UK General Election / 12 December 2019

Summary

All change! The end of the current Conservative status quo is in sight but it won’t be pretty. Expect reputations ruined and careers terminated in a flurry of victimization, dirty deals, and scapegoating. The people will have soundly voted against the current government but things will not turn out as they’d hoped or expected. This heralds a brand-new day in British politics, a completely new cycle. Optimism abounds but, unfortunately, is short-lived.

Discussion

The key to this chart (set for when the polls close) is the close conjunction of Venus/Pluto/Saturn in Capricorn in the 5th house. Also, of note is that earlier in the day there was a full moon – i.e. when the Sun and Moon are in complete opposition.

  • The Saturn/Pluto cycle is about the need for endings – the status quo is no longer viable and is swept away to make room for a new political order for the future.
  • This conjunction of Saturn/Pluto comes exact in January 2020 but be prepared for the outcome of this election to set the tone for what is later to come.
  • The last time there was a Saturn-Pluto conjunction in Capricorn was in January 1518, just two months after Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg and began the Protestant Revolution that radically changed the face of world politics. The Catholic Church, the then prevailing ‘big government’ had abused its power too many times and so came to an end.
  • Capricorn symbolises not only government and similar bureaucratic structures like the Catholic Church but more specifically conservative governments/structures.
  • Put all this together and it’s likely that we will see the end of the current Conservative government, which arguably has also abused its power.
  • That Venus (which speaks to a nation’s resources) is involved suggests that current Conservative policies re: the national resources has come to an end.
  • Add to that all that planetary energy in the 5th house which among other things is linked with financial speculation and we can expect that current Conservative policies (or those individuals/institutions behind them) that have basically been throwing the ‘dice’ with the nation’s resources will be resoundingly finished. Was the NHS (National Heath Service) really up for sale under the current Conservative administration?
  • The new world-order that is in the making from the ‘ashes’ of the soon-to-be failed Conservative policies might well have something to do with the very prominent Jupiter/Uranus trine (hope/possibility/optimistic rebellion) which also touches the 5th house and the 9th house (foreign relations). Interestingly, the Jupiter/Uranus trine ties very tightly in with the Ascendant, or the cusp of the 1st house, which speaks to the national identity and outlook. We can see the fruits of the whatever was unleashed at the start of this current Jupiter/Uranus cycle in 2010, with the UK general election that is known as ‘the day that changed politics forever’ when the Conservatives (David Cameron) were forced to form a government with the Lib Dems (Nick Clegg). Perhaps this is an indication that the electorate is again so unhappy with any of the party manifestos that a coalition government will again be necessary?
  • It is also worth noting that earlier in the day, there was a full moon. As is often the case, the full moon often serves as the trigger of planetary patterns. In this regard, the voters/common people (Moon) are in OPPOSITION to the sitting government (the Sun) and this has manifested in an outcome that quick frankly, not many will have expected.

Female US President?

Will Elizabeth Warren become 1st US female president?


SUMMARY

Probably, but because the chart itself is in questionable territory, if Ms Warren were to become president, the road leading to that position will take unpredictable and highly emotional – COMBUSTIVE – twists and turns.


FIT for PURPOSE

The Moon in this chart is in the Via Combusta.

  • In many horary circles, this would suggest the chart is unfit to be read.
  • Others suggest that the chart is worth reading to get the lay of the land but the issue involved is likely very unsettled – i.e. combustible, literally likely to blow up.
  • Still others suggest that the Via Combusta Moon acts like Moon conjunct Uranus, suggesting sudden, unpredictable and contrary twists and turns. 

DETAILS

Keeping the above warning in mind, let’s see where this chart might take us.

