Like the hundred-headed Hydra, Steve Bannon’s wrecking-ball ambition never dies, just springs up elsewhere with a new initiative. He’s now intent on setting up a foundation in Brussels to support right-wing, anti-establishment groups in the run-up to the European Parliament election next May. “Right-wing populist nationalism is what will happen. That’s what will govern,” he said. “You’re going to have individual nation states with their own identities, their own borders.”
Over the past year, he has held talks with right-wing groups across the continent from Nigel Farage and members of Marine Le Pen’s Front National in the West, to Hungary’s Viktor Orban and the Polish populists in the East. He envisions a right-wing “supergroup” within the European Parliament with as many as a third of the lawmakers which would have the ability to seriously disrupt parliamentary proceedings, potentially granting Bannon huge power within the populist movement.
Born 27 November 1953 Norfolk, VA, he’s a fiery Sun Sagittarius with possibly a Leo Moon conjunct Pluto. What gives him his inflammatory rhetoric is a Cardinal T Square of Uranus opposition a Capricorn North Node square a showbizzy Mars Neptune in Libra. A focal point Cardinal Mars is reckless, openly confrontational and disruptive, revelling in head-on collisions, though has little staying power. Equally a focal point Cardinal Neptune is overly impatient and won’t stay the course to see visions take root, indulging in corner-cutting, quick n’ easy schemes that don’t involve long-term effort. His CV is littered with failures and multiple career changes. His rise-and-fall, self-defeating 10th Harmonic is strong.
The stars are not well-aligned for his grandiose venture with tr Neptune undercutting three of his midpoints till late 2019; a dashed-hopes tr Pluto square his Mars/Neptune till late 2019 as well, which tr Saturn will also square over the May election. He’ll get a battery recharge in 2020/21 but by 2021 he runs into a catastrophic triple hit of tr Pluto square his Mars/Saturn as well as make a devastating square to his Neptune running till late 2022. Plus a blocked Solar Arc Pluto conjunct his Saturn. Then he’ll no doubt dust himself off and be after another windmill to joust at.
