A happy occasion to brighten spirits in advance with Boris and Carrie having sent out ‘put in your diary’ cards for a putative wedding on July 30 2022. Given her ambitious and mega-expensive decoration scheme for the No 10 makeover she no doubt wants time to plan a showy event to remember.
The chosen day has a firecracker, argumentative Mars Uranus conjunction square Mercury Moon opposition Saturn so it does not point to a calm or particularly upbeat mood.
Given Boris’s marital and romantic track record it wouldn’t be surprising if he viewed the prospect with some trepidation and there are hints of alarm on his chart. His Solar Arc Saturn is in a gloomy opposition to his Moon; tr Saturn is in a discouraging and dutiful opposition to his Solar Arc Sun, Venus; and tr Pluto is in a frustrating, trapped opposition to his Solar Arc Mars. Plus a trio of transits to midpoints which are less than euphoric.
Carrie, 17 March 1988, is in marginally better spirits with tr Pluto sextile her Pisces Sun exactly and her Solar Arc Sun will be in a confident, lucky conjunction to her Jupiter then or immediately after. She will have a few nervy and sinking moments, but looks in better shape than the groom. Though she will have tr Neptune conjunct her Sun in 2023/4 which will be lacklustre, perhaps disappointing.
Their relationship chart has a successful, confident composite Sun Node Jupiter – with both the Sun and Jupiter on the apex of a Yod to a hyper-ambitious Pluto sextile Neptune. That is yet another self-righteous, over-grandiose Yod, making the fourth this week. The Yod itself is an indication of a relationship that will have fateful consequences for both and will change their lifestyles radically.
There is a welded-together Saturn trine Pluto trine Venus in Air signs, giving them a strong intellectual and ideological bond; though with constant running tensions from the Uranus square Saturn tied into Jupiter and the Sun.
This year is seeing their connection under a good deal of pressure with the tr Saturn square tr Uranus battering the composite Sun and a sinking-panic tr Neptune conjunct the composite Mars picking up from the 30th of this month and running off and on until February 2023.
Usually I don’t like raining on a happy couple’s parade but given the triumph-of-hope-over-experience nature of this beast, I’d see 2025 or thereabouts as being the danger point – with tr Uranus in hard aspect to Boris’s Sun/Moon midpoint and tr Saturn conjunct Carrie’s Sun/Moon. Also Boris’s Moon catches the tr Pluto square in 2023/24. And the relationship chart will be under severe pressure from tr Pluto conjunct the composite Saturn and square Uranus.
All this with a caveat that there is much water to flow under many bridges between now and all may change.
