The Brexit negotiations are following the standard EU script of doom, disaster, never-going-to-agree. So it’s tempting to see this week’s impasse ‘as the usual diplomatic dancing in the darkness before dawn breaks on a deal’, in the words of Tim Shipman of The Times. Yet the Tory true-believer insiders appear to be sanguine about the prospect of a no-deal, with Michael Gove evidently spending the bulk of his time preparing for just such.
Michel Barnier, the EU negotiator, 9 January 1951 4.40 pm La Tronche, France, looks a touch overwrought now through to late September with tr Uranus opposition his Venus/Pluto midpoint; and if birth time is exactly accurate, then has a disappointing/failure tr Neptune conjunct his Midheaven from early October to late January 2021.
But he’s not remotely in as bad a shape as David Frost, the UK negotiator, who has a catastrophic tr Neptune opposition his Mars/Pluto midpoint from late August to early October, followed by tr Neptune opposition his Mars/Uranus midpoint from early October to late January 2021 which Ebertin with his usual dramatic exaggeration describes as: ‘A fainting fit when overtaxing one’s strength, raving madness, rage, cunning and deceitful.’ Even toning that down to moderate levels it won’t be progressive whether he wants a no-deal or some-deal Brexit. He’s also got a failed-plans tr Pluto square his Mars/Neptune midpoint from now to late November. He looks frustrated and irritated over the exit at the New Year with tr Pluto trine his Mars – and somewhere along the way of 2020 or 2021 he has a panicky-failure Solar Arc Mars conjunct his Neptune.
His relationship chart with Barnier, who has an unbudgeable 8th house Mars Moon in Aquarius opposition Pluto is into plate-throwing territory with tr Uranus square the composite Sun and Uranus until late September.
Frost’s relationship with Gove is extremely fraught as well with a frustrated, trapped, impatient tr Pluto square the composite Mars from now till late November; and downbeat across the New Year. None of which sounds like a resounding joint success whichever outcome they were aiming.
Gove’s personal chart is similarly afflicted with tr Pluto square his Mars/Uranus and Uranus/Neptune midpoints now to late November this year, suggesting acute stress, losses and catastrophes; and his troubles won’t lift in 2021 with a nasty sinking feeling from tr Neptune square his Sun/Saturn and Mercury/Saturn midpoints picking up in April and running on and off till late 2022. As he no doubt surveys the proof of the pudding with the Brexit consequences becoming clear.
This would fit with the Boris Government chart indicators – see previous post August 3 2020 – which has a panicky dip from this October onwards. And many pointers on Boris, the Government and Cummings’ charts that suggest 2021 is not going to be a celebratory feste to the joys of UK freedom.
Sorry if that all sounds gloomy but they don’t look like happy campers any of them.