  • With Taurus on the cusp of the 7th house, Warren is symbolised by Venus who is very strong in Libra, a sign that she rules.
  • The US presidency is symbolised by Mercury because the cusp of the 10th house is Virgo, a sign ruled by Mercury.
  • Mercury moves faster than Venus and so the two will not make the desired conjunction.
  • Luckily using a technique known as translation of light, the separating aspect of Mercury and Venus can still be made good. In this case, the Moon – which moves faster than both Mercury and Venus – carries the ‘light’ from Venus to Mercury, rather like the passing of a baton in a relay race. This brings Venus and Mercury favourably back into connection again. The classical application of this technique requires that Venus (the slower planet) must receive the translating planet (Moon) in one of its essential dignities which it does (Venus rules Libra).
  • This means that – YES – Ms Warren will indeed become the 1st female president of the United States if, and only if, this chart is fit for purpose to be read.
  • The aspects made overall by the Moon in a horary chart tell the unfolding story:
    • The first aspect made by the Moon was a conjunction with the Sun which is not favourable. Any planet coming in direct close contact with the Sun is ‘burned’ and suffers grave misfortune. Perhaps this is indicative of what appears to some as the ‘sacrifice’ of Joe Bidden by the Democratic party in respect to what is quickly being referred to as #ukrainegate. 
    • The next aspect made by the Moon was a square to Saturn which is pretty much bad for everything and especially bad for all things Saturnine, which includes governments. 
    • The next aspect that will be made by the Moon is a sextile to Jupiter, which indicates a favourable time for decision-making as well as legal transactions. Keeping in mind this chart is about Ms Warren and her bid for the presidency, this might suggest that the Democratic party will decide to endorse her instead of Biden as the legal challenge relating to #ukrainegate tips in her favour.
    • The next and final aspect that will be made by the Moon is a conjunction with Mercury which will be favourable for communications, contracts, and commercial transactions. Might we be expecting a message from the Democratic party leadership endorsing Ms Warren in the next 10 days or possibly 10 weeks?
Astrology

Will Boris Resign as Prime Minister by Monday?

Summary

This chart suggests that the decision to resign has already, at some level, been made even if not yet communicated. Boris is badly damaged by recent events but if, as the chart suggests, he does resign, such move is part of a cleverly strategized and very well plotted ‘exercise’ or ‘game’ that either involves outright deception or at the very least purposeful lack of clarity.


Details

  1. This chart has 28 degrees rising which in classical horary tradition, suggests that it is not radical (i.e. able) to be judged.
  2. This is most probably because the matter in question has already been decided, although such announcement has not yet been made.
  3. Keeping the issue of radicality in mind, I will attempt to read the chart anyway to learn more about the situation.
  4. Boris is represented by Mercury because Virgo is on the 7th house cusp (i.e. I am the querent and he is the queried).
  5. Mercury/Boris is in Virgo, – where he should be strong (by rulership).  However, because he is so close to the Sun (i.e. he is combust, or ‘burned’ by the Sun) he is nonetheless significantly damaged.
  6. The position of the PM (Prime Minister) is represented by Mars because Scorpio is on the 10th house cusp. Mars (or the position of the PM) is likewise damaged or ‘burned’.
  7. Mercury/Boris has already parted with Mars/ the position of PM and is moving away from such position at some speed. It is important to note that the position of the PM and Boris will not come together again whilst the Mercury is in Virgo. This suggests that if Boris were to be PM in the future, significant circumstances would need to change.
  8. The Moon, currently at 6 Sagittarius, is the primary determinant of the overall situation. Its movements during its time in Sagittarius thus narrate the whole story:
  • The Moon has yet to make an aspect with any other planets since moving in Sagittarius. This suggests that whatever Boris’s decision, he has not revealed it as yet perhaps not even to himself.
  • The first aspect made by the Moon will be a square to Mars. This is not favourable for matters of any kind, especially for dealing with authority figures.
  • The next aspect made by the Moon will be a Square to the Sun. Again, this is unfavourable for dealing with influential people.
  • After this, the Moon perfects a Square with Mercury. This aspect is considered to be favourable for sending messages and dealing with influential people.
  • Next, the Moon will perfect a conjunction with Jupiter. Again, this is favourable for dealing with others as well as for winning lawsuits.
  • Although Neptune is not usually used for horary purposes, it is tempting to suggest that when the Moon perfects its Square with Neptune, the truth of the matter in question will be either distorted or withheld for purposes of deception.
  • Finally, the Moon makes a Square aspect to Venus, which is favourable for ‘sports and games’. This suggests that should Boris resign, it is a cleverly strategized ‘move’ in a well-plotted exercise or game. Because this occurs in the 8th house, such exercise regards restructuring.

