Nicolas Sarkozy 's lovelife

In ISAR's ezine of January 8 French astrologer Nathalie Bossiere provided the birthdata for both Carla Bruni as well as for Cecilia Sarkozy whom Nicolas divorced soon after his election as French president in 2007.

Nicolas Sarkozy : January 28, 1955, 22.00 pm MET France,
Carla Bruni:  December 23, 1967, Turin, Italy, 18.10 pm MET
Cecilia Sarkozy: December 12, 1957, 23.55 pm MET, Paris, France

I am not going to look indepth at their natal charts, synastry or composites but instead will have a quick look at their respective Venus personare charts. (Venus Personare charts are to be the subject of one of my talks at UAC in Denver in May). 

Venus personare charts give a quick view at just the love life of an individual, nothing more, nothing less though. It is a pretty precise chart, which, when using KOCH houses, can be measured for their accuracy by having Saturn and Pluto transits go through the houses. 

From the simple fact that Carla is 10 years younger than Cecilia, has been a topmodel and an actress, I presume that Nicolas Sarkozy goes after an ego boost falling in love at his age with a much younger person, not an uncommon feature, for the feeling of youth  and still "counting" is then rejuvenated  rather than the onset of middle age, which is very hard to take in one's fifties. 

And sure enough, the Venus personare of Nicolas Sarkozy shows macho type behaviour: 

For what we see here is Mars in Scorpio right on the Ascendant, square Uranus  (do I need to describe that?). There is also sensitivity to matters of intimacy with Saturn in Scorpio in the first house square Pluto in the 10th.  In itself Venus in Capricorn is "faithful" enough, but it is also placed in the 3rd house giving it a Gemini flavour (Cecilia's Ascendant is Gemini). 

The Saturn-Neptune opposition of the previous winter was right across the IC-MC axis of his Venus personare chart suggesting that the split with Cecilia was already apparent over a year ago.

The Venus personare of Cecilia: 

Cecilia must be used to sudden and unexpected ruptures from males in her love-life with a Sun-Venus conjunction in Aquarius in the 10th, opposite Uranus in the 4th.  Pluto is dominant in the 4th, squaring the Ascendant, meaning that she must have been thrown back in on herself quite often in her love life (due to work related issues as well). In 2007 Pluto transit changed house, and Pluto changing house is not only an incredible shift in our natal charts and personal lives, for when they occur in personare charts, the same deep shifts happen. A new issue, Pluto in the 8th and power and powerlessness is her next Pluto process. Saturn transited the IC in 2005 suggesting that the marriage was already over at that time. In September 2007 Saturn transited Pluto in the 4th itself. 

The Venus personare of Carla Bruni: 

Venus is flamboyantly in Sagittarius squaring Pluto and Jupiter in the 9th house. Pluto transited Venus already in 2006, and is squaring Jupiter (overconfidence and extreme happiness), from December 2007, and 2 more times in 2008. In itself she could --with the Sun conjunct cusp 12 -- fall for a secret lover, but with too much 9th house emphasis, especially right now with Saturn transiting the 9th house as well, a foreign lover, another country,politics and being publicized is fitting. 

(Personare charts can be calculated on - the Pathfinder astrology program has a new function these days quickly calculating the data for all personare charts).
