Boris Johnson – a Trumpian teflon coating ++ Extra

Boris Johnson looks a shoe-in for the Theresa May replacement in No 10, Leader of the Tory Party and from the polls a certainty for winning a large majority at a general election.  Unless he messes up between now and mid-July when the final vote is taken by the party. And it would have to be said his astrology isn’t remotely encouraging despite the raptures being voiced by the right wing press.

He’s got tr Saturn opposition his Mars/Uranus midpoint until mid June which is lack of adaptability, a loss or injury according to Ebertin.  He also has tr Pluto opposition his Mars/Pluto midpoint from July 11th onwards for a few weeks which is completely blocked and irritated. And no Jupiter uplift except from the July Cancer Eclipse which is conjunct his Solar Arc Jupiter and, birth time being accurate at 2pm, his Midheaven, which latter isn’t necessarily a sign of progress, more likely a crisis.

Lynton Crosby, 23 August 1956, who is running his campaign, has a couple of ominous transiting Saturn blocks for the next few weeks which don’t normally bring moments of cheer. But he does have tr Pluto square his Jupiter/Node midpoint from 11 July onwards which will be upbeat – so there’s faint hope from that for a good result from his point of view. Though he may also just be pleased to be cut loose and off elsewhere.

Boris’s relationship with the UK chart is fairly horrific in essence with a gritty, bad-tempered composite Saturn Mars and Mars opposition Neptune which latter would leave the suspicion that putting the country first wouldn’t be on his agenda.

His relationship with the Tory Party 1834 chart is equally grim with a composite Mars Pluto opposition Neptune Saturn.  So no love lost there. The 1912 Party chart is marginally better with him though there’s a delusional, high-hopes-lead-to-disappointment feel about it.

If by some weird mischance he does get in, the immediate future isn’t encouraging from late September to late January 2020 which looks like a swampy downhill slide, riddled with failure.

What is so puzzling is that he has a Trumpian knack of sliding out from under any number of massive missteps in the past and his manifest character flaws don’t appear to register on his seeming popularity. Two slippery Geminis. If it didn’t matter so much it would be an interesting wait and see exercise.

When he became Mayor of London to everyone’s surprise in May 2008 he had his Solar Arc Jupiter conjunct his Sun and then Venus in the first year thereafter so it was a peak of good fortune in his life. There isn’t anything similar around at the moment as he pitches his sights even higher. He does, of course, have his Jupiter opposition Neptune natally, so his confidence will tend to over-shoot and he then goes off into lies, delusions and general mayhem.

His Solar Return for 2019 does not look like an overwhelming success with the accident-prone and hugely frustrating Mars opposition Saturn Pluto anchoring it down.

  1. Matthew Parris has written yet another magnificent Article today in the Times (today it’s re Boris Johnson).
    Was wondering what outlook, what you think of MP Marjorie?
    He was born on 7 August 1949 in Johannesburg, South Africa.
    And thank you if you look into him.

  2. I did enjoy Marina Hyde’s concise description of Bojo in her latest column: “a subclinical narcissist whose chief qualification for the gig is knowing the ancient Greek for raghead.”

  3. Hello Marjorie
    If we assume Munchausen will win the vote and become PM is there anything to glean astrologically as to the tenure of the appointment as well as the overall style? The latter comparable to Hieronimous Bosch at his darkest obv. This asked in the spirit of the majority of your contributors who appear to want shot of the appalling oaf at the earliest opportunity

  4. If Boris Johnson becomes PM and pushes Gemini style for his master Murdoch’s desire to expedite putting the EU and Westminster’s originally proposed Brexit border in the Irish sea, his and others in the financial elite’s pandering these past 7 years or so to the once politically useful loyalist paramilitary backed DUP, will find themselves and their citizens in England suffering at the violent hands of some deeply psychopathic, very angry and truly frightening true Brit volk gangs.
    Forget the notion of a repeat of the civil war in Ireland. Yoking their political power base to the British made DUP extremists as a Trojan horse to deliver leaving the EU, will deliver an English civil war.

