A historic moment for China yesterday as President Xi Jinping strengthened his control over his 1.4 billion population and had his Thoughts written into the constitution, an honour previously reserved only for Mao Tse Tung and Deng Xiaoping. He stands for a socialism that is in contrast to western liberalism, democracy and capitalism; and the likelihood is he will try to remain on the throne for as long as his health holds out.
Xi Jinping, 1 June 1953, has a much more Mutable/flexible and Cardinal/got-initiative chart than his predecessors with Sun, confident and lucky Jupiter, Mercury and Mars in Gemini and a Cardinal Grand Cross of Saturn Neptune in Libra opposition Venus square Uranus opposition a Capricorn Moon. Mao, a Sun Capricorn had a ferociously determined Mars in Scorpio opposition Jupiter in Taurus; Deng Xiaoping was a Sun Mars in Leo with Saturn in Aquarius and Jupiter in Taurus so much more Fixed and enduring.
Xi Jinping’s Presidency chart, 14 March 2013 11.51am Beijing, is also highly Mutable with the Sun and three other planets in Pisces and Jupiter in Gemini, plus a determinedly revolutionary Uranus Mars in Aries square Pluto. But what marks it out as special is a Yod of grittily-persevering Saturn sextile Pluto inconjunct Jupiter. Such a focal point Jupiter can have a significant impact on society, rarely doubts the rightness of their beliefs and actions, but can be undone by the need for personal power and glory.
Despite all the adulation, his presidency chart isn’t looking too cheerful with tr Neptune conjunct the midheaven till late 2018 and square the Solar Arc Jupiter through this year which can produce a bubble of ‘false happiness’.
His own personal chart looks confused and beleaguered through 2018/19 with tr Pluto square the Saturn Neptune; and on a panicky slide in 2020/21 with Solar Uranus and tr Neptune square his Mars.
The China 1 October 1949 3.15pm chart does have the Solar Arc MC conjunct the Ascendant exactly now which is a significant marker for the country’s image and direction. But there’s also Solar Arc Uranus opposition the 8th house Saturn now, with tr Saturn aiming to square the 8th house Sun, Mercury, Neptune and oppose Uranus from this New Year onwards until early 2019, which suggests attempts to get the China internal debt problem under control has a way to go. There will be a surge of confidence and success come 2019/2020 with tr Pluto conjunct the China Jupiter in Capricorn; but also emotional distress in 2020 as Solar Arc Moon opposes Neptune.
Xi Jinping has an argumentative interface with Trump with his Mars Mercury in Gemini conjunct Trump’s Sun Uranus opposition Moon; and Xi’s Pluto conjunct Trump’s Mars and square his MC. That relationship could flare from early this December through January 2018 with tr Uranus square the composite Mars; and is certainly on the slide through mid 2018 onwards.
More to the point the USA/China relationship chart does look aggravated this December and on and off through 2018 with tr Pluto opposition the composite Mars; and the present uneasy status quo will be overturned in 2019 with tr Uranus opposition the composite Pluto – though that can go either way, positive as well as negative.
