His life had all the elements of a Shakespearian epic – rise to fall, triumph to tragedy with Machiavellian machinations underfoot. Both the moment made the man and the man made the moment. His motto was to crash through or crash - he managed both. He was Edward Gough Whitlam, a political enigma whose greatest enduring legacy was creating a more just society, destroying a cultural cringe and making Australians proud to be Australian.

WHITLAM - PERSONALITY THROUGH PLANETS

Gough Whitlam was born in a newly built family home at 46 Rowlands St, East Kew on July 11 1916. It was a week before the worst military disaster in Australia’s history – the Battle of Fromelles – orchestrated under imperial command. In one night Australia lost more lives than the Korean and Vietnam Wars combined. 5,533 solidiers died in what the Australian Brigadier General Harold "Pompey" Elliott described as a tactical abortion. Did the infant Gough inherit the ‘zeitgeist’ of this time for all Australians?

His birth Sun was in patriotic Cancer and conjoined to responsible and administrative Saturn. Gough also had Mercury, Venus and Pluto in the sign of the natural nurturer. Cancerians have a sympathetic understanding of the value of heritage and home roots. His focused and transformative Scorpio Moon combined emotional commitment to the cause. In astrological evidence and real world actuality, Whitlam was the ultimate patriot.

He believed in an Australia as an independent sovereign nation rather than one of sibling servitude. Instead of selling off national assets for short-term gain, Whitlam was into buying back the farm for long-term prosperity. It was bound to create controversy in a country still struggling to find its own identity under the yoke of colonialist mentality and dominance of military alliances. Nixon was furious that Whitlam had the insolence to criticize US involvement in Vietnam.

DEFINING A NATIONAL IDENTITY

Whitlam inherited an Australia still paying homage to those who had ‘made it overseas’. Local media and national narrative were buried beneath imported cultural product and personalities. He created the Australian Film Commission and promoted a new wave in creative Australian art and literature. He replaced photos of the Queen with those of the Australian Prime Minister. ‘God Save The Queen’ made way for a new national anthem.

His penetrating Mercury Pluto combination said that to change a nation you have to change how its people perceive themselves. Old world titles such as Knights and Dames became Orders of Australia. Whitlam’s initial parliamentary act was to abolish conscription and pull Australia out of a destructive and divisive Vietnam War. It’s now well documented that his zeal for national self-determinism created apoplexy in Washington. Both the CIA and Britain’s M16 were on high alert for Australia’s first socialist government in twenty-three years.

PARTNERS AND POLITICS

It’s impossible to imagine Gough without the love of his life Margaret, born at 6.30 pm November 19 1919 in Sydney. They married at 4.30 pm on April 22 1942 as his Solar Arc Venus met his dreamtime Neptune. Her Scorpio Sun met his Scorpio Moon and their Mars’s were united. They truly were a loving couple together for just short of seventy years and having four children. He proudly called her ‘my best appointment’.

Gough Whitlam first became involved with the Australian Labor Party in 1943 while flying Lockheed bombers out of Darwin, as visionary Jupiter transited over his Sun. He joined the party in 1945 right on his accountable Saturn return, and as his Venus progressed back to the position it held at his birth. So began a second love affair with politics. His second Saturn return would occur in 1975 and bring his greatest political challenge.

Whitlam’s father Frederick (b April 3 1884) was a pioneer of international human rights and Australia’s Crown solicitor from 1936 to 1949. His influence played its part in Gough being admitted to the bar in the February of 1947. True to his home and hearth Cancerian calling the young Gough initially focused on landlord/tenant cases.

URANUS AND CAREER CHANGE

As revolutionary Uranus moved toward his Sun Saturn, Whitlam made the headlines for his legal prowess during a Royal Commission. It attracted the attention of the party powerbrokers. On November 29 1952 Gough Whitlam was nominated for the by-election seat of Werriwa. He won by a record margin with a swing of 12%. Twenty years later, as reformist Uranus squared the same Sun Saturn – he would be elected Prime Minister of Australia.

On November 11 1959, he was advised to stand for the deputy leadership of the Labor Party, securing this on March 7 1960. Progressed Mars was squaring his Sun Saturn and progressing Mercury joined his birth Mars. It was initially a party room battle for the man considered by many as an outsider. Here was a silvertail silk, a scholar of the classics, in a party of the working class.

Gough also possessed a withering wit and an ego proportionate to his 6 foot 4 inch stature. When asked once where he would like to be interred, Whitlam replied, ‘It doesn’t really matter…I’ll only be in there for three days.” His intellect had seen him twice win the Australia National Quiz title. His debating skills were the equal of Menzies, who set the benchmark on political debate.

STAR ON THE RISE

After Labor’s defeat in the 1963 elections, Whitlam’s star was literally on the rise. With Venus, the popularity planet, linking fortuitously to his birth Sun and Saturn, he was increasingly seen as the fresh Labor face of the future. Following a third electoral defeat in 1966 the aging Arthur Calwell made way for Whitlam as the new leader. By now his progressed Sun was in supportive trine to expansive and opportunistic Jupiter.

The Australian Federal election of October 25 1969 saw the Labor Party gain over 50% of the popular vote. It was Whitlam’s greatest single political triumph, despite narrowly losing the election due to the uneven seat distribution. Whitlam had achieved a 7% swing, the largest ever in a national vote.

After the election he became the first western diplomat to visit China. It was widely criticized at the time, with his Liberal opponents pulling out the familiar ‘reds under the beds’ scare campaign. But the US President Nixon followed eighteen months later. Whitlam was being seen as a man way ahead of his time. December 2 1972 would become his time and Australia celebrated.

