UnknownYesterday, I posted a horary chart suggesting that Jeremy Corbyn will not be the Prime Minister of the UK in 2017.

Today, I look at the chart of the election itself and reach the same conclusion.

 

CHART TWO – CLOSE OF POLLS ON ELECTION DAY

UK General election

SUMMARY – The key theme in play for this upcoming general election is HOPE for the FUTURE. The common people (voters) want this most of all. However, the common people are more than aware that there is a good deal of illusion/delusion regarding hope for the future and doubtless feel themselves caught between a rock and hard spot. However one thing that the common people do realise is that the last thing they want is another heavy dose of socialism. How in the world will anyone pay for this? It looks as if Theresa May, despite her many problems/failings, is in a better position than Jeremy Corbyn to deliver what the voters want. She is the more commercially savvy of the two.

DETAILED ANALYSIS

  1. Because Sagittarius is rising, the ruler of this chart is Jupiter and its position and aspects are key to the entire situation.
  2. Jupiter is associated with both religion and philosophy – also with finances and commerce – capitalism, law, and legal service. Jupiter in this chart is a 13 Libra in the 9th house, associated with 9th – religion, legal system and higher education.
  3. Jupiter in Libra is comfortable enough – not particularly strong nor particularly weak. According to the Liber Hermetis, Jupiter in Libra suggests benefits from, or a high social profile because of, women. But because this Jupiter is ‘out of sect’ (i.e. it’s a diurnal planet in a night chart), the benefits to be expected from women must be toned down a bit – perhaps they will require more effort than they are worth – (certainly the situation is not as glamorous as if Jupiter had been placed otherwise in relation to the Sun).
  4. At 14 Libra, this Jupiter is in the terms of Mercury and according to the Liber Hermetis, this suggests that business acumen (and perhaps age) is part of the mix. Whoever steps in to lead the country must be commercially savvy.
  5. So far, we have the picture of a commercially savvy woman who also, because of Jupiter’s placement in the 9th house will be associated with (or acceptable to) commerce. This Jupiter is also trine the Sun, which is associated with the ‘ruling class’ – especially government and its leader. While this might suggest that the outcome of the election will be in keeping with the current administration (in this case, the Conservative Party with its current leader, Theresa May).
  6. However, this Jupiter in Libra is also square (difficult aspect) to Pluto, which is associate corporate affairs, as well as group activity – especially to selfish advantage, the secret service and spy network. Sounds as if just when we’d thought it would all be business as usual, there’s a power struggle of some sort – playing to someone’s personal ego. The square aspect suggests that whatever is going on, will not end up looking pretty. I would never suggest that I am an astute political observer so I will leave it up to you to decide which of the major players in the election has the biggest ego and how much damage might be done as the result.
  7. Interestingly enough, Jupiter is sextile (easier aspect) to the Moon in Sagittarius, which is associated not only with women but also with the common people. What is it that the common people want when they are represented by the Moon in Sagittarius? HOPE for the future!
  8. This Moon is further in a (difficult) aspect to Neptune which is in turn, lined with socialism – i.e. new visions/dreams for the perfect society. This suggests that the common people (voters) are not really keen to embrace more socialism. This is of course, the party line for Labour and Corbyn. The suggestion here is that HOPE for the future will not include a heavy does of socialism.
  9. Neptune is also linked to subversion, confusion, and delusion.  I must admit that Corbyn and his Labour Party would seem to have rather delusional ideas about where they might get the money to pay their promised enhancements both to state-funded education and the National Health Service (NHS). On the other hand, I wouldn’t be the first to suggest that Mrs. May is also delusional at least in regards to what kind of BREXIT deal she can cut for the UK with Europe. This chart suggests that the common people are more than aware there’s a good deal of delusion in regards to their fondly held HOPE for the future and they are not best pleased – but realistically, what can they do? NOTHING. Note that the Moon, Sun (ruling class), and Neptune are caught up in a T Square – the proverbial being ‘caught between a rock and a hard spot’.
  10. I suggest that whichever candidate and or his/her party can provide the most optimistic (and realistic) vision of the future will win this election. This is the focus of the chart ruler of the General Election, Jupiter at 13 Libra.tri wheel
  11. Looking at the charts of Theresa May and Jeremy Corbyn in comparison with the chart for the general election, we find that May’s Sun at 8 Libra is stacked up best to deliver what the people want (13 Libra) whilst Corbyn with his own Neptune (illusion, delusion) at 12 Libra is at best confusing the issues and at worst, undermining any sense of reality.
  12. No one, however, is under any illusion that further moves toward (expensive) socialism at this time would be in the UK’s best interests.