BREXIT with BORIS

Will Boris suspend UK parliament?


Summary

No. In this regard, Parliament is much stronger than Boris and the way forward for the UK is much more likely to be by agreement with the EU than by edict from Boris.


Details

Horary Chart
  1. Boris = the 7th house (the person in question) and with Taurus on the cusp, Venus is the significator for Boris.
  2. The UK government = 10th house and with Leo on the cusp, the Sun is the signficator for Parliament.
  3. Although it would appear that Venus (Boris) will conjunct with Sun (parliament) suggesting that Boris will have his way, the conjunction never perfects (i.e. it never happens). This suggests that Boris will NOT be successful in his attempts to suspend the UK parliament.
  4. Being so close to the Sun, Boris (Venus) is ‘combust’ or burned by the Sun’s rays, rather like a 3rd degree burn and hence greatly weakened.
  5. On the same theme, Venus is in Virgo where she (and Boris) are in Fall and again, greatly weakened. However, Boris regains some strength by Venus being in its own terms.
  6. Unlike Boris, Parliament is not debilitated in any way although it is also not in a position of significant power. It does, however, gain some strength from being in ‘face’ which means that it is at home, comfortably, in its environment.
  7. Overall this leaves Parliament in a stronger position than Boris.

To see how this will play out, we look to the movements of the Moon:

  • The last aspect made by the Moon was a square to Uranus. Although technically Uranus is not used in horary, it can often help colour in details of the situation in question and in this case because Uranus is both rebellious and unorthodox, the announcement just made by Boris that he will suspend parliament is well-represented by this aspect.
  • The next aspect to be made is a trine with Jupiter which suggests favourable dealings with influential people. Because the Moon rules the 9th house in this chart which symbolises both foreign countries and the court system, it is quite possible that the influential people in question is either the EU or the judiciary. If so, then BREXIT will be decided either by agreement with the EU or in the courts and not by Boris.
  • The final aspect made by the Moon before it changes signs is a conjunction with Mercury. This suggests signing favourable contracts and commercial agreements. Because Mercury rules both the 8th and 11th houses of this chart (neither of which is associated with Boris), such contracts and agreements are much more likely to be in keeping with parliamentary sentiment than that of Boris.
  • Indeed, in combination with the Solar Return of Boris that is operative during this period it is quite possible that Boris will no longer be Prime Minister when such agreements/contracts are signed.

Redundancy – yes, no, and how?

Question

X has just received notification of the likelihood of redundancy in the near future after many years of devoted service. How is this likely to pan out?


Time for goodbye?

Summary

The redundancy has not been well thought out by the employer and is likely to generate some heated discussion/arguments (internal). However it is likely to proceed with a nice payout for X, who is more likely than not going to be very happy. This ‘rebirth’ in X’s career as been a long time coming and is welcome. The only warning here is that X needs to take extra care when dealing with ‘important’ people because there’s likely some element of confusion or even outright deception.


