Austria New centrist Chancellor – battling the far-right

Christian Kern ChancellorAustria



Austria has a new Social Democrat Chancellor, Christian Kern, who replaced the retiring head. He could stay in power till 2018 but the rise of the far right anti-immigration party, expected to win this weekend’s Presidential election (a largely ceremonial role), may make that impossible. Neither two major parties made it through to the final of the Presidential election which is unheard of.

He was born 4 Jan 1966 so is a Sun Capricorn trine Uranus Pluto in Virgo and sextile Saturn.  It’s a very Mutable chart (seems to be a week for them!) with that opposition widely square Mercury in Sagittarius and Jupiter in Gemini.

He has tr Neptune conjunct his Saturn from this June onwards which is confused and uncertain; with an extremely challenging and risky Solar Arc Pluto square Mars this year; and an undermining Solar Arc Neptune conjunct Sun in 2017.

This mirrors the Austria chart, 12 Nov 1918 4pm Vienna, which also has Solar Arc Neptune conjunct its Sun in 2017; and a sharp-change-of-direction tr Uranus square MC this year; followed from 2018 with a meltdown tr Pluto conjunct MC.

His swearing in chart, 17 May 2016 5pm, has an intense, hidden Taurus Sun conjunct the destructive fixed star Algol and conjunct Venus Mercury. Mercury is trine Jupiter trine Pluto in the Earth Grand Trine so there will be a confident push but that forms onto a Kite with the Jupiter opposition Neptune which isn’t great.  Plus there’s a divisive Uranus in the 7th so co-operation with other parties will be difficult to accomplish.

The Bank of Austria is certainly having a nervy and discouraging year with the tr Saturn square tr Neptune hitting on the Gemini Sun opposition Uranus into early 2017.