Backed by a pervasive publicity campaign, Whitlam’s historic victory ushered in a new era. In the chaotic ensuing three years greater political reform was enacted than under any previous administration. His crash through or crash style was also putting establishment noses severely out of joint. Whitlam’s ambitious reforms of free education, universal health care and social justice required capital injection in an age when the western world was in an economic meltdown.

LOOKING BACK

In retrospect it can easily be seen how hard the Australian economy was hit by the 1973 OPEC crisis. Oil prices quadrupled and inflation soared to frightening figures. Even the US slid into deep recession with double-digit inflation rates and high unemployment by 1975. Great Britain’s simultaneous entry into the European Common market coinciding with Whitlam’s electoral victory also wrought a devastating effect on local agricultural exports.

The public, largely unaware of the intricacies of the international effect on Australia’s reactionary economy, held the government and their inflationary policies entirely to blame. Labor were unaccustomed to government, and Whitlam’s imperious manner didn’t help. Economic fears were fanned by conservative media barons bent on Whitlam’s demise. Ludicrous entities such as the John Singleton ‘Workers Party’ were formed. So biased was the press coverage that Murdoch’s own journalists went out on strike to protest the overriding editorial interference.

The final straw came when the government bypassed Treasury protocol seeking a $4 billion dollar loan in Arab petrodollars at cheaper interest rates than the traditional overseas banks. A ‘whatever it takes’ maneuvering of Senate seats by a scheming Queensland premier and a subsequent blocking of budget supply by the obstructionist Liberal Opposition set the scene for a political execution.

THE DISMISSAL

At 1.15 pm on November 11 1975 the Australian Prime Minister was removed from office by the Governor General Sir John Kerr. The dismissal came as Whitlam was offering a half-Senate election to break the impasse. Malcolm Fraser was sworn in as the new leader pending a December election. The treachery was the greatest constitutional crisis of Australian political history. It could have led to a revolution in the streets. It has forever steeled a cynicism against foreign intervention and media manipulation.

On the day of the Dismissal revolutionary Uranus in brooding Scorpio was involved in a challenging square to establishment Saturn in imperial Leo. The two fixed signs appropriately pictured the intransigence of the times. The planetary myth of father and son – Saturn mutilating Uranus – was enacted upon the leadership Midheaven of the Australian Federation horoscope. With underworld Pluto also squaring the Australian Sun the leader’s demise was an astrological certainty. Click here for the horoscope overlay.

Whitlam's Sun and Saturn opposed that of the Commonwealth of Australia. He was a man to challenge and change tradition. Throughout this purgative process Australia grew from political naivety into adulthood. His social reform was questioned, like his $1.3 million dollar purchase of Blue Poles. Today that artwork is valued at over $100 million. But it was Whitlam's investment in the lives of ordinary Australians that will be forever his enduring legacy. We came of age.

CHINA - INFRASTRUCTURE AND INVESTMENT BANK

On the morning of October 24 2014 – shortly after the Scorpio Solar Eclipse with Venus, twenty nations joined China as the founding co-signatories of the new Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank. The bank will have an initial capitalization of $50 billion dollars and may eventually rival the World Bank and Asian Development Bank for international lending.

Founding signatory countries were China, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Laos, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Oman, the Philippines, Qatar, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.

Australia was also invited and expressed initial interest. However, the US Secretary of State John Kerry pressured Prime Minister Tony Abbott out of the venture, involving Australia's greatest trading partner. Other notable absentees were Indonesia and South Korea, with the South Korean finance minister still considering joining at a later date.

The date and timing are significant. The astrologer researcher Edward Johndro in choosing a time for a corporation would examine the planet ruling the purpose of the corporation and see when it was conjunct or opposite an eclipse point – preferably a solar eclipse - and barring that check whether the planet was stationary.

The Asian Infrastructure and Investment Bank signing has Venus – planet of value – exactly at the eclipse point. This is also the degree that Mercury stationed at before turning retrograde on October 5. Mercury is the planet of business transactions and contracts. Mercury is now stationing before turning direct on the 26th. By choice or accident the time of this signing is astrologically auspicious.

Sagittarius or Sagittarius Rising: This is the week where you test-drive the machinery, see if the experiment works, or cleanup the aftermath. Another basic message is – would you do this a second time? And if you did it again what would you do to make it better? It’s essential to put something, or someone, to the test. On the financial front there can be benefits through your diligence. Hard work can turn something into a paying proposition, or your own labor can save you plenty of dollars.

Capricorn or Capricorn Rising: Feel like some action? I bet you do. Motivating Mars is back in your sign. It’s firing you up about something and it’s more than simply running around the block.

Could be that you’re hearing back around some of those proposals you’ve put out there, or there is an offer in the wind. A lot depends upon ‘connections’.

Aquarius or Aquarius Rising: How do you outgrow your career? It can be as easy as having a fallout with the boss. That’s not meant to scare you. Just that you know something is bound to change when the thrill is gone, or you admit it was never really there. The best-case scenario is finding something you love a lot more. So is it time for a work reappraisal? Only if you’re getting zero recognition or the pay is lousy. Otherwise seek to improve it.

Pisces or Pisces Rising: The pleasurable escape can be the irresistible temptation. The expressive Sun and romantic Venus are linking adventurously into your dreamtime Neptune. Who cares about reality – who invented that anyway? There’s also the feeling of - if you can afford it why not! That’s the only real concern, as reasoning Mercury does some straight thinking in your house of debt. You’ve been getting some great lessons on responsibility in the last two years. Now’s the time to put them to good use. For more click here for the monthlies.
