The Falklands crisis succeeded, among other things, in thrustin obscure specks of earth into the limelight, and revived (in Washington) speculations whether Alejandro Orfila, the secretary of the Organization of American States (OAS), might become the president of Argentina. When asked about such a possibility, Orfila laughs, and states that he does not pay any attention to such rumors, but his astrological chart indicates that maybe he should.

Alejandro Orfila was born on March 9, 1925, and has his Sun in Pisces. In fact, he has a stellium in Pisces (three or more planets, besides the Sun, in the same sign), and this Pisces stellium is extremely well supported by the rest of his planets. Such a chart indicates a very strong individual, totally integrated, who is compassionate, kind, idealistic, "soulful" but far from being a "patsy." He is very pragmatic, with his feet planted firmly on the ground.

It is a chart of an energetic man who thrives on overcoming obstacles and challenges because they represent to him an opportunity to use his creativity, originally and inventiveness.

This is a chart of an intuitive and perceptive man, so much so that it borders on psychic ability. He listens not only to what people say, but also to how they say it. The intonation is very important to him and no one should ever attempt to deceive him, for he will sense a lie immediately.

Despite the Piscean influence that makes him gentle, open, affable, accessible, ocnsiderate and willing to discuss freely many things with many people, Orfila is, nevertheless, a private man, and he reveals the things that matter to him the most to only a few tested friends.

If Orfila were to become the Argentine president he would be a good one. Since his chart is balanced and well-organized, he would be both compassionate and practical. He would listen, but also would act and stick to his decisions. He is not a man of rash judgements and of precipitous action. If there is a problem on his chart, it comes from his over-optimism about how much he can accomplish in any 24-hour period (he probably plans to do too much all the time).

His chart indicates big changes in his life, which will occur between November of this year and the spring of 1983. There is a change in his career that is sudden and unexpected and creates quite a stir. This change is repeated on his wife's chart, and affects her profoundly. Orfila's chart is tied up with the chart of Gen. Galtieri, but the tie is amicable. Some changes take place on both of their charts within the next two months, but those changes are more of a prelude of things to come than immediate ones.

As to the Falklands affair, I mentioned before that Argentina attacked under retrograde Mars, while Britain fired the first shots under the same aspect. Therefore, both parties shall emerge from that conflict worse off that before without anything being really solved.

The charts of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher and of Gen. Glatieri indicate that Thatcher faces more problems than the general. This seems to indicate that Thatcher will fare much worse in this exchange than is presently suspected.

On the basis of those two charts, the United States made an error by supporting either one. Their charts are so similar--as to remind on of marital partners--and one should never take sides in a marital squabble, for sooner or later they will make up and the third party becomes the villian to both.

But with the karmic links tying all those charts and being activated at the present, the Destiny is being emphasized, rather than any personal will. This brings to my mind the statement of English historian Arnold J. Toynbee, who said that history unfolds itself as it must and the leaders are but the instruments chosen at the given time to bring about this predistined unfolding of events.
