Neo-conservatism and Jonathan Krohn

I don't know if you've heard of this young man, I've only recently found out about him myself. He is a 14-year-old boy who has written a book called "Define Conservatism" What's striking about him is not only the fact that he is supposed to be too young to be interested in politics, but that he has adopted conservative values and principles, which is a rare phenomenon at his age. There must be a prominent Saturn there, wouldn't you think? You would be right.

Since I don't have a birth time, I erected a noon chart at Astrodienst. We may not have house cusps, but conclusions can be drawn from this chart, because it speaks for itself. First of all, he belongs to the Uranus/Neptune generation in Capricorn. This is not a metaphysical generation that is searching for God somewhere above the clouds. God (Neptune) can be found here, on earth (Capricorn), we just have to revolutionize (Uranus) the system and the way we view things. We must have rules and principles in order to avoid chaos (Capricorn), but we must make the necessary changes (Uranus) to ensure the survival of the system.
Why him? Why was it he that came forward? After all, he shares the same configuration with a great number of people. Yes, but he is the one who was born under a New Moon in Pisces. New Moon people are very focused on their goals, because their emotional nature (Moon) is not strong enough to get in the way of where they are going (Sun). He is one of the spokesmen of his generation and with the New Moon being in Pisces square Jupiter in Sagittarius, he is not only a spokesman, but a Messiah. Politics is a form of religion for him, but we are talking about a saturnian religion, which becomes even more evident considering Saturn is conjunct this New Moon. What's more, his personal values, what he, personally, finds beautiful (Venus) is also saturnine, with Venus conjunct Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn. His Mercury is also under the influence of Saturn, being in Aquarius, the other Saturn-ruled sign. If you want to take Uranus as the ruler of Aquarius, there is still no escape from Saturn, as Uranus is, of course, in Capricorn.
This is a chart, therefore, that revolves around Saturn, but there is a fiery, passionate, extroverted nature (Jupiter in Sagittarius trine Mars in Leo), willing to come forward and propagate saturnian beliefs. It's not our place to judge these beliefs, after all they will undoubtedly evolve over time, even though I cannot help but raise an eyebrow when I hear him say things like "life begins at conception" which is, of course, an anti-abortion statement. There are perhaps some things that he should leave well alone, until he is old enough to understand both sides of an issue. However, his generation is going to reach maturity during Pluto's transit through Capricorn square Uranus in Aries, and if there is great upheaval, as astrologers promise there will be, at the end of these transits we are going to feel very vulnerable and desperate for someone to restore order. Traditional values may again become en vogue, but we need to re-think them and re-shape them and not try to bring the past into the future, which is never a good idea.