Details

Horary Chart
  • X is represented by Venus, the ruler of the 7thhouse (I’m the querent asking on X’s behalf).
  • Venus is in a strong position (dignified by Term).
  • X’s career is ruled by Saturn because Aquarius is on the cusp of X’s house of career (4thhouse in this chart). Saturn is very strong in rulership of Capricorn. 
  • Further, Venus (X) is in reception (albeit not mutual reception) with Saturn (career) by Term. Career and X are on the same wave length and in a strong position
  • The Moon is the overall symbol of how events play out (past, present, and future).
  • At 2 Scorpio 56, the Moon has not yet make any connection with another planet since changing sign. This suggests that X’s employer hasn’t given this much prior consideration and indeed, because the first aspects that the Moon will make will be a square to Mars/Mercury, the employer may be in for some ‘heated’ discussion (or quarrelling) on this matter, probably internal. Mercury is in retrograde; this suggests similar problems and issues. 
  • That X and his employer (symbolised by Mars, as Scorpio is on X’s 7th house cusp (1st house in this chart) are not really communicating/connecting here, is demonstrated by lack of any aspect between Venus (X) and Mars (employer).
  • The Moon next makes an opposition to Uranus which suggests that the redundancy (break with the employer) will happen. Although many horary astrologers don’t use Uranus, Pluto, or Neptune, I believe that they shed valuable light on the situation. In this case, I’ll include them as ‘advisory’. The employer may also be symbolised by Saturn (Aquarius on the cusp of X’s 10th house) and Venus perfecting an opposition to Saturn does suggest that X and the employer are at odds with each other, pulling apart, on opposite sides of the fence.
  • Next, the Moon perfects a trine, or profitable aspect, with Venus (X). This suggests that X will be happy about this whole undertaking, especially when it comes to money.
  • The Moon will next perfect a sextile with Saturn, suggesting that this is a favourable time for legal dealings and/or with ‘officials’.
  • The Moon next makes a favourable trine to the Sun (and Neptune) suggesting that ‘important’ people will weigh in on this. X should take special care here, however, because Neptune’s involvement adds an element of confusion, lack of clarity, or possibly also outright deception. The by-word here might be all the glitters is not gold, so X must scratch under the veneer presented to find out what’s really going on.
  • The  last aspect the Moon perfects before changing sign is a sextile to Pluto. This adds an element of ‘rebirth’ and ‘transformation’ to the mix and if X was not happy with the job as it had evolved of late, this break with the employer of many years may be just what is needed.
  • The whole process should take about 20 days.

Happy Birthday America


The Solar Return (SR) chart gives a brief snapshot of the 12-month period (birthday-to-birthday). Such predictive techniques are necessarily short and sweet, giving ample opportunity for all concerned to fill in the details.


Summary

Astrologically, a nation’s warmongering is dangerous when motivation is primarily for ‘national glory’. If President Trump continues on this current path to the apparent detriment of the national wealth, he may find that the American people will revolt against him. This would not be unexpected, given his own SR(s) for the same period. 


Details

The operative planets for the SR chart for 2019/20 for the nation-state known as the United States of America are Jupiter and Neptune, which are forming an opportunistic square aspect for the whole of calendar 2019. With this energy, carefully considered risks accompanied by diligence and hard work can be expected to flourish.

Jupiter/Neptune take centre stage because they are the only planets tied closely to the angles of the chart and hence able to manifest in actual events.

But because Jupiter/Neptune is also the signature of the naïve and foolhardy, this is territory where those who are not well-versed in risk assessment and/or the application of diligence should fear to tread. The hinge-factor is Saturn; he provides opportunity only for those willing and able to identify and rectify the weak spots in their plans of action.

This SR chart sees Neptune strongly placed in the house of America’s foreign affairs. The upside is a more idealistic society. The downside is serious potential for both delusion and confusion, especially in regards to wars, the results of which lead to more confusion. This is especially true where the primary motivation for the war is ‘national glory’, as is demonstrated in the chart of Fascist Italy.

Jupiter is strongly placed in the SR 4th house of the common man, i.e. ordinary American citizens. Jupiter signifies the common values and belief systems that hold the nation together, which (looking backwards to the first 4th of July) are both idealistic and egalitarian.

Jupiter also is associated with the national wealth. Looking back to the birth chart of the American nation, we find the national wealth ruled by Saturn in Libra (Capricorn is on the 2nd house cusp).

