Nigel Farage

Nigel Farage: the European Right Wing's new star.  Possibly as brash as Ted Cruz, savvy as Rand Paul, and as plain-spoken as Walter Jones, the MEP and leader of the UK Independence Party has just delivered a stunning electoral upset to England.  It is a public rebuke of the growing web of the European Union:  a large segment of the British public apparently wants to be left alone by the EU both politically and economically, and to reduce the influx of immigrants. 

Libertarian:  Pallas trine Sun, trine Mars (ruler of Sun), and opposite Venus, ruler of Mercury.  Mercury conjunct Jupiter, ruler of Pallas. 
Authoritarian:  Pallas relatively widely square Pluto
This is a strong, mostly libertarian signature. 

Capitalist:  Venus parallel North Node
There are zero indicators of left-wing economics.  Farage's chart is 100% free-market capitalist.

Conservative:  North Node in Cancer.  This is not the strongest possible indicator, but it's the only one here I can see.  Farage defaults to cultural-conservative positions, probably partially mitigated by the strong Pallas.  This probably explains his conservative but not particularly passionate stance on immigration. 

Pluto and Uranus Rising:  perfect for someone whose raison d'etre seems to be the fomenting of change and disruption.

Mercury conjunct Jupiter, trine Uranus, and sextile Saturn:  pubic, populist speech regarding breaking away in the context of government. 

Mars widely conjunct Sun in Aries:  a really fiery guy. 

Pallas on the IC:  a born fighter.

Rand Paul isn't too bad, but it might be fun to see a guy like this in the US stir things up.
