R.I.P. Nelson Mandela, god what a giant of a human being. His signature astrological aspect was Jupiter conjunct Pluto. He was Cancerian with Moon in Scorpio and the North Node Rising in Sagittarius. How’s that for Singular Destiny? And Jupiter was the chart ruler, aligned with Under-Worldly Pluto. Such people create themselves. They are wealthy in money, soul, and influence.
When Galaxy King Jupiter aligns with Underworld Boss Pluto, the result is charisma, a potent will and often wealth. “Riches” is an oft-forgotten attribute of Pluto and Jupiter maxes out all that he touches. Jupiter-Pluto shows up a lot in people who are just magic with money – Bill Gates, Kris Jenner (even if you revile the Kardashian cult, you have to admit that KJ can generate a hot buck), Christine Lagarde, Warren Buffett and an array of people who inherit/acquire via lucre via strange means. If Jupiter-Pluto is not rich in money, they’re rich via some singular genius. Eg: Surrealist writer J.G Ballard, Picasso, Serena Williams.
And his elegance upon release from jail, his superior temperament when he could have come out and whipped the whole country into a bloody rebellion in five seconds flat, is a brilliant example of Haute Mars in Libra. In a world where it is SO easy to be insanely cynical about politicians, with good reason lol, Mandela was a beacon.