In Libra, for Saturn to be successful, all aspects of the situation require careful consideration, especially in regards to relationships/partnerships. 

My suggestion is that with Mr Trump at the helm, boosting national glory through warmongering is the agenda which will set America on course for financial disaster by disrupting the political and economic relationships/partnerships which in the past have allow it to flourish.

There is, however, hope in this regards.

In mundane astrology, Saturn symbolises the nation’s attitude toward law and order, authority, and tradition. If Mr Trump continues trying to take America away from the idealistic, egalitarian roots (Moon in Aquarius) upon which it was founded, the people may rebel against him, taking law and order – as well as authority – in their own hands. Is this not exactly what happened leading up to first 4th of July, the Declaration of Independence of the colonies from the fatherland, Britain?

Given Trump’s own SR for the year ahead, this result would not be unexpected.

Karmic Dilemmas


Today, I attended a fab networking event for the ladies and the question was raised about karma.


Whether you believe that karma is about actual past lives or something more along the lines of what your higher self (or soul) wants to work on during this lifetime, this is my take on a few astrological considerations.


General shape of the natal chart – here, we are looking for empty spaces (i.e. quadrants or hemispheres rather than single houses). Energy ‘flow’ in the chart is important to pinpoint blockages as well as overcompensations.

I have absolutely nothing in the 3rd quadrant, which governs my personal development through relationships, socialisation and intellect. I’ve been married twice and have far too many university degrees. Overcompensation? You can bet on it.


Chiron – is also a big karmic factor and guess what, he’s conjunct my 7th house cusp! Is he telling me that I’ve suffered prior ‘wounds’ in relationship that had to do with balancing my own needs and that of the ‘other’? If so, then not surprisingly does this often manifest as the typical Libra refrain (I have 4 planets in Libra) – ‘I’ll do anything for you to stay in the relationship’. The karmic lesson here involves learning to love myself so that I’m not so dependent on the love from my ‘significant other’.


Element balance and imbalance – here, we are looking for (1) no and/or (2) four or more planets in either fire, earth, air, or water. Again, we’re looking for overcompensation and fixations. I have lots of air but no water in my chart and I often dream of water, not of drowning but of being constantly flooded. Water represents emotions. I don’t deal well with emotions. Put air and water together and you have rain storms. Too many of those at once and there’s flooding.


Moon and the South node –  here, we are looking for deeply instinctual patterns, something that I’ve done over and over before and so keep doing because it is so easy. My Moon is in the 12th house, the most karmic of the houses. This definitely has to do with ‘mother-stuff’ (I spent years on ‘mother’ in my therapy – and I do mean years) and of course emotions. Or rather, it has to doing with being ‘detached’ from my emotions because otherwise it causes too much personal pain with which I cannot deal. Don’t be surprised to learn that my South Node is in Cancer. This is something that I’ve done gazillions of times before.

Doesn’t this tie in a bit too nicely with my lack of ‘water’ and recurrent ‘mother issues’?


What does your chart say about your karma?

Astrology

Dreamland

Have you had a dream that you just can’t forget?


It isn’t just who did what to whom but more the underlying tone of feeling expressed; anxiety, anger, panic, confusion.


The whole thing just doesn’t make sense and it’s queer – queer enough to hold your attention and queer enough to make you a bit nervous about going to bed at night.

We experience all sorts of dreams informing a variety of different subjects. We’re led to believe that this is the way we process that which happened during the day and in many regards, that’s probably true. But according to Liz Greene, the Jungian analysts, at the base of each and every dream is something churning away in our psyche that is trying to break through into consciousness.

In this respect, dreams are the answers to the questions that we didn’t realise that we needed to ask. Questions that are well documented in our birth charts by aspects and connections about which we’d rather not know. Most of the time, the dream fades away and we forget about it. But when the time is ripe (by transit or progression) these dreams make themselves known is such a way that they no longer can be ignored. 

