Theresa May gave a robust speech today in Westminster as David Davis, her Brexit negotiator (in name anyway), and Boris Johnson, her hapless Foreign Secretary, (he might have been pushed) exit stage left. The media are shrieking headlines about shattering blows to a beleaguered PM and an imminent no-confidence vote. But there’s nothing much showing up on her Government chart, barring a setback in the final days of this month into early August and again in the first half of October as tr Saturn opposes the 10th house Mars. That apart there are a couple of Jupiters running till September to provide buoyancy.
Her own chart looks mighty confused this Sept/Oct and panicky in November/December but most of the horror won’t occur till 2019 on either chart.
Boris Johnson, 19 June 1964 2pm New York, is wading through a minefield in thick fog this year, perhaps facing up to the consequences of his miscalculations. Much of that continues through 2019, though he’ll recover some of his mojo from April 2019 onwards with tr Pluto trine his Mars/Jupiter midpoint. His ambitions always were firmly focused on getting the keys to No 10, but his lamentable performance in the Foreign Office and Brexit gaffes have shot his popularity within the party way down the list. He’ll certainly be at daggers’ drawn with Theresa May from early 2019 onwards so he may be back into the fray then.
Dominic Raab,25 February 1974, has stepped in to take Davis’s place but since most of the negotiations are handled by the civil servant Olly Robbins, who works directly to No 10, it’s not clear how much input he’ll have. He’s a Brexiteer and generally well thought of, with a legal background, worked for one of the Palestinian negotiators of the Oslo peace accords, assessed World Bank projects on the West Bank, been involved for the Foreign Office at The Hague bringing war criminals to justice, advised on the Arab–Israeli conflict, the European Union, and Gibraltar. So his background is wide-ranging.
He’s a Sun Pisces square Neptune; with an intellectually talented Air Grand Trine of Saturn in Gemini trine Uranus trine Jupiter in Aquarius, with Saturn opposition North Node in Sagittarius; and a heavyweight Mars in Taurus square Jupiter trine Venus in Capricorn. He’ll be one to watch for the future. Though not for the next two years which look jolting, confused, panicky and not progressive. He’ll bounce up in 2021/22.
His relationship with Olly Robbins, looks business-like though slightly teeth-gritting; and is under a black cloud around the time that is also afflicted on the T May Government chart – late this month into early August, and again early October two weeks. Perhaps when Brussels says a resounding NON to everything.
So who knows? It could be brick wall time for her but she has some of Merkel’s Houdini qualities and has been written off umpteen times in the past year.
