The Boris Cabinet reshuffle has brought in even more malleable, jitterbug Mutable types. Like attracts like. From the Latin mutabilis “changeable,” from mutare “to change. Of which Boris is the walking example with a Sun Venus Mercury in Gemini and a T square to Uranus Pluto in Virgo opposition Saturn in Pisces square Mars in Gemini. Such an imbalance leads to extreme restlessness, an inconsistent and unmethodical approach, poor concentration, indecision, nervous strain. A focal point Mutable Mars is even more so – scattered, disorganised, easily bored, overly impulsive, taking no heed of consequences.[Mutable signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. As opposed to Fixed Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius. And Cardinal (initiative) Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn.]
Boris’s Rasputin sidekick Dominic Cummings is a Sun Neptune in Sagittarius opposition Saturn square Mars (Moon) in Pisces – and he appears to thrive on destructive chaos for its own sake. What anchors him is a fanatical ideologue’s Air Grand Trine of Pluto trine Saturn trine Node.
Michael Gove is a Sun, Mercury, Venus in Virgo with Uranus Pluto also in Virgo.
Priti Patel, Secretary of State is a Mars Saturn in Gemini opposition Neptune, with her Aries Sun in a Cardinal T Square.
Dominic Raab, Foreign Secretary, is a Sun Mercury in Pisces square Neptune.
And last but not least is the new Chancellor of the Exchequer, Risha Sunak, 12 May 1980, of the billionaire father-in-law, who stepped into the effectively downgraded Treasury job when Sajid Javid refused to bow the knee to Cummings. He has Jupiter Mars in Virgo with a Mutable T Square of Neptune opposition Venus square Saturn in Virgo plus a stalwart and steadier Taurus Sun opposition Uranus.
He looks uncertain, discontented and panicked from late April onwards, on and off till late 2021 with tr Neptune opposition his Saturn with exceptionally tricky relationships with both Boris and Cummings, so conflict between No 10 and No 11 may not have been resolved with a change of cast.
It just seems strange to have so many chameleon, ‘windmill in a storm’ Mutable types in charge of a Fixed UK. Though what they all home into since their Mutable planets tend to be in early degrees is the UK Pluto at 2 Pisces which was elbowed by tr Uranus sextile as Brexit got underway in earnest this last New Year. The Mutable ‘going with the flow’ can be helpful in times of rapid change but is not helpful for building strong, stable foundations once the transition is accomplished.
It’s perhaps also indicative of their over adaptability and susceptibility to being pushed around by a strong figure, which the unelected PM adviser Dominic Cummings appears to be. He’s a man on a mission to turn everything on its head no matter how much he has to lie and deceive to achieve his aims. His Pluto (on one leg of his wedded-to-a-cause, true believer Air Grand Trine) sits on the UK Uranus and his Uranus squares the UK Moon opposition Sun and opposes the UK Node. Change for change’s sake appears to be his motto – which is the negative face of Uranus. Collapse the old structure with no ability to put better in its place.
Add on: A quick scan round another nine Cabinet members, some old and some new. Some like Robert Buckland, Grant Shapps and Brandon Lewis have five or six Mutable planets – the first two in Virgo, Lewis mainly Gemini. Ben Wallace and Stephen Barclay have Venus Mars in Gemini square Pluto in Virgo. Barclay, Lewis and Matt Hancock also have Saturn in hard aspect to Neptune in Mutables. Suella Braverman, the new Attorney General for England and Wales, 3 April 1980, has a Mutable T Square of Saturn in Virgo opposition Mercury square Neptune in Sagittarius.
Open the Cabinet doors and windows to let in a Force Nine Gale and they’d scatter to the four winds.
