun Mercury in Libra conjunct Neptune in Scorpio; with Mars Jupiter conjunct in Libra; and Venus Saturn in Sagittarius trine Uranus. So he has a vision, confidence aplenty, is determined in his opinions but a good innovator as well. He looks confused, undermined through parts of 2016 with tr Neptune square his Saturn; an insecure tr Uranus opposition his Mars. He’ll be pushing hard, perhaps over confidently and sometimes crossing lines of law or morality with tr Pluto square his Jupiter. There’s a considerable jolt for him late 2016/early 2015; and then a risky, blocked two years in 2017/18 with tr Pluto square his Mars.

The Rwanda independence 1 July 1962 chart looks unsettled for two years with the tr Neptune square tr Saturn hitting on the Pluto opposition Jupiter in Pisces, which could bring economic problems.
