All of his planets fall within 120° of each other, from 20°Gemini to 19°Libra. Astrologers call this pattern a Bundle.
My favourite astrology book says this of the Bundle: An individual with such a planetary pattern is motivated by a narrow, but highly focused, purpose. Such a person is usually able to get whatever he wants, though most often without awareness (absence of oppositions) of the value or destructiveness of actions taken in the process of realizing his desires [Michael R Meyer].
The other point to note is GWB's Sun-Sirius conjunction. Another astrology book, by Ebertin-Hoffman, says: Sirius in conjunction with the Sun and well placed in the cosmogram will be found to be the case with numerous important and famous personalities. Possibly, the rise in station is made possible by protection from people of influence. (Others in my database with Sun-Sirius conj. are James I of Scotland, Liebnitz, Garibaldi, President Calvin Coolidge, Hesse, Cocteau, Frida Kahlo, the current Dalai Lama and Amelie Mauresmo.) The star Sirius (alpha Canis Major) is sometimes called the Dog Star, and gives its name to the Dogs Days of Summer, which we're in now.
All of his planets fall within 112° of each other, from 17° Gemini to 10° Libra. That's an even tighter Bundle than George's. (See above)
Olmert was born nine months and five days before Bush - the two babies were born but a pregnancy apart. Yet their charts are spookily similar. They overlap each other. Their main differences are that Bush's is stronger, in terms of the aspects between the planets, whereas Olmert's strength is in the extraordinary pile-up of planets between 5° and 9° Libra (Mercury, Neptune, Sun, Jupiter, Chiron, respectively).
Note, too, Olmert's Mars-Sirius conjunction. Which means that that Olmert's Mars, and Bush's Sun, are conjunct each other in a dual chart.
See how they coincide. See the conjunctions between them (EO-GWB): Uranus-Uranus; Mars-Sun; Pluto-Mercury; Venus-Mars; and Mer/Nep/Sun/Jup/Chi-Neptune. Some transits will affect both men in related ways.
It's almost as if the two were one. Two world leaders in deep and fateful consort.
I don't what any or all of this means, if anything at all. But I found the Sirian Sun(self)-Mars(war) conjunctions interesting (although I hope that Sirius and Syria are not connected). And as Bundles are the rarest form of astrological pattern, and both of these men, the current US president and Israeli PM, have Bundles in exactly the same area of the chart, I felt it an oddity worth reporting..
