Forward influences

The neurotic Saturn Neptune square wanes after September and will be gone by this December. The disruptive, rebellious Uranus square Pluto has no more exact aspects, but is still in orb till mid 2017. Then it rapidly pulls away.

2017 – has the ‘constructive change’ Uranus trine Saturn in Sagittarius which picks up from this December and repeats twice more before Nov 2017. Plus a more upbeat Jupiter in Libra square Pluto and opposition Uranus.

2018  –  Saturn moves into Capricorn (actually from Dec 2017) which can suggest tough conditions, though Uranus moving into Taurus in the May forms an earthy and positive trine to Saturn. Jupiter in Scorpio trines Neptune which will be mild.

2019 – tr Saturn is in orb of a conjunction to Pluto, though doesn’t hit exact until 2020. This one is a slog bringing deprivation, hardship, war. There’s also the more minor, financial and high-hopes, bubble-bursting Jupiter in Sagittarius square Neptune; and Saturn sextile Neptune.

2020 – The Saturn Pluto conjunction comes exact in January and stays in orb all year. What will help is Jupiter (from Dec 2019) moving through Capricorn and conjunct Pluto and Saturn which will take the edge off the discouragement. Jupiter will trine Uranus as well. Saturn moves into Aquarius.

2021 – Jupiter Saturn conjunct in Aries square Uranus. Jupiter Saturn is idealistic, especially in Aquarius; though Saturn square Uranus is associated with economic dips and tension.

The cycles keep rolling round but it looks like a marginally (cross fingers) easier two years ahead before Saturn Pluto picks up.

Thomas Mair – unstable white supremacist

Thomas Mair

 

Thomas Mair has been arrested and charged with the murder of Jo Cox MP and other offences. He was born 12 August 1963 in Kilmarnock, Scotland (anyone with a birth time, gratefully received); was brought up largely by grandparents, has a history of mental illness and although known as quiet and helpful, had connections with American Neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups.

Time of birth will make a considerable difference but even without it – he has a Leo Sun Venus opposition Saturn in Aquarius square Neptune probably opposition a Taurus Moon. So both his Sun and Moon are damped down and restricted by low self-worth Saturn and delusional Neptune. He also has a wide T Square of Mars in Libra opposition Jupiter square North Node in Cancer which would give him a strand of confidence; and Mercury in Virgo conjunct Pluto and Uranus, so mentally pressured and erratic.

His Mars was square Jo Cox’s Saturn Mercury Sun in Cancer and conjunct her Pluto – so there would be something about her work with the disadvantaged of other countries?, or her toughness which sparked his anger.

Their ‘relationship’ chart has a composite Sun square Saturn, trine Neptune and sextile Pluto Uranus – all very outer planet, so arguably less of a personal connection and more to do with what she represented.

Horrible tragedy. What is striking is how often the ISIS terrorist murderers have mental problems, and the Neo- Nazi/supremacist types ditto.

Chelsea Clinton Mezvinsky – a new addition

Aidan Clinton Mevzinsky

 

 

Chelsea Clinton had her second baby, a boy called Aidan on Saturday at 7.41am in New York. Born a day before the Full Moon he has a Sun Gemini in a charming conjunction to Venus in Cancer, both in the 12th house, with Moon conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius across the zodiac in the 5th, though too wide to be an opposition. He’s also got a Mutable Grand Cross of Mercury in Gemini opposition Moon Saturn square Neptune opposition Jupiter North Node in Virgo – so highly restless, scattered, will go off in all directions at once. Plus a Yod of a 10th house Uranus sextile Sun inconjunct a 4th house Mars in Scorpio, so problems fitting in, anger issues. He’ll be quite a whirlwind personality.

 

He’s different from his sister Charlotte, 26 Sept 2014 7.03pm, though both share a Cancer Ascendant. She has a more Cardinal chart with a Libra Sun, Uranus on the Ascendant in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn in the 10th; with an entrepreneurial Fire Grand Trine.

Both will make their mark in some way. Charlotte’s Pluto in the 10th will make her influential later in life; while he will carve out a different kind of career, perhaps in communication with Uranus in the 10th.

He’ll possibly get on better with his father Marc Mezvinsky since there’s a buddy-bonding composite Sun Venus conjunction in their relationship chart. He’ll find his mother overly hard-working, more of a disciplinarian, rather an unpredictable presence in his life. He’ll get on well with his sister with Jupiter in his 3rd.

Boris Johnson – not his best birthday

Boris JohnsonBoris Johnson Solar Return16

 

As the dreaded EU Referendum date draws nearer and the polls shifting marginally towards Remain (not that they are remotely reliable) Boris Johnson is kind of celebrating his 52nd birthday. Though with tr Saturn square tr Neptune in hard aspect to his Pluto he won’t be that happy.

His Solar Return from June 2015 to June 2016 had an intense and argumentative Pluto in the 9th and a serious, though also not entirely popular Saturn in the 7th.

His Solar Return for the coming year has a change-of-direction Uranus exactly on the MC square Pluto in the 6th, which looks like a job/career upheaval with some stress attached. And an unhappy Mars in Scorpio in the 4th on the focal point of a Yod to Uranus sextile Sun – so emotionally a teeth-grinding year. And the Mutable Grand Cross is Neptune in 8th opposition Jupiter square Saturn Moon in 4th opposition Mercury – all of which looks emotionally downbeat, despite a friendly Sun Venus in the 11th.

Donald Trump – Paul Manafort trying to introduce gravitas

Paul ManafortManafort Trump compDonald Trump

 

 

Donald Trump has parted company with his excitable campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. The seasoned republican strategist Paul Manafort will take over.

