Poland seems to be rolling backwards in terms of democratic rights which is giving Brussels yet another headache and pulling demonstrators out onto the street. They are protesting about government plans to restrict journalists’ access to parliament. And the outgoing president of Poland’s highest constitutional court has accused the ruling right-wing Law and Justice party (PiS) of a systematic attempt to destroy oversight of government activity, describing the country as “on the road to autocracy”. The European Commission is to consider sanctions for what it has described as a “systemic threat to the rule of law in Poland”.
The Poland 24 Aug 1989 1.05pm Warsaw chart has a panicky-failure tr Neptune opposition Mars, on and off till late 2018; and Solar Arc Pluto opposition the Gemini Moon in late 2017 which suggests a mutinous-population feeling oppressed.
PM Beato Szydio’s swearing in chart, does have an uncertain Solar Arc Saturn square Neptune now. Though there’s a bullishly confident tr Pluto triune Jupiter in 2017/18 which doesn’t suggest much back-tracking.
The relationship chart between Poland and the EU looks very stressed through 2017 with tr Uranus opposition the composite Uranus and Mars; with a radical shift in the relationship come 2018/19 with tr Pluto opposition the composite Uranus. By 2019 tr Uranus will oppose the composite Sun, which may well lead to calls to break away altogether.
Poland acceded to the EU on 1 May 2004 which has a highly restrictive, enraged Mars Venus opposition Pluto square Moon – which is under severe strain in 2017 from tr Saturn in hard aspect to all four planets; with a disruptive tr Uranus trine Pluto and sextile Venus Mars as well. Plus Solar Arc Uranus opposition Moon, exact in early 2017; and a bad-tempered Solar Arc Mars conjunct Saturn just after mid 2017.
So it’ll be tense times and not just for Poland. Other countries also joined that day – Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia. All in different ways will be feeling aggravated and uncertain about the EU. Tr Uranus moves to conjunct the Taurus Sun of that 2004 accession chart by 2020, which is when the EU chart itself is under hugely challenging influences as tr Uranus catches its Fixed Grand Square.
Brexit may be just the beginning. .
