Davis in sesquiquadrate aspect to Pluto

Astrology for the 21st Century points out that DD's 'public profile has been relatively low-key during his political career, so the electorate has little idea of what makes him tick.'

They fill in the gaps with a handy astrological reading of his natal chart.

'David's cluster of inner planets in conservative Capricorn are a literal marker of his politics. The Sun, Mercury, Mars, and Jupiter are all in this sign, with three of them conjunct, so there is a concentration of psychological energy here. Thus, Capricornian themes of authority, discipline, responsibility, achievement, status, success, and contribution to be dominant ones in his outlook.

The Sun, however, is opposite Uranus, and there are two main ways this type of configuration generally plays out: one is by being a rebel, challenging existing structures, playing devil's advocate, being a moderniser and reformer, refusing to fit into a traditional box. The other is autocracy. Both can sit side-by-side in a person, they are not mutually exclusive by any means. In fact, often they are absolutely tied together.

Taken together, this cluster of planets in Capricorn could indicate someone who is extremely confident of their opinions and ideas, and who therefore wants to establish them into lasting structures. Of course, most politicians want to do this in some way, shape, or form, but with this signature in his chart Davis is someone for whom this drive is absolutely paramount. It is something he will pursue with vigour, marathon-level stamina, and large dose of steely determination.

With Sun in sesquiquadrate aspect to Pluto, and Mars in septile to Pluto, there is an unrelenting drive for power; it would not be extreme to describe it as power-lust. The wielding of power and authority capture this man's imagination and get his motor running. How he channels this, the consciousness he brings to it, is key.These Pluto contacts also show a propensity to become embroiled in power struggles.

When Davis was sacked from his job as party chairman, he said he was the target of a 'cowardly campaign of character assassination.' With Mars septile Pluto, there is a part of him that loves to see himself as living on the edge, pitting his wits against enemies in 'mortal' combat, surviving do-or-die situations and boldly facing threats to his position.'

Almost makes you believe astrology isn't complete bullshit. Almost.

....The Sun, however, is opposite Uranus.....

Unlike Michael Portillo for example who is convinced that the Sun shines from Uranus.