    I suppose the reality is though looking at the world these past 40 years, the international money behind Brexit is not really bothered whether they create Sudan on the Thames as long as their billions % callous exploitation are safe from taxation.
    Fools and their Gold.

  5. Thank you Marjorie. Seems as if the sunlit mayoral moment has passed then. So if he does become the next PM it’s looking as if he’s bitten off too much….which won’t surprise many people, other than his supporters and Boris himself. But what people are saying about others running the country while BJ is simply a front man is chillingly similar to comments about Gemini Donald Trump around the time of his election. Once the genie is out of the bottle it’s hard to get him back in!

  6. Thank you for this.
    it seems overwhelmingly likely that Johnson gets into the final 2, but I suppose he could be de-railed by a scandal or performing really badly in a debate, and particularly if it is exposed that he has promised contradictory things to different groups of supporters.
    It is also possible that he starts to go stale on the members. There was a very perceptive piece in the Times yesterday which observed that the Boris “cripes what now” act is now 2 decades old and the joke – basically 1 joke and 1 speech- is wearing thin. A good debater with a grudge (Gove) or a good debater with nothing to lose (Stewart) could really damage him.
    Even if he gets elected, the Tories plus DUP only currently have a notional majority of 3, with one MP rumoured to be joining the Lib Dems and another having stated he would sit as an independent if Johnson was leader. So he may have real difficulties even getting to take office as PM, if he can’t demonstrate that he has the confidence of the House.
    After that, he has painted himself into a corner with a seemingly undeliverable promise of leaving the EU on 31 October, come hell or high water. I can only think this would lead to a General Election, sooner rather than later, with limited prospects of success.
    Interesting times!

  7. Gemini’s who have become Prime Minister include Eden and then in the late eighteenth century Pitt the younger and Lord Liverpool. The latter was PM around the time of Peterloo which has some resonance as it occurred at a time of Saturn Pluto conjunction in Capricorn.
    A big mistake that the Conservatives make is to think that Corbyn is unelectable. As a consequence they think they have a free pass to indulge in fantasy politics and there is not a complicated problem that does not have an easy answer from a back of an envelope. A similar illusion affects some of the labour people. I must say that I find Corbyn puzzling. With so much Gemini he is very fixed. With some flexibility he could be putting this government to the sword. No doubt like them he is in a neptunian bubble.
    One hopes the upcoming eclipses and conjunctions give some shock treatment without too much collateral damage.

    • He does have Moon Mars in Taurus square Pluto and widely square Saturn in Leo with Jupiter in Aquarius which is pretty fixed; and has Neptune tied into his Air planets. He’s all about ideology and not much about action. Anyways he could care less about the EU – he’s always seen it as a capitalist sink hole.

  8. Maybe his chart isn’t the best indicator of his success as PM. Lots of people are suggesting that if he wins, he’ll simply be the face of the cabinet. And that there’ll be a team of people actually running the country while he messes up in the media.

    • Yeah, apparently some of his peers are happy to back him because he’s a memorable personality. They’ll do the real work, but also get hands on experience running the country.

      • Don’t bank on it – that’s what Virgoan Gove thought back in 2016 and why he had to withdraw support when Johnson refused to confirm earlier vague assurances that he’d made. Of course, Teflon Boris got all the public sympathy while ‘keeper of the flame’ Gove was vilified as a result.

  9. And just imagine a GE followed by a Johnston / Farage coalition. Wouldn’t that be fine and dandy? No matter who becomes PM now, by choosing between a bunch of corrupt, druggy, lying narcissists, the UK is going right down the stank. And when I say choosing, we’re talking about Tory politicians followed by Tory members choosing the next PM. To h*ll with the rest of us. Commonly known as living in a dictatorship.

  10. I still haven’t got over the fact that he became Mayor of London, never mind PM.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, Gemini isn’t a sign that becomes UK PM that often? I think the last was Anthony Eden, the former Foreign Secretary who had to make a humiliating climb down after being forced to accept that Britain was no longer a world superpower (and he at least had some talent and experience).

    I think Corbyn is just about tolerated, Johnson AND Corbyn won’t be. There’s a real danger that it’ll be the last straw and tipping point which triggers major splits in both parties, heralding some new calibration and realignment that will be chaotic for a while. We’ll certainly be in no fit state to exit the EU or do much of anything until the dust settles.

