Mohamed Al-Fayed (January 27, 1929)
You can’t blame the man: when he was born, Egypt was part of the Middle East protectorate of the United Kingdom. He would have seen where the money was. A boy can always dream, can’t he?
There are a couple of things about this chart that need clarifying. Al-Fayed claims to have been born in 1933, but official documents suggest that 1929 is the more accurate. I have rectified the timing to have Venus be at 25 years when he was first married to the mother of his son, Dodi. Oddly enough, that made the aspect between the Sun and the Moon exceed the degrees that would have made them inconjunct. But then, the inconjunct between Mercury and the Ascendant becomes prominent. But is it real?
Mercury Inconjunct Ascendant
You are likely to have some problems, but not serious one, in communicating with others. The problem is that people’s first impression of you may not fit in with what you say or your manner of thinking and speaking. People tend to hear what they expect to hear, and they may not listen to you as carefully as they should. So you will have to be as clear as possible and insist that others listen to what you are really saying. If others do not understand you, it is up to you to set them straight.
This pattern also works in reverse in that what you say may make people respond in ways that you can’t accept. For example, you may be outspoken and frank but dislike it when others are, preferring to be treated gently and sensitively.
(This brings to mind his crusade to make the public aware that the accident that caused Diana’s and Dodi’s deaths was an assassination by the British authorities.)
Unsurprisingly, the jury is still out on that idea.
