There’s pressure from Angela Merkel’s party for Martin Schulz, a German MEP and President of the European Parliament (EP) to stand down in January, but there’s a feeling he may refuse. He’s another hardliner, buddies with Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, and both pro-more integration. There was criticism from Germany that the UK Brexit vote was a result of the attitudes of EU institution leaders. Getting rid of Schulz it is thought would be a forerunner to removing Juncker as well. And good luck with that.
Schulz, 20 Dec 1955, is a Sun Sagittarius, like Juncker and both have Saturn in obsessive Scorpio. Schulz, if anything, is more intransigent than Juncker since his Sun is trine a powerfully confident Pluto Jupiter, which latter is also square Saturn; and he has vengeful Mars in Scorpio as well.
His 2nd Term chart, 1 July 2014 launched on the Cardinal Grand Cross of Sun opposition Pluto square Uranus opposition Mars, so was always going to be a high-drama run. There will certainly be a major impasse and some explosive discussions in December, running into 2017.
Schulz’s relationship chart with the EU is locked-together, over-confident and veering towards the fanatical with a composite Saturn square Pluto, Sun square Jupiter and Uranus opposition Venus square Neptune.
His relationship with Merkel is heavy going over the next few months and high-wire through 2017.