    • There is a possibility that Boris could lose his Uxbridge & Ruislip seat in the next GE. There will be a vote of no confidence in the government which will be supported by Tory rebels such as Ken Clarke & other more surprising names (at the moment they are holding fire until the crunch point arrives), if Boris as PM tries to push a no-deal Brexit through parliament before 31st Oct. The partial solar eclipse at 10 degrees of Cancer in July 2019 is close to the MC in Boris’ chart.

      What is it about Corbyn that repels people so much? I am genuinely curious.

      People on twitter, like James O’Brien (privately educated, LSE) command great support for railing against Corbyn. Is it Corbyn’s stance on Brexit? He has always aimed for a soft Brexit. Many working class Labour voters in the north and Wales voted for Brexit. Corbyn can’t just alienate them for Labour middle-class, metropolitian, remain supporters. The danger of the Brexit Party targeting those disillusioned working class voters who have genuine greivances at being completely abandoned by consecutive Conservative & ‘New Labour’ govts. cannot be underestimated (this not just about Brexit anymore); Nigel Farage has made it very clear that the BXP is now aiming for those ‘excluded’ white, working class, traditionally Labour areas in his fight against the political establishment. Farage has very cleverly promoted the current Labour admin. as part of the ‘elite’, whilst reinventing himself as Nigel ‘working class hero’ Farage. Yet Corbyn and Tory-lite ‘New Labour’ have nothing in common. The primary focus of Corbyn’s Labour policy is on reducing the extreme social & economic inequality in the UK.

      Is it Labour plans to reverse privatisation in the NHS, to reverse universal credit, the growth of food banks caused by austerity, to chase after corporations that avoid paying taxes in the UK etc, that causes so much ‘centrist’ widespread disgust and fury being directed at Corbyn? Just curious.

      • *Boris’ majority was slashed from 11,000 to 5000 by Labour in 2017 GE. Obviously, this is a target seat for Labour. The momentum for Labour seems to have faltered (like to hear suggestions as to why?), but Boris’ seat is still a target & vulnerable.

      • I was referring to the parliamentary parties, not the membership or wider public. However, I’m not so sure that any committed leave voter is going to vote for a party that sits on the fence, especially not now that Farage is back, so why bother? Meanwhile, remain voters, who naturally looked to the opposition party, are walking away in droves.

        • My young nieces and nephew have now abandoned Labour in favour of the Libdems because they know that Corbyn is ideologically opposed to the EU. They are staunch Remainers from a Working Class background and very, very angry with Corbynite Labour.

      • Leo – Since you asked. If Corbyn’s Labour had offered a powerful anti Brexit message it would have had the potential to galvanise all remainers to Labours cause. Instead, I feel that he, and his party have been virtually unseen and unheard in opposition to this issue. I’ve found him to be petty and ineffective, much to my disappointment. I support his social agenda but he’s too idealistic for the city and the market’s tastes which puts people off I think.

  11. It’s like a mad dream. I imagine the civil servants and security services are huddling in corners, plotting his downfall. I’m wondering, too, what sort of transits/solar arc etc he had when he became Mayor?

  12. If he does win, I doubt his staying power. I don’t think he’ll stick around for long as PM, especially once Brexit is sorted.

  13. He’s a disaster for the country. His cronies in the Tory party put him there because he’ll outflank Farage on the right somehow, and win then a decent majority at the next election once Brexit is done with. Delusional with banana republic levels of lies, distortion and jobs for the boys. Is it possible to draw any conclusions from the Tory party charts, as of now? It all boils down to self preservation I think.

    • What are the chances that Boris gets the top job but messes up so quickly and doesn’t deliver so he ends up out on his ear very quickly? Rory Stewart is a ‘disruptor’. It’s a pity that Hunt hasn’t done as well as he should. Once again it’s a question of style (metaphorical in Boris’s case) over substance. I am that bizarre thing a Tory Remainer for my sins…

  14. I can’t see how he doesn’t win the leadership however hopefully if the chart if correct its constant failures for him from the get go.
