Lee Atwater, 1951-1991 (American political consultant)

* Lee Atwater was a strategist to the Republican Party. He was an adviser to U.S. Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H. W. Bush and chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Atwater's Scorpio Moon is closely conjunct Reagan's Jupiter and Atwater's Pluto is exactly conjunct Bush's Neptune. Atwater directed ruthless election campaigns for Reagan and Bush, including a dirty tricks operation against Democratic vice-presidential nominee Geraldine Ferraro during the Reagan re-election campaign in 1984, and a focus on the issue of the death penalty for first-degree murderers during Bush's 1988 election campaign. These Scorpionic/Plutonic tactics contributed to successful outcomes: Reagan was re-elected (for his second and last term) and Bush succeeded to the presidential office for his first (and only) term.

Patrick Dennis, 1921–1976 (American author)

* Patrick Dennis's novel Auntie Mame: An Irreverent Escapade (1955) was one of the bestselling American books of the 20th century. In chronological vignettes, the narrator — also named Patrick — recalls his adventures growing up under the wing of his madcap aunt, Mame Dennis. Dennis wrote a sequel, Around the World with Auntie Mame, in 1958. Dennis based the character of Mame Dennis on his father's sister, Marion Tanner. He also wrote several novels under the pseudonym Virginia Rowans. All of Dennis's novels employ to some degree the traditional comic devices of masks, subterfuge and deception.

Auntie Mame was played by Rosalind Russell (in a 1956 Broadway production and in the highly successful 1958 screen adaptation), by Angela Lansbury (in Jerry Herman's 1966 musical Mame), and by Lucille Ball (in the 1974 film version).

The flamboyant and exuberant Mame's frequently repeated motto is "Life is a banquet, and most poor suckers are starving to death!" She is represented by Neptune at 11° Leo in Patrick Dennis's chart, as channelled through synastry by these starring ladies: Rosalind Russell had her MC at 14° Leo, Angela Lansbury had 21° Leo rising, and Lucille Ball had her Sun at 13° Leo.

Brian Mulroney (Canadian businessman, politician and lawyer)

* Brian Mulroney was the 18th Prime Minister of Canada from 17 September 1984 to 25 June 1993.

In his Memoirs he quotes his mother's diary for a birth time of 10:17pm, giving him a Scorpio ascendant, with its ruler Pluto trine his close Sun-Moon conjunction at 29 Pisces-00 Aries.

The Pluto factor probably facilitated his overseeing of the passage of the unpopular Goods and Services Tax.