imagesWith the UK general election coming up next week, folks are getting a bit nervous. Given the surprise results of both the BREXIT referendum and the US presidential elections, they are worrying that ‘anything’ could happen and so they should.

Little wonder that I was asked to take a look at the astrology of the situation. I have thus  have have drawn up two charts, one of which is posted today.

with JC be PM

CHART 1 – HORARY – Will Jeremy Corbyn (JC) be Prime Minister (PM) in 2017?

SUMMARY – The short answer is NO – JC will not become PM in 2017.  Stuff is going on behind the scenes (we may never know exactly who, what, or why) that makes this result an impossibility.

In this chart, JC is the quested and hence is represented by the 7th house which has Aquarius on the cusp. This makes Saturn, the natural ruler of Aquarius, symbolic of JC. In this case, Saturn is Retrograde (and not it’s happiest in the fiery sign of Sagittarius) – the retrograde nature of the depositor of JC suggests something is wrong – perhaps he’s reneged on a promise (or someone else has reneged on a promise to him) – in any case, JC is hindered in his move forward toward the position of PM – i.e. instead, he’s back-paddling and it’s little wonder that this won’t take him where he needs to go.

The position of the Prime Minister (PM) is represented by the 10th house which has Aries on the cusp. Hence the ruler of Aries, Mars, is symbolic of the position of the PM.

In order to CJ to become PM, Mars should be making an applying trine or sextile to Saturn, which is not the case here. Indeed, the two are making an opposition which has already perfected suggesting that in some respect, JC has ‘already’ suffered his defeat in some way or another. The die has been cast, so to speak.

Because the Moon is the fastest moving planet in the chart, it is considered to be dispositive of the situation as a whole – i.e. how it came to be and how it will overall unfold. This Moon is in the 3rd house (communications) at 3 Libra 57 and has yet made no major aspects with other planets:

  1. The first aspect the Moon will make is a trine to the Sun in Gemini in the 11th house – suggesting we ought to expect over the next few days some well-balanced, rational (Libra) communication (3rd house and Gemini) to the public at large regarding the election in general and, in particular, to JC and the Labour Party’s manifesto. Indeed, traditional astrology suggests that the Moon trine Sun is good for influencing important people and seeking advancement.
  2. So far, so good.
  3. The next aspect to be made by the Moon is a conjunction with Jupiter (Retrograde).  Although this aspect between the Moon and Jupiter is favourable in general – a lucky break, so to speak, in this case the retrograde nature of Jupiter suggests the lucky break won’t be quite so lucky. Something dysfunctional is going on behind the scenes – and because Jupiter is the natural ruler of Saturn (in this case, symbolic of JC) – we might expect some backroom party politics that is actually going against JC’s favour. This dysfunctionality is again emphasised by the fact that Saturn (JC) itself is Retrograde (see point one above) – something not quite right is going on behind the scenes.
  4. The next aspect to be made by the Moon is a Quincunx to Mercury – this suggests something is ‘out of joint’ in regards to communication. Not so long ago, we were getting  well-balanced and rational communication (journalism) regarding the election  – but now something has changed. Perhaps (just guessing here) this is in relation to that dysfunctionality noted above? But, in any event, expect some change in the media reporting that will not be in JC’s favour.
  5. Next aspect to be made by the Moon is an opposition to Venus. This is not good news.  Such an aspect is generally unfavourable and it probably has to do with a woman.
  6. The final aspect to be made by the Moon (before it changes sign), is a trine to Mars. This suggests some kind of ‘fight’ or even a lawsuit. Because Mars is the depositor of the position of PM itself, we might even expect there to be some squabble in regards to the validity of the claim of those who are vying for the position.