Some time ago, I had a dream that still haunts me today. I had inherited a flat in New York City from my parents, a flat that I’d never even known that they’d had. Even though I had a key, I had trouble finding the door. When finally I was in, I discovered that the flat had been empty for some time. I was amazed, however, that there were so light and sunny rooms to explore.

Could I live here?


At the time, transiting Uranus was making a trine to all of my planets in Libra in my 4thhouse, symbolising my ‘home’. With help from my therapist, I came to understand that I have what I call the ‘Henry James’ syndrome.  Most of his novels explore themes where naïve Americans go back to their European ‘roots’ to obtain the education and polish they believe they didn’t get in their native land.

But eventually (like Henry James himself), they must come to terms with their roots or risking aimlessly wandering like the little boy who refused to grow up, Peter Pan.


As I’m still living in Europe and haven’t been back to the United States in almost 16 years, I’d hazard a guess that I’m still doing my Peter Pan. Little wonder this dream won’t leave me alone. Now I’ve got another set of transits (Pluto in Capricorn) that may force the issue.

Stay tuned.

The Dragon’s Head


Imagine, having a clear picture delivered from your higher self of what you’re meant to accomplish during this lifetime, a picture that ordinary astrological techniques and ordinary astrologers cannot provide?


Background

Just like the Tropical zodiac (developed in ancient Greece) used by western astrologers and the Sidereal zodiac (older than the hills) used by eastern astrologers, the Draconic zodiac is a method of assigning the planets (and other important points) to one of the twelve zodiac signs.

  • The Sidereal zodiac lines the planets up against the fixed stars or constellations.
  • The Tropical zodiac (now 28 degrees out of sync with the Sidereal) is a moving target. It lines 0 degrees Aries up with the vernal equinox which, because of the earth’s wobble on its axis, shifts ever so slightly each year.

The Dragon Speaks

The cosmic dance of Rahu, the Dragon’s head and Ketu, the Dragon’s tail

The Draconic (Dragon) zodiac is a completely different kettle of fish. Although based on the tropical zodiac, it realigns all planetary placements in keeping with the north lunar node (the dragon’s head). It is the cosmic dance of the two lunar nodes which plots the predictable point at which the moon will cross and crisscross the ecliptic (or the apparent path of the sun through the sky). Traditionally, the lunar nodes are more spiritually inclined than the rest of the planets/points; the north lunar node heralds your future, your destiny, whilst the south lunar node symbolises your past, as well as what’s holding you back.

The upside of this is that whilst both the Tropical and Sidereal zodiacs rely completely on the Sun’s movements, the Draconic captures the cyclical waltz between the Moon and the Sun. It is for this reason that the Draconic zodiac is believed to capture the essence of a soul (or higher self) incarnating into the earth plan as well as documenting the karmic strengths and weaknesses carrying on through multiple incarnations (rather like the Akashic Records).

If the natal chart erected using the Tropical zodiac fleshes out the personality or temperament of the incarnated individual, the chart erected using the draconic zodiac provides the skeletal framework. It’s the equivalent of having a snapshot of your higher self and its intended evolutionary goals before coming into this incarnation, highlighting important lessons intended to be learned this time around. 


Destiny Calls

Where the tropical natal chart and the draconic charts intersect, there’s much information to gain; in essence, this is destiny calling.

As you can see, the structure of the chart remains the same but the planets and angles will have changed sign. In my Draconic chart, my Tropical Sun has shifted from Libra to Sagittarius. Indeed, although using the traditional western Tropical zodiac, my chart is primarily air (6 planets), using the Draconic zodiac, it is primarily fire (6 planets). 

Tropical zodiac on the inside compared to Draconic zodiac on the outside ring.

To me this suggests that over many lifetimes, I’ve nurtured a fiery optimistic, spiritual, philosophical, and holistic approach. This has likely been accomplished through extensive travel as well as a good deal of higher education (Sagittarius). 

