Horoscopes for the Chinese Nobel Prize Winner in 2010
UPDATE - In news dated today 29 October 2010, the press report that other dissident signatories of Chart 08 - which Mr. Liu Xiaobo co-authored - have been troubled by the authorities. It is said that the Nobel Prize winner's wife is kept incommunicada, as well as others who have signed this Charter.
The Award Chart - Advocacy of Human RightsThe New Moon was just past, in the sign of Libra, for diplomacy and advocates of peaceful debate. Mercury, for the teacher writer, is conjunct to Saturn, serious and wise, in Libra, the peace loving sign of the Zodiac, on the cusp of the Xth and XIth house, professional accomplishment in the sphere of humanity. It also shows the unease of the Chinese authorities with Venus retrograde conjunct Mars rising exactly on the Ascendant of the Chart.

Anger and JailThis prize is bound to provoke irritation, because of Mars on the ASC, and the attempt of the Chinese authorities to coerce the Nobel Prize authorities in not giving him the prize (Venus retrograde in Scorpio).
|There is also the presence of Lilith exactly conjunct the IC, in Pisces, giving this event a very large importance in the world. Lilith, the Black Moon, as the dark side of humanity (Pisces) in the collective psyche (IVth house), emphasizes the transformation of bad to good by an extraordinary individual fighting with encompassing love for humans (Pisces) freedom of expression (because Lilith will arrive in the IIIrd house within minutes of the announcement).|
A Distressed Wife
There is more somber expression of Lilith in this chart, as it seems that Mr. Liu Xiaobo's wife has suddenly disappeared from public sight, it seems by the will of her country's authorities, so that she cannot contact people and may not be able to visit her husband in prison to let him know of his receiving the Nobel Peace Prize.
Western ReactionsAs the conjunction of Jupiter and Uranus also takes place in Pisces in the IVth, it is possible that pressure by Western media or governments may help get him freed. Alas, the conjunction of Venus and Mars on the Ascendant does not bode too well for Mr. Liu Xiaobo, particularly when Venus becomes direct again in a few weeks' time. It is to be hoped that reason (Saturn in Libra) will help minimise the hardship for this man, but it is not sure.
Money, Money and Money AgainThe presence of Pluto in Capricorn, to a rather tight trine to Juno in Virgo, from the IInd to the IXth, may indicate that financial factors could play a role in his future well-being. The mode of expression of this money matter is not clear however, especially given the present climate of foreign exchange with respect to the few indispensable currencies of trade in the world. It could also concern the prize money itself. Finally, there are on-going talks for trade agreements between China and Norway, the country where the prize is awarded. The presence of the Chiron Neptune conjunction in the IIIrd house is witness to some secret talks that may not be helpful in this situation, given its exact square with Interamnia in the Ist.
Help for his FreedomThe Moon, in the XIth in Libra, just leaving the quincunx to Sedna in Taurus in the Descendant argues in favor of friends of his wife being able to offer help. Perhaps some international organization like Amnesty International or the International Committee of the Red Cross could bring their friendship and activities to the help of his wife, who knows?
Birth Chart of the Peace Prize WinnerA Stubborn Leader for Freedom of Speech
Mr. Liu Xiaobo was born on 28 December 1955 in Changchun, Jilin, China. He co-authored Charter 08 and was arrested for this.
Geocentric Birth Horoscope for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner
Heliocentric Birth Horoscope for the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize Winner
Mr. Liu Xiaobo's birth chart shows the steadfastness of a social activist with Sun, Mercury and Lilith in Capricorn, progressive ideas with Venus conjunct Chiron in Aquarius, social adaptability and charm with Moon in Gemini, a strong fighting spirit with Mars in Scorpio, very high ideals with, on the one side, Jupiter conjunct Pluto sextile Neptune, and this same conjunction semi-sextile Uranus on the other side. Saturn in Scorpio, square the Jupiter Pluto conjunction can be looked as a disregard for authoritarian figures, even if it means harm to himself. To a degree, it may mean jail sentences although one does not know the placement in houses since there is no precise time of birth. This is what has already happened to him several times.
Talking can be DangerousAs asteroid Interamnia is square Mercury, his speech or writing was going to cause him trouble at some point. Fortunately, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto are all part of a configuration contacting Lilith and it may be hoped that at some point he'll be freed - quite suddenly and unexpectedly at that. The Moon placement may not be accurate since the birth time is not known. However, the Moon in Gemini is either in contact with the South Node Ketu and that would mean misfortune, or with a quincunx to Mars in Scorpio (ill-chosen verbal or written fights, scandals or nefarious disclosures), or with Saturn in Libra (loss of emotions due to speech about peace). So his Moon was not helpful to his emotional or physical well-being, at the very least, because it allowed him to speak or write words that would be against many people's opinions - which is exactly what has happened to him over the years.
Understanding the SystemOn the other hand, being a Capricorn, he understands the workings of his authorities and might have stopped short of provoking worse anger than he has already done thereby probably saving his life, if not his liberty.
Selfless Love for the Mute PeopleMr. Liu Xiaobo's heliocentric chart is even more revealing of his hidden side: with a Venus in Pisces, outstanding love for his down trodden fellows; with Mercury in Aquarius, he uses wit and accuracy in his speech for democracy; with Mercury trine Mars in Libra - he fights for peace, and the same planet opposite a Jupiter Pluto conjunction in Leo, his high profile speeches are geared against dictatorships.
Synastry between the Award Chart and Mr. Xiaobo's Birth ChartA life at risk
The synastry between the geocentric charts of the award and of Mr. Xiaobo show that this prize is putting is life at risk. It will be even more so when transiting Pluto conjuncts his radical Sun on these three dates: 9 January 2011, 21 July 2011 and, finally, 10 November 2011. The transiting Chiron Saturn square also speaks of risks on or around 16 January 2011. Chiron was also transiting to the opposition of his Pluto and will become exact again on 15 January 2011. Both these powerful square were already operative in the last few months and it may be that his health has not been the best in the recent past, so a jail term would not help this. Similarly, the synastry between the heliocentric charts also show risks around 21 March 2011 and 19 November 2011.
Traffics of InfluenceThe heliocentric chart also shows quite clearly that his country's authorities bore pressure on the Nobel Prize Committee to try and influence it against giving hims the prize. That is seen with the opposition between the conjunct Jupiter Uranus on the last critical degrees of Pisces (ill-advised and last-ditch attemps) and Vesta (the flame of truth). This happened during the summer of 2010 but was only made public at the end of September. The said aspects occurred on 24 and 30 September 2010.
The Road to a Safe Haven
This man should be given fast and safe asylum very far from his birth country and provided with security measures for a long while. Whether he is freed before end 2011 or remains in jail, any organization or friendship that can check on him would be well advised to do what they can to ensure his well being on or around the above dates. The rest of the aspects are more or less OK, so it is hoped all ends well despite the risks outlined above.
With best wishes and kind thoughts to Mr. Liu Xiaobo.
