The wonderful Caroline Lucas and some astrology

CarolineLucas1As a result of recently reading her book “Honourable Friends? Parliament and the Fight for Change”, I now have even more respect for Britain’s only Green MP Caroline Lucas. As comedian and columnist Mark Steel observed, she has “brought politics into disrepute … she’s done all the things she promised to do!”. Over the last five years, through her consistently principled actions, she has stood out like a beacon of hope in British politics. She was named MP of the year in 2014, awarded for her work with minority and deprived communities.

A quick look at her astrological chart

An important feature of Caroline’s birth chart (born 9th December 1960, Malvern, time unknown) is a close aspect between Mars in Cancer and Saturn in Capricorn. Fighting for women’s rights, the protection of the environment and supporting the vulnerable in society are all perfect channels for her Mars in Cancer energy. This energy is directly opposed to Saturn in Capricorn, showing her struggles against the establishment. However, with Venus, Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn, Caroline is also quite capable of being part of the establishment herself, an outsider on the inside. Together with her almost certainly Moon in Leo (and perhaps even a revolutionary Moon conjunct Uranus in Leo), it is her positive and visionary Sagittarius Sun that truly inspires – “Where there is Caroline Lucas, there is hope” to quote George Monbiot. She often talks more sense than the rest of them put together. We need more like her, oh yes.

    As a Green Party supporter, great to hear all that positive stuff about Caroline Lucas.

      She is an inspiration. I’ve long thought that the Green Party have all the right ideas. As I’m sure you know Amanda, Britain is years behind many other countries when it comes to the environment and green issues. Not to mention the increasing social inequality caused by the particular version of short-sighted shareholder capitalism we have here… and so on. I like Russell Brand’s description of the Greens – a silver coin in a bucket full of shit!