Overall – in keeping with this chart, there is no chance that Corbyn will become Prime Minister in 2017.  However, this does not mean that Labour will not win a majority in this election any more than it suggests that some other party will do so. Indeed, there is every possibility that a coalition will be necessary – and that might well be the best case scenario. There will definitely bee a squabble of some sort in regards to the position of PM – and in keeping with parliamentary ideals, a compromise may (again) be necessary.

 

Will the current ‘intrigue’ regarding Trump and Russia ‘bring him down’?images

_____________________

SUMMARY

YES & NO – although clearly Mr Trump has ‘enemies’ (secret or otherwise) in regards to this ‘intrigue’ –  enemies who are far stronger than is he – it remains unclear whether they will (or even whether they will try to) damage his reputation enough to ‘bring him down’.

Having said that, Mr Trump is most definitely on a collision course of some sort vis a vis his relationship with Russia. Expect ‘conflict’ (could even be an outright war) within approximately five months and that such conflict could lead to Trump’s ‘self-undoing’ and/or resignation.

Despite not being a fan of Mr Trump, after working with this chart I believe that in regards to his dealings with Russia, Trump is probably acting from strong personal conviction that he is doing the right thing. This is the case regardless whether his behaviour in the matter is appropriate, much less moral. Trump feels that he has the ‘divine’ right to ‘reform’ or ‘correct’ certain situations.

In addition, as unsavoury as some of the reports have suggested might be this ‘intrigue’, it is difficult to argue that somehow it will not turn out for the best (albeit whether or not it all turns out well for Trump, personally, remains to be seen).

Finally, expect that when all is said and done, Trump’s Russian intrigue will have had something to do with women.

_____________________

ANALYSIS:

  1. 10th house represents the president – and because Taurus is on the cusp, its ruler, russian-intrigueVenus, represents Trump.
  2. 9th house is Trump’s 12th house of ‘undoing’, ‘secret enemies’, and ‘resignation’. It is also the chart’s house representing foreign lands and their affairs. Because Aries is on the cusp of this house, its ruler, Mars, represents not only Russia, but also all matters of serious affliction for Trump.
  3. NOTE also that because Trump’s 7th house (the 4th house of this chart) has Scorpio on its cusp, Mars also represents Trump’s ‘open’ enemies.
  4. Venus (Trump) is quite weak in detriment (Aries), cadent, and out of SECT.
  5. Mars is stronger in its sign of ruler-ship, Aries, although it too is cadent and out of SECT.
  6. Not only is Venus (Trump) already in the 12th house of ‘undoing’ (and also in Russia’s back pocket), but it is make an applying (5 degree) aspect to conjunct with Mars. This conjunction brings Trump and the path of his ‘undoing’ together in such a way that suggests complete cooperation (whether for ill or gain).
  7. Russia, Trump, and and Trump’s enemies (secret or not) are hence coming together in what promises to be an explosive and fiery ‘conflict’ – Aries (cardinal fire) is a most martial sign. However, based on the movements of the Moon (see point 11, below), it is likely this conflict will somehow all work out for the best in the end (the final aspect made by the Moon is a comfortable Trine with the Sun).
  8. Several fixed stars making close aspect to this chart’s Venus (Trump) reinforce this martial theme:
    • Facies (constellation of Sagittarius) – is the ‘eye of the archer’ and itself associated with warriors, wars, and violent death. It also suggests that Trump is so driven in regards to this situation that he is ‘blind’ to its dangers. Note that in his natal chart, Trump’s Mercury is also in opposition with Facies. A near-sighted archer is not good news.
    • Mirzam (constellation of Canis Major) – carries an important message of some sort. Note that in his natal chart, Trump’s Mercury is also conjunct Mirzam. This message is of great personal importance to Trump.
    • Alhena (constellation of Gemini) – is associated with winning at all costs (arrogance implied) – Trump feels that he has the ‘divine’ right to ‘reform’ or ‘correct’ a certain situation.
    • North & South Asellus (constellation of Cancer) – again associations with ‘blindness’ as well as piled up corpses and wars.
    • Aldebaran (constellation of Taurus) – a great royal star connected with warrior kings (MARS) greatness is a real possibility but only if certain moral challenges are met re: integrity and purity of thoughts and dealings. HONOUR that can’t last.
  9. Several Arabic Parts also make close aspects to this chart’s Venus (Trump) that reinforce this theme of conflict leading to danger & destruction.
    • Ability, Abundance, Commerce, Danger, Debt, Fate, Divorce, Destruction, Genius, Fascination, Imprisonment, Luck, Secret Enemies, and Victory.
  10. Several Arabic Parts also make close aspect to Trump’s natal planets further reinforcing this theme:
    • Mars – Bad Luck, Catastrophe, Destiny, Fortune, Unusual Events
    • Venus – Secret Enemies, Accidents, Armies, Catastrophe, Destiny, Divorce
    • Sun – Lovers, Fame, Eccentricity, Beneficial Change
    • Mercury – Benevolence, Corruptness, Damage, Fascination
    • Moon – Beneficial Change, Controversy, Eccentricity, Lovers
    • Jupiter – Action, Administrators, Bankruptcy, Success, Suicide, Victory
    • Saturn – Catastrophe, Divorce
  11. As the Moon is the overall symbol of how events play out (past, present, future), we look to the Moon (10 Libra) in this chart and the aspects that it has and will make:
    • Last aspect made – opposition to Venus – unfavourable – all women/love concerns s/b approached with caution
    • Next – Quincunx to Neptune – confusion and unrealistic dreams
    • Next – Trine to Mercury – messages and communication – good for business but NOT for signing contracts/agreements
    • Next aspect – Opposition to Mars – unfavourable for all new ventures including friendships and dealings with women.
    • Next – Square with Pluto – dirty dealings, manipulation.
    • Next – Conjunction with Jupiter – lawyers and professionals – a little bit of luck especially with foreign persons?!
    • Next – Opposition with Uranus – emotional anxiety – breaks, accidents, separations, sudden/unpredictable awakenings – possible divorce.
    • Next – Sextile with Saturn – bad for love affairs and friendships with women, obstacles, limitations, loss, and restrictions.
    • FINAL – Trine with Sun – good for new ventures, influencing important people and seeking advancement, life force, health, and last but not least, success.