My natal Tropical Moon in Gemini loves learning, reading everything upon which I can lay my hands. Certainly, this would fuel a continuing need to develop my wisdom but Sagittarius implies more understanding than does Gemini, which is generally more interested in gathering information than doing much with it.

My Draconic Moon in Leo may help here because it comes more from the heart (Leo) than the head (Gemini). Leo brings natural authority and fierce sense of pride to the table, a personal pride that quite honestly, I’ve never actually felt before. Having my Draconic Mercury in Sagittarius will also help in applying what I learn across a broader board. It might also be the source of my active interest in creative writing, which I’ve long believed is not really explained by my natal chart.  

In my Tropical birth chart I have no fire and so I have never believed that my intuition (fire) was reliable. But then again, looking back over nearly six decades, my intuition never has let me down. I also have struggled keeping up faith in myself and in life in general, but all that fire in my Draconic chart suggests that perhaps I overdid this (i.e. held too high an opinion of myself) in prior lifetimes and so in this life, I needed to learn some humility.

This theme of humility is mirrored in the closest connection I’ve noted between the two charts – that of the Tropical Pluto sitting close to Draconic Jupiter. Together, these suggest a desire for power that might have got out of hand in past lives. There’s also plenty to suggest that Jupiter (king of the gods) is my spiritual guiding light (all that Sagittarius, which Jupiter rules) but in this life my Jupiter in Gemini is in detriment. Perhaps I need to find a new and less traditional way to express my urge for power?


Destiny is Answered

I’m still working with this new zodiac and am very excited about what it might add to my astrological coaching mix. Next, I’ll explore midpoints and synastry. There’s also a whole new way of thinking about transits and progressions. Watch this space.

UK Tory Leadership Challenge


Some believe it’s smooth sailing for Boris Johnson in the 2019 Tory leadership challenge. But based upon his current Solar Return (SR) (2019/2020), I suggest that even if he should prevail, he will neither prove effective nor enjoy a comfortable ride.


This SR chart has no angular planets (i.e. planets conjunct the ‘cross of matter’). This suggests that during this period (birthday to birthday), Boris will not be able to make a significant impact in the world at large. 

The only planet making a tight Ptolemaic aspect to the angles (in this case the Ascendant/Descendant axis), is the Moon which suggests that Boris might be prone to ‘wearing his heart on his sleeve’. According to Ebertin, this combination does impact one’s personal relationship with others, but more likely than not, in a disingenuous (and disharmonious) way. . 


Trying to be all things to all people never wins the day


Boris Solar Return 2019/20

The most remarkable thing in this chart is its stellium of planets/energy in Capricorn in the 10th house – Moon, Pluto, Saturn, and the South Node. This is a very public place– and so may well suggest taking on the role of party leader but again, it’s not likely to go well for Boris.

According to Ebertin, the combination of Moon/Saturn/Nodal axis suggests isolation, and inhibitions in organisations and association. Feelings of loneliness and standing alone in life are indicated. Add Pluto to the mix and there’s a necessity to rely only on oneself.

Tied in with this stellium by opposition is Mars/Mercury in Cancer. This might add the ability to think and act strategically so as to further one’s plans. Equally, it might suggest rashness and the tendency to exaggerate not to mention quarrelling and fault-finding. Ebertin even suggests this combination can result in using the ideas of others for one’s own benefit.


A Tiger does not easily change his stripes


What you have seen in the past with Boris, is very likely what you’ll see in the future. It is also worth noting that in his natal chart, Boris not only has a high dose of Gemini but no Capricorn. His Saturn, natural ruler of Capricorn, is in Pisces where it does not do Capricorn things like accomplished leadership well.  

This suggests that the Capricorn energies reflected by that stellium in the SR return chart for 2019/2020 do not sit well with the basic temperament of Boris.  To succeed with Capricorn energy requires persistence, hard work and concentration, anathema to any Gemini.
