Perhaps you watched HBO's Last Week Tonight with John Oliver this past Sunday (5.4.14 11:00 pm EDT) and his comedic report about the country of Brunei and its super-wealthy Sultan. As you know, Mr. Oliver subbed for Jon Stewart on The Daily Show all last summer when Jon was off making a film. Now HBO would undoubtedly take offence if I embedded a video of the Brunei report, so I won't but below is a performance by John Oliver--delivered in Montreal--concerning America, with Brunei's natal details following.
If you remember, the Sultan of Brunei, an oil-rich nation, is often seen at the toniest of places including the White House (the country's Sharia Law notwithstanding) and he was the dude who in 1996 threw a lavish 2-week-long party and invited Michael Jackson to perform. The Sultan, as John Oliver notes in his Brunei report, did not attend the concert.
Now if you wish to set up Brunei's natal horoscope you'll find that transit Pluto (of oil and pipeline fame) has entered 4th house and conjoined first, Mercury, then natal Sun @9Cap24. There's a lot going on behind the scenes in Brunei so invisible Pluto must feel right at home.
You'll also see that natal Mars @24Lib29, the first natal planet to rise in the chart--followed by Pluto @1Sco47--is in process of a national Mars Return on these dates indicating a new cycle of activity: February 6, 2014; March 24, 2014 (Rx); and upcoming is July 15, 2014.
From Campion's The Book of World Horoscopes, we learn that Brunei, formerly a British Protected State, received full independence on January 1, 1984 at 00:00 CCT. ASC 4Lib39; MC 4Can04 (Goals); Sun (leadership) 9Cap24; Moon (the people) 9Sag50 conjunct Fixed Star Antares, 3rd house; Mercury 8Cap35 Rx; Venus 29Sco30, a critical degree, 2nd house; Mars 24Lib29; Jupiter 25Sag50, in its own sign, 3rd house; Saturn 13Sco55 in 2nd house and recently having its Return as well; Uranus 11Sag07, 3rd house (and conjoining Brunei's Pre-Natal Eclipse Series degree of 11Sag46 in the 3 South Series of 'traumatic transformation and endings' (Brady); Neptune, also associated with oil is @25Sag20 in 3rd house and forming a conjunction of the speculation, wastrel, spendthrift, gambling, fraudulent pair, Jupiter-Neptune. First house Pluto @1Sco47, as noted, rises with hotheaded Mars, and is posited at the NWO natal Sun degree of October 24, 1993: 1Sco19.
Yes, Presidents Clinton, George W, and Obama have had sit-down photo ops and private conversations with the Sultan of Brunei, a country that advertises itself as quite a treasure-filled vacation spot if you're interested!
But before you depart, let's consider the Images for Integration of Brunei's Sun Cap-MoonSag personality blend to the portrait: "In his spare time, a High Court Judge takes up the serious hobby of gambling at horse races...A bank clerk plans a world cruise."