9h6euWuIRKqJUi6lcWKA_wfcElectional astrology is ‘the art of the possible’ – i.e. choosing the perfect moment to launch a particular project or event so as to give it the best chance of success. The idea is that the chart of the launch moment should symbolically reflect the nature and goals of the project as well as those of the person(s) responsible for it.

The following chart has been elected by Ms T for the launch of her new magazine, the remit of which is to provide effective and practical advice to authors of children’s fiction.

  1. Of prime significance is the placement of the Moon, which plays a dominant role in electional astrology not the least because it the fastest moving planet in the chart and hence, key to timing. In this chart, the Moon is in Pisces, conjunct Neptune – giving a ‘double dose’ of creativity – as Liz Greene reminds us (The Astrological Neptune) – Neptune is closely associated with artists because it is the ‘stuff of the imagination’ – it is the ‘ability to make something out of nothing’ – something that is fanciful and magical – something that is divinely inspired. Sounds good for children’s fiction, doesn’t it?
  2. Beware, however – Neptune also is also associated with loss, delay, and deceit – so Ms T must take care with any small print and not lose heart if/when the going gets tough – the point is to use this Neptunian/Piscean energy as positively as possible – i.e. artistic endeavour and not get caught out with the negative stuff. In this respect, it’s a good thing that Ms T has a goodly dose of Piscean energy (Sun, Venus, and Saturn in Pisces trine Neptune) in her own natal chart. Hence Ms T is no stranger to the illusive energy of Neptune/Pisces– she definitely has what it takes to use this energy to her advantage!
  3. The Moon is strong in the 7th house (angular and ‘other’ people’). This gives it power to manifest its goals in the material world. That the Moon also makes an aspect to the chart’s Ascendant (4 Virgo 02), is good. The Ascendant gives the overall flavour and with Virgo rising, this means attention to detail and practicality/usefulness).  Add the Moon in Pisces, and enhanced creativity also becomes an essential part of this magazine. It would have been nice for a new venture like this one to commence on a New Moon – or at least a waxing moon – however, for a variety of reasons this was not possible – so, fingers crossed & hope for the best.
  4. Because the 3rd house would naturally govern magazines (communications/circulars), we would normally want the ruler of that house (in this case, Mars) to make an easy (trine or sextile) aspect to the Moon.  This also was not possible for a number of reasons. The good news, however, is that any hard aspects (i.e. square or opposition) from the Moon – to a ‘malefic’ like Mars would be harmful – so must be avoided at all costs – and this we have managed to do.
  5. But note that Mars does make a close conjunction with the Sun – whether or not this works out OK remains to be seen. Many planets do not do at all well ‘under the beams’ (i.e. too close) of the Sun. Fingers crossed that Mars can manage! I think that it can do. Both Mars and the Sun function best in fire signs and, after all, Leo is ruled by the Sun. Mars/Sun in Leo lend an assertive, highly motivated air to the project (and its leader) although hopefully, such assertiveness will not be abrasive – as both Mars and Moon are ‘hidden’ from view in the 12th house.
  6. If this were primarily a money-making venture, we’d want the ruler of the 2nd house (in this case Mercury) to be as strong as possible. Ms T has said that while she’d like to make a profit, her goal is not to ‘get rich quick’. This is good because although Mercury is strong in Virgo and effective re: manifesting goals, it does make an opposition to Neptune – and so again – CAUTION – unreality and illusion (Neptune) as to finances of the project are a possibility. Here the problem would be more of a slow but steady drain (Neptune) rather than a big blow-up – so Ms T must  keep a constant eye on finances re: cost/benefit analysis.

