Lloyd George’s Horoscope

Published: 29 June 1913

The current Chancellor of the Exchequer once consulted a student of the stars to see what his future held, according to a recent edition of The Occult Review. The horoscope says that Lloyd George’s rising sign is Aquarius which denotes a ‘Bohemian, independent and a somewhat superstitious temperament'. The financial part of the Chancellor’s horoscope is ruled by Neptune, the planet that rules ‘speculation, over-capitalised companies, booms that eventuate in slumps and, in short, everything that comes under the heading of fiasco’. Apparently the horoscope concludes that Lloyd George’s future will be far less prosperous than his past.
