Launching a government on an exact Full Moon in Sagittarius/Gemini squaring onto Neptune in Pisces, as Theresa May’s did, was never going to lead to constructive progress. The list of attributes to such a focal point Neptune is not heartening – disorganised, credulous, gullible, chameleon-like, misleading (intentionally and otherwise), lacking willpower, disliking meeting obstacles head-on, poor observational qualities, a tendency to escape away from reality into an imaginative world which feels more comforting.
Just as Chancellor Philip Hammond, capitalising on Theresa May’s vacation absence, brought some sane business plans to the table about a transitional exit period, saying there was a broad consensus in the Cabinet, he was promptly slapped down by the ever-excitable Liam Fox and Boris Johnson. The Full Moon, of course, is also split and Neptune is not the planet to tie the opposing extremes together into a coherent direction.
Matthew Parris, Times columnist and former Tory MP, has described the Conservative Party as ‘criminally irresponsible’ for turning Brexit into ‘a humiliating shambles.’ ‘Thirteen months since the referendum and the Conservatives still can’t decide even the broadest outline of the terms on which we hope to leave.’ ‘It now appears they and their leader started the countdown to Britain’s expulsion without even the vaguest plan for what we’d be aiming to achieve, let alone realistically likely to achieve.’
Tr Neptune has now reversed to exactly square the Government MC and hovers thereabouts into 2018 by which time it picks up the Sun/MC midpoint and then squares Sun and Moon in 2019 – if it lasts that long, and there’s nothing too obvious pointing to a total collapse, the shambles will continue.
Philip Hammond and Amber Rudd have the most help from lucky Jupiter willing them on through 2017/18. Though Hammond has a downer from early this October to early January 2018 as tr Neptune squares his Sagittarius Sun Mercury. Amber Rudd looks completely undercut during that Oct to Jan period as well, though it may be different problems since as Home Secretary she has ongoing responsibility for law and order amongst a broad portfolio. Hammond will bounce again in 2018, though with some significant upheavals as well; and looks completely crushed by 2019. Gove is limping along, trapped in 2018/19 and in danger of career losses. Fox also looks enraged, frustrated and cornered in 2019. Davis is back against the wall in 2018/19 as well. And Theresa May is on the longest downhill slide of her career from now till 2020.
None of them look remotely happy or successful. The only cut off point I can see on the UK/EU relationship chart is late 2018 when tr Saturn is conjunct the composite Sun, but that’s a mild enough influence and comes round in hard aspect every 7 years and to the conjunction every 29 years. I have truly no idea how this is all going to end.