imagesFor some months, Mr and Mrs W have been suffering some marital problems. However, they have been working fervently toward a mutually-agreeable solution. In the face of what would appear to be a very recent and serious set-back towards that goal, Mrs W has asked whether she and Mr W will stay together and eventually find happiness?

HappilyYES – this happy result should become clear in either 5 days, 5 weeks, or even possibly, 5 months. However, until then, expect further testing times (and manipulative power-plays).

ANALYSIS:

  1. Because Mrs W is the querent, she is represented by Venus – ruler of the chart’s Taurus ascendant.
  2. Because Mr W is her husband, he is represented by Mars – ruler of the chart’s 7th house cusp (Scorpio).
  3. Venus (Mrs W) would be quite powerful in Pisces (where she is exalted) – but she is much weakened by being cadent (12th house) and square to the malefic, Saturn (in the 8th house of joint finances). She is also retrograde (back-pedalling). Doubtless, feeling constrained by her overall situation (most likely financial), Mrs W is reconsidering her options.
  4. Mars (Mr W) would be quite weak by being in detriment in Taurus – however he regains much power by being conjunct the chart’s Ascendant (i.e. he is both cadent and angular )- where he is in a much better position than Venus (Mrs W) to  influence the outcome of the situation. Although modern planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) are not usually used in horary, it is tempting to suggest that because Mars (Mr W) is in trine aspect to Pluto, he has been manoeuvring behind the scenes to pull off a covert power-play. This somewhat malevolent game is also suggested by Mars conjunct the fixed star, Algol, which is associated with intensity and ruthlessness. If that were not enough to confirm suspicions, Mars is also conjunct the fixed star, Capulus, which is linked with aggressive, male energy.
  5. Be that as it may, in order to predict a happy ending for Mr and Mrs W, we need for Venus (Mrs W) and Mars (Mr W) to have an applying trine or sextile aspect between them. While these two are indeed in sextile aspect, it would appear (at first-blush) that they are separating (with Venus leading the way) rather than applying; this would not be good. However, Venus is currently in retrograde (back-pedalling) and after she turns direct (15th April), Mars will chase after and catch up with her on the 17th April at 2AM GMT- when the (now applying) sextile will be perfected.
  6. This is good news for Mr and Mrs W –  and this should become clear in 5 days, 5 weeks, or perhaps even 5 months.
  7. In horary, the Moon is the overall symbol of how events play out (past, present, and future) and so before we give our final verdict here, we must also look to the Moon (3 Scorpio) and all aspects that it will make before it changes sign.
    • Next aspect – Moon opposition Mercury – suggesting a favourable time for working out that mutually-agreeable solution.
    • Next – Moon opposition Mars – suggesting a testing time for the couple – perhaps some teething problems with implementing that solution?
    • Final – Moon trine Venus – good for marriage and love affairs, suggesting Mr and Mrs W will finally find that marital happiness they so desire – as this result confirms the initial analysis, we can now safely sat that this is the end of the matter.