Manafort, 1 April 1949 Connecticut, has been brought in to focus Trump more on policy than personality, which certainly fits with PM’s Saturn in Virgo sitting on Trump’s Ascendant and conjunct Trump’s Mars in Leo. It’s a tough, fairly volatile relationship with a chained-together composite Sun square Saturn Pluto; and an explosive Mars Uranus conjunction.

Manafort is a fiery, go-getting Sun Mars Venus Mercury in Aries opposition Neptune, trine Pluto so he’s no slouch when it comes to selling and marketing. His Aries planets fall in Trump’s 8th house which may not be too comfortable, but he’ll be more of a behind-the-scenes operator than Lewandowski.

There’s not much transit wise on their relationship to give much of a guide, without PM’s birth time. On midpoints they look very down at the moment and aggravated September to mid October; with one up and one down influence over the election. Tho’ the up could be relief at not having to work together anymore.

Spain General Election re-run – far-left pulling together

Spain

 

It isn’t just the UK EU referendum which is worrying Brussels, the Spanish General Election due on June 26th could also drop a bombshell on their lap. The non-result in last year’s election with no coalition agreed has seen months of a caretaker government. Now the left and far-left parties have joined in a united front against the former ruling People’s Party, led by Mariano Rajoy.

The Spain, 22 Nov 1975 12.45pm chart, has a 10th house Neptune at 11 Sagittarius which has tr Saturn conjunct and tr Neptune square late this month. So not a result which will inspire the country’s confidence.

The Bank of Spain, 2 June 1782, has an 11 degree Gemini Sun and the Madrid Stock Exchange, 20 Oct 1831, has Saturn at 11 Virgo – and they are also suffering from an all-round financial panic.

Alberto Garzon, 9 Oct 1985, and Pablo Turrion, 17 Oct 1978, are the main leaders of the new party, both communist in background. Both charts look marginally disappointed on the day itself, but definitely on the upswing through July.

Mariano Rajoy, 27 March 1955 12 noon Santiago di Compostela, looks confused and uncertain this month with tr Pluto conjunct his Sun/Neptune into mid July. He’s not a man to budge easily with Mars Moon in Taurus opposition Saturn square Pluto. But he now has tr Neptune just across his MC into his 10th for years to come which is usually not ego-supportive for political ambition; with tr Uranus moving into his 11th next year shifting his future plans considerably.

Bob Geldof – doesn’t do moderation

Bob Geldof

 

Bob Geldof, singer-songwriter, political activist and now entertainment business mogul worth a reputed £32 million, didn’t make himself popular this week by staging a crass demo on a Thames cruiser for the Remain campaign, V-signs and all.

Born 5 Oct 1951 2.20pm Dublin, he always knew how to rock anyone’s boat with a spear-carrying Uranus on the point of a T Square to Jupiter in upfront Aries opposition Sun Saturn Mercury and Neptune in Libra. His intervention in the famine in Africa and subsequent Band Aid gained him plaudits, though also some criticism. Uranus can be a torch-bearer, lighting the way into the unknown but it can also be chaotic and overly honest. In his case he also has a packed, communicative 9th house with his four Libra planets there and a passionately enthusiastic Venus Mars in Virgo – so when he wants to spread the word, he doesn’t hold back. He also has an influential Pluto in the 8th.

He’s still recovering from the death of his daughter, Peaches, two years ago from an overdose, when his Solar Arc Saturn was conjunct his 12th house Moon, so a sore loss.  Tr Neptune and tr Saturn have been in hard aspect to his Moon through this year so not a great time for him emotionally. With confusion from tr Pluto square Sun/Neptune and similar from tr Pluto square his Neptune in 2017/18.

With tr Saturn aiming for his Ascendant at the end of this year, he’ll want to draw back from too heavy a work schedule and find that his efforts bring less success thereafter. Tr Uranus moving across his IC in 2018 suggest a major domestic upheaval.

Rick Astley – returning to his musical roots

Rick Astley

 

Pop star Rick Astley has returned to the top of the UK album chart after a gap of 29 years. His last success in 1987 was a hit in 25 countries and overall he sold 40 million records. He retired from his public music career aged 27, fed up with the business side. But has been a You Tube phenomenon in recent years and has migrated from pop to a more mature, soulful sound.

Born 6 Feb 1966 in Warrington, England, he has a Sun Mercury in Aquarius trine Jupiter in Gemini; and his Sun is quincunx Uranus Pluto in Virgo and square Neptune in Scorpio – so quite a mix of light, lucky, musical and feeling he never quite fitted in.  His Saturn in Pisces opposes Uranus Pluto squaring onto an expansive Jupiter in Gemini – so even through his low-profile years he would always maintain his optimism. Tr Uranus is sextile his Jupiter this year, into early 2017.

There’s no birth time so no way of knowing what comes next but a couple of his Jupiter midpoints get a real boost in 2017/18, so maybe there’ll be more to come.

Michael Chong – a new kind of Canadian Conservative

Michael Chong

 

Michael Chong, 22 Nov 1971 Windsor, Canada, has thrown his hat into the ring for the leadership of the Canadian Conservative Party, to replace the much disliked Stephen Harper who has resigned. The son of immigrants, Chinese and Dutch, he is for an inclusive country and known as a politician who will stand up for his principles.

He’s a last degree Sun Scorpio conjunct Neptune in Sagittarius; with Jupiter Mercury Venus also in Sagittarius.  His Neptune opposes Saturn squaring on to Mars in Pisces, so he will be idealistic, go-ahead, vibrant though also overly restless and highly strung.

He’s got pluses and minuses in the run up to the election next year with some setbacks and some boosts.  I’d worry about his Jupiter in Sagittarius especially picking up the tr Neptune square next year which can cause high hopes to collapse. Though he does have tr Uranus square his Mars/Jupiter over the election which certainly looks lucky.