Electional astrology is the art of choosing the ideal moment for a particular project or event; it focuses on a point of no return, a time of commitment from which I am unlikely to turn back.

The astrologer-magician, John Dee, elected the chart for Queen Elizabeth I’s coronation as well as the timing of the sailing of the Armada and we all know how well they both turned out. No chart is perfect. I understand that. But if in choosing the time to launch my new astrological coaching practice I can do half as well as Dee did, I’ll be pleased.

CONSIDERATIONS INCLUDE:

  1. Arguably, the placement of the Moon is most important factor in electional astrology – this is because she is the fastest moving planet in the chart and hence, key to issues of timing.
  2. The Moon should be angular so that she can be of maximum effect. Here the Moon is in the 4th house (angular) – strong at the very foundation or root of the chart/new coaching practice.
  3. This Moon is making an applying trine to Jupiter  – this aspect is favourable for starting new ventures as well as for dealing with influential people.
  4. After that, the Moon will make a trine to Mercury (good for work requiring ingenuity and flexibility) as well as making a trine to the Sun (also good for beginning new ventures, influencing important people, and seeking advancement).
  5. Upon reaching her trine with the Sun, the Moon will have formed Grand Trine in AIR (Sun, Moon, Jupiter). AIR = communication – i.e. the ability to stand back and dispassionately observe a situation – FANTASTIC because as I understand it, this is what coaching is all about.
  6. Modality of the angles – I’ve elected for cardinal signs (Libra/Aries on the ASC/DSC and Capricorn/Cancer on the IC/MC) – this is to get my practice up and moving as soon as possible – making the maximum impact in the shortest period of time.
  7. Strong chart ruler – with Libra rising, Venus is the chart-ruler and she is strong in Taurus, which she rules by sign and also by term. This lends a pleasing and diplomatic flavour to my practice – clients will feel welcome and fairly treated. How can that be anything other than good?
  8. Venus is Square to the Moon – traditionally this is favourable for sports and games as well as for marriage and hiring employees. I’ll be honest. There’s no connection here between that and my new coaching practice. However, it’s important that the chart ruler isn’t making any adverse aspects (especially to Saturn) which luckily, she is not. While it is true that Venus is making a Sextile to Mars (like Saturn, also a malefic), this ensures a good working relationship between me (7th house/Aries = Mars as ruler) and my clients (1st house/Libra = Venus as ruler).
  9. Jupiter on the Ascendant – adds an air of optimistic expansion to my new practice – which I figure is also good. Clients needs to see all possibilities before them before they can choose and the more positive they are about making that choice, the better that choice will likely turn out.launch and me
  10. Mercury and the Sun are both in Gemini – the zodiacal sign most associated with communication – with Mercury very strong in rulership (Gemini) – and also conjunct my own natal Moon at 13 Gemini! Note also that the Sun at 22 Gemini is conjunct my natal Jupiter (26 Gemini). Both ensuring that my personalised stamp will be on my new endeavour. Positive elements of Gemini include sharp intellect, maximum flexibility, eager and alert, excellent communicators, widely versed, sophistication with words.

BREXITOn Wednesday, Theresa May triggered Article 50 and BREXIT begins; I would not be surprised if the UK government employed astrologers to advise as to the timing of this  – the astrological symbolism is  perfect:

  • Five planets (Venus, Sun, Uranus, Moon, Mercury)
  • Clustered in ARIES (fighting fit) – cardinal (whoosh) fire
  • Highly visible at the top of the chart (HIGH NOON)
  • with the Sun and Venus straddling the Midheaven (MC).
  • The UK people (Moon)
  • have delivered a radical and rebellious (Uranus)
  • albeit diplomatic (Venus)
  • message (Mercury)
  • through their Prime Minster (Sun)
  • that they are taking back control of their nation – regardless of the consequences (Aries).

images-1When looking at the BREXIT chart in comparison with the UK natal chart, we find that BREXIT stellium in Aries at the UK natal Descendant – SUNSET – waving a fond farewell to the EU – GOODBYE (for now).Untitled

Also, when comparing the UK natal chart (inner ring) to the BREXIT chart (outer ring) we might consider the following:

  1. BREXIT was inevitable – the BREXIT Jupiter opposition Uranus is conjunct the UK’s nodal axis (‘fated’ past/future) – The 14-year cycle involving Jupiter and Uranus is all about the Promethean Spirit – rebellion – self-determination – saying ‘no’ to the status quo. Here we find Jupiter and Uranus in opposition – 180 degrees – the extreme point of the cycle that began in 2010 (Jupiter and Uranus were conjunct together at 0 degrees Aries). Unsurprisingly, it was in 2010 that the Daily Express became the first mainstream national newspaper to demand that the UK should leave the EU and it was to become one of the fastest-growing campaigns in newspaper history. At the opposition – BREXIT – it should come as no surprise that we have just harvested fruit of the seeds sown at that 2010 Britain-out-572878conjunction.
  2. BREXIT is about the death and REBIRTH of the heart and soul of a nation (BREXIT Pluto conjunct the UK’s Sun in Capricorn in the 4th house). Yes, indeed it is that but it is also something else too – BREXIT is part of much bigger (global) picture – i.e. radical restructuring of the world order. OK, the deal here is that BREXIT happened during outgoing square – (i.e. 90 degrees – manifestation – CRISIS POINT) – of the current Pluto/Uranus (127-year) cycle, which commenced in 1965/66). It was in 1965 that Nigel Lawson said that the UK should join the Common Market (as the EU was then called) – because its only choice was between that and backward looking protectionism. But it was not long after the UK joined the EU/EEC in 1973 that the reality of that decision was to come home to roost. Even by the 1970’s the EU had made moves toward monetary union and tax harmonisation – and the English jurist, Lord Denning, explained in 1974 that EEC Law was ‘like an incoming tide’ that cannot be held back. With BREXIT, this tide has now turned – the dikes of protectionism will no longer be breached. What might this suggest about the world-wide future of the ever-growing tide of globalism? If what just happened with BREXIT is any indication, I think we now know the answer – all things both good and bad must someday, come to an end.
  3. BREXIT is also about regaining the DREAM of the UK’s once superior international network of commercial interests (BREXIT Neptune sextile UK Mars in Taurus in the 9th house – also note that the BREXIT Mars in Taurus is also conjunct the UK’s Mars in Taurus). But whether this dream of renewal is possible to achieve is highly questionable to the least because Neptune always undermines Mars’ efforts. It has been suggested (Baigent, Campion, Harvey) that the UK’s natal Mars in the 8th house in opposition to Neptune indicates all the wars fought to support the UK superior network of commercial interests – especially as a maritime power – Britannia rules the waves!? Let’s not forget that BREXIT has done nothing to change this – that Neptune/Mars natal aspect that served the UK so well for so many years remains firmly fixed in place. Perhaps UK politicians should take note that although ruling the waves again like in times gone by may no longer be a realistic possibility, Neptune also rules fishing, drugs, oil, and promotion of stock companies.Unknown
  4. There are fears that BREXIT means financial setbacks for the UK – and, at least in the short-term, and that is probably inevitable – but how bad will it be and for how long? Venus governs money – financial institutions, bankers, as well as  national resources. In in the BREXIT chart, Venus is pedalling backwards – i.e. retrograde motion. This, I fear, suggests some financial hard times ahead and, quite possibly, because the BREXIT Venus falls in the UK’s 6th house – it will be felt most by the NHS (National Health Service). Hopefully, however, this back-pedalling won’t go on for too long – it’s a given that eventually, Venus will turn and move forwards again (17 ephemeris days = 17 months?). Note also that in the BREXIT chart Mercury (science, literary works, education and the press) is making a close trine to Saturn (structure, regulations, discipline). So one way forward economically might be for the UK to introduce laws encouraging the export of education and literature – both endeavours of which the UK is already well-respected and well-known. This suggestion is echoed by the fact that the BREXIT Saturn is in the UK’s natal 3rd house (trade, education, communication) and trine the UK’s own natal Saturn in the 11th (parliament).
